The Latest of Baba Yap

We like to party. This statement came from Baba Yap (John Geesnell Yap II in real life) who turned a year "wiser" (age not revealed) on October 16. During his birthday, this party organizer and event specialist did "meditation" a peace of mind! And he received a very special gift from someone special, the "apple" of his eyes.

Baba is the big boss of Lazer Party Club. If people think that Tagbilaran City's nightlife is deadly boring and has no place to party, obviously they've never been to Lazer Party Club (located at the posh Bohol Tropics Resort).

Lazer Party Club is still the best party hang-out in the city with its resident disk jock DJ Macky Magic, Models Unlimited and the hottests bands, molecules (performing every Fridays and Saturdays), Muddcake (performing every Friday) and Centerstage (performing every Wednesday and Saturday).

Lazer introduces something new once in a while. This year, it has invited notable artists and performers like Kim Chiu and MYMP (Make Your Momma Proud), Kim Chiu publicly announced she has a crush on Baba (Kim Chiu has relatives in Cortes, Bohol and she visited Bohol more often when she was relatively "unknown" in showbiz). It also invited stand-up comedians from Manila who knocked down the house Superlaughin!On October 11, Lazer concluded its freestyle dance contest featuring the best and the finest freestyle dancers ever in Bohol. That is discovering talents.

Another historic envent happened last night was the performance of Luningning (Lea Carla Santos in real life ) of ABS-CBN'w Wowowee who did a sultry performance that wowed the crowd.

There's something more after the Halloween Party, don't miss the chance to witness the country's premier band, Side A on December 20 at the New Sandugo Grand Ballroom in a pre-Christmas concert.

Men (many, many of us) envy Baba. He has the fame , money, good looks (blessed with looking like Greek nythological hunk Paris making him an eye candy for the ladies and fags), charisma, and talent. Despite all these attributes, he remains humble and nice.

How about girls? And the most intriguing question, ahem is when he will settle down. We don't know -- yet, do we?

(Full name : Jose Maria Flores Lacaba Jr. Usual byline: Jose F. Lacaba. The late Jose Sr. was nicknamed Pepe, so Jr. was nicknamed Pepito, the little Pepe. In college Pepito's nickname got shortened to Pito, but the latest gave rise to jokes about armpits, so Pit was respelled Pete.)
