Before I Hit The Twig: Shake Hands With Someone Famous!


I have the opportunity today to be at the contract signing of the lease between the Church and the City of Marikina for the establishment of a FamilySearch Center in the Marikina property. It certainly was a historic event (but I'll tell more about this in my Lawyering blog as it relates to work). In this blog entry, it is enough to say that meeting Mayor Fernando and shaking hands with her is a fulfillment of one of the tasks in the book " 2001 Things To Do Before You Die".

In the past, I have also shook hands with different famous people - ranging from politicians, actors, actresses, athletes, and LDS Church leaders.

Politicians
-Pres. Erap Estrada, Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (when she was still a Vice President), Madam Imelda Marcos, Bayani Fernando, Jovito Salonga, Raul Roco, Senator Butch Abad, Congressman Rufus Rodriguez

Actors and Actresses
- Aga Mulach, Sharon Cuneta, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Manilyn Reynes, Ariel Rivera, G Toengi, Angel Locsin, Dingdong Dantes, Paulo Avelino.
