When you are with an award-winning actress, of course, you arepressured to be at your best, too. So I really enjoyed being with her for thesecond time in Mag-ingat ka sa...Kulam where she played my partner in themovie."

"Yes, Juday would always tell me to spend quality time with Calix [Dennis'son with Carlene Aguilar] because kids now grow up so fast. You very well knowthat Calix is my center of inspiration now. It was really such a joy to haveattended to his birthday party recently," Dennis divulged.
