Comic John Lapus's first trip to Los Angeles and SanFrancisco was for a series of shows with the now defunct"Tabing Ilog" cast (Kaye Abad,Desiree del Valle, Baron Geisler, Paolo Contis). But it was all work and noplay. Not wanting to turn into a dull boy, John, known in showbiz as UniversalSweet because he is sweet, vowed: "Ishall return." Two months later, he did. "Uy, record daw 'yon, sabi ng mga Pinoys doon. 'Yung two months pa langpinapabalik ka na nila!" This time, he made sure there was time for thesights, food, fun, and souvenir photos. This month, John might just wing hisway back again. "May offers. 'Pagnatuloy, talagang parang ginagawa ko na lang Tuguegarao ang Amerika," he giggles. "Taray, 'di ba?"
