Matinee idol and award-winning actor Dennis Trillo went on a three-day work-and-leisure trip to Hong Kong last February. The work part was a show for the overseas Filipino workers, courtesy of the Globe Kabayan card.
The leisure part involved visiting HK’s latest attraction—the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Dennis also went around shopping for pasalubong for his parents and siblings, but most of his spare time was spent inside HMV (His Master’s Voice), a well-known music and video retail store that has branches around the world. A film buff who collects original DVDs, Dennis went to HMV in search of rare and obscure film titles.
“Siguro, kung isa-sum-up, mga worth P15,000 ang nabili niyang DVDs,” the actor’s manager, Popoy Caritativo, recalls. “’Tapos, noong araw ng flight namin pabalik ng Manila, gumising siya nang maaga para bumalik na naman sa HMV. Hindi pa nasiyahan. E, nine a.m. pa pala nagbubukas. So, tumunganga pa siya doon.”
