They call themselves the AshRald, Geraldnatix, Popsters, or the fans of Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson.
And last Sunday, March 25, most of them trooped to the 55 Events Place on Tomas Morato as early as 6:00 a.m., to have a blast with their Kapamilya idols.
It was the movie Catch Me I'm Falling (March 2011) that brought these people together. The followers' number doubled after the release of Sarah and Gerald's second project Won't Last A Day Without You (December 2011).
And now that things are turning from reel to real, the fan clubs's membership have shot up.
Smiling, Gerald said during the meet and greet session, "Sobrang nakakatuwa, kapag may dumadagdag na member, mas maraming blessings.
"So, we're just really happy na kahit papaano ay natuwa sila dito sa Fans Day."
For her part, Sarah remarked, "Itong mga pagkakataong ito, nakakapag-bonding kami at nakakasama namin ang mga supporters namin."
But the highlights of the day was, of course, the "kilig moments," which included a duet of the Carpenters' song "I Won't Last A Day Without You."
At first, Gerald was hesitant to join Sarah, who asked, "Kakanta ka, di ba? Kakanta ka?"
Holding her hand, the guy replied, "Puwede bang samahan na lang kita?"
Sarah let go of her partner's hand, and answered, "Hindi ako papayag na hindi ka kakanta!"
Gerald then asked the audience, "Kailangan ko ba talagang kumanta?"
In unison, they yelled, "Oo!"
What ensued was a screamfest.
Each time Sarah would touch Gerald's face, or the latter would draw her face closer to his, the crowd would giggle.
WHAT'S THE REAL SCORE? In a separate interview, both said that what their followers see on television and public events are not for publicity's sake.
At press time, Sarah described their friendship as "very comfortable."
Gerald seconded, "Siyempre, kumportable na kami sa isa't isa. Kung ano 'yong nakita ninyo [dati], mas close kami ngayon.
"We're just happy na gano'n kami at sana natuwa rin ang mga fans kahit papaano.
"But on a personal level, masaya kami. Masaya kami."
The fans' day was sponsored by the popular fast food chain Jollibee, which is being endorsed by Gerald and Sarah.
