A lot has happened six months since Leila Alcasid arrived from Australia.

Her dad Ogie Alcasid gave a quick update during the Kapamilya host/singer's mall show for his NakakaLokal album in Robinsons Magnolia.

Ogie said, “Nagwu-workshop siya sa Star Magic. Nag-billboard na rin siya sa Bench. Maraming kumukuha sa kanyang endorsements.

"Sabi ko, 'Isama niyo naman ang Tatay.'"

Is she enjoying?

"Sobra," he replied before thanking those who have been keeping her daughter's stay in Manila productive.

"Very thankful lang din sa lahat ng nakukuha niya.

"Napaka-down-to-earth kasi niyan, parang yung Nanay niya.

"'Tapos, natutuwa siya dahil siyempre kasama niya ang kapatid niya. At the same time si Nate, natutuwa rin kasi nandun ang Ate niya.

"So sa bahay, kung dati kami lang ni misis, ngayon, medyo maingay na kami. Ang sarap, ang sarap ng ganun."

Leila is his eldest with ex-wife Michelle van Eimeren.

STRICT DAD. When asked, what is it like to have a 19-year-old daughter, Ogie said, "Iba, iba ‘to."

It was only recently that he discovered his conservative and strict side as a parent.

Leila supposedly told him, "Sabi sa akin ng anak ko, 'Dad you’re so strict, but I love it.'"

He's not against the idea of his daughter having a boyfriend. In fact, Leila had a boyfriend in Australia.

"Nagka-boyfriend na siya, so alam ko na yun."

Wasn't he strict then?

"Istrikto rin kami, pero, sabi ko, 'O hayan, nagkaroon ka na ng relationship. Dumanas ka na ng pain, ‘di ba? O ngayon, dahan-dahanan natin.'

"Yung puso natin madalas niloloko tayo niyan, e."

He's cool about suitors and boyfriends, but not ready yet to become a father-in-law.

"Huwag naman. Nineteen pa lang."

COURTSHIP RULES. According to Ogie, Leila has a suitor.

And to those who have plans of courting his daughter, his first rule is: Call him.

“Ako naman, palagi kong sinasabi. Kung merong gustong makipag-date sa ‘yo, tawagan ako. May nangyari nang ganun, okay naman.

"Ang sa akin, wala namang problemang manligaw, basta magpakilala kayo sa amin. Di ba, tama naman yun?"

His second rule: If they're going out, Leila will ride in her dad's car.

This means she will meet up with her suitor at the dating place, and will go home with the driver.

"Tama," the dad of three kids affirmed.

Smiling, he added, "At siyempre sasabihin ng driver ko ang lahat ng nangyari.

"At meron akong apps na Find My Friend. Alam ko kung nasaan ang anak ko.

"E, natutuwa naman ako kasi nakuha ko yung nirerespeto niya anak ko. Sabi ko, 'Sige, basta sa kotse ko sasakay.'"

His third rule: Leila has a Cinderella curfew.

"Uuwi siya ng twelve. E di siyempre, 'Yes sir, yes sir.'''

Is the suitor from showbiz?

Ogie simply replied "basta."

STEPMOM AND MOM. Leila's mom knows about Ogie's rules.

"Siyempre, sasabihin ko muna kay Michelle, ganito ang ginawa ko. Natatawa si Michelle sa akin, 'Grabe ka, napaka-istrikto mo.'"

But so far, Leila has been "masunurin."

Ogie added, "Hindi siya sumusuway sa mga gusto ko."

How's Regine as stepmom?

He quickly answered, "Perfect. Mapagmahal, mapag-aruga."

But she doesn't really meddle in Leila's love life.

"Hindi siya nakikialam.

"Siya naman, doon siya sa pagbibihis sa anak ko. Minsan, kapag nilalapitan siya, 'Auntie Reg, what do you think?' Doon siya. Pero hindi siya yung...ako talaga."
