Angel Locsin confirmed she will be attending the first ABS-CBN Ball, which will be held at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel on Saturday, September 29.
“Yes, surprisingly, pupunta ako,” said Angel, adding that this is only the second time she’ll be attending a ball in the 10 years that she has been a Kapamilya.
Prior to being called ABS-CBN Ball, this was known as the Star Magic Ball—an annual gathering of artists under Star Magic, the network's talent management arm, and invited celebrity guests.
The first time Angel attended the Star Magic Ball was in 2008.
She was the date of her former boyfriend Luis Manzano.
Angel continued, “Usually, ako, tamad mag-attend ng mga ganito.
“But ito, I’m very excited kasi first time na ABS-CBN Ball talaga, so gusto kong ma-meet ang mga Kapamilya natin.
“So, yeah, lalabas ako ng lungga ko, a-attend ako ng ball.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and a select group of entertainment reporters interviewed Angel at the media preview of Avon Fashions Bag Collection.
It was held Thursday, September 27, at Marquis Events Place in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
When PEP.ph asked if she’s bringing a date, Angel hinted she may not ask her boyfriend-film producer Neil Arce to be her escort at the ABS-CBN Ball.
Angel said, “I think solo. Though may mga kasama ako bago… I think maglalakad yata sa red carpet.
“I’m not sure kung meron akong kasama. Di pa ako sure dun, kung may kasama ako o ako lang mag-isa.”
Angel went on to say that she will be wearing a Popo Go creation for the Ball.
“Di ko pa nakikita ang damit. Wala pa akong idea kung anong damit.
“Pero I’m sure, sa magic ni Popo Go, kayang-kaya na yun.
"Magkakagulatan na lang kami at sana magulat din kayo," she beamed.
