Coco Martin and cast of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” all geared up for ‘Isang Pamilya Tayo’s’ first tour stop in the Middle East

November 14, 2016 (Dubai, Middle East) – With less than a month to go before the “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pasasalamat’s” first tour stop in the Middle East and just as tickets have been released, the show’s stars are already gearing up for The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) major event on December 2 and 3 in Al Khobar and Dubai.

Kicking off ABS-CBN Middle East’s 20th anniversary and part of ABS-CBN’s 2016 Christmas theme “Isang Pamilya Tayo,” the event brings together key members of the cast of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” led by King of Primetime Coco Martin along with “ASAP” Soul Sessions’ Daryl Ong, to celebrate with Filipinos overseas as one family.

“Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo” may be Martin’s second time in the Middle East but this early, he is looking forward for the chance to see his kabayans in the Middle East again.  “Bago ako naging artista, nabuhay ko ang pamilya ko sa pagsisikap ko sa abroad.  Kaya naman malapit sa akin ang mga overseas Filipinos. – naiintindihan ko ang kanilang pinagdadaanan.”  Martin adds, “Kahit pumunta na ako rito noon para sa ‘Walang Hanggan,’excited akong makasama silang muli para sa “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo.”

While “The Voice” finalist Daryl Ong may be a regular in TFC events, he looks forward to his first Middle East event.  “At TFC, we are always expected to deliver world-class performances wherever we perform.  But I hope to bring a new flavor into this first installment of ‘FPJ’s Áng Probinsyano’s overseas show.”

Joining Martin and Ong is comedian and Martin’s sidekick in the series, Pepe Herrera, a literal TFC first-timer.  “Noong unang sinabi sa akin na magiging bahagi ako ng ‘FPJ’s Áng Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo,’ laking gulat ko.  Isipin niyo na lang ang sopresa ko noong sinabing, isasama ako ng TFC sa event at dito sa Middle East pa.”

The three will perform in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo” Al Khobar leg on December 2.

Meantime, performing for the Dubai leg are some of the “Ang Probinsyano” cast led by Martin and joined by Dubai first-timers Herrera, Princess of the Dance Floor Yassi Pressman, and Onyok.

Pressman admits this too is her first TFC event in the region as well and she us excited. “Like my co-stars. I am also looking forward to my first time there. On the other hand, I live with two cultures, having been born in Hong Kong with my British dad and Filipina mom.  So being with my kababayans overseas also feels like home.”

All is not complete without the teleserye’s indomitable Onyok, who on the other hand, has already performed for TFC via “ASAP Live in New York.”  Dropping his famous line, Onyok shares his excitement: “Ayos! Sobra po akong masaya.  Makakasama kong muli sina Kuya Coco, makakapasyal pa ako.”

The Dubai leg of “Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo” happens on December 3 at the Al Nasr Leisureland in Dubai, UAE.

Meantime, joining them for an afternoon of motivational talk is multi-awarded host (Golden Dove Award and CMMA Hall of Fame award) of DZMM Radyo Negosyo,” Carl Balita.  Known as a multi-faceted personality in the Philippines, he is an inspiration for budding entrepreneurs, having built business ventures (microfinance and training company, review centers, medical centers, café and a lot more).  Because of this, the two-time Quezon City Chamber of Commerce President and Chairman has earned the Go Negosyo Youth Enabler Awardee and UST Outstanding Alumni Award for Business and Mass Media.  Moreover, he has been invited to speak in different engagements here and abroad.

Truly, from entertainment to business, kabayans can turn to ABS-CBN TFC like family, in their journey overseas.
