Angels do return to places they love. To capture once more again the feeling and awesomeness of memories that never ceased. They linger there to guide, to comfort anew and cherish life.
In the case of actor Lance Raymundo, his journey back to Baguio City this time around is one of the most memorable experiences of his life. This is his second life, and when angels brought him back there, life could never be the same again.
“Parang ginusto ng Diyos na makapag-perform ako sa Baguio City to bring back some childhood memories”, Lance told a blogger one time. “After our performance of our Senakulo 2015 there a couple of weeks back, I decided to prolong my stay there in Baguio City para makapag-bakasyon na rin at the same time. It’s my most-needed respite after a heavy and very demanding portrayal as our Lord Jesus Christ in the said play. And I can say by now, this episode of my life is a very nostalgic one.”
Pictures won’t lie. Just look at the pictures below of Lance together with his mom- Mrs. Nina Raymundo- embracing each other in the same place in Baguio City. It was like DEJA-VU. A mystery of life. The young Lance with Twiggy-like hair, and the older Lance with a face that looked so much younger than today.
“That vacation of mine in Baguio City this time around that I’m older gave me a new strength in life”, Lance said again. “Buti na lang at matapang ako. I am facing life anew with greater courage, individuality and compassion. It’s such a meaningful life that God has given me.”
And spending and bonding anew with his family (who all joined Lance in his latest Baguio City respite) was totally important to Lance. It’s his family who gave an all-out support to him in every kind of endeavor he takes.
“My mom, my kuya Rannie, my dad, and all the rest- they simply gave me more faith and courage”, Lance revealed. “They are the ones that kept me going through the years. That’s why I really love them.”
On the next blog feature of Lance (one of SSSIP’s AWE’s blog site favorite “baby”), Lance will reveal his role on his next film that’s currently shooting. It’s one of his most challenging roles to date, which came just right after portraying our Lord Jesus Christ.
“It’s a surprise I was given that kind of role in my latest film”, Lance said. “Almost as surprising for me playing Jesus Christ in our Senakulo. I will tell more about that role next time.”
So just keep posted. More on Lance next time around at SSSIP’s AWE blog site.
Miss you, Papa Lance.
