The local entertainment scene is saddened by the untimely death of Danny Javier, one of the three members of the iconic Apo Hiking Society.
Danny died of a lingering illness and his colleagues in showbiz are one in saying that the local Tin Pan Alley has lost a formidable and talented musician.
There are many popular entertainers who are disenchanted with the sudden demise of Danny, one of them the actress, singer, stand-up comedienne and composer Tessie Tomas.
Tessie penned this message on her Facebook wall:
“We’re gonna miss you, Danny. How lucky I was to have a chance to visit you 1st week of October. You were such a good host—for lunch your cook prepared—‘yung maasim talaga na sinigang na bangos (the soured sautéed milkfish)’ and adobong chicken. Plus your fave ensaladang ampalaya (bitter gourd salad). We had such a good time for like 2 and a half hours! Just talking about the good old days of ‘Walanghiya Talaga,’ friends, and life in general. And just when I was about to leave, you said: ‘Magbiko ka muna (Eat biko—a Filipino delicacy sticky rice in coconut milk and sugar--first)’ just so I would stay for a few more minutes.
“I’m gonna miss you—your music, wit, ‘pagkakalog (being funny)’ at pagka-pilosopo (being philosophical)’ at times.”
