Raymond Lauchengco's Classic Romance: Walking On Sunshine The Series

I got an SMS one afternoon from my wife last week. "Dear, I hope we can watch Raymond Lauchengco perform in a concert. I'm a big fan of his."

Raymond Lauchengco in a concert? Sure, I saw his music CD some time back with revivals of his 80s hits. But I did not know he was doing concerts recently. I'm sure my wife saw a schedule lineup with him in it.

"Check the schedules at http://raymondlauchengco.com," came another SMS.

Oooh... this is going to be a real nice change from the usual walks in the parks and restaurant dine-ins.

Raymond Lauchengco, I'm sure, is a familiar name to you. His rise to stardom started with the 80s movie Bagets. His singing career prospered simultaneously with his acting. Then he went off to pursue other interests.

Watching the Bagets DVD last year (released in celebration of the movie's 20th anniversary) and their interviews really brought a lot of happy memories of my high school. Yep, this concert will indeed be something I shall enjoy as well.

In other news... I was looking around for a Bagets photo to display here when I came upon this news... the cast of Bagets 1 and 2 are planning a reunion movie and a soundtrack featuring today's bands! Both will definitely be worth watching out for! Read the news at the Manila Times Internet Edition. Photo at left borrowed from the same article.


  1. That would be an interesting show to watch. Sama sana ako pero kuwento ka na lang ha.

  2. Wow! We are all old! I remember when I was a kid, my parents would watch their idols and say they are old. We are now at that stage.
    How time flies...

    Hey Nick, thanks for this! See you on the 29th!


  4. Leah: Lipad ka na dito sa Pinas! Nood tayo!

    Ate Fionski: Oo nga ano...

    Mia: You're welcome!

  5. I am not really familiar with the Bagets show then. But I do know the actors in it.

    ALso, I can't help but sing "BLue Jeans" in my head right now. heheheh

    Hope you guys have a fabulous time watching the concert. :)

  6. I was a fan of Raymond Lauchengco during Bagets time. I love his song Farewell to You My Friend.

    Have a great time at the concert. That date is very significant to me 'coz I turn one year older on that day. :)

    Nice photo of the Bagets. Bakit wala yata si Aga.

  7. Uyyy advanced happy birthday, Rach!

    Oo nga...wala si Aga. But then again, maraming wala dun sa photo. Haven't seen JC Bonnin in ages. I heard he became a priest.
