Alrighty! Got again some free time. Well actually, aside from my school's centennial celebration last July 1st (Happy 100 years SAA!), there's nothing much to talk about these past few weeks until recently, a very sad turn of events in the Philippine entertainment industry. I am talking about no other than the passing of the King of Comedy, Dolphy.

As a young child in the past, I was able to reach the time of the popular sitcom 'Home Along D Riles' and let me tell you, it was one of those shows that I curoiusly watch with enjoyment because of the comic relief it brings. Well, laughter is the best medicine after all.

When we Filipinos think of comedy, it is very likely that Dolphy would be one of the personalities that would always come to mind. Indeed, from his humble beginnings as a mere peanut vendor in cinemas to become one of the most respected entertainers in the industry, Dolphy is well deserving of the recognitions that was given to him.

I would like to extend my respects to the Quizon family for the loss. May God bless your family and may eternal rest grant unto Dolphy and may God's perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.

With his passing, he will be missed by millions, especially those who have worked with him, those who had encounters with him and to those who would always tune in to his shows and go watch his movies. It was said, Dolphy may be gone but comedy lives on. So I say, thank you Dolphy!
