A ‘quickie’ reunion with friends in L.A. FUNFARE - Ricky Lo (The Philippine Star) - May 30, 2019 - 12:00am Things are more meaningful when unplanned, more memorable when fleeting because they make you crave for more time for longer how-are-yous and how-have-you-beens. That’s what happened on the last of our recent five-day working trip to L.A. purposely to interview the stars of The Last Summer (now streaming on Netflix), marked by “quickie” meetings with friends at spare hours. My nephew Raymond de Asis Lo (The STAR’s L.A. correspondent) wanted to host an impromptu double post-birthday brunch, so between Viceroy (L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills where the Netflix junket was held) and Holiday Inn (near LAX where we were booked for a mid-morning PAL flight back to Manila), he directed Jemela Nettles (the immigration lawyer who kindly drives us around when we are in L.A.) to proceed to the … [Read more...] about A ‘quickie’ reunion with friends in L.A.

FA CUP FINAL MAN CITY WATFORD 6 0 (David Silva 26, Gabriel Jesus 38, 68 Kevin de Bruyne 61, Raheem Sterling 81, 87) Pep Guardiola hailed Manchester City’s feat of claiming the first domestic treble in English football as a bigger achievement than winning the Champions League after an emphatic 6-0 thrashing of Watford at Wembley in the FA Cup final. Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus each scored twice, while David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne netted to cap a glorious campaign with the biggest margin of victory in an FA Cup final since 1903. Watford’s wait to win their first ever major piece of silverware goes on as, after going behind, they had little answer to Guardiola’s relentless champions. Super sub Bernardo Silva’s curling cross picked out Jesus at the back post and the Brazilian was finally credited with the goal after the match despite Sterling making sure by smashing the ball into the net. City have now won all 11 meetings between these two sides by … [Read more...] about Guardiola: Treble feat better than winning Champions League
