Where are they now....?

Good weekend everyone....! Allow me to test your memory today, naalala nyo pa ba ang movie na "KARATE KID"....? If you don't, let me refresh your memory again.... Okay tumalikod ka muna at nang mabatukan kita ha-ha....! Joks onli, baka busy ka lang sa kalalakwatsa nung time na yun kaya na miss mo ng 10 dozen times din he-he....!

The movie was about a young american kid who went to japan with an old karate master friend expecting to have a good time, but instead was caught in a family feud and was being bullied by the nephew of the other family.... He found himself deeply involved in a serious trouble and was left with no other choice but to fight and defend himself and his new found friends.... Ganyan lang kaikli yun he-he....! Just a summary only of course, but in the real movie you'll find yourself getting carried away, sinking, drifting, and being washed-off by each and every scene.... It was quite an explosive movie that time....

It all happened when just recently i stumbled upon an article about the japanese main girl character in that movie, and i found out that she is half filipino pala....! How come i didn't know that....?! I've seen that movie over and over for maybe about 10 dozen times but never had i stumbled on any print, television, or radio media ads saying that the girl pala in that movie na kahit bata pa ako nun ay naging crush ko pa yata ay half pinoy pala....! Anyways, that was long time ago and that only proved that i was destined to be a real astig pala ha-ha....!

The girls name is Tamlyn Tomita, daughter to a japanese father and a filipino mother.... I just wonder where those people are now and what are they being busy about in the present time....? That includes also the karate kid himself, Ralph Macchio.... While Pat Morita, Karate Kid's Mr. Miyagi, died at the age of 73 in November of 2005....

Mga kamote sa kukote lang to na gusto ko lang i-share, just curious lang about those celebrities that had suddenly vanished from the limelight.... Or were they....? Probably it was just due to a limited feed of television programs, shows, and movies shown in pinas from out side sources before that we've missed to keep-up with them.... I've also inserted here some of their photos before and the present ones....

Waaa, Karate Kid. Unforgettable ang move nya doon. Teka, paano ko ba ikukwento/ide-describe?! Basta naka-curve ang arms nya na parang pakpak ng ibon. Tapos nakataas at naka-bend ang tuhod ng left leg nya. LOL.

"Wax on, wax off," is what I remember most in the first Karate Kid movie. It's good to know this little bit of information about one of our own--though only half-Filipino.

Thanks for sharing.

Sabi ko na nga ba'ng meron pang hindi nakakalimot ha-ha....! Alam nya ba na lahat ng sequels nyan ay napanood ko na, tumigil lang talaga ako nung sa last sequel ay naging babae yung bida kasi mas may impact ang moves ni Daniel 'San' kisa dun sa Chick 'San' ha-ha....! Thanks Mel and Mari....! =D
