In between travels: The legend of Elvis lives on in Enchanted Kingdom

Lagalog is a bit tied up with work and commitment so I think a short post is in order in beween travel stories. Anyway, I'll let you in on a secret - O share my birthday with the rock and roll king, Elvis. So when I got the chance to go to the Elvis mania event in Enchanted Kingdom last Saturday in commemoration of the king's birth month, I can only happily oblige to have fun going down music memory lane.With the current state of pop music, it's really amazing how the elvis legend lives on. 14 Elvis fanatics paraded and strutted their stuff, most in their 50's and 60's but in the end, the younger generation won when twentysomething Eric Alvarez of Laguna swept the judges and spectators' fancy with an updated Elvis look (no flared pants here), killer pipes and mean dance moves. Ed Agbayari and Jun Capili took the runner-up honors to lead the charge of the older but still hipswaying generation. Kudos to Enchanted Kingdom for partnering with the Elvis Presley Friendship Club for this tribute.Enchanted Kingdom has lined up this and many other events to keep EK fanatics busy leading to the 2009 summer season. for more info, email eldarthewizard@enchantedkingdom.com.ph or call 830.2111-16.
