oh, i see we've been hard on Tim Yap. this is rather off-topic now, but Tim Yap is a newspaper editor and so-called fashionista/metrosexual whose line of expertise is pop culture. but to be fair to him, i've seen him on TV and judging from the way he talks, i'll say he's a nice guy, no airs or pretensions about him.

what we don't want to happen here is that some people might anchor themselves on those who have access to the organizers of the visit (in particular the gathering that will happen in Greenbelt, since Greenbelt is a chi-chi [read: chic and mostly for the rich folks] place) and use the visit to boost their social visibility.

but enough of the social climbers! i do wish that Andrea's visit will be as successful as his mother's was, and that hopefully those who are in need here in my country can have the much-needed help.

just a question: is Andrea representing his mother here, or is he doing this as his own role or in his own capacity? is he on the board of any charitable organization too? thanks!

Thanks, Ice! You are truly wonderful.

Illustrado indeed is a most classy place to dine in Manila. It's synonymous to Old World Manila, back in the Spanish times. The food is divine. I've been there only once - too formal and expensive for me.

Andrea looks good in the Filipino national attire for men.

This is so unfair. Ateneo and U.P. are so near my house! Haha, Andrea reminds me of a Spanish conqueror for some reason.

Its rainy, cold and windy in Manila these days I guess Andrea misses the August heat of the Mediterranean and Southern France...but all in all, Philippines is an exotic wonderful place in summer and rainy season and you wont feel alone with the warmth and hospitality of the people..I hope Andrea is having a great time with his short stay here..

That is so nice of him! (I love the last picture)... Is this his first charity trip or has he done it before?

in that last picture you can see a large sign behind him that obviously says something about 'andrea casiraghi' but do those children even know who he is? or are they just happy someone is coming to see them... i could understand princess caroline because she is a princess but andrea? who do they think he is?

Well, it's been in the news for some time now, I bet they knew they were getting a special visitor. But as for who he is? I don't think the younger ones really know, but they might!

i don't think these kids are really aware of their royal visitor. after all, the Philippine press is rather oblivious to the world of royalty. we get very little news about royalty. :dry:

as far i've seen, very little. the dailies have no mention of him yet and i have yet to see a newscast about his visit. probably during the weekend the newspapers will finally publish [an] article/s about his visit.

i can't believe our media is paying little attention to this noble visit--and this handsome prince! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the photos!!!..From the pic above, I wonder what song are they dancing to.It looks like a John Travolta and Uma Thurman dance in Pulp Fiction. ..Its nice to see Andrea doing all these, mingling with these kids, representing his mom on this charity visit..I appreciate all his efforts, I think he looks much sexier doing all these ..

It’s nice to see Andrea in a Barong Tagalog… Maybe by now, he can tell his Uncle Albert that the proper way to wear it is with an undershirt beneath it!

I agree, RhapsodyBrat, that there is very little news here about royalty – and if there are, it’s on the British royals and to a significantly lesser degree, the Japanese royals (although, interest for the latter was high only during Naruhito and Masako’s wedding).

Anyway, back to Andrea (sorry for being slightly OT there)… because of limited information, I can even believe that some of the people he meets as well as some of the local media could not put it together that “Andrea Casiraghi” is a member of the Monegasque royal family even if he is not styled as “Prince”.

But, for all we know… maybe they did plan for this to be a low-key visit compared to his mother’s. There were news on Princess Caroline’s visit prior to her arrival but I did not know that Andrea was coming until I saw it here in TRF. Oh well, it’s (after all) his debut on the job and maybe what they wanted was a “soft launch”. Nevertheless, (hopefully) the winds will change in the next few days and we’ll get reports on his remaining activities, especially the visits to Ateneo and UP.
