Star Circle Quest Season One holds a rare reunion

The first batch of Star Circle Quest questors got together for a rare reunion when Sandara Park was recently in the Philippines for a brief vacation. Last August 13, Raphael Martinez, Michellle Madrigal, Errol Abalayan, Joseph Bitangcol, Neri Naig, and Sandy met for dinner in Makati. Roxanne Guinoo, Joross Gamboa, and Melissa Ricks were unable to make it because of prior commitments but they had met Sandy earlier that day for a reunion on Ruffa and Ai (the reunion episode airs August 26.) Hero Angeles was in Tagaytay taping a teleserye and couldn’t make it to the dinner either.
Some of the former questors had not seen each other for as long as three years. Errol and Neri had retired from showbiz and settled back into their normal lives. Raphael or RJ is trying to get back into shape for another shot at showbiz. Michelle just finished doing a teleserye while Joseph is part of Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr. presents Tiagong Akyat which premiered August 15. Sandy has been making waves in Korea and the rest of the world as part of the girl group 2NE1.
The old friends swapped stories and there was a fair amount of teasing when Joseph arrived. Joseph had admitted at the ABS-CBN trade show that was held that same night that he was nervous about meeting with Sandara again. But aside from a few good-natured jokes, all was good between the former couple.
Sandy gave her friends copies of 2NE1’s mini-album and the group from YG Entertainment taped interviews with the questors for the 2NE1TV features. The group would have wanted to go to a videoke place but they were too tired, especially since Sandara was up at 4 am to make it for her 8 am flight to Manila that morning.
