MANILA, Philippines – December 21, Friday, marks the end of the Maya calendar, and doomsayers believe this means that the word is going to end.
One day before the so-called end of the world, Philippine Star entertainment editor Ricky Lo asked several celebrities on how they would spend their last day on earth for his column that was published on Thursday.
Here are some of their answers, as reported by Lo:
Actress Susan Roces: I am attending a wedding tonight on Roxas Boulevard. If I have good company, I might wait until 12 midnight by the sea. I will make sure I am awake when the clock strikes 12 to witness for myself how the world will end. Will I still be able to tell you?
Actor Eddie Garcia: If the world ends today, I’ll spend my last day as I do on any other day. Anyway, the world is ending. When you are dead, you are dead.
Actress and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos: I will spend it with my family and we will all go TOGETHER!!!
Actor and Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.: I’d like to spend it with my family and just savor every moment together. I will also grab the chance to thank all the people who supported me all the way. I know I wouldn’t be who and what I am now without them. Lastly, I’d like to have a quiet time with God to thank Him for all the blessings He has bestowed on me and my family. Truly, He is the source of everything that I have. I just want to lift all the glory and honor to Him.
Actress and former Miss Universe Gloria Diaz: I would have our last supper, get my kids and other family members and my friends together…and then pray, eat and talk about the past.
Singer Kuh Ledesma: I would pray a lot and share Jesus to those who don’t know Him and tell them that salvation is a gift because He already paid for all our sins on the cross. Ephesians 2:8-9
Singer and actor Ogie Alcasid: I would be with my entire family, praying. We would wait for our rejoicing with our Farther in heaven.
Boxing wife Jinkee Pacquiao: I would spend my last day on earth in prayer…praying for all the people and our nation.
Singer Basil Valdez: Let me quote Matthew 24:36 — “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Therefore, I would most probably be at home on Dec. 21, watching TV.
Actor and director Cesar Montano: I will still do the same. I won’t change anything. I will live each day like it’s my last day. Always for God’s glory!
Singer and actor Christian Bautista: I’ll spend it tweeting everyone I know, “Guys, the world is not going to end today. Relax!”
Composer Ryan Cayabyab: Hard to think what I would do. I would probably be writing a new musicale or a huge choral-symphonic work to be played by a host of angels as doomsday wears on! In other words, I would probably be doing what I normally do on any given ordinary day.
