Fourteen years since he became the first winner of ABS-CBN's "Star Circle Quest," Hero Angeles still remembers the criticisms of the judges of the talent search, including Boy Abunda.
Angeles and Abunda came face-to-face anew in the episode of "Tonight With Boy Abunda" that aired Tuesday. In the interview, Angeles, a visual artist, talked about his miniature-art workshop, and his upcoming role as a gay man in a teleserye.
But before the two delved into these topics, Abunda asked Angeles what words of his has stuck with the then-aspiring actor to this day.
Angeles answered: "Para kang iced tea na walang ice."
"Sorry, ha," Abunda told Angeles. "I apologize. Hindi ko alam kung paano ko 'yun nasabi. Basta nag-a-apologize ako."
Angeles, who has recently resumed his showbiz career after a long hiatus, responded by saying Abunda's words actually helped him in his craft.
