Currently… XLR8 and Show LuoApril 13, 2010 at 6:19 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 12 Comments
Uh…. I don’t really know what title to give this post.
I recently joined XLR8’s official forum and made friends not just with XLR8 fans but J-pop to JE fans as well. And my blog buddies and friends in real life, too, are there!
I really like XLR8, especially Caleb Santos, who is very talented and good-looking. Guess what? Just now two of the group’s members just added me in their facebook and replied to my messages! I sent those two personal messages because I want them to feel appreciated because of their efforts. They’re really friendly and considerate. They’re funny, too. I hope that even if they become more popular they’d be the same humble people.
I have also been trying to explain to anti-XLR8 and haters those plagiarism/copying issues and convince them to at least respect the group, if not like them. With more haters rising, they even get more recognized. But still, they do have supporters who back them up, especially these days when those haters are really going below the belt. They’re just starting so let’s give them a break, please.
Really, their songs are super nice and meaningful. I hope to see them this summer during their mall tour in SM Manila. Sigh. And then I’ll be asking them to autograph the album I bought. Grabe, abot na abot lang sila ng mga fans.
I’m just glad that they’re working hard and earning recognition step by step. I hope they continue to shine and bless God for their daily blessings, especially the wonderful blessing of fans who inspire them by supporting them even in the midst of criticism. Go guys!
Just to introduce them…
My favorite: Caleb. He’s a God-fearing person who really knows how to amaze me with his unique and soothing vocals. He’s my inspiration to grow taller. 5’10! I like his covers of Like a Rose and Change your Mind in youtube! I like his personality very much.
This Japinoy singer is also a comedian when he’s with Kuya Germs. His smiling face and the fact that he chose to be in the Philippines is what I like about him.
I told him that he’s the most friendly and accomodating in the group. He’s always ready to meet new friends and share his knowledge about something. Kuya Kiko, with Aki, is the most makulit. I was told that he was one of the best dancers in the group. (Parang si Ohno?)
Kuya AJ is Aga Muhlach’s half-brother. Although he was the last to member to join XLR8, he proves to be a great talent and asset to the group. He has appeared in commercials, too!
Second to the tallest member, he was the one who thought of the name’s group. Issues about the name being the same with the robot guy in Ben Ten, I’ll just comment that he DID derive it from that. Anyway, the name’s working out ! I like it.
Kuya MM is one-half of the Magno twins. He’s very stylish. Many think he’s Korean but he’s Filipino. His voice is really good and melodious. He and MJ seem to lead the vocals a lot.
Kuya MJ wrote two of the songs in their album and co-written another. This musically talented guy, like MM, has powerful vocals and has humour, too.

I first saw him in Hot Shot with which he starred with Jerry Yan and Wu Chun. This is the first time that I really became a fan of a Taiwanese singer and dancer! I really thought he was cute and funny, even in Hot Shot. I just realized that he can actually sing and dance through Channel V asia where he appears a lot.
And just these days I began to download his songs Show Time, Twinkle (ft. Koda Kumi – full english song), and Hot Shot. Show Luo, also called Xiao Zhu (little pig) because he was a chubby child before, also hosts 100% entertainment which is really very funny, giving me LOL’s all the time. Let me add that he is the prince of the Amis tribe because his mother is an aboriginal princess of the tribe.
Let me also tell you that SHOW LUO LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE NINO. Youthfulness is also there. He’s actually older than going-30 yrs old Ohno by one year!
So, currently, and as always, I’m listening to Asian music, and I’m glad I appreciate my own continent’s music and people. God bless Asia!
