The King And I season starts this weekend
Two shoppers were on their way to the parking lot after a spree in a mall in Mandaluyong when they noticed a huge billboard. They looked up and saw the King and Anna smiling gleefully. These majestic greetings are extended to motorists upon arriving in North EDSA, Quezon City and on other major thoroughfares in the metro. Even a busy commuter could not help but marvel on the very colorful The King And I- draped bus he is riding on his way to work. Or go home and ask your dad if he also saw the smiles of the King and Anna on his morning paper.
We are giving you not just an entertainment piece. From the lessons and happy tunes, we are sculpting a landscape of love- love for yourself, love for your country, courage, gender equality, openness to new ideas and starting the weekend of September 15, we call it The King And I season.
