Singer-actress Rica Peralejo couldn’t help but feel emotional visiting ABS-CBN recently.

She wrote on social media: “This hallway, next to my own home, has been the space of my childhood. Everything feels different while also everything feels familiar. Like it was only yesterday. Part of me is emotional, and maybe that comes with your 40s and you realize so much of what shaped your life. How some things began.”

According to Rica, it reminded her of her dreams as a young, eager performer and all the hard work that came with it.

“It also reminded me of my sister. She was the one who brought me into this building. I entered ABSCBN that day as a regular kid with an ice cream stain on her peach shirt she bought on sale in Cinderella, and went out with a new direction in her hands,” she added.

“TOO. MANY. MEMORIES. TOO. MANY. DEFINING. MOMENTS. Nag-asap lang naman dapat diba?.”

Rica’s visit coincided with her return on the longest-running Sunday musical-variety show “ASAP” performing alongside Zsa Zsa Padilla, Regine Velasquez, Nikki Valdez, and Jolina Magdangal.

Many netizens bombarded the comment section of her post.

“Parang bumalik din kami sa pagkabata.”

“You were one of the most iconic artists of early 2000s and will remain iconic forever.”

“…batang 90’s here used to have notebook na picture mu ung nasa cover haha and you didn’t age..”

“Watched you kanina… walang kupas ang ganda!!! At ang ganda ng harmony nyo altogether. Great job @ricaperalejo!!!”

“Nostalgic feeling habang nanunuod ako kanina. missing my Nene days…galing mo pa din po kumanta miss Rica.”
