Ayon kay Kakai, bilang wardrobe assistant, bahagi raw ng kanyang trabaho ang labhan, plantsahin, at bitbitin ang mga damit ng singer.

“Ang alam ko, eight months ako na wardrobe assistant dahil nagkaroon pa kami ng pre-prod. Ako yung nagbibihis sa kanya sa wings, ang daming costume changes,” aniya.

Ikinuwento rin niya ang dinanas na hirap noong mga panahong iyon.

β€œLife was very hard back then. I needed to walk from EDSA to AFP Theater. I had to skip meals to save for every day fare to Laguna,” dagdag niya.

Ngunit sa kabila raw ng hirap ay nagsilbi raw niyang inspirasyon si Lea.

β€œThere were times I wanted to give up kasi sobrang pagod, pero kapag naririnig ko siyang kumanta, nagigising ang diwa ko,” sabi niya.

Hindi raw malilimutan ni Kakai ang mga pangyayaring yun sa kanyang buhay.

Sabi niya, “One of my best best memories that I will treasure forever.”
