an excerpt from an article in The Philippine Star, 4 December 1998

Fans of the popular youth-oriented television show "T.G.I.S." will have an early Christmas treat today, Dec. 4, when the stars of the show led by Antoinette Taus and Dingdong "Inaki" Dantes hold a fans day at Boom na Boom carnival in Pasay City.

The Christmas Fans Day will feature song and dance numbers from the "T.G.I.S." stars, plus parlor games with the fans and an autograph session with Antoinette and Inaki. The activities will start at 8 p.m. at the Boom na Boom stage area.

Dingdong (Raphael Dantes in real life), on the other hand, is popularly know as Jr. Wacks after his character, Inaki Torres, in "The Next Generation T.G.I.S." He also started his career as an advertising model until he signed up with the weekly TV show.

Incidentally, Antoinette and Dingdong are doing a movie entitled "Honey, My Love, So Sweet." The duo is also regularly paired co-hosting the noontime show "Eat Bulaga" on Saturdays.
