Very classy looking HS grad pic! Speaking of school, did Rob graduate from the CA university/college system? If so, what does he think of Univ. of So. Cal (USC)? I am going there next year (civil engineer major). Thanks for your insight!

Very cute pics....lucky your mom took lots of photos of you when you were a baby. Being the youngest, I don't have enough baby pics to fill up 4 pages of an album. (Poor me!) In some pics, I see some silmilarities with baby Nic. I can tell now she is going to be a very pretty little girl.... mana sa Ninang...he, he. Your pics brought back a lot of memories: Mini skirts, puff sleeves, big shirts, flared pants...all too groovy! :-D

gorgeous irene said...

nice pics. can you post some of your songs... please

Lea Salonga said...

He graduated from USC, and he enjoyed it. Then again (and I quote him directly) "education is what you make of it."

Nice photos, Lea. I'm your number one fan fron Mexico. I was wondering, what are your plans for the future? You will continue singing in musicals, won't you?

Mae Florence said...

Hi lea, my baby's name is Nicole too. I was surprised we had the same choice. Don't worry I didn't copy it, i just knew about it lately . Hehehe! My baby was born May 18, 2006. Lucky your Nicole, you're so patient with breasfeeding. Hope we can share baby stories. I have been your fan since you graduated valedictorian in Montessori. Long before Ms. Saigon days. You were my inpiration when I studied so hard to be valedictorian too. I really wanted to be like you. too bad I couldn't sing. :) Take care.

lizzette dela peña said...

Hello Ms. Lea!:) Did gerard spend his grade school and high school years in OB Montessori? Does he have any upcoming projects because we miss him so much especially when he conducts?

Several years back 1980-81, i was with mrs. soliven at o.b. when this little girl approached me and extended her hand saying ... hello i am LEA SALONGA ! wow that was great! your were quite famous then, even more famous now ! BTW, am doing your CCP poster on your forthcoming TOMORROW show.

Ma.Carmen Yulo said...

Oye!!! Nicole looks like you in some pictures.... how funny some pictures, I still remember how you and gerard looked like when you were kids. Gosh we're getting old hahahaha

ginny banaag said...

this photo reminds me of your KLIM days ;-)

Hey, Lea: Congratulations...Nicole is adorable! I have a beautiful and exuberant daughter myself and life has been just wonderful! Anyway, now that you reside in Manila, how is Rob able to watch his college football games, specifically USC's games? By the way, SC is doing well against Arkansas right now. Do you get ESPN there in the Philippines? :)

Baccic Cleto said...

I love this pic, Lea!!!!
It seems like a "Diva" in her final number.
God bless you, you were born for that!!!!!

Li'l Dove Feather said...

jennifer illustre said...

has anyone ever told you about babies with really dark, shiny eyes that communicate? yup. they're very intelligent. bet your mom was so entertained when you were born...

and now...oh my God! you have your own baby finally! your baby's really lucky to have you and your hubby for her parents. i still have a hang over watching your wedding video clips on youtube...

jennifer illustre said...

i grew up listening to my "small voice" casette tape...back then they were selling at p45 each...hahaha! it took a while for me to accept you're already a mom because this image of you got stuck in my head. hahaha! and last night, knowing that i'm an avid fan of yours, a local group called da capo (string quartet) made me sing "tomorrow" while having dinner at chocolate kiss bahay ng alumni, up diliman. hahaha!

moi . said...

nostalgic! brings me back to my childhood, where my brothers & I will sing your songs from "Small Voice". I loved (still do!) "Where is Love" & "Rainbow Connection"... your smile never really changed. :) well, I know my younger bro will drool when he sees your old pictures here. heheh. Sobrang he really adores you! Imagine, even his 5 yr. old kid is singing your songs & knows them by heart! Pag sumasabay kame ng daddy ko while he's singing, he would shush us. ayaw nya ng may kasabay. hahah. When he'd play your CD, he'd know which number to press. Lea, Thank you for the music! \m/ ..pun intended :)

Hi, Ms. Lea, Its me again, I didn't know if i submit my 2 replies earlier, one in nicoles baptism and one in your birthday pics. now im still here browsing your kiddie pic's, your sooo cute talaga, actually i've already see your other kiddie pic's in some magazines way back when i am still young also that time, I am your avid fan truly,madly, deeply talaga!, One my greatest dream is to see you in person and had a picture together, Actually i had so many dreams when i was young....1st of course having my own happy family Life...god gave me, 2nd is having my own house and a car ... god gave it to me...3rd is to see you in person and had a picture together... sana you would invite me in some of your gigs here in the Philippines, Take care always as well as your Family & God Bless

√ ßarßarra ∫ee said...

I was reminded of the same skirt that I used to have as a child when I saw this pic, only that it was color grey. Oh Miss Lea I dont know if this is the right place and time to tell you but your Kuya Mike (Michael Loren Lee) and I are getting married next month when he comes here in Manila. December 23. :) Hehehe ... one of these days I will also have the chance to meet you in person. Just thinkin abt it already makes me blush. He says youre very down to earth and theres just nothing to fear abt. I like ur kiddie pictures!!! Very cute and I can say you really had a VERY HAPPY childhood, you and Gerry. :) Take care always and God bless u. ( I also enjoyed Nic's video where she laughs alot...)

janette dolor said...

We are at same age and used to watch Love Lea at channel 4, our TV set then was still black and white and after school I'd would glue myself infront of TV screen to see you and hear the song "small voice"

LA YM said...

hi. Im Loren April Mendoza, a big fan of yours... im dreaming of meeting you someday. By the way, I studied at O.B. Montessori Greenhills too. If you can still remember the time when we had our Pinoy Pride. I was the one who sang the National Anthem and one of the singers in Pinoy Pride. Ive been searching the internet to contact you.. Im lucky, i found your multiply site... I really wish we could meet someday or just have a picture with an autograph with you... That's one of my dreams... :)

Thanks for being an inspiration to me. You're the best!

These photos brought some memories, too (I can, somehow, relate to). They prove how down-to-earth Lea really is inspite of her Greatness.

I'm glad a Lea Salonga was brought into this world !

(Imagine without her, the world is...lonely and unexciting.)

XXXX YYYY said...

Hi Lea! So happy I found ur site. Im a big fan and I must say that you're one of a kind. I just have a question to ask, if you don't mind, do you remember the song "If only"? I guess you were this young when you sang it. It's actually my favorite song, however, I couldn't find it anywhere. Hope you'll do a remake someday. Thank you for making our country proud! God bless your family! ;)

You truly are blessed and you sure know how to enjoy life to the fullest ...
