Ogie Alcasid Turns 45 On August 27 But Celebrates It With Regine And Son In Singapore In September

OGIE ALCASID is celebrating his 45th birthday on August 27 but he won’t have a big party. Instead, he’s taking wife Regine and their son Nate to Singapore in September to meet ex-wife Michelle and husband Mark Murrow, plus Ogie and Michelle’s two daughters, Leila and Sarah.

“I can’t leave on my birthday mismo as I have a new movie to promote,” he says. “So September na lang in time for the F1 Race there. Ready na kami, may passport na si Nate for his first trip abroad. I feel I have a lot to celebrate now that I’m in my 40s kaysa noong 30s ako. Noon kasi, magulo. Those were my dark years. Thank God nalampasan ko. Michelle and I are now good friends. Happy kami ni Regine with Nate. I have peace of mind, I can now sleep well at night. ‘Daddy Dearest’, ‘Pare & Pare’, ‘Party Pilipinas’ are all rating well. I can’t complain.”

He also just opened a new resto, Ryu Ramen & Curry on Morato Ave., in front of Alfredo’s. His associates are La Sallite colleagues Neil Castillo, Edwin Dazo, BJ Vergel de Dios and Joseph Juico, who all love to eat Japanese food. “Ako, si Michelle ang nag-orient sa’kin sa ramen because she studied in Japan for several years,” he adds.

We ordered curry dishes with ramen when we were there and the food is really good, the prices very reasonable. You should try it. But it’s more like a hole in the wall good for only 50 people. “Nagulat kami. Grabeng lakas. One time, nagsara kami agad kasi naubusan na ng food. We intend to extend it soon.”
