Ruffa Gutierrez Admits Meeting Derek Ramsay In London

RUFFA GUTIERREZ came home from Europe last Wednesday ready to report on the set of “Enchanted Garden”, only to be informed that taping was packed up because both their sets were affected by the monsoon rains. One set is in Bataan and the other one is in Cainta, both are flood prone areas. They cannot go to the house they’re using in Bataan as the roads were flooded. The set constructed in a studio in Cainta was destroyed as the flood went up to four feet inside the studio.

“Enchanted Garden” is very expensive to do as production designer Egay LIttaua has to build a special set as the fantasy world of Eden. Now that it’s ruined, they have to spend for it all over again. The costumes of the various Diwanis or fairies are designed and made by Regine Tolentino and Bill Gustilo. “They’re also very expensive,” says supervising producer Mhau Herrera. “Kaya buti na lang hindi nasira yung costumes.”

About Ruffa, she admits she met Derek Ramsay in London. “But we only met once at dinner and we were with common friends,” she says. “We went there to work. I helped launch a clothing line while he’s covering the Olympics. And my two daughters were with me.”
