Angel Jacob and Cassie Labayen at the Negros Trade Fair

It is hard to actually say that Angel Jacob is a visitor to the Negros Trade Fair.  By and large, Angel is a Negrense - not necessarily by birth but by having assimilated the very essence of being Negrense when she starred as lead actress in Jay Abello's 2008 indie film "Namets".  Her alter ego, the movie's Cassie Labayen is excellently portrayed that it's so hard to actually think that Angel was not once a typical daughter descending from a hacendero family, schooled in St. Scholastica's Academy Bacolod and speaking with that distinct "Ilongglish" diction.

Next time you bump into Angel at the Negros Trade Fair, try calling her by the name "Cassie".  If that doesn't work, "Cassie Labayen" will surely make her head turn.
