Kwento Ni Toto was lucky to be invited in Bea Binene's Debut Album launched.  This event was covered by Angelyn Demo, one of our correspondent, who was enthusiastic enough to tell her story about this launch.  Here's her cover story.

Since the Kwento Ni Toto guy wasn't around the Metro during this launched I was tasked to cover this story.  No offence but I barely know Bea Binene and I first saw her in person during one of Bum's Fashion Show that's why I got curious as well when this task was given to me.  At least this time I would be able to know her much better.
