CJ Cansino and Francis Lopez returned to Subic, Friday, to make sure all is well in the carnival that went viral because of them.

In Cansino’s vlog of the UP Fighting Maroons’ Subic outing last December 16, Lopez was seen having fun with a masked staff member of the horror ride and their interaction became a hot topic.

Two weeks later, the two met with the 21-year-old carnival worker, who requested to remain anonymous, to clear the air.

“There is no excuse for what we did. We try to make something right out of this. This is a life lesson for me,” said Lopez.

In turn, the staff member expressed his appreciation for the State U players’ effort to reach out in the middle of the holidays.

“No hard feelings na po,” he said in the meeting where Subic Fiesta Carnival owner Gloria Quiroz as well as Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Office of the Deputy Administrator for Corporate Affairs officer-in-charge Armie Llamas and her team were also present.

For her part, Quiroz stated that the UP Fighting Maroons were respectful guests who saw to it to chat and take photos with Subic Fiesta Carnival employees and patrons during their visit.

“Natuwa kami sa kanila kasi tumagal pa nga sila rito nun. Welcoming sila sa fans and sa staff namin. Ngayon, na-appreciate naming bumalik sila rito,” she said.

Also in the spirit of the holiday season, Lopez gifted the carnival worker with a signed jersey and UP Fighting Maroons team shirt.
