Hands slapping, jeers and cheers, and just out of this world laughter were how I spent lunch with five members of Gigger Boys, the newest teen group of Star Magic, the talent pool of ABS-CBN.

Nothing could have been more true than the adage that boys will be boys, celebrities or not, Atenistas or La Sallites.

To begin with, they are all boys composed of AJ Perez, Enchong Dee, Robi Domingo, Chris Gutierrez and Arron Villaflor.

It all started with discussions as to why Ateneo keeps on beating La Salle at the UAAP, only to realize that the blue bloods were out-numbered by the green blooded (?) - no pun intended - by 3 is to 1.

Enchong, AJ and Chris are all from La Salle while it is only Robi who comes from Ateneo.

"Go to your corner, Robi," AJ said jeering at Robi Domingo. "He's the only one out of place in our group, he even dances in the corner lang."

Good natured Robi merely shakes his head saying, "We will keep on winning."

It was also over lunch that the group's name was revealed to be actually an abbreviation for "God is Great, Gets Everybody Rocking."

"First we are boys, and we always have gigs," AJ said.
