ENTERTAINMENT: Lin-Manuel Miranda Calls Lea Salonga ‘Dude Pare’ in Funny Twitter Convo

Hamilton composer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda just had the cutest and funniest Filipino conversation on Twitter with music genius Lea Salonga.

Apparently, Lin-Manuel sent Lea a tweet way back in 2014. On the old tweet, he expressed how much he loved Lea’s performance on a video while also saying that he didn’t know who the other guys were. His tweet included a link to the video.

Three years after, Lea replied to Lin-Manuel’s tweet. She said that the link isn’t working anymore.

Lin-Manuel funnily replied how old the tweet and video were.

Lea took the time to find the video and asked Lin-Manuel back.

Lin-Manuel said yes adding, “Ang bait mo!”

Fans like us were giggling over their cute convo. One even suggested teaching Lin-Manuel newer Filipino terms aside from “dude pare” like “besh, beshie, mams, and mamshie”.
