Review: Unexpected extrajudicial feelings at Viva Films' Camp Sawi, now showing

I did not expect crying hard over a simple scene of Bela Padilla. Maybe it's that extrajudicial feelings that had been repressed for so long believing I have completely moved on from a heartbreak. I joined fellow bloggers at the premiere of Viva Films' latest romantic comedy Camp Sawi starting Andi Eigenmann, Kim Molina, Arci Munoz, Bela Padilla, Yassi Pressman and Sam Milby. Directed by Irene Emma Villaflor with direk Bb.Joyce Bernal as creative consultant, Camp Sawi movie led me to focus not on the camp or the chase of the camp master Sam Milby but the stories of the ladies who booked to move in in order to move on.
Kim Molina's dark character may seem scary from her shady and scary experience but the gloom turned to laughter when a catfight was about to unfold between Bela and Arci's characters. I loved how each scene was true to every woman's struggle to cope during heartbreak and true to its humor having all these ladies with their baggages in one camp. I cried laughing at Arci and Bela being drunk and pinning Sam Milby to be in the same bed but I also cried of sadness remembering my own pain while seeing Bela Padilla's tears running from her eyes, effortlessly. It must've been the same pain or that I have completely immersed myself on her character having no closure with Dennis Trillo. Camp Sawi pinched every scar I had left from my own closet and I must say this is one movie worth watching more than once. In the end, I wanted to sing Regine's Dadalhin performed well by Kim Molina after the movie. Don't miss Camp Sawi with Yassi, Arci, Kim, Bela, Andi and Sam now showing in cinemas nationwide.

One of today’s most in-demand celebrities, Matteo Guidicelli, is featured in the latest television commercial of Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI) And get this: there’s not just one, but two Matteos going up against each other. The TVC shows two Matteos with strikingly opposite tactics: one tries to impress by bragging his material possessions, including a new phone and a credit card, while the other woos her by promising a brighter future together with the help of the Sun Life Prosperity Card.    
The Sun Life Prosperity Card is an investment card worth P5,000 which may be invested in any of the peso-denominated mutual funds managed by SLAMCI under its Sun Life Prosperity Funds. The first of its kind in the market, it has revolutionized mutual funds investing in the country. “We wanted SLAMCI’s new TVC to encourage the audience to begin their investing journey with the Sun Life Prosperity Card because it’s an easy and convenient way to start building one’s brighter future,” explained SLAMCI president Valerie Pama. “By investing in mutual funds, one can make his money work harder for him, as against simply leaving all of it in the bank.”
To illustrate this point, Pama shared that a 91-day time deposit in a bank 10 years ago would have given 28% return; but for the same period, the Sun Life Prosperity Bond Fund grew by 66%, while the money invested in the Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund would have earned 155%. Meanwhile, an investment in the Sun Life Prosperity Philippine Equity Fund gained 221%. “This is exactly why we want Filipinos, especially the youth, to start investing some of their money in mutual funds,” Pama said. “Instead of using up all of one’s money on trendy items that will soon be replaced by a new fad, why not invest it for the long term and watch it grow? The two Matteos in our TVC certainly highlighted that message in fun yet clear manner.” For his part, Matteo said he had fun portraying two different personas. “It’s the first time I did such a project, and I definitely enjoyed playing both roles,” he said. “But what’s important is that we were able to bring home the message. It’s fun to have nice material things and be on YOLO mode, but what will happen to you if all your money runs out and you have nothing saved for the long-term?” And if there’s one thing that Matteo knows, it’s that some things are definitely worth the wait. “Whether I’m doing sports or working on a showbiz project, I know that I need to be patient before I could see the results. Training for a competition takes time, and so does shooting a movie or recording an album. It’s the same thing when you invest your money – you have to grow it long-term before you can enjoy the benefits,” he explained. “You may have to wait a bit, but it’s always, always worth it!”Catch SLAMCI’s latest TVC featuring Matteo Guidicelli on cable TV.

Event: Aga Muhlach returns as 4th judge of Pinoy Boyband Superstar #welcomehomeaga

Aga seemed to have not aged at all at 46. The ultimate hearthrob shared his excitement as the 4th judge of ABS-CBN's newest reality show Pinoy Boyband Superstar last night at 9501 Restaurant.
Aga had no idea that fans were waiting for his return as Kapamilya after his last film in Star Cinema with Angel Locsin(In The Name Of Love). It took him awhile before agreeing to join the Pinoy Boyband Superstar joining Vice Ganda, Sandara Park and Yeng Constantino slated to start this September.
I have loved Aga since I was young following his career until he moved to TV5 years ago. When I had a chance to ask what he thought was the advantage of aspiring actors today compared to how he started, he mentioned the value of interacting with fans on social media which his own kids are beginning to explore. I'm already excited if Vice will be able to convince him to dance Pak Ganern or Sandara giving him tons of laughter at Pinoy Boyband Superstar.
