It was an unforgettable dinner that excited my palate and heart which at the end made me feel proud as a Filipino.

Event: Funny and romantic AlDub at #IYAMBlogcon, Imagine You And Me in theaters on July13!

Love wins all the time. I joined AlDub bloggers yesterday at Relish Restaurant discussing their latest movie under APT Entertainment and GMA Films "Imagine You And Me" with Direk Mike Tuviera, Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza. It was my first time with Maine and my second with Alden. I was curious how the two became a phenomenon until I've witnessed them candid and cute as a loveteam yesterday.
When I asked them and direk Mike Tuviera what their romantic fave movie was direk Mike mentioned my fave classic "When Harry Met Sally" and Maine said "Serendipity". In between the responses, out of sheer curiosity, Maine was hilarious trying to play wash-and-dry the cloth table cover with Alden which caught me laughing so hard. Now I have a better understanding why they are well-loved by fans- they both exude natural antics that are spontaneous and really funny. 
Though Maine admitted being pessimistic at her performances as an actress, she's completely pure at heart simply wanting to make people laugh and believe in love. Denying the claim that it will gross more than a billion in the box office, they all professed making the film to simply thank the viewers for their continued support. Let's all witness the magic of AlDub without the dub and believe in "Imagine You and Me" in theaters nationwide on July13! I hope we are all responsible Filipinos this time not sharing the full movie on Facebook. Support Filipino movies! Watch it in theaters on July 13!

Event: Dukot Press Conference at Wangfu Restaurant

Kidnapping cases most often get unresolved. Just like Ten17 Films and Star Cinema's newest suspense thriller Dukot. With award-winning director and producer Paul Soriano, Christopher De Leon, Bing Pimentel, Alex Medina, Bangs Garcia, Shaina Magdayao, Dino Pastrano and Enrique Gil at Wangfu Restaurant UP Town Center last Saturday, I joined the media discussing one of the most controversial issues in the country - kidnapping.
Direk Paul revealed the story was based on a real kidnapping whose identities were not disclosed because the perpetrators are still on the loose. Shaina will play the sister of Enrique who will sacrifice himself to be the victim and Ricky Davao will play the father to run after saving his son from the kidnappers. 
The trailer showed the exciting scenes which seem to focus on the father and his quest to look for ransom to save his son. Will he eventually pay the ransom? This and the scenes revealed by direk Paul on keeping our eyes confined in claustrophobic lenses truly excite me to watch Dukot set to show in cinemas on July 13! I am already excited to be amazed at the screenplay and the acting performance by Enrique Gil! For more information please visit

Exploring My Path To Financial Freedom by @avidalandph

It takes will and discipline to be finally financially free these days. I took the challenge of exploring my path to financial freedom from the personalized planner brought by friends from Avida Land Corporation last week. Reading the booklet that came with it was the first step and the ultimate decision to compute my expenses and assets came the toughest.
I used to keep the balance not on specific amount until I got this planner which also allowed me to attend to my financial obligations. From computing my assets against my liabilities let me plan my yearly goals and bucket lists. The keyword that enlightened me was "specific" which helped me compute measurable, attainable and time-bound goals for the year.
After using the calculator that came with the planner, I was able to plan in specifics my goal to where I should spend my next vacation. The planner also inspired me to explore other sound investments I didn't realize can better help me secure a better future.
I learned how important is every peso I spend and I learned to be more conscious of the small indulgences I take every single day. As they say, spend less than you earn and keep the ball on securing more investments. Breaking down all those expenses and miscellanous spendings helped me become more conscious and protected. Thank you Avida Land for teaching me how to be financially free and happy. Now that DepEd is going to include financial lietracy in the basic education curriculum, I am more confident to share my learning experiences through this Avida Land Planner.
