Event: Celebrate love this January25 with Regal Films' Foolish Love

Here's to being foolish in love. Regal Films presents a pre-Valentine and Chinese New Year movie "Foolish Love" starring the phenomenal PBB loveteam ToMiho (Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida, Angeline Quinto and Jake Cuenca directed by Joel Lamangan. I joined fellow bloggers interviewing the cast with direk Joel last Thursday at 38 Valencia Events Place.
When asked which particular moment was unforgettable, Tommy said it was the confrontation scene and Jake mentioned also another confrontation scene. The real love of ToMiho now getting in reel as they launch their first movie on the big screen showed excitement and realized how difficult it was to act compared to Angeline and Jake. 
What was so adorable was Angeline and Jake showing their respect to each other just like ToMiho loveteam constantly locking their pinky fingers fidgeting while responding to questions. Foolish Love movie will surely be one fun movie to start the year. I'm already excited as direk Joel mentioned that the movie's beauty is its poetry so let us all watch it on January 25 in cinemas nationwide. For more information please visit

Event: Star Cinema celebrates Chinese New Year with Kung Fu Yoga featuring Jackie Chan and EXO's Zhang Yixing

Who does not love Jackie Chan? I tried to look for him everywhere in HongKong last year hoping I'd have the chance to see him personally on my birthday because I am a real big fan. On Feb1 and simultaneously across the globe, Jackie Chan's new movie Kung Fu Yoga will be shown in cinemas. Kung Fu Yoga stars the legendary Jackie Chan with a mix of popular celebrities from Korea, China and India; Amyra Dastur, Disha Patani, Aarif Rahman, Sonu Sood and EXO's Zhang Yi Xing (aka Lay) while we are all celebrating the Chinese New Year. This multilingual movie will be Star Cinema's first foreign film distribution for 2017. It would definitely be interesting to witness how the language barriers can play a significant role narrating the adventure of Jack in China and Tibet. Let us all watch Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga on February 1 in cinemas nationwide.

Event: Happy New Year with Happy New #FigaroExecutiveLunch Sets at Php249 with lemonade and salted caramel custard

It's time for new beginnings and let's start 2017 right by eating right. It was a delightful lunch joining fellow bloggers sampling Figaro's new Executive Lunch Sets yesterday. Starting January 19 at Figaro branches: Greenbelt, Glorietta, Liberty, DBP, Tomas Morato, Shangri-La, Ace Plaza, High Street, Brickroad, Promenade, Shell Residences, Sct. Magbanua, Taipan Place ,#figaroexecutivelunch sets will make you look forward to lunch everyday. Just the thought of grilled pork liempo already excited my palate.
Grilled Pork Belly with Coleslaw and Java Rice, Salisbury Meatballs with Peas and Carrots and Jasmine Rice, Chicken Gourmet Embutido with Cucumber, Lettuce, Boiled Egg and Tomato and Jasmine Rice and Lemon Butter Fish with Peas and Carrots and Jasmine Rice all served with Lemonade and Salted Caramel Custard at Php249. 
I had a nibble of each and checked which among the four Figaro Executive Lunch Sets would most likely urge me to get a second helping. A bite of that grilled pork belly already reminded me of feasts on New Year's. It's that hickory sauce I believe and that crunchy sweet and tangy coleslaw that made it a happy meal.
That Salisbury Meatballs were also unforgettable leaving you that hint of spice you need to kick the day. I loved how it smelled while I bite with tasty gravy and mushrooms on rice. Certainly the top choice of most Pinoy would be that Chicken Gourmet Embutido because it was so flavorful. It reminded me of fiestas I love attending and the relatives homecooking. 
Finally, those planning to go for Balik Alindog Program prepping for beach bod will definitely enjoy Figaro's Lemon Butter Fish. It's sweet, sour and tasty perfect with those pecks of capers that completed the experience. This light meal I usually prepare for my own baon will now be available at Figaro. The piece de resistance was that Salted Caramel Custard because it's not too sweet and it's really delicious. Which is best-tasting? Actually, they're all so delicious but I want to lose weight so I'll go for the fish or the chicken again. Ms.Joan Cortez, Figaro's Marketing Head said the brand will soon accommodate deliveries. Figaro, the first Filipino coffee company is definitely changing at tuned with today's demand of millenials. I love their Matcha Coffee and their new Flat White! Figaro is one happy place to visit this year! For more information, please visit and follow @figarocoffee on Instagram and @figarocoffeehq on Twitter for more promos and updates.

Event: #MrUltimatePiolo turns 40 this month #HappyBirthdayPioloPascual

The ultimate hearthrob will turn 40 this month and he looks 20. Mr. Piolo Pascual joined us last night celebrating his birthday at StarMagic Philippines first salvo celebrating its 25th anniversary at 9501 Restaurant in ABS-CBN. Papa P who was in disbelief being called one by cameramen shared to us that he had completely embraced his aging and is open to being a consultant of the network following the peak of his career as the ultimate leading man of the Philippine entertainment industry.
Being the perfect man for many of us, Papa P shared his realization of seeing more potentials and opportunities for 2017 starting with a movie entitled "Once In A Lifetime" opposite Yen Santos shot in several locations under Regal Films, Spring Films and Star Cinema. Having so many projects up on his sleeves, Papa P maintains his healthy lifestyle starting always with a prayer and constant exercise to stay fit. I love how he still wants to be a pastor sharing his life verse Hebrews 12:1 remembering his birthday (Jan.12). 
When asked which moments he felt "kilig" because many of us adore him so much not just because of his looks but his personality, Papa P said in particular those moments he looks at his son and his achievements as one of the young hearthrobs of this generation. I can completely relate to his fondest memories when his son Inigo looks at him with a smile like how my son looks at me and kisses me before I leave for work sometimes. Papa P shared his renewed faith in his endorsements realizing that he has to live up to the title "brand ambassador" of brands like SunLife so he studies each detail to better inspire prospective clients and customers of the brand. Get to know more of Papa P and his complete bio featured in Star Studio Magazine for the month of January 2017. It was an unforgettable first event of the year with inspiring Piolo Pascual. Happy birthday Papa P! We love you so much.

#ThankYou Lord for #ThankYous #AirAsiaPH

It is the most powerful expression sure to bring smile to anyone you give it to. Terimah Kasih, Kop Kuhn Kah, Arigato, Merci, Grazie, Salamat Po are just some of the few that got me so many places in a breeze because believe it or not, it was always what all wanted to hear better than I Love You. This #AirAsiaPH #ThankYou video reminded me of my daily gratitude to every person helping me as a person with disability each day. From guiding me to get off the jeepney when I go to the mall to the wonderful strangers who open doors for me. I have always been grateful to big hearts that lurks in every being I meet each day. #ThankYou Lord for #ThankYou that got me to places I've never been all my life this year.
The epiphany of gratitude visited me again this week with these wonderful angels. 16 years ago I met these handsome and intelligent boys attending my campus journalism class. Bam was the most intelligent among the flock of rugrats and Carmela was the bullied gay who'd always skip classes just to stay in my journalism room to erase his makeup. While Bam was always catching up on my instructions, Carmela was always afraid that his retired army father would find out his sexuality. Amidst their struggles (one trying to win in all competitions and the other one trying to win his father's heart), we had always goofed and teased each other in and out of school.
After the two graduated high school, we managed to meet, goofed and teased each other like we never parted. I was in every single significant moment of their lives like they were in mine. The two graduated Mass Communications and they both started working. Bam started becoming so popular as a reporter of GMA News and Current Affairs and I've started living next to Carmela who was finally accepted by his father being gay working in a call center. I've been constantly worrying about their safety and more importantly their well-being. We met every chance we get and did the same catching up on each others' lives.
After I've managed to do MMFF marathon with Carmela last week, Bam called me the other day asking to go with him shopping. While trying on shirts, in between the goofing and teasing, I surprised him saying Thank You. He has no idea how much he inspired me to keep teaching and loving more kids after I met him and Carmela. Before this year ends, I am most grateful for the opportunity to thank you- Bam Alegre and Carmela Salgado Ocampo for being most important people in my life. Thank you Carmela for teaching me to believe in myself. Because you taught me makeup, I never got to school with my uniform inside out again. Thank you Carmela for never forgetting me as your Nanay. Thank you Bam for teaching me to explore the world alone. You taught me to be brave so I did solo travel to Krabi in 2014, HK and SG this year. Imagine a PWD doing solo travel? I did it all in a breeze by simply saying #ThankYou to every person I met. The expression brought me places a PWD like me wouldn't dare explore. Bam, even if you said that there is no Baboy in Babuyan Island, I still want to go there and all the other places you've been despite my disability. Because of your constant motivation and the budget airfare rates like that of #AirAsiaPH, I am more confident to continue exploring the world. #ThankYou #AirAsiaPH for the gift of gratitude and the bigger chances to get to dream destinations. Aside from God, my family, my friends and other once-my-students-who-never-failed-to-pay-gratitude, I am thanking you Bam and Carmela for the moments and the time you've given me this year. May all your wishes come true in 2017. I love you!
