Event: Triathlon and struggles at #DreamscapePH's #BecauseYouLoveMe story conference

We aim to get to the finish line, the idea of success at the finish line may vary according to individual vested interests. I've been inspired attending DreamscapePH's announcement of its new teleserye starring Jake Cuenca, Yen Santos and Gerald Anderson. Directed by the respectable blockbuster filmmaker Dan Villegas, Because You Love Me will feature the story of Elma (Yen), Carlos (Jake) and Bata (Gerald) who will struggle to win in sports (Triathlon) and in love.
The story conference discussed how the characters will be in distinct goals to achieve success at the finish line. Direk Dan said he is excited about this teleserye and felt the pressure of the ratings following his renowned success at On The Wings of Love with direk Tonet Jadaone.
The lead will be under training to run, swim and bike set to shoot in Mindoro. Jake shared excitement of training in Thailand set the following week to prepare for the taping. Because You Love Me will be a story to feature amateur athletes as well and their real struggles. I'm already excited knowing Yen will be the lead with the King of Inspirational Teleserye Gerald Anderson. For more info, visit and follow @DreamscapePH on Twitter and Instagram for more details.

Event: Voter Responsibility and Awareness at #DZMMHandaKNB Ipanalo ang Pamilyang Pilipino Forum

Cellphones are not allowed on May 9. This Comelec rule and that fact that Board of Election Inspectors should not let voters bring home their receipts after voting may be one problem hard to contain. I joined fellow bloggers attending DZMM Teleradyo's #DZMMHandaKNB para Ipanalo ang Pamilyang Pilipino forum last Tuesday at the Dolphy Theater. With DZMM anchors Anthony Taberna, Gerry Baja, Karen Davila and Vic De Leon Lima, teachers, students NAMFREL, PPCRV and other interests groups gathered to discuss the elections preparations slated May9. 
Comelec Commissioner Chief Andy Bautista, Department of Energy, PPCRV, AFP, PNP and Namfrel shared to the participants the scenarios that may happen on the said date. Teachers represented by MPSTA and other orgs asked Chief Andy Bautista the security risks and compensation clamor of the BEIs while other participants asked the adequate supply of electricity 
Towards the end of the forum, mock election was demonstrated with Karen Davila insisting the possibility of some voters to not surrender the receipts. I totally agree with Karen since I've served as chairman of a precinct in Brgy Holy Spirit twice and the polling place I was assigned was a gymn with no space provided for vote secrecy. The forum explored possibilities that further widen awareness among voters. Thank you DZMM Teleradyo for the continued call for voter responsibility.

Event: #LizQuen to go on Destiny World Tour

You want to have a boyfriend like Tenten (Enrique Gil). With colds and sneezing, LizQuen (Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil) shared the good news to the media last Thursday at the set of Dolce Amore. The hit teleserye Dolce Amore will have a Destiny World Tour on June in different parts of the globe to pay gratitude to Kapamilyas worldwide. 
Tenten (Enrique) and Serena (Liza) confirmed that they are really in love. Liza shared the efforts of Enrique who kept helping her family. Enrique shared Liza's gift of an expensive fly board for his birthday. Although they both professed love in real life, Enrique pays respect to the family before admitting their relationship saying Liza still has to fulfill her duties first as a daughter. He wants to wait until Liza's family will give him blessing and he understands the dreams of Liza to provide a decent home and financial security before they both get into a commitment.
Liza was the dream girl everyone imagined, honest and sincere when asked how he feels about the fans' patronage of the show. I loved how Liza was as sweet and cute as Serena and Enrique who has a pure heart like Tenten. Towards the end of the interview, Enrique said that it may take a long time to admit if they are already in a relationship but he's willing to wait. Don't miss Dolce Amore weeknights on ABS-CBN after Ang Probinsyano.
