Unanimously graded A by the CEB (Cinema Evaluation Board) and Rated PG by the MTRCB.
This is what the movie “Meet Me in St. Gallen” featuring Bela Padilla and Carlo Aquino got.
Privileged to watch before it hit the cinemas, we were awed with how direk Irene Villamor presented the “lovestory” of the characters Celeste and Jesse.
Chance meeting. In a coffee shop. Talks. A kiss. No more connections. Years after. Same coffee shop. The small talk have become deeper. And no one wanted to give in to the feelings. But they ended up in bed. With the one promise that they will meet in St. Gallen. But the years have given and showed them the many changes and intricacies of life.
Were there regrets? Nothing was promised. Wrong time. Right places. Different situations.
We were screaming for Carlo. Of how he maintained his good craft after all the years. A winner! Which Bela complemented.
Yes, I would recommend that you see it. Not just because it was shot in Switzerland. But see yourselves in their situations. Of wanting to be. Of being scared. And brave. Of defying the odds. Of living life. Of wanting love. Of losing. And finding.
It wouldn’t merit a unanimous A grade for nothing!
Fall in love with Celeste and Jesse. And see that you are them in real life.
No pressure from the producers (Piolo Pascual in particular) of Spring and Viva Films to topple “Kita Kita.”
It is a feel good movie because of realizations we cannot even ask ourselves.
Go! See the movie!
A “clique” is a small group of people, with shared interests or other features in common, who spend time together and do not readily allow others to join them.
But in the case of the newly formed group Clique V, the latter meaning ain’t true as there are actually 7 members in the group.
There is Karl, the campus heartthrob, Marco, the hunk, Sean, the kilabot ng dance floor, Josh is the cutie bae, Clay is the soul balladeer, Tim is the teen crush and Rocky the boy-next-door.
3:16 Events and Talent Management Company formed the group in August 2017. From that time, they underwent a series of singing, dancing and acting workshops. From Sweet Plantado-Tiongson of the Company, Mia Pangyarihan of the Sex Bomb, Donald Balbuena, PETA and direk Emman dela Cruz.
It was last December when they shared their Christmas single “Tuwing Pasko” in their grand media launch.
And this month, their self-titled album where 6 original songs are featured was launched. With the carrier single “Pwede Ba, Teka Muna” with “Ako Na Lang Sana,” “Bakit Hindi,” “Magmula Ngayon,” “Mabuti na Lang” and “Sana Naman.”
They have been awarded as Outstanding Boy Band in the 37th year ender top consuners choice awards last December 16, 2017.
The seven guys only see one lady as the best–Liza Soberano!
Still early to tell who will shine from the seven exuding different personas.
But from the events we’ve seen them perform, a lot of shrieks and screaming are heard already!
For the now, they know that what would make them click is a good attitude towards their work and peers.
Host and actor cum businessman Ahwel Paz has all the reasons to feel giddy these days!
Because of a feature done for him by Ricky Lo, no less than Ms. Charo Santos-Concio picked his life story to be featured on Saturday’s (February 10, 2018) “MMK” (Maalaala Mo Kaya) episode.
Those close to him already know the struggles in life that Ahwel went through since the age of 5. Selling delicacies on the streets of Quiapo and Ermita and serving in a carinderia in Quinta Market.
That augmented his parents’ wish for him and his siblings to have a good education.
It was a speaking engagement in Norway that a scholarship was granted to him by the Ministry of Denmark.
Now, we see an Ahwel as a broadcaster in DZMM, hosting various shows in and out-of-the-country. And filling the stomachs of his growing clienteles in his Dong Juan Restaurant. And giving back by means of medical missions for the media everytime he celebrates his birthday.
Topel Lee directs Francis Maguindayao who essays Ahwel’s life.
