IN/SIGHT: Ang Nawawala, which stars Dominic Roco in the offbeat role of the non-speaking Gibson Bonifacio (he’s not deaf or mute, and no spoiler here, you will find out), is an extraordinary film! And like anything amazing, it has a wacky story with an innovative treatment. So when you watch Ang Nawawala featuring Dawn Zulueta as directed by Marie Jemora, which is now screening, view it if you want to be convinced that local movies are not all fluff and icing. But be ready to be thrown off the edge of your seat (figuratively) and be jolted (pleasantly). This is Dominic’s best performance to date, which Cinemalaya predictably failed to recognize for its own comfort.
When it comes to stature and success, Sarah Geronimo and Toni Gongaza are equals. A clash of sorts should be unavoidable, but instead they complement. They have grown bigger in the eyes of people by keeping their feet on the ground despite all the triumphs.
This is because they share the same entertainment experiences. When they were starting out, Sarah lacked confidence about her skin and body, while Toni considered herself too thin. But they did not give up pursuing their entertainment ambitions. Instead, they decided to take positive action. Aside from honing their talents continuously and making the right choices in their respective careers, they found the beauty solutions from only the best: The products and services of Belo Medical Group and Belo Essentials.
This paid off. Both of them were recently asked by the industry leaders to do ambassador work together.
They just finished shooting a commercial for the Belo Essentials line. As expected, either star only had good words for the other. Sarah says, “Working with Toni is such a fun and great experience. I’ve always been her fan, but witnessing her professionalism and positive attitude during our TVC shoot made me admire her more.”
Toni also speaks highly of the experience. “I’ve always admired Sarah not only because of her exceptional talent, but also because of how beautiful she is inside out. I had a great time shooting our last scene together. Everyone was laughing because we were emoting so much!”
“Belo Essentials products are very effective. I’ve proven that myself as I have been using these for many years now,” Sarah adds. “It’s very important that you believe in the product that you endorse.”
Toni and Sarah agree, raving about the way Dr. Vicki Belo and her staff always makes all of their clients feel at home whenever they drop by their clinics. “She makes us feel like we are important and that we are family.”
Each of them have their favorite Belo Essentials products that every female must have. Sarah’s is the Smoothening Whitening Body Bar with exfoliating microbeads and the Pore Minimizing Face Wash. She swears they are so effective, giving her confidence to do her entertainment work as required. She shares, “Belo Essentials was the first beauty product that believed in me. Their trust and support made me feel better about myself.”
Toni, on the other hand, praises Belo’s body treatment. “I love their body scrub, facial and almost everything that the clinic offers to make me feel beautiful. Going to Belo is the best decision I’ve made for my skin.”
Her favorite beauty product is the Belo Essentials Whitening Lotion. She says this has made her complexion lighter and her skin smoother. The pink variant now has SPF 30, too!
That perfect skin,
A female ex-editor of a lifestyle magazine said that a beautiful woman has two things going for her: Blemish-free skin and slim arms. As females have the best say about their own issues, I believed it as truth. Matching this is the mindset that females are the best beauty gurus although gay men have a tendency to claim this distinction.
This is how I came to consider Dr. Vicki Belo as the authority and last word on beauty solutions. On Sept. 16 in Salamat, Dok (Channel 2, 7:30 a.m. with simulcast on ANC) as hosted by Bernadette Sembrano, she’s going to talk about perfect skin and slimmer arms, which can’t be had, she says, just by using soap and astringent, and in the latter’s case, with diet and exercise.
She will also focus on how a Power Peel skin treatment program not only wipes out pimples, blackheads and whiteheads, but also bust age spots, fine lines and flaking skin by getting rid of dead and dull skin. Glutathione-IV injection, on the other hand, results in lighter, more even complexion, and an improved immune response.
Smart Lipo, the state-of-the-art liposuction technique from Italy, can dissolve or liquefy unwanted body fat in the whole circumference of the arms resulting to slimmer look. This procedure also stimulates contraction of the overlying skin for better tightening, sculpting in a painless, safe and effective way.
Women know what they want and how they want them!
UPDATE: Turning Chinese
The trip to Hong Kong by the Artista Academy scholars turned out to be a real holiday for two reasons: only they have had the chance to go abroad copared to participants of the current crop of star searches, and there was no Kick-out Night last Monday! Benjo must have breathed easier at Victoria’s Peak Gallery, the renowned tourist spot’s viewing deck, which was their first outing. He got the lowest grades in last week’s taped exam. This is the thing with Artista Academy. A scholar will always be at the bottom and top. There may be a tie, which the critics may choose to break.
From footages and photos of the Hong Kong trip, it looks like there are already pairings among the scholars, friendly or romantic. Although there is an official rule about male-female bonding, that can’t be helped among adrenalin-driven young people, who are cooped up most of the time. There are already buddies, walking mates, seatmates or even tell-tale cuddling mates. Before the contest is over, pairings will be clear even if they have to eliminate each other in order to win. Law of Demand and Supply operates here like the known savvy of Hong Kong merchants.
On the Artista Academy fan side of things, Buzzstation received this e-mail from Akinatics showing that fans of the Artista Academy scholars Akihiro Blanco and Vin Abrenica have started fighting among themselves. For information purposes, I’m posting the communication in part, unedited and without comment: “Mali naman po yata ito. Mas mukhang artista po si Akihiro kaysa kay Vin. Kahit Japanese, ang kind ng face niya. Ang laki-laki ng ilong at malaki ang mata ni Vin. Ang laki-laki pa ng muscles, gurang na tuloy and dating niya. Talaga namang mas guwapo si Aljur (Abrenica) pero siyempre mas good-looking si Aki namin!” (Photo by Candice Lim-Venturanza)
