Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Marian Rivera nitong nakaraang
Martes, March 4, sa presscon ng Sof & Mmmmm Concentrated Fabric Conditioners. Ginanap ang naturang launch ni Marian bilang brand endorser ng naturang produkto ng Personal Collection sa Luxent Hotel sa Timog Avenue. Quezon City. At dahil gamit o produkto para sa isang maybahay ang bago niyang endorsement, tiyak na matsitsismis na naman na ikakasal na sila ng boyfriend na si Dingdong Dantes. Natatawa niyang pahayag, “Okey lang. Hindi naman din ako bata, so walang masama kung pinag-uusapan ang ganyan “E, wala pa naman akong nasasabi, so okey lang 'yan. "Ang importante may mga nagtitiwala sa iyo para maging endorser ka nila.” Sa rami na ng mga ineendorso niya, meron ba siyang produkto na ayaw niyang iendorso? Aniya, “Parang wala naman. Wala naman.” Mas lalong gumanda, mas lalong naging fresh, at maaliwalas ang mukha ni Marian ngayon.

Ginanap ang naturang launch ni Marian bilang brand endorser ng naturang produkto ng Personal Collection sa Luxent Hotel sa Timog Avenue. Quezon City.

At dahil gamit o produkto para sa isang maybahay ang bago niyang endorsement, tiyak na matsitsismis na naman na ikakasal na sila ng boyfriend na si Dingdong Dantes.

Natatawa niyang pahayag, “Okey lang. Hindi naman din ako bata, so walang masama kung pinag-uusapan ang ganyan

“E, wala pa naman akong nasasabi, so okey lang 'yan.

"Ang importante may mga nagtitiwala sa iyo para maging endorser ka nila.”

Sa rami na ng mga ineendorso niya, meron ba siyang produkto na ayaw niyang iendorso?

Aniya, “Parang wala naman. Wala naman.”

Mas lalong gumanda, mas lalong naging fresh, at maaliwalas ang mukha ni Marian ngayon.

Paliwanag niya, “Paano ko ba sasabihin? Siguro kapag masaya ka sa buhay mo—hindi ko sinasabing lahat ay nasa 'yo na, pero—nandun yung fulfillment sa sarili mo na masaya ka, [sa] showbiz man 'yan o sa pamilya mo, o sa pag-ibig mo, parang walang bahid ng anything, e.

“Kasi masaya ka, ibig sabihin kapag masaya ang isang tao, wala kang nakikitang ni katiting na negative para sa ibang tao.

“Kung meron man, hindi mo na mapapansin yun.

“At ang sarap kayang maging positive. Wala namang naitutulong ang pagiging negative, magkakakulubot ka lang, papangit ka lang, so bakit? Ang tao, maraming choice, e.

“Bakit hindi mo maging choice ang maging masaya at maging masaya para sa ibang tao?”

DINGDONG A SOFTIE?

Going back to her new endorsement na Sof & Mmmmm na tungkol sa pagiging “mabango at malambot,” tinanong namin si Marian kung ano ang pinakamalambot na parte ng katawan ni Dingdong.

“Ay! Ano ba’ng malambot? Wait lang…

“Ano bang malambot sa kanya? Siguro lips,” banggit niya.

Ano naman ang pinakamabangong parte ng katawan ni Dingdong?

Sagot ni Marian, “Kili-kili!”

Inaamoy niya ang kili-kili ni Dingdong?

“E, ganun kaming dalawa, e,” at tumawa si Marian.

Nag-aamuyan sila ng kili-kili.

“Hindi, yung lambingan lang, parang, ‘Hmmm!’

“Ganun lang,” saad niya.

THANKFUL FOR BLESSINGS.

Maganda ang mga nangyayari sa buhay ni Marian, sa personal at sa career; paano niya ide-describe ngayon ang sarili niya?

“Marami akong natutunan at masuwerte ako na may mga magulang ako na nandiyan palagi para sa akin, para i-guide, na palaging tinatatak sa utak ko na, ‘Anak, artista ka, may mga pagkakataon na very hot ka...

“'May mga pagkakataong nasa gitna, may mga pagkakataon talagang nawawala ang lahat.

“'Pero hindi ibig sabihin niyan e wala ka na. So, kailangan mong i-reinvent yung sarili mo, maging thankful ka kung anong meron ka.'

“So sa nangyari sa buhay ko, marami akong pinagdaanan, naging thankful ako naranasan ko lahat 'yan, at ngayon, 'eto nararanasan ko na naman. So ganun lang ang buhay.

“So, kailangan 'pag may pagkakataon na ibinibigay sa 'yo na makakapagpasaya dapat i-embrace mo talaga at maging thankful ka.

“Kung mawawala sa 'yo, ganun talaga ang buhay kailangan mong i-accept yun.”

Pinaghandaan ba niya ang mga bagay na ito?

“Hindi naman sa pinaghandaan, pero iyon ang masasabi ko na napakasuwerte ko na may mga magulang ako na palaging nandiyan para sabihan ako ng mga dapat kong gawin, at ipaalala sa akin kung gaano ako ka-blessed na tao para naranasan at mararanasan ko pa ang mga bagay na ito,” dagdag pa ni Marian.

Maayos ang kinapupuntahan ng mga kinikita ni Marian.

“Siguro dahil pinaghirapan ko, dahil siguro nandiyan din si Mama para i-guide ako at i-invest ko yung mga kinikita ko sa tama,” pagpapasalamat niya.

Saan niya in-invest?

“Basta po,” ang simpleng sagot ni Marian.

WILLING TO MEET ANTOINETTE.

Ano naman ang masasabi ni Marian tungkol sa bali-balitang gusto raw siya ma-meet ni Antoinette Taus?

Mabilis niyang sagot, “Why not? Why not?”


Dingdong Dantes and Antoinette Taus

Si Antoinette ay dating girlfriend ni Dingdong na matagal nang naka-base sa Amerika at ngayon ay nagbalik sa Pilipinas.

Malumanay niyang sagot, “Alam mo, 'yang mga ganyang bagay sa tao na, past is past, wala namang ginagawa sa iyo na masama ang isang tao, so walang dahilan para hindi mo pakitaan ng mabuti.

“Kung pakitaan ka man din ng masama ng kapwa mo e ipagdasal mo na lang siguro, may mga ganung pagkakataon na hindi lahat talaga mapi-please mo, e.”

ON LOUISE DELOS REYES.

Samantala, napag-usapan din si Louise delos Reyes na gumaganap ngayon bilang sirena sa Kambal Sirena.

Sa huling panayam kay Louise ay sinabi nito na nagbigay raw ng tips at advice sa kanya si Marian bilang naging sirena rin dati si Marian sa Dyesebel ng GMA.

Basahin: Marian Rivera, ano ang ibinigay na advice kay Louise de los Reyes?

Na yung iba ay ayaw nang i-reveal ni Louise.

“Hindi naman mga tips… Siguro yun, kung ayaw niyang i-reveal, okey lang. Pero isa lang ang sinasabi ko sa kanya, ‘Maging thankful ka kung anong binigay sa iyo ng GMA.

“Matuto ka na mahalin ang trabaho mo.’

“Kasi nagre-reflect 'yan, kung mahal mo ang trabaho mo, e. So, the mere fact na ibinigay sa kanya ang Kambal Sirena, ibig sabihin malaki ang tiwala sa kanya ng GMA.

“So i-grab niya ang opportunity na 'yan at huwag lalaki ang ulo niya,” lahad ng Kapuso Primetime Queen. -- Rommel Gonzales, PEP

ZAMBOANGA CITY -Power outage delayed the screening of Will Fredo’s “In Nomine Matris” during the recent Zamboanga International Film Festival, but the audience that filled the newly opened 150-seat cinematheque stayed on, reported lead actress Liza Diño.

The blackout, which affected the island of Mindanao, struck in the final 15 minutes of the movie, Diño related. She posted on her Facebook page: “Maraming salamat sa mainit na pagtanggap … Hindi n’yo kami iniwan.”

“In Nomine Matris” was among the featured films at the five-day (Feb. 26-March 2) 2014 Zamboanga IFF held at the cinematheque located on Veterans Avenue cor. Legionnaire Road. The establishment, the fifth to be financed by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), sits on a 400-sq m lot donated by the local government.

Testament

In his welcome speech, FDCP chair Briccio Santos said, “This distinguished film festival has gained a permanent home with the establishment of the cinematheque. It [is] a testament to FDCP’s commitment to keep alive the dynamic film scene among [regional] filmmakers and viewing audiences.”

The FDCP earlier built cinematheques in Baguio, Iloilo, Davao and Marawi.

Spanish director Pablo Berger’s silent fantasy movie, “Blancanieves” was the opening film. Other foreign titles screened at the cinematheque were: “El Secreto de Sus Ojos,” “Siete Mesas de Billar Frances,” “Copito de Nieve,” “Arrugas” and “O Apostolo.” A number of Filipino films coproduced by the FDCP were shown at the nearby Mindpro Citimall.

Zamboanga 1st District Representative Celso Lobregat, after seeing a historical movie set in Baler, Aurora, challenged indie directors in Zamboanga to make films about the province.

“Here in Zamboanga, the last Spanish general surrendered to Filipino fighters,” noted Lobregat, quoting from a book by local historian and professor Clem Bascar, “Mindanao: Where the Last Castilian Lion Roared.”

“Baler,” a Mark Meily film, is based on the Siege of Baler that lasted 337 days in 1898. It was among the featured movies at the Zamboanga IFF in 2013.

“Our local filmmakers are very active. We hope the creation of the cinematheque will [further] encourage them,” Lobregat told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

He admitted that the armed conflict in September between government forces and a faction of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) had caused delays in the construction of the cinematheque. “Work was stalled until November, but we’re almost finished,” Lobregat said. “[In] three more weeks, everything will be installed.” He later brought FDCP officials and guests to ground zero, only 100 meters from the cinematheque.

Therapeutic

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar stressed the importance of the cinematheque for a city still recovering from the crisis. “This establishment is very close to ground zero. Some of buildings around it were used [as rebel or military hideouts] at the height of the siege,” she recalled. “Watching movies could be therapeutic; it could help those affected to forget the pain, and release pent-up emotions.”

The mayor reported the recent FDCP-initiated film screening, through the Sine ng Masa (People’s Mobile Cinema) program, at the evacuation centers in Barangay Tetuan.

Salazar was confident that the cinematheque would soon be screening local filmmakers’ works. “Our young film students are inspired by the achievements of former students who are now internationally acclaimed. This market is ripe and thriving,” she stressed.

She cited Zamboanga-born director Sheron Dayoc, whose first full-length feature, “Halaw,” won top awards from film festivals in Germany, United States and Hong Kong.

The opening of the cinematheque coincided with the celebration of the 77th Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga, a week-long commemoration of Zamboanga’s proclamation as a chartered city. During the ceremony, a bronze statue of the late filmmaker Manuel Conde, sculpted by artist Jonas Roces, was unveiled. Conde’s son, actor-director Jun Urbano, was guest of honor.

“This cinematheque is rendered all the more distinguished with this statue,” said FDCP chief Santos. “We relive [Conde’s] legacy as contemporary Philippine cinema has emulated his shining example and found an enviable place on the world map.”

Urbano thanked the FDCP for honoring his father, immortalized as the lead character in the 1955 classic “Juan Tamad Goes to Congress.” He said: “I was just a little boy when I first came here with my mother. My father didn’t want to use fake props so we came here for authentic jewelry, costumes and kampilan (single-edged sword),” he recalled. “I’m truly grateful … I know my father is up there somewhere, not knowing how to thank you for this honor.”

FDCP executive director Teodoro Granados emceed the thee-hour rites, which featured performances from local traditional dancers. Also present were Michel Stanilas Villar, counselor for cooperation and cultural affairs of the embassy of France; Ignacio Perez Cambra, deputy head of mission of the embassy of Spain; Martin Macalintal, audio-visual attaché of the embassy of France; Will Fredo, “In Nomine Matris” director; Al Gatmaitan, actor; and Ayeen Pineda, “Si Pagong at Si Matsing” producer.

Zamboanga City faces water rationing in summer


Photo from the website of the Zamboanga City Water District


Zamboanga City - Already facing a power crisis, Zamboanga City now has to cope with an impending water shortage, prompting Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) officials to announce on Monday, March 3, a water rationing scheme that would take effect starting this week.

At present, most of barangays in the city have been experiencing low water pressure, which Engineer Al Alfonso, head of the ZCWD Technical Services Group, said could not yet be considered serious.

He did point out that parts of the Pasonanca River have gone dry because it had not been raining for weeks.

Based on the scheme devised by the local water district, barangays in Zamboanga City proper will be grouped into three areas: the East, West, and Central Districts.

The East District will be composed of Barangays Tumaga, Guiwan, Tetuan, Tugbungan, Talon Talon, Mampang, Rio Hondo, Santa Barbara, Kasanyangan, Santa Catalina, Veterans Avenue, Lunzuran, and Luyahan. These areas will have water supply from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the rationing period, which is expected to last all summer.

The West District will be composed of Barangays Cabatangan, San Roque, San Jose Gusu, Campo Islam, Calarian, Malagutay, Sinunuc, Napolcom Road, and Carmen Valley. These areas will have water from 7 a.m. to to 5 p.m. in the afternoon during the rationing period.

The Central District will be composed of Barangays Pasonanca, Sta. Maria, Canelar, Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3, Zone 4, Baliwasan, San Jose, Cawa Cawa, Sto. Niño, and Camino Nuevo. These areas will have water all day but with very low pressure.

If the water shortage worsens, the scheme will be revised so that even the Central District will have water only at certain times. - Liza Jocson
