“A YELLOW DREAM”

(dream-like words and thoughts of robert manuguid silverio)

 

I DREAMED A DREAM…

A YELLOW DREAM…

WITH EYES BLAZING LIKE FIRE…

A YOUNG MAN SLEEPING,

A CREATURE AWAKENING…

FEATHERS ON HIS EYES,

PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD

AND KNOWLEDGE LEFT UNKNOWN-

IN A HIDDEN PLACE…

OF YELLOW THOUGHTS

LIKE THE SUN

AND BURSTING WITH ENERGY…

FULL OF HOPES

AND VISIONS, TOO.

 

YES,

IT WAS A YELLOW DREAM.

AND THE ONE LEFT…

WAS 

“YELLOW”.

 

(as the words were written, in robert manuguid silverio’s “book of love”, september 17, 2014).*

Very entertaining, informative at educational ang radio program ni Mommy Renee Garcia entitled “YouthTalk”, na napakikinggan sa DZRB Radyo Ng Bayan mula Lunes hanggang Biyernes, sa ganap na alas-kuwatro ng hapon.

Just two days ago nga, nag-live guesting doon si Vince Tanada, ang head and founder ng Philippine Stagers Foundation, kasama ang apat niyang nag-guguwapuhang Stagers na sina Patrick Libao, JV Cruz, Johnrey Rivas at Thomas Pineda.

Biglaan lang ang radio guesting na ‘yun, at talagang hindi lang maka-hindi si Papa Vince sa blogger-friend niyang si SSSIP (ako po*. Hihihi.) na hinatak siya, kasama si Mommy Renee papuntang radio booth ng programa. Buti na lang at game na game si Papa Vince at walang anumang kaartehan sa katawan- maski na ang apat na Stagers na kasama niya. Ang resulta: isang napakagandang episode airing ng “YouthTalk” ang nangyari at napakinggan ng mga radio listeners from Batanes island to Jolo (yes, mayroon pong satellite sa mga lugar na ‘yan ang DZRB).

Natuwa to the max, naaliw at super na na-impress si Mommy Renee sa galing magsisagot nina Vince sa mga questions niya sa mga ito on air, assisted by his very amiable female assistant (sorry we forgot her name. Bawi kami sa kanya next time. Hihihi….) Kaya naman, talagang inendorso ni Mommy Renee live on air na tangkilikin ng mga estudyante’t kabataan ang mga stageplays ng Philippine Stagers Foundation.

Sayang lang nga, wala that day ang mga OJT-students ni Mommy Renee na siyang kadalasang nagsisipagtanong sa mga guests niya. No classes kasi that day kaya wala ang mga ito sa kanyang programa.

Pawang mga kabataan at estudyante kasi ang listeners ng programa ni Mommy Renee, kaya naman maski nag-celebrate na siya ng kanyang 5oth year birthday kamakailan lang, looking so youthful pa rin si Mommy Renee, kasi pawang mga bagets na estudyante ang nakakasalamuha niya everyday sa kanyang radio program.

Go, go, go, Mommy Renee, Vince Tanada and the Philippine Stagers Foundation!

Very smooth ang naging taping kamakailan lamang nina Vince Tanada, kasama ang kanyang dalawang Stagers na sina JV Cruz at Patrick Adrian Libao.

Nagkaroon ng one-on-one interview si Vince (na napaka-intelehente habang nagsasalita sa harap ng kamera), ang founder and Artistic Director ng Philippine Stagers Foundation kay Ms. Carla Lizardo, na siya namang host ng programang “Personage”. Tinalakay nila ang pagiging isang artistikong nilalang ni Vince at kung paano niya napagbubuti ang pangangasiwa sa isang theater group na pinamumunuan niya.

Sina JV Cruz at Patrick Libao naman, napakaganda ng kemistri habang sabay din silang kinapanayam ni Ms. Lizardo. At ease na ease ang dalawa at very charming habang iniinterbyu. Kaya naman tuwang-tuwa sa kanila si Ms. Lizardo.

Kasabay na nag-taping nina Vince ang dalawang male winners ng isang male personality contest na sina Mariano Flormata, Jr. (a.k.a. Neil perez)- ang present Mister International Philippines at si
Joseph Doruelo – ang present Mister Global Philippines.

a new action-suspense movie for lance raymundo

lance: busy as a bee

lance: busy as a bee

 

Lance Raymundo is going to be very busy these coming days. He’ll soon be starting shooting a new indie film entitled Vengeance Is Mine.

“It’s an action-suspense film”, Lance told the good news to a blogger-friend. “I can’t tell much about the film, though. But all I can say is, I play the male lead and the good guy in this film. It’s going to be directed by Nards Belen, the husband of Manila Bulletin’s Ms. Crispina Belen. And the film is produced by Dennis Atienza.”

Is Lance ready now for some action scenes, since the movie he’s about to shoot is an action-suspense one? Is everything’s well now with his present facial reconstruction after that accident he had early this year?

“Yeah, definitely yes”, came Lance’s quick answer. “Kahit matamaan ng suntok o sampal ang face ko, everything’s input na. So it’s okay. I accepted the role because it was good and challenging. And I also miss doing action scenes.”

And aside from this film, another separate film is also coming-out.

“That one, I’ll gonna shoot on the month of October”, Lance continued saying. “It’s a new movie about anti-corruption on Politics. I will star there, opposite with veteran actor Pen Medina. It has no working title yet as of now.”

Indeed, busy. And Lance just rejected one film entry at Cinema One Digital Fest because it would require him to do three torrid love scenes with a fellow man.

“I have no qualms doing love scenes onscreen”, Lance explained. “But doing it with a fellow man like me, I’m not really into it. Me and my manager, Shandii Bacolod had discussed it in the past, no man-to-man sex on films for me. I could agree if the love thing’s implied lang, but to do an act of sex, I am sorry.”

On September 24, Lance will join his fellow La Sallistas for a worthwhile cause entitled: Operation Big Brother

“I was the chosen La Sallista in the field of Entertainment”, Lance said again. “Other La Sallistas in the field of Sports, Politics, Arts will also be there. We will be inspiring the new and younger students of La Salle Greenhills to be more successful and fruitful in their lives. That’s why it’s called Operation: Big Brother.”

Just recently, Lance bonded with the RVM nuns to further strengthen his Catholic religious faith. Lance has a new mission now of inspiring and helping others after that ill-fated facial accident.

“God works in mysterious ways”, Lance ended saying to a blogger. “He would change your life in  a blink of an eye, but certainly, He’ll do that for the better.”

Very well said, Lance.

paul aquino: “another look”

paul: worthy for "another look"

paul: worthy for “another look”

Sometimes, when a soul gets tired, he’s wanting and needing for a little CARESS. And a little thought, maybe. Just like words of comfort and concern… Acts of gratitude and kindness.

Paul might not know it. But he did it to someone. And that’s all “one” desired, to feel REASSURED.

It was “another look” at Paul Aquino. A model (of Elites Model Management and managed by Mr. Martin Martin). An athlete. An aspiring actor. In between smiles and awes, Paul answered some questions from an interviewing blogger with ease and comfort.

“I wanted a new look, another look, this time”, he said at the start of the interview with great movements and mannerisms of a real MAN. “I have to change my image. That’s why I decided to grow my beard. I wanted a more manly appeal this time. ‘Yun bang matapang ang dating, ganu’n. I’ve realized now, I’ve grown-up a lot. I’m now an adult man.”

With his few years of experiences as a ramp model, Paul had acquired a great advantage.

“I’ve gained more confidence”, he said. “I noticed lately, I walked a lot more better on the ramps. And as an athlete, my performance lately in basketball was great. Everything’s in the right track. I guess, it’s part of my journey from boyhood to manhood. You gain more confidence as years pass by.”

Paul had just finished shooting his very first film under Star Cinema. He’s now on his way into becoming a full-pledged actor.

“The title of my first film is Modus“, Paul revealed. “I played a spoiled brat, rich kid character there as Raffy Zulueta, who’s the next target of a serial killer. I had scenes there with mainstream actors Rayver Cruz and Empress Schuck. I am a son of a Senator there who’s quite wild and do drugs. It was a challenging experience for me portraying a character who is exactly NOT ME in real life. And it was fun, too.”

But right now, Paul is more focused in his studies. That’s why lately, he’s not going into many “go-sees” of fashion events and shoots, it’s because he’s giving priority now into his education.

“I am now graduating next year and I don’t want anything to hamper it”, Paul said. “I feel naman, more opportunities will still come even after I finish my studies. I am still young, anyway. There still are a lot of rooms for me.”

And we’ll definitely wait for that.

presenting: mr. tim greenwald, a new model of elites model management

tim greenwald

tim greenwald

At 22 years of age, it seemed that Tim Greenwald had done a lot of things. He started mobilizing himself and “exploring” the world since he was very young. And now, Tim is currently working as a United Nations Humanitarian Volunteer, which was the reason why he came to the Philippines- to offer his own advocacy works and charitable endeavors in this country.
“I’ll be here in the Philippines for only half a year”, Tim said to a blogger. “And I hope I can make the best out of it.”
But while here now in the Philippines, Tim’s going to try a little modelling on the side. Through his gym-buddy, Mr. Kane Rogal (also a model of Elites Model Management), he met Mr. Martin Martin, the “Godfather” of Elites.
“And then he asked me now to do a photo shoot for my portfolio”, Tim said. “And I said, yes, why not?”
But has he tried any modelling experiences in the past?
“I am very new, and it’s really my first time”, Tim answered. “I never experienced any modelling jobs before. That’s why I’m really excited to do this.”

Tim loves adventure. He loves backpacking and go to different places. He grew up in new York City and that’s where he also met his present girlfriend, Ms. Kalani Robertson, who’s also a U.N. Humanitarian Worker.
“We love doing things together”, Tim said once more. “And just like me now, she’s also joining the Elites Model Management.”
Tim can speak Spanish, French, Arabic and a little bit Portuguese. He is now also learning a few Tagalog words- the Filipino dialect.
“I love it here, the people are so friendly and warm”, Tim described the Filipino people and places. “I have been into Puerto Galera, Palawan, Anilao in Batangas, the Pagsanjan falls, and soon, me and my girlfriend Kalani is planning to go to Boracay. We both love scuba-diving and the beaches here are perfect.”
And now that Tim’s adding a new feather in his cap by joining the modelling industry, a blogger predicted he could very well make it.
“Thanks for that”, Tim said to a blogger in the end. “I am a very persistent person. I am determined. I am very devoted. And I am very active. I guess, I will never go into something that I will not fail.”
Very well said, Tim. Goodluck!
