FANNY ‘TF’ SERRANO for NOVU HAIR!

fanny tf serrano: perfect model for NOVU HAIR.
fanny tf serrano: "hair-loss" no more.
tf: one of the best-dressed celebrities.

Ang ‘simpleng himala ng siyensya’ sa buhay ng isang Fanny TF Serrano!

At 63 years of age (yes, TF is not denying her age), nagkaroon siya ng problema sa kanyang dating makapal na buhok. At mismo siya na isang hairdresser/celebrity ay hindi maremedyuhan ito:

“Nagsimula ‘yan last year, palala ng palala ang pagkalugas ng hair ko!”, kuwento sa amin ni TF (a.k.a. Fanny Serrano). “Nu’ng nasa 40’s ako, ang kapal-kapal ng buhok ko, wala akong ka-proble-problema! Larga lang ako ng larga…

“Pero yun nga, nu’ng umabot na ako ng 60’s, napansin ko, unti-unti nang nalalagas ang hair ko. Nung una, hindi ako kumikibo. Pero nag-worry na ako later on, kasi, kada maliligo ako sa sink, napansin ko, bumabara ang mga nalugas na buhok ko sa sinkhole. Pag natutulog ako at nakasandal sa unan ko, paggising ko ng umaga, makikita ko ang mga nalugas na hair ko sa unan ko…

“I began to worry, baka may sakit akong cancer or something. Hanggang sa talagang halos makalbo na ako and that’s the time na I started using wiglets. Dalawa pa nga ang naging wigs ko. Salitan kong sinusuot….

“Lahat na yata ng hair loss treatments ay na-try ko na”, dugtong na wika ni TF. “Then, more than five months ago, may nagbanggit sa akin about NOVU HAIR treatment. I started using it, and presto! Unti-unti nang bumalik sa pagiging makapal ang hair ko!

“Nakita ko na lang, after two weeks of using it, may umuusbong na parang mga blackheads sa ulo kong nawalan ng buhok. Tinitignan ko ang pillow ko every morning soon after that, wala na akong nalulugas na buhok. It’s a miracle! A miracle of science!”, naibulalas pa ni TF.

At ngayon, totally “hair-loss free” na si TF. Kaya ganun na lamang siya ka-excited na i-share sa lahat ng tao ang magagandang pangyayari na ito sa kanyang buhay. NOVU HAIR really did wonders to him!

At dahil isa si TF sa mga nag-testify ng ‘magical wonders’ ng Novu Hair, siya ay kinuha na ring billboard model and bus advertisements model ng Novu Hair.  Sa true, ang produktong ito ay makakatulong sa lahat ng taong may problema sa nakakalbo na nilang buhok.

“Salamat sa Novu Hair!”, tanging nasambit na lamang ni Fanny TF Serrano.

Kasalukuyan nang nagsu-shooting ang iba’t ibang independent production teams na may official entry sa upcoming 8th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival na nakatakdang ganapin sa July 20-29, 2012.

Ang annual Pinoy indie filmfest ay itatanghal sa mga teatro ng Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) sa Roxas Blvd., Pasay City; sa Greenbelt 3 Cinema sa Makati City; at Trinoma Cinema sa Quezon City, ang bagong dagdag  na sinehan ngayong taon.

Habang papalapit ang “Cinemalaya month” sa July, marami ang curious at excited malaman kung sinu-sino ang mga artistang gaganap sa mga bagong pelikulang kalahok.

Lalo pang umigting ang pananabik ng mga Pinoy film enthusiasts sa Cinemalaya nang manalo si Eugene Domingo bilang People’s Choice for Best Actress sa 6th Asian Film Festival, na ginanap noong March sa Hong Kong, para sa Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank.

Nanalo din sa naturang international film festival si Shamaine Buencamino bilang Best Supporting Actress para sa Niño.

Tinalo nina Eugene at Shamaine ang kanilang mga co-nominees mula sa iba’t ibang Asian countries katulad ng Thailand, Iran, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Mainland China, at iba pa.

Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank won best film at Cinemalaya 2011, while Niño won a special jury prize.

MAINSTREAM ACTORS. Pinapalagay ng marami na ang Batch 2012 ng Cinemalaya, sa eight-year history nito, ang may mga pinakamalalaking bituin sa casting dahil pawang mainstream actors ang nasa major cast ng 15 full-length feature films.

Para sa taong ito, malalaking pangalan sa industriya ang nasa lineup ng Cinemalaya sa karamihan ng film entries: Judy Ann Santos, Coco Martin, Dawn Zulueta, Eddie Garcia, Dennis Trillo, Janice de Belen, Iza Calzado, Mylene Dizon, Alessandra de Rossi, Jodi Sta. Maria, Armida Sigiuon-Reyna, Joel Torre, Angel Aquino, Zanjoe Marrudo, JM de Guzman, just to name a few.

Sa isang entry, lead ang sikat na Thai actor na si Ananda Everingham and in the same film ay naka-cast rin ang Japanese actress na si Kiki Sugino.

CINEMALAYA ENTRIES. Hindi rin biro ang proseso ng pagpili ng official finalists sa Cinemalaya.

Mula sa mahigit 100 promising screenwriters, nagsumite ang bawat isa ng kani-kanilang scripts para sa film grant na P500,000 for each chosen film mula sa Cinemalaya Foundation na pinangungunahan ni Tony Boy Cojuangco.

Ang mapipiling entry mula sa sinumiteng scripts ay kailangang pang hanapan ng co-producers upang punuan ang kabuuang production cost.

CATEGORIES. Dalawa ang kategoryang pinaglalabanan ng mga pelikula.

Una ay ang “New Breed Category” kunsaan kalahok ang mga baguhang filmmakers na wala pang tatlong pelikula ang naipapalabas sa commercial theaters.

Ikalawang kategorya naman ay ang “Directors Showcase,” na nasa-ikatlong taon pa lamang.

Nagsimula ang kategoryang ito noong 2012 dahil sa hiling ng ilang mga beteranong filmmakers na makalahok sa festival.

 

welcome to the christian world, dorothy bernice!

this blogger with mr. & mrs. falconi and baby nice...

Napakasimple. Nakakataba ng puso. Napaka-matiwasay na selebrasyon. Tumutusok sa puso. Lumuluha sa galak. Nag-uumapaw na pagtanggap at pagmamahal…

Iyan ang naramdaman ng blogger na ito sa araw na iyon ng Linggo,  April 22, 2012 – para sa Christening reception ni Dorothy Bernice, a.k.a. “Nice” or baby Nice- sa Max’s Restaurant in Alabang Town Center.

May umaalis, may dumarating naman… Kaya sadyang napaka-lalim ng kahulugan ng pagdalo namin sa reception na ito ng Christening ni baby Nice. Isang hudyat ng panibagong buhay, muling pagtanggap sa buhay… at pagmamahal…

Ang pagdating sa mundo ng Kristiyanismo ni baby Nice ay isang napaka-positibong pangyayari sa mundong ating ginagalawan. Ibig sabihin nito, isa na namang “angel warrior” ang makikipaglaban para puksain ang mga masasama…

Salamat sa napaka-espesyal na imbitasyon sa amin ni Mr. Angelo Falconi, ang kaibigan naming celebrity hairdresser na officer (bilang isa sa mga Assistant Auditors) ng PICA (Philippine International Cosmetologists Association) na kung saan ay si Ms. Fanny ‘TF’ Serrano ang siyang pinaka-Chairman nila at Adviser. Ang Presidente naman ay si Mr. Edwin Samot.

Napakasarap ng mga putaheng inihain sa Max’s Restaurant in Alabang Town Center nu’ng araw na iyon. May kare-kare, crispy pata, fish fillets, lumpia, sinigang na bangus, fried chicken at iba pa. Talagang nabusog kami to the maxxxxxx!!!

Very warm and hospitable naman ang proud parents that afternoon na sina Mr. Angelo Falconi at Mrs. Stiffany Guira-Falconi. Ang guapo-guapo ng aming ‘hidden angel’ na si Mr. Falconi sabay akap sa amin bilang appreciation niya sa aming pagdalo. At si Mrs. Falconi naman, habang kinapanayaman namin ay naramdaman naming isang napaka-mabait na maybahay at ina. A very nice couple, iyan sina Mr. & Mrs. Falconi!

Ang suwerte-suwerte ni baby Nice for having such a good dad and mom. For sure, she will grow up to be a very nice lady.

Nakita rin namin si Ma’m Jazmin Trinidad-Tecson (indie film producer) with her handsome teenaged sons na sina Sean Tecson at Jervin Tecson. Very slim and sexy si Jazmin, every inch a model…

Very distuinguished din ang iba pang guests nina Mr. & Mrs. Falconi that afternoon. Pati mga relatives nila, halata mong well-mannered at mga edukadong tao…

Lahat sila, tuwang-tuwa kay Baby Nice!

To Mr. & Mrs. Falconi and Baby Nice: CONGRATULATIONS!!!

ENZO BLDG. Jupiter Street, Makati.

the recently-concluded poster of "moods", the fashion show, which highlighted mr. lance raymundo's comeback on the catwalk.

He wore and modelled the Menswear by Hanna Delos Reyes.

It’s a Benefit Fashion show Directed by Gerry Katigbak , which featured the Designs of the SOFA Fashion Students.

It was great! Lance was so happy to model again and go back to his modelling roots (yes, he started it out as a model first before he went into singing and later on, acting).

lance walks the ramp.
“Taken Last Saturday, April 20. When I Guested at the Moods Fashion Show in SOFA to Model Hanna De Los Reyes‘s Menswear. This is the only clear shot my RM was able to capture, but I’m waiting for the official shots. Will post more soon! Haven’t modeled since I moved on to singing/acting, I’ve probably forgotten how to walk coz it’s been years LOL, but it was pretty fun doing it again!”
