skin rejuve is the secret to maria isabel lopez’ youthful looks

ms. maribel lopez while being treated at skin rejuve

Sa mga beteranang aktres natin ngayon, isa si Maribel Lopez sa naniniwalang hindi kailangang magpa-“retokada” (magpaayos ng mukha through surgical procedures) para gumanda. Iba kasi si Maribel, mas naniniwala siya sa “natural way of living”, kaya maski sa mga gawain niya, diet, pagpapaganda, at pakikisalamuha sa mga tao- “all natural lang ako talaga”, anya pa.

Isa sa malinaw na factor ay ang pagyo-yoga ni Maribel. Dito sa Yoga niya naiaalis ang mga negative factors sa buhay niya at nare-relieve ang kanyang stress. Pagdating naman sa physical fitness, regular habitue din sa Gold’s Gym si Mama Maribel. Lahat ng gawain niya- NATURAL. Walang bahid ng kaplastikan.

Kaya naman pagdating sa pagpapaganda, Maribel also opted to maintain her youthful looks and beauty sa pamamagitan ng mga natural na procedures like Aesthetic, Laser & Sculpture procedures na ino-offer sa Skin Rejuve Elite beauty clinic.

Sa may Timog Avenue branch ng Skin Rejuve madalas si Mama Maribel. Minsan pa nga, nakasalubong niya doon ang isang blogger habang pini-piktoryal ang mga bagets na modelo ng Elites Model Management. Naisaad pa ni Maribel sa blogger na regular siyang nagpupunta sa Skin Rejuve dahil regular din siyang napapanood ngayon sa telebisyon via her teleserye The Legal Wife, na kay taas-taas ng ratings.

“As an actress, it’s my duty to the people to always look young and good”, sey ni Mama Maribel. “At sa Skin Rejuve beauty clinic ni Prescy Valenzuela-Yulo, doon ko natagpuan ang tunay na magagandang resulta ng pagpapaganda. Very effective sa akin ang mga services nila kaya nawili na ako na laging pumunta dito. Especially their Oxygen Facial na talagang inaalis ang mga scars and pimples ko. Naku, sa TV kasi, madaling makita maski maliit na pimples, kaya dapat na maalagaan!

“And to add, Robert, no cuts and no blades ang procedures nila dito”, dugtong ni Maribel. “Kaya naman safe na safe ang feeling ko. They treat you to become more beautiful- but all in a natural way. Yan ang gusto ko. Bongga, di ba?”

Tuwang-tuwa din si Maribel dahil si Mrs. Yulo din ang bumili ng kanyang most expensive painting to date na na-exhibit niya months back sa Ricco Renzo Gallery, sa kanyang nakalipas na Beauty & Arts 3 event.

“Mrs. Prescy Valenzuela-Yulo is a Patroness of the Arts”, huling sambit ni Mama Maribel. “Everything beautiful, she’s in for it. Kaya naman talagang marami ang mas gumaganda ng husto kapag nakapunta na sa Skin Rejuve beauty clinic.”

“hindi ako nakikipag-compete kina vicky belo at manny calayan!”— mrs. prescy valenzuela-yulo

Ang nagdaang Beauty & Arts 3 event ni Maria Isabel Lopez ang unang-unang event na in-isponran ni Mrs. Prescy Valenzuela-Yulo at ng kanyang Skin Rejuve Elite beauty clinic. Kaya naman hindi pa siya ganu’n kasanay na makihalubilo sa mga showbiz people na bisita nu’ng gabi na yun ng event na ginanap nuong nagdaang buwan pa ng Pebrero. Very naive that evening si Mrs. Yulo, at tanging isang blogger lamang ang naka-tsikahan niya sa isang panayam.

Yes, it’s really my first time to sponsor an event like this”, nawika pa ni Mrs. Yulo sa isang blogger. “Pero very happy ako. Kasi, si Maribel Lopez, she’s been supporting Skin Rejuve beauty clinic ever since. Napaka-supportive talaga niya sa amin. Aside from the fact that she’s really a good friend of mine. At medyo shy pa ako, kasi first time kong maka-attend sa ganitong event.”

maribel lopez’ tweet and instagram post on skin rejuve

Very humble and low key si Mrs. Yulo. Kaya naman maganda ang impresyon na nilikha niya sa isang blogger. Kaya lang, hindi maiaalis na magtanong ng kaunting intriga kay Mrs. Yulo. Natural lang sigurong tanungin sa kanya kung handa ba siyang makipag-compete sa mga tulad nina Vicky Belo at Manny Calayan pagdating sa mga beauty clinics na namamayagpag na ngayon sa mundo ng entertainment scene?

“Hindi ako nakikipag-compete kina Vicky Belo at Manny Calayan”, maagap na sagot ni Mrs. Yulo. “Iba naman kasi ‘yung sa kanila. They offer surgical procedures to enhance the beauty of a celebrity. Samantalang ang Skin Rejuve, definitely, we DON’T OFFER SURGICAL PROCEDURES. Kaya iyon ang kaibahan ko sa kanila. So I can say, hindi ko sila ka-kumpitensya.”

Pag sinabing “non-surgical procedures”, ibig sabihin nu’n ay “no cuts and no blades”. Sa Skin Rejuve, mapapaganda nila ang isang kliyente sa pamamagitan lamang ng kanilang mga advanced medical machineries, without any surgical procedures.

“At saka mas affordable ang mga serbisyon namin”, pagtatapos na nasabi pa ni Mrs. Yulo sa isang blogger. “Maski isang ordinaryong estudyante ay kakayanin ang mga serbisyong ino-offer namin para ma-pamper ang mga sarili nila sa pagpapaganda. Kaya sana, subukan nilang pumasyal sa aming mga beauty clinics soon.”

Oo nga naman.

maribel lopez sa teleseryeng “the legal wife”: natural na natural!

Maribel Lopez is a refreshing addition sa mga senior supporting stars now na nasa ABS-CBN Channel 2 Kapamilya station.  Kasi, kapag nanonood ka sa mga teleseryes sa iba’t-ibang TV networks, tila ata sila-sila na lang ang nakikita mo. This time, naisipan ng channel 2 na kunin si Maribel sa teleseryeng The Legal Wife, na pinagbibidahan nina Angel Locsin, Jericho Rosales, JC de Vera, Christopher de Leon at Rio Locsin. At presto! Very refreshing talaga ang presence roon ni Maribel. Siya ang nagpo-provide ng light moments sa mga heavy dramatic scenes na lang palagi nina Angel at Jericho.

 

Character na character at na-“internalize” ng husto ni Maribel ang kanyang pagganap bilang isang nagma-may-ari ng carinderia at butihing ina roon ni Jericho, na “international” ang lahi yata ng mga anak niya at tila iba-iba yata ang tatay! Kasi, iba-iba ang mukha. May mukhang intsik, may mukhang negro, may mukhang Hapon… si Jericho lang ang tunay na Pinoy. This is a good concept for a mother-character on TV, at kung sino man ang nakaisip sa character ni Maribel sa teleseryeng The Legal Wife, hanga kami sa kanya.

 

Pero kung very refreshing man ang participation ni Mama Maribel sa nabanggit na teleserye, namamangha naman ang isang blogger sa galing ng kakayahan sa pagganap nina Ms. Rio Locsin, Christopher de Leon, Angel Locsin at, siyempre, si Jericho Rosales. Kapag sila na ang nasa eksena, malulula ka sa galing nila!

 

As of now, humahataw sa ratings ang The Legal Wife. Kaya naman very tight ang schedules lately ni Mama Maribel dahil panay ang tapings niya doon.

“Naku naman, Robert, dito ko pa rin kinukuha sa pag-arte ko ang bread and butter ko”, tanging nasambit ni Mama Maribel sa isang blogger minsan. “Acting in teleseryes is still my source of living. Diyan ko kinukuha ang pambayad sa mga bills. Kaya let’s face it, and let’s be realistic. Nariyan pa rin ang tinatawag na ARTS, pero kapag survival na ang pag-uusapan, sa pag-arte pa rin ako nabubuhay!”

 

Korek ka d’yan, Mama Maribel.

A MIRACLE IN THE LIFE OF DON GORDON BELL

FROM MR. DON GORDON BELL’S FB STATUS (FEBRUARY 4, 2014):

“It is 2:30 AM in Manila…After sleepless night before meeting with my doctor this morning, I finally got some assessment of my Health Condition… It was good news!…And I am still ‘Reflecting/pondering/OMGing, etc.’ Basically, I have great relief and a new lease on life; my body is rebuilding Red Blood cells, no cancerous tissue in throat; one month of ‘taking it easy’ to tone up and…still weak but future looks good. I was very concerned about my throat, swallowing, pain, etc…OH, the doctor said that Someone’s diagnosis was very accurate…tell you all soon. Next, I will see about Nutritionist and continuing to build up, tone, make a reassessment on priorities. I feel like a ‘burst of automatic fire’ passed by me, tracers slicing from left to right; hearing the bullets crack past my head; wondering “Why I didn’t get Hit” (with the BIG ‘C’!)…”absorbing what happened…RELIEF? Yes, and ‘survivor guilt’ to a certain extent…but one must ‘move on, forward until life’s objectives are met’-what ever it is for you or me. I have been re-born.”

from sssip 🙂

Mr. Don Gordon Bell, a veteran Hollywood film actor and now a photographer-actor now based here in the Philippines recently attended the Ani Ng Dangal awards together with Clara Ramona, a world-renowned flamenco dancer-choreographer. Ms. Ramona almost stole the limelight away from Superstar Nora Aunor and international film actress Angeli Bayani in the said event, as Don Gordon became Ms. Ramona’s “frontman”. Papparazzis and news cameramen suddenly flashed their bulb lights and cameras as Don led the way in taking pictures of the great flamenco dancer.

The likes of Brillante Mendoza, Will Fredo (a director from Hubo Productions), Ida Tiongson (producer of “Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir”), and others also took notice of Ms. Clara Ramona as she was being surrounded by papparazzis and cameramen.

Don was so proud of Clara being noticed at that event. It was also the latest big event that Don attended, after his doctor told him the good news: he’s out of the ‘BIC C’.

Right now, Don is taking a little more of his time. But he’s now excited to attend Maria Isabel Lopez’ next big thing: THE ARTS & BEAUTY 3 Painting Exhibit of beauty Queens to be held on February 12 at the Ricco Renzo Galleries.

Together with his buddy- New York-based photographer John Silao, Don is fully recuperating. A lot of things have happened in his life after this blogger featured Don on this great blog, indeed.

It’s like a turning point in Don’s life.  A MIRACLE IN THE LIFE OF MR. DON GORDON BELL.

As one blogger posted a reply in Mr. Bell’s FB Status: “YOU ARE A GOOD MAN, ‘CHARLIE BROWN (MR. DON GORDON BELL)!”

Thus, we affirm.

maria isabel lopez: agaw-eksena na sa teleseryeng “the legal wife”, headliner pa sa “arts & beauty 3” painting exhibit ng beauty queens!!!

ImageImage(on the photo: maria isabel lopez while donating blood for her friend don gordon bell. with maribel on the photo are don’s other friends- john and jojo.)

 

Super na “na-touched” ang isang blogger nang makita niya a few days ago ang isang larawan ni Maria Isabel Lopez sa Facebook, na kung saan ay nagdo-donate siya ng sarili niyang dugo para sa recovery ng kaibigan niyang Hollywood actor-photographer na si Don Gordon Bell. This is a very HUMANE act coming from a true friend. At nagkataong magkapareho pala ng blood type sina Maribel at Don Gordon (which is a “B+” blood type), at indeed, nakapagbigay nga si Maribel ng matinding effort to help a true friend. Tunay ngang napatunayan pa muli ni Maribel ang kanyang pagiging sincere sa kanyang mga kaibigang tinuturing. At mismong si Don Gordon Bell ay nagsabi ring: “Maria Isabel Lopez is the best person I’ve known in Philippine showbiz!”…

Para sa isang dayuhan na napamahal na sa Pilipinas na sabihin ang mga katagang ‘yun sa isang blogger, oo, tunay ka, napaka-totoong tao nga ni Miss Maribel Lopez.

ImageImageImageImage

Samantala, ugong-ugong sa sulok-sulok ng showbiz na “agaw-eksena” raw si Maribel sa mga matitindi niyang scenes sa bago niyang teleseryeng The Legal Wife, na kung saan ay gaganap siya bilang ina ni Jericho Rosales. Hindi raw nagpatalbog si Maribel sa isa pang seasoned actress na ka-level niya- si Miss Rio Locsin- in terms of acting, glamour and professionalism sa set. Kaya naman tuwang-tuwa ang mga taga-channel 2 kay Mama Maribel.

“Okey naman sa akin na gumanap nang isang ina”, sey pa ni Maribel sa isang blogger. “I have a daughter- si Mara- na hindi naman nalalayo ng husto sa edad ni Jericho. And at the same time, feel ko ang role ko sa teleserye- palaban!”

Mapapanood na ang nasabing teleseryeng The Legal Wife starting January 27, bilang pamalit sa Maria Mercedes na teleserye rin ng Dos.

arts and beauty

Samantala, on February 12, 2014, maghe-headline naman si Maribel, together with her fellow beauty queens sa isang napaka-sosyal na painting exhibit for a cause. Ito ang “Arts & Beauty 3” ng NCCA (National Comission for Culture & The Arts). Ito na bale ang third year ni Maribel na nag-spearhead sa artsy but charitable event na ito.

“Maski beauty queens kami, we have time to show our artistic sides din naman”, pagtatapos na wika ni Mama Maribel. “At ang event na ito, ang makikinabang naman ay ang mga charitable organizations at mga estudyante. Gusto naming i-spread sa mga kabataan ang kahalagaan ng pag-appreciate sa sining.”

Korek na korek ka diyan, Maribel.

PAALAM, CHITO… PAALAM!

"PAALAM, CHITO... PAALAM!"
“PAALAM, CHITO… PAALAM!”

 

Saan ka man naroroon ngayon, Chito, gusto kong malaman mo,

 

isa ka sa nagpataas sa estado ng mga manunulat sa showbiz… 

 

Iniangat mo ang “level” ng mga movie writers-

naging malapit kang kaibigan ng mga nirerespeto at hinahangaang mga artista…

 

Naging totoo kang tao.

 

Nagpakita ka ng tapang, ng conviction sa pagsusulat.

 

AT MINAHAL KA NG LAHAT, inakap, tinangaap ang iyong mga shortcomings dahil

ISA KANG TUNAY NA KAIBIGAN.

 

Nagsasalita lamang ng matuwid at tama… para na rin sa kapakanan ng lahat.

 

Sayang, Chito, hindi na natuloy ang plano nating libro ukol sa buhay mo.

 

Isa iyon sa mga huli mong pangarap na magawa.

 

Siguro, may dahilan ang Nasa Itaas kng bakit ka Niya kinuha…

 

Dahil gusto Niya na makapiling ka na NIYA…

 

Nu’ng huling gabi ng lamay mo,

nagpunta ako.

 

Alam ko, sa pamamagitan mo at ni Mama Maribel Lopez, (na siyang naghikayat sa akin na pumunta sa lamay mo),

muli kong makikita ang mga dati nating mga malalapit na kaibigan…

 

At ang sarap ng pakiramdam ko na makita sila MULI.

 

Parang ang tagal-tagal ko ring nawala,

Salamat na lamang at nagpunta sa huling gabi ng lamay mo.

 

Para maramdaman ko muli ang “kasabikan” ko sa showbiz at sa dati nating mga kaibigan.

 

Salamat, Chito.

Alam mo bang kay dami ko ring natutunan sa ‘yo?

 

Alam mo ‘yan.

Ngayon, isang pamamaalam na…

 

PAALAM, CHITO… PAALAM!

president of “manunuri ng pelikulang pilipino” (or Gawad Urian) praises mara lopez’ acting in her latest film with ms. nora aunor

mara in black and on the loose...
mara in black and on the loose…

The National Film Festival (All Masters Edition) of Sineng Pambansa had just ended. And the Cine Filipino Film Festival (sponsored by the people behind Channel 5) had just started. It opened a few days ago, and one of the early “buzzes” was Mara Lopez’ great acting in the movie Ang Kuwento Ni Mabuti, a movie that featured no less than Ms. Nora Aunor on the lead and Mara as one of the supports.

In the movie, Mara played Nora’s daughter. And according to an indie film director who called-up Mara’s mom (Ms. Maribel Lopez), the Manunuri Ng Pelikulang Pilipino (MPP), most especially its President Mr. Lito Zulueta, admired Mara’s acting greatness in the said film. And they wanted it to be relayed to Mara herself.

“I couldn’t believe it!”, Mara told this blogger. “I am so happy that they liked my acting there. The Manunuri‘s are the people behind Gawad Urian, isn’t it? Gosh, it’s a great honor for me!”

Other people also called-up Mara over the phone and they’re all congratulating her over her performance in the said film entry for the Cine Filipino fest. Lots of them, actually. And this made Mara even more excited and overwhelmed.

“I just did my best and I never knew people will like it”, Mara told one blogger again over a brief chat at her mobile phone. “My mom’s so excited about the news. I guess, she’s more happier than me. Haha.”

The Manunuri‘s said that Mara showed something in Ang Kuwento Ni Mabuti that she had never shown before. Maybe, too, they only saw that kind of acting from Mara, isn’t it?

Alongside with Mara, people were also amazed with Ms. Nora Aunor’s acting skills there. Many were saying that the Superstar would win again awards via the movie.

“Acting beside the Superstar herself, Ms. Nora Aunor was already a dream come true for me”, Mara ended saying. “And being noticed in this movie together with her, wow, I really couldn’t ask for more!”

Proud of you, Mara!
