Alex Gonzaga Reacts to Toni and Paul Soriano Engagement: "Sad kase may kahati na ako kay Ate."


Immediately after Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano announced their engagement on The Buzz (WATCH THE FULL VIDEO INTERVIEW HERE), Alex Gonzaga took to photo-sharing site Instagram her reactions to the upcoming wedding of her sister to Paul.
Alex shared a photo of Toni and Paul taken during the engagement with the caption: “Finally i can share this to everyone!!!!!!!!! I will have a BROTHER!! I'm medyo saaad coz may kahati na ako sa ate but I can never think of anyone more deserving and suitable for my sister so i'm still really really happy!




During their “The Buzz” announcement, Toni said Alex was the most affected. She also revealed that Alex even walked out several times when the proposal was happening. Although she plans of leaving their Rizal residence once she got married, Toni promised Alex that she will still guide her even though she will now start her own family.

Si Alex ang pinakahirap na hirap sa lahat kasi 'yung rooms namin connecting and I believe na it’s not just our rooms that are connected. Our souls are also connected. Bago pa ako masaktan, nasasaktan na si Alex for me. Bago pa ako magsalita, siya 'yung unang magsasalita for me. Lagi niyang sinasabi, ‘Kapag kinasal ka na tapos may bahay na kayo, may kwarto ako?’ Sabi ko, ‘Oo, Catherine. Hindi ako mawawala sa buhay mo. May madadagdag pa nga sa buhay mo, si Paul,’” she said.

Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano Announce Engangement on The Buzz (Full Video Interview)


Long live love!

After seven long years, Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano are enganged!

The confirmation was made by the happy couple on The Buzz on Sunday, February 1, immediately after shutting down several rumors surrounding their relationship: Is Toni Gonzaga pregnant? Did Daddy Bonoy and Mommy Pinty continue to disapprove their relationship? Did they break-up?

The 31-year-old Kapamilya actress-host and the 33-year-old director, to the delight of everyone watching, confirmed with Kris Aquino that they are officially engaged and their wedding will happen within the year.





Paul said that he proposed to Toni on January 21 at the latter's family home in Rizal, the day after Toni's birthday in front of Daddy Bonoy, Mommy Pinty and Toni's sister Alex.

“It was right after her birthday. It was like 12:30 a.m. January 21. We'd just come from a birthday dinner and I had the ring in my pocket the whole dinner. I just wanted to wait for the right private moment. It happened in her home, just very simple. She was in her pantulog already,” Paul said.

I was in tears. It was quite an emotional moment. Before we went up to her living room, I had to talk to Tito Bonoy and Tita Pinty and I showed them the ring. I said, ‘Do you mind po if I propose to Toni?’ And her mom was like, ‘Oh it’s about time.’ So that was nice. And the dad looks at me and said, ‘Why are you asking me? Ask her.’ That meant there was that blessing. I wanted to give honor to her parents first. We literally ran into her living room,” the director narrated further.



So how did her propose to Toni?

I just told her family - I know they are only four -- I said, ‘I’m not here to take her away from you guys. I’m actually here to join you if that’s possible.’ When they hugged, I said this is one of the moments where you just have to cry. I just got down on my knee and I asked her if she will marry me. She said yes. Before I was done, I think halfway through the question pa lang, nag-yes na.” Paul told Kris.

The teary-eyed Toni, on her part, said: “Nung nagsasalita siya, when he was going to propose sa akin, nag-flashback lahat from day one. I remember there were times na he would tell me, ‘For the past seven years, I was never a priority in your life. It has always been God, your family, your work and me… I’ve accepted that for seven years.’ I always pray to God, sabi ko, ‘Lord kung dadating 'yung time na mapagod na si Paul kasi hindi na niya kaya maghintay, Ikaw na ang bahala,’

He waited for me. Kaya sabi ko, if I become his wife, hindi na siya number three priority. I will make sure na he will only be my main priority and everything else is secondary na lang. I’d like to thank him for enduring everything, for the patience, for understanding and for honoring my parents, for proving that true love waits,

When he honored my parents, na-realize ko na ito 'yung lalaki na gusto ko maging ama ng mga anak ko. He will be a good father kasi naiintindihan niya 'yung nararamdaman ng tatay ko.

Live, Feel and Look Like a Celebrity with the New Gillette Mach3 Turbo


Last January 25, a bunch of celebrities, lifestyle bloggers, and Pinoys from all walks of life had their most surprising time of their lives learning that, all this time, they were shaving the wrong way, during the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Shaving Challenge at Eastwood Mall in Quezon City.




Through the challenge, Boys Night Out's Tony Toni, Sam YG, and Slick Rick demonstrated how to best shave their facial hair avoiding post shaving redness that is a common problem with Filipinos. Men who tried the challenge found that their usual regimen, which is to use disposable razors, led to an uncomfortable and rough shaving experience on one side of their face. With hair being pulled instead of being cut properly, this led to the parallel of the shave with uncomfortable and rough skin afterwards. To their awe, they realized that they need not suffer more as there is an easy solution to redness and irritation that is the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo.




Filipinos are more aware of design and technology nowadays and how these are vital in their lives, they are also now more conscious about these can play a big part in grooming. Gillette Mach 3 Turbo ensures that Filipinos are more confident about their appearance, so they can look and actually be more confident every day. The new Gillette Mach 3 Turbo delivers an exceptionally closer shave with less irritation, even on the most sensitive areas of the face - including the neck and jaw line and contour of the face. The technology reduces irritation and guarantees up to zero redness, thereby making the Filipino more at ease, and capable to tackle whatever challenge come their way,” says,  P&G Philippines’ Chief Marketing Officer – Mr. Ramachandra Golikere.


GILLETTE MACH3 TURBO FEATURES:
  • It has a thinner steel with a diamond-like coating to ensure a comfortable shave.
  • The nano thin blades are progressively aligned to extend gradually closer to the hair, resulting in a close shave in a single stroke. Lesser strokes ensure less irritation on your skin.
  • The blades are individually spring mounted to automatically adjust to different levels of shaving pressure and skin types. The Gillette Mach 3 does more of the work on your behalf so you are able to have an easier but more comprehensive shave.
  • A front-pivoting head ensures the razor moves fluidly over the face so you don’t have to worry about maneuvering the blade on your face for a close shave.
  • All of these functions help reduce the pressure of the blades on the skin; guaranteeing a close and more comfortable shave with zero redness.

Gillette Mach 3 vs. Blue II Disposable - Zero Redness Guarantee Challenge with the Boys Night Out:



Gillette has been at the cutting edge of blade and razor technology for more than 100 years, resulting in a deep understanding of men`s shaving needs, the science behind shaving, and the impact of shaving on men`s skin, Your needs define the design of the new Gillette Mach 3 Turbo, and Gillette.

TV5 Earns the Admiration of Televiewers, Netizens with its Multi-platform Pope Francis PH Visit Coverage

TV5 Earns the Admiration of Televiewers, Netizens with its Multi-platform Pope Francis PH Visit Coverage


TV5's earned high praises among viewers, netizens and common folk alike with its youthful and multi-platform Papal visit coverage. Likewise, the network's  #DearPopeFrancis and #WeLovePopeFrancis hashtags garnered a total of over 5B impressions on Twitter, with the former being officially marked as the most mentioned Papal visit-dedicated hashtag in the country (over 3B impressions).  In addition, News5's Papal correspondent, Carla Lim, made headlines when Pope Francis deemed her a "brave" journalist during their brief Q&A with all the other journalists aboard the Papal plane. Also, Rescue5, TV5's acclaimed Emergency Response Unit, was on hand to aid the millions of people in the Papal motorcade.




At the height of the entire nation’s positivity and utmost spiritual experience during the historic visit of Pope Francis, viewers, netizens and common folk alike were also expressive of their delight and gratitude towards TV5, taking notice of the Kapatid Network’s uniquely youthful, comprehensive and exclusive 360-degree coverage that allowed even more Filipinos from all walks of life and from all parts of the world to take part in the Papal visit.

To officially kick off its multi-platform Papal visit coverage, TV5 first launched the highly successful #DearPopeFrancis online campaign last December 2014, which quickly gained ground among netizens because of the hashtag’s uniquely personal and meaningful tone that only further ignited the entire nation’s excitement and anticipation in welcoming the Holy Pope. Personal greetings and messages, prayer offerings, intentions and petitions mentioning the hashtag #DearPopeFrancis kept pouring in most especially on Twitter where not only did #DearPopeFrancis trend worldwide but also garnered an unprecedented 3 billion impressions to date – officially marking TV5’s #DearPopeFrancis as the most mentioned Papal visit-dedicated hashtag in the country.

Furthermore, with the undeniably overwhelming response of millions of Filipinos throughout Pope Francis’ stay in the country, TV5 was able to rally even more Filipinos to celebrate not only this historic occasion, but the People’s Pope himself, by spearheading the introduction of the timely hashtag #WeLovePopeFrancis. With this, TV5 was able to prove once more why the Philippines is indeed the ‘social media capital of the world’, as in just a span of two days, the Kapatid Network’s #WeLovePopeFrancis hashtag topped the worldwide trends on Twitter, and accumulated a remarkable 2 billion impressions.




Aside from these, TV5’s Papal visit campaign also turned heads, literally, with its wide-reaching and groundbreaking live television coverage airing on several Smart LED billboards in high-traffic areas in Metro Manila, as well as in Cebu and Davao. With TV5’s close partnership with the country’s leading wireless service provider, Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), as well as Cignal, the Philippines’ premier DTH satellite provider, this game-changing and never-before-seen offering ultimately underscored the entire MVP Group of Companies’ commitment in ensuring that more Filipinos could be part of this rare experience.

TV5’s television coverage and reportorial style of the Papal visit likewise stood out amongst viewers following News5’s overall celebratory and festive vibe that perfectly embodied the emotions of each and every Filipino. Viewers positively responded as well to the in-depth reporting of News5’s most credible and seasoned anchors that complemented the uniquely youthful approach brought to the table by the Network’s commendable young reporters. Most notable of them was Papal correspondent and News5’s very own Carla Lim, who made headlines not just because she was the youngest journalist on board the Papal plane, but more so for her straight-to-the-point question for Pope Francis that earned her the acknowledgement as a “brave” journalist from the Pope himself. 

More so, News5 was able to give viewers a unique spin on the Papal visit through the eyes of the Network’s special field anchors – composed of some of the most widely-followed personalities in the industry. Dubbed as the ‘Popeparazzis’, News5 anchor Lourd de Veyra teamed up anew with Ramon Bautista, Jun Sabayton and RA Rivera,
delivering various news-worthy reports from a fresh perspective, which no other news outlet covered.

In addition, more than just delivering relevant Papal visit-related news, News5 also reaffirmed its “Higit sa Balita, Aksyon” branding during this momentous event, where the Network’s highly acclaimed Emergency Response Unit, Rescue5, took action and brought immediate relief and assistance to those in need among the huge crowd in the Papal motorcade and other activities. Rescue5 attended to several individuals who fainted, assisted an elderly woman who suffered a seizure, and likewise helped a few young children who got separated from their family to search for their loved ones.




TV5 was also widely acknowledged for its exclusive and real-time coverage across several multimedia platforms, be it on-air, online or on-ground. These included blow-by-blow updates and engaging content on social media, which was also supplemented on-air through News5’s Social Media Command Center; free livestreaming features on TV5’s Papal visit-dedicated website, www.DearPopeFrancis.ph; the innovative geo-mapping feature on TV5’s online news portal, InterAksyon.com, which allowed the public to track Pope Francis’ whereabouts and itinerary in the country; live simulcast on Radyo5 92.3 News FM, whose unique presence in the FM band allowed cellphone users and the mobile market to be easily updated; and finally, the free public viewing of TV5’s live television coverage in the Smart-Araneta Coliseum all throughout the actual Papal visit.
