Tom Rodriguez Suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease

Forgetting and being forgotten are two very difficult situations to be in.

And in Someone to Watch Over Me, the latest drama series airing this August on GMA Pinoy TV, we get to see both sides as Kapuso hunk Tom Rodriguez tackles the role of TJ Chavez, a man who has Alzheimer’s disease, while Kapuso Premier Actress Lovi Poe takes on the role of his wife Joanna Mercado.

Due to Alzheimer’s, TJ slowly forgets about Joanna, remembering only his previous girlfriend.

For Tom, the role is one that is far from any other he has portrayed, which is why he is getting more into character by reading up on the medical condition. “Right now, I am just trying to educate myself with this illness [Alzheimer’s] because it’s a very real thing pala. You know, just a few months before this, I had no idea. Like, ganito pala kabilis, ka-rapid yung disease na [Like, the disease develops very fast, rapidly that] you will be able to see the deterioration right away. For me, I even started doing mind exercises kasi [because] I’m an over-thinker and my hobby is to stimulate my brain. Kasi [Because] I love reading, I love studying, I love taking courses, I love doing many techniques. Kaya [Which is why] to prepare for a role that’s as heavy as this, it must be a superb one,” said the actor.

Lovi, meanwhile, is preparing herself for the very challenging role of a woman who has to deal with the loss of her husband’s memory of their relationship. “Actually, ini-imbibe ko na yung pain na nararamdaman ni Joanna para pagdating sa set, ready na ako. Pero sobra akong nagpapasalamat palagi kasi sa lahat naman ng binibigay nila sa akin na projects, masaya ako dun. And with the thought na they’re trusting me with this, I want to make sure that I give my best kasi hindi biro yung mga roles na binibigay nila sa akin [Actually, I’ve started to imbibe the pain Joanna feels so that I’ll be ready when I come on to the set. But I’m always extremely grateful because I’m really happy with all the projects I’m being given. And with the thought that they’re trusting me with this, I want to make sure that I give my best because these are very serious roles],” says the award-winning actress.

Join Tom and Lovi as they explore the complexities of TJ and Joanna’s relationship in the intriguing GMA drama series Someone to Watch Over Me, coming soon on GMA Pinoy TV this August.

Ogie Alcasid In Talks for Possible Transfer to ABS-CBN this Month

After appearing twice on ASAP this year and joining some Kapamilya award-winnig musicians in MMK 25th anniversary commemorative album called "MMK Life Songs," his possible transfer to Kapamilya station after his TV5 contract expires this month is on the bag, reports said.  

When asked during the press conference for his upcoming birthday concert “Ayokong Tumanda” at Music Museum, Ogie said, “The truth is my contract [with TV5] is expiring August 18. Thankful ako sa network ko at hindi nila ako nire-restrict. Let’s face it, wala naman kaming show ngayon. Wala kaming ibang content kung saan ako pwede lumabas so naiintindihan naman nila ‘yon.”

He further said, “I still have to talk to my manager kung saan ba pupunta? Ang focus ko ngayon tapusin muna ang concert tapos saka na lang mag-isip one-by-one, kasi nagpatong-patong. Anything is possible. Pero ang feeling ko sa three years being with TV5 we weren’t able to accomplish what we were supposed to accomplish. So kung iiwan ko lang ‘yun na ganoon there’s big part of me na sige baka kaya pa naman. However, kung hindi na kaya, kung wala na, then it’s time to move on. I don’t want to base my position on anything else but where am I needed most at this point,”

KOJIESAN Celebrates UnbeaTEN Years of Bringing Beauty to Light to Millions of Filipinas

Beauty Elements Venture’s Inc. (BEVI), the manufacturer of the country’s favorite skin-lightening product, Kojiesan, is celebrating 10 fruitful years of bringing a lighter, flawless and more beautiful complexion to Filipinos.

BEVI’s success story is a testament to the undaunted determination of its owner. From a few dozen orders to millions of bars sold, the soap steadily became a favorite among Filipinos. The innovative product reached consumers across the country, and soon after, distribution went worldwide as an export commodity.

BEVI started in a humble office in a residential area of Makati. Now, the company operates from an entire building. It also owns 6 hectares of manufacturing facilities in San Pablo, Laguna, providing employment to more than 500 employees.

BEVI launched the original kojic acid soap formulated the traditional Japanese way and made it even better by adding high-grade virgin coconut oil into the mix.

Kojiesan is an exceptional treatment to even out skin tone, erase dark spots, and other forms of skin pigmentations. It also corrects skin discoloration while lightening the skin. The Kojiesan Classic Line includes:

Skin Lightening Soap
Face Lightening Cream
Body Lightening Lotion

With the success of the Classic Line, Kojiesan was able to extend its product lines to other categories such as:

Acne treatment
Men's Skincare
Cellulite control

Results vary individually. How your skin reacts to any skin lightener will depend on your unique skin sensitivity, the extent of the pigmentation, and/or daily sun exposure. Initially, an improvement should be seen in the first or second week, then the ultimate result within the next 30 days or a few weeks thereafter.

Kojiesan’s commitment to quality is reflected in the recognition it garnered for five consecutive years as “Bath Soap Brand of the Year” at the Watson's Health and Beauty Awards and Consumer “SM Top Choice” Awards.

With more tricks than truth behind what brands say, Kojiesan enjoins us to be careful with what we buy. Some labels brandish catchy, creative terms - triple effect this, intensive that, pinkish white whatever, and touting invented numbers - 4 tones fairer, 7 days faster - with zero consideration for your natural skin’s reaction to adverse products.

And for all the claims and white lies told, the question remains: have they shown us results? It’s time we see the light. No lab-made chemical complexes, no marketing-invented promises. Just you and your natural beauty, shining at its lightest.

The proof is in the pigment, and seeing is believing. So don’t let those brands tell you what works for you. Join the millions who’ve witnessed visible results, because it’s time to BRING YOUR SKIN TO LIGHT with the country’s No. 1 kojic soap: KOJIESAN! SEE IT YOURSELF.

We will continue to innovate products and expand our distribution to bring the highest level of consumer experience to a greater number of people. We want to be known as the company who delivers quality and effective products,” says BEVI marketing head, Tricia Gregorio.
