James Reid is the latest endorser of Century Tuna featured in a sizzling new television commercial, now airing, that teasingly highlights his totally hot and chiseled bod. Actually, the TVC and billboard is part of an all-new advertising campaign created around the idea of transformation and metamorphosis, where James proudly joins the illustrious company of Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay.
And why James Reid? Well, it’s pretty evident that from the time he entered showbiz six years ago through the Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash to the present, he’s really been able to transform himself - in terms of his private life, career and of course his physique!

While others would probably turn complacent and simply rest on their achievements, James continues to further himself and his craft. He’s clearly more self-confident now and has since shed his timid persona and his lanky build. He hits the gym regularly, where weightlifting is his preferred workout, and maintains a balanced diet consisting of good carbs, no rice, and, of course, Century Tuna.
It’s no secret that James has had a string of box-office hits to his name (Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead), a much-watched teleserye (On The Wings of Love, which enjoyed top ratings during its run), a highly popular loveteam in JaDine, plus a Platinum album to boot and a new teleserye Till I Met You, all while keeping his feet firmly on the ground. So what’s not to love about him?

Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaha Charm Crowd at 23rd Pistahan Parade and Festival in San Francisco, California
Now on its 23rd year, the annual two-day Pistahan Parade & Festival in Yerba Buena Gardensremains one of the largest Filipino cultural celebrations in the U.S. This year, it celebrated the theme of "Journey to the Heart of SoMA Pilipinas" as in April, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors officially designated a Filipino Cultural Heritage District in the city's South of Market neighborhood. The designated area was named SoMA Pilipinas – bounded by Second, 11th, Market and Brannan streets.
ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel (TFC)underscored its longstanding partnership with organizer Filipino American Arts Exposition (FAAE) by participating in full force at the parade on Saturday and bringing the TFC Hour live on Sunday, headlined by the loveteam ofDaniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales (DanRich) from the very popular TFC teleserye, "Be My Lady". The real and reel life couple thoroughly charmed the crowd with their down-to-earth ways, high energy and eagerness to interact with the thousands of fans who came to watch them.
Below are scenes from the two-day event captured by Neil Enriquez, Franz Bonifacio, Maile Llaneza, Mimilanie Dayo, Roger Ramirez and Nerissa Fernandez.
In a press statement, Salceda questioned the "kneejerk" reaction to the issue of metro traffic, which he said had no "fundamental basis" and is "anti-poor."
"Where is the empirical evidence - time-and-motion study of current situation and simulation projections - to underpin as fundamental basis to this policy, which is always the kneejerk first move whenever the issue of Metro Manila traffic [is raised]?" Salceda said.
"Pokemon-playing in private cars pose more threat of aggravation to Metro Manila than provincial buses," he argued.
He noted that some Pokemon Go players stop at certain points or "lures" where rare characters of the game are caught.
"If you are rich enough to maintain a private car, you must be rich enough to yourself and your kids an Android, iPad or iPhone. Multiply that by the 2.5 million cars in Metro Manila," Salceda argued.
The lawmaker said that compared to the number of private vehicles in Metro Manila, there are only 3,300 provincial buses, with each carrying 50.
"It is anti-poor since provincial bus passengers are those who can only pay 450 (ordinary) and 750 (aircon) and cannot afford the more expensive plane fares," Salceda said.
"The measure is injurious to poor rural people in terms of: (1) additional inconvenience; (2) additional 'minimum' fare; (3) additional time of destination; and (4) double loading," Salceda added.
