The fifth instalment of the massively successful Transformers franchise is coming to Philippine theatres on June 21, 2017,

The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

Transformers: The Last Knight is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Sarah Geronimo Speaks Up on What Keeps Her Voice Smooth - the KAMILLOSAN M SPRAY

Your voice plays an integral part in your everyday activities. However, it is inevitable that your lifestyle could take its toll on your voice, like when you get sore throat.

Sore throat is normally caused by viruses or bacteria. That’s why sometimes beyond just irritation or itchiness, you feel pain in swallowing and swelling.

Several other things can cause sore throat. In a tropical country like the Philippines, there are different factors that can take a toll on your system. Changes in temperature and weather can affect your throat. Other factors of sore throat are also airborne such as outdoor pollution, allergens in the air, smoking cigarettes, and second-hand smoking. Excessive and forceful usage of your voice can also cause muscle strain.  

Presenting Kamillosan M Spray – a clinically proven all-natural sore throat spray solution. It contains 8 active ingredients that effectively soothe and relieve sore throat.

These 8 ingredients (Chamomile extract, Methyl salicylate, Peppermint oil, Sage oil, Anise oil, dwarf pine needle oil, Bergamot oil, Cineol) – work together in fighting and treating sore throat. Its main ingredient, Chamomile, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to reduce pain, swelling, and redness. Combined with the anti-bacterial effects of essential oils such as Peppermint, Sage, and Bergamot, Kamillosan M is highly suited for sore throat relief.

The natural ingredients also lend to the minty fresh sweet aftertaste, unlike the other medicinal throat sprays in the market today.

Kamillosan M Spray is from A. Menarini Philippines, which belongs to one of the largest Italian biopharmaecutical groups, Menarini.

Last April 21, 2017, Kamillosan launched its latest campaign with a new endorser at Discovery Primera. This was also the venue where Kamillosan launched its Speak Up advocacy – in the hopes of making the brand mean more to the market beyond just providing relief from sore throat.

While waiting for the event to start, guests were requested to participate in the Kamillosan video booth, and record their answers to the question, “How do you encourage people with the power of your voice?” These videos were then shown at the end of the program and uploaded on the brand’s official Facebook page, Kamillosan PH.


The actual event kicked off with a brief welcome and introduction from A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres. This was followed by an overview on sore throat by Dra. Clarissa Fortuna, supported by a product discussion from the brand’s medical manager, Dr. Gabby Santos.

But the voice that got everyone speaking up was Kamillosan’s newest endorser – Sarah Geronimo. She charmed everyone in her grand entrance as she powerfully sang and captured hearts, as she always does. Sarah also shared her own singing journey which highlighted how she learned to be an inspiration and motivation to others by power of voice and positivity – making her the perfect fit for Kamillosan’s Speak Up campaign.

The essence of our campaign is to really encourage people to speak up with the help of Kamillosan. Just like Sarah, we hope to inspire people to pursue their passion without any hindrance along the way, especially sore throat,” shared Patty Nuqui, Marketing Director of Kamillosan.

We are truly proud and delighted to have this opportunity to not just introduce a product we support and believe in, but to have Kamillosan take the higher ground and mean more to people than just a product for sore throat,” A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres, added.

The event ended on a high note, with some of the guests creating cheers that captured the essence of Kamillosan and the Speak Up campaign.

To know more about Kamillosan, visit and like Kamillosan PH on Facebook.
Kamillosan is available in all leading drugstores nationwide at Php428.00 SRP. A 15mL bottle of Kamillosan is good for 104 sprays.

Hottest Online Dancing Loveteam Julian Trono and Ella Cruz Gear Up for Upcoming Movie and TV Series #JulianElla

Julian Trono and Ella Cruz are each known for their dance covers on YouTube which are currently garnering millions of views. Ella’s biggest video hit is her version of Fifth Harmony’s “Work It” which has reached the 6 million mark. 

For Julian, his “Fetty Dance Craze” has more than 4 million views. Their first collaboration video, “Versace on the Floor,” which was released last February, has garnered over 3 million views. 

But aside from dancing, these young talents are recording artists, too! Ella’s single “Tamis” and Julian’s “Balang Araw” did very well in various music charts right after being released by Viva Records.

But it was when Julian appeared on Ella’s music video for “Tamis” last year that the two started to grab everyone’s attention. Their body language created such chemistry that prompted Viva to launch them as a dancing love team with the moniker “JulianElla.” And since January while fronting for the mall shows of several OPM artists, the tandem started to draw huge crowds of shrieking young fans which eventually grew as a fan base. Recently, they unleashed their first duet “Tumalon” which sealed their career as the new love team on the block. 

And now the time has come. Julian and Ella are slated to star in a movie and an upcoming TV series, not as support to other love teams, but as the lead stars themselves! 

In fact, the Viva Artists Agency talents have started pre-production work on their launching movie with the working title “Fanboy/Fangirl.” In this lighthearted romance-comedy, Julian will take on the role of a wannabe actor and Ella will portray a Korenovela dubber who will help Julian’s character improve his acting skills in order to land the breaks he has been chasing after. The movie promises to be a feel-good youth pop piece in the mold of “Diary Ng Panget,” the blockbuster from Ella and Julian’s home studio, Viva Films.

Speaking of “Diary Ng Panget” which was adapted from a Wattpad hit, Ella and Julian’s other major project is a TV series based on another Wattpad-hit-turned-bestselling-book-series, “Break The Cassanova’s Heart.” The weekly series will air on network TV in the third quarter of the year.

We’re so blessed with all these opportunities,” says Julian. “Sunod-sunod ang mga projects. We’re super thankful to Viva.” Ella shares the sentiments and adds that they are both very excited and nervous at the same time. “Nakaka-tense din. Big challenge for me and Julian to prove ourselves. For sure we’ll give our all para hindi kami mapahiya sa mga fans and supporters namin.”

Check out the music video for Julianella‘s recently-released single called “Tumalon”:
