"Face it, I'm hotter than you"

"Face it, I'm hotter than you" - Jacob Black to Edward Cullen from Eclipse

This line from Eclipse burst the audience into laughter. I admit, I am not really good in reading novels. But I've been watching Twilight since it started. The first-two installments were not really my taste but Eclipse caught my attention. Maybe because the conclusion is near. You will know how the story goes as soon as you finished reading the book. As Bella's relationship to Edward went into struggle, and for Jacob's confession of love didn't make it through the end. Still, Bella has a choice to make.

I understand that the highlight of this movie was their struggle against the newborns, as Victoria is seen observing the battle. Jacob was hurt during the battle and struggling to accept that Bella chose Edward. He will wait for Bella.

As Bella and Edward starts planning for their wedding. One thing that Edward fears is -- How they will tell Charlie. (That's funny).

I am not really…

This is not a KARATE, it's KUNG FU

The Karate Kid (2010)

I've  been a great fan of The Karate Kid when I was young. Since then when I learned that the movie has a remake, I extremely believe it'll be more different on the first ones. This is not a continuation but rather an another story of a youngster, Dre, when his life were completely changed when he and his mother migrated to China. There was set the cultural differences, and adjustments. Soon, found a friend, Mr Han who secretely taught him Kung Fu played by Jackie Chan. The trainings went through was so different compared to other versions. Mr Han first trained Dre to focus and discipline. That "Jacket on, Jacket off" was a big blast. Dre didn't even knew that he was already in his training.

A tournament fight was agreed when Mr Han told Chen's trainor that if Dre won, then, the kids won't bully him anymore.

A winning stunt of 'cobra' made the fight finished with victory. I was really amazed with that style since Dre saw that la…

My PRECIOUS Time with Mr Ultimate Piolo

Sun Life: It's Time Advocacy
Sofitel Philippine Plaza

(sorry if there are inconsistencies, i'll review it tomorrow rather later. am so sleepy....enjoy reading!)

The moment I received the email that there'll be a presscon for Sun Life introducing Piolo and his new advocacy. I immediately contacted the person in charge - many thanks Sun Life and Ms Tara :) for allowing us to attend the presscon.

We arrived a little bit earlier. They said the presscon will start at 4:30pm. As we started eating and chatting, then Piolo arrived.

There was a small introduction on what was the advocacy is all about. Later on, the TVC was shown (btw, while waiting, the BTS of the TVC was presented too). Formally, Sun Life announced the :It's Time dvocacy. It's basically more of promoting financial literacy and how Filipinos will prepare for their future.

An opportunity of 10-minute face-to-face question and answer was held.

As a blogger, I don't want to pressure him anymore. He …




Running enthusiast and latest Sun Life Financial advocate Piolo Pascual rediscovers the charms of old Manila and a piece of Sun Life Financial Philippines (SLFP) history in a heart-thumping and edgy new TVC.

Inspiring Filipinos to take charge of their finances in order to protect their dreams, Pascual gives a personal take to Sun Life’s It’s Time! advocacy, the first advocacy of its kind in the Philippines to promote financial literacy and preparedness among Filipinos .

No guarantees

Shot near an old Binondo building that used to house Sun Life’s operations, the TVC shows how a harmless night can turn into a life-changing moment. It features Piolo in tip top shape, depicting a metaphor of life where anything can happen to us even at the top of our game, and the best you can do is to be prepared.

“The message of the TVC is beautiful and profound.  We all have to realize that life offers no guarantees so we must always be prepared and p…

Piolo: A Financial Monologue

Piolo: A Financial Monologue

There is no fool’s gold beneath the surface of Piolo’s beliefs and values. Behind the disarmingly handsome face is a man who knows how to protect his dreams and priorities. In between the hectic schedule are charity works, sports, and his undying love for family.

The same can be said on how he handles his finances – smart, delicate, and purposeful. And as the latest addition to Sun Life Financial’s “It’s Time!” financial literacy advocacy, he is ready to impart the message of a bright and stable future.

On Money

My mother showed me the best attitude towards money, which is humility. She also taught me to use money to do good things. My faith also gave me a great foothold on my finances. Much has been given to me, and it is only right that I give something in return.

On Financial Planning

You have to know what is important to you, and starting early is the way to go. In fact, the life insurance I got for my son Iñigo has already matured. Now his future is secure,…

It’s Time! to protect your dreams

It’s Time! to protect your dreams

Providing a secure and stable future for our loved ones is always in the minds of Filipinos. Fortunately, the resilience of Filipinos makes them adjust to whatever life throws their way. Fresh from the recent elections, we see this optimism again in many who are hopeful that everything will get better and that we can look forward to a brighter future.

One with the nation in this hope for a brighter future is Sun Life Financial.  Last year, Sun Life Financial launched the first financial literacy advocacy of its kind called It’s Time!.  It’s Time! is Sun Life’s advocacy designed to improve the financial literacy and preparedness of Filipinos. Today, It’s Time! celebrates its first anniversary and  in just one year, the advocacy has compelled many new advocates to take action and assume a more active role when it comes to planning for their financial needs.

Since the advocacy was launched, Sun Life has brought together more advocates sharing inspiring stor…
