Reel Love Teams for Real Leaf Green Tea

Thanks to the PR group of Coke-Real Leaf  for inviting me to the grand launch of their newest tea drink ambassadors. The banquet/ presscon was held at White Space last December 7. They made sure all of us enjoyed the 3 flavors of Real Leaf (Honey Lemon, Honey Apple and Honey Lychee… Lemon is my favorite!) with bibingka, puto bungbong, bijon guisado, barbecue and roasted chicken!

festive food + healthy drink

And more than the food, we all enjoyed meeting the 4 newest endorsers of Real Leaf Green Tea! 😀 It’s not everyday that stars fall down from the sky! Or travel to a presscon in Makati from ABS-CBN 2 and GMA 7. Hahaha! :p

Congratulations to Real Leaf for getting 2 of the most celebrated love teams in pinoy showbiz—

Piolo Pascual and KC Concepcion and Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera!

A Coke exec and the love teams signed giant Real Leaf bottles as symbol of their commitment to promoting its goodness. Real leaf has real honey, and did you know that it helps boost immunity? It’s also made of real green tea that has Theanine which helps improves mood and reduces physical and mental stress.

I discovered those fantastic facts from Real Leaf’s interactive corner.

The 4 answered the questions of the press with full enthusiasm. Epekto malamang ng Theanine!



My height is 5’6″ but I looked like a smurf next to the tall and dashing Papa P and the gorgeous KC Concepcion in skyhigh heels.

And, I looked like a negrita next to Marian. :p

For those who are curious who among them was the nicest in person, hands down, it’s KC Concepcion. She’s sweet and accomodating. I wanted to have my picture taken with her (so I can show my parents and pamangkins) and one of the p.a.’s said no more na daw. KC told the p.a. that we still haven’t had our picture taken. O di’ba? 🙂

Marian was the most energetic when it came to answering  the press. Mukhang support sa ladies ang naging dating ni Papa P and Dingdong. :p Nakakamesmerize ang kagwapuhan nila. 😀


Thanks to Jeman of for the last 2 pics!

Allegro Krumping Imposible Symphony

I am addicted to Vanessa Mae’s take on Vivaldi’s Allegro (The Original Four Seasons Op. 8, No. 1, Spring). I especially love the consecutive slamming of the doors after the maniacal martelĂ© of the violin.

Nelly and Fergie’s Party People makes me want to learn how to krump and strike à la Stomp the Yard. I need a Chris Brown to teach me.

I have my second cousin, Miki to thank for my rediscovery of Papa Roach. Scars is on repeat mode in my mind. My weakness is that I care too much And my scars remind me that the past is real…

Sorry, Perez. I love you, but I just can’t abandon Team Miley. It’s not that I hate Selena. It’s just that don’t like her for the cutest Jonas brother. Plus, I don’t think Miley is a slut. She’s just errrmmm… socially advanced. Give the girl 2 more years.

So bite me. I watch ABS-CBN’s newest teleserye, Iisa Pa Lamang almost every night.  It reminds me of my favorite Maricel Soriano classic, Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa. Whaaaaat? I was nicknamed by my parents Little Taray Queen after Maricel in the 80’s.

I miss good old Saturday morning cartoons. 😩 Smurfs! Carebears! Rainbow Brite! Glow Worms! Pound Puppies! She-raaaaaaaaa!!! Waaaah! I miss getting my kiddie audiovisual fix while making papak a bowlful of Milo powder with miniature marshmallows.

I don’t know why a lot of people (exempli gratia, my applicants from job fairs and my cousin Maf, hehe) have Imposible as their ringback. I found it hard to believe when Maf told me it was KC Concepcion who sang it Imposible. I thought, “She covered Rivermaya’s hit? That’s just soooo wrong.” Wrong nga. Posible pala ‘yun. Hehe.

If asked what’s my favorite movie, I answer Sister Act in a heartbeat. Color? Green (always comes with a short explanation why red became the 2nd favorite). Song? Crazy for You. Well not anymore! My numero uno now is my Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve I’ve always liked it, but now it’s more than a song. It’s a life story.

Yes. I like re-engineered classical music, dancing and movies about it, Hannah Montana, The Disney Channel, and select Tagalog drama series. I am in touch with the kid and the bitch within.

I am here in my mold
But I’m a million different people
from one day to the next…
