I thought I knew a good graduation speech until I saw Jim Carrey riff on love, consciousness and purpose

Risk being seen.

Such a powerful line that I can challenge myself too in the coming days.

Yes, I am writing a love story which I envision to be a novel and a film, someday. 🙂

Let me also quote Oprah Winfrey with her words: “What I know for sure is that if you want success, you can’t make success your goal. The key is not to worry about being successful, but to instead work toward being significant, and the success will naturally follow.”

Sarah Geronimo, Coco Martin in ‘Maybe This Time’

Star Cinema brings together onscreen the newest tandem that perhaps Filipino movie fans would go gaga—Sarah Geronimo, the youngest coach ever among all ‘The Voice’ franchises in the world, will breathe into the character of Stephanie Asuncion who was once in love with Coco Martin’s role—Antonio Bugayong in the film ‘Maybe This Time’.


The paths of Stephanie and Antonio crossed again after time has parted them. Antonio left without saying goodbye to Stephanie when their love started to blossom and was heart-broken. The once simple young girl is now a career woman will be tested with her feelings toward Antonio, the ambitious guy who had board a ship to support his family’s furniture business and now involved with another woman named Monica T. Valencia, portrayed by Ruffa Gutierrez.

This is a story between two people who will be reminded about the importance of being true to one’s self in order for true love to happen. And if they won’t, what would be the consequences of such actions and decisions?

The film is predicted to be another blockbuster since casting Geronimo, a 2013 GMMSF Box-Office Entertainment Awardee for Box-Office Queen and Martin, the 12th Gawad Tanglaw Awards Best Actor in a TV Series for ‘Juan Dela Cruz’ are proven to have strong following and box-office statuses.

Jerry Lopez Sineneng directs this momentous film and will open on May 28 in cinemas nationwide.

Watch the trailer of the film.
