SANA ALL: On Wines, Passion, Love, and Heartaches

After the success of On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets; comes another love story starring Meg Imperial and Arvic Tan as the lead stars in Sana All.


Both Imperial and Tan are reunited in the said film, and this time as the lovers who have issues they need to come to terms with. Their paths crossed because of one passion and that is the intoxicating rice wine called Tapuey

From the story imagined by JF Fulgencio and a screenplay by Enrique Villasis–the two characters met in a chance encounter in La Union.


Meg plays Iyam, granddaughter of Lola Ingga (Lita Loresca), a renowned Tapuey-maker in the town of Adams.  Iyam is about to take over their rice wine business, but the drink that she makes doesn’t meet her grandma’s standards. Lola Ingga points out that it lacks an important ingredient, and that’s passion.


Arvic, on the other hand, plays Syd, a guy from Manila who, together with his friend Joan (Andrew Muhlach), is on a quest for the sweetest Tapuey. His search leads to Adams, where he meets Iyam for the second time. 


Since Lola Ingga knows that Iyam is capable of producing best-tasting Tapuey because she had done so in the past. Lola Ingga and her grandson Timo (Pio Balbuena), Iyam’s cousin, are convinced that Iyam will regain her passion for Tapuey-making if she falls in love. Together they hatch a plan without Iyam’s knowledge about it. 

Sana All, which was shot entirely in Adams, one of the scenic gems of Ilocos Norte will open in cinemas nationwide on March 25. It is directed by Bona Fajardo

Sheryn Regis soars high with an Upcoming Show!

The 40-year-old petite soprano from Carcar City, Cebu, Sheryn Regis is back in ferrying her brand of music through an upcoming show on February 28 with a  title: Back to Love – Shery Regis Live at the MusicMuseum.


Since her migration to the US, where she lives with her husband Earl Echeverri and her kid Lourdes in 2010 and after being cancer-free–the Crystal Voice of Asia is back to conquer the local music scene, again.

Her B.S. Secondary Education degree with a major in English came in handy as she teaches in Houston, Texas. On the side, she still manages to pursue her passion for singing as she gets some singing stints there.

Almost 10 years now, she’s now under new management with March On Entertainment Incorporated.  Prior to her show on the 28, Regis is set to perform tomorrow in Tallahasse, Florida. On Valentine’s Day, she has a show: Free to Love – Sheryn Regis Live in Winnipeg. Then, she’ll be in Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada for another show.

In her stay in the US, she has learned new vocal techniques and added a more global flair to her musical style; and she’s thrilled to share it with her fans in the Philippines.

She secured a place as a grand finalist in ABS-CBN’s reality singing competition Star in a Million (2003) after advancing from the elimination rounds with Teresa Garcia. Regis was a judge favorite and was the only finalist to never place in the bottom two during the entire season. Despite her hair-raising, distinctive tone, and melismatic timbre, she only placed as a runner-up to Erik Santos after singing Wendy Moten‘s Come in Out of the Rain

In May 2004, Regis officially launched her debut album under Star Records titled Come in Out of the Rain, produced by Jonathan Manahan. In the same year, popular songwriter Vehnee Saturno chose her to represent the Philippines in Voice of Asia in Kazakhstan. She sang Isang Lahi, Sana’y ‘Di Pangarap, Now More Than Ever, and Saturno’s original song Follow Your Dream. She went on to become the third Filipino to win the Two-Prize Silver Trophy after Jed Madela and Arnee Hidalgo

Sheryn did remake Joey Albert‘s I Remember the Boy as Jasmine‘s theme song for ABS-CBN’s teleserye featuring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson in Sana Maulit Muli. She also sang the theme song for Maria Flordeluna, and revived the popular Kuh Ledesma hit Dito Ba for the hit afternoon drama, Prinsesa ng Banyera.

Come February 28, witness again her voice with a velvety yet tart, with insistent flutter, and occasional reserves of soul.
