Coming from a trip in Palawan, I still managed to brave the jammed streets of Quezon City to Marikina Cit to witness the opening of Bacsi Bro’s outlet in Ayala Malls on Saturday, July 27 with Tony Labrusca as its brand ambassador. After he was launched as an endorser and a franchisee of a drink sometime last year, the star of Sino ang Maysala (Mea Culpa)?–Labrusca greeted the mall-goers, customers and his fans alike with his usual irresistible presence.
Just like the comfort food under Bacsi Bro’s, he maintained his stature as one of today’s most sought-after young male actors; especially after he did daring scenes with Angel Aquino in the 2018 iWant movie Glorious, which was written and directed by Connie Macatuno.
Apart from Tony’s appearance, the all-day breakfast served with rice and bread wraps shared the limelight with the hunky actor.
Labrusca admitted what he favored on the Bacsi Bro’s menu, “Syempre ma-rice ako na tao kaya gusto ko yung original na Bacsi Bro’s rice meal.”
Other variants of Bacsi Bro’s rice meals are: Bacsi Bro, Tapsi Bro, Toci Bro, Cornsi Bro, Chicksi Bro and Porksi Bro. While its Bacsi Bro’s wraps come in four–Bacsi Wrap, Cornsi Wrap, Hotsi Wrap and Tapsi Wrap.

MANILA, Philippines–Philiipines’ Comedy Queen, Ai-Ai delas Alas recently extends his contract as endorser with a non-intimidating insurance (for niche markets, such as small-and-medium entrepreneurs, farmers, fishermen, and public school teachers)–Country Bankers Life Insurance Corporation (CBLIC), held on Tuesday, February 27 at the Casino Español de Manila.
Delas Alas being an entrepreneur as well, she felt the need of having the type of insurance policy that CBLIC is offering; particularly in protecting properties today.

On May 17, athlete-singer-actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI), launched a series of vlogs (video blogs) at B Hotel in Quezon City. The vlogs aim to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.
To be financially free, it starts with a detailed plan and the willingness to commit to such plan. Though the vlogs, dubbed as ‘Make It Mutual’ with topics that are relevant to personal finance, such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly—are geared to empowering Filipinos to be wise in managing and growing their finances.
The vlogs were created for the viewer to easily relate these to real life situations, the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others. All videos will be shared via social media to make it readily accessible.
This is not the first time that Guiicelli did a financial literacy campaign for SLAMCI. It was in November 2015 when he also supported SLAMCI’s campaign against investment scams and was dubbed as ‘Slam the Scam’. He was glad to be part of it in helping people from getting victimized by scammers like the pyramid scams.
And being a policy holder of Sun Life, it has opened him to be wiser with his finances and where to invest his earnings. He said that with the insurance advisors he has now, “They give me insights on what to invest in and what not to invest in.”
Apart from the insurance policy he insured himself with, he also got Sun Life’s Prosperity Card, which was launched August last year. The card is an investment worth Php5,000, which may be invested in any of the peso-denominated mutual funds managed by SLAMCI under its Sun Life Prosperity Funds. The first-of-its-kind in the market, it has revolutionized mutual funds investing in the country.
“With the prosperity card, it earned me six percent (6%), It is a good start for high school students to start with or the millennial these days to start investing via this card.”
In Cebu, last year, he also opened his restaurant business called Trattoria da Gianni, which is located in Banilad, Cebu City.
The ‘Make It Mutual’ campaign is just the first of Sun Life’s series of financial literacy initiatives this year. According to Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa, more will be launched in the coming days as Sun Life rolls out its Financial Independence Month campaign in June.
