For Garth, it’s not a Nay, but a Yes in LA!


Since he left for the US three years ago and now based in the US, particularly in Los Angeles, Garth Garcia has been conquering the music scene. His commitment, dedication, and love for his craft have been paying off as he continues to shine abroad.

Garcia will release his new single Walang Mapapala featuring Geca in the first week of February this year.

Also, he will have a show with Carol Banawa and Stephen Speaks in San Francisco on February 8, while a post-birthday and a pre-Valentine solo show is also set on February 9.

A show in Florida with Jed Madela, Carol Banawa, and Jej Vinson on May 30 is also in his schedule.

Garcia, with his recognitions here in the Philippines–MOR101.9 Best New Artist in 2014 and New Male Recording Artist of the Year at the PMPC Star Awards for Music 2015, has propelled him to do better and expand his horizons.

It was an honor for him to sang along with Geneva Cruz, Dessa, Jessica Sanchez, KZ Tandingan, Aegis, Sheryn Regis, and Jed Madela.

As an artist, he takes pride in some of the recognitions he earned like the Asian Excellence Awards 2016‘s Oustanding Recording Artist, Gawad Musika 2017‘s Best Male Recording Artist of the Year, and a WCOPA Multi Medalist.

He’s also the RNB Artist at the Spotlight Awards 2018 in Los Angeles. He’s the only Filipino nominated at Asians on Film Festival 2019 in Hollywood for Best Music Video.

Apart from performing, he recently established his own business with his wife, a limited liability company (LLC). The sole proprietorship’s name is Starlink Productions. His company has produced three Geneva Cruz shows as well as the Gazini Ganados’ Meet-and-Greet.

Farewell to the Excellent, Eddie Garcia!


Though I have not worked with late veteran and multi-awarded actor-filmmaker Eddie Garcia, I still admire his passion and dedication for his craft. Perhaps the closest encounter I had with him was when we covered the launch of one of his latest films with Globe Studios, Hintayan ng Langit in November last year.

I began to like him as an actor when he played comic roles in the sex-comedy flicks May Lamok sa Loob ng Kulambo and May Daga sa Labas ng Lungga (1984). The most memorable film that I enjoyed about him the film Erpat Kong Forgets (also in 1984), written by Jose Carreon and directed by Erastheo Navoa.

Garcia is seen with Muhlach in a hospital scene from the film ‘Erpat Kong Forgets’.

In the said film, Garcia was the father of Aga Muhlach‘s character as Ariel who fell in love with Janice de Belen‘s Josephine (the sister) of the Carmi Martin‘s role. He’s undeniably great in drama, comedy, and action. Whether he’s the protagonist and the antagonist, he is effective in both.

The tandem of Aga Muhlach and Janice de Belen was born through the film ‘Erpat Kong Forgets’.

Carmi Martin was Garcia’s love interest in ‘Erpat Kong Forgets’.

Apart from Hintayin Kita sa Langit, his two other latest award-winning films Rainbow Sunset and ML (Martial Law) were testaments of how exemplary he was. He was named 42nd Gawad Urian best actor for the latter film, given by the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (the Filipino Film Critics).

The cause of his death may not be something that the TV industry can take pride in. He met his fatal accident on the set of a taping for a series. He breathed his last breath on June 20, almost two weeks of fighting to survive. What is admirable about Garcia, he died working for his passion and never faltered on his commitment.

Rest in peace Eduardo Verchez Garcia (Born on 2 May 1929 – Died on 20 June 2019).

Piolo Pascual: Perfect Personality to endorse Pure Organic Barley Powder Drink


At 41, Piolo Jose Nonato Pascual or better known as PJ or Piolo in Philippine local industry is a film and television actor-singer-model-and producer—is just the perfect personality to represent IAM Worldwide’s Amazing Barley.

Pascual is perhaps the local counterpart of American actor-producer Brad Pitt. He’s oozing with those irresistible looks even with his age that could be comparable to a wine; he who has aged good and has gotten better (like how wine tastes better over the years); he gets even better reputation because of his achievements.

Staying as a sought-after personality is a challenge that Pascual has learned to embrace. Being part of the entertainment circuit, he has to keep himself in great shape by hitting the gym regularly as well as taking the needed supplements that his body needs. Even with his hectic schedules, he still manages to do some physical activities.

On December 3, at I’M Hotel in Makati, Piolo signed a contract with IMWORLDWIDE to seal his endorsement for Herb-all Amazing Pure Organic Barley.

The said health supplement drink is just one of the many products distributed by IAMWORLDWIDE and it is made from the purest Australian young Barley grass. It contains many health benefits such as strengthening the immune system, cleansing and detoxifying the body as well as regenerate damage cells and tissues. Such product is a reflection of what sort of countenance Pascual has.
