EVENT 1. March 15 - INAGAW NA BITUIN (originally titled KIDNAP)

STORYLINE: A drama musical starred by Kyline Alcantara and Therese Malvar directed by Mark A. Reyes.

A story started how Edward Sevilla ( Marvin Agustin) and Belinda Lopez-Sevilla (Sunshine Dizon) loss their child, Anna. After losing their own child they pour out their love & support to their niece named Ariela. Their real child Anna grow up as Elsa with Aurora dela Cruz (Angelu de Leon). But because both are inclined with MUSIC, their families will cross paths.


I had the privilege to question Kyline Alcantara, Therese Malvar and Manolo Pedrosa during the blogcon, though it is not connected with the drama but still I ask their personal thoughts about HOW THEY DEAL WITH THEIR STALKERS and HOW THEY MOTIVATE THEMSELVES IF THEY FEEL LOW-ESTEEM or HAVING DEPRESSION.

Since millennials now are the called the GENERATION SNOWFLAKE or SNOWFLAKE GENERATION more prone to taking offence and having less psychological resilience compared with the previous generations, being too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own.

They all both answered that they don't mind their stalkers/online bashers, though some are helpful but they are extra careful in any way.

Regarding motivation, they have their family and friends and with prayers it helped them boost their self-esteem to get up and work.

At their young age, friends will become more important to them, but parents should always there to guide them because they still learning. We need to teach them positively, accept and support them, for those are important part of the journey to adulthood. 


After the blogcon, they proceeded to an afternoon full of fun and kilig at Kapuso Mall Show held at Gaisano Mall Toril in Davao City.

And yesterday, March 16, they joined the Kapuso Float and tour the streets of Davao City for the Parada Davaoeña.

STORYLINE: A drama fantasy series lead by Barbie Forteza and Mika Dela Cruz.

KARA MIA are two faces in a single body, where Kara (Barbie) and Mia (Mika) in the back of Kara. Once they discover that they can separate their face with its own body every morning and back to original form at night a twist of story can entized the mind of the viewers. Sound interesting, isn't it?


I also ask them their personal thoughts regarding HOW THEY DEAL WITH ONLINE BASHERS and if they agree to the theory that BAD PUBLICITY is A GOOD PUBLICITY

Award-winning Kapuso actresses Barbie Forteza and Mika dela Cruz, who banner the newly launched primetime show Kara Mia, joined by their leading men Jak Roberto and Paul Salas 

They have different views about dealing with online bashers, but the only common thing they've said is that they LOVE IT how it goes even it's negative or positive. They are overwhelmed with what happened with the KARA MIA memes and they all appreciated it.

And about publicity, they all agree that even they're saying awful things about them, publicity is publicity.

They are all artists and they belong to PUBLIC INTEREST. For the parents of these teens, I salute your dedication to your children. Continue to guide them well and to safeguard their private lives to public interests.
