Saludo ang WHO
sa Project Unang
Yakap ng ‘Baby
factory’ ng Pinas
Ni Jocelyn R. Uy

TINUTURING ang “baby factory” ng
bansa bilang isang modelo para sa
programa ng World Health Organization (WHO) na nagtatampok sa pagdidikit ng mga ina sa mga bagongsilang na sanggol bilang paraan upang
mabawasan ang pagkamatay.
Umani ng papuri
mula sa WHO ang Dr.
Jose Fabella Memorial
Hospital ng pamahalaan sa Sta. Cruz,
Maynila, kilala sa napakataas na bilang ng
nagsisilang dito kada
araw, para sa mabisang pangunguna sa
programang “Unang
Yakap” noong 2008.
Sinabi ng Western Pacific Region Office ng
WHO na nasa Maynila
na ipakakalat nito ang
magandang ginagawa
ng Fabella sa iba pang
mga bansa na may
mataas na antas ng

pagkamatay ng sanggol, partikular sa Tsina, Vietnam, Cambodia, Papua New
Guinea, Laos, Mongolia at Solomon Islands.
Kasama ng Pilipinas ang pitong
bansang ito sa pinagmulan ng 97 porsyento ng mga nasawing
bagong-silang na sanggol at ina sa rehiyon.

isang panayam ng

May apat na hakbang sa ilalim ng

INQUIRER tilt winners
to fly to Cannes
By Miguel R. Camus

T

HE ROAD to Cannes, France, is clear for two
young marketers, who bested 13 others in a
Philippine Daily INQUIRER-backed contest to select the country’s representatives to the world’s most
prestigious advertising and communications awards
competition.
Ada Almendras and Ashley
Santillan of Golden Arches Development Corp., which operates fast-food giant McDonald’s
in the Philippines, won the honor on Feb. 7.
The participants were given

less than 24 hours to come up
with a campaign to strengthen
the INQUIRER brand while taking
into account the rapidly changing media landscape, as technology is constantly providing
new delivery platforms.

For defining the most clear,
creative and practical concept,
Almendras and Santillan will
carry the country’s flag and
compete with top talent from all
over the world at the Young Lions Marketers Competition during the 2015 Cannes Lions International Film Festival in June.
“This is the age of inquiry,
which is what the brand INQUIRER
stands for. So [for our concept]
we wanted everyone to be part of
the nation’s transformation and
be ‘inquirers’ themselves. Not just
to get information but to con-

tribute it as well,” Almendras said.
Both also highlighted the immense pressure in representing
the Philippines, which has produced several winners at the
Cannes Lions festival in previous years.
Alexandra Prieto-Romualdez,
INQUIRER chief executive officer
and president, said the judges
appreciated Almendras’ and
Santillan’s comprehensive and
practical pitch.
“That was the key... how to
sustain the campaign and showing that it wasn’t just a one-off,”
she said.
The Cannes Lions festival has
been running for over six
decades and is considered “the
world’s biggest celebration of
creativity.”
Named first runner-up on
Saturday were the team of Raymond Lagdameo and Samantha
Huang of Nestlé Philippines Inc.
Romualdez said the INQUIRER
will sponsor their registration

for the Spikes Asia competition
in Singapore in September.
The INQUIRER competition also drew participants from some
of the country’s biggest companies, including Bank of the
Philippine Islands, Johnson &
Johnson, Del Monte Philippines,
Smart Communications, Globe
Telecom, Universal Robina
Corp., PepsiCo, Peerless Products and Liwayway Marketing.
While the INQUIRER has been
the official representative body
to the Cannes Lions, this is the
first time the publication group
has provided “full sponsorship”
as costs in previous years were
shared with the Philippine Association of National Advertisers.
“We were encouraged to see
that we have such great talent
in the Philippines. We will continue to support this program
simply because of the wealth of
talent. You did not disappoint,”
Romualdez said in her remarks
to the participants.

A day at the Mansion with Gov Vi
By Dolly Anne Carvajal

Madonna hits
head during
performance

I

T’S always a delight to chat with Gov.
Vilma Santos. Her joie de vivre is contagious. My son, IC (Mendoza) and I,
along with the Captured Dream (CD) production team, visited Gov Vi at her Batangas Capitol office—referred to as the Mansion—last
Friday.
We went to “Ala Eh Country”
for the auditions of Miss Teen
Earth/Little Miss Earth. Being
the ever-gracious host, Ate Vi
had her staff prepare a sumptuous breakfast for us.
As soon as she arrived, it
was nonstop chikahan. It was
the first time for the CD production staff to have a close encounter with the Star for All
Seasons. Doubtless, they were
star-struck, but Ate Vi had such
an endearing way of making
anyone feel at home.
Kudos to Ate Vi for adding
another feather to her cap. She
was given an Award of Merit
(Special Mention) at the Indie
Fest Film Awards in California
for “Ekstra.”
Her acting prowess is definitely Hollywood-worthy. “I
miss acting,” she said. “When I
watch my colleagues in teleseryes, I feel envious. I tell myself, I can do that!”
Ate Vi is raring to shoot her
movie with Angel Locsin. “Angel will portray a caregiver and
I will be a cranky patient,” she
said. “It has the feel of ‘The
Devil Wears Prada.’ Our confrontation scenes are intense.”
Since Angel is Ate Vi’s possible daughter-in-law-to-be, their
screen jousting would be quite
engaging to watch.
Asked about raging national
issues, Ate Vi said, “It’s all about
team effort. We must all do our
part, no matter how small. Let’s
stop playing the blame game!”
It has been 18 years since
she joined government and Ate
Vi is still hands-on in her
province. “It’s not easy being a
lady leader in Barako Land,”
she admitted. “The trust that
the Batangueños have given me
is the best reward. When push
comes to shove, I can be barako
(macho), too.”
Due to her frenzied schedule,
she hardly has time to party. “I
was so thrilled to have a night

out in Valkyrie with (husband)
Ralph (Recto) and my family,”
she recalled. “I miss wearing
glamorous outfits. I am always
dressed like a governor.”
With that trademark genuine
warmth (which enveloped us
till the ride back home), Ate Vi
served us kapeng barako and
sinaing na tulingan.
Thank you, Ate Vi, for never
running out of ways to nurture
our friendship. Never enough
time with you, but always more
than enough love.

Lucky star
Luis Manzano is the sum of
the best parts of his dad, Edu
Manzano, and mom, Vilma
Santos. He got Ate Vi’s charisma
and Doods’ gift of gab. As host
of the fifth season of “Deal or
No Deal” (weekdays, 5 p.m.
ABS-CBN), Luis is in his element. Beyond being “Lucky.” his
talent has made him step out of
the shadow of his famous parents—and step up.
Here’s my tête-à-tête with
Luis:

What is the stage of your
relationship with Angel Locsin?
Stage of renewed love, with
the vision of settling down
within arm’s reach.
How has your relationship
with Angel improved the second time around?
We brought a whole new
[group of] “people” to the table.
Would you want your mom
to run for President?
Wherever her heart leads
her, I will be behind her.
What makes the new season of “Deal or No Deal” more
exciting?
The interaction with the
lucky stars. I can’t wait for the
regular players to join, too.
What’s your deal with Angel?
Forever.
What’s your deal with your
parents?
To be a good son. Hahaha!
Deal!

Belo in Time

LUIS Manzano

Belo Medical Group (BMG)
has once again gained global
recognition for its achievements
in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic dermatology. Time magazine
featured the clinic in the same
issue as the 2014 Person of the
Year: The Ebola Fighters.
The article named the Philip-

VILMA Santos
pines as “the rising star of beauty tourism,” a $3-billion industry.
The report noted that BMG
“received the Platinum award
from Allergen for being the
Philippines’ top performing
Botox treatment clinic for 10
consecutive years.
“My dream is to make the
Philippines a world-renowned
beauty destination,” says Dr.
Vicki Belo.
Indeed, the world is taking
notice, putting the country on
the map through Belo’s services.

Super fest
The theme of this year’s Super8 Grocery Warehouse fun
fest is “Buhay Bida, Buhay Pelikula,” an homage to Philippine
show biz.
I think the bida part is perfect since Super8 goes out of its
way to treat customers like
VIPs.
I heard that quite a number
of stars will make special appearances during the company’s
big event, from March 26 to 28,
at World Trade Center in Pasay.
Super-exciting!

Personal
Thanks to Ate Vi’s ever-dependable girl Friday Weng,
Maricel Desiatco and PJ
Khodiel for their kind assistance.

LONDON— Madonna says
she hit her head and suffered whiplash when she
was yanked backward down
some steps while performing
live at the Brit Awards.
The dramatic tumble occurred Wednesday as the
56-year-old sang “Living For
Love.”
Madonna’s dancers
tugged at her flowing Armani cape, but instead of
coming loose it dragged the
singer down three steps.
Madonna said the cape had
been tied too tightly at the
neck “and my two lovely
Japanese dancers basically
strangled me off the stage.”
She told Britain’s
“Jonathan Ross Show:” “I
had a little bit of a whiplash
and I smacked the back of
my head. So there was a
man standing over me with
a flashlight until about 3
a.m., making sure I was still
conscious.”
Extracts from the interview were released Friday.
At the concert scene,
Madonna is set to go on a
global tour to promote her
new album “Rebel Heart”
with a concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami
on Aug. 29, her promoters,
Live Nation, said on Monday.
The tour includes New
York, Boston, Chicago,
Philadelphia; Vancouver,
Canada; San Juan, Puerto
Rico; Cologne, London,
Paris, Barcelona and other
European cities. Australia
and Asia dates will be announced later.
In December demo tracks
from Rebel Heart, her 13th
studio album, were leaked
ahead of its release next
week. Madonna, 56, responded to the hacking by
releasing six tracks for purchase on iTunes. Inquirer

Fajardo may
not play in
PBA All-Star
By Musong R. Castillo
JUNE Mar Fajardo, the reigning
PBA MVP, is a doubtful starter
for the South team in the
league’s Annual All-Star Game
slated this Sunday in Puerto
Princesa, Palawan, after suffering a left ankle sprain Tuesday.
Fajardo twisted his left ankle
in the first quarter of San
Miguel Beer’s 102-91 victory
over Barako Bull that kept the
Beermen in the hunt for a playoff slot in the Commissioner’s
Cup at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“I don’t know if I can still
play (on Sunday),” Fajardo said
after the game. “It will all depend on the results of the Xrays (and magnetic resonance
imaging). If it’s still painful, I
won’t force it.
The 6-foot-10 San Miguel
cornerstone was voted to the
South’s starting lineup by fans
together with Greg Slaughter of
Barangay Ginebra, Asi Taulava
and James Yap and Marc Barroca of Purefoods.

Itutuon ng pambansang kamao ang pokus
sa pagpapakondisyon bilang paghahanda sa Super
Fight nila ni Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayo 2 (Martes sa
Maynila) sa MGM Grand sa Maynila.
Habang hindi pa dumarating
si Roach ay gigiyahan si Pacquiao ni strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune at assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez
sa Wild Card Gym sa Hollywood.
Bagamat mahusay ang
kondisyon ni Pacquiao na
maaaring pabilisin ang iskedyul
ng pagsasanay, nais ni Fortune
sundin ang programang inihatag ni Roach.

Nasa Macau sa kasalukuyan si
Roach upang tulungan si Chinese
superstar Zou Shimingna haharapin si Thai Amnat Ruenroeng
para sa titulong International Boxing Federation flyweight.
Gagawin ang sapakan Marso
7 at inaasahang babalik sa Los
Angeles si Roach sa Marso 8.
Sinimulan ni Pacquiao ang

PVF hindi uurungan POC ni Peping
ILIGAL, imoral at
labag sa batas. Ito
ang binatong mga
akusasyon ni sportsman-businessman at
Philippine Volleyball
Federation president
Edgardo Boy” Cantada laban sa Philippine
Olympic Committee
na pinamumunuan ni
Jose ‘‘Peping” Cojuangco.
Kasamang humarap ni Cantada sa
mga mamamahayag
kahapon sa Makati
City si overall project
director Dr. Rustico
‘‘Otie” Camangian,
deputy secretary-general Gerard Cantada
at legal counsel Atty.
Dexter Corpus.
Diniin ng
nakatatandang Cantada na nananatiling
ang PVF ang pambansang asosasyon ng
volleyball sa bansa
bagamat ayon sa POC

ay wala na ito at
pinalitan ng Larong
Volleyball sa Pilipinas
na pansamantalang
pinamumunuan ni
Joey Romasanta, bisepresidente ng POC at
matagal ng kaalyado
ni Cojuangco.
Dahil sa rekomendasyon ng POC ay
kinikilala ng International Volleyball Federation ang LVP.

Ngunit sinabi ni
Cantada na hindi sila
sinabihan ng POC
tungkol sa pagkawala
ng PVF.
‘‘The PVF is still the
national volleyball organization of the country,” sabi ni Cantada.
Ayon kay Cantada
labag sa kautusan ng
POC ang nangyari
sapagkat hindi dumaan sa General As-

sembly ang pagtanggal sa PVF.
‘‘POC is a fraternity
of sports associations.
This is not just a fight
for PVF but also for
NSAs. I ask that the
PVF be invited in its GA
so that we can give our
chance,” ani Cantada.
‘‘Coaches, teachers,
athletics directors.
These are our members,” ani Cantada.
