NA-SHOCK ang netizens ng supposedly ay magregalo nang super expensive na rubber shoes si Nadine Lustre sa boyfriend niyang si james Reid during his last birthday.
Natigalgal daw talaga ang mga kaibigan ng young actress nang malaman ang halaga ng rubber shoes.
Say ng amigas ni Nadine, huwag raw pamimihasain si James at baka siya rin ang magsisi.
CHAVIT SINGSON’S KINGDOM
Upon Ms. Aster Amoyo’s invitation, we went to Vigan and visited former Governor Chavit Singson’s kingdom.
Honestly, it was an awe-inspiring experience.
His mansion, along with his numerous business enterprise that he has painstakingly built for the past 28 years, happen to be perfectly impressive.
Anyway, Governor Chavit, as he seems to be perpetually called in the province of Ilocos Sur, takes pride in presenting to the press Baluarte – an interactive wildlife sanctuary that he designed and developed to preserve the heritage of their province.
It is also Gov. Chavit’s main concern to educate the people and conserve and protect the endangered species.
“Actually, what inspired me to put up this zoo is my haunting hobby,” the great man asseverates. “For years, I’ve been travelling the world for this purpose. I was able to reach countries as far as South Africa, Zimbabwe, Australia, Sweden and New Zealand.
“From each destination, I brought home beautiful souvenirs like elephant, buffalo, rhino, lions, etc.
“I had all these animals shipped to Baluarte so that Filipinos who can’t afford to visit said countries will see them in the flesh for free.”
Anyway, Baluarte is becoming more interesting since it was first built.
“Oh, yes! when I finished my term as Ilocos Sur governor, I had more time to travel and hunt so, more animals were added in here.
“They surely provide more excitement and funfare to the place and that’s my goal – for Baluarte to become the ultimate fauna spot in the country.”
Actually, Baluarte is one of the main reasons why Governor Chavit has embarked on a new business venture and that is hosting a TV program called Happy Life.
“In this show,” he asseverates, “deserving beneficiaries will be given the chance to travel while surprise gifts await them when they reach their journey’s end… like a house and lot.
“Yes, we will search for a donor if we cannot find one, I will provide the prize myself.
“Through this program, we also want to give a fresh start to hardworking individuals and organizations.
“My team is actually making the rounds in various parts of the country to shoot lovely tourist spots.
“The show has a good concept and I’m just making negotiations as to which network we would air it.
“For those who doesn’t know yet, my maiden political ambition was running as councilor for Vigan. This time though, I just wanted to help this small town shine and realize its huge potential.
“I went to Narvacan on purpose since it’s the only town that boasts of a big budget but hasn’t shown any progress.
“Imagine, among Ilocos Sur’s 32 municipalities, Narvacan is the only one which doesn’t have new municipal buildings and market and yet, it’s the biggest beneficiary of Republic Act 7171 which I authored.”
For the parting shot, we asked the still bursting with machismo Ilocos Sur’s pillar formula for success.
“I’m a positive person,” he articulates. “I always stick to what I’ve said. I keep my words. Credibility is very important to me. I’m also dedicated in everything I do. I credit my parents for letting me grow up with principle and dignity.”
Very well said indeed.
Anyway, Madam Aster Amoyo’s exclusive interview with the great man Chavit Singson is going to get aired on Saturday, August 6, 9am to 10 pm on Gandang Ricky Reyes’s Showbiz Express on GMA News TV.
