Anne Curtis surprises street workers with cash gift from ‘It’s Showtime’

Actress Anne Curtis expressed her gratitude to her “It’s Showtime” family for letting her experience helping other people through the pot money they collected in the show’s “Vest in Spelling” segment.

Anne was tasked to do random acts of kindness and share the P32,400 pot money from the program, which she gave away to four street workers – two junk collectors, a balloon vendor, and a fish vendor – in Mandaluyong and Makati. Each received P8,100.

“I was really looking for people who are really striving hard for a living. Tingin ko kasi, silang yung talagang deserving, ‘yung nakikita mong nagtatrabaho,” she said.

She added that she was touched to hear that these people are working hard in order to provide for their family.

“Tapos ang nag-ano pa sa akin, ‘yung aalamin mo ‘yung kwento nila kung bakit magdamag sila sa arawan… Talagang ang sarap sa feeling na malaman mong makakatulong ka sa kapwa mong Pilipino tapos makakauwi na sila sa pamilya pagkatapos. [Sabi nga nila,] ‘Ay salamat makakauwi na kami,’” she said; adding that the fish vendor was still waiting to sell two pieces of fish at noon time.

“Dalawang isda na lang ‘yung hinihintay niyang mabenta tapos tanghali na. Usually, ‘di ba pag palengke ang alam ko, tanghali dapat tapos na.”

Vice Ganda added that being exposed to other people’s lives is an eye opener for them. “At saka yung minumulat ‘yung mata mo sa nangyayari sa pangkaraniwang Pilipino sa labas ng bahay mo,” Vice said.

Anne said this is why she is thankful to be given the opportunity to share their blessings.

“Sobra akong happy. All of them were telling me na ‘yung kinikita nila was for their family, mga apo, mga anak kaya nakakatuwa na maka-experience ng ganito. Kaya maraming salamat, ‘Showtime’ family, for giving me this opportunity.”

‘Please pray for me’: Sunshine Dizon humingi ng panalangin habang nagpapagaling

Humihingi ng panalangin ang aktres na si Sunshine Dizon na kasalukuyang naka-confine sa ospital.

Sa isang Instagram post ay nagbahagi si Sunshine ng selfie dahil gusto niya raw pagaanin ang kaniyang loob sa kabila ng kaniyang pinagdaraanan.

“So this is my best effort to look cute and feel my rays of sunshine to uplift my spirits. So far thank God it’s not covid. Again I tested NEGATIVE FOR COVID. So far what my Pulmo is saying is Bronchitis,” ani Sunshine.

“I know prayers work wonders so please pray for me and everyone you know battling something.”

Bukod sa bronchitis ay inamin ng aktres na nakikipaglaban din siya sa ilang mental health issues gaya ng PTSD, depression, at iba pang issues.

“You may ask why now? Only because I want to free myself from the stigma. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. I know it’s very hard to get stuck in your head. But we can do it, baby steps. One day at a time.”

Bago ito ay naglabas siya ng saloobin tungkol sa mga napagtanto niya habang mag-isa sa ospital. Aniya, may mga taong gagawin ang lahat para lang makasama siya habang mayroon din namang ibang bibigyan lang siya ng mga palusot.

“Realizations, some people will love you enough to move mountains just to be with you, and some will have lame excuses because you are not and will never be their priority,” pahayag pa niya.

“I’m turning 40 next year. I have so many regrets but I don’t know how to go back to where I used to be. This not about work, this is about life altering decisions. Laying in a hospital bed alone at 3am, I ask myself was it all really worth it? I may never know the answers but I pray to God that I can let go of all my baggage, hurt and guilt. Finally find someone who will sleep beside me in this small hospital bed till I fall asleep.”

Nagbahagi ng sweet na birthday message ang aktor na si Luis Manzano para sa kaniyang asawang si Jessy Mendiola na malapit nang magsilang ng kanilang unang anak.

“Happy happy birthday to my howhow @jessymendiola I know what you go thru every day isn’t easy but Peanut and I appreciate everything you do for us. We love you Mama! Happy birthday, wake up na,” sabi ni Luis sa isang Instagram post.

Sa isang vlog kung saan sinagot nila ang mga katanungan tungkol sa pagiging bagong mga magulang ay inamin ni Jessy na noong una ay nahirapan siyang tanggapin ang mga pagbabago sa kaniyang katawan.

“Ako kasi I don’t feel like myself anymore. Kumbaga dati, may abs ako. Tas naka swimsuit pa ako lagi… Sa mga expectant mommies tulad ko, and sa mga nagbabalak magbuntis, hindi madali tanggapin sa simula na magbabago katawan mo mas lalo kung you were very active before the pregnancy or talagang ang tigas ng abs mo, liit ng waist mo,” sabi ng aktres.

“But as months go by, ‘pag nakikita mo na lumalaki yung tiyan mo, dun mo maiisip na it’s all worth it kasi you’re carrying a human inside of you and mas lalo na’ pag lumabas na ‘yun.”

Siniguro naman ni Luis kay Jessy na kahit magkaroon ng pagbabago sa kaniyang katawan kapag nanganak na siya ay mananatili siyang “hot” sa paningin nito.

Payo niya rin sa mga magiging ama na: “Congratulations na magiging tatay ka na but never forget that you are a husband first and foremost, you’re a partner first and foremost.”

Kapag dumating daw na lumaki at magkaroon na ng sariling buhay ang kanilang anak ay babalik at babalik sila sa pagiging partner sa kanilang asawa.

“Kung saka-sakali man ang anak mo ang lumaki na, kailangang mag-ibang bansa or anything. Ang maiiwan diyan, kayong dalawa pa rin. Never forget at the end of the day na you will always fall back to being a husband and being a partner so never lose that relationship.”

KZ Tandingan pens emotional message to mom who became a Registered Nurse at 56

Published

Singer KZ Tandingan is one proud daughter to her 56-year-old mom who recently took and passed the nurse licensure examination (NLE).

In a lengthy post on Facebook, KZ looked back on the sacrifices her mom Marites Tandingan, had to make along the way because she prioritized her children over her career.

Her mom got her license as a midwife at 18 years old and became a clinical instructor soon after. She then met KZ’s dad and they got married and had children.

“She attempted to balance being a mom and working, but in the end she made the decision to abandon the career she had fought so hard to achieve in order to concentrate on caring for her children,” KZ said.

When she and her sister were already in high school, her mom decided to pursue nursing. She later found out she was pregnant with her third child and after trying to make it work, she decided to put it on hold to focus on her pregnancy.

“When I finally went to college, my brother had already turned three yrs old, Mum continued her education attending classes on weekends till she received her diploma,” KZ narrated.

“At 43 or 44 yrs old, she tried taking the NLE without a proper review because there was just too much on her plate, and sadly she didn’t pass. She was so heartbroken that she thought maybe she’s too old or that she didn’t have what it took anymore.”

But about 10 years later, Marites decided to try again. For months, she focused on reviewing discreetly.

“Only the family knew abt it because she didn’t want people to be disappointed just in case she didn’t pass it again. She would study so hard that she’d fall asleep while reading her books and sometimes forget to take a break to eat,” she said.

“Today, 18 days after, the results came out, and I’m so proud to share that my mom, 56 yrs old, MARITES LOBRIGAS TANDINGAN is now a REGISTERED NURSE.”

KZ thanked her mom for sacrificing her career to prioritize her children’s well-being.

“Today is a reminder that God sees everything and that He rewards His children in His perfect time. Congratulations Mommy Tess! I’m so proud of you. I love you.”
