Puregold highlights life ‘Nasa Iyo ang Panalo' Stories


Puregold rings in its twenty-fifth year in the retail industry with one important goal: to highlight life ‘Panalo Stories’ of its customers— Filipinos across the country. 

 

Puregold begins by telling the tales of triumph of six sought-after personalities in the fields of entertainment, music, and sports. The supermarket retail chain announced its partnership with these endorsers through a campaign called “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo”. Featuring videos that reveal the journeys these individuals took to get to where they are right now, it singularly conveys an important message: that all Filipinos can win in life, too.  

 

Vincent Co, President of Puregold Price Club, Inc., says, “Our success would not have been possible without our customers, who have been with us all these years. As we look forward to our 25th year, we aim to show our appreciation through inspiring Panalo Stories, in the hope that Filipinos will see how success is possible for them as well.” 


Puregold’s “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” features the success story of Justin de Dios, sub-vocalist and creative lead of Filipino boy group SB19


Puregold’s “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” tells the story of Justin de Dios, popularly known as “Justin,” the sub-vocalist and creative lead of Filipino boy band SB19. A singer, rapper, and actor, Justin once doubted that he could achieve recognition for his musical talent, but with sheer determination, he has become a shining star in Philippine Pop. 

 

May panahong walang gustong makinig sa’kin; mga panahong gusto ko nang sumuko. Pero hindi ako nagpatalo,” he shares in his Puregold video, which has already garnered 3.9 million views to date, a testament to how many people listen to and believe in him now. 


Francine Diaz, actress, model, and endorser shares how she overcame challenges in her life and reached her status as a rising star in her “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” video


A beautiful face with stellar talent, as we have seen in the many teleseryes that she has starred in, Francine Diaz reveals a life that was filled with struggle. In her “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” video, she gives us a glimpse of how much she has been through. “May mga iniyakan, pero mas marami akong nilabanan. Ang pagpursigi ko, walang cut, dahil alam kong nasa akin ang panalo.”

 With her family as Francine’s inspiration, the young breadwinner worked hard to become who she is today—a gifted actress with fans who adore her, as well as projects and endorsements lined up for her to take. 

Also featured in Puregold’s “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” is celebrity couple Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola, both big names in the local entertainment industry even before their paths crossed. 

 

In their video, the soon-to-be first-time parents profess how their love is their biggest victory, and how their partnership has led them to believe that they will win every battle they may face. “Hindi mo kailangang maging mag-isa,” the couple discloses. “May kasama kang sasalubong sa kahit anong ibigay ng tadhana.” 

Queenay Mercado, Tiktok celebrity, influencer, and actress, shows how proud and thankful she is of where she came from in her Puregold video

Conquering Tiktok, arguably the most popular social media platform of this generation, influencer, actress, and “Reyna Batangueña of the Tiktokverse” Queenay Mercado, also has a success story to share. 

Now with over 12 million followers on Tiktok, Queenay, through her videos, took pride in her beginnings, which catapulted her into virality. Still, Queenay remains true to her roots. As she says in her “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” video, “Isang maliit na boses mula sa malayo . . . ipinagmalaki ko at ipinarating sa buong bansa, at sa ibang parte ng mundo.”



EJ Obiena, a winner not just for himself but for the Philippines, shares an inspiringinspiring tale of grit and hard work as a highly-esteemed athlete in his “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo” video


With another inspiring tale of hard work and perseverance, pole vaulter and record-holder EJ Obiena completes the six successful individuals featured in “Nasa Iyo ang Panalo”. 

 

EJ’s grit and determination led him to his status as the highly esteemed athlete he is today. He continues to compete and bring success not just to himself, but also to the Philippines. He says in his video, “Sugod lang hanggang tuktok, dahil kahit anong mangyari, alam kong nasa akin ang panalo.” 

Puregold customers and followers of its digital channels can watch for more Panalo Stories from these personalities, and from ordinary Filipinos, as the retailer celebrates its 25th year. 

 

As Vincent affirms, “Puregold is honored to have this opportunity to encourage Filipinos to take hold of their destinies and begin their journeys towards their greatest aspirations. We hope that ‘Nasa Iyo ang Panalo’ communicates a very clear message: ‘Success— Panalo is in each and every one of us’.”

The French Film Festival brings to Manila a fresh selection of French and Filipino films at Greenbelt 3 Cinemas from October 22 to 30, 2022


As part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of France-Philippines diplomatic relations, the French Film Festival brings to Manila a fresh selection of French and Filipino films at Greenbelt 3 Cinemas from October 22 to 30, 2022. The curated movies are composed of current releases and new ones that came out in the last two years. 

Award-winning and accomplished French actress Isabelle Huppert and French actor Lucas Bravo who became popular for his portrayal of Gabriel in the hit Netflix series Emily in Paris engaged moviegoers, fans, and the media in a brief interview about their movies that were screened for the festival.  Huppert and Bravo are part of the cast of Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris by Anthony Fabian. About Joan by Laurent Larivière and Promises by Thomas Kruithof are the two most recent films starring Huppert. She is also the main actress in Brillante Mendoza’s Captive.  

Filipinos and the French share a passion for moving images. Soon after the Lumière brothers invented cinema, Pathé projectors found their way to the Philippine islands and soon enough Filipinos were making films already. The French Film Festival has been bringing some of the most critically acclaimed and crowd pleasers to the discerning Filipino audience in search of movies that look into social issues, family values, and beautiful scenery that are close to the heart.

 

Opening the festival, Eiffel by Director Martin Bourboulon recounts the building of the Eiffel Tower inspired by a love story. The selection includes Lost Illusions by Xavier Gianolli, Farewell Mr. Haffmann by Fred Cavayé, set in Paris during World War 2, Notre Dame on Fire by Jean-Jacques Anneaud about the incident that damaged another historical monument in the center of Paris, Him by Guillaume Canet on the life of a music composer, Paris Memories, remembering Paris under terrorist attacks, a sequel to the popular French agent OSS 117: From Africa with Love. Rise by Cédric Klapisch tells an inspiring story about a ballet dancer.

 

The French Film Festival is also the event that brings together France and the Philippines with the screening of Filipino films that have gained recognition by the French audience. Like On the Job by Erik Matti which was shown in the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes. OTJ Missing 8 will be screening also in the festival.

 

In the height of the pandemic, Director Sigrid Bernardo flew to Paris with actors and crew to shoot Walang Kaparis, produced by Piolo Pascual. While the film is still in post-production, it paves the way toward co-productions between France and the Philippines. 

 

The Film Development Council of the Philippines under the Chairmanship of Tirso Cruz III will strive to work toward the signing of a co-production agreement between France and the Philippines that will open more opportunities for collaboration between filmmakers and more French and Filipino movies in the near future.

The Ransom Collective officially reveals their much-anticipated comeback single this 2022 called “3 AM”

Today, indie-folk band The Ransom Collective officially reveals their much-anticipated comeback single this 2022 called “3 AM” and it’s their first song release in over three years.

 

The six-piece band is still the fun and warm musicians their fans used to love. Composed of Kian Ransom (main vocals, guitar), Redd Claudio (drums), Jermaine Choa Peck (percussions, vocals), Leah Halili (bass, vocals), Lily Gonzales (keyboards, vocals), and Muriel Gonzales (violin, vocals), TRC remained solid in spite of being apart for the past few years since some of them decided to stay out of the country.

 

According to the group, the song is a story that outlines a journey from resistance to acceptance. It touches on the struggles of letting go and the triumph and growth that eventually come out of the process. (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO HERE)

 

It’s about learning to accept the harsh realities of life with less resistance and benefit from the peace and clarity that comes with it, according to Kian, who happens to be the songwriter of “3 AM.”

 

“Personally, I've struggled with trying to force things into being what I want or hope for them to be, rather than accepting things for what they really are. It's easy to develop tunnel vision and not realize that blind spots are being developed. The more resistant I am, the more entrenched I become, and eventually it blows up. Recently, through a mix of experiences, I became aware of this pattern and am learning to be more honest and vulnerable with myself and others,” he states.


The album artwork design was also their idea and it was made from different artsy paper cut outs.

 

The band admitted that although it was reworked several times, they enjoyed the whole recording process of this catchy track since they “found a direction they really liked.” In fact, “3 AM” is their “most heavily tracked song yet”, Redd and Jermaine recalled during the quick yet fun IG live midnight salubong for its release. There’s just a lot of elements to hear and feel here.

 

Anchored by a vigorous vibe plus a feel-good groove, the additional horn section added a whole new spice to the song’s overall sound, of course, with the help of song producers Mikey Amistoso and Marco De Leon.

 

As for their followers, expect “3 AM” to be just as anthemic as their previous hits. TRC also plans to finally dust themselves off, reunite, and play live shows again in the Metro hopefully next year. “We just wanted to have fun again, just enjoy making music,” Jerms gleefully shares.

 

“3 AM” is now out on all digital platforms under Mustard Music, a Universal Records Philippines sub-label and is part of New Music Friday Philippines playlist on Spotify for this week
