Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista was thrilled to spend the weekend with the Kapuso abroad in the United Kingdom via the Summer Filipino Festival.

Held last August 3 and 4 at Lancing Beach Green in West Sussex, Christian serenaded the Kapuso abroad with timeless hits like “The Way You Look at Me” and “Ligaya” by Eraserheads. The entire crowd sang along beautifully that the Kapuso star decided to come down from the stage to join them.

The two-day event was made even merrier when Christian had an exclusive meet and greet with all the attendees. He also signed the record albums brought by his Pinoy fans. After bonding with the Kapuso abroad, he headed to West End, London to watch Hamilton. Backstage, Christian met his fellow singer and international musical theatre actress and friend, Rachelle Ann Go.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa lahat ng nag-attend ng Summer Filipino Fiesta sa UK. Salamat sa inyong pagmamahal at suporta especially sa mga naka-appreciate ng OPM songs na kinanta natin. Sana magkita-kita tayo ulit. Sigurado marami pang pine-prepare ang GMA Pinoy TV at Mavshack in the coming months. Thank you so much for coming and God bless you!” says Christian.

The Summer Filipino Fiesta, organized by KMF Events Limited in partnership with GMA Pinoy TV, is the biggest and longest running Pinoy festivity in Sussex with over 2,000 attendees from the Filipino-British community. The grand beach party was filled with family fun, games, live music, cultural performances, and raffle prizes for everyone.

KMF Events Limited’s Chairman Ron Albano likewise expressed how grateful they were to have Christian and to have experienced his show-stopping performance during the festival. “A big thank you to GMA Pinoy TV for bringing Christian Bautista to Summer Filipino Fiesta. It was great seeing the Filipino community get together for the weekend and their excitement was so contagious during the performance of Asia’s Romantic Balladeer. I’ve been receiving a lot of positive comments and messages of appreciation about Christian’s performance. Everyone had a great time and it was truly an event to remember.”

Its been a secret we’ve perfected over the years. This is Belo’s signature way of doing minimally invasive laser liposuction.

For decades now Belo Medical Group has remained to be the most trusted leader in body


From the day Dr. Vicki Belo introduced Laser Liposuction more than two decades ago, they

have continued to better themselves and the practice. The Belo 360-degree liposuction is an

art perfected by our Belo Doctors using two pronged approach. This signature way of doing

liposuction uses laser-assisted technology that will result in beautifully shaped and sculpted

body. At Belo, the fat is melted via laser and when fat is liquified thats when it is suctioned. The

360-degree approach means fat removal is not limited to one area. Procedure is done in a

circumferential manner where parts surrounding the problem area are also targeted for a more

streamlined look.

As Dr. Vicki Belo herself describes it 360-degrees liposuction is a surgical technique that takes

into consideration that the body should look great when seen from all angles. Many liposuction

surgeons concentrate on the patient looking good from the front. We at Belo do it with 360

degree perspective. We leave very tiny scars and add the use of “bodytite” to tighten loose

skin after weve removed the fat.

With Belo 360-degree liposuction you not only get rid of unwanted fat, you also get the whittled

waist, toned arms and beautifully sculptured body.

June 25, 2019 Belo medical group launches its latest campaign. A resurgence of liposuction in

the market. Set at the grill room of the Manila House. Guests were treated to a sumptuous lunch

then a thorough never before heard explanation by the beauty doctor herself.

Dr. Vicki Belo was already a Doctor in training when she first witnessed liposuction performed

on her father. At that time she found it cumbersome to say the least. It was done on general

anesthesia and so much blood and used a really large cannula. This all changed when while

taking up specialization in lasers in the US she was a asked to accompany a friend who was

going to go for a liposuction. It was to be performed by a Dermatologist, and was only done

with local anesthesia. They were in and out of the clinic in 3 hours. Dr. Vicki Belo, tells guests

this is how she learned of tumescent liposuction ( this is the procedure to prepare the fat

before suctioning). Some 29 years ago she brought the first laser assisted liposuction in the

Philippines. Dr. Belo explains that the 360 degree liposuction is the best way to get rid of

stubborn fat. She likens it to a marathon. Liposuction brings you to 90% of the way the

remaining 10% is up to you.

Events Host Bianca Valerio is the Face or should we say the Body of Belo’s latest campaign.

She relates how she gained weight as she struggled with depression when her Brother died.

Bianca now boasts of her 34 -24- 38 curvaceous body. From a 30 inch waist line now to 24

inches. She credits beauty doctor Dr. Belo for giving her the kickstart she needed to get back in

shape. “ Its an answered prayer, she’s not God but she’s definitely my fairy God Mother.”

Bianca raves more about the Belo 360 degrees liposuction “ you can work out all you want, you

will lose the weight, lose the inches, but you will not get the sculpted body, you will not get the


The VIP media event ended with a high note with Dr. Vicki Belo raffling of designer loot she

bought from her recent trip to Paris. Two luxury bags went to lucky winners, one was a special

edition Louis Vuitton and the other the latest Dior saddle bag.

The characters of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards faces a dilemma that will either make or break the life they have long planned in the upcoming Star Cinema film, “Hello, Love, Goodbye”

Love and career are two of the important things that most people consider in making major decisions in their lives. Most generations were asked which they prioritize and often their answers vary—but what does the younger generation get to say about this topic?

TFC asked two young overseas Filipinos to answer the question “what will you choose, love or career? Why?”

Snooky, 27, from Japan, chose career. She explains: “Love can come anytime, while you have to build your career from scratch until you reap what you sow. Also, frankly speaking, nowadays there is a bigger chance to find an ideal partner once you are financially stable. It makes me feel happier and satisfied to attain my personal goals in life first before settling down.”

On the other hand, Bianca, 28, from Canada chose love over career. “I’ll choose love because this will make me the happiest. I feel that love can give me the more genuine kind of happiness, while my career is only fulfilling the ambitious side of me. Love is a complete package even in its simplest form,” she explained.

This is the dilemma that the characters of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards are facing in the Star Cinema film “Hello, Love Goodbye”, written by Carmi Raymundo and under the direction of the multi-awarded and blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina.

Joy (Kathryn) and Ethan (Alden) are two overseas Filipinos in Hong Kong with different goals in life. Joy is a domestic helper who is determined to do everything to have a better life, compared to the life she had as a child. While Ethan is a bartender who is building a permanent life in Hong Kong but has always been afraid of commitments.

In the process of getting to know each other, Joy and Ethan also discover new things about themselves, which could possibly affect the plans they have with their respective lives.

“Hello, Love, Goodbye” marks the first time that two of the prime stars today from Philippines’ media giants, ABS-CBN and GMA, are working on one project that tackles the lives of the overseas Filipinos.

“I appreciate the OFW more after seeing how hard their life is,” Kathryn said about portraying the life of an overseas Filipino. “In Hong Kong, they live a fast-phased life because they need to save. This movie opened me to different things and experiences that I can say made me whole. I salute the OFWs.”

On the other hand, Alden shared a bit what the audiences will expect in watching the film. “With this movie, the audience will see the struggles and the good side of being an OFW. Also, they will see how they evolved from the usual OFW whose only concern is the welfare of their family into someone who also thinks of their self,” he said.

Also part of the film are Maymay Entrata, Jameson Blake, Joross Gamboa, Kakai Bautista, Lovely Abella, and Jeffrey Tam.

Get a glimpse on the life of the overseas Filipinos and how it has changed over the years via the film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” as it screens in the different regions on these dates: August 1 in Papua New Guinea; August 2 in Saipan and Guam; August 4 in Norway; August 8 in the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Brunei; August 9 in the U.S., Canada, and Tel Aviv, Israel; August 10 and 11 in United Kingdom; August 11 in Ireland, France, Austria, Italy, Malta, and Taiwan; August 18 in Hong Kong; August 23 in Malaysia; September 1 in Spain and Japan; September 9 in Greece; September 28 and 29 in South Korea; and coming soon in Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Also catch the premiere happening on August 5 in the U.S. with Kathryn Bernardo, while it will be Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards who will grace the premieres in Dubai on August 9, in Abu Dhabi on August 10, and in Singapore on August 18. There will also be a special screening on August 25 in Cambodia.
