FOR A GOOD CAUSE – The sun and the stars once again “collide” on Nov. 23. The “collision” is for a good cause: Raise funds for Hebreo Foundation, which has helped raise millions of pesos to send poor but deserving scholars to school.
The sun in reference is Sun Life Philippines and the stars are the Star Magic celebrities, led by its brightest star, Piolo Pascual.
Yes, the 2013 SUNPIOLOGY COLOR RUN is set for Nov. 23, Saturday, at Bonifacio Global City.
ENJOY, RELAX – At a presscon held in Max’s (Scout Tuazon, QC), Piolo said: “This year, we are making the holiday season more vivid and charitable with Sunpiology Color Run. We just want everyone to enjoy running with their friends and family. Then let us help you relax and cool down with an after-show rave party.”
To which Sun Life chief marketing officer, Mylene Lora, added: “The Sunpiology has been a much anticipated annual charity event. And now that we have the stars by our side with Star Magic Gives Back, our combined efforts are sure to shine brighter.”
Enjoy the sunset with the stars and a bang of colors. Register at www.sunpiology.com for a run-and-party ticket ranging from P250 to P800. Distances include 1K for kids, 3K, 5K, and 10K. Registration is now open for all categories until Nov. 15.
‘DUTY FREE’ – That’s what a party girl calls a devastatingly handsome actor. “Duty Free” as in “diutay” – the Visayan word for small. The party girl claims Mr. Handome isn’t that impressive down there.
She had a fling with the actor when he wasn’t yet the big star that he is today. “He didn’t measure to great expectations. Duty Free.”
‘DAKOTA HARRISON’ – In showbiz lingo, the opposite of “Duty Free” is “Dakota Harrison” – again from the Visayan word “dako” (big).
Years back, a starlet confessed – in print and mind you – that a singer, low-keyed and mildmannered, was “Dakota Harrison.” She compared him to a popular chocolate bottle.
She described a mestizo actor – still very much around – as another “Dakota Harrison” – “Tunay na ‘Dakila.’ Parang botelya ng softdrink.”
