GRABE palang magmamahal ang fans ni Angel Locsin.
Nagwala ang mga ito sa social media dahil napansin nilang hindi pala nakasama ang idol nila sa 2014 Summer Station ID ng ABS-CBN.
Kinulit-kulit ng Angel fans ang mga executive ng network sa social media para hingan ng paliwanag kung bakit hindi nakasama ang idol nila sa summer station ID video.
Sumagot naman si Mico del Rosario na namamahala sa promo ng Star Cinema, ”Wala po siyang maibigay na schedule.
“I hate the summer station id of Abs-Cbn bat wala si @143redangel? We deserve an acceptable reason!” mataray na comment ng isang maka-Angel.
Tonet, from a businessman to film producer to a bonsai collector
GROWING up in one of the poorest streets in Metro Manila opened the eyes of film producer and art collector Anthony Gedang to grab every opportunity that comes his way and to be the best of what he can do.
At a very young age, he exchanged trade secrets with the experts and made the most out of it. ”Friend ko ‘yung magagaling at malalaking tao. Tapos Ipinasa na nila ‘yung knowledge nila sa akin kaya mabilis akong lumaki,” he said.
Anthony, or Tonet to his friends and relatives, produced the award-winning indie film Ataul For Rent directed by Neil ‘Buboy’ Tan under his own movie outfit—Artiste Entertainment Works International. His second indie film is Casa and now in the post-production stage of their third film Edna which is about an OFW portrayed by brilliant actress Irma Adlawan and the directorial debut of multi-awarded actor Ronnie Lazaro.
Aside from producing films, Tonet is a successful businessman.
He is the president of one of the leading equipments and service supplier in the water industry serving Manila Water, Maynilad and many other water utilities and water districts all over the Philippines, the WaterKonsult Equipment and Services, Inc.
“I trained salesman to be master salesmen. I made a Chinese store into a multi-million company.
“During that time, tinuruan ko ‘yung mga kapatid ko. Then, umalis na ako sa company ng partner ko. Wala akong transition, mabilis na mabilis lahat. Until, nahilig na ako sa pag-aalaga ng bonsai,” said Tonet.
Along his new found enchantment on cultivating bonsai plants, he also learned the teaching of Hinduism and Buddhism.
“Kasi sa sobrang high pressure ko, kapag nakikipag-usap ako sa negosyo ko, sabay-sabay. Lahat kinakausp ko. Kaya ‘yun, tinamaan ako ng lahat ng sakit. Naglagay ako ng bonsai sa likod ng bintana ng opisina ko para kapag uminit ang ulo ko, titingin ako roon, mare-relax ako,” Tonet explained.
Recently, the Adamson University Rotating Exhibits Gallery presented cultural artifacts collection of Anthony last February 7 at the newly-designed gallery in a show dubbed Travel, Learn, Conquer: The Gedang Experience.
