St. Peter Life Plans partners with Breakout Philippines in celebration of the DeathCare Week

Remember that viral story where a little girl was said to be showing up in one of the rooms and that they had to close the place for two months and invite some paranormal experts to have a look on what's happening? 




Last Saturday, me and my friends went to Breakout Philippines and tried to solve the mystery behind the death of this little girl in the Hide and Seek room. The room is filled with puzzles that we need to solve in order to escape the room. There are also clues hidden everywhere that helped us in unfolding the mystery. 

As much as I want to share the whole experience, I don't want to spoil the fun to those who haven't tried the room yet. 



We may have not successfully escaped the room, but we sure did have a lot of fun solving the mystery behind the little girl's death. Here are some tips and lessons learned that you may also find handy when trying out the escape rooms at Breakout Philippines:

  1. Work as a team and listen to each other's ideas. 
  2. Do not overthink! There are some things that you might find as a clue, but didn't actually have to do with solving the puzzles.
  3. Always follow the light (at least for the Hide and Seek Room) - this actually makes solving easier because you are guided to where you should be going and looking for solutions
  4. If you are gifted with some paranormal ability, just keep whatever to yourself. 
  5. It isn't scary at all. If you're hesitant in trying the escape room because you are scared, forget it! Take it from someone who easily gets scared at almost anything. ;)

    And you know what we missed doing? PLAN. In situations like this, planning would have definitely helped us prepare for whatever we're getting ourselves into. 



    Want to try it too?

    Jeric Gonzales celebrates birthday with the lolos and lolas of Kanlungan ni Maria

    At the age of 25, Jeric Gonzales can only wish for good health, a better career and more mature roles in his upcoming projects. Aside from doing teleseryes, he also wants to explore doing indie films. Currently, he's enjoying himself as a solo actor but given the chance, Thea Tolentino, Janine Gutierrez, and Gabbi Garcia are his top three choices to be paired with as a loveteam.


    Last month, Jeric Gonzales celebrated his birthday together with the elders of Kanlungan ni Maria in Antipolo. He personally chose the venue as his heart is really close to the elders. In fact, he had already spent several birthdays at Kanlungan ni Maria. 

    As soon as Jeric arrived at the venue, the lolos and lolas of Kanlungan ni Maria warmly welcomed the team to their home with a song number. 


    Before the fun begins, the sisters of Kanlungan ni Maria gave their warm wishes for the birthday celebrant.


    And do you remember the lola that went viral because of her funny jokes? Jeric got the chance to meet Nanay Pina in person and laughed at the funny punchlines and witty questions from "Lola Jokes" herself.





    The elders also showcased their golden voice and offered the celebrant a heartwarming song. Here's Nanay Elisa singing "Dahil Sa'yo":


    Before we all enjoy the food prepared by GMA Artist Center, Jeric expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the lolos and lolas of Kanlungan ni Maria for joining him in celebrating his birthday. 


    And before I forget, what's a birthday celebration without the traditional birthday song and blowing of the candle, right?




    Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JERIC!!! Wishing you all the best!

    BONUS: Here are more snaps from Jeric Gonzales' birthday celebration at Kanlungan ni Maria. Enjoy!

    Former Mr. Quezon joins Gentlemen of the Philippines 2017

    A dreamer in Quezon is making a blast now in the pageantry as the upcoming competition, the 2017 Gentlemen of The Philippines, one of the promising search competitions in the nation is about to come to its much-awaited finale.

    His name is Kristian Sarmiento, 21 years old from Lucban, Quezon and stands 5 feet 10 inches who at this point of his life seems to be very motivated to bag a title in the national competition. This former Mr. Quezon of 2013 believes that joining Gentlemen of The Philippines can help him build his confidence, overcome body issues, and further develop his personality. 


    After announcing a number of fab and fit hopefuls in the race, Kristian remains outstanding and at par with his goal by managing his time to maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Working out has been my hobby for quite some time, I believe being fit makes me feel more comfortable and confident.” Kristian said.

    With a little resemblance to Joko Diaz, an equally hot matinee idol in the 90s, Kristian trusts that if there are opportunities in the show business, he will have an open mind since he is very good in dancing. In fact, this is the core where he finds himself in a comfortable arena. If the audience are lucky in the upcoming Gentlemen Finale, they might see Kristian in his moves from the stage to your heart.

    When talked about his family background, Kristian is very vocal about his love towards his siblings. “I grew up with my siblings since my parents has to work in another town” Kristian shared. Youngest among the 3 siblings, he believes that despite childhood rivalries amongst them, there is a home that will always be there for him at the end of the day.

    Highlights and Behind-the-scenes of Sunday PinaSaya's 2nd Year Anniversary Special

    For the longest time, our Sunday noontime TV experience is all about musical variety shows where we witness a showdown of vocal prowess and admire battles on the dance floor. With a few experimenting on changing the format, GMA obviously struggled in the competition. And it was only until two years ago when the network decided to go against what we've all been used to and introduced a new platform that changed our Sunday afternoon. It was definitely a brave change but the results pretty much shows that it is indeed a brilliant move. 


    Sunday PinaSaya is a noontime comedy-variety show that airs in GMA Network every Sunday. The show features some of Kapuso's popular names and comedians including Marian Rivera, Ai-ai de las Alas, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, Julie Anne San Jose, Gabbi Garcia, Ruru Madrid, Valeen Montenegro, Gladys Guevarra, Lovely Abella, Andre Paras, Jerald Napoles, Kim Last, Boobsie Wonderland, Pekto, Joey Paras and Atak.




    Last weekend, we got a chance to watch the show's second year anniversary special live. It's really nice to see all the action behind the cameras - how the scenes are being set up, artists rehearsing and reviewing their scripts before going live, and goofing along with the casts during commercial gaps. When you get to see all these, you'll just appreciate the efforts given by everyone who does everything to provide us entertainment.



    The show did their usual comedy skits, but what surprised me is the YaKapAn segment where the leads, Alden Richards, Ruru Madrid, and Ai-ai de las Alas, went on an intense acting showdown. I honestly didn't know that the show isn't just all about comedy. And this segment also garnered praises from the netizens who have seen it.


    Aiai de las Alas and Marian Rivera also showed their versatility in acting through the Aktingan na Pangmalakasan segment:


    Julie Anne San Jose, together with Christian Bautista, Aicelle Santos, and Gian Magdangal, closed the show with their rendition of Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson's Symhony.



    I was quite disappointed though because I didn't get to see Chuchay and Boobsie :( Hopefully, next time!


    Here are some highlights during the show:
