The headline which says, "Kim Chiu looking gorgeous as usual at her Fat Out presscon. She tells PUSH what's up with her and Gerald Anderson! ;)" seem to have turned off the mood of the latest endorser of Fat Out.


Fans of Kim rallied against the tweet as they accused the entertainment website of dragging the actress to her former loveteam Gerald Anderson.

Ang Sugo ng Diyos sa mga Huling Araw
Performed by: Sarah Geronimo
Arranged by: Louie Ocampo

Sa simula nagpanukala Ka
Sa malayo'y may mga hihirangin
At sa mga wakas ng lupa'y tatawag
ng sugong magsasagawa ng iyong payo.

Kahit na sa tao'y hamak siya
Inalalayan mo ng iyong kamay
Hindi siya natakot
Ni hindi nanghina
Pagkat lakas niya'y Ikaw, Ama.

Refrain:
Ang iyong sugo, oh Diyos
Sa mga huling araw
Nanguna ng tapat sa Iglesia Ni Cristo
Di mapipigil ang gawaing ito dahil sa awa Mo.
Mula sa isang tao,
Ngayon ay bayan mo.
Purihin Ka, oh Diyos.

Sa hirap at pag-uusig man
Siya ay hindi nag-alinlangan
At sa iyong sugo pangako'y natupad
Sa iyong aral ay nanindigan

Pumanaw man ang iyong sugo
Iglesia ay pinagpala mo
Pagkat tanging sa Iyo ang gawaing ito
Natupad ang panukala Mo.

Reoeat Refrain 2x

Purihin Ka, o Diyos.

Are Luis Manzano and Angel Locsin getting married next year?

Is showbiz's power couple - Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano - getting married next year?

This is the 1 million dollar question that popped up in social media after a national radio station's Twitter account posted this piece of news last Thursday, October 1. According  from an unnamed source of DZRH News @dzrhnews, the Locsin-Manzano wedding was confirmed to take place on June 2016.



But Manzano, the alleged soon-to-be groom, did not take this into sitting. Luis quoted the tweet, not once but thrice. The seemingly surprised tv host did not directly deny the news but instead asked "curiously" who confirmed the news. In the end, Manzano hinted that wedding could possibly happen in 2016.

The series of tweets are posted below:


As of this writing, both Locsin and Manzano have not publicly announced nor there is any kind of news of their engagement.

Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado posted on Tuesday afternoon, October 2, through her Twitter account @MercadoJen, a tweet which expresses her "complaint" due to lack of rest.

"Im not a robot... I need a break too.", Mercado tweeted with a mad face emoticon.

Fans of the actress were worried and told Mercado to not get mad. Others asked the actress to take some time to rest.

Mercado, who's been visible of late after her movie English Only Please made money in the box office, is doing left and right movie and tv projects. Currently, Mercado has a primetime soap airing on GMA7 with rumored boyfriend Dennis Trillo. She also serves as one of the jury in Starstruck, the network's reality-based artista search hosted by Dingdong Dantes.

She has also a movie coming out soon with Sam Milby entitled The Prenup and a new movie (MMFF 2015 entry) with movie with Jericho Rosales called Walang Forever.

Some netizens recalled the same thing that happened to then GMA's prized star Angel Locsin (now a kapamilya star) who got burned out from doing various projects. So, will she do another Angel Locsin? Just asking...
