Heart disappointed with Senator Chiz?

Published in Entertainment
Is pretty actress Heart Evangelista disappointed with her boyfriend Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero?
 
Reports on the alleged disappointment surfaced after the couple emerged from their vacation in Europe.
 
Heart, who is Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco in real life, it was learned, was surprised that the senator did not take advantage of the Europe tour and take a few moments to propose marriage to her.
 
Showbiz authority and columnist Ethel Ramos wrote in her column about Heart's dilemna.
 
"Did we hear it right that Heart Evangelista was disappointed when her boyfriend, Senator Chiz Escudero, did not even mention marriage during their European travel?" she asked.
 
Fans and supporters of Heart and the senator, however, played down the issue, saying the senator maybe just reserving it for more appropriate time.
  
“But he may just be waiting for a more appropriate time,” people close to Heart told her. “Baka ikaw ang magulat na right after the proposal, kasalan na kaagad ang i-suggest niya,” they added.
 
Heart, it was learned, was hurt with the announcement of Senator Miriam Santiago that she has stage 4 lung cancer.
 
The comely actress said Senator Miriam treats her like a daughter and she, in turn, looks to Senator Miriam like a second mother.
 
It will be recalled that it was Senator Miriam who introduced Sen. Chiz to Heart almost two years ago.
 
“Siya ang parang naging matchmaker namin ni Senator Chiz,” Heart disclosed.
 
Earlier, it was reported that it is only a matter of time before Heart becomes Mrs. Chiz Escudero.
 
“Well I think we've set, like he already fixed his household and everything. So eventually I'm probably going to move in to that,” she said at Cream Silk at 30 anniversary party. 

Angelica and John Lloyd Cruz to wed soon?

Published in Entertainment
Is Angelica Panganiban tying the knot with boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz?
    
This question popped up when singer Jed Madela disclosed that he would be singing for the wedding of the said couple as reported by entertainment reporter MJ Felipe on Bandila last July 3. 
However, a columnist immediately said the invitation to Jed "is just the usual “joke” among friends."
" After all, Jed is a world-class singer. And Jed singing in anyone’s wedding is dream come true," the columnist added.
    
Obviously, the couple have not announced their intention of settling down soon, according to columnist.
 In fact, the Kapamilya actress told broadcaster Anthony Taberna on “Tapatan ni Tunying” recently that she and Loydie are still focused on their respective career.
 So, wedding is still farfetched for the couple at this moment.

Pangasinan 5th biggest province in number of OFWs

Published in Latest News
LINGAYEN, Pangasinan - More than 175,000 registered Filipinos overseas and migrants are from Pangasinan, making it the fifth largest province in terms of the number of OFWs.
The overseas Pangasinenses' remittance is more than half of the total remittances from Ilocos region.
This was reported to the Pangasinan Migration and Development Council by Andrea Luisa C. Anolin of the Commission of Filipinos Overseas (CFO) during a meeting of the council.
 
Antolin added that the province posted a share of P7.34 billion from the P11.4 billion total remittances of Region 1 for the period April to September 2006.
On top of the remittances, Anolin noted the support of Pangasinan’s overseas workers to the CFO’s Lingkod sa Kapamilya (LINKAPIL) or Link for Philippine Development, a program aimed at forging deeper partnership between expatriates and Filipinos in the home country.
According to a report, the Filipino overseas from Pangasinan contributed P146 million to their home province in the form of donations and projects which include medical missions, infrastructure, scholarship, livelihood and holding of skills transfer seminar.
Taking cognizance of the contributions of Pangasinan to the country’s economy, Anolin said the CFO has put up three satellite offices in Pangasinan, particularly in Dagupan City, Urdaneta City and Rosales town to cater to the needs of the overseas workers.
As member of the PMDC, the CFO vowed to help the provincial government in the campaign against anti-illegal recruitment and human trafficking activities as well as in the formulation of plans and programs for the welfare of OFWs and their families.
