You will never know when will be your last.
Jonathan Garcia a.k.a Chokoleit, a well- known comedian in the industry, died last Saturday after his performance in the celebration of the Kawayan Festival in Abra.
After his death, netizens posted the last performance of the comedian in reminiscing their laughter with him. But some of them considered his last performance was a “premonitions” because of what he mentioned during his performance.
He said, “Siyempre ako ang mauuna, kung ako ang huli baka hindi ko na kayo aabutan.”
There were a lot of netizens who got chills over that statement that no one had ever expected it would happen in reality.
Chokoleit’s last words are chilling. Still can’t believe how life just passes by. Hope this helps us appreciate life and our loved ones. RIP.

Noticeably, during his performance, Chokoleit was having difficulty in breathing. And one of the netizens said that the comedian cut short his skit because of his cough.
He also mentioned that netizens always took pictures of him but he never saw them uploaded.
“Picture ng Picture hindi naman ako naniniwala dyan, ang dami nagpipicture jan wala naman akong nakitang nagupload.”
But now, due to his death, his pictures and videos will all be uploaded all over social media.
Panoorin ang huling performance ni Chokoleit sa Abra bago pumanaw. Kapansin-pansin na rin ang kanyang pagkahingal at kapos sa paghinga during the perfomance pero the show must go on at naitawid pa rin nya. For the last time he gave his last and remarkable performance! #RIPChokoleit

During his last moments, after his performance, according to JM De Guzman who was one of the performers on the event, all he thought was that Chokoleit was tired because of his performance before he was brought to the hospital.
“Not his usual self na parang jolly… inisip ko parang baka pagod lang or feel down,” said De Guzman.
“Pero at the same time I know he’s in a safe place, happy place,” he added.
Pops Fernandez, another performer on the same event can’t believe over Chokoleit’s death as she recently had a conversation with him.
“Sabi ko, ‘Kumusta ka na?’ sabi niya, ‘I’m in a good place right now saka nakaipon na ako, Ms. Pops’ so sabi ko ‘I’m happy happy naman for you,” shared by Fernandez.
Condolences from celebrities for the comedian has spread over social media.
One of his friends, comedian Vice Ganda, thanked the Lord for giving him a chance to meet him.
“Thank you, Lord for giving me a chance to meet Chokoleit and become his friend. I’m sad that we lost him, But happy that he’ll be in a much peaceful and happier place now with you. Thanks for everything Chokie. I love you!,” Vice Ganda.

Claudine Barretto also posted their video of spending their happiest moments together. It is the fanteserye “Marina” where his career bloomed by playing the role of “Perla” with the actress.
And so with other celebrities like Ogie Alcasid, Vhong Navarro, Angel Locsin, and Paulo Avelino who also sent their condolences over the social media.
At the age of 48, Chokoleit, the comedian and actor, died of a heart attack.
It’s not about the time you have spent your life in this world but how you have spent a good life. Indeed, as shown by the love he received, it is evidence that he spent a good life here on earth.
Despite the network rivalry, actress and television personality Rhian Ramos expressed her gratefulness towards both networks.
In an interview about her movie with JM de Guzman, she expressed the reason why she’s thankful to the two networks after she has been asked if she plans to transfer.
She said that even if she’s from GMA Network, the Kapamilya network never treated her like an outsider. “Hindi nila ako tinuturing na parang outsider, they always let me work with their top leading men.”
The actress admitted that she actually hasn’t received any formal offer for her to change networks, but she doesn’t mind as she’s still enjoying living the best of both worlds.
“I have a station that supports my dreams, GMA, and they’re very understanding towards me with all the things that I want to achieve. I’m also very grateful to ABS-CBN because they’re very kind to me, even if I’m from another network.”
On the other hand, she reassured that she’s still happy being a Kapuso and the reason why she’s not doing any TV shows as of the moment is because she’s not yet “ready.”
Rhian stars in an upcoming movie with JM de Guzman titled Kung Paano Siya Nawala.

For everyone can relate into this, give time to read and refresh once more relatable hugot lines which leave mark in our battling hearts.
1.) Mace: Para sa’kin kung mahal mo, habulin mo dapat ipaglaban mo ‘wag mo hintayin na may magtulak sa kanya pabalik sayo. Hilahin mo. Hanggat kaya mo ‘wag kang susuko, ‘wag kang bibitaw. Sorry, mahal ko eh.
2.) Mace: Wala naman pala ‘yun sa tagal ng relasyon. Kung hindi ka na nya mahal, hindi ka na nya mahal.
3.) Mace: Hindi na kita mahal makakaalis ka na. 7 words. Yung 8 years namin nagawa niyang tapusin 7 words.
4.) Mace: Alam mo ‘yung sinabi ni F. Scott Fitzgerald?“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”
5.) Anthony: Sa’n mo gusto pumunta? May Burnham park, Mines View park. Pwede tayo maglakad. Pwede tayo kumain. Pwede tayong matulog. Anung gusto mo? Mace: Makalimot.
6.) Anthony: Sabi nga nila diba kapag kayo, kayo talaga. Dadalin ka nalang ng tadhana ng kung sinuman, yun ay tanga. Tanga.
7.) Anthony: Tulad nga ng sabi ni John Lloyd, pa’nu ba ‘yun? Kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin kasi may paparating pa, yung magmamahal sa’tin at magpaparealize sa’tin kung bakit naging mali yung dati. Paparealize rin satin kung pa’no tyo dapat mahalin.
8.) Mace: Ang wish ko, na sana hindi ko na siya mahalin.
Anthony: Okay daw sabi ng shooting star.
9.) Mace: Gaano katagal bago mo siya nakalimutan?
Mace: Gaano nga katagal? 1 year? 2? 3? 4? 5?
Anthony: Importante pa ba ‘yun?
ang mahalaga, nakalimutan.
10.) Anthony: Kasi ‘yung ganyang kalaking pagmamahal, ganyang overwhelming love, imposibleng walang pupuntahan eh. May mababalik sa’yong pagmamahal. Not necessarily sa taong pinagbigyan mo, pero sigurado ako, mababalik ‘yan sa’yo.
In an era of forgettable “popcorn movies” which often have shallow story lines and minimal character depth, films like these are rare. You won’t usually see them in mainstream movie theaters. Oftentimes, these heartfelt opuses are tucked away in local film festivals. Independent filmmakers started to make quality movies that will make people fall in love. Last year, Cinema One Originals Film Festival decided to release one of its best and finest movies in selected theaters and because of popular demand, Star Cinema will distribute the film entitled “That Thing Called Tadhana” nationwide starting February 4, 2015, starring Angelica Panganiban and JM De Guzman. It is a film by Antoinette Jadaone, the woman behind the success of some movies like “English Only, Please”, “Relaks, It’s Pag-ibig” and “Beauty in a Bottle.”.
The film might appear as your average Filipino rom-com. A quirky, heartbroken girl wins the lottery of fate and meets a charming and equally heartbroken guy. They almost instantly form a bond and, well, you can guess what happens next.
That Thing Called Tadhana begins in the airport where Mace played by Angelica Panganiban struggles to fit in all her belongings in the required baggage allowance. There she meets Anthony played by JM De Guzman, a stranger willing to lend her some space in his baggage. This begins their friendship and an attempt to answer the question “where do broken hearts go?”
Angelica Panganiban won best actress award from the 13th Gawad Tanglaw, was brilliant as Mace, an emotionally-driven spunky girl who recently just got her heart shattered in a million pieces. After a crushing trip to Rome, she finds herself alone and crestfallen at the airport where she meets Anthony (JM de Guzman), a good-natured guy with an emotional baggage of his own. Both longing for an escape, they spontaneously embark on a trip to Baguio, hoping to get rid of the emotional anguish brought on by their failed relationships.
The setting took place in different places but it was furnished with a breathtaking cinematography, inducing wanderlust-like vibes as it featured the marvels of Baguio and Sagada.
“That Thing Called Tadhana” is a film that hopeless romantics will surely love. It will be showing on February 4, 2015, nationwide.
Here’s the official trailer.
