It turns out that Benjamin Alves is also part of the cast of GMA Network’s new epic drama ‘Sahaya,’ which was expected to be promoted at ‘Sunday Pinasaya’ and ‘Studio 7,’ in which former lover Julie Anne San Jose is a mainstay.
Many are inquiring if the exes will meet face-to-face at the said gigs, or if they will greet each other and hold conversations for the duration of the promotion.
It was in November 2018 that reports were published about the couple parting ways, almost the same time when news of the death of the actor’s father broke out.
Before the year ended, the two unfollowed each other on Instagram. And Julie Anne even admitted in an interview with PEP.ph that she and Benjamin could not stay as friends after the break-up.
“I’m really, really focused pagdating sa mga bagay-bagay when it comes to my work, my craft, bettering myself my music. ‘Yun ‘yung important for me this year,” said Julie Anne.
‘Sahaya’ brights to light the inspiring story of a young Badjao woman who triumphed despite all life’s challenges. Throughout her journey, Sahaya remains true to her culture and beliefs as a Badjao, even defying the power of love. The series stars Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix with Migo Adecer completing the love triangle.
Meanwhile, the drama starring Benjamin will start airing this March, under the direction of Zig Dulay.

It’s not every day we get to see Kapamilya and Kapuso Stars sharing one stage, right?
But Vivo Philippines has that power to make them unite for one big celebration. In the recent grand launch of their newest flagship V7 Plus at the Manila Marriott Hotel, the top 5 leading global smartphone brand takes on the biggest leap to date!
The V7+ is the Vivo’s newest pride in its line of leading-edge smartphones, elevating the brand’s leadership in selfie and smartphone display technology. With that being said, I think they have fulfilled that mission of empowering self-expression of the next generation.
Imagine? A 24MP front shooter camera that provides a selfie that has a quality of those shot using a DSLR! With superb 5.99″ all-screen display and 84.4% screen to body ratio, Vivo has clearly outdone themselves. Another cool spec of this new stunner is the Special Face Beauty 7.0–a setting that brightens up photos and evens out complexions so capturing a selfie moment is not a problem, especially in a dimly-lit environment. Portrait mode, on the other hand, blurs out backgrounds to highlight sharper selfie features. There’s more yet. Hold your breath!
This latest offering from Vivo has the dual-sim (Nano-SIM) and runs on Funtouch OS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Moreover, it rocks a Smart Split 3.0 feature, allowing users to check their messages, mails, among other things without interrupting the currently running app. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC coupled with 4 GB RAM + 64 GB of ROM expandable up to 256 GB.
The security feature is also augmented with its face ID access feature that allows one to unlock the phone with mere facial recognition. An eye-protection mode is also an option, a facet providing comfort and protection during longish phone usage.
The launch was graced by the brand’s growing endorsers. Their ambassadors include Darren Espanto, KZ Tandingan, Chie Filomeno, Maris Racal, Inigo Pascual, Jason Dy, Boyband PH, Julie Anne San Jose, Paul Salas, TJ Monterde, Andrea Brillantes, Tony Labrusca, Kira Ballinger, Barbie Forteza, Loisa Andalio, Kisses Delavin, Maymay Entrata and of course, the teen king and queen Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
You can have all of this for only Php. 17,990! A moment of silence here. You can get that Vivo flagship with that amount? A major dibs, perhaps!
