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.
Maymay Entrata has showed off her skills in walking like a beauty queen. She was admired and received lots of encouragement from her fans to join beauty pageants, but then it isn’t in her priorities.
The actress doesn’t see herself joining a beauty pageant. It seems very difficult for her because she has a lot of priorities in her life and wants to focus more on her showbiz career. Still, she thanks everyone for saying that she has the potential to become a beauty queen.
“Kapag beauty queen kasi, hindi po clear sa akin kung ‘yon ang gusto ko. Maraming salamat po sa nagsasabi. Para sa akin magiging mahirap ‘yon. Marami pa akong priority sa buhay ko, may trabaho po dito sa showbiz.”
The actress was laughing while sharing the conversation with her grandfather – about her joining a pageant and telling him that. “Sinasabi ng lolo ko, sabi ko, ‘Maawa ka sa akin. Wala akong dibdib, ‘tay,’” is an implication that as of now, she is not seeing herself joining a pageant.
Maymay is also aware that Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray wanted her to portray her in a ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ episode, should it push through. To be chosen by Miss Catriona makes her feel so overwhelmed.
“Ang alam ko po, isa ako na talagang overwhelmed. Sobrang humbling na ako ang isa sa mga pinili ni Ms. Catriona pero gano’n nga po nakakakaba talaga.”
The majority of the netizen’s decision is what matters most to her, because she wanted all of the people who will watch the episode to be happy, instead of questioning with so many ”whys.” She also states that they have both different cultures, and she has doubts within herself in speaking English since Catriona is a fluent speaker.
“Gusto ko sang-ayon lahat ng tao. Gusto ko masaya lahat sila. Hindi ‘yung ‘Ah, bakit siya?’ Kung ano ang majority na gusto ng tao, ‘yun ang dapat sundin. Magkaiba kami ng culture ni Ms. Catriona. Hindi ko alam kung nagdadalawang-isip sila. Alam n’yo naman na ang ganda ni Ms. Catriona, English din siyang (magsalita), alangan naman na mag-English din ako sa MMK.”
As of now, there’s still no confirmation of her portraying Catriona Gray in ‘MMK’ and its clear to us that she is not into beauty pageants.
A unit of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) has recommended a deportation case against Fil-Am celebrity Tony Labrusca.
In an interview with Philippine News Agency on Wednesday, January 16, BI Deputy Commissioner Tomas Javier said that it because of his lack of a working visa.
“The (Intelligence Division) recommended to Legal (Division) the filing of deportation case against Labrusca for working without permit, I think.”
It started on January 3, when Labrusca had an alleged burst of outrage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. He has said to have cursed and shouted at immigration officers who were asking for his working permit.
He was said to be upset after being only allowed 30 days in the country and not the balikbayan privileges which are only given to former Philippine citizens and those with a Filipino family member travelling with them.
In a statement, Labrusca admitted that he was frustrated and was not aware of the policies.
“I admit I was a bit frustrated and that I asked why I was only given 30 days to stay in the country this time. I was unaware of the policy that because I was not with my mother, I did not qualify for a Balikbayan stamp.”

Rumors have been going around that Kapamilya star Enchong Dee is seeking a government post in his hometown, Naga City.
In the press conference of his upcoming movie, Elise, on Wednesday, January 16, Dee clarified it once and for all. He said that the so-called political plan is just a joke inside their Star Magic family.
“I was in Sweden nung nagtatanong kung sino sa mga artista ng ABS ang tatakbo for this coming election. It was all just a joke within our Star Magic family, not knowing na after ko pala mag-joke, sinabi na ng Star Magic sa news natin na tatakbo ako.”
He said that people even tell him that the plan was such a waste as it didn’t really proceed.
“No, no, no. Every now and then, I would encounter people from ABS na sinasabi sa akin, sayang na hindi natuloy. I am sorry, it was a joke.”
Dee added that he envisioned his life to remain peaceful and just serve the public in his own way.
“No, gusto ko tahimik ang buhay ko. Pakiramdam ko mas marami akong matutulungan kung wala ako sa pulitika talaga, and at least sarili kong pera ang ginagamit ko.”
Julia Barretto and her onscreen partner Joshua Garcia appeared in an episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda, wherein Garcia was asked what his thoughts were about Barretto’s daring fashion sense and style.
There he expressed concern over her choice not to wear a bra and cycling short at times.
“Si Julia di sya nag-iingat minsan sa susuotin nya. Tapos minsan wala pa syang cycling, tas minsan di sya nag-aano [bra], nipple tape lang nilalagay nya.”
Julia then explained her side in an amusing answer, saying that the bra won’t have anything to hold on to anyways.
“Ako naman din walang kakapitan ‘yung bra.
“So mas masakit talaga kasi nagtatry naman yung bra ko eh, pero wala talaga syang makapitan.”
She also said that she only learned to wear cycling shorts from her partner and that her fashion style is one of her ways of expressing herself.
“Sa bra naman, pwede naman, mag-baby bra ka na lang,” Garcia joked.
“Tignan mo pati nga baby bra di kumakapit sa ‘kin, kaya nga tape lang nga, eh.”
Netizens expressed their amusement regarding Barretto’s answer and some of them even said that they can relate to.
HAHAHHA saw the clip of Joshlia's where Julia was asked regarding her style (not wearing bra)omg she's so cuuuuuttteeee i love her candidness!!! So cute juju

While others laughed at the young star’s answer, some noticed Garcia’s funny answer.
Julia: “Wala talagang kakapitan yung bra”
Joshua: “Mag baby bra ka na lang”
Julia: “Kahit nga baby bra wala ng kinakapitan kaya nga tale na lang.

Actress Jodi Sta. Maria just came back from her vacation with son Thirdy Lacson wherein they traveled in Finland and Sweden.
She shared that it was Thirdy’s request to try husky sledding.
“First time kaming makapag-try ng husky sledding and at the same time, we were able to drive a reindeer sled. We were able to get a reindeer driver’s license.”
View this post on Instagram
Just got back from our family holiday. Ibang-iba yung experience sa Finland and Sweden dahil hindi naman nagyeyelo dito sa ‘tin sa Pilipinas. Tulad nalang ng paglalaro namin ni Muy sa snow. Super na-enjoy namin yun. Minsan parang ako pa yung bata kaysa sa anak ko. Haha! ❤️ It’s as if time stands still when you watch the snow fall. Mapapa-muni muni ka din sa lamig: Pag makapal na yung snow at hindi ka makalabas, you can either shovel, or make snow angels. Just like in life – When faced with trials, you can grumble about how hard the situation is, or you can keep a positive outlook, see the good, and make the most of the experience. Sana naging maayos at payapa ang Christmas and New Year break niyo para makabalik tayo sa mga trabaho natin ng recharged at inspired. Kayo, kamusta ang pasok ng New Year niyo? ❤️
A reindeer driver’s license is required for an individual to be able to drive a reindeer sled in Lapland. There are only two modes of transportation in the area: ski and the said sled.
Jodi will be a part of three movies. One of which is Second Coming wherein she’ll play as the wife of Marvin Agustin.
“It’s a mix of drama, thriller, and horror. Ano ba ang naghu-haunt sa pamilya ito? Totoo ba itong multo?”
She has also finished filming with Laurice Guillen for the movie Man and Wife.
The third one is Clarita, which is still in the middle of the principal photography.
But aside from that, Jodi has hinted about a Hollywood film that she’s about to be a part of.
“May gagawin tayong international film very soon. Pero wala pa ako sa posisyon to spill the beans.
“But I am really praying about it. Hollywood levels! Masyado akong kinikilig kasi parang hindi ko alam kung paano sila kakaharapin. Baka ma-tongue-tied ako. Baka manganga ako, ma-starstruck ako.”
But for now, she’s back to filming her series Mea Culupa that is set to air this 2019. She’s going to act alongside John Arcilla, Janice de Belen, Bela Padilla, Sandino Martin, Ketchup Eusebio, Kit Thompson, Ivana Alawi, and Tony Labrusca.

Ever since Tony Labrusca’s controversy at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, rumors about his sexuality have surfaced. While others are shocked by the gossip of the celebrity having a boyfriend, others are against the idea of outing him without his consent.
A personality that was immediately linked to Labrusca is Kapamilya star Alex Diaz as he was said to be in the immigration office when the former’s melt down was happening.
Some netizens are supportive about the idea of the two being a couple.
While this netizen have poked fun from it.
Alex Diaz defends Tony Labrusca
In a series of tweets, Diaz has confirmed that he was with Labrusca at the immigration office. He added that the latter was made to look like he was the only one at fault even if both sides did something wrong.
I was also at immigration & saw the whole thing go down. So trust me when I say kudos to you homie for rising above it. @tonythesharky wasn’t the only one at fault but he was made to look like the bad guy when both sides had faults. Proud of you homie. ps bungee jumping was epic pic.twitter.com/GW58Ks0OAy

He said that there were three other officers in the room when Labrusca was supposed to be having a private discussion with the supervisor. He also accused them of fishing information from him.
Nobody mentioned the fact that while Tony was supposed to be having a private conversation with the Superior I.O 3 I.O’s came into the office and approached me on the couch trying to fish for information as to what was happening. I dont think thats their job.
— △lexander Diaz ♚ (@alexandermcdizz) January 4, 2019
He added that everyone is capable of making mistakes but everyone assumed what happened instead of hearing from both sides.
Everyone is human and capable of mistakes even Tony who got heated and these IO’s who claimed not to know who he was at all but proceeded to blast him on social media right off the bat. Sana we hunt for both sides always before passing judgement, slandering or defaming people.

International supermodel Tyra Banks has once again acknowledged Maymay Entrata as she liked an edited photograph of her and the Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 big winner.
A fan made a collage of Banks and Entrata; uploaded it to Instagram under the account of ‘just_love_mayward‘. It showed the two doing the same pose in different scenarios.
It did not stop there as the supermodel liked another edit of the same account, which included more photographs than the previous one.
It was not the first time that Banks has acknowledged Entrata on social media as it can be remembered that she also liked photographs of the Kapamilya star from last year’s Star Magic Ball as well as her catwalk from the Bench fashion show, where the Filipino young star walked alongside her tandem Edward Barber.
Entrata recently took part at the 2018 Arab Fashion Week, walking for Filipino designer Furne One‘s collection.
Regine Valesquez’s recent signing with ABS-CBN is one of the most talked about topics this week.
After a month of staying mum about her network transfer, she has been emotional as soon as she stepped inside the premises of the Kapamilya network.
She’s not the only icon that moved from GMA-7 to ABS-CBN. Her husband, Ogie Alcasid, has also transferred, along with others like Janno Gibbs, Jaya and Lani Misalucha.

In a recent interview with Vice Ganda in Gandang Gabi Vice, actor Jake Cuenca revealed the reason why he released the sexy photos that shook the internet.
He stated that he has been looking forward to collaborating with the photographer, who happens to be Andrei Suleik, so when the opportunity came, he immediately grabbed the chance.
And since Los Bastardos, his current teleserye, started airing, it would be a good promotional tactic for himself.
“Nagkataon na matagal ko nang gustong mag-shoot kasama ‘yung photographer niyan, si Andrei Suleik, so nagkataon na eere na rin ‘yung ‘Los Bastardos,’ magandang mag-promote ng sarili.”
It has also been rumored that the photos are for a personal book. According to a report by balita.net.ph, his manager Neil de Guia said that the actor just wanted to see that at his 30s, he can still be sexy.
“It’s his personal book lang. Gusto lang niya makita na at 30s kaya pa niya magpa-sexy at makipagsabayan sa mga batang aktor.”
And when asked about the number of copies he would print, de Guia answered, “Isa lang. Ha, ha, ha!”
