    Reimagining Mrs. Recto, the Regine original starrer
    by Edgar O. Cruz

    MANILA, Philippines – Award-winning director-production designer Dante Nico Garcia has transitioned from commercial to indie filmmaker.

    Garcia uploaded last Christmas the online version of Mrs. Recto, the reimagined Regine Velasquez drama-comedy starrer of the same title brought to the present time. He posted it on social media, primarily Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

    The original Mrs. Recto is set in Claro M. Recto Ave. in 1994 where Velasquez plays Clara M. of Recto, a takilyera who is a die-hard fan of Vilma Santos until the moviehouses of Recto Ave. turned obsolete due to the coming of mall-based theaters and had to close down.

    Clara is a single mother to a precious daughter named Monica Quijano, Vilma Santos’ character in Ibulong Mo Sa Diyos to refer to her fixation with the Star for All Seasons. She tried to survive by turning into a shop owner on Recto Ave. who peddles fake certificates and enrolment documents for a living.

    Original characters included Elmo Magalona as Hero is a teen promdi newly arrived in the city, Coney Reyes as Chona Aquino as the boarding house operator and Pen Medina as the gay Luchi Rizal.

    Produced by Panoramanila Pictures, Inc., the same team that brought Ploning, the Philippines’ official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film in the 81st Academy Awards, worked on Mrs. Recto. Garcia also megged OMG (Oh, My Girl) for Regal Multimedia, Inc..

    Garcia is the film’s scriptwriter and director. Its production had to stop in August 2010 before Velasquez married Ogie Alcasid. Principal photography went over budget as a result of schedule backlog caused by the difficulty to shoot on the avenue’s clogged sidewalks.

    Garcia has three reasons for wanting to complete Mrs. Recto. “Ayokong mamatay ng may hindi natapos na obra. Naipangako ko rin sa yumaong cinematographer ng pelikula na si Charlie Peralta na tatapusin ko ito. At nahihiya rin ako kay Regine kasi dapat huling movie niya ito bago siya ikasal. How Ploning was to Juday (Judy Ann Santos). Kaso hindi in-allow ni Lord,” Garcia clarified.

    The reimagined Mrs. Recto is now set in Palawan in the present time. Monica, Clara’s daughter, has grown up as an aspiring filmmaker. She is in Puerto Princesa to look for collaborators for her first screenplay about the story of her mother. She wants Velasquez to play the lead role.

    Monica finds her cast and crew in Casa Nieves, an artist’s hub in Puerto Princesa where like-minded creatives search for dreams and find happiness as mentored by art benefactor Toting as acted by Jun Sabayton.

    Blending the footage of the original Mrs. Recto with the reimagined version, Yan Yuzon is Benny Aquino, the grown-up son of Chona. He has turned into a painter who does Mrs. Recto’s hand-painted billboards based on the pegs of Monica’s characters.

    He accomplished this by completing the film at zero-cost: “Walang may talent fee sa mga artista sa new story. Kanya-kanyang pamasahe at gastos pati food and accommodation. Pati equipment libre. Lahat sila kaibigan lang na matagal ng alam ang ginagawa ng foundation ko dito sa Palawan at nagprisintang tumulong.”

    Garcia dressed up Casa Nieves, the real site of his advocacy of www.isdarevolution.com, where he uploaded Mrs. Recto. For the event, he dressed up Casa Nieves to look like the old moviehouses of Recto Avenue.

    Garcia plans to screen the Director’s Cut of Mrs. Recto on Dec. 5, 2016, the 15th anniversary of Lyrics & Sheets Foundation that he founded. “Diretso na nakapakete ang tatlong pelikula ko bilang pagsasara ng kabanata ng buhay ko sa commercial filmmaking,” he shared.

    Regine signs new contract with GMA Network, reveals other plans for 2016
    ni EEA

    REGINE Velasquez signed a new two-year guaranteed contract with GMA Network yesterday in the presence of the company's top executives led by Atty. Felipe Gozon.

    Before this, rumors have been floating around that the Asia's Songbird has been offered by a rival network for a hefty amount, but Regine said she always clings to "loyalty" more than the "royalty."

    "They treat me so well, more like with a heart," she said. "When I was doing my last soap (I Heart You, Pare) four years ago, I got pregnant (with Nate). When they learned about this, talagang sinabihan nila ako na magpahinga. At yung ginawa nila, para papalitan ako sa role at ituloy lang yung program, it was, wow, mahirap isipin. At pag may project ako, lagi akong may participation sa content. Bigay lang sila ng bigay, tapos, ako rin pala ang mahihirapang gawin. Ha ha ha ha."

    So what are the new shows that the network have laid down for Regine? VP for Drama Redgie Magno said they're taping a new rom.-com. very soon. "Dapat nga, kahapon pa ang umpisa ng taping," she joked. "Pero kidding aside, we're airing it as soon as makapag-umpisa na kami."

    Regine could also host a new variety show, where she's really good at, and Sarap Diva could stay in the GMA kitchen forever.

    "Marami na kaming pinag-uusapan but hindi pa namin puwedeng sabihin dahil hindi pa siya kumpleto," Regine said.


    When asked who she will endorse in the coming elections, Regine said, "Kung mag-i-endorse man ako, walang bayad. Malaking raket 'yan, but eversince naman, I never endorsed politicians na nagpabayad ako. Kung sakali man (mag-endorse), kailangan 'yung naniniwala talaga ako sa kanya."

    It is some personal values her late father, Gerry, has passed on to her and she wants carried on. "Nung nabubuhay pa ang tatay ko, talagang sinabihan niya ako na kung mag-i-endorse man ako, kailangan yung naniniwala ako at siya. At hindi kami nagpapabayad."

    But her husband, Ogie Alcasid, is known to be close to President Noynoy Aquino. Some people can deduce from that. (Or not?)


    Meanwhile, Regine was asked about an incident in Boracay where she and Ogie gatecrashed during a wedding. "Pabalik na kami noon sa hotel where we stayed (Discovery Shores) kasi may kausap kami. May nadaanan kami na wedding reception, and si Ogie, nag-dare sa akin. O dare, gatecrash tayo. Medyo nag-alangan ako kasi baka may tumanggi. Pero dare eh. Sige, so we talked to some people in-charge. Nasa loob na nga 'ata ng hotel yung bride and groom. Tapos, we talked to the band. Nung bigla akong kumanta, ayun, nagsayawan na. Pati yung bride and groom, lumabas, tuwang-tuwa. Pero isa't kalahating kanta lang ang nagawa ko. Naka-12,000 hits sa Youtube. Ha Ha."


    Regine will have a Valentine concert at MOA Arena with Martin Nievera again. But this time, they will have Angeline Quinto and Erick Santos as co-performers.

    She is also considering some deals with a recording company for a new album this year. "May mga kausap na kami. And we're readying new compositions. Ayaw ko na muna ng mga revival. Uso 'yan ngayon sa States, pero nauna na tayo. Gusto ko naman, magbigay ng bago sa tao."

    Ito ang LOYAL!

    So yung weekly show niya eh pinaghalong Party Pilipinas at Bubble Gang?

    Mukhang maganda yung serye na gagawin niya, gusto ko yung characterization na sinabi niya. Gusto ko kasing nakikita siyang umarte na ibang-iba sa sarili niya.

    Regine Velasquez gears up for upcoming shows
    by Joyce Jimenez

    MANILA, Philippines - Regine Velasquez is preparing for two big projects with her home network GMA.

    The Asia's Song Bird will do a TV series and a comedy variety show this year. This is in addition to her current show "Sarap Diva."

    "Actually right after this concert, I'm gonna start shooting na," she said about her upcoming TV series, in an interview on Wednesday. "Hindi ko pa pwedeng sabihin ang mga details kasi unfortunately something happened na parang na-hold muna ang mga kailangan namin gawin for the project. So wala pa rin akong ma-share. But, definitely I'm doing a soap this year."

    For now, Regine is focused with her Valentine concert "Royals," together with Martin Nievera, Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto. It will happen on February 13 in SM Mall of Asia Arena, and on February 14 at Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu.

    Regine is happy to be working with the two of the industry's balladeers. Although she admitted feeling pressured about being a "role model" to them.

    "Nakaka-pressure rin, parang syempre we're only humans," she explained. "So we also make mistakes. Syempre, we want to be positive role models for these kids."

    "Pero nakakatuwa, nakakataba ng puso," she added.

    She also defended Angeline and Erik to those who believe that the two are not ready to be tagged as "royals" based on the title of their concert.

    "Para sa akin hindi naman 'yon [importante]," she said about being on the same "level" with her co-performers.

    She then recalled the time when "I started in the business, nag-uumpisa pa lang ako at bago, Martin Nievera was already Martin Nievera during that time, and he did a concert with me."

    Regine then explained that Erik and Angeline deserve to be called royals because of their ability and what they've done in the industry.

    "So they deserve to be part of this concert and to be called royals." she said.

    Still Soaring
    by Rowena Tan

    Cebu City – Regine Velasquez-Alcasid is starting a new chapter in her 30-year-old showbiz career with the release of a 30-song compilation album under Viva Records.

    “Yung mga songs na ’yun - new songs,” she said. “So, you know why I’m excited. It’s just pretty amazing.”

    Just recently, Regine launched her first-ever cookbook, “Bongga Sa Kusina: Recipes from Sarap Diva,” also part of her anniversary activities. More, she will hold a grand concert sometime October.

    “Milestone kasi ’yan na kailangan i-celebrate and I’m just glad that people are still interested in me after 30 years,” the singer-actress related.

    Regine maintained she is still as passionate with singing as she was when she was just starting. She considers it a blessing too that her voice sounds great as ever.

    “Kaya nga thankful din ako na I was able to rest my voice for sometime. Some performers don’t. What happens is that they get burned out. Especially if they do the same thing everyday. So, for me, thankful ako na I get to rest for two weeks to a month bago sumabak uli,” she shared.

    Her family, as with the continued love and support of fans, inspire Regine to keep going.

    On enjoying the trust of promoters and sponsors, she said, “You just need to show them you are serious with your craft and that you are always willing to give your all.”


    Regine is happy good friend Jaya has found a home in ABS-CBN.

    She wasn’t surprised about the transfer, revealing Jaya texted her before she made her debut as Kapamilya in July, joining the judges’ table on “It’s Showtime’s” rebooted “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment.

    Regine only wishes Jaya the best, noting how they have become quite close through the years.

    “Kumare ko ’yan eh,” she quipped.

    The two worked together in several programs on GMA including “SOP,” “Party Pilipinas,” and “Sunday All Stars.”

    Saying goodbye

    Meanwhile, Regine recently organized a gathering for her co-stars in the now-defunct primetime series “Poor Señorita.”

    She gave them lavish gifts such as Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch bags and Gucci sandals, among others.

    “Nabili ko lang ’yun sa Greenhills,” she jested, before going on to explain how it was her way of thanking the cast for the good memories and friendship they built.

    “Tsaka what I have naman I consider blessings so I need to share it. I’m just happy din with the success of the show,” she said.

    Family is home

    Busy as she is, Regine always finds time to bond with her family, including organizing picnics and out-of-town trips.

    “I love holding family days talaga kahit nu’ng buhay pa si Papa,” she related.

    The 46-year-old mother believes home is where the heart is, noting, “Kahit saang lupalop pa kami, basta magkakasama kami, it’s home.”

    Still at it

    Regine’s family was with her in Cebu, where she performed in a concert for PLDT Home.

    The concert series, which was extended for a second year due to fan demand, is in line with with promotions for the Regine Telset Series, a limited edition landline phone series the company launched last year.

    As soon as she appeared on stage, fans were thrown into a tizzy.

    She began the proceedings with Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be,” followed by her hits “Ako’y Iyong-Iyo,” “Sana Nga” and “Tuwing Umuulan.”

    Properly warmed up, Regine then peformed more crowd-friendly tunes, including Rivermaya’s “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita” and a medley of Nina’s hits including “Someday,” “Jealous” and “I Don’t Want To Be Your Friend.”

    A high point in the show was her duet of “I Can” with Donna Cruz, whom she plucked out from the crowd.

    Other guests in the concert were husband Ogie Alcasid and Christian Bautista.

    Regine was energetic throughout the show held at the North Wing of SM City Cebu.

    “This is the most memorable leg of the tour,” she told us. “Kasi ang dami kong guests and eto na ata ang pinakamahaba kasi mas marami akong songs na pinerform.”

    The concert series’ next stop is Davao on Aug. 6.

    Regine Velasquez's R3.0 concert - MOA Arena (Oct. 21, 2017)

    Heto na naman tayo, hindi na naman makatulog dahil sa concert. A Regine concert always gives me a natural high.

    Sa umpisa pa lang ng show, mamamangha ka na sa honesty ni Regine. For someone regarded as "the best singer of the country," yung sabihin mong you lost your confidence eh malaking bagay 'yon. Pero sa performance na binigay niya, hindi siya dapat mawalan ng confidence kasi may magic pa rin siya. Most of the time, she sounded the same as before pero makikita mo lang yung effort. Kasi noon, talagang effortless. Aminado naman siya na nagbago na boses at katawan niya dahil tumatanda na siya kaya gano'n. Pero magaling pa rin talaga eh!

    There was a portion na sinabi niyang nagsimula siya as a balladeer. Tapos nauso yung R&B songs kaya inaral niya yung pagkulot ng boses. It took her a week to study the song "Weak." Then 2 weeks to study "Butterfly" (by Mariah Carey). Pinakanta rin siya ng rock songs hanggang kay Beyonce ("Single Ladies"). This explains why she has maintained her stature - she can adapt to changes and she works hard. Matiyaga siyang mag-aral ng kanta at technique. Sana makuha ito ng ibang singers.

    Her medley with the other female singers was superb! Ang galing-galing nila (Angeline Quinto - On the Wings of Love, Julie Ann San Jose - Shine, Aicelle Santos - Say That You Love Me, Jona - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing and Morissette - Sometime, Somewhere). Pero buti na lang na si Angeline ang simula. Kasi kung sa gitna o dulo siya, masisira yung momentum. This is where you see Regine's generosity and greatness. She gave the spotlight to them but at the same time, she went head to head with them. Birit kung birit, no backing down. Kaya nakukuha ni Regine ang admiration ng lahat. At ayan na naman ang humility niya, Regine said after the medley: "take a bow, our NEW QUEENS!" Binibigay niya trono niya pero wala pa naman makakapalit sa kanya.

    Ngayon ko lang nadiskubre na puwede palang gamitin ang cellphone as lighter sa shows. Sobrang ganda noong naka-light yung cellphones ng mga tao sa "You are My Song" number, parang mga stars.

    The stage, it was different but I like it. Malinis tingnan, less chaotic kasi 'di mo nakikita yung mga ginagawa ng band at ibang prod. people.

    Ito ang concert na feathers yata ang theme. Ang daming feathers sa damit ni Regine, pati yung visual effects eh feathers. Songbird to the hilt!

    Sobrang thankful si Regine sa lahat ng tumulong sa kanya at sa mga taong nariyan mula simula hanggang ngayon. Eh sino ba naman ang hindi matutuwa kapag nakikita nilang tinutumbasan niya yung love at support na binibigay sa kanya through her performance, she goes all out. Maubusan man ng lakas at boses basta mapasaya lang ang audience. Kaya Regine, hangga't nariyan ka eh makikinig kami.

    R3.0 album

    1.) Renditions - pinapakita na may wide range pa rin si Regine. Her vocal prowess highlighted.

    2.) Rise (original songs) - pang-millenial. Ganyan, nakakasabay siya. Binabagay niya yung boses niya sa kanta. Kudos! Masyadong nakaka-apekto yung "First Man In My Life."

    3.) Reflections (re-recorded songs) - it's okay. Mas gusto ko lang kasi yung original recordings ni Regine noong mga kanta except "I Can" kasi gusto ko si Nate.
