Meeting Mark Zuckerberg and My Facebook Friends Day Experience

Last January 31, 2016, Fellow Filipino Abby Asistio flew to San Francisco and had the wonderful opportunity of being chosen as one of the eighteen invited by Facebook on their 12th Anniversary Friends Day celebration with California-based Alopecia awareness advocate, Rachel Regal.  Alopecia is an autoimmune condition which results in partial or total head and body hair loss.  Abby Asistio have had it since she was four while Rachel just developed it sometime in 2012, the same year she discovered that her 10-year-old daughter, Eliana, had it, too.  Six inspiring stories were picked by Facebook among its 1.64 billion users and Abby’s friends were all amazed when theye’ve found out that Abby’s Alopecia story was one of them.  Imagine that!

Abby and Rachel met each other through the double A hand sign campaign that Aby started in 2012, and They've been "connected" since then.  Last year, Facebook Stories featured how these two were able to build a friendship, as well as campaign for disease awareness through Facebook!  And last February 1st, Abby and Rachel had the chance to tour FB headquarters in Menlo Park, San Francisco, meet and chat with the people behind Facebook (Founder & CEO Mark Zuckerberg, COO Sheryl Sandberg, CPO Chris Cox, and a whole lot of awesome people), get crazy cool gadgets and have one of the best experiences of their lives.

Abby recounted that it was such a surreal feeling to be in the same room as the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Z was wearing his trademark look (jeans, sneakers, shirt and a big smile on his face), and had such a friendly, approachable aura and demeanor about him.  Not at all intimidating!  He shared stories about how the company started, its mission-vision, the ups and downs that come along, and their future plans.  Those invited also had the chance to ask him questions. When Mark Z was asked about achieving success and life’s “impossibilities”.  He said, “There’s a difference between impossible and things taking a really long time. Even if you’re not going to be able to do something in a short time period, if you care about something, you want to see the world to move into that direction…  So the best thing to do is just get started and not be discouraged.  It’s tough because this stuff is hard, or else people would’ve already done it.”

Abby Asistio got the chance to ask a question to one of the world’s 50 most powerful, successful women in business, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.  Aside from Alopecia awareness, Abby is also an active Real Beauty advocate with girls and women struggling with various insecurities, being so consumed by the world’s unrealistic and sometimes superficial standards of beauty.  So Abby asked Sheryl about her perception of it.  Sheryl said that beauty is just like success and that no one could really define it for you.  We are all unique.  We have different stories, dreams and desires. We should explore our own inner and outer beauty, believe and embrace that we are beautiful, and never allow anyone to tell us otherwise.

Mark capped off his talk by sharing their company philosophy with everyone present. Though already having over 1 billion subscribers, there are still 7 billion people all over the world without access to all the meaningful connections and information that Facebook brings.  One thing that the company stands by is that “things are always 1% completed”.  It keeps them grounded, reminding them that there is always so much work, growth and progress to be done, and so many people to reach out to and help.

Everything about the Facebook trip was overwhelming and inspiring according to Abby.  More than anything, it reminded her about “responsibility”.  We are all given our own platforms, in this case “accounts and connections”, to make a dent in this world.  It is up to us to become complacent and take these vehicles for granted, or maximize the opportunities and use them to make a positive impact in this generation.  Abby is grateful that Facebook has become a medium for her to communicate disease awareness and touch people beyond the confines of her tiny room and her country.  Abby is also glad that she and Rachel are two out of millions of people choosing to recognize the importance of social media in contributing to making this world a better place, and actually doing something about it.


Truly, God plans the best adventures and creates the most beautiful surprises.  Abby knows that she wouldn't have been handpicked for this if it weren't for Him, as well as the countless individuals who have cared and showed support for my advocacy.  Abby would like to leave a positive thought to everyone that we should really take the time to search for and identify our “purpose” – that one unique, very specific calling that is the result of our talents, dreams, desires, passions and experiences.  Once you find it, be faithful to it no matter how long or difficult the journey towards its fulfillment may be.  You’ll never know where it could lead to, how far it could go and how large it could grow.  Abby is also thankful that her campaign continues to spread and reach new heights and she is particularly grateful to Facebook for giving her this opportunity and to Novuhair, Nature's Answer to Hair Loss (www.novuhair.com), for always being so supportive of her advocacy and endeavors.  Abby is proud and honored to have represented the Philippines and the Alopecia community in this once-in-a-lifetime, international event.

Repertory Philippines presents it 79th final season play, a mini musical, Stepping Out.

This good-natured comedy written by Richard Harris concerns eight individuals from disparate backgrounds and with differing motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall. Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions, and showing little co-ordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness.

The play chronicles several months in the life of a beginning tap dance class. Each of the eight students has his or her own reason for joining. For instance, Maxine, a confident, fast-talking saleswoman (and former Ovaltine dancer), is there on doctor’s orders, while self-sacrificing Andy participates because it is the only thing she does for herself. Whatever the cause, they make a point of coming every week to chat, relax and, if they can manage to, learn a couple of dance steps.

Led by Mavis, their eternally patient instructor, a "has-been" Broadway performer who moves to another city and starts teaching tap dance lessons, and accompanied by the acerbic pianist Mrs. Fraser, the group of misfit students (who range from hopeless to competent) strive to master the basics of dance. But the steps and routines are just the background for the real focus of the play — the relationships and interactions of these ten very different people. By their final performance, not only have the class members developed some degree of skill, but they have also overcome the inhibitions, awkwardness and personality conflicts that have kept them out of sync with their lives.  They realize, through their dance classes what they can achieve.  Their newfound self-confidence changes their lives forever.

Most of the actors in this lively musical comedy are upper level Repertory actors and performers many of whom have won theatrical awards, specifically Bituin Escalante, Joy Virata, Shiela Francisco and Natalie Everette.

Directed by acclaimed director, Jaime Del Mundo and cleverly choreographed by Rose Borromeo, Stepping Out is an entertaining musical, with lyrics by Mary Stewart-David and music by Denis King.  The play’s writer, Richard Harris, says the inspiration for the play came from his late wife, Hillary Crane, who was a dancer, and suggested he visits a dance class in the event he gets inspired to write a play.  He went to the local church hall and happened to see a tap class in session.  Stepping Out won the award for best comedy in 1984 in the UK.  Years later, Liza Minelli appeared in the movie version.

Playing the roles of the other students are:  EJ Villacorta, David Shawn Delgado, Christine Flores, Raymund Concepcion, Cara Barredo, Sarah Facuri & Angela Padilla, the instructor.  The play runs from April 1-24, 2016 at OnStage, GreenBelt 1; Friday and Saturday evenings at 8PM, and Saturday and Sunday Matinees at 3:30PM.  Tickets available at TicketWorld at 891-9999 or log on to www.ticketworld.com.ph or call REP at 843-3570; www.repertoryphilippines.ph

The most dangerous program Docu-Series "60 Days In" starts April 9.

Crime + Investigation Network (CI) presents “60 Days In,” an unprecedented new, original docu-series following seven innocent participants who enter the dangerous world of incarceration at the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in an effort to expose internal issues and what really happens behind bars. As a result of the facility’s recent corrupt history, Sheriff Jamey Noel has devised a program where seven participants will live among the facility’s general population for 60 days without officers, fellow inmates, or staff knowing their secret. Around-the-clock cameras captured this unparalleled access in an effort to bring problems to light and give viewers a first-hand look as the participants adapt to unfamiliar and terrifying surroundings. “60 Days In” is a warts-and-all view of what life is like behind bars, through the eyes of people who have never been charged with a crime or done time.

This twelve-episode series premieres Saturday, April 9 at 9pm (PH) on CI.  CI is available on Sky cable Ch 98 , Dream Satellite Ch 35,  Cable link Ch 41 and Destiny Cable Ch 98.

“We are grateful to Sheriff Jamey Noel and the Clark County Jail for allowing our cameras to capture this unprecedented and trailblazing program. This provocative series will be an incredible addition the to rich non-fiction portfolio as the network continues to bring audiences cutting-edge immersive content,”says Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and Head of Programming for A&E Network.   

“After recently taking office, it was no secret that the Clark County Jail had problems and we needed to take quick control. The only way to truly understand what was going on in the jail was to implement innocent participants into the system to provide first-hand unbiased intelligence. These brave volunteers helped us identify critical issues within our system that undercover officers would not have been able to find. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the success of this inaugural program,”says Sheriff Jamey Noel.

Clark County Correctional Jailhouses approximately 500 prisoners, from inmates charged with drug dealing to first time offenders to capital murder. Over 12 episodes, the participants, who were hand selected by Sheriff Jamey Noel, are followed by hundreds of cameras planted throughout the jail exposing their journey.  Each participant’s reason for volunteering for this program varies, but they share the ultimate goal of leaving with a better understanding of the system –how it operates, its psychological effects,and wanting a part in exposing its larger impact on society. The sheriff is joined by Captain and Public Information Officer, Scottie Maples who helped provide training to all seven participants prior to being placed into the jail to help prepare them for their experience.

Would you be willing to give up your freedom and risk your life to better understand America’s polarizing jail system? The participants in this project have.

“60 Days In”is produced by Lucky 8 TV for A&E Network. Executive producers for Lucky 8 TV are Gregory Henry, Kimberly Woodard and Jeff Grogan. Executive producers for A&E Networks are Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, Drew Tappon and Brad Holcman.

Egg Theater Company presents, The Pillowman.

The Cast of The Pillowman.
After the brief festival run of its productions, Maniacal (Fringe Manila 2015) and Schism (Fringe Manila 2016), Egg Theater Company presents its first full-run production with a Filipino Translation of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman.

Winner of the 2004 Olivier Award for Best Play and Tony-Nominated in 2005 for Best Play, The Pillowman is about a writer in an unidentified totalitarian state being interrogated about his gruesome and macabre short stories that has inspired a series of child murders. The Pillowman is a dark comedy that boldly exhibits the riveting power of narrative and how storytelling and invention of fantastical tales is a basic human instinct. With the coming elections and the incessant specter of dictatorships and martial law, this production resonates with its exploration of the fine line between the freedom of an individual to tell a story and its impact on the security of society.
Palanca awardee and Egg Theater Company co-founder, George de Jesus III in translating and directing The Pillowman, remarks, “In examining the dark side of imagination and creativity, the play probes into how stories are created, the motivation that drives a writer to tell a story and the responsibility of a writer on the impact of what he has written. Put that against a totalitarian-state setting and we get a play that are by turns disturbingly funny and emotionally shocking. Given that the play is set in an unnamed totalitarian state, translating it into Filipino affords us not only in making it somehow familiar but it also further fuels the idea of it possibly becoming real.”

Egg Theater Company co-founder and producer adds, “But beyond being political, The Pillowman will make us take stock on the power of words and how it can affect other people. There’s a line by Katurian that says, "It's not about being or not being dead, it's about what you leave behind." I think it’s something that will resonate to anyone in the creative field and it’s what we want to accomplish with Egg Theater Company, to create Filipino productions that will linger in the minds of our audience.”
Co-presented by Pineapple Lab, The Pillowman features Gabs Santos as Katurian, Paolo O’Hara and Paul Jake Paule as Michal, Renante Bustamante as Tupolski and Acey Aguilar as Ariel.

The production will also feature original music and animated graphics by Joee Mejias.

The play will run from April 8-10 and 22-24, 2016, 8:00 PM at Pineapple Lab, 6071 R. Palma Street, Poblacion, Makati City.

RoxasRobredo, the Father and Mother for nation building.

One great program of the current administration is the Seal of Good Governance, a project of the late DILG Sec. Jessie Robredo, from what I heard the program aims to honor all Local Government Unit in many aspect of Good Public Service and in return they get more chances of applying for loans and grants that National Government can offer. This is in no consideration issue weather the local officials are from different political party or same with current administration.

The program change an impact on local system, on how they see the National post and appreciate it either you are from an opposition block. Many LGU including the province where I came from work hard for this and aim to be a winner to avail of its benefits.

I honestly salute this program and I believe this is being continued in the Department of Interior and Local Government, this should be improve and enhance better not just to uplift quality of public service, but to change the image of government offices, the bureaucracy and red tape attach to it.

As the election is fast approaching, many still are undecided whom to vote, there are many dirty laundry being washed in public, and intentions being revealed hand-in-hand. I have the feeling that Mar Roxas could be a Good father for this country, when he assume the office of DILG after what happen to Sec.Robredo, he continue to spearhead those program that the late secretary started, as father it’s a good traits that you don’t want your Childrens being divided not only in opinion but in heart.

Of Course, Leni Robredo as the wind beneath the wings of the late Secretary, is truly an epitome of woman today, who fights for equality and empowering them not to be just a woman in the house, but as a partner in building a family.

Amidst the war in politics, Roxas-Robredo tandem at the end of it still want peace and unity for nation building.

The fight for Equality, the Leni Robredo way.

Gender equality and Gender Sensitivity, are among the topics that needs to be address in this forthcoming Philippine Election, wherein leaders or aspirants should make a stand on issues against women, and the so called third sex.

In Bayang Matuwid, Vice Presidential bet Leni Robredo is identified as a pro bono lawyer in her region of Bicol, her achievement in public service is something to look for since she long fights for Gender Equality, she believe that no one in the male dominant society should neglect women of their rights to everything. At the end of the day, everyone must realize that they all come from their mother, and the mother is the one who take good care of them while the father is away looking for some bread.

Robredo’s background as a housewife to the late father of Naga City, and a practicing lawyer helping those in need of literacy on law, is a big factor for the Bayang Matuwid. It is clear and evident that this party value the voice of Women in nation building, thus make it qualified and pass for checking Gender Equality approval.

Sipet-Sipet Espesyal Bandillo Ng Palawan, Jan 13-19, 2003)

The Essence of A Woman, then and now.


“I think being a woman, by itself the very fact is a gift of God, the origin of a child is a mother and it’s a woman, and a woman is the one who shares love, and who share and shows a man what love, caring, sharing is all about, that is the essence of a woman.” – Sushmita Sen, Miss Universe 1994

In 1994 when Miss Universe held in Manila, a model from India stood out from the rest of the candidates from different countries, her triumph is considered an icon of feminist world specially from the countries of third world.

Sushmita Sen answer during the question and answer portion make waves even until this days, on how woman should be, and what woman do to prove its independence from man. Empowering woman now is always a battle cry in every nation, in every home that is broken, and in every person who always look up to their mother as the epitome of their selves.
In the Philippines, woman always play underdog but end up winning and gaining the trust of the people, it is proven in the politics where we place two women as President, and more Filipina aspire it until now like in this coming election.

One noticeable in the administration party dubbed as #BayangMatuwid of Presidential bet Mar Roxas, it’s obvious that he does value woman in empowering the nation, probably that’s the main reason he chooses Leni Robredo as his running mate. Robredo’s background as a simple housewife turn lawmaker is a best example on describing the Filipina woman of today, that amidst loss and trial, she stood still and ready to take over the family and his nation that once served by her departed husband. 


Women’s month is celebrated globally this March, with a culmination on the 8th of the month.
