“Be careful what you wish for.”

Another wish came true for a successful businesswoman who is also Beautederm Corporation President and CEO Rhea Anicoche-Tan as she formally welcomed actress Bea Alonzo as the official endorser of its newest product Etre Clair Refreshing Mouth Spray.
“I admire Bea,” said Rhea. “It has always been a dream of mine to collaborate with her as an endorser of Beautéderm. At first it really seemed to be a farfetched dream because of the humble beginnings of the company so my team and I worked very hard until the day finally came when it became a reality. It took me 11 years to make my dream come true and Bea is truly worth the long wait. It was such a joy to deal with Bea and her manager, Ms. Shirley Kuan. She is so professional and so humble – she is everything that I imagined her to be. This is truly a wonderful birthday gift to me.”
Bea is equally happy now that she is part of the successful brand name. “It feels great! I’ve always been curious about the brand. I like how it progressed and how its family grew so fast,” said Bea. “A lot of my friends are part of the Beautéderm family, and I’m happy that I can finally endorse this brand alongside them.”
Bea further revealed that she is inspired after finally meeting Rhea for the very time, “I was glad to finally meet her in our shoot. I like being around strong and empowered women. I am so excited for our future campaigns. These days, I use Etre Clair all the time, and I suggest for everyone to use it as often to protect ourselves, especially in these difficult times. Plus, it is organic and mint flavored, it will leave your mouth feeling fresh,” said Bea.

Actor, TV Host and government official Arnel Ignacio attended the donation of a flood control system for the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). Arnelli showed support for the meaningful project for this major hospital that experiences heavy flooding especially during the rainy season.
Arnel revealed that his house in Cainta suffered heavy flooding during Typhoon Ulysses.

“Nakakaiyak at napaka meaningful na may tutulong na sa major areas natin para maiwasan ang pagbaha. Hindi biro na pasukin ng malaking baha ang bahay mo at masira ang mga gamit na pinag hirapan mo ipundar. Lalo na sa ganitong area ng PGH na marami ang umaasa ng tulong dito kaya napakalaking bagay nito na sinusuportahan natin” said Arnel.

The event was also attended by officials of the Flood Control Asia led by its Chairman Dr Andreas Kluppe, Rep Crystal Bagatsing and German Consul Anke Reffeinstuel, Fatima Usi and PGH Director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi. Flood Control Asia will provide flood protection for PGH.

The actress also said that her career is her top priority and her engagement with fiance Perry Choi, who is always supportive of her career, can wait for now.
