Heart, Solenn, Bianca and Rhian talk about Sosy Problems

Q: What are your characters in the movie?

SOLENN: “Ako dito si Margaux, I am half-Filipina and half-French.  Wala na akong dad and my mom is married to a French ambassador.  Super super yaman kami.  Actually, wala naman akong masyadong problema except that lagi lang akong in competition with my bestfriend, Claudia (Heart Evangelista).  Bukod sa amin, yung mga mommies din namin are competiting with each other.”

RHIAN: “My character’s name is Lizzie, and she’s the richest in the group.  She’s very flashy; she’s never subtle.  She likes to flash her money around.  She’s also bossy.  Her problem is actually more of an internal problem.  Her friends and family just give up on her because she’s really a brat and she’s very annoying.  She finds herself by finally living a life of simplicity.  The funny part in it is that when you take someone who doesn’t know how to do what common people do and you put them in a situation where they have no choice, like Solenn in Survivor (laughs).”

BIANCA: “My character’s name is Danielle.  Yung pamilya ko dito ay naghihirap na kasi my dad who is a former politician hinuli na ng pulis dahil sa mga kasalanan niya.  Kahit naghihirap na yung family ko I still try to keep up with my “sosy” friends.   Aside from the whole family issue, my character is also the one who is looking for love but for the wrong reasons: I’m looking for somebody rich to fall in love with me to solve my family’s financial problems.  Mabait pa rin naman si Danielle kasi ang iniisip pa rin niya ay yung family niya.  But in the end, she realizes that love is not like that pala.”

Green Cross School Crashers reaches out to parents, promotes dengue defense

Almost all parents would want their kids to get the best education.  No wonder then that despite the high tuition and countless school expenses, a number of parents still strive hard to enroll their kids in what they believe as the best school.  These are parents who place a high value on education because they believe that the education their children receive will set the groundwork for the kids’ success. 

Berlin, a parent of Gabriel Maynigo from the Diliman Preparatory School (DPS), is more than thankful that her 10-year old boy is academically excelling in class.  Just last quarter, Gabriel achieved second honors in fourth grade.  But what Berlin is more grateful for is the school’s effort in providing quality education, and caring for DPSian’s health interests.

Sosy Problems: Meet the Sosy girls

On December 25, the country's hottest "it" girls Heart Evangelista, Solenn Heussaff, Bianca King and Rhian Ramos come together for Sosy Problems, the glossiest entry of GMA Films to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

Sosy Problems

Four girls, rich and famous, may have the most expensive pairs of shoes, high-end designer bags and the life that every girl wanted - but behind the glitz and glamour are the struggles and differences that they have to face.

In the story, Sosy girls' tambayan, The Polo Club, is in danger of being torn down. The new owners of the exclusive club want to build a "yaya mall" - which for the girls is not at all a Sosy plan.

Villar Foundation: Parol Festival at Las Pinas City!

Before the inauguration and blessing of Villar SIPAG, some of the guests also witnessed the yearly Parol Festival of Las Pinas, which is known as 'the lantern capital of Metro Manila'. It was the first time that the Parol Festival was held at its new venue—the Villar Social Institute of Poverty Alleviation & Governance (SIPAG). It used to be held at the St. Joseph Bamboo Organ Church.

The festival is the brainchild of the Former Congresswoman of Las Piñas, Cynthia Villar. In 2007, she encouraged the city’s magpaparols (lantern-makers) to organize themselves into the ‘Samahang Magpaparol
ng Las Piñas’. And to support them, Mrs. Villar set up the Las Piñas Parol Center, which serves as a training area for the lantern-makers.
