The atmosphere in the GMA compound is filled with excitement. It seems like the Kapuso Network is busy prepping up a big and colorful surprise for the viewers.
Numerous posts on Instagram show the biggest Kapuso celebrities and news personalities together recently, wearing vibrant outfits and beaming with smiles.
In an Instagram post by Aiai de las Alas, she shared her appreciation for having close friends Jennylyn Mercado and Marian Rivera. She captioned, ‘‘Ang 2 sa peborit ko sa industriya si queen marian aka kambal and queen jen aka julia roberts of d phil (para saken) — busy kami today hehe kaming mga kapuso .. makikita nyo din yun soon.”
Glaiza De Castro, on the other hand, posted her photo on Instagram with Encantadia Sang’gres Gabbi Garcia and Sanya Lopez together with Mikee Quintos.
In a post by Solenn Heussaff, she is shown effortlessly looking glamorous with Heart Evangelista, Megan Young, Joyce Pring, and Iya Villania-Arellano.
Joyce Pring, meanwhile, posted another version of the photo with the caption, “Today on…how to publicly humiliate yourself and also find joy in it: join a photo with the most regal women and pretend like it’s [no big deal],” which her followers disagreed on and commented that her beauty is also at par with the gorgeous ladies.
In response to Joyce’s post, Heart Evangelista reposted the photo saying, “YES, you can sit with US! #WomenUnite,” which proved how endearing she is on and off camera.
Suzi Entrata also shared a set of groufies as she ‘fangirled’ on her fellow Kapuso personalities. “Ang saya!!! managed to get pics with some of our network’s brightest from both entertainment and news and public affairs,” she wrote.
In a story shared by Rafael Rosell, he took a selfie video showing some of the artists during a break from what appeared to be a shoot. He was shown getting blinded either by the bright lights in the set or probably by the brightness of the stars that he’d seen in one room. “So many celebrities! So many celebrities!!!,” he quipped.
Employees were also spotted wearing colorful shirts all in one day and they, too, must be part of the latest Kapuso offering.
Stay tuned, mga Kapuso!

BEC-TERO Music Thailand and Ivory Music and Video Philippines team up in bringing Asia the newest and boldest musical collaboration to hit the musical scene.
Philippines’ very own Dance Princess Maja Salvador and Thailand’s most adored pop singer and pianist Tor+Saksit join forces in their newest single “Falling Into You”.
With her successful teleserye on the side, Wildflower star Maja is surely on a roll as she dives in one of the biggest milestones in her career.
September last year, Maja flew all the way to Bangkok to meet and record the single with Thai heartthrob Tor. Coincidentally, this is Maja’s first time to collaborate with a foreign artist, and Tor’s first time as well to record an English single. Recently, Tor was in the Philippines for the promo and music video shoots.
While this dream partnership is a lot of firsts for both Maja and Tor, their passion and love for singing has always been a common ground. The single was recorded in Thailand’s finest and state of the art Karma Studios in Bang Saray, south of Pattaya. Victor Lau, a well-known musical producer and composer from Taiwan who has worked with Meteor Garden’s Vaness Wu, Cyndi Wang, and more, produced Maja and Tor’s most awaited single.
Penned by Tor himself with co-writers, the song highlights Tor’s smooth, swooning piano playing skills and vocals, complimented by her MAJAsty’s sultry, emotion-filled delivery.
Now released globally, “Falling Into You” will capture the hearts not just of Filipino and Thai fans, but every music lover all around Asia and the world.

Inigo Pascual spreads his wings from being a performer to becoming a veejay as the leading music channel in the country, MYX, officially announces the singing sensation as the new member of the MYX Squad.
Inigo joins MYX’s roster of VJs -- Robi Domingo, Sharlene San Pedro, Ai dela Cruz, Turs Daza, Sunny Kim, and Donny Pangilinan – in their daily task of hosting various shows and introducing the latest in the music scene.
The 20-year old singer revealed that it has always been his dream to become a MYX VJ, even when he was still living abroad.
“As a kid I was a fan of MYX already. So when I first became a guest celebrity VJ, I really told my handler, ‘One day I’ll be a MYX VJ!’ and it’s happening. It’s finally here, and I’m so excited to meet the MYX family and to be able to be a VJ for you guys,” gushed the “ASAP” Jambayan artist.
He may be new to the MYX Squad, but he’s definitely not new to the music scene—especially after topping various music charts with his hit single “Dahil Sa’Yo” last year.
Passionate about OPM, the new MYX VJ aims to promote local music more to his generation.
“If we want our music to be loved in other places, we should love it first in our own country. How are you gonna bring it to another country if you don’t even love your own?” said the young performer.
He also revealed that he’s excited to work with close pal Donny, and the ever-bubbly Sunny as he shares the same love for K-Pop.
Catch VJ Inigo in the following shows: MYX International Top 20, Saturdays at 6pm; MYX Daily Top 10 Pinoy Edition, Thursdays at 1am, 7am, 12pm, and 8pm; and on MYX Versions, Pop MYX, Pinoy MYX, and My MYX. MYX is available via SKYcable channel 23.
