It did not come as a surprise when we heard Calayan Surgicentre signed a young popular actor to be its next endorser for its popular skin care and body sculpting services.
And guess who this young actor is?
It’s none other than Sam Concepcion, the singer we all saw grow up from a cute teenager who won in the Big Division of ABS-CBN’s Little Big Star in 2006 to a rock ‘n’ roll performer that he is now.
Concepcion, now 23 (he was born on Oct. 17, 1992), has come to terms with the demands of show business, among which is to have a nice looking complexion and well-sculpted physique.
On Oct. 30, Concepcion treated his fans to a concert called Samuel Lawrence and the Defenders of Dance at the SM SkyDome in SM North Edsa. Naturally, the Sam Concepcion fans and groupies were all there cheering and screaming for him.
In an interview after the photo shoot in a studio in Makati, Concepcion said, “I am no longer the teenager you have known. I have grown older and I have to keep up with the demands of the business,” when asked why he accepted the offer of Drs. Manny and Pie Calayan to part of the growing roster of celebrity endorsers/clients of the clinic.
“I don’t have much time to spend in making my body look good, and Calayan has this body sculpting service that I guess jives with my schedule.”
Concepcion is in the new ABS-CBN soap You’re My Home along with Richard Gomez, Dawn Zulueta, Jessy Mendiola, and JC de Vera. He is also promoting his album Infinite though released in August 2013 remains one of the best-selling CDs both online and at music and video stores.
Concepcion said that with Calayan Surgicentre he is hoping his fans will support him for the gradual transformation of his body.
Initially, he will be treated to a series of skin care services that will improve his already fine-looking complexion and then the Calayans will do the body sculpting.
Don’t be surprised if in the next months we would see Sam Concepcion’s nicely sculpted torso in magazines and editorial spreads.
Considered a household name in the industry of cosmetic surgery, Calayan Surgicentre Corporation® is definitely on the right path in providing people top of the line services to boost one’s confidence and personality.
Founders Manny and Pie Calayan believe that people could benefit from their years of training and experience in providing them with services that are geared toward opportunities for a better “you”.
While Calayan Surgicentre Corporation® is owned and operated by Doctors Manny and Pie Calayan, is also supported by top of the line surgeons, dermatologists and other medical practitioners. It caters to people from both northern and southern parts of the Metro through its clinics in Timog and in Makati.
Among the services that have become popular among its clients include the doublo ultra non-surgical facelift, melawhire glutathione drip, maxihair laser for hair loss and falling hair.
The couple said that the clinic is expanding in 2016 by opening two new branches one in Alabang and another in Baguio.
“This makes our services accessible to more clients, from down south to up north,” Doc Manny said.
Dr. Pie said, “All the services the clinic offers are guaranteed to be safe. Our technicians are well trained and most often, Manny and I personally attend to the clients.
Calayan has more services other than those mentioned earlier, and these are
derma and laser services, like vaser lipo, breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. If you are not sure what procedure you want to avail, the clinic also offers free consultation until Nov. 15. And there’s an ongoing promotion on all the services. I guess it’s time for you to visit any of the two branches of Calayan Surgicentre. If you’re from the south you can go to the Makati Branch, Suite 1701 Medical Plaza Makati, Dela Rosa Street cor. Amorsolo Street,Legaspi Village, Makati City, Philippines; Phone: +63 (2) 845 0015

Did I tell you the couple is also going to open a Calayan branch in Okayama, Japan next year? Oh well, Filipinos there don’t really have to fly back for the beauty services they have been used to when they’re in town.
Tweens’ reunion at Bea Binene’s Debut
It looked like a reunion of sorts for former GMA Network tween stars Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, Joyce Ching, Kristoffer Martin, Derrick Monasterio, Joshua Dionisio, Louise delos Reyes, Krystal Reyes and Ken Chan at Bea Binene’s debut party recently.
The now adult stars of the Kapuso network wasted no time in taking cameraphone photos of themselves.
What surprised most of them was the appearance of Alden Richards whom they thought couldn’t make it because of his very hectic schedule these days.
The actor now referred to as Pambasang Bae nearly stole the thunder from Bea Binene who was celebrating her 18th birthday at Maynila Ballroom of the Manila Hotel.
The program had started yet everyone behind the celebration had no inkling if Richards would be arriving..
Bea thought her 18 roses would pass without Alden but she was stunned to hear the master of ceremonies called the actor’s name for her last dance.
“Hindi ka na ma-reach,” Bea ribbed Alden while they were dancing to the song, “God Gave Me You”. Bea was already emotional as she didn’t expect Alden would be there on her birthday.
From Banana Split to Banana Sundae
Next Sunday afternoon, ABS-CBN changes its programming to accommodate a reformatted edition of its gag show formerly known as Banana Split. By that time it will be known as Banana Sundae.
Making the show wilder and more fun-filled are the additions to the show including Jessy Mendiola and returning comedian Pokwang.
The Banana Sundae cast has been making people laugh during their late night forays, most notably with mainstays Angelica Panganiban’s and Jason Gainza’s segments “Krissy TV” and “Ihaw na.” With a new timeslot and more quirky segments, Sunday viewers will definitely have a good laugh while still having their regular serving of well-loved portions like “Kantaranta,” “Baby Luv,” and “Make Me Rap.”
The other mainstays of the show include John Prats, Ryan Bang, Sunshine Garcia, Aiko Climaco, JC De Vera, Pooh, Jobert Austria, and Badji Mortiz.
Bobot Mortiz is still directing the show with Linggit Tan-Marasigan as the executive-in-charge of production.
Same but different
After Levi Strauss had perfected the art of creating the perfect five-pocket blue jeans, he proceeded to make what would be the iconic denim Trucker Jacket.
Through the decades, the Trucker Jacket has been worn sans sleeves, painted, with flower patches, embroidered, chopped, re-sewn and deconstructed.
Guys and gals wore it. Cowboys and party girls wore it in different ways. The jacket became a symbol for just about anything the wearer wanted it to be.
The Trucker has undergone subtle modifications, the most “drastic” being the addition of hand pockets in the 1980s. There have also been collaborations with other brands that have mildly tweaked the designs and fabrics but the core design has remained the same.
Fans of the Levi’s Trucker Jacket will love the new Down Trucker Jacket for Men and Women, which has all the authentic details of the Original Trucker but with 100% goose down for maximum warmth. Imagine the look of a classic trucker jacket outside with warm insulation inside. This is perfect for traveling to colder countries this holiday season as the jacket can be compressed for easy packing.
The Levi’s Down Trucker Jacket is made from 100 percent cotton (Midweight Denim) with down insulation inside the jacket. Other features include button front closure and button chest pockets.
Just like the five- pocket jean, the Levi’s Trucker Jacket does the job and does it well. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Except if you’re making it perfect for the season.
