You see her every morning at GMA Network’s Unang Hirit morning show as the ever sexy and pretty dance fitness diva. She helps jumpstart and energize your day thru different fitness workouts and non-stop zumba moves that can be very infectious it will make you join her to the beat.
Actress, host, fashion designer, dancer, fitness diva, certified Zin (zumba) instructor and hot momma Miss Regine Tolentino and her energetic RT dance crew entertained and at the same time encouraged us media and bloggers to stay fit and healthy thru dancing which she has been known for many years in a recent event hosted by FLANAX, manufactured by Taisho Pharmaceuticals Philippines Inc. And speaking of years, did you know that Flanax, a reliable pain reliever for join and body pains has been in the market for the past 35 years? And what better way to celebrate this medical milestone is thru dance to be led none other than the dance fitness diva herself, Ms. Regine! Her name would also be at the top of my personal choice list.
So this April 8 which is a perfect Saturday, Flanax brings to us, “Subok Ko na Yan” a 2-hour high-energy dance fitness party. Ms. Reg will kick-start the program along with Madelle Paltu-ob, a world-class performer and Zumba Education Specialist (ZES) plus dozens of instructors from all over the country. Other guests to expect is UPeepz, the winners and finalist of Bilbiling Mandaluyong. Not to mention, the highlight of the event is the launching of Regine Tolentino’s dance fitness album with instructional easy to follow video produced also by Flanax. Fellow ambassador and endorser, Richard “Ser Chief” Yap is also expected to be with Regine. Will he dance as well?
“Yes he has to!” Blurted out Ms. Regine during our brief sit down interview with her during the launch. “There will be a specially-made dance outfit for him which I designed. So he better not dance,” she laughs. And when that happens that we see Richard Yap dance, will be something to look forward to and I have a hunch that could go viral online!

Regine makes fitness dancing and zumba look all too easy despite all the sweat it can get. Hardly any trace of tiredness underneath that bright cheery smile and words of encouragement that everybody can indeed dance. “There is no such thing “I cannot dance” as an excuse,” according to Regine. “Anyboidy can react to a beat when one hears dance music.”
Dancers are also prone to injuries and physical pain which she is not spared of. “I take Flanax for my lower back pain and headache even on an empty stomach.” she shares.
Flanax is well known as a relief of mild to moderately severe pain with or without accompanying inflammation. Relief of pain associated with post-partum cramping anddysmenorrhea. Treatment of acute migraineattack.
What you will be getting is a cool event T-shirt, Regine Tolentino Dance Video CD, plus gift pack from participating brands. Do save the date, dress up as colorful as can be and do not miss the chance to dance your way to fitness and health with Regine and Richard!
See you all at the PICC Forum 1 and 2 starting 4pm on April 8. Don’t forget to bring extra clothes and lots of hydration because dancing will be non-stop!
Happy 35th Birthday FLANAX! Have a great dance party concert! ☺☺☺
I have always admired Ms. Regine’s skill and talent in dancing and the amount of passion she also puts in designing her creative costumes no wonder she is a go-to source by her fellow celebrity friends when it comes to their wardrobe needs. You can see more of her works by dropping by her boutique located along Valencia near corner N. Domingo Sts. in San Juan.
Even the mighty men in uniform can’t resist having their photo taken with Ms Regine.

Today’s digital devices and tools offer amazing opportunities for kids to imagine, invent and explore with technology—and perhaps most important of all, have fun! Over the years, we’ve worked closely with educators to build programs for kids to create through code, doodle their dreams, explore exotic locales with virtual reality, and even tour the Himalayas with a very friendly Yeti named Verne.. Today, we’re unveiling our latest project for kids—one that will give voice to their imaginations and transform their devices into playful and powerful tools for learning creative skills. It’s called Toontastic 3D.
With Toontastic 3D, kids can draw, animate and narrate their own adventures, news stories, school reports, and anything else they might dream up. All they need to do is move characters around on the screen and tell their story. It’s like a digital puppet theater… but with enormous interactive 3D worlds, dozens of customizable characters, 3D drawing tools, and an idea lab with sample stories to inspire new creations.
Like the original Toontastic (released in 2011 and widely praised by educators, kids, and parents around the globe), Toontastic 3D enables kids to build whatever they like—including book or science reports for school, design pitches, short stories and cartoons.
Toontastic 3D is available and free to download today for phones, tablets and select Chromebooks, on both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. We hope the app will empower kids to imagine, invent and explore while developing skills for the creative jobs of tomorrow—whether they dream of becoming a filmmaker, a teacher, a designer, a cartoonist, or just want to explore the boundaries of their imaginations.

When was the last time you said “Thank You” to someone?
I guess this written post is an overdue tribute in saying Thank You to a special someone in my life.
I have always expressed my Thank You’s and gratitude to my beloved Mama in private. And as far back as I can remember, I say it through love letters or small Post It notes then I would sneak it inside her bag, under her plate or even her blouse pocket. Once she finds out, she would always respond and give her feedback by writing me back or throwing me a big, tight Mom hug!
I guess I am more of a Thank You daughter than a saying I Love You person. Well, from time to time I do. But the impact of saying “salamat” is vast and wide and to be specific, I am extending an eternal Thank You to my everdearest Mama when it comes to travel. Because of her, I am able to go, see and enjoy places domestically and internationally. It is true that everytime you travel, appreciating the culture of a new place and territory and it’s people makes it even more exciting!
Mom is the most energetic travel bug and outdoorsy person I have known. Travel is her way of communing and being one with nature. And everytime she goes out of town it’s when she releases tension and stress from work and sometimes from stubborn daughters like me and my sister. Ouch!
A dedicated and passionate teacher even before I was born, Mom has gone to many out of town provinces thanks to the travel subsidy of their school which they call “Lakbay Aral”. So every summer, she and her co-teachers pick a really good destination and get there. My sister Michelle at times was able to tag along and join her in many wonderful trips to Palawan, Cagayan de Oro, Leyte, Bukidnon, Cebu, Bacolod and even Thailand which was her first ever international trip. And what a memorable trip to Bangkok they had from staying at a great hotel, haggled shopping, riding the “tuk tuk”, food trip galore and being impressed with a 747 boeing plane.
And speaking of airplanes, I came across this “Thank You” video campaign from Air Asia Philippines during my research online for a blog I was doing. The ad was a brief reminder especially this Yuletide season that we must indeed spread gratitude. That we should be grateful to whoever and whatever. Very touching isn’t it? I believe that appreciation be not limited to Christmas, but should be expressed for all time.
So thank you to my travel mate Mom, I was able to enjoy our unforgettable mother-daughter bonding when we went to Beijing, China! Too bad my sister was unable to come along because of work. Climbing the historic Great Wall of China was extra memorable with her and so were our street food tripping, thrift shopping and cold evening walks outside of our hotel. The best international travels we had with my sister were our trips to Hongkong and Singapore where we teased Mom to be the girlfriend of The Merlion because she literally did not want to leave the famous iconic symbol for some weird and strange reason after seeing it upclose. Well, that’s my Mama! ♥
She would always remind me to travel when budget allows and to travel while we were still young with family to better appreciate the many wonderful and awesome spots out there waiting to be seen. Speaking of budget during our family travels, she would collect our monthly share of a thousand pesos for like a year or six months depending where our itchy feet would take us. Our ever favorite destinations are Baguio and Boracay and for the latter, we would patiently ride the RoRo bus getting there which takes like 16 hours to do so. But once we have arrived, we kick back and relax and enjoy the best sunsets along the beach in between Stations 1 and 2. Su-weeeeet!!!
But Mama’s ultimate dream travel destination is the Holy Land and visit all the places Our Saviour went to. She dreams of even taking a relaxing cruise with my Dad. Everytime she see Bethlehem on TV or in cable, I would always here her say, “One day I am going to get there by the grace of God.” She never ceased praying.
In the past couple of years, Mama travelled less due to health reasons. She got herself into various medications. Good thing she took a lot of travel videos and would play them from time to time and it made her feel really good. There were so many accumulated clips my sister and I transferred them on CDs coming off the video cam. There are still a lot of short videos left in our cellfones waiting to be relocated.
October of last year I received an exclusive invite to travel down Coron, Palawan aboard a vessel that specializes in going to Tubbataha Reef. I have never been to Palawan before so I excitedly told Mama I am going there with a limited number of media people and the rest would be experienced divers. Mom had been there before but she was opposed to the idea of me joining. Maybe it was the mother instinct in her that she felt something was not good. But after convincing her not once but a few more times, she gave the green light. On the day of my departure for Batangas, I hugged her really tight and informed I shall share all my great Palawan experiences after five days.
Mom reminds me to always pray especially when travelling. Along the way en route to Batangas Pier she sent me several text reminders and to pray the rosary for safety and guidance to our destination. She’s really a loving and caring mother. And when our group finally arrived in Palawan after two days I was ecstatic and thankful for experiencing this side of paradise. Coron is such a beautiful piece of nature! Makes you want to stay there longer. I took lots of pictures and videos for me to show Mom afterwards.
But for some reason, fate did not allow me to share all my selfies, videos and wonderful and unforgettable adventures of Palawan to her. Mama went to heaven on the day our group arrived back to Batangas en route to Manila. I was crushed…so devastated and emotional to the point of breaking down in big sobs when my sister broke the sad news on the phone. I was in denial she was gone. Moreso, I was away but on my way back to her when she left. I was really looking forward to hugging her and sharing all the stories comparing notes of beautiful Palawan. If only she waited for me much longer…
That was more than a year now. It still hurts everytime I would recall that very bittersweet moment. The pain of losing someone you love dearly will never go away. Her personal travel videos are more meaningful and seeing her so happy in them makes more sense now. As family we miss her so much! I still cry a bucket everytime I watch the vids.
My Mom…My Travel Angel has gone to the Holy Land. And tomorrow or later, she’s at Vatican City or on top of the Eiffel Tower or sipping a juice or two by the shoreline of her favorite beach spot in Boracay…
Thank You Mama…for everything… and for the lovely gift of travel which I will continue to do because by visiting and exploring more places, you are very much alive! Love youuuuuu!!! ♥♥
