“Isang Araw” The Movie Tearjerks Manileños and Caviteños


Moviegoers in Metro Manila and Cavite dotingly expressed bliss after watching “Isang Araw” (One Day) during the movie tour held April 2 and 11 at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City and at Animo Center of De La Salle University in Dasmariñas, Cavite respectively.

Lanie Mejia, a movie enthusiast from Alabang told UNTV news that she felt mixed emotions while watching the movie, “Malungkot na masaya. Sa pelikulang ito marami tayong matututunan. Maraming aral na mapapanood tayo. Masayang masaya at nandoon din ang pagiyak.”  (It is a mixed feeling of angst and joy. We can learn so much from this movie. There is a manifold of lessons that we can get from this movie. It is very enjoyable and a tearjerker.)

Sharon Respecia from Las Pinas sublimely said, “Naubos na ang tissue ko kakaiyak. Sobrang nakakaiyak talaga. In reality nangyayari talaga. Talagang tumatagos sa puso.” (I ran out of tissue paper because I can’t stop crying. It is really a tearjerker. These things really happen in reality. It really touches the heart.)

“Ang napakagandang natutunan ko doon, iyong point na si Kuya Daniel dahil sa sobrang pangaapi na ginawa sa kanya, gusto na niyang gumanti. Tapos, ang pinakamahalagang parteng napakinggan ko iyong biglang nagsalita si Brother Eli Soriano na tinuro niya kay Kuya Daniel Razon na ang pagganti ng masama walang mabuting maitutulong iyon. Kaya ipinakita niya roon na sa huli ang pinakamaganda pa ring iganti sa paggawa ng masama ay ang paggawa ng mabuti”, Richard Rivera fleetingly uttered the wisdom he gained from the movie. (The good thing I learned from it was when Kuya Daniel was almost on the verge of revenge because of the extreme oppression he experienced. The best part was hearing Brother Eli teaching him that retribution to evil works serve no good. Thus, Kuya Daniel, in the end still showed that the best action to reciprocate evil is doing good deeds.)

Ophelia Imperial excitedly voiced her appreciation on the said movie. “May aral. Okay lahat. Maganda. Dapat nga ipalabas iyan sa sinehan saka ilagay sa DVD. Bibili kami.” (There is a wisdom from it. It was superbly done. It is a good movie. It should be shown in theaters nationwide and put on DVD’s. We will surely buy a copy of it.)

Cliff Ibañes, resident from Cavite exclaimed, “Magandang aral na ating nakita at narinig sa pamamagitan ng pelikula ni Kuya Daniel na Isang Araw Lang.” (We have seen and heard prodigious insights from the movie “Isang Araw” by Kuya Daniel.) “Kapag hindi nakapanood, napakalaki ang nawala sa kanilang buhay.”, he also added.(Those who would miss it will surely miss a big portion of their lives.)

The movie opening at the dome was graced by OPM singers Shanne Velasco, Beverly Caimen and Gerald Santos who amused the crowd with their heartfelt rendition of the songs composed by Kuya Daniel Razon entitled “Alay Sa’Yo”, “Pangarap ng Puso” and “Pagasa ng Puso”.

La Verdad Christian College Scholars: Advocates of Truth and Good Deeds, 100 Graduates, Unique Addition to the Workforce and Life as a Whole


Nearly 100 scholars of La Verdad Christian College (LVCC) in its Caloocan branch graduated last March 21, 2014 in Caloocan City.

Made possible through the joint efforts of UNTV and the Members Church of God International, LVCC-Caloocan has successfully commenced the school’s third batch of graduates since its inauguration in June 15, 2010.

UNTV Radio La Verdad 1350 Station Manager Ms. Annie Rentoy delivered the inspirational message during the event. She pointed out that these graduates are a unique addition to the workforce and to life as a whole because they are graduates of LVCC.

The first Philippine private school to offer fully free education to youths from less privileged families, the institute made schooling truly worthwhile by providing free tuition with amenities such as free lunch, uniforms, supplies and miscellaneous fee exemption.

The student grantees were assessed according to their skills and family economic status rather than their scholastic records like what most other learning institutions follow.

This quarter’s graduates earned for themselves Mass Communication Technology and Nursing Assistant diplomas.

“Now, here I am standing before a crowd of hopefuls─ the young ones who will embark on their own unique journeys,” Ms. Rentoy said during her congratulatory speech at the graduation ceremony.

La Verdad has also provided the same level of community service to as a far as Ghana since 2011 where 115 kindergarten and primary school level children are currently enrolled in its African branch.

“Remember that you were honed by no less than wisdom that is based from truth,” added Ms. Rentoy, “You are a product of unwavering love and compassion of the two blessed men, Brother Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon, who are behind this honorable institution.”

Ms. Rentoy concluded that LVCC graduates are not just simple workforce but advocates of truth and good deeds.

Malacanang Patriots Wins over HOR Solons, MMDA Black Wolves Wounds Judiciary Magis


The Malacañang Patriots roughed up to roll into the next phase of the UNTV Cup Season 2 tournament. The Patriots swept a win over the House of Representatives Solons forcing them out of the tourney with an 88-76 victory on March 30 at the Ynares Sports Arena.

The Patriots burnt the Solons‘ efficacy level early and ruled the first half with a 4-point advantage, 40-36.

Ex-pro Gerard Francisco and 6’6 center Arnold Gamboa from the Solons fought back and tried to push for a huge slant in the second half. Francisco surged 19 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. Gamboa also scored 19 points in the ballgame.

However, the Patriots used a mighty full-court press to pound the Solons into shingles in the final salvo with a whopping 12-pt lead win.

Forward Player Paul Anthony Yamamoto came up with a colossal performance of dynamic shots and playmaking which propelled the unstoppable momentum of  Malacañang Patriots.

“Actually, alam namin na hindi mahirap na kalaban ang Solons dahil kapag iko-compare namin mga lamang ng kalaban sa kanila very close. So, I know must-win din sila dito. So, kahit paano pinaghandaan din namin ang Solons.”, Yamamoto told in the interview. (“Actually, we know that the Solons are not so difficult to go against because, as compared to other teams we have played against, their team spirit is very close. So, I know that they have the same must-win goal. So, we have prepared ourselves for the Solons in our own small way.”)

Meanwhile, the MMDA Black Wolves aggrieved Judiciary Magis with a robust wave of attack in the second match of the double-header, 73-71.

The Magis line-up was defenseless without Don “The Hammer” Camaso in the ballgame who is currently suffering an injury.

“Takbuhan lang talaga sa buong team namin kasi iyon ang laban namin sa kanila. Di kami pwedeng makipagsabayan ng slow down ka pababa. Kailangan takbuhan talaga.”, said Sanders who impressively bombarded the other team with 27 points, 16 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in this match.  (The team’s only fighting chance is through a swift race across the courts. We cannot slow down the pace. We really needed to rush the race.)

MMDA Black Wolves pinned a binary win-loss record in the team rankings, 2-2, similar with LGU Vanguards.

With Judiciary Magis losing scenario, AFP Cavaliers stepped up in the Group A Team Standings and hitched the Magis in the first-place, 3-1.
