Stars of the Month

Christine manalastas

To receive the Dramatic Arts Award in school is something to reckon with, not only for her talent in theatre and drama but her extraordinary spirit to support and help those in need gave her self-fulfillment and great pride in being a part of a worthy mission.

Her involvement with “We Are”, a group connected to a well known organization called Free the Children, Christine and friends helped raised money through fundraising events and send all monies to the unfortunate children in other countries.

But what caught my eye when I met this talented girl was her sweet, vocal voice.  I will not be surprised if she will be part of teenage pop music wave going around Toronto.  Her parents, Leodegario and Zenaida Manalastas are simply taking things slow and easy but are keen on focusing on developing Christine’s musical talent and career.

They surely take pride having this very talented daughter and one day, hopefully, will become a well-known entertainer not only in drama but in music as well.

“I enjoy performing skits and dramas for audiences,” Christine said, adding: “but singing to entertain people is my love.”

Graduating from St. Gabriel Lalement Catholic Elementary School in 2010, she is now dedicating her time in obtaining her High School Diploma with flying colors.

At a tender age, Christine knew what she wanted as a child.  She started listening and singing her favorite songs and performing musical numbers of her singing idols.  With support from her family and friends, she was invited to appear and perform at various community events, parties, and concerts held in Toronto and GTA.

She is a true talent indeed, I am proud to say one of the best vocals in the community today.  She deserved to be worthy of all praises and accolades.  Move over Lady Gaga, Christine is ready to take over!!!!!

Star of the Month

Quinton E. Guiam

To be extremely popular with teens and teenage girls due to his charm and boyish good looks, I am certain my Star this month will become a teenage heart throb for 2011.

I am pleased to feature Quinton E. Guiam as my Star of the Month this January 2011.

Although shy by nature, he is notorious for his wild onstage antics.  He entertains his friends and family with his intense moves performing comical dance steps and making funny faces of his favorite singer Justin Bieber.

“It definitely feels like I am on a roll when I make people laugh”, nods a refreshed and revitalized Quinton over a bottle of cold coke when I met him last month.  And he is only 14 years old.

Academically, he makes his parents proud.  But his dad, Ronnie, coached him to play basketball – hence, he developed his strength and agility that he wanted to be “the super-duper-star Michael Jordan”.  The only problem though, he still needs the height to become superb shooter but because of his competitive instinct, Quinton’s quick ball dribbling and speed impressed his school coach and now plays with the school team together with his brother Myles.

But his love of music brought him to become an accomplished flute player too.  He enjoys his flute because it brings joy and brightness to himself and to those people around him.

His skills as both a musician, athlete, or scholar will surely lead him to be successful  in life.  His parents surely instilled to him that life is full of challenges, inspiring him to be strong, honest, and dedicated.  But then again, with his female fans in school, I am quite certain, Quinton can downplay all the attentions the teen girls are giving him and hopefully he will continue to concentrate on his sport, music and school.  Proud parents are Ronnie and Faulein Guiam.

More power to you this 2011.
