PASAY CITY, Philippines — Celebrity cast of Isang Araw, Ikatlong Yugto agree that the film is a must-watch for its extraordinary theme.

Veteran Actor and Rescuer Jeffrey Santos expressed, “Hindi kasi lahat ng pelikula yun ang binibigay eh, normally ang lesson ng pelikula is human nature. It’s very seldom na word of God…not many Filipino movies are done like that. It’s a good thing na si Kuya Daniel nag-iisip ng ganung klaseng forte.”

(Because not all movies offer the [Words of God]. Normally, the moral lesson of a movie is about human nature. It’s very seldom that the Word of God is the main topic… not many Filipino movies are done like that. It’s a good thing that Brother Daniel Razon thought of making this kind of film.)

Budding actress Michelle Vito commended, “Dapat naman talaga siguro na sa lahat ng pinapanuod natin may about God kasi yun ang maganda sa pakiramdam, eh. And kung galing talaga kay God, yung mga message galing sa Biblia, yun ang tamang lesson na binibigay sa atin.”

(Maybe it really should be like that that what we watch have contents about God because that is what can make us feel good. And if the content is really from God, the messages are based from the Holy Bible, and that is the right lesson we can get.)

RELATED: ‘Isang Araw:Ikatlong Yugto’ is a moral booster to the country’s police force, says PNP 

Each of them shared the lesson they’ve learned from being part of the production and after watching the final version of the movie that was written, starred and directed by Kuya Daniel Razon.

“Respeto pa rin sa mga magulang dapat andoon pa rin,” Ms. Jackie Aquino shared one of the lessons she learned.

(Respect for parents, should always be there.)

Santos added, “Yung simplest na eksena nabibigyan ng aral ng moral values. I am thankful and blessed na makasama ako sa pelikulang tulad noon na nagpapasa ng ganung klaseng aral.”

(Even  the simplest scene in the movie, you can get moral values. I am thankful and blessed that I became  part of a movie that imparts life lessons.)

Around 2,000 spectators flocked the sponsors’ night at Marriott Grand Ballroom on Tuesday to witness the premier showing of the movie.

Everyone was overwhelmed to have first viewing and some even shared how the film has touched them.

Audience Kevin Vitug explained, “Yung mga turo sa kanya ng tatay na kailangan mo talagang magpakababa, hindi mo kailangang maging mayaman, pakinggan mo lang yung sinasabi ng magulang mo sa’yo—tumatak sa akin yun.”

(The lessons on humility that his father has taught him, wherein you don’t necessarily have to be rich, you just need to listen to the teachings of your parents — that stood out for me.)

While another viewer, Mark Talagtag, shared, “Yung isang natutunan ko doon yung kay Wendell at Lara na hindi mo maaayos ang isang bagay pag parehas kayong tama. Minsan kailangan kunin mo yung pagkakamali para magkasundo kayo para malaman nyo ang tama.”

(One thing I learned from the characters of Wendell and Lara is that, you cannot fix an argument if both of you claim to be right. Sometimes you need to admit you’re wrong to patch things up.)

And Reyna Ladimora shared, “Palaging may takot sa Dios kahit sa pulubi dapat laging may awa.”

(We should always be God-fearing and always have a heart for the poor.)

The Isang Araw film director, writer and lead actor Kuya Daniel Razon said, the movie offers messages that will open the minds of children, parents, and even ordinary people to things that seem to have been forgotten by many in today’s society.

“Kasi ang tao kapag may takot ka sa Dios at may kinikilala kang Dios, at kinikilala mo ang Dios na makapangyarihan sa lahat, alam mo na nakikita ka Niya kahit saan ka nandoon at Siya ang nakakaalam ng puso at isip mo, so ito ay isang bagay na dapat gagawin mo yung tama may nakakakita man sa’yo o wala dahil He is always watching.”

(When a person has  fear of God and acknowledges God and that God is the Almighty, and you know that God sees what you do all the time, and that God knows the content of your heart and mind, this will discipline you to do good with or without people around because you know that God is always watching.) — GRACE CASIN / UNTV News and Rescue

Wish Bus in Hollywood, to help introduce OPM talents to international scene

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, January 18th, 2018

 

Last January 15, 2017 (Monday), Kuya Daniel Razon introduced to the crowd the new Wish Bus which will station at Hollywood, USA

MANILA, Philippines – Wish 107.5 stays true to its commitment to be Filipino talent’s gateway to the world.

Through Wish FM’s innovations, foreigners were wowed by the singing prowess of OPM artists.

Wishclusive videos taken on the Pambansang Wish Bus continue to gain worldwide attention through the Wish Youtube channel.

It now has almost 2 million subscribers and over 800 million views.

And now, aiming to further promote Filipino talent, Wish FM is set to bring the Wishclusive performances abroad through the popular Wish Bus.

“At this point, I would just like to let you know that in these coming months, we are already preparing for another big leap and we have that already. We have traveled our Wish Bus from New York to Los Angeles. Now it’s already in Hollywood and waiting for the inauguration,” said Wish creator, Kuya Daniel Razon.

“After this Hollywood thing, we’re looking forward to having also our Wish Bus in Europe,” he added.

OPM artists were amazed at the concept of a traveling Wish bus.

“If halimbawa, magkaroon ng Wish Bus sa ibang bansa and then magf-fly sila ng mga OPM artists doon tapos iikot sa iba’t ibang bansa, magandang idea iyon. Kasi sobrang unique eh kahit iyong mga foreigner’s pag narinig nila yung… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ Parang sobrang nacucurious sila tapos hindi pa puchu-puchu iyong quality.  Kung gaano kaganda iyong quality sa regular na studio, kung hindi pa mas maganda parang pwede mo na silang i-compare. So nakakaproud na meron tayong nap-produce na ganun kaya sana matuloy yun,” said popular “soul supreme” singer, KZ Tandingan.

(If for example, there will be a Wish bus in other countries and they will fly OPM artists there and tour different countries. That’s a good idea because it’s so unique. Even foreigners, whenever they hear… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ they seem so curious and the quality is very good.)

“Ang dami pong Filipino artists abroad that are just so great. Sa states pa lang po sobrang naguumapaw na din lahat ng talents ng Filipinos there and so to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries. It’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created,” said rising singer/song writer, Moira dela Torre.

(There are a lot of Filipino artists abroad that are just so great… So to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries, it’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created.)

“For us to be able to bring Wish to other countries and to reach our kababayans there and more, sobrang laking ano nun (it’s such a big deal). It’s an honor of course to be a part of this family and it’s so big for Wish. I’m only very excited, I’m looking forward for what else is in store for everybody kaya go. Congratulations po Kuya Daniel,” said stage actress and recording star Morissette Amon.

Wish 107.5 makes various innovations in music industry

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, January 12th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines – It has just been 3 years since Wish 107.5 started its operations yet it has become a favorite of many music fans

Because of its innovations and one-of-a-kind concepts, it has received numerous awards and gained attention here and abroad.

Among these is the very popular Wish bus which was introduced during the station launch.

The Wish Bus, the first and only FM booth on wheels, is the brainchild of veteran broadcaster and humanitarian, Kuya Daniel Razon.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities used to produce your favorite Wishclusive videos. Because of its uniqueness, this roving music hub has never failed to catch the attention of commuters.

“Wish 107.5 Bus was actually conceptualized because we have noticed that here in the metropolis, traffic is really terrible. So one of the things that we would like to introduce is something that would assuage the feeling of boredom and also the feeling of going crazy in the traffic jam,” Razon said.

The bus regularly visits different parts of the country to provide free mini-concerts of promising Filipino and international artists —and soon we’ll be able to see it roaming abroad.

“Gusto namin nga po talaga, mas marami yung Wish bus namin. So naumpisahan na natin na naicustomize na natin yung sa Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is ma-i-showcase po ang ating Filipino artists all over the globe,” Razon added.

(We really wanted to replicate our Wish bus so we have started to customize one in Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is to showcase our Filipino artists all over the globe.)

Among the popular programs of the station is Wishcovery which showcases the talent of aspiring singers in the country.

It is the biggest online singing competition in the country today.

Apart from these innovations, Wish 107.5 is considered unique for being an FM station with a heart.

“What we wanted to do is to help yung mga nandoon sa (those in the) music industry. And by opening up our station, we wanted to incorporate kasi (because of) the element of helping other people. The reason why we named it Wish is because we wanted to grant wishes,” Razon said.

Every small wish fulfilled brings smiles to the beneficiary.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa wish kasi tinupad po nila iyong wish ko (I thank Wish for granting my wish),” wisher from Bulacan Sheila Laudera said.

 

“Masarap sa pakiramdam kasi merong isang radio station na nag-grant ng wish. I hope sana marami din kayong ma-grant na Wish (It feels good that there is a radio station that grants wishes. I hope you grant more wishes),” Quezon City Wisher Regine Ann Abaigar said.

Also among the one-of-a-kind concepts of Wish FM is the Wish Music Awards which aside from being a night of honoring promising artists is a charitable event. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue

DSWD relief operations delayed in calamity-stricken areas in Mindanao due to damaged roads, bridges

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

IMAGE_UNTV_NEWS_122617_RELIEF

MANILA, Philippines – It’s a big challenge for the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to expedite the delivery of relief goods for those affected by Tropical Storm Vinta in Mindanao due to damaged roads and bridges.

“The delivery takes time. The people in Lanao del Sur…in Tubud..there are barangays which experience landslides but they are switching to alternate routes to arrive,” DSWD OIC Usec. Emmanuel Leyco said.

Based on DSWD’s record, there are more than 118 thousand families affected by the calamity in MIMAROPA, Regions 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and Caraga

From this number, more than 19,000 families of more than 19,000 individuals are staying in more than 200,000 evacuation centers.

To hasten the delivery of relief goods, the agency calls on local government units (LGU) to aid in the reconstruction of the damaged infrastructures.

According to the Provincial Crisis Management Committee of Lanao del Sur—clearing operations are being conducted on roads which are not passable by vehicles.

“We are under ‘double whammy’ in Lanao, we haven’t recovered yet from the war then we have..Vinta,” Lanao del Sur Provincial Crisis Management Committee Spokesperson Zia Alonto Adiong said.

Meantime there is a continuous repacking of relief goods for the calamity-hit areas at the National Resource Operation Center of DSWD in Pasay City

More than 500 volunteers from Church of God International from Southern Metro Manila and Cavite also participated in the relief efforts.

“Like what Bro. Eli, our brother Daniel Razon always remind—always do good for all and for all our fellowmen,” MCGI NCR Youth Ministry Christian Santiago said.

“For all the youth—I hope we can be part of these kinds of work—and social media should be used for more meaningful work such as sharing like this for them to see that as youth—it’s not only playing that we are doing,” MCGI Volunteer Michael Ramat said.

According to the coordinator of the group, more young members from Manila will join in repacking relief goods on Wednesday

Despite the influx of volunteers—the agency is still open for those who want to help 24/7 from 8am to 8pm and from 8pm to 8am. – Mai Bermudez | UNTV News & Rescue
