KC Concepcion Visits Uganda for United Nation Mission

Actress-TV Host and Phillipines Ambassador of United Nation's World Food Program (WFP) KC Concepcion has just got back from her 5-day Mission in Uganda.

She said that what she experienced in Uganda really taught her so many things and that also changed her perspective about life.

"Parang, you see na there are things na you don't see off-hand when you are there, and you go back to your world, hindi ba? Plus, you're in entertainment so everything is presented beautifully, striving for perfection, the glitz and the glamour, the luxury bags, the light, the audience and then you remember this quiet arid place under the hot sun with people you've never seen or met before."

"And you will remember their stories: 'Oh, you know, my sister was killed getting these fruits four months ago so we don't have anything to eat right now so we are eating the fruit peel of the fruit she died getting for us.'.. I mean, if you hear stories like that, kapag nagiging totoo siya, iba na ang pakiramdam talaga kasi no matter where you are or what happens kung sino ang kausap mo or anuman ang sabihin sa iyo, you will always know na there's a corner in the world that exists na ganoon and it's either in our daily lives. We forget that these things exist or we just never knew they did," KC said in a press conference on Wednesday, January 26, 2011.

Uganda is one of the most depressed countries in Africa which has been caused by two decades of peace and order conflict and by climate change problems.

I consider her as a lucky person for having given a chance to reach out other people even in a very risky way. If given a chance, I would also do the same because like her, I love to do social work too.

Below are pics that I've found via Google Images.

To Ms. KC Concepcion: I salute you  for being  a brave and a kind-hearted fellow. More power!

Piolo Pascual Finally Reveals His Relationship with KC Concepcion

My initial reaction was, "Oh my goodness! Papa P.  is finally taken!"

The revelation happened in an exclusive interview by Ms. Charlene Gonzales on "The Buzz", January 30, 2011. The ultimate hunk revealed that he and KC have been together since October 21, last year.

I would like to share the transcript of  the interview courtesy of  Starmometer.

Piolo Pascual: “…I’ve come to a point in my life na mas gusto kong magpakatotoo regardless of what people might say, regardless of people’s judgment or opinion, i guess because the person deserves it. I guess because i just owe it to myself, i owe it to the public and i owe it to that person.”

Charlene: “Piolo this is your chance. Be honest. Kayo na ba ni KC Concepcion?”

Piolo: “Yes.” (The crowd went wild at this moment)

Charlene: “Piolo…that is something…that is something everybody wants to hear. And i am so happy for the both of you. How do you feel? It’s liberating isn’t it?”

Piolo: “It’s very liberating, siguro what I’ve to deal with is a…sorry I just have to expound on this. The reason why I never admitted naman or not elaborate it because may pinoprotektahan ako. You know how it is, I have a son na hindi mo makasama. Ayaw mong mapariwara ‘yung bata, ayaw mong magkaron ng ibang reaction kasi bata ‘yun, he’s only 13 years old. But I think I decided at this point na kung ano man ang magiging reaction ng anak ko from here, we just have to deal with it.

Charlene: “And you’re at age and you’re son is of at age as well.”

Piolo: “And siguro para matigil na ‘yung mga nagpaparinig kay Kristina joke!”
(5 days ago, Azkals’ Phil Younghusband admitted that he has a crush on KC Concepcion. of the Black Eyed Peas and Rhap Fernandez were also among those who expressed their admiration to the Mega Daughter

Charlene: “Teka muna na-guilty naman ako kasama ba ako diyan, hindi naman di ba?”

Piolo: “Hindi naman, marami kasi ang nagsasabi na may gusto raw sa kanya pero I guess they just have to know that we’ve been together…”

Charlene: “For how long?”

Piolo: “Since last year.” (the crowd went wild once again)

Charlene: “Kelan ang anniversary niyo?”

Piolo: “October 21.”

Charlene: “How did you get her to say yes? Ano ginawa mo?”

Piolo: “It took me 2 years. We’ve been going out for 2 years…tsaka na ‘yung detalye pero siyempre that’s one of the best days of my life.”

Charlene: “And how did you feel when she said yes.”

Piolo: “Siyempre na-relief. For the first time in so many years, more than 8 years, I’m getting into a relationship, a commitment, and I plan to keep it.”

Charlene: “Is she the woman that you would like to spend the rest of your life with?”

Piolo: “Siguro hindi naman ako aamin ng ganito o hindi ako magte-take ng risk kung sa tingin ko hindi ko gusto siya makasama habang buhay.” 

There you go guys! 

By the way, Piolo has a message for those who are crushing and planning to take KC Concepcion out on a date: “She’s taken!”

Here's more, Papa P. calls KC "Princess", ayayay!

My wishes to both of them!

Strolling Along the Lakeshore, South Lake Tahoe

We are now staying at  the Best Western Timber Cove  comfortably while waiting for the car to be fixed. Best Western is located near the shore of Lake Tahoe. Since we don't have a car, my teeners and I just contented taking a walk while enjoying the amazing view of  the pine trees, lake shore and the lake itself.

Sharing some photos we took while strolling:

Lake Tahoe is such an amazing place!

I hope you enjoy viewing at the photos.

Thanks for dropping-by.

Car Trouble in South Lake Tahoe

We were about to leave Hansen Resort a day earlier when hubby found out that the engine is leaking and gas is all over the ground when he started the car to warm it up while we were still inside the cabin preparing to leave. Sigh.

A cop who happened to be in the vicinity  pulling-over a driver called a towing service for hubby to tow the car going to an auto shop. The name of the towing company is Welcome's Towing. We were charged $100.00 for the towing. The owner of the resort recommended Christensen Automative so the car was sent there. The mechanic estimated a $200.00 charges and said it would take 3.5 hours to fix it. We roamed around town while waiting. We walked from the resort going to the Red Hut for breakfast which was recommended by Mr. Guillian, the resort owner. 

This has been my teener's second time in Lake Tahoe and it's been my third time but we wanted to see more of this beautiful place so we grabbed the chance. Lake Tahoe is one of the beautiful places in the world.

Check these photos we took:

This part of the street belongs to Nevada State, next to the traffic light belongs to California

After two hours, the mechanic called for a bad news which caused us a BIG  SHOCK. He said that the car can't be fixed until Friday because he has to order the defective parts and that it would cost us more or less $800.00. Holy cow! No kidding! I felt like we were being robbed that very moment. Sigh!

We returned to Hansen Resort via Yellow cab and decided to stay for the night. Hubby called his boss that he can't work on Friday, called to reserve a different hotel for two more  nights and called Domino's Pizza for delivery (per advertisement from the phone book but  it's not actually Domino's when the pizza was delivered, so beware!)

As I am writing this post,  hubby, my teeners and I are enjoying our stay at Best Western Timber Cove, still in South Lake Tahoe, California.
