Kasambuhay Habambuhay Anthology by Nestle

By struck of luck, I was able to be a part of night especially made for bloggers. Nestle made me a part of the premier of the Kasambuhay Habambuhay film anthology held at Rockwell. No strong winds or strong rain could stop me to reach the venue for the showing. Together with other bloggers, we were just in time to watch the first episode which I realized was somewhat close to what I am, a stage mother. Having five kids as performing artist is not an easy task but with the help of people around me, I managed to set them to their course.

I know for a fact that Nestle has touched each of our lives one way or another. It’s been a century that Nestle been providing generations of Filipino families with food and beverages product that promote nutrition, health and wellness. Their commitment and dedication to us as consumer is unremarkable. This year as they celebrate their 100th year anniversary, a project dubbed as Sine Kasambuhay was born. A 10 minute film consists of ten stories that show how different brand by Nestle been a part of our life.






THE HOWL AND THE FUSSYKET
Directed by: CHRIS MARTINEZ

Genre: A Family Comedy of Manners

8-YEAR OLD AARON (Gerald Pesigan) is dead set on winning the Grand Prize in his 2nd Grade declamation contest. He is determined to win despite his obvious “f” and “p” speech defect, a proclivity common amongst some Filipinos to interchange the pronunciation of English words with the letters “f” and “p”. His mother (Eugene Domingo) takes an active albeit humorous role in preparing him for the competition. This is a story of perseverance, family unity and the real meaning of triumph and possibly the “Rocky” of all declamation contests!

After each film, several emotions run over me. Reactions and sentiments could be felt inside the viewing area. Different point of views were heard as to which one is the best
My impression to each film was also heard. In my point of view, the film starred by Eddie Garcia and Marvin Agustin, shows how Nestle touches our lives from the old days to the new generation. I believe that the story deliver the message loud and clear. Generation after generation, Nestle touches our lives one way or another. Now that’s a fact.
