Between Maybes the first ever team up of Gerald Anderson and Julia Barretto

Presscon of Between Maybes

Why should I watch the movie, Between Maybes? Aside that Gerald Anderson is my favorite actor or Japan is my favorite destination. I am very excited to see for the first time on the big screen that Gerald Anderson is paired up with Julia Barretto. Also I can relate to the story since I love to travel and I experienced the role of Julia Barreto.
The stars of Between Maybes, Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson
In Between Maybes, the story about two people who found peace in the most unlikeliest places: in each other’s company. The two actors underwent through a series of workshops with Laxamana and shot the majority of the film on location in Japan during the bloom of the Sakura trees. Although Saga is a quiet prefecture with a small population, the serene nature of the place lends another layer to the story of Hazel and Louie. Filmmaker Jason Paul Laxamana wanted to create a story that reflected the serenity and calm nature of the location.

To give you a little glimpse of Between Maybes, Julia Barretto plays Hazel, an actress experiencing troubles in her career and not having control of her life. Feeling lost and wanting to escape, she books a random flight and eventually ends up in the secluded prefecture of Saga, Japan. There she finds an unexpected confidante in Louie (Gerald Anderson), who isolated himself after experiencing heartbreak from his family. The two develop a functional relationship. Hazel asks Louie to check on her as she’s not used to being on her own. While Louie finds Hazel’s company and noise amusing, as it’s a break from his simple world lacking human connection. Amidst the silence and isolation, Hazel and Louie find comfort in each other as they both needed it at that certain point in their lives. But knowing how far apart their worlds are, they can only hold on to the belief that some encounters are special because of how fleeting they are.

During the presscon both Anderson and Barretto give admiration to each other for their roles that they are portraying and they both had a profound connection to their characters. Julia’s recent trip to South America was a means to take a step back and recalibrate from her busy schedule while Gerald felt that isolation often feels like a good choice just to get away from his life, even if only for a while. The theme song is the brand new version of Rico Blanco’s hit song “Your Universe” is created specifically for the film by Acel, the original singer of Moonstar88.

With Julia Barretto
The movie will open in cinema nationwide starting May 15, just after election and the movie Avengers. This film offers to the audiences seeking for an escape might need a dose of refreshing take on fleeting romances and little moments that linger forever and  maybe it’s time to experience the beauty of Between Maybes. Directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, produced by Black Sheep Productions as their theatrical debut and is distributed by Star Cinema.

With the world today, people are very dependent with everything Instant, everything comes handy and everything is fast paced. Almost everything available in the market should be on-the-go and ready for easy access, remember how the regular cellular phones would work before? From making Phone Calls and sending Text Messages to the Cellular Phones with radios then games, camera, now the internet and the never ending improvement and with the new models released each month, if not each week, we can truly say that the people of today has changed. People are looking after products that are efficient, giving them more than what they want and providing them what they thought are not necessary and this need does not only apply with our need for gadgets and technology, there are Fastfood everywhere, Instant coffee, Instant noodles, bottled Juice and everything that we need everyday comes in an instant, 

Lucky for us people on-the-go Nutra Berde Inc. officially launched a product that can cope up with our modern fast paced lifestyle, a 4-in-1 All natural supplement that is not only affordable but is also guaranteed effective, BIOHERB is a natural supplement that helps deal with medical cases like Diabetes. BIOHERB is made with Ampalaya leaves, Banaba leaves, Camote leaves and Duhat leaves that are all known for their healing effects especially with Diabetes, but Bioherb is not only recommended for those already battling Diabetes, it will also be a very useful preventive supplemenet for those people that are most likely to develop it, Bioherb is also rich with Anti-oxidants that is also a great help when it comes to maintaining the body's overall health and for a fast metabolism, keeping us in shape. But cannot be taken alongside another supplement with a hypoglycemic effect and not intended for children.

                                                   Interview with Mr. Mark Lopez
 "We at Nutra Berde Inc. wants to provide Filipinos an all-natural way to manage diabetes. It is a disease that is a growing cause of morbidity in the country" Said Mark Lopez President of Nutra Berde Inc. said, Diabetes is undeniably one of the biggest cause of death in the country and every Filipino is deserving of a preventive medicine like Bioherb and just like the popular line in social media goes "Advance ako mag-isip" "advance thinking" should be applied to every aspect of our lives, we would'nt want to wait until we're sick before we take medications that is why there are varieties of vitamins and other medicines available in the market but a Natural option is now available in the market and as the saying would say "health is wealth" but I believe that to be healthy, does not mean to spend, we look for products that are inexpensive and impressively effective and a factor we all should consider when looking for medications is for a product to be "Natural" with all the preservatives there are in the food we eat, we can only try and be wise in choosing our allies, chosing only those that are Organic and Natural, as the Former Department of Health secretary Dr.Jaime Galveztan said, "What is nice about the effects of the Naturals (Bioherb), we have also shown in the laboratory that they can go so much, the difference is in the U.S., (Medicines are) Anti, kontra here, its about harmony, equilibrium, balance is restored. Once balance is restored with Ampalaya, Banaba, Duhat and Camote its already done, the body is already in balance in terms of blood sugar"

Truly, the world today is so much different from that in the past. Funny how things can change in a year and how things happen with a snap of a finger, with all these changes and with all the unwanted substances that gets into our body, we need help to cope up and keep us on the game and on-the-go to face our daily challenges, there are products within our reach that can do so, we only have to be wise in choosing which product can help us.
