I wish I had been blessed with painting skills just like some of my relatives. It's actually one of my many frustrations. Art runs in our blood, but probably not on mine. So each time I'd encounter an artist and see his or her masterpieces, I am in such awe. This is also why I am happy to have met Ms. Ginny Guanco (a graduate of Fine Arts) some years back. At the time, she must have parked her paintbrushes and pencils then because she was focused on her job as part of an advertising agency. I was then a newbie blogger and perhaps it was meant for me to meet her, I accidentally "invited" myself to one of her events. It's really a long story how far we've come to know each other. But even if she has gone back to her first love (which is painting and drawing), we have remained in friends even through Facebook. So I am truly happy for Ms. Ginny on her second art exhibit.
Ladies festooned with flowers. Faces painted in vibrant hues and psychedelic patterns. Women crowned with fantastic headdresses. Whether the patterns follow a tribal design, or inspired by an imaginative free-flowing scheme, Ginny Guanco’s latest series of paintings depict a conspicuous and unabashed display of energy, brio, and an unmistakable joie de vivre.

In a bid to help Overseas Filipinos (OFs) working abroad come home for good, Sun Life Philippines (Sun Life) recently launched “Shine On, Overseas Pinoy!”, a talk show focused on helping OFs and their families achieve a financially secured future through financial education.
Hosted by Sun Life brand ambassador Charo Santos-Concio, the show is set to debut on May 14, 2022 on ABS-CBN’s The Filipino Channel (TFC). Each episode will have Charo engaging a featured OF along with a financial expert, with the discussion revolving around the OF’s financial concerns and possible solutions. The show aims to enable OFs and their families to make informed choices, equipped with the wisdom from other OFs’ experiences and expert financial advice.
"Overseas Filipinos are one of the most important sectors in our nation. There are 10.2 million of them located across the globe and they contribute up to 10% of the country’s GDP through their hard work," says Alex Narciso, President of Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. "They have made so many sacrifices to provide for their families. It is only fitting that for all they do, we also help them achieve a brighter tomorrow when they return home for good."
“Shine On, Overseas Pinoy!” will broadcast a new episode every Saturday and Sunday until June 25, 2022. The talk show is one of the many ways that Sun Life is helping OFs achieve their financial goals and look forward to a comfortable retirement. Shine Pinoy Overseas, the company’s banner program for OFs, continuously mounts activities and launches offerings to help them plot a path towards their homecoming, as well as enjoying a financially secure future. They can avail of any of Sun Life’s insurance and investment products before leaving the country to work abroad, while they are in the Philippines for a vacation, or upon their homecoming.
