President Aquino Lights Up ABS-CBN Christmas Celebration

November 6, 2010 by  

Stars shine the brightest this yuletide season as ABS-CBN officially kicked off its 2010 Christmas campaign last Thursday (Nov 4) with President Noynoy Aquino as guest of honor.

Through the dedication of its ELJ Communication Center Bldg. and the ceremonial lighting of the whole ABS-CBN compound, the Kapamilya Network started its Christmas celebration with the theme “Ngayong Pasko, Magniningning ang Pilipino” which aims to once again kindle the light of unity and honor Filipinos’ commitment to change.

“Through the years your annual Christmas theme along with its special presentations and programs has warmed the hearts of millions Filipinos at home and abroad. More than just entertainment, it encapsulates the heart of our culture and the joy of being a Filipino,” said Pres. Aquino. “This coming Christmas will surely make Filipino families come together aligned with your theme.”

As a token of appreciation for gracing the special event, ABS-CBN Chairman and CEO Gabby Lopez and President and COO Charo Santos-Concio gave the president his own Kapamilya Parol, a personalized parol made by ABS-CBN Licencing serves as a symbol for the commitment to change and stand as a pledge for one’s individual share in bringing about change in his life, his family, and his nation.

Other than PNoy, Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim, Sec. Sonny Coloma, Sec. Ricky Carandang, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, QC Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, and MTRCB Chairman Grace Poe-Llamanzares also graced the event.

The Lopez family came in full force to celebrate the 82nd birthday anniversary of ABS-CBN’s late founder Geny “Kapitan” Lopez which also coincided the same day.

Among the Kapamilya stars sighted during the event were Kris Aquino, Boy Abunda, KC Concepcion, Gretchen Barretto, Angel Aquino, Bianca Manalo, Empress, Lauren Young, Kelly Misa, Jessy Mendiola, Helga Krapf, Isabelle Abierra, and Nina Dolino.

Members of the entertainment press such as Ethel Ramos, Ricky Lo, Crispina Belen, Nestor Cuartero, Mario Hernando, Dindo Balares, Maricris Nicasio, Butch Roldan, Sandy Mariano, Karen Pagsolingan, Alan Diones, Ador Saluta, Rose Garcia, Emy Abuan at Ver Paulino were also present.

ABS-CBN also launched on the same day its much-awaited Christmas station ID titled “Ngayong Pasko, Magniningning ang Pilipino” as performed by Gary Valenciano and Toni Gonzaga with the world renowned University of Santo Tomas Singers. The song is part of the Christmas songs compilation album from Star Recording Inc. which are now available on record bars and available for online download via www.starrecords.ph.

Before the momentous occasion, a mass was first held in the ABS-CBN Chapel of the Inunciation presided by Most Reverend Honesto Ongtioco, Bishop of the Diocese of Cubao, followed by the awards proper of the annual Gawad Geny Lopez Jr. Bayaning Pilipino Awards.

All of these activities are part of ABS-CBN’s Christmas campaign for 2010. Other components to watch out for include the airing of the Kapamilya Simbang Gabi, Kapamilya Parol selling, launching of the viewers text promo and of course the higjly anticpated annual ABS-CBN Christmas special at the Araneta Coliseum.

    kala ko wala syang favoritism…kung ginawa nya yan sa ABSCBN..he should also do it with the other two channels…kapag hindi it just shows..what kind of person he is.

  6. oh wag ng magreact on November 6th, 2010 9:24 am

    Kapamilya si Pnoy, tutal ung kapamilya network pabor din nman sa kanya…
    May bahid pulitika ba…

  7. .... on November 6th, 2010 12:38 pm

    PNoy was just invited as an honored guest, it doesn’t literally mean that his a kapamilya … but it was a good thing though n pumunta siya >>> another point for abs-cbn

  10. Miki on November 6th, 2010 1:31 pm

    ….anu ba naman itong presidente ng Pilipinas pati ba naman ganito pinupuntahan niya pa?…there are other important things he should do, rather than going to this kind of event…his ES or other people in Malancanang can attend on his behalf. Lalong dumarami ang naghihirap sa Pinas….

  11. KnowTheHistory! on November 6th, 2010 1:43 pm

    alamin nyo muna ang kasaysayan bago kayo magreact jan ng bonggang-bongga. ang ABS-CBN kc ang isa sa mga Networks na nanindigan laban sa diktador ng panahon ng Martial Law, samantalang ang GMA ay isa sa mga tuta ni Marcos na ninakaw nya sa mga Stewarts na tunay na may-ari at ginawang dummies sina duavit, jimenez, at gozon. kaya nga kung naaalala nyo pa nagsampa ng kaso si Irene Marcos laban sa GMA para bawiin ang mahigit 30% na share na ayon sa kanya ay hindi na binalik sa kanila ng mga dummies at may kasulatan sila na nagpapatunay dito. sa hirap at ginhawa, tunay at tapat na serbisyong Pinoy ang hatid ng ABS-CBN samantalang ang GMA marumi ang pinanggalingan dahil galing sa nakaw at hanggang ngayon patuloy pa rin sa pandaraya sa ratings. once a cheater, always a cheater!

  12. be fair! on November 6th, 2010 2:13 pm

    ABS-CBN kc ang laging naninindigan para sa tunay at tapat na serbisyong Pilipino!

    alamin ang kasaysayan kung bakit?

    When the Philippines was placed under martial rule, Marcos ordered the take over of media firms. Government troops entered radio and television stations, and they were placed under military control. All media outlets that were critical of the Marcos administration were padlocked and sequestered.
    DWGT-TV Channel 4, the government channel, was seized by the Office of Press Secretary Francisco Tatad and the National Media Production Center of Gregorio Cendaña. DZXL-TV Channel 9 and DZTV-TV Channel 13 were eventually controlled by the then Ambassador Roberto Benedicto, and Bob Stewart’s DZBB-TV Channel 7 was later allowed to operate with limited three-month permits. ABS-CBN was seized from the Lopez family, and Eugenio Lopez Jr., then president of ABS-CBN, was imprisoned. By the latter part of 1973, GMA-7 was under the Felipe Gozon the family lawyer of Stewart because foreigners are not allowed to own businesses in the Philippines, who later changed the name from RBS to Greater Manila Area Radio Television Arts, or simply GMA-7. (Stewart ang tunay na may ari ng GMA, kinamkam ni Marcos, ginawang dummies sina duavit, jimenes,& gozon-inagaw naman ng mga dummies at di na binalik sa kumamkam)

    In 1984, Imee Marcos, daughter of Ferdinand Marcos, tried to take over GMA-7 but she was successfully prevented by GMA dummy owners, Menardo Jimenez and Felipe Gozon. Disappointed with the Marcos dictatorship, Stewart left the Philippines.

    Mga ampalaya talaga ang mga nagko-comment na may bahid pulitika ang ABS CBN. Isang malaking kompanya ang ABS so dapat isang “malaking tao” ang maging guest of honor..so in this case, ang presidente. Alangan namang si barangay chairman ang maging guest of honor nila. Kung pwede nga lang si Obama.Kung halimbawa, activity ito ng GMA at si PNoy din ang guest of honor, ano ang sasabihin nyo? Ano? Mga kapuso talaga kayo. Pag tsure mo oi.

  15. jun on November 6th, 2010 2:42 pm

    ahaha..mga bitter.. naiinggit lang kayo kasi kapamilya c pnoy.. wla ang mga kanguso nyan.. ahahha..!! bitter luck next time nlang kayo..

  18. markem on November 6th, 2010 6:16 pm

    yung ibang nagcocomment parang walang pinag-aaralan.. sinabi ngang guest of honor dba? kasi binasbasan ang ELJ communicatons center.. hindi lang naman pumunta siya dun para gumala.. paminsan minsan nga gamitin ang utak.. huwag itago sa paa baka kalawangin yan.. but good to know that PNOY loves ABS-CBN, and so do i.

  19. ulit? on November 6th, 2010 6:49 pm

    bakit pag sa gma pumunta c PNOy tahimik ang lahat. pag sa abs xa, sasabihin may bahid pulitika. kung sabagay, iba na pag sikat, lahat ng anggulo, iniisyu.. get some life pipz. stay humble kapamilyas… baliktarin man ang mundo, alam ni santa ang totoo… ABS CBN= No 1.

  20. KapamilyaForeverr on November 6th, 2010 7:03 pm

    thank you ABS-CBN for this once again, a very timely and heartwarming Christmas STation ID.

  21. angtotoo on November 6th, 2010 8:24 pm

    tama c no. 17, as far as i remember naging guest of honor c former pres. Arroyo with vice-pres De Castro nung mg.bukas ang new GMA building… ung annex nila… so wat’s the issue kung maging guest of honor c Pnoy sa ABS???

  22. jake santos on November 6th, 2010 9:00 pm

    #11… totoo ang sinabi mo, nagtataka ako bakit ang GMA ay hindi pinasara ng mga Marcoses…siguro nga galing sa nakaw pera ng GOZON, DUAVIT at JIMENEZ…maybe?

  23. Dati Kapuso on November 6th, 2010 11:22 pm

    Dati akong Kapuso,narealize kong daming bitter sa Kapuso talaga. I love gma pa din naman,pero hindi po natin dapat bgyn ng bahid pulitika ang mga ganitong event. Isa ang ABS-CBN sa pinakamalalaking kumpanya sa bansa kaya dapat din namang andun ang Pangulo, bka naman hnd invitd ang Pangulo nung ilabs ang CSID NG GMA kaya natural hnd un mgpnta. Dont be bitter. Be better. sb yan ni Christian Bautista sa twitter nia.

    nauna ng naimbitahan si PNOY sa anniversary ng GMA7. ung nagsasabing me favoritism si PNOY eh mag-research ka muna okay at masyado kang maraming kinakaing ampalaya.
    palibhasa, tutok ka lang sa 7 kaya your mind is already conditioned whatever your station feeds you!
    kindly open your mind to reality ok!

  25. Miki on November 7th, 2010 3:35 pm

    ..but we can never deny that during the Marcoses, life is os easy. Job opportunities is everywhere, gooods are cheaper, hospitals and education facilities are free, housing and infrastructure projects are seen even in the remote areas, even the poorest has given a chance to live a decent life. Philippine is known as the Tiger of South East Asia…Filipinos are respected anywhere as we have a strong leader that can fight for us…ngaun hindi na ganoon..at alam iyan ng mga Pinoy sa abroad…. In fact the Marcoses is the source why we have OFW in the middle east…it is from the charm of Imelda Marcos…. Kaya nga nung lumutang na ang Yellow Fever, sila ang nagpasimuno ng contractual employees..kaya ang mga Pinoy sa Pinas ay patuloy na naghihirap dahil hindi makakuha ng regular na trabaho sa atin…mas pinaboran ng Cory Aquino govt. ang mga negosyante….brown-out dito at brown out doon…kaya tuluyan na nagdilim sa mga sumunod na administrasyon magpahanggang ngaun… I am KAPUSO but not saying that PNoy is Kapamilya…dahil imbitado rin siya sa kasal at isa sa mga abay ni Regine at Ogie who are certified Kapuso…Kakatuwa ang presidente..showbiz na showbiz….

    …..until today the Marcoses were not proven guilty sa sinasabing mga ill-gotten wealth….kaya halos lahat ng kaso ni Madam Marcos, even sa amerika ay abswelto dahil wala naman ebidensiyang maipakita ang abolished PCGG….kaya nga iyong mga shoes, gowns, jewelries na naiwan ng mga Marcoses were looted by certain prominent people during Aquino administration…

  30. @no.27 on November 12th, 2010 8:19 pm

    Bagay lang yan kay madam Imelda Marcos…kung tutuusin kulang pa nga na kabayaran yan sa mga ninakaw at winaldas na yaman ng Pilipinas nila noon….hanggang ngayon binabayaran pa rin natin ang utang na hindi naman natin inutang sa world bank..tayo ang naghihirap dahil sa kanila.
