John Lloyd is the New Face of Cherry!

I've always been a fan of John Lloyd Cruz! From his boyish smile and plump cheeks that beg to be pinched not to mention his lovable charisma and acting prowess... he is every bit a star. While he's been the topic of showbiz reporters as of late as everyone seems to be in his business, wondering if he's single or not, John Lloyd is still making his rounds about town grinning ear to ear. Well, it looks like John Lloyd has a lot to smile about, especially as the new image model of Cherry Mobile.

John Lloyd was recently spotted at the official launch of Cherry Mobile. It was a spectacularly glam event as celebrities, media luminaries, and other beautiful people flocked to Bureau bar in Makati. Cherry Mobile, the newest player in the local mobile communications industry, introduced their new line of fully-featured dual SIM handsets to the public.

Hosted by DJ Toni Tony (of Magic 89.9’s Boys Night Out) and beautiful model/TV personality Jaimee Joaquin, the future-themed party turned out to be a sufficiently hot affair, with guests filling up Bureau to its full capacity. Partygoers were treated to a program full of surprises. A fantastic air dance show started the party, leaving the crowd breathless. Stunning Miss Philippines-Earth candidates came to join the party, flashing off their new Cherry Mobile handsets to the delight of the attendees.

The moment John Lloyd stepped up to the microphone with Aggie Conopio of Versatile Telecoms (the exclusive distributor of Cherry Mobile), the screams were deafening. When was asked how he felt being chosen as the official endorser of Cherry Mobile, he said that the dual SIM features of the handsets would come in very handy. “I’m very excited about the new line from Cherry Mobile. You can use two SIMs at once, watch TV and listen to music, and the design is very classy. The phones are also very affordable, even with all their features.”

According to John Lloyd, there are four new handsets from Cherry for the public to watch out for: The Cherry D20 Life has all the basic features that cellular phone users love in a Dual Active SIM/ Dual Standby model with a built-in camera. The Cherry D50 Inertia is the “Motion in Action” handset of Cherry- it caters to the active people with its sporty rugged feel. The Cherry M35 Integra is the “Entertainment anytime, anywhere” phone. And the S11 Blade is Cherry Mobile’s fashion handset. The design features a sleek finish and all the needed functions for user’s leisure and entertainment. The best thing about Cherry is that, not only do the units suit every Filipino’s lifestyle, but also suits the Filipino budget as the dual-SIM phones are extremely affordable with models starting at around 3,000 pesos!

When asked by some media about if there was a specific woman in his life that John Lloyd would be calling in the near future with his new mobile phone, the actor just laughed and smiled, thwarting any intrigue in the process.

Amazing Race Duo on the Edge

From dual-SIM phones, today's Mojo:lations goes on to chronicle another dynamic duo, this time in the personalities of Amazing Racers Geoff Rodriguez and Tisha Silang. The pair was spotted with their celebrity friends as they helped get the action off to a blazing start to launch Castrol EDGE, a new line of fully synthetic engine oils that guarantees top performance for your car. Castrol EDGE delivers maximum horsepower and lasts 45% longer than standard engine oils. It also provides optimal thermal stability and maximum engine protection.

Starting off the night was the special auto show which featured 82 souped-up high-performance tuner vehicles from many of the best car clubs and organizations in Metro Manila, including Team Rage, Accord Tunerz, Girl Racer Club, and others. Partygoers were given the special chance to meet and mingle with celebrity motoring aficionados who joined the celebrations, including actress and former Hot Babe Andrea del Rosario and Jennifer Lee.

Silang and Rodriguez, who were featured prominently as top three finalists in last year’s The Amazing Race Asia, said they were particularly excited about the car show.

“We’re big car fans so it’s a real treat for us to be here,” said Silang. “Some of the rides we saw at the show were just incredible. We’re really hyped to see the movie as well.”

“Being surrounded by fast cars and hot babes, I'm one lucky guy! I definitely picked up some great ideas for my own car,” added Rodriguez.
