This Week on 'We Rise Together': Cathy Garcia-Molina, newlyweds KZ and TJ, + JM de Guzman!

This week was all about love: the kind you want to keep, the kind you want to share, and the kind you have for your kababayans.

Singers and newlyweds KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde joined the October 26 episode where they happily talked about their intimate wedding last August.

The couple shared their New Normal wedding experience and why they decided to push through with the ceremony amid the pandemic.

“In the beginning, when the lockdown was announced, we initially agreed na baka i-postpone na lang talaga 'yung wedding,” KZ admitted.

She continued, “Isa rin sa reason kung bakit namin pinush, na-realize namin na we can't just push this back nang paulit-ulit kasi even tomorrow is not promised. Kumbaga mas mahihirapan pa tayo. So kung kaya naman na natin, gawin na natin.”

Blockbuster Director Cathy Garcia-Molina gave us more details about her upcoming fundraising event “Pakpak ng Pangarap” during the October 28 episode.

The event, which will be held this October 31, aims to raise funds to buy 100 laptops for 100 students who do not have the means to purchase one of their own for online learning.

“Kaya siya Pakpak ng Pangarap, tayo 'yung magsisilbing wings ng pangarap ng mga bata,” she explained.

Direk Cathy also spoke about the struggles of many students and families who don’t have the capability to buy gadgets during this challenging time.

“Kung dati nakakayanan pag-ipunan ‘yung tuition fee, libro, ngayong dumating yung need for gadget, masyadong mahal. Masyadong malaki. Lalo kung ilan ang anak mo na nag-aaral tapos sakto lang ang kinikita mo sa araw-araw para sa pamilya mo, ang labas ilabas ng pera. Not to mention pandemya,” she said.

One of the stars of the horror film "U-Turn" JM De Guzman graced the October 30 episode and he talked about his experience while filming the movie. According to JM, he had a good time working with his co-stars Kim Chiu and Tony Labrusca.

"Sobrang gaan lang nila katrabaho. Si Kim kapag katrabaho mo parang hindi siya artista or superstar, normal at simpleng tao lang na makulit. Masaya silang katrabaho," he said.

JM, who was recently awarded for his performance in "Pamilya Ko," also shared some tips for young stars hoping to make it in the industry.

"Habang nagma-mature ka sa craft mo, hindi mo dapat iniisip na 'Gusto kong magka-award, gagalingan ko, aarte ako, magpe-perform ako.' Malilihis ka sa truth. Kung magka-award ka man, thank you. Kung magaling ka sa last performance mo, tingin mo magaling ka na, nagiging complacent ka. So dapat laging back to zero, back to zero, learn, learn, learn," he shared.
