Vivo local endorsers, singers, and real-life lovers KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde on Saturday, February 17, charmed their fans at a post-Valentine’s Day show at Limketkai Atrium in Cagayan de Oro City.
The concert, which also featured The X Factor alumni Jeric Medina, Chandreena, and Shameena Moorjani as well as CDO-based Visayan pop singer Winset Jacot, was made possible through the support of global smartphone brand Vivo.
The Limketkai Atrium was jam-packed with fans of all ages, from all walks of life to witness the talented singers perform their hits. In between the songs, fans screamed to show their love and appreciation for the pair. Unsurprisingly, Monterde and Tandingan did not disappoint. They hit the right notes and delivered a show for the books. They even performed a medley of Visayan songs, especially for their Kagay-anon fans.
Monterde sang his original compositions such as “Sa Tuwina,” “Imahinasyon,” and “Mahika.” Tandingan, meanwhile, delighted fans with her rendition of “Tadhana,” “Two Less Lonely People in the World,” and her winning performance of “Rolling in the Deep” on the Chinese television series “Singer 2018.”
Tandingan and Monterde joined Vivo’s family in September 2017 during the launch of the V7+, the brand’s flagship smartphone that boasts of a 24-megapixel front camera and 5.99-inch all-screen display.
Since then, the singers have performed at Vivo’s mall shows in and out of Metro Manila in helping spread the word about what sets Vivo smartphones apart from the pack. Tandingan and Monterde both expressed their gratitude to Vivo for helping them mount the show.
“Vivo has always been supportive of our projects. We’re very thankful to them for helping us sing together for our fans in Cagayan de Oro,” the pair said.
To make the event more exciting, Vivo gave away V7 smartphones to two lucky fans who posted online a photo of the concert using the hashtag #VivoxTVxKZ.
Dubbed as Soul Supreme, Tandingan hails from Digos City, Davao del Sur who won the first season of The X Factor Philippines in 2012. The acoustic balladeer, meanwhile, left his career as a radio personality and a host of ABS-CBN’s regional show MagTV in CDO to pursue his passion for music.
In 2017, they released the official lyric video of their duet “Ikaw at Ako Pa Rin” after it went viral. It was also part of Monterde’s self-titled album.
Valentine’s Day is yet another convenient excuse to splurge on gifts to show your significant other how much they are loved and cared for.
Apart from the usual flower bouquet-chocolate combo, these days of youthful, new wave trends call for unique Valentine’s presents. Here are four unique finds you can gift your loved ones this Valentine’s season:
Grooming and Trimming Kit for Him
Grooming Kits have taken the masculine form as of recent and have become the rage since the rise of old-school male hair (and even beard) priming. A lot of local grooming kits for men have emerged in the market that deliver that most-coveted old-world sleek.
A basic grooming kit usually contains a high-quality wooden comb, a pot of pomade perfumed subtly with musk, and a vial of beard oil which works wonders when one is contemplating growing a neat beard. Fragrances are also in the kit and even a small bottle of shampoo to complement the comb-pomade essentials.
A Pot of Fragrant Herbs for Her
Other herbs you can gift her are mint, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, and oregano. If she is not into herbs, you can always give her a pot of the good old cactus. Cactus are not only decorative but also requires very little maintenance.
Wine-infused Chocolates for Him or Her
Valentine’s Day minus the chocolates in unthinkable and even mortal sin. So, to give a little twist to the usual and tiring chocolate presents for Valentine’s Day, opt for spirit-infused chocolates.
This indulgent fare is just as good as it sounds. Even non-alcohol drinkers will enjoy the succulent flavors made even richer with booze as the fat in the chocolate tempers the alcohol. Whiskey and Bourbon infused chocolate bars are the most popular, but so are the subtler ones like Red Wine and Chocolate Kahlua.
Travel Tickets for Two for Him or Her
Couples who travel together stay together. The Philippines is very much unexplored and the travel destinations are mostly affordable yet breathtaking. Huma Island in Palawan is one. Seated amidst the famous turquoise water of Palawan, Huma Island boasts of Maldivian scenery (perhaps even better) coupled with sumptuous seafood dishes to complete the remote island adventure. The Langun Gobingob Caves in Samar is also one unique destination. Dubbed the Philippines’ largest cave, there are mountains to cross to reach this picturesque wonder which means double in adventure. Langun Gobingob also comprises of a lowland tropical rainforest, again the largest in the Philippines.
For all your adventures and milestones, make Vivo V7 a part of it. Vivo V7 proves that big things come in small packages. The V7, much like its predecessor, the equally dynamic V7+, reinforces Vivo’s leadership in selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera, which produces above-quality selfies—perfect for those romantic date nights. By keeping true-to-life color and contrast and a clear background at all times, V7 allows users to express themselves practically anytime, anywhere at their whim. The V7’s smart photography algorithms generate crystal-clear, natural-looking photos. To complement the V7’s powerful camera feature, the Beauty 7.0 feature brightens up selfies and creates a more even complexion, even in dimly-lit environments. Portrait Mode in the V7 adds background blurring for sharper contrast and visual appeal to generate stylish selfies equivalent to those from DSLR cameras. But that’s not all. The V7 also rocks a 5.7” all-screen display with an 83.6% screen to body ratio that would normally house a 5.2-inch screen, offering 12.5% more visual display area compared to traditional 16:9 screens. This V7 feature enhances consumers’ visual experience, a perfect element to satisfy this generation’s very visual demographic. Lastly, this smartphone’s security spec is super secure with its revolutionary finger-print lock feature.
