RED ENTERTAINMENT, INC., THE COMPANY THAT PUBLISHED THE 1 ST
FREE ONLINE AND PRINTED NEWS MAGAZINE IN THE PHILIPPINES,
VILLAGE PIPOL, WAS ESTABLISHED ON OCTOBER 2007. #CHEERS!
After months of intense and playful heat, summer is coming to an end. Surprisingly,
it seems that rainy season comes early this year. Nonetheless, there are still some of
us going to beaches, flaunting their tan lines and shoulder’s sunburns.
It's the 5th month of the year. I hope that everyone of us has already fulfilled some
of their 2019 goals. Days do seem to go by faster than normal—or maybe just the
psychological time. Well, it is true that time flies so fast when we are having fun.
However, it also occurs when our attention is totally engaged in various endeavors—
and it is really beneficial. We are not in a state of boredom, that’s why.
It is nice to see people being busy and showing dedication to achieve their goals—
that is really empowering. Balancing work and personal life might be hard so I adore
people who can do both with excellence and consistency. Just always remember
that the key to make yourself happy is finding a balance between staying busy and
taking time to reinvigorate and recharge.

PALAUI ISLAND IS
CAGAYAN'S UNDERRATED GEM
WRITTEN BY JAVIN BRUA | PHOTOS BY JOSH AUSTRIA
n island so promising yet maintains its natural
beauty. Correct, I am talking about God's gift to
nature, Palaui Island.
Heritage of Palaui
Derived from the word Palami dated way back from
the Spanish era, the Island of Palaui exudes nothing
but peace and harmony. The haven is located at
the northeastern most part of Cagayan Valley, in
the municipality of Santa Ana, Cagayan province.
Inaccessible to few, the treasure of the North really
deserves a spot on your vacation list.
CNN even declared as rank 10 from World’s 100 Best
Beaches together with Puka Beach, Boracay (#84)
and El Nido, Palawan (#14).
Protected Land and
The main selling point of this paradise is not its
crystal clear seas and marvelous caves. It is the
luxury of experiencing how majestic this place is in
its almost-untouched form. Palaui Island prides its
preserved resources unlike other famous beaches
and attractions Philippines is known for. Thanks
to the locals and tourists who have come to a
consensus to protect the Island at all cost.
This is where sustainable development come in
handy. The Island boosts local tourism to the
community that's why it needs mandatory
protection. While the involvement of tourists also
plays a big part to the sustenance of the Island's
beauty. After all, it takes two to tango, right?
Modes of Transportation
There are tons of ways on how to get to this paradise.
Airplane rides are available but if you'll travel by land,
you need 12 (or more) hours from Manila to Palaui
Island, Cagayan. Take a bus ride going to Tuguegarao
City. From there, go ahead and ride a van to Sta.
Ana, Cagayan. The van will land you to Sta. Ana
Commercial center, one tricycle ride away from Sta.
At San Vicente port, boat rides are available going to
Palaui Island. If you're the adventurous type, you can
trek your way to Cape Engaño lighthouse. But there's
also a boat ride that transports you directly to the
island that requires no trekking.
For the first day of the trip, we visited the iconic and
historical Callao Cave. As a matter of fact, the latest
discovered human species Homo luzonensis is found
in this cave.
The cave has seven chambers with five natural
skylights shared by our tour guide, Aljon Poquiz.
The cave comprises of rock formations, stalactite,
stalagmite, and limestone.
The view inside is promising not to mention our
ancestors who lived inside this cave.

READY TO RUMBLE
IN HIS BRAVE NEW WORLD
In the middle of the summer heat and everyone’s wet foreheads, Juan Carlos “Jake” Cuenca
didn’t just stand like a live, calm, athletic Roman sculpture. He killed the hell of the photo shoot
as if he was anticipating a battle in the arena of his own. He entered the picture of the breezy and
eclectic house with his armor of conviction. Of course, he was a solid.

Jake wasn’t just prepared. He was damn ready.
You might not have seen Jake bask like this
before. This 31-year-old actor’s career appetite
is unrivaled. With his six-pack gladiator abs and
finely chiseled chest, Jake is more ripped and
ready reinventing himself. Think of a star that is
reborn with fire that is hard to be extinguished;
think of the direct sun’s core that burns that flare
because you just can’t help but feel that hot,
inimitable aura shooting from the inside – feel
that? That’s who Jake is. You’ll never know more,
not until he opens his mouth to speak.
“I try to change it, try to go against my instinct,
doing the scenes differently from whatever I’ve
done so far,” Jake says, with lively innocent eyes
and a cool army-cut bravado. A scoop of his
stark wardrobe is more than anything one could
ever notice, wearing black striped Adidas jacket
and large white Balenciaga kicks —all that in
his athletic, alpha aura. There’s a lot of fuel that
this raving soldier has to offer, and he is even
hungrier to reinvent himself—that’s how he is

He is not just that one unstoppable actor
we know as Isagani in Los Bastardos, with
ratings rising in the showbiz. We also saw
him in the films Eerie, and soap opera
Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin. He’s an actor who
loves to take acting seriously, and elevate
it with the natural habit of transforming it
into another kind of burning.
It’s been seventeen years. Time has
molded his persona to believe that he’s
as an artist first before he is a celebrity.
He’s taken quite a great time being ripe
like this, but his fortress of achievements
is grounded with his humility. With this,
he has come prepared for his more
challenging roles, he knows his thing,
even braver, and nobody can ever stop
him from being who he is.
“That [being a celebrity] fades very
quickly, I’ve learned that a loooong time
ago,” he says. He guards his career by
rejuvenating with the arts. “My career is
all about challenges,” he says. The actor
doesn’t do the same role twice. He dares
himself in every medium, referring his
trifecta of roles in television, film and just

We’ve been seeing him portray the protagonist role of Isagani Esperanza in ABS-CBN’s Los Bastardos. In the mainstream drama series, Isagani is a
strong-willed good bachelor with golden personality and vividly carved abs, but of all this boldness, he stumbles his words on women. We ask, how
Behind the shell of the alpha image that is Isagani is this artist called Jake and he did all that careful work defining the character, more than what’s
found in the face of the script. “What I look for in Isagani speaks from what is not written,” the artist reveals. “For me, what I’ve found in the script,
was…even though he [Isagani] is an alpha male, even though he is a hero, maybe he is not good on woman. So it’s something that’s not written and not
told, but that’s what I found in the script.” That maybe, ladies and gents, is worth thousands of more audience.
Now, the audience see Isagani move out fresh from the novelette, alive, open his eyes, face the sun, through the actor that is Jake. “So, what happens
is that it’s interesting to act out kasi parang tuwing kausap n’ya ‘yung babaeng mahal nya, ginagawa ko s’yang torpe, or he stumbles on his words, or
he doesn’t do the right thing. He tries to catch himself and that’s more interesting to act out.”
Jake doesn’t spare the chance describing the set of Los Bastardos with his bright face and clear, accented voice: “Every day is something new,”
he says, describing the scenes behind the drama series’ set. He says that it was a simply a happy set. The show is heavy soap opera drama, but in
contrast, the casts are having so much fun hanging out. “Everyone’s excited to take everyday,” Jake says.
“They’ve been very, very supportive. I try to guide them and teach them certain things. I’m the eldest.” He refers to the director, staff, and his co-actors
like Joseph Marco, Marco Gumabao, Albie Casiño, and Joshua Colet, whom he guides in terms of acting, saying that they’re not just brothers in the
series, but also behind the camera.

AN ARTIST MORE THAN A CELEBRITY
More than his defined body, we say
that Jake is a walking piece of art. He is
dynamic and he is incredibly furious with
it. He sees to it that his roles parallel with
his physical body. His roles shape him. He
was introduced in the 90s as a long-haired
lad with a bad boy image. In fact, he loved
that long tousled hairdo because it took
time to grow and it had sentimental value
to him, but his principle is
that – before everything else, he’s an artist
first. He cut his hair.
In his horror film, Eerie, with the caliber
of actresses like Bea Alonzo and Charo
Santos and in the television series Ikaw
Lang Iibigin with Kim Chiu, and Gerald
Anderson, Jake needed to physically
change to perform the role. “With all of
the body transformations that I’ve done,
from my last role which was the one with
Eerie, and Ikaw Lang Iibigin, I had to be
really thin,” he says.
In Los Bastardos, it’s a lot more different.
The role requires him to look bigger. “I
have been training twice a day, I have so
much energy. I still do triathlon, despite
busy schedule, despite having to be big
for the resistance training.” This time, he
lifts heavy weights to be Isagani, spare
the cardio for himself. He incorporates
salmon and vegetarian in his diet to get
bigger real quick. Imagine, he’s malleable
It will bring us back to 2011, when he
braved upon portraying a homosexual role
in Maala-ala Mo Kaya. The chiseled alpha
took it as a challenge. “It was the most
challenging [that time] because what I try
to go for when I accept roles is to try not
to make it stereotypical, not to make it
type-casted, I look for that which is very
challenging,” he says.
This proves that Jake is willing to serve his
audience the platter of change. He wants
to show that masterpiece nobody will
ever expect, because he changes a lot.
The world noticed him more but he only
noticed the truth.
“When you really love something, when
you’re really loyal and can get over any
sort of obstacles, and I think you can
say you’re a real man,” he adds. He
explains that while we live in modern
times time now he reckons that quirkyness
is something to be supported, not
disregarded and put aside. He thinks that
it’s also about individuality, of a journey of
being true to ourselves. “For me, parang
more than the stereotypical thinking of
what a real man looks like is just being
yourself. It’s a happier life if you allow
yourself to be free.“

THE CURTAIN COMES DOWN
Jake Cuenca’s core is found in theater. He is an alumnus of The Lee Strassberg Theatre and Film Institute. This is the home of Hollywood actors and
actresses like Alec Baldwin, Chris Evans, Uma Thurman, and Scarlett Johansson. In 2014, he won his first Best Actor Award from the International Film
Festival Manhattan for the indie movie Awaken. Last year, his theatrical debut was the play called Lungs, directed by Andrei Pamintuan. “Theater really
opens my eyes, because when it comes to theater, you can’t change things. You’re portraying literature, so you can’t change anything,” he says that
with eager eyes like everything seems to have taken place just yesterday. “I just keep busy and keep myself falling in love with the craft.”
Theater has undoubtedly morphed him as an artist, looking for something more. “[In theater,] you only have one goal. On stage, there’s no hiding,
there’s no take two. There’s no changing the piece, because it’s literature. At the same time, you have the audience and it’s a different thing. There
were these scenes from so many things. When doing it, I looked for something different,” he adds. He did one play as of this writing, but he knows that
every time he performs on stage, all that he feels is that hint of renewal, which made him better.
“I’m dying to perform [again] in the stage now. I’m already in the process of looking for my next play. Right now pa lang, I have such a busy schedule
very hectic one, I’ll always make time for the stage. That’s something I will always do, even if I have to lose money because of it, because I love
theater,” he adds.

HE IS FEARLESS
Jake is a warrior, he had a fair share of
struggles in his life; the bits of pieces of
heartaches and pain, just like a normal human,
but at the same time, he’s such an alchemist.
He transforms this bleak, unforgiving pain
to something golden, and takes it into his
advantage, using it to be a better actor. “I try to
really, really experience it. That’s how I’ve gone
though everything,” he says. Look at him now.
Just do it. You’ll see this star shine and look all
of the respect that he gained. He knows what’s
best for him, more than anything, respect, bro.
When he gets that respect from his audience
and fans, he keeps it. He believes that it means
the world to him. “More than fame, I work for
respect because respect lasts forever while
fame is very temporary,” he says.
Like a real Roman soldier, Jake is shielded
with his solid acting artillery. He surprises us
with his uncanny attacks in his own kind of
masterpiece. He goes out there and explores
the possibilities, but most importantly, he
innovates his art by being brave. He’s an expert
fighter and he never leaves his sight off the
field. He’s always there—thinking of a new
strategy on how to make us cry, how to make
us angry, how to make us ecstatic. Whatever
that is. He’s fearless, reckless to face this brave
new world. n
