LUIS HONTIVEROS

BODY

MIND

SOUL

Just like a blank slate, the new year gives us the fresh start we need. But other than that, it marks the start

of a new decade. 2020 opens up to new possibilities, new challenges, and even a new set of goals. For LUIS

HONTIVEROS, it’s about balancing the good things he’s already been doing and everything he’s supposed to

do. Hopeful and eager, he wants to set things out on the right foot -- be it with his fitness, his outlook in life,

or how he works with others.

BODY

“Eat what you can burn and burn what you

can eat.”

Known for his towering stature and lean

physique, this 27-year-old looker trains

extra hard. This allows him to eat what he

wants, too. His mantra about diets? He

doesn’t have one. Aside from intermittent

fasting, he doesn’t restrict his wants

that much. As long as he doesn’t starve

himself, he’d indulge on the food he loves.

“I don’t like to go on a diet since I really

love to eat -- I love rice and pasta. I

just make sure to train harder,” he

says. “Personally, I avoid sweets, soda,

processed food, and any kind of junk. The

rest, I enjoy. Try to find the diet that works

for you. But also the one you enjoy so you

can avoid getting frustrated. The same

goes for training,” he adds.

10 | VILLAGE PIPOL MNP @villagepipol


FITNESS IS A

LIFESTYLE

Luis isn’t a fitness guru, but he

understands his body enough to

know what he needs. If he knows

he’d have a long day at work, he

goes for that extra rice or even a

dessert. But if he knows he'd just be

chilling and won’t be doing much,

he’d only consume enough for that

day.

“The thing about diet and training

is that everything doesn’t work the

same for everyone. It’s basically trial

and error. If you’re a newbie in your

fitness journey, then I’d suggest to

eat accordingly to the amount of

activity you’ve planned for the day,”

he advises.

Like with anything in life, Luis thinks

it’s better to educate oneself before

trying out a certain diet or fitness

plan. It’s important to completely

understand how things work to

maximize effects on the body.

“For the past year, I’ve been focused

on training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu,

surfing, and yoga. Sometimes, I play

sports like basketball, boxing, and

Muay Thai. I also lift weights when

the laziness doesn’t kick in,” he

shares with a smirk.

Luis finds it convenient to be

physically fit for his job. However,

rather than solely relying on his

looks or his even name, he makes

sure that his capabilities as a model

and an actor stand out to get him

roles.

TRAVEL• LIFESTYLE• ENTERTAINMENT

MIND

“I hope everyone will be more openminded.

Let’s stop invalidating the ideas

or emotions that people have or are going

through.”

Being physically fit should also mean

being mentally healthy. But most of the

time, compared to the body, the mind

is the hardest thing to train. To break

the stigma, Luis says talking about our

emotions with people important to us

truly helps.

“We should never feel afraid of talking

about our emotions to our friends and

family,” he exclaims. “But it isn't always

easy to seek help at all. But I do encourage

that we try to find the courage to open up

so we don’t get stuck in that dark place we

struggle to get away from,” he explains

further.

12 | VILLAGE PIPOL MNP @villagepipol


VP/COVER

SELF-AWARENESS IS

THE KEY

In an industry that’s so critical about

how one should look, say, and even feel,

peace of mind is more of a necessity than

anything else. But awareness of ourselves

goes beyond a blossoming career or the

number of years someone has worked.

Who ever you may be, you’d have to take

care of yourself.

“Most of us aren’t willing to admit to

ourselves that we’re already suffering. This

could be because we’re too afraid to talk

about it; because we think that we might

get judged; because some people would

look down on us if we share our struggles.

Just because some don’t understand or

even believe, doesn’t mean that mental

illnesses aren’t real,” he explains with a

serious face.

There is nothing wrong with asking

for help or for support. The mind is a

powerful thing and sometimes it could be

too much for one to bear alone. For Luis,

all we need is kindness.

TRAVEL• LIFESTYLE• ENTERTAINMENT

www.villagepipol.com | 13


SOUL

“Don’t you think it would be great if we

were all sources of peace of mind for each

other?”

Finding the right balance between a

healthy body and a sound mind is a

challenge in itself. But it’s a challenge Luis

has been taking on even before starting

out on his career.

“We may know people like our friends

and family but we don’t always know

what they’re going through,” he says.

“We should try to be more compassionate

towards others. Let’s educate ourselves

about these kind of topics since we

already have access to unlimited amount

of information today. Let’s make our world

a safer space for everyone with or without

mental illnesses,” he adds with hope in his

voice.

14 | VILLAGE PIPOL MNP @villagepipol


A WORK IN PROGRESS

With the new decade upon us, we’re

certainly in the age of information. All

we need is a few taps of our fingers

and everything right on our palms. But

information without responsibility is a

two-way street.

“A simple tweet or Facebook post could

definitely affect and tip the balance of

someone’s state of mind or well being,” he

sternly says. “We have a responsibility to

utilize these tools appropriately since we

all live in one planet. Let’s make sure m

we make it a place of safety and peace of

mind,” he adds.

What one does to someone else could

easily be done to them or to anyone they

know. Luis has slowly learned to become

unfazed about unwarranted criticisms.

Instead of fighting back, he takes these as

learning experience. When things do get

to him, he refocuses his energy to a more

productive one: exercise.

“One thing that works for me and helps

me achieve a more positive state of

mind is by staying physically healthy. It

compliments my overall mental state. We

all have different ways of coping, but I

think what works more is when we seek

the appropriate support system of our

choosing,” he finally says.

A healthy body, a sound mind, and a

happy soul are things to yearn for. It

doesn’t have to be the new year or a new

decade to know that we need to change

our lifestyles. Importantly, it doesn’t take

much to be kind. To yourself or to others.

KELVIN

MIRANDA

What a way to end the year and start the decade. Opportunities have been coming in and out, but for Kelvin Miranda, opportunities

lingered on the edges until he finally felt ready for the long haul. Just turned 21, Kelvin’s career is skyrocketing faster than you can say

2020, la”.

For someone who initially didn’t plan on

joining showbiz, Kelvin has managed to

capture our hearts with his boy-nextdoor

looks and mischievous charm. With

everything laid out on the table, he shows

that he has a pure heart and an old soul.

Charged with youthful hopes and simple

dreams, this breakthrough actor may still

have a lot to prove. But he’s definitely a good

kid to look out for.

TRAVEL• LIFESTYLE• ENTERTAINMENT

www.villagepipol.com | 17


A SHAKY START

“Dati kasi, ayoko talaga mag artista.”

When you’re stuck doing something you have

zero interest in, work becomes a burden. For

Kelvin, he always wanted to act but actual

show business was a bit daunting. He has

shown potential even when his heart wasn’t

completely in it, but the people around him

continued to show their support.

“Sinubukan talaga ako ng manager ko.

Pinakilala lang ako ng ate ko sa kanya

hanggang sa tri-ny ko mag-audition sa ganito,

sa ganyan, sa ibang network. At nakukuha

naman ako sa mga auditions. Pero ‘di ko sila

pinupuntahan kasi wala pa akong kumpyansa

‘gaya ngayon na kapag may proyekto, go lang

ako,” he says sheepishly.

18 | VILLAGE PIPOL MNP @villagepipol


A NEW LEAF

“Noong mga panahong ‘yon talagang natatakot

ako kasi ayoko sa kritisismo. Medyo ayaw ko

mapag-usapan kaya ayaw ko sa showbiz.”

Starting out, Kelvin realized his new

environment affected him more than he

expected. But now that he’s gotten used to

with the workings of the industry, he’s driven

to strive and to become better at his craft. His

turning point? It was when he realized acting

and getting projects made him genuinely

happy.

“Itong trabaho ko ang nagpapasaya sa ‘kin.

Kasi parang ‘di ako napapagod everytime

na ginagawa ko siya. Masaya lang ako.

Kahit sobrang puyat, talagang okay lang, go

pa rin. Minsan kapag may pahinga ako na

araw, hinahanap ko ‘yung pagod ng galing sa

ginagawa ko,” he exclaims. “Nagkaroon na ako

ng lakas ng loob. Nakikita ko naman kasi na

kaya ko pala dito sa loob ng industry,” he adds.

A LONG-TERM PLAN

“Gusto ko maging aktor at gusto ko magexplore

kung ano ‘yung mga puwede ko pang

maranasan sa ibang role. Na-aapply ko kasi

siya sa tunay na buhay.”

No one knows what’s in store, but it is reliable

to invest for the future. Kelvin believes he’d

be acting in the years to come, but he makes

sure he’ll gain from it all. He sees himself

continuously doing what he loves.

“Siguro in ten years, mas focused ako sa

business or family matters,” he shares. “Wala

naman kasi akong gusto ‘kundi magkaroon

ako ng bahay, maayos at kumpleto na pamilya,

maayos na anak, maayos na business.

‘Yung tipong di mo na kailangan mangamba

‘pag gigising sa umaga. Kasi wala ka nang

dapat pang isipin. Ang kailangan mo na lang

ingatan ay ‘yung pamilya mo,” he says while

smiling at the possibilities.

A DREAM COME TRUE

“Umikot-ikot ako sa bahay namin as in sobrang

gulong talaga.”

Kelvin has been in the scene since 2016. He’d

been calm and steady, and has even bagged

a couple of awards and nominations. But his

claim to fame came unexpectedly. As a matter

of fact, it came to a great surprise — it was in

the form of Dead Kids, a must-do Netflix and

chill.

When asked about the moment he learned

about their movie being the first Filipino

Netflix-backed show, he literally rolled over.

“Ayaw sabihin sa akin ni Direk! Kinukulit ko kasi

sila alam na nila. Surprise daw! Hanggang sa

nalaman ko, ‘di ako mapakali. Sinabi nila sakin

nung nag-bonding kami nila direk. Nadulas

lang siya. Aksidente ko pang nalaman!” he says

laughing out loud.

A STORY TO TELL

“Si Direk Mik, made-describe ko siya in one

word: Solid.”

Kelvin has a lot of actors he’d like to share a

scene with. But aside from them, he also has

a list of directors he’d like to work with one

day. He’s proud that he’s slowly checking off

his list. One of those people he’d finally been

able to work with is the multi-awarded director,

Mikhael Red. Kelvin has nothing but praise for

him:

“Di siya marunong magalit, sobra. Napaka

kalmado niyang tao. Nase-stressed na siya,

pero ang galing niya mag-control ng situation.

At sa sobrang collaborative at hands-on niya, ‘di

siya natatakot alalayan ka or mag-spoon feed

sayo, dahil sa kagustuhan niyang pagandahin

‘yung kalalabasan ‘nung pelikula. Sobrang

mapagbigay siya sa kaalaman. One of the

coolest directors!”

20 | VILLAGE PIPOL MNP @villagepipol


ALWAYS A GOOD KID

“Gusto lang namin ma-realize ng tao ‘yung

tema ng Dead Kids.”

A good movie, apart from the entertainment, is

one that mixes real life well with fiction. With

Dead Kids, it’s a mix of humor, thrill, and truth

about teenagers in this day and age. And as

part of the youth the show intends to reach,

Kelvin says the movie opened his eyes with an

even relatable context.

“Gumising ako sa katotohanan na ‘di lahat

ng may kapangyarihan is yung dapat na

mamamayagpag. Dapat mas pahalagahan pa

natin yung mga taong totoo. Kasi sa ngayon,

life is unfair talaga,” he sighs. “Sana magbigay

linaw sa ‘tin kung anong dapat gawin sa

mundong ginagalawan natin ngayon, sa

sistema, sa pakikisalamuha sa mga tao.

‘Di lang sa isa, ‘di lang sa dalawa. Siyempre sa

lahat,” he ends on a hopeful note.

The new decade brings in a lot of good things

for this good kid: a budding career, a steaming

filmography, and (finally) a Twitter account

that he can use to reach out to his peers and

fans. Who ever said Kelvin’s a dead kid? After

the runaway success he’d gone through, we’re

hoping he’s on a roll.

VP/BEAUTY

BODY SCRUB

The exfoliating granules help to slough off

dead skin. The rubbing action, then, boosts

circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes

through increasing blood flow to the skin’s

surface. Aside from massaging the body, the

exfoliating factor transforms it into a cleansing

aromatherapy session.

MICROBLADING

Using a small handheld tool, this tattooing

technique adds semi-permanent pigment to

the skin. Sometimes called embroidery, this

creates, enhances and reshapes one’s eyebrows

in terms of both shape and color.

AMITY NAIL SALON AND BODY SPA

IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR A

GIRLS' DAY OUT!

Looking for a place to rejuvenate with your

girlfriends? Gossip, do your nails, and get

a massage at Amity Nail Salon & Body Spa.

They have every service that guarantees to

leave you relaxed and at ease. We’ve been

there and let me tell you, we truly felt like we

were on cloud nine.

“Quality and affordability meets! They have

excellent service and my favorite service that

they offer are the following: microblading,

eyelash extensions and gel polish!” – Alexandra

Faith Garcia

Amity Nail Salon & Body Spa is the perfect

place for a girls’ day out!

Owner Ailynn Joy Flores named their salon and

spa after its synonym friendliness that remains

their founding core.

“We started this business last June 2018… At

first, I didn’t think that I would be in this line

of work being a graduate of Hotel and Resort

Management. However, when we sourced out

businesses that we could do due to its demandwe

thought beauty, wellness and aesthetics

would be perfect.”

THAI MASSAGE

A traditional healing system that included

acupressure. This helps people relax and

temporarily relieve muscle and/or joint pain.

This also boosts a person’s mood and can even

go far beyond those effects that can contribute

to one’s clinical health.

HOT STONE MASSAGE

Placing smooth, flat and heated rocks at key

points on the body, this massage helps relieve

muscle tension and pain. Aside from that, it also

reduces stress and anxiety that you get from

your daily struggles.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Although similar to a Swedish massage, this

actually puts more pressure. While this may

be more intense, one shouldn’t feel any pain or

soreness. It remains a good option for people

with chronic muscle problems which includes

soreness and/or imbalance. This also relieves

tight muscles, chronic muscle pain and anxiety.

EYELASH EXTENSIONS

Enhancing the length, curliness, fullness

and thickness of natural eyelashes, it uses

an adhesive glue to individually stick the

extensions the eyelash line. Just like natural

eyelashes, the extensions also fall out which

remains the reason why it needs filling up about

every three (3) weeks.

EYELASH PERM

Treated with a perm solution, it is also followed

by a neutralizer and nourishing oil that

reconditions and strengthens the lashes. With

chemicals involved, like any procedure, there

is also some risk. That’s why only licensed and

trained people can flip up eyelashes using hair

perming technology.

EYEBROW TINT

Less painful than microblading, this defines

your eyebrows through a process of applying

semi-permanent dye. It gives the appearance

of a thicker and more youthful looking brows

that matches one’s natural color. This lasts from

three to six weeks.

FACIAL

There are also different kinds of masks

for different purposes. This includes deep

cleansing which penetrates the pores, heals

acne scars or hyper-pigmentation; brightening

for gradual illumination of the skin tone. Facials,

then, include revitalizing, healing, or refreshing.

MANI & PEDI

Gossip, do your nails and get a massage at

Amity Nail Salon & Body Spa!

She trains her therapists and employees to be

the best they can be. However, she pointed out

that she only hires respectful and courteous

employees.Having chivalrous employees makes

her mind peaceful because that way, they

will surely take care of the customers. As a

28-year-old businesswoman, Flores has her own

message to women who would like to enter in

the same industry.

“Huwag lang silang matatakot mag-try. Kasi,

ang business parang sugal lang talaga siya,

diba? So, hindi mo malalaman kung hindi mo

it-try. Kapag nagkaroon ka na ng business,

importante talaga ‘yung marketing strategy

talaga…”
