There could only be one Eddie Garcia, a tough act to follow There was no premonition at all. When Eddie Garcia bade Lilibeth Romero, his partner of 33 years, goodbye that morning of June 8, a Saturday, Lilibeth noticed nothing unusual. “He told the maid to wake him up at 4 a.m., then he had a breakfast of cereals and bananas, and he was off to the set,” recalled Lilibeth to The STAR, the only paper she agreed to talk to a few days after the accident that left Eddie in Glasgow Coma scale 3 (the lowest rating, highest is 15) at the Makati Medical Center (MCC) where he was transferred from the Mary Johnston Hospital in Tondo where he was rushed DOA (Dead On Arrival) but was revived posthaste. “I even teased him,” continued Lilibeth, “uy, you are the first to arrive on the set again, ha.

As a relatively new father, I feel I don’t have much to contribute to the conversation. I feel terribly unqualified. I lack experience. My son was only born in late 2017. I also feel I have bad paternal instincts. I don’t know how to calm my one-year old son when he is crying. I don’t know how to hold his attention during teaching moments. I don’t know how to stop him from watching too many videos. I don’t know how to get him back on healthy food after treats from well meaning loved ones.

MANILA, Philippines — There is a day in a year wherein children get to show their appreciation for their selfless and untiring love that only a mother can provide. There is really no way to match the amount of love that flows from the heart of a mother, but it is always a good idea to reciprocate by treating mom to the gifts that match her heart’s desires. For the pretty in pink mom Cara Delevingne for Dior Addict Stellar Shine Pink, according to Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, is the color of happiness, freedom and femininity, which is why it was among the most favorite colors and the “lucky color” of legendary designer Christian Dior. As such, the brand recently launched Dior Addict Stellar Shine, a new collection of 24 luminous pink hues, ranging from subtle nudes, to fiery corals, seductive reds and bold plums.
