My husband and I love to drink Great Taste White Coffee so when I got an invitation to a Great Taste event, I immediately signed up. I was curious to meet the new celebrity endorser of this coffee brand, knowing that this personality should love the same coffee that we drink.
The theme of the event was Choose To Be Great. It was held at the Crown Plaza in Ortigas, Pasig City and the highlight was the soon to be released video campaign featuring the matinee idol John Lloyd Cruz. The video shows how Great Taste and John Lloyd show respect and admiration to the little acts of greatness Filipinos show in their daily lives.
I don’t know much about John Lloyd Cruz except a little about his love life. When I saw him for the first on stage in this event, he smiled shyly and he was so charming with his dimples. I thought he is the perfect “boy-next-door” type. But I saw how accomplished this man is and I’ve read about his properties already accumulated from his career. But still, he remains humble about all of these. That is maybe his secret why he stays as one of the sought-after actors, that he knows he is great but still remained down to earth and acknowledging his shortcomings. Great Taste Coffee chose well.
Apart from John Lloyd, media guests were treated to various activities that showcased Great Taste’s celebration of the Filipino’s everyday greatness. Gift certificates and hotel staycation were also given as prizes. Great Taste Coffee brand owner Universal Robina Corporation (URC) knows how to make people feel good and great, just perfect for the name of the brand. I wish that I’d be able to participate in more of their events.
True, we can all choose to be great in our own ways. Just like John Lloyd when he said that he chooses to be great just by being himself, giving all his best and presenting himself to the world, I choose to make myself great by becoming the best woman I want to be, a great friend, a great wife and a great mom. As simple as these tasks may be, I am sure I am able to make the people around me happy. I try to avoid making people feel less about themselves because it is our duty to uplift others. In the end, all good things will be reciprocated by our good Lord in heaven.
