When I was invited to attend a "Thank Giving Lunch with John Lloyd Cruz" at Annebel's in Tomas Morato, I couldn't say no because I was very eager to see John Lloyd Cruz in person. Who wouldn't right? All his movies ends up being a blockbuster. It's no surprise that "Unofficially Yours" is also a Box Office Hit.
As a teen, I used to watch "Gimik" and "Tabing Ilog" where John Lloyd Cruz as a young actor first appeared. Back then, who would've imagined that he would be hailed as Box Office King. We all know that being a Box Office King doesn't involve only looks and talent. It also takes a lot of hard work.
It made me wonder how he is able to keep up with all the work requirements he has. During the Thanks Giving Lunch, I was surprised to find our that John Lloyd is a very humble person with a sense of humor too. He shared to us that despite his perfect appearance when we watch him in films, he is only a person just like us. He sometimes feel tired and stressed too. He also admits that headaches and fevers are unavoidable which is why he partnered with Biogesic which is as effective as he is.
He happily signed his 6th year contract with Biogesic. When it was announced, I was like...Wow! Six years na pala yun! =p
He gave thankful words to Biogesic for renewing his contract with them. For six long years even before his rise to Box Office Kinghood, he has relied upon Biogesic which is effective against headaches and fevers and safe to take on an empty stomach. Together, both John Lloyd Cruz and Biogesic are effective in doing their job.
What I learned from John Lloyd Cruz during the event was that, its's okay to be an ordinary person with weaknesses as long as we strive hard to conquer them. Some people give up or back out from a little headache but not John Lloyd Cruz.
