Funtastyk Maine

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines – Maine Mendoza (photo) is living her dream these days. Thrust into the spotlight mid-2015, there has been no looking back since for the young lady, “Never kong inakala na makararating ako sa lugar na ‘to. I am doing what I really want to do and I am very thankful because of that.”

The YouTube sensation achieved superstardom when she started exchanging sweet nothings on air with Alden Richards in Eat, Bulaga!’s Kalyeserye as Yaya Dub.

But being in demand, she found out has its down side. “(It’s) not as easy as I thought it was,” she confessed, “I must admit that it is physically-tiring but I am humbled and really thankful that there are fans who support me. To me, that is the best part of the job.”

One of the perks of Maine’s job these days is being the cover girl of magazines where she gets to experiment with different looks and styles. She has also become one of the nation’s favorite celebrity endorsers in just over six months of being in showbiz. It’s a role that she takes very seriously, “I have to set an example because of all the personalities that we have, they still chose me to represent their products.”

She has set a rule when accepting and doing commercials and that is, “I should make sure that it is of quality because I know that having me as their endorser will affect people’s choices.” This is why she was elated when she was chosen to represent one of her favorites, CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino.  

“I got excited because this is another blessing and opportunity for me,“ she admitted.

The plus factor is that even before she was chosen to endorse it, Maine was already fan of CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino that is made from 100 percent young pork and has no salitre. “Kumakain na talaga ako ng CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino so super excited ako to do the project.”

Her belief in the product and her love for CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino made shooting the commercial a breeze, “The shoot was quite an experience for me as I have to show different emotions in just one commercial. I have to act serious, fierce, heart-broken and the like. Pero syempre I have my favorite part. The consumption scene! Finally, I was able to express the real me, kengkoy and fun. Fantastic baby pa more!”

She also loves CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino because as she pointed out, “It’s delicious. It’s very tender because it’s gawa sa young pork at hindi sa inahing baboy. Hindi malitid!” Maine emphasized. “It’s so easy to cook, too! Walang ka-hassle-hassle i-prepare. Hindi sya nag-i-stick sa pan unlike other brands!” These are bonus points to someone like her who doesn’t really spend much time in the kitchen.  

“Also,” she added, “it has low shrinkage when cooked compared to other brands with high shrinkage. ‘Yung iba, sobrang lumiliit kapag niluluto. Turn off.”

Maine likens her love for her newest endorsement as a testament to young love. “The beauty of young love is pure and carefree. You enjoy and be yourself without any worries. Parang fun and puro good vibes lang.”  

As she points out, eating CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino is like that. It’s delicious and something you can eat without any worries.

“Talagang young ang love ko,” Maine added. “Why settle for anything less than CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino?”

That’s Maine for you — carefree, pure and “young ang love…” with CDO Funtastyk Young Pork Tocino.
