                    [Summary] => You have to have passion for what you do. If you want to have fun on Christmas, have fun. Don’t spend it with half the fun you want to have. That’s passion. That’s what Freddie Garcia is all about. Risqué, I would say when asked to describe his style. In this business when everything is fleeting, you have to be daring. You have to learn how to challenge and taunt your comfort zone. There’s a thin line between committing a mistake and making a brilliant move. And in that small space that separates the two lies brilliance.

                    [Summary] => Tomorrow is Christmas Day. Have a merry one! We have so much to thank for. We are alive and we can choose to be happy. We can choose to be kind. It’s healthier to smile than to smirk or pout. After all, Santa Claus doesn’t like children who pout. So you better watch out!

Currently, the impressive tandem of Eugenio Lopez III and Federico M. Garcia has continued in the same vein, breaking new ground and maintaining a competitive edge in the industry.

Some go even go before they come. Today you have a show, tomorrow you can be tending your garden in peace and quiet. But inarguably, television is a most exciting world, where some names are revered, others are reviled.

In Philippine television, one name will linger forever, for his, is one of the most revered and respected and deservedly so. "He" is FMG to many, Federico M. Garcia when he signs contracts, Freddie when he is fondly addressed.

I had gotten used to darkness that I had come to sort of like it especially after I discovered the infinite possibilities it could offer. But I also don’t mind having the lights on. I am sinfully adjustable.

A couple of months in ABS-CBN, I found my way to the office of "FMG" (Freddie M. Garcia, ABS-CBN’s President).
