Where to eat? What to eat? Where to travel? What to see? All these questions can be answered perfectly and enthusiastically by Philip Abadicio, the jolly and humurous man behind PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! This lifestyle show, airing in TV5 every Sunday from 11AM to 12NN, features episodes with exciting segments about the latest trends, newest restaurants, hangout places and other great finds in the metro.

As a result of the success of PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 1 (13 episodes), it was set that the program would have a whole new season for everyone to catch this February 2014! 😀

 Philip and me : )

Who is Philip Abadicio?

Last Saturday, we celebrated the launch of PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 2. I arrived early at the venue, Chef Laudico Guevarra’s, with my sister and familiarized ourselves foremost with the setting.  Then suddenly, I was approached by a man.

“Hello, I’m Philip.” was all he said as he introduced himself humbly. Half starstruck and half embarrassed, I nodded slowly to acknowledge his presence and spoke my name in turn with a smile. I gotta mark my calendar: February 8, 2014 — the day I finally got to meet Philip Abadicio in flesh and upclose. Hey, this guy is inspirational, the best at what he does!


Bloggers at the Event

For years, Philip Abadicio has been writing about the newest, the most delicious, the best dressed, the ultimately exclusive, and the lives of the rich and raunchy. His bio states that “as a PR man, he established RPA & Communicate where he mastered the ropes of the lifestyle industry.” Philip has hosted a lifestyle news program for the Global News Network, “Style RPA TV,” and a lifestyle magazine talk show called “It’s More Fun with Philip.”

With growing number of viewers Philip calls as “lifestylers,” his contract was renewed and he was given another break. Thus he now continues to provide more inspiring things in his show. The latter quarter of 2013 was when PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 1 came about.

PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 2 – Real, Personal and All-that Style

In this new season, you can expect to learn more about art and style of living with loads of fun. Media Maven Philip Abadicio explains that it’s a program that will educate, entertain and inspire all of us at the confines of our living room. Produced by Style RPA Media, directed by Dave Hukom and Tootoots Leyesa, and written by Rod Divinagracia, PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 2 will show you how to celebrate and live a good life in whatever status, situation or circumstance you have right now.

If given a chance, I would also want to have a lifestyle show on TV. After auditioning for Chinoy TV and backing out because of a better opportunity, I realized that it’s a dream that comes only for a selected few. I might as well concentrate on my career as an IT professional and attend colorful events during weekends as a blogger on this site. Nyahaha okay enough of me… 😛

Remember to turn your TV on and stay tuned to PHILIP Lifestyle Guy! Season 2 every Sunday from 11AM to 12NN on TV5. Viewers can interact with Philip by commenting through his Facebook page and tweeting or replying to his posts on Twitter. Everyone is invited to join online contests where cool prizes await. Visit his website for more details and updates! 😀

      I felt like that too when I was living abroad. You can always check YouTube videos for recorded videos of this show’s episodes. I’ve seen there are some uploaded as well in his site. Thanks, Laarnie!

      Through a quick Google search, I had a new learning today thanks to you. I once thought iWantv only showcases shows from ABS CBN! Now I can watch video-on-demand programs on Studio 23 as well. Not sure for TV5 shows.

      Yes, I think most of us naman would want to become the limelight in the crowd and be proud about it. In due time, we’ll make our dreams come true if we are strong in pursuing them still. 😉

    Will definitely watch out for this. You have pretty great audience in your blog, so I guess that counts as your own show for now. Good luck! 🙂

      Thanks, Sam! Yup, much like hosting a show, blogging is a way of presenting ideas through words, pictures, animations, videos, and other forms. The good thing is that I won’t merit any high popularity that would make others somehow invade my privacy whenever I’m out. 3:)

      Lifestyle shows like Philip’s are also called ‘infotainment’ because they are both informative and entertaining. Even if the show is about a serious, the presentation tends to still be light and entertaining. The thing I like about watching it is that I don’t need to exert so much effort understanding the topic. 😀

    How’s the food at Guevarra’s? heard that it’s delicious! Too brad wasn’t able to attend the event. I’ll watch the first episode of season 2 on Sunday 🙂

      Haha. As for talent, I realized I have to improve my communication skills – small talks. Being a host requires being credible with the audience and this involves having to build rapport first and speak like they’re old friends.

      Yeahaha way to go. 🙂 I also don’t watch TV often because I’m at work or out of the house most of the time, but I try to catch his episodes to be in the know.

    Philip is such a wonderful person whom you met in this product launch. I have to admit that I am quite confused of the term you used “delicious” to refer to a dress. Why are misusing it?

    I need to remember this. I have not watched any TV show for a long time now. I need to watch this because I wanna learn new things too. 🙂

    You need a follow-up stunt like this with some famous people to engage fully with your chosen job. Hosting some events will be of great help for you. Good luck!

    Truth be told, I’ve only watch less than 3 episodes of Philip The Lifestyle Guy due to my busy schedules and how i wish there’s a certain place online where I can catch up with the episodes. But i gotta say his show is sleek and chic for someone who writes about lifestyle as well. 🙂

      I also don’t get to watch every single episode but I try to catch up by reading his blog posts. Yup, they should have a site where past episodes can be viewed.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about him. I can’t remember when was the last time I watched TV, like yung sinusubaybayan ko talaga. I’ll take note of his show 🙂 I want to have my own lifestyle show too 😀

    wrong choice for TV5 to give his show a 2nd season.
    ayun! e di nawala din kagad at ni hindi tinapos ang contract!
    i’ve heard na madaming tinakbuhan o hindi nabayaran ng show na ito which include him as an associate producer.

    ingat lang sa mga ganito!
