Anabelle Rama now an author

Don’t raise your eyebrows, folks, if you see a book in your favorite bookstores with Annabelle Rama as the author.

Yes, the feisty mother of movie/TV celebrities Ruffa, Richard and Raymond Gutierrrez has spread her wings wider by going into book writing.

Last year, on Dec. 15, her book was launched. It is called Day, Hard (read it like Die Hard, she’s Cebuana, you know) (Lakas ng Loob, Kapal ng Mukha).

The book, she says, is candid, frank and no holds barred, but in truth she also withheld certain juicy gossips as she doesn’t want to end up in court, again.

She said it took her a year to compile everything she knows, being a media personality herself, a talent manager, and one time politician.

So, she said, she hoped readers would find wisdom in her book. It talks a lot about herself, too, her love, work and how she handles money.

Apart from answering questions about love, like the oft asked love at first sight and long distance relationships, Rama also delves into techniques in enticing a prospective partner using gayuma. Also she gives tips in how to tear a rival’s hair.

Day, Hard also deals with career and family aspects.

The book also has amusing drawings and activities to entertain the readers. If you’re not a fan of the Gutierrez family, you may find the book a piece of amusement. But for the fans, the book gives them an opportunity to know more Annabelle Rama through her anecdotes, like when her father shaved her head when she went home the day after. And the book will also tell you why “Please Release Me” is Eddie’s theme song for her.

ABS-CBN Publishing has added to the list of celebrity books Day, Hard! 

Annabelle joins bestselling authors Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, Alex Gonzaga, Georgina Wilson, Solenn Heussaff and Ramon Bautista.

Day, Hard! is available at National Book Store and Powerbook branches nationwide for P175.00 each.

“We are putting our full trust in Franz,” said Fr. Bañaga Jr. “While we do not expect an instant transformation nor do we expect the Falcons to land as champions in one year, we are optimistic that he will build us back into a competitive team,” he said.

Adamson is drawing encouragement from the community, management and sponsors. Akari, the country’s top lighting and technology brand, has been a strong supporter and sponsor of the Adamson Soaring Falcons for two years, including the women’s volleyball team. Their solid support to the university is part of the brand’s youth development and sports program. Alvin Patrimonio, Asi Taulava, Jeron Teng and Kiefer Ravena are part of Akari’s roster of past and present brand ambassadors.
