Marc Anthony Nicolas 2016 was a good year for me. I turned 40. I don’t look my age thanks to my dermatologist, Dr. Tess Mauricio. I won the 2016 Emmy. I was ranked #1 in the list of “Most Influential Filipino-Americans” by Blog Talk. Boy Abunda interviewed me in Los Angeles. Finally, I was a judge in the Miss CA USA pageant. The winner represents California and competes in Miss USA 2017. For the new year, I want everyone to be happy and to start every day with a grateful heart. Be thankful. It’s not how much you have, it’s how much you can give. 2018, ready or not… Here I come

MJ Racadio Thank you! for catching-up with my very famous and yet very humble friend in so called #Hollywood or #Lalaland. Regards to the hosts of #TheTalk and don’t forget to shout-out. Before ending this catching-up, Tell me your favorite Filipino Food, Places in The#Philippines, The Best #Filipino moments.

Marc Anthony Nicolas My favorite food is pancit and lumpia. Every place in the Philippines is amazing but I really want to go to Palawan. My favorite Filipino moment is when I visited the Philippines during the holidays and everyone was at my Lola and Lolo’s house eating and singing. It was so fun! They would light the firecracker, Sinturon ni Judas which put a smile on my face.
