Due to the massive success of its first ever Fan Conference in Manila, global fashion brand Penshoppe will be bringing in Mario Maurer and Baifern Pimchanok to headline its first ever Cebu Fan Conference on August 17 (Sunday), 5PM at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu.
Fans will get the chance to get up close and personal with Mario and Baifern through a special Penshoppe promo. From August 8-10, customers can get a free Penshoppe FanCon 2014 entry pass with any purchase inclusive of a pair of Penshoppe pants or jeans. The first 100 people to get entry passes and present their Penshoppe Card will also get an exclusive pass for a group photo with Mario and Baifern.
These young, in demand celebrities became wildly popular in the country after starring in the 2010 sleeper hit First Love (Crazy Little Thing Called Love). With their strong Filipino fan base and equally strong sense of style, both Mario and Baifern gained admittance in Penshoppe’s exclusive roster of international endorsers.
Filipinos are no strangers to Mario Maurer. Mario won Best Actor in the 2008 Cinemanila International Film Festival for his break out role in the critically acclaimed drama, The Love of Siam and starred opposite Filipina actress Erich Gonzales in the romantic film Suddenly It’s Magic. In 2013, Mario starred in the hit Thai horror comedy Pee Mak, which has earned more than 1 billion baht ($33 million) in revenue worldwide (mostly in Asia). Currently, it is the highest grossing Thai film and one of Asia’s highest grossing films of all time. It has been screened internationally in countries like Indonesia, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Cambodia, Australia, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines, China, South Korea and the United States.
His strikingly boyish good looks, and cool, free-spirited style clicked with Penshoppe, which officially made him the brand’s endorser in 2011, and even walking the runways for the brand’s show at Philippine Fashion Week during the same year.
Baifern, on the other hand, is currently a student at the Srinakharinwirot University. This gorgeous ingénue is a model and actress whose flirty and feminine fashion (though she can pull off sexy quite well too) also caught the eye of the local retail powerhouse, becoming its muse in 2012.
After her turn as Nam in First Love (A Little Thing Called Love), she starred in several Thai films, and played a guest role in Mario’s first Filipino movie Suddenly It’s Magic. She has also been featured in a number of music videos and advertisements in her native country.
Penshoppe has over 300 branches in the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Saudi Arabia, and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

Careless’ WAVY BABY Takes Over Sinulog
Careless’ first ever music festival, Wavy Baby, is bound to make the return of Sinulog one for the books.
Wavy Baby is a two-day music festival happening on January 13-14, 2023 at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu with a lineup of over 20 artists recognized both locally and internationally.
Wavy Baby will feature international performers Pink Sweat$, Bambam, Sunmi, The Rose, Bag Raiders, Manila Grey, and Yultron.

The festival will also feature local Cebuano acts such as Cookie$, The Sundown, Mandaue Nights, Three Legged Men, and Wonggoys.
Careless’ CEO, Jeffrey Oh, says “We’re really excited to do Wavy Baby in Sinulog because it’s the biggest and most historic festival in the Philippines. We want to build a festival that brings the best of the Philippines and the world together to meet and celebrate life and culture, which is what Sinulog is all about. We call it Wavy Baby because we want a wavy lifestyle and a wavy mindset. It also pays homage to Sinulog because the Sinulog symbols are water and the baby Jesus so it’s also a nod to that as well. We’re excited to be part of the Cebu family and build something special that hopefully we can repeat year after year.”
The festival itself will be held at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu. There will be an Artist Lounge, VVIP Lounge, a VIP Area in front of the stage, Cocktail Pods, Sponsor’s Hives, and Market Pod.
The Cocktail Pod serves as an area for anyone to purchase drinks at the venue while the Market Pod is designated for food and other merchandise that will be sold. The Sponsor’s Hive will be where Wavy Baby’s brand partners will have different booths that festival goers can visit.
