What better way to show someone—or in this case, an entire country—your love than by giving a love letter? Bench, however, went all-out with this grand romantic gesture to the Philippines by publishing a book instead.
The Love Local book was launched on August 18 to celebrate Bench’s 28th year in the industry. Love Local was created as "a celebration of the lives, talents, passions, and movements that make the country we live in."
Here are some celebs featured inside the book + what #LoveLocal means to them:
"Love your own imperfections." —Kathryn Bernardo
Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes love the little things, like pandesal dipped in kapeng barako.
Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez are bound by two things—their love for each other and for Original Pilipino Music.
"I would like to see more dramas, family stories, action, horror. Whatever it is viable to the public. I work on anything because it's my job and it's something I'll do and keep doing as long as I can do it." —Eddie Garcia
"The Filipino is very musically inclined and they will know. You really have to give them your best." —Pilita Corales
The Love Local Book is now available at selected Bench Stores in Metro Manila for only P445.
