Aiai Delas Alas-Sibayan, Nagpasalamat sa Patuloy Na Pagtitiwala sa Kanya ng HOBE bilang Endorser


Isa si Ms. Aiai Delas Alas-Sibayan sa mga artistang patuloy na pinagkakatiwalaan ng mga  produkto at brands pagdating sa mga endoresements dahil naniniwala sila na malaki ang maitutulong ni Ms. Aiai para mas makilala ang kanilang produkto at patuloy na tangkilin ito ng mga consumers. Isa na nga rito ang Hobe Bihon na tatlong taon na nyang ini-endorso. Malaki ang naitulong ni Ms. Aiai sa pag-eendorso ng Hobe Bihon dahil dumami ang nakakilala ng produkto at nalaman ng mga mamimili na masarap pala ito kumpara sa ibang brand ng pansit noodles. Dahil nga rito ay ini-extend ng Hobe ang kanyang kontrata kay Ms. Aiai bilang endorser ng Hobe.


Noong nakaraang January 6, 2017 Sabado ay nakapanayam ng ilang bloggers si Ms. Aiai tungkol nga sa patuloy nyang pag-eendorso ng produkto ng Hobe. Bukod daw sa ito ang ginagamit nyang panghanda sa tuwing may okasyon sa kanilang tahanan, ang Hobe products daw ang ginagamit nyang noodles sa kanyang bagong bukas na restaurant-ang Ai Sarap Express na matatagpuan sa  Ignacia Place, #62 Sgt. Esguerra St., corner Mother Ignacia, Diliman, QC. (near ABS-CBN Compound). Pinatikim sa mga bloggers ni Ms. Aiai kung gaano kasarap ang mga produkto ng Hobe na available sa kanyang bagong restaurant. Bukod dito ay ibinahagi ni Ms. Aiai na ang anak nya raw na si Sancho Vito Delas Alas ang namamahala ng Ai Sarap Express Restaurant business na ito. Kinuha na rin namin ang pagkakataon na tanungin kung ano ang naka-line-up na proyekto ni Ms. Aiai ngayong taon at sinabi nyang magkakaroon sya ng isang teleserye sa GMA 7, ang “Sherlock Jr,” at makakasama nya ang isa sa mga sikat na loveteam ng GMA 7 na sina Ruru Madrid at Gabbi Garcia.
