Striking work-life balance, Kapuso actor Benjamin Alves took a well-deserved vacation in Guam to spend quality time with his family before working on his latest project with his home network, GMA.

His excitement to be home was evident on his Instagram account as he shared photos and videos of him and his relatives. In one particular video, the Kapuso star can be seen playing basketball in an arcade with his nephew, Noah. “Hoopin with Noah. Couldn’t help but join in,” he happily shared.

During his most recent visit, Benjamin also had the opportunity to visit some of the local radio stations and press offices through GMA Pinoy TV, GMA’s flagship international channel.

His media tour included an interview with Pacific Daily News, as well as guestings on “Cruising with KUAM”, “Kumusta Kabayan”, and KTKB Megamixx 101.9 FM Guam, where he was interviewed by his brother DJ Arnold Sapida.

Benjamin also paid a courtesy call to Consul General Marciano R. De Borja at the Philippine Consulate in Tamuning. He also visited the headquarters of GTA Teleguam, one of GMA’s carriers in the territory.

“It’s so nice to see our #TeamAbroad here in Guam grow since introducing GMA Pinoy TV here. It feels like so much of me being a Kapuso has come from me being raised in Guam,” he revealed.

According to him, knowing that his “fellow islanders” enjoy Kapuso programs especially those he was part of is a validation that GMA Pinoy TV continues to reach more and more Filipinos in Guam.

Starting this June, Filipinos in Guam and other parts of the world, will see more of him on GMA’s newest weekly sexy comedy program A1 Ko Sa ’Yo, which also stars Jaclyn Jose, Gardo Versoza, and Solenn Heussaff.

Benjamin, who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Guam with a degree in English Literature, is also the lead advocate of the GMA Network Excellence Award, the Kapuso Network’s CSR program that recognizes outstanding graduating students of Mass Communication or Electronic Communications Engineering.
