Jobert Austria in a vehicular accident.

Anytime I read on the news that a friend is hurt in an accident brings me to a realization. A realization that we should never take our borrowed time here for granted. We should always take good care of ourselves.

I woke up this morning to news that ABS-CBN comedian Jobert Austria figured in a vehicular accident. Photos and videos from the report show that he was driving his car and slammed onto a barrier somewhere in Araneta Avenue in Quezon City, Philippines. Kuya Jobert, as he is fondly called by fans, garnered attention from being a Youtube sensation to becoming a television personality. For a time he was part of our company's FM radio station in Manila, iFM 93.9, for about six months before the giant network beckoned. He was a big hit on the airwaves during his brief stint on the program "Itanong mo kay Kuya Jobert". Honestly, I wish he didn't let go of radio and maintained his show alongside his TV appearances.

Before this unfortunate vehicular accident, Kuya Jobert was previously in the news in that infamous "Hotel Sogo suicide attempt" that happened a year ago. Hoping that he could recover from all this misfortunes and that he would rise up to the challenges and come out better. His fans need him and his brand of comedy as he is able to bring laughter and cheers to people.

I have no recent news on his recovery yet but I know he is strong and will eventually come out of this a better person.
