Heroes Vs Villains: Trick or Treating with the Vivo V7+

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 0 Comments

Trick or treating is something that was introduced locally a few years ago but something that has become almost an instant hit to children and adults alike. Shooting a good and clear Halloween photo with the usual low-lit or dim setting of a Halloween ambiance may be a challenge with an ordinary phone camera.

But with the Vivo V7+, dimly-lit environment is never a challenge when taking a clear selfie shot. Known for rocking one of the first 24MP selfie-centric smartphones to hit the market, the V7+ Vivo’s perfect response to the selfie phenomenon. Its 24MP clearer selfie, front facing camera, with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo while one is out and about whether for tricks or treats. A fan of scary movies or Armageddon-type video games? Enjoy them with the V7+’s revolutionary 5.99 all-screen Display boasting of an 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature is also a hit even for the not-so-pretty Halloween masks as it brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in Halloween’s overcast set-up. The V7+’s camera also has a built-in Bokeh feature which gives photos a beautiful effect of a soft out-of-focus background, a famous aesthetic in selfies in the recent years.

I Found 7 Reasons To Watch 'I Found My Heart In Santa Fe'

Thursday, September 7, 2017 2 Comments

I was invited to cover the blogcon of the upcoming romantic-comedy movie "I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" which was produced by Bluart Productions. Before coming to the blogcon, I had very small amount of knowledge about the film --- that it stars real-life couple Will Devaughn & Roxanne Barcelo.

Buti na lang during blogcon they played the trailer which looks so cutesy, charming & romantic. I even stopped talking to my co-bloggers while watching the trailer & from that moment, I've already found 7 reasons to watch this movie. So, let's start counting.


Like what I've said, the movie stars the real-life couple Roxanne Barcelo & Will Devaughn ---- they had been in a relationship for four years now.

Haba naman ng hair ni Teh Roxanne, four years is four years, big achievement yun, pak!

I was so curious if yung chemistry ba nila in real life ay madadala ba nila sa big screen as a loveteam. First time kasi nila magsama sa isang movie, so talagang ma-tetest sa movie na ito ang kanilang chemistry. Ganern!

Based on the trailer meron silang something different na ma-i-o-offer especially yung characters nila na very opposite sa isa't-isa. Very Byx ang peg ng character ni Roxanne, she plays the island girl Jennifer who is smart, fierce, hardworking & pretty with unique personality & speaks gay linggo - akong-ako talaga ito mga beshie!!! Kaya lang brokenhearted itong si Jennifer & this heartache made her tougher & wiser.

Si Papa Will naman will play the German-Filipino named Viktor. Siya yung tipong AFAM of our dreams --- rich, adventurous, athletic, music lover and, of course, handsome but remains a simple man. Pero si ideal AFAM natin is not perfect cos he's searching for the missing pieces of his life.

Their nakakakilig & exciting journey to love will start when Viktor decided to fly to Santa Fe to look for his biological mother.


Another thing na gusto ko sa trailer ay pinakita dito na winner ang gandang morena -- promote our own skin colour.

The two will bump into each other in a rather odd situation but due  to Viktor's insistence and persistence, he will stop at nothing to win the heart of Jennifer. He was captivated by Jennifer's morena beauty & charm. PAK!!!!

Sabi nga sa kantang "Morena" ni Roxanne Barcelo, "Iba magmahal ang isang morena."


Sa mga ka-beshie natin na in love sa AFAM, eto talaga yung perfect movie para sa atin. When I saw Viktor, kinilig ako dahil siya talaga yung ideal AFAM of our dreams ang peg niya.

Trailer pa lang, nakikita ko na ang sarili ko kay Jennifer na love na love ng isang AFAM who will do everything to win her heart. Tapos tayong mga girlash pa-hard-to-get ang oeg natin. I'm sure nakakarelate kayo mga ka-beshie. Ito na talaga yun, woooooh!!!


The movie "I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" is directed by Bona Fajardo. He was one of the people who started independent-digital filmmaking (indie film) in 2000. Siya lang naman ang direktor ng 1st indie film ng Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera Judy Ann Santos --- "Miss Pinoy" an advocacy film on Overseas Filipino Workers.

He also directed the movie "Iliw" about Vigan, Ilocos Sur topbilled by Kaye Abad.

Tarush itong si direk because he's part of the production & creative team of Robin Padilla's indie film "Astigmatism" which won a Silver Award (Digital) at Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) -- a first for the Philippines.

After winning awards, Direk Bona & his group decided to venture into film technology development & was later assigned to film tourism.


Natuwa ako sa trailer kasi may mga beki lingo o gay lingo & I'm excited to hear more beki words sa movie since the character of Jennifer (Roxanne) is a babaeng bakla as in perfect nya ang Gay Lingo subject!

Tapos may mga quotable quote pa na talaga namang tagos sa puso.

"Love doesn't ask because it's ready to trust, love doesn't ask because it's ready to understand"

Pak! Pak! Winner!!!!


I'm sure narinig ko na somewhere ang song na "Morning, Noon & Nighttime" na theme song ng movie. It was originally performed by Jane Olivor but for this movie ang si Roxanne naman ang nag-cover. When it was played sa trailer, tumaas yung kilig meter ko, it really helps sa kiligness ng mga scenes and I'm so excited to hear this song sa movie. Roxanne's version of the song really fits sa story at location ng movie.


One of the main factors that move the love story of Jennifer & Viktor is the pristine & raw beauty of Santa Fe --- it really makes the movie more interesting & serves as the perfect romantic backdrop.

Santa Fe is a municipality part of Bantayan Island in Cebu which has a beautiful non-crowded beach that boasts of white sand that sparkles in the sunlight.

It was last year when Director Bona Fajardo discovered Santa Fe & got an idea to shoot a movie. It's really the perfect setting for the beautiful & endearing love story of Jennifer & Viktor.

I hope, with this movie, the tourism industry of the paradise of Santa Fe will boost.

"I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" is about a girl searching for love & a boy searching for his roots in a beautiful island full of wonders. It is the 1st brand new film to be screened at Cine Lokal in select SM Cinemas beginning September 15.

Jed Madela's US Tour Was A Success

Tuesday, September 5, 2017 0 Comments

The World Champion Jed Madela just recently finished the 2nd & final leg of his 2017 US tour (produced by Stargaze Productions’ Carnie Banares) which every show is SOLD OUT. Wow, congratulations, Jed!

Prior to the show, fans were so excited to see his performance with Morissette Amon (Imagine, two of the best young Filipino singers). However things didn't work out the way they wanted as the first show—held at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California last August 17—had a hitch. Due to unforseen circumstances, Morissette didn’t make it to California in time for the show. Jed admits that he was worried her absence would cause a problem for him.

“With regards to Morissette, her working visa didn't come through in time. Honestly, I got worried when I found out what happened to her. I thought the venue would want to cancel the show because ang inaasahan nila, dalawa kami ni Morissette na nandun. I got even more worried when my team told me that some people already asked for ticket refunds,” he confessed.

The odds are still in Jed's favour because the venue decided not to cancel the show (that made him happier & more energetic) and the show was still sold out even if some refunds were made. There were even some fans who turned away at the door because there were no more available tickets.

That knowledge gave him the encouragement he needed. Despite Morissette’s absence, Jed went onstage determined to make sure those who bought tickets—and didn’t ask for refunds—would get their money’s worth. Luckily, his efforts paid off.

“Like any other professional, I went on with the show. I wanted to make sure that the audience wouldn’t go home feeling shortchanged, and they didn’t. They went home happy naman,” Jed says. “I got rave reviews, kaya the producer is already planning another US tour for me next year. Some of Morissette’s fans refunded their tickets kasi nga wala siya, but some stayed to watch me. I met with them afterwards and they told me I gained new fans, so I also went home happy.”

The "How Can I Fall" singer was so thrilled that he ended his tour on a high note. With the success of his latest US tour, Jed hopes it will pave the way for him to do more things abroad.

“I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to travel and do more shows abroad. I’m happy my management team works hard to find producers who’ll get me for their shows. I do get offers for shows in the Philippines, and sold out din naman sila, but maganda rin na meron akong natatanggap sa ibang bansa. Who knows, maybe all this overseas touring will lead to bigger opportunities there. Let’s see.”

Again, congratulations, Jed!

It's Official: Yuan Is Billie's Meant To Be

Friday, June 23, 2017 0 Comments

After 20 weeks or 118 episodes of full of kilig adventure ni Billie (Barbie Forteza) sa paghahanap niya ng Ka-Meant To Be, sa wakas nakapili na siya sa isa sa apat na JEYA Boys na sina Andoy (Jak Roberto), Ethan (Ivan Dorschner), Jai (Addy Raj) & Yuan (Ken Chan).

Nagsimula ang huling linggo ng top rating kilig serye ng Kapuso network sa pag-amin ni Billie sa kanyang Mamay (Manilyn Reynes) na may lalake na siyang iniibig.

Last June 21 (Wednesday) episode, napanood nating lahat ang pagreject ni Billie kay Jai ng #TeamKAPE ang dating babaerong miyembro ng JEYA na nagbago nang dahil sa kanya. Kahit na masakit na ma-heartbreak, thankful pa rin si Jai sa inspiration na binigay ni Billie sa kanya that made him a better person.

Last night naman, inamin ni Billie kay Andoy ng #TeamPANDESAL na hanggang friendship lang ang kaya niyang ibigay para rito & di niya kayang tumbasan ang pagmamahal nito. That scene made me cry cause Andoy is a good son, hardworking guy and a soldier of love tapos may pa-pandesal pa pero failed sa love. Ano ba Billie?! Pero ganun talaga e, love is blind and one of a kind. At least kung noong umpisa ng kilig-serye ay torpe at mahiyain si Andoy ngayon pinakita niya na gaya ng pangalan niyang Andres siya ay matapang at marunong lumaban kahit na masaktan pa.

From 4 boys, 2 na lang naglalaban sa puso ni Billie. At ngayong gabi sa pinag-uusapang #MTBMeAndYouTheKiligFinale episode, Billie has finally made her decision. She finally revealed her "Meant To Be."

Kahit na sa umpisa, crush at naging malapit kay Billie ang dream guy ng mga kababaihan na si Ethan ng #TeamGATAS ay di niya ito pinili. Di pala si Ethan ang nagpatibok ng kanyang puso kundi si Yuan ng #TeamASUKAL. At dahil diyan kailangan ng bonggang rollback sa presyo ng asukal. Charoooot!

Yes, you read it right, Yuan is Billie's #MeantToBe. And grabeeeh itong lines nila na napakasimple pero super nakakakilig

YUAN: Billie mahal kita, kaya sabihin mo sa'kin bakit ako ang pinili mo

BILLIE: Kasi mahal kita.

Waaaaaah!!!! Kilig plus iyak. Grabeeeeeeh!!!

Mamimiss ko talaga ang show na ito na gabi-gabi na nagpakilig & nagpasaya sa akin. Sa aking social media accounts, tinatawag ko ang show na ito na my #HappyPill dahil puno siya ng good vibes kaya sinusubaybayan ko sa GMA 7 sa TV at sa iFlix streaming app.

Avisala Kapuso network for giving us a #HappyPill. 20 weeks na puno ng kilig at good vibes. Hanggang sa uulitin. SEASON 2 NA, PLEASE!!!

Ed Sheeran is Coming Back to Manila

Thursday, June 8, 2017 0 Comments

AEG Presents and Ovation Productions are excited to announce that celebrated singer songwriter Ed Sheeran is bringing his highly anticipated World Tour to Manila on 7 November 2017 at the MOA Concert Grounds. Tickets for the show priced at P13040, 11450, 8290, 4060, 3010, 1950 will be sold starting 10 June 2017 at

The touring news comes straight off the back of a phenomenal few weeks for 26-year-old Ed Sheeran. Kicking-off music in 2017 and delivering the biggest musical comeback in recent years, Ed’s dual singles“Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” have taken the globe by storm, hitting the #1 and #2 spots across the charts worldwide while seeing the Suffolk native break a magnitude of records along the way. On course to cement his third week at #1 & #2 respectively in the UK’s Official Singles Chart tomorrow [Ed made OCC history as the first-ever artist to land the two spots respectively with two brand new tracks], Ed recently conquered more milestones in the USA after landing his first-ever #1 as a performer on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Shape Of You" - with "Castle On The Hill" sitting closely behind at #6 on the chart, Ed also became the first artist to debut in Billboard's 'Top 10' with two songs simultaneously. Not to mention the huge assortment of Spotify records broken by the troubadour this month, making history with their biggest-ever ‘one week’ and ‘one day’ streams for a track, globally with“Shape Of You” (the records were previously held by Drake’s “One Dance” and Adele’s “Hello”, respectively). Moreover, Ed topped the streaming service’s biggest-ever opening 24 hour streams with both singles, surpassing previous title holders, One Direction. Reaching 132 combined #1 iTunes positions around the world and accomplishing Apple Music’s biggest-ever ‘day’ and ‘one week’ streams, the two singles have accumulated over 370 MILLION worldwide streams to date. Launched on Monday, Ed’s official video for “Castle On The Hill”, which was shot in his native Framlingham, Suffolk, has already reached over 10 million hits!

In addition to Ed’s epic rise with his recorded music, the Suffolk-born artist has also broken records in the live sphere over recent years. In July 2015 Ed took to the stage of Wembley Stadium, solo, becoming the first-ever artist to headline the prestigious venue without a band - with just his trademark loop pedal and guitar – seeing him play to 240,000 people over three consecutive sold-out nights! Securing a very special collaboration with Sir Elton John on the opening night, Ed followed with the release of his live DVD ‘Jumpers for Goalposts’ at the end of 2015, documenting the lead-up and live performances from the Wembley weekend. Moreover, not only has Ed caught the headlines with his phenomenal solo concerts, he's also been involved in an array of spellbinding collaborative performances over his career to date, further proving his colossal status in the musical world - in 2012, Ed performed at the London Olympics' closing ceremony alongside members of Pink Floyd and Genesis for a very special version of "Wish You Were Here" and in 2015, Ed shared the stage with Beyonce and Gary Clark Jr. at that year's Grammy tribute for Stevie Wonder.

Ed Sheeran’s genre-defying third studio album ÷ (divide) was released on 3rd March through Asylum/Atlantic Records (available now).
