Charice is ‘out’ and ‘free’



It’s not an unusual case, nor is it the most shocking one, when you consider that former child singer Charice Pempengco has finally ‘come out’. Aiza Seguerra, has done it, and of course, Rustom Padilla, now known popularly as BB Gandanghari.

In an intimate interview with her godfather, Bum Tenorio Jr., Charice has been quoted to say, ‘I have come to accept the real me. I have come to love the real me. I now celebrate the real me.’ Charice even goes as far as to resolutely say that she doesn’t mind getting a sizeable amount of bashers.

Well, good for her. She seems to be at peace now with herself and true to form, she has nothing to worry about. Charice’s finances are fine, the proof being on her brand new BMW which was paid in full. She has named the luxury vehicle, ‘Captain’. For her fans and detractors, Charice can only say, ‘The only thing that changed in me is my look, my perspective. My voice remains the same."

Right on, Charice.

Jessica Soho: “Rape is not a joke.”



The award winning broadcaster has finally broken her silence about the ‘fat’ joke, comedian Vice Ganda has made against her. More than a week ago in a concert, the ABS-CBN comedian bashed Soho for her weight, even going as far as suggesting a scene for a bold (rated) movie she should star in where she would be ‘gang-raped’.

GMA executives have fired back and are now planning to take legal proceedings against the ABS-CBN talent. Arnold ‘ Igan’ Clavio has also taken Soho’s side and asked why Vice Ganda needs to victimize people with serious jobs just to make people laugh. Soho has also made a public statement, citing that “Rape is not joke.”

The public has taken sides as well, calling Vice Ganda’s joke as ‘vulgar’, ‘tasteless’ and ‘overboard’ while others say that it was all in the spirit of comedy.


Fast and Furious 6: A Winning Formula



Who would have thought that a movie about fast muscle cars, even more muscled men and beautiful ladies would have such a strong appeal? This appears to be the case for Fast and the Furious 6, which is now obviously on its 6th installment.

Apart from its brilliant explosions and well choreographed stunts, this movie is expected to be a hit – on Philippine shores, anyway - far beyond its predecessors simply because its red carpet premiere was held here in Manila. Starstruck fans saw Michelle Rodriguez, Luke Evans, Gina Carano and of course, the main man himself, Vin Diesel in the flesh. Filipinos were most especially pleased with Diesel’s apparent humility and down to earth attitude – at most times seen wearing a sando just like any local or enjoying a jeepney ride. He was even featured to drive a sidecar from a pineapple vendor!

6 Tips to help Expand your online business

Starting a business online means that you probably have, and want, a decent amount of flexibility. People are able to look at your products and explore your services at their leisure, and you can use these tips to make it even better.

Include a Review Section

Buying products online can be a little bit scary because consumers do not always know exactly what they are getting. In order to alleviate their fears, it would be wise to set up a comments and reviews section on your website. Be sure to monitor it though. If you get a number of spam messages or something of that nature, you should look into removing them. Taking away negative reviews is really not right though.

Safety and Security

No one is going to want to buy from your site unless the consumers know that their information is protected when they enter into. Credit card fraud and identity fraud are both huge problems these days, and people do not want to be exposed to these types of issues. Your website should absolutely let people know that their information is safe and how it is protected from hackings and theft.

Facebook Page

Facebook pages help to give customers a personal connection with the business, and when you do not have such a page, you risk falling behind in the world of business competition. Yes, you should have a regular website as well. However, it should include a link to your Facebook page. On this page, you can reply directly to customer comments, complaints or questions. You can also post plenty of pictures with great ease. Generally, businesses will decide to have a couple of people who are specifically in-charge of monitoring and updating the Facebook page.

Customer Service 24/7

Imagine that someone is trying to purchase a product from your page, and he or she is not able to figure out how to do it or has a question about your product. If this individual is not able to receive immediate customer service, then he or she might choose to buy it from somewhere else. One of the ways to stop this problem from occurring is by having 24/7 customer service. Even if you are unable to have someone available all of the time, you should at least put together a list of frequently asked questions.

A Virtual Office

The Servcorp Virtual Office is a great way to give your business a boost by providing you with tools such as a dedicated receptionist, a CBD address, dedicated business phone number, access to meeting and board rooms when you need, all without the cost of renting a full time office.

International Presence

Once you have established yourself as a local and national entity, it's time to start looking to other countries. If you have the ability to ship to other places in the world, then you can really become a master in the field. Individuals will know your reputation and seek out your products immediately.

All of these tips are absolutely going to help you when you want to expand your online business. Remember, business, at its heart, is a competition, and you need to make sure you are in the front.

Kaleidoscope World Forever More



Father’s Day is just a few weeks off but Elmo Magalona seems to have found a perfect and fitting way to pay tribute to his father, the late Master Rapper, Francis M. Technology has played a huge role in relaunching the MTV for Kaleidoscope World. Now introduced as Kaleidoscope World Forever More, the new video features Elmo - singing along with his Dad, interacting, rapping and performing with him and his band. To say the video is touching is a bit of an understatement.

The behind the scenes crew deserve equal, if not more, credit. Footage from the original MTV was painstakingly combined with new scenes so viewers feel some level of authenticity. If someone didn’t know Francis M. died four years ago (I don’t know how that’s possible!) should see this video, there would be no doubt in your mind that these were just two performers collaborating.

Watch the video. Even if you are not a fan of Francis Magalona and his music, there’s something poignant about a son who wants to be with deceased father, one last time.

Transporter: The Series



Jason Statham is one of the few successful British actors to have made it big not only in Hollywood but in the worldwide market as well. Perhaps his most famous role is that of Frank Martin, the Transporter. (do not call him driver!) Action fanatics will recall his eternally menacing scowl and his calculating demeanor. And it may have been because of this that when the movie trilogy was translated into a TV show, millions were glued to the tube to see more action-packed, adrenalin pumped fight and chase scenes.


Justin Bieber booed at Billboard Music Awards


The boos overpowered the screaming fans when Justin Bieber came to the stage to accept the first ever Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet at the Billboard Music Awards last Monday, May 20. The singer struggled with the microphone, unsure whether to speak up or just take everything in. The pop sensation eventually spoke up and thanked his fans and family, ultimately reminding everyone that “it should be about the music, about the craft” and how he should be taken “seriously as an artist”.

Music critics afterwards felt bad for Bieber’s treatment while some detractors have expressed that it was a heckling well deserved. A few also questioned why he felt the need to reassure the audience that he was not a ‘gimmick’. The Milestone Award was voted on by fans and taking in the fact that all his albums have been doing well, it should not come as a surprise that Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars have both lost the award to him.

Celebrating Mother's Day with Cookie Butter Donuts from Go Nuts Donuts

I was planning to buy Red Ribbon's cake on Mother's day but unfortunately their cakes are sold-out. So I thought of bringing donuts to my mother instead.

Go Nuts Donuts, Cookie Butter Donuts

I also remember Go Nuts Donuts just launched their newest flavor here in Davao which is the Cookie Butter Donut. So I'm pretty sure my mother would love to try it also. Besides, she loves Go Nuts Donuts because their donuts are affordable, not too sweet and of course proudly Filipino made. 

Mother's Day, Cookie Butter Donuts

And when she had her first bite - she really loved it! I was right! Hehe. :) 

I didn't eat the donut on that day yet because I was already full from our food trip at the mall. But on the next day, I wanted to confirm if it tastes good and it really is. :) You should try it. :)

Candice Glover is American Idol Season 12 winner!



Philippine fans to the long time reality show were in for a spectacular treat as American Idol Season 12 wrapped up today, May 17. In a two hour long finale, past contenders from the current season and the seasons before performed once again on the Idol stage.

All 11 eliminated contestants opened the show with a rousing rendition of ‘Glad You Came’. The Idol judges also made the stage hot with their own performances where in one, Mariah Carey sang a medley of her hits and even impishly called out to Nicki Minaj to not ‘be shy, and join in.’

It was also good to see Janelle Arthur rocking out with The Band Perry. She let loose with a couple of vigorous kicks and enthusiastic head bangs. Angie Miller was also there with Adam Lambert in a ‘Titanium’ duet then later with her personal idol, Miss Jessie J. It was also right after that number that an invitation was extended to Angie to come to London and perform. She said yes, of course! Amber Holcomb later sang with Emeli Sande.

UPCOMING MOVIE: The Heat

Tough and beautiful, this would probably be the first words that come to anyone’s minds when they see the trailer of the new and upcoming comedy by the unlikely duo Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.

‘The Heat’ is about a by-the-book, rigid FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) who is forced to partner up with a detective that’s bound to push the limits, Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) to take down a Russian drug lord.


J-LAW photobombs SJP



The 2013 MET Gala was overflowing with eye popping, unique and edgy, over-the-top gowns so it was not a strange sight to see Sarah Jessica Parker of the ever popular Sex and the City franchise to walk down the carpet in a spiky black hat that gave a distinct rock and roll vibe. What was most endearing however was what happened while she was giving an interview.

Hunger Games, J. Law suddenly steps out of nowhere, apparently fascinated with the hat and photobombs SJP, her left hand barely touching the ends of the prickly creation. With an adorable and mischievious smile, J. Law quickly steps into the frame, almost hiding behind SJP. Lena Dunham and Marion Cotillard, look on, much amused.

While there were other elegant and punk inspired arrivals, this brief but charming incident was hands down the most memorable of the night. Soon afterwards, both award winning actresses shared a photo, with neither one photobombing the other.

Jennifer Aniston ‘delays’ marriage so Brad Pitt can marry first?



Jennifer Aniston has apparently delayed her marriage to Justin Theroux in an effort not to ‘overlap’ days with the planned nuptials of her ex, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Aniston and Theroux were reported to have planned a summer wedding but after the news release that Brangelina is planning to do the same, Jen has pushed her big day back in an effort to not share the limelight.

‘She does not want her day associated with them.’ an Us weekly insider has been reported to share.

Jen is also busy with projects lately. She has just recently finished a new movie, ‘The Ultimate Leonard Project’ and has her hands full redecorating the Bel Air mansion she and her beau shares. Taking her plans by the rein one at a time could really be just the wisest thing to do.

Aniston was married to Pitt from 2000 to 2005; the relationship with Jolie followed soon after the split.

The Great Gatsby



The Great Gatsby is a Hollywood film that’s set to the 1920’s. It is based on one of the greatest works by F. Scott Fitzgerald and is focused on the extravagant lifestyle and societal developments in the ‘Roaring 20’s.’

This film is directed by Baz Luhrmann, the same director who took the helm and brought us Moulin Rouge. He is joined on this project by cinematographer Simon Duggan who together, used 3d technology for this movie. This partnership only means more colorful sets, more intricate costumes, more lavish settings and more luxurious set designs.

The Great Gatsby will open in US theaters on May 10 and is set to be launched in Cannes, France on May 15. Critic’s reviews have been split, where some have called it ‘a stylish, colorful material piled on in excess and tinged with overheated melodrama’ while others laud it for ‘appropriate use of modern technologies and comparatively accurate adaptation.

Da Vinci's Demons



Much of the modern conveniences we have today are all thanks to a man who conceptualized them centuries ago. We all have heard of Leonardo da Vinci, the painter behind Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile and the origin of the Vitruvian man drawing but how much do we really know about his life and times?

This is the working idea for Fox network’s newest TV series, the much anticipated Da Vinci’s Demons. It is described as a work of ‘historical fantasy’ as the show explores the world as seen through the eyes of the great artist. The story starts to unfold during Da Vinci’s active and ‘inventing’ years, at age 25. It gives us a glimpse of his genius and the inner darkness he struggled with.

It also shows us his impassioned, heretic attempts to expose the lies of the Church and overthrow a severely elitist society.

Catch new episodes of Da Vinci’s Demons every every Sunday at 10:00 pm on Fox Movies Premium.

American Idol: and then there were three…



The American Idol Top 3 results are in and Amber Holcomb, as predicted by majority of the AI fans, was the unfortunate one to get the lowest number of votes. She was sent home despite ‘stellar’ performances the past few weeks.

After the announcement of her elimination, Amber sang Whitney Houston’s ‘I believe in you and me.’ The rendition was heart wrenching and the judges and audience tried to suppress their tears. She also struggled with the song, visibly upset and trying hard not to cry. Unfortunately, her Father was ushered to the stage, making her emotionally vulnerable.

Now that the finale is drawing near and the Top 3 contestants remain, the anticipation for the American Idol Season 12 winner is heightened. Who will it be? Will it be Edgy Angie? Country Crooner Kree or Crystal Clear Balladeer Candice? Fans of the show will have to keep a vigilant eye to find out.
