I must say that this year's line ups were totally offered to all the moviegoers with a bang! Now, here's a quick teaser to excite us more for this gripping film!

Thousand Teas: A Classic TEAxperience!

Tea is the 2nd main beverage in the world next to water. It is even part of the history and culture for other countries. But here in the Philippines, teas have been getting less attention because we had been used to sodas or fruit juices. Not until pretty recently when 'milk teas' buzzed out! Milk Tea has been a major hit. There are a lot of variants and flavors was innovated. A lot of stores and brands that offers milk tea popped up too. But what makes Thousand Teas any different? Let's find out!

One of my most favorite DIVA had recently concluded her intimate concert with a BANG! Congratulations to Ms. Jonalyn Viray and to Creative Media Entertainment for a huge concert success in Music & Me! I personally anticipated a night of good music and gripping performance from Jonalyn and to tell you all the truth... I was overly satisfied.

Cinema One Originals 2012: Slumber Party movie review

Slumber Party is another official entry to the Cinema One Originals 2012 Currents category. I am excited when I learned about the movie because I felt that it was going to be a riot of laughter! I became compelled to watch the movie because my favorite local jazz singer Markki Stroem and my ultimate favorite dancer Sef Cadayona was part of the movie. So I took time last Nov. 30 to watch the premiere night of Slumber Party at Robinsons Galleria movieworld in line to the Cinema One Originals Film Festival.
A fresh, new and unbelievable ensemble of the Tri-beki: Archie Alemania, Markki Stroem and RK Bagatsing is ready to take you on a crazy whirlwind of fun! Claiming that this is a true blue Pinoy satire film, I was never wrong with what I expected. No ordinary sleepover as the tagline stated but, no one can ever fall asleep in this film. So here is a quick movie review for Slumber Party:

Cinema One Originals 2012: Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi movie review

Can you imagine this pretty lady with a sweet and gentle smile doing some action scenes? Holding up a shotgun or a knife? Punching or stabbing gangsters, goons and thugs? Think it over because she got it! One of the premiere actress in the country, Ms. Erich Gonzales showcased and flourished her tough, unyielding and striking side for her newest film Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi.

NCA 2012: My Favorite TV Station is...

Netizens' Choice Awards 2012 has a question to all the bloggers in the cyber community.. "What is your most favorite TV Station?". A question that I am bound to answer in this blog entry. 
To be totally honest, I am not watching TV regularly. In being a claimed NETIZEN I usually rather spend my time over the internet than to watch TV shows or I would instead go out and catch movies with friends. So this ultimate question on "WHAT IS MY FAVORITE TV STATION?" made a buzz out of my head.

If I am going to answer this in a jiffy, this is easy because if there is a channel that I can watch all day, I might give out an answer like MYX (the number 1 music channel in the Philippines) or HBO or Star Movies or Disney Channel. Those are my common picks. But as we all know, this famed question is in aim to know which of the 3 biggest networks in the country had captured the hearts of bloggers in the Netizen's community. The BIG THREE is ABS-CBN, GMA and TV5.

Spotlight Feature: Jonalyn Viray

Coming from a blogger who loves music and OPM by heart.. I would like to give a SPOTLIGHT FEATURE for Ms. Jonalyn Viray.
Yes, as we all know, she is the first ever Pinoy Pop Superstar and now she's one of the power belters of GMA7's Party Pilipinas, remarkably noted in the "VOX" segment. She has been around the local music industry since 2005 and she continuously aims to go farther and reach higher. I am personally watching Party Pilipinas regularly on TV and even live in the studio; to tell you honestly, this diva had wowed me every single time she performs live in the said TV show. She is indeed a total performer. This feature is not just because I am personally impressed by her and her singing (which is true) but more to it, Jonalyn Viray deserves to bloom.

The premiere night was jam-packed and the moviegoers went on long queues on the first showing day! Needless to say, 15 of the biggest stars had everyone falling 24/7 In Love over and over.

Sip the awesomest drinks on Earth!

Since the start of the milktea craze here in Ph, everyone's been hooked. It is evident by how fast and viral it spreads out all around the Metro! Fast-shooting names and brands of milktea emerged! I'm personally amazed by the milktea trend! I am more of a soda or fruit juice lover. I am not a hardcore fan of milktea, but I am a drinker. I think a lot of us are drinkers. So here, I will introduce to all of you, one of the rising tea shop I recently discovered, and surprisingly loved.
Go and SIP the 'awesomest' drinks on Earth! SIP is now taking on the milktea industry and ready to fight head-to-head with other big names in the field. Why so? Simply because they KNOW their teas! Their tea brand is more particular on how they prepare the tea they serve. They are hand-on in picking the best ingredients, flavoring and mixes. They particularly mastered the process on how to give out the best tea experience. Meticulous as it may seem, but that's how you will fall in love with their teas!

Pokwang: #Idol ko si..

Pokwang joined an intimate blogger's conference for her up-coming movie from Star Magic and Star Cinema, 24/7 In Love. In a very quick encounter, I figured that she is really a great person. She is naturally funny and down-to-earth! She even followed me that day on twitter and for that I thank her. Mamang Pokie is truly an amazing actress. Now, let's see who's her idol..

When I handed over the paper to write down her #Idol.. she said "Ang hirap naman nito, baka madaming magalit..", eventually she said.."oh sige, ganito na lang.."
#IDOL ko si.. NANAY KO. -Pokwang
She even added: "Idol ko naman talaga ang nanay ko, biruin mo, binuhay nya kami sa dami namin."

I salute you Ms.Pokie! Thank you for taking time to answer and take a quick photo! I love you mamang!

Please support Ms.Pokwang on her newest movie 24/7 In Love where she pairs up with heartthrob Sam Milby in one of the episodes! 24/7 In Love will hit theaters this November 21!
