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.

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!

Suddenly It's Magic Movie Review

As you may have noticed, I have been dedicated in promoting this latest Star Cinema offering Suddenly It's Magic.

It gave me more than what I actually expected. It has been a while since I did my last movie review, but here is a treat for all of you..
