Eraserheads concert - the Final Set - mission for a blog coverage




photos from Day Cabuhat's album

the mission
I just got a big call from MTV Philippines this late evening and they just informed me about my media pass for the big event and concert. I jumped for joy and did that pumping Jim Carrey impression and shouted a big yes! and my friends who were with me during our dinner are happy and very supportive on my jump for joy and maybe bring on the tears after seeing myself onfront of the stage. Big thanks to MTV Philippines and Smart for the goodies, I just got a big problem weeks ago for not acquiring my own ticket and money just became a big conflict in buying my own ticket, but then after those praying moments.... the gate opened and listened to my big prayers. and boom! I'm a media man for the concert.

They gave an update and instructed me that media people should only take photos in the first 3 songs of Eraserheads and after the 3 songs we can now proceed to any audience section of our choice. And I just got an idea that I might position myself in the VIP area and hopefully take more photos in my location and get the advantage of the media pass, but I'm not sure if they will honor the media pass badge in the VIP, but hmm I think they will.

for the blog coverage
I will be posting updates in my plurk, here in my blog and in multiply. I'm still fixing my phplurk account and it seems to be so wonky today. But I might power up my Smart enabled Sony Ericsson W670i in taking photos and short videos and post it in my multiply blog. I will be doing a lot of video blogs and journal ( just like Rorschach in Watchmen) and capture everything that I can see in the concert. Also I will be recording the whole concert using my Creative Zen, but if ever I get a great timing I might use my Sony Ericsson W670i. My Olympus SP 500 UZ will be my partner for this concert event, this camera brought lots of picture of the Eheads concert 2008 in newspaper, online websites, blogs, and magazine. I'm hoping that I can do it again and take better photos for everyone.

After party event
I have tickets to the after party, but I just don't know what will be the highlight of it. Maybe a big celebration with fans, friends and the Eraserheads in one venue. If ever I get a chance, I might do an interview with everyone in it. I call this coverage my super blog coverage of the Eraserheads concert - The Final Set. I'm excited and I know you are excited too.

So better follow me and watch my updates at

Eraserheads concert - the Final Set - the venue and update


The venue

photo source http://www.eheadscountdown.com/

Tomorrow will be the big day as the ultraelectromagneticpop band of the Philippines will rise once more after the 2008 Reunion concert, and yes they are back and the photo showing here is the venue at SM Mall of Asia grounds.

As I look on the photo, it seems that the venue is so small and not that big like in the Fort open grounds. But it maybe an eye image trick because the photo is in bird's eye view. Also I just got lucky that I got a free 2 GOLD tickets of the concert and 2 after party ticket, and also I will be getting my media pass tomorrow for a biggest blog coverage. I will be posting a coverage via mobile, will be posted here in my blog and in my multiply network.

I just got my energy back in posting updates, I almost felt sad already because my pay check is not yet cleared and I was about to use it in buying my vip ticket. but glad that there's a good grace coming for me.

also, this afternoon, I read an update via plurk that the band is there today in the venue doing a lot of sound check, they even played Superproxy song ( i think) in tribute to their friend Francis Magalona




I might drop by there tonight to check it out and post an update.I just want to do a little tradition that I did from last years' reunion concert.

Asia's Songbird Live at Eastwood Mall Open Park on March 13, 2009

Romance continues to fill the air at Eastwood City. The season of love carries on until March, with a much anticipated concert comeback of Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez at the Eastwood Mall Open Park on March 13, 2009.



The free concert is part of Regine’s mall tours for her latest album, Low-Key which got a platinum award last February. The one night performance is Eastwood Mall’s way of showing its continuous effort of promoting world-class OPM artists this 2009.

“If last year we had Daughtry and Mandy Moore, this year, the people can expect lots of our local artists performing at Eastwood,” said Kevin L. Tan, head of Megaworld Corporation’s commercial division. “For the past couple of months, we have worked hard to improve our facilities and improve our development to international standards, fit for our world-class local artists to perform at,” Tan added.

The audience will truly appreciate Regine’s enchanting voice amidst the intimate and scenic backdrop of the new Eastwood Mall Open Park. The concert stage will be located right at the heart of the park’s lush greenery and right beside water landscapes as ambient lights illuminate the park. Regine’s crystal clear voice plus this romantic setting only means one thing: love is still in the Eastwood City air.

Catch this rare performance at the Eastwood Mall Open Park, Eastwood City, Libis. Concert starts at 7pm. For ticket reservations, contact 687-6770 to 74 and look for Joan, call the Eastwood Mall concierge at 709-1893, or text 0918-8-EWCITY. Or buy Regine’s “Low Key” album from the Eastwood Mall concierge to get VIP seats.

Watchmen movie is hallelujah - a mobile movie review


Watchmen is hallelujah. .mobile blog post review. . .

Just got out of the premiere.im still having a hang over. The movie is long at around 2 and half hour. Im expecting a big change in the ending but glad they sticked to the comic book. Expect alot of nudity back n sideview. Dr manhattan front is unedited. Glad the censors didnt mind the frontal nudity.

The movie is not a movie.its a comic book with strong hidden messages. Not sure if every one can get the main idea of the story.

The most shocking scene in comics didnt failed to be cinematized, it shocked me big time and i enjoyed it.

The movie will make a fan glued to its seat and expect alot of the next dramatic scene. For the non comics reader good luck in watching. Ahehe. The cut scene is not that bad but i know the dvd will be more kick ass, more reviews of watchmen movie will be posted as i arrived home.

Fudge Magazine is giving free premiere tickets to Watchmen movie

this is your big chance! read the updates below.

Interview with the girls of Playboy Philippines March 2009

http://images.popazrael.multiply.com/image/0/photos/760/500x500/20/P3030039.jpg?et=kP53gZBfzrf%2BhEmExW%2CYow&nmid=215192151

I just got in time for an interview at Sulo Hotel with Playboy Philippines magazine issue of March 2009 cover girl Sara Polverini and Playmate Jessie Medina. I arrived late and caught them on the table signing the last magazine and preparing their stuff and leave the event. It was great to know that Playboy Philippines are still game and let me do an interview, take some photo and video with the Playboy Philippines girls for March 2009.

I just found out that Sara Polverini is a former child actress, I know many of you heard of "Ang TV", now into modeling on these days, but she's still willing to accept an acting role if ever there's an offer, while Jessie Medina is a model and active in print ads for car magazines and also car shows.

check out my video interview below.


I learned also that Playboy Philippines is a magazine for men's lifestyle and classy style, I finally understand that the magazine content is more on the artistic photos, articles and updates of men's classy lifestyle. I now know that they are not leveling up with other men's magazine. But its a tough fight for Playboy Philippines to explain the tone down photo content, but I'm glad to see that people and readers are slowly accepting it.

more pics below after the jump! Playboy Philippines magazine March 2009 is now available in all stores.

Be a volunteer and help us spread the charity virus, be a Kaibigan ng PCSO member


photo by Edelweiza

PCSO in its 75th anniversary, formally launched their new project in volunteerism and charity works and it was called Kaibigan ng PCSO (Friends of PCSO), and because of that our country is having a major shortage of medical professionals and medicine in the time of crisis, PCSO is here to help again and put the balance of life and health to those who need medical and health attention. In their event, they launched a sign up volunteerism for everyone, and volunteers who signed up will have their own PCSO Health Card and will be put up in the priority list for those who seek financial assistance in hospitalization and medical support. Volunteers for charity work will be called and assigned to the designated area that you prefer and the program of "unity in volunteerism" will help many lives in many sectors of our country.

I officially joined the program, and as blogger, I am here to invite everyone to take a short step and help our fellow Filipinos in this charity project of PCSO, all you have to do is visit their website at http://www.pcso.gov.ph/kaibigan.aspx and download the registration form and submit it to them in order to join the Kaibigan ng PCSO. ( Read more my story below)


our video on stage


and part 2 of the video, thanks to Nicely, Sire and Edlweiza for the video.

Kaibigan ng PCSO is a program that will be pursued through the leadership of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) to systematize and rationalize the sourcing of volunteer individuals and organizations in partnership with the private sector to advance the charity agency’s health mandate. By establishing sustainable networks and linkages that will continuously recruit medical and health volunteers as well as generate additional resources, the program will be able to expand the reach of PCSO services that immediately address health concerns of needy Filipinos.

The program envisions that through this mode of intervention on a nationwide scale the corporate responsibility ethic of private corporations and companies will be enhanced, particularly with regard to health issues. It likewise seeks to promote the volunteerism spirit inherent in every Filipino.

Kaibigan ng PCSO recognizes the varying capabilities of individuals, groups, and corporate entities in the public and private sector in rendering vital volunteer work that meets the immediate health needs of the poor. It also gives importance to the value of individual and collective civic efforts and of raising these efforts to the level of “unity in volunteerism” to sustain a functioning and efficient health and medical assistance delivery system for poor Filipinos everywhere.

Me and Noemi Dado were on stage signing our volunteer registration form and we sign it together with different institutions to formally launch the charity project. We also got our first Kaibigan ng PCSO tshirt and I feel excited in the coming months to help out and travel with PCSO to lend my time in helping our people.

The event at the PSCO ground is a big celebation for its 75th anniversary, they even organized a childrens show in the afternoon, rock concert at night that was performed by Callalily, Maria's Mistress and Bamboo, Also celebrities and performers were there to give a happy music and promote the great contribution of PCSO. I'm not very aware of this, and I always think that PCSO is all lotto and prizes, but it just reminded me the acrnoym Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, then I heard from my sister that this office helped my cousin in the years of her battle against breast cancer. I'm very happy that they did help her, and I know the next individual will also be treated like that.
