NEWS: Noynoy Aquino set to appear on CNN Talk Asia on June 16 8:30 PM


(photo credit: Jay Morales and CNN Talk Asia)

This week’s Talk Asia gets a unique insight into Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino and his family’s political legacy. CNN’s Arwa Damon travels to Tarlac to meet the Philippines' President-elect at his family’s estate.

24 years after his mother became President, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino is set to be sworn in to office on June 30, almost a month after the country's general election. Winning the presidential election by a landslide, Aquino has promised his people change: “It seems that for such a long time you’ve been told to persevere and forbear, and to just tolerate the system when you don’t have to. Let us be your instruments in affecting these changes… We are the public servants, you are the public, you are the masters, you are the ones who have the decisions, wants and needs that should be respected and delivered, and we will bring it back to that point.” (more below)

The Philippine Fashion Week 2010 and Afterparty sponsored by Sunsilk Co-creations last May 23, 2010 was truly a night of fashion, beauty, and of course, great hair.

Staged at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium, fashion designers created new fashion trends with inspiration from four variants of the new Sunsilk Co-creations collection. Sunsilk Co-creations is created by Hair Experts around the world to give you expert-treated salon-quality hair you always loved.

What a better way to cap the night’s stunning success than a Bloggers Afterparty at Taste Asia? Well, the bloggers came and they conquered. It was a jam-packed party with great food and good music. Our bloggers even had the chance to blog on the spot, thanks to Villman, who provided laptops during the Bloggers Afterparty.

Not only that! Sunsilk Co-creations gave each and every blogger a challenge. Come up with a blog post with the message “Only Beautiful Hair from the New Best-Ever Sunsilk Completes My Fashion Statement.”

Lenovo Philippines will be giving away an Ideapad S10-2 to the best blogger! Five (5) Ipod nanos will also be given away.

MOVIES: Predators are coming this July 8


Oscar®-winner Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”) bands together with award-winning actor Laurence Fishburne (“Matrix” movies), Topher Grace (“Spider-Man 3”), Alice Braga (“I Am Legend”) and Walton Goggins (“The Shield”) in this year’s sci-fi event movie “Predators.”

In the all new “Predators” directed by Nimrod Antal, Brody plays Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.

Created with flickr slideshow.

I just don't know what I'm going to do today,I felt sick and tired already and I need a complete sleep, been juggling lots of priorities, blog-work-social media-baby-event, and it seems that I can't work on with it at the same time, and now I'm burned up and I took a Friday rest, but still I'm tired and need to finish this pre-production plan and preparation for the event. The event briefing last night was great, it was the first time that we occupied the conference room A and it was the biggest crowd we have of different kinds of exhibitors and also our partners. I'm also thankful that all our production team and staff are always on stand by and because of them, our event won't make it to the finish line. I love the food caterer, Kusina ni Kambal just hypnotized me with their beef lugaw and tokwa't baboy heheh.

I still need to finish all these collateral designs and finish the last ads for print and tv.
hey guys! do check out inquirer.net , our banner ads are displaying in all their pages. astig!

and all I can say is... I'm tired..and looks like my head will going to explode.

As I heard one of the winning candidate in the previous election is a gamer otaku, and I wont tell who it is, hehehe, he's a big online game player. Check out the news from Japan, and a local politician's gimik in organizing a cosplay party for his campaign in the coming election.

and for the news, via Anime News Network
40-year-old economic commentator Takaaki Mitsuhashi campaigned for this summer’s House of Councillors election by hosting a “cosplay party” at the Liberal Democratic Party’s Tokyo headquarters on Saturday. Mitsuhashi previously wrote an economic analysis of the popular online bulletin board system 2channel, and he appeared at the party dressed as the calculating father figure Gendō from Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series. About 200 people participated in the party with Mitsuhashi in cosplay, karaoke, and other activities

MOVIES: Karate Kid 2010 movie review by a kung fu master blogger


Everyone is talking about this movie and there's a big debate about the title and the story of the movie Karate Kid starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, son of actor Will Smith. But there are mixed reviews from good to bad one and raves from new viewers of Karate Kid and some purist and fans of the classic movie by Pat Morita and Ralph Macchio.

The classic film is played every time in our local cable tv and also in a local channel and I heard that many viewers didn't like the classic film, while others aimed to support the new film, but given the respect to the classic film, some say that Jackie Chan Karate Kid is for the new generation and an ongoing legacy of discipline, respect, hard work, and love of the classic Karate Kid. I just saw the film and I'm posting here my reviews and some reactions.

check out below for more reviews and feature of the movie
