Tribute for my day

Here's a tribute for my day after an emotional ek ek that happened earlier., pero oks lang, I got my energy back after listening to Nirvana and Guns N Roses hahaha,  thanks to that radio station 99.5 RT for giving good vibes. I moved on already after meeting 3 ladies today that I stumbled on the way home (a friend, new client, and a girl in a car who got lost going to SM MOA )

But my energy went back when I learned that my baby boy is okay and having a full recovery, thanks to my wife for taking care of our son, and also doing some paper works for our family.

Hours ago, my wife and her sister are making jokes about thunders...and then that evening I remembered that I was listening to this song before I arrive home,   song is "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory" by  Johnny Thunders.

Happy 2nd Birthday to my son, Ashton

Happy Birthday Ashton!
My son is still sick today, and its his 3rd day in battling that fever. We dont have any party for this year, but my wife managed everything and order a birthday cake from Goldilocks and a bilao of pancit. Ashton woke up and a little bit cranky, maybe he got some headaches, he was okay this morning and but fever came back in the afternoon and it becomes worse at night time. We're bringing him back to the hospital for a blood test to find out what's wrong. Our E.R. visit 2 days ago checked the urinalysis and it was okay and normal. Doctors suggested that we bring him back on Friday if fever continues. I told my wife already to confine Ash right away after his pedia check up, but then we need to get Ash's pedia for approval of confinement.

Im here at the press con event by Penshoppe. Ian is here to answer all questions from the media.

RisingStars.ph and Azrael's Merryland Blog - Singing contest! Week 1

Ian Somerhalder in Manila (see you later) #PenshoppeAllStars


It's all over the news already and also on Twitter about Ian Somerhalder's visit here in the Philippines for being one of the new endorsers/model for Penshoppe. Reading his post on Twitter showed that he's excited for his adventure and first ever trip here in the Philippines , he also posted that he spent a nice dinner with the Penshoppe team in a remote island (in El Nido, Palawan), he posted a tweet that he watched Lady Gaga's concert last night and then he prepares to surf the big city of Manila today. First, I learned the news via Twitter, some of my friends tweeted me and asking for confirmation if Ian Somerhalder will be here, at first I didn't got any news about it, but then after one week, the official news came in and its already on TV and showbiz blogs.

Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore in the hit tv series "The Vampire Diaries" (on its 3rd season this Sept.2012) will be walking on the red carpet with Penshoppe here in Manila, his visit was first confirmed by PR Asia Worldwide's lead publicist, Joyce Ramirez. 

Read Joyce Ramirez's official statement “We are pleased to confirm that actor Ian Somerhalder has accepted our offer and is now (officially) part of PENSHOPPE “All Stars.”

“Ian is now en route to Manila, Philippines joining the all star cast of Team PENSHOPPE.”

“PENSHOPPE is very excited to work with Ian and our team is doing everything to make this a truly memorable visit for him. He will be staying in the Philippines for a week to shoot his campaign at an environmental-friendly resort as well as participate in a press conference to be held in Manila.”

“Hopefully, Ian gets a chance to meet his adoring Filipino fans who have supported him in The Vampire Diaries for the last two top rating seasons. Fans can also look forward to as Ian visits a flagship PENSHOPPE store.”
Today, Penshoppe is making their own Avengers, their own Penshoppe All Stars that includes Thai superstar Mario Maurer, Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl) and Zac Efron (High School Musical and Lucky One movie).

For the photo shoot, Penshoppe secured the expertise of Hollywood A-list photographer, Darren Tieste to do the photo shoot with Ian Somerhalder for Penshoppe, the shoot will be for Penshoppe's 2012-2013 campaign. Darren authors "The Beauty Book", featuring some of the world's biggest stars led by Scarlett Johansson on the cover.

Here are some more info about Ian
Ian currently stars in the CW's "The Vampire Diaries" opposite Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev. The show is returning for its third season in mid-September 2012. Based on the books by L.J. Smith the show centers around Elena Gilber, a high school girl torn between two vampire brothers. He plays Damon Salvatore, the elder and far more dangerous of the two brothers who share a long and bitter history. 
The first season of the show premiered to the CW's highest ratings and won the 2010 People's Choice Award for "Favorite New TV Drama."  Ian won the 2010 Teen Choice Award for "Choice TV Villain" for his portrayal of Damon on the show. At the 2011 Teen Choice Awards, “The Vampire Diaries” was the winner for the Choice Sci-Fi TV Show.
Ian is also well known for his role as 'Boone' on J.J. Abrams' critically acclaimed drama "Lost" (aired regionally on AXN Asia) from 2004 to 2010. Ian won the 2005 SAG Award as part of "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series" and "Lost" won the 2005 Emmy Award for "Best Television Series - Drama." The show was also nominated for the 2004 Golden Globe Award and the 2004 People's Choice Award. He later returned to the show for it's final season in 2010. 
Ian recently starred in the Sci Fi Channel's TV movie "Lost City Raiders" opposite James Brolin. "Lost City Raiders" premiered to record ratings and was the Sci Fi Channel's 5th watched movie event of 2008. He also starred in the Hallmark Channel's miniseries "Marco Polo" where he played the title character of Marco Polo opposite Brian Dennehy and B.D Wong.

On stage, Ian starred Off Broadway in Trip Cullman's ensemble, "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead," an "unauthorized parody" that follows the travails of "Charlie Brown," America's most hapless cartoon character, all grown up. The spoof of the Charles Schulz comic strip "Peanuts" follows the original gang a decade later as their beloved beagle companion dies. Ian co-starred with Eddie Kaye Thomas, Eliza Dushku, America Ferrera, Ari Gaynor, Logan Marshall-Green, Keith Nobbs and Kelli Garner.

Okay, that's the news for now..I hope that Zac Efron will visit us here in Manila, and I wish for a female line up for Penshoppe All Star in the future, so that their own Penshoppe Avengers is complete. I read here that Leighton Meester will be here in Manila too for for IMPACT: PENSHOPPE at Philippine Fashion Week! (news via Penshoppe Facebook)

Lady Gaga arrived in a hotel in Manila #SMARTLadyGaga #LadyGagaSMArena


I just saw this video this morning from the Facebook page of SMART.

(video from SMART)

Lady Gaga photos of her arrival in Manila last Saturday #SMARTLadyGaga #LadyGagaSMArena

I was in Baguio when I heard the news that Lady Gaga already arrived in the Philippines and then I got shocked to know that I was considered to be at Lady Gaga's hotel to cover her arrival,  a rep. from SMART told me that  they know I'm in Baguio for the blog conference and it will be impossible for me to teleport back to  Manila because teleportation is not yet invented in real life, but that's okay, I'ts great to see her in these photos and that she's ready to rock the SM Arena for the 1st time and perform infront of thousands of her fans for the 2nd time.

I'll watch the concert tonight and I'm so excited to watch her concert AGAIN!

here are the rest of the photos

There's a new promo again for this concert via SMART, I'll post that on a separate blog entry. I'll do massive live tweet coverage using my SMARTNET app so check in and see the hashtag #SMARTLadyGaga and #LadyGagaSMArena

Nice to meet you Cordillera Bloggers

I'm home now and tired after traveling on land  non stop from North Luzon to South Luzon. Its great to meet our new blogging community here in the Philippines, thanks and congratulations to the Cordillera Bloggers for representing the Northern Luzon blogging community and organizing the First Baguio Blog Conference , its funny that they tag their group as the "taga bundok" bloggers, because their city is in the cordillera mountain regions - from Benguet to Baguio City. They are very accommodating and fun to be with, I love the food tripping and chill out nights, arts and culture tour and sharing lots of ghost stories. I have seen the other side of lifestyle in Baguio and now I'm curious to learn more about it and I'm going to stay for long next time on my next visit, if ever my time is flexible here in Manila. Lots of places to explore, new food to try, trek mountain and hills, meet new friends to collaborate with and many more. I can say that on my next visit in  Baguio City, I will never feel alone and my trip there for a bloggers event is the best ever!

Thanks to Vince and the rest of the team for inviting us and organize this event for all. Thanks to the event sponsors  eps. to Smart, Azalea Residences, Sun Cellular, Unilab, Solid Hosting, Kubong Sawali, University of Baguio and 18BC for supporting our friends to make this event successful.

I'm going to bed now.. kasi parang iba na yung na type ko dito at sobra antok na ko hehhehe.

good night!
