The World of Luck started few days ago when they gave away 1 Million pesos, inserted in a fortune cookie, one lucky lady found it and it was indeed a world of luck for her day. As for us, who were present at the media event, we went home with luck when we tried the real fortune cookie and got a prize for our own. It was a lucky day at Resorts World Manila, and I’m excited on the upcoming attractions they will being for the month of February 2015.

5. Bituing Walang Ningning the musical – Resorts World Manila partnered with Viva Entertainment to bring back the classic movie and popular tv series that made the ever line “you’re nothing but a second grade, copy cat!” famous. It’s a spine chilling revelation when I heard that they will transform the entire movie and tv of Bituing Walang Ningning into a musical show.

The good part is…. Resorts World Manila and Viva will sched a search for a fresh talent to take the lead role of Dorina for this musical show.

Its like they are searching for a raw talent that will be the next superstar just like in the movie.
Backside of the story of “Bituing” is about a popular singer and her fan, but as time goes by, the fan joined a singing contest and then she won and became the next superstar, this made her stand next to her singing idol, who got jealous of the super star complex.

It’s a good movie, this is one of the best drama movie ever in Philippine movie history.


There will be talent search this Feb. If you are interested, you have to check and view the information posted at Resorts World Manila’s Facebook page.

The talent search program will be at the Atrium of the Newport Mall, there are no walls or VIP seats, everyone can go and watch the live audition. The judges – wants to feel the impact and performance level of the raw talent.

When I experienced the “birit” of one of the star of this show, Cris Villonco, she blew me away after singing “Bituing walang ninging”, my comment is that, the raw talent should surpass Cris's singing talent  in real life when it comes to singing.

geez…where can we find her?
abangan ang susunod na kabanata.


Yesterday, they revealed that Mark Bautista and Cris Villonco are the stars of the musical show.
