J. Alfonso de Dios challenges the status quo and changes paradigms for good

In a world that relies profoundly on fast and efficient transmission of information, the need to put brands’ commercial messages on air through a secure, cost-efficient and reliable process becomes more critical. Sadly, the communication technology and transmission infrastructure in the Philippines has not kept pace with the frenetic progress of communication and information exchange. As a case in point, we can look at the multi-billion peso Philippine advertising industry, where brands still dub digitally produced TV commercials into analog Betacam tapes and send these via messengers to TV stations for broadcast. This is obviously an archaic process that compromises the brand’s commercial message, is inefficient and not cost-effective.

American Idol season 13 premieres tonight at 6pm in Star World #beapartofit

It’s time to get hooked in cable tv again! because the 13th season of the American Idol will air live via satellite tonight at 6pm of January16, 2014, the premiere of the new season will air in Star World, with replays at 8pm and also 11pm. I’m not a fan of American Idol before, because I was hooked to Rockstar only, but the reality rock star search contest ended after 2 season, and after that I went back to American Idol, just peeking the who, the what, the finalist and the winner.

As year goes by, American Idol aka AI is getting better and better… Okay..I’m going glue myself for this season and see if ever we have another emerging pinoy singer to raise our flag once again.

Btw, this season will heat up the pinoy blood becuase we have an OFW who just  won recently in a same type reality based contest.

A preview of SM Jazz mall and residences in Makati

Hello SM Jazz!!! Its such a great feeling to be inside a new SM mall and also new SM Jazz residence, I’m excited to see and discover what’s new here in SM Jazz mall. It’s a new mall and residential concept combined into one building being done by the SM group. Mall at the ground level and the residential is placed on top of it. People who lives there will enjoy not only staying at home, but also having the convenience of shopping without traveling too far.

Fratini's Restaurant in SM Jazz Makati

I’m not really sure if it’s a dream or its just my imagination, Fratini’s Restaurant is very familiar to me and I’m not sure if I ate in one of their branches outside the country or maybe I just saw an ad or image of it online. Maybe its deja vu, and I’m glad that my visit in their restaurant will happen in real life, so I guess this is no longer a day dream.

December 31, 2013 – It’s spa time!!! We went here in Tagaytay Bali Village Hotel Resort and Spa just to ocular the place, but when my wife saw the the spa are is nice and the price is reasonable, she decided to stop over for a while and get a full body massage. I told her that we can’t let our son join the spa area because he might disturb the other guest inside the resort, so we think of taking turns for the spa session, she goes first and then I’ll take care of our son at the playground, it’s just a one hour wait, and if Ashton got tired of playing at the playground, we can have some merienda or he can sleep in my arms.

In front of the andas, rope and tension of people - Feast of the Black Nazarene 2014–part 5 END

This is my first time to be standing in front of the Black Nazarene and its million of devotees last Thursday in Manila. During my past coverage, I usually stand away from it in order to be safe from the stampede and tension of the people, my first taste of covering the procession was in 2010. I just want to have some life changing experience and I gave a go and went on the other way and instead of going to an MRT station and head back home after the mass. Last year was an accidental coverage for me, I was so close to the Black Nazarene and I didn’t expected that I will at the crowd area and with 15 feet away from the statue, I was late that time and I first felt the stampede and how the 50+ people fell from the rail of the bridge and landed in my toes, it was like a building falling down and all I can see was dust, smoke and big BLAG!!!. like a dominos.
