I got a lot of wow moments since LG G2 was released, for LG G3, I know that it will be better, but for a LG G4 that was released today in the Philippines, its double the best specs you can ask for and what I see is that LG G4 carries a better camera, better screen and a body that are fit for the grip of humans.

INTERVIEW with WWE Diva Eva Marie (Azrael’s Merryland Blog exclusive)

Eva Marie 06042013rf 076 w1 copy1

The world of WWE is changing and it changes more when they introduced the new batches of their WWE Divas, it’s a female version for the WWE wrestling and its makes a lot of raves of feedback already because of the their reality tv show Total Divas, were we can see the behind the scene story and real life situations of these WWE female wrestlers.

One of the most popular WWE Diva is Eva Marie (Natalie Nelson), a WWE Diva who started first as a model who then climbed its way up to the top from the Total Diva series and WWE matches. Eva Marie promised her fans to be back on the ring once again, she just finished her recovery from an injury and she will be back as better than before.

Check out my interview of her below, You see that I’m not a fan of these WWE Diva, but after this interview, they brought me back to WWE and it made me an interest to watch them again. Thanks to Eva Marie for the interview, John Ruzicka of WWE and Lhen of Ogilvy for this rare opportunity to interview the Red Nation Queen Eva Marie.

Me: Hi Eva Marie, thanks for giving me this opportunity for a phone interview
Eva Marie:  oh absolutely, thank you
Me: so here are my questions and I thank also the fans who helped me generate these questionnaires

How are you today?, You know that many fans are waiting for you to come back and do more action in the ring
Eva Marie: You know what I'm doing fabulous, hopefully I'm back in action in couple of weeks, you can see me definitely back in the ring.

Why wrestling? and not other career?

Eva Marie: You know what for me, when I decided to go ahead to try out to be a WWE Diva, it was because I was an athlete in my entire life, I have two brothers so I grew up a major tomboy and I play soccer through out college and after I graduate, I moved to LA and did some modeling and acting a little but then WWE went to LA doing a Diva search, when I found it out there's this opportunity, I was like omigosh, its my dream job not only to be extremely athletic to handle the physicality inside the ring, but you get all walk the red carpet and WWE is amazing and we do so much for the community, I already been to Afghanistan to visit the troops, I worked with special Olympics already, there are so much outreach programs that we do.

How is it being in the WWE ?is it different to have a normal life and begin in the WWE
Eva Marie
: For me, its my dream job, the only struggle and difference is the travel we do, all travel around on the road, its about 290 days in a year, that's the biggest struggle but for me what really cool is to see lots of little girls and boys they dye their hair red, that's the best feeling in the world running into fans and seeing have them have my hair color is pretty awesome.

Who do you look up to in the WWE?
Eva Marie
: You know what, Right now I'm actually under the training of Brian Hendricks and he was a former WWE superstar, I really look up to him just because his attitude is extremely positive and he's being able to mold me already into a better performer and wrestler, so I guess I look up to him.

What are the best advises from your trainer to you for your wrestling career?
Eva Marie
: To never give up, strive to be better than you are yesterday, that’s the biggest thing, because specially in the entertainment world its like what we do for a living, its not easy to get out there in front of many people and make them see a great show because they buy tickets and watching you, to whatever you want to do, just continue doing everything great in single day to be better  yourself living before.

How tough is Eva Marie after taking so much beating and slamming?How do you recover after?
Eva Marie: Surprisingly enough, the body just kind of used to it for sure, my first few weeks getting slammed in the ring were definitely painful .. but I do lots salt bath and lots of ice and then you want some more.

How do you maintain your physique? any special strict diet/program that you're following?
Eva Marie: You know what, I tried to break a sweat in every single day, no matter what, My regimen is break a sweat in every single day, it helps and my husband is extremely fair and pro and he motivates me to go to the gym everyday but also you should have endurance to definitely be better and I work out in every single day and my diet is pretty strict, I eat a lot of protein and vegetables and I stay away from any process food as possible, but I am human and I love a cheat day, as a major sweet tooth, so allow myself 

How’s being on Total Divas different in competing in the ring?
Eva Marie: Its the biggest difference is that in WWE you show up there in character and then in Total Divas, what really cool is that its different from any reality show and it really shows the backstage peek what it is really like to be in a WWE not only the cameras following us and traveling around the city, you also take a peek of our personal lives, I know you guys are in Season 1 right now, you get to see myself and the other girls get evolve, you see we do make up, break up, we get more fights but you see our home situation, you saw me get married on the show, me and my husband go public together, and you also see that he proposed on the show, its just like to see the little snippets of our personal lives, then  in Monday RAW is based on stripped story lines of your character, because you can see there our everyday struggle.

We all have family and husbands, we are balancing our personal lives but we also are on the road quite a bit, and Total Divas is showing that to the world. The great part in Total Divas is that it hit a different demographics, a lot more little girls and moms tuning in to Monday night RAW because they want to see us girls get dirty in the ring, and its really cool and you see that there’s a diverse audience getting from WWE and Total Divas and vice versa.


How about retirement, is it listed in under your long term plan ?
Eva Marie
: just started, Eva Marie just arrived and  all everything, I haven’t even began what I’m about to do in doing major imprint in WWE Diva, and as well in Total Divas, I just began and there’s no plan of retiring any time soon.

Any messages to your WWE fans and WWE Diva fans in the Philippines?
Eva Marie
: I love each every one of you, their support is everything to me that was keeps me going in every single day, I saw them on Twitter and Instagram the awesome messages that I get, It motivates me to be the best possible as it can be, so I'm very grateful for everyone over there, I want to say thank you so much for the continued support for Red Nation

Interview with Beto Perez, the creator of Zumba is here in Manila

Zumba creator, Beto Perez in Manila

Beto Perez, the creator of Zumba is here in Manila to host the first outdoor fitness concert in Circuit Makati this May 10, Sunday at the Live Love Party event.

Check out below the interview of Beto Perez with the media and bloggers from the press con event.

for event details , check out
or read my blog about it at

Zumba creator, Beto Perez in Manila

Whats the physical quality of Zumba that appeals to the international audience ?

Beto Perez - I think for many years the fitness industry create programs for the fitness people and this is only 10% people in the world, when I create the Zumba, but I first don't like to be labeled as the creator, the only creator is God. I did have the opportunity to do something for causality and after the last important thing in the fitness industry was like 20 or 18 years ago, do you remember Taebo with kick boxing with Billy Blanks?? then after that nothing happened. And I think when Zumba was created, we go back to the beginning of the aerobics, do you remember Jane Fonda, it was fun, effective and easy, then we come back with this philosophy again and do the party, because Zumba is a party, so we create fun, effective and easy.

For so many years, the fitness industry created the "no pain, no gain", I think this philosophy doesn't work with me, for me the philosophy is "if you don't smile, you don't gain", because this is my idea, for the people to have a good time, did you see the amazing energy we created here during the Zumba?, all people smile and have fun, and everyone did a great time, this is my idea, people have a good time, you can make an amazing result and do something positive. This is the magic of Zumba, do something for fun and we never created this program as a business, I never think like saying "Okay I want to create something fun and make more money and create an empire in the world and be the best" , No, I'm not like that, you know the movie Forrest Gump, do you remember when Forrest started running and then people followed him, I feel like that I’m Forrest Gump, One day I started to dance and then people followed me, I don't know why, but I think God gave me a tool do something like that.

Where did Zumba name come from ?
Beto Perez - When I come to Miami, I have this class in Colombia, the country where I grew up, I teach this class in Colombia called Rumba, but the word "rumba" is a rhythm, but in Colombia it means "lets party", lets go to rumba or lets go the fiesta, when I come to America, the word is hard for the Americans to pronounce, they say rhumba, they say shrumba, thrumba, and then I change it for another name which is an ugly name, then when I met my business partners and then we sat down in Starbucks to talk about changing the name, we think of a name like - mango, trumba, tonga, conga, minga, hakuna matata, and then my business partner says "Sumba", but for me, I like to put the word with a "z", because when I was a kid, I was a big fan of Zorro, its very simple and easy, and back then the Zumba word means nothing and its just a cocky name.

Zumba creator, Beto Perez in Manila

What can you say about the Philippines Zumba instructors, their talent, hospitality ?
Beto Perez - First of all, its my 1st time here, and for the last two years or three years, I receive a lot of messages in Instagram and Facebook, inviting me to come here in the Philippines and then comes the Pacquiao, I want Pacquiao to win, for me he is the winner, and when I come here in the country, I felt like I'm in Colombia, because we are in the same ecuador line, we have the same plants, air, temp, animals, we are like in the jungle, its very humid, but I love it, you have amazing food, beautiful woman here and amazing energy, and everyone loves to dance and I feel like I'm in Colombia, its beautiful, I love it, thank you very much, because you opened your mind for this program and the only thing I can do here is to come here, teach class and say thank you.

How did you overcome the challenges in not speaking English when you first started in America?
Beto Perez- I come to America for 4 times, then I go home and come back again, looking for opportunities, then finally on my 3rd visit someone gave me a chance. You know that II didn't speak English and I got some problems with these visa, but then the person I met gave me some opportunity.

In my class in America, I don't speak to them because I don’t know how to speak English and I only use my body language for people to understand me, and then I sleep in the street and some park in Miami for 2 nights because I have nothing and I started with nothing. And I want the people know that everything is possible, if you have dreams, its okay, but you have to know to have that dream, its important to have dreams, but you need to know to grab those dreams, you can dream to be the best journalist of the world, that is hard, but you have to think that you can be the best journalist of the world and say yes its possible.

You must think positive plus positive and the result is positive, that's my philosophy, and I learned all these things, because I started to live alone when I was 15 years old, I don't have a father, my mom is a single parent, and I don't have any relatives, and then I learned on how to defend my self, my mom told me if you want to do something, you have to work hard and remember where you come from, that's I think is a perfect sample that everything is impossible, if I can do it, then everyone can do it.

How Zumba is different from other fitness exercises?
Beto Perez - I think the music is important, and others don't pay attention to the music, some exercises have cheap music, its like full of beats, its the only music you can hear, for me our company invested more on music, we now have a music platform for Zumba music, we have famous artist who works with us, because we are like a radio station, First was the music and Second we never created this program to lose weight, but we created this program to have fun and smile, that's a big difference, and some psychologist hates Zumba, because people who are depressed and who have problems, no longer required to pay $100 for a therapy, but they just pay $10 for a Zumba class and they smile after the class.

Zumba is a family, its a big family, I'm surprised that some people create tattoo in their arm and sometimes they do defend the Zumba brand, its like a Coca Cola, people buy it and sometimes collect tshirt and merchandise, and its like Zumba and people defend it because the most important is that people started from nothing and become successful, if people are successful, and then I am successful too. This is the big difference, not about the money, but its being successful too.

What's the fitness formula for obtaining and healthy physique like you?
Beto Perez - You need discipline, not just doing Zumba, you have to eat, do training. I'm doing Zumba because its a perfect cardio for me, it can burn calories, I tried other programs to see if its effective but it takes time for the result, but for Zumba it works quickly, because when I dance and I smile, my endorphins are active more because I'm happy and excited, my heart pumps more blood, it means that I burn a lot of calories, and when I do Zumba, I use slow and fast music, and it can burn more calories than I run. Also you have to eat good, do Zumba and be happy, and the most important thing is that I say to our instructors that they should be careful with their ego, the ego should go down, because ego are poison and its a big mistake for humans. Everybody love to say they are the best and number one, but they have to be careful because the instructor needs to think first is their students.

But what about you body physique? can you tell us more about it?
Beto Perez - I was so skinny before, and I was so small. I teach 22 classes for week, and then teach more class, I was so skinny and my problem is that I need to gain more weight. When I reached 33 years old, I promised myself that when I reach 35 years old, I want to change, I want to give a gift to my body, I will train, work hard and be good and then here's the result.

How many calories can you burn in a Zumba for 30 minutes.
Beto Perez - It depends on the body, if you do the class slow, you can burn maybe 300-400 calories, but if you do an intense Zumba maybe you can burn 800 calories, what's 800 calories?, its like a bar of chocolate and that's equals to 800 calories. If you eat one, then you can Zumba and go back to zero that calories.

Will calorie go less when you eat after Zumba session.
Beto Perez - For me, after the Zumba class, I'm thirsty, I just drink water. I don't feel hungry after the class because I'm excited and I want to continue to dance and do more Zumba.

Can zumba give you abs ?
Beto Perez - yes, because when you dance and move with lots of swaying of the hips, you put a lot of work on the hips and stomach.

What inspired you to create Zumba ?

Beto Perez - First of all, Zumba was created by accident, and before that I'm an aerobic instructor, step and high impact instructor, outside of it I love to dance, and it separates fitness from dancing. And then one day, I forgot to bring my aerobics music to my class and then I decided to use that cassette tape that I have where I recorded music from a radio station, then I played the music and improvised for an hour. I never sit down and think to create a Zumba program but I created this for accident, a simple accident that's it.

Not everyone is aware about the Zumba specialties, can you share more about this?
Beto Perez - I don't even know if Zumba is the father or mother of the program, but then under it I created Zumba toning with maracas, you work your biceps and play the maracas, then I created Zumba Aqua, its Zumba in water, its hard and you thought that its soft under water, then I created Zumba for kids, then I created Zumba for PWD, then I created also Zumba with chairs, but don't think its for sexy, but its for the triceps and you dance around the chair. Then I created the Zumba steps, its like the classic steps and then added with some Zumba flavors, these are the products we have now.

Zumba creator, Beto Perez in Manila

Can you share with us your singing talent?
Beto Perez - Ohh I don't sing, I love music, I'm not a singer, I have producers working for me for the zumba music, and I have this concept of music, I love fusion music, like reggae and samba fusion, but sometimes for the music we created, sometimes I say something stupid like "ohh hey Beto yeahh for the first time ohh yeah" hahahaha. All these things people think its cool, but no I don't sing, I just play, Its a balance of funny, I just create these video clips and its pretty popular now in Youtube, but now...I don't want to sing, are you crazy? no.. maybe play a lip sync hahahah

Any plans of doing acting or doing movies since you are now famous?
Beto Perez - The good news is that this is the first country to know that we're creating now my life story, it’s a tv series, and its coming soon this 2016. I will not act, but they will find a professional actor to play my character.

If you can choose a Hollywood celebrity to play your life, who would it be ?
Beto Perez- ohh pls help me, my assistant knows all the business and the show business around the world.... (assistant: no, you are unique), aahaha yeah I'm the only Beto in the world

Zumba creator, Beto Perez in Manila

What the Filipino Zumba fans can expect this Sunday?

Beto Perez - The people from this country, loves to party and music, its very natural and its in your blood, I can feel it. I have a very cool class this Sunday, its Mothers day and its a privilege to teach with lots of mothers. You love music and I expect this will be a party. I think I will give the best thing for myself to my class and its my first time here and I only can say is to say thank you and I will do my very best for you.

What do you think about the Filipino licensed Zumba instructors compare to other countries ?
Beto Perez - Ohhh you know, I think you have already the talent, the only thing we can do for this concert is to be organized, we need to follow the rules, and respect the rules, because this is a serious company and a career, and you need to think professionally, the most important for the company to give for the instructor to be successful is to have the clothes, the tools, choreography, the music, but you still have to practice, you need to have discipline, if you want to go up and go forward, we can give you anything, the music and the career, but you have to practice, and I think the Filipinos have already the talent, and I have seen our massive trainers here and they represent your country very well.

I just received a news from Twitter re: the post super fight of Mayweather and Pacquiao last May 2  and it says according to their data and stats with the #MayPac hashtag and tweets, they observed that our fighter Manny Pacquiao wins the unanimous tweets as the People’s Champ. I’m sure everyone agrees because we saw it in our own eyes the result of the boxing match with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr wins the super fight vs. Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision (check my fight observation here)

I’m sure that my fellow Filipinos are disappointed at the outcome of the unanimous decision, we know that Manny Pacquiao won the 12 rounds super fight because he charges more than Floyd in many rounds. We know that Floyd tried to knock down Manny but still it give an upset to Manny for running away and avoiding to attack him.

A good Filipino traditional food in Hermana restaurant, Ayala Malls Serin Tagaytay

Hermana restaurant in Ayala Malls Serin, Tagaytay City

We discovered Hermana restaurant located in Ayala Malls Serin in Tagaytay City, it’s a nice restaurant that offers a a traditional Filipino taste and flavor. At first it looks like an upscale restaurant due to its interiors and colors. I admit that we skipped on visiting this restaurant during the 3 day old opening of the mall complex here in Tagaytay City. On our first visit to this restaurant, we took the time to check their menu outside and there I was surprised that the price of the food is just right and okay.
