360 Selfie Does First Dynamic Infinity Booth in the Philippines

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

One of the shots I got from the Holo Foto, made the cut to be my official Facebook photo!

I distinctly remember the time I got my first 360 Selfie Slomo and Holo Foto during the E! Bloggers Ball last year. I think it was just an ingenious way to keep precious memories immortalized on video or via the printed hologram card. We were all clad in our best outfits, strutting the purple carpet lined with tons of lights, blinding flashes and just about every blogger I know was there. Back then, the lines were so long because everyone wanted to get their videos and photos taken, including me who usually stands on the photographer lines during fashion week. Their innovative products at 360 Selfie just made it exciting, I was ecstatic once I got to the pedestal.

This year, they have upped the ante with another feature. In Japan, people fancy infinity rooms that looks endless in every corner. If you've seen the work of famed artist Yayoi Kusama and a couple more art installations in the land of the rising sun, it all looks so out of this world seeing some of my friends take selfies and video posts inside them and I've always wondered how it looked and feel like if you're there. Now, you don't have to go travel thousands of miles just to get one because 360SelfiePH has got you covered with the first ever Dynamic Infinity Booth called the GlamShot Infinity Booth. It is inspired from Japan's digital art museun called Teamlab Borderless. Check out how the unkabogable Vice Ganda had so much fun in the GlamShot Infinity Crystals.

Check out how gorgeous Lovi Poe did the GlamShot Infinity Geometry. These were all taken at the recent MEGA Equality Ball. This all happened during June, when people were celebrating Pride Month.

These GlamShot Infinity Booths are also completely customizable and you can have 6 scenes to choose from. They recommend you choose two per event so people can have variety, you can also brand it if you need to. The Mega Equality Ball never looked so nice with all these stars, they're telling their stories through video and photos, they didn't even have to go to Japan just to be in it.

If you're looking for that next awesome flavor for your events, this is definitely it! Check their IG page: @360SelfiePH or their website 360SelfiePH.com because it's all there!


Jollibee Burger Steak Stays at P50

Monday, June 24, 2019

Hungry today so after having a cup of coffee at my favorite joint in Tomas Morato, I headed on to Jollibee in the same area. This place is 24 hours, pretty busy all day and I remember lots of my few moments with Dad happened here. He used to only give me 100 bucks per day when I was in college and I had to struggle making lunch or breaks with it because even then everything was expensive.

I miss my Dad... every... single... day.

Today, I have real appreciation with the Jollibee Burger Steak that still held its price of 50 pesos while keeping that beefy, saucy goodness you crave for when you're hungry as a bear. I am on a no rice diet but this just gave me that comforting feeling I need to get away from the stresses of life. If you've been rice deprived as I am you'll learn to appreciate what a cup of rice means when it's gone, you cry a little when it touches your mouth hahaha!

Jollibee's Marketing Director for Core Products Ms. Mari Aldecoa says "When you’re on a tight budget and the craving for something delicious kicks in, there’s no better way to do it than with the affordable and filling Jollibee Burger Steak.”  

So head on to your neighborhood Jollibee store and get that same thing Anne Curtis loves to sing and dance about, the Jollibee Burger Steak stays at P50, P59 if you want a drink with it. Darn cheap if you ask me!

And yes, (mabuti pa yung price nito nag STAY, eh yung ex mo hindi!). Gibberish.

David Licauco for Because I Love You

It was a different guy I met a few days ago during a sit down interview with one of the stars of the movie Because I Love You, he’s David Licauco. It’s a movie produced by ALV Films, Garahe Productions and distributed by Regal Entertainment. I have been able to talk to him in the past and during those times, he wasn’t as keen in joining show business, a little meek, nonchalant, so you get the vibe he was doing this for the wrong reasons. Even with his good looks and demigod body, he (some til now) was actually very shy and timid, so you really come across a little strong especially with those brows that made him look even tougher in person - and on screen. Talking to him yesterday felt different, he was more warm, very candid and talked straight to the point when we interviewed him. I liked this more than my first encounter, he was like in love when he spoke about Shaira Mae Dela Cruz who appears in the film as Summer, a very feisty fire woman who falls in love with Rael (the man who’s got everything).

I couldn’t quite pinpoint what changed with him but he’s quite more endearing now, more warm, and I hope people see how he has improved a lot with his acting. The young gentleman even went the length of being under the wing of an acting coach so he could hone his craft and be good at this, as it shows on this Because I Love You film and the digital series he had with GMA.

You must like David Licauco for one or more reasons, but if you want to see how this almost impossible love story unfold and see how a rich committed guy end up falling for a beautiful lass, watch it on theaters this coming June 26th on malls, movie houses nationwide!

Who knows, you might fall in love with David too! :)


Idol Philippines Top 12

Sunday, June 23, 2019

Search for the Idol Philippines this evening was full of upsets, the press had their favorites but it turned out most of them (and possibly yours) have not made it on the top 12.

But this is good news for Dan Ombao, Elle Ocampo, Fatima Louise, Lance Busa, Lucas Garcia, Matty Juniosa, Miguel Odron, Rachel Libres, Renwick Benito, Sheland Faelnar, Trish Bonilla and Zephanie Dimaranan because that means they’ll be the IDOL Top 12.

Plus on week 1, they will be taught by no other than Maestro Ryan Cayabyab. Then they will be getting 50% from the judges and 50% will be via public idol votes so you really have to do your work as fans , it ain’t gonna work if you’re just gonna sit there and watch.

I like Matty, Trish, Lucas, but of course I am just one person. If you want your idol to win, you need to watch the live competitions and see how they fare in these last few weeks. The world is watching and if we’re sending someone to the idol stage somewhere else it better represent how good we are as singers in this side of the globe.

We do what we do.


Predator Powers PUBG SEA Championships Season 2

Been playing this for a long time and I wonder how I haven’t been able to play this professionally. News got out that Predator has sponsored the PUBG Championship Season 2 held in the land of smiles, Thailand. With this, teams from Thailand (4), Vietnam (4), Indonesia (3), Philippines (2), and Malaysia/Singapore (1) will battle it out for supremacy in the region plus the whopping USD 100,000 in cash!

This is organized by MET Events, the largest esports event organizer in Asia and it will kick off the Bangkok leg on June 29-30. The Philippine Qualifier last June 22-23 had ArkAngel on top and hopefully after Bangkok, they’ll win on July 26-28 for the MET Asia Series PUBG Classic for a USD 300,000 prize pot!

Can’t wait to see the Philippines conquer this! Let’s go!


Philam Does Critical Illness Coverage

Friday, June 21, 2019

Philam Life went to its roots and today they are introducing a new product to stay ahead, to have an edge over critical illness. The product is called the AIA Critical Protect 100. It lays focus on living a healthier life. Critical Illness cost 2Million Pesos on average and that is hard for anyone to put up. Now Philam Life covers 0 to 100 years old, 100 kinds of critical illnesses, Gender Specific Recovery benefit plus more on Philam Vitality. Usually coverages are for 18 to 65, but now they do it for children and people beyond 76 years old. For Nico Bolzico, he needs to spend 113 pesos per day for the next 20 years. This is for a total of 2 Million coverage. Face Amount is 1M, Minor CI benefit 250K, Gender Specific Cancer Benefit 500K, and Recovery Benefit 500K.

“We are celebrating AIA’s 100 years and two years ago we promised to have Filipinos have better and healthier life. We are the country’s protection advocate.”

“We want to renew our commitment now that we are on our 72nd year in the Philippines. The vitality program changed the discussion to live better and healthier. Knowing your health, improving it, and rewarding the behavior to be in the Vitality program. This year we are strengthening about promoting protection, when we launched Critical Protect, we asked ourselves why these products are coming in. Having this is just going to give you peace of mind, it is key to live healthier. Even if you sleep you get points. AIA CRITICAL PROTECT is now being launched so you can get 100% out of life.”

Will Dasovich says “I went through a lot, with Stage 3 colon cancer and in 6 months of chemotherapy and surgery, I learned a lot. I think the emphasis goes to the what our purpose is, how do we all make a difference in this world? Mine is entertainment, influencing someone to be happy, so many things in life, to continue living even if I was diagnosed. It was the hardest, but I knew in some way I was making a difference in someone else’s life. It made me happy to see people relate. When you’re confronted with that, you get support with the people you love. Now I spend so much time with my family, we get so caught up and forget to spend time with the people you love. Having that on a daily basis, it was nostalgic, we got to go on roadtrips again, have fun, made me value moments that much more with my family. For those battling something, take it one step at a time. The pain might beat you down but regardless, mentally and emotionally be stable and try to understand what you can control. If you do that then you will be content and happy.”

Raymond Gutierrez says “For me the best tool is the Philam Vitality App. I am a go getter, I challenge myself but here it is easy to earn points so you get habits walking around, it is a pillar of being healthy. Even to sleep, you need 8-10 hours to have your mind rested. The new members will have Philam Vitality review, to know how you are ready for this. A nutrition assessment, vitality check for cheap, then you will know how you can get better. I was thinking about it but I always thought about it, I started late, but it has given me a new lease on life.”

They are celebrating with the AIA 100 Run on June 30 so you can be with Team Mond, Team Nico, Team Will and Team Solenn at the Mall of Asia Grounds. For details you may go to their social media channels, download the Philam Vitality App on the App Store or Google Play.

There’s so much more with HOOQ as the app makes you choose with a click of a button with Book Free, one month FREE festival until July 21. With some of the best indie and mainstream film makers, you would be able to watch it for the whole month starting tomorrow without the need to register on the platform. This was announced this evening during the FREE PLAY event at the Mac Power Center at Circuit Makati.

Hooq Free is an innovation as they add FREE content in short or long form on the app. This festival is only from June 21 to July 20 and it includes 1000+ movies in it. They want to eliminate too many steps, less privacy concerns too. It’s a taste of what HOOQ is only for this month. The Hooq FREE has short form contents, some originals, tons of content from the Philippines, other Asian countries and even Hollywood. There is a spotlight on some of your favorite movies, pick up and download the app if you’re up to it. They also have an original Margie Holmes show on the platform that would be very educational. Some movies will star your favorite actors and actresses and we saw them during the event live!

They took a lot of learnings from Filipino habits during the 4 years they have been here and they have a network of content creators to bring in content from recent movies, even those in the pipeline.

They are not completely free, just some, but it will give a glimpse of what they offer and if you do via 59 pesos a week, you’ll get even more. Not all are supported by ads even on FREE so you can get something to entertain you, air as is with parental controls of course on some of it because John Wick isn’t for everyone lol.


Dingdong Dantes Endorses MESA Filipino Moderne Restaurant

MESA has been our go to restaurant for modern Filipino dishes for a couple of years now. I particularly love their Tomas Morato branch which I frequent to when I have visiting friends and family. We also do press conferences and small events here plus it is very near my place so I have a bit of a personal affinity with it. Today is special because aside from celebrating the restaurant’s success, prime actor and kapuso leading man Dingdong Dantes will be the place’s face for all their branding needs.

Eric Dee says “This is a milestone for the MESA family, it prides me to look back at what we have achieved. Now we have 50 stores around the country, and this year we want to have 100. We need to accelerate this so we have one person in mind to have in our group, this is Dingdong Dantes.”

Dong says “There will be activities and it is in the plans, there will be a photoshoot soon so you’ll see my face in every item in Mesa. I want to reserve branch number 68 or perhaps a joint venture at the new Ayala Bay. We are looking to have a commercial on TV, perhaps social media and digital assets. We might do that soon and I’m excited! Marian goes to a nearby branch and studies the menu, cooks it at home and perhaps she’ll have her dishes on the menu.”

He adds “We all strive to be our best, this brand has the same core values. My favorite is the Baby Squid in Olive Oil. It caters to Filipino families, in an enhanced styling way. Filipinos who live abroad, our OFW’s would find it still homey. This is one brand where the owners are very hands on, there’s love put into it and it represents something I believe in. We want it authentic, with a little creativity and that’s MESA. I will not disappoint you, I want to be with you also to go to 100 stores soon!”

Present at the occasion was the Talent Manager Perry Lansigan, Raymond Federigan the Director of National Operations for Foodee Global Concepts, Eric Dee their Chief Operating Officer and Rikki Dee their Chief Executive Officer.

Currently, they have this Mesa Filipino Moderne, FoodLink, Sunnies Cafe, Flatterie, Food, Hawker Chan, Kam’s Roast, Llao Llao, Pound by Todd English, The Food Hall, Tim Ho Wan, Tsuta Japanes Noodles, and co created Bench Cafe (of the Bench and Suyen Group), Cerveseria, Food District on the 5th, Kai, Maisen, Mangan and more soon.

If you love Dingdong Dantes and believe in all the brands he endorses, this would impress you the most. Food is good, very comforting and not too pricey. It is mid ranged, but worth it!


Animal Welfare and Love with Saving Flora

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

I believe in the goodness of the human spirit, that goes with how God had made man the caretaker of every living thing in this world. We don’t think about it seriously until species fall on near extinction, when it is too late. How can we not feel urgency? How can some people be cruel right?

There’s this film we watched this morning called SAVING FLORA. It’s about a girl who tries to save a circus elephant who was supposed to be euthanized because she couldn’t perform tricks anymore. The girl was the owner’s daughter. She took the elephant and tried to go through a thick forest, a raging river and tried to outwit two evil elephant hunters. It’s mostly a family drama, one which can teach your kids to love and care for animals and I’d suggest you do take them along so they could learn from it.

Guests during the block screening included volunteers from PAWS, so I guess that just legitimizes these all. It stars Jenna Ortega, David Arquette, Tom Arnold and Leonor Vareta. Loved the story and how it was made. I also love how it kinda hurts a bit, showing animal cruelty is real and very evident. Things should change. This film is released locally by WOMY FILM PRODUCTION, produced by Synkronized and directed by Mark Taylor.

Come treat your kids to a wonderful story.

Culion: A Beautiful Story

Monday, June 17, 2019

La Immaculada Concepcion Church in Culion

I stared blankly through the horizon as our boat approached the island. It was around noon, a bit hungry from the short flight to Manila-Busuanga, then a van from Busuanga to Coron, plus a boat ride to this quaint old town. I was trying to figure out if this place is what I remember; reading in books, several online articles - of the island named Culion. 

From afar, I could see the church on top of a rock and on the other side a huge sign that says CULION on it. I immediately slapped my huge airstrip like forehead and felt like doh', this is it, this is the island I've read about!

Garlic Chicken

Pork Sisig

Pinakbet with pink hues, their Bagoong Alamang is different

At the Port, we climbed a flight of stairs of a government building rented out for a local restaurant. I remember the feeling of being awestrucked as I turned my head into the window; a gust of wind whiffed on my face while I witnessed the beautiful surrounding blue waters and well forested nearby islands in Culion. I asked myself a couple of times how this beautiful place seem to have less tourists when it just felt wonderful to be there. I sat down and figured I better take care of my hunger first and deal with the answers later. 

Food was cheap, everyone was in a flurry to have us feel comfortable especially Michelle our guide and Team MSB who was with us to experience Culion. They're in to experience the island before they start to shoot the movie with the same name, we said our pleasantries and headed off to Hotel Maya. The only hotel in Culion.

With our luggages in tow, we walked towards the tricycle terminal and as soon as we set foot outside the port, a man jumped out and greeted us with flair, in the public PA system and got amused of his antics. Felt like fish in an aquarium for a few minutes, then we sped off through a few barangays and reached the place in just a few strides.

Our window view, late sunset. We were on top of a cliff and you could see a small port below. Teens and kids were freely bathing there.

We climbed a few steps, walked a few meters and sitting at the back of the church was a two level bungalow with several rooms. Hotel Maya used to be an orphanage and school for females (Hijas de Maria Dormitory) who didn't have any place to go. They were taken cared of by Sisters of St. Paul of Charters who still had an office in the side of the lot, but the hotel is managed and operated by the same people behind Loyola College of Culion. An institution founded by Jesuits who also served the community. To get a feel of the place, we went to The Culion Museum and Archives to get to know Culion's rich history. If you are visiting the island for the first time, I suggest you do this particular tour in order to get a grasp of it. There is a small fee but really negligible. They also have a very clear, detailed view of the hospital and community operations with the real machines and instruments in it. They also have their own money displayed so you would understand further how they achieved medical success over the years.

If you didn't know, Culion WAS a colony for persons afflicted with Hansen's Disease (commonly known as Leprosy), but have been completely rid of it in 2006. The condition is curable via WHO MDT (Multidrug Therapy) and has been done successfully over decades. It is NOT very contagious, nor is it spread through pregnancy or intimacy. Calling persons afflicted with Hansen's disease with the L word is deemed outright offensive so you should NEVER call them that. This also goes the same with the term "patients" as they're not afflicted with it anymore, they prefer residents just like you and me. 

It totally makes sense. I kept that in my mind while asking questions all throughout the day, I learned this by talking to them directly, their hospital personnel, even the Medical Center Chief who affirmed this. More than the condition, I feel it is the SOCIAL STIGMA that we ought to worry about. If you are reading this from where you are, take a mental note of it and tell your friends, your family, Culion is completely safe and I got to talk to them the next day.

Check out this video I made of our tour!

Imelda Cortez Ganega (66)

Josephina Villarico Pascual (86), Maxencia Gonzales Roldan (77)

Constancio Alinsog (90)

Ms. Imelda used to live and study in the Hijas de Maria Dormitory. She was excited to tell us how they used to live their daily lives in segregation, like she was one of the boys in the island. Ms. Maxencia  also got to tell us about her current involvement in NGO's aimed to help and uplift the lives of people afflicted with Hansen's disease. They want to also bring their plight to the forefront and not do with the social stigma we mentioned earlier. I could see their excitement when they were informed that a film about Culion in the 1940's will be told on screen with no less than master writer Ricky Lee on the helm. Ms. Josephina on the other hand lives in solitude but completely happy with her dog. Mr. Constancio on the other hand told us about his 13 kids and a lovelife that spanned years before he and his wife met again (as this was during the war). Here's the interview on video!

Now that you've gotten schooled about the facts, I should tell you about these folks. Behind these interviews are a whole throng of family who also live with them. In spite of their isolation in the past, I was mostly touched at how they have no thinking of being trapped, some of them have had the opportunity to actually be with family outside or live a life elsewhere but ended up coming back because they find one thing, it was PEACE. 

They are fearless, no different than you and me, the only constant is our ability to treat them as equals and tell our brethren, to have them understand and tell their own because in this day and age, there should be no room for that stigma. They don't ask for anything special, but the same treatment, as Filipinos, as humanly possible.

This stairway had witnessed so many occasions. Almost all portraits, historical figures and photos were taken in this same spot and we had to do something inspired by Vanity Fair, of course!

The film will be featuring different spots in the island that have been part of their day to day lives. The community thrived even during the time of segregation, in a way they went all become very productive individuals and lived off the land. Marriage, romance, love, it all happened in one way or another. There are public baths, communal bathrooms, a little different from the usual but they ended quite fine despite the circumstances. That for me just paints a beautiful picture, of triumph, perseverance, of humanity. So aside from the majestic views, historical landmarks and clear waters, it's the people that makes this place so special.

It was just the first day and I was already learning a lot. Imagine the beach, the water, the sun, the sea and the people, the Culion story in one place. I was just blown away!


Sinigang Ribs

Chop Suey

Crabs, Crabs and more Crabs!

We went back to the hotel and had dinner. True enough, we had our eyes googly over fresh seafood, scrumptious home cooking. You have all the goodness and quality of cuisine from any place in the Philippines, but you really can't buy the ambiance that comes with it. We slept soundly later, with the howling winds putting us to sleep. We wore our smiles thinking we'll be seeing more of Culion and it's people the next day. We got word we'll be seeing the Mayor, and woke up excited at the steps of the island's Municipal Hall.

After a quick breakfast in the hotel (Garlicky ChixSiLog), we rode tricycles to the Municipal Hall. It housed government, the courts and public offices.

Hon. Virginia De Vera, lady Mayor of Culion

We met a very humble Mayor who felt it was just the total trust they have with the producers of this movie that made them say yes to it.  They will help them whatever way they can and acknowledges this will really boost tourism in the island. Albeit being a third class municipality, they are working hard to finish projects in the island. Although it takes years to build roads, ports, structures that could service the incoming visitors, they are very positive this will bring change to the out look, of what people now think of Culion.

Pulang Lupa, look out for this tree and landscape that will connect Ricky Lee's masterpiece to the upcoming film Culion

Culion Public Cemetery

The Culion marker on top of the mountain which can be seen from afar

Here's our interview with the proud Mayor of Culion.

It's been a long time seeing changed lives and medical wonders in Culion. The landscape has changed but they properly rebuilt structures and made the Culion Sanitarium and Medical Hospital one of the most advanced institutions in Palawan. Nearby cities even go to them because of it and the structure remains sound despite the length of time it has been built. I was at awe how they maintained this (see first video above). It takes a strong man to run things and this falls on the hands of Dr. Cunanan. Here's our interview with him.

I left the island a changed man. I felt my fears were unfounded and this is probably the same with most of the population which have fears with olden outdated information languished by more documentaries which only brought fear because it's different and physically manifested. 

Dr. Jose Rodriguez spent almost half a century to help in Culion. He is also the Great Grandpa of blogger Mica Rodriguez, proudly told me about him years ago (for then a movie script she worked on)

Residents have been cured, not all of them have been afflicted, nor is it passed on, so don't let your fears be the reason not to discover a beautiful place and not experience such heartfelt, colorful, warm people. Culion is definitely part of the next frontier and they are starting to embrace you, to come and visit the place they call home.

This experience was designed for us to know why they'll be making a film about Culion. I know the reason why, it's the people. If you experience that, and felt what I felt while talking to them, you'll be glad you did. Now I can't wait to see this upcoming Ricky Lee masterpiece which will be under the direction of Alvin Yapan and produced by Shandii Bacolod and iOptions Ventures Corporation. The film will star Ms. Iza Calzado, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Meryll Soriano, Joem Bascon and an ensemble cast. I'll tell you about it soon!

In the meantime, I hope you now consider planning your next vacation in Culion to see its gentle people. I fell in love with Culion, you will too!
