Piolo Pascual and Sarah Geronimo for The Breakup Playlist

Tuesday, June 30, 2015




We're at the blog conference of The Breakup Playlist today, the film which stars Sarah Geronimo and Piolo Pascual. They are also banking on not just the two artist's fan base but the premise of how to be in a situation where you love, break up and still having that hope of forever. The musicians also had a journey, they compete, some fall, insecurities, flaws and how to humble yourself despite of conflicts in your personal life. Trixie, who is Sarah's character asks herself if she will give the person a second chance. Does she miss him? Is he willing to love her and forget everything that's painful in the past? Are they ready to move on?



Writer Tonette Jadaone and Direk Dan Villegas were also there so we could get the gist of the story. Direk was a fan of the music and hearing the artists that are going to be in the movie was but a dream come true. It was hard for Sarah, she always told the Director that the character was very complicated. Piolo said "I've waited very long, and the opportunity presented itself when Sarah was working with Lloydie, so we had to wait for a while before we did this. The script was so good and since Sarah was in my bucket list, I never hesitated to do this with her. It talks about love and relationships, and everybody can relate to it. The soundtrack is equally heartbreaking, "Patawarin" had me cry around 5 times during the recording and I almost couldn't finish it since we acted out everything before that. We had a lot of scenes that we had to sing live during the shoot, so that's what you should look forward to. We didn't find any disparity as far as our age went during the filming, I hope it didn't come out that way at all when you see the movie even if I have gray hair in close ups."



He adds "For me, whenever I think of the past I always think of the good times and I really think about the reasons why we should break up. I often just divert my attention by drowning myself in work, I also use them for motivation. Depression also makes use of friends, a support group that's always there to make you sane. As for my breakup playlist, I would probably just like anything what's on top of the charts at that time like Ed Sheeran etc. I also told Iñigo to experience stuff, have a girlfriend, get hurt, move on because he's a guy, he can take it. It was awesome to work with real musicians too but we didn't get to talk about making music at all because we were crunched for time, maybe soon."



Ms. Tonette says "It was a joy doing this movie, Piolo even gave us Lechon during the shoot and you know he's the same old person we saw in the beginning. He never changed and didn't have any feeling that's he's too high. He's the good guy, a humble one."

The Breakup Playlist will show on July 1, 2015. The premier night will be today so make sure you take your friends that have issues on movie houses soon! Haha!

Zsazsa Padilla Returns in the Concert Scene Plus a New Album Called Beginnings




We're at Victorino's in 11th Jamboree in Quezon City for the album launch of the Divine Diva Ms. Zsazsa Padilla. This one's called BEGINNINGS under Polyeast Records and she's also doing some performances in Resort's World this July 31, 2015. 




Ms. Zsazsa says "It was inspired by the movie called Begin Again, and I figured it was the right song now that I'm going to do concerts again. I picked the songs personally, I'm used to doing live belting songs and this one's more intimate that I almost whispered while recording. The sons here are a little old but I figured these are timeless classics and it's what people mostly want to hear from me. The last album was two years ago and I concentrated on soap operas as that mostly needed emotional energy and effort. This for me signals a new beginning, my husband is personally an inspiration for this album. I would say today I am very happy because you're all here. When we recorded this it felt like a movie scene because the songs are in that era where you'll remember things, and the youth appreciate those things too. I'm being offered a new teleserye and it's very exciting as the first few weeks will be shot in New York. My kids are all grown up, but I want them to eventually have their own place to live and be independent. Unchanging Love (2008) captured my transition from experiencing loss to opening a new chapter of life. There will be some songs from BeeGees, Chicago, Carpenters in my album that I hope everybody would equally love! I'd also like to work with my daughters because they're both good songwriters too. I hope that project comes true very soon. Thank you all for coming and the support, I adore all the artists but my album is out and we worked hard for it. We also have a 16 piece orchestra for the concert and you'll see it on the 31st of July as I'm back in the concert scene.




The album has 10 tracks and will all be containing Ms. Zsazsa's favorites from the 70's and 80's. You'll have a laid back, more relaxed songs which is now available in all major record bars, SpinnrPH, Deezer, iTunes and shops nationwide!

Thor: Soulful Concert at the Music Museum

Monday, June 29, 2015




I haven't really seen Thor perform live so when a short press conference happened a few days ago in Quezon City, I didn't know what to expect. I do see him in different shows here and there, and I must say, he's got his RnB and soul repertoire all taken cared of. It's like second nature to him and people were wondering why he didn't do any solo concerts of sort when in fact, he could actually do it quite easy. His stint from The Voice Philippines might not have been too completely successful but he has been able to get the attention of music producers and a multitude of people, his fans. He's no stranger in this industry because he's involved in voice coaching greats such as Pop Princess Sarah Geronimo, Siren Angeline Quinto, Asian Christian Bautista among others. You can say, he's been ready a long time ago and this time, he's doing everything he can to make it a reality with "Thor: Soulful Concert" slated this July 17, 2015 at the Music Museum. Here's an excerpt of his interview.




During the same event, Thor admits that he's a little nervous and said that it'll probably never go away with performers. He promises though that his fans would feel that this concert will be worth every cent and their time since he's prepared a few numbers that would surprise even those that regularly watch his show. He also added that people will be seeing something totally different in his comeback including whistling like Mariah Carey would you believe? He's preparing for this and says he'll never stop honing his craft because this is something that he loves to do. Even if he wasn't able to make waves with his independently produced album, he'll be grabbing this opportunity like a second wind and hopes the public would be able to give him the chance to make it big in this industry. He deserves it, he works hard and he's seriously going to make you love his kind of music. Oh and by the way, you'll also see KZ Tandingan, Liezl Garcia plus tons of surprise guests during the show.




For tickets of his concert, please call their production at (+63 2) 523 3003, (+63 2) 703 5209 or +63917 773 1013. You can also get it at the Music Museum office (+63 2) 721 0635 or (+63 2) 721 6726. Good luck on the show Thor! Break a leg! I genuinely hope you get to prove that title Master of Soul fits you!

Edward Mendez and Marvelous Alejo for Wattpad Presents: Said I Loved You


It's going to be an intriguing, semi-sexy but romantic episode this week at TV5's highest rating show as Edward Mendez and Marvelous Alejo star in Wattpad Presents: Said I Loved You. The story revolves around young childhood friends turned May-December affair relationship. It was a weird transition between these two and Edward's character didn't know how to become just a friend to Marvelous or become something else. People would just squirm just thinking about it. Eventually Edward had a girlfriend and Marvelous' character became the girl scorned. Add to that, when Edward's character who initially thought that it was nothing, suddenly felt something for her. Now, it's going to be a lot dangerous for both of them.

Marvelous says "I'm so flattered to be with the guy fantasized by guys, gays, girls and everybody else. Edward is so humble, very reserved at times. He's very cute when he smiles and very easy to get along with. I am very happy that this was given to me. This is my second Wattpad project and my first one was very successful when I was paired with a much younger guy. From being paired with teens to someone in Edward's age bracket, it's a little shocking and I had to made adjustments. Shocking because we also had to do a legit kissing scene and I was very nervous that I had to do that. Nervous level 10! I was asking him to help me and thinking what the public would actually think about me, about the person I'm kissing because he's not my usual partner too... that's what was on my mind the whole time. But then, it really went okay for my first legit screen kiss. Our director's energy is on level 11 out of 10, so it's a very fun shoot. He made us a little easy. I do have older guys as crushes, I like matured guys too. I said no at first with the kissing scene but when I texted management about it, they decided I go on with it and show a different Marvelous this time. It was only a smack and not that much of a french kiss, it was just light. I'm open to a little age gap, I think it's normal. A lot of girls can probably relate to me because they would want a man who can already understand them, and think maturely. In terms of problems, they decide better and I like that. His body looks really good, I saw it and I haven't really seen anything like that before. I didn't know what to do since this is my first screen kiss, I had a boyfriend but he's gone. This is different, you do it for love and you do it for work. (then I asked if she would fall in love with someone like Edward, she said) Yes..."

Edward on the other hand says "Working with Marvelous was fun, in the beginning she really was into the character. She was so nice, she was sweet, and she randomly cracks jokes whether off or on cam. Our director was fun and we were at ease, just seeing him made us a little jumpy even if we're already a little tired from taping the whole day. As for being gone for a little while, after the movie with Aiai I released my own fitness book and that became a best seller. It's a fitness book available in National Bookstore and released all throughout the country. This was actually my dream ever since I was a kid so I just fulfilled it. It's called "Your Dream Body Come True" which talks about exercise and healthy eating. I had a Wattpad episode last year with Ritz Azul, the kissing scene there was a little cheated but this one's sagad (then everyone laughed!). I didn't do any preparations, it was just a fun thing, a full kiss. It was a marvelous kiss and we had a few takes doing that scene. I'm thankful and I had a great time with people from this station because even if you're tired you're having fun. It's worth it and a privilege, as the stories are great and there are real people following it. With Marvelous, the age difference is little but Ritz and Marvelous played different age groups, Marvs is younger and Ritz played an older woman. I also had to be wholesome and the other was a bit physical. When we kissed, I think it was more lively this time because we didn't hesitate that much. In real life, I'm a real sucker for singers and Marvelous sang a few songs for me while we worked together and that was fun. (then Marvs sang Para Sa Akin beautifully at this point and had a few people stop what they were doing because of that)"

He adds "I didn't want to do this in the beginning, I just had common friends with my manager and found me there, I auditioned and this happened. I grew up in the US and I did Pinay Pie with Brad Turvey and Aiai. I finished Sports Science in Maryland so that's what I wrote my book successfully. I am an endorser for the Belo group since I was 18 and now I'm working with Sexy Solutions and I think that's why my forte is fitness. Acting wise, I'm enjoying it. I hope to get more projects this year. Hopefully after Wattpad I'd get to do a lot more with other offers. I'm really ready to take this on. I handle it pretty well and I think intrigue is part of the game. You can't do anything about it and explain everything to them. That happens, at the end of the day I know my self and I was raised by a good family and it doesn't disturb me. I'm having a good time and I'm enjoying it! I love this craft. As for topless scenes I guess it's a bit more wholesome and it's like a few minutes. There will be scenes, but it's going to be quick and funny, people should watch out for that. If I had to choose, I'd like someone younger because they're more fresh, 7 to 10 years is not bad. I would be glad to impart wisdom. I did modelling thing 10 years ago, I didn't see to do it for a long time, I did fashion shows, I was invited for Cosmo again but I think I had my fun with it. I'm ready to take on more projects and challenging roles. This is a good place to hone my skills and learn. I'm grateful that this was given to me, I was never really picky but the one I like is the one with Ritz Azul since it was a little 007, a little hero role but something wearing formal suits in a funeral parlor last year. Can't wait for this to show next week!"

Wattpad Presents Said I Loved You

Wattpad Presents: Said I Loved You will be on TV5 weekdays at 9PM. Make sure you don't miss a day of it and watch it with thousands who have loved watching the show since the very beginning. You'll learn things in the process too. To Marvs and Edward, good luck with the show! :)

PLDT, Smart and Heather Morris for IFLIX

Sunday, June 28, 2015


Meeting Heather Morris


Do you watch Glee? Or are you a Gleek? Well you can say I'm a regular person who watches this show for seasons now. I like the story, I like the music and I like the characters. Now I've seen some of the characters go to the Philippines a few years back, but I didn't know one of the pioneers of the show would eventually come to the Philippines and be a part of IFLIX, the video on demand streaming service provider. Before the event, there was a meet and greet part and we were lucky to have been able to be one of the lucky few to see Heather Morris in the flesh! I was nervous, nervous and happy at the same time!

I love her! Seeing her was surreal. I got a little star struck and we were a little crunched for time during the interview so I think the only thing that made sense was my first one in this video. My apologies for the lighting as there was only one working in the side and it was a little dark there. Anyway that was an unbelievable experience, thanks PLDT, Smart and IFLIX for the experience!


Entertainment Everywhere!



Defining a brand like Smart is of course much like how they made their promise, it's how to live a Smart life! It's about their innovations where you get it anytime anywhere so YOU could live more. It's something that would have to delight your passion, like for people who would like to have better access to content like movies and TV shows, much like their call today of Entertainment Everywhere!

PLDT is connecting your home, Smart on the other hand could handle connections outside of it, this is a synergy to get you connected wherever you go so you could get that same Smart life. This is great value because you can get the content that you want, making meaningful creations available to the Filipino public in a very affordable package. As I said in my previous posts, PLDT, Smart and Sun subscribers can get iflix app access for 99 pesos per month. Now imagine watching awesome movies, TV shows from US, Asia and elsewhere where iflix is present. Each account can also get you 5 devices running separately. You can also manage content for each device so if kids are watching, you can take care of that with a few clicks.

People know how to use these innovations, but if it's not affordable then its useless. Aside from that, Full HD streams might not be the best idea yet because most often than not some connections won't be able to quite handle it. This iflix trial that I've been on in the past few days made me realize how convenient it is to stream everywhere I go, like the hotels, events that I cover in a single day. The huge library of movies and TV shows that they have in iflix is hosted in the Philippines. There are also Entertainment bundles if you want to get everything entertainment based plus the basics for 50 pesos in 3 days or 299 for 30 days. You could check out http://smart.com.ph/pages/smartlife for more details.

PLDT Home also could hook you up with PLDT Fam Cam so you could get one installed in your home for a very low price. You just have to apply for it through PLDT. You don't need complicated wiring too because it runs on wifi so please remember don't break your walls for that okay? Tons of celebrities and people from the industry during the event knew how innovations could make our lives easier and manage it with just a few steps. Everything's online these anyway and these are the most convenient services today! That's just a few of the solutions that they have in their arsenal, and I can't wait to see more soon!
