4 New Regal Babies: David Licauco, Chanel Morales, Danes Lee and Jerico Ejercito

Sunday, July 31, 2016




I was able to cover the launch of the Regal Babies last 2015 and yesterday, I was a little surprised they're adding 4 more artists to the roster. Mother Lily certainly has never let down in discovering new talents and the ones I saw looked very promising. We had a small chat with them and got them all on video but before that let me introduce you to the new Regal Babies!



David Licauco is a professional model. He's been featured in various magazines and has been able to capture the hearts of ladies young and old. He's got a body of a demigod and those charming chinky eyes that would make your knees weak, how can you not love this boy? Aside from that, he's a title holder. He placed 1st Runner Up in Mr. Chinatown 2014, a sure fire reason to adore him even more. He's also raring to do drama or action movies, also very straight forward on the way he talks which is something I find really refreshing for those who usually filter their answers on interviews. Aside from that, he's very well educated. He just finished his course recently and he's very proud of his accomplishments. You'll love how he looks in person, and if you get to watch him on screen. I bet, he's going to be loved by a lot of ladies. 



Chanel Morales is no stranger to show business as she's been one of the prettiest in TV5's stable for quite some time now. She's been released recently and this comes as an opportune time to spread her wings as an actress. I think I still get the gist of people looking at her to be an "expensive" kind of lady, as she is classy whilst her looks fit the role. Although when I got the chance to get to know her personally, she's actually a cowgirl, really nice and approachable. She's done countless shows in the former network and after signing up with Regal, she wants to do more romantic, drama and even horror flicks. I like her personality, quite bubbly. If she's done a remarkable job in previous shows, I'm sure she's bound to do good with more projects now that she's with the legendary film outfit. It was a pleasure talking to you dear!



Danes Lee (as Danielle Lee is fondly called) is formerly also from the Kapatid Network. She's done several shows and is very pleasing to the eyes. She's very confident, I like the way she carries herself. She's also the sister of Divine Lee, whom she says will cater more of hosting gigs while she's going to concentrate more on acting. She's quite beautiful and I could see her into more sexy comedy flicks or perhaps drama, she's up to anything. She also wants to become a beauty queen and follow the footsteps of Pia Wurtzbach or Megan Young, I could see her doing that too.



 Jerico Ejercito also hails from the said clan. He's the grand son of former Laguna Governor Jeorge ER Estregan Ejercito and definitely picks up after their looks. I was surprised how very matured he thinks whilst telling us about his passion in acting. He's also a champion body builder hence the sculptured physique. You could tell he's a very intelligent lad by the way he talks, he also graduated Political Science in De La Salle University. He also learned a thing or two from growing up with showbiz family members and is eager to learn from the best actors in the industry. He's keen to do more action films in the future and very hungry to do challenging roles where he could further learn the ropes in the showbiz industry as he believes he's got to do the legwork and not just rely on his family connections. A noble guy with good looks and that body? Now ladies, don't you want to take him home to Mom and get married? LOL

Mother Lily remarks "I'm very excited! My Regal Babies have consistently turned out to be box office superstars and I'm sure these 4 are no exception. I see a very bright future for David, Chanel, Danes and Jerico.

The new Regal Babies are also managed by renowned Talent Manager Arnold Vegafria of ALV Talent Circuit. Regal Films' Roselle Monteverde exclaims "We trust Arnold's sharp eye in discovering talents. He's got a long roster of stars under his belt and his credibility is unquestionable. We're happy that we got to work with him and his talents for future projects that will be made for this generation." Now that sounds so re-assuring! 

Here's our interview with David Licauco, Chanel Morales, Danes Lee and Jerico Ejercito. Enjoy!  





Here are some shots from the contract signing yesterday!











Thank you to Regal Films, Sir Tinnie, Sir Arnold Vegafria of ALV Talent Circuit for having us in your event! Can't wait to see them all on the silver screen soon!

Lipton Gets Real Iced Tea in a Bottle!

Saturday, July 30, 2016



I've had this brand in our pantry for ages as much of the people at home are heavy tea drinkers. We also get a little festive at home, even more when there are guests of friends and family so we do get Liptom Iced Tea served in so many ways. It makes conversation fun, sweetens up things and keeps us hydrated. It gives that positive vibe no matter what time of the day!


The good news is, Lipton is evolving. They want their products to fit a new generation of tea drinkers as they up the antรจ with taste and the benefits you get from having real tea. The drink also has low calorie content so you don't have to worry doing other things all throughout the day because it's light and easy. The Green Tea variant was a favorite at home, with that light lemon flavor, you get the lovely refreshing feeling in each gulp because you know it goes good in any situation. The Red Tea on the other hand has that lovely deeper tea flavor but with a hint of orange, making it sweet but a little tangy. The classic Lemon Iced Tea on the other hand still satisfies me. Sitting on the top floor balcony, letting the sun shine while you watch the sun set on the horizon. Ending the day with a sweet note, dreamy, but imagine all the possibilities!


Lipton pushes you for positive change. Take it easy, take it one day at a time. Make yourself enjoy the moment and see how you, your friends, and family could make every day a #LiptonPositiviTEA day! I'll go ahead and share these bottles to the most precious people at home, so go buy one in your favorite convenience stores, groceries, supermarket and be a good man or woman by bringing positivity to friends and family everyday!

New Sennheiser Devices Takes Audio Quality Seriously



I visited the Egghead Audiohub through the invitation of Sennheiser folks a couple of days ago. I've been a fan of their products especially the microphones, but had little knowledge about their other audio products. Turns out they have a whole line of headphones and their flagship products have been released recently and we got to try them out recently. I imagined it to be some unfathomable high tech devices but the two kind gentlemen from Singapore put it in plain words for me and a couple of bloggers I was with that afternoon. I'm not much of an audio expert, but since I have background in Engineering I know the concepts of  audio and acoustics. These are the same technologies they use for features of the headphones particularly the noise cancellation so you can take care of those in the background. I learned a lot in one hour, but I bet you guys should be in it too.


This is the Momentum wireless headphone. It comes in Over Ear and On Ear models and are quite comfy. As for aesthetics, they do present their designs as very modern in terms of technology but is still reminiscent of what was happening in the 70's. Yes, you'll get that classic look but you won't be shortchanged on technology. These headphones both have 90% noise cancellation technology. It's so remarkable to compare them with the other while we were there at the Egghead Audiohub because you can literally try them on first before purchasing it.



I actually like the On Ear version most because my ears are kinda out there - and this basically makes my face look smaller as it gets pressed or tucked in gently. I swear I could wear this for hours and not get tired while listening to my favorite music. I could picture myself in my man cave and have this for pleasure, a thing that countless men would do in their spare time.




These are the HD 650 (left) and the HD 630VB (right). It's quite different for a reason because the left one is designed Open which means you can get the air travel freely on the headphones. You'll get that open air concert venue quality which is quite lovely especially for those who love voice/crooner type of music, plus the comfort wearing it because air flows in and out. The other Closed type headphone on the right is quite fancy, it's got dials on the headphone's sides so you can play with bass levels. It's also got a manual switch for iPhone or Android remotes so you can control it. You're also assured of quality as it is made in Ireland, standards are a little better there!



These are the HD 800 and HD 800S. It's available in Silver, Matte black finish. The headphone's "absorber" technology makes smoother sound even more easier to listen to - so you can use it for longer times. This would be great for unplugged music and make you feel that you are there in a concert, or studio. It costs roughly around Php 66,990 and Php 92,990 and is made from Germany. A lot of concert artists and professional musicians use it, and it sounds absolutely phenomenal I'd want one for myself.

This one is the Amplifier HDVD 800, it costs around Php 115,990. I was quite interested about this because of the cable that they're using with it. As with any sound equipment, I know that cables matter. Their Balanced Cable actually improves sound and it comes with the headphone already. For the quality it gives, I'm sure this specialized connections have played a role on how sound would turn out on the device. Remember, each wire has resistance, when you run current through it makes or break the acoustics and engineering has played a huge role in getting that perfect sound to come off of it.


Thank you so much to Egghead Audiohub and these young fine gentlemen from Sennheiser who accommodated us inside the store. You should come and visit as they have these new Sennheiser models on display which you can try out even before you purchase it. They've got a studio at the back too so don't be afraid to ask if you want to experience world class audio in one place. Egghead Audiohub is at the Shangrila Mall's East Wing, at the 5th floor left side if you're facing the main entrance. They are open mall hours so go ahead and take a look!

VOTE Team Boys as GMA Artists Promote Heart Over Hate

Friday, July 29, 2016




It's only a few hours to go, but may I ask you to support our cause?

You see, some people have this undoubtedly crazy notion that they can actually hide behind keyboards and bash people. This has really got to stop. I'm okay with constructive criticism but if it's already hurting the person, that's not right. 




I'm blessed to have been able to work with GMA Artist Center's Martin Del Rosario, Phytos Ramirez, Ken Chan and Derrick Monasterio. Our campaign sounds off what we want to happen in cyberspace, to be safe, to remain positive, so we're choosing Heart over Hate. 

You can start helping by making your friends and family know that it's not okay to say hurtful words online. You can start with your own circle and tell them to do the same to other people so they can pay it forward. Be nice, be responsible online and hope our little work would be something you'll love while you're doing this deed.

As a treat, here's a small something I prepared during our shoot. Hope you get to also vote for TEAM BOYS over at www.gmanetwork.com/BSCVOTE now til 12 AM!

Goodyear Unleashes Wrangler Triple Max

Thursday, July 28, 2016



Spent the evening at Goodyear Wrangler Triple Max Launch over at Green Sun in Makati. I saw Goodyear APAC, Asia and Philippine executives discussing how important the Philippine market is for their brand. A roadtrip has that unique ability to make the family, the community close and Goodyear has been a good part of Filipino motorists. They are gearing towards making it more affordable, but not discount quality which they have done through the years. Now, they're making that roadtrip even more special by launching the Goodyear Wrangler Triple Max!



Goodyear executives have announced how they carefully made this tire withstand the elements in a tropical country like ours. They know we have special needs. For superior breaking performance, improved wet weather driving control, road hazard resistant, they made the Wrangle Triple Max with innovations that also came from their technologists and consumers like us. They asked, and they know thay the mid sized SUV is a special segment and it is what families need in places like these. It is dependable, sage and has that Hydro Grip Technology so you get superior brake performance, so you eventually would worry less and just enjoy driving.  


That peace of mind is insurmountable and can only be given to you through quality products. The ASEAN and the Philippines is growing and purchase of cars will happen even more in the next few years. They have seen growth already and it might not stop in the next few years. The cavity design, tread compound and architecture of materials, you can depend on Wrangler Triple Max just like its predecessors because they know why safety is your number one concern when you drive with your family.

Aqua Adventures with Encantadia's Alena: Gabbi Garcia



A fun day with one of Encantadia's Sanggre sounds like a nice idea. This time, we're heading to Manila Bay to be with half of the GabRu love team, Gabbi Garcia. She's one of the nicest gals I've ever come across with and she's very down to earth. Now that she's part of Encantadia, she's so excited to play the role of Alena of whom was formerly played by Karylle Tatlonghari. She auditioned for this role and tried out other things, but she was so eager to get to play this particular Sanggre from day 1 and when she got it, she says it was like destiny.



They're currently fighting in the ratings game and even though they have a behemoth program to beat, they still fared quite good in Luzon wide ratings. This is something she was realy thankful for because fans of the show are surely still watching it. We started to talk to her but we needed to make this day a little more adventurous, we ended up doing something that represents her element, in the water, playing with fishes and all!



Here's our fun interview with Gabbi Garcia!





Thank you so much GMA Artist Center for having us!

Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo for How To Be Yours



Now at the blogcon for How To Be Yours, the current film starring Gerald Anderson, Bea Alonzo, and is produced by Star Cinema. This is Directed by Dan Villegas and we started by asking them about attempts of piracy in Facebook. 




Gerald is grateful about getting this project because he had films that had stellar reviews that didn't fare well in the market but had a few that didn't do well with reviews but was good in the box office, this time they had both. He also said there were a couple of scenes that didn't make the cut, and he was surprised about how everything was put together. Gerald added "The Love scenes, Bea was stunning, and it was absolutely magical."

"I was okay, I was comfortable, I was nervous but it felt like another scene, but it looked so nice on screen. It was awkward at first, but when I dissected it, I had to be in his arms, I had to come to terms that we're a couple and that was the highlight of the film. If you were there, you will remeber the pain, but when it's already put together you just have to trust the cinematographer because when we saw it, it all made sense!" says Bea.

Gerald interjects "Yes there was a conscious effort to make her feel that it was easy. With any leading lady I wanted to let her know that I'd be there to support her. It was filial love so we wanted to enjoy the moment and it had to show on screen." 

It's showing on theaters now! Go watch it!
