Xmas boo boo: Christine Reyes

When asked why should we celebrate Christmas this year after a string of disasters, Kapamilya star Christine Reyes answered:
 "because it's the day out Father was born. We should give thanks."
Now, I do not know if the Honesto star, Christine Reyes is a Christian or not (but I am guessing that she is as she agreed to answer the said question), but is she serious? Christmas day is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ our saviour. Although there have been debates on whether this is the true date or not, December 25 has long been considered as the birthday of Jesus. As for our omnipotent Father, which Reyes claims as the one who had been born, he was conceived even before time began.
Has Reyes long been celebrating the Yuletide season not knowing the real reason why? Tsk tsk.
Honestly, Christine should have listened to Religion class and brush up more on her Catechism. Please read the Bible between takes, Christine. Am sure the book of Genesis will be a good start.

On Nikki Gil being a prude

Almost everyone was shocked to find out that real life celebrity couple, Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford broke up after five years of being together.
Crawford admitted that it was all his fault. Then, after months of the announcement of their separation, Gil granted an exclusive interview to cosmopolitan, hinting that Crawford had cheated.
In the interview Gil shared that she was a virgin, and commented on people saying, "that I am a stuck up prude na naghoholy holyhan."
Netizens, in several showbiz sites, were quick to  react on Gil's statement  that Crawford "lalaki sya, may pangngayalangan". Saying that it might also have been Gil's fault , and may pagkukulong din sya. After all it takes to tango.
For me, I think the issue here is whether or not Gil was a virgin not. Neither is it about Crawford having needs to fulfill his sexual urges. The issue should be about who cheated, who lied.
Looking their issue from a bigger perspective, would the people react this way to Gil if she had had sexual relations? Crawford was lured (or came voluntarily) into another woman's arms. Is not that enough reason to break someone trust, therefore saying you are truly unworthy of that person.
According to Gil, Crawford had known about her promise of celibacy and had agreed to it. If Crawford did in fact love Gil couldn't he fight off his arousal? Was not the moments he spent with the Maria Mercedes star enough? Couldn't' Crawford comfort his little buddy with his hands.

No Other Woman and When the Love is Gone revivals of Pinoy Classics

 I haven't yet seen Viva Entertainment's newest outing, When the Love is Gone, but I just found a good trivia about the movie. Apparently it is a remake of the late director Danny Zialcita's classic film of love lost, gained and betrayed
Winner ang title ng original film: Nagalit ang Buwan sa Haba ng Gabi. O diba? Zialcits's film stars Gloria Diaz, Janice de Belen, Eddie Garcia, Dindo Fernando, and Laurice Guillen.

Click on the video, to see some scenes from the original, as well as from the new movie.

Talking about revival films, did you know that box-office hit No Other Woman is a revival as well. It is adapted from another Zialcita work, titled Langis at Tubig.

PI think it is good that Viva is doing this, reviving old classics. Pay tribute to these classics, especially now that the movie industry is leaning towards baduy(hahahha) comedy films.

TO ABS-CBN: Please learn your language

I heard it before, and  I heard it again. Each time the word comes out from one of the top TV's newscast my ears cringe.

Sincero, which I think means sincere.

Each time I hear it. Ack! This is a crime worth punishment, as it is murder, They are murdering the Filipino language. How many English words have they tried to tagalize? I understand that most of the news reports are on ad lib. Just like the time first time I heard it from Anthony Taberna on his morning show? But tonight, I do not anymore think that this is on ad lib. Henry Omaga Diaz was doing the evening newsbreak (on When a Man Falls in Love), and iIheard him say that stupefied word.   Can the ABS-CBN  News team not think of any other better word to replace this un-word? Say tapat.

Here are a few sugggestions from Google Translate

Another word that comes to mind is the Channel 2 brand name of Kapamilya.

Before when we say it is for my family, we state it as 'Para ito sa Pamilya ko', but then today: 'Para to sa Kapamilya ko.'

Well, this is great branding. But, do we want a family member to be associated with ABS?

You have to realize that the only way that the English speaking Pinoy toddlers learn Filipino from is through the media And when the media does not know how to speak Filipino properly, then what will become of our language? Shall it be butchered the same way we did to the alibata.  

I know that they say language evolves. But honestly, do we want the Filipino language to be a copycat of US English, but instead our words will end in -a or -o.

In the middle of Super Typhoon Yolanda, Corruption, and the Philippine Government

To PNoy, please instead of granting interviews to CNN to blame the LGUs, give thanks to the countries which have given their donations and admit that this 'apocalyptic' destruction caused by Super Typhoon Yolanda was unforeseen. The Philippines readied it self for a strong storm, like the storms that hit us. But the Philippines (like any other country) was not ready for this kind of devastation. As a report from the Los Angles Times did say: “Even Hurricane Katrina, the modern measure of nature’s disastrous force on the United States, pales when compared to the punch and expected devastation from Typhoon Haiyan.” Stop blaming people, but instead thank those who have helped us, ask for aid, and make sure that the relief does indeed reach the people in need.

I do agree with Anderson Cooper that it is because of the corruption, years of, decades of corruption that is why infrastructures in Tacloban are of that kind. Cooper mentioned in his report that infrastructures, like roads, are ruined and impassable as most of the money that has been set for the reconstruction and strengthening of  such went to the government's personal accounts. 

A government official tried to debunk Anderson's claim about the government. The government official said that the Philippines only has 3 (with only two in operations) C-130 aircrafts. Does the Department of Defense have any many to buy more of these aircrafts? How many years has the last one been purchased? Where did the budget for these go, in the government official pockets? Hay naku! Defensive on the accounts of theft and plunder. 

That it was why it is only on Day 5, when help from foreign countries started arriving, that the airport is being rid of debris. Only on Day 5! CNN also commented that the government is disorganized, which is true. Before Yolanda made landfall, I remember the DSWD saying that they have prepared relief goods. Nasan na? Stop blaming the impassable roads, but instead think of ways how help can reach the survivors. Try air dropping the goods. I hope that the officials still have pity in their hearts, more than the other officials form other nations. 

Shall we wait for the international media to condemn our system? After taking these harsh criticisms what then? The government does not even enhance nor enlarge its Relief and Disaster committees  and instead do what they have been doing the past years. Honestly, where will the Philippines be then? Our country has been used to typhoons, but when can we truly say that we are really ready for a typhoon this size, with zero casualties. I am not saying that this may be possible now, but I do hope that this will be possible soon. 

Shall we always rely on other countries (which I am very thankful for) to lend a helping hand?  With the money pouring in from the government budget, NGOs,and other countries, I hope that the government put some use to it. Hire survivors to help in handing out relief goods as well as to clear the streets. If ever there may be extra money, which I hope does not go directly to unworthy people's pockets, I hope that the government uses it in rebuiliding the hard hit areas. Award some financial aid to those who have lost their homes. Plan for a better Tacloban city. 

I do hope that the money sent by other countries for relief will be used to good use and none would be corrupted by the government officials.

Help the victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan)

Photo from:
Three weeks after a 7.2 earthquake shook Visayas (Central Philippines), particularly the Bohol and Cebu region. Another natural catastrophe hit Visayas once again. Super Typhoon Yolanda, with international name Haiyan, is one, if not the, strongest storm to make landfall in world history. (Hindi lang yang Philippines.) Yolanda, according to CNN weather, is stronger than Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy combined. As Yolanda Haiyan moves away from the Philippine Area of responsibility, we see the damage that this super typhoon has caused.  Lines of communication, electricity are down. Tacloban, Ormoc seems to be the hardest hit. (I have a friend whose family is in Tacloban, and she has not been able to reach them. Thankfully she is in Manila.) But of course, we still worry about those who have been shook hard by the earthquake, and now is sufferign more because of this.

Below are the lists of some charitable institutions which can contribute in the search and rescue operations of our kababayans in the Central Philippines:

Let us all do our share. If we cannot donate money, goods, then at least find some time to volunteer. Any amount of money or help that we can extend towards the typhoon victims will certainly go a long, long way.

I hope that those who stole from the kaban ng bayan, will do soemthing about this travesty. Have some conscience within them to return the money, instead of using it for personal glory but to help the Super Typhoon Yolanda's victims.

Elections. More Noisy in the Phillipines


It's driving me crazy! 

It is election time once again, and even though its just a week's time, the non stop playing of jingles on some vehicle's megaphone is so loud. my head is about to explode. 

Was there ever a time, when these people running for office, just gave speeches or even mounted election posters. Seriusly, who thought about the color coding scheme? That wearing orange, red, or blue (sometimes the floral design) would automatically mean that the voter is in favor of you.

What about these non stop jingles. Aren't these baranggay officials supposed to maintain the peace and order in their vicinities, But, what do they do? They go ahead and recreate the national elections, gayahin ang mga idols who are in the higher office and suddenly composes a jingle about their names and disrupt, whatever little time I have for myself.

Honestly, baranggay officials should be confident enough to know their constituents and that they will vote for them by simply seeing their names in a ballot. If these people running for baranggay office are truly good neighbors, then there is no need to promote themselves as they can trust their co-barangays that they know that they have indeed contributed such to the community. That in itself will give them name recall. 

My head will explode if one more "iboto!" jingle passes through my auditoty nerve! Oh no!, there it is, the impending  ,, whhhaaat!
Enjoy the tomato sauce!

* Sorry for the grammatical error in the Title, it is a scheme for the country's tourism tagline, More fun in the Philippines.

On the job will film in Hollywood, will Gerald Anderson and Piolo Pascual get parts?

It is confirmed!

Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to the celebrated, yet box-office disappointment, On the Job.

The question here is will the new director/screenwriter/producer Baltasar Kolmakur give parts to the Filipino leads, say Gerald Anderson and Piolo Pascual; the way Iza Calzado scored a Hollywood deal when the Yam Lamares' film Sigaw was remade in the US (the Echo).

Hmm, we can only wait and see. after all, Kolmakur did say that he had been developing the stiry even before OTJ begun production Tsk! Tsk!

To read more:
Universal Options on the Job

Universal Pictures has optioned the rights to crime thriller “On the Job,” withBaltasar Kormakur on board to write and direct and Scott Stuber on board to produce.
Kormakur will also produce for his RVK Studios while Stuber will produce through his Universal-based Bluegrass Films banner. XYZ Films partners Nate Bolotin, Nick Spicer and Aram Tertzakian will also produce.
While some inspiration for the concept came from Erik Matti’s Filipino movie “On The Job,” Kormakur actually had already begun developing a project based on the same events as “On The Job” with XYZ Films before the Filipino film began production.
The pic is based on the real-life scandal where prison inmates were temporarily released from prison to work as contract killers on behalf of politicians and high ranking military officials.
XYZ Films handled worldwide sales and the film is now in release through Well Go USA in North America. It premiered at Cannes this year in the Directors Fortnight.
The remake and Kormakur’s involvement were reported this summer, but at the time the film didn’t have a studio to call home.
Nick Nesbitt, who brought the project in to Bluegrass Films, will oversee the project. Kyle Franke will oversee on behalf of XYZ Films while Universal’s vice president of production Anikah McLaren will oversee on behalf of the studio.
Universal and Kormakur have already seen good returns with “Contraband” and “2 Guns” and teaming him up with one of the studio’s top producers could lead to even bigger results.
Kormakur has been busy developing several projects including the Working Title pic “Everest” starring Josh Brolin and Jake Gyllenhaal. Stuber has seen big results on the comedy end with “Ted” and “Identity Thief.”
His action thriller “Safe House,” which could have similarities to “On the Job,” also hit big making more than $200 million worldwide.
XYZ Films and CAA co-brokered the underlying rights deal with Universal on behalf of the producers of On The Job.
Kormakur is repped by WME and attorney Peter Nelson. Matti is represented by CAA and attorney Chris Spicer.

5 good reasons why UST should win the UAAP Season 76 Men's Basketball

Mark your calendars, October 5, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. as the Tomato Girl makes her prediction that UST will take home the UAAP Season 76 Men's Basketball Trophy. Here are reasons why UST should and will win:

1. because UST has the heart for it. Can you hear the crowd going wild? People chanting the ever immortal cheer, "Go USTE! Go USTE!" Some sports writers say that the UAAP finals game has one theme: heart versus height. La Salle's boys may be taller, but UST's ballers has a rare never say die attitude. UST showed well enough aggressiveness and determination when they rewrote UAAP history and defeated the top seeded NU in the semifinals in a twice to beat battle.

Definitely, the cries are deafening, and that is what drives these Thomasian players to their core.

2. because Coach Pido cried for this. When Pido Jarencio says in between sobs, "Di ko talaga akalain na aabot pa kami [I really didn’t think that we would get this far]. Maraming taong nagdududa sa kakayanan ko [A lot of people doubted my ability].” Then, there must be something wrong, and that is why he needs to prove his detractors (am not one of them, thank you) wrong with this coveted trophy.

3. because UST earned it.Some say, like UP coach Rey Madrid that UST has the experience, giving them a clear shot for the title cup. With a disappointing runner up finish last year's run against Ateneo, UST proved that it has earned where it is today, and does not need to be a runner up. Kevin Ferrer worked out those three pointers, Abdul finally making those penalty shots, and the rest of the team just playing that darn hard.

4. because it's Jeric's Teng final year. Adding more oomph and inspiration to the never say die attitude is team captain is that this is team captain, Jeric Teng's final year. He made it clear that he wanted to go to the championship when he faced Bobby Ray Parks and the NU Bulldogs with the shirt that said, nope not today.

Of course, everybody wants a memorable exit. a championship finish, and not a runner-up (or as some say first loser). “We’re so close to the championship; we’re really going to fight for it,” the older Teng told Inquirer after winning against NU.

5. finally because God is a Thomasian. He made UST win against Ateneo, He can do it again, this time with the Espanya boys beating La Salle.

Goodbye MOD!

Although I was not part of this magazine when it had reached its pinnacle, I am still glad to have been part of MOD Mag.

I guess none of my colleagues, when they worked there was even part of MOD during its heyday. Well, none except our great editor-in-chief Cynthia U. Santiago.

The Angel Locsin Cover Story I worked on. 

I remember every time I would attend a presscon, and I told people I was from MOD Mag, they will reply, "ay yung malaki,' and will make hand gestures to mimic the size. The MOD Mag that I worked for was the standard magazine size, 11x8. However sad but true, Mod that time was losing its direction.

I learned from a former colleague that this October 2013 issue will be MOD's last. The company, owned by National Bookstore, had decided to shut it down.

Thirty-eight years in the publishing industry is a formidable feat, and for a woman, it is still an age wherein one feels her beauty. To MOD, Forever 38!
