BEP set history on its Manila concert

Image
The biggest concert of 2011, Black Eyed Peas performed last October 25 at SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. Members Will.i.am, Taboo, Fergie, and our very own Apl.de.ap had its momentous concert with their extravagant production, electrifying performance and spectacular light display.







On its presscon, the day before the concert date - the group shared their stories and how much they loved the Philippines. As they continue to reminisce all those joyous events that the group had including how passionate they are in pursuing and entering the music scene; specially Apl.de.ap where he decided to form an organization "We can be anything" helping all youth to finish their studies and make a goal. The presscon was very casual and we had so much fun discovering how much the group cherished their friendship. As Fergie said that these boys were her 'brothers' and how much they cared for each other. It was also revealed on that day that the group decided to take a break and the Ph…

Alfred Vargas' crusade helping Persons with Disabilities (PWD)

Image
We've seen him on Television (in some drama series) until I met him personally and shared his personal crusade helping Persons with Disabilities.


Councilor Alfred Vargas had this opportunity to become 'the voice' of Persons with Disabilities. As he works as the city official (councilor) of Quezon City, He knew that there were limited social services for PWD and On his experience how he felt seeing people on wheelchairs, being reprimanded to enter the building because there is no easy entry and exit points for wheelchair-bound customers. Even he saw office buildings and malls of not having a decent ramp for persons with disabilities. And being turned away from restaurants, buses and cabs. Even NO ACCESS for people who couldn't walk on their own.



Though he expressed, giving wheelchairs to his constituents were not enough and Councilor Vargas decided to bring the fight to the entire Metro Manila. The Struggle of the PWD in Quezon city is the same as the struggle of his coun…

Fashion and style Of Black Eyed Peas

Being in the spotlight challenges most celebrities to wear clothes that reflect their personality and show off their individuality. Even if they are in their street clothes, they are always praised and greatly appreciated for what could become the next trend. In addition, famous magazines and online celebrity sites always feature what these individuals wear to gain more readers and visitors.

But does Celebrity Fashion really influence what people? To a certain extent I think it does. With reality television as well, advertising is a lot more subtle. Since its “real”, people tend not to notice product placement because they’re told the environment is absolu…

City Kart Racing's 1st Blogger's Blaze Fun Cup 2011

Image
Practice makes perfect. There's always room for improvement. I never tried driving or go-karting until last Saturday, we went to City Kart Racing located in the parking lot of Park Square (1) - Seventh floor. Yes, you need to take an elevator to reach the venue. Its the first indoor kart-racing that has been introduced to the Philippines. At first I was really scared, I didn't had the chance to practice but I could still have the perseverance to drive. I arrived late at the venue, blame it on the 'Mall Sale' happened on my way to Makati. The traffic was really bad on that weekend and I woke up late :) haha.




Okay, at first I was introduced to the management of City Kart - Jean-Marc Freihuber and had a chance to learn some techniques in kart racing. We were about to start with the fun race and all bloggers were divided into group. A friend of mine also tried to orient me on some things that I must learn before I race.
