Vic Chou - New Perfect Two - Movie

Image
It has been 'years' since I've watched a film with subtitles. Yes, that is right. After a long hiatus watching asian series or movies, I am glad I was able to get myself back on track.

I ordered 'New Perfect Two' DVD from our F4 friend which starred Vic Chou and Xiao Xio Bin. The flick is a story of a champion motorbike racer who had lost everything including his loved one. For the past six years, after abadonment, his wife introduced their child (such an adorable kid, Bin Bin) and finds a true inspiration from his son to recover; making every moment inseparable. This is such a very light story and I was really impressed how it touches our heart on each scenes.

Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty

Image
Most of the times when we asked for something or look for certain things for an answer, we tend to research or consult someone we know. But when it comes to the meaning of 'real beauty,'--none of us will answer, that's me no need to search for answers???? (laughing).

I've checked online and to my surprise, Wikipedia has a long description of 'beauty,' quoting from the website: An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty)

To you, how do you simply this statement? Actually, beauty is something that we often see or feel regardless of the situation. Some feels it was only a pleasure, but the true meaning of beauty is something that we cannot see.

Dove's Real Beauty Campaign
Would you believe that 96% of women think they are not BEAUTIFUL. Yes, you read it right. And this time, Dove continues to prove that women should realize…

Gloc-9's new single, Sirena - a certified hit

Image
Gloc-9 releases his new album, MKNM: Mga Kwento ng Makata that includes a collaboration with the biggest stars in the OPM recording history. During his presscon last August 17, he mentioned that is was not really hard to convince some of these artists because they are really approachable. In fact, the new album contains some of the various stories of different people he encountered.

Sirena, which hits the number 1 spot on MYX last time was Gloc-9's first time to make a song about a gay man, and in fact, it was presented in a first person's point of view. The music video also casts several successful gay man including Boy Abunda.

I also asked Gloc-9 about his show on that night because I believe his fans are waiting for him to sing some of the new songs and old songs in one night. There were also questions involved on how he wrote the songs, and he humbly said these were made possible through the help of some people working behind the album.

And, regarding the rap genre in the mus…

My Unforgettable Katsudon Experience at Yabu

I am a big fan of Katsudon. One of the very popular food in Japan, Katsu means 'cutlet' and has many varities of cutlet dishes from 'Pork Katsu (don), Chicken Katsu (don) and Beef Katsu (don).

Multiply.com to Shutdown Social Networking on December 2012

The first time I joined social networking site was during 'Friendster' days; from then I immediately quit several 'online groups' in Yahoo and MSN. Then, a hundred of social networking sites were born. These sites aim to be-like 'Friendster' wherein all you have to do is to invite friends, share stories, photos and create an online community with same interests.

Years after, Multiply.com was introduced in the  Philippines. We were so happy that time because we found a new venue to relate each other. Until then, the site converted into e-commerce site, welcoming several online entrepreneurs which gave them an instant opportunity to host their products - online.

Few days ago, we received an online pop up memo in Multiply.com announcing to shut down its social networking services. For the past eight years, Multiply has to retain its status as e-commerce serving consumers in Indonesia and the Philippines. We all know that there are things that a lot of businesses fac…

Smart Shopping Tips for Sale Season

For some people, shopping is just one pleasurable experience most specially during paydays. Before heading to the store, make sure you ask yourself if this is within my price budget.

Think of items that you have already. Now, start listing down the items you would like to check out: It can be anything for your home, yourself or to someone else. If you are unsure of these, put it on hold or go around to another stalls until you have decided for yourself. Make sure you will not wasting your money and energy.

If you find something for yourself that you absolutely love -- grab it! Most of the times, we regret things we didn't buy. For some reasons, can be out of range budget or you are not sure of it. But if you find something like a clothing item, then, if it is 'perfect' on your taste and style -- buy it!

Tag along a friend or a family member, act like you're buying for someone else and let them assist you. Hiring a personal shopper is quite expensive but we all know that &…

Step Up: Revolution - Dynamic and Cool

Image
When I first heard that there is a fourth installment of Step Up, I was already thinking of its storyline. I know we will be entertained by casts' dance routines and cool new steps; If you are familiar with 'flash mobs' on your area (like we saw in Malls, parks, and streets), then definitely you can relate. The film has something to do with a group (called the Mob), who wanted to get the highest views in Youtube (around 10 million hits!) and wins the prize.

Set in Miami, Sean (portrayed by Ryan Guzman) leads the The Mob and met (falls in love, yeah right) Emily (Kathryn McCormick) who wishes to be part of a professional dancing team, but her father who owns the hotel/resort where Sean works and eventually her father would like to take over Sean's neighborhood's property.

The fourth installment has new approach to gather the audience's interest: music and dancing. There were few good moves I could remember and hit songs being played.

It is an enjoyable film, for te…
