Arjo Atayde keeps getting better as an actor & person

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 0 Comments


The first time I watched Arjo Atayde was on the primetime TV series "Eboy" he got my attention cause of his charm. I was like who's this cute tisoy guy on TV hahahahaha. I had no idea back then that he is the handsome son of Ms. Sylvia Sanchez cos he's not using his mom's last name.



You know me, when charming actor got my attention, I'll be a follower of his career. So after doing a teleserye under Star Creatives, he did several episodes of "MMK" (Malaala Mo Kaya) where he won 2 awards from Star Awards for TV in one of the episodes. And yes, I saw each episode, that's for the love of Arjo.



Then, he did the afternoon soap opera "Dugong Buhay," with Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus Big Winner Big Winner Ejay Falcon & Yam Concepcion, which, I think, is his first teleserye under GMO Unit of ABS-CBN. If on his first teleserye, I fell in love with his charm, this time, I fell in love with his acting. No doubt he won a Best Supporting Actor award for this series

The character poster of Raymond (played by Arjo Atayde) in the Philippine adaptation of Pure Love

I was a big fan of the Koreanovela "49 Days" (Philippine title: "Pure Love") & when ABS-CBN announced that Arjo would play the character of Raymond which was originally played by Bae Soo-Bin I was really happy cos he was that kind of actor who possesses good looks but could play manipulative character. And when the show started to reveal the real Raymond, oh boy, he didn't fail me. He gave emotions that I was expecting from his character. He was even better than the original Korean actor

.

But in the primetime series "Ang Probinsyano," which was his first teleserye under Dreamscape, where he really shone. He portrayal of Joaquin Tuazon really made an impact to the viewers & put his name to the top spot of Philippine entertainment industry. Let's admit, we hated his character but we loved seeing Arjo every night. And when his character died, I was like why did you kill him, the show would be lousy without him.



ABS-CBN gave him "Hanggang Saan" a new teleserye with his mom, Ms. Sylvia Sanchez, who made a remarkable portrayal of the character Gloria in the hit afternoon teleserye "The Greatest Love." In this teleserye, Arjo plays the role of Paco who is a law student and Sonya’s (Ms. Sylvia Sanchez) dedicated son. At first, I was so worried if he could beat his performance in "Ang Probinsyano" but Arjo is a great actor, he keeps getting better, he didn't fail me again. His portrayal of Paco is one of the reasons why "Hanggang Saan" got high ratings & always a trending topic on Twitter. He would make sure that you would follow his character and he owns each character that he portrays. Even his short portrayal of Lizardo in the 2017 movie "Ang Panday" made an impact to everyone who watched the film. Viewers and critics alike praised his performance and some said he should have been the main villain in the said Coco Martin  film.


He maybe the son of a great actress but he didn't use his mother to get a seat in showbiz. He made a name for himself. I will never get tired supporting Arjo cause a great actor like him deserves our support. Aside from being a great actor, he is also a great person that's why rich people and masa love him. He truly and genuinely appreciate every praise and good comments he receives. He makes sure to thank all the people who appreciate his work. I always hear stories from the production people that Arjo has no attitude and he is always professional when it comes to acting. He could be the baddest villain on screen but he is an angel in real life. Love yah, Arjo!

My nightly source of good vibes, 'My Korean Jagiya" ends tonight

0 Comments



As a K-Drama fan, I'm so thankful to GMA Network for producing My Korean Jagiya, the first-ever Filipino-Korean romantic comedy series top-billed by Heart Evangelista and Korean star Alexander Lee. It followed the love story of the Korean superstar Kim Jun Ho played by Alexander and the hopelessly romantic K-Drama Pinay fan girl Gia played by Heart. Ang saya lang kasi every K-Drama fan ay nakarelate sa story ni Gia, kung gaano siya kabaliw sa mga Korean dramas at sa mga stars nito & kung gaano niya kabisado ang mga linya ng bawat characters at pati pagpunta sa shooting locations sa #SouthKorea as part of her #bucketlist. Pero ang ultimate dream ng bawat K-Drama fan is to marry your fave Korean star na natupad ni Gia. It looks impossible, pero like Gia walang masama kung mangangarap.

Like Meant To Be, it also became my nightly source of good vibes. Ito yung tipo ng show na papanoorin mo bago ka matulog para puno ka ng good vibes & kilig sa susunod na araw. Mamayang gabi matatapos na siya at eto lungkot-lungkutan ako while doing this post & listening to the show's official theme song My Jagiya. Yung cute love story ni Kim Jun Ho at Gia o JuGia talagang mamimiss ko. Yung nagwiwish ka na sana di pa tonight ang finale. Galing din kasi ng show na kahit magkaiba languages ng 2 lead characters ay puno pa rin ng kilig & you could feel the K-Drama vibes. I'm going to miss the colourful outfits of Heart & of course, I'm going to miss my jagiya, everyone's jagiya, Alexander.

Both Heart and Alexander expressed their gratitude to everyone who supported the series since day 1.

Heart said she’s glad that people loved her character, Gia, as much as she did. “To be honest, after a really, really long time, it’s the first time that I felt that people appreciated me, and my efforts. I’m so thankful na na-appreciate niyo and naipakita ko rin ang love ko for my job. To the show, to the staff and to GMA, I just want to put it on record, I fell in love with my work again because of this show. Binusog niyo ako ng bonggang bongga. Thank you to the fans, to everyone, to the writers, and thank you even to the people that pushed me to do my best and it worked,” says Heart.

Alexander, on the other hand, said he has learned many things while doing the soap which has brought laughter and good vibes to the TV viewers, “There are too many things I learned from the shows ranging from Filipino culture, working experience, to reflection on life. I think the most important thing I learned this time is also what Jun Ho learnt: Fame and popularity do not make you happy; it’s the loved ones around you that is more important and could bring you true happiness,” says Alexander.

Meanwhile, director Mark Reyes shared he definitely enjoyed doing the soap and he will miss working with everyone on set most especially Heart and Alexander. “This is my 3rd project with Heart. It’s always a joy to work with her. She’s grown so much as an actress and has become more beautiful. Xander and the rest of the Korean cast are the ones I will truly miss. They’ve become family almost immediately. And I think Xander is an underrated Korean artist that I will look forward to working with again. Please allow me to thank you to all the Kapuso Jagiyas for watching us until the very end. Gomawo!”

Di ko talaga palalagpasin ang MY KOREAN JAGIYA: K-LIG FINALE NGAYONG GABI after Kambal Karibal sa GMA Telebabad.

American Idol judge Katy Perry is coming to Manila for Witness: The Tour

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 0 Comments



In the wake of the North American tour’s stellar reviews and added concerts, American Idol judge Katy Perry announces the Asia leg of WITNESS: The Tour. Produced by AEG Presents and Ovation Productions, Katy Perry will visit Manila on 02 April 2018 at the Mall Of Asia Arena. Besides Manila, WITNESS: The Tour Asia leg also includes Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Bangkok and Jakarta. This announcement follows the addition of a South American leg in March, Mexico, UK and European legs kicking off in May of 2018, and an Australian/New Zealand leg commencing in July of 2018.



Tickets for the 02 April 2018 show go on sale 12 noon of 11 December 2017 via KatyPerry.com. Ticket prices are P19,540/ 16,370/ 13,200/ 6,870/ 2,640. See itinerary via www.smtickets.com.



The North American leg, which began in September, has received rave reviews.

“Eye-popping” – USA Today

“Ms. Perry was as confident and adept onstage as she’s ever been” –The New York Times

“Enormous, colorful sets with eye-popping props, strong vocals that kept her at the front of top-40 live performers, and a presence now more refined than radicalized” – Los Angeles Times

“Fast-paced and fun” – Boston Globe

“Katy Perry’s Witness Tour Looks Are Out of This World” – InStyle

“Colorful, sparkling spectacle” – Billboard

“As concert productions go, Perry’s is the definition of top-notch and an Instagram dream: a highly choreographed, sensory overloaded assault that sparkles, swings, struts, and even flies.” – Variety




With Witness, Katy finds liberation, in the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that inspire both thought and movement. The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, and the singles, “Bon App├ętit” featuring Migos and “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness.

WITNESS: the Tour is an imaginative trip from outer-space to inner-space, from the planets to the bottom of our oceans, and a musical journey through Katy Perry’s biggest milestones and mega-hits right up to her latest album. The dramatically original staging means that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, when Katy brings out her band and dancers, along with all the bells and whistles.

WITNESS: The Tour is Katy’s first run since the sold-out, 151-date Prismatic World Tour, which concluded in 2015 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as "a show to damage retinas and blow minds." Sponsors include KATY PERRY PARFUMS.

Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter, and the first to surpass 100 million followers.

So, see you on April 2, 2018 at MOA Arena to witness Katy Perry's greatest performances.

Lemuel Lorca passionately congratulated his entire team, including the award winners: “Nakakatuwa lang. Pag indipendently produced ang isang pelikula, mga magkakaibigan lang madalas ang magtutulungan para makagawa lang ng isang pelikula. Kung minsan buwis-buhay alang alang lang sa ginagawa. Nakakakonsesnya at nakakataba ng puso ang trabaho, paghihirap, sakripisyo at kontribusyon na binibigay nila mapaganda lang ang pelikula. Kaya ito lang ang nais mo para sa mga kasamahan-ang marecognize sila at maparangalan. Ito lang ang pwede mong regalo na maibigay bukod sa pagkakaibigan at kaunting maiiaabot wag lang masabing libre. Mabuhay kayo at maraming salamat! Congrats ulit!”

Heroes Vs Villains: Trick or Treating with the Vivo V7+

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 0 Comments


Trick or treating is something that was introduced locally a few years ago but something that has become almost an instant hit to children and adults alike. Shooting a good and clear Halloween photo with the usual low-lit or dim setting of a Halloween ambiance may be a challenge with an ordinary phone camera.


But with the Vivo V7+, dimly-lit environment is never a challenge when taking a clear selfie shot. Known for rocking one of the first 24MP selfie-centric smartphones to hit the market, the V7+ Vivo’s perfect response to the selfie phenomenon. Its 24MP clearer selfie, front facing camera, with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo while one is out and about whether for tricks or treats. A fan of scary movies or Armageddon-type video games? Enjoy them with the V7+’s revolutionary 5.99 all-screen Display boasting of an 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature is also a hit even for the not-so-pretty Halloween masks as it brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in Halloween’s overcast set-up. The V7+’s camera also has a built-in Bokeh feature which gives photos a beautiful effect of a soft out-of-focus background, a famous aesthetic in selfies in the recent years.

VIVO Philippines took you to the fashion scene at the MEGA FASHION WEEK Spring Summer 2018 with Verniece Enciso, a voracious lifestyle, beauty, travel, and fashion blogger, as the VIVO V7+ Fashion Insider, featuring clearer selfies with the 24MP front camera.

The MEGA Fashion Week which officially unveiled at a pre-party event last October 23 at the posh Twenty Four Seven Mckinley in the heart of the bustling Bonifacio Global City, is co-sponsored by Vivo, an established smartphone brand popular for its sleek and stylish designs coupled with thumbprint, top-of-the-line features.

I Found 7 Reasons To Watch 'I Found My Heart In Santa Fe'

Thursday, September 7, 2017 2 Comments



I was invited to cover the blogcon of the upcoming romantic-comedy movie "I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" which was produced by Bluart Productions. Before coming to the blogcon, I had very small amount of knowledge about the film --- that it stars real-life couple Will Devaughn & Roxanne Barcelo.

Buti na lang during blogcon they played the trailer which looks so cutesy, charming & romantic. I even stopped talking to my co-bloggers while watching the trailer & from that moment, I've already found 7 reasons to watch this movie. So, let's start counting.


1. REAL-LIFE COUPLE GOALS


Like what I've said, the movie stars the real-life couple Roxanne Barcelo & Will Devaughn ---- they had been in a relationship for four years now.

Haba naman ng hair ni Teh Roxanne, four years is four years, big achievement yun, pak!

I was so curious if yung chemistry ba nila in real life ay madadala ba nila sa big screen as a loveteam. First time kasi nila magsama sa isang movie, so talagang ma-tetest sa movie na ito ang kanilang chemistry. Ganern!

Based on the trailer meron silang something different na ma-i-o-offer especially yung characters nila na very opposite sa isa't-isa. Very Byx ang peg ng character ni Roxanne, she plays the island girl Jennifer who is smart, fierce, hardworking & pretty with unique personality & speaks gay linggo - akong-ako talaga ito mga beshie!!! Kaya lang brokenhearted itong si Jennifer & this heartache made her tougher & wiser.

Si Papa Will naman will play the German-Filipino named Viktor. Siya yung tipong AFAM of our dreams --- rich, adventurous, athletic, music lover and, of course, handsome but remains a simple man. Pero si ideal AFAM natin is not perfect cos he's searching for the missing pieces of his life.

Their nakakakilig & exciting journey to love will start when Viktor decided to fly to Santa Fe to look for his biological mother.


2. THE MORENA BEAUTY


Another thing na gusto ko sa trailer ay pinakita dito na winner ang gandang morena -- promote our own skin colour.


The two will bump into each other in a rather odd situation but due  to Viktor's insistence and persistence, he will stop at nothing to win the heart of Jennifer. He was captivated by Jennifer's morena beauty & charm. PAK!!!!


Sabi nga sa kantang "Morena" ni Roxanne Barcelo, "Iba magmahal ang isang morena."


3. AFAM GOALS




Sa mga ka-beshie natin na in love sa AFAM, eto talaga yung perfect movie para sa atin. When I saw Viktor, kinilig ako dahil siya talaga yung ideal AFAM of our dreams ang peg niya.




Trailer pa lang, nakikita ko na ang sarili ko kay Jennifer na love na love ng isang AFAM who will do everything to win her heart. Tapos tayong mga girlash pa-hard-to-get ang oeg natin. I'm sure nakakarelate kayo mga ka-beshie. Ito na talaga yun, woooooh!!!


4. DIRECTED BY BONA FAJARDO


The movie "I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" is directed by Bona Fajardo. He was one of the people who started independent-digital filmmaking (indie film) in 2000. Siya lang naman ang direktor ng 1st indie film ng Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera Judy Ann Santos --- "Miss Pinoy" an advocacy film on Overseas Filipino Workers.


He also directed the movie "Iliw" about Vigan, Ilocos Sur topbilled by Kaye Abad.

Tarush itong si direk because he's part of the production & creative team of Robin Padilla's indie film "Astigmatism" which won a Silver Award (Digital) at Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) -- a first for the Philippines.

After winning awards, Direk Bona & his group decided to venture into film technology development & was later assigned to film tourism.


5. GAY LINGO & QUOTABLE QUOTE


Natuwa ako sa trailer kasi may mga beki lingo o gay lingo & I'm excited to hear more beki words sa movie since the character of Jennifer (Roxanne) is a babaeng bakla as in perfect nya ang Gay Lingo subject!


Tapos may mga quotable quote pa na talaga namang tagos sa puso.

"Love doesn't ask because it's ready to trust, love doesn't ask because it's ready to understand"

Pak! Pak! Winner!!!!


6. THEME SONG


I'm sure narinig ko na somewhere ang song na "Morning, Noon & Nighttime" na theme song ng movie. It was originally performed by Jane Olivor but for this movie ang si Roxanne naman ang nag-cover. When it was played sa trailer, tumaas yung kilig meter ko, it really helps sa kiligness ng mga scenes and I'm so excited to hear this song sa movie. Roxanne's version of the song really fits sa story at location ng movie.


7. THE BEAUTIFUL PARADISE OF SANTA FE


One of the main factors that move the love story of Jennifer & Viktor is the pristine & raw beauty of Santa Fe --- it really makes the movie more interesting & serves as the perfect romantic backdrop.


Santa Fe is a municipality part of Bantayan Island in Cebu which has a beautiful non-crowded beach that boasts of white sand that sparkles in the sunlight.


It was last year when Director Bona Fajardo discovered Santa Fe & got an idea to shoot a movie. It's really the perfect setting for the beautiful & endearing love story of Jennifer & Viktor.


I hope, with this movie, the tourism industry of the paradise of Santa Fe will boost.

"I Found My Heart in Santa Fe" is about a girl searching for love & a boy searching for his roots in a beautiful island full of wonders. It is the 1st brand new film to be screened at Cine Lokal in select SM Cinemas beginning September 15.
