Understanding a Complicated Character -- MY WEEK WITH MARILYN Movie Review


Marilyn Monroe.  She has captivated... and intrigued the world for decades.  And although she has passed away for many years already, the public's interest on her never went away.  And this exactly was what I witnessed during the press screening of My Week with Marilyn last February 24 in Greenbelt's My Cinema.

Directed by Simon Curtis and written by Adrian Hodges, the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated My Week with Marilyn is a biographical film based on the books of Colin Clark which depicted the 1957 film The Prince and The Showgirl starring Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh).  The film focuses on the week when Monroe spent time being escorted around Britain by film apprentice Clark (Eddie Redmayne) after her husband Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott) left the country.  The week told in the film is the missing part on Clark's diary The Prince, The Showgirl and Me when it was published.  It was however revealed several years after the initial publication.

National Geographic Channel's INSIDE MALACANANG Premieres on March 18


It was said that Malacanang was derived from the Tagalog phrase "May Lakan Dyan" (there is a noble man there) since locals referred to it as a place of a wealthy and powerful man or "Mamalakaya" since fishermen frequented the river bend where the Palace now stands.

It was also once dubbed as a “foremost home” by Spanish governor generals. The Americans on the other hand made it a social hub for the country’s elite while the Japanese transformed it into a garrison.  Yet after all these changes, MalacaƱang Palace still stands proudly by the Pasig River today. One would wonder what is now inside the cordoned-off areas of the palace.

On March 18, at 9pm catch the premiere of the original documentary Inside MalacaƱang as National Geographic Channel (NGC) takes you to an exclusive guided tour inside the official residence of the country’s chief executive.

Annebisyosa Anne Curtis did the TaDi!


This is the 3rd day of the 5-day 2nd anniversary of Tatak Digitista.  And guess what's the surprise I got?  Well, there's a new hot celebrity who posed for TaDi!  She's no other than the Philippines' National Sweetheart, Princess of All Media, New Concert Princess and Olay Natural White Ambassador, Annebisyosa herself, Anne Curtis!  

I was so lucky and privileged to have Anne Curtis do the TaDi Pose especially now that Tatak Digitista is celebrating its 2nd anniversary!  What a very special gift indeed!  :)  And more that, when Anne was posing for TaDi, she said (while smiling and looking at the TaDi sign), "I know this. You tweeted me!"  And that completed my day!  :)

Actually, this was third time to meet Anne but TaDi was not yet born then.  First was when she was starting, when she was promoting a movie in SOP where I had one of my broadcast internships, second was when she was launched as the ambassador of Whisper, and now when she welcomes Tessa Prieto Valdez to the Olay family as the newest ambassador of Olay Regenerist.

All I can say is Anne is beautiful inside and out.  She's so nice, pleasant, fun to be with and extremely stunning!  Am so much honored and elated to have her in the circle of celebrities for Tatak Digitista. 

Again, thank you so much Anne!  :)  More power to you!

This Means Unstoppable Fun! -- THIS MEANS WAR Movie Review


February, the Valentines month, is the time where romantic movies, either drama or comedy, dominate and rule the movie scene.  Year after year, we expect such movies only will be offered and and would be liked by many.  But 20th Century Fox believe otherwise this time around!  Come February 22, a brand new Valentine movie will hit Philippine theaters as 20th Century Fox releases the romantic-action-comedy THIS MEANS WAR!

THIS MEANS WAR tells the story of two of the world’s deadliest CIA operatives who are inseparable partners and best friends FDR Foster (Chris Pine) and Tuck Henson (Tom Hardy) until they fall for the same woman Lauren Scott (Reese Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever – each other.

Can't Take No for Ueno -- Our Trip to Ueno Zoological Gardens (Japan Naman part 2)


If you've been an old-time TaDi reader, I guess you'll know by now that I aside from digital media, movies and heritage, I am an enthusiast of the wildlife.   In fact, as I shared before, this passion has prompted me to dream of becoming a part of National Geographic.  :)

Oh well, that was just a childhood fantasy but I can still feel the remnants of that dream.  During my recent trip to Japan, I learned that Ueno Zoological Gardens, the oldest zoo in Japan which was founded in 1882, provides home to two new giant pandas!  Its original panda Lingling, which was brought to Japan in 1972 together with another panda, died in 2008 due to old age.  I've actually saw pandas already in 2003 during my visit to Hong Kong's Ocean Park.  But I guess, these creatures have really a soft spot in my heart and I can't afford not to see them again when there's a chance.  I just can't take no for Ueno!  :)

Japan Naman! (Japan This Time Around!) -- The TaDi Japan Special


New World in 2012.  When I crafted this battlecry for 2012, I didn't expect that the turnout will be that fast.  January 02 is when I heard the good news about our Japan trip!  And woah, it was just a great way to kick off the year!  After Hong Kong, Dongguan, Shenzhen, Asian Cruise in HK, Sanya City and Vietnam, Shanghai, and Singapore, foydi is now headed to a little much farther place.  This year, it's Japan Naman! (Japan This Time Around!)

At first I can't believe the trip in Japan but I guess dreams really do come true.  Finally, I'll be in the land where Godzilla, Voltes V, Ghost Fighter and even Sadako came from!  :D  I suddenly thought of what Japan has to offer (aside from the snow in Mount Fuji! hehe) -- a marvelous culture both ancient and modern (think of ninjas, shoguns, geishas, sumo wrestling and then of animes, manga, game shows, toys and hit movies), an amazing technology plus transport system, a laudable way of life and of course a great cuisine!

But bundled with the excitement is the pressure of preparing for the trip.  Applying for VISA was quite a long process but our trip's travel coordinators / agency helped us in every step of the way.  And then since we are up for a winter vacation, we needed to gear up in terms of clothes and toiletries.  It was a month long search for winter clothes but I only managed to focus on the preparation a week for the actual trip.  (Yup, blame it to my January load hehe).  I looked for winter jackets, clothes for layering, walking shoes fit for the weather, thermal underwear, lip balm, moisturizer, sunblock, and medicines among many others!

Taking care of the environment is not exclusive to grown ups!  In fact, it's better for parents to teach their kids the value of environment care at an early age, during children's formative years.  This is when they will learn the lessons by heart and bring it to their adulthood.

Even a kid can be an environment steward.  And If you don't know how, well, WWF is here to help you!  And one perfect opportunity is through WWF's upcoming event!

This February, you and your kids can show some love for the environment and our local endangered species by joining the 1st WWF Mural Painting Marathon!  The marathon will be held on February 18, 2012, 2pm at the Glorietta Dolphin Park for the WWF Philippines 1st Dolphin Mural Painting Marathon to help raise awareness about endangered animals and the need to protect their habitats.

"He bared his ass quite a bit," Access Hollywood correspondent Tim Vincent said of Channing's performance to Rachel at the film's junket. "He did bare some other things. Yeah, he goes for it," Rachel said with laugh.

Ruffa Gutierrez, Mikey Bustos, Somedaydream and more Do the TaDi Pose!


In 2011, 100 celebrities did the TaDi pose!  And as I continue to go full blast this year, TaDi adds five new famous personalities, both offline and online, to the growing number of fun celebrities doing the TaDi pose!  :)

Ruffa Gutierrez's TaDi pose!  :)  
As soon as Ruffa posed for TaDi, everyone in the crowd cheered! :)  Ruffa was so nice and game to do the TaDi pose and the rest of the people during that time were happy for me (thank you folks!).  :)  Ruffa guested in Wyeth's Promil Gold event where she shared her experiences and knowledge on parenting.  Ruffa is a perfect example that beauty and brain can go well together.  More than her graceful presence during the event, Ruffa shared very interesting tips and information about modern day parenting.  For example, she holds the password of her IPad2 so that she can manage the "techtime" of her daughters!  Cool mom right? :)

Chicharron ni Mang Juan, take a bite and be bitten!


If we make a vote today on which is the most iconic Filipino snack, I can strongly bet that chicharon will be top of our list!  Who would be able to resist the crunch and mouthwatering taste of this well loved food.

But recently I discovered another innovation of our all-time favorite chicharon.   Our very own chicharon has adapted to the changing lifestyle of the Filipinos.  This is what I saw in Jack ‘n Jill’s new Chicharron ni Mang Juan as it proudly brings in a uniquely Pinoy snack that is generous in both flavor and servings.  In a blogcon organized by Universal Robina Corporation (maker of Chicharron ni Mang Juan) and Stratworks, I first witnessed how Chicharron ni Mang Juan transformed our favorite snack to a thick chip like texture which will let us enjoy hassle-free snacking, perfect for barkada trips, DVD marathons, karaoke parties or even while doing something at our work stations! (if it's allowed by our office admins!  hehe).
