EARTH HOUR Goes To The Seas


“My banca was my sole means of earning a living,” explains a Coron fisherman gazing at the shattered remains of his boat.

Typhoon Yolanda smashed the country on 8 November 2013, bearing winds and waves so ferocious that most of Tacloban City was obliterated. The death toll has soared past 6200, with 2000 still missing. Over 100 days since the calamity, hundreds of communities still rely on relief efforts to survive. Worse, Yolanda’s 330kph winds demolished at least 30,000 bancas – the traditional outrigger boats of the Philippines, depriving around 145,000 fisherfolk of their livelihoods.

Twilight and Percy Jackson producer brings another potential young adult movie hit via THE BOOK THIEF


From Karen Rosenfelt, producer of blockbuster young adult movies such as the “Twilight” saga, “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,”  “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “The Devil Wears Prada” bring another potential hit among the young and the young at heart in the upcoming endearing movie “The Book Thief,” starring Sophie Nelisse with acclaimed award-winning actors Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.           

Based on the beloved bestselling novel, “The Book Thief” tells the inspiring story of a spirited and courageous young girl named Liesel, who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany. For Liesel, the power of words and of imagination becomes a means of escape – and even joy – from the tumultuous events enveloping her and everyone she knows and loves. She is “The Book Thief’s”  heart and soul.  Indeed, it is heart and soul – as well as triumph and perseverance—that drive the film, which is rich in themes and characters that will resonate for every generation.  A moving and poignant portrait of the resiliency of the human spirit, this life-affirming tale contrasts innocence (as embodied by Liesel) with the pervasive tyranny that marked the times and her homeland.

What made me RawRRR in TIPSY PIG!!!


For people who work 5 days a week (or may be even counted 7 because of the loooong work hours), spending Friday nights or any weekend nights well is really really sacred!  Yes, because for people who work really hard, we deserve to cap the week with a great celebration!  

Well, great celebration, doesn't always mean a big party.  For me, it would just be a night of good food, good drinks, good chat and good laugh with good friends!  And that equates to good times!  And that's what my bloggies (blog buddies!) and I actually experienced when we did some catching up and try this new place, the current talk of the town in Capitol Commons Pasig City, a gastropub called Tipsy Pig!  

Getting there is so easy.  From EDSA then to Shaw Boulevard, we just turned left to the Capitol Commons place (this is where the old Pasig hall is located).  

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred in the upcoming Superman / Batman film


Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film. The dual announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Snyder stated, “Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”
