No rivalry. In fact, he went to see Moira’s concert. Isa rin siya sa mga iniidolo ko. Ang feeling ko that time, parang ayaw ko matapos. Kay Moira, ‘di pa nagsi-sink in. Masarap makipag-trabaho with artists who know what they want. Sila naman ang artist. Instrumento lang ako para ilabas visually what they want,” John said.

Yeng shared that she has a new song called “Sinesthesis.” A brain condition she discovered three years ago when she was still dating her husband now, Yan.

Kumakain kami, and habang nakikinig ng music. Naka-focus ako sa mga kulay ng pagkain. Siya nagsabi na baka meron akong sinesthesis.”

JayR in his Homeworx Studio is set to introduce an MP3 player with a headphone with several uses and definitely at a high cost.

Each has a story to tell!

**********************

“BAGANI” created quite an impact. People from the indigenous tribes were constantly reacting.

ABS-CBN released a statement:

The concept of ABS-CBN’s new fantaserye “Bagani” is to feature warriors, protectors and heroes who espouse Filipino values and beliefs.

“The production team did intensive research to determine a distinctly Filipino term that embodies a champion who fights for the common good pf his tribe and family-somebody who is brave, honorable, self-sacrificing, and good-hearted. In the end,  the team recognized that the term and concept of a “Bagani” best solidifies the trait that the program wants to highlight.

“With all due respect, “Bagani” is not in any way intended to malign or to disrespect beliefs of the Indigenous People’s communities, but instead hopes to propagate the values, morals and ethics that are inherent in a “Bagani”- a Filipino warrior, protector, and hero.

“To be clear, the “Bagani” fantaserye does not purport itself to be a historical account of Philippine history or culture. The program has always maintained that it has created an alternative fictional
universe  with elements of Filipino mythology and folklore that simply serves as an avenue to creatively deliver and highlight Filipino values, beliefs and heroism.”

That’s straight from ABS-CBN! The program is being compared to “Starwars” by the netizens now. And it shows a high-rating, too!

FOR WHATEVER is best for her BG Productions International, Madam Baby F. Go follows the suggestions and decisions of her line-producer Dennis Evangelista and whoever is tasked to direct a certain project.

With “Almost A Lovestory” of direk Louie Ignacio in the final stretch, “Latay” of Allen Dizon unfolded when direk Ralston Jover called the final cast for the storycon and script reading.

Mariel de Leon will hog the scenes with Allen’s wife in the movie, Lovi Poe and will be supported by Snooky Serna, Soliman Cruz, Vincent Magbanua, Romeo Lindain and Lady Diana Alvaro.

A good story and a good cast for sure will merit again the invitations to different film festivals abroad.

Lovi will be made to do scenes she has not even seen in movies she’s watched. And it’s not even a sexy scene.

Mariel will shed off her naive nature in the movie and will be as “palaban” as Lovi. But no. That “sampalan” scene of  Lovi with Erich Gonzales in another movie will not be repeated here!

What else should we expect from an actor like Allen with every role he portrays, it becomes second skin!

That’s something to look forward to!
