Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and son Nate enjoys bonding moments with the Telpad


 Celebrity mom and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid exemplified the modern-day Filipino mom who strikes the balance between her hectic work and her role as a family woman. Her best achievement in married life must be as the doting mother to four-year old Nathaniel James, more fondly known as Nate. We met and saw little Nate during their PLDT HOME Telpad and Smart Watch endorsement launch held a couple of weeks back in Cercio Grill along Tomas Morato, Quezon City. We like Nate. There’s a coolness with the way this kid talk and moves. His upbringing is reflected on the way […]

Weather Philippines Foundation gets urbanized with Cebu Heritage Tour


 Did you know that long before the colonizing powers of the West arrived, Cebu was once called Zubu and was already an important trading center and one of the oldest trading location known as parian is here in this city? Before Ferdinand Magellan, it was the Chinese traders who discovered and were particularly attracted, not only to goods; but tot the honesty of the natives of Zubu, and it was the ‘ideal safe harbor’ because of the protection in the east given by the Mactan Island. This was just an introduction of what we rediscovered during our recent stay in Cebu. […]

Lenovo VIBE S1 review


 Considerably, the Lenovo VIBE S1 is the perfect selfie camera phone in the Lenovo VIBE Series. Camera We have proven its depth and sharpness when we brought the VIBE S1 in our Sinulog Festival trip this January. We can say that it exceeded our expectation for the selfie camera mode in comparison with previous brands that we’ve reviewed so far. Also it passed in our night time low light photography when we took shots of an electronic music fest and fireworks display. There is a little if none of a noise and images are captured even on night mode condition. […]


Mad Dogs is a Hangover style in Belize


 I saw Mad Dogs first two episodes ahead of the US and Philippine premiere telecast, thanks to HOOQ TV who is bringing this action thriller series on video-on-demand platform. My first impression was it kinda looked like Hangover II where our boys in Mad Dogs were drawn to complicated matters arising from a murder of their best pal in Belize. A quick Google search and it pointed to a certain country in Central America bordered in between Mexico, Guatemala, and the Carribean Sea. Mad Dogs is the story of five friends who went to Belize on a purpose of vacation […]
