How I Finally Found The OPPO F3 Sarah Geronimo Limited Edition Smartphone

 

 Life’s lesson that Finally Found Someone showed us, if it’s meant to be yours, then it’s meant to be. A few days ago I was a part of an event raffle and the set-up was to draw up stub from a bowl with corresponding prizes on it. With only three stubs left, I picked up a stub that says “I won P1000 gift certificate from  a clothing brand.” Not bad. But you know what? The remaining two stubs had the major prizes. Two brand new flagship smartphones were drawn to two fellow media who won the phones. I was happy […]

New Wave Night with China Crisis and Peter Coyle

 

 My growing up years are in between the 80s and the 90s, hence I got exposed to new wave music at the age of five. My biggest influencers happen to be the two sons of my mom’s best friend, who I remember back in the day are big fans of new wave bands, had huge posters of their idols in their bedrooms, collected their vinyl records, and maintained the “tsunami wave” hair 24/7. I missed the previous China Crisis Manila concert, so I promised myself I’ll make time for the repeat this year. The timing was even perfect because they’re […]

Unlimited Possibilities Unveiled From The New Moto Z2 Play

 

 It’s like going on a trip down to memory lane whenever we hear the brand name Motorola. Who would have forgotten the first brand of cellphone (not smartphone) which introduces the first flip phone under the model Razr back in 2004? A way too early for the smartphone era. The sleek Razr is the lightest and had a slender feel to touch plus it’s really an eye-catching device back in the early 2000s. Jumping to the present, Motorola continues to strengthen its position in the Philippine market with the announcement of a new addition to its Moto Z family with the all […]

 Still hungover from Spider-Man: Homecoming because it is really a fantastic movie. Tom Holland’s gymnastic skills proved to be a great contribution to his webslinger’s character stunts.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Is The Best Friendly Neighborhood Movie Ever

 

 Okay. Tobey Maguire’s webslinger paid attention closest to the costume of the Amazing Spider-Man but what we can say more to Tom Holland’s version is the childhood feel that resonates with the look of Queens’ friendly neighborhood superhero in this film franchise from what it is in the cartoon and comic book. Tobey was the closest Spider-Man we had until Tom came along. Watching Spider-Man: Homecoming makes you feel drawn into the cartoon and comic book nostalgia. Even celebrity host and entrepreneur RJ Ledesma noticed interesting similarities to Spider-Man: Homecoming from its cartoon and comic book counterpart. “There were two […]

Rivermaya Is Back With A Heavy Rock N’ Roll Feels Single ‘Manila’

 

 Thanks to Azrael, I woke up to the sound of the ‘new’ Rivermaya. Heavy with the rock n’ roll feels, it looks like the Filipino rock band has finally ‘found’ its right place back once again. For more than 23 years, Rivermaya has been currently moving in circles with different lineup since frontman Bamboo Mañalac departed from the band in 1998. The unexpected departure paved the way for Rico Blanco to assume the primary vocals with remaining member Mark Escueta. Perf de Castro and Nathan Azarcon were replaced by Kakoy Legaspi, Mike Elgar, and Japs Sergio in 2001. Japs penned […]

We became more curious about her when we were told that she was also a Filipina. Jessica Cabili, import goalkeeper for Ramas, is also a member of the Philippine Women’s National Hockey Team. “A friend of mine recommended me to […]
