THE INTERVIEW. And then boom, boom, boom...

Wrapping up 2014 with The Interview, the movie that we almost failed to see

 

 The Interview It wasn’t bad at all. Honestly, this is Seth Rogen‘s best role performance that we have seen. Not too cocky and annoying. The only person who’ll get pissed with The Interview will be Kim Jong-un. Don’t ask us why. You probably would have known it by now. And the only thing that will surely leave a bad taste in the mouth would be the scene where The Interview specifically ‘killed a real living person.’ Nobody ‘kills a real living person‘ on film. Not yet, until The Interview. That would be a tough job for the film’s production outfit and we won’t […]

WHAT A LAME REASONING. Really??? The Palace wants the MRT passengers to look for other modes of transportation?!

Really??? The Palace wants the MRT passengers to look for other modes of transportation?!

 

 Every week seems to have gone from bad to worst, and everyday is the baddest of them all. A few weeks ago, The Metro Rail Transit (MRT) already had it in the offing when the South-bound commute was temporarily closed from Shaw to EDSA-Taft Station. So from North Ave., the ride will only take you to Shaw. That happened on a Saturday late afternoon.  Then it happened one more time the following Monday.  And even days before that incident, the MRT trains suffered from an on and off technical difficulties and obviously, the paying passengers were the ones who got hassled. Just so […]

Sonny Angara believes that tourism is our nation’s hope to provide jobs especially to the less developed areas

 

 Sonny Angara believes that tourism is our nation’s hope to provide jobs especially to the less developed areas, like in the provinces. This came to light when we had the chance to ask his opinion of improving our airports in the country. “It’s been such a long time that we are debating for the need of new international and domestic airports. During my campaign sorties, I discovered that it’s hard to travel from one place to another because of limited flight choices bound from Manila,” Sonny said during our conversation. Angara has been taking direct commercial flights to provincial campaign […]
