Local Showbiz Pinoy Soap Opera Queen, Judy Ann Santos – Agoncillo is back. The Queen is back on Television to star in teleserye anew as “Starla”. After a five-year hiatus, Judy Ann Santos retuned with teleserye under the direction of Onat Diaz and will be joined by Joem Bascon and Kathleen Hermosa along with other veteran actors. Though full details are not yet revealed.

STARLA said to replace the crime series time slots of Cardo Dalisay “Ang Probinsyano” who aired last September 2015. Wich I guess the series already reached its peak and time to end.


Goodbye Whitney Houston

For an avid fan, the death of the Queen of Pop Music Whitney Houston saddened me. She died on Saturday 02/12/2012 before the Grammy Awards. Whitney is known for the songs All at Once, Run To You, The Greatest Love of All, One Moment in Time. She made her acting debut as Rachel Marron with Kevin Costner with “The Bodyguard”. She influenced many singers such as Mariah Carey, and even here in the Philippines. Some of our Filipina singers tried to mimic her singing style. But because of the alleged drug addiction, she lost her career. Many fans have been disappointed with her because they noticed that her good voice had been damaged.

I just want to share this video Uploaded by  on Feb 12, 2012 on youtube.



Green Lantern and Cecon

Yesterday we watched the movie premiere of the Green Lantern co-sponsored by Cecon 500g chewable and Cecon Advance that will help improve your mental energy. Cecon Advance is rich in Vit B and Zinc, and since it’s high in Vitamins C, Cecon strengthens your immunity.


CAREDIVAS is the story of five gay givers based in Israel. Caring for the day and an all-out group Gay Divas at night in a small club. They also dreamed that one day will be able to perform at a big club in Tel Aviv.

This play is not only about character, being gay. It also reflects about how to struggle and live the Filipino gay or not in other areas to help for their loved ones. It also showed that each of them has a secret hiding in their lives. And the acceptance of who and what you truly love people. It also showed that love is open to all regardless of their cultural differences.

For all the artists who perform in every character, Congratulations! Thank you for meaningful work and a good story you have shared with each one of us.
