MANILA, NOVEMBER 24, 2014 (MANILA BULLETIN) by Michael Joe T. Delizo - President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, together with other government officials, actually took time off from dealing with his many responsibilities as head of state to enjoy a dose of bossa nova at the Smart Araneta Coliseum over the weekend, courtesy of renowned Brazilian singer-songwriter Sergio Mendes.

Everyone deserves to unwind, even the country’s top leaders.

In photos circulating online, the president is seen enjoying the music with Senate President Franklin Drilon, Interior Sec. Manuel “Mar” Roxas, Budget Sec. Florencio “Butch” Abad, Environment Sec.

The president supposedly accepted reluctantly but with protest, to photo ops with several concertgoers after the show.

“Mas mahal ni pnoy si sergio mendes kesa sa mga kababayan nyang biktima ni Yolanda,” one said on Twiiter.

On Facebook, another added: “Pa relax relax lang. Hindi masama dyan kung ang mga importanteng responsibilidad ay ginagampanan. Sana nagkaroon din sya ng time para sa mga Yolanda survivors sa Tacloban.”

A reader responded to the post with a comment that partly read: “Wla naman problema ung presdnte nanonood xa ng concert kz kailangan nya dn mag relax. However masaklap kung napapabyaan nya ang mas importanting bagay na milyong pilipino ang apektado…”

Recall that the president also watched Mendes’ concert with radio and TV personality Grace Lee in 2012.

Nora, Vilma, Piolo, Sam headline Indie Bravo!-Fully Booked film fest
Bayani San Diego Jr. @inquirerdotnet Philippine Daily Inquirer 12:18 AM | Monday, November 17th, 2014
 


CONSIDERED among the best films of 2013, “Ekstra,” starring Vilma Santos (left), and “Ang Kwento ni Mabuti,” top-billed by Nora Aunor, will be shown on Nov. 29.

Micro-cinema is the new buzz word in the indie scene, said Vincent Nebrida, CineFilipino festival director.

“In New York, micro-cinemas— or art-house cinemas with an average of 60 seats— screen independent and foreign-language films,” Nebrida told the Inquirer.

Movies with meals

In Brooklyn, he added, certain bars and restaurants have become alternative viewing venues, and they serve drinks and meals on the side. (Teatrino in Greenhills has started a similar experiment—minus the food and drinks.)

The “Inquirer Indie Bravo!-Fully Booked Film Festival: The Best of Filipino Films 2013 Plus” will be held at the U-View in Fully Booked High Street, Bonifacio Global City, from Nov. 21 to Dec. 12.

The 60-seat U-View is an example of a micro-cinema. The Fully Booked marketing team explained why alternative venues should be encouraged: “Not all big cinemas can take on the full range of Filipino films. Smaller venues are growing around the Philippines. Such places facilitate the distribution and screening of indie films that may otherwise not see the light of day.”

The team recalled that U-View held successful screenings of Jerrold Tarog’s “Sana Dati” last year.

“The bookstore community consists of consumers who appreciate imaginative storytelling across mediums. And we want to continue supporting the local filmmaking community,” said Angel Yulo, events manager.

Indie film audiences and the bookstore’s regular market intersect. “Both groups are thinking and literate,” said Nebrida, one of the programmers consulted by fest organizers.

Not only in books

“Good stories are not limited to the pages of a book,” added Aimee Diego, ad and promo manager. “Some of the greatest stories are told via songs or films.”

Last year, Philippine cinema churned out a bumper crop of acclaimed, independently produced films—as can be gleaned from Inquirer’s consistent coverage of the indies. Developments in the local cinema scene are regularly reported in PDI’s Indie Bravo! section.

The bookstore acknowledged the vital role played by the Inquirer, with its Indie Bravo! advocacy, in popularizing nonformula films and screenings in alternative venues.

Beneficial

“Filmmakers, especially the new ones, need the kind of support that the Inquirer provides,” Diego and Yulo agreed. “It’s a beneficial partnership…filmmakers furnish content and media outlets give the sustenance needed in promoting awareness of the films.”

For the Inquirer Indie Bravo!-Fully Booked Film Festival, at least 35 films, culled from various local fests, will be screened.

Collaboration

Said Yulo: “Collaboration made this extensive lineup possible. We salute our partners

…the Film Development Council of the Philippines and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts for cosponsoring the event and providing select works from Sineng Pambansa and Cinema Rehiyon. We are grateful to the different festival directors, programmers and filmmakers of CineFilipino, Cinema One, Cinemalaya, Metro Manila Film Festival New Wave.”

The team specially thanked Nebrida “for helping us round up the programmers and filmmakers.”

‘Umbrella fest’

Filipino films that premiered in international film festivals are also in the lineup—including the opening film, Lav Diaz’s “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan” (Cannes, Un Certain Regard).

Described as an “umbrella festival” that celebrates the best of 2013, the Inquirer Indie Bravo!-Fully Booked fest is star-studded as well, featuring films top-billed by Nora Aunor (Mes de Guzman’s “Ang Kwento ni Mabuti,” from CineFilipino), Vilma Santos (Jeffrey Jeturian’s “Ekstra,” Cinemalaya), Piolo Pascual (Erik Matti’s “On the Job,” Cannes, Directors’ Fortnight), Sam Milby (Adolfo Alix Jr.’s “Death March,” Cannes, Un Certain Regard), Jasmine Curtis-Smith (Hannah Espia’s “Transit,” Cinemalaya), Angelica Panganiban (Alix’s “Ang Alamat ni China Doll,” Cinema One), Anita Linda (Elwood Perez’s “Otso,” Sineng Pambansa) and Agot Isidro (Alvin Yapan’s “Mga Anino ng Kahapon,” MMFF New Wave).

“Such variety shows the kind of year we had in 2013,” said the marketing team.

Little known things about Vic Sotto By Nickie Wang | Nov. 18, 2014 at 06:20pm


VIC SOTTO

VIC Sotto’s life has been open to the world but there are a few things that most Dabarkads don’t know about the 60 year-old TV host/comedian.

A ubiquitous figure on television with top-rating shows and a number of TV commercials, not a lot of people know how dedicated Bossing (as most fans call him) is to his craft and what motivates him to keep on making people entertained every single day.

“I’m a laid back person. I am very relaxed at work as if I am just enjoying surrounded by my peers in Eat Bulaga. I consider every show as a brand new show that’s why this program lasted this long. What I am saying is if you love what you are doing, you can hardly feel stressed out,” Vic told the entertainment media at a recent press conference.

True enough, when he entered the venue Vic greeted the press with a welcoming aura saying, “I’m seeing familiar faces,” and jested, “Is this the press con for My Big Bossing? Tara kwentuhan na lang tayo (come on, let’s just talk).”

Vic met with the entertainment press to talk about his latest endorsement. For the first time he agreed to endorse a real estate company that promotes smart and affordable real estate investments.

The host-comedian explained that the reason he’s endorsing Citi Global, the name of the real estate company, is due to the fact that they complement each other in a sense that they both have a deep sense of purpose. In the same way, when asked what encouraged the company to take Vic’s service, Citi Global’s Vice President Elizabeth To opened up: “When we were doing our research about Vic, we found out that he, together with Joey de Leon and Tito Sotto, had to work for six months without being paid just to keep Eat Bulaga running during its difficult year. We thought that Vic is really the right person because from that fact alone, we see how dedicated this man is.”

No Elsa in Disney on Ice?

With worldwide gross ticket sales of more than USD 1.2 billion, Frozen is considered the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time and the highest-grossing animation to date.

The film’s success transcends the commercial realm: young children across the globe are unusually obsessed with the film’s soundtrack “Let It Go;” Elsa doll and other Frozen merchandise are already dominating sales for the holiday shopping season; and just recently, Elsa the Snow Queen is listed as this year’s most popular Halloween costume among youngsters and adults.

Indeed, the popularity of Snow Queen Elsa, has taken the entire world by [hail]storm. But why is she isn’t part of the Disney on Ice production that fittingly suits the animated character?

At the media launch of Disney on Ice, which will be staged at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, scribes asked if there would be a chance that Frozen’s Elsa will be featured alongside Tangled’s Rapunzel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Princess and the Frog and Cinderella since her story has already been added as a segment in shows in the UK and US.

An official from Feld Entertainment, the company that brings Disney on Ice in Manila every year, said that they have encountered the same question numerous times. The official explained that the Disney on Ice shows are somewhere beyond 15 years and they do not have the resources to put up a new show because it entails extensive process.

“As you can imagine, we don’t have all the resources on the road to put up the show. We have to ship everything back to America to reformat the show. In doing that, it means that we have to put some shows off the road in other cities,” the official explained.

To avoid cancelling shows in other cities, Feld Entertainment has just launched a brand-new show that is touring the United States. It’s going to in Manila in two years time he confirmed.

“Next year, we haven’t announced it just yet, but we are adding a segment of Elsa in other shows. We are doing everything in our power to make sure that every country in the world experience the story of Elsa,” the official assured.

Meanwhile, for this year’s show audiences are invited to join Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and Goofy as they follow four of Disney’s most inspirational princesses on their adventures to fulfill their dreams in Feld Entertainment’s newest ice spectacular, Disney on Ice presents Dare to Dream. Show runs from on Dec. 25 to Jan. 4, 2015.

MANILA – Luis Manzano feels he and Angel Locsin do not need a pre-nuptial agreement if ever they decide to get married in the future.

In an interview with entertainment site Push, Manzano pointed out that Locsin even earns more than him.

“Hindi ko naman siya babalikan kung hindi ako sigurado sa kanya,” he said. “Kilala ko si Angel, definitely she’s not after money, mas maraming pera sa akin si Angel. I’m man enough to admit. Totoo naman eh. Sabi ko nga, malayo ang TF (talent fee) ng isang leading lady of that caliber, sa isang host. Napakalayo.”

Manzano added that that there’s no need for them to secure their individual properties when they tie the knot.

“Kunyari, 'yung TF niya sa TF namin, endorsement sa endorserment, ang layo. Nababalitaan ko ‘yon within the industry. Kasi si Angel ano eh -- kumbaga, the way I know her, she’s very logical na ‘Okay, ito yung pag-aari mo. Ito pag-aari ko.’”

Asked when they are finally getting married, Manzano said: “Siguro, engagement muna... But this is a big maybe ha, maybe next year.”

When that happens, Manzano said they only want a simple wedding ceremony attended by their loved ones and close friends.

“Gusto ko talaga, sobrang intimate lang ng wedding namin. Gusto ko church, siyempre. Iba kasi 'yung sanctity ng isang church wedding. But I respect her faith din naman kaya I can’t impose na sa church tayo. So kumbaga, that’s one of the things that we really need to talk about,” he said.

Vicki-Hayden: Why wedding is ‘on hold’ FUNFARE By Ricky Lo (The Philippine Star) | Updated November 22, 2014 - 12:00am 0 0 googleplus0 0


Dr. Vicki Belo and her sweetheart Hayden Kho help together in trimming the Christmas Tree, with their wishes and prayers sealed in the bells that hang around it.

Just because celebrity couples are getting married, it doesn’t mean that Dr. Vicki Belo and her long-time boyfriend Hayden Kho are “tempted” to follow suit. In fact, long before everybody started trying to outsmart everybody else in coming up with a “unique” style of proposing, Hayden had already done it in Dec. 2011 in Houston, Texas. It was the Mother of All Proposals secretly hatched by Hayden as a surprise for Vicki.

First, the wedding. Vicki deemed it wise to put it “on hold” because so many questions have been cropping up, which will be discussed in a while.

Now, the proposal.

It happened after Vicki delivered a talk at a medical conference in Houston. Hayden was with her on the trip, together with Vicki’s make-up artist who travels with her anywhere she goes. Vicki would soon discover why Hayden was in a tizzy, always busy with the computer that he kept away from Vicki.

“I thought he was having problems again,” Vicki told Funfare, “and I was a bit concerned. It turned out that he was cooking up a big surprise.”

Yes, the proposal.

Initially, Hayden wanted to do it in Morocco (that’s why he was arranging the side trip there via the computer) which was the only place on earth that Vicki had not been to, until the Houston trip changed Hayden’s “secret” plan.

On the night of Hayden’s proposal, he invited the still unsuspecting Vicki to check out an aquarium.

“Suddenly,” recalled Vicki, “I saw Hayden in the aquarium holding a card with the words ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ written on it. No wonder he briefly disappeared from beside me. When I turned again, he was beside me na and a scuba diver appeared in the aquarium holding another card with a ‘SAY YES’ on it.”

Then, Hayden hired an expensive car to drive them around the city which was aglow with Christmas decors. It was a cold December, remember, so the “bedroom weather” was conducive to romance. More surprises for Vicki.

“I watched as every post that lined the streets would light up as we passed by,” continued Vicki. “Nakakaaliw! I would learn that Hayden had arranged it with the City Hall which gladly gave him the go-signal.”

That memorable night was capped by Hayden slipping an engagement ring into Vicki’s dainty finger, the same one that once wore a ring given to her by ex-husband Atom Henares (who has remained good friends with Vicki who has two children by him, Cristalle and Quark, now a director taking up advanced courses in film in the US).

“I’m not wearing the ring,” Vicki said with a tone of sadness, referring to the one given to him by Hayden (who refused to reveal how much it cost him). “There are so many questions kasi, eh.”

That is, concerning the wedding that Vicki has decided to unilaterally put “on hold,” never mind if Hayden is ready, willing and able to “commit” to it, going as far as asking Atom to help him draw up a pre-nup agreement.

Explained Vicki, “I’ve been through a marriage at nasunog na nga ako. I was young when Atom and I got married, and look what happened. Hayden is relatively young at marami pa siyang hindi alam tungkol sa marriage, he’s not fully aware of what marriage entails.”

Vicki and Atom were together for 15 years (four years going steady and 11 years married). When their marriage hit the rocks, Vicki fell in love with Joey Santos (head of House of Obagi, or HOO) and they lived-in for 16 years. After she and Joey broke up, Hayden came into Vicki’s life as if a gift from nowhere, an answered prayer. They’ve been together for 11 years which have been marked by trials but Vicki never abandoned Hayden (hindi niya iniwan sa ere, as the expression aptly puts it) even during the darkest period in his life (if you know what that means).

Hayden has emerged from that “dark period” a changed man, spiritually renewed and recharged after he turned Christian, guided by world-famous spiritual counselors. Hayden is said to take himself so seriously that he observes celibacy (or, as Kris Aquino would put it, “being chaste”).

Also a Christian, Vicki has been faithful to the same “rule,” claiming that the farthest that she and Hayden would go was kiss gently on the cheeks and hold hands, never beyond that. Vicki said that when they travel, she and her makeup artist stay in one room and Hayden in a separate room.

The age-gap is a bit worrisome, too.

“Hayden is 34,” said Vicki. “When I turn 60, he will be 37. I think he won’t have the same mindset by then. So even if he believes that he’s ready for marriage, I really doubt it,” not even if Hayden has been vocal about his desire to have a baby with Vicki. So Vicki is telling Hayden to think things over — “You know, isip-isp muna. Isipin nang mabuti.”

Meanwhile, Vicki’s friend Marian Rivera and her sweetheart Dingdong Dantes will beat Vicki and Hayden to the altar as they get married on Dec. 30 at the Immaculate Conception Church (in Cubao, Quezon City), with Vicki as one of the principal sponsors. Asked what her wedding gift to Marian and Dingdong is, Vicki said, “The honeymoon. I’m suggesting Africa but then, the Ebola scare. I will let them choose where they want to go.”

As the year winds up, Vicki faces a big dilemma: Get married or let Hayden go.

“It’s a hard decision to make,” agreed Vicki.

John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga in Home Sweetie Home

MANILA, Philippines - In tonight’s episode of the sitcom Home Sweetie Home, Julie (Toni Gonzaga) asks for sales tips from her husband Romeo (John Lloyd Cruz) when she was given a side job to sell condo units. Romeo tells Julie to simply use her charm to convince hesitant buyers.

When Romeo discovers that Julie’s hesitant client is a hunk, he gets jealous. Conflict arises when Julie points out that Romeo also uses his charm to seal business deals with female clients.

Uh-oh. Is there trouble in paradise?

Home Sweetie Home is a Philippine situational comedy on ABS-CBN starring John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga.

The show tackles a newly married couple's lives, and their ways to address the needs of a growing typical Filipino household. It first aired on January 5, 2014 on ABS-CBN, and worldwide on TFC.

The show is a reunion project for Cruz and Gonzaga. Previously, they both starred in My Amnesia Girl, a Star Cinema romance comedy film, which premiered in 2010.

Home Sweetie Home is the story of Romeo (John Lloyd Cruz) and Julie (Toni Gonzaga), who live together with the latter's family under one roof.

Julie's mother (Sandy Andolong) undoubtedly does not favor Romeo as her son-in-law because of his reputation as a ladies man, and prefers Jay-Jay (Jason Gainza) whom she considers fit for her daughter, seeing him as responsible.

Still, the two decided to marry each other. However, in turn, Romeo has to deal with Julie's family in the best way he knows how.

Home Sweetie Home airs Saturday nights at 6 on ABS-CBN.
