The indie film 1st Sem starring Lotlot de Leon, Darwin Yu, Miguel Bagtas, Sebastian Vargas & Allan Paule has been receiving recognition left and right. After the Best Picture nomination at the 2nd CineFilipino Filmfest, the film won Best Feature Film at the All Lights India International Film Festival. Lead actor Lotlot de Leon also received the Sole Acting Citation at the said film festival. Held at Hyderabad in India, the film festival gave the only acting citation in the entire festival for Lotlot’s “exceptional performance.” It was observed that it was the first time All Lights India International Film Festival awarded an actor. Apparently, Honorable Mention is usually given to another movie competing in the category. That’s not surprising. I had the chance to watch 1st Sem during a media screening and Lotlot shone through and through in the movie. The jury’s decision to award her for such exceptional ...

A scene in the music video Puso Kong Ito by Edward Benosa

Fast-rising artist Edward Benosa is definitely getting noticed with his performances. This time, the PMPC Star Awards for Music has nominated Edward’s music video Puso Kong Ito to this year’s Best Music Video category.

Why I want an OPPO F1s

OPPO F1s - Selfie Expert

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the OPPO F1s from blogger friends who attended the phone manufacturer’s events. Although satisfied with my current smartphones, I still can’t ignore the positive feedback. Curious to know what this new phone has that my 2 phones doesn’t, I checked out some reviews. Let me share with you why I want an OPPO F1s. Yep, the promise of 16MP front-facing camera is desirable, but I’m going beyond that. Don’t get me wrong. Of course, it’s great that OPPO F1s has a selfie cam with high megapixel count. But I’m not very much of a selfie guy. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may have noticed that there’s very few photos of me. When I’m looking for a smartphone I don’t just look at the camera. Of course, the 3GB RAM and octa-core 64-bit processor fitted in OPPO’s latest selfie ...

The bootcamp is a 3-day program which promises attendees fun and unique experiences and an opportunity to explore the outdoors and meet new friends. Of course, it’s aimed to help campers learn and rediscover themselves with the help of the speakers. The Detour Bootcamp 2016 speakers are from this country’s leading industries.

Now I try to catch 2 Broke  Girls when I have the chance. These are all ...
