To The Top – GMA 7’s Boy Band Competition Show

To The Top Contestants

The search for the next boy band sensation in the Philippines is on. To The Top, GMA 7’s boy band competition show has been ongoing online via gmanetwork.com/tothetop. Over 100 hopefuls auditioned for the competition which were eventually trimmed down to 18. They had their first public appearance and live performance as they were presented to the press. Now, they’re ready as the show starts airing July 25. At the back of my mind, I was asking “Why have a boy band competition?” I then realized that although we have had our share of boy bands in the Philippines, I don’t think all of them has reached a level of success that’s groundbreaking. Some of them were formed to capitalize on their good looks, but not every member can sing. While there are groups who care fairly sing, they don’t have that X-Factor to catapult them to stardom.

Del Monte Kitchenomics Team

Del Monte Kitchenomics starts new season this July, still to be hosted by Chef Jackie Ang-Po and Carla Abellana. I can’t believe that the show has been on air for 30 years already. I remember my mom taking notes while watching the show and eventually serve it on our table. The new season will start airing on July 12 on GMA 7. We learned that viewers are in for an exciting season as the team behind the show has taken into consideration not just the moms, but basically everybody who needs to cook. There’s a growing trend of young professionals living on their own. In attempt to be practical, cooking food is the way to go. It’s also a healthy option compared to buying meals or having food delivery. Del Monte Kitchenomics has taken this into consideration for its new season with the mission of making cooking easy, fun and accessible to all types of cooks – whether ...

MMFF 2014: Kubot The Aswang Chronicles

Kubot The Aswang Chronicles Movie

It’s Christmastime and that means it’s the time for Filipino movies to dominate the cinemas in the Philippines from December 25 onwards. Yes, there’s no stopping the Metro Manila Film Festival 2014. And even though some of us have a not-so-good impression about the movies shown, there’s no denying that there are movies worth watching. I believe one of these movies is Kubot The Aswang Chronicles. With Dingdong Dantes in the lead, the movie picks up where TikTik left off. I have to admit I haven’t watched the first installment, but some blogger friends attest that it was good. Still skeptical? Watch the trailer first. Kubot, the Aswang – I love that “The Aswang Chronicles” presents what’s truly Filipino. Aswang is a Filipino folklore and learning more about it is worth the while. We all know about Kapre and Mananangal, but what do we know about Kubot? Kubot is a ...
