Moira Dela Torre Made History as First OPM Artist in Philippine Music to Get 11 Platinum Awards

12:11:00 AM

It is now part of our history, the Philippine Musical history, as singer and songwriter Moira Dela Torre made a clear mark as the very first OPM artist to receive 11 platinum certificates from her successful hit songs. 



In a virtual bloggers conference, Moira Dela Torre joyfully shared her disbelief with her achievement, which is having a total of 11 platinum awards from three of her hit songs, the MALAYA - 8x platinum, IKAW AT AKO - 2x platinum, and PATAWAD - 1x platinum. According to Moira, she doesn't think that these things could happen even though we were in a pandemic situation.


  
"I'm so grateful at the same time this isn't just my recognition because I wouldn't have been able to do this without the people behind me. So I'm very honored and very grateful, and very shocked still," shared Moira. 

  

Moira thanked everyone who was with her during her journey. And also, during the conference that we asked if she had created any Christian Songs. She joyfully shared that she already did some, and one of it was a duet with Mr. Ogie Alcasid. Of course, Moira gave a little taste of that song. In these trying times, we all need to hold on to God, and Moira as a Christian is a model of that firm belief.

All of the achievements were presented to Moira as a surprise during the ASAP Natin To show.

Ginebra San Miguel Revealed Christelle Abello as 2021's Calendar Girl

6:01:00 PM

 

Are you one of the many avid followers and spectators of Ginebra San Miguel's yearly Calendar Girl Revelations? Well, if you are, that is great. Ginebra San Miguel, even though we're experiencing the pandemic, made sure that the tradition will still go on. And by doing the event online gave a different way of revealing this year's Calendar Girl. Actually, and I think no one really knew who was this year's Calendar Girl not until she was introduced to the public. I was surprised that when her audio airs without exposing her face and by the way she's answering is somehow similar to how our two beauty queens, Pia Wurtzback and Catriona Gray respond to a question.

So, who is the next calendar girl after Sanya Lopez? Well, she's a beauty queen, and I'm sure you won't get a chance to be part of the prestigious competition if you're not a beauty queen. So, to know her already, she is Christelle Abello, a fresh face, and a newcomer. She's a 26-year old model based in California, USA.

Just a few days ago through an online/virtual launching event, Ginebra San Miguel introduced Christelle Abello as the new image in the 2021 Calendar Girl of Ginabra San Miguel.

The 2021 edition of the Ginebra San Miguel calendar is very timely as it captures today’s “new normal” at home in six (6) different layouts. With the theme “Ganado sa Bahay,” the calendars feature Christelle being “ganado,” motivated and productive even amid the COVID-19 pandemic – working from home, honing her creativity and discovering new skills, and taking care of her body and well-being. 

  

“More than just a pretty face, our Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl for 2021 definitely personifies our latest campaign ‘One Ginebra Nation.’ We were not only charmed by her intelligence, but also by her optimism, her courage, her never-say-die spirit, her heart for others, and love for her kababayan. We feel that she best represents the brand and we are very happy to welcome Christelle to our Ginebra San Miguel family,” relates Ginebra San Miguel Inc. (GSMI) Sales and Marketing manager Allan Mercado.

As in the past, the Ginebra San Miguel calendar is considered as a stepping stone for up-and-coming artists and personalities.

For Christelle, being chosen as the next Ginebra San Miguel calendar girl is an opportunity of a lifetime. “I’m so thrilled. I’m so proud and honored to represent Ginebra San Miguel. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I’m so grateful to be a part of such an iconic and historical brand,” she says.

To prepare for her Ginebra San Miguel calendar girl shoot, Christelle made sure that she is both physically and mentally ready. “I already do a lot of weights and cardio workouts. I’ve become accustomed to that lifestyle not because I want to look good physically but also because I want to feel good mentally. And I think that’s really important especially at this time,” relates Christelle, who at the start of the pandemic put up a fundraising effort called “Kapit-bisig Tayo” to assist healthcare workers.


REVISITING HER ROOTS

Christelle is born to Filipino parents. Her father is from Kalibo, Aklan while her mother is from Silang, Cavite. She graduated with a degree in Communication from California State University San Marcos.

While she spent most of her life in the US, Christelle has always been in touch with her Filipino roots. “My mom heavily enforced Filipino culture and values at home. She wanted my sister and I to learn Tagalog, and what better way to learn it than through watching teleseryes and movies. So, I grew up watching KathNiel’s ‘Got to Believe,’ and ‘A Very Special Love’,” shares Christelle, who dreams of starring in her own teleserye or movie.

Christelle admits that the never-say-die story of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach also inspired her to pursue her other dream – to become a beauty queen. “The world of pageantry fascinated me so much because I witnessed phenomenal women and beautiful and confident women like Pia Wurtzbach who made a mark in this world. And they impelled me to say that I can do this too.”

“Back in the day, my dad would tell me stories about [Robert] Jaworski and that even if the team was falling behind in a PBA game, people would still cheer them on and were confident that they will come back strong and win the game because of their never-say-die attitude. I think Barangay Ginebra resonates with Filipinos so well with who we are as people, resilient despite the adversities that come our way,” shares Christelle. 

FAVORITE SCENE

Yes, our lovely calendar girl does have her favorite scene, and I was glad that my question during the virtual launch was related to her favorite. Christelle's favorite was the painting session scene or the Ganado sa Pagpipinta and I asked if she has painted before and what are the types of paintings that she does. According to her, "... I admit I'm not the best painter nor I paint as often but I do like to draw. I do like to sketch out every now and then. And honestly, I like to draw some anime from time to time. I'm a big fan of Avatar series..." 

So, there you go and she's Ganado sa Pagpipinta of anime characters. 


THE GINEBRA CALENDAR TRADITION


The Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl is a significant part of the brand’s 187-year history. Inspired by the classic US TV series “Charlie’s Angels,” the Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl promotion was started in 1988 and since then, the special merchandise has become a sought-after item among consumers and fans year after year.

Through the years, Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl had popular beauty queens, models, and actresses grace its calendars including Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach (2019), Arci Munoz (2018), Kim Domingo (2017), and Marian Rivera (2009 and 2014).

GSMI is the producer of the world’s largest selling gin Ginebra San Miguel. Other GSMI products include GSM Blue Light Gin, GSM Blue Mojito, GSM Blue Pomelo, GSM Blue Margarita, GSM Premium Gin, Don Enrique Mixkila, Antonov Vodka, Anejo Gold Rum, Vino Kulafu, and Primera Light Brandy.

Nominate A Frontliner that You Know with Share Hope with SM

12:42:00 AM

One of the many things I've learned during this pandemic is being thankful, not only because I am still alive but because there are people who are out there willing to sacrifice their safety just to help and serve individuals who are in need. Sometimes I feel that being grateful isn't enough to praise what they have done or what they are currently doing. 

Unfortunately, I'm not privileged enough to give them great gifts to reward them for their acts. So, I am constraint to whatever things that I can offer to them. Still, I'm thinking more about how to help or find other means to give something to them.

Recently, I was browsing through my news feeds, and I found out about this nominating thing on SM's page, and I got intrigued.

So, SM got this simple way of appreciating the hardworking frontliners, the Share Hope with SM, which will direct you by simply nominating these hardworking modern-day heroes. So whether they are healthcare workers, workers from the public health and safety, or workers from the essential products and services.

GMA Network Raises the Bar With It's Star-studded Drama Anthology ‘I Can See You’

11:08:00 PM

 

What comes to your mind when you read the phrase " I Can See You"? Probably, you'll freak out or something else. Or how about getting the sense that you are being watched? Or that you are not alone?  Well, you'll for sure get scared. 


But if you have ever felt like being spied upon whether by someone or something, more often than not, your instincts are correct. Researchers believe that humans are sensitive to gaze as it signals intimacy as well as danger; two of the things we need to pay attention to for our own well-being. 


Beginning September 28 (which it already started), GMA Network raises the bar with an exceptional and one-of-a-kind program featuring the biggest and brightest Kapuso stars in the drama anthology ‘I Can See You’ on the Telebabad block.

This unique drama anthology which highlights four mini-series – Love On The Balcony, High Rise Lovers, The Promise, and Truly. Madly. Deadly. – dwells on its common visual storytelling mnemonic device which is the use of a camera as a witness to the tales of love and mystery from everyday people; hence the title – I Can See You. 


  
The ground-breaking program gifts viewers with compelling, contemporary, and unique stories produced by four different teams in a remarkable four-week viewing experience.

In observance of anti-COVID-19 protocols alongside the Network’s precautionary measures, the cast and crew of the show underwent RT-PCR tests, lock-in tapings and strictly practiced government-mandated safety and health protocols on the set. 


Kick-starting the drama anthology is “Love On The Balcony” top-billed by Asia's Multimedia Star Alden Richards, Kapuso hunk Pancho Magno, and Kapuso leading Lady Jasmine Curtis-Smith. It tells the timely story of a wedding videographer, Gio (Alden), who crosses paths with a frontline nurse, Lea (Jasmine). Uninspired and creatively drained, Gio is encouraged by his business partner and friend Val (Pancho) to search for a potential fling during quarantine. After their unfortunate encounter, romance eventually blossoms between Gio and Lea amidst the pandemic. Is this the beginning of a beautiful chapter in their love story or is it just destiny’s way of putting people in our lives for a purpose?

Completing the cast are Denise Barbacena and Shyr Valdez. Love On The Balcony is directed by LA Madridejos which airs beginning September 28. 

  

Heating up primetime TV viewing on October 5 is the second installment of the series “High Rise Lovers” which stars Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe, actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez and multitalented Kapuso actor Tom Rodriguez. It follows the story of married couple Samantha (Lovi) and Luis (Tom) whose relationship dwindles as their opposing goals in life get the best of them. After moving into a new condominium unit, Samantha continues to strive for a big promotion at work while Luis, an unemployed contractor, is forced to accept a renovation job for another occupant – the mysterious and sultry Ysabel (Winwyn). Will Luis yield to the temptation of a new lover who comforts his bruised ego or will Samantha realize that her marriage is still worth saving?

Also starring in the episode are Teresa Loyzaga and Kenneth “Tetay” Ocampo. High Rise Lovers is under the helm of Monti Parungao. 

  

Bannered by talented Kapuso stars Andrea Torres, Yasmien Kurdi, Benjamin Alves and Paolo Contis, “The Promise” gives viewers more reasons to believe in the power of love this October 12. The story begins with a rich widowed man named Frank (Paolo) who loses his passion for life and became a recluse after losing his wife Clarisse (Yasmien) from an accident. When Jude (Benjamin), his cousin and right-hand man in the company, visits him in the lake house where he stays at, Frank takes an interest in the latter’s girlfriend Ivy (Andrea), an aspiring artist who is willing to do anything to take her family out of poverty.

Also playing an exciting role in this series is Maey Bautista. The Promise is directed by Zig Dulay.

Finally, set to bring mystery and romance is the last installment “Truly. Madly. Deadly.” headlined by Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo, versatile Kapuso actress Rhian Ramos, and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado premiering on October 19. Coleen (Jennylyn) is a professional woman who, after being ridiculed online for a scandal with a married man, moves out of the city and works in a remote resort where she meets the mysterious resident IT guy named Drew (Dennis). Life seems to be going well for the recovering Coleen until her best friend turned enemy Abby (Rhian) shows up and her past begins to haunt her once again. 

  
Joining the talented cast of this episode is Jhoana Marie Tan and with the special participation of Ruby Rodriguez. Truly. Madly. Deadly is directed by Jorron Lee Monroy.

Don’t miss out on GMA Network’s newest and much-awaited offering this year ‘I Can See You’ beginning September 28, right after Encantadia, on the Telebabad block.

A Satisfying Merienda Treat of Mang Inasal Palabok For Yourself and Your Family

10:45:00 PM

The Mang Inasal Palabok is proof of the synergy among the brands of the Jollibee Group, a winning practice that further reinforces the Jollibee Group’s commitment to continually satisfy the market with delicious and value-for-money food.

The Mang Inasal Palabok comes solo with price starting at Php59. It also has a Family Size version for 4 – 5 diners, priced at Php 199, and suitable for gatherings with officemates or with loved ones at home.

When those food cravings for merienda meals hit, especially now during quarantine, the Mang Inasal Palabok alongside other all-time favorites of Mang Inasal, can easily and quickly get delivered using GrabFood, FoodPanda, or LalaFood. Customers can also call their specific Mang Inasal stores or place their orders online through the Mang Inasal Facebook Messenger Chatbot, Jose.
