MISS UNIVERSE 2012:Miss USA Wins

MISS UNIVERSE 2012: Miss USA Wins

Thank you Jory Rivera for the pictures. From left to Right, Miss Shamcey Supsup, Janine Tugonon, Venus Raj and Jory Rivera in Las Vegas, Nevada right after the pageant.

 Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Miss Janine Tugonon with Jory Rivera.                           

Our very own Miss Philippines Janine Mari Tugonon placed first runner up in the Miss Universe pageant held Wednesday (US time) in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States of America. Miss USA Olivia Culpo won the title of Miss Universe 2012.

Top Five were: Philippines, Australia, Brazil, United States, and Venezuela.

During the Question and Answer portion, renowned photographer Nigel Barker asked Tugonon a question from Twitter: “As a global ambassador, do you think speaking English should be a prerequisite to being Miss Universe?”

Tugonon answered, “Language isn’t the only important thing. As long as you can influence and inspire other people, as long as you have a strong mind, spirit, you can be Miss Universe.” 

Janine Tugonon
called Miss Universe “a battle of a lifetime,” noting that Filipinos are
inherently fond of beauty pageants. “If I make it here, I feel that I
can give them hope, and it’s an early Christmas gift to them,”
she said. 

Congratulations Janine!

ADVISORY: EDSA Bus Segregation Scheme

ADVISORY: EDSA Bus Segregation Scheme started last Tuesday, December 18, 2012.  It causes a lot of confusion not only among the commuters but also among confused bus drivers. With the new scheme there are designated bus stops for every bus, depending on their classification whether Bus A, B or C. Don’t fret it is really as easy as ABC. So read on….

We’ll make this simple. Let’s check first the picture/ illustration below. Copy of which is plastered on each bus. If you are in a hurry, say for example, coming from Kamuning, you’re going to POEA then you better ride at Bus B, because in just 3 stops you’ll be at POEA na.

 
Bus A Designated Bus Stops: Southbound
( Coming from (for example) Trinoma to Makati)

  • Ermin Garcia
  • Arayat Cubao
  • VV Soliven
  • Connecticut 
  • Shaw/ Starmall
  • Guadalupe
  • Buendia
  • Magallanes

Bus A Designated Bus Stops: Northbound 
( Coming from Magallanes to Cubao)  

  •  Magallanes
  •  Buendia
  •  Guadalupe 
  •  Shaw Blvd.
  •  SM Megamall
  •  Boni Serrano 
  •  Cubao Farmers
  •  Ermin Garcia

Bus B Designated Bus Stops: Southbound
( Coming from Trinoma to Makati)

  • Kamuning
  • Monte De Piedad
  • Main Avenue
  • POEA Ortigas
  • Pioneer/Boni
  • Estrella
  • Ayala Avenue

Bus B Designated Bus Stops: Northbound
( Coming from Magallanes to Cubao) 

  • Ayala Avenue
  • Estrella
  • Pioneer/Boni
  • SM Megamall
  • Ortigas Avenue
  • Main Avenue
  • Baliwag/ 5 Star

Bus C Stop on all Designated Bus Stops: Southbound 

  • Kamuning
  • Ermin Garcia
  • Monte De Piedad
  • Arayat Cubao
  • Main Avenue
  • VV Soliven
  • Connecticut 
  • POEA Ortigas
  • Shaw/ Starmall
  • Pioneer/Boni
  • Guadalupe
  • Estrella
  • Buendia
  • Ayala Avenue
  • Magallanes

Bus C Stop on all Designated Bus Stops:Northbound

  •  Magallanes
  •  Ayala Avenue
  •  Buendia Avenue
  •  Estrella
  •  Guadalupe 
  •  Pioneer/Boni
  •  Shaw Blvd.
  •  SM Megamall
  •  Ortigas Avenue
  •  Boni Serrano 
  •  Main Avenue
  •  Cubao Farmers
  •  Baliwag/5 Star
  •  Ermin Garcia

Tip: Bus A stop only at Bus A designated bus stops. Bus B stop at designated bus B stops. Bus C that stop on all designated Bus stops. Because if you get confused, it might take you longer before you reach your destination, so I think it is better if you check the chart before hopping on the next bus. Be Wa-is! Have a merry Christmas people!

Si Agimat si Enteng Kabisote at si Ako: Showing on December 25, 2012

Si Agimat si Enteng Kabisote at si Ako: Showing on December 25, 2012

Last Monday, I was invited by Faye and Melai to the blogger’s conference of SI
AGIMAT, SI ENTENG KABISOTE AT AKO
. Bossing Vic Sotto gamely answered all the questions thrown at him by the bloggers. Well, he had no choice he’s the only one present among the stars of the movie during the Blogger’s conference.( Lol! ) He is truly an adorable person. He confirmed that for the float alone, the producers spent 1 million, so you can just imagine, how much is the budget for the movie. So, don’t you miss the float parade scheduled on December 23, 2012. And the movie itself which will be shown on December 25, 2012. 

The
story begins with the establishment of the three different worlds
apart, bound to meet for an adventure like no other – the humble
family-oriented story of ENTENG KABISOTE played by top comedian VIC SOTTO. 

Enteng Kabisote is a low-profile
technician married to the beautiful Fairy Princess of Encantasia,
FAYE (GWEN ZAMORA).

 
The battles of the AGIMAT (RAMON “BONG”
REVILLA, JR.), the brave village Warrior Hero of Amuleto;
And the
last but not the least high tech-yuppie Kingdom of Diwatara ruled by Princess ANGELINA
KALINISAN-ORTEZA (JUDY ANN SANTOS), also known in the human world as
“AKO,” where she leads an environmental advocacy organization. Uhu, yun pala ang meaning ng AKO lol.
                                                         
From
the initial installment “Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote” in 2010,
the friendship and partnership of Enteng and Agimat continues. From
an ‘eligible bachelor’ Hero, Agimat now strives to apply all his
learning from Enteng and Faye as he himself tries to start his own
family with wife, also an Amuleto warrior, SAMARA (SAM PINTO). The
fun levels up as Aiza brings Angelina and her comic modern Fairy
sidekicks Pink Kapre CHE (John Lapus), Winged Horse SOL (Yassi
Pressman) and Computer-wiz Dwarf CHICHAY (Ryzza Mae Dizon), into the
lives of the Kabisote’s and the Amuleto couple.

As
the fun triples, so as the adventure and thrill as they are
confronted with high-tech and primitive villains from somewhere
totally out of their worlds: cannibal tribes of the Tokatoks and
filthy alien monsters from other planet. Witness unparalleled battle
stunts set in the Philippines’ never-before-seen destinations as
Agimat, equipped with his one-of-a-kind swordsmanship, Enteng and his
iconic comic fighting style and Princess Angelina, in her Mystical
Bird alter ego wins the battle of good over evil.
Enteng
movie as it has always been known, values family, marriage,
friendship, responsibility, forgiveness, love and respect and the
protection of the one and only Mother Earth. Si Agimat, Si Enteng
Kabisote at Ako, is a rollercoaster ride of drama, action, magic,
visual effects, production design, cinematography and an unlimited
fun and laughter for everyone.

MARRIOT MANILA: Turkey For Take Out

 MARRIOT MANILA: Turkey For Take Out
There’s simply nothing like a
perfectly roasted turkey for the family during special occasions. So this Christmas, serve this
classic centerpiece fuss-free by leaving the job to our chefs. And at
Marriott Manila, we also bring the same commanding
presence on your very own holiday table with our Turkey to Fly. There’s
nothing petite about this hunk of meat, from the good bones that give
it stature to the perfectly marbled flesh and skin in the steer laden
with giblet gravy. For only P7,500 net bring
home this package that can satisfy a family of ten and includes classic
accompaniments from the freshest lettuce salad with Italian dressing,
potato salad, buttered mashed potato, sautéed green bean bacon, and
baked pumpkin. While these fixins already provide
the robust flavors, the two loaves of fresh-from-the-oven corn bread is
an equally marvelous pair–no one at the table will miss it with the
turkey for sure! Since its executive chef Meik Brammer’s great hope that
this package leaves anyone happier, save room
for some apple and pumpkin pies. Oven baked and stuffed nothing but the
goodness of all-natural fillings, its gentle sweetness and homemade
charm make them a perfect foil for the Christmas feast.
Please call to order and allow 48 hours before pick
up at the Java+. To know more about Marriott Manila festive season
offerings, call 988-9980.
