Anne Curtis for Bench Celebrity Scents

Anne Curtis for Bench Celebrity Scents

Anne Curtis is one of the bankable endorsers right now in the Philippines. People from all walks of life trust her name alone, looking at it from a different perspective, it is strengthening its course as a brand name itself. But she will get to that I am sure, soon.

5 Reasons Why You Should Watch A Secret Affair

A Secret Affair

First of all I would love to reiterate a disclaimer, I am a huge fan of Anne Curtis, my tweets and some of my blog entries are about her heck even my top post of all time is about her: The Sensational Anne Curtis BUT please do not mistake this entry a biased one. I am definitely not aiming for that.
Now that I have had that out of the way and I truly hope that it had settled your thoughts let me give you 5 reasons why you should watch A Secret Affair this coming October 24, 2012 and the rest of the show dates in whichever cinema is close to you.
1.Trailers are just snippets; they do not define or tell you the whole story of the movie. I agree and know how you feel when you watch trailers. I personally favor them as they are the so-called windows to the soul of movies kinda like that of the eyes are the windows to someone’s soul. But please do not mistake the trailer of A Secret Affair to another “mistress-driven-movie-plot” because it is not. Yes you may have associate…

10 Things/Places I Miss in UPLB (Yufie Elbi)

 University of the Philippines Los Banos(UPLB) (not my photo)

It has been about 7 years since I graduated from University of the Philippines Los Banos. I usually go back every December for our Varsity Team’s reunion (annual), sometimes for badminton pick up game with them as well or just hanging out. Today I stumble upon some pictures taken years ago while I was still studying, damn I am getting old. Haha! anyway here are the 10 things I miss in UPLB.
1.Freedom Park: I used to take summer classes and the park was always the place where thinking gets done as well as running around for the work out. My favorite time usually is when the cotton tree (I am not sure what the tree is really called sorry) bursts and the all the threads fly around the park and the green is covered with white looking like it snowed on a summer day. So beautiful.
2.Baker Hall: I know this has been converted to a museum but this is where hours of my weeknights and Friday afternoon were spent for training. It is wher…

My “Possible” Roadtrip Mix (Tape)

(not my artwork)
I still want to use the word “mixtape” even though I will end up putting up all these songs in one CD or in a thumb drive. Mixtape is what I grew up with. It was the coolest thing back then having most of your favorite songs in Side A and Side B. Imagine the fun (for kids these days, the horror) of rewinding and fast forwarding the cassette tape to jump a few songs to your favorite one.
There is no theme here just what has been on my playlist for a while. Imagine I have a C-60 or C-90 that could hold 24 songs (12 each side). Anyway here we go:
Side A:
“Running” Jessie Ware“Gimme Sympathy” Metric“Agustana” Boston“Big Jet Plane” Angus & Julia Stone“Wait It Out” Imogen Heap“No One’s Gonna Love You” Band of Horses“Be Ok” Ingrid Michaelson“Sweet Disposition” Temper Trap“Point Me At Lost Islands” Tired Pony“Happier” A Fine Frenzy“Keep Your Head Up” Ben Howard“Say Anything” Tristan Prettyman
Side B:
