Let’s join Chef Lau’s Dinner Party!


   Chef Rolando Laudico, poplarly known as Chef Lau, celebrity chef and owner of Bistro Filipino together with Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief (CSPR) is throwing a dinner party!! It's a sensitivity pain-free party and here he will  share and celebrate his success over tooth-sensitivity with Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief.

This dinner party is really exclusive! I want to get in! Why? Not just because of blogging rights (get it? bragging rights? haha! ) . Aside from the fact that I'll have a chance to taste Chef Lau's dishes (which I'm excited to do! Since I'm watching Junior Master Chef and I already know his cooking styles and ingenuity) , I also want to hear a "Chef's tale"  about tooth sensitivity. Aren't you curious like me? Imagine, like when you are a judge for a cooking show, you've got to taste a lot! Whether it's a hot soup or a freezing (yummy) ice cream! And oh, not to mention an ice-cold water! So see? Tooth sensitivity can be a hindrance to judging. Good thing there's Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief for Chef Lau!

   My personal experience is way back when I was still in grade school. My aunt used to sell gallons of rejected ice creams (those that melted and the sugar had settled). Whenever my father goes to their place, he brings home not one, not two, but 4-6 different flavors of ice cream gallons !!! That time I would eat ice cream for dessert and merienda non-stop! And then I just felt tooth-sensitivity or much know as "pangingilo"  in my two front teeth. Since I can't stop eating ice cream (if you were me, I know you can't too! ), my parents recommend me to use a sensitive relief toothpaste that can ease my problem.

  Until know, I love to drink brewed tea and frappe and I got to enjoy these treats without worrying about pain! Try brushing using Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief before eating!



"Tooth sensitivity is a common name for Dentine Hypersensitivity. In Filipino, it is referred to as “pangingilo.” When a hot, cold, sweet or very acidic food or drink causes a short, sharp discomfort on your teeth, then you may have sensitive teeth. 

If you’re suffering from tooth sensitivity, try the latest breakthrough from Colgate® -- Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® Toothpaste! It provides Instant* Relief and Lasting Protection against tooth sensitivity. 

Simply massage a small amount on the sensitive tooth for 1 minute and enjoy Instant relief to sensitive teeth. With regular, twice daily use, it builds a lasting barrier that acts like a protective seal against sensitivity. "
 -(chefsdinnerparty.com)




Hot or cold? Just taste everything! Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief can handle the sensitivity! Bye pangigilo!!!



Watch a "Chef's Tale"!! 





What about you? Tell me your story!

Love,

Eiga Sai:Japanese Film Festival 2012

  Hello Charmed Girls!

It's just a fresh, sizzling post straight from the UP Film Institute! I just got home from watching a movie of course! What's more? It's FREE!!!!!



   I've just discovered Eiga Sai: Japanese Film Festival 201 from Nana's blog (pursuitofnana.blogspot.com) and became interested to it because one of the screening venue is at UP Film Institute so we just went there a while ago after our classes and the thing is the admission is FREE!!! It was a great start-up for the long weekend especially the movie that we watched was really fun and light.

About the movie, we watched "Happy Flight". Here's the synopsis.





It was our pick actually, among the other movies offered, plus the screening schedule is so perfect. And it will only be shown once in UP FI. We had the witty choice, right? 







The screening time is 4:30pm, according to Nana's blog, we should at least go there 30mins earlier  since it's a first-come first-served basis.






I came here with KMae, she's a freshie but we are of the same batch since she started her college year from other school but she transferred here in UP in a different course so she is considered a freshie. Luckily she agreed to accompany me!




  Happy Flight is an aviation movie. Here you will see the how the airline flights go, not only inside the plane itself but also the mechanics, the airport officers, the weather forecasters, the pilot, the stewardesses(both cabin and land), and also the bird boy (the one who shoots the birds to avoid engine problems in the plane)! It was a thrilling (the landing-due-to-bad-weather-and-first-hand-pilot scene!), humorous (Each of the characters has a colorful story, so what do you expect? :D ) , informative (I was totally awed on how the whole airline sectors work just to secure a safe flight!)  movie that also tells (airline) life lessons.
I totally recommend this for all ages!

We had a fun,relaxing night! There were a lot of available seats in UP FI! Why don't you visit? Sit back and watch. :)


See you!

Love,

MoMo

ZALORA: Fashion Fights the Flood

Hello Charmed Girls!

   Just yesterday I went to our church's relief operations where we packed a lot of relief goods. It was my first time to join relief operations like these, because I just usually see that on TV and I can't believe I really tried it myself! The feeling that every bag you pack helps one family and all you have to do is to put 4 packs of noodles and tie the bag four times to do that. Such a great feeling. Well, a lot more because I went there with my CB friends and my cousin! Then after, my cousin, Ivan treated me dinner! That's how fun it is!

This Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012, ZALORA will have its fashion fundraising event entitled ZALORA: Fashion Fights the Flood at the Sky Lounge, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It will be participated by some brands that also donated some goods for the event. Also KC Concepcion will be selling some of her items from her wardrobe.





Can't make it? No problem! Anyone can support by donating through ZALORA from these links!


Links to donations:
For Php 500 donation: http://www.zalora.com.ph/Zalora-Donation-P-500-58135.htm

You can also show your support by contributing P250 entrance fee at the door.

Hope you can join this event too!

FAVORDEAL.COM International Giveaway!

Accessories can make or break an outfit.
That's a fact. Making sure that you match your outfit with the perfect type of accessories is really really important. First thing you should look at is your body type. Like clothes, we also match accessories with our own body type. One important rule in fashion is to emphasize your assets and to hide your flaws. In using accessories, we should consider what are our assets that we want to emphasize. 

Like for example, if you think you have a nice neck and pretty collar bones, I suggest you flaunt that by not wearing any necklace at all. Instead you could wear dangling earrings to draw the attention from your face down to your neck. Another one, if you want to look a little taller, I suggest you wear long necklaces because those create an illusion of height. 

Also remember to choose a point of focus for your accessories. You can choose to focus your accessories in your upper body, meaning you'll wear earrings and/or necklaces; in the middle, meaning you'll wear bracelets/bangles and/or rings; and in you lower body, meaning you'll wear long necklaces or anklets. 

Let me share my own choice. For me, since I'm a medium sized girl (that means my height and weight are of average measure), my point of focus could be anywhere (upper, middle or lower body) but I prefer to wear bangles/bracelets and rings (middle body). I'm very fond of accessories. As a matter of fact, I don't go out without even just one accessory. 

So, you know girls, I'm not really good at relating or changing topics when it comes to write-ups like this, so I'm going to tell it to you straight. :))
We have a new sponsor and we are very glad to have them with us. We're glad to give you FAVORDEAL.COM!

Noli Me Tangere:The Opera(Experience plus Q&A with the cast!!)

   I will never forget what happened last Saturday, July 21. It was raining cats and dogs and I was just walking to Palma Hall to watch Noli Me Tangere. But the rains just excite me more, and make me more eager to watch the first Dulaang UP play I will ever watch in the history of my UP life. I'm hearing great reviews from other students that the Dulaang UP plays were very good and amazing! So my expectation just got higher and higher 'til I was inside the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, which can be found at the 2nd floor of Palma Hall, and waiting for the play to start.


Nuff of the formality! Okay, so excited talaga ako! Alam mo 'yon, Noli Me Tangere, the critically acclaimed novel of Dr.Rizal tapos Opera pa? In case you don't know, I'm singing too. My mom studied Music in her college years,she loves classics . I think sa kanya ko namana kahit kaunti? Haha! I loved music, not only pop songs but also classics and opera, like Broadway musicals! Na-appreciate ko talaga ang Opera version ng Noli.
  











So then I was seated at the 2nd row. So close I can really see the actors and actresses, their emotions and feelings. They are like professionals, even though some are just young opera singers. I really loved the moment of Crisostomo Ibarra and Maria Clara during the Suyuan sa Asotea part where they exchanged greetings and expressed how they miss each other.  Nakakatuwa rin makita ang ligawan /suyuan noong unang panahon!Nakakakilig!! The part that made my cry was when Ibarra was about to leave Maria Clara. Remember, tumakas lang siya kasama si Elias ngunit nagpaalam pa rin siya kay Maria Clara upang sabihin lamang na pinapalaya na niya ito sa kaniyang pangako sa kanyang ina na aalagaan nila ang isa't isa hanggang kamatayan; Sinabi ni Crisostomo na maari na siyang mag-asawa ng iba. Sinabi naman ni Maria Clara na limutin na siya nito. And then Elias came and said "Andyan na ang mga gwardya-sibil!". When Crisostomo was about to leave, he kissed the hand of Maria Clara,who did not look back. And Elias and Crisostomo left, and after that we heard gunshots, "Crisostomo!!!", Maria Clara wailed. So heart felt.


Can we forget Sisa? Siya ata ang star sa novel na ito. Sisa represents the Philippines;magpagparaya, mapagmahal at matiisin. Her moment where she was crazy, looking for Basilio and Crispin, sent me shivers as she sang melodiously while dancing and wandering around the stage singing high-pitched notes! "That was hard!", I think.Really, kailangan mo ng malakas na stamina for you to sustain that energy. A round of applause from the audience after that.


Everybody in the play did great! Padre Damaso, Padre Salvi, Pilosopo Tasyo, Donya Victorina and her husband Don Tiburcio, Tiya Isabel and Kapitan Tyago, Basilio and Crispin and the whole cast! They are so in character. Wala kang mapapansin na iba. Kahit na wala sa kanila 'yong focus ng scene umaarte pa rin sila! And they are all great singers! Another big hand for all of you!!!


    Whew! After the play I was doubting whether I would leave or stay to congratulate them. Ang ginawa ko? I approached Ms. Camille Lopez-Molina, the musical director and told her it was a pleasure to watch a DUP play for the first time! And we took picture!! Sabi nga niya " Sure ka? Magpapapicture ka sa akin?".  For me, the first persons to acknowledge were the people behind it. I was lucky kasi pinayagan niya akong makapakinig sa Q&A ng isang drama club from one school that also watched the play. Wow, para akong may backstage pass!Here are some questions and their answers to them:
  




Me with Ms. Camille Lopez-Molina

Q: How do you budget your time? Like how do you study and practice at the same time?
Sisa(Jean Judith Javier): It's all about time management. You just have to balance out everything. For me, discipline is important.
A(I forgot from whom): You have to sacrifice. For the love of what you are doing. For me, I really love acting so I sacrificed everything. And now, it was being paid off.


Q: What's your preparation for the play?
Ms. Camille Molina: Remember it's a restaging, so it's just like the first. We started the auditions last June (last year) and we had almost five months of practice; that includes singing, acting, individual workshops and group workshops.
Don Tiburcio: Before the play, we vocalize then we make everyone run around to increase our stamina. The adrenalin rush, it will boost our energy on stage.


Q: How do you keep your voice in good condition?
Maria Clara(Iona Ventoclla): Hydrate! Drink lots of water!
Ms. Camille Molina: Sleep! Sleep is important. You can practice all day but in the end you have to rest, you have to sleep.
Tiya Isabel: Don't drink[alcoholic drinks]. Don't smoke.


Q: What are your adjustments for this play?
Crisostomo Ibarra(Ivan Niccolo Nery): Like for me, I'm actually a singer, not an actor so I have to learn how to act for me to do well.
Ms.Camille Molina: Some of them are not portraying the character of their age, like [the man who portray] Tasyo who is only 21 years old. He must know how to act and speak like an old man.


Q: How can you be still in character? Or how do you absorb it?
Tiya Isabel: You have to research your character. Kung ano 'yong character niya then you should be like that too.
A(I forgot from whom): You just have to love what you are doing. If you take it by heart then it will come out naturally. It has to be organic. Madali kasing mapansin ng audience kapag hindi organic ang acting.




While I was watching all of the cast listening and answering the questions, my stomach is turning and my legs are shaking for excitement to have a close contact to them!! ( Feeling close ako eh! Haha! ). It’s the funny and exciting thing, right? Seeing them not in character, how they interact in real life…. Haaay… Pinakaaabangan natin 'yong magsalita sila without their lines. Pwede na talaga akong maging stalker-slash-paparazzo-slash-intrigera!






Here's my moment with Ibarra and Maria Clara:
  
Me with Ivan Niccolo Nery(Crisostomo Ibarra) and Iona Ventocilla(Maria Clara)


 Shhhh!! I had a crush to one of the cast… the guy who portrayed Antonio Linares… So sad I didn't have the chance to take picture with him :(( He's so handsome and cute pa naman!!! Haha XD


Everybody wants to have pic with Sisa! She's really a good actress and singer.
  


Sisa( Jean Judith Javier) with a student
Be sure to watch the plays of Dulaang UP. I will post the upcoming shows here. I promise you won't regret watching their plays. Sulit ang ticket! And maybe you will have a chance to have a blogger bonding with us! 'Til next!






**Interview conducted by the students of Assumption. Question and answers  and the person who answered  may not be accurately the same as it is. 


Love,

Drop Dead Gorgeous Grand Launch!




I'm really grateful to become part of DDG Magazine. Knowing how gorgeous the DDG models and the venue of its Grand Launch which was held in Prive Luxury Club at The Fort Strip, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig last Thursday, it's really my pleasure be part of the family of DDG. Most of all because the first issue features ME and AIMEE under the FEATURED BLOGGER section!! With that I want to thank Ms. Apple Hollin, Editor in Chief of DDG Mag, for giving us this opportunity.So when I was invited to the launching, I never missed the chance!

One of my vain shots! Haha! You can't blame me! The place is really convenient for photo shoots! More info about my outfit here.








Margaret and me(striking a vain pose again lol!)

Margaret is a blogger from All Loving Chic. I also invited her to cover the event! It's my first time to meet her! My first look at her? She's a sophisticated cutie!

Me, Ms. Enz Occeña and Margaret

Ms. Enz Occeña is the founder of DDG. She just started it as a FB group before to make friends with other girls. Now it has grown to a magazine with its members representing the DDG faces.



Me with Ms. Apple Hollin

It's Ms. Apple! Our EIC! It was my first time to meet her personally! Wonder how we manage to have blog deals, advertisement and sponsorships online? I think we both have that "chemistry". Her daughter Ma'am Colleen was my Chemistry teacher last year. I think that's how. Haha XD



Photo from Margaret

The Location

Prive Luxury Club is a great choice for the DDG mag Grand Launch. It's a "luxury club", perfect for those who want high-class party experience.

The interiors look really glamorous!

Cocktail drinks

Watermelon Mojito and Rhum Coke



Aside from cocktail drinks, they are also known for their whiskies. I've seen a lot of Johnnie Walker inside!

It's an exclusive event for the members of the magazine and their invited guests, sponsors, publishers and management.





About 10pm they started the program,Ms. Apple had her opening speech.
 

Then after that is the toast for the DDG Magazine Launching! Time to party!


Faye Bordeos , the cover girl of the first issue of DDG mag












Me with Alex (works at Jam 88.3)

I can't forget this guy 'cause he eagerly answers my questions (FYI: I also covered the event for the magazine so I have to go around and ask the guests) and he shared upcoming projects of Jam 88.3 to us. I find it really hard to ask everyone with jolly tone and encouraging face because I'm not used to clubbing and socializing with people "older" than me. So I'm happy that somehow I got through it and faced this challenge!





With DDG models and management








DDG's first issue!!!






With a VIP Membership Card from one of the sponsors, the Make Up Store. Make Up Store is an international cosmetic brand soon to be launched in the Philippines. You can use this membership card to get discounts and be invited in their events and parties!
