Chito Miranda and Neri Naig Memes


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Andito na si Chito... si Chito Miranda, magbabagsakan dito in 5 4 3 2 1!

The video going viral is technically not a scandal. But it is a sex video. They're both single and in love. This is nothing but normal in our era. So, just support them and not make this somethin big. I hope the videos going viral and spread around like wildfire all get banned soon. I feel so sad for their parents and relatives who are affected by this issue.

May bago ba dito? Ang bago lang eh yung mga karakter sa video na ito. Pero yung mga ginawa nila bago ba?? Nagawa ninyo na rin sigurado lahat yan, baka mas matindi pa nga. Intimate moment nila tong dalawa na nanakaw. at dahil pinapanood natin ay magnanakaw na rin tayo. Hindi naman sila nag-share nito eh kundi yung magnanakaw na nagnakaw na nga ng gamit ninakaw pa pati magandang reputasyon ni Chito. OK na si Neri dahil open secret naman sa showbiz ang pagiging mistress niya sa mayayaman kaya siya yumaman pero kahit pa kahit wag na si Neri. Si Chito na lang. Itigil na ninyo ito kasi dahil hindi naman ito makakatulong sa pamumuhay ninyo magkakasala pa kayo.

Wazzup Pilipinas!           

BagoSphere is a vocational training company. But unlike typical training centers which can be found in major urban areas, this brainchild of three young philanthropists from Singapore focuses on giving rural youth quick access to gainful employment.

Located in Bago City, a second class city in the province of Negros Occidental, BagoSphere provides a unique combination of communications, critical thinking and life skills training that allows rural youth to become highly-desired employees of the call center and business process outsourcing (BPO) industries in just two months.

With a success rate of over 90%, BagoSphere’s program enables rural youth to experience a seamless transition from training to working in a multi-national company.

Men Dominate Women in Bed : Do You Agree or Disagree?


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Love or lust dominates both women and men in bed.Women need to be dominated. The job of the man in the relationship is first to break her and then tame her; and then he should dominate her.  Shakespeare? Is this "Taming of the Shrew"? This statement was obviously seized from that play. How primitive?

Women generally want to be controlled. It is very seldom that women 'control' the guy in a relationship--unless the guy is a pussy and not a real man?  I may sound sexist but it is what it is. In a relationship, men must be men and women must be women.

However, there are guys who like to be dominated by women.
And there are guys who wants to be dominated by many girls...Try watching a documentary about dominatrix.. You'll see men who are very dominant in their life but likes being dominated when it comes to sex. I don't think there is a dude out there who doesn't want to just lay back and be ravished like crazy? Seeing a woman break up a sweat while she's getting busy on top is one of the sexiest things ever. Also, it hurts the back to constantly be the one moving. Either that or I'm just getting old. Honestly, I feel sorry for any man who has never been dominated by a woman in bed, but that's just me? It's just that some men have yet to experience the pleasures of being tied with a silk scarf and blindfolded.

Cucina Ni Bunso : Rushing Towards Classic Filipino Dishes with a Twist


Wazzup Pilipinas!

You know that you are extremely busy when you keep on missing your appointments one after another because you fail to add them to your calendar of activities. Why? Because it's all filled up with so many invites to events, meetings, exhibits, launches, etc, that they couldn't find a place in my calendar anymore.

When you see your ice cream has turned into a milkshake, you have to worry already because you are missing out on delicious food. Who doesn't like ice cream here? I am surprised at myself I didn't finish up my sweet dessert and to sadly witness it melted already.

What I normally do is I type in codes or abbreviations of my appointments but sometimes I miss its meanings when I'm deep in a multitude of tasks.

But when I received an SMS or text message reminding me of a food review that very same day, I had to drop what I was doing because I wouldn't want to miss out on dining at this new restaurant called Cucina Ni Bunso. However, I will be extremely late because I received the text message 15 minutes after the supposed start time. Whoah!


The Anatomy of a Perfect Thin Crust Pizza, Only from Greenwich


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Whenever I am out, first thing in my mind is food. Perfect for this rainy season is hot, thin and crispy pizza from Greenwich. It's the Social Media Launch of the official website for the 2nd laguna Blogging Summit and perfect for this launch is a place at Philfirst Building along Ayala avenue at Makati. The organizers came with the support of the Philippine Red Cross and Zoomanity Group under Robert Laurel Yupangco, the event went well especially with the yummy and delicious smell of food from Greenwich Pizza.

Personnel from Greenwich Pizza were very accommodating, they asked us first our choice for drinks while they were preparing the conference room. For days actually, I am craving for their thin crust pizza, their PR sent the pictures through email and yes, I am tapped right away.

Today’s pizza lovers have become more discriminating in their choices. Their preferences have leveled up to include not just the right topping but the crust as well. While some prefer to munch on thick crust, others opt for the crispier thin crust for a more flavorful feast.

International Youth Leaders Meet In Manila





Wazzup Pilipinas!

The event is organized by the Humanitarian Affairs United Kingdom, a London-based social enterprise that initiates and supports humanitarian relief efforts and development programs in poor and disaster-prone countries.

The opening ceremony will be held on 2 August 2013 at the Philippine International Convention Center, to be graced by Senator Bam Aquino, a social entrepreneur himself and a 2010 Ten Outstanding Men of the Philippines (TOYM) awardee.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) have partnered to bring the international symposium to the country. “We are honored to be co-hosting this important gathering of young leaders whose common aspiration is to bring about change and make the world a better place. We laud the efforts of the organizers, which all educational institutions worldwide must emulate in influencing the future stewards and leaders of our nations,” DOT Secretary Ramon R. Jimenez, Jr. said.

Jonathan Allen Yabut Wins The Apprentice Asia


Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Jonathan Yabut, you are hired. Congratulations," were the words of business mogul Tony Fernandes at the last episode of the Apprentice Asia.

Congratulations to Jonathan Allen Yabut for winning The Apprentice Asia!

Jonathan, a 27 year old senior product manager of a pharmaceutical company in the Philippines, is the first winner of the first season of business reality show, The Apprentice Asia.

He  was chosen by AirAsia's Tony Fernandes as his apprentice over Singaporean lawyer Andrea Loh Ern-Yu, as seen in the the final episode of "The Apprentice Asia" aired on AXN last Wednesday night.

Food and beverage consultant Celina Le Neindre was the other Filipino finalist who wasn't as lucky as Jonathan but I'm pretty sure she has also made a lot of influential people in and out of the business world take notice of her.


SM Olongapo Elevator Attendant Going the Extra "Floor" ...I Mean "Mile"...for Exceptional Service


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Wow...there's a video going viral around the Internet and social media via YouTube about this elevator attendant from SM Olongapo giving more reasons why "It's more fun in the Philippines." In other places, you only hear "pre-recorded" informations relayed to the general public, right, but here in the Philippines it's more humane interaction. 


Congratulations to this innovative lady that's a great stress reliever during your slight pause inside the elevator after an afternoon of malling around. What she's doing is an extra effort on her part. We should be grateful for these people who went an extra step to do their job.

 I like the girl...interesting voice and its not easy to be an elevator girl but she looks like she loves her work very much. There are some slips with her vowel enunciation but she has a big potential in the call center industry. I'm your fan already! I can see that she loves her job. What's extra-ordinary about her is that she manages to make eye contact with the people in the lift. Go girl! You make me want to Sing "Here at SM We got it All for You". Keep up the good work!

PTT Gas Up For A Tree Event at Morong, Bataan



Wazzup Pilipinas!


"Ang nais ko ay maging luntian ang kulay sa paligid ng daang matuwid" or something to that effect. This is what all honorable nature lovers should say when the need to take care of our environment is threatened. We should act now before it's too late. We can only save our planet if we all do our share and contribute for a greater and "greener" cause.

Set aside the "epals" and "pasaways" of the government and private sector and put forward political will and social responsibility so we can guarantee a bright future for the next generation. We start with the land we are living, and hopefully others around the world will follow.

If the goal of our President (and his chosen men) is to clean up our government from "trapos" and "buwayas" and to put everything in its rightful place, the people (both locals and foreigners living in and visiting from out of the country) coming from the private sector should also try their best to come up with ways on how to help him in his endeavor. He can only do much so he needs all of our help to accomplish greater tasks before he ends his presidency.

Zarzuela : Filipino Food That's Truly World Class


Wazzup Pilipinas !

I thought I've already tasted the best Filipino dishes at home. Well, sorry mom but your cooking has been beaten by this new restaurant offering Filipino Comfort Foods.

As of this writing, I've been there twice already....and both visits never disappointed me.

What is there to say about their Filipino dishes? Well, I'm Filipino but it came unexpected that they will still be able to bring out the best in our native dishes.


Don't believe me? Then go there for yourself at the expansion of EDSA Shangri-La mall. Just follow your noses but be able to distinguish their great tasting sardines or "binangoonan" dishes.

Thai Bistro: Authentic Thai Dishes Even the Kids Can Enjoy



Wazzup Pilipinas!

It is not very often that I get to have time to post on Facebook the photos of the food that I am currently enjoying at that very moment. I was surprised I found myself very generous and proud to share to the world what we were currently dining on. I usually just post it a day after, or just post one photo just to let people know where I am right that very moment. However, the food were just too good to keep to ourselves, I had to share it with the rest of the world - or at least to my friends and subscribers on Facebook.

What even motivated me to boast of the food was the mere fact that even my kids enjoyed the treat. At first, I really thought they won't be too fond of the dishes the restaurant will be serving us. But I was totally surprised my kids really appreciated the food at Thai Bistro.

It makes me wonder how mature their taste buds have grown already to even like authentic Thai spicy foods.  My kids have tasted American, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Korean, and many other dishes but it was their very first time to try Thai.

Ninak: Asian Comfort Food at Kapitolyo in Pasig


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Angus Beef Nilaga in the picture above is a lot more delicious in real life, and so are the other dishes served at Ninak, one of the newest restaurant sprouting at Kapitolyo in Pasig. It's very near the main road and the traffic enforcers know exactly where it is even though its new in the neighborhood.

Ninak is actually "kanin" spelled backwards. Kanin is the tagalog for rice - the staple food of Filipinos. Many would say they won't feel filled if they are not served rice along with their viand. Bread, pasta or mashed potatoes are no equal replacement for rice.

All the great dishes goes well with rice, and we seem to can't live conveniently or fulfilled without it. "Hindi ako nabubusog kapag hindi ako kumakain ng kanin" says many. It will always be a part of the Filipino meal.


Amici: Pizza, Pasta, and Gelato Extravaganza


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Amici has introduced around 10 new dishes to tease your palate, make your heart palpitate, and maybe wanna make you drool all over - that last one maybe too much.... hahaha!

Seriously, I've known Amici to be one of the great sources for my "gelato" craze, and have been one of my often visited resto in the Metro. But it was only that day during the introduction of their new Italian-inspired dishes was when I've heard of the history and origins of Amici.

If you are not aware, "Gelato" is the Italian word for "ice cream" derived from the word "gelatus" which means "frozen". It is made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruits and nut puree - that's how my fave online encyclopedia describes it.

But what's the difference between ice cream and gelato aside from one originating from Italy?

The Peculiar Maiden Goddess





Wazzup Pilipinas!

Every girl dreams of growing up, getting married and having a family of their own, right?

Not exactly.

Some girls want to experience motherhood, but some would rather stay as young women who are free from men. And there’s one goddess in particular, who isn’t quite fond of men herself, besides her twin brother and some of the other deities of course. Rather, she’d be much more comfortable out in the woods, hunting game.

The goddess Artemis, also known as Diana by the Romans, is the patron of the wilderness and girls in general. Her mother is the goddess Leto and her father is the king of the gods Zeus while her twin brother, the sun god, is Apollo. For a virgin goddess, she is surprisingly, also the patron of childbirth. Imagine that! A maiden goddess who patrons women who are giving birth or a pregnant. It was quite the odd addition to her myth, but that’s what makes her an interesting figure.


Billy Joe Crawford Cries Foul Online Over Coleen Garcia Linkage


Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Happiest Birthday to my best friend, my happy thought, my dream come true @billyjoecrawford. ❤ You are a blessing to everyone around you. I love you! PS These photos still make me swoon every time I see them 😍 #TheHumstermeier"

That was the instagram message of Nikki Gil a few months ago. It seems they were so much in love back then. Well, that's for Nikki Gil. I do not really know what's going on in Billy Joe Crawford's mind right now. It is so sad that they have to break-up for very unclear reasons that both parties would want to keep private to themselves. However Billy Joe Crawford says it's all him.

Recently, Billy Joe Crawford had an outburst in one of his social media account. He was crying foul to the people who were linking him with Coleen Garcia. It originated from a photo that was posted online showing all the It's Showtimne members except for Billy Joe Crawford and Coleen Garcia. This led followers an online critics speculate that the two may be out somewhere together.

Jeane Lim Napoles : You Are So Hot! You Are Jampacked with Awesomeness!


 
Wazzup Pilipinas!

Mother scammer Napoles' daughter's party... Lookey-lookey at the video below how they spent their so-called billion-peso kickbacks... Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhh!
 "YOU LOOK SO HOTTTT!" YOU LOOK SO HOT IN THE EYES OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE. SHAME ON YOU JEANE LIM NAPOLES!
 
That's our hard earned money via tax... amp! I vote for tax revolt... scrap PDAF!
Though a tax revolt sounds nice, it doesn't do a lot for those of us whose taxes are automatically deducted from our paychecks before we get our hands on our own money.

What I'm wondering is that does Jeane ever know where her parents got the money? If no, then I wonder how will she feel and what will she do if she found out?

But if yes and she deliberately did it with her parents, I'm guessing she can be arrested as well, now that she's 21 (so I'm guessing the good thing about this video is that it shows she can now be, well, arrested. Nyahahahahahaha! XD).

Passengers at NAIA Are Forced to Use Yellow Taxi



Wazzup Pilipinas!


Regarding possible corruption at NAIA, just recently a group of affected travelers signed and submitted a complaint to NAIA management authorities. Travelers are forced to use a monopoly by the Yellow Taxi Cab operator that is favored by NAIA. This causes undue hardship to the arriving travelers who opt not to patronize Yellow Taxi for various reasons of their own.

Yellow Taxi charges an exorbitant amount compared to the regular taxi fare that travelers would have to pay. So, travelers are forced to walk a long distance with all their belongings towards the area where they may be able to flag down regular taxi cabs.

The closest gate to exit Terminal 3 on foot has been closed for some years and it is not permitted for passengers to use this exit. I would like to see the gate at the nearest exit unlocked so passengers can hail a cab on the nearby road.

This very clearly shows a blatant disregard of the travelers' rights and an attempt to make a stranglehold so that travelers have no option but to take Yellow Taxi which is positioned so that it is immediately available right out of the nearest door as they exit the airport. This smacks of illegal activity between the Yellow Taxi Cab Operator and NAIA authorities.

Rhea : The Great Mother




Wazzup Pilipinas!

RHEA was the Titanis mother of the gods, and a goddess of female fertility, motherhood, and generation. Her name means "flow" and "ease."

As the wife of Kronos (Time), she represented the eternal flow of time and generations; as the great Mother (Meter Megale), the "flow" was menstrual blood, birth waters, and milk. She was also a goddess of ease, a blessing reflected in the common Homeric phrase "the gods who live at their ease (rhea)."

In myth, Rhea was the wife of the Titan Kronos and Queen of heaven. When her husband heard a prophecy that he would be deposed by one of his children, he took to swallowing each of them as soon as they were born.

Hades : God of the Underworld



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Hades, who is Hades? He was the King of the Underworld, the god of death and the dead. He presided over funeral rites and defended the right of the dead to due burial.

Hades was also the god of the hidden wealth of the Earth, from the fertile soil with nourished the seed-grain, to the mined wealth of gold, silver and other metals.
He is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon, and therefore from the first generation of Olympian Gods. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea his brothers are Zeus and Poseidon.

They all drew lots to determine which part of the world they would rule. Zeus get the sky and Poseidon received the sea. And Hades was left with the underworld.



The Top 10 Requests of Bloggers (and Everyone Else in Media)


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Quickly.... from whatever comes to mind first...I search the inner recesses of my brains ....trying to tap my memories and experiences when I attend events meant for bloggers and/or members of tri-media.

The complaints, rants, and requests are all the same. Whether for print, TV, radio, or online media. There is nothing separating them anymore (OK... may be there's a fine line between tri-media and online media). We are now talking of the same people, with same goals and needs - to cover the news and share it with the world - but to get something in return. After all, being a member of the media is extremely hard work and we also have bills to pay.

Whether you want to admit it or not, each one of us wants to be rewarded or compensated for our efforts. "Hindi naman pwedeng palaging TY at libre na lang ate".

Media people (online or offline) all deserve and expect respect. They are not here to become charitable institutions. It's work for most of them. It's nice when you are acknowledged for being supportive, but it's awesome if you get to enjoy some blessings.


Here are some of the requests we hear that we hope the establishments will grant to our vigilant media men.


Claudine Barretto Is A Battered Wife : Di Nga? This Must Be a Typo!


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Atty. Ferdinand Topacio said that Caludine Barretto has been suffering as early as 2005 from co-celebrity husband Raymart Santiago saying she is a battered wife physically, emotionally, psychologically and even "economically".

"Ayon sa aking kliyente, 2005 pa ay mayroon nang ganitong mga acts ngunit dahil nga sa pagmamahal niya noon kay Raymart at nung magkaroon sila ng mga anak, tiniis niya until it came to a point na hindi na niya kayang tiisin," he said.

Whoah!! Si Claudine Barretto ay isang battered wife?

Teka...I still remember Claudine Barretto helplessly beating up a man twice or thrice her age at the NAIA Terminal 3. Do you still remember her battle against the Tulfo Brothers?

Parang mas mukhang battered husband si Raymart Santiago ah.

During a hectic day with a schedule of a celebrity stylist, Liz needs an efficient smartphone partner and a reliable data connection to keep up with the demands of her fast-paced lifestyle. Both of which, she found in BlackBerry Z10 and Globe Telecom.


Describe your day.

On a typical day, as soon as the alarm rings, I check my BlackBerry Z10 to review my to-do list for the day. Then, I get ready, usually I try and keep it pretty structured with some comfort since my day ahead involves meetings, pullouts, and shoots; coordinating with my team and so on, so I like to find outfits that will take me through the day. After work, I make time to work out and stay fit.

Jeane Lim Napoles : Enjoying Pork Barrel Perks and Privileges


Wazzup Pilipinas!

She is Jeane Lim Napoles, daughter of Janet Lim-Napoles, the woman now tagged as the "mother of P10-billion pork barrel scandal."

She poses with celebrities? Hahaha! Cheap! If I have the same net worth, I'd be partying with them. LOL! But I'm doing that now to some extent even with significantly lower "wealth".

The following statement below is a repost from a blogsite whose link is posted way down below. I thought it best to share it in my blog as it is obviously a hate blog.

If these were all true despite claims of having acquired their wealth through business partnerships in Indonesia, I pray that the law catches up with them and give justice to the millions of suffering Filipinos!
