Filipino Mixed Martial Artists Emerge Victorious at One FC: Rise of Heroes


Wazzup Pilipinas!

One Fighting Championship (One FC), Asia’s largest Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organization with a 90% market share, impressed the sold-out crowd in attendance at the state-of-the-art Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena with One FC: Rise of Heroes. Fans were treated to an unforgettable night of mixed martial arts action, culminating in a successful title defense of the One FC Bantamweight World Championship by Bibiano Fernandes. Filipino fans in attendance also had reason to cheer, as all five Filipino mixed martial artists won their respective bouts.

Bibiano Fernandes displayed both grappling and striking skills en route to his first successful title defense. The first round of the main event was fairly even. Fernandes managed to take Masakatsu Ueda down, but Ueda reversed the position and landed a knee before time expired. Bibiano Fernandes established his dominance in the second round. He landed more strikes and also succeeded with a takedown attempt. Fernandes found success in the third round as well, ending the round with a rear naked choke attempt. Fernandes’ world class grappling prowess shone through in the championship rounds as Ueda failed to find an answer to his takedowns. All three judges scored the bout in Fernandes’ favour.

Striking pugilists Eduard Folayang and Kotetsu Boku went to battle in the co-main event, but it was Folayang’s improved wrestling skills that swung the bout in his favor. Both parties were highly respectful of each other’s striking pedigree and were hesitant to strike in the opening exchanges. Folayang took Boku down with an empathic slam in the first round, and came close to finishing the bout with an armbar attempt before time ran out. Folayang’s improved grappling was on full display in the second round, as he took Boku down on several attempts as well as grazed Boku with a spinning wheel kick. After a wild third round where both fighters attacked valiantly in search of the knockout finish, Folayang emerged with his hands raised with a unanimous decision victory.

Mission EO 255: A 5K Campaign Run for Stricter Implementation of Executive Order 255


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Can you finish 5K in 25.5 minutes? Run with us on May 18 and see if you can!


The Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mangaawit (OPM) - the leading and most respected organization of Filipino professional singers in the country, in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), is holding a campaign run dubbed as Mission: EO 255 for the stricter implementation of Executive Order 255.

This will be held on 18 May 2014 at the G-Strip in Greenhills, San Juan. The race will kick off at 5AM.

The event aims to raise awareness of and encourage the radio stations’ full adherence to the above-mentioned Executive Order, issued by former Pres. Corazon Aquino in 1987, requiring all radio stations with musical format programs to broadcast a minimum of four (4) original Pilipino musical compositions in every clock hour.

“OPM aims to ensure the growth of the local music industry; thus, it is very important that all radio stations implement EO 255,” said OPM President Ogie Alcasid.  Furthermore, “Not only are we launching the campaign to remind radio stations – and a big thank you to those who do implement EO 255 – but also to let the public know that they can expect a minimum of four OPM songs to be played per hour on all radio channels so as to make the implementation of EO 255 participative.”

Cockfighting Tour: A Visit at the La Loma Cockpit


Wazzup Pilipinas!

My grandfather was a "sabungero" or "mananabong" (cockfighter). I remember him visiting our home so early in the morning to bring us some "puto" (rice cakes) from the "palengke" (public market) before proceeding to the cockpit which was just one ride away from our home. His routine would be to pass first by the public market near their home (one city away) to buy those rice cakes for us, then head on over to our home to drop off the treats. I was still in grade school but I remember him vividly well because my parents would always wake us up when he arrives. He will not join us for breakfast and will only have coffee before he leaves for the cockpit. I can still remember the rooster or cock which he carries around inside a box filled with holes and has a handle for convenience in carrying.

I was still too young to realize he was into cockfighting. During those days I thought it was just one of his pets. We had our own share of pets during my younger years. We had rabbits, ducks, dogs, turtles, chickens, and lots of birds of different kinds that made our home look like a mini-zoo. It never occurred to me that you can train animals to fight each other. All I've personally seen close to it during those days was spider fighting among my friends. My playmates would capture and force spiders to fight atop a stick. We would hunt for spiders at nearby areas where lots of trees used to exist, and put them inside matchbox cages. There was indeed a lot of thrill and excitement to see those little creatures fight each other. I can imagine right now what it feels like when cockfighters do the same with their cocks. 

Cockfighting is a blood sport in which two cocks bred for aggressiveness are encouraged to fight to the death. It happens in many neighborhoods especially in the provinces around the country. It is however considered illegal and a felony in many other countries. The chickens are pumped up with stimulants and have sharp razor blades or ice-pick-like gaffes affixed to their legs. They hack each other to death at the cockpit ring to the amazement of the spectators. Punctured bodies, gouged eyes, and other grievous wounds are part-and-parcel of cockfighting. It is a way of gambling in the Philippines but it is also seen as a national sport where both the rich and poor gather and witness some kind of extreme confrontation between fighting birds.

Aged Cocktail Tasting with Giancarlo Mancino: You Can Never Go Wrong at Rambla


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Rambla recently hosted an aged cocktail tasting for select members of the press. Luckily, Wazzup Pilipinas was one of those few and we were in for a night of fun, cocktails, and learning. They flew in world renowned Italian bartender Giancarlo Mancino, the creator of Mancino Vermouth.

Upon arriving, we were served the Early Grey Gin Tonic which is actually tanqueray gin infused with early grey loose tea, fever tree, lemongrass, and tonic water. I loved that the tea and the lemongrass really popped out, putting me under the illusion that I was drinking something non alcoholic. I also loved the presentation because it was quite feminine and not daunting at all as most gin and tonic seem to appear.

After some chit chat and photoshoot, we were finally led upstairs where we were made to experience what an aged cocktail truly is about. To start off, we had the Aged Negroni. This was made with 1 bottle of classic gin, London # 1. Added to the mix were 2 bottles of Mancino Vermouth and 1 bottle of Campari. Now with the ageing process, a few important things to remember is that when you set the drink in its barrel, you are not supposed to move it around for at least a month.

With society’s growing concern about climate change, adapting a green lifestyle has been a growing trend over the years. In honor of Earth Month, the green movement has become more pronounced than ever, as more and more homeowners prefer products – from fashion to furniture – that are both environment-friendly and aesthetically pleasant.

For those who want to go organic but don’t know where to start, a leading manufacturing company offers a simple solution – put your environmental card on the table.

To celebrate Earth Month, CDC Manufacturing Corporation has recently unveiled an affordable “green” concept in tableware for the modern home under its Melawares line, dubbed as the “Bambooware” collection. Mirroring the company’s philosophy of reducing carbon footprint in their products, this new line boasts of a complete range of tableware products, and uses actual bamboo fibers from this wonder plant that belongs to the “grass” family, plus other organic compounds to make it 100% biodegradable.

myKaffe Bakeshop: Your One Stop Sweet Shop in Caloocan


Wazzup Pilipinas!

What would you expect from a bakeshop located in a neighborhood that's only easily accessible to the residents and other business establishments nearby? We went there by taxi but one of our blogger friends had to commute because he had to go there on his own for missing our ride due to a faulty Internet connection (you know who's at fault). It's infront of a very popular 24 hour convenience store so you won't miss it.

Anyway, you'll be surprised of what we discovered almost hidden somewhere at Caloocan! Though at first you won't be impressed because there's not much eye-candy to see, I was very hopeful my viewpoint will change the moment they serve the food. Whoa! my hunch was correct! When they served the cute little Brazo de Mercedes cupcake, I was like ... "Wow!"

The beautifully whipped meringue frosting with the yellow-orange filling in the middle made the cupcake enticing. Though I was not too impressed with the taste, maybe because I was used to eating a long-time family favorite from another bakeshop, it was my first time to see one served as a cupcake. The great thing about myKaffe Bakeshop is that the hands-on owner can easily adjust her creations based on customer feedback. We've learned that she has a large kitchen filled with all the essentials to please a professional pastry chef. Now I am really envious!

New Olds: Design Between Tradition and Innovation


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Together with German curator Volker Albus—who previously curated the travelling exhibit Somewhat Different: Contemporary Design and the Power of Convention at Yuchengco Museum in 2012—IFA (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V.) presents New Olds: Design between Tradition and Innovation. Featuring 60 objects that explore the relationship between tradition and innovation in contemporary design, New Olds will be on view from May 9 to June 6, 2014 at Yuchengco Museum.

New Olds looks into how contemporary designers work with traditional elements, whether it is style, material, or craft. The show also explores the themes of material, construction, configuration, production, and traditional use. 45 designers and design teams from Germany, other European countries, and the US enter into an intensive dialogue at the exhibit.

Design has a short and highly successful history in the West. It quickly became a key feature of a collective understanding of culture, and is correspondingly appreciated and communicated. Today, design is gaining significance, and not just as a profession. Many of the design pieces that are being sold as fresh and innovative are actually derived from history, culture, and tradition, representing a new way of interpreting old forms. This exhibition looks at aspects of the “new” and the “old” in a range of objects and groups of objects, discusses differences and new combinations, presents trends in recycling and redesign, and looks at the transformation of design classics and traditional ways of using new materials.


Miss Tourism World Philippines 2014: The Search is On for the Next Beauty Queen


Wazzup Pilipinas!

After bagging numerous international crowns these past years, there is no doubt that the Filipina beauty is one of the most captivating in the world. This year, one of the biggest national pageants happening in the country today, is in search for young, lovely and talented Filipina who would want to be the next beauty queen. Miss Tourism World Philippines will soon be held in SM Mall of Asia Arena this June 2014.

Miss Tourism World Philippines will be the first in the history of Philippine pageantry and in the rest of the world to give away 10 International Titles and an opportunity for its candidates to go abroad all expenses paid and compete on international beauty pageants representing the Philippines. Join and grab one of the 10 crowns and 10 major titles, aside from the Miss Tourism World International.

But what sets this contest apart is that Miss Tourism World Philippines 2014 is perhaps the first of its kind where winners will each be involved in actually performing socio, civic, economic and humanitarian activities in their hometowns. At the same time, winners have the opportunity to help promote tourism as Ambassadresses of Goodwill in their respective provinces/cities/municipalities.
