Juana C Movie Breaks The Traditional Politicians

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The attack on the wrong doings and immoral acts of most of the political personalities was done in a humorous and "provocative" way thru a comedy movie called Juana C.

Starring Juana Change, Mae Paner in real life, the movie, or "sex" comedy as they claim with a grin on their faces, is a movie with a mission, and that includes to promote good governance and non-traditional leadership. It shouts out loud that there is an extreme need for change in the government system and the time for change is now.

There is a lot of sex in Juana C. the full-length film debut of the political critic/YouTube phenomenon. Kinky sex, sex for pay, boy on boy, girl on girl, group and something called vroom vroom. Why is there so much sex  in a movie that wears its advocacies on its XXL sleeve?

The Inquirer reports "On May 17, during the packed concert titled “I Vice Ganda Mo Ako sa Araneta” at the Big Dome, Viceral staged a whole segment about unlikely celebrities becoming bold stars.

Arc Mobile : Is It Better than the Competition?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I salute Pinoy products because I am a proud to promote Filipino made products that came from the creative minds and entrepreneurial spirit of Filipinos. Whether in or out of the Philippines, the Pinoy really makes an outstanding mark.

I most admire those businessmen who would try to compete with big brands in a world where branding and recognition is highly invested upon. We would see a lot of marketing efforts that would shell out a large financing in order to promote a brand.

It is such an inspiration knowing that locals would try to make a name out from a market that's already filled up with so many choices.

Gigi Coffee and Cupcakes : Brightens Up My Day

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes. What's good about cupcakes is that they come in sizes enough for just one sitting. Unlike cakes where you have to slice it, cupcakes allows you to taste as much other variety as you want without ruining an entire cake.

I've been longing to write about Gigi Coffee and Cupcakes for the past weeks already since I was there at their restaurant in Eastwood, Libis Quezon City with my friends but the several out-of-town travels and daily events always kept me from sitting in front of my computer to write about it.

Its the hardest article to write about - the story about my dining experience with some fancy cupcakes and coffee concoctions to satisfy my cravings for the best tasting sweets and drinks.

Gigi Coffee and Cupcakes definitely made an impression, and a worthy piece to write about, which makes it really hard just to sit down and write some simple paragraphs.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Cervical cancer is sadly the second deadliest cancer prevalent among the women of the Philippines, and maybe even the world. It is next to breast cancer to claim many lives, but it is unfortunately the hardest to cure because you would usually notice the symptoms once it is already at a deadly stage.

Thus it is advisable to have a regular check-up to detect it during its earlier stage when it is still possible to cure it.

Isabelle Daza, plus other personalities join the cause to encourage women to submit themselves to regular detection to prevent or avoid being among the casualties of this dreaded disease.

Transform Yourself with Schick

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A new Superman movie entitled MAN OF STEEL will soon be shown in many Philippine cinemas. I have to admit that I can't wait for that day to come as I am indeed a fan of the Superman movie franchise - even the Smallville TV series and the comic books.

Nuffnang will be sponsoring a MAN OF STEEL movie screening on June 14, 2013 and they are inviting everyone to participate in a contest where you get a chance of winning two tickets plus other MAN OF STEEL merchandize if you watch the movie.

If I had the powers of the MAN OF STEEL for one (1) week, I would use his speed to spin the earth into the opposite direction fast enough to return the planet into the past (Just like in the very first Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve) so that I could help mankind recreate a better history with less violence and better opportunities for all.
