39th Metro Manila Film Festival: Star-Studded But Too Commercialized?

Wazzup Pilipinas!
"What's clear is that the entire film was rushed through production. It's also pretty obvious that people were less concerned about telling a story than selling products. The film regularly stops everything for blatant product placement. Aiza Seguerra shills for Ariel detergent. Bimby Aquino eats a whole plate of Lucky Me Pancit Canton. Vic Sotto teaches us the difference between two kinds of Solmux available in the market. The story starts feeling like an afterthought, its emotional core lost in a wave of vulgar commercialism." - PULPOLitika
Do you agree?

When Vice Ganda was asked if he (or she) preferred a blockbuster hit or a multi-awarded film, the comedian answered "blockbuster".

Isn't it apparent?

No wonder that an action film that chronicles a senator's hours on the run nabbed 14 trophies including the Best Picture award at the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival. "Wala man sa amin ang salapi, na sa amin ang karangalan,"  says actor Robin Padilla.

Why Do We Drink Cow’s Milk: Breastfeeding for Babies

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Most formulas on the market today are manufactured from cow’s milk. Formula companies have produced milk for babies that seem to resemble the real thing. Formula is definitely better than it used to be, but what the factories make doesn't quite measure up to what mom makes. It is nearly impossible for artificial baby milk manufacturers to make milk with nutrients even close to what mothers' bodies can make.

The major concern is that even though formula-fed infants appear to grow normally, are they really thriving? Thriving means more than just getting bigger. It means developing to the child's fullest physical, emotional, and intellectual potential. We just don't know about all the long-term effects of tampering with Mother Nature – though we do know that there are significant health differences between formula-fed and breastfed infants. You may see on which formula is ideal for your baby.

Human milk is a live substance containing live white blood cells and immune-fighting substances, and is a dynamic, changing nutritional source, which daily (sometimes hourly) adjusts to meet the individual needs of a growing baby. Formulas are nothing more than a collection of dead nutrients. They do not contain living white cells, digestive enzymes, or immune factors. Breast milk changes as the baby grows. Formula stays the same. Breast milk is specially formulated to meet the needs of a child as they change.

Singapore Airlines Surprises its Passengers with a Special Mini-Concert Treat

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Flash mobs are nothing new but the surprise and amazement that it brings to the crowd who are there to witness still remains an amazing sight. It's always pleasing to see people grouped together and setting a happy mood for others.

I was invited to experience a surprise mini-concert intended as a Christmas surprise gift to the passenger awaiting departure of Singapore Airlines (SIA) last December 23, 2013 at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1. At approximately 4:00 in the afternoon, a special Christmas dance performance was presented to the passengers waiting for their flight.

The SIA staff came in from all directions and performed live in front of all the passengers who were all in awe  because of the surprise treat. From two voices singing a popular Christmas tune, then growing to a larger group all giving their best performances, both local and foreign passengers witnessed how the SIA staff danced and sang for several minutes all for the purpose of bringing smiles to their most important guests - their beloved passengers.

Shooting at NAIA : No CCTV, No Worry? OMG!

Wazzup Pilipinas!
"The former head of the Philippine National Police-Aviation Security Group is blaming Manila International Airport Authority general manager Jose Angel Honrado for the bloody shooting at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport-Terminal 3. 
Napoleon Cuaton, who is now mayor of Saint Bernard, Southern Lyte, said Honrado should resign after the failed security measures at the airport cost the lives of four people.

The gunman who opened fire on Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur Mayor Ukol Talumpa at the arrival area last week went through an inspection, which Cuaton claimed lacked police presence.

"Inalis na ng GM ng airport ang responsibilities ng PNP-Aviation diyan sa checkpoint. In-allow lang niya ang private security na mag-man ng checkpoint,” said Cuaton."- ABS-CBN News Online
Napanood ko at narinig ang interview over the phone kay Jose Angel Honrado ni Noli de Castro sa TV Patrol. My goodness!!! Nakakahiya ang mga sagot niya. Hindi niya alam ang mga sinasabi nya at hindi siya handa sa mga sagot niya. Nangangapa ng sasabihin kay Kabayan.

Noel: An OFW Christmas Story

Wazzup Pilipinas!

There is this interesting short video now circulating on YouTube that was produced by SM Global Pinoy. It is based around an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW)  which experiences Christmas on his computer. It is an OFW Christmas story for the Facebook generation.

What is shown in the video is an OFW communicating with his friends and family through Facebook and Skype on a Christmas eve. The video is purely on a computer monitor and what the OFW does on his computer (browse, chat, etc..) we as the viewer see.

Its a very interesting and unique video which embraces what a lot of Filipinos whom are an OFW or have an OFW loved one experience on a Christmas day. We hope you would like it also and share it through your social networks and area of influence.

Choosing Veggies Over Meaties

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Choosing veggies over meaties is maybe the hardest decision in a person’s life. It started when we were younger, when we were threathened by our parents that we won’t receive any dessert if we don’t eat the remaining vegetables on our plate. The question is ’why do we have to eat veggies?’ and ‘why is vegetable preferrable than meat?’

First of all, it is a common knowledge that vegetables are the edible plant or part that are either eaten cooked or raw. We intake these veggies not just because our parents say so but also they give us nutrients so we can be healthy and less prone to illness.

Another is that vegetables are always available wherever you are and cheaper than the meat you buy from the store. Vegetables regulate your systems. For example, detoxifying your body and boosting your immunity. Vegetables provide more range of nutrients than from meat. Vegetables contains fibers that improves our metabolism.

Entertainment - An activity that is diverting and that holds the attention

That is what Entertainment mean in the dictionary. But what if we add the word Quality at the first what would that mean now.

Quality Entertainment

It will now mean .... An activity that is diverting and holds the attention of a person, animal or thing that is worth giving of our attention

Now may I ask you.

Are we getting Quality Entertainment with our Pinoy Teleseryes?
