manny villar's "moriones st." tv ad

manny villar's "moriones st." tv ad

this ad on villar is actually chismis. come on, be honest with yourselves. it is fare we all love to devour on sunday afternoon tv. the fact that we are looking into the private life of villar and we are taken there by boy abunda, the master chismis person is just perfect for our sense of peering into the private life of manny villar. pinoys are voyeurs, remember? (check back on how pinoys have been turned into voyeurs from here:

the whole ad is just packaged very well. we should be bored with  ads like these but we are not. we are fixed on the tv and we get to know who manny villar is. 4 stars!

charice pempengco and celine dion duet at the madison square garden – a must see for all pinoys

June 28, 2009 Leave a comment

charice pempengco is a 16 year old pinay who started her singing career in the philippines. she joined many singing contests and his biggest claim to fame in the country is a 2nd place finish in an abs-cbn singing contest.

ellen degeneres saw her youtube posting and was so impressed with her that ellen invited charice to perform in her  The Ellen DeGeneres TV show. she floored everyone in her first US national tv performance.

another US TV great saw her, oprah and did the same thing – she invited charice to perform in her own tv show. but did not end there, oprah took a very strong liking of charice and her talent that oprah became one of her biggest backers in the US.

oprah introduced charice to david foster a music great in america and set up a charice to perform a duet with celine dion in her concert at madison square garden.

new response from NHI chair ambeth ocampo on rizal’s house painted puke green

June 27, 2009 5 comments

published at PDI’s Letters To The Editor. letter parsed, read in full here:

The other news article, “Rizal House is green but people see red” (Inquirer, 6/19/09), tells us what we already know – public reaction to the new color, and the clamor to have the house restored to its “original” color.

This is a case of judging a book by its cover. Before repainting the house, the NHI’s Historic Preservation Division carefully peeled off layers of paint that had accumulated over the last 50 years after the Rizal Shrine was reconstructed using contributions from schoolchildren. The green color everyone hates today happens to be the “original” color.

Nevertheless, the good news is that Boysen Paint has offered to repaint the house in the right shade of green for free. After the rains, we hope a deeper green, the color of “palay,” will continue to educate visitors on the meaning and significance of the surname “rizal” from “ricial” that describes a green field ready for harvest.

 We appreciate the concern for heritage as expressed in these articles but hope that in the future the NHI as the government agency responsible for history will be asked to comment so that the articles will be balanced and not only generate heat but, more importantly, provide illumination as well.
