The Search is On... Artista Academy!

As the gates to the stardom open, TV5 welcomed thousands of young hopefuls to this one-day grand audition of Artista Academy - the biggest and most intensive"artista" search ever mounted on Philippine television. And earlier at Smart-Araneta Coliseum, where I personally saw how they filled up the bleachers inside the Big Dome, this is indeed, the biggest and grandest "artista" search I've seen so far!

With Php20 million at stake, boys, girls and in betweens, age 16 to 21 took this chance to be screened and be qualified to the first batch of aspiring showbiz personalities of this grand academy. From the thousands of hopefuls, their gonna bring it down to hundreds and then to the top 16 who will be enrolled to the intense "artista" curriculum that the Kapatid Network has prepared in finding the Philippine TV's next big thing.

I spotted a lot of youngsters who I feel would pass the qualification round a while ago. These participants had to fall in line to be screened bearing their birth certificates, valid ID and best glam photos. And since there were tens of thousands who took this chance to be discovered, everyone has to fall in line while keeping it cool to look good on the VTR, which was headed by Artista Academy principal Miss Wilma Galvante and TV and film director Mac Alejandre.

My JanSport Super Sized Summer Experience!

As you may all know, I'm not really an outdoor-ish kind of person. I may go out of town to see places, but most of those trips include nothing but taking photos, beach bumming and church visiting. Well, there are times that I just indulge on food, but I barely do adventures that involves physical activities - really!

That's why when I was invited to join this JanSport Super Sized Summer, I know that I'm taking a different path, the one that doesn't have a "tuwid na daan." Hahaha!

I'll admit that I'm a contest junkie, an online contest junkie, that is, so joining something like this is something that I considered life-threatening at some point. The last time that I joined something like this was way back 2 or 3 years ago, and since then I told myself that  tooold for these kind of games, and that I should leave this to the younger ones.

The 2012 Junior PizzaMasters of Shakey's!

Indeed, summer is over. No more beach bumming for me and kids are back to school now. But to these 50 kids who had a great time creating their version of the famous Shakey's Thin-Crust Pizzas and serving the world-famous pizzeria is a more dynamic and fun way, Shakey's Junior PizzaMasters made their summer everything!

In the recently concluded Shakey's Junior PizzaMasters, almost a hundred of kids from the different parts of the metropolis gathered at Shakey's Quezon Avenue to have a great summer time whipping up their very first  Shakey's Pizza.

For 7 days, these kids learned the Basic Pie Making, Pizza Construction and Dough Tossing as well as hands on in-store exposure like Order-Taking, Hands on in-store experience, Basic Sanitation and Utensils Familiarization.

UNIQLO: Now Open at SM Mall of Asia!

Finally! The most anticipated opening of its first-ever store in Manila has come! And tomorrow, it's gonna be a one-fun "sahod" day, as every boy and girl in town join the craze on the brand that's been loved and adored all over Asia - UNIQLO!

Yesterday, I was one of the lucky few who got glimpse and experience what it's like to be inside the UNIQLO store. I haven't been to any other Asian countries where there's a UNIQLO store, so every detail about this store has made curious to the point that I, myself, can't help but to get gaga over their clothing line and apparels.


To my amazement, and for everybody's information, I think they can handle the craze tomorrow, and I think that they have prepared themselves for this because the store is soooo huge that we were actually given a map just to know where such item is located! Amazing, right?
