Complete List of Winners of the 41st Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2015

And just like the previous Metro Manila Film Festival, this year's MMFF Awards Night didn't end with no drama and so-called" scandal. With the disqualification of Honor Thy Father - a masterpiece of Erik Matti, it sure did some add juice to this year's selection and awarding ceremony. I bet that there'll be more news of MMFF 2015 in the coming days, but for now I'd like to share what it was like at the 41st Metro Manila Film Festival.

It was my first time to actually witness an MMFF Awards Night. Though, I'm expecting a glamorous night, with the absence of some of the nominees (and winners) on the night's awarding ceremony, the whole event turned out to be a little boring.

Held at Kia Theater in Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, this year's MMFF is co-presented by HOOQ - a mobile app that serves as a gateway to a world of unlimited entertainment. And without further ado, here are the winners of the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015:

A Christmas Experience at the Latest Modern Suburban Community in the South

It seems that every developer in the land is eyeing the south as the next residential/investment capital of Luzon. With already hundreds of developments happening year every year, the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas and Quezon is definitely the next suburban haven for those who are seeking for dwelling place and good investment without any hassle.

Last weekend, together with some friends, I had a wonderful time setting my foot for the first time on this soon-to-be prime destination in this side of Cavite, the Vermosa. A property being developed by Ayala Land, which is dubbed as the next “Ayala Alabang” due to its luxurious cuts of land and amenities that are sure to give its residents a premier living, Vermosa held its 2-day Holiday Escape where it housed more than a hundred merchants including booths that showcase the most exciting development that will happen around the area and some of the famous celebrity entrepreneurs who added glitz and glam to the whole event.

More than just receiving gifts, Christmas is more about sharing. And as the whole world succumbs to this merry-making Season, lifestyle brand Boardwalk, brings social entrepreneurship into the mainstream of fashion through SHARE, a fashion and lifestyle sub-brand with a social development platform.

In pursuit of its vision to help reduce poverty through social entrepreneurship, as it enters its 25th year in the fashion and lifestyle industry, Boardwalk launched last December 3 Share to help men and women from economically-challenged communities to gain a stable source of income.

Mark Lapid on Representing the Tourism Industry

In a recent interview of Kara David for GMA News and Public Affairs’ show Power House, senator-wannabe Mark Lapid shared that he and wife, Tanya Garcia, is not yet married in church until now, because she won’t accept his proposal - an issue that’s obviously doesn’t hinders his ambition to be an elected senator for the upcoming 2016 Election.

Despite of being a dad to two adorable girls and a husband to a beautiful wife, Mark was once a governor of the Province of Pampanga and recently held a position at Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) where he served as Chief Operating Officer prior to his filling of certificate of candidacy for next year’s national election.

An experience that honed and made him decide to run for next year's election, his service for TIEZA was brought about by the recognition that he received when he was appointed as General Manager of the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) in December 2009. The PTA was given by the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel (OGCC) a “Gawad Pampublikong Korporasyon” in testimony of the institution that articulates the values of creativity and excellence through public-private sector partnership.

Huawei #HotspotHotties Invade SM Mall of Asia!

Just when I thought Sunday could be that same dreadful day with Monday coming again, Huawei Philippines, made my afternoon, and a hundred of SM Mall of Asia Cyberzone guests, sizzles with the presentation of their latest innovation with their hottest ambassadors.

Imagine Santa Claus only skinnier, showing his well-carved arms as he wears a sleeve less shirt, a charming smile and that "kilig" factor that drives you toward him - yep, that what with had, but instead of just one, we had 10 sexy, handsome men in red and white, who instead of gifts were giving out free WiFi - both to the naughty and nice!

Carrying the latest creations from Huawei - Huawei Flash, Huawei Spark and Huawei Lightning - these #HuaweiHotspotHotties brought colors and some shrills to the excited guests of the mall to share the full advantage of Huawei’s mobile broadband network compatibility. A fast and uninterrupted delivery of internet connectivity on-the-go was made more exciting with these foreign models that are so eye-catching.
