What it’s like for Rayver to return to GMA after 18 years

Actor Rayver Cruz always wanted to prove that there's more to him than dancing. With his drama series "Asawa Ko, Karibal Ko," he's finally getting that chance---and he's enjoying every minute of it.   "Well, there are developments---as time goes on; the show gets deeper, and becoming more serious," he told the Inquirer in Filipino, prior to shooting scenes at a hospital in Quezon City. "Kaabang-abang. I enjoy it, because there's a mix of emotions, especially whenever there are fight scenes between Kris (Bernal) and Thea (Tolentino)."   It gets even better when his character is caught in that emotional "conflagration," the 29-year-old actor added.   "F...Keep on reading: What it’s like for Rayver to return to GMA after 18 years.....»»

Matti’s Inferno

THE FILIPINO film auteur Eric Matti’s BuyBust was two years in the making and the extraordinary care and effort that went into crafting this action-packed (an understatement) extravaganza are evident. Overall, it’s a pleasant surprise to find the many frenetic fight scenes so competently choreographed, although somewhat haphazardly staged. There are incoherently sincere homagic echoes of classic cinematic blood fests like Kill Bill and the Mad Max movies. Through the stylized grime and luridly lit detritus, BuyBust occasionally shines with sparks of wit and fun. Nonetheless, the depictions of crazed slum dwellers as rabidly violent and lethally zombie-like, raise disturbing questions, foremost of which is: does this characterization of the poor intend to justify killing them off in such inordinate numbers in real life?.....»»

Hindi solusyon ang BBB program ng administrasyong Duterte sa problema ng ating mga repatriated OFWs,"De Jesusnoted during the hearing of the House committee on overseas workers' affairs.

Pacquiao steps up training for Broner tiff

  After shuttling from the Senate offices to nearby Elorde Boxing Gym at Mall of Asia complex, Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday changed from shirt and tie to his workout attire in no time.   "Ok na! Approved na. Extension sa martial law (It's approved, martial law in Mindanao is extended) one year," Pacquiao casually told the full-packed crowd inside the gym.   The throng clapped as he limbered up, shadow boxed and worked the mitts and marvelled at how seamlessly the legendary Filipino boxer shifted from his legislative duties to preparing for his fight against Adrien Broner in January.   "Great round, take it easy," Australian conditioning coach J...Keep on reading: Pacquiao steps up training for Broner tiff.....»»

Gift boxes from award-winning Filipino chocolate brand

  He has always loved chocolates but when he became part of its manufacturing process, Mark Ocampo says he began to appreciate chocolates even more. That's understandable considering that the chocolates his company makes have won international awards just over a year since it was launched: two awards from the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London, and the Great Taste Award also in London.   Auro chocolate bars are now sold in Tokyo, Japan, and in San Francisco, California. In the Philippines, Auro is available in SM's Kultura store, in the Duty Free shops and in specialty stores.

PBA Finals: Barroca claims no sanctions yet over Banchero hit

Magnolia Hotshots guard Mark Barroca says he has not been sanctioned yet over his hit on Chris Banchero's groin area in the late stages of the PBA Governors' Cup Finals Game 5 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Barroca was caught by television cameras hitting Banchero in the crown jewels during a dead-ball situation below six minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The Filipino-Italian floor general writhed in pain for some time before being helped to the bench. The two had been earlier called for a double technical for extra motion during similar dead ball situations. "No sanctions. No fine," Barroca bluntly said after a brief meeting with PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial. The former PBA Finals MVP also shared that he and Banchero are friends off the court but the intensity of the game led to making people see things otherwise. "Wala naman siguro nangyari na yun e. Di pagkakaintindihan na nangyari yun, di naman sa inano ko yung insidente na yun pero game yun e. Di maiiwasan din. Siguro talo kami ngayon bounce back nalang." Even though they butted heads during the game, the two exchanged pleasantries after the final buzzer, perhaps an indication that there were no hard feelings. "Kinongrats ko pa nga siya eh. Nice game. Ganun talaga sa loob magaaway pero sa labas magkakaibigan kami."
