Celebrities sing top carols’ praises

There's nothing better than listening to well-loved carols as Christmastime approaches. They make us feel good and allow us to temporarily forget about our everyday problems. We asked these celebrities what their favorite Christmas songs are and why: Ken Chan: "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" is the perfect carol for me, because it makes me feel cozy, which is a word that I like. And I love being cozy. The song has a different vibe. When I listen to it, feel na feel ko ang Pasko because it's very relaxing. It makes me think of spending "noche buena" with my family. It's my dream to spend Christmas in the United States with them. Janine Gutierr...Keep on reading: Celebrities sing top carols’ praises.....»»

Celebs pick carols they want to revive

Christmas is just around the corner. What makes the Yuletide season even more festive in Christmas-crazy Philippines is hearing carols being played or sung everywhere. They make the holidays merrier. We asked celebrities what carols they'd choose to revive, and here are their choices:   JULIE ANN SAN JOSE I'd like to do a cover of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" because it has always been my favorite Christmas song. I used to sing it a lot when my friends and I would go caroling from house to house. It's so much fun to sing!   GABBI GARCIA I'd choose "All I Want for Christmas is You." I know it's iconic, and has been covered by a lot of artists. And...Keep on reading: Celebs pick carols they want to revive.....»»

PVL: How tough love and Kutsinta created special bond among Bundit, Valdez and Morado

BATANGAS CITY –- Tough love and shared success were the things that created a special bond among a Thai coach who barely spoke English, a talented spiker and a heady playmaker. A hard-earned UAAP title brought them to the volleyball limelight five years ago. On Saturday, in front of a huge adoring crowd inside the Batangas City Coliseum here Saturday night, Creamline head coach Tai Bundit, ace hitter Alyssa Valdez and setter Jia Morado parted ways after capturing the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference championship.  It was a bitter-sweet moment for the three who shared an incredible journey that captured the hearts of Filipino volleyball fans. From a simple meeting back in September 2013, to the countless hours of Spartan-like training, the triumphs, trials and tribulations to their final farewell inside the volleyball court, the three made colorful memories together. They shared the bond of family. Recalling their fondest memory with the amiable coach, Valdez said that the Bundit made his biggest mark on her with just the smallest of things: a pack of Kutsinta.   “Isa lang talaga ang mamimiss ko sa kanya, whenever we fight talaga, kailangan ko nang sabihin ‘to kasi everyone deserves to know na ganitong klaseng tao siya talaga. Everytime we fight kasi noong college kasi syempre may language barrier so lagi kaming nag-aaway talaga ni Coach Tai, in a good way (kasi) baka akala ng mga tao nang-aaway ako, every time I go out of the dorm, every single day, lagi akong may kutsinta (galing) sa kanya,” Valdez, the PVL Open Conference MVP admitted. “Before going to class lagi akong may pagkain na iniiwan niya sa dorm parang peace offering niya, para hindi daw ako mapagod, may energy daw ako, so I think isa ‘yun sa mga hindi ko makakalimutan sa kanya,” she continued. “Ganoon siyang klaseng tao, very thoughtful and hindi ko talaga ma-imagine ang paglalaro ng volleyball without him kasi siya sa mga naging coach ko na really trusted me, really put me inside the court kahit anong mangyari and iba ang tiwalang binibigay niya sa aming mga players.” For Morado she was just grateful for having Bundit push her beyond her limit to become arguably the best volleyball playmaker in the country.  “‘Yung pinaka-tumatak sa akin kay Coach Tai is how high of a standard he has for me,” said Morado, who won her third Best Setter award in the PVL and earned the Finals Most Valuable Player after the Cool Smashers completed a sweep of Ateneo-Motolite, 25-20, 25-20, 25-15.   “Kahit feeling ko I’m playing at my best na, as in, peak ko na talaga, there is always something na gusto niya i-improve sa akin na sobrang nacha-challenge ako sa kanya parati kasi it’s always so hard for me to get praises from Coach Tai,” she added. “That’s something na nadadaanan ng lahat ng players niya, sobrang taas ng standards niya.” Six days from now, Bundit will formally end half a decade of colorful volleyball coaching in the Philippines with a packed bag and a plane ticket – the same way he started it. He will leave a legacy of ‘happy, happy’ and a heart strong mantra. Morado and Valdez will need to move on with their own careers. But they won’t miss Coach Tai. They have a good reason to say so. “Hindi namin siya mami-miss,” said Valdez. “Pupunta kami ng Thailand.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Bogus: Road construction via China-funded ‘Build Build Build’ program

MANILA, Philippines --- A Facebook post showing a road construction purportedly via the Duterte administration's China-funded "Build, Build, Build" program is a bogus. This was fact-checked by Agence France Presse (AFP), which said Thursday that the photos shown in the Facebook post were from an INQUIRER.net report about a truck that sank in a Quezon City road last November 24. The misleading social media post contains photos of a collapsed road and a truck that dipped into a road, accompanied by a caption that praises President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration's infrastructure program.
