Kia sends LA Revilla to Phoenix

The drama involving LA Revilla and Kia has been resolved. In a report by PBA Press Corps president Gerry Ramos from Los Angeles, the Picanto are trading away Revilla to Phoenix in exchange for rookie Jayson Grimaldo and a 2018 second-round pick. The situation between player and team has been ugly since the now-infamous trade between Kia and San Miguel for the 2017 no. 1 pick went down. Moments after Commissioner Chito Narvasa approved the trade, Revilla sent out a cryptic tweet that appeared to criticize both Narvasa and Kia management. Now, Revilla is out of Kia and on his way to Phoenix, giving the Fuel Masters depth at point guard, a position of need for the team. After a championship stint at La Salle in the UAAP, Revilla was taken in the third round by Globalport in 2013. He was part of the original Kia squad that made its debut in the 2014-2015 season.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

CITY OF MALOLOS -- The Bulacan State University (BulSU) main campus in this city resumed classes on Friday (November 10) following a bomb threat that turned out to be false.

Kim Chiu, Janine Gutierrez defy thespic odds in spooky starrers

  The Ghost Bride" gives Kim Chiu good reasons to crow and scream about, thanks to director Chito Roo's penchant for turning obscure tales into elaborate stories that benefit from his flair for narrative exoticism and plausible yarn-spinning. When the family of Mayen Lim (Chiu) falls on tough times, it finds its unexpected "savior" in matchmaker Angie Lao (the sinister Alice Dixson). The imposing "businesswoman" comes to the perpetually cash-strapped family's "rescue" with a quick-fix proposal that leaves Mayen torn between following what her heart desires and sacrificing personal happiness in exchange for a life of comfort and convenience. As the cautionary proverb ...Keep on reading: Kim Chiu, Janine Gutierrez defy thespic odds in spooky starrers.....»»
