Robert De Niro is Untouchable Once More in THE FAMILY (aka Malavita)


Robert De Niro is one of the most celebrated screen actors of all time. He continues to expand his boundless range with performances spanning from comic to serious and everything in between. Robert De Niro is back to his gangster ways starring in films like Goodfellas, Casino, The Untouchables, Once Upon Time in America and The Godfather II, De Niro has proven time and time again that he is at home in gangster genre. And while he’s starred in a few bad titles over the last few years, it’s always good to see him come back home, and that sentiment can now be extended to Luc Besson’s new crime comedy-thriller ‘The Family’ (aka Malavita).

Based on the book “Badfellas” by Tonino Benacquista, The Family centers on the Manzino family, a mafia clan that has to go onto witness protection when the patriarch , Giovanni (De Niro), testifies against his associates. Hiding as Blakes, the family. De Niro says he was attracted to the film’s humour and original point of view. “It’s an unusual take on the mobster genre with a novel storyline,” he says. “My character was a crime boss in New York, but he turned in his whole crew. When he entered the Witness Protection Program with his family, they were sent to France, but every place they have been resettled, they end up in hot water. Now they are in the middle of nowhere and it might as well be Mars. The situation can seem a bit surreal, but the character is very real and relatable.”

Totoo pala ang lamig -- A real therapeutic spa experience at NuLiving Spa in Binondo


Often times, I hear my massage therapist saying "angdami mong lamig".  And since I'm usually half-sleep while undergoing the therapy, I often ignore that remark.  I thought it was just a way for them to show the "science" or "relevance" of massage.  So I just let them talk while I just savor the hand strokes at my back because with or without science, and with all the stress, I will always avail of spa services.

But when we visited NuLiving Spa in Binondo, I discovered that "lamig" (literally means cold) is indeed true!  Lamig's medical terminology is nodule and the diagnosis for it is myofascial pain syndrome.

The Anatomy of WikiLeaks Scandal in THE FIFTH ESTATE


Every generation produces a rebellious figure who changes the game of power and becomes something larger than himself; for some, a visionary symbol of hope; for others, a dangerous enemy of the state. In the early 21st Century, such a figure has emerged in Julian Assange and his groundbreaking, information-disseminating organization, WikiLeaks. Initiated in 2006 as a non-profit devoted to publishing previously secret, potentially incendiary information from anonymous sources -- while offering the security of cutting-edge cryptography -- WikiLeaks shattered the mold of 21st Century news-gathering, trumping mainstream media organizations and infuriating people in power.

Then, Assange became a news story unto himself. In 2010, as WikiLeaks led the release of the largest trove of secret, government files ever to see the light of day, Assange began to emerge simultaneously as a hero, a villain (?), a journalist, or perhaps just a guarded man caught in a blinding global spotlight.

The coming of SON OF GOD in 2014

The Return of Chris Hemsworth as the Mighty Avenger in THOR: THE DARK WORLD


Australian actor Chris Hemsworth reprises the role of Thor for the third time in Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World.”

In this latest epic adventure, Hemsworth is back in his glory, looking every bit like the Mighty Avenger that audiences have come to idolize. Hemsworth says of his return, “I love playing the character. The trick is to find new ways to make the character have some sort of advance or growth from the last film. Each time we get to break him down and find his human qualities and his vulnerable side it’s interesting because he has such a tough exterior and an unbreakable feel.”

A Huge Surprise is Coming to the Philippines!


Did you know that surprises make people remarkably happier?

Surprises have, indeed, powerful effects. Psychologist Norbert Schwarz conducted a classic study where it was found that a small but pleasant surprise, such as finding 10 cents, uplifts a person’s mood. Schwarz repeatedly placed a coin near a copy machine where it can be easily seen. When the subjects who found the coin were surveyed shortly thereafter, their overall satisfaction with life was significantly higher than those who did not find the coin.

Now, It's Inevitable to be Unstoppable!


Career. Blogging. Socials. Church.  Family.  Hobby.  And the list goes on and on...  Sometimes I wish if there's just 8 days in a week so we'll have 3 days in a weekend or 3 perhaps 6 hours in a day so we'll have more hours for sleeping, but I guess Santa just grants kids' wishes only! :)

Enjoy chocolate in many ways via GOYA TAKE IT!


They say Filipinos love sweets.  That's why falling in love with chocolates was easy for us.  But where did these chocolates come from and how can we enjoy it many different ways?

The Greeks were on to something when they called the cacao tree the “food for the gods.” It is, after all, where chocolate comes from.

And, if left on their own, people would anoint chocolate a food group, like grains and vegetables. To many, chocolate is already an elixir, capable of banishing fatigue, boosting flagging spirits and mimicking the giddy feeling of being in love.

That chocolate has other health benefits (decreasing the risk of stroke, upping heart health) is, well, more reason to eat it! In fact, Goya has found another easy-peasy way to get your fix: by just taking it.

Yes, the new Goya Take It molded chocolate wafers are three-layer crispy wafer fingers smothered in milk chocolate and available in easy-to-carry packs of 2 fingers, 4 fingers and, if you’re a choco hoarder, a 6 pack of 2 fingers.
