Pero tila merong mga nangingialam sa diskarte ng Star Cinema at kinukuwestyon kung bakit si Angel ang napili bilang Darna gayong nagawa na niya ito sa GMA-7.
“Bakit.Siya.Ang.Darna? I like her pero nagawa na niya. Saka…saka dapat iba na ang ginagawa niya. Level up na. Nagawa na niya e. Bakit siya? Ay, bakit ba ako nakikialam? Hindi nga pala ako taga kabila hahaha,” mensahe ni Suzette Doctolero sa Facebook.
It leaves a bad taste in the mouth dahil ang message ay nanggaling sa isang taong nagwo-work sa kalabang network. Sobrang pakialamera itong si Suzette, ha. Bakit ‘di na lang ang My Husband’s Lover ang pakialaman mo.
Anyway, merong nag-comment sa Facebook and said, “Sa kasaysayan ng tv ratings ng pilipinas tanging Si angle locsin Lang ang nakapagtamo ng pinakamataas na ratings na darna ng GMA7.kaya alamhhhh nahh..nais makatikim ebs ang namithing tagumpay ng darna kapuso.”
“Mas maganda na si Angel uli ang gaganap na Darna kasi ang plano nila ay gawing mala-Hollywood ang effect ng pelikula. And knowing Angel Locsin, she is very good when it comes to action. Talbog niya ang ibang actress na naging Darna na,” sabi naman ng isang fan.
WITHOUT RATTLING off specific reasons on why he feels that Kim Jones is the one for him, ito ang paliwanag ni Jericho Rosales sa presscon ng movie niyang Alagwa. “Hindi ko alam. In every relationship ay may mga away, bati-away, maraming challenges pero mas madalas ang joy sa buhay naming dalawa, eh. She’s just the type of a person who’s willing to support, love and give more love. Ako ay ganoon din sa kanya. She deserves all the love in the world because she’s so nice, she’s very talented, so caring. For me, I call her my dream girl. Jackpot ako, jackpot talaga ako kay Kim.”
Literal na umalagwa ang career ni Echo simula nang maging dyowa niya si Kim. May dalang suwerte sa kanya ang dalagang kanyang pakakasalan sa isnag beach wedding next year.
Alagwa, technically his second indie film after I Love You Virus, has earned for Jericho plaudits in the international movie scene. He was the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement in Acting award in two award-giving bodies, the Newport Beach International Film Festival 2013 and more recently, the Guam-USA International Film Festival.
Bilang single dad whose son (Bugoy Cariño) became a victim of human trafficking, Jericho reaped praises in the international market. Hollywood Reporter review said, “Nagging, brusque and hyper-critical, Rosales expertly conveys the over-compensation of the single parent in the tough love Robert shows his son.”
Sabi ni Jericho, the challenge lies in the “hard work” in preparation for his role.
“Pinaghalo-halo ang tatlong characters – may father, may brother, may nephew – alam mo ’yun? Nilagay ko ‘yung sarili ko sa kanila. It’s hard kasi ‘di naman ako full-time father talaga. Robert Lim is a full-time single dad. Inisip ko na lang na ‘o, paano ‘yung ganito?’”
HAD A taste of Asian cuisine during the opening of Urban Spoon where Michelle T. Defensor, younger sister of Mike Defensor, is one of the owners.
Urban Spoon, located at the ground floor of Victoria Towers in Timog, Quezon City, boasts of authentic Asian cuisine as Gustatory Consultant Chef Rodrigo Reloj stressed.
“Actually it’s more on the Southeast Asian side like Indonesian, Malaysian. In Malaysia alone there’s a very special cuisine called Peranakan or Nyonya. And then we have a little bit of Thai and Singaporean. We all aware that the food from the straits, that’s where they do the trade of spices. This is where all the good cuisine emanated,” Chef Rodrigo, an architect by profession and culinary master by passion, shared.
“The taste is really authentic but the presentation has a modern twist. It’s naman modern that you don’t recognize it or you don’t appreciate it. Parang we take pride from that. Even the plating itself, parang there’s art already,” Michelle shared.
The name Urban Spoon was coined by Michelle who wanted to have “a young, vibrant feel for a dining place.”
“Parang the feel is young and parang relax lang. If it’s going to be too-Asian sounding, parang sometimes it might come out too Singaporean or too Chinese. We wanted to achieve na parang you appreciated Urban Spoon, parang modern food then a taste of Asia,” Michelle related.
