[Sunday BrandDay!] E! People’s Choice Awards 2018

NOTE: I’m launching a new segment on my website today called Sunday Brand Day. It’s about my collaboration and partnership with brands. This post was meant to be published last week but I was surprised it wasn’t up on the site yet so I’m posting this today just to maintain the ‘freshness of the news.’

Today is a good day, because it kicks off our five days of double votes for the 2018 E! People’s Choice Awards.

In this episode of Mars, not only do we get the opinion of the ladies, but we’ve also got the guys’ perspective to spice up tonight’s discussion! From Eat Bulaga’s That’s My Bae segment, Kenneth Medrano and vocalist-actor Marc Abaya invade Mars as they speak about their life-long habits in On the Spot.

Marc will also offer something new in the menu with his Yummierkules recipe that is Creamy Halo-halong Minatamis! But for those who are extra cautious about their weight, don’t worry because we’d exercise altogether in Push Mo, Mars!

A social enterprise owner will also visit the studio to share her entrepreneurship journey! From being a kindergarten teacher in Belgium, now Anneleen Van Dyck spreads positivity in the Philippines. She teaches moms in Manila, who are otherwise unemployed, to crochet for their livelihood program in the neighborhood.

Take inspiration from today’s episode of Mars which airs daily Mondays to Fridays on GMA News TV at 7 p.m.

What’s more is that for her first guesting on the show, Miss Maggie makes her delicious version of vegetable curry that will remind us of homemade specials prepared by our lolas.
Brace yourself as we also take a trip down memory lane because it’s the throwback edition in Grab A Word! See what the ladies have to say about it.
And in Mars Magaling, it’s a face-off between the hosts and the guests. Watch how it goes as they play the Jumbled Letter challenge.

Film Fridays: Watch some scenes from the Hidden Cinema Congress

Whew, it has been a while! And now I’m releasing some never-before-seen footage from the Hidden Cinema Congress that happened last month. I wrote about it in detail in this post.

And now I’m compiling the videos that I took from the said event. Here, you’ll be seeing film historian and academician, Nick Deocampo, film teacher Jag Garcia and and filmmaker Elvert Bañares.

For those who have not attended the event and for those who’d like to know what happened, I hope I was able to help you by sharing these videos. I feel like I’d have to do this to contribute to the documentation of the present and evolving landscape of Philippine cinema.
