WATCH: ANG BIYAHE NI MARLON (2018) TRAILER

I was pleasantly surprised the other day when the organising committee informed me that the poster and trailer of our film will kickstart the social media campaign of the festival leading to the gala and awarding night.

In case news didn’t reach you yet, I’m talking about the first-ever Istorya ng Pag-Asa Film Festival, which is organised by the Office of the Vice President and Ayala Foundation.

Our film tells the story of Marlon Fuentes, a driver with Tourette Syndrome (T.S). Instead of being discouraged by people who look down on his condition, Marlon is motivated to continue working to support his family and to serve as an inspiration to the people who have T.S. This film aims to raise awareness about Tourette Syndrome in the Philippines.

And I’m actually very excited and nervous at the same time because it will have its premiere on June 12 at Glorietta!! I’ve never experienced showing my film to that many people, I mean equivalent to the size of a commercial theater based in Makati! But I’m all out positive with this one!

Please see below the trailer of our film:

Ang Biyahe Ni Marlon is our official entry to the first-ever Istorya ng Pag-Asa Film Festival organized by the Office of the Vice President and Ayala Foundation.

Below is our teaser poster! This is made by my friend, Ran Perez, who is a brilliant graphic designer! I’m excited to share this with all of you. It’s going to have its premiere on June 12 at Glorietta Cinema. I’ll keep you guys posted! 🙂

What you should pack in your Travel Kit

TOSS: Travel Kit Must-Haves

No matter where you’re heading for your next travel, there are few must-have items that will make everything run a bit more efficiently. Get to know four items that will make a handy Must-Have Travel Kit.

1. BANDANA
There are countless ways to use a bandanna: hair tie, headband, scarf, hand towel, lens cleaner and even cooling device (when dampened)! It can even transform to a hobo handbag to tote your travel items.

2. TRAVEL MUG

It’s not just for drinking! An empty travel mug can be used to avoid scratch and carry sunglasses. Just make sure you secure the screw top.

3. SANITIZING WIPES

You can clean your dirty hands with these (or just about any body part!). And they’re also helpful to wipe of dust off tables, doorknobs and other public spaces. Plus, on a sunny day, you can use them to refresh your face.

4. ZIP LOCS

Maximize them by making them as handy organizers (toiletries, make-up, etc). They’re also multi-purpose: storing food items like crackers, candies, etc; separating wet items from dry ones; and storing different currencies.

To be hassle-free on your next travel, don’t forget to pack these.

Why it’s more fun in the Philippines

Why it’s more fun in the Philippines…

Traveling is enriching. Not only do you get to take home with you some souvenir items, but more importantly, you get to treasure priceless memories. But before jet setting all over the world, take time to explore your home land.

Here in the Philippines, we’ve got a lot of recognised tourist spots that are so fascinatingly beautiful, it makes you proud to be living in a country that is blessed with so much natural resources.

So here are the top reasons why you should travel in the Philippines:

1. Nature, Paradise Beaches and Idyllic Islands

Boracay. Palawan. Caramoan. These majestic islands have earned the praise from both local and international tourists and travel guides. People from all over the world rave about how beautiful and lush these islands are. And these are just few of the notable spots that get everyone talking (and flocking)… We’ve got 7,104 islands more for you to choose from to get that perfect sun-kissed getaway! All you have to do is choose and plan the trip now!

2. People and the Culture

You have to admit it, Filipinos are friendly, accommodating and hospitable. It is just the way we naturally are, be it to fellow Pinoys or foreigners. In fiestas, we invite people—even those we don’t know– to eat inside our house for them to taste our home-cooked meals! Also, much to the appreciation of tourists, we gladly entertain their queries whenever they’re lost or in need of some expert piece of advice where to go next. In the Philippines, it’s not just the weather that is sunny, people are also warm.

3. Food

Pinoys love to eat! And it obviously shows everywhere- from buffets to “unli” meals. Aside from our very own mouth-watering specialties such as adobo, kare-kare and sinigang, we’ve also got intriguing exotic delicacies like balut, kamaro, stuffed frogs and so much more. Since we’re an archipelago, sea foods are also very much available almost everywhere we go. They’re served fresh at an affordable price.

4. Language

We’ve got one official language which is Filipino, and several dialects, but we’re also very much proficient in the “universal language”—English. This makes it easier for us to communicate with people other than our own.

So what are you waiting for? Go and explore, after all, it’s more fun in the Philippines!

Cheers!
