August 30, 2017 (Philippines)
Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia’s latest film “Love You to the Stars and

Manila, Cebu and Davao.
The film, written and directed by Antoinette Jadaone, is a fresh take on fate, young love, and life.
Jollibee endorsers Joshua and Julia shared that the cheesy kilig moments in the movie are the best
paired with the new and improved Jollibee Cheesy Yumburger, now made cheesier because of its new
creamy cheddar cheese melted right on top of the Yumburger’s signature 100% beef patty!
Enjoy the new JoshLia starrer and the super cheesier, langhap-sarap Cheesy Yumburger, now available
for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru in all Jollibee stores nationwide. Prices start at 45php.
You will definitely love the movie and the Jollibee Cheesy Yumburger langhap-sarap experience….to the
stars and back
Review: My take on the movie.. It’s CUTE and it’s entirely FULL OF KILIG. I bet the JOSHLIA fans would be happy and not dissapointed but for me its good naman but I kinda felt that there were unnecessary characters inserted in order for JOSHLIA to have a moment of kilig parang how it became related to the movie.  I did cry in some scenes expecially when it comes to family. Overall its a good kilig movie and better to  watch it with JOLLIBEE CHEESY YUM BURGER 🙂

Take it to the Blindfold Test: Kenny Rogers Roasters Garlic Butter Roast

We were all in blindfolds at the event wondering what the lady with the sultry voice was instructing us to do.  Then it has come to the big reveal, it’s AROMATIC and I can smell the infused garlic – It’s THE GARLIC BUTTER ROAST!

Well I kinda had the idea since the launch the commercial of SOSBOLZ, Solenn Heausaff and Nico Bolzico – The good-looking and hilarious couple. These two are couple goals not only that they are LIFE GOALS and FITSPIRATIONS but it’s the kind of relationship they have (ofcourse they love each other) but who doesn’t watch Nico’s wifezilla instagram stories and Solenn is just cool about it. Solenn laughs at Nico all the time to the point where tears are coming out – that’s the kind of genuine relationship every girl looks for in a guy.

Going back to the Garlic Butter Roast, during the event it was served COLD maybe because it was prepped prior to the event but I personally feel if it was served like just got out of the oven it would taste great. Plus I love the potatoes served at the around the chicken. Who doesn’t love chicken and potatoes. The GBR is a healthy option because its ROASTED not fried with the homestyle goodness of garlic and butter. TASTE SO GOOD! 

It is already available in the menu! I have friends who ordered the GBR and its one of their faves on the KRR menu. So the latest offering WHOLE P550, HALF P295, QUARTER P160. For combo meal SOLO B BUTTER ROAST comes with a platter contains rice, mac n cheese, muffin, sauce, veggies and ofcourse the chicken (quarter) P250.00. The Garlic Butter Roast GROUP MEAL comes with the WHOLE CHICKEN, 4 side dishes, bowl of rice, coke and 4 muffins P820.00.

So head over the nearest Kenny Rogers Roasters near you and order or you can order online

Blog Review: Cherry Mobile Desire R7 PLUS

For a month, my sister and I tested how the DESIRE R7 PLUS works: The Desire Series is the latest collection of Cherry Mobile.

The last time I used Cherry Mobile was when the calculator phone was a trend. It was really handy, cute and not flashy especially for a college student. 


It’s overall look is sleek, modern and minimalist. The exciting part is the Fingerprint sensor – for EXTRA security reasons ofcourse. Setting up the fingerprint sensor is easy (Head over to settings). The phone is very light and the size is just right.


It comes in a black sleek box and the inside the compartment with the unit, the earphones and charger plus manuals on how to use the basic features, Cherry mobile fun club, Cherry Play manual and the warranty


My overall review for the phone is impressive For a price of  P5,999 not bad – It’s affordable .

CAMERA 3.5 /5

It’s not bad for a local android phone,  the first thing I checked was the camera ofcourse, Taking a selfie is way better than some local & international android phone but not as like the level of high end brands but it’s middle good. The rear cam, is good too especially taking photos under natural light. Indoor shots with light and in the dark is not as High Definition. It’s not a phone for instagrammable flatlay shots but is more or a  taking moments kind of phone and it works way better with NATURAL light. With the pictures you can edit it with the phone’s built in filters. 




It’s excellent and fast but it would vary on your internet connection also.The features on the phone gives a modern take among all cherry mobile series and it’s vibrant colors are appealing. The themes are cute and the applications/ icons on the display are bigger compared to other phone but it suits with the built of the phone . With it’s 5.5 inches HD IPS I enjoyed watching and streaming videos online. 


Maybe I’m not used having no button in the middle of the phone but I sometime forget that I have to swipe up in order to see the main navigational buttons. The touch and controls are user-friendly, not complicated and smooth. It’s fast and NOT lagging. 


Using the headphones that comes with it , excellent surround sound and the maximum volume is just right. Using other headphones, it’s okay but not loud. Technically it works better with a cherry mobile accessories. I tried jogging while listening to my playlist – it was okay for as long it is not loose. Loudspeakers is not that high definition surround sound and not that clear compared to other smart phones. 


Battery life is long lasting, for as long you don’t consume too much data/wifi. You get to charge it NOT as many times. 

SPECS: 4/5 

I don’t want to go so “techy” when it comes to the specs, as much I want to explain it in Layman’s point of view. Referring to the terms of like Nougat (it’s like the latest android version so it means it’s new) and RAM (3-4 Speed is good for the Desire R7 Plus). Overall, I think the phone is impressive and  not bad at all but my concern would be maybe when it comes to like heavy-duty files like games with extreme graphics  I don’t know how the capacity of the phone would take so far my sister has been playing application games there seem to be no problem. I could say, it would be an OKAY everyday phone to use 🙂 

  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • WIFI b/g/h BT 4.0
  • ROM 16 GB AND RAM 3 GB
  • 3000 mAh (non- removable) 

Blog Review: 100 Tula Para Kay Stella

Viva Films presents 100 na tula para kay Stella, Story and Direction by Jason Laxamana as one of the official entries of PISTA NG PELIKULANG PILIPINO, showing August 16. It’s an entire week of Locally produced films (No foreign films will be shown in regular cinemas) kaya supportahan natin mga pelikulang Pilipino!

Ticket prices are as follow:
P150 Students within Metro Manila
P100 Students outside Metro Manila
4+ 1 PROMO (regular priced ticket)
Regular priced ticket depending on the cinema


My take on this movie starts of light & charming. Fidel’s unrequited love for Stella started as their friendship flourishes in college. Fidel has a speech defect he only limits himself to 3 words and for long speeches he has to write it down. His character is being bullied by his peers because he stutters 🙁

He met Stella on Freshies night were Stella heard a singing voice outside the venue , she followed the voice then she spotted Fidel. That’s when his infatuation started with the girl with the black lipstick (Stella)

His teacher encouraged him to submit articles to the Seedling (The school’s official newspaper) since he love writing poems thus he begins to write for the girl with the black lipstick as inspiration. Then his teacher told him to give it to her personally thus till it reached 100 tula (till graduation) – that’s were the story revolved.

JC SANTOS Character Fidel, is someone you’ll love from his genuine sweetness and the total aspect of his character. His character progresses from this kid who was bullied to someone who achieved a lot. He became a hearthrob during his 3rd and 4th year when he moved to another university. His gay room mate discovered his talent in singing (the stuttering stops), thus encouraging hin to join a performing arts guild where he develops self confidence.

I didn’t know he could sing and yeah a friend told me he is a theatre actor – that’s why he is dynamic & versatile. Looking forward to see new projects for JC and you’ll love Fidel’s character in the movie – Most likely.

Bela Padilla – Well Stella, the muse at first she seemed fun to be with but as she flunks schools it seems her priorties weren’t straighten out. She wanted to break in the music scene. Thus being with different guys, she kinda used them. She admitted that in the movie. That’s why she never wanted to take advantage of Fidel, because Fidel would give anything for her. There was a scene were Fidel was offered singing gigs he didn’t cared actually, he planned to act sick and give the gig to Stella instead beacause it was her dream – act of true love! There was a scene Stella was vulnerable he never took advantage of that. That’s when she kinda drifted apart.

All I can say its NOT your typical story (This can happen in real life actually), there were scenes I got teary eyed especially the ENDING – may twist. Worth it ba yung 100 na tula!? Don’t worry they both get their happy endings.

I don’t want to be a spoiler but you better watch it! 100 tula para kay Stella NOW SHOWING!


What TV Would Give You the Ultimate Home Experience?


On weekends I am a homebuddy! And I personally love watching chick flicks and movie marathon with family and friends in the comfort of my very own home. I especially prefer watching on a wide & flat screen TV. The classic way but with updated technology.

I take into consideration the resolution because I like to feel as part of the movie also the surround sound as well to complete the experience. As a millenial we so have a lot of considerations from quality to budget.

The brand Samsung emerge, especially, Samsung KS800 which performed way better than the existing Samsung Q7F QLED TV.

According to reviews, the QLED performance did not match up with KS800 both contrast and peak brightness measure well above what the Q7F was able to output, especially in SDR. The Q7 does do better with color volume, and this does help with HDR content. QLED seemed overpriced also.

It has taken to some consideration the trend of Samsung is going down and as the masses/reviews has put into both they prefer the previous

Now we got a new condo and its my prime obligation to scout for a flat screen TV . We would put it up for rent and our target are the millennials so we have to match everything current. So can you guys suggest a watch worthy and reasonable flat screen?
