I realized when I was young instead of being full of idealism I should have set some goals. Well I guess I did accomplish a lot of things during highschool but I didn’t write down a list, I just had desires to be this and that, then I wasn’t focus also- comes with being young (wala pa wisdom)
#Goals by Andrea Brillantes, sets a perfect example that people her age should be focusing on goals instead of other necessary things. You’ve seen teens nowadays compared to us when we were young teen (I’m referring to us Millenials or Generation X) WE OLD HAHA
Andrea Brillantes book is called #Goals Your epic journey to be the best of you comes in 2 covers, one in pink where she is all girly and the one in purple is like rocker/edgy chic but both same content. ) The book will be available in all National bookstore branches for just P195. I envy her because at the age of 13, she achieved goals and milestones- she has a book, she is an actress, big fan base, endorsements and lots of followers on social media. People took more notice of her when she posted her musically videos online.
The thing I share in common with this gal is that, pareho makapal kilay namin (I grew up with a unibrow actually) – just like me she maintains it by waxing and threading and YES, we don’t use fillers much. And we talked about make up and we both like Kylie lipkits/ cosmetics. In her book she shares her tips on applying makeup suitable for her age and her OOTDS ofcourse. It’s cute she has this page of doll cut outs and you can dress up Andrea.
The book compromises of different chapter with fun-filled activities, the first part is like a scrapbook and BTW her real name is BLYTHE GOROSTIZA (That’s why people were calling her Bythe at the book launch- love the name, very unique).In the book there are comic strips about her life like she was bullied before and the auditions she had to go through.
I like the “BrillanTIPS” part because it gives wisdom for those her age, she is an advocate of anti-bullying because she experience it first-hand and how she wants this to stop and tips on how to deal with bullies IRL and in social media. I do agree that popularity doesn’t matter when you get older, it maybe a stigma from where you come from and the people involve but It won’t matter because you’ll meet new people (some mature or immature- you just need to know how to handle different people) and life after college matters way more- TRUST ME. She mentioned her dream role is to be a “DARBEL” (Darna and Dyesabel), so there is a page where Darbel is brought to life into an animated drawing.
Well I would recommend this book for the tweens and teens (Give it to my younger siblings ) but I’ve surpassed that stage in my life and kids these days need those kind of wisdom. Popularity, kids is not everything, I’ve learned something from a symposium I attended this week which I can correlate with this blogpot is that, I asked a priest on “What have you been looking for, and what goal should that be”, He answered is “Being yourself”- Just be happy, Love yourself and Live Honestly & be SMART!
CRIME THRILLER THE BLACKLIST SEASON 4 SET TO PREMIERE ON AXN WITH MORE SHOCKING TWISTS
SEPTEMBER 27 at 9:45PM
PHILIPPINES (September 9, 2016) – AXN turns up the drama this month with the gripping return of the critically acclaimed thriller, The Blacklist.
In season four, premiering on September 27 at 9:45pm, former U.S. Naval Intelligence Officer turned criminal mastermind Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has become the FBI’s Most Wanted Fugitive. For decades, he evaded capture until he voluntarily surrenders to FBI Assistant Director Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix). He claims he has in his possession a “blacklist” of the world’s most dangerous criminals he has been associated with during his nefarious career and is willing to cooperate with the FBI to bring them down under two conditions: immunity from prosecution, and that he insists on working exclusively with Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone), a newly assigned rookie profiler with the FBI.
Teaming up with special agents Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff), Aram Motjabai (Amir Arison), and Samar Navabi (Mozhan Marnò) , Reddington and Liz join ranks, use all available resources and technology of the FBI, and will never stop at nothing until all names on his list are crossed out – either arrested or eliminated.
Along the way, Cooper, Keen, and the other agents become suspicious of the real motives of Reddington. They are not aware of the behind-the-scenes maneuverings perpetrated by Reddington as he manipulates to his end the trust of his former allies. Little did they know that for every case they work on, for every criminal they track down and apprehend, Reddington always has a hidden agenda for his own personal gain. Moreover, Keen starts to question Reddington’s interest in her, not content in hearing him say that she is “very special” to him.
For years, Reddington has sacrificed everything, even to the point of risking his life to protect Keen. But his efforts seem to be for nothing. Feeling betrayed, Keen loses focus, gets involved with the shooting of a high-ranking government official, and lands in the FBI’s Most Wanted list. In the end, she is determined to get away from what she perceives to be the controlling and overprotective Reddington. She devises a clever way and successfully does, but her plan backfires. Keen ends up in the hands of Reddington’s longtime nemesis, Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen), who claims to be her real father.
Everything becomes even more personal in the latest installment of the highly anticipated series. Reddington rescues Keen from Kirk, but their reunion casts a cloud of doubt on their relationship. The rivalry between Reddington and Kirk takes a dark turn. As Keen confronts her past, Ressler suddenly figures in her life. Is Kirk really Keen’s father? If not, who is? And the burning question will finally be answered: How is Reddington related to Keen that he cares so much about her?
The critically acclaimed crime thriller has received positive reviews for showing an ingenious and compelling crime procedural. Television critics have praised James Spader’s riveting performance as criminal-turned-informant Raymond Reddington, earning him a nomination for Best Actor – Television Series Drama in the Golden Globe Awards for two consecutive years, 2014 and 2015. He was also nominated for Best Actor in a Television Series in the Saturn Awards in 2014.
The Blacklist Season 4 premieres the same week as the U.S. telecast on September 27, every Tuesday at 9:45 pm. First & Exclusive on AXN
AXN is seen on Cable Link Channel 38, Cignal Digital TV Channel 61, Global Destiny Cable Channel 61, Dream Channel 20, GSat Channel 51, and SKYCable Channel 49.

You can check my Movie Review for Camp Sawi http://www.krishgeek.com/?p=2172
PARA sa lahat ng nagmahal, umasa, pinaasa, nasawi at hirap mag-move on, hatid ng VIVA Films at N2 Productions ang kakaibang istorya ng limang babaing may iba’t ibang karanasan at kasawian sa pag-ibig sa pinakabago nitong handog, ang “CAMP SAWI,” na mapapanood na sa mga sinehan nationwide simula August 24 (National Sawi Day).
Ang “CAMP SAWI” ay produksyon ni Bb. Joyce Bernal para VIVA Films at N2, sa panulat at direksyon ni Irene Villamor. Ito ay pinangungunahan ng lima sa pinakamaiinit at pinakainaabangang young actresses ngayon na kinabibilangan nina Andi Eigenmann, Bela Padilla, Yassi Pressman, Kim Molina at Arci Muñoz. Kasama rin sa cast ang Kapamilya hunk na si Sam Milby at Kapuso actor na si Dennis Trillo.
Bilang Bridgette (Bela), Jessica (Yassi), Gwen (Arci), Joan (Kim) at Clarisse (Andi), magtatagpo ang landas ng limang bida sa loob ng isang kampo na nilaan para sa mga taong hirap makapag-move on sa heartbreak.
Bank teller si Bridgette, na hiniwalayan ng long-time Chinese boyfriend. Sampung taon sila naging mag-on, pero mas pinili ng lalaki na makasal sa iba kaya naiwang luhaan at umaasa si Bridgette.
Si Jessica naman, isang young perky cheerleader na hinwalayan ng kanyang varsity na boyfriend.
Si Gwen, miyembro ng isang banda na kinabibilangan rin ng kanyang boyfriend. Hiniwalayan siya nito dahil ‘di na raw masakyan ng mgaka-grupo nito ang trip niya pati na rin ang sobrang pagka-angas niya.
Si Joan, namatayan ng fiancé matapos itong mag-propose sa kanya.
At panghuli, ang dating actress na si Clarisse, hindi makapag-move on sa pagiging number 2 niya.
Lahat sila, mag-eemote at huhugot ng tapang at lakas mula sa guwapo at batang head coach at resident chef ng Camp Sawi na si Louie (Sam).
“Super fun movie” ang “Camp Sawi” kung i-describe ni Bela.
Kitang-kita naman ang saya nila sa nag-trend na “Limang Bobo” spoof video ng sikat na hugot song ngayon na “Tatlong Bibe.”
Pati ang mga dialogue at payo ng mahadera pero kwelang “Lola,” pinag-uusapan din sa iba’t ibang online sites.
Hirit ni Arci, masaya ang pelikula dahil parang wala pang nagagawang ganitong istorya. Sigurado umano siya na maraming moviegoers ang makaka-relate sa mga pinagdaraanan nila sa movie.
“At saka ‘yon yung tipo na, kunwari, mapapanood mo siya, parang gusto mo talaga na magkaroon ng Camp Sawi.
“Marami kasi ang nagiging brokenhearted. Minsan hindi talaga nakakapag-move on kasi napakahirap naman talaga mag-move on.”
Ani Bela, kakaiba ang Camp Sawi dahil naka-focus ito sa mga karanasan ng female characters pagdating sa heartbreak at moving on.
“Feeling ko, first time nating makakakita ng movie na ‘yong chemistry between girls ay hindi kailangang katulad ng pinapanood natin dati — isang girl at isang guy.
“Mas makikita rito ‘yung relationship naman ng mga babae, kung paano sila magtutulungang mag-move on,” dagdag niya.
Super saya raw talaga dahil magkakaibigan naman sila sa totoong buhay kaya dumali ang pagbi-blend ng kanilang mga characters.
Kaya, sama na’t maki-emote kina Andi, Bela, Yassi, Kim at Arci para tuluyan nang maka-move on sa pagkasawi dito lang sa “CAMP SAWI”mula sa VIVA Films at N2 Productions, showing na simula sa August 24 (National Sawi Day).

We all have our fair share of moving on, People just say “Move on ka na” – Well “mahirap talaga maka move on” and the fact that there is still “hope”. Camp Sawi is a movie about the “limang bobo” who try to move on from their previous relationships and seek refuge in a camp where they can do anything, a place with no signal at all- a detox from reality and a detox from MEN (haha).
This movie involves the 5 girls working out their ways to finally move on. Well a lot of hugot-dropping in this film and it was definitely funny. If you were seated beside me you would actually hear me scream “Ow em!” so many times. In every scene, the movie goers would clap and applaud for every relatable line. The part were I laughed the most is the scene with “Bela, Arci and Sam”- just watch it guys.
The premiere was a blockbuster, this was my first time attending for Viva Films and the number of people that attended – it came to a point where some sat on the floors (?).
Do I recommend this film- YES, a score of 4/5. The thing is the movie was so overwhelming, good and so funny! It was straight to the point and kinda bitin (ending). Maybe because I am a romantic, some of the stories of the protagonist were cliffhanging – but’s that’s LIFE they still continue to find themselves. Some got their happy-endings and others are still in the state ” BALANG ARAW”. That is reality they have to learn to be on their own and love themselves until they meet the right one. I am a firm believer that maybe sometimes, we may not yet be ready because its not yet the RIGHT kind of love we deserve. Maybe there is a possible part 2 in the works? But yeah if you want a good laugh, bring your friends and watch it together – It’s nice to get a good laugh with a friend or friends tapos “REMISNISCING” when you were at that stupid and “umaasa” state of your life.
You’ll love the cinematography of Batayan Island in Cebu, a lot of drone shots were taken and how captivating the beauty of the island is. And the outfits, style and looks of the characters A+
The actors who portrayed the roles, Bela Padilla who plays “Bridgette”, the story actually starts with her and this movie is her breakthrough as an artist she gets to show her funny side, how a versatile actress she really is. Her chinoy boyfriend of 10 years breaks up with her.- What kind of guy would make it that long to 10 years if he doesn’t plan to marry her- the nerve! There is a part in the movie about a joke about dating Chinese guys HAHA- which is true for me.
Arci plays as “Gwen”, such a funny character and you’ll love her! Her ex- boyfriend who is her bandmate broke up with her. That is a scene where you will really pitty Gwen, despite her rough exterior, she has a soft heart and “madali ma-fall si ate girl”.
Sweet face Yassi, who plays “Jessica”- I swear “Ang sexy ni Yassi! “. She found out something about her ex-boyfriend who had a deep and dark secret. Her character is young that’s why her mind is still full of idealism. – (“Sa mga bata jan, bata pa kayo marami pa kayo ma memeet- many fishes in the sea”)
This is the most sophisticated and mature acting I’ve seen Andi Eigenmann who plays “Clarisse”- she plays as the “other woman” and despite being strong and wise- she has these pilled up emotions deep down inside and conscience to deal with.
Newbie Kim Molina plays “Joan”, her fiancée died when he proposed to her – wished this girl had more exposure but there is something promising about her and maybe see more of her in any upcoming projects.
There are more things to look for in this movie and other relatable characters. The moral of the movie for me, Okay lang masaktan, Mag DABDA ( 5 stages of grieving, DENIAL, ANGER, BARGAINING, DEPRESSION & ACCEPTANCE) ka, Time is a great healer and when you are ready (It’s all up to you) , bumangon ka and magpaganda ka! – Hindi ka kawalan girl and you deserve better, and “one day” 🙂
Camp Sawi Showing Nationwide starting August 24, 2016! Directed by Irene Villamor brought to you by VIVA FILMS and N2 Productions.

MEDICAL SERIES SET IN A WORLD OF CRIME AND MYSTERY ENTHRALLS VIEWERS WITH ITS DARK CHARM
Philippines, August 5 –Phenomenal TV series Body of Proof proves to be a masterful piece of work which mesmerizes viewers with the shadowy appeal of each episode.
Dr. Megan Hunt was the head neurosurgeon at a Philadelphia hospital. She eventually lost her job due to an unfortunate accident which caused her to have paresthesia, a condition brought about by severe nerve damage and which brings about tingling and numbness to her hands. Without prior awareness of the condition, she performed an operation in which the patient died.
After a few years, Dr. Hunt was able to acquire a job as a medical examiner. Considering her extensive experience as a medical practitioner, she is able to dig deeper into some of the most mind-boggling crimes performed on a dead person’s body. Mimicking a seemingly modern day Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Hunt utilizes extraordinary ways of solving the puzzles. While on the job, she is supported by her boss, Dr. Kate Murphy, and her fellow medical examiner, Peter Dunlop, who is a former policeman. Dr. Hunt may be the best in her field, but how does she juggle her personal and work life with the pressures from the police department?
Body of Proof is created by Christopher Murphey. It stars Dana Delaney as Dr. Megan Hunt, Jeri Ryan as Dr. Kate Murphy, and Nicholas Bishop as Peter Dunlop.
Catch Body of Proof on Sony Channel everyThursday at 8:50pm.
Sony Channel is available on SKYCable Channel 35, Cignal Digital TV Channel 60, Destiny Cable Channel 62, Cable Link Channel 39.

I would like to share tidbits of how awesome Selena Gomez was last night, I couldn’t help it that I wanted to just blog and share the feeling. Well there goes my bucketlist, Selene and Demi (twice already). For so many years as a concert attendee this is the only time I decided to post a blog about it- since during the days I don’t have a blog yet and I was newbee at blogging. I love going to concerts (That’s sounds one of those best places to bring a date haha).
Anyways, Selena was amazing – she bloom from her shy teeny bopper Disney days to like a total performer like Beyonce (Beyoncé is still the queen- hoping to watch her concert). Total performer, she even played a keyboard to one of her songs. Quick story to share: Just a few days I was in Toronto, Beyoncé had a concert at Roger’s Stadium. The tour guide mentioned it to us while we were riding a boat viewing the skyline.- Thanks a lot wished I knew and came earlier. That should be next time my itinerary when I visit international waters check for any events and concerts. Too bad my friend asked me to watch DNCE but we went uphill to camp – but I love being in one with nature something seldom I do in Manila.
Anyways, I love every wardrobe she wore at the concert- very edgy and chic. Pieces styled by Sami Miro who came on tour with her. Well I think she had 5 outfit changes in total. My fave looks were the one she wore a robe with a black top and matchy boxing shorts with knee-high-heeled boots next would be she wore this athleisure getup with a hoodie- the girl has abs. Then the classic slit black dress.
She slayed every song and gladly most of the songs she played ones I knew! Like Come and Get It, Revival, Kill Em With Kindness, Same Old Love, I want you to know, Hands to Myself- current fave, Who says- fave song since I was in college. The concert run for an hour and a half- it was awesome. Looking forward to my other concert happenings and hopefully I can post them.
Before the concert – As usual the concert didn’t start on time – what’s new. Tips: bring a Powerbank or anything that could entertain you while waiting. You can eat inside while waiting too since food and drinks coming from outside is prohibited. Darren Espanto was the front act- been seeing this kid all the time to every event I go to, kid with talent that’s why my parents were rooting for him when he was starting at The Voice Kids.
People would ask me is it fun to go to concerts alone or with someone. Well I can’t say which is much better because both has pros and cons – depends on your perspective. If you are alone, yeah you are lonely but there are other concert goers that go alone too and maybe you can make friends, have the guts to introduce to yourself (but not all your complete information maybe you can talk about the artist and some knowledge you know – it’s better to be safe and you just met the person). Once the concert starts people start to do their own thing while watching. If you go with someone, yes you have someone to talk too and take pictures of you- definitely have a good time.
How about you guys? Any concert experiences and tips? 🙂
