AXN Tops English GE Q1 2015 Ratings CSI:Cyber, The Blacklist and Asia’s Got Talent Take the Primetime Spotlight in SE Asia and Taiwan

PHILIPPINES (April 9, 2015) – AXN continued its thrilling streak in Q1 2015, claiming top spot in English general entertainment primetime ratings collectively in Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines and Taiwan.

As the dominant English GE channel across the region, AXN held 37 percent of the primetime viewing share among 20 competing channels, with ratings that were more than 60 percent higher than the next best rated English GE channel.

“Pilot” -- CSI: CYBER stars Emmy Award winner Patricia Arquette in a drama inspired by the advanced technological work of real-life CyberPsychologist Mary Aiken. Special Agent Avery Ryan (Arquette) heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. While other agents search for criminals in dark homes and alleys, Ryan searches the “dark net,” a place deep in the bowels of the web where criminals are anonymous, money is untraceable and everything is for sale with just a keystroke. CSI: CYBER will premiere Spring 2015, Sundays (10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Pictured: Patricia Arquette.  Photo: Monty Brinton/CBS  ©2014 CBS Broadcasting, Inc.

Add some flair to your hair with Flaired Hair Extensions

Here girls, your guide to getting the right hair extensions for you!

Ever wished your hair was longer or thicker for that special occasion? It may be your own birthday celebration, a wedding of a friend or a corporate party that you want to dress to impress more than the usual. But much to your disappointment, your hair has not grown long or thick enough to be heat-styled, colored, permed, straightened or trimmed the way you wanted to.

The solution is not waiting for several months to grow your hair, or putting yourself on expensive hair growth treatments that may have strange side effects. The easiest way to have longer, fuller hair is to get human hair extensions. Find that intimidating? Here is your complete guide from Flaired Hair Extensions on how to finally have that longer, fuller hair.

1. Choose your hair

There are three types of hair used for hair extensions: synthetic hair, animal hair, and human hair. Synthetic hair is made of colored plastic strands which make for good wigs. Only certain types of synthetic hair can only withstand a certain heat before it burns out. Animal hair is much coarser and thicker than human hair so it is not advisable to use it for finer or thinner hair (also, it’s quite icky!)

The best hair type is of course human hair especially if you want a natural look or a seamless blend between your hair and the extensions. Human hair allows you to treat the extensions like you own – you can heat style, color, perm, straighten or trim it to your taste.

PHOTO Color comparison PHOTO Human Hair


2. Choose your hair extensions attachment

You can braid, glue, sew, press and clip hair extensions to your hair or scalp in order for it to stay. One of the common ways to attach hair extensions is via snipping in micro-rings with hair strands, however, it can be uncomfortable as you have to adjust the way you wash and brush your hair.

PHOTO One piece vs Multi piece


One of the easiest and fastest attachment method is via one piece clip-on hair extensions. It allows you to quickly wear or remove hair extensions in a snap and by yourself, without need of extra tools. What differentiates “one piece” from multi-piece clip-ons is that you don’t need to put too many clips on your scalp – just one piece gives you a full head look.

 3. Choose your hair extensions thickness

Once you have chosen to buy hair extensions, you may be faced with two choices – double drawn or single drawn hair extensions? Single drawn hair extensions typically have a V-shaped quality because most of the hair strands do not reach their prescribed length. For example, if you order 20 inches of hair extensions, only about 10% of those strands actually reach 20 inches and the rest are much shorter. On the other hand, double drawn hair undergoes a second process of selection where shorter hairs are removed by hand so that it has a solid length from root to tip.

PHOTO Single Drawn vs Double drawn


That’s the basic information you need before getting your own hair extensions! Once you know these about hair types, attachment types and the difference between single and double drawn hair, you will be more apt to inquire with your provider on what products best fit your fashion and lifestyle.

Hair extensions are how celebrities and models can afford to have their natural short ‘do one day and glamorous longer locks the next. It’s no longer a secret that hair extensions make for a great beauty enhancer. Be sure to keep this guide on hand the moment you decide to avail of your own hair extensions!

For more information about Flaired Hair Extensions, you may visit their Facebook page via or follow them on Instagram via @flairedhairextensions. With only PHP 3500, you can already have your 20 inches of full head, double drawn human hair extensions for longer, fuller hair just like your own.

I am a fan of their “summer -set sail – bright colored interior”.

All of CaliBurger’s milkshakes are hand-spun and made with real rich creamy ice cream and fresh milk! (Price: Php175)

 Had the opportunity to try the different flavors of milkshakes. My fave is the Bubblegum flavor (Best seller), My next fave is the Coffee – its semi sweet  (I love coffee that’s why), Next Butterscotch  (Similar to sea salt caramel) and then Blueberry would place last. The difference between the Blueberry (More sweet) and Mixed Berry (This is lighter in the tummy)

  • Spicy “Chipotle BBQ Chicken Sandwich”

I am not really  allowed to consumed a lot of spicy food, but If you are a fan and into spicy food, you can definitely try this. Its delish but its up to you to handle the “spicy-ness”, Moderate spicy I could say. The condiments,  are compose of a JUICY and TENDER lemon & herb marinated chicken breast, GARDEN FRESH red plump tomatoes, CRISPY bacon, TANGY pickles, sliced onion, and their house made SPICY chipotle BBQ sauce, this hot new concoction by CaliBurger is sure to bring more heat this summer! (Price: Php 215 a la carte; Php295 meal with fries and drinks). It is GRILLED.

(Price: Php 185 a la carte; Php265 meal with fries and drinks). It is GRILLED too!

CD-R KING has been in the industry for 20 years and they recently brought in California E-bike in the Philippines.

Today’s modern world, Technology allows us to travel anywhere we desire but this also translates to 65% of air pollution in the metro.

Luckily, Technology has earned a good side by giving us an alternative by travelling in style and comfort on E-bikes.

Use of E-bikes does not require a person to hold a valid driver’s license neither does it require a registration. Helmet is not imposed but your safety is a personal choice.

California E-bike started its operation in the Philippines early 2013 with E-Scooter and later on came out with other variants of e-bikes. Today California E-bike offers more than 20 variants in more than 40 branches.

With the steady growth of e-bike followers, California E-bike is gearing towards its mission to improve transportation in an eco-friendly way, one e-bike at a time.

California E-bike variants ranges from personal use such as Berkley, Fresno, Hensley, Compton and Sierra to mid-range as Reedley, Colton, Canyon, Highland, Rialto, Ridge, Siberia, Davis, Ventura, Stockton and Avalon. They also offer business type models such as Ontario, Truckee, Maybury and Malibu.

Upgrades and Accessories are also offered by California E-bike for safety and aesthetics. Their shops also offer compartment upgrades, LED Spoke and wheel lights and bike motor locks to name a few.

To further your green living, California E-bike also offers a completely off the grid upgrade which consists of solar panel and a solar power adapter, with these enhancements, you save the environment as well as Energy.

California E-bike can be purchased as low as 10,000 pesos to 68,000 pesos, they also offer 3 t0 6 months credit card installments on all their e-bike models.

California E-bike is joining the Manila International Auto Show this April 9 to 12, 2015 at World Trade Center, you may visit them at Booth B71 to 72. On exhibit are their top e-bike models and allowing visitors to try these variants.


On hand in the exhibit is one of their latest offering- Malibu, this is their version of the Segway. Malibu boasts of a Lean steer frame (LSF) height adjuster, if you are familiar with Segway you know how hard it is to grip the height adjustment knob on the LSF.  Simply slip this tool over the knob and give it 1/4 to 1/2 turn beyond finger tight and your LSF will be much harder to move while gliding or pulling it up stairs.

Malibu- Known to others as “segway”. My friend and I enjoyed the Malibu, It is easy to navigate, still get a lot of getting to use too, but there is that element of fun. It is chargeable and  It is worth P68, 000. Malibu also features a smart balancing system that makes it user-friendly even for beginners.

Another featured variant is Berkely Smart Balance Wheel, with an Anti-slip rubber pedal and a 360 degree turning capacity. This variant is also equipped with a smart balancing system.

Into the Woods Musical


At the press launch of “Into the woods musical”, The actors have already exhibited their powerful vocal ranges in preparation of  their  upcoming stage performance to be held at BGC garden.



Photos by Charisse Abarico

People might have thought that they’ve decided to produce the musical because of the popular demand of the International  movie (Into the woods 2014) , but actually way before they’ve planned it before the movie was planned to be made. They’ve said that the movie actually helped them in promoting.

Renowned singer, Rachel Alejandro will be playing the witch, counterpart of Meryll Strip in the movie. To be narrated by Noel Trinidad, you might see him in one of your favorite primetime local shows. Then creatively directed by Joel Trinidad. The rest of the cast, some of them may be familiar faces, if you do attend local musicals, they are very talented, powerful vocals and suited for their roles.


Photos by Charisse Abarico

As I remembered, My friends and I watched the movie (Into the Woods 2014) at Vox cinemas. I didn’t expect it to be all throughout a musical. I actually had no idea about the gist,  I’ve seen the trailer, I thought it was a thriller movie “Haha”. But then if you watched the movie, The Beginning was all good and light but then the latter was dark and heavy. The movie makes you realize the reality of life. (You have to see the movie yourself  to point out what I meant)

If I could compare it to the movie, ofcourse I am amazed with the performance of the live actors because the diction and intonation of words were very clear. Along with singing, everything was flawless also with the choreography. You can’t believe how good the actors are and the production team is very resourceful because ideally the plot has different dimensions and they were able to bring it to live, it may not be as grand like the special effects on the movie but still they were able to pull it off. They were able to bring out the emotion needed by each character and compare to the movie, it was “hella funnier”, I could remember how hard I laughed. Maybe because the charisma of how pinoys show humor in facial expressions and how they could carry it, even though it is in English.




People have asked me if it is entirely similar to the movie? Well partly yes, but they’ve added a special character in the play. (That you have to watch). The main characters are still there, The Baker and his wife, Jack, Red Ridding hood – never failed to be herself, cute and annoying (in a good way, like in the movie) , and the witch. The rest of the supporting characters were in complete attendance.





Me and my friends really enjoyed the 2 hour play and you’ll be really be impressed with how much talent Filipinos are in performing musicals. Ticket sales are like hotcakes when I asked day after the preview. The ticket pricing are not bad, its a “live performance” and it is worth it.


Poshtips Blow Dry & Nail Bar


Poshtips is not your ordinary nail salon, like how you think. They specialize in nail art. Their nail stylist(s) are professionally trained,  Name it they can do it. What makes them different, is that they offer “ hair blow-dry” services, Filipinos aren’t that much aware of the concept of blow dry salons, Only because we grew up with the idea of beauty salons that provided everything. I grew up in a country (in the middle east) were women goes to salons, most of the time just to blow dry their hair to be done. One stop place to be “beautified” (don’t know if such term exist). Poshtips, wants to introduce this concept to the Filipino market. 

Poshtips, is a comfy place to chill and get pampered after a long stressful weekend. The ambiance is relaxing and the interior is “Victorian inspired” and you’ll love their couches. The staff are very accommodating and fun to chat with.

I got my nails styled the way I wanted, “Negative spaces and french tip”, and I love it <3 and for my toes, “quarter moon and black french tip” 


Maris(@mariesteller), Aina (@aiina_solano) and I had a good time getting pampered and having our nails done. After a long and tiring weekend, we deserve R&R.


We were also served baked goodies from @honeyveecakesph

Here are the other services they offer: 


Not bad right?
