My Heart Belongs to Miss Honduras

In any beauty pageant, it’s inevitable for the gawker who takes an interest in such things to play favorites. For the ongoing Miss Asia Pacific International Pageant 2017, my hands-down fave candidate is Miss Honduras.

It’s not a stretch to say that young actress Millie Bobby Brown has a bright career ahead of her.

Ginebra San Miguel Has Your Summer Sorted

  As far as liquors go, gin is as proletariat as you can get. Its popularity is undeniable; affordable and accessible to the mass market, it is an easy tipple of choice for those all-night drinking sessions with your uncles in the garage or those she-doesn’t-love-me-anymore emo-fests with your closest mates each time a girl […]

Super Nerda Fights Boredom and Saves Metro Manila!

If you can run fast like the Flash or have a sweet ride like Batman (Bruce Wayne says, “Fear me, traffic!”), you can still catch the last few shows of Super Nerda, the ass-kicking, fast-talking, superhero comedy play at the University of Santo Tomas. The creation of Kane Errol Choa brought to life by scriptwriter and director Jan […]
