Last Friday, Jan 20, ABS-CBN held an advance screening in Dolphy Theater for its newest Korean series “City Hunter”. The screening was attended by a few members of the press and bloggers and the fans of the series’ lead star, Lee Min Ho.  This is one of ABS-CBN’s pre-Chinese New Year offerings as there are many exciting shows lined-up for this year.


I’m actually one of those excited to watch the series since I saw the plug of “City Hunter”, on TV, it looks very promising and exciting.  The series is said to be one of the biggest and most expensive action, drama, suspense and romantic Korean series of 2011.  Plus Lee Min Ho looks really hot in the series as he prepared big for this project – he trained and buffed himself and keep fit as he did all the stunts. 



My excitement is no comparable to the fans that also came to watch the screening; they were very passionate and supportive of their Korean idol, Lee Min Ho. That’s why the network executives recognized the support and the phenomenal reaction of the fans when ABS-CBN finally announced the acquisition of City Hunter by having a special preview as a treat for them.

In the series, Min Ho plays the role of Johnny Lee, a charming and smarty young man who works at the Presidential residence called the Blue House.  Little did everyone know that behind his massive appeal to women, intelligence, and pleasing personality lies a son trained to kill and seek revenge for his father.  His mission is to make five politicians responsible for killing his father pay with their own lives.

"Walang Hanggan" Advance Screening

The first week episodes of ABS-CBN’s new prime time series, “Walang Hanggan” is set to bring you glued to your seats as you begin to watch its primer today, January 16.   I was privileged to be invited to its advance screening last Saturday together with the main cast of the series and other members of the press held at the Cinema 6 of SM Megamall.


I was still overwhelmed and still in awe with our local actors with their awesome performances shown in the premiere episodes.  I would like to give highlights, in random orders, for the scenes and performances of the series’ characters I love the most.


Richard and Dawn 

            During the drama films’ reign in the 90’s, the Richard-Dawn team-up is indeed the most remarkable one. I’ve seen their movies because my mom and my aunts are super “kilig” about their love team.  I was a little younger then but I knew that they’re one of the most beautiful pairs I’ve seen in screen plus the chemistry is really undeniable. But even if they do a project together or not, Richard and Dawn are too great actors who will shine bright because they already have established acting careers in separate projects they did not to mention the awards they already have received.

            In Walang Hanggan, be ready to find that “kilig” again and you’ll be surprised to see that these two, despite the years and different lives (and partners) they had, are still capable of pulling-off the chemistry on screen. For all Goma-Dawn fans, the first episodes are sure to watch for.

Ms. Helen Gamboa
           
            Throughout the screening, the most l can remember is the character of Ms. Helen Gamboa as “Margaret Montenegro”.  I remember the director of the series said that he was, somehow, reluctant to pull the character off from Ms. Helen since she has to portray the major villain role, all because she’s genuinely very kind and soft-spoken person in real life. And we can agree to direk Jerry’s claim because during the presscon, she was really nice, sweet and very respectful when answering questions.

            But in the series, once again, she has made me a big fan of her. I first admired her at “Tayong Dalawa” giving support to the role of her daughter then played by Agot Isidro. But in “Walang Hanggan” I guess she’ll be able to gain “haters’ ten times of probably she gained from her last series.  She was great! She was awesome and I can’t wait for more of her.
            I do believe that Ms. Helen’s role in the series is really worth to win her awards, I’m cheering for her whoooot!


Ms. Susan Roces and Eddie Guttierez

            I’m not really old but I can still remember that they used to be husband and wife in some movies before and I thought then that they were indeed a real-life couple. In the series, a lot of us will be able to understand and somehow discover one “great love” we can actually relate at one point in our lives. The story of love and sacrifice of Virginia is indeed admirable, and how her decisions will affect the lives and destiny of the people she loves is something to watch out for.

            Anyway, seeing Mr. Eddie Guttierez in ABS-CBN’s show is like a “wow”, just saying :).


Coco Martin

            Fast forward to the next episodes, Coco’s portrayal of the lead role is again a lot of times proof that he is indeed the prince of primetime television’s royalty. He had me and millions of viewers in his portrayal in “Tayong Dalawa” and I have no doubt that he will fail in everything he will do especially now that one of his indie films have gone international and earned recognitions. Coco seems not acting in his scenes in "Walang Hanggan", everything he do seems real. He’s full of life and as always, fantastic! Even Richard Gomez and Ms. Helen Gamboa has nothing but good words for Coco in this series, how was that coming from two of the most respectable actors of the local showbiz industry? 

           
            Coco’s charm is unexplainable, he can capture every woman’s heart and he’ll make every girl swoons for him. 


Julia Montes   


            At first I thought she’s too young for Coco Martin and their team-up wont click because the age difference will surely be noticed. Good that Coco’s aura was able to resolve that concern. In their scenes, you would surely notice that but somehow, their acting skills helped Julia and Coco to deliver what the viewers want to see in this series.  Their story started in their childhood but the love blossomed in their pre-adult years so I guess the age gap is disregarded already, just be prepared with more “kilig” because the two is sure to give that in the coming episodes. 


I’ll be posting the second part of my reviews tomorrow; I hope you'll have a good time watching the pilot episode of “Walang Hanggan”. :)

Samsung Electronics Philippines  Corporation ( SEPCO), a  leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of its premium Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC during its press conference at Time Bar in Makati City.

This enables a faster start-up as well as increased overall performance with up to two times faster web browsing (based on Microsoft Internet Explorer) and two seconds wake-up.




In addition to exceptional speed, the Series 7 CHRONOS also delivers maximum performance in its high quality display. Incorporating Samsung’s latest ‘MAX screen’ technology, the Series 7 CHRONOS enables users to experience an extra inch of immersive viewing without sacrificing mobility or portability with the 15” display contained within the form factor traditionally associated with a 14” model.

In addition to the battery life of up to 8 hours on a single charge (based on MobileMark test scores), Samsung’s Battery Life Plus technology keeps 80% of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than other notebooks.



See More, Experience More
 

Samsung’s elite engineers have succeeded in greatly reducing the bezel size of the Series 7 CHRONOS, allowing a 15” display to fit into a profile usually used for 14” models. The result is a stunning viewing experience, with a larger screen in the form factor of a smaller model.

The Series 7 CHRONOS also benefits from Samsung’s Superior LCD technology, a display that delivers a next-generation HD+ (1600x900) high-resolution viewing experience. The Series 7 CHRONOS boasts of SuperBright 300nit brightness, 16 million colors and an anti-reflective screen, films and pictures look rich, vivid and crisp, with noticeable improvements in color depth.

Avril Lavigne Live in Manila Concert


Press Release:


When singer, songwriter, and musician Avril Lavigne first burst upon the music scene at age 17, she was known as a young, pop-punk tomboy who refused to resort to skin-baring come-ons, preferring to entice the record-buying public with her powerhouse voice, high-spirited melodies, and straight-talking lyrics. Staying steadfastly true to herself and putting music before image paid off both critically and commercially for the Canadian-born artist. Over the course of her three albums, Lavigne scored a string of international hit singles: “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” “I’m With You,” “Losing Grip,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “My Happy Ending,” “Nobody’s Home,” “Keep Holding On,” “Girlfriend,” “When You’re Gone,” “Hot,” and “The Best Damn Thing.” She earned eight Grammy Award nominations, won seven Canadian Juno Awards, and sold more than 30 million albums and nearly 20 million tracks worldwide over the past eight years.
