  • Yael Yuzon's 'other side', revealed!

    We've known Karylle as a singer, actress and a song writer. Now she gives us a glimpse of her "other side".

    Relatively private about her love life, Karylle now lets us take a peek at the other side of her beau, Yael Yuzon, vocalist of the band Sponge Cola.

    Here's a video produced by Karylle herself, directed by Nani Naguit; animation by: Alwyn Cruz; Actor: Garry Lopez.

    Here's what Karylle has to say too:

    Thank you to the wonderful owners and staff of EDSA Garden House ( It's right in the middle of EDSA! You can ask for help in making your own herb garden. It's easy! If Yael can do it, so can you =) Thank you Ms. Pearl for sharing her knowledge in gardening.

    Disclaimer: Yael is not an actual "farmer," Direk Nani simply started calling him a "farmer" and the name stuck somehow.

    Sponge Cola will hold a concert Maximum Capacity at the Music Museum on 19 July 2013, 9:00 PM, with special guests Mr. Gary Valenciano, Zia Quizon and more.  (For Ticket inquiries, please call Music Read More »from Yael Yuzon's 'other side', revealed!
  • Back to Hong Kong and into Macau!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but during my childhood in the 80s, Hong Kong was probably the top destination for most Filipino families who had a travel budget. If you had a bigger budget, I'm guessing L.A. would be a common destination too.

    I'm not basing this on any statistics, just on the number of childhood photos (a.k.a. Pixelated #ThrowbackThursday photos on Instagram), obligatory HK plates taken in the key scenic spots, and magnets I've seen in friends' houses.

    As a grown up, Hong Kong disappeared from my dream destinations since it was all about Esprit shops for me as a kid. Thankfully, cheaper flights and shows abroad brought me all around the world and I finally convinced myself to go back to Hong Kong as an adult! To stay true to theme, my trip back to my childhood required a stay at the Disney hotel.

    The best part was waltzing in the huge garden where they played orchestra versions of all the beautiful Disney songs. I loved meeting and

  • I lived a forgotten dream!

    It's been a while since my last post.  Despite my fatigue from my daily "Showtime" and rehearsals for the revival of "Rama Hari," the pop ballet musical that's opening Friday, Nov. 30 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, nothing could stop me from sharing what happened today.

    Today, I lived my dream…well, sort of…

    I danced on the CCP main theater stage. I sang most of the time but I was able to do my everyday twirls (if you know me, you'd know I randomly twirl several times a day) on "THE STAGE."

    I even met the very handsome premiere danseur Nonoy Froilan.  I found a way to dance with him as he corrected our little dance number to be more true to the original that he performed in 1980.

When BP founder Alice Reyes saw me, she giggled and asked me to go on pointe and she said "nice feet" to which I let out a super kilig sound which I cannot recreate in words.

  • #OnHIGHerGround the Concert

    Gary Valenciano serenades his fans at the Music Museum during his concert. (NPPA Images)Every time Tito Gary has a concert, I always feel a #HEIGHtened excitement and make an event of it. This year, since I have been trying my best to support the OPM concert scene, I have vowed to watch one OPM concert for every foreign act that I watch. To my mind, it balances things out in the music world somehow. Going back to the concert, since our families have #HIstory, I made sure my mom @zsazsapadilla, sister @ziaquizon and I were in complete attendance for Tito Gary's concert. We don't simply call each other "family friends" but we do call each other "POF" or "Part-of-Family" since Mama and Tito Gary have been singing partners since the 80s. It was rather amusing that Tito Gary would suddenly talk to my mom during the concert about random things as if they were onstage together. They have been performing in concerts and are finally starring in a movie together together where in they pay tribute to the music of the APO Hiking Society. This is where we play connect the dots.

  • Juris Fernandez Forevermore: A Birthday Treat

    On Saturday March 10, Juris is celebrating her birthday with a concert in Music Museum.

    Here's Juris inviting you all to her birthday party!

    Juris Forevermore: A birthday treat concert posterThere have been an overwhelming number of foreign acts that visit the country and I think it's important to show OPM artists some love once in awhile. So, I asked some friends of mine on Twitter about their favorite Jurissong and why they love this talented girl who won the Best Album award at the 24th Awit Awards for  "Juris, Now Playing."  This is what the music lovers have to say...

    Here's a shout-out from her kababayan from Davao =)

    Faye Alicarte - @shheeeboom  I love Juris because she's a proud dabawenya! :)

    And here are some tweets from her good friends from the music industry:
