"Rock and Ross" - A Light Talk with Arny Ross

It was already two years ago when I first met the GMA's so-called "Darling of the Dance floor", Arny Ross Roque or simply Arny Ross. Yes, she was one of the cast members of the previous Alden Richards' teleserye, "Mundo Mo'y Akin."

Arny is now one of the main casts of the hit gag show "Bubble Gang" and the member of the show's girl group called "Bubble Shakers."

During our early Christmas event in the Kapuso network dubbed as "PaGMAmahalan Blog Con,"  me and Arny met again and shared light talks. She and the Kapuso comedian Betong joined the event representing their gag show "Bubble Gang."

Arny is actually a product of the GMA's 2013 artista search  Protégé: The Battle For The Big Artista Break under Gina Alajar and later to Phillip Salvador wherein she represented the Southern Luzon in that season. In that said show, she formed a love team with the show's grand winner and also my friend Jeric Gonzales. 

After the said artista search competition, Arny appeared in the different GMA TV shows. And now she became popular being part of the longest-running gag show on TV, "Bubble Gang."

According to Arny, the gag show paved way for her stardom. Their group called the 'Bubble Shakers' where she showcases her dancing talent is now a household name. That even landed her to become a cover girl of the FHM 2015 issue. She even ranked No. 26 in the magazine's 100 Sexiest Women for 2015. 

In person, Arny is also cool and kalog. She has full of humors. And yes, she also loves taking pictures just like yours truly! :) 

Of course, we had our wacky selfies together! Check these out:

Arny also revealed the exciting surprises of "Bubble Gang" as it celebrates its 20TH Anniversary. They will introduce more new segments and more new performances from their group. And of course, there will be a big celebration wherein the original casts of the show namely Ara Mina, Sunshine Cruz, Diana Zubiri, and Assunta De Rossi rejoin them!

Great meeting you again Arny! We really enjoyed the day. See you again soon. More new projects to come! (RCB)

An Early Christmas Treat from Kapuso's #PaGMAmahalanBlogCon

With this year's Christmas theme of "MaGMAmahalan Tayo Ngayong Pasko," GMA-7 treat bloggers with an early Christmas event dubbed as "PaGMAmamahalan Bloggers'Conference."

Held at the Mom & Tina's Bakery Cafe in Sgt. Esguerra St., Quezon City just this Tuesday afternoon, November 17, 2015, the event combined a fun Christmas activities, a launch of the environmental campaign NowPH, a look on the GMA's exciting TV shows for the last quarter of 2015, and interesting Question and Answer portions from the Kapuso stars present during the event.

Inline with the "PaGMAmahalan" theme, the bloggers can bring their loved ones on the event and enjoy happiness together with them and with the Kapuso stars. GMA also surprised us with exciting Christmas gifts and sweets straight from their hearts.

Here are some of our happines photos during the event where we shared love from one another. I even posed selfie with my gifts from the Kapuso network:

The event was also divided into four major programs namely a Facebook Chat with Dingdong Dantes; the launch of the Now.PH environmental act; forum with the casts of "Buena Familia" namely Julian Trono and Kylie Padilla; and cool talks with the "Bubble Gang" stars Betong and Army Rose.

Of course I took the oppurtunity to have a pictorial with them on the GMA wall. Here are some of our photos: 

The event woudn't be completed if I haven't got a chance to have a selfie with the Kapuso stars. Here are some of my selfies with Betong and Arny:

Yes, these were only few. I'll share more photos on my next posts. Treat this one as a teaser since I'll be sharing moments with them separately on my succeeding posts! :)

Meanwhile, the Kapuso stars also entertained the bloggers during the event. Julian showcased his dancing stints as he performed dance numbers to the tune of the current hit dance music including "Twerk It Like Miley." Betong on the other hand serenaded us with the classic OPM love song "Ikaw Ang lahat Sa Akin." And surprisingly, Kylie showcased her unique talent barking like a dog. 

That was really a day filled of love, fun, and happiness! Thank you and congratulations Kapuso for organizing an early Christmas treat like this! Looking forward for more surprises on the coming days! Let's spread the love! #MaGMAhalanTayo! Truly #ProudKapuso! (RCB)

On the Way to Complete the Stickers for the Starbucks Planner 2016

I'm on a momentum to complete faster than expected the required stickers for the Starbucks Planner 2016. Right now, I have 9 stickers and 9 more to go to complete the 18 stickers.

Hopefully before the end of November, I can post my third Starbucks planner which is a real fruit of my perseverance! It's a coffee everyday session to gain more stickers! I always order my favorite frappucino everytime I visit the nearest Starbucks coffeeshop in our area. 

On the photo above is my ordered Christmas frapp together with my sticker booklet, my Starbucks card, and my newly-bought cool cellphone pouch for my iPhone 6. Do your love it?! I'll share more starbucks coffee sessions in my next post. And of course, I will update you with the latest counts of my sticker collection. Stay tune! (RCB)

#ThrowbackThursday: The Starbucks Planners Then and Now

It's a season of Starbucks Planner once again! And yes I admit, yours truly is now an avid collector of this cool planner since 2013. This year will be my third time to get crazy in collecting stickers for this planner.

As I've told you in my month-opener post, I will share with you my daily coffee moment to gather those stickers for the planner. But before that, let's compare first the last year's Starbucks Planner versus the 2016 planner as part of our #ThrowbackThursday segment. Here they are:

The 2015 Starbucks Planner:

The 2016 Starbucks Planner:

Honestly speaking, last year's designs were far better than this year's. Agree?

The current designs were so simple. They were categorized into colors and sizes - 4 colors (white, green, black, and red) and 2 sizes ( 2 smalls and 2 bigs). The two smalls were thicker since pages were according to days while the 2 bigs were according to weeks.

But what made this year's designs different from the previous is that Starbucks collaborates with the Italian notebook brand, the Moleskine.

What more can you say about the last year and this year's designs?

One thing is sure... yours truly is up again to collect stickers to grab my new Starbucks 2016 Planner. And I will definitely keep you posted! (RCB)

Taking A New Leadership Training

Every other year in my professional career as a Software QA Engineer, I always ensure that I took certifications in line with my profession. In 2012, I have passed the International Software Testing Qualification Board (ISTQB) while last 2014, I got my Professional Scrum Master (PSM) certification.

Since I already had those two major certifications significant in my chosen profession, this year my plan is to take new trainings for the meantime while thinking for a new certification / title to get. And one of these trainings is a leadership training dubbed as "Getting Ready to Lead."

Check out our graduation photos below after we successfully completed the said 3-day leadership training:

This was not my first time to attend a leadership training like this since in my previous company, I already had a similar training.

I will not post the whole details of the training but in a nutshell, this training prepared us to be more competitive leaders in the upcoming projects to handle. 

Will share more certifications and training posts in the coming days. Congratulations everyone! (RCB

#ThrowbackThursday: "My Husband's Lover" Days with Tom Rodriguez

Exactly two years ago, Tom Rodriguez got his breakthrough role in Primetime TV series as Vincent Soriano in GMA's teleserye, "My Husband's Lover."

During our set visit in Vincent's car shop, Tom revealed how challenging the said character and why he accepted the said role of a bisexual male.

Today, Tom returned in Telebabad playing another iconic role - Sergio Santibanez in the Kapuso's 2015 remake of "Marimar" pairing him to Megan Young.

My last meetup with Tom was just this July 2015 during the Kapuso 65TH Year Anniversary Celebration in MOA Arena. Here is our photo together during the said event:

Keep up the good work Tom! See you again soon! More new exciting characters to come! (RCB)

A Work of Art in the BGC Wall

Art is truly everywhere. Most of us didn't appreciate it even though we see it everyday. But once we pay attention to it, we will learn its true beauty. 

Let me share with you this work of art in the wall of Bonifacio Global City (BGC) amidst the busy night market of the new Mercato:

BGC is currently the center of different companies. Office buildings and condo units were located on it. Glad that even in this busy place, art still exists! (RCB)

Korean Dinner at Dong Won

It was another food-filled Friday night with yours truly and with my friends at work. The four of us this time enjoyed a Korean dinner at the Korean resto named Dong Won.

Great to be back in this Korea restaurant after couples of months. The last time we've been here was last April 2015. 

Since 2013, this place seems to be a silent witness in the different events in my life. But, I don't wanna talk about those things anymore. Past is past! Let's foucus now on the present and prepare for the future. Here is my company of good people:

Okey, let the pictures now speak for themselves. 

Let me share with you first those unlimited appetizers that made us crave for more:

We enjoyed two different sets of barbeque - the crispy pork and the meaty beef:

And yes, even two sets of soups were also served to us - the spicy beef with bola-bola and the seafood with tofu:

This green letucce blended with fresh garlics is one of my favorites:

After the heavy dinner, we had a sweet cold dessert - the Korean ice cream! I admit, I really love these:

These were the food we ordered that Friday night. We were really, really full not only with good foods but with great kwentuhan and kulitan as well!

That was a night! Another memorable moment in this Korean restaurant! 

We'll be back again in this place soon trying other dishes! Two thumbs up Dong Won! (RCB)
