Transform yourself with Schick



When I was a kid, I dreamed to be a superhero. Me and my cousins used to portray ourselves as heroes with superpowers that can save the world. We even dressed up like them wearing the curtains or bedding when our parents were not around! And yes, we avidly watched the different superhero cartoons and TV series like Batman, Spider Man, Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Conan, Power Rangers, Bioman, Shaider, and Superman to imitate their moves. Of all those fictional characters, my favorite is no other than, Superman!        

I wish that someday, I will be like Superman. I was amazed how he got his superpower to defeat the enemies and save the needy. I admired his strong body which functions like a steel irresistible of any harm. I grew up not only acting like Superman every playtime with my cousins and playmates but also collecting Superman memorabilia like comics, coloring books, toys, and text cards. I even cried out when my mom didn't bought me new Superman items!

Now that I'm already a young man in my mid 20s, my dream to be like Superman or any other superhero is seems to be unattainable. But as they always say, if you believe in your dream, you can achieve it. Nothing is impossible! Therefore, I'm still foreseeing myself to be like 'man of steel' even for a week!     
    
And for one week that I have the power like the 'man of steel,' I will use it based on my one week calendar schedule below: 


Day 1 (Sunday) - Before I help others or my community, I will render first my power to my own family. I will perform all the heavy tasks in our home just like a big machine therefore my mom could rest for a day free of all the household tasks!  

Day 2 (Monday) - For the meantime, I will take a 5-day leave in my office to use my given superpower. But for this day, since I already had my superpower, I will use it to finish all my office tasks and obligations in advance for one month! Therefore, I can contribute a huge advance productivity in my company increasing profits and clients' trust.

Day 3 (Tuesday) - Now its my community duty! Since I'm living in Valenzuela known as a place prolong to floods, what I will do is to cleanse the city - remove all the garbage, clean the drainage, and uplift the roads leaving no area for floods or other disasters.

Day 4 (Wednesday) - After my community, let's move to a larger one, the NCR. Since our region is the center of crimes, it's now my turn to eliminate the criminals! I will help the policemen defeat the criminals by hunting them and bringing them to jail leaving Metro Manila a state free from crimes and safe to live and work with.

Day 5 (Thursday) - If I was able to defeat the criminals on Day 4, here in Day 5, I will enter the government offices! Yes, it's time to eliminate and penalize the corrupt officials and remove them from their positions. In this case, corruptions were out of service and the money from our tax will be 100% to be used for the country and fellow Filipinos! I will also get their corrupted money and give it to the needy.

Day 6 (Friday) - Now for my second to the last day as a 'Man of Steel' I will help the needy and the beggars. Since I already got the money corrupted by the unworthy government officials, what will I do next is to distribute those money to the beggars and people on the road. I'll ensure that no more beggars or needy were begging for foods or coins by giving them not only money but also a stable job even a small business like sari-sari store.

Day 7 (Saturday) - Time to give thanks! Since I can fly high above the sky with superpowers, I will find a chance to talk with the Lord to thank Him for the power He had give me even for a week. And of course, to offer prayers for the sake of others! I'll ask Him to oversee the people and community when my superpowers were gone the next day.                               

That's my one week schedule that I will do given a chance to have a superpower like the 'Man of Steel' for a week.

Well if you want to be like Superman, know him first better - his abilities, his strengths, his power by joining the Schick’s Superman promo contest. Check this out:

Another Winning Moment with Angel Locsin!

Last Sunday night, me and the country's most-awarded young actress Ms. Angel Locsin met again! And that was during the awards night of the 44TH Box-Office Entertainment Awards by Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Inc.

Angel received her award as Film Actress of the Year for their blockbester movie "One More Try."

Angel came wearing a green sexy backless gown. As usual, she shined the brightest during the night!

Meeting the "Moonlight Over Paris" Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos!

Who can't forget his greatest love song "Moonlight Over Paris" which revitalized the return of the acoustic love songs in the music scene?! Well, I'm only a college student that time when the said song dominated the different radio stations giving rise to original prince of acoustic music, Paolo Santos!

Again, I was so privileged to meet and talk with this Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos one Friday night in Tambayan Sa Kanto. On the said night, Paolo is featured and performed in the resto-bar's "Acoustic Night."      

Well before  anything else, check out our cool photos together:




It seems that we've traveled back in the early part of 2000's as Paolo played his music. He made me reminisce my college love stories as he sang his undying hit "Moonlight Over Paris" and his very own rendition of the previous hit song "Because of You."    

Aside from the said songs, Paolo even serenaded us with his versions of the love songs like "Overjoyed," "Close," "Perfect Day," and "I'll Be Over You."

Paolo is not only a good singer, he is also a perfect guitarist! He played his own instrument which is his guitar while singing. Check him out performing below:



While enjoying the music of Paolo, me and my good friend Carlo even enjoyed the foods served to us by Tambayan Sa Kanto. I ordered my favorite kare-kare (this time kare-kareng bagnet) and tinapa rice while my friend enjoyed pancit guisado. And for drinks, I was satisfied by the banana-papaya shake while Carlo by iced margarita!    

Those were just some of the great foods served by Tambayan Sa Kanto. The restaurant was known as an All-Filipino Cuisine Restaurant Cafe as it serves all types of Pinoy regional foods!

And yes, aside from the Pinoy foods, Tambayan also shows "Acoustic Nights" every Friday and Saturday nights featuring the different famous and talented Filipino artists! And one of these is Paolo Santos!

Want to enjoy great music while enjoying Filipino dishes at the same time?! Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

So let's go, tara, tambay na! (RCB)

A Red Shot with Anne Curtis!

Finally,  I got pictures together with the country's "nag-iisang dyosa" and Anne-bisyosa Ms. Anne Curtis.

Me and  Anne already met for three times now - first during the story conference of their teleserye "Kailngan Ko'y Ikaw" in ABS-CBN, second during our Zac Efron event in SM MOA Arena, and third just recently in the Guillermo Mendoza 44TH Box Office Entertainment Awards in the AFP Theater, Quezon City.

Check out our photos together:



Wearing an all-red gown and lipstick, Anne received her award of being the 2012-2013 Female Concert Performer of the Year  for taking Araneta Coliseum by storm. And take note, Anne showcased her singing talent by singing the Whitnet Houston's hit "I Will Always Love You" getting louder screams from the audience during the prestige awards night!

Food Bits: Get to Know 'Kare-Kareng Bagnet!'

Kare-Kare is one of my favorite ulam. I love the kare-kare made with pata or twualya (beef's internal part). Yes, this very own Pinoy favorite comes in different types or in different flavors. At first, I thought that kare-kare comes only in two (that I mentioned above). But actually, there's more!        
On Friday night, I met Kare-Kareng Bagnet in Tambayan Sa Kanto. And it tastes awesome! 

Well before I eat this yummy dish, I took first photos of it so that I can share it with you. So, feed your appetite and crave below: 



Bagnet is a crunchy pork's liempo. It is usually fried ala-lechon kawali or serves as a topping of lugaw. But this time, I found and tasted a new recipe for bagnet. That is via my favorite kare-kare.  

Kare-Kareng Bagnet was served with a saucy peanut sauce. Veggies like sitaw, talong (eggplant), and puso ng saging were mixed into it.

Served hot and freshly cooked, I couldn't helped myself to eat it! I even took home some to share it with my mother and brother. Just like me, they started to love this new breed of kare-kare

I truly salute Tambayan Sa Kanto for serving us a very Filipino cuisines like this! They are truly lifting up the Filipinos now in terms of serving our signature dishes, the regional favorite Pinoy foods.

Want to taste more?! Well, visit and dine in Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Aside from Pinoy recipes, you can also enjoy great music every Friday and Saturday nights via Acoustic Nights featuring different artists.   

Two thumbs up Tambayan Sa Kanto, the place I love to hangout! (RCB) 

Food Bits: Tasting Tambayan's Very Own 'Tinapa Rice!'

Last Friday night, me and my good friend once more visited our favorite tambayan resto-bar in The Podium, the Tambayan Sa Kanto. We jammed with the celebrity guest Paolo Santos who was that night's "Acoustic Night" featured celebrity.     

What caught my interest during the night was the food I ordered. I got amazed when I learned that Tambayan offers a type of rice called "Tinapa Rice!" And this is unique which we can only order in Tambayan. 

We were very much familiar with fried rice, java rice, japanese rice, pandan rice, or any types of rice offered by different restaurants. Now this time, get ready to know Tinapa Rice

Check out the up, close photos of Tinapa Rice and tell me why it is called as such:   






Tinapa Rice is a rice topped with Tinapa (smoked fish) bits. Completing the cast of this very good yummy dish are itlog na maalat (salty egg), tomato slices, onion rings, and dahon ng sibuyas. It tastes a little salty which compromised the tasteless taste of the ordinary rice.     

As you can see, Tinapa Rice is very Filipino! If there is a Japanese Rice which carries the banner of Japan, then here at Tambayan, we have our very own Filipino Rice named Tinapa Rice which is Pinoy foods another flagship!

Tinapa Rice is only one of the great Filipino recipes that you can taste here and only here at Tambayan Sa Kanto. Yes, this resto-bar is a restaurant very much popular of serving different Filipino cuisines. Name your favorite Pinoy foods or regional foods, they have it cooked with love and hospitality - the two traits Filipinos are known! :) 

Want to taste more Pinoy favorites? Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the Ground Floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Eat and enjoy the music! (RCB)

Rocky Talks with South Border's "Aspog" Vince Alaras!



When I was in college, I really love the songs like "Rainbow," "Love of My Life," and "Ikaw Nga" from the popular RnB boyband South Borders. Those songs were somewhat part of my college love life. And I really felt inspired listening to them.    

I'm so glad that I finally met in person one Friday night the band's lead vocalist Vince Alaras in Tambayan Sa Kanto's "Acoustic Night." That was his very first gig in the resto-bar which offers an all Filipino cuisine!        

I talked with Vince via a cool video. In our conversation, he shared some interesting things about himself. According to him, he was called by his barkada as "aspog" which means "Astig na Pogi!" And from that term, they derived the name of their band.

Vince also expressed his gratitude and experience performing in Tambayan. Here is our cool video:  



This Saturday night, May 18, 2013, Vince will have his second gig in Tambayan Sa Kanto. Expect to hear once again his team revitalizing their hit love songs! And of course, watch him performing his very own rendition of the classic love songs!

Tambayan Sa Kanto's Acoustic Nights happen every Friday and Saturday from 9pm to 2am. The resto-bar is located at the GF of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

See you again Vince this Friday! (RCB)

One Soulful Night with Markki Stroem!



Me and the heartthrob crooner Markki Stroem already met many times now in different events. But two weeks ago, we had a special night with him!

Markki is featured in the 7TH High's "Soul Nite." In the said event, Markki performed his music which includes the songs he composed, his popular love songs, his cover versions, and his renditions of the current hits.    

Well, Markki is the only male acoustic artist who can truly give a new life to the songs originally performed by female singers. Some of these are Adele's "Rumor Has It," Rihanna's "Diamonds," and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."   

Just like we always do, we pose photos together:



But that night was different... We posed for the first time a wacky shot! And here how Rocky and Markki turned wacky:

Rocky and Wacky Turn Wacky!

I even brought my friends to Markki. And yes, they truly enjoyed the performance and humor of Markki in the stage! Markki didn't only sing, he even moved around and serenaded the audience! My two female friends were really "kotang-kota" with him!    

And of course, we posed a shot with the hot guy!
