Former Orange and Lemons lead vocalist Mcoy Fundales returns with a new single! Yes, this talented singer-writer returns to the music scene with his new song "Bakit Kita Hahabulin?."

Friday afternoon, June 21, 2019, the said new single's music video was officially released in different platforms such as in YouTube. And on the same day, Mcoy had an exclusive blogcon for his new song as well as to answer details about his career path, future projects, and whereabouts.

To give you a quick background about Mcoy, yeah he is the former lead vocalist of Orange and Lemon, the band who popularized the Pinoy Big Brother's theme song "Pinoy Ako." After his band was disband, he created his new group called Kenyo, a short for 'Bulakenyo' since the members were all from Bulacan. Then after five years, the said band was also disband therefore he went solo performing his own music. When Michael V. called for new creative writers for his comedy show "Pepito Manoloto," he tried his luck applying his talent in script writing. Until he became the show's head writer!

Now, Mcoy is coming back to his other love, music and singing via his new single "Bakit Kita Hahabulin?" under AltG Records.

Well without further talks, let's hear Mcoy singing this song live during our blogcon. Here is our live video coverage with a little bit of Q&A after the song:

Our question and answer portion was cut when the official music video of his new single was aired. Afterwards, we returned for another exciting set of Q&A. And here we go:

But wait,  if you're curious about the said music video, well, let's watch it again here!

Here’s what you need to know before you dive right back into Siren Season 2!

After a brief mid-season break, Siren is back to enthral viewers with its dark retelling of everything that can possibly occur when the world of humans and mermaids get entwined. If the details are a blur, here are a few refreshers to get you up to speed now that it’s back with fresh episodes airing every Sunday, 7:55pm only on Blue Ant Entertainment.

**Note: SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t watched Siren yet!**

1.    Bristol Cove founder, Charles H Pownall, fell in love with a mermaid, with disastrous results.

Legends has it that the mermaid Charles Pownall fell in love with returned to the sea and left him heartbroken. However, the real story reveals that they had a child whom he tried to kill and subsequently hunted down and killed all the mermaids he could find, driving survivors deep into the sea, never to return.

2.    In Season 1, newcomer Ryn is revealed to be a mermaid, seeking her captured sister Donna.

Stumbling around town, Ryn befriends marine biologist Ben who is a descendent of Pownall. Together with his girlfriend Maddie, they try to keep Ryn’s true nature a secret.

3.    Meanwhile, Donna is experimented on, leaving her bitter and vengeful against humans.

Ensnared by the fishing nets of the North Star, Donna is taken by the military who has been secretly tracking the mermaids.

4.    Ryn is forced to take a stand against her own kin, but Donna wants to fight humans and bring Ryn home.

Ryn believes her people need the humans to survive, while Donna brands her a traitor for siding with the humans. This is a common theme throughout the series, with Ryn forming a bridge between her world and the humans. The repercussions are manifold – unknown to Donna, her people view Ryn’s friendship with humans as a danger to their kind and don’t want to bring her home at all. This leads to a huge confrontation, with Ryn commanding her kin to return to the sea without harming any more humans.  In the conflict, Xander, whose father was killed by a merman, accidentally shoots Donna in grief.

5.    The town’s dark history is revealed by local historian Helen, along with the secret of her lineage.

Apparently, Pownall’s human-mermaid hybrid child survived and her descendants have lived in Bristol Cove ever since; Unbeknownst to many, Helen could be the last surviving descendant.

6.    Siren Season 2 brings a new mystery which drove mermaids and mermen out of the water.

Season 1 ends with Ryn returning to the sea, wearing a tracker so Ben and Maddie will be able to find her. When the tracker signal is found on land and several merfolk show up unexpectedly, Ben, Maddie and Helen are forced to protect the identity of not one, but a whole pack of merfolk from the townspeople. The longer these creatures stay out of the sea, the more they weaken.

7.    Alliances are formed but where will the lines be drawn?

Ben’s friend Xander, whose father was killed by one of the mermaids, discovers that the one responsible for the death of his father is hiding with Ryn and the others. Another mermaid-in-hiding, Katrina, resents and challenges Ryn’s leadership in a furious underwater battle, mermaid-to-mermaid.

8.    New and old threats surface

It’s revealed that an oil company, Klesco Oil, is using a sonic cannon, which is what’s preventing the merfolk from returning to the sea. In addition, their construction of a new oil drill threatens the merfolk further so a daring plan is hatched to destroy their oil drill and drive them away. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and the North Star ended up in flames, leading to an investigation that dredges up things best left buried.

Wondering what happens next? Where will Ryn and the rest of the pack end up? What happens after the accident involving the North Star? Tune in to the return of Siren season 2 and find out! Block your Sunday nights for the concluding episodes of Siren S2, airing express from the US, every Sunday at 7:55pm only on Blue Ant Entertainment available on SKYcable channel 53 (SD) and 196 (HD), SKYdirect channel 35, CableLink channel 37, and Cignal channel 120. 06/22/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Two petrolheads, one limestone massif and a race against the clock for bragging rights - plus a spot in the Guinness World Records™.

Record Rides comes to South East Asia and Hong Kong on National Geographic in a two-part series airing on June 23 and June 30 2019, at 8.00 PM (Philippines time).  The automotive reality entertainment series pits adrenaline junkie and radio DJ, KC Montero, against race car driver Natasha Chang, also known as Chiney Dolly. 

The gambit is simple: KC and Natasha aim to write their names into the record books as the fastest ascent of Doi Chang mountain by car. The catch: there will be no rocket ships or supercars: KC and Natasha will need to prove their ingenuity in sourcing and souping up their own speedsters for the showdown on an impossible timeline. Whether or not they end up with their name in the record books, the pair will be breaking new ground - there is no such existing record, and indeed, no similar effort made in an everyday car.

Chiang Mai is the historical capital of the old Lanna Kingdom: home to misty mountains, colourful hill tribes and picture-postcard ancient Thai temples framed by blue skies and lush greenery.

Doi Chang mountain in this Thai province is the location of the showdown. It will bear witness to feats of ingenuity, of power, control, and of speed, as KC and Natasha hurtle up the slopes in a battle to carve their names in the record books as the fastest ascent of Doi Chang mountain by car.

KC is a car nut with a need for speed and Natasha is no slouch in the driver’s seat either, bringing her racing experience to the table, but neither will attempt the record ride alone. They will get local help on their quest for the Guinness World Records™ attempt from Phat aka ‘Golf’, an expert of the Chiang Mai racing scene, and his motorhead crew at Phat Garage - plus a boost from Caltex with Techron® fuel as they race up the mountain and into the record books.

“National Geographic has always believed in adventure, exploration and pushing boundaries. With Record Rides, we are pleased to be a part of this attempt at a new world record. Coupled with the natural beauty of Chiang Mai, Record Rides is definitely a spectacle that is exciting and entertaining, all at once,” says Con Apostolopoulos, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific & Middle East, National Geographic Partners.

“As a leading visual storyteller, National Geographic’s programming pillars of exploration, education and science resonate well with the Caltex brand. Hence, we are proud to partner with the channel to create Record Rides for our viewers and motorists in Asia,” says Brian Fisher, Caltex Brand Manager. “This show will demonstrate how Caltex with Techron® fuels can power an engine towards achieving an extraordinary journey.”

Record Rides premieres in South East Asia and Hong Kong on National Geographic (Skycable Ch. 41 / Cignal Ch. 141 / Cable Link Ch. 62 / GSAT Ch. 55) on June 23, 2019 at 8.00 PM (Philippines time), with its concluding episode airing on June 30, 2019 at 8.00 PM (Philippines time).

Now on its 33rd year, the longest-running comedy variety show in the Philippines is set for its funniest, most endearing, and most memorable installment yet! Taking place on June, 21, 22, and 23 of 2019, Live AIDS: G na G sa 33 is sure to give every audience member their time’s worth within the first couple of acts alone!

Live AIDS (Ang Istoryang Dinebelop ng SAMASKOM ) or Acts, Improvisations, Dances and Songs, is an annual musical-comedy series mounted by UP SAMASKOM. What started as a mere applicants’ batch project back in 1983 has grown into one of the most awaited events in the entire Diliman community. With each successive installment, the team behind Live AIDS continues to step up its game, and raise the bar both in terms of audience size, and on how sharp and relatable, yet satirical and enjoyable Philippine comedy can be.

However, more than just comedy, Live AIDS is an analysis, exposure, and creative satirization of the modern socio-political sphere we live in as well as the pop culture that has become so ingrained in our lives. Essentially, it parodies the experiences of modern-day Filipinos in our diverse society. Run by a company comprised of both young, talented students and experienced professionals, Live AIDS boldly tackles the present, trending, and viral. It portrays on stage social realities mixed with comedy, spectacle, and entertainment that everyone is certain to enjoy!

As a result of its unique and unbridled brand of showmanship, Live AIDS has continually garnered fanatics and avid viewers who have regularly flocked to the show over the course of three decades of production. These include big names such as Vice Ganda, Bianca Gonzales, Ricky Lee, Lani Misalucha, Icy Mendoza, John Lapus, Rajo Laurel, BJ Pascual, and Tim Yap.

Here is KaladKaren's intro speech during the presscon:

And here is the live Q & A with the bloggers present during the event:

And yes, we got a taste of a live performance by three of the gorgeous members. Watch them dancing below:

Live AIDS remains a popular avenue for individuals from all across the university to hone their talents, celebrate their diversity, and showcase their creativity through the gift of self-expression. Its staying power can be attributed to the teamwork of the residents and alumni of UP SAMASKOM. The bonds that are built within the “samahan” and the trust that is fostered among the members do not only keep the show alive, but allow it to kickstart the careers of comedy stars like Giselle Sanchez, Ate Glow, Michelle O’ Bombshell, Tuesday Vargas and KaladKaren Davila to name a few.

The 33rd edition of Live AIDS will be quarterbacked by Director Deo Divinagracia. A bona fide veteran of the show both in terms of performance and production. He looks to incorporate both classic and modern methods of direction, stage production, and writing in order to create an even bigger explosion of social commentary and parody combined.

Mounting this show yearly comes at the cost of blood, sweat, and tears from the members. Director Divinagracia stated that, “The biggest challenge in directing and staging a LIVE AIDS production is staying relevant and meaningful while delivering the laughs that our loyal viewers are always expecting. Logistically, gathering students and alumni who have different priorities, interests, sensibilities, and schedules is also a huge challenge for a director.”

Meanwhile, let's check some of the event photos during last year's Live at 32 actual play:

This 2019 installment of Live AIDS is filled top to bottom with satire based on trending topics and viral content kept very relatable all throughout. It is both a sharp commentary, and just an all- around good time for anyone who watches. LIVE AIDS: G na G sa 33 is sure to leave a mark on both the show’s devoted fans and on first-time viewers all the same.

Promising to be nothing less than the most fun and memorable nights of your life, LIVE AIDS: G na G sa 33 is an event not to be missed!

Put the international singers Arianna Grande and Christina Aguilera into one person. And the product is no other than our very own, Sophia Bianca!

Fresh, young, and talented... Sophia just turned 18 today. But instead of celebrating her debut into a huge party, she and her family decided to have an album launch instead!

Yes, this cute girl with a resemblance of Kathryn Bernardo and Vivoree Esclito has a new single called  "In Loves Eyes." And she sang a sample of it during our exclusive blogcon with her!

Want to know more about her? Well, watch our live video coverage during our blogcon:

The event also served a singing stage for Sophia. She sang different songs ala Alicia Keys. Here is a video of her sample song:

Sophia dreams to have a duet with Alicia Keys in the future! And if her life is to have a TV version, she loves Kathryn Bernardo to play her character!

Meanwhile aside from singing, Sophia also loves to paint! She is also a sports enthusiast playing volleyball on her free time!

More of the photos during the event:

On her official Facebook Fanpage, she wrote the following notes:

Watch out! for my first single "In Loves Eyes" composed by Grammy awardee, Gerard McMann.

In writing, singing & creating the masterpiece "Cry Little Sister" as the theme song to the now classic film "THE LOST BOYS," Gerard McMann hit a deep & provocative nerve in his artistic career of creativity in doing so. 

Only thing was, when the film released in 1987, he was fed up with the music scene's "business" and stopped touring. He then changed his name to G TOM MAC as a result of no one ever pronouncing his real name correctly. G TOM MAC went on to write songs for legendary singers such as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Roger Daltrey of The Who. 

An array of contemporary Hip Hop artists, such as Ice Cube and Digable Planets, as well as KISS, Carly Simon and Eminem started to cover G Tom Mac's songs. 

G Tom Mac earned a Grammy on Eminem's "RECOVERY" album in which Eminem sampled him in the song "You're Never Over." Having had songs in over 50 films; more than 100 TV shows that still continue to license G Tom Mac's music, it all adds up to in his words "staying fresh and being true to my fans in creating believable music that they feel from me. That's my thrill!" #SophiaBiancaMusic

Good luck Sophia! Looking forward for more new songs and collaborations in the future! Happy 18TH Birthday as well! 06/15/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Can two mid-aged people find love in the digital age? Is dating app a better way to find true love?

Well, we are currently living in a digital world. And yes, everything seems easy by just a press in your smartphone. All we need were already there in a mobile app! And since millennial people are dependent in mobile app or in Social Media, Cignal Entertainment and DSL Productions bring this comedy film with a touch of romance wherein social media is in focus. And yeah, you don't need to be a millennial to be related in this film since the two lead casts of the movie are already on their mid-age. Hence called as "Feelennial," short for "Feeling Millennial."

The movie brings fresh new tandem - the love team of Ms. Ai-Ai Delas Alas and Bayani Agbayani! And what do they have in common?! Well, both of them were already box-office king and queen in the field of comedy films!

To add more flavors on their loveteam, two young stars namely Arvic Tan and Raffy Roque joined their hilarious tandem playing as their son and niece respectively.

We're lucky enough to be the first one to witness this great cool movie. On June 14, 2019, we've joined the main casts Ai-Ai Delas, Arvic Tan, and Pop Fernandez in the film's advance screening held at the Red Carpet, Shangri-la Plaza in Mandaluyong.  

We laughed and fell in-love with the characters of Ai-Ai, Bayani, Arvic, and Raffy. There is no dull moment in the whole run of the film. We felt the good vibes all over. The comedy is very natural, as they say, 'no filter!' Ai-Ai and Bayani once more proved that they are the royalties of comedy! "Effortless ang pagpapatawa!" 

To give you a glimpse of what the movie is all about, Ai-Ai plays the character of Madame Bato-Bato, a rich single mom who has everything she needs except the attention of her only son Nico played by the heartthrob actor-model Arvic Tan. She tries to do the activities that her millennial son is into to gain the latter's attention. In one of her feelennial activities - online dating using the app created by her son and his girlfriend, she meets Chito played by Bayani who is a rich bachelor who just recently won huge sum via a 6/69 lotto jackpot.

The first encounters of Madame and Chito doesn't turn out well, and what ensues is a flurry of mishaps and misadventures, pitting Delas Alas and Agbayani into funny yet thought-provoking situations on how romance and family dynamic has changed in today's society.

What more do I love in this movie - well, I can relate to millennial activities which I always do like selfie, groupie, ootd, being a social media savy, flirting with dating app, and conscious on the number of IG followers or YouTube subscribers.

Giving you more teaser about this movie, you will love the names of Ai-Ai friends! All of their names were derived from the name of computer fonts - Tahoma, Cambria, and Arial!

Other cast members of the film include Nar Cabico, Ina Feleo, Nicole Donesa, Jelai Andres, Sofia Delas Alas, Skelly Skelly, Micah Munoz with the special participation of Pops Fernandez, Paolo Ballesteros, and Martin Nievera.

Under the direction of GMA-7's resident director Rechie del Carmen, "Feelennial" is set to hit the theaters this coming June 19! Congrats in advance for the success of this film! This is definitely another sure hit movie! 06/14/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Let's get to know Anthony Rosaldo and Mikee Quintos one-by-one!

Anthony Rosaldo's Hunger For Showbiz

Anthony is one of the successful products of the GMA reality singing competition "The Clash." After the said competition where he is one of the finalists, Anthony released his first single "Larawan" which eventually turned into an instant hit topping the music chart.

During our interview, Anthony revealed his 'hunger' for showbiz - acting, dancing, and exploration aside from singing. He got his first acting stint via the drama anthology "Magpakailanman." Soon, he's looking forward for more opportunities in the showbiz world.

But, how did he came up for a concert like this? Why is Mikee Quintos eventually turned into his concert partner? How did their friendship started? Well, let's watch this:

Furthermore, Anthony revealed that he's going to sing the theme song of the upcoming huge GMA Koreanovela. As you watched from the video, the said theme song is a revival of a classic OPM hit.

Now let's talk about Mikee.

Mikee Quintos' Shift From Acting to Singing

Kapuso's young actress Mikee Quintos rose to fame after playing the character of Lira in the 2016 remake of the fantaserye "Encantadia." After that, she played a lead role in the recently concluded hit drama series "Onanay" portraying a good daughter. From then on, she got many TV appearances on the different GMA shows.

But prior to acting, Mikee revealed that her first love is singing. When she is not yet discovered as an actress, Mikee is already a singer singing different covers in her YouTube channel. So now that she has no TV series project yet on Kapuso, she'll be back for the meantime to her first love.

On our one-on-one interview with Mikee, the actress revealed how they become close with Anthony. According to her, Anthony is the most shy contestant of "The Clash." But Anthony has the 'sense of humor' which bind them together.

Here is our live video interview with Mikee:

And why do you think their concert is dubbed as "Revelations"? Well, it's simply because there are lots of revelations about them that we will witness during the concert. One of these is the talent in dancing. Yes, there are dance numbers that we'll amaze us.

Meanwhile aside from Anthony and Mikee, some of the guest stars who will grace the concert are Solenn Heusaff, Aicelle Santos, the Zamora Brothers, and Jo Berry to name few.

The said celebrities played important roles in a star studded night of celebration full of good food, unlimited wines, and theatrical performance held at the Seda Vertis North, Quezon City, June 7, 2019.  The celebration started when Gerald Santos and his theater group narrated the history of GSM via musical play.

But before digging into full details in the event that took place, let's have a quick memory lane on how this country's leading gin brand Ginebra came into existence.   

When you say gin in the Philippines, only one brand comes to mind: Ginebra San Miguel.  Wherever you are, whatever your status, whether celebrating milestones or unwinding at the end of the day, it has become part of the Filipino’s way of life.

Perhaps this is because Ginebra San Miguel represents more than a drink. It is a testament to the passion, perseverance and the unwavering spirit of the people it has served for almost two centuries.

How Ginebra San Miguel Started?

The story of Ginebra San Miguel is the story of a drinking culture that began on March 10, 1834. From its humble beginnings in a small distillery in Quiapo, Manila, Ginebra San Miguel, the first-ever gin in the Philippines, was initially produced to cater to the affluent and colonial elite who stayed on in Manila and later shared with other wealthy Filipinos. Back then, Ginebra San Miguel was bottled in 20-liter glass jars wrapped in rattan weave called the dama juana.

Watch our live video narrating the Ginebra history via musical play below:

The brand, already an award winner as early as the late 19th century, became the most sought-after liquor drink by Filipinos. As Ginebra San Miguel grew in demand, it also became more affordable to the working class Filipino when it was bottled in 1 liter glass containers called the frasco.

Along with modernization and improvements in production technology, Ginebra San Miguel introduced in the 1950s the image of St. Michael the Archangel vanquishing the devil, painted by Fernando Amorsolo (who would become the first National Artist), in its Bilog and Kwatro Kantos bottles.

Since its creation, Ginebra San Miguel has been a witness to the changes that shaped and defined the Philippines. It has withstood the test of time, the challenges of war, the transitions of governments, and even technological developments. Ginebra San Miguel evolved from being a drink of the elite to winning the hearts and taste buds of the masses. Today, Ginebra San Miguel is considered as one of the country’s most respected and iconic brands and has become part of Philippine history, culture and tradition.
