Although we can all agree that jamming out to music in the car or enjoying a stand up comic through headphones can be excellent: nothing competes with live entertainment.  We react stronger to it.  From how music seems to hit harder, with drums that we can feel in our chest- to getting to laugh and cheer with other people in the audience that you don't know: it's different from anything else.  If you're new to an area or new to live entertainment, it may seem hard to find a show.

Instead of hoping a band’s concert poster will blow into your yard, here are the top places to enjoy live entertainment!

Local Bars

This option requires a little research first to ensure you're not just going into a building packed with drunk people.  Instead, check out the local bars to see if they mention their online presence that they're hosting any performers.  Between Thursday and Saturday night, many bars will host a couple of bands to entertain patrons.  IF you don't want to sit in a crowded room full of drunk people, there are other options: this choice is just the easiest to attend!

Comedy Clubs 

Comedy clubs are the lifeblood of some cities’ nightlives.  Pay a door cover fee, or reach a drink requirement, and enjoy the comedic stylings of those in your area.  Although you can't guarantee that you'll find a great comedian, most of these clubs host several entertainers in a night- so you're bound to find at least one that you like!  Don't be afraid to get to know the other patrons, and settle in for a night of laughs!

Check Websites Like Craigslist and Twitter 

Although Craigslist is more for buying and selling things people don’t feel like listing on eBay, it also has a thriving place in the party and entertainment sphere.  You can use Craigslist and Twitter to look for bands, comedians, and other performers advertising upcoming gigs- and possibly buy tickets to the event.  You should be careful, though, and google a band or do some research before attending any event.  If not, you might be the only guest who shows up, and that could be awkward.

Music On The Lawn 

The moment summer heat sets in, every city with a population larger than thirty thousand starts hosting live music in its public parks.  Go to your city, or county, events site and look for upcoming public concerts.  These performances are a fantastic way to learn more about local artists and possibly find a new favorite band!

Host Your Event 

If none of these fun locations are places that you’d want to go: there’s always the idea that you could host an event on your own!  Figure out a venue, look into booking entertainment that matches what you want, and put it out there that this is happening!  It’s a good idea to let people know at least a month ahead so that they can make plans, but don’t spam and bother everyone for that whole month: let the show speak for itself. 03/31/2021 (TV Series Craze)

Orabella Philippines, the beauty brand known for its affordable and quality skincare line, recently welcomed teen actress Arabella del Rosario as its new brand ambassador.

“As an up and coming brand, we wanted an endorser who is passionate and promising. We see that in Arabella, and we warmly welcome her into the Orabella family,’ said Anne Acuña, Marketing Manager of Orabella Direct Selling Inc.

The young actress, who is also into singing and figure skating, is a member of Star Magic. Arabella has appeared in the ABS-CBN series, Wild Little Love.

She was introduced as Orabella’s latest endorser during a virtual press conference attended by members of the media and the blogging community.

While she appeared in some commercials in the past, according to Del Rosario, this is the first time she will be launched as brand ambassador of a reputable skin care brand such as Orabella. 

“Being a new face in show business has its advantage, too. There are trustworthy brands like Orabella that believe beautiful skin is achievable with a consistent skin care routine. Ever since a kid, I know that taking care of my skin should be a priority. It is not vanity but it’s self care, because our skin is the largest organ of the body,” said Del Rosario, who is also a college freshman taking up Veterinary Medicine in De La Salle Araneta University.

Meanwhile, here is my live coverage during the zoom virtual media conference:

During the same event, Orabella also unveiled its Defense Factor System that includes a soap, toning gel, spot solution, specialist cream, and sun care lotion.

“Our Defense Factor System is a complete solution that is formulated to bring out the beauty in you. Our company has been in the manufacturing of skin care products for a long time, however, Orabella is our homegrown brand,” Acuña said, adding that the brand celebrates women, who make up most of their distribution network. 

All the products are made with quality and natural ingredients, and are intended to be “defense factors” against skin problems like blemishes (acne, blackheads, and whiteheads); sun damage (melasma, sun spots, and uneven color); and visible signs of aging (wrinkles, dryness, and roughness).

To learn more about the Orabella Defense Factor System and its other offerings, follow Orabella Direct Selling Inc. on its official Facebook account.

Orabella skin care products are sold through independent distributors and will soon be available on Lazada and Shopee. 03/30/2021 (TV Series Craze)

 The aspiring singer-songwriter started her career by posting snippets of her music on the platform!

18-year old Angela Rojas is one of the most promising young talents seen on TikTok today. Known online as Angela Ken, this TikTok success story started out the same way many musicians on the platform do, posting covers and snippets of her original compositions. 

From a young age, Angela was already musically inclined. She even wrote her first composition, a worship song, at the age of 12. But when she first started using TikTok, Angela didn't think that she would actually start sharing her talents with others on the platform. "Last year, I started making song covers and dances on TikTok just for fun. Until I uploaded one of my originals on TikTok last September, and I didn’t expect all the blessings that will shower upon me," Angela says.

The original song that she posted is a track called "Ako Naman Muna", which roughly translates to This Time I Come First, an alluring and relatable tune about self-love. Though she only shared a preview of this composition on TikTok, it quickly went viral on the app. Resonating with a multitude of audiences, it was eventually shared on other social media platforms as well.

Watch her TikTok video in this link: @AngelaKen Video

According to Angela, she was at a low point in her life when she wrote the song, and was even in tears while writing the first verse. "The story behind 'Ako Naman Muna' is very personal and special to me," she shares. "I felt unproductive, uncertain and lost because I can’t do the things I used to do, I can’t meet some of the people who makes me happy, I can’t go to the places I want to go. I felt stuck, and sadness pulled me down. That was why the first verse was that deep and relatable to reality. Until one night, I posted it and I never expected it to go viral. All I wanted was to let that song go and not finish it anymore. But I saw a lot of people feel the same way [as I did], and I don’t want that. I got inspired to make the chorus full of hope and give light to those who are in darkness."

"Ako Naman Muna" is such a powerful song, that it eventually reached the radar of ABS-CBN's Star Music. Angela is now a Star Magic talent,recording artist under ABS-CBN MUSIC and will soon be seen in projects and shows under Dreamscape Entertainment. She is also slated to appear as one of the new-breed singers on the musical variety show, ASAP. For Angela, getting her start on TikTok is a fulfillment of a lifelong dream, as it led the way for her to join ABS-CBN. She shares, "Ever since I was a kid, one of my dreams is to become a well known singer. I love singing because it helps me express how I feel in a unique way."

TikTok is brimming with talents, similar to Angela, just waiting to be discovered. The platform serves as an ideal virtual stage for aspiring performers, empowering them to showcase their music, and allowing them to be heard by audiences around the world, even beyond the platform.

He’s also known for his sharp tongue and puffed up personality but when anything he works on becomes an instant success, he’s entitled to a certain number of airs.

Suddenly an overnight success, Xiao You finds herself basking in the spotlight while Xing Cheng desperately searches for a way to rid himself of his current string of bad luck.

 iWantTFC offers special early bird rate now till March 11; movie officially premieres on March 12

And so, March has begun. To millions around the world, it is the month that sits at the cusp of winter and spring when, as the cliche goes, birds sing, flowers bloom, bees buzz and people fall madly in love.
So, it's a very good time for leading Filipino film outfit ABS-CBN Star Cinema to make a special delivery of a much-awaited Filipino romantic comedy pairing right to your home or personal gadget via the streaming app iWantTFC.
Starring award-winning TV and film superstars Coco Martin ("Ang Probinsiyano", "Walang Hanggan", "You're My Boss") and Angelica Panganiban ("Walang Hanggang Paalam", "Banana Sundae", "That Thing Called Tadhana") in their first film together, the rollicking movie delight, "LOVE OR MONEY," becomes available for global viewing on iWantTFC starting March 12, but viewers can avail of the early bird rate now till March 11!* (See details below).
Seal the package with premium label as it is directed by blockbuster hit filmmaker Mae Cruz Alviar ("Crazy Beautiful You", "Bride For Rent", "She's the One", "Maging Sino Ka Man").
To date, the film trailer has earned over 5 million views across Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in just two weeks.

The story of "LOVE OR MONEY" revolves around ex-lovers, Leon (Coco Martin) and Angel (Angelica), who cross paths in Dubai three years later after they spent one magical night together that ended with a proposal.  But the following day, Angel left Leon without any word.
When they meet again in Dubai where Leon works as a waiter, he finds out that Angel is determined to do anything to realize her dreams and ambitions. As Angel helps Leon figure out his way into the city, Leon sweeps her off her feet again. But will love be enough the second time around?
The Magic of Dubai

In an interview with ABS-CBN, Coco said he has been to Dubai three times. "I always look forward to coming to this city," he said. "It's beautiful. There is always something new.  Something is always being built. The architecture continuously evolves."
The film was shot before the COVID pandemic. Coco shared his observations about Filipinos in Dubai, a destination city in United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture, and a lively nightlife.
"There are so many Filipinos living in Dubai, and they are competitive, professional, proud of their work and happy with their jobs," Coco said. "Maayos sila doon. (Their situation is good over there). I learned a lot from them. But you also feel a sense of sadness as they don't have their families with them." 

Coco added that he completely understood where his character Leon is coming from. "Before, I was one of the many Filipinos who dreamt of working abroad. Our mentality is working abroad is the solution to hardships in our country. The character of Leon was me in my younger years. My character is a waiter and I worked as a waiter before in restaurants and hotels.  I also worked as a janitor.  But in doing the role, I had to study the location as overseas Filipinos in Canada, America, Italy and here in UAE are different because they live in different environments and cultures."
This was echoed by his co-star, Angelica, who said that playing the role of Angel was a challenge. "It's a responsibility," she said in an interview with ABS-CBN. "When you're playing a role that represents your kababayan abroad, you have to be accurate. You have to make sure that they can truly relate to what they're seeing. That when they watch it, they'll say, 'oo, ganyan talaga kami (that's really how we are)'".
Angelica said that she enjoyed finally working with Coco where she got to know him better as a person.  Coco, on the other hand, said that when you mention "Angelica Panganiban", you know it's going to be a good project.  And that Star Cinema didn't make a mistake with "LOVE OR MONEY".
"Sulit na sulit ito (this is worth your money)," said Coco. When asked if he will choose love or money, "Before money, but today love," Coco said with a big laugh.
Joining Coco and Angelica in "LOVE OR MONEY" are Gelli De Belen, Ketchup Eusebio, Cai Cortez, Matet De Leon, Dante Rivero, Teresa Loyzaga, Norm McLeod, Pinky Amador, Cheska Inigo and Rose Artist Studio's Jeremiah Lisbo.
You can catch "LOVE OR MONEY" on iWantTFC for a special early bird rate of USD3.99/AED14.99/EUR4.49/GBP3.99 until March 11. Register on iWantTFC for free, no need for subscription or commitment.  *For instructions on how to buy tickets to "LOVE OR MONEY", visit 03/04/2021 (TV Series Craze)
