Taylor Lautner is the newest endorser of clothing giant Bench

After months of speculations on who will be the new face of the brand, Bench finally announced its newest endorser
and its the Twilight hunk- Taylor Lautner!

Take a sneak peek at Taylor Lautner’s upcoming billboard for Bench.
Taylor Lautner Bench

A few months back, my friend and I were talking about who should be the next face of Bench. And I remember telling him that I would love to see Taylor Lautner as endorser of the brand. I think Taylor is very humble and simple. And I think a lot of people can easily relate to his style.

After signing, he will now be joining the pack of International Bench Endorsers including Adam Levine, Michael Trevino, Jessica Sanchez, Lee Min Ho, Liam Hemsworth, Bruno Mars, and Lucy Hale.

And the big question: Is he coming to the Philippines?

Knowing how big Bench is, they are surely bringing Taylor Lautner closer to his Filipino fans. In fact, all of their International endorsers visited the country for the promo and meet-and-greet for fans.

Are you guys excited to see Taylor Lautner?

The Art Of Letting Go: Mariah Carey’s 11th Studio Album

The Art Of Letting Go


The title of Mariah Carey’s 11th studio album was announced recently and it will be called: The Art Of Letting Go.

I am extremely excited for this album because I am a huge fan of Mariah, plus the fact that I love her collaboration with
Miguel which will be part of the album.

My favorite Mariah album is E=MC2 and I am hoping that the new one will be as good as that. I am also hoping for
more power-ballads and midtempo tracks with less raps.

One Direction is the newest endorser of Penshoppe

One Direction Endorsement



One Direction is the newest endorser of Penshoppe

What’s #Next for Penshoppe? 5 Names: Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Niall Horan- collectively known as One Direction.

Knowing how giving Penshoppe is to their loyal followers, expect the brand to bring One Direction here in the Philippines. Maybe not a concert, but surely a Fan Con bigger than Zac Efron’s recent event.

The boys now join the ranks of Zac Efron, Mario Maurer, Leighton Meester, and others as Penshoppe Global Brand Ambassadors.

Penshoppe is definitely the brand to beat!

Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2012: Cosmo Men Unite

First of all, I would like to send my love to Summit Media and my friend, Allan, for giving me VIP access to the event.

I’ve been watching Cosmo Bachelor Bash since 2007, and I never missed a single show since then. And last night was probably the biggest turnout of attendees. The VIP area was jam-packed and the regular area was extremely crowded. When we get there, all seats were already occupied so we had to find the best place to stand. We were really lucky because our spot was right beside the runway allowing us to see every bachelors up-close.

Since I am also an Event Director, I can’t help but comment on some things. First, I love the multi-level stage that was utilized all throughout the event. I also love the runway and its side extensions. Some segments were great, while some needs more rehearsal time and proper execution. Lighting was good too!

I would like to share some of the  photos (taken by me) from the event.

I once told my friends that Paulo will be this year’s Top Cosmo Bachelors and my prediction was right.
Well, after joining the Kapamilya network, being included in one of the network’s highest-rated show, and appearing on various sexy billboard for Bench, there’s no reason for him not to top the list.

I had a chance to work with Paulo Avelino during the 10th year Anniversary Party of Mossimo Philippines. I approached him and we started having a quick-talk. At the backstage, I remember him taking a photo of us with his camera. And i also have a snapshot of us.

I am really happy that Paulo made it to the Top! He’s a very humble and hardworking guy. He’s also a good actor and he has proven his worth in the entertainment industry. I will forever support Paulo because that’s the only way i can thank him for the kindness and his genuine smile.

Oh my! the Twitter world erupted with words of sadness after Zayn Malik, 1/5 of One Direction, decided to deactivate his Twitter account. His nearly 5 Million followers (including me!) was shocked to find his account inactive. According to his last few tweets, the cutest member of One Direction blames hate for his decision to stop communicating via Twitter.

So for now, i just want to share this image i created and shared to some of his fans worldwide.
