Ely Buendia Denies Writing Softdrink Article in Philippine Star

In an article entitled “Singing Out Loud To Rock Impossibilities” published by the Philippine Star last August 21, it was named that Ely Buendia himself wrote the article. Ely Buendia expressed his rage against this ghostwriter through the Pupil Forum. He said that “that article, part of an ongoing soft drink campaign, was heartfelt, hard-sell, hubristic, and humorless.” It was far cry from Ely’s writing as I was able to read the actual article last August 21.

According to Ely, “despite this unpleasant episode I still have a very healthy and respectful relationship with the soft drink brand for which the article was commissioned.”

When Robin was approached by FHM, he was surprised to know that it was FHM. He thought that he will be asked to pose nude. Robin has a very different image for the magazine. He’s not wearing his usual leather jacket and bad boy look, in fact, he wore suits that made him look very gentleman.

Sugarfree’s 10th Year Anniversary Held at Music Museum


The band that brought us melodramatic lyrics and melodies, Sugarfree, has recently celebrated its 10th year anniversary as a band through their 2-night concert at the Music Museum called Dekada. Fans and supporters of the band watched the concert as they performed their hits throughout the years such as “Telepono”, “Hari ng Sablay”, “Burnout”, “Makita Kang Muli”, “Huwag Ka ng Umiyak” and many others. They were accompanied by the Manila Symphony Orchestra which brought more drama to their performance. Yours truly watched the first night of the concert (August 28, Friday) and it was a different way of seeing the band aside from their usual bar gigs. The band wanted to have a more intimate approach and I believe that they were able to achieve that.

Sugarfree has just released a new album entitled “Mornings and Airports” and is already available through major record stores.

Coconut Farmers: Lani Mercado, Resign!


Lani Mercado was appointed as one of the board members of San Miguel Corporation a few weeks ago but it seems that her appointment faces controversy.  Coconut farmers all over the country, who are members of a Non-Government Organization called Centro Saka, were actually disappointed about this appointment because they feel that Lani is not fit to become one. These coconut farmers are aiming to reclaim their rights from San Miguel Corporation and they feel that this public appointment of Lani is a “mockery” of their almost 2 decades crusade against the multinational corporation. According to them, Lani Mercado and even other individuals that are being appointed by Philippine presidents, do not know the plight of the coconut farmers in SMC. They also think that this issue is bigger than Lani Mercado and that she is being used by someone such as Danding Cojuangco who would like to control San Miguel Corporation again.

These coconut farmers are requesting for Lani Mercado’s resignation to be able to see the real issue.

john lloyd

The new Star Cinema film, In My Life, which stars John Lloyd Cruz, Luis Manzano and Vilma Santos is being talked about nowadays because of its gay theme.

John Lloyd Cruz portrays a “straight” acting gay man who has Luis Manzano as a boyfriend. Vilma Santos portrays Luis Manzano’s mother who went to the US and lived with them. The story revolves around the three characters. To make John Lloyd and Luis’s relationship more realistic, they have to do intimate scenes together. Well, they don’t have an actual kissing scene, John Lloyd said that it was an “intimate scene”. But after kissing Luis Manzano, John Lloyd still prefers to kiss women than men. He’s still “straight” and prefers to be that way. He doesn’t have any issues with gays but for him, it was a character he had to do. Portraying a gay character is not actually very challenging for him but the fact that he’s acting with Vilma Santos.
