Si Dante at si Max

Last December 17, 2015 ,  I was invited to witness four of the films by Dir.  Brillante Mendoza, a world renowned  and awarded director in collaboration with Max's Restaurant , happened at SM Aura Cinema ,which took them years of doing some researches , annotations , having to see the real moves of the business in particular the employees that makes it more significant, and of course making the film more relevant with regards to when and what kind of generation the event did happened on its real time.

This 4 short films are one of the most  traditional films I see which clearly described the kind of era and Filipino customs we had depending on the time where this people engaged in their real life stories.

In the first short film, Tagpuan, Mendoza tackles how true love transcends the test of time: An elderly woman faithfully shares her special birthday meal to the love of her life in their unlikely tagpuan. Debut, the second short film, shows a father’s love to both his only daughter and departed wife. Direk Dante showed that in spite of living a simple life, celebrating milestones is always and forever will be special. The third film, on the other hand, inspires every broken-hearted women to keep the faith despite bitter love stories. Entitled Kasal, this story features a waitress who called off her engagement and is having a hard time trying not to think about her growing pains as she works for a wedding banquet. To cap the night off, Direk Dante’s Delivery showcases street sounds and the Filipino’s innate affinity to the performing arts through a humble production featuring rap and dance numbers. 

Si Dante At Si Max’s is a call for Filipinos and the world to keep on finding beauty in everyday life. Indeed, Direk Dante has yet again brought the bright brillante to the whole house that night. As a tribute to the Philippine indie film icon, a surprise video was released as a testament to his exemplary work and his light-hearted way of living. 

This exclusive and intimate meet and greet was graced by Direk Dante’s friends, special guests and avid film viewers. This is event is made possible through a partnership with SM Aura Cinema.  The four short films will be released digitally some time in 2016.

Lancaster New City Cavite Tour and Gift Giving to Lucky Child Residents

It was my First time to visit the Lancaster New City in Cavite and I just taught before  that it was just a myth to have a place that is far from the city where you and the rest of your family can stay, live, learn , work , play and grow for the rest of your life without having to go the main city .

And with much surprise with the price, it was one of the most affordable one with a minimum lot area of 100 plus sqm and floor area of 100 having 3 to 4 bedrooms is really for typical family of 3 to 4 children.

Gone are the days that people would just have one goal of reaching a place and destinations where all the businesses, schools and major things that would take place will be on the Greater Metropolis ,

Today, it is quite clear through Profriends, LANCASTER New City made an impact of change on society that it is truly possible for every community we have in this country , but this time they do it with a new place where you can be of more comfort, having an inner peace, work and do the natural grinds of life  within the place that is to good to be true. This can be one of the examples that every region in our country should model.

This is one that fits right specially to an OFW Family where fathers left their love ones in one secluded  peaceful and secured community.

After the tour we have been amazed and see how Profriends  values their clients by giving them a treat for this Christmas Tagged as "Santa's Little Surprises" as they sing Christmas songs and later on give away the gifts to targeted 300 children to celebrate the true essence of Christmas , sharing Love, Peace and Happiness.

Supposedly, a Christmas light show is one of the surprises that we will be covering but it so happened that this very day of Saturday December `19, 2015, was the landfall of the typhoon here in Luzon. Yet I don't regret  that I once witness this kind of project that would be one of the unique and could have an impact for every lives and possibly since its election time , a presidential aspiring candidate should aim that every region of our country should at least have this kind of thinking, a euphoria for the greater good of every citizen of this nation.

For a glimpse of the Christmas Lighting Special of Lancaster watch the video below:

Lancaster New City is THE FAMILY-FRIENDLY CITY, It is PRO-F that spans to more than FRIEND'S flagship project that spans to more than 1,400 hectares, covering Imus, Kawit and General Trias. For more details on the Christmas Light Show and Lancaster New City, visit or

Expect waves of high-spirited excitement, heartwarming romance, wholesome fun,  and excellent Filipino values, to take the holiday season’s finest film festival by storm. Vic and Ai-Ai spearhead the fun topsy-turvy of characters as they are featured side by side Alden and Maine in the movie written by Jose Javier Reyes and Bibeth Orteza and directed by Jose Javier Reyes.
This early, festival observers are already predicting a surefire box-office reign for “My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” which is jointly-offered by OctoArts Films, M-Zet Television Productions, Inc., APT Entertainment, GMA Films and Meda Production. While the country is being swept away by the record-breaking loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine “Yayadub” Mendoza, MMFF is poised to be another territory for conquest by the Aldub phenomenon. This is the duo’s most exciting film debut.
“My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” also features Joey de Leon, the “Eat Bulaga” lolas Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, and Wally Bayola, and Ryzza Mae Dizon, in special appearances.
Vic Sotto plays the role of Vito who finds himself at odds and in a bitter professional rivalry with Cora, played by Ai-Ai. The two are both in the business of mounting special events and productions and have both made a successful name in the same profession. The conflict happens when their respective wards – Anna (played by Maine) daughter of Vito, gets romantically entangled with Cora’s beloved nephew Dondi (played by Alden). As expected, the “parents” actively reject the budding romantic involvement between the star-crossed lovers and willingly struck an unexpected truce to prevent this romance from happening.
The plot thickens when the unexpected alliance of the Vito and Cora starts blooming into something else. Now, it’s the turn of the youngsters to feel disconcerted with the idea of having their folks enter into a different relationship zone.  Now it was the turn of Dondi and Anna to react to the situation. They did not like the idea of his auntie and her father falling in love with each other.  Now it was the younger generation vehemently reacting to this new romance.
So where will all this end? What are the possible solutions and resolutions to bring closure and new beginnings to these young, exciting lovers? Catch the excitement, the love, the fun and romance when “My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” starts showing on Christmas Day at the MMFF.
