MAJA’S “BELIEVE”: WENT FOR THE GOLD…THEN FOR THE PLATINUM

Maja Salvador’s debut album “Believe” signifies more than an exhibition of her singing abilities, one of her many talents. It has proven once again that this girl’s formula for success pans out the way she intends to: dream hard…then work hard for it to come true. “Napatunayan ko na hindi mahirap mangarap. Kapitan mo lang ang pangarap mo. Huwag mong pakawalan.”

It was an inspiring feat for Maja when “Believe” reached 7,500 in sales figures and had been certified Gold by the Philippine Association of the Recording Industry (PARI) last June 5th. It was quite an overwhelming triumph for a young woman testing the waters of a different industry. With her diligent willingness to leave a mark on music and a charismatic hold on a fanbase that never seem to thin out, things that took place after this Gold certification fell beyond the reach of the word “success”.

Numbering in the accolades of “Believe” is the Philippine Movie Press Club awarding the album as the Dance Album of the Year at the 6th PMPC Star Awards For Music, with another nomination for Maja for the New Female Recording Artist Of the Year award. It also pioneered the bar-raising “mastered for iTunes” hallmark for the entire OPM industry. “Dahan-dahan”, the flagship single for the album claimed the nod of OPM buffs as it charted atop national radio and music TV channel charts, and scored almost 6 million views for its music video on YouTube.The end of the “Believe” era is still not in sight though.

With a sprawling spread of recognition under her belt, “Believe” hits it even bigger with Maja tirelessly touring the country to promote the record and eventually, the countless hours of boosting the acquaintance of the public with the new sound that is Maja, paid off. Only 6 months after receiving the Gold award from PARI, “Believe” called for a crown change to a Platinum certification, selling over massive 15,000 copies. The plaques were handed to a surprised and teary-eyed Maja on ABS-CBN’s ASAP show last Sunday, December 14.

OPM’s kudos to Maja’s musical work is truly significant, but the belief that she can take over this industry too as regarded by her fans, both newfound ones and those who have grown with her from the early beginnings of her career, is the highlight on Maja’s impressive resumé so far.

Though some “critics” bomb her vocal ability as half-baked at best, Maja knew better: she can sing, and right now that’s what she wants to do. Unlike most of her contemporaries, it wasn’t her intention to follow the regrettable practice of merely creating a 30-minute ad for a celebrity brand. In creating “Believe”, singing and creating a real record was her primary concern. At the very same time she can dance, she can act, she can model. She can relate to the audience. She knows how to envelop herself in the uniqueness of her skillset. From where we’re all standing, Maja’s got it pretty good at entertaining overall.

More than the efforts she has given to complete and promote the album, Maja only has one last advice: “Just BELIEVE!”

Philips Quad Suspension Light 58022 Philips Orbit Suspension Light 58090

Celebrate brighter holidays with Philips!

1. Share the light with your loved ones with Philips’ LED lighting

2. Add sophistication to your home with intuitive lighting technologies

Christmas is the brightest season in the Philippines, and it’s the perfect time to decorate your homes with creative light displays that usher in the Holidays.

“With price hikes in electricity, households need to consider more energy-efficient lighting options,” says Christine Villanueva, Country Marketing Manager for Philips Lighting. “With the help of Philips—the global leader in lighting, your home can be brightly lit this holiday season without breaking the bank.”

Philips has a wide variety of lighting technologies that complement your home’s holiday theme—from LED light bulbs that you can use on your dining area’s ceiling to LEDs that helps you work effectively, Philips has a bright solution for you!

Bring the holiday cheer to your living room

“Filipinos love gatherings—and there’s no bigger gathering than Christmas,” Villanueva says. “For the most part, the holiday celebration takes place in your living room, where you can welcome friends and loved ones with beautiful light displays.”

If you’re looking for a wider light with superb brightness, then you should consider the Philips Quad Suspension Light. This square-themed light comes with VariLume and dimming technology that produces superior brightness and illumination, while saving up to 80 percent of energy compared to conventional lighting.

For people looking for round-shaped lighting displays, we recommend the Philips Orbit Suspension Light. This circular-shaped light delivers a warm white light effect that can last up to 20 years. It also offers the same energy savings as the Philips Quad.

A brighter Noche Buena

Philips lighting can help bring out the best in your dining room! You can add a comforting hue in the living room with the Philips Naturelle Tea Lights.

For a bigger dining area makeover, install the Philips Slices Suspension Light. This lighting technology emits graduated tones that create a stunning centerpiece.

Villanueva adds that this technology “is designed with energy-saving bulbs” which helps households in conserving energy while minimizing costs.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for a simpler holiday theme, then the Philips Jars Suspension Light is the right product for you. This brings out a clean and distinctive silhouette that creates a tender atmosphere while you are enjoying meals with your loved ones.

Comfort in your bedroom

“This is the perfect season to reward yourself for a year of hard work,” says Villanueva. “What better way to do this than to make your bedroom even more relaxing?”

The Philips Vane Desk Light is the perfect complement for your bedside working table. This lighting technology provides bright light without causing eyestrain. It also helps increase productivity with its warm white-light features that also conserve energy.

Philips Disney-Designed LED lights, on the other hand, are perfect for children’s bedrooms.

These lamps are the ultimate companions for a child’s imagination, as it comes in different shapes of beloved Disney characters—including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Cars, and Disney Princesses.

“Show how special your loved ones are by giving them the best gifts this Christmas,” Villanueva says.

Jennylyn’s most favorites photo shoot for tanduay calendar.

JENNYLYN MERCADO PRESS RELEASE

The country’s foremost rhum makers, Tanduay Distillers, unveil the latest Filipina beauty to grace their calendars, billboards, and posters—actress and athlete Jennylyn Mercado.

Among the most sought-after celebrities in GMA’s stable of talents, Jennylyn has starred in numerous television dramas, the most recent of which are Second Chances and Rhodora X, as well as many movies. The upcoming comedy, English Only Please, will see her star in an important role. She has also been a recording artist, her debut solo album Living the Dream having reached certified platinum status in 2004 and followed by four more albums, the latest being Never Alone released just this year.

jen_jungle

In the midst of acting, singing, and hosting duties, Jennylyn also performs as a triathlete. As a woman of strength, she has dedicated much of her time to the advancement of women’s rights, having even worked with the country’s most well-known organization advocating for women’s issues, GABRIELA.

Add to these the multitude of award nominations in her belt—standouts of which are for Best Television Host (2011, Femalenetwork.com), People’s Choice for Best Actress (2006, Metro Manila Film Festival), and Best Supporting Actress (2005, Gawad Tanglaw Awards) which she all won—Jennylyn emerges hands-down a role model for Filipino women.

jen_bedroom

And with her breathtaking physique, acquired through rigorous training and constant exercise, it is no wonder that she figures not only among women’s most idolized celebrities, but also among men’s most desired.

With her achievements, Jennylyn has acquired a status impossible for the great talent scouts of Tanduay Distillers to ignore. Known for acknowledging great Filipino talents, Tanduay takes pride in partnering with this world-class Filipina icon, who in 2014 and throughout 2015 celebrates with them 160 years of being a world-class Filipino icon themselves.

jen_safari

Begun in 1854, Tanduay has earned the distinction of being one of the finest and most sophisticated rhums around the world—and global sophistication is truly one of the traits Jennylyn represents for the brand.

Karylle scores gold for ‘K’

Singer-actress-TV host Karylle received a Gold Record Award for her latest album “K” yesterday, December 4, during the live episode of “It’s Showtime.” PolyEast Records’ Managing Director Jesmon Chua presented the award.

The album includes the hit singles “Sa ‘Yo Na Lang Ako,” “Kiss You,” “Kapiling Kita,” among others.

“K” celebrates a number of firsts for Karylle – joining a contest and collaborating with a cousin-rapper.

“I’ve never ever joined a contest before, but it was worth it because I got to sing a beautiful song – Lara Maigue’s ‘Sa ‘yo Na Lang Ako,’ which everyone loves,” expresses K. “I am also thrilled big time that I got to collaborate with one of my favorite rappers – my cousin Dash Calzado.”

The singer-actress also thanks Kiko Salazar for turning an unfinished “Kiss You” to complete song, and for contributing “Kapiling Kita.”

Karylle adds, “This album is extra special because of a million reasons. It was a reunion with my first two producers Ito Rapadas, who produced ‘Sa’Yo Nalang Ako’ and DJ MOD, who remixed ‘Bad Boys.’”

Karylle also expressed gratitude towards friend and co-host Jhong Hilario for choreographing “Kiss You,” which was performed by her “It’s Showtime” family, including its hosts, staff, Dumbo, XB GenSan and Showtime dancers, for the music video.

IMG_0843

The album also fulfilled Karylle’s dream of recording something for the kids as “K” includes her version of “My Own Little Corner,” a song from the musical “Cinderella,” which Karylle topbilled last year for Resorts World Manila.

“I’ve never sold so many CDs in my life!” gushes Karylle. “I am so thankful for all the love and support. Many thanks to everyone who watched our shows with my band Reasons once or twice or even more times!”

Asked what her fans can expect in the future, she shared that she is currently working on a number of new songs with Alvin Cornista, whom Karylle met years ago when she celebrated her birthday with Nyko Maca + Playground. Karylle and Alvin collaborated on previous singles like “OMG,” “Running,” and “Bad Boys.”

Weigh-ins

BIBIANO FERNANDES LOOKS TO KEEP ONE FC BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE AGAINST KIM

MANILA, Philippines — Arguably the most decorated mixed martial artist in the world today, reigning ONE FC Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes (16-3-0) will headline ONE FC: WARRIOR’S WAY opposite unbeaten Korean prospect, Dae Hwan Kim (10-0-1), Friday night at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines.

Fernandes is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt who grew up on the hardened streets of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil. He has multiple world Jiu-Jitsu tournament wins and is currently riding an eight fight win streak, being so far unbeaten inside the ONE FC cage since debuting for the promotion in 2012.

He is also 3-0 in fights in Manila.

Fernandes became the ONE FC champion after he impressively dominated the always tough Soo Chul Kim, winning by unanimous decision. Against Dae Hwan Kim however, Fernandes is expected to face a stiff challenge to his ONE FC belt.

Kim is undefeated at 10 wins and no losses as a professional mixed martial artist, recently dismantling highly-touted Filipino warrior Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon in his last fight by submission. Five of Kim’s 10 victories are by submission while two are by knockout, making Kim a true test to Fernandes’ championship mettle.

In the world of combat sports, the best fighting the best is ideal for fans and the sport alike, but rarely are we treated to such an evenly matched contest. The main event showdown between Fernandes and Kim promises fireworks as Kim looks to dethrone the champion in front of a packed MOA Arena crowd.

Fernandes however will do everything in his capacity to prevent that from happening, drawing upon his years of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to nullify Kim’s ferocious offensive. With both fighters ripped and ready for action this Friday, tensions rise and fans can expect an all-out war to unfold inside the ONE FC cage.

When two fighters of this caliber collide, the outcome is anything but predictable and fans can expect edge-of-your-seat excitement at ONE FC’s biggest show of the year.

Apart from the exciting main event, Team Lakay fighters Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon and Honorio Banario all get to see action along with ferocious flyweight Rene Catalan of Catalan Fighting Systems. Also on the card is the ONE FC debut of Filipino-American heavyweight, Brandon “The Truth” Vera as he takes on URCC champion Igor Subora of the Ukraine.

Former professional boxer Jujeath Nagaowa and former WBO women’s bantamweight champion Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton will kick things off for Team Philippines in the preliminary bouts.
