“Eyedress sounds like nobody but himself. Keep your eye on what he does next” – NME

“Set to do to Manila, what Arcade Fire did to Montreal and Pulp did to Sheffield” ~ Dazed

“Spacey songs by young Filipinos about nearly killing your girlfriend while hiking aren’t nearly common enough these days” – The Guardian

On April 10th Eyedress releases his brand new mixtape ‘Hearing Colors’ and it features 12 brand new tracks recorded in his bedroom in Manila. It is the follow up to his debut EP ‘Supernatural’ (released last year).

Based in Quezon City, Manila, Eyedress is 23-year-old Filipino producer, Idris Vicuña. This album was recorded using Fruity Loops in his bedroom on a PC laptop handed down to him by his father. Since his emergence he has supported the likes of Jungle, Grimes and Mac DeMarco, and earned plaudits from the likes of I-D, The Observer and Dazed & Confused. Those who caught his debut UK live shows last month were captivated – with NME describing one as “far from the cliché of a bedroom producer as it’s possible to imagine – it’s punk as fuck, weird and utterly compelling”.

Eyedress will return to UK/Europe in May for a string of shows, including The Great Escape.

Sam Concepcion is New Endorser of Chef’s Noodle

Chef’s Noodle, the new favorite go-to restaurant for hearty Korean dishes, introduced its new endorser—actor, singer and dancer Sam Concepcion.

Sam is the newest addition to the roster of celebrity endorsers of Chef’s Noodle, including TV host Grace Lee and gorgeous couple Lloyd and Shamcey Supsup-Lee. One of the most in-demand teen actors today, Sam exudes a fresh and youthful vibe that is characteristic of Chef’s Noodle. The first international master franchise of the Chef’s Noodle brand from South Korea, the restaurant is fast becoming a diner’s haven for those who want a taste of the land of K-Pop and kimchi—and more.

“I am truly honored to be part of the Chef’s Noodle team,” says Sam. “The restaurant has been known for its delectable dishes and high culinary quality. Who would not want to be associated with that?”

Interior 1Interior 2Interior 3

Offering a wide array of mouth-watering food choices, Chef’s Noodle boasts of dishes especially crafted by no less than award-winning Korean celebrity chef Choi In Sun. Among the must-try menu items when one visits the restaurant are Chef’s Noodles, Starking Fire Sushi, Bibimbap, Japchae, Haemul Seafood Pajun (Korean pancake with shrimp and squid, spring onions and bell pepper), Leek Shrimp Twigim, Chicken Kas (breaded chicken fillet with white creamy sauce), Spicy Dukbokki, and well-loved desserts such as ice cream and gelato.

Sam furthers, “My friends and I love to hang out and try different kinds of food. I especially love Chef’s Noodle because you get to enjoy a delicious meal at an affordable price. It’s a cool combination of a fast food meal and a fine dine setting. The interiors of the restaurant are as inviting as the appetizing menu. I can’t wait to invite my friends to try Chef’s Noodle and love it the same way I did.”

“Sam’s cool and casual personality as well as his vibrant energy perfectly capture the brand. As a fairly new player in the food industry here in the Philippines, Chef’s Noodle is indeed a rising star—just like our new endorser Sam,” says Nancy Go, Chef’s Noodle operations manager. “We promise to always delight our customers with our signature dishes and new offerings. Chef’s Noodle will always remain to be the Korean fast food restaurant that Filipinos learned to love.”

What makes your mom #1?

What makes your mom #1?

NIDO FORTIFIED® invites kids to let moms wear their love on Mother’s Day

clip_image004

The “Wear Your Love” website by NIDO FORTIFIED provides a fun and meaningful way for kids and family members to express their love towards their moms.

It is said that the greatest validation that moms will ever receive will always come from their loved ones, especially from their kids. Whether it involves the grandest gestures of love or the simplest ones, as long as it’s from the people who matter most to them, it will always be special.

Last April 8, NIDO FORTIFIED collaborated with dads and kids to be part of a movement orchestrating a unique and very personal surprise to recognize the #1 Moms in their lives through the NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love” campaign.

“At NIDO FORTIFIED, we feel that the best way to make moms feel special is not necessarily going big and full-scale but in the sincerest way. Nothing can make a mom happier than the reassurance from her family that she is loved, and that her role in the family is irreplaceable,” shared Denise Chua, Nestle Philippines Consumer Marketing Manager. “In line with NIDO FORTIFIED’s commitment to honor our moms as #1, we aim to make this year’s tribute to moms even more heartfelt by teaming up with Filipino families through the “Wear Your Love” campaign for mom.”

Media guests were among the first to know about NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love” – a Mother’s Day initiative where kids are invited to publicly show their appreciation for their moms by declaring their heart-warming messages through customized shirts. Through the help of dad and other family members, kids are encouraged to answer the question “What makes your mom #1?” and craft their messages for mom at www.nido-fortified.ph.

The first 2,000 statements submitted to the campaign website will be transformed into one-of-a-kind shirts produced by local clothing brand Bench Lifestyle. Capping off this creative tribute to moms, each personalized statement shirt in NIDO FORTIFIED-inspired cans will be delivered to moms as surprise packages on Mother’s Day.

Kids can submit their messages for mom beginning April 8 up to April 27 or until supplies last. For more information on the NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love” Mother’s Day campaign or to submit your messages for mom, please visit www.nido-fortified.ph.

Homegrown Olympian Michael Christian Martinez bagged the gold in the recently held Triglav Trophy International Figure Skating Competition in Jesenice, Slovenia. The 18-year old Martinez finished the free skate finals in the Senior Men’s category with a score of 195.13 points, besting Japan, United Kingdom, Korea, Austria and Norway.

“I thank God for this blessing, another gold medal in the senior event. I’m very happy I made it to first place,” Martinez said on his Facebook page.

With the Triglav Trophy, Martinez now has three gold medals in the senior level which includes the recent Skate Helena in Serbia and the Crystal Skate in 2012 in Romania.

Filipino American Samantha Cabiles finished 6th in the Junior Ladies’ category out of 21 skaters with a score of 100.04 points.

The Philippine Skating Union (PhSU), which is a member of the International Skating Union (ISU) named Martinez and Cabiles as the country’s representatives to the Triglav Trophy.

Every year since 1992, the Triglav Trophy gathers over 100 of the best young figure skaters from all over the world. The competition is hosted in Jesenice ice hall Podmežakla and has its roots in 1992.

Martinez took up figure skating when he was eight, inspired by skaters spinning and jumping while shopping with his mother at SM Southmall. He began training in 2010 in the United States and since then his lifelong dream has been to win an Olympic medal. Martinez has garnered over 190 medals and trophies from various international and local competitions.

Cabiles, who was born in Hawaii and is now based in Michigan started skating since she was 11. Of Filipino decent, Cabiles also competes in the Philippine Nationals and recently ranked second in the2013 Philippine National Figure Skating Championships held at SM Mall of Asia every year. Cabiles also placed 10th in the Junior category of the recent Dragon Trophy competition in Ljubjana, Slovenia in February 2014. She trains in Toronto, Canada. Due to her high and powerful jumps, she earned the moniker, “The Skating Gazelle”.

SM has been the primary supporter of the PhSU since the latter was established in 2005. SM also provides a venue for the events of PhSU for the promotion of ice skating in the Philippines. PhSU received accreditation from the ISU in 2006, coinciding with the opening of the SM Mall of Asia skating rink that year. In turn, PhSU, as the sole governing body for Figure and Speed Skating provides SM and its ice skating rinks with marketing tools such as local and international skating events and its network of skating athletes.

Through the years, SM and the PhSU have conducted several figure skating competitions that have given birth to international champions such as Martinez.

The PhSU is the governing body in the country for figure skating and speed skating. It is a member of the ISU which is the exclusive international sports federation recognized by the International Olympic Committee. The ISU administers speed and figure skating throughout the world. It is composed of a number of national organizations called ISU members who administer ISU sports at the national level.

The excellence demonstrated by skaters especially during competitions is a mark of quality that the SM Skating Rink can provide with its world-class venue and facilities. Property conglomerate SM Prime Holdings, Inc. operates skating rinks through SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. at the SM Mega Fashion Hall in Mandaluyong, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay, and SM Southmall in Las Pinas.

Gloc-9’s Myx Music Awards bodes well for mainstream Pinoy music Gloc-9 won four major awards in the Myx Music Awards 2014 (MMA2014), the most for any artist who was nominated.

But what is more important about this win, is not so much the fact that Gloc-9 won in four out of six categories that he was nominated in, nor that he won four times more than any other artist.

It is that Gloc-9 won it for a song like “Magda.”

The idea of Magdalena is not new. The legend that is Freddie Aguilar introduced us to “Magdalena” in the early 1980’s, a folk song about the plight of a girl who was misunderstood because of the work she was forced into doing. In the Aguilar song, Magdalena is seen as “sawimpalad,” living a wretched life, where her story is one of choicelessness.

Gloc-9’s “Magda” does not point a finger at this woman’s life. The songwriter tells this story with compassion and understanding. Spoken from the perspective of her childhood sweetheart Ernesto, the story is allowed its romance, as it is allowed its heartbreak and undoing. Because Ernesto speaks of Magda, we are given the chance to see Magda as a spit of a girl, as someone who left her childhood behind. In the present she is a woman who is trapped in the cage of her own doing.

The song does not judge Magda, as it does make her human. She is treated as solitary and independent, she is allowed her own individuality, her own voice.

This is Gloc-9 at his most creative, where his decision to use another character to speak about Magda allows for a distance, a non-judgmental stance about her character. It is this creativity that was awarded by the MMA this year. But more importantly what they were honoring was this rapper-songwriter-artist’s decision to tell a story we would rather not hear, of a woman we would rather be blind to.

And this is really the value of Gloc-9’s quadruple wins in this year’s MMAs. He won for the song “Magda” in the context of mainstream original Pilipino music that makes hits out of repetitive lovesongs and novelty. He won for “Magda” at a time when the originality and relevance of original Pilipino pop music is being questioned.

Each MYX Music Award is composed of 60% audience votes and 40% artist or peer votes. And on a year when Gloc-9 wins big for a song like “Magda,” we are being told how the audience and the members of the industry as well, are in fact ready for difficult stories and complex songs.

Winning those four MMAs for “Magda,” as such, is not just a measure of Gloc-9 as artist. It is a measure of what the audience of local music is ready for. One hopes original Pinoy mainstream music heeds this call for creativity and relevance.

He faces the toughest test of his career when he goes up against another top welterweight, Bakhtiyar Abbasov. ONE FC is redefining the mixed martial arts landscape and close to 12,000 fans will pack out the arena to witness history at ONE FC: HONOR & GLORY!”

Ben Askren is a legend in collegiate wrestling with four All-American awards. He finished his wrestling career at the University of Missouri with a record of 153-8. He has won 91 of those bouts with pins, third most in NCAA Division I history. He also wrestled in the US Olympics team in 2008 before transitioning to mixed martial arts. Since his mixed martial arts debut in 2009, he has won 12 bouts in a row in dominating fashion, winning multiple championships and earning recognition as one of the best welterweights in the world.

Bakhtiyar Abbasov is the best mixed martial artist to ever emerge from the eastern European country of Azerbaijan. He has defeated the best in Europe and has decided to come to Asia in search of new challenges. He will get all he can handle in wrestling legend Askren. The balanced knockouts and submission victories on his record is a testament to his versatility and predatory instincts, which will come in handy as he tries to become the first man in history to defeat Askren in a mixed martial arts bout. He has traditionally competed as a middleweight but has set his sights on the ONE FC Welterweight division.

Caros Fodor was one of the top Lightweights in Strikeforce where he ran up an impressive record and was on course for a title shot. A Muay Thai champion and submission grappling champion, he has gone to battle with some of the best in the business and wants to introduce himself to fight fans in Singapore with a spectacular performance.

Willy Ni is a Shooto veteran from the Netherlands. He has faced some of the best Lightweights in Europe, including British slugger, Dan Hardy. He is especially proficient with his grappling skills, having finished nine of his opponents by submission. He gets an opportunity to add another big name to his resume when he takes on the versatile and exciting Fodor.

Jake Butler has firmly established himself as one of the top light heavyweights in the division. He has earned all of his victories by finishes, and possesses some of the best wrestling acumen in the sport having honed his skills as the captain of the Princeton wrestling team. Butler has been unstoppable when he utilizes his signature wrestling techniques, but he has also improved his striking skills while training with Muay Thai world champions at Evolve MMA.

Pane Haraki is the best light heavyweight in New Zealand. A Muay Thai champion who has an arsenal of devastating kicks and elbows, he now gets an opportunity to shine on Asia’s largest stage and  has a stiff test in front of him. This is a classic matchup of striker against grappler and Haraki will be determined to ensure that the striker reigns supreme.
