Arjo Atayde Shares his Character in 'Pure Love!'


I already met this young actor Arjo Atayde for many times now. Our first meeting was during the presscon of "E-Boy" way back in 2012 where he was introduced in the TV series and in the showbiz world. I remember our wacky and cool photos together in the photobooth! :)

Two years later, Arjo is not anymore an 'introducing' actor. He is now leading in his own TV series pairing up with different young actresses. And take note, his different characters given to him were very challenging - a protagonist and antagonist at the same time! 



I'm glad that I met again Arjo now via bloggers' set visit in his current teleserye "Pure Love." And yes, aside from having more new photos with him, I even had more new questions to him about his current role as a bida-kontrabida in the said TV series.

In "Pure Love," Arjo is playing the character of Raymond Dela Cruz. And this character is very much significant in the story!

Here is a video clip of my solo interview with the actor during our set visit:


Well, if I were to ask you, how will you differentiate his character now in "Pure Love" from his previous roles before?! Is it more challenging to play the character of Raymond Dela Cruz? 

"Pure Love,"  one of my favorite Koreanovelas aired in ABS-CBN in 2011 is now airing again in the Kapamilya network via their very own adaptation weeknights right before "TV Patrol" in the undisputed Primetime Bida! (RCB)

Tambayan Sa Kanto Gives New Taste to Our All-Time Favorite Street Foods!

When we say Filipino foods, the so-called street foods which already became Pinoy's all-time favorite may also flash on our minds. Barbeque, fishballs, kwek-kwek, betamax, and other goodies were some of the instances which already comprised the Filipino culture.   

It's good to know that Tambayan Sa Kanto or TSK or simply Sa Kanto, a classy Filipino restaurant located in the heart of The Podium which serves different Pinoy cuisines from the different region of the country gives a brand new connotation to these 'street foods.'

During our bloggers' night one rainy Saturday for "Fun with Philip" where we conducted the event in this place, TSK served us different Pinoy signature dishes. We had the grilled lobster, crispy bagnet, coconut crushed fish fillet, empanada with Ilocano vinegar, and ensaladang pusit to name few. But what surprised us on that food-fulled rainy night were the all-time favorite Pinoy street foods which came with brand new goodness! 

TSK have their very own versions of pork barbeque, fish balls, and turon. Well these three Pinoy goodies sound ordinary. But when you taste them, you can say that you already tasted three of the best foods in the Philippines!

For some, turon is just a plain banana wrapped in pambalot ng lumpia. But TSK put a new twist in this favorite Pinoy dessert - they partnered it with langka sauce making it a world-class sweet dessert!

Well, check out some of the yummy photos of the foods Sa Kanto served to us during our event: 

An All-Time Favorite Pork Barbeque

The Best-Selling Street Food Fish Ball

TSK's Spicy Talong

Kanto's Very Own Lemon Salad Dressing

Sweet Turon with Langka Sauce

The Appetizer Empanada with Ilocano Spiced Vinegar

"Pictures pa lang, ang sarap na!" I know you are already craving while reading this post. :)

Talong or eggplant is not my favorite vegetable. I'd rathet eat okra than talong! But when Sa Kanto served us their version of spicy talong in small stick for pica-pica, my view on this vegetable eventually changed!  

Salad and squid are two of my favorite foods. What if these two things were put together into one great dish?! Yeah, TSK made that via their very own Ensaladang Crispy Squid with TSK Salad Dressing! Awesome! It pulled me to have my second round! Haha! 

"Nagugutom ka na ba?!" You want more?! Well, check out more great foods served to us on that rainy bloggers' night below: 

Ensaladang Crispy Squid Salad with TSK's Dressing

The Chorizo Gambas

The Grilled Lobster with Lemon Sauce

The Coconut Crusted Fish Fillet

With great foods served to their customers and with the very nice ambiance of the place, I admit, Tambayan Sa Kanto is really my favorite restaurant! I've been in this place since last year. And because I'm too very busy with the different commitments, I wasn't able to visit this place for many months. But when opportunity came (this Fun with Philip Bloggers' Night), I strongly recommended this restaurant to sir Philip Abadicio as the venue for our event! And Philip, the staffs of the show, and my blogger friends exceeded their expectation for this restaurant! All of us went home happy and full! :)     

 Remember this logo of the best restaurant in town which serves all our favorite Filipino cuisine:


Want to taste those great foods I've shared in my post as well as experience the same feelings we had in this resto?! Well, visit Tambayan Sa Kanto in the ground floor of The Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. See you there! (RCB)

Food Bits: Tasting a Crunchy Grilled Lobster at Tambayan Sa Kanto!



I admit, I am really a big fan of seafoods! Yes, if you ask me what type of food is my favorite, I'll definitely answer you with SEAFOOD. Grilled squid, calamares, shrimp, sugpo, oyster, and lobster are some of my favorite which comprise this category.

Before my 21KM major run in Milo Marathon on the last week of July, I've organized the relaunch of the lifestyle show "Fun with Philip." When Philip Abadicio, the host of the TV show asked me if what restaurant should we conduct the Bloggers' Night for his show, I quickly recommended Tambayan Sa Kanto! Yes, this is my favorite restaurant which offers the all-time favorite Pinoy cuisine from the different regions of the country. When Philip visited the said place, he agreed with me! The place is so nice and the foods were great!

When the actual bloggers' night took place on a rainy Saturday night, all my blogger friends who were invited got amazed when the resto served us their best dishes. Actually from appetizer to main dishes up to the dessert and drinks served to us, walang itulak-kabigin! "Panalo sa sarap at uniquness!" 

Well, before I share with you the different great foods served to us during our event, allow me to put first in spotlight this main dish called Grilled Lobster! "Favorite ko 'to e!" 

"Itsura pa lamang, ang sarap na," I said to myself! Aside from squid or pusit, lobster or alupihan is really my childhood favorite! And it excited me when Ms. Margaret, the owner of this resto shared with me that part of the menu in the main dish is this yummy grilled lobster!

I often tasted a fried or a sinangag na lobster but Tambayan Sa Kanto put a new twist to my favorite seafood dish. They served us their grilled version with lemon butter sauce! "Wow, ang sarap!" It truly tasted great! I can say that their very own version of grilled lobster is the best seafood dish I've tasted so far! 

This grilled lobster is so crunchy and crispy! "Malutong mula laman hanggang balat!" "Talagang hindi ko pinatawad namnamin ang malinamnam niyang balat!" It's awesome! The lemon butter sauce added more flavor to the grilled lobster!

"More rice please!" This grilled lobster with extra steamed rice served as my carbo-loading on my 21km. major run hours later. :)

On my next posts, I'll share with you more great foods served to us by Tambayan Sa Kanto.

August 2014: "When It Rains, It Pours"


We are already on the third quarter of 2014. Time really runs so fast! And yes, the past months truly kept me busy with different activities!

Aside from being known as the "ghost month,"  the month of August is also known as a typhoon month. Different typhoons and habagat from the previous years visited the country every month of August.

But for me, I take this rainy month as a blessing in disguise. Therefore I titled this post as "when it rains, it pours."  Agree?!

This month, I'll share with you different things which kept me busy on the previous months. Yes, expect for running posts, events, celebrity happenings, and star-studded selfies. And of course, expect for other surprising posts here in this blog for this month of August. 

So again, join me as I conquer the rain with best things happening in my life! Enjoy! (RCB)

Sam Tsui plus Kurt Hugo Schneider plus Rocky Chua Batara equals ROCK!




Today in the modern world, YouTube is the easiest medium for stardom. If you have the talents, guts, and charm, show it to the world via YouTube and you will instantly rose in fame!  

Well, this is how these two heartthrobs started. Known for their covers and medleys, Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider eventually became a popular YouTube duo who captivated the hearts of many fans (including me of course) around the world!  

Many fans were really wishing to see these cute guys in person. Well, their wish was granted as they came live in Manila for the very first time via their Asian Tour Concert which took place in SMX Convention Center, Pasay City last June 25 and 26, 2014 where they performed and serenaded fans with their music! But prior to that said concert, I was lucky enough to meet, mingle, and talk to them in person during our grand presscon!

On the Monday afternoon of June 23, we had a fun lunch together with these boys in the Eclipse Lounge of Solaire Resorts and Casino. While enjoying our meal, we enjoyed at the same time asking questions to them. And yes, they answered our questions willingly and shared interesting facts about themselves.



According to Sam and Kurt, they enjoyed doing collaborative covers of hit songs by Adele, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry. Their own-made versions of the hit songs touched thousands of people around the world!

The duo is really best in doing creative mash-ups! And yes, they gave sample of their cool mash-ups during the event! I will share with you one on my next post. :) The most notably mash-up they made is the Michael Jackson Medley!

Sam shared to me how he started from a humble beginning. Since he is inclined to music, he started his YouTube channel as a music-focused channel! Kurt then became his production partner to give viewers a creative touch of his cover versions. Eventually, each song on his channel garnered millions of views! To date, his videos have amassed over 500 million hits on YouTube alone and in 2013, debuted his original album "Make It Up." Wow!  

On the other hand, Kurt also shared his own success story. It's glad to know that Kurt is songwriter, director and producer of films, music, videos, and recordings. He has over four million YouTube subscribers, 25 million monthly views, 800+ million total views, and over 150 videos on his YouTube channel called KurtHugoSchneider. Amazing!

Kurt is the man behind the production of most of Sam's music and videos, and also known for collaborating with other YouTube stars and musicians.

Sam and Kurt already created a big name for themselves on the internet. What more, their partnership truly created a bigger impact, a sure-fire viral hit! And me as a blogger and social media master joining them, what more can you expect?! #BiggestHit 

Since I already started singing my cover versions of the different songs shared and uploaded in Sound Cloud and already have my two YouTube channels namely RockyBatara and  Vids of Rocks, I'm thinking to have a mash-up with them sooner in the coming days! What do you think?!

Sam and Kurt were already recognized in the mainstream. They already featured in the popular TV shows and different commercials in the U.S.A.

On my next posts, I'll share with you my cool selfies with Sam and Kurt so stay tune!  (RCB)

Meet My Mario Maurer Lookalike Swimming Instructor!



Mario Maurer is a Thai heartthrob actor who becomes popular in the country after leading in the movies like "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Love of Siam," "Pee Mak," and "Suddenly It's Magic." He already visited the country thrice to promote his movies and the local clothing brand wherein he is the endorser. I already met and mingled with him in person. But due to certain circumstances, I didn't got a chance to have a photo opt with him! :(    

During our merman photoshoot for Manila Ocean Park's Mermaid Swim Experience, I got a swimming instructor with a face so familiar. Yes, he has a great resemblance with the Thai actor Mario Maurer. He even look and speaks like our very own actor Enchong Dee. His name is Gibran Karl Alonzo or you may simply call him as GK.      

If his face is familiar to me because he has a lookalike actors, he was the first one who told me, "you look familiar." Unknowingly, we already friends in Facebook right before we met! Nice! 

As I have said in my previous post, being a merman is fun and hard at the same time specially to the one like me who has no talent in swimming. What more, my feet were tight in a fish's tail making the swimming moves more difficult. Yes, I really felt nervous because I didn't know how to swim and to float my body in the water. But this feeling was lessen because of GK His kindness and patience broke the barriers!      

He kept on teaching me the right way to swim and how to float on water. But still, I didn't listen and kept on insisting that I can't. "Magtiwala ka sa'kin, hindi ka lulubog..." But still, I didn't follow him because I'm still nervous with water.

Even though I'm a disobedient child in terms of swimming, he didn't left me and still help me overcome my fear. There was even a time that I accidentally hurt him dahil sa katigasan ng aking ulo. But still, his patience, kindness, and friendliness prevailed. He carried me to our starting location because I can't swim and float!  

Here are some of our  behind-the-scene photos after our 'pahirapan sa paglangoy' moments: 





Actually, GK is a Sharks and Rays Trainer in Manila Ocean Park. Then, he was also assign as a mermaid / merman swimming instructor in this place's special attraction. Thanks God that he was assigned to me!  

Prior to working here at Manila Ocean Park as a swimming instructor of sharks, rays, mermaids, and mermen, GK worked in Singapore as a manager of a huge burger company. He is also a part-time freelance model. He already appeared in the different print ad campaigns of famous clothing lines. I got amaze seeing his many creative, artistic, and hot modelling photos in FB and Instagram.

Not only because he looks like Mario Maurer, I admire GK because of his attitude. His character and quality as a person in and out were truly adorable! I'm proud that I met him in person! No wonder why I love to have more and more photos with him!

Thanks much GK and keep up the good work! See you again soon! (RCB)

A Merman Experience!





"Dyesebel," "Marina," "Mutya," "Aryana,"  or even "Kambal Sirena!" Yes, mermaids were really a huge hit fantasy creatures nowadays in the different TV series. But not only today in our modern world, throwback from the past, movies about mermaids or the so-called half-human, half-fish creatures dominate the human imagination here in the Philippines and around the world. Do you still remember our very own Lorelai, the 60's mermaid played by our veteran actresses?! Or do you still can recall the different actresses who played the most coveted role of "Dyesebel" in the different Filipino movies? I'm sure, all of us were familiar with Disney's Ariel, their very own "Little Mermaid" creation!     

Since all of us were captivated by the charm of mermaids, many of us dream to have fins, tails, and swim like them. Even the actress like Anne Curtis who is now playing "Dyesebel" in ABS-CBN's hit Primetime fantaserye revealed that her greatest dream and role to play is a mermaid (sirena). Her dream was granted twice by her Kapamilya network first when she portrayed "Dyosa" in 2008 wherein one of her three characters was the mermaid Agua Dyosa and second this 2014 as she bagged the role of Mars Ravelo's one of his famous comic creations.  

But of course in reality, not all of us can be given a chance to play or swim like a mermaid! Therefore, Manila Ocean Park granted the dream of many to be like a well-love mermaid as they introduce their new attraction called "The Mermaid Swim Experience."

In the said event, guests will be given a chance to transform and swim like a mermaid. They will wear the mermaid's tail at the same time, they will be taught how to swim like a mermaid by the swimming instructors. Photo opts and pictorials were also part of the program. A hard copy of their best 4R photo will be given as souvenir after the event.    

Today, male mermaids or the so-called mermen were also a hit! Even the rockcoustic heartthrob Sam Milby as well as the other hunk actors like Jay Gonzaga and Markki Stroem joined the bandwagon playing the hot sirenos in "Dyesebel." Ops, sila lang ba ang pwede? Well, I joined them transforming myself into a merman and had my pictorial in the said establishment. Here are some of my photos: 





Being a merman is really a fun and hard experience at the same time specially to me who didn't know how to swim! But there's nothing to worry since the instructors in Manila Ocean Park were all kind and patient. They will teach you how to swim and act as a real mermaid. In my case, I'm so lucky that I had the instructor GK or Gibran Karl Alonzo as my swimming instructor. I will discuss more about him in my next posts. :) I will also share with you more of my merman photos! 

For more details about the Manila Ocean Park's Mermaid Swimming Experience, reservations, promos, schedules, and prices, you may visit their official website at www.manilaoceanpark.com. See you there! (RCB)

Quick Review: 'Maleficent'


Fairy Tales do exists in the modern world! Yes I admit, I am a fairy tale lover even though I was a kid! Therefore this newest fairy tale movie from Disney awakes the childhood in me!

"Maleficent" for me is a modern fairy tale movie. It combines the recipe of the traditional fairy tale story we used to love and the modern action twist which excites our hi-tech minds. 

The movie reminded us of the "Sleeping Beauty" wherein the princess (Aurora) was cursed by Maleficent to sleep forever when she reached the age of 16 after her finger was tuck by a needle. Only true love by a prince will awaken the princess! But in the movie, they put a twist in this traditional story!

Just like a well-love fairy tale, the movie teaches the viewers moral lessons. The story revolves around friendship, betrayal, revenge, forgiveness, and unity!

Once more, the lead star Angelie Jolie didn't failed the expectations of viewers. She created another remarkable role. Her character as Maleficent, a hero and a villain (bida-kontrabida) at the same time is truly awesome! Perfect performance by an actress! I even appreciate her action skills!

Once more, let's relive the movie with its full trailer:


 In a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the highest, 5/5 or 5 stars will be my rating for this film! Yeah, I really love this film adding to the collection of my best film of 2014 list! (RCB)

Quick Review: 'The Amazing Spider Man 2'


I am really an avid fan of the "Spiderman" movies specially when the Hollywood hunk heartthrob Andrew Garfield took the lead role! In 2012, I was amazed with the first sequel of the movie dubbed as "The Amazing Spider-Man" which also served as our reunion with my college 'ka-loveteam.'

Two years later, here we go again with another "Spiderman" movie. But this time with a new partner!  And this movie will be my first entry to my new segment here in my blog called "Quick Review."

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is more action-packed and more realistic than the first part. It is more action-packed in a way that they introduced two to three villains in the movie with different superpowers which put the life of Spiderman at risk! And yes, it is more realistic because the movie let the girlfriend of Spidey (played by Emma Stone) died. But of course she died with a worth, she sacrificed her life to save the only man she loves who is Peter Parker.        

The movie also puts in realization that even though you're a superhero, you are still human who get hurt and challenged by the usual human fate.

Here is the full trailer of the movie:



For me this movie tops my first list of best film for 2014 so far. No wonder why Spidey tops the highest-grossing film in the country for 2014!

My rating for the movie with the scale of 1-5 with 5 as the highest will be 5/5. Yes, a perfect score of 5 stars!

I can't wait and see its third part! (RCB)
