How Sosro Guava Tea Fruit save my day.

Two days before the much awaited Blogapalooza, my tummy hurt, indeed LBM or Diarrhea takes place and it really pain me every time CR calls, I think I ate something which I can’t recall that trigger the revolution in my stomach.  I take some loperamide medicine but the fuss still continue, somehow it improve on the second day, Yet LBM still there every after meal.

I am giving myself until third day, if it still continues I will definitely visit a doctor, but that third day is Blogapalooza, my one most anticipated event as Blogger here in Manila, so I declare to myself that I go to the events first and next is the Doctor.

So I went booth to booth at this year’s Blogapalooza, I try avoiding eating due to the violent reaction my tummy makes at One Esplanade, until I pass to this most busiest booth at the event, the Fruit Tea by Sosro, I did sign up and get my free bottle, when the usher ask me what flavor I want, I choose Guava, coz I remember way back in my province my mom always boiled guava leaves every time we complain about our tummy, the hot extract from guava leaves gives relief to trouble stomachs and that’s how I grow up knowing the wonder of this fruit, not just the fruits but its leaves as well.

So the party continue, meet some old time bloggers friends, share stories, exchange numbers and I almost forgot eating some food that was free at the event hall, from lechon to leche flan, and to cookies and biscuits, I admit I forgot my issue with my tummy, and that Guava Tea serves my refreshment since I got two bottles of it.

And hola to my surprise, the angry tummy of mine is now in serenity, yes that whole day become fun to me not worrying to look for some private rooms, I know in myself every time I sip its juice, something amazing happen inside, even when we transfer to another event that night I literally enjoy my dinner, and I’m confident this guava tea of Sosro does the miracle. That’s why before leaving One Esplanade I have to get more of this Guava Tea, and luckily I was able to grab some.

Until the next day, everything is normal deep inside my tummy, and that’s for me a good relief that’s makes me relax and chill, it really save me from going to the Doctor and buying some medicines.

Fruit Tea is manufactured by Sosro, an Indonesian number one tea drink maker, they also have Strawberry, Apple and Freeze flavors to choose from. But of course I will recommend the Guava flavor, for me it’s a unique one that blending with tea is a perfect match. It is available now in chill at SM Hypermarket, Landmark, Sta.Lucia Grocery, Tropical, Hi-Top Supermarket, Walter Mart, Pioneer Center, and other leading supermarkets. For more information visit http://reddimart.ph or follow Sostro Fruit Tea on facebook .  It is being distributed in the Philippines by Reddimart Multi-Resources Inc.

We make sure everything is monitored at par at quality the way we want it to be, that’s why we don’t do many projects at the same time.

Q: Why in Paranaque City?
DL: First is quite close to the airport, the proximity of Paranaque to Makati, to the business district, to the Taguig, to the BGC, and kahit malapit sa business district pero parang outskirts sya. Nung in-introduce sa amin yung lot na to, unang tingin pa lang naming special sya, kasi nasa loob sya ng isang subdivision, the Betterliving subdivision. We are giving our home buyer a suburban living experience, its like living in a subdivision, na pag nandito sila ay tahimik na tahimik , lalo na pag Saturday and Sunday tahimik dito. Homey feeling, rather than beside the highway na accessible sya pero parang nasa office ka. What we are selling talaga is for family dwelling ang target, that’s why choose this place.

Audire, dare to listen what you hear.

Angelina Kanapi on her own.
 We rarely heard or seen a one woman act show now a days, and if there is one, it should be something interesting and actors must be really good at it. Artist Playground on its 3rd production is back with “Audire”, starring veteran stage Actress Angelina Kanapi, it’s under the direction of Jeffrey Camanag.

It is an experimental performance that showcases the process of artistic creations, inventions and discoveries, images and sounds are biggest part of it since the artist interact with it through her soul and conveyed its messages to the audience.

At first I thought there is no story at all, Kanapi acting comes natural along with his changing mode of artistically acting in one scene in a sort trash room, through those things scattered she narrate one by one her story of childhood, as a mother and the struggles of growing up. One notable Kanapi good to this play is her humor, yes she can make you laugh.
It is not a typical play I must say, not even a testimonial to called for, but it is refreshing to have watched such this to enlighten your artistic world and understand where it coming from.

“Audire” or Listen Carefully playdates are Oct 17, 24 and 31, and November 7, at 3 in the afternoon and 7 in the evening, venue is at 1701 The Little Room Upstairs, Lansdale Tower, Mother Ignacia Ave in Quezon City.  Actor/Director Roeder Camanag heads the Artististic Team along with Rojean Regoso as the production manager, Rein Martin Ramos for the Technical and Lights Designs, and Shiela Espina for the sound.
With Roeder, Angelina and Jeffrey.

Keep the flame burning: Mga Buhay na Apoy Theater Review.


Kanakan's "Mga Buhay na Apoy" deserve its award in the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards. A literary masterpiece, every line delivered by the actors is a portal to the world that is simply Kanakan. Just by simply listening to the lines delivered while masterfully accompanied by the music of Diwa De Leon, it's like you are being transported i. the mystical world of Palaw'an. The text was very rich and colorful. As the director, his vision was made even better by the wonderful performance of the ensemble and the grade A execution of the technical and production staff.

I suggest however that you don't close your eyes, for the set design itself is a marvel to look at. The giant tree in the middle of the stage is like a gateway waiting to be opened. The luncheon table was set with different chairs, each chairs we're like a representation of each of the characters. You get the festive mood the set is trying to send off, which is a good contrast to the dark secrets the play holds. The staircase provides a good balance, hearing that the set is based on real life, makes you realize just how interesting the playwright might be in real life. 
The lighting design of Dennis Marasigan in this play was awesome. Initially, there we're moments were you would feel that a little more push on the lights console would push it even further and make the narration even better, but as the play progress you would realize the lights were perfect, just enough to highlight the actors during their moments in the performance. The area lighting of Marasigan proved to be an invaluable tool to forward the vision of Kanakan.
Irma was wonderful, it would be no surprise if she would get some awards or recognition for her performance. Her landmark scene came late in the middle of the second act. During the moment where she was in a trance. She was ably supported by the ensemble during this scene. You could see, hear and feel the beautiful nightmare that was unfolding before your eyes.


However the performance was quite lengthy. The 1st act, though it was important to lay down the history of the characters, feels like it could still be made tighter. Though I would understand if the writer would not edit the scenes to make it faster, but if the production would like it to be more appealing to the younger generation (which i believe it should, for the cultural value of the presentation would make every filipino, not just the Palaw'ans, proud of their cultural identity).
In closing the message of the performance that all of us are caretakers of our culture, that all of us should do our part in preserving our heritage and history is important. That our past should be accepted even if it is very painful. For it is only in moving away from the shadows of our past and accepting our truths will we be able to shine the light that we all hold.


We should all watch the performance. Kanakan's Mga Buhay na Apoy is what this generations needs. Reminding all of us that we have that living flame in our hearts and soul. That we should keep it burning, that we should cultivate that fire and make it grow, let it engulf us and show the world how bright we all could be.
The Cast of Mga Buhay Na Apoy.

Chuva Choo Choo, The Mr.Kupido Musicale, will make you sing and laugh at heart..

Dina and Darla.
The newest Original Filipino Musical Play is born, the Chuva Choo Choo, the Mr.Kupido Musicale featuring the songs of Vehnee Saturno will make you sing a long after watching, plus the laughter at your hearts is a roar amidst all your problems. This play will make you realize that Saturno’s contribution to Original Pilipino Music is really a legend, a name that many generations of Pinoys grow up singing all his hits.

Chuva Choo Choo start with the story of two sisters and plus one friend whom they consider a family as well, they are used to join singing contest and ended up losers, until they witness a crime wherein they have to go somewhere and hide, but fate has another plan for them and fame is just a foot away. A love story, a gay bar turn comedy bar is the instrument for the sisters to achieve their dreams. 

International musical theater actress Joanna Ampil play Dina while The Voice Philippines finalist Morisette Amon play Darla, the singing prowess of this two ladies is in no question, they both give it with flying colors, but it was surprising to see Amon doing comedy act on which she really nailed it with good timing, especially her scene with Zandro, her love interest in the story that gives a light kilig to the audiences.

But I must say that Via Antonio doing multiple roles is such a hit, her delivery is really a joy on stage, she almost have six different roles in this play with all the changing costumes needed as well. Edward Benosa as Zandro is an eye candy, his cuteness on stage is a plus factor for this play.


The songs like Sana Kahit Minsan, Bakit Pa, Forever Is Not Enough and others really make you go to Videoke and birit one more time after watching it, of course if those songs have meanings or value to your childhood or ex-flings is another story to tell.

Dina & Zandro, Darla and Tonton.
Produce by Stages Production Specialist Inc of Alvin Trono, Chuva Choo Choo is under the direction of Seven time Palanca awardee George De Jesus.  Also in the cast are Jojo Riguerra, Ross Pesigan, Juliene Mendoza, Ron Alfonso, and Jay Marquez.
