The notes we have on Manila Notes.

Manila notes is a Filipino adaptation of Tokyo notes written by A Japanese playwright and director Oriza Hirata. It was adapted by our very own Rudy Vera and was directed by Tokyo notes writer himself.

The story happened in the future, around 2043. There’s a war happening in Europe and in order to protect and preserved the collection of Vermeer, the paintings was relocated to several countries in Asia. Inside the receiving area or lobby of the museum, family members, lovers, friend and other kind of relation meet to discuss life, mainly about taking care of parents, family / marital problems, inheritance business and plans in life. The play depicts the regular day to day living of Filipinos. The stage really shows a modern design of a museum lobby, the coach are color blue, yellow, and red that looks like a Philippine flag color to me. It is also adorned with hanging capiz shells, which made me feel that I am really in manila, I remember the old houses in manila has a lot of capiz wind…

Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) along with the Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM), in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) present "Manila Notes", as part of TP 32nd season production from November 30 to December 16, 2018, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, at 3PM and 8PM, at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater).

What's inside the Dressing Room?

The 43rd Season of Dulaang UP definitely has a great line up of Plays. For their second offering , Dulaang UP chose to stage a play about the theater, a 1997 Japanese play called "The Dressing Room" by Shimizu Kunio.
As DUP usually does, they would be staging in parallel both an English and a Filipino version of this play. The English version was written by Chiori Miyagawa, as adapted from the original English translation by John Gillespie. The Filipino translation is by multiple Palanca award-winning playwright Nicolas Pichay.
Always making sure that they push limits, Dulaang UP also pushes the envelope further by innovating on the casting as well. The original play involved four actresses playing the four actress characters. The English version will stay faithful to this casting. To put a twist in Filipino version, however, the four actress characters will all be played by male actors. I believe this is a great way to kind of put things into perspective.

Talking About Home Loans

Knowing which home loan to choose is not always easy. Homebuyers who research various types of loans likely know of loans that may suit their need. Because there are many loan options, it may be useful to work with a mortgage broker.
Some homebuyers choose to obtain financing from a credit union, bank or mortgage company. However, these lenders provide traditional financing, and rarely offer loans for people with credit problems.

Comparing home loans is an important step that should not be overlooked. With this said, brokers provide a valuable service that saves time. Online mortgage brokers will locate at least three suitable loans. Brokers email loan offers to the homebuyer. Upon receipt of the offers, buyers must make a side-by-side comparison and pick the best loan offer and some also tries to help you avoidbad credit loans in Tampa.
Types of Home Loans Available
Fortunately, there is a multitude of home loans available. Thus, it is possible for practically anyone to obtain a mor…

On Choosing Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal injury attorney advertising is rising rapidly. Every time you turn on your TV or radio there are more personal injury attorney advertisements. Ironically, most personal injury attorneys and, in my opinion, most of the better personal injury attorneys, did not want to advertise and resisted for a long time.

The Natural Way to Feel More Empowered As a Woman

Gone are the days when the "male chauvinist" society had women as far inferior as men—very dependent and submissive to whatever the latter commanded. Women today are not just regarded as homemakers, but nation-builders as well. Beyond the confines of their houses, they, too, can make a big difference––be it in the economic, social or political arena.

From being a household queen to boardroom’s rockstar, women run on very hectic and active schedules everyday. So imagine the strength they have to withstand the daily grinds, not to mention the stress and pressure they have to endure just to fulfill the duties bestowed upon them.

Nevertheless, they’re no “Wonder Woman” at all, nor our very own heroine “Darna” so as not to feel exhausted and tired from chores or work. They’re also humans, who need to pause for a break from being the jack-of-all-trades.

It’s time to celebrate women empowerment and influence with the gift of beauty and wellness that they truly deserve. What a bet…

Travel and Scenic Photography

When you are driving through the mountains somewhere, & you notice a automobile parked half off the road & some guy leaning to the left to avoid a branch with his Rebel 2000 camera in the act of focusing, you have met me. I do this because, to me, a trip isn't fulfilling unless i have preserved that beauty for posterity. I'd like to share a quantity of the techniques that make scenic photography such a wonderful artform - simple, yet elegant.
First off, equipment. As much as the cheap disposable camera beckons, get real. These cameras have fisheye lenses which I call "spam" lenses. we cram everything in, with equal blurriness & boringness. nice photos are sharp, unless you use blur for artistic effect. Sharp comes from an adjustable lens. It can be a fixed lens or a zoom, but it must focus specially for each picture. Fixed lenses are limiting for scenic pics, where to frame the shot you may require to move long distances. Imagine using a fixed lens on t…

Ang Pag-Uusig the return in CCP.

The award winning classic play of Tanghalang Pilipino is making a comeback this October at Tanghalang Huseng Batute of the Cultural Center of Philippines, this is the American classic and politically relevant “Ang Pag-Uusig” or The Crucible by Tony Award winning playwright Arthur Miller. Along with Actors Company, this year’s rerun proves a lot in terms of acting performances, most its original cast are now doing dual roles, it’s a challenge for many of its actors specially on memorization part, this play had a kilo-metric lines. Compare to 30 rehearsals before, this revival only had 12 practice to perfect it. I’ve never seen the first run in 2017, but this one really blow me away, it is intense and more eye connection to its characters, blocking in one stage format is surely admired same in the previous shows, script analysis is also use in this production to help all the actors give their best. One notable change this time is the adaption of Filipino dress or Barong in the Act 2 of the…
