Eat Bulaga franchise goes to Indonesia

Filipinos love to follow franchised TV shows and series—anywhere from American game shows and reality shows, to Korean or Mexican telenovelas.
Now for the first time ever, another country is franchising a local TV show.
Eat Bulaga, the longest-running variety show in the Philippines will premiere in Indonesia this July 16, 2012 over Surya Citra Televisi or SCTV.
It will be hosted by a cast of 14, including: Uya Kuya, Aja Farid, Reza No, Ramzi, Narji, Ciripa, Rian Ibram, Rio Indrawan, Steven, Leo Consul, Selena Alexandria, Jenny Tan, Bianca Lizza and Julie Christie.

“We want this program to be a success like in the Philippines, where it has been running for the past 33 years,” said Harsiwi Achmad, Director of Programs and Production at Studio Penta SCTV.
“We’re not adapting 100% of the Philippines’ Eat Bulaga but will format in accordance with the state and introduce positive values, ​​environmental campaigns, and sharing with others,” said Harsiwi.
The variety show will be packed with talent searches and games that will give away prizes and surprises in cash and in goods.
Content will include segments like Bolagaan, Karaoke Stud, Indonesia Genius, and One For All, All For One.
Translated, the title Eat Bulaga is derived from a game of peekaboo. The show can be followed by all ages.

A very sneaky peek at Kusama x Louis Vuitton’s 2nd collection

I feel tense whenever they mention “second collection” before Mass ends. Same with Yayoi Kusama’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton. While the first collection launched last July 10, it’s confirmed that a second collection will come out in October.
That means some of us have/had to decide whether to buy from this collection or the next. Like Mich Dulce who was frantically BBMing me from the Greenbelt 4 store last Saturday. She couldn’t decide whether to buy any of these bags or wait till October.

Mich

Well, Mich, after some intense Googling I found some pics and footage which give us an idea of what’s in store for Yayoi Kusama x Louis Vuitton fans this October.
During its launch in the New York flagship store last Tuesday, Yayoi Kusama had this very stylish black and white Papillon

These were grabbed from Louis Vuitton’s YouTube channel: the Papillon in black and white

and red and black

Plus a green Keepall

These grabs came from July 2012 Elle, don’t know which country though. There’s the Keepall in red

And a Speedy in blue with the monogram in the background

Here’s a very blurred grab of a Neverfull

And that’s all I have for now. What do you think?

Dolphy memories, Part 1: the movies

My earliest memory of Dolphy was watching his black and white movies as a child. I remember seeing Ibong Adarna at my Tita Noly’s house in San Juan with my playmate Lia.
I remember Dolphy as Prinsipe Abante squeezing calamansi onto a self-inflicted wound to keep awake, as falling asleep would turn him into a statue of salt (or something). I loved it so much, I’m so glad I was able to buy a rare DVD, which I still have somewhere in this house.

For me, one of the best Dolphy movies is Dobol Trobol, where he played a Siamese twin of his real-life brother, Georgie Quizon. They marry the Wing Duo (a.k.a. Nikki Ross and Angela Yoingco).
I was a child then but I still remember the awkwardness of their wedding night.

I just recently rediscovered Beatnik, which someone has uploaded on YouTube. I wish somebody had thought of properly archiving our Tagalog movies from years back as they are really precious.
I love the fashion and dancing in this hilarious movie.

BEATNIK-60-2-sf

Wish I could see John en Marsha sa Amerika, where John wins a trip to US via a game show. Saw this during my formative years.

75JOHNMARSHA SA AMERIKA

Also memorable to me is Ang Nanay Kong Tatay, where Doplhy plays a beauty parlor gay who ends up taking care of an orphan (Niño Muhlach). Wish they would have a Dolphy movie marathon for a week on TV, for Dolphy was truly a gem. There will be nobody like him again in Philippine cinema.

All movie ads/scans were lifted from Video 48, a blog that seriously deserves an award for consistently posting on Philippine cinema since 2007.
What’s your favorite Dolphy movie?

Anna Carmela Kho

Last July 8, I wrote this entry to ask donations for Anna Carmela “Chikki” Kho who was battling leukemia.
Chikki died yesterday morning following complications from pneumonia.

Anna and Liam

Her remains will lie at Room 211 of the Sanctuarium, Quezon Avenue corner Araneta Avenue until Friday night. Interment will be on the early morning of Saturday.
Her friends will continue to push through with their garage sale to pay for the family’s expenses, and to benefit especially her two-year-old son, Liam.
Please read the flier to see how you can help.

Kusama Day

I can’t even remember the last time I bought a Louis Vuitton bag or wanted one. The prices just keep going higher. The stuff wasn’t exciting. The last thing I got was a wallet. I still think Louis Vuitton makes the best wallets.
Now this Kusama thing I was into. When I first saw the lookbook I was kind of disappointed because I found the styling so kenkoy. Nevertheless I was still interested in Vuitton’s latest collab with Japanese pop artist Yayoi Kusama.

I was lucky to be invited to be among the first to see the collection at Greenbelt 4. I came in around 11:30 and found the VIP room so wonderfully arranged.

And food by Lusso—for me???

I was kind of embarrassed. The food looked too pretty to eat.

I took two of the salmon sandwiches and ate them quickly as I had some business to do.
I took the red polka-dotted Vernis Lockit bag and tried it on

I checked the store’s iPad to see what’s available

I even compared the Louis Vuitton wallet to my Comme des Garçons wallet (LV wins!)

I left and had lunch with my girlfriends at People’s Palace. Then I texted my benefactor who gave me the go signal.
I went back to the store and made a decision: this one.

I chose it because of its size and weight (not as heavy as vernis). It has an optional shoulder strap.
I transferred my things and used it right away.
I kind of feel so guilty having it, just like the food they served me. I’m not worthy.
I thought about some people who regretted not getting a Sprouse bag from the first collection or a Richard Prince when it was available. Yayoi Kusama is 89 years old. I don’t think I’ll be able to afford her art ever, but I have this bag and it’s here and it’s mine.
