R.I.P. sale: Häagen-Dazs

Some goodbyes are really sad.
Maybe Häagen-Dazs wants to soften the blow of their impending exit from the Philippines by going on sale.
I wish I had a chest freezer to keep all the ice cream I want to buy.
How sad and happy is this? Happy they’re on sale, and sad for my diet.
Here’s where you can buy Häagen-Dazs ice cream at 50% off till supplies last.



What happened to Ben?

My son’s homework today: Tell the class where your parents got your name.
My eldest son Benjamin was named after Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot, lead singer of ’80s British pop band, Curiosity Killed the Cat. To show my son what this guy looks like, we went to Google and found these:

Ben Volpeliere Pierrot

Ben says, “Mommy is he bald?” Probably. He was adorable.

This was Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot in 1987

The hat kind of reminds me of the late John F. Kennedy Jr. *sniff*


One thing I wish they had taught us in high school is how the body works when we get older.
Wish they had told us about moisturizing, metabolism, dieting, working out, and growing old.
I was really shocked to see a more recent photo of Ben Volpelierre-Pierrot.
Only two years older than me. I wish it weren’t true.
Mood: Sad :(

EDIT: Somebody has better Googling skills than me. Apparently this is the correct Ben Volepierre-Pierrot!! Thank God!!
As Grace and I would say, I would still tap that ass!


Oi! Someone bring them to Manila please!!

Meet Gabby Abshire

This would make a great reality show—if only they would stay in the Philippines.
Gabby Abshire is a 10-year-old American boy from Milwaukee, who moved to the Philippines at age four when his father, Jack, decided to marry a Filipina named Jing from Angono, Rizal.

Jack and Jing met through a mutual friend one year after Gabby’s mother died from an illness.
It was stepmother Jing who home-schooled Gabby and taught him the basics in Tagalog before the boy learned to speak fluently through his playmates.

A big fan of Eat Bulaga‘s Vic Sotto, Gabby tweeted with comedian Allan K, who finally invited him to go on the show.
Last May 11, 2012, Gabby got to meet “Bossing” Vic Sotto.
Since then, the boy has been tapped as a semi-regular on Eat Bulaga before his family packs up and moves to Thailand.

Jessica Soho tells us more about the boy.

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.
