I see myself in my friend Penny Ngu because we both think we’re fat and hide behind loose clothes. She likes Marni, I like Comme des Garçons.
You will never see Penny carrying an It bag. Something about her quiet elegance I can relate to.
She owns many clothing stores, among them Madison at Rockwell, the Apple & Eve chain and a lot more.
I like that she prefers to be anonymous than out there. She has her bakya side that Ginggay and I tease her about. She’s a devoted mother of five.
Penny was really nervous about being chosen as one of Preview magazine’s Best Dressed this year.
She was BBMing me the whole time during her shoot.
“Who’s your photog?” I needed to know, first and foremost.
“You’re in good hands Penny. Don’t worry.”
I have never met Lilen Uy, but I remember names when it comes to good work.
Here’s Penny in her Preview shots. She kind of looks like a young Tina M.
To be honest, she will kill me for posting these.
Penny bought an issue of Preview when it came out but refused to open it. So I bought one at National Bookstore, ripped it open and checked for her. “OMG it looks amazing,” I called her.
Penny locked herself in the bathroom to look and was relieved to see the results.
I know she had a difficult time during the shoot as I always do.
Also in the issue is my personal bet, Keri Zamora, my cousin’s lovely wife who knows what she wants and gets it. She doesn’t follow trends, only her own, and always wears the best shoes.
I personally love her hair. She has so much of it.
We love Keri because she’s so unpretentious and unassuming. A devoted mother of three, I also see myself in her. And yes she has bakya moments too, which I love.
Grace and I are trying to educate her in our colorful language of jogkanovitch, muralla, duty free, dakota fanning and all that and we love it when Keri gets it.
Also worth noting in this year’s best dressed are Anne Gonzalez of Havaianas who is simply pretty, full stop.
and fashion blogger Camille Co.
Last but not least is my other kamag-anak, Lucille Dizon, whose photos I wasn’t able to scan but appears in my cousin Candy’s blog right here.
Preview’s Best Dressed 2011 issue with Iza Calzado on the cover is out in magazine stands now.
Odie and his best friend Irene are two outsiders who find a second home in the Philippine underground music scene.
The two decide to form a band and put together an unlikely crew that consists of the school bully, an ex-punk-turned-barista, and a former childstar-turned-band manager.
The film follows their misadventures as they face satanic S&M bands, samurai swindlers, narcissistic rockstars, the pretentious Philippine art community and the freakiest music video auteur ever.
Co-written by Diego Castillo, the guitarist of one of the Philippines’ biggest rock bands SANDWICH, and directed by multi-awarded music video director Quark Henares, Rakenrol is a heartfelt ode to the underground scene both filmmakers spent their formative years in.
Stars Jason Abalos, Glaiza de Castro, Alwyn Uytingco, Ketchup Eusebio, Diether Ocampo, Matet de Leon, Ramon Bautista, and Jun Sabayton.
I’m excited for Quark Henares’ Rakenrol.
Rakenrol is now CINEMALAYA’s closing film on July 23, 2011.

It’s hard to review a movie that didn’t need to be remade. Instead money could’ve been spent wiser remastering the original.
It’s a lose-lose situation because if you have seen the original, you are bound to compare.
If you haven’t seen the original, there’s a good chance you might not get the storyline.
The movie starts out amusing enough, where four ladies decide to join the Manila Sunshine supermodel search for various reasons, besides the money, the car, and the house and lot.
There’s a fun runway show for the semifinals. I love this very gay portion where the girls show off their modeling skills.
The finalists end up in a yacht party, where an accidental fire causes a shipwreck.
Sadly the fire scene is still low-tech for the times (not campy at all).
The girls get washed up a deserted island with a bunch of himbos (male bimbos).
As for the main cast, Lovi Poe’s lack of acting skills becomes evident from the movie’s start. Here’s a pretty girl in dire need of Lee Strasberg, with her breathy, Marilyn Monroe whispers that just don’t work.
The island is where Rufa Mae shines as Lovi’s maid servant. The movie is clearly hers and she owns it.
For a newcomer, Solenn Heussaff is not bad at all (I smell a new gay icon)
Heart Evangelista, may have wooden dancing skills, but she is too pretty for words. For that alone, she deserves to be on the big screen.
Marian Rivera is deliciously camp especially with her dance moves, it’s entertaining
Too bad, all the boys in the movie had wooden acting skills. Clearly, there are no Alfie Anidos here.
John Lapuz is a gifted actor. I was just really bothered how they made him look exactly like media personality Queen Melo, complete with pearl earrings.
Queen Melo was in the audience last night with a good-looking escort.
So we heard from one of the actors in the movie, that they got the blessing of Queen Melo to copy his look for the movie.
Though the movie has its genuine LOL moments, sadly, there were many dull scenes.
The remake tries to copy too much from the original. Since they were remaking, they should’ve done some updating.
They could’ve realized that spreading fliers by helicopter is no longer relevant to the Internet times, and that only nurses and SM sales persons wear stockings in this day and age.
Wish they had a bigger budget to hire male actors who can act.
Finally, the movie just falls in the end with an anticlimactic fashion show that leaves a very bad memory.
Had they hired good stylists and designers for that last scene, I would’ve given it 3 stars.
As it is, I’m giving it 2/5 stars—happy I watched it, but won’t be asking you to drop everything and see it.
In a couple of years, this too will end up on Cinema One.
Enjoy the trailer.
