From The Media/ StarStruck Breakdown/ Coke Ko 'To
This phrase is very useful to make a lot of excuses here in the Philippines.
If you got caught by a traffic enforcer while driving at the opposite lane, just show your media ID and say, "I'm from the media and I'm rushing to get a scoop about a fire nearby." Even though you are actually late for your dinner date.
Wanting to cut the line to have your documents xeroxed? Just tell the photocopier operator, "I'm from the media and I need to have these documents xerox because it's an emergency."
Call it power of the press, call it press abuse, but it works (most of the time).
The Breakdown Of Iwa Moto
StarStruck will announce the Final 4 this Sunday, but what is this I'm seeing? Yesterday, female front-runner Iwa Moto let out a barrage of hate against her fellow competitors and even said a lot of jaw-dropping quotes like "I will quit from StarStruck," "You're all a bunch of plastics," "I might do something bad against them," and "I am too beautiful for them to beat." I think this move could jeopardize her ten-million-peso dream.
If Iwa will not make it to Final 4, I won't be surprised.
The Coke Ko 'To Game
This is one of the most popular advertisements the Philippines has created. It didn't win any ad award as far as I know, but it did create a cult following two years ago. The two girls are playing patty-cake using the slogan "It's My Coke."
It took me several attempts to have finally perfected the gestures, but watching it now, my hands are fumbling again.
THE EMPRESS FOOTNOTES
1) Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on my previous post about the People Power Revolution. We may have different opinions about it, what we agree on is that this non-violent government overthrow was a highlight of Philippine history.
2) Just arrived from shooting our pilot episode of Kids TV for ABC-5 at Manila Baywalk. It was hot and sunny, I had to pour on cold water to heal my burnt skin.
3) JUST ASKING: What do you like best about my blog?
