Rhian Ramos on first sex scene with Piolo Pascual: ‘Inalalayan niya talaga ako’
As part of this year’s Cinemalaya film festival closing film Silong, Rhian Ramos admitted she got to experience a lot of “firsts” doing the film. It is her first time to be partnered with Kapamilya actor Piolo Pascual and also her first time to do a bed scene onscreen. Rhian admitted it didn’t take much to convince her to accept the indie project. “They sent me the script and siguro two days later I said, ‘I want to do this movie!’ I enjoyed doing this movie. It was a lot of self-discovery and I guess it also made us friends and pretty close so that usually happens when you know we’ve been through a lot (laughs). Whenever I read script, my test for it is that if I can predict the ending then parang ayoko na lang but this one really surprised me and I’m not as smart as I thought I was (laughs),” she shared.

Pero tanggap ko naman na flavor of the month lang ako,” he said.

SOME years ago, then House Speaker Jose de Venecia regaled an audience of US Pinoys at the Philippine consulate in San Francisco with a portrait of a Philippines flying high on every conceivable front. During the open forum, I candidly commented that if it wasn’t because I could see who was delivering the talk, I could have sworn he was describing another country. I showed him several newspaper headlines that contradicted many of the rosy things he had reported.Full Article...

Sa mundo nang pagbubuhat ng bangko, mas kahanga hanga at mas pinagpapala ang kababaan ng loob at pagaangat ng kapwa. Bagay na ginawa at tinuro ng Panginoong Hesus. Pakinggan natin muli ang bagay na ito sa Bibliya sa Filipos 2:1-11 na sinabi ni San Pablo:Full Article...
