‘RE-DISCOVERY’ – Yassi Pressman was discovered a few years back and appeared in shows on several channels, including the remake of “Tasia Fantasia” on TV5. But truth to tell she didn’t make waves.

Ah, but 2017 is an altogether different story. It may well be called her “re-discovery” year – thanks to “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” on ABS-CBN, where she plays the wife of Coco Martin. All of a sudden, in a manner of speaking, televiewers realized what a fine actress she is. And how beautiful Yassi is.

She was included on the Sunday noontime show “ASAP,” where she sings and dances as well.

Now Yassi Pressman is Viva’s hottest star. And Boss Vic (del Rosario) has big plans for her this year and next.

Yassi is truly the “re-discovery of the year.”

REGAL IN BLUE – Yassi was recently introduced to media as the first Filipina endorser of Nivea Deo.

Fresh from ASAP, Yassi came regal in blue, flattered no end that she was chosen endorser of the beauty product, an international brand. She said that even as a young girl she was already familiar with Nivea.

“I can’t believe I’m endorsing Nivea, the first Filipina to do so,” she enthused.

WHY YASSI? – Yes, why Yassi Pressman? Why not this and that actress?

The lady executives of Nivea explained that Yassi’s perfect for the beauty product as they were looking for one who’s confident, smart, amiable. Also one who looks forward to a good and fruitful life.

And Yassi certainly fits the bill.

Watch Yassi Pressman’s star to shine brighter and brighter.

ISA uling magandang episode ang ginawa ng award-winning director na si Brillante Mendoza, na hindi lang magbabahagi ng naiibang love story kundi nagpapakita rin ng mga festival na ginagawa sa bawat bayang itinatampok niya.

DIREK BRILLANTE copy

This time, ang Kadaugan Sa Mactan Festival sa Cebu naman ang mapapanood na backdrop ng istorya. Ngayon nga lang namin nalaman na mayroon palang ganitong festival sa Queen City of the South, na ipinagdiriwang nila ang labanan nina Magellan at Lapu-Lapu. Millenial na ang presentation.

Sa presscon, natanong si Direk Brillante kung paano niya ginawa ang love story nina Tere (Dionne Monsanto) at Johann (Daniel Marsh ng Juan Directions), at kung talaga bang may kababaihan pa rin na nagmamahal hindi dahil sa love talaga kundi para makatakas sa kahirapan? Inamin ni Direk Brillante na may creative group siya at pool of writers na siyang nag-iinterview ng mga mamamayan sa lugar na gagawan nila ng istorya.

Kaya ang writer ng Kadaugan na si Eero Francisco ang pinagsagot niya, dahil ito ang nag-interview ng maraming kababaihan doon at nalaman niya ang maraming ganoong kaso — na nagmahal sa foreigner upang matakasan ang hikahos na kalagayan sa buhay.

Hindi naman nila kinalimutang ipakita ang pagkakabigkis ng pamilya ng mga Cebuano at kung paano sila tumanggap ng mga bisita. Ipinakita rin sa istorya na nagmahal at totoong na-in love si Tere kay Johann, pero dumating din ang panahon na iniwan siya nito. Muli siyang nagmahal sa isa pang foreigner, nabuntis , pero nag-iwan lamang ng dollars para sa magiging baby nila.

Muli bang magmamahal si Tere? Ang kasagutan ay magandang abangan sa Kadaugan na nagtampok din sa ipinagmamalaking Cebuana actresses — ang mag-inang sina Ms. Gloria Seveilla at Suzette Ranillo kasama sina Matt Daclan, Albert Chan Paran, at Keanna Reeves.

Nagpasalamat si Direk Brillante sa TV5 na patuloy siyang sinusuportahan para maipalabas ang kanyang Brillante Mendoza Presents na naghahatid ng differentiated entertainment. Walang pressure ang network sa kanya at hinahayaan siyang gawin ang episodes na ipinalalabas every month. Mapapanood ang Kadaugan sa July 30, pagkatapos ng Turning Point sa TV5.

Samantala, birthday ni Direk Brillante sa July 30 kaya after the presscon, hinandugan siya ng birthday cake at cupcakes na ipinamigay sa mga nag-attend ng presscon, bago isinagawa ang press preview ng Kadaugan na umani ng magagandang comments pagkatapos dahil happy ending.

Si Direk Brillante ang muling magdidirek ng SONA 2017 sa Lunes, Hulyo 24. Kaya tinanong din siya kung may pasabog ba siyang gagawin. Wala raw dahil ang focus niya ay kung ano ang speech ni Presidente Duterte. Wala pa raw siyang copy ng speech at hindi niya alam kung may nakahanda ngang gagamitin ng Pangulo o extemporeaneous ang magiging speech nito

SI Solenn Heussaff ang isang artista na walang inuurungan. Kahit saan mo siya isabak, susulong nsiya, wala siyang tinatanggihan mapa-singing, dancing, acting, hosting at painting. Kinakaya niyang lahat ito. 

Solenn Heussaf ARH (1) copy

Isa nang halimbawa noong kunin siya ng Encantadia para gumanap bilang ang diwatang si Cassiopea na iba ang wikang gagamitin. Hindi dahil hindi maiintindihan iyon ng mga manonood, inaral niya kung paano bigkasin nang tama ang mga salita.

Nang kunin din siya for a pictorial na sumasayaw under the sea, hindi siya tumanggi, sa halip ay in-enjoy niya ang photo shoot. 

Sa October naman, may inihahanda siyang painting exhibit ng mga taong nami-meet niya na nagbigay sa kanya ng inspiration sa October, 2017. Pumupunta siya kung saan-saan at nakikipagkilala sa iba’t ibang uri ng tao. May painting siya ng isang scenario sa Marawi City. Noong una, gusto niyang matiyak kung ganoon na nga ang nangyayari habang may nagaganap na digmaan doon, walang makain ang mga tao at nanghihingi na lamang ng limos para may makain. 

Kaya nang magkaroon siya ng pagkakataon na pumunta sa Marawi, dala ang kanyang mga gamit sa pagpipinta, at napaiyak nang personal nang masaksihan ang napapabalita lamang na mga nangyayari roon.

Samantala, pinaghahandaan na ni Solenn ang taping ng action scenes sa Alyas Robin Hood 2 as leading lady ni Dingdong Dantes kasama si Andrea Torres. Sila naman ang maglalaban hindi lang sa action scenes kundi sa paseksihan din.

May bago ring project si Solenn sa GMA-7, ang hosting sa All Star Videoke na all-original musical game show kasama si Betong Sumaya. Patuloy pa rin siya sa pagho-host ng Taste Buddies sa GMA News TV with Rhian Ramos at 8:45 PM every Saturday.

In their own way, kids from the south might be doing something that could lead to lasting peace which the people there have longed to attain.

Globe launches TM Sports Para sa Bayan together with Malaysia’s Astro via its subsidiary Tribe. In photo from left to right: Iskandar Samad, Tribe CEO; Joenard Erojo, shortlisted football program candidate; Maui Rabuco, Brand Manager for TM; Princess Lovely Magbago, shortlisted candidate; Deeg Rodriguez, Assistant Manager of Green Archers United; Rofil Magto; Manager, Globe Citizenship; and Cesar De Torres Jr., shortlisted candidate.

Globe launches TM Sports Para sa Bayan together with Malaysia’s Astro via its subsidiary Tribe. In photo from left to right: Iskandar Samad, Tribe CEO; Joenard Erojo, shortlisted football program candidate; Maui Rabuco, Brand Manager for TM; Princess Lovely Magbago, shortlisted candidate; Deeg Rodriguez, Assistant Manager of Green Archers United; Rofil Magto; Manager, Globe Citizenship; and Cesar De Torres Jr., shortlisted candidate.

Now on its third year, “TM Football para sa Bayan” has been to many parts of the country, particularly in strife-torn areas in Mindanao.

Apart from its achievement of enticing kids to play and learn the sport, football has also proven to be an effective way in making politics and ideologies among warrying factions almost automatically take a backseat.

“Our program is not exclusive for poverty-stricken and talented kids. In fact, we learned from our partners that rebels in Mindanao have encouraged their kids to join our program and we have gladly accepted them,” said Globe citizenship manager Rofil Sheldon Magto.

Despite the prevailing situation, especially in Marawi, Magto assured the safety and security of participants and officials as they aim to spread the ‘beautiful game.’

“I am from Cagayan de Oro and I know, despite the conflict going on in one area, there is no chaos in the entire region. Still, we are partnering with the Philippine Marines who are actually eager to help this program as they themselves encourage their kids and children of rebels as well to join and play football,” said Magto.

During a press launching, chief corporate backer Globe announced the partnership with leading content and consumer company in Southeast Asia, Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad (Astro) and its regional over-the-top (OTT) streaming service Tribe for the second straight year.

The tie-up will again allow talented Filipino kids to get a chance to undergo the Astro Kem Bola Advanced Training Program in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and, potentially, the Overseas Training Camp in Barcelona, Spain by coaches from FC Barcelona Football Academy (FCBEscola) later this year.

NAKIPAGSAGUTAN si Jenine Desiderio sa supporters ng anak na si Janella Salvador dahil sa paraan ng pagdidisiplina niya sa anak. May time si Jenine na sagutin ang supporters ng anak na in fairness, on point ang punto pero sana hindi na niya idinaan sa Twitter ang problema niya sa anak.

Mas makabubuti sana kung kinausap na lang nang harapan, tutal magkasama naman sila sa bahay.

JENINE AT JANELLA copy

Ang nangyari, nalaman tuloy ng netizens ang problema niya kay Janella at tama ang mga nag-comment na between her and Janella, ang huli ang mas masisira. Aakalain ng mga nakabasa ng series of tweets niya na matigas ang ulo ng young actress.

Nagsimula ang “Twitter-serye” nang mag-post si Jenine ng, “Napakahirap bang magpaalam? 2 simple basic rules hindi masunod. Kase ayaw sumunod.” Sinundan ito ng, “Being protective is instinctive with any mother. But if all your good intentions & protective efforts are prevented…” May hashtag pa si Jenine na #nuknukanngtigasngulo #angtigasngloob.
Sa tweets niyang “You’re on your own #gettingtoobigforyourskin” at “Fed up #paulitulit.”

Kahit walang binanggit na pangalan, obvious na tungkol kay Janella ang tweets ni Jenine kaya may mga nag-react na ipinapahiya ni Jenine ang anak. Hindi nagustuhan ni Jenine ang mga nagsabing hindi dapat niya sa social media pinagsasabihan si Janella.

“My space, my rules.” “You’re telling me what to do” at “I;, F-E-D U-P! Put up for so long. Gave so many chances & compromises. No more.”

In fairness kay Jenine, dati na naming nababasa ang reklamo niyang ito kay Janella, pero baka naman nakalimutan lang magpaalam ng anak sa kanya. On the other hand, tama rin ang netizens na dapat ay kinausap na lang niya ang anak at hindi na ipinaalam sa social media na may miscommunication problem sila.

Tama rin ang supporters ni Janella na ito ang napapasama dahil siya ang artista at hindi ang ina. Sana ay magawan ito ng paraan ng mag-ina upang hindi na maulit.

BUKOD sa pagiging busy ng Kapuso hunk na si Rafael Rosell sa teleserye nila ni Kris Bernal na “Impostora,” busy rin ito sa kanyang matagal ng advocacy with PETA or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Untitled-5 copy

Matagal na kasing isang vegan si Rafael na ang ibig sabihin ay hindi na siya kumakain ng anumang karne at puro gulay lang siya.

Very much against si Rafael sa pagpapahirap at pagpatay sa mga hayop. Kaya naman hindi ito nagdalawang-isip o nang kunin siya para sa bagong campaign ad para sa PETA.

Sa naturang campaign ad, naka-topless si Rafael at may bird wings siya sa kanyang likod. May hawak siyang sign na nagsasabi na “EARN YOUR WINGS: GO VEGAN PETA.”

Ayon sa website ng PETA, ang campaign ad ng aktor ay kinunan ni Wesley Villarica habang ang kanyang wings ay dinisenyo ni Cha Laxamana.

Pinost pa niya ito sa kanyang Instagram account:

“We say we love animals, but in reality we only love pets. We say we want to protect the environment, yet we contribute to the number one pollutant on the planet: animal agriculture. Come to the Vegfest on November 12-13 (Eastwood) and November 19-20 (Lucky Chinatown) and learn what a plant based diet can do for you and our environment, and at the same time drown yourself in all the amazing plant based food nature has to offer. From savory to sweets; They got the best food you can only imagine!!! Aaaaaand it’s all plant based!!! No harm done to animals nor abused for their byproducts. For all “animal lovers” and “environmentalists” out there; be ready to have your mind blown, your soul uplifted and your tummies satisfied!!!👊🏽😝 See you all at our country’s very first #VegFest!!! #VegFestPh #VegFestPilipinas #Vegan #PlantBased”

HINDI nakasipot si Ria Atayde sa presscon ng Wansapanataym na pinagbibidahan ni Awra Briguela dahil may taping siya ng Maalaala Mo Kaya na mapapanood ngayong gabi.

Gaganap si Ria sa Wansapanataym bilang si Reyna Maxima, alien queen na nagbigay ng bato kay Ellen Adarna (Super Bing) na siya namang nagpasa nito kay Awra.

RIA copy

Special guest si Ria sa Amazing Ving ni Awra at masaya siya dahil sa kanyang ikalawang Wansapanataym ay siya na ang bida. Nauna na niyang nakasama sina Janella Salvador at Elmo Magalona na ipinalabas noong Disyembre na may titulong Holly at Mau. Masaya si Ria dahil hindi siya nawawalan ng TV show bukod pa sa nahahasa ang acting niya sa iba’t ibang genre.

Bago mapanood si Ria sa Wansapanataym bukas ay mapapanood muna siya ngayong gabi sa Maalaala Mo Kaya. Gagampanan niya si Hershey Hilado, ang Pinay na successful businesswoman sa Australia.

“Ibang challenge naman po ulit kasi, tough character si Hershey at may Fil-Australian accent! And she’s more morena and marami po siyang pinagdaanan na traumatizing experience, so maraming layers sa characterization.

“Pangalawa na po ito for me, pero first ko po na ako ang letter sender. So, nakakatuwa naman po, super blessing po for me. And ‘yung fact na may naniniwala pala sa kakayanan ko, nakakataba ng puso at nakakagana lalo to learn more and improve myself.”

Bilang paghahanda sa ginampanang karakter, pinanood ni Ria ang lahat ng videos ni Hershey sa YouTube.

“Nanood po ako ng lahat ng videos ni Hershey sa YouTube. Finollow ko po siya sa IG. Super inobserbahan ko po siya para makita ‘yung mga nuances and mannerisms niya,” sabi pa.

Makakasama ni Ria sa cast si Alyanna Angels (bilang batang Hershey) at Ryle Santiago , Aleck Bovick, Simon Ibarra, Jordan Hwang, Denise Joaquin at Celine Lim.

Anyway, habang tinatapos namin ang balitang ito ay nasa Singapore na si Ria kasama si Marvin Agustin para naman sa shooting ng anniversary special ng Ipaglaban Mo.

MAPAPANOOD na bukas ang Wansapanataym Presents Amazing Ving ni Awra Briguela at excited ang bagets. Mantakin ba namang bida na agad siya at superhero pa ang ipinagkatiwalang role sa unang TV series niya.

RODERICK AT AWRA copy

Aliw na aliw ang reporters sa press launch nila last Thursday dahil ang gaganap na tatay ni Awra ay si Roderick Paulate na nagkataon na siya palang inirekomenda sa kanya ni Coco Martin na maging peg niya noong bago pa lang siyang ma-discover. Kaya pinanood niya ang mga pelikula noon ni Dick.

Nagkatawanan pang lalo nang magkuwento si Awra na nag-alala siya na baka hindi na makaarte si Dick na inakala pala niyang matandang-matanda na.

“Pero nang mag-taping na kami,” sey ng bagets, “mas maliksi pa siyang kumilos kesa sa ‘kin.”

“Siguro ang akala mo uugod-ugod na ‘ko, ano?” natawang sabi ni Kuya Dick.

Palibhasa, marami na rin kasing nakakasamang senior stars sa Ang Probinsyano si Awra.

Samantala, proud na proud si Coco ngayong nakikita niya kung gaano kamahal ng bata ang trabaho niya at talagang pinagbubutihan pa.

May IG posts si Coco na mega-promote sa Wansapanataym Presents Amazing Ving. Kaya panay naman ang pasasalamat ni Awra sa kanyang Kuya Coco.

Sa press launch, natanong si Awra kung nalungkot o masaya siya na nawala si Onyok o Xyriel Ezequiel Pineda) sa FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano at nagulat ang lahat sa sagot niyang, “Opo, masaya ako.”

Hindi dahil nawala si Onyok at solo na ni Awra ang limelight ng Probinsyano kundi masaya siya dahil matutupad na ang gusto ng kaibigan na muling bumalik sa pag-aaral dahil lagi raw may dalang libro ang bagets sa set ng serye nila.

E, si Awra kaya, kailan naman siya magbabalik-eskuwela?

TAMA ang hula namin na si Glaiza de Castro ang papasok sa “Mulawin vs. Ravena.” Noong nakausap namin si direk Dominic Zapata sa taping nito’y sinabi niyang may magko-cross over na sang’gre mula sa “Encantadia.”

Secret daw muna kung sino. Pero lumabas na ang balitang si Glaiza ang papasok sa MVR. Gumanap siya bilang sang’gre Pirena sa “Encantadia.” Magandang abangan ang paglabas ni Glaiza sa MVR.

Untitled-6 copy

Samantala, puring-puri ni direk Dom si Kiko Estrada na gumaganap bilang Rafael sa MVR. Aniya, gusto niya ang work ethics ni Kiko. “He tries to better himself ever day. Same for all my actors. It has become a culture in their group not only when it comes to acting, pati sa pangangatawan nila. Obvious naman kay Derrick (Monasterio) or sa kanilang moves. The following day, you see that they’re a little bit better and better. That’s the culture that I try to inculcate in the group,” sabi ni direk Dom.

May nakapagtsika nga pala sa amin na writer ng isang GMA show ang girlfriend ni direk Dom. Kaya pala, iba ang aura niya. Mukhang ganado magtrabaho parati kahit puyatan sila sa taping ng MVR.

Nag-umpisa na ring mag-taping si direk Dom para sa book 2 ng “Alyas Robinhood” topbilled by Dingdong Dantes. Tsika pa ng source namin, maganda ang girlfriend ni direk Dom.

Throwback lang, ex-girlfriend niya ang dating aktres na si Krista Ranillo na happily married na sa isang rich businessman. Naka-base ang pamilya nila sa United States.

Awkward

Sabi ni John Lloyd Cruz, may isang eksena sila ni Sarah Geronimo sa “Finally Found Someone” na talagang ikinagulat niya. “I was really blown away. Ang galing niya. May mga hugot siya,” sabi ni JLC sa presscon.

Kahit ano’ng pilit ng press, hindi sinabi ni JLC kung ano’ng eksena ‘yun. Basta panoorin na lang daw ang movie nila.

Ayaw din sabihin ni direk Theodore Boborol kung ano’ng eksena ‘yun na aniya, pati siya’y sobrang humanga rin sa galing ni Sarah.

Ayon kay JLC, always looking forward siya to working with Sarah. Huli silang nagkatrabaho sa “It Takes A Man and A Woman” in 2013.

Pero awkward daw siya kapag gumagawa sila ng pelikula. “Ang galing niya kasi. Pero hindi niya alam ‘yun. Hindi rin niya alam na maganda siya. Parang ina-under estimate niya ang sarili niya,” words to that effect na sabi ni John Lloyd.

INULAN ng congratulatory messages ang Facebook account ng bagong hirang na Urian Best Actress na si Hasmine Killip para sa kanyang mahusay na pagganap sa Pamilya Ordinaryo.

Tinalo ni Hasmine sa 40th Gawad Urian ang ilang beteranong aktres na kinabibilangan nina Nora Aunor (Hinulid), Laila Ulao (Women of the Weeping River), Jaclyn Jose (Ma’Rosa, na ginawaran ng Best Actress sa Cannes 2016), Elizabeth Oropesa (Mrs.), Cherry Pie Picache (Pauwi Na), Ai Ai de las Alas (Area), Charo Santos- Concio (Ang Babaeng Humayo), Irma Adlawan (Oro), at Angeli Bayani (Ned’s Project).

HASMINE AT RONWALDO SA 'PAMILYA ORDINARYO'_option copy

Kasalukuyang nasa London si Hasmine dahil doon sila nakatira ng kanyang mister na si Anthony Killip. Kasisilang din niya ng kanilang first baby na si Maya Venice Killip nitong nakaraang Hunyo 29 sa Whipps Cross University Hospital.

Ang direktor ng Pamilya Ordinaryo na si Eduardo Roy, Jr. (nominado rin bilang Best Director) ang tumanggap ng trophy ng magaling na actress.

Sa pakikipag-usap namin kay Hasmine via Facebook messenger, aniya, “Wala akong alam, sa totoo lang, busy ako kay baby… nag-breastfeed.”

Sa isang kaibigan daw niya nalaman na nanalo siya sa Gawad Urian. Inisip daw niya, nanalo siya sa isang UK lottery.

“Nasa isip ko, baka ‘yung dito sa UK postcode winner na nanalo ng £150K lol! Sabi niya sa Urian. Sabi ko, gaga!

Walang pag-asa roon kasi nga beterano ‘yung andu’n, at baka mali ‘yang siya pero nominated ako sa Urian. Sabi pa niya, tingnan ko raw sa Facebook. Hayun, ang dami ngang nagko-congratulate. Wahahahaha!” kuwento niya.

Ayon sa newbie award-winning actress, masaya ang asawa niya sa sunud-sunod na pagwawagi niya ng Best Actress at may go-signal na rin ang kanyang mister na kapag may magandang project sa ‘Pinas, papayagan siyang umuwi at gawin ito.

“Very happy siya sa mga nakukuha kong parangal,” wika pa ni Hasmine. “Proud na proud siya. Sabi pa niya kung may magbibigay daw ng work ulit saken diyan sa ‘Pinas, susuportahan daw niya ako kasi alam daw niyang gusto ko rin ang pag-arte. Hehehe!”

Bago nanalo sa Urian, naiuwi na rin ng aktres ang mga karangalan bilang Best Actress sa 11th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival; Special Jury Mention sa London East Asia Film Festival; Hanoi International Film Festival sa Hanoi Vietnam; Asia Pacific Screen Awards sa Brisbane, Australia; Oporto International Film Festival (Director’s Week Section) sa Portugal, at Harlem International Film Festival sa New York, USA.

At dahil hindi pa niya natatanggap ang trophy ng URIAN, photo ng anak niyang si Baby Maya ang ipinost niya sa kanyang FB page at nilagyan ng caption na, “Ikaw ang TROPHY ng buhay ko!”

MARAMI ang nag-akalang hindi sisipot si Vilma Santos sa 40th Gawad Urian na ginanap sa ABS-CBN nitong nakaraang Huwebes ng gabi. Inisnab daw kasi ng Urian ang pinag-usapang acting ni Ate Vi sa All About Her na limang best actress awards na naibibigay sa Star for All Seasons.

VILMA copy

Kaya marami ang nagulat na kahit kararating lang galing America ay present ang beauty ni Ate Vi sa Gawad Urian night para tanggapin ang Gawad Urian Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ayon kay Ate Vi, malaki ang utang na loob niya sa Urian sa pagkilala sa kanya simula pa noon at magpahangang ngayon.

Katunayan, walong best actress awards na ang napanalunan niya sa nasabing award-giving body.

“I guess I am lucky enough to be given eight awards kaya iyon lang, eh, dapat ko nang ipagpasalamat sa Urian,” sey ni Cong. Vi.

Aniya pa, malaking bagay para sa kanya ang panibagong karangalang ibinigay sa kanya ng Urian. Kahit nasa pulitika na raw siya ngayon, iba pa rin ang pakiramdam niya sa tuwing nakakatanggap siya ng parangal sa pagiging aktres niya.

Kahit mas abala na siya sa pagiging public servant, hindi pa rin niya nakakalimutan ang industriyang kinalalakihan niya — ang industriya ng pelikula at telebisyon.

Kasabay ring pinasalamatan ni Ate Vi ang The Eddys na siya rin ang hinirang na best actress, pero hindi niya personal na natanggap ang kanyang tropeo dahil nasa America siya noon.

Hindi rin niya nakalimutang banggitin ang Vilmanians na palaging nakasuporta sa kanya sa showbiz man o sa pulitika.

“Kaysarap ng pakiramdam dahil sa mga Vilmanians ko na walang sawa ang suporta na ibinibigay nila sa akin. Sa totoo lang naman, sobrang suwerte pa rin naman ako dahil andyan pa rin sila,” lahad pa ng Star for All Seasons.

Samantala, sa darating na Star Awards for Movies na gaganapin sa September 3 ay muling nominado si Ate Vi para pa rin All About Her at sila pa rin ng kumare niyang si Nora Aunor ang mahigpit na magkalaban.

“Kami naman ni Kumare, eh, graduate na kami riyan. Kumbaga, kung sinuman ang mananalo, eh, happy kami for sure,” pahayag ni Ate Vi.

In many ways, Facebook has become its own parallel universe. Millions of people use the app on their phones, and more never think to log out. Entire businesses are run through Facebook, and some institutions use a Facebook page instead of an actual website. Despite the many methods of instant communication, Facebook users routinely use Messenger to write or call friends all over the world.

But Facebook still has its flukes, and these minor inconveniences can waste time or even embarrass you down the road. Here are five hard-to-figure-out tricks for improving your Facebook experience.

1. Scope out all public photos of you

Facebook is usually pretty careful about tagging photos. When someone tags you in a photo, you receive an alert and you have the option to the remove the tag. But sometimes, in the flurry of online activity, we don’t realize that we’ve been tagged in a photo. Yet there it is, available anyone to see. Depending on the photo, you may wish to delete it.

To review these photos, the best way is to check your Activity Log. In the Activity Log page, click on "Photos" on the left side column, then "Photos of You."

From here, there are multiple tweaks. To see all your visible public photos, select "Public" on the "Shared with" arrow and select "Visible" on the "On Timeline" arrow then scroll down to review. You may then hide photos from your Timeline or report/remove tags by clicking the pencil icon.

2. Log out of Facebook remotely

There are a hundred reasons you may log onto Facebook on an unfamiliar computer. Maybe your phone died and your friend offered you his laptop. Maybe you’re traveling and you decided to check your social media accounts in an Internet café. All standard operating procedure. But it’s also a security hazard and could land you in a world of trouble.

Thankfully, Facebook enables you to log out of all your sessions remotely. By the way, this is also a handy trick to see if someone is accessing your Facebook account without your knowledge.

On the desktop version of Facebook, click the little drop down arrow on the upper-right corner then select "Settings." Next, click "Security and Login". Here look for the "Where You're Logged In" section. In this section, find the device you want to log off from by clicking the three vertical dots on the left side then select "Log Off."

If you’re not sure which device you were on, just scroll down through the list of devices then select "Log Out of All Sessions." This will log you out of all your sessions, even your authorized devices, so keep in mind that you will have to re-authorize your devices again.

For mobile Facebook users, tap here for a full step-by-step guide.

3. Prevent others from posting on your Timeline

You’ve probably experienced this at some point: Your uncle or coworker thinks a video is funny, and he posts it on your wall. You don’t find it funny at all, and maybe it’s even offensive and misleading. Or maybe the comment threads on your posts have spun out of control; bitter arguments have erupted that you never intended.

Facebook makes it easy to prevent people from posting on your wall. This gives a lot of users peace of mind. They can use Facebook in the usual way, reading and posting at their leisure, but their own walls are safe from digital graffiti.

To do this on desktop Facebook, go to your "Settings" page again then choose "Timeline and Tagging" on the left column. To prevent anyone from posting stuff on your Timeline just click "Edit" on the "Who can post on your timeline" section and set it to "Only Me." This will prevent your friends from embarrassing you any further.

You could also turn off automatic post tagging in this section. This will let you review the posts your friends tag you in before they appear on your Timeline. For more essential Timeline and Tagging tips that only the pros know, check this article out.

4. Hide notifications for certain posts

This is an easy tweak, but it can save a lot of headaches down the line. Suppose you were tagged in a friend's post, and your friend has a lot of other friends. Suddenly you are getting notifications every few seconds, because all those friends are commenting on that post, and then commenting on the comments. This can get really overwhelming, especially if you don’t know the people liking and commenting. This is why you can turn off notifications for any post.

To do this, just go to the post then click on the little arrow pointer on the upper right corner of the post's header then select "Turn off notifications for this post." This works for both the desktop and mobile version of Facebook. Ah, the sweet sound of silence.

5. Access that secret message folder

One of the most mysterious parts of Facebook is the “Message Request” folder. Many people don’t even realize this folder exists. Instead of a traditional “junk” folder, like you’d find in your email, Facebook filters a lot of spam messages to the Message Request category. By design, it’s easy to ignore.

But this folder also receives messages from real people you are not officially “friends” with. Maybe you know the person well and you’re eagerly awaiting a message, but Facebook doesn’t recognize your real-world connection. This is why it’s important to periodically check your Message Request folder: Some messages get lost for weeks, or even years, waiting for the recipient to find it.

To access this folder on the desktop, go to https://www.facebook.com/messages/ and on the upper left corner, click on the cog icon then click on "Message Requests. On the next section click "See Filtered Requests.". This will reveal all the messages that Facebook dutifully hid from you. There might be a few in there that you really wanted to see!

Sony is known for making great sensors that serve as a camera's eye, but it apparently designs eyes for robots, as well. The Japanese tech giant has announced the release of a high-speed vision sensor that will allow industrial robots to detect and track objects at 1,000 frames per second. Robots used in factories aren't typically the most sophisticated. Their operators usually have to plot their movements using a program, since they're only meant to do specific tasks in the factory again and again. This high-speed vision sensor, however, could lead to autonomous machines that can quickly react to an object's movements in real time.

That's made possible by the fact that the chip itself can process images and can instantly tell the machine what it's seeing -- no need to send the images over to a separate computer for processing. In the video above, for instance, you'll see the system identifying different currencies at a glance, tracking different fingers individually as they move and inspecting items without having to stop the conveyor belt for a closer look.

Once it makes its way to actual factories, the sensor could instantly identify malfunctions that would've affected production. It could also prevent accidents and get rid of machines' limitations. The best thing about it, though, is that it's not just a concept waiting to be manufactured. Sony will begin shipping samples to potential customers in October 2017.
