BLIND ITEM # 4 : Philosopher-Senator

This controversial lady senator did some philosophizing several days ago, upon her mentioning of the catchphrase “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”

She mentioned this in the wake of an uproar over a very pricey building that was built to the tune of two billion pesos, by the patriarch of her family in an upscale city. Her brother, who now sits as the mayor of that city, described the notorious building as “world-class.”

PBB ALL IN: The Unlikely Winner

I am a quite certain that many Filipinos out there would have wanted a kababayan to have emerged as the winner in the recently concluded Pinoy Big Brother: All In.

Have you been to a fish spa?

Facebook as well as other social media are ablaze with photos of so called “makeup transformations”, the latest internet bug to hit creatures of cyberspace. This fad is a four-part collage that shows an individual mimicking a famous celebrity. 

Complete with props and creativity, the individual transforms himself or herself to look like a celebrity. Others have taken it to another level by parodying a movie character, cartoon character, and even an object.

With this latest craze, will Filipinos be far behind? I will not make this article long, since I will let the following photos do the talking.

Thank you to all my contributors, for allowing me to enshrine your wonderful and wacky versions in this humble blog (XOXO).

BLIND ITEM # 2 : Epic Fail Teleserye

I was drawn to watching the first few episodes of this prime time teleserye of a “family” network, for the reason that I was intrigued by its mind-twisting title.  

Consequently, I learned that the story revolves around something sweet and irresistible – chocolate. The principal character is an heiress of her father’s chocolate manufacturing company, and her supposed to be love interest is a chocolatier – a person who makes confectionery out of chocolate.
