Marian Rivera, on the other hand, decided to keep mum on the issue.

Lyca Gairanod, Life After Winning The Voice Kids


A year after being named the grand winner of “The Voice Kids,” Lyca Gairanod is still living her dream. Now a grade 3 student, she is busy juggling her studies and performing in gigs.

Early this month, she performed as a special guest in the concert of her former coach Sarah Geronimo in Canada, one of the many places she has been to to sing for people.

I have gained a lot of friends and my family’s life has gotten better. I’m happy to be able to help my family. All my dreams came true, and I’m thankful to God that He helped me all the way,” said Lyca, who started making a living by scavenging junk before joining “The Voice Kids.”

Aside from the house and lot she got for winning “The Voice Kids,” she has also provided her family with a car.

Besides singing, Lyca also has her eyes on acting. In fact, her performance in her “MMK” life story was well received, and even convinced her to try it again.

I really want to act, but my schedule can’t accommodate it. But I will accept whatever projects they give me,” she shared. Aside from gigs and TV guestings, she is also busy with school.

Lyca is also excited for the second season of “The Voice Kids” that will start airing this June. As the country waits for the next grand winner, Lyca offers some advice to those who want to pursue a career in music: “It’s free to dream, so just dream on. Whether you win or lose, congratulations still. The Lord will still be there for you.”

She added, “Always be kind. Never forget your family. Pray before singing. And remain humble.”

Don’t miss the premiere of “The Voice Kids” Season 2 this June on ABS-CBN.

But we made it to the summit!!! It's not easy and definitely more room pa for improvement, but for first time hikers, couldn't be more proud of our team #lagalagsapulag hehe :) tapos ulitin lahat ng ito in reverse pababa ng Pulag������ I wanna thank our local team, Alexis, Odel, & Agot Baban, from Mt.

Sia Interprets "California Dreamin" for Biggest, Scariest Disaster Movie "San Andreas"

Sia Interprets "California Dreamin" for Biggest, Scariest Disaster Movie "San Andreas"


Consistent with the edgy tone of the musical score for New Line Cinema's “San Andreas,” multiple Grammy nominee and international chart-topping artist Sia has interpreted the 1960s classic “California Dreamin'” for the film's soundtrack.

Produced by Oliver Kraus, the song was performed by Sia especially for “San Andreas,” and is heard in tandem with its closing beats and end credits, to echo the evocative and uplifting notes of the story’s big finale.

Sia's powerhouse vocals are on full display, turning the bittersweet song into a gorgeous slow-burner that demands repeat listening. Listen here:



Meanwhile, to create the primary music for “San Andreas,” director Brad Peyton again turned to Andrew Lockington, the composer on both his past film “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”

Beginning the process at the earliest possible point, Peyton explains, “The way I like to build the world is to look at the tone and the music. For ‘San Andreas,’ the question was how to create an original, epic and very emotional score, so we just dove in and started playing around to find the themes and the vibe of this movie. You can play the characters, or you can play the event so you need to decide, ‘Is this a moment where we’re grounding the experience in someone’s point of view or offering the larger view?’”

Always open to unique influences, Lockington incorporated one that was especially appropriate: sounds derived from actual waveform data collected from the San Andreas Fault, a year ago. “Using real-time seismic event data collected from the U.S. Geological Survey, we found seismic elements that could be manipulated to create these incredible sounds,” he offers. “We didn’t use it very much, but it’s a sprinkled touch, particularly under the Caltech scenes.

To capture a sense of discord, Lockington relates, “I got an old piano and spent two days destroying it with sledge hammers and wire cutters. We had planned to record hitting it with the hammers, and those sounds are blended in with the orchestral elements in the film. After that, I sat down to play this broken instrument that was hanging on by a thread, and I could play notes but they didn’t sound like they were supposed to, and it no longer even sounded like a piano. So suddenly we had this whole new instrument – and some of those sounds figure prominently in certain scenes as well. It’s an interesting rhythmic element.” The composer then worked with a programmer to synthesize portions of the damaged piano notes into what he calls “a raw, terrifying noise that feels almost like a fist dropping down on the rest of the score.’”

Transitioning from fear and destruction to perseverance and hope, Lockington then introduced portions of a boys’ choir, “to cut through everything else that’s going on and get into the depths of emotion of these characters and their will to overcome. We also have a very beautiful theme that transcends the disaster, with a lot of strings.”

When we talk in terms of locking into a character’s experience with the music, we’re trying to see what they see,” says Peyton, who could just as well apply that to his overall approach. “Beyond the epic action, buildings coming down and waves crashing through a city, there are love stories, emotional connections, and the idea of a family putting itself back together.

It’s the kind of story I love to tell: high concept, high emotion,” says Flynn. “There are a lot of powerful themes in ‘San Andreas’ and it’s also incredibly entertaining. I’m fascinated with the concept of what makes a hero.”

There’s action, love, drama, and heroes,” Dwayne Johnson sums up. “And, there’s the greatest foe known to man: Mother Nature.

After the infamous San Andreas Fault gives, triggering a magnitude 9-plus earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter. But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.

Opening across the Philippines in 3D , 2D and 4DX formats on May 28, “San Andreas” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

She was once one of the world's most beautiful women. She had it all - fame, stardom, blockbuster movies, endorsements, modelling engagements, and all that glitters. But beauty fades. As much as I don't condemn beauty enhancement, but, like some people say, "too much of anything could destroy you."

Have you seen Ruffa Gutierrez lately? She denied it several times already in the past. But now, you can easily recognize how her face looks indifferently. Her natural aura is gone. Her beauty now looks...strong?

Tune Hotels Danga Bay Johor Bahru, Malaysia: Incline to Nature and Adventure 


I am hearing a lot of friends complaining already about the unbearable summer weather condition. In fact, with a high temperature of 37°C (even reached 41°C sometime last week) for the past days, I know some who already left Manila for an impromptu-much-deserve-summer-get-away vacation. Others decided to just stay inside their home spending the day watching their favorite TV series. There are some who just bum around the mall taking advantage of a free air condition.

But for those who want to experience a new adventure, something that will make this time of the year extra thrilling for them,  Johor Bahru in Southern Malaysia is one to try-out for.

Johor Bahru (also known as Iskandar Malaysia) is the capital city of Johor in Southern Malaysia, located north of Singapore.

Once used to be a small Malay fishing village known as Tanjung Puteri, Johor Bahru quickly become one of the must-visit tourist hotspots in the region.




To fly from Manila to Johor Bahru, take Air Asia (to book your lowest fares, visit AIRASIA.COM)  from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 4 to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 then take another 40 minutes flight from KLIA2 to Senai International Airport, located 35 km North-West of the city center.

Danga Bay
Johor Bahru Zoo
Jalan Tan Hiok Nee Cultural Street
Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Glass Temple

In addition, Johor Bahru's many shopping and dining complexes cater to both Singapore and local tourists offering best value for money.




The main shopping districts are located within the city, with a number of large shopping malls located in the suburbs.

And what better way to end the day than getting the best hotel accommodation - a 5-star treatment at a very reasonable price.

Jed Madela Collaborates with World's Music Icons in Latest Album "Iconic"


World singing champion Jed Madela dropped his latest album “Iconic” earlier this month without notice, making him the first Filipino artist to release an album unannounced.

Living up to its album title, “Iconic” features Jed’s unique versions of tracks by music icons such as Madonna (“Like A Prayer”), Mariah Carey (“Love Takes Time”), Celine Dion’s “That’s The Way It Is” feat. 5thGen), and Whitney Houston’s (”Didn’t We Almost Have It All”). Jed is the only male Filipino artist to release an album featuring the said divas’ hits.

For a time, I was reported to have lost my voice due to sickness, and this album proves that I still have it. I’ve done things in this album that I had not done before, and you’ll know what they are if you listen to ‘Iconic,’” said Jed.

“Iconic,” Star Music’s biggest album for 2015, also marks a first for Jed – a duet with Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid in the classic song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Jed also experiments with new sound and sumptuous beats with EDM-laced tracks such as his remake of Christina Aguilera’s pop ballad “Beautiful,” “Like A Prayer (Brian Cua Sunset Remix),” “Beautiful (Moophs Remix),” and Jed’s original composition “Welcome To My World,” which acts as the album’s opening and closing tracks served up in two versions.

Also included on the 14-track list are Jed’s remakes of Barbra Streisand’s “Evergreen,” Gloria Estefan’s “Don’t Wanna Lose You Now,” Tiffany’s “If Love is Blind,” and Toni Braxton’s “You Mean the World to Me.”

“Iconic,” produced by Jonathan Manalo and Jed, is now available at all record bars nationwide for only P350. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via leading record stores all over the country and in online music stores such as iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, and Starmusic.ph.

“Pasion De Amor” Replaces Alex Gonzaga's "Inday Bote" Beginning June 1


Primetime television has never been this hot as ABS-CBN gathers some of today’s hottest stars for the highly-anticipated remake of the worldwide hit telenovela sensation “Pasion De Amor” premiering this Monday (June 1).

Topbilled by Jake Cuenca, Ejay Falcon, Joseph Marco, Ellen Adarna, Coleen Garcia, and newest Kapamilya Arci Munoz, ‘Pasion De Amor’ relives the passionate story of love and revenge between the Samonte brothers and Elizondo sisters.

Despite being orphans at an early age, the Samonte siblings namely Juan (Jake), Oscar (Ejay), Franco (Joseph) and Olivia (Ingrid Dela Paz) grew up filled with love in their hearts and tightly knit as a family.

One mistake would change their lives when Olivia fell in love with rich and married haciendero Bernardo Elizondo (Ronaldo Valdez). After learning about her husband’s infidelity, Gabriela (Teresa Loyzaga) seeks revenge and only Olivia and Bernardo’s death can appease her. Gabriela proceeds with her plans and succeeds in getting rid of the two.

The Samonte brothers, meanwhile, get so devastated with what happened to their youngest sister that they vowed to do everything in their power just to avenge her. In order for them to do this, they step inside Hacienda Elizondo and with their irresistible charms and manly physiques, the three seduce and make Bernardo and Gabriela’s daughters Norma (Arci), Sari (Ellen) and Jamie (Coleen) fall in love with them.

Can Juan, Oscar, and Franco succeed in their plan to manipulate the Elizondo sisters in their hands? How far will revenge and anger take them? In a battle where love is their greatest revenge, will love also be the cure to end their pain?
