Angel Locsin is MEGA Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman of 2009

Posted by JED on , under , | comments (10)

Angel Locsin was hailed MEGA Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman of 2009 on their May 2009 issue featuring the 10 Most Beautiful A-list Celebrities of 2009.

MEGA Magazine describe Angel as lustrous, beguiling, unquestionably beautiful and genuinely good-natured.

When asked about what beauty means to her, she said, "
the simpler a woman is, the more beautiful she is because in her simplicity, you’ll instantly see that’s she’s beautiful. Not because she became famous, but because of the way she carries herself, what her aura emanates. That’s what’s beautiful to me. I admire a woman who has confidence, a woman who believes in herself, knows that she’s beautiful, intelligent and sexy and carries herself well, even if she’s not that beautiful in the popular sense. That’s number one.

"Number two, when you talk to a beautiful woman, what she says should make sense. You’ll find a woman more appealing if, from the start, she’s interesting to talk to. Then number three, her personality, of course. You may be intelligent and beautiful, but if you’re not approachable or you’re just not that pleasant to talk to, that’s the deal breaker."

See more of Angel plus 9 other most beautiful women like Nikki Gil, Charo Santos-Concio, Heart Evangelista, Stef Henares, Joanne Ramirez, Audrey Tan Zubiri, Michelle Panemanglor, Korina Sanchez and Carmina Villaroel in the May 2009 issue of MEGA Magazine.

Martin Nieverra Asked to Apologize for Singing the Philippine National Anthem

Teddy Atienza, head of the Heraldry Division of the National Historical Institute (NHI), said Martin Nievera violated Section 37 of the Republic Act No. 8491 by NOT singing the Philippine National Anthem in accordance with the musical arrangement of its composer Julian Felipe.

"Mali ang pagkanta niya…dapat sinundan niya ang nakalagay sa batas," Atienza said in a radio interview criticizing Martin Nievera’s version of Lupang Hinirang.

He even stressed that violators of this law will have to pay a fine between P5,000 and P20,000 or spend up to a year in prison. He asked Martin to ask for public apology for "tweaking" the Philippine National Anthem.

To add insult to the injury, the logo of the National Historical Institute was flashed right after Martin Nievera hit the final note.

But according to Martin, "Well it's going to be hard for me to apologize for something that I am not sorry for. I did not ask to do the anthem. Manny Pacquiao himself asked me to sing the National Anthem....My boss, Manny Pacquiao told me, 'basta wag yung mabagal. Gusto ko ‘yong parang march ang feel,'".

Pacquiao personally chose Martin to sing the national anthem for the boxer’s highly-anticipated bout with the British pugilist. Martin became the first male artist to sing the Philippine National Anthem in all of Pacman’s bouts after more than 10 female artists.

It’s interesting to note that in the past, the National Historial Institute (NHI) also reprimanded Charice, Jennifer Bautista and Christian Bautista for deviating from the song’s original form.

All three singers have apologized, saying it was not their intention that some notes or lines in the song were changed or omitted.

Ako Mismo - TV Plug

AKO MISMO is about YOU!

Making a stand and taking real action for the causes you believe in. Causes that you yourself can truly pursue to make a real, positive difference to your fellow countryman, to your country.

It is for you who still dare to hope that life for millions doesnt have to be a hopeless battle against problems like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment.

It is for you who believe that not enough is being done about our countrys problems. And that to do right things, youll do them yourself.

It is a movement where you can show your patriotism and compassion, and make these traits infectious.

Its about action that eradicates hopelessness in every Filipino.

How hard will this be to accomplish? Well that will be entirely up to you.

In AKO MISMO you get to choose the cause you wish to pursue. No cause is too small as long as it is a noble one. All we ask is that you make a pledge to do it.

You yourself can pledge anything: from teaching English to your yayas kid, to making sure that your barangay is dengue-free.

Or make a pledge to do your part in ending corruption, prostitution, illegal drugs or the inhumane treatment of animals. The choice is yours.

No matter how small, as long as you pledge that you yourself will take action, its sure to make a big difference.

Giving more hope for Filipinos to stop merely surviving, and start living. And it starts with you.

MISMO yan.

Martin Nievera - Lupang Hinirang

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

Martin Nievera, the first male artist to sing the Philippine National Anthem in all of Manny Pacquiao’s bouts, performed with smooth serenity a fresh version of Lupang Hinirang approved by the National Historic Institute.

The first four lines started out slow...a dramatic instrumental follows. The tempo became upbeat at the beginning of the fifth line until it reaches the climax of the song. Then Martin hits a very high note at the end and maintained his vibrato to the delight of the proud Filipinos at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Watch Martin Nieverra sings Lupang Hinirang below:
