One Direction Pays Philippines a 200K Drug Bond, Zayn Malik Not Joining the Manila Concert

One Direction Pays Philippines a 200K Drug Bond, Zayn Malik Not Joining the Manila Concert

One Direction, who is set to perform in a 2-night concert at SM MOA Concert Grounds on March 21 and 22, paid a P200,000 ($4,500) cash bond to the Philippine government in response to Bureau of Immigration's anti-drug campaign request for strict scrutiny of members Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson who were both engaged in a viral video showing them in an apparent marijuana session in a car while on tour in Peru last year. 

"The condition is intended to protect the public interest should the band members commit any violation during their stay in the Philippines," BI spokeswoman Elaine Tan said. 

Meanwhile, Malik, who is engaged to Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, will no longer be joining the Manila leg of their "On Tour Again" world tour concert due to depression after being photographed holding hands with a girl named Lauren Rich in Thailand causing serious problem with his relationship to Edwards. 

"Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta," his London-based publicist Simon Jones said. 

On his Twitter post, an angry Malik said: "I'm 22 years old ... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous f***s in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x"

TV5 warmly welcomes the summer season by launching the new batch of stories to be featured on WATTPAD PRESENTS Season 2, making viewers' hearts grow fonder as they get to know the characters and kilig stories from four more Wattpad hits.

Since WATTPAD PRESENTS was launched last September 2014, TV5 has successfully created a new trend that broke the traditional drama offering on daily primetime TV. WATTPAD PRESENTS gave life to some of the most well-loved Wattpad characters who further endeared themselves to the viewers every night. Kapatid viewers have seen how TV5 artists and talents from the other networks have collaborated for the much-requested TV adaptations of some of the most popular Wattpad novels. Through WATTPAD PRESENTS, viewers have also grown to love the characters of Sitti and Kaizer in "My Tag Boyfriend", Nialla and Jeffrey in "Dyepni", Ekang and Alden in "Almost a Cinderella Story", Alyssa and Van in "My Fiance Since Birth", and Chelsea and her "Kamahalan Kyle" in "Mr. Popular Meets Miss Nobody", to name a few.

This month, the Happy Network is proud to unveil four new stories that will definitely make "summer loving" more kilig and fun. Wattpad followers will be delighted to know that the TV adaptation of author ckaichen's  hit Wattpad novel is now coming to TV5 via WATTPAD PRESENTS "Heartbreaker". Featuring Carl Guevarra and popular YouTube video blogger Donnalyn Bartolome, this interesting plot paints the story of how one girl's plan for sweet vengeance takes a wrong turn and backfires on her, making her fall in love all over again. A fictional website called "4hartbreakrdotcom" is a special website that helps those people who are having trouble with matters of the heart. Summer (Donnalyn), who is currently mending a broken heart, will do everything just to get back at her former boyfriend Jason (Joseph Loyzaga) even if it means ordering "someone" who can help her via the mentioned website. Doubtful that some help will be sent her way, Summer gets the surprise of her life when a very good looking and fine young man named Dustin (Carl Guevarra) appears before her. Will she become successful in using Dustin to get back at Jason or will she just end up really falling in love with her "ordered assistance"? Find out if Summer will ever get her heart fixed on WATTPAD PRESENTS "Heartbreaker" starting this March 16.

For the week of March 23, hearts will definitely swoon as Mister International 2014 title holder Neil Perez ventures into his first TV5 appearance as he teams up with Isabelle de Leon on WATTPAD PRESENTS "My Ex, My Professor". Originally written by Maevelanne with over 1.5 million reads and 22.8k votes on Wattpad, this tells the story of how a past love can haunt you unexpectedly. Hannah's (Isabelle) happy bubble gets popped as she returns to school when she finds out that the newest "hottie" math professor in their campus is her ex-boyfriend, Mr. Viel Anueva (Neil), the same guy she left without any word or closure. How can she possibly run away from her past if it is already catching up with her during her daily Math class with her professor Viel? Is Hannah ready to face the reality that she is still in love with Viel or will she just have to stick with her new love in the persona of her loyal boyfriend Lloyd (The Amazing Race Philippines victor, Matt Edwards). Catch Neil and Isabelle as they give life to the characters of Mr. Viel and Hannah on WATTPAD PRESENTS "My Ex, My Professor".

Meanwhile, WATTPAD PRESENTS will be ushering the month of April by depicting how far a person can go in pursuing one's happiness when it comes to love. TV5 delivers the TV adaptation of one of the mostfollowed stories written by blue_maiden, now with 1.1 million reads and 17.2k votes on Wattpad, in WATTPAD PRESENTS "Lady in Disguise". For the first time, Steven Silva teams up with Eula Caballero to give life to the characters of Kyle and Mika/Miko, respectively. Fresh from her breakup, Mika comes up with the perfect plan to win back the heart of Marco (Brett Jackson), the guy who suddenly left her, even if it means she has to enrol herself in an "all boy school" and pretend to be a guy named "Miko". Just as Mika thinks that she has actually gotten away with her plan, her roommate Kyle (Steven), accidentally discovers her secret. Mika is forced to confess to Kyle that she is doing it all in order to win back Marco. Kyle decides to help Mika with her plan but soon finds himself falling in love with her. For Kyle, loving Mika is not hard, but what makes things more complicated more than the fact that Mika is still chasing Marco, is the mere fact that Kyle has already a girlfriend chosen by his parents. Will Kyle and Mika ever end up with the ones they love or are they just bound to guise and mask their true feelings for each other? Find out on WATTPAD PRESENTS "Lady in Disguise" starting April 6.

Making this batch of Wattpad stories more special is the return of the sought-after love team of Mark Neumann and Shaira Mae in a special WATTPAD PRESENTS episode which is shot mostly in Hong Kong Disneyland. Entitled "The Magic in You", this special WATTPAD PRESENTS episode tells the story of Princess (Shaira Mae) who, like every girl, grew up with a certain fondness for Disney characters. Like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella and Mulan, she too believes in the magic of love that comes to all the princesses. As if the universe granted her heart's desire, Princess finally got her wish when she gets to fly to the happiest place on earth, Hong Kong Disneyland, believing that her boyfriend will be proposing to her in the most romantic way in this magical land. Unfortunately though, all her heart gets crushed the moment she finds out that her boyfriend is actually breaking up with her in the middle of the festive Hong Kong Disneyland parade. To add insult to injury, the most miserable and devastating scenario in her life was captured and posted on YouTube by a boy named Basti (Mark), who recorded her breakdown and made her an overnight online sensation. Vowing to catch the culprit who made this "Parade Crybaby" video, Princess occasionally returns to Hong Kong Disneyland where she eventually meets Basti. Find out how Princess and Basti will find their happily ever after in the magical place of Hong Kong Disneyland.  WATTPAD PRESENTS "The Magic in You" airs on April 13.

Experience the magic of love and be ready to be inspired as TV5 airs all these kilig stories to welcome the summer season and make it more memorable. Discover why these Wattpad stories, published through LIB Creatives Publishing, have successfully created their solid following. WATTPAD PRESENTS airs Monday to Friday at 9pm, only on TV5.

Illegal Distributors of ABS-CBN Content in LA and Australia Arrested and Convicted

Illegal Distributors of ABS-CBN Content in LA and Australia Arrested and Convicted

ABS-CBN Global Press Release

ABS-CBN International scored two recent legal victories in its determined fight against piracy.  

In February, Fernando Bernabe who faced charges in Long Beach, California criminal court for the second time under California Penal Code 653w(A) (1) and California Penal Code 29800 (A) (1) for selling pirate DVDs of ABS-CBN movies and TV shows at his movie rental store, as well as for possession of a gun, pled guilty and was sentenced to one year in prison.

Bernabe is required to pay restitution of nearly $10,000 to the victim, ABS-CBN International, as well as court fines and fees.  Bernabe will be on probation when he finishes his one-year jail sentence. If he violates probation and sells pirated DVDs again, he will return to jail for a four-year prison term.

In late January, Mary Smith of Barooga, New South Wales, Australia, who was the largest eBay seller of pirated ABS-CBN DVDs, pled guilty to all charges in Finlay Court in Australia.  Prior to her arrest, the Australian police executed a warrant on Smith's home and seized a large number of suspect ABS-CBN DVDs, hard disk drives, machinery and materials used to copy DVDs and mail them to customers.

Smith pled guilty on January 29, 2015 to all charges including (1) dishonestly obtaining property by deception contrary to section 192E(1)(a) of theCrimes Act 1900 by dishonestly reproducing and on-selling unauthorized compact disk copies of movies and television series, the property of ABS-CBN Corporation, encompassing ABS-CBN Film Productions, Inc., Star Cinema and ABS-CBN International; (2) dealing with property suspected to be the proceeds of crime contrary to section 193C(1) of the Crimes Act 1900 by dealing with unauthorized reproduced compact disks of movies and television series that there are reasonable grounds to suspect are the proceeds of crime; and (3) selling or hiring an infringing copy of a work contrary to section 132AE(1) of the Copyright Act 1968 by selling infringing copies of works being unauthorized reproduced compact disks of movies and television series, the property of ABS-CBN Corporation, encompassing ABS-CBN Film Productions, Inc., dba Star Cinema and ABS-CBN International.

Smith was not sentenced to jail this time as it was her first offense but was ordered to pay compensation to ABS-CBN for all profits she made from the sale of the unauthorized copied DVDs and pay criminal court fees.

"It is a responsibility to curb unlawful and unauthorized reproduction and use of content owned by others.  It is theft.  Like what many others in the industry who believe in and share this responsibility, we will continue to go after those who knowingly steal and benefit from this illegal practice," said ABS-CBN AVP of Global Anti-Piracy Elisha Lawrence.

"We at ABS-CBN are not alone in the anti-piracy war.  We are joining in the efforts of a worldwide industry affected by piracy which unites with the global creative community and believes in justly protecting their intellectual property," said ABS-CBN Global COO Raffy Lopez.

Robin Padilla and Wife Mariel Discover a Loving Way to Organic Living with Ascof Lagundi

Robin Padilla and Wife Mariel Discover a Loving Way to Organic Living with Ascof Lagundi

With Robin Padilla's new organic lifestyle, there is no better time than now for him to be the newest brand endorser of natural cough medicine, ASCOF Lagundi.

At first, the award-winning actor was hesitant about the project because he thought he would be endorsing a synthetic product -, something he tries to avoid because he prefers to use herbal medicines in real life.

"'Nung unang pinitch sa akin 'to, sabi ko ayaw ko ng mga gamot kasi hindi ako uminom ng gamot kasi kami ni Mariel organic [living]… pero 'nung nakita ko na organic talaga ang ASCOF Lagundi [pumayag na agad ako]," says Robin in an interview when he visited LAC Farms, one of the country's biggest OCCP (Organic Certification Center of the Philippines), GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)-certified organic farm owned by Pascual Laboratories, the maker of ASCOF Lagundi.

Robin and wife Mariel Rodriguez believe that one should choose herbal medicines because it is natural unlike synthetic ones that may cause liver deterioration.

"Marami po tayong gamot na maiinom na available over-the-counter na gagamutin 'yung sakit mo pero sisirain naman 'yung liver mo," says Robin.

Cough being one of the most common sicknesses in the Philippines resulted in the increase in number of cough medicines, all with claims to be the most effective in addressing it. While this is true, not all brands can claim that they are natural and organic.

ASCOF Lagundi, a herbal medicine, is one of the few that can claim that it is natural, organic, and effective against cough. It has a luwag-tunaw combo action against cough - a bronchodilating effect that widens inflamed/constricted air passageways in the lungs, giving relief to the patient, and a mucolytic action that melts phlegm for easier expectoration.

"'Yung Chairman ng aming company, si Dr. Abraham F. Pascual, ay may advocacy na mag-develop ng natural products kasi marami talaga sa Philippines na halaman na may medicinal properties so it's his advocacy to develop products that will be good for the consumers. We find that we are aligned with Mr. Robin Padilla's own advocacy kaya naman siya ang kinuha namin as endorser for ASCOF," says Ayne Rili, ASCOF's Senior Brand Manager.

"Ang maganda sa ASCOF ay sila 'yung unang brand na gumamit ng Lagundi. Iyong ASCOF, 19 years na sila,'yung iba sumunod na lang," says Robin.

Having produced Lagundi leaves from its own certified-organic farm, you can only expect that PascualLab uses the best ingredients, coupled with strict quality standards and modern technology.

With the couple's newly shared interest and practice, Robin says that it brought them to different countries to really study the lifestyle. While Robin says that explaining this kind of living will be a long discussion, he says that his biggest takeaway is feeling lighter and more at ease with his body every day.

Practicing this way of living for almost three years now, the action star feels responsible to share his discovery to everyone because it is good for one's overall wellness.

"Meron tayong moral obligation sa mga taong naniniwala sa atin na dalhin natin sila sa tama. Ito ang paraan natin to give back, [to only endorse] the truth. Itong organic medicine is the best na maibibigay natin sa tao," says Robin.
