Last February 24, Friday was another memorable day for us- ang Regal Films audition search for new Regal Babies!

Ito na yata ang pinakamasayang audition search na napuntahan ng blogger na ito,  after so many years! Pagpasok na pagpasok pa lamang namin sa sosyal na opisina ng Regal Films sa may Tycoon Tower sa Ortigas Center, damang-dama na namin ang excitement, ang saya, at ang umiigting na mga pagasa sa mga mukha ng auditioners!

Very positive ang ambience sa loob ng Regal office. Everywhere you look at, puro naggagandahang mga dilag at nagkikisigang mga binata ang makikita mo! Pawang mga walang itulak-kabigin! Kay sasarap pagkukurutin sa mukha!

Naku naman, magpapatalbog ba ang mga talents naming sina Janna Tiangco and her so cute and lovable brother na si Mhac Tiangco? Dehins, no! Kasabay namin silang pumasok sa loob ng Regal office. At pagpasok namin, lahat ng mga auditioners ay napatingin sa kanilang dalawa. Center of attraction sila bigla! very sexy kasi si Janna that afternoon sa suot-suot niyang mini-skirt at si Mhac naman, ruggedly handsome sa suot niyang brown windbreaker jacket.

All-smiles lang ang daddy ni Janna na si Mr. July Tiangco. And of course, ang mabait na pinsan nina Janna at Mhac na si Miss Jing Munoz na puwede ring artista dahil sa kanyang kagandahan.

Very friendly din ang mga kasamang mga ‘stage mothers’ and ‘stage fathers’, ‘stage talent managers’, ‘stage alalays’ and ‘stage friends’ ng mga auditioners. Walang mga suplado at isnabero, hindi tulad sa ibang mga audition searches na nagpapataasan ng mga ihi ang mga tao na akala mo mga kung sino. Itong grupo na ito ng mga auditioners sa Regal Films ay sadyang matatawag naming “wonderful batch”!

sexy zandrei.
animalistic vicente.
debonaire marc.

Nakita rin namin ang mga Facebook friends naming sina Zandrei Merced, Vicente VJ Mendoza, Marc Dexter Macalintal, at marami pang iba.

Dumalo din at nakitsika that afternoon ang mabait na talent manager na si Leo Dominguez, with his friend Miss Reena Ejercito, ang movie scribe na si John Fontanilla, actor Richard Quan, teen actor Hero Magalona, at siyempre pa, ang unica hija ni Mother Lily Monteverde na si Miss Rochelle Monteverde.

May mga taga-channel two ‘pips’ din nu’ng hapon na yun sa audition. Ang dalawang finalists sa “Big Fat Loser” ng channel 2 ay naro’n din para mag-audition, may beauty queen finalist na nakisali rin, and some famous commercial models.

janna: "ayoko ng masikip!"
watchout for mhac!

Namangha na lang kami nang nasa actual audition part na si Janna. Inilabas talaga niya ang kanyang kagalingan sa pag-arte. Ang napili niyang linya ay ‘yung naging dialogue ni Maricel Soariano sa isang Regal movie na: “Ayoko ng masikip, ayoko ng mabaho, ayoko ng pangit!”

Si Mhac naman, kuwelang-kuwela sa mga chika babes na naroon. Panay ang pakikipag-biruan sa kanya ng mga magagandang tsikas na nandun sa audition na talaga namang nakyutan sa kanya. Maski si Mr. Shelfred na audition master ng Regal ay naaliw kay Mhac to the max!

Very important ang audition na ito dahil after so many years, ngayon lang ulit magtatayo ng Regal Babies ang number one na production outfit ng bansang Pinas. Ang Regal Films kasi ay masasabi mo nang isang institusyon sa history ng Philippine Cinema. Kaya hinding-hindi ito basta-basta mabubuwag ninuman! Mother Lily is still Mother Lily!

    Reviews about this merchant
    A cute name with equally cute products. Spinkie was a pleasant discovery at a recent Independence Day bazaar. True to the spirit of “babying in style”, the Spinkie line of pillow, blankets, bibs and more are made with designer fabrics so delicious, they’ll make any mommy’s mouth water!

    I received the Butterfly pillow from Spinkie in the mail today and I was so excited for my daughter to try it. She grabbed it as soon as she saw it and didn’t want to let go. She must have liked the cute owl pattern (in pink of course) and the soft material that felt like her former blankie. As I am writing this article, she is in her bed hugging it so that’s a good sign!

    Spinkie prides itself in impeccably handmade items for your little one. Every product is designed by Mutya Buensuceso, a relatively new mom who recently gave birth to her second child. 

    Mutya is inspired by motherhood is obvious when you first view her essential baby products. From the most adorable fabric and highest quality stitching to the ingenious ideas behind every Spinkie product, you can easily find a must-have for your child or that perfect gift for a new mom.

    The pillow itself was very cuddly due to its non-allergenic polyester fiberfill. I found the Spinkie Butterfly Pillow to be squishy enough to conform to my youngest daughter’s head but also firm enough to withstand the weight of my head. The wonderful thing about this pillow is that it is designed for every member of the family–from the smallest newborn to the parent! Whether you need an infant head and neck support, a tummy-time aide, or a neck rest for yourself when traveling, the Spinkie Butterfly Pillow is there for you!- (Go Graham Go)


i’ll follow the sun…

when i was walking down the street,

i felt the sun.

the rays penetrated my skin…

the heat sent me on a daze.

but i felt happy,

i felt good…

i saw the skies so clearly…

the clouds that moved

and watched me wherever i go.

i’ll follow the sun…

i know somehow that..

it will burn

me up

and the passion

will rage

on everylivingmind…


i’ll follow the sun.

i will dance with the earth,

play with the melody…

listen to the heavens

inside a room…

upon a bridge…

amidst a silver lining-

and towards




i will recite

a silent prayer

of  St. Francis de Assisi.

recall my youthful days at LSM.


i see…

LSM with LSGH…

a green and dashing sparkling

color of green.

that dances with


brown memory

of a Franciscan spirit.

the sun

will embrace



and our lives

will go on…

a look into: “the vow” takes you into the journey of your heart’s desire…

channing: one very great actor.

How many hearts should suffer with the egoistic notions of people?

How many lives must diminish just to please the pride of man?

How many souls must escape to shelter itself into the heart of one true loving man?

These are the questions we asked to ourself after we finished watching the movie- “The Vow”.  A movie that took us into a journey inside our heart’s desire. A movie that furthered answer our question: “Who am I?”

In life, you must really know what you like. You must discover your true freedom. And you must find shelter into the arms of ONE LOVING MAN.

A MAN who knows you fully well. Who’s willing to fight for you, take care of you, and still accept you amidst everything. Whatever untoward accidents or sudden tragic events, whatever change in the course of things, and whatever obstacles- this man would be there for you.

In the movie, actress Rachel McAdams’ character suffered from amnesia after an accident that involved her and her husband, portrayed by very handsome Channing Tatum in the movie. The hardest thing was: she couldn’t remember anything about her husband. What she only remembered was the earlier episode of her life that she had with her rich family and former executive boyfriend.

But Channing’s character never lost hope. He fought to win back his wife. But in the end, the wife just kept on drifting…,until Channing’s character eventually surrendered and moved-away from and transferred to a different city.

In the end, eventhough the wife never regained her memories with her  husband, she sought him. A nice quotation hidden from a book made her go back. She found him in the door of their favorite restaurant.

They walked in the middle of the night, and they bonded anew, and continued their life’s journey together.

The End.

"the vow": simple, touching, worth-remembering film...


The film was greatly acted by Channing Tatum. We couldn’t forget until now his “highlight” scene when he cried so magnetically inside the recording studio while playing his guitar and talking to a female friend… His tears in that scene were almost hidden, but you could feel so deep, in every words he said, in every feeling he revealed. You, too, would cry with him…

Channing’s acting style was subtle and subdued. But his manliness could bring you to glorious heights. His spirit magnified whenever the cinematographer captured his very handsome face.  And Channing wasn’t simply teasing. He was really deep into his craft as an actor.

The great supporting veteran stars in the film did so well, too. Miss Jessica Lange might have looked old in this film, but her beauty was still so visible in every scene. Mr. Sam Neill, who played the father of the wife in this film was so powerful and commanding. Excellent job.

The film was based on a true story. On one  real-life couple. They now have two kids.

Love do exist. “The Vow” never breaks….

As long as we hang-on… as long as we love that ONE PERSON…

janna tiangco: nang-agaw ng atensyon sa audition ng isang historical indie film!

janna: stole the hearts of theater and indie film actors in an audition!
janna: mesmerizing... captivating...
(article courtesy of: PINOY PARAZZI tabloid,
acknowledgements to MR. DANNY FLORES)
  Halos mapabagsak sa kanilang mga kinauupuan ang mga nagkikisigang mga theater actors and indie film actors na naro’n sa Kowloon House sa Tomas Morato Avenue para sa audition day ng isang new historical indie film- nang bigla nilang mabungaran ang pagpasok ng napakaganda at napakaseksing si Jana Tiangco! Hindi lang yun, halos malaglag pa silang lahat sa kanilang kinauupuan at maluwa ang mga mata. Biglang tumahimik ang lahat…, parang may isang anghel na pumasok at damang-dama ang sentro ng atraksyon ng lahat: si Janna. Napangiti rin ang supervising producer at talent manager ni Allen Dizon na si Dennis Evangelista sa kanyang nasaksihan. Maski na si Miss Byuti Veloso na isang production manager, super humanga sa kagandahan ni Janna ng hapon na iyon.
                                                             Nakasuot pa mandin kasi si Janna ng isang pulang trendy mini-skirt nung hapon na iyon. Ang baguhang aktres na ito, na unang nakilala sa indie film na “Bahay Bata” na isinali last year sa nagdaang Cinemalaya 2011 at nagwagi ng mga awards ay tunay namang pursigido na sa kanyang movie career this year. Medyo naglie-low kasi siya sa kalagitnaan ng taong 2011 (last year) dahil nag-concentrate muna siya sa kanyang studies. Pero napag-isip-isip niya, ang pag-arte nga at pagmo-modelo ang tunay niyang hilig. Kaya heto, she’s very cooperative na ngayon sa daddy niyang si Mr. July Tiangco na sumabak sa mga auditions, showbiz events at iba pa. Maga-audition din si Janna sa Regal Films bilang maging isang Regal Baby.
marcus tiangco: what a cutie!
                                                            Samantala, ang napaka-cute at napaka-guwapong younger brother ni Janna ay papasok na rin sa showbiz. Siya ay si Marcus Tiangco, a 16 year old guy na mahilig sa dancing and acting. Estudyante siya sa Systems Plus College at crush naman niya si Sarah Geronimo. Si Marcus ay hawig nina Rocco Nacino at Geoff Eigenmann. Very fresh, very cute.
                                                           “Okey naman po na mag-artista din ngayon ang brother ko”, nawika pa ni Janna sa writer na ito. “At least dalawa kaming sabay ngayon sa mga auditions at acting experiences. May kasa-kasama na ako. At alam ko po, hindi mo rin naman kami pababayaan, tito Robert Silverio na publicist namin at siyempre ng pinakamamahal naming daddy ko (Mr. July Tiangco). Naririyan kayo para gabayan kami.”

janna tiangco for 2012!


janna: the filipina beauty, unveils...decides...

Yes, it’s true. And now it can be told.

That Janna became quite hesitant last year to give showbiz a try…

She didn’t quite pursued it to the max because she wanted to go back to school, which she did…

Although she abled to do three movies last year- two indie films and one mainstream film- she somehow laid back for a while because she prioritized her studies…

But now, this year of 2012, Janna  Tiangco, finally decides to give showbiz a try!

With her whole-hearted decision, strong will and determination. With so much drive, optimism and willingness!

Just watchout. We won’t reveal yet what’s in store for this ‘Sip & Sip Pretty Woman’…

Just watchout… just watchout.

Jana Tiangco will soon make other female actresses uncomparable to her talents and beauty.

And they can eat their hearts out! Janna Tiangco in 2012!



“Never dull your shine for somebody else.” –Janna.
