BABY MIGGS IN HIS AWARD-WINNING PORTRAYAL AS A SPECIAL CHILD WITH A UNIQUE HITTING TALENT IN THE FILM “ASINTADO”

(foreword from Sssip: Totoo namang napakagaling na child actor ni baby Miggs namin, eh! Nu’ng panoorin namin siya sa mga unang pilot telecasts ng bagong teleseryeng Destiny Rose, na kung saan ay siya ang gumanap na batang Ken Chan na baklang lead character du’n sa nasabing teleserye, ilang beses niya kaming pinaiyak! Truly! Mas convincing pa ang pagganap ni Miggs keysa sa mga totoong baklang bata, kasi mas may angst ang isang tunay na lalaking bata na gumaganap sa papel na bakla. Totoo ‘yan. Napanood din namin siya sa Cinemalaya film na Asintado, at ang galing-galing talaga niya doon! Noon pa siya dapat nanalo sa pelikulang iyon! Ang hirap nu’ng character niya doon na medyo retardate na bata pero asintado sa larong Torador ng mga bata. WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU, BABY MIGGS!— “88”)*

Isa sa mga nagwagi sa naganap na 63rd Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Awards noong Linggo, September 20, ay ang Kapuso child actor na si Miggs Cuaderno. Nasungkit niya ang Best Child Performer award para sa kanyang pagganap sa pelikulang Asintado.

EARLY YEAR-ENDER: “SSSIP’S A.W.E.” BLOG’S TOP 25 BEST-DRESSED MALE ACTORS FOR THE YEAR 2013!

 

FOR MEN, IT SHOULDN’T BE EXTRAVAGANT, OUTRAGEOUS NOR OUTLANDISH. A MAN’S DRESS OUTFIT MUST BE SIMPLE BUT EXPRESSIVE. IT SHOULD LEAVE A DEEP STATEMENT. IT’S THE WAY THAT HE CARRIES HIS PANTS AND SHIRT THAT MATTERS, MUCH MORE, HOW HE TOTALLY FITS-IN WITH A JACKET OR A COAT. THAT’S MY MAN!

A COMBINATION OF RUGGEDNESS, NEATNESS AND ALL-OUT STYLE- THESE ARE THE THREE FACTORS THAT “SSSIP’S A.W.E.” BLOG CONSIDERED IN CHOOSING THE TOP 25 BEST-DRESSED MALE ACTORS IN THE PHILIPPINES.

OF COURSE, THEY SHOULD LEAVE A VIEWER SOMETHING MUCH DEEPER- AND THAT, A THOUGHT OR TWO OF TAKING THEIR CLOTHES-OFF? (HAHA.), … AND LINGERING IN YOUR SENSES THEIR INNERMOST FRAGNANT SMELL AS A MAN THAT YOU CAN TAKE HOME AND SHOW PROUDLY TO “MAMA”? (YAY!) 

IN-BETWEEN GOOGLE PICTURES, SHOWBIZ EVENTS, PARTIES, T.V. AND MOVIE APPEARANCES, WE’VE CHOSEN THESE 25 HANDSOME MALE MOVIE ACTORS AS THE “25 BEST-DRESSED FOR THE YEAR 2013″… AND THEY ARE THE PERSONAL CHOICES OF THIS BLOG, NOT TO BE CONTESTED OR QUESTIONED BY ANYONE! OK?

ENJOY, CHERISH AND HUG THEM. WE EXPECT MORE FROM THEM IN THE COMING YEAR! HERE THEY ARE:

1.) JASON ABALOS-

A blogger- (me, sssip*) saw him at the Cinema One closing film “Death March” only recently at Trinoma Cinema. He wore a beige jacket and a beige pants. Underneath was a tight-fitting sando that exuded much of his manliness and appeal. This boy has turned into a MAN. And that made him land as our no. 1 Best Dressed actor. Yummy!

mateo

2.) MATEO GUIDICELLI- 

He may not be tall, but the way he carried a coat and a formal pants is totally RUGGED. How did he do that? Well, that’s his style and that made him in on the no. 2 spot. Awesome!

aki
aki

3.) AKIHIRO BLANCO- 

This blogger has not met him yet in person- ‘coz that blogger preferred NOT TO.  A director of his film has even invited the blogger to spend time with him in a shoot. And Ms. Mocha Uson also promised to introduce that blogger to him. But the blogger HESITATED. Why? He may FALL. Haha, Based on the pictures alone, this handsome young man is totally a good dresser. Tempting!

4.) VINCE TANADA-

Need we say more? Whatever this lead star of the indie movie Otso wears, he leaves a profound statement. Whether clad in a fashionable sando and jeans, this new movie actor gives “good justice” to the clothes he wears. He leaves a very “papable” feeling to the viewer. Magnetic!

5.) DANIEL PADILLA-

His slim but sexy body is “to die for”. With that, he can carry his clothes so well. But he looked so totally in fashion in his last major solo concert early this year. And that made him land on the no. 5 spot. Alluring!

6.) MIGGS CUADERNO-

He may be a child, but he knows how to be a good dresser. Kudos to his good mom (not to his manager, sorry) for providing Miggs with a good couturier that shows this child’s good fashion sense. For sure, when he grows up, the more he’ll gonna be a fashionable and stylish man. Keep it up, baby Miggs. Cute!

7.) RONNIE LIANG-

His height, slimness and good poise plus stature is so magnificent to look at. He moves so simple and elegant, he is soft-spoken, humble and precise. What a man! A blogger personally met him in one high-society event, and he totally gave warmth and kindness to that blogger (me again, sssip*).  Give him a nice coat and shirt, he’ll totally fit-in well. And that made him land on the no. 7 spot! Captivating!

jm

8.) JM DE GUZMAN-

Who says JM is out? No way. This cool kid is definitely a good dresser, no matter what they say bad about him! Common’, don’t totally label him as a “drug-dependent” artist. he’s simply undergoing a phase. Still, his taste for clothes and the way he carries them is very noticeable. he is, indeed, a good dresser. Embracing!

rayver

9.) RAYVER CRUZ-

Totally awesome. he is tall, rugged and handsome. He looked better in formal clothes, though, and that’s where his innermost rugged appeal shows much. He is charming, too, and it adds a lot more appeal when he wears a coat and tie. Fascinating!

arnold
arnold

10.) ARNOLD REYES-

Yes, Arnold. You landed on the 10th spot. Simply because in all the showbiz functions you’ve attended within the year, you always leave a MARK. And what kind of mark? “Arnold Reyes was here and he wore a good clothes”. That’s it. Marvelous!

victor
victor

11.) VICTOR BASA-

He is a fashion model, by the way, before he joined the acting business. He looked so dashing at the premiere night this year of the movie Lauriana during the National Film Festival of the Master film directors. When he smiled that night to one blogger, the world melted. Aggravating!

enchong

12.) ENCHONG DEE-

A consistent best-dresser, that is, Mr. Enchong Dee. Whatever he wears, it looks outstanding on him. GRabeeee!!!

felix
felix

13.) FELIX ROCCO-

His shabby looks and moreno skin is a great attraction that adds appeal to his being a good dresser. But he looks better in trendy casual clothes that in a formal wear. And that made him different among the rest. To the maaaaxxxxx!

rocco
rocco

14.) ROCCO NACINO-

An angel already approved of Rocco being on this list. As he did a good job of portraying the role of St. Pedro Calungsod, very well, his being a fashionable handsome young man can never be questioned now. He always looks so neat everytime he wears a casual outfit attire. But oh my, he looks so great, too, in a formal wear. Wonderful!

billy

15.) BILLY JOE CRAWFORD-

Nikki Gil, sorry. But whatever is the reason… obviously, you say your best when you say nothing at all. And that’s how Billy Joe, too, carries his clothes. Hugs!

tom

chris

16.) TOM RODRIGUEZ-

A blogger (me again & again- sssip*) saw him back at the premiere night of Sapi to support director Brillante Mendoza. He looked totally terrific! His smiles were so sincere. And gosh, he carried his pants so well on that prem night that showed much of his “bulge”. Oh, my!

17.) CHRIS LIM-

This theater actor turned movie actor now, too (he also appeared in the movie Otso, as a corrupt hired man of a politician, and he looked so telegenic onscreen) is such a great dresser. In many private parties and events of Philippine Stagers Foundation, he could almost steal a glance away from the “main man” of PSF- Vince Tanada. He looks great in a blue short-sleeved polo shirt in one occasion. Nakakalokaahhhh!!!!

carlo
carlo

18.) CARLO CRUZ-

Simple, manly, tender. These are the great qualities of Mr. Carlo Cruz that blended so well with his good taste in casual clothes. I love you, Carlo. Heart-stealing!

alex

19.) ALEX VINCENT MEDINA-

During the Cinema One Originals Currents press conference, Alex Vincent stood-out among the rest as the Best Dressed actor on that occasion. He simply wore a great coat and that’s it! Terrific!

20.) LANCE RAYMUNDO-

Another consistent Best-Dresser. He is, indeed, a wonderful man. Whatever he wears- spells like F-U-N. Fun! And why? You would want to strip those clothes-off and make love to him. That’s how a good dresser he is. Kakainlab talagahhhhh!!!

paolo
paolo

21.) PAULO AVELINO-

Yes, yes, yes. We’ve almost forgotten about this great guy. He looks so appealing in tight-fitting shirts and pants that reveals the pattern of his muscular body and sexy but manly moves. Still among the best man that this blogger has ever met. Miss you, Pau. Naman!

richard
richard

22.) RICHARD YAP-

He is the only mature actor to be included in this list. His conservative appeal adds-up to his being a good dresser! Heavenly!

ruru

23.) RURU MADRID-

A blogger first saw him during the birthday party of one veteran film director (sorry, we forgot the name of that director) at the month of October this year. And he looked great! He is slim, but a white dress outfit did looked so great on him. Scene-stealing!

kristofer
kristofer

24.) KRISTOFFER MARTIN-

He simply wore a black shirt, a cap and a tight-fitting jeans on one occasion but it amazed one blogger! He exuded so much sexiness and sensousness as a young man. Overpowering!

joem
joem

25.) JOEM BASCON-

He always looks great on leather jackets. And those heavy, round thighs, nakakakiliiiiggg! A denim pants that’s so tight makes him- “an object of everyone’s sexual fantasies”. AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

And that’s it, folks. Hope you enjoyed MY LIST. More to come next year!— SSSIP*

Miggs Cuaderno in gma7’s “TROPANG POTCHI” every saturday 9am

Kailangang magkunwari paminsan-minsan para sa katotohanan ng buhay. Kailangang mag-assume ka ng isang “role o character” para hindi mahalata ang iyong tunay na “intensyon”. Kailangang maipagpatuloy ang mga adhikain… at mga pangarap.

Tulad ni Dr. Jose Rizal sa klasiko niyang mga librong Noli Me Tangere at El Filibusterismo, kailangang mag-assume ka ng isang kakaibang pagkatao upang mabuhay sa mundo.

At ito rin ang nakita ng isang blogger sa child actor na si Miggs Cuaderno, na napakaganda ng pagsuporta at pangangalaga ngayon ng Kapuso network sa kanyang acting career.

Si Miggs, sa paningin ng isang blogger, ay isang ANGHEL.

Oo, isa siyang anghel na bumaba sa lupa, isinilang sa mundo upang magbigay ng inspirasyon sa lahat. Iyan ang pagkatao na in-assume niya. At sa pag-aartista lamang niya maibibigay ang inspirasyon ‘yun, kasama ng pagpapasaya at  pagpapaligaya sa mga tao- kasama pa rin, sa muli,  ang angkin niyang kagalingan sa pagganap.

Sa nakaraang birthday bash ng mentor-manager ni Miggs na si direk Maryo J. delos Reyes, muli siyang nasilayan ng isang nagmamahal sa kanya. Kay likot-likot ni Miggs nu’ng gabi na ‘yon, panay ang ikot sa mga mesa at iba pang lugar ng Peppeton’s restaurant (located in Sct. Borromeo, Q.C.) na kung saan idinaos ang birthday bash ng pamosong direktor. Kasama ang iba pang mga child actors at child actresses din na pawang mga alaga ni direk, hayun at nagso-solicit sila ng mga cash donations para sa mga biktima ng lindol sa Bohol at Cebu. Kaya naman ang isang blogger ay nagmadaling dumukot sa kanyang bulsa ng 50 pesos PHp. para ibigay kay Miggs. Nagtaka naman ang blogger, dahil nu’ng si direk Maryo ang may hawak nung glass box na kung saan inilalagay ang cash donations, halos walang may gustong magbigay. Pero nu’ng si Miggs na, biglang napuno iyon at nag-agawan ang lahat sa pagbibigay. Haha!

Busy pa si Miggs kaya tumabi muna ang isang blogger sa kanyang ina, ama at elder sister sa aircon room area ng Peppeton’s. Maya-maya pa, nariyan na si Miggs at tumabi na sa kanyang “mommy” na blogger:

“Panay po ang mga tapings ko ngayon, tito Robert”, sey pa ni Miggs sa blogger na iyon. “Lagi po akong sinasali kasi ng channel 7 sa mga shows nila, kaya po tuwang-tuwa po ako kasi gusto ko po ‘yun, tito Robert… Gusto ko po kasing sumikat talaga…”

“Nag-taping na po ako sa pilot episode ng bago ko na namang TV show sa channel 7, ‘yung Sarap With The Family“, kuwentng dugtong ni Miggs. “Saya-saya po talaga.”

Pero ang lubos na ikinatuwa ni Miggs, kasama ang kanyang mabait na mommy na si Mrs. Judith Chua, hindi pala basta nawala ang karakter niya sa napakagandang teleseryeng Kahit Nasaan Ka Man, maski ba lumaki na siya doon at si Kristoffer Martin na ang gumaganap.

“Nag-taping po muli ako doon sa Kahit Nasaan Ka Man, tito Robert”, muling sabi ni Miggs sa blogger. “Kasi po, may mga flashback scenes po ule. Ako po muli ang gumanap na batang Kristofer Martin. Kaya nagkasama po muli kami ni tita Rita Avila, kasi siya ang mommy ko doon.”

Isang magaling na aktres si Rita Avila, baby Miggs. Ano ba ang pinapayo sa iyo ng tita Rita mo?

“Galingan ko pa daw po”, maagap na sagot ni Miggs. “Panay po ang bigay niya sa akin ng blessing kaya naman po lalo kong ginagalingan ang pag-arte ko. Saka sabi po ni tita Rita sa akin, matutulog daw po ako parati para tumangkad na po ako.”

Maliit at bata pa kasi si Miggs. He just turned 7 yrs. old. Pero tila kay bilis niyang lumaki…

“Ganu’n po ba?”, sagot ni Miggs. “Sige po, tito Robert, mas magpapatangkad pa po ako at mas magpapalaki para po sa inyo…”

Wala pa bang crush si Miggs ngayon?, huling tanong ng isang blogger.

“Naku po, wala po!”, pagwawakas na sagot ni Miggs. “Mga friends ko lang po sila. Wala pa po akong crush.”

Talaga lang, ha? Ayaw ni Ryzza Mae ng ganyan, ha. Joke lang, baby Miggs!

“ANG GITARA NI BABY MIGGS”

Isa na namang magandang obra-maestra ang nilikha ng magaling manunulat sa telebisyon na walang iba kundi si Suzette Doctolero. Sa pilot episode ng bagong teleserye ng channel 7 na “Kahit Nasaan Ka Man”, damang-dama mo na – na isa itong napakagandang teleserye ukol sa pagibig, pag-asa at musika. At tinitiyak namin, magiging isa na naman itong top-rater at magtatagal ng husto sa pananatili sa ere.

Dapat lang sigurong lagi nilang ipapakita ang batang aktor na si Miggs Cuaderno sa mga flashback scenes sa mga future episodes ng programa, dahil sadyang may simbolismong pinapakita ang batang aktor at ang katauhan niya sa istorya ng teleseryeng ito.

Sa pilot episode pa lamang ng programa, si “baby” Miggs na ang nagdala ng programa. Mapang-hamon ang bawat eksena niya sa pilot episode na ‘yun at nagmapanan niya ng buong husay. Si Miggs bale ang ‘batang Kristoffer Martin’ sa programang ito. At napaka-importante ng mga karanasang pinagdaanan niya nu’ng bata pa siya para mai-konek sa pangkasalukuyang istorya at mga pangyayari sa bagong teleseryeng ito.

Bukod kay Miggs, kahanga-hanga rin ang naging portrayal ng aktres na si Rita Avila sa pilot episode. Siya ang gumanap na ina ni Miggs (na kapag binata na ay si Kristofer martin na). Iniwan ng karakter ni Rita ang anak niya. Nawala na lang siya ng sukat. At kinailangang mabuhay ng mag-isa ni Miggs, ng na-iisa. Nauna rito ay namatay rin ang kanyang ama (na magaling ding ginampanan ni Eppy Quizon) sa isang trahedyang pangyayari na kung saan ay napatay ito habang lumalaban sa mga nagde-demolish sa kanilang mga tahanan sa isang lugar ng squatter’s area. Ang matindi pa rito,tinanggap ng ina ni Miggs ang “kabayaran” sa kanyang bangkay. Kaya hindi na nila naiburol pa ito ng marangal.

Tila nawala na sa sarili ang ina ng karakter ni Miggs. Naghanap pa sila ng mga trabaho, nguni’t sila’y tinatanggihan.

Sa kanyang pag-iisa, ang tanging naging karamay na lamang ni Miggs ay ang kanyang GITARA. At ang MUSIKA.

Sa mga pagbabalik-gunita niya nu’ng nabubuhay pa ang kanyang ama, ito ang nagturo sa kanya upang kumanta at tumugtog ng gitara. Dito lamang siya nakadarama ng kaligayahan at katiwasayan ng damdamin. Ito ang kanyang buhay.

Nguni’t isang araw na gutom na gutom si Miggs, naipagbili niya ang kanyang gitara sa halagang isandaang piso lamang at isang pananghalian. Kailangan kasi niyang maitawid ang kanyang sikmura. Kailangan niyang mag-“survive”.

Maibabalik pa kaya muli ang GITARA ni Miggs?

Oo. dahil ipinakita na sa pilot telecast na ‘yun ang pag-appear ng “grown-up” character ni Miggs na si Kristofer Martin. Siya ang nagkukuwento ng mga pangyayari sa buhay niya nuong bata pa siya. Isang istoryang totoong nagaganap sa bawat nilalang… Dahil marami-rami na rin kaming naririnig na mga kuwentong tulad nito sa mga tunay na tao, mga kakilala at mga kaibigan. Kaya hindi ito isang “fairy-tale” lamang.

Another “goldmine” from channel 7 for having this new teleserye that will touch everyone’s heart-

FOREVERMORE.

“bamboo flowers”: simple lives, simple joys… and hidden dreams

 

farmers

Two boys who lost their fathers…

Two lovers who shared their dreams together…

A young man in the prime of his existence…

And, a land that captivated their hearts.

These are the major factors why one adult man in the crossroads of eternity cried silently after watching the film Bamboo Flowers that happened during the premiere night of the said indie movie (last September 8, 2013 at the SM Megamall Cinema).

He walked past the sudden looks and silent questions, as if asking why he was hurriedly leaving the cinema house of a mega mall at the very end of the film.

He walked past the boulevards and journeyed via a bus ride, until finally reaching the comfort of his bed.

And there, he cried again. Reminiscing the scenes he saw in the said great movie. Wondering why life had to be “realistic” and why dreams had to be “unreal”.

In the movie Bamboo Flowers, it was clearly presented, but the answers were embraced.

Director Maryo J. delos Reyes chose a movie subject that was very near to his heart. And one of his closest friends (this blogger) certainly knew that. 

He chose a major character depicting some stories within his vibrant past. And a “hidden boy” that was him right from the very start.

And the Bamboo Flowers that symbolized a LIFE, will forever be grasped…

FAST-FORWARD:

This blogger almost saw “someone” in person of Ruru Madrid, a young actor who was the central character of the movie. With his hair that’s almost exactly the same cut of hair of that someone he often saw… in dreams.

And he RESEMBLED “him”, even in the way he sang, and the way he danced. It was almost like HIM.

And a blogger couldn’t help but cry. It’s as if he was seeing a new movie with that ‘someone’ in his mind. And that made him feeling so enthralled…

He once dreamed of the two of them paddling a little boat in a clear river… but that was a dream… and that dream came true when he saw this beautiful movie entitled Bamboo Flowers.

He knew how much he loved his dad… And he, too, cried a lot, when he left his dad to go to a very ‘distinct’ place far-away.

That alone made his friend almost faint while watching the film. He wanted to walk-out of the cinema, but he couldn’t… he had to finish the movie.

The essence of this movie was the humble portrayal of that young actor named Ruru Madrid. In his eyes, you could feel the dream of a young man. In his gestures, you could feel the hope… and in his cries, you could feel the beauty of a lonely existence.

Maxi Collins who portrayed the girlfriend of a marine student-farmer was so great in this film, and as her eyes spoke, it would penetrate your soft nature.

Orlando Sol as the young marine student who chose to be a farmer in the end was the most wonderful young man to be in a movie like this. He was so perfect for the role. And in one of his major highlight scenes in the movie, wherein he got drunk and blamed himself for all the failures in the family- as he boxed the banana tree and cried and stumbled- indeed, was an amazing kind of intense acting. It was obvious that he’s greatly motivated by his character.

Miggs Cuaderno, who portrayed the role of a young provinciano boy, was so candid, so cute and so lovable in this movie. He exuded great charm all-throughout the film.

Ms. Mylene Dizon  and Mr. Leandro Baldemor who portrayed the parents of a young and “moody” boy from Manila (portrayed with good intensity by another child actor Yogo Singh) were the most precious adult performers of the film. Ms. Dizon exuded strength of a good woman character and Mr. Baldemor’s brief flashback scenes were so magnifying.

But there was another adult actor in the movie that acted so naturally but so powerfully in this movie. His name was Mr. Gino Antonio, as he portrayed the farmer-father of the character of Orlando Sol in this film.

In one scene of Orlando and Gino together at the top of a mountain, it almost made everybody who watched the film on that very night- cried like a river. As they all fell silent. It was executed in a very personal way, and the feeling went so deep…

FAST CUT TO:

How beautiful was Bohol province in this film. With fast shots of the Chocolate Hills, the “almost-extinct” Philippine Tarsier, the Loboc river and of course, the  regional Visayan people as seen in this film- with their great unity and camaraderie- and the bondage of their family life…. You’d feel, life would never be as beautiful as this.

What united a land was the eternal love of its old dwellers to its younger people…

The freedom they all shared- in their simple lives and simple joys.

But when hidden dreams were revealed and exposed-

Life would never be the same…

Just like FOREVER.

Papel ng isang batang may sakit na muscular scoliosis ang ginampanan ni baby Miggs Cuaderno sa susunod na episode ng top-rating TV drama program ng GMA Channel 7 na Magpakailanman.

Sa Davao City pa sila nag-taping ng nasabing episode na ukol sa buhay ng isang letter-sender sa programa na si Gloria Garrido. Pinamagatan itong Gloria Garrido Story and take note, talagang nakakabagbag-damdamin ang performance ni baby Miggs sa nasabing TV program! Lahat ng kapwa niya artista ay napapaiyak na kapag umaarte na siya sa harap ng kamera.

Bale sa episode na ‘yun, tila naman ata pinagtaksilan ng tadhana ang naging buhay ni Gloria Garrido. Tatlo sa mga anak niya ang nagkaroon ng sakit na “muscular scoliosis”! Magmula sa panganay (na ginampanan ni Enzo Pineda), sa pangalawang babaeng anak (na ginampanan ni Janine Guttierez na anak ni Lotlot de Leon in real life at apo rin ni Piita Corrales ) at sa bunso, na ginampanan naman ni Miggs.

Si Ms. Chanda Romero ang gumanap na Gloria Garrido at ang beteranong aktor naman na si Rez Cortez ang gumanap na ama nina baby Miggs at asawa ni Chanda.

Hangang-hanga si direk Adolf Alix, Jr. sa acting ability ni baby Miggs. Sadya palang pinahanap ni direk Adolf si baby Miggs na gumanap sa papel na ‘yun dahil magmula nung mapanood niya si baby Miggs sa dalawang Cinemalaya indie films nito na Quick Change at Purok 7 ay sadyang humanga na siya sa bata.

Incidentally, hindi alam ni baby Miggs na na-nominate pala siya sa nagdaang Cinemalaya awards bilang Best Supporting Actor. Nalaman na lamang niya ito nang isulat ng “Pep.Ph” writer na si Ruel J. Mendoza na isa pala si Miggs sa mga naging nominees doon. Kaya lalong nag-boost ngayon ang confidence ng bata.

Meanwhile, nai-release na sa “YouTube.Com” ang official trailer ng pelikulang Bamboo Flowers, ang next big movie ni baby Miggs na inaabangan na ng lahat. Ito ay entry sa darating na National Film Festival (All Masters Edition) ng Sineng Pambansa. Mula ito sa direksyon ng kanyang mentor at tatay-tatayan na si direk Maryo J. delos Reyes.

a personal note from robert manuguid silverio (taken from his facebook status):

“Late ako dumating sa press conference ng pelikulang Bamboo Flowers na ginanap sa Annabel’s restaurant kasi may mga nanghaharang sa pagpunta ko ru’n at mga nang-iintriga. But I took my greatest guts to attend the presscon because of baby Miggs Cuaderno, at buti na lang inabot ko ang napakagandang trailer ng pelikula na inulit i-play ni direk Maryo J. Delos Reyes para sa mga latecomers. What I saw was a great cinematic film trailer and i almost cried watching it! Napapalakpak ako sa paghanga! Another masterpiece from direk Maryo j… I assure everyone! Lalaban ang pelikulang Bamboo Flowers, tulad ng pelikula niyang Magnifico noon na lumibot pa sa iba’t-ibang bansa at nakakuha ng maraming international film awards. Kapuna-puna rin si Miggs Cuaderno sa trailer ng pelikulang ito. Watch this film on Sept.11 sa pagbubukas ng Sineng Pambansa’s National Film Festival (All Masters Edition), sponsored by the Film Development Council of the Philippines!”
