STING: Back to Bass



Anyone here doesn't know Sting? I'm pretty sure that my generation listened to his songs while growing up. His most memorable song for me is "Every Breath You Take" and all these years, he has contributed many valuable things for the music industry and even in charitable causes. That's why I'm excited for his Back to Bass Tour this December 9, now moved at the Araneta Coliseum.

Centerstage Opens its New Home at SM Mall of Asia

Let's sing the night away at Centerstage KTV - MOA
I love KTV! If you're frequent to my Facebook wall, you would notice how many Starmaker competitions I've tried in my life. So when I found out the Centerstage KTV is opening at SM Mall of Asia, I accepted the invitation and even tried to join their first Centerstage Idol Challenge. 

But before telling about the contest, let me introduce you to my (now) favorite place in the world, the Centerstage KTV. Opening its third branch (after Timog and Jupiter, Makati), they have been a home for inspiring divas and rock stars since 2007. What I loved about their KTV rooms are how spacious and comfy they are. Adding the best KTV sound system in the market, you will surely feel like a true blue singer (if you still aren’t) inside Centerstage.

Forbidden City: Chernobyl Diaries



SM Cinexclusive brings us Chernobyl Diaries this November for a fright and a half. Last Monday, we were invited to the Advance Screening to this terrifying movie, brought by the creator of the Paranormal Activity films.

Chernobyl Diaries is an American flick about six tourists who wanted to experience an extreme adventure. Abandoned for more than 25 years, Uri, the tour guide, takes them to the city of Pripyat, the former dwelling of the workers of the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor. Before their adventure started, Ukranian guards have already forbidden them to enter the city due to unmentioned problems, but went through the guided trip via a special entrance.

Will Top Senatoriable Chiz Escudero Be Re-elected This 2013?

Vote Wisely! (Photo Credits: http://www.gophoto.it
I am not a person who dwells too much about politics. But I am always vocal about who I want and do not want to vote. I base my decision on their platform, and what they can do to help the country, regardless how big or small it is. Three years ago, I said that I voted for Adel Tamano. Sadly, he didn’t win, but now, I am thinking of including one of the most popular senators who is up for re-election, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero.

To Pop This Pill or Not?


Headaches are THE WORST! Whenever I feel something bad, I always have this need to take a pill just to stop it and go on with my life. One of my officemates would even take a leave when her migraine occurs. So as I "googled" the best pill to take, I happened to see the Saridon commercial above. I thought it was real funny, yet very violent, especially for children. But if that ad could amuse, and invite me to try their product, then I could be one of its "markets". 

Apparently, Ms. Janette Toral's article on Drug Safety had me on a complete halt from popping this pill. Based from http://saridon.thefilipinodoctor.com/faq.php, the ingredients of Saridon consists of 250mg Paracetamol, 150mg Propyphenazone and 50mg  Caffeine. And while I adore caffeine and its products such as coffee, I can't help but get worried about the Propyphenazone content in the drug. 

Even in its Wiki definition, Propyphenazone and even Saridon is already banned in other countries. What I could not understand is how they can get away with selling the product, without prescription necessary, amidst the fact that its causing health related problems already.

My Mom, who is a nurse, refers to MIMS if she needs a certain drug. According to its page, Propyphenazone's drug reaction includes hypersensitivity reactions; nephrotoxicity, nausea, drowsiness, coma and convulsions on large doses. Would you want to have your headache gone, only to be replaced with these side effects? I know I don't!

I hope the the Department of Health and its manufacturer, Bayer would regulate drugs like Saridon. Or even answer as to why its cheaper and easily bought in spite of its side effects. After all, we would want to lessen the pain, instead of triggering another one that would blow up to our face so easily.
