Vic Sotto still the undisputed box-office king

December 29, 2009

VIC Sotto is really the undisputed box-office king of the Metro Manila Film Festival. In the tradition of all his past entries, his “Ang Darling Kong Aswang” opposite Cristine Reyes is currently in a neck-to-neck battle with Sen. Bong Revilla’s “Ang Panday” for the top spot.

When all the entries opened on Christmas day, “Ang Panday” slightly edged “Ang Darling Kong Aswang” but based on its two-day total gross, the tables were turned as the latter now occupies the number one position in the box-office race. It’s really a tight bout for the top between the two visual effects-filled entries.

While it’s still early to determine the festival top grosser, it’s always the case that Vic’s annual entry is always in strong contention like “Ang Darling Kong Aswang.”

Noynoy Aquino belies rumors of ill health

December 29, 2009

MANILA, Philippines—He’s not sick, not even tired, just very busy.

Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III has shrugged off speculation that the rigors of preparing for next year’s election campaign have taken a toll on his health.

Aquino said he was fit to take on a nationwide campaign beginning February, adding that his rivals should change their tactics and stop making up stories about his supposedly failing health if they intend to catch up to him in the surveys.

“Yes I’ve got a cold but a lot of people I know have it because of the weather. If I were them (his opponents), I’d stop spreading these rumors because I won’t quit,” said Aquino who boasts a commanding lead in the surveys along with his running mate, Sen. Mar Roxas.

The state of Aquino’s health has been the subject of speculation the past few months due to his absence at rallies and other forums and his supposedly sickly appearance.

December 29, 2009

Nagpapasalamat si Katrina Halili sa patuloy na suportang natatanggap sa mga kaibigan at higit sa lahat sa GMA-7 sa patuloy na pagbibigay ng network sa show.

Dahil sa moral support ng mga kaibigan at ng kanyang mother studio, mas lalong lumakas ang loob ni Katrina na ipagpatuloy ang kanyang ipinaglalaban.

Ibinalita ng aktres na tuloy pa rin ang hearing ng kasong libel na inihain niya laban sa mother ni Hayden Kho.

At tila uusad na rin ang kaso laban sa uploading ng videos, na ayon sa aming natanggap na tsika, may 10 pangalan na raw ang lumabas at kasalukuyang inim-bestigahan sa kasong illegal uploading ng sex video ni Hayden.

December 29, 2009

Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Gov. Zaldy Ampatuan has an airtight alibi that could get him off the hook in the mass murder charges: President Arroyo.

He cited in his affidavit that on the day of the multiple murders, he was in Malacañang meeting with Arroyo herself.

Reports on the day the Maguindanao massacre broke also had then presidential adviser on political affairs Secretary Gabriel Claudio confirming that the Ampatuans were in Malacañang at a meeting with the President.

Alibis ranging from a medical mission to a personal audience with the President can be found in the counter-affidavits of the four Ampatuan clan members who had opted to answer the multiple murder charges against them for their alleged involvement in the Nov. 23, 2009 murders in Maguindanao, where some 59 civilians, among whom were some 30 journalists, were massacred, allegedly on orders of Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr.

SWS: Pres. Gloria Arroyo retains most rejected title with net negative 38

December 29, 2009

The dismal perception among the public on President Arroyo’s effectivity continued during the final quarter of the year as she received a net rating of negative 38 as a result of 23 percent respondents expressing satis-faction on her performance against an overwhelming 61 percent stating dissatisfaction, the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.

Arroyo’s latest rating was unchanged from a net negative 38 (23 percent satisfied vs 62 percent dissatisfied) in the last immediate survey held in September.

With the latest rating, Arroyo retained her distinction as being the most rejected president since the assumption of former President Corazon Aquino when SWS started conducting the periodic polls. SWS data, in fact, showed only Arroyo was the first to incur net negative ranking in the survey, the worst being at negative 50 in the July 2008 survey.
