Will Josef Elizalde make a voluntary exit?

Will the Lethal Lasallite leave the PBB house?

After garnering 49% of votes among the other nominated housemates last nomination night, meaning, having a huge number of fans among his four other competitors; 16-year old Josef Elizalde announced yesterday that he's having a voluntary exit due to her auntie, who couldn't make up with the sleeping habits inside the house.

Since according to Big Brother, the guardian's housemate will be affected if the guardian decides to leave the house; Josef Elizalde will then be "forced" to be evicted due to PBB house policies.

For Josef aficionados, it's never new to us that he really wanted to become a celebrity, as he have tried several modeling careers just so to be discovered by the public televiewers as well as the cameras. We have seen him on Chippy Commercial, and now, he's making a big leap inside the PBB house, being one of the 'populars' for his good looks, sense of humor and witty attitude.

Will Josef Elizalde finally give up his dream just for his aunt? Wouldn't he fight for his right to stay inside the house? Will the PBB's rating be affected? We'll find out on Saturday night so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, here's an exclusive interview of Josef Elizalde... Got this from YouTube. Enjoy!

PBB Updates: who's who between Kevin and Linda?

Will it be the Bikini Babe? or the Spanish Stallion?

Seems both of them are portraying disapproving attitudes inside the house--according to most housemates. But according to polls, surveys and websites; most PBB fans are having a hard time who's who between the two. Both have good looks and are blessed with foreign breeds (which is considered a plus; but definitely not a basis for our votes.

16-year old Linda Backlund still has to fix the 'misunderstanding' between her mom and dad; while 18-year old Kevin Garcia, along with his dad John are doing all the efforts to earn money just for Kevin's sport (horse riding). His parents are also separated, but unlike Linda's parents; both are supporting Kevin in all his needs. Moreover, we still have to know more about Linda and Kevin; but for us to vote wisely, I should say that we must know their purpose in joining the show and weighing all the reasons.

So, who do you think will stay? Is it the Bikini Babe or the Spanish Stallion? The answer is in your votes. Vote wisely.

Some helpful tips for penniless tourists on how to survive Baguio

I will be accompanying my mom on our way to Baguio next week. We always spend our summer vacation there while mommy is busy with her summer session office works. I just wonder how to spend those seven long weeks in Baguio being broke and alone. The city of Pines is such a nice place with those unusual huge sunflowers and the cold climate. However, you can’t afford to enjoy it if you literally can’t afford with those strawberries and other stuffs there.

On the other hand, I would prefer much to get lost in Baguio despite being penniless than to couch on my sofa and watch TV at home all day. As an old cliché would say it, money can’t buy happiness—and that small city, combined with your adventurer spirit is all worth it!

Meanwhile, as I think about my sole plans for that week, here are some suggestive tips on how to survive being broke in Baguio.

· Having a jacket, a pair of rubber shoes and the camera phone is all what it takes to enjoy your stay. Start your journey at the heart of Baguio—the Session Road with a row of business estabs which includes restaurants, bookstores, etcetera; plus, buy unique and cheap love potions sold by Igorots.

· Go to St. Scholastica’s Healing Garden for meditation.

· Of course, the beautiful Burnham Park. It’s best to jog around there in mornings. Biking costs only 40 pesos or less.

· Take pictures of the beautiful flowers in Botanical Garden. For your info, Baguio is the home to the fully bloomed flowers. That’s why they celebrate Panagbenga Festival during February.

· Enjoy the pre-war interior of The Laperal House.

· Kneel and pray at the Pink Sisters. (There was a time when I was a child that I picked up the white stones there and brought it home as a souvenir of my stay there. Very funny, but I suggest doing the same will make you feel nostalgic later).

· For environmental tour, go to Maryknoll’s Cosmic Journey (along Campo Sioco Road). It’s a very beautiful place so take pictures.

· At night, enjoy the scenic view of SM Baguio (which looks more of a Chinese mansion erected at the top of the mountain. Very beautiful).

· Feel like you’re on top of the world at the Mines’ View Park

· Walk along Kennon road and find out the secret caves there.

Who says you have to take the cab and have extra-money for you to get all there? Just walk. Burning those fats is very easy co’z you won’t battle with the Sun’s scorching heat. Besides, Baguio is a small place but there’s still a lot more to find out. Walk around to discover the adventure and I assure you, you won’t get lost.

Happy summer vacation to all!

Is Faith Hill pregnant... or she just needs a new stylist?

Last CMT Awards, international singer and Hollywood actress Faith Hill showed up wearing a terrible outfit.

Wearing that all glimmering black with a loose top, she looked like a walking garbage bag; critics say. Worst is that she wore it in public to an awards show.

Also in the past week, she was wearing an orange ‘very’ flowing top with the same black skinny slacks and black heels at an event in New Orleans.

Whether she’s trying to cover that baby bump or she just needs a new stylist, there must be some reason behind it.

But good thing though, we have acquired this ‘not-so-new’ secret in covering those bellies.

Cameron Diaz: surfing for a better shape

Despite being in mid-thirties, Cameron Diaz is surely getting in better shape. And she thought that her body have improved more today than in her mid-twenties.

The secret? It’s in the benefits of surfing.

This Charlie’s Angel had discovered this new sport and been hooked into it since then while filming the movie.

‘As a kid, I was athletic. But after Charlie’s Angels, I became physically strong. I did realize you could do that and it was really great. I think once you give yourself to that, it’s hard to let go.”

As a Hollywood actress, part of her job was to maintain that curvaceous figure, and that was where she’s in.

The 35-year old Cameron Diaz revealed that her secret in getting in better shape is not just following those strict dos and don’ts of dieting and surfing. The real secret is being appreciative in all things.

“I bathe, I work out, I drink lots of water, I eat healthy. I try to get as much sleep as I can—I love life, I want to be active, I have wonderful friends, I have a wonderful family. I think the best beauty secret is appreciation. If you appreciate everything that you have, that gives you certain quality that can be perceived as beauty”

Currenly, she's contented being single. Click this to know more updates about her.

Fergie is one proud Latina!

Stop all the speculating. Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie is indeed a Latina.

Fergie tells in Latina magazine that she has a Mexican ancestry. His Dad’s grandmother was born in Guanajuato. “I’m very proud of it; that’s probably where I get my fire”

However, the mag asks her why her being Latina is not so obvious. Fergie answers “I don’t go claiming it big time because there are more fully-bred Latinas out there to represent”.

To sum up; even though it’s just her dad’s grandma, Fergie is really one proud Latina.

Paris Hilton: a replica of her best friend?

They’re best of friends forever—from good times to bad times. But does that mean copying your best friend’s every move—from having a steady boyfriend to family planning?

This ‘Simple Life’ star who accompanied her Good Charlotte boyfriend Benji Madden on tour—wants to follow best friend’s Nicole Richie’s footsteps by settling down and starting a family.

Nicole, who is engaged to Joel (Benji’s brother and bandmate) is said to have accused Paris of copying her every move.

According to sources, Nicole was already upset when Paris started dating Benji. It all happened too fast. However, Nicole didn’t go on tour with them because she was looking after her young daughter.

Moreover, Paris revealed last year she was preparing her body for it to be on good condition to conceive.

“I want kids next year, so I’ve got to ready my body” noted the actress.

Simon Cowell Donates in Idol Gives Back

He’s strict and sarcastic on TV. He’s not generous in giving praises. And to most Americans, he’s the worst American Idol judge among them.

But when the lights are off and behind those camera scenes, Simon Cowell has a generous heart after all especially when it comes to charity. After seeing first-hand children in extremely indigent conditions while traveling to Africa and touring sites in the US last year as part of the inaugural Idol Gives Back campaign, he donated his paycheck right away and had no hesitations in donating his paycheck again this year.

According to other sources, our very own Ramielle Malubay also confirmed Cowell’s being kindhearted for giving her his shoulders after being eliminated in the show.

Charities receiving donations as part of this year’s Idol Gives Back include: The Children’s Defense Fund, Children’s Health Fund, The Global Fund, Make it Right, Malaria No More, and Save the Children.

David Archuleta: will he be the next American Idol?

After Jordin Sparks, who made history as the youngest American Idol without being at stake in the bottom three, will David Archuleta, Season 7's contestant be the next on her footsteps?

With the succeeding weeks, he haven't been in the bottom three along with David Cook, his closest rival. But being the youngest among them, this 17-year old singer is definitely making his way to stardom.

Here are some facts about David Archuleta from American Idol 2008

  • His hometown is in Murray, UT and he auditioned in San Diego, California
  • His favorite quote: "You'll never be lonely if you befriend yourself"
  • Musical influences are: Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Kirk Franklin and Bryan Adams
  • His inspirations so far are his faith and family
  • He sang on the several episodes of the television show Star Search and went on to win the season finale with $100, 000 grand prize.
  • Inspired by the Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Video he was watching, he began pursuing his singing career at the age six.
  • He started performing as an entertainer at ten when he participated in the Utah Talent Competition with the song piece "I Will Always Love You" by Dolly Parton where he received a standing ovation and first place in the kids division.
  • Currently, his fans are dubbed as "The Archies" or "Arch Angels".
When asked about his edge among the contestants, he noted "by being who I am and loving what I'm doing". Whether this matinee American Idol contestant will make it to the top or not, surely, we will never forget his song piece "Imagine" which brought tears to Paula Abdul's eyes as well as to the American televiewers. So far, this, I think is the most outstanding performance among his other 'best' performances' in the show. I just hope he'll make it among the rest so he'll reach more people's hearts with his angelic and soulful voice.

Forbidden Kingdom to Helm the Theaters on April 18

In Theaters: April 18, 2008
Starring: Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Michael Arangano
Director: Robert Minkoff

After the successful wide release of Horton Hears a Who (which is perceived to be the highest-grossing film in 2008), here comes another action-packed film directed by Robert Minkoff who also directed films such as Stuart Little Films, Haunted Mansion and The Lion King.

The Forbidden Kingdom is a back-to-back collaboration between martial arts veterans Jackie Chan and Jet Li, the first ever tandem and probably the last one. The story tells about American teenager Jason (Arangano) who finds an antique rod in the pawnshop--the legendary stick weapon owned by a Chinese sage and warrior Monkey King (Li). With the lost relic in his hand, he unexpectedly finds himself transported back to Ancient China where he meets several kung fu masters who will lead him on his quest to return the relic to its rightful owner, the Monkey King--imprisoned in stone for almost five centuries. Along the way, he discovers the value of honor, loyalty, friendship and the true meaning of kung fu and thus frees himself into his time.

What makes the story most anticipating for me is its simplicity but complicated circumstances which gives highlight to the characters and to the adventure. It gives more excitement not just of its perfect casting, but also of its great narration. More than the foretaste it gives because of the first-ever tandem by kungfu movie gurus, this blockbuster is certainly a five-star.
