It’s Earth Hour 24/7 at GMA Network


On 31 March 2012, between 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, the islands of the Philippines are set to go dark – all in the name of saving energy and keeping the planet green.

This, in a nutshell, is what Earth Hour is all about.

Every year, GMA Network aligns with WWF Philippines to help celebrate this global event. The lights of the Network’s headquarters in Quezon City go off during the annual Switch Off event. In 2011, GMA 7 had an expanded participation, so to speak, as its originating stations in various provinces also had their lights turned off for 60 minutes in commemoration of Earth Hour.

"Astig ka pag Men's Health Ka! "  This is the proud and fulfilled statement of ABS-CBN actor Enchong Dee when I asked him during on what he feels on being a cover for Men's Health the second time around.

In the press launch of Men's Health summer April issue, which he is a cover, Enchong revealed that he once had a chat with another actor and the latter said that it's his dream to pose for the cover of Men's Health.  And with Enchong doing this the second time around, this guy is one lucky young man!  :)  "Parang status symbol na sya pag Men's Health cover ka.  Proud ako na kinuha nila ulit ako (Posing for Men's Health is like a status symbol.  Am proud that they got me again), explained Enchong.

ABS-CBN Prepares Holy Week Programs to Inspire Filipino Viewers


What's your plan for Holy Week?  Are you going out of town or are you staying home?  As more and more Filipinos go out of town for vacation, I believe many of us still prefer staying at home (or visit our hometown and stay with our folks).  And for the home bound peeps, they look for things to do during idle time.  Some stock DVDs while others look for things to watch on TV.  And gladly, our TV stations have felt this need and year on year, have been providing service to us by providing programs suitable for the season.  And this is what ABS-CBN has prepared again this time to inspire the Filipino viewers during the observance of this coming Holy Week. 

Manila Archbishop Chito Tagle

Reflect and be inspired this Holy Week as ABS-CBN airs some of its heartwarming specials, dramas and Star Cinema movies, and best documentaries beginning on Maundy Thursday (April 25) until Good Friday (April 26).

Child abandonment and military 'abuses' on Reporter's Notebook tonight, March 27


In the middle of the night, , a security camera captures a disheartening scene: a young woman leaves her child by the doorstep of someone else's home. After some inquiry, authorities tracked down her whereabouts. When asked why she abandoned her child, she said that she did not have the means to raise the child properly adding that if she only had a choice, she would have done otherwise.

This Tuesday, GMA's award-winning documentary program Reporter's Notebook will discuss the problem of child abandonment and what really drives many "unprepared" moms to desert their children. Are poverty and emotional inadequacy the culprits, or are all these just an excuse to evade the responsibility of being a mom?



As the title indicates, Warner Bros.' new, 3D fantasy adventure “Wrath of the Titans” called forth some mammoth and mythical adversaries to pit against the demigod Perseus (Sam Worthington).

The Kronos

These include the multi-headed Chimera, three one-eyed Cyclops and an army of double-bodied Makhai. Perseus' most formidable opponent is, of course, Kronos, the gargantuan, heretofore imprisoned Titan and father of Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston), who is on the verge of breaking free and bringing hell down on the earth.
