Infinity. A celebration of the Golden Life of Francis M. Part 2

I've been a fan of the Magalona fam since early college days. I always read Saab's blog through her blog spot platform back then. She was also my inspiration why I started blogging way back 2005. Her creativity and undeniably entertaining writing skill always make me wanna read her online diary. 
I attended their family tribute to Francis M last October 4 at SM Aura Samsung hall. There were great line up of performers.  
I think Saab's band, Cheats performed around 11 pm. I was surprised with their smooth and pleasant music. Hahaha! I don't check their YouTube account eh. 
They were really entertaining. I wish I do know the lyrics of their songs. Must make time to check out their music online.
After their performance I left the hall and went straight home. I didn't wait for Gloc-9's performance 'cos I've seen him performed at Candymag's fair years ago already.

With you being constantly on-the-go, attending to various events, seminars, and other interesting adventures—you will need a compact camera that despite its size does not compromise on the quality of photos it provides you.  On the 20th of September, Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc. will be participating in the biggest blogging event in the country, Blogapalooza.

Get delighted and be one of the lucky participants to bring home a Canon photo journal, as well as other premium items – all these and more, when you decide to #ishootwithCanon!


When the lighting, composition, and everything else just seems to be working perfectly together, then that photo you took is just too good to have to wait any longer to share with all your friends on social media. Be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – you name the network, and Canon can easily make the whole process of transferring and uploading a whole lot simpler and faster for you.
Canon presents the CameraWindow App and CanoniMage Gateway, both designed for your photo and video sharing demands. With the array of photos we see on social media, yours doesn’t have to wait a second longer to be part of it.

It is an application that lets you transfer loads of photos to your smart device with an ease. All you have to do is download the application to your compatible iOS or Android device, and start transferring those memories!
But transferring those great shots is not the only thing this application has made easier for you. With CameraWindow, you can now perform remote shooting and control the shots from your smart device, which means your camera’s control functions such as the optical zoom, flash, self-timer, and shutter release can now be controlled through your compatible smart device. The images will then be saved to your camera.
You can also have the option of adding a location name to your photos. The application makes it possible for you to add GPS information wirelessly to your images on your camera through recording GPS data on your smart devices – both iOS and Android. The Near Field Communication (NFC) Support is readily available, which makes launching the application faster. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera and smart device. Transferring at a swift pace is at your hands – simply download the CameraWindow application and start transferring those neat snapshots!
While the CameraWindow app allows you to make transferring and viewing photos more convenient, Canon iMage Gateway (CiG), on the other hand, is the perfect partner for you if you are constantly out and about. In just a snap, you can upload all those photos to some of the networks that we all love using – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Google Drive – just link your device to the network and CiG will do the rest. CiG also allows you to have your personal spot on the internet where all your photos and videos will be on display – because sometimes, special memories are not enough to be kept in a private album.
To create that online photo album, go to your camera’s link settings on your device and select the registered devices.Select either cloud or the globe icon, and enter the authentication code that will pop up on your camera, to your CiG page. It’s that simple and trouble-free.
You can get all the benefits of having a CiG account in just a few clicks. Simply visit to register. Make sure to confirm the registration by following the link that will be sent to your e-mail address, and afterwards register your camera’s serial number.

PR: Daniel Matsunaga reveals secret to having the strength to do what’s next after his PBB big win.

San Marino Tuna Flakes #WhatsNewWhatsNext

As a believer in living life to the fullest, ‘Brapanese’ model Daniel Matsunaga regularly does cardio exercises, lifts weights, and participates in a lot of sports like professional football and the Spartan Race, the most difficult obstacle race franchise, whose US competition he wishes to join someday. He also loves to wakeboard and get into the groove of Brazil’s traditional dance Capoeira.
But sports and workout is only a small portion of what makes the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) grand winner fit and strong. The strength to do all his activities, especially after his recent big win at the reality show, comes from a daily diet that consists of a lot of protein that he gets from his favorite tuna.
“Food diet is very important for me. It gives me the strength to seize whatever opportunity comes my way after winning the top prize in PBB. And for me, the perfect diet mostly consists of high protein tuna from San Marino Tuna Flakes,” Matsunaga said.
Protein, after all, is an essential building block of muscles. The more protein people eat, the more they build and strengthen their muscles, which in turn will allow them to enjoy more activities and live life to the fullest.
“I just love San Marino Tuna Flakes. It’s all natural tuna goodness gives me just that – the strength to do what’s next in my showbiz career and sports engagements,” Matsunaga said.
After introducing a few years back its fresh twist to canned tuna, the “corned tuna,” San Marino has just joined the conventional  canned tuna market with the newly launched tuna flakes line that comes in oil and hot & spicy variants, and in easy-open cans.
Made from freshly-caught tuna with no preservatives, San Marino Tuna Flakes contains the highest level of protein to help build strong muscles so one can make the most out of life and take on #WhatsNewWhatsNext. This makes San Marino Tuna Flakes the perfect choice for health and fitness buffs. On its own or prepared in a variety of dishes like sandwiches and pasta, one can truly enjoy the natural goodness of tuna and the strength that comes with it.
During the launch of Matsunaga as the face of the new San Marino Tuna Flakes, Foodsphere President Jerome Ong said, “We are glad to welcome Daniel as one of our brand endorsers. After all, we created our newest tuna flakes product with millennials like him in mind. San Marino Tuna Flakes will fuel them so that they can do one exciting adventure after another.”

Ong further shared that their newest product is “a dream come true for everyone behind Foodsphere. It captures the essence of how the company has grown stronger and risen higher than ever to achieve its vision of providing total satisfaction to Filipinos through food that nourishes life.”

Present as well in the San Marino Tuna Flakes’ launch are fit & fab celebrities like young basketball superstars Jeric and Jeron Teng, Dela Salle Archers’ Big Man Arnold van Opstal and lady spiker Mika Reyes, hunks Marc Nelson and Victor Basa, actress-models Phoemela Baranda and Bubbles Paraiso, showbiz reporters Ginger Conejero and Divine Lee, showbiz daughter Dani Barretto, and hosts Nikko Ramos and Katz Salao.
Held at the Mercato Centrale-Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, the San Marino Tuna Flakes launch event also treated guests and participants to try out exciting activities for free like wall climbing, trapezing, rappelling and win exciting prizes like Go Pro cameras and Garmin watches.

BDJ Box Beauty Social: Camp Gorgeous

This was three weeks ago. There was a typhoon named Luis during this event. I wasn't able to join the pre-registered talks I signed up for because I was late. I traveled from South to North. Unlike my previous Bdj beauty social posts, this time its not well detailed because I was late. I had my makeup done from Piandre Salon. I really liked it and everyone who saw the result also liked it. I just regret a little on the part wherein the MUA had shave my eyebrows too much.

I didn't go to all the booths and joined their promo. I joined Benefit Cosmetics and Cover Girl only. I was able to sit down and listened to the last two talks as a walk in and went home with a loot bag.

Got my WH magazine from Ate Justin. The Cosmo was from my loot bag.

Thank you to all the generous sponsors for these samples.
