Antonio Banderas Struggles to Win Back Melanie Griffith


"Remember, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness."
Antonio Banderas is allegedly desperate to keep his marriage with Melanie Griffith intact after reports of his infidelity took their toll. A number of recent reports have claimed that Banderas has been unfaithful to his wife of 15 years. Amongst other incidents, the actor was allegedly spotted kissing another woman while vacationing in Cancun. Melanie Griffith's initial response was "BoyfriEND, girlfriEND, friEND, everything has an end, except for family," the star posted online, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry.

"Antonio has been desperately trying to win Melanie's trust back," a source reported to RadarOnline on Tuesday. "He has been doing everything in his power to revive the romance -- flowers, sweet-talking on the phone, and extravagant gifts -- because he realizes that she is close to her breaking point." Proof of her breaking point came last week when the star was photographed out and about in town without wearing her wedding ring.

Men should behave and should be a one man-woman so their marriage would never be in danger.

A descent woman should never enter into a relationship with a married man.

A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down. -Robert Benchley


NRCE 2012:Taking Customer Experience to New Heights


What: 21st National Retail Conference 
When: August 9, 10, 2012
Where: SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City

Oh, la la! Good News to all entrepreneurs! The Philippine Retailers Association (PRA) highlights why shopping is more fun in the Philippines during its 21st National Retail Conference (NRCE) and Stores Asia Expo.

This 2-day conference and exhibit is usually attended by over 800 retail owners, suppliers, CEOs, and top level executives.

For this year, NRCE invites experts from the retail industry and other related sectors to cover relevant aspects of retailing.

NRCE, the country's biggest retail industry event, joined forces with the government's  It's More Fun in the Philippines campaign, as it invites tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez to speak on the campaign's synergy with retail industry growth and more fun shopping experience.

Adding to the prestige of the event is Coca Cola’s President and CEO William Schultz who will be the keynote speaker on the opening day of the conference. Coca Cola, which celebrates its centennial year this year is among the well-loved brands in the Philippines. Coca Cola’s participation in this year’s NRCE is expected to further elevate the “fun” aspect of the conference as the brand celebrates “100 Year of Happiness”.

This year’s NRCE highlights are strategies for driving growth and customer engagement.

The topic that interest me the most in this upcoming NRCE 2012 Conference Program is Harnessing the Power of Digital Marketing and Online Commerce for Retail Growth. As everyone knows we are in the Digital Age. Most of my peers don't buy newspaper or watch TV anymore.  My friends read the news online and watch you tube instead. They always sign in and read news feeds from their Facebook walls. 

This could only mean one thing. Establishments in order to keep up with the times must put up an online presence.

Nowadays, it is common to find establishments with a fan page at Facebook. You are not "in" if you don't have fan page or a domain which will make your store's online presence stronger.

There's plenty of room for improvements in the retail sector in the Philippines. In the future, I would be thrilled to see and use the innovative NFC( Near-Field Communication) card to pay for food and transportation purchases. I like how fast and easy the retail transaction using NFC cards like the card that was introduced to the market by a fast food chain, very similar to Hong Kong's Octopus Card, and the Top Up Card of Singapore. A customer just need to tap their cards and voila, the transaction was done already.


So don't be left behind! Harness the power of Digital Media today!


Video of Libyan Strongman Muammar Gaddafi's Violent Death


Don't click if you have a weak heart.

Questions remained over the manner of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi's death after he was captured, mauled and then wounded. The video shows a wounded Gaddafi still alive while fleeing the coastal town. He later died from gunshot wounds to the head and abdomen, and his body was taken to the rebel stronghold of Misrata.

When I saw this video. I think my heart melted. Maybe Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi's committed abuses during his term in Libya but I think no human being deserves a violent death. 

They say it is a tooth for a tooth an eye for an eye. But then again, we should not condone violence. Every human being deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.

In the video, you will see the once-feared Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's turning his head from side to side as if saying he don't want to go out of the vehicle maybe for fear that Libyan people would again maul him.

A new You Tube version was uploaded recently showing Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi's violent death last October.

UNIQLO AIRism Sale!


We all have heard, saw and even some of you had witness UNIQLO's successful grand opening where huge crowds of avid shoppers wanted to get inside the very first UNIQLO store in the Philippines. Yes, we are all curious, what is so special about Uniqlo that everybody went gaga over it! 

I remember my friend Joyce who shop nothing but Uniqlo when she went to Japan. And then again another friend, earlier this year A & and her friend B stayed in HK for 4 days and 3 nights and they did nothing but to shop at Uniqlo Hongkong.

So when Uniqlo opened its door at SM MOA I was so curious as to why everybody loves Uniqlo. My friend S spent a whole day buying UNIQLO items on its first day of opening here in the Philippines

I learned that UNIQLO offers new conventional wisdom to Filipinos regarding what to wear when it’s hot, and it’s not “Remove clothes” but it’s actually about “Putting on AIRism”.

UNIQLO announces today to Filipinos its most recent promo offer for its “AIRism” inner wear line. This means we are in a new age where clothes are getting innovative. And for me, that is good news!

UNIQLO offers new conventional wisdom for hot summer by “AIRism” on SALE!

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s try “AIRism” !

From July 13 up to July 19, 2012 only, UNIQLO products like the AIRism V-Neck Shirt for Men (Regular Price P590) and the AIRism Camisole for Women (Regular Price P590) can be purchased at a really affordable price of P490.



What is AIRism?

“AIRism” is a brand of the functional inner and outer garment line by UNIQLO. Made of breathable “cupro fibers” from Japanese manufacturers Asahi Kasei and micro nylon by Toray Industries, these fiber types possess the unique ability to release heat and to remove moisture and perspiration. AIRism also provides the wearer with utmost comfort despite the heat and humidity, and a soft, soothing feeling that’s light as air. It’s as if you’re wearing nothing—and yet look and feel great.

I would love to try this AIRism!

The AIRism V-Neck T-Shirt for Men is UNIQLO’s popular line of light, cool and comfortable innerwear. It is very light and has ultra-fine fibers that feel soft and smooth on the skin. The special fabric also stretches to fit snugly to the body and quickly absorbs perspiration and neutralizes body odors, so you feel dry and refreshed throughout the day.

The AIRism Camisole for Women also has ultra-fine fibers that are soft, smooth and cool on the skin. It is made of stretchable materials for that body-hugging fit and has air-conditioning and heat-release properties, where each fiber -removes moisture (perspiration) and heat from the body to keep the body dry and feel comfortable.

UNIQLO is a global apparel brand known for its “MADE FOR ALL” philosophy where people express themselves through its unique, yet high quality and fully functional clothing line.

The first UNIQLO store in the Philippines, located at the 2nd Floor, Main Mall of SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, opened last June 15, 2012. Store hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
