Charice Sizzles the US-Philippine Expo 2008

Charice once again bedazzled the lucky people of California during the 2008 US-Philippine Expo in Pomona last August 9th.  Charice electrified the stage, actually offstage, because she jumped off and mingled with her astounded fans while singing the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody“. The crowd couldn’t contain their excitement when their idol brushes hands with them and let them take a picture with her while singing. How cool was that? I’m jealous already.

Journey Concert in My Hometown

Gosh! I found out just minutes ago  that Journey will have a concert tonight at the Alltel Pavilion which is only 15 minutes away from my home. Unfortunately for me, the tickets were already sold out!

Aaahhh! It was my co-worker who told me this morning and  I almost choke him for not telling me earlier. He said he just knew about it last night when his wife told him they are going to the Journey with Heart and Cheap Trick concert.

I am kicking myself in the butt. I can not blame my co-worker for not telling me that Journey‘s in town. I should have researched  more. I am dying to watch the Journey concert because of their new lead singer, Arnel Pineda. The chance for me to see them is slim to none.

I am not giving up hope. I shouldn’t. I have a feeling I can grab 2 tickets before the concert starts tonight. If luck is not on my side, I will just wait for my co-worker’s feedback tomorrow.

Left, Left, Left, Right, Left!

Naah! Just a couple of women showing off their pretty and skinny legs. These two girls look like they are marching with a style. Park Shi-Yeon(left) and Gong Hyo-Jin (right) seem to have an agreement on what to wear and how to walk in the premiere of their movie Dajjimawa Lee: The Orient Espionage(다찌마와 리) yesterday (August 6).

Gong Hyo-Jin’s (Thank You) real life sweetheart, Ryu Seung-beom (Rays of Sunshine), are together in this movie. Ryu’s brother, Ryu Seung-wan, is the director of this spy film (photo below).

Dancing is In for Commercial Films

Dancing CF models such as Kim Tae Hee, seems to be a hit in South Korea. According to recent studies,  commercial films (CF) with models dancing seems to lift spirits and help people forget the economic crisis that the world is experiencing these days.

So a few shake here and few twist there can actually catch the viewers eyes and be mesmerized for a brief moment and forget the woes in life (?). Hmm… I may agree on this one because there is a liquor commercial here in US  that i just can’t help but stop whatever it is I am doing just to watch it. I can’t remember the liquor brand but I remember how it went. The bartender at the disco was twisting mint leaves into the glass and everyone was shaking their booties according to the direction  of the twist the bartender was doing. When the the bartender stopped twisting the mint leaves, the music stopped and everyone stopped dancing. When the bartender did the twisting again, well you guess what happened. Yeah, everyone was shaking their thing again. Trust me, it was mesmerizing.

I guess that is why you see a lot of dancing and shaking in CFs these days because people will pay attention. I am not sure if they will pay attention to the brand but I am pretty sure they will pay attention to whoever is dancing and shaking.

Cho Sung Hoon: Waa! I dropped all my milk, I couldn’t take my eyes off of that dancing chick in pink sneakers.

UPDATE: I found it! I found the video and it was Bacardi Mojito. Check it out!
