MY SO-CALLED LIFE

Nowadays, more and more artists are investing in having a business of their own since most of them say that the limelight has a lot of ups and downs and because of this, they need a back up plan just in case they want to focus on other things aside from acting to earn more after being stable with their career.

Kris Bernal is very hands on on her burger joint business "MEAT KRIS". When you get the chance to visit it, you will surely have a Kris Bernal overload experience since it actually personifies Kris Bernal. Kris said that the overall design and conceptualization is from her and she actually decorated it herself. 

It took her two months to finish all the concepts and designs. Most of the decorations came from her and the fans and her co-workers are her fans as well who loyally volunteered to support and work for her.
The menu is quite amusing and cute as well. This came from the shows and co-artist she have worked in the past and one fan even suggested a name for her menu which is "Cheese Bernal". Kris said she wanted the menu to be catchy and notable as well. The prices were worth it since most of the burgers are quite big in serving too.

Let's check out the MENU:
Happy Lang Almusal Php 149.00

Cheese Bernal Php 159.00 

Dream. Believe. Survive. Php 159.00

Bacon Pa More Php 139.00

Dapat Ka Bang Philly-in Php 189.00

Cheese Burger Php 99.00

5x Patty Burger Php 259.00

Sausage ni Aljur Php 189.00

According to Kris Bernal, the best seller is Cheese Bernal and also her favorite too. 
She is thankful that even though it's been only two weeks since she had her soft opening, a lot of people have been going there. Most of her friends in the industry have dropped by and although she named one of the burger from Aljur Abrenica, her long time love team, she said Aljur haven't visited the joint yet, she wanted to invite her when he is not busy and he can spend his time checking out the menu.

Just recently, Kris and Aljur guested in Dear Uge. She doesn't have any upcoming teleserye right now but hopefully she will get a project again soon. Although you can catch Kris on several tv guesting via GMA Network. Kris said that she is happy that most people still recognize her as "Tinay" in her recent teleserye "Little Nanay". She added that hopefully the show will have an award since it all pave a way for her to do a very challenging role and the show also gave a lot of insights and inspiration to everyone. Kris said that Little Nanay is one of her most memorable show since she also got the chance to work with Superstar Nora Aunor which is a very rare chance.

Catch Kris Bernal once you dine in at MEAT Kris! She will surely be there to serve you her delicious and mouth watering burgers with open arms!

Thank you Kris for inviting us! Congrats on your new business venture!

It was not long ago when we watched Joseph Marco and Alex Gonzaga paired in their first teleserye in Pure Love via ABS CBN. Now, they are paired once again with Rgeal Film's latest RomCom Movie "My Rebound Girl". It was Mother Lily who said that they look good onscreen and that they have that chemistry which is why they instantly pushed a project for "#SephLex which is how their fans call them.

During the Blogcon of My Rebound Girl with the cast and Direk Emmanuel de la Cruz of Slumber Party, Kailangan Kita and Sarung Banggi both Joseph Marco and Alex Gonzaga mentioned how excited they were that they're finally working with each other again. Alex said that she is very comfortable working with Joseph since they've already worked before and they're very close friends. Alex added that Joseph appreciates her funny and sunny personality and she on the other hand also appreciates his serious side which is why they work as a team.

Joseph and Alex talks about their character in the movie. Joseph said that, "Rich, my character, is a bit serious about his life and when it comes to love, he has no reservations. I think those are the two qualities that I can identify with."

Alex said,"Rocky, my character, is easily convinced that men will not hurt her. I am somewhat like that."

The PLOT
In the film, Alex (Gonzaga) is Raquel or Rocky, dubbed as the “Pambansang Rebound Girl.” She may not be a stunner but she is kind, trusting and jolly.

Rocky’s dad wanted to bring her with him abroad but she declined and instead put up her own business, the Perfect Blend Café, with several business partner-friends, including her boyfriend Timmy.

Just when she thinks her plans are falling into place, Timmy, whi happens to be their group’s main financier, backs out of Perfect Blend to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend.

Rocky, dumped and heartbroken, wanted to quit the café venture until her savior, Rich Magsanoc (Joseph Marco) comes along.

Both came on too strong for the other on their first meeting, as Rich, being the financier served as the café’s manager. But as they go along, though, both agree to co-manage the shop on the condition that the cafewill make use of Rich’s coffee beans from an almost idle coffee farm.

During one of Rocky’s visits to the coffee farm in Benguet, she discovers how much Rich wants to revive the farm to convince his mom against selling the property. She also learns that Rich has just been dumped by his long-time girlfriend.

From then on, Rocky and Rich’s relationship become sweeter as they develop their own signature blends, disagreements ended up in a date until Rich finds himself slowly falling for Rocky.

Rocky eventually agrees to be Rich’s girlfriend even when at the back of her mind, she wasn’t sure whether or not she was getting into another “rebound” relationship.

Their love story gets a major twist when Rich’s former girlfriend shows up at the café’s inauguration.

Most of the people think that when they were taping in Pure Love, they're developing feeling for one another. What happened back then? Alex said that both of them were focused on their career since this is the first time that they'll be having a telserye which is why they must focus on work first. That is their priority. When asked what is their status now, Joseph said that they're taping one step at a time, they enjoyed each other's company and whatever happens in the future, he wants to treasure their friendship more than anything else.

When asked what qualities do they like about each other, Joseph said that Alex is, "She loves her family, fears and loves God, has a very kind heart and is humble, too. We get along very well.

As for Alex to Joseph, "He is very mysterious, caring and sweet to me, much more so I think if I am his girlfriend."

Watch My Rebound Girl Blogcon here:

I've watched My Rebound Girl on its Premiere Night that happened last September 27 
at SM Megamall.

Overall the movie has a lot of kilig scenes, it's clear that #SephLex really has that magical chemistry onscreen. One of the location of the movie is at Benguet which added an element of appreciation to the scenery plus you'll admire how both Alex and Joseph have evolved on being mature when it comes to their roles. Alex can be an effective actress, she can do comedy then drama, as for Joseph you can see the sincerity of his lines with his eyes. 

The story is a bit fast though, I wish they gave more scenes on how Alex and Joseph developed feelings for one another and showed more scenes that Joseph is already on the phase of moving on from his past love or maybe that's the point of being on the rebound. 
There were scenes that Alex showed fondness of Joseph that you'd think it's actually the reality not just in movie. You will also get dating tips in the movie and if you're curious if you'll get to see Joseph Marco's abs in the making, YES you will. 

Congrats Joseph Marco and Alex Gonzaga! hope you'll have a teleserye again soon!

The trouble is that you need something that has quite a few features and that will perform well compared to a cell phone, alongside the issue of price. You don't want to spend too much on a one-function device.

Homtime introduces a digital alarm clock that will surely fit the lifestyle of everyone especially the millennials. Homtime is a Shanghai-based company that has been producing electronic for years, and is now making innovative clock technology that complements people’s bedside lifestyles.

Child actor Marco Masa was also present during the event and he also got the chance to experience the augmented reality app of Jollibee.

Other features of the JolliDance Showdown App were also discussed, including unlocking new characters with every visit to Jollibee branches and scanning the Jolly Kiddie Meal promo board located at the store counters.

Yim said, “The app is pushing how we can engage kids with augmented reality. It’s more than just having characters appear. It’s interactive and gives a much deeper experience.”

The event shared the most recent effort of the leading fast-food brand to augment the langhap-sarap experience. Francis Flores, Jollibee Global brand chief marketing officer, says of its new partnership, “We are glad to work with Trigger to help enrich the Jollibee experience for children and for the young at heart with the launch of our JolliDance Showdown App. Being the first local fast-food to come up with an augmented reality game, we are very excited for our loyal customers who love Jollibee and Friends, as this gives them an opportunity to interact in a fun way using their mobile phones and tablets.
