high point.


super saya ng third ustv student's choice awards kagabi! masaya na, makabuluhan pa. the purpose of their annual awards night is to challenge the television networks to be partners with schools in educating the youth. i can't stress how much i am all for that. masaya kasi kwela o may tama lahat ng nagbigay ng speech!

y speak won as the best public affairs program for the second year in a row.. (thank you ust!! salamat talaga!) and our executive producer and my good friend mori rodriguez said in his acceptance speech, "we put so much work and effort into making the show better everytime, and at the end of the day, its all worth it, especially when we are given recognition by the very people to whom we dedicate each episode of y speak."

studio 23 won as the most youth-friendly channel, and our creative on-air director at 23, edson aguiflor, stressed in his speech how the skills and values he learned from ust are exactly the skills and values that make his work possible now.

maalaala mo kaya won as best drama anthology for the third time, and ma'am charo santos-concio accepted the award. she appealed to their school's head that the show will send researchers to the campus to try to find inspiring, beautiful stories from the ust students. "father, pwede po ba?" she asked with pure charm. "pwede daw!" she exclaimed. and all the students cheered.

"this award means so much because we've been on the air for decades now and we have never been given this kind of recognition," a father from the family rosary crusade said in his acceptance speech for the best catholic program award. "and always keep in mind," he said as an ending to his speech, "the family that prays together.." then the whole auditorium said in unison, "stays together!"

the correspondents won as best news documentary program and abner mercado was there to accept the award. "two decades ago.. nag-exam ako dito.. pero hindi ninyo ako tinanggap!" he said in jest. the whole auditorium laughed and cheered him on. "ang kursong in-applyan ko? journalism!" he added. everyone laughed even harder. "sabi ko sa sarili ko, babalikan ko din kayo. at ngayon nga, nakabalik na ako, may award pa."

arnold clavio won as best newscaster for the second year as well. to keep up with the jolly spirit of the night, a thomasian himself, igan raises his award and says, "sorry abner, mataas standards namin eh." the whole auditorium roared with laughter and applause, and so did abner.

maging sino ka man was a great hit that night. (i myself looooove that soap!! ibang klase!! as in parang pelikula na teleserye!! graaabe what a story!! and the acting!! wow!! ..okay tama na bianca, haha.) both bea alonzo and john lloyd cruz won as best actress and actor in a drama mini-series. john lloyd accepts his award with a line that gave him a standing ovation, "sa lahat ng nagmamahal katulad ni eli! para sa inyo ito."





low point.


princess diana died in a freak accident a decade ago.
britney spears shaved her head a few days ago and is now in rehab.
kris aquino cried on national television about an extremely sensitive issue in the buzz last sunday.

on the issue of the paparazzi and tabloid journalism.. how should we look at things?





points on love.


"today i thought i was gonna die.. and all i could think about was, i couldn't remember our last kiss."
meredith grey to mcdreamy, from grey's anatomy

"you.. i can tell.. are a leading lady. but for some reason you're behaving like the best friend."
arthur abbott to iris, from 'the holiday'.

Congrats to the KAPAMILYA and KABARKADA networks! We deserved it. (Naki-join ba?)

Y Speak. Ang ganda ganda kaya ngepisode nyo last SUNDAY. CALL CENTER!!! Bianca, and galing galing sumagot ng tawag despite the hot-headed caller na nagfrefreak out na!

MAGING SINO KA MAN. Tama ka dyan, Biancs. Ang ganda ng story at an galing galing pa ng mga bidang-kontrabida. HIGH CALIBER.

GREY's ANATOMY. So nanonood ka rin pala ng GA? Nice noh. You feel attached and gusto mo manood ka nalang he whole day ng GREY's.

Yipee!!... Congrats!!... go go go Y Speak... I am a TFC subscriber and very thankful that they did include Y Speak in the program coz not all shows are shown here in M.E....

I must agree iba talaga ang MSKM...kaka-relate minsan sa characters noh...

God speed Bianca... looking forward to a great PBB2...

I was at work during the USTv awards night so I wasn't able to watch it. Last year, I saw you, even had the chance to talk to you. I was so sad na hindi ko kayo napanood. nasa loob lang ng ust ang work ko ha. I knew y speak would win and john lloyd, such a good actor. I love this soap opera too kahit hindi ko napapanood palagi. perhaps next year, i'll get to see it. congrats bianca! job well done. i really think you're a great host. =)

Re: paparazzi/tabloid journalism

Whenever I see pap videos, like from TMZ.com or one of those E! specials about paparazzis, they always defend their job by saying, "Once you become an actor, you're signing away your private life! We're just doing our jobs!" UGGGH. I hate that excuse. Of course, there are those celebs who are only into the entertainment industry for the fame.. I mean, hey, have the paps trail them away!

I feel bad for actual working actors/artists because they are in the entertainment industry because they are in it for their love of the craft and that's THEIR job. It sucks how a lot of fans can't see past an actor/artist's onscreen persona and occasionally perceive their offscreen lives to be the same as how it is onscreen. This is an uphill arguement that shows no sign of immediate resolution. So til then, if you're an actor/artist and you want to do something stupid, DON'T DO IT PUBLICLY. Hahaha!

It's good to "see" you blogging again, Bianca!! Congratulations with all the awards. Take care!

Cathe said...

Congrats to you and to Yspeak! :D

Awww. How touching John Lloyd's speech is.

Hmmm. The second quote about points of love was awesome. It is so heartbreaking.

Yowee said...

All the winners deserve their awards, especially YSpeak.

Welcome back Bianca! It's nice to see you blogging back again.

^_^

tanie said...

hey bianca! is there any way i can help in your Help Kids Learn Project? cash donations? outreach activities? :)

RightKindOfLove said...

sobrang like ko yang mga one-liner ni meredith sa grey's anatomy...

my favorite is this one...

"Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn't change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world. Head on, guns blazing. De Nile. It's not just a river in Egypt, it's a freakin' ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it?”

Ria Hazel said...

sayang. di ko alam yun. graduated at ust last year. My course? journalism. haha.

skulgirltrx said...

hi Biancs! =) i don't know what happened but my comment yesterday wasn't posted, written it around this time din. i'm worried 'coz it's the second time that this happened.

anyway, ulitin ko na lang. =)

congrats sa inyo family sa Yspeak! apir tayo sa Maging Sino... one of the best teleseryes of ABS i guess. i've been a fan of JLC and Bea since Kaytagal Kitang Hinintay =)

i watched din "the Holiday" upon your recommendation sa KTXT. and you're right it was indeed a feel-good movie, something that touches not only one's heart but one's soul din. great, kaka-inspire!

God bless and keep on blogging! =)

KAYE said...

Congrats to Y Speak! I personally think the show's superb! And good job in raising awareness among the youth of today.

Besides my craving for learning new things about today's society and generation (satisfaction brought by Y Speak, indeed.), I am interested as to what goes on behind every sensible show. I am a sophomore at St. Scholastica's College, Manila, by the way.. taking up Interior Design and very much interested in Production.

I'd like to know when and how my friends and I can watch the show live in your studio. What requirements do we need to present? Who do we need to contact?

Hope to hear from you soon! More Power!
