THIS weekend, Cebuanos and those from other places can choose to experience at least four big entertainment packages intended for different markets (or could be just the same crowd, really) on three successive nights. Or they don’t have to choose at all.

Meaning, they can enjoy all the four packages, if they want to.

Updates on President Benigno Aquino III's presidency

Just last night, two foreign groups, The Cascades and The Lettermen had their show at the Pacific Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino. Then tonight, still at the same venue, Sarah Geronimo’s “Record Breaker Philippine tour 2010 Live in Cebu” show will open at 8:30 p.m. Sarah will have Eric Santos, Charlie Green, Cebuano singer Jimmy Marquez and the G-Force as guests.

This will have a repertoire of pop songs (Sarah’s the Pop Princess, remember?), plus a sprinkling of standard songs courtesy of Charlie and some songs belonging to other genres, perhaps courtesy of Eric and Jimmy. You can never tell. G-Force will, of course, provide the sexy back-up moves and grooves to make some performances truly exciting production numbers.


Tomorrow, July 31, a slew of mellow rock songs, plus some pop and other types of songs are expected to be on the repertoire of the featured performers of Pinoy You Got It!

“The Nationwide Concert Tour” at the Pacific Grand Ballroom.

This will be headlined by Pilipinas Got Talent grand champion Jovit Baldivino and the other finalists, including Markki Stroem, Sherwin Baguion and the Ezra Band.

Special guests are two other finalists Ingrid Payaket and promising guitar wiz Keith Delleva. Showtime is slated at 8 p.m. Don’t come in late.


Over at the Teatro Casino (also tomorrow night), which is just within the hotel, funny man Willie Nepomuceno will have his impersonations of equally famous personalities. He will surely tickle the funny bones of invited guests.

The show will start at 9 p.m. I’m looking forward to see the country’s new president, PNoy, being impersonated by Willie. I really hope (and I’m almost sure) it’s in the

line-up. Am I right, Willie Nep?


If you see me sporting a short hairstyle these days despite the departure of the El Nino (oh, those scorching hot days) and the onset of cold, rainy days, it’s because multi-talented individual and renowned hairstylist and make-up artist (to name some of his talents) Jun Esma made me try what he called “enhanced military haircut with a happy color.”

Can you take that? One of Jun’s ace barbers, Robert Gimena (a.k.a. Barbero Streisand), and guest stylist from Boracay, Lady Marie Nabor, combined their expertise in coming up with the desired look. Needless to say, I’m quite happy with the result.


Oh! I almost forgot. Yesterday, Big Seed Media’s April Rama and Jaja Chiongbian-Rama were on their toes attending to friends in the media and other sectors who honored their invitation to the “Make Your Own Havaianas 2010” at the Atrium Northwing of SM City Cebu.

This is my second time to be part of the activity and I can matter-of-factly say that I enjoyed a lot in designing my own Havaianas. It starts with selecting the color of the sole to match or contrast the strap, then picking out of the eye-catching pins, and giving the experts the task to assemble them together.


While some of our friends in the media and in the public and private sectors are on different sides of the now controversial lingam massage issue, I decided to look up via Google if there is a counterpart massage for women.

Guess what? There really is and it’s called yoni (pronounced yo-nee). Who knows?

Enterprising individuals might think it wise to provide these services (presumably performed by male therapists) to the female populace too for different reasons. Just wild thoughts.
