In celebration of Judy Ann’s 30th birthday, she stars and produced a remarkable and ground-breaking film Ploning.

Judy Ann Santos stars as Ploning, a simple girl from Barrio Cuyo in Palawan, that embarks a simple relationship-based story to her father, lover and everybody else in their small Barrio. It may be one of Judy Ann’s best performance, a truly remarkable feat for her. Ploning conveys a simple message: Ang pag-ibig ay naghihintay at umaasa, na kahit sa anong paraan, maaari tayong magbigay ng pag-ibig sa lahat ng tao.

As I have already spread out in the first part of this post, there are many factors why the rice prices are going up, way up high. Personally, I believe that there is a rice shortage, unlike the statements of our government officials disputing the rice shortage as a myth.

The Philippines has been scrambling to boost stocks and supply cheap rice to the poor as rice prices soared to near-record levels in recent months amid increased demand, crop failures, a shift to biofuels production or other land uses, and poor investment in the farm sector. The Philippines imports about 10 percent of its domestic rice requirement. The problem with our culture system is that we always believe that we can buy rice in any country, at any price.

Its been years since I had my last movie review (Evan Almighty), but now since its vacation, I can do a lot more. Just this week, I watched two movies that opened: a local gay-themed comedy Manay Po 2: Overload; and a foreign parody Superhero Movie. But right now, I’m going to tell about Manay Po!

MANAY PO 2: OVERLOAD, Regal Entertainment

I won’t deny that I have a lot of gay friends, and I do enjoy their company – they always give me a big laugh – that’s why a lot of entertainment media uses gays as a point of comedic values of the industry. And they have not failed to entertain us. So, if you find gay humor amusing, then you can spend some time watching this film, and definitely, you won’t waste time and, of course, precious money.
