PBB Celebrity Edition debuts tonight

Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 logo

Weeeeeeee! I can’t tell you how excited I am right now. The launch of the Second Celebrity Edition of Pinoy Big Brother tonight has gotten me all worked up that I’m so lazy to post a proper, well, blog post. So I just snatched a story from the official Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition website hoping ABS-CBN won’t sue my little tush.

Ang dating border ni Kuya, Bianca Gonzales, gives us to a sneak peek on what’s waiting for us at PBB Celebrity Edition’s kick-off tonight! Currently at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas where the new celeb housemates are billeted since Friday, Bianca excitedly shared additional information to their identities. She even toured the 7th floor where all the housemates where staying and spoke to one of them!

Preparations for PBB Celebrity Edition 2 are in full-swing right now at the hotel. The 13 housemates are already blindfolded and covered whenever they leave their rooms. All of them were called into the hotel one by one by Big Brother and are briefed with the rules of the house. The housemates also underwent the standard operating procedure of luggage checks and were taught on how to use the lapel.

As for the identities of the housemates here are some more clues straight from Bianca on The Buzz! Get ready to meet the Celebrity Hunk, Celebrity Babe, Wild Child, Princess of Charm, True Lover, Poor Beauty Queen, Despised Babe, English Outcast, Desirable Diva, Lonely Dreamboy, Mom in Distress and the Komedyanteng Promdi. Bianca even talked to one of the male housemates but their short conversation was in between a closed door. Talk about being so close, yet so far!

Going crazy from guessing? Well, don’t miss PBB Celebrity Edition 2’s grand debut tonight at 9:30pm to find out if your hunches are right!

PBB2 Update: Wendy Valdez, Maxim covergirl

Maxim Philippines must really be desperate to dislodge FHM from the top of the list of best men’s magazines. Why? Because they just wrapped up the pictorial for the August 2007 cover with none other than our favorite Pinoy Big Brother Season 2 housemate Wendy Valdez.

Ehem. Now that I’ve got that bias off my chest … let’s focus on the pros and cons of having Wendy as the covergirl.

Advantage: Wendy is beautiful and sexy, making selling the magazine a breeze.

Disadvantage: Wendy’s, uhmm, scars and other skin problems show quite clearly. Without the help of Photoshop, I don’t see how they’d make her beauty stand out. Well, they’ve done it before, with Angelica Panganiban, I don’t see any reason why they can’t do it again.

Advantage: Wendy’s popularity definitely gives ABS-CBN Publishing and Maxim Philippines an edge. Pinoy Big Brother Season 2 is, after all, an ABS-CBN show. Why not cash in on the “brand building” they’ve invested on during the show’s three-month run?

Disadvantage: Wendy’s notoriety definitely throws a spanner into the works, as even flesh-ogling males have a hard time understanding the housemate’s antics while inside the Big Brother house.

Darn! I’ve run out of witty remarks. Can you contribute a few? No bashing please—we’ve had enough of those already. Just witty, factual remarks based on your observations.

MMORPG: Perfect World opens doors today

It’s official. Level Up! Games is opening the doors of Perfect World to open beta players today. This marks a milestone for my family as both Dada Joel and Mama Joyce are players—not necessarily fans—of the popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game from China, although Mom is by far the better and more avid gamer. :p

Here’s the announcement from Level Up! Games:

Perfect World Gearing Up to Go Open Beta!

Perfect World is getting ready for its open beta, and we would like to express our gratitude to all our closed beta players for all the support and patience they expressed during this period.

Today, July 18, Perfect World goes Open Beta, when we can once again enjoy adventuring together.

Thank you!

Events: Are you ready for RAW action and war?

Diehard RAW!

Uncle Ninong Jasper’s bringing out the big guns, literally and figuratively, this Sunday, July 1, at Baghdad in Libis, Quezon City, for the First Philippine Real Action Wargame Competition.

If you look at the banner for the event, you’ll see Bruce Willis’ handsome, blood-streaked mug. That’s because the event is tied to the premiere of the movie Diehard 4.0, sponsored by radio station Wave 89.1.

So what are you waiting for? Hie on over to the official site, read all about the event, and prepare for war on Sunday. You might also want to know what guns they’ll be using for the wargames. If you’re curious enough, click this.

Shameless Plug: Watch, not read, Hinge Inquirer Publication titles

HIP on YouTube

It’s really amazing what a select group of individuals can achieve. Take, for instance, Hinge Inquirer Publications, the company my dad works for. The people behind the magazines the company publishes push their skills to the limits and come out with quality niche and custom publications for readers from all walks of life.

In the past few months, they’ve upped the ante by coming out with quality content not only in the magazines but also on blogs to cater to an ever-growing population of HIP readers. What better is the fact that they use popular new media to serve their readers better. Want an example? Hie on over to HIP’s channel on YouTube and discover why the company is soaring to new heights. 🙂

A little lazy to check it out? Here’s a sampler, a video produced by HIP’s Mobile Philippines featuring the ravishing Ornusa Cadness.
