Most Anticipated Romantic Movies of 2014

1. The Fault in our Stars

Release Date: June 2014

Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them -- and us -- on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.



2. If I Stay
Release Date: August 2014

Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate. "If I Stay" is based on the best-selling novel of the same name. 


3. The Best of Me
Release Date: October 2014

In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?  -NicholasSparks.com

Make Owning your Dream Even Sweeter with Carlo Rossi


That heavenly feeling when you finally hold, for the first time, something that you have been dreaming
about for a long time, like a shiny, new car in your favorite color, red. It truly sweet-- and it’s yours!

Finally  owning  something  that  you’ve  worked  hard  for,  long  dreamed  of,  is  indeed  a  reason  to celebrate. Whether all by your lonesome or with friends, family, a boyfriend or a girlfriend – it doesn’t really matter. What  is  important  is  to mark  the  day  with  something  sweet,  and  dreamy:  and make  it sweeter with  a bottle of Carlo Rossi Sweet Red.

Rossi Sweet Red is just the perfect companion for such a marvelous occasion. As its name suggests, Rossi Sweet Red is sweet with layers of vanilla, bright cherry and wild raspberry flavors. Unlike your dream car though, Rossi Sweet Red is affordable and won’t break your wallet, or test the limit of your credit card.

Rossi  Sweet  Red  also  has  a  well-balanced  palate  and  a  light  medium  body,  and  tastes  just  as  great, whether chilled or with ice. It’s not also choosy when it comes to a companion because it goes well with about just anything – cheese, fish, meat, or even the all-time Filipino favorite, the sizzling sisig.


Crafted from grapes cultured in California where the sun nurtured the tiny fruits to perfection to assure you  of  wines  bursting  with  flavor  and  aroma,  Rossi  Sweet  Red  has  just  the  right  amount  of  alcohol content and therefore won’t leave you heavily drunk even after finishing a bottle with friends.


Because it comes  from  the Number One Table Wine in  the world, Carlo Rossi, you are assured of  the high quality that goes with every bottle. Also, because it’s red and sourced from grapes, it is good for the heart when drank moderately. So  what  else  is  lovely  about  drinking  Rossi  Sweet  Red?  Especially  when  you  are  drinking  it  to  toast another milestone in your life – that of finally owning something that’s a fruit of your labor!

This is actually an incredible mash-up that is going viral on the internet right now.

Another pinoy musician is taking the online world by storm after his mashup video spread out on Facebook. The video that I have watched was shared by Paki-explain. Labyu. page last May 19 and as of now, it already gathered more than 7000 likes and almost 13,000 shares.

Here's the amateur mashup video that was recorded while they were drinking and having fun with karaoke.



Thank you Makoi for granting me that short interview. Other songs that they uploaded were, Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin, Through The Fire, Wave by Oscar Peterson, Dance with My Father
