How would you like to be a K-pop star? People’s Television Network and HBKOR, Inc. have officially announced their partnership in finding talents around the Philippines and turning them into world-class stars. Five Filipino winners will have the chance to be trained for six months in Korea. They’ll also get five-year exclusive contracts with a Korean-based talent management company.
(Yes, I am tempted to join. As an avid fan of K-pop, I’ve had those moments fancying myself as an idol with wild dance moves and a beautiful voice. Sadly, all I have is really, really bad hand-eye-body-foot coordination that, if not controlled properly, will probably result in me hurting myself and others. HA! That won’t stop me… or will it?)
“The world must know, that right in the Philippine grounds, there is a wide arena of talents waiting to be discovered and developed into a world-class brand,” said Kim Jung Su, president of HBKOR, Inc.
They also invited the Black Queen, fresh from South Korea, to show what winners might look like after training. We oooh-ed and aaah-ed as the girls showcased their perfectly coordinated moves to songs such as 2NE1’s “Do You Love Me?”
This really is a big opportunity for all you aspiring stars out there. So if you have it, don’t be afraid to flaunt it. Entries will be accepted from April 1 to August 31; for more details, visit www.kispinoy.com or call (02) 5516834 to 35.K-Pop Idol Search Pinoy Edition will air in September on PTV4.

We’ve always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, we often find ourselves in a rush—especially in the morning—and fail to find time to eat breakfast. Some of us even resort to unhealthy junk food during the day, which is a big no-no!
Subway, known for its submarine sandwiches, introduced the “Build Your Better Breakfast” campaign this month, adding flatbread sandwiches into the menu. Customers on-the-go can enjoy four breakfast flavors: Egg & Cheese; Ham, Egg and Cheese; Bacon, Egg & Cheese; and Sausage, Egg & Cheese together with hash browns and a cup of coffee or soda. Doesn’t it look delish?
For someone who likes the usual fluffy pancakes, I enjoyed the breakfast flatbreads because they are super yummy and easy to eat—perfect for days when I’m running late!
Staying true to its tagline (“Flavorful Freshness. Available all-day. Just the way you want it.”), these flatbreads are not just available in the morning but at any time of the day.

Inspired by New York’s New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, we all counted down from ten to one as the first bowling balls were rolled into the newest SM Bowling Center last January 28, 2014. DJ Callum let the beat drop as guests changed into their bowling shoes to try the state-of-the-art bowler system.
The new bowler system allows you to chat with other players during the game and lets you post your final scores to your Facebook wall. Another fun thing to do is to personalize your scoreboard with your own photos, which makes it funnier when you or your friends hit the gutter! But if you suddenly start hitting all the gutters and you are by far convinced that bowling isn’t your thing, don’t fret—the SM Bowling Center also features billiard tables, karaoke rooms, and *drum roll please* the newest ever, PlayStation 4.
Instead of going to another arcade with your barkada or seeing another movie with your family, why not take them all to the 4th floor of SM Mega Fashion Hall? Bring a pair of socks with you (or buy them there for impromptu dates!) and get ready for a day of good food, great entertainment, and awesome company.

Five years ago, the Philippines’ first Ice Skating rink in SM Megamall closed down, breaking the hearts of ice princesses everywhere. But this year, they’re opening once again—bigger, better, and as cold as ever. The grand launch last January 28, 2014 started with figure skaters warming up the ice to the soundtracks of our most beloved fairy tales, such as Frozen and Wicked. We all ooh-ed and aah-ed as the prodigies of other SM Ice Skating Rinks gracefully glided on the ice with their beautifully precise movements.
Soon after, the ice was opened for everyone and we traded our doll shoes for figure skates. We held on to the sides for a while, trying to keep our balance, but we soon found ourselves in the middle tracing figure eights and circles, attempting to lift a leg for a few seconds here and there. We both felt like certified ice princesses—and we didn’t want to leave!
The Olympic sized winter wonderland currently houses itself in the newest extension of SM Megamall, the Mega Fashion Hall. When you’re ready to trade in some of your Confessions of a Shopaholic moments for some Blades of Glory action, gather your friends and head to the top floor. Nothing screams friendship more than holding hands while chanting “right left right left” before you all fall down—together.

American Idol is back for their 13th season and we couldn’t be happier! We watch year after year not just to discover great voices but also the cutest guys. So far, here are our top three picks this year:
Guitar skills + gorgeous eyes + beautiful hair = love
AI judge Harry Connick, Jr. called him “ridiculously handsome.” Amen. We’re drooling over Jacob Black’s long-lost guitar-playing brother.
This grandpa’s boy won our hearts from the moment his pretty face sang the first note of Ed Sheeran’s “Lego House.”
We’re going to be tuned in to ETC every Thursday and Friday at 6 pm to catch the live via satellite episodes or go www.blink-now.comfor live streaming because, you know, we have to call dibs on who found who first. If you miss it or want to watch again, you can catch them on primetime at 8 pm (Thursdays) and 9 pm (Fridays). Happy watching!
