Yahoo! Rocks it for OPM
Yahoo Philippines introduced the final roster of 12 “Breakthrough Acts” who came from the three cities of Cebu, Davao and Metro Manila.  
Yahoo! Philippines launched an advocacy concert that will promote “Original Pilipino Music” (OPM) called Y! Rocks last December 8, 2011 at Mall of Asia Concert Ground that showcased the talents of up-and-coming artists as well as mainstream bands. Across the three cities of Cebu, Davao and Metro Manila, Yahoo! introduced the final roster of 12 “Breakthrough Acts” namely White Sunday, Ma. Laurice Jamero, Penguin, Stereo Deal, Stories of Now, Yield Avenue, Indios, Jeepney Joyride, Row Four, Paranoid City, FOC Fashion and Highway Drive. 
Row Four from Novaliches, Yield Avenue from Laguna and Stories of Now from Makati who share the same passion in music were just among the 12 chosen breakthrough acts that performed on stage with the country’s top music icons like Urbandub, Pupil, The Dawn and Wolfgang. Fortunately, we got the chance to interview these three finalists and shared their experiences and the long journey that they went through before they became part of the 12 “Breakthrough Acts” of Yahoo! Rocks.
Kudos to Yahoo! Philippines for such a one of a kind event that will surely put OPM on top of hit charts today.

14th Cine Europa Film Festival 
Now showing the series of non- mainstream and independent European films at Shang Cineplex
Watching and updating ourselves from the different upcoming movies from time to time is such a great way to stay away from stress in school and one of the best ways to entertain ourselves. A movie date with our family and friends is always worth it and relating ourselves in the story of the movie makes us feel more satisfied on what the movie is all about.  That’s why Shangri- La Plaza brings us various non- mainstream and independent films from different European countries in celebration of the 14th Cine Europa Film Festival.
For so many years, the partnership of Shangri- La Plaza and the European Union in bringing different European films in the Philippines is one way of showing how Filipinos support the film industry.  The Delegation of European Commission and Shangri- La Plaza brought us a series of independent European films from Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Austria, The Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. These independent European films were usually based from the way of life and the facts about the life of the people in a particular European country. The story may look quite serious but it will definitely impart lessons and values to many movie goers.  
Now, if you’re looking for movies which are worth- watching, don’t miss the chance to watch the series of independent European films at Shang Cineplex until September 18, 2011 only.
