Liza Soberano is the new Darna!

The guessing game is over! Liza Soberano finally confirms that she is Darna!

Liza Soberano receives Mars Ravelo's Darna komiks from former actress who portrayed it, Angel Locsin.
(From Ogie Diaz's Facebook account)

The former Dolce Amore actress will star in the new movie adaptation of the Pinoy superheroine, which will be directed by Erik Matti.

Darna was last portrayed by Marian Rivera in the second TV adaptation of GMA Network in 2009. Prior to this, Angel Locsin played the role of Mars Ravelo's classic komiks superheroine in a TV series in the same network in 2005.

Now that Liza is Darna, what will happen now to her team up with Enrique Gil? Is he also part of the cast?

UPDATE: I posted this on Twitter and PEP contributor Rose Garcia replied on my tweets. She said Quen will have a separate project.

What's new with Kris Aquino?

Aside from Sarah Geronimo and Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, I am also a self-confessed Kris Aquino fan.

Watch Kris Aquino on her new web show titled The Kris List

Yes, I used to come in late at work because of her previous hit morning talk show Kris TV.  I couldn't leave the house until the show ends especially if it's a travel or a cooking episode.

It was one of my guilty pleasures.

That's why I got a bit sad when I found out that her show would go off air.

Good thing she became more active in social media after leaving ABS-CBN. I still get updates about her kakiyan and her kaartehan, which I both love and hate (sometimes), through her Facebook and Instagram accounts. By the way, she's on Twitter again.

When she had her one-episode travel show on GMA-7 called Trip ni Kris, I made sure I would be back in the Philippines from my vacation in Bangkok, Thailand.

Unfortunately, it will be impossible now to have a follow up episode since Kris had a falling out with her producer.

Anyway, buti na lang pinangatawanan na niya ang pagiging Queen of ALL MEDIA. She now has this web show on her official Facebook account titled The Kris List.

Atmos Fit Elite smart fitness band

New gadget! A cheap smartwatch fitness band.

It's been two months since the strap of my cheap but very dependable Casio watch broke and I still couldn't find a replacement.

Actually, I found one but its price is almost the same price of the watch. Pfft.

Anyway, since I'm using Fitbit Flex (which I got as a giveaway from an event), I thought of getting something that can be a watch and a smart fitness band at the same time.

Then, I saw Kimstore's post (Yay, she's back!) about Atmos Fitness Elite band and its feature.

Very timely, right?

And guess what, it's cheaper than my Casio watch! I bought my Casio at P1,200 in Zalora. Atmos Fit Elite costs P890.

So there, I switched from Fitbit Flex to Atmos Fit Elite, which offers more functions other than counting steps, monitoring sleep, and vibrating alarm.

Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson not "super friends" before Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin

Kim Chiu admits there was a feeling of awkwardness when she and Gerald Anderson first saw each other on the set of their reunion project, Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin. 

This is pretty much what will happen when you stop talking to or working with someone very close to you.

Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson were last paired in the teleserye Tayong Dalawa (2009) and in the movie 24/7 In Love (2012).

During the press conference of Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin, Kim admitted that prior to this project, "Hindi naman kami super friends nito, e."

Obviously, this was caused by their failed relationship some years ago.
