Life News: Kathryn Bernardo Gets M-powered with the Newest Canon EOS M100


Manila, Philippines – Even at a young age, Kathryn Bernardo has always had an attachment with a camera. Aside from being always in front of it, she has always secretly wanted to learn more about photography, especially since she wishes to use the power of photography to change people’s lives. Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) recognizes this personal desire of the “Teen Queen” thus making her the perfect fit as the world-renowned camera brand partnered with her in launching its latest addition to its line of mirrorless cameras —the Canon EOS M100.

“We are very happy to welcome Kathryn Bernardo to the Canon family and officially make her part of #TeamCanonPH,” says Benny Yu, Consumer Group Director of CMPI. “We know that Filipinos admire her beyond just being a celebrity. Her heart for others, particularly for children, is an admirable trait. We’re here to support her vision to use her rekindled love for photography to be a platform of inspiration that will eventually benefit others.”

“Our latest addition to our mirrorless cameras, the Canon EOS M100, is a fit for her as she brings her photography game a notch higher. It is perfect for her style with its sleek design, the pictures it produces deliver depth for strong storytelling, and its functionality enhances the experience of taking and sharing photos in an instant,” Yu adds.

Kathryn, 21, discloses where her enthusiasm for photography comes from especially now that she’s endorsing the leading camera brand in the country. Watch her video here: http://www.facebook.com/canonphils/videos/1652674808115932/

“Ever since I was young, I already loved taking photos. I always make it a point to have a camera with me when I travel, or during shoots or events, because I like keeping memories,” adds Bernardo. “My camera is filled with photos of my dogs and my niece! But given the chance and [more] time, I want to enroll in a photography class. Being around professional photographers all the time like Mark Nicdao and Sara Black really inspires me to take photos the way they do,” she shares.

Kathryn expresses she wants to learn how to eventually shoot uncanny and unique images, whether in portrait or street photography, using her Canon EOS M100, and share them in an instant just like a true millennial. “The Canon EOS M100 is a good start for me to learn how to shoot like them. The functions are so easy to manipulate and learn, and I get better quality photos and videos than what I used to get before. This makes documenting and sharing memories a lot easier for me, too,” Kathryn adds.

Reigniting her love for photography is one of the many things the young star would like to pursue to be able to share more meaningful content on her social media, considering that she currently gives high priority to giving back to children in need through the causes she supports.

Maraming may gustong tumulong, kulang lang sa awareness kung paano [There are a lot of people who want to help but they just don’t know how]. Feeling ko job ko yun [I feel that it is my job], to spread awareness and be able to encourage other people to help through what I share on social media—that includes the photos and videos I post,” says Kathryn.

The uncomplicated technology, handiness, connectivity, and uncompromising quality of Canon EOS M100 are the things that Kathryn loves about her new camera. As it is the camera that suits the lifestyle of Filipino millennials like her, it is the perfect tool to add to the range of must-have gadgets, and for sharing professional-like quality photos and videos in an instant.

The young actress at her prime, growing with such style and substance as the years fly, truly speaks multitudes of her character and the success she has accomplished at this point in her life. #getMpowered to take your photos and videos like Kathryn, and share them in an instant with the Canon EOS M100.

Life News: Fifth Rack White Plains Now Open!!!


In business, the right fit can make a whole world of a difference, and there is nothing that quite fits than to work on a passion that you allow to grow. Fashion lover Miel Villamor has found just that as she founded Fifth Rack Lifestyle and Concept Store.

Fifth Rack is a fashion and lifestyle outlet that offers customers the best finds from up-and-coming fashion brands, giving them to unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be found in malls or other retail stores. Located at 141 Katipunan Ave, White Plains, Quezon City, the store has been the go-to location for fashionistas in the South for fashion items from rising local brands and designers.

“I’d like Fifth Rack to be a one-stop shop for all sorts of unique apparel for men and women, but also items for kids, home items, and beauty products,” says Villamor. “We want to establish the image that we have something for everyone, from young professionals, to teens, to even moms and titas.”


Space for Local Brands

Its unique concept lies in putting together and different fashion brands all under one roof. This means that customers can get a taste of different designers and brands without having to hop from shop to shop.

“We are actually the first curated fashion and lifestyle concept store with mostly high-quality local brands and designers in one roof,” Villamor adds.

Not only does this arrangement benefit shoppers looking for something unique, but also the brands themselves by providing them space to showcase their products.

“One of the main goals of the store is to help start-up brands grow whether it is though sales, awareness or opportunity,” she says. “We aim to help these brands gain more awareness by having them showcase their products at the store so they can reach a bigger market.
Villamor also describes the store as a sort of training ground for start-up brands and designers to get their first taste of having a shop. A whole slot at Fifth Rack costs P8,000.00 a month. Meanwhile, a half slot costs P4,500.00 per month.

“This is a good way for brands and designers to get their brand out there and get to know their market’s taste without the hassle of trying to set up their own shop. For the amount of money they’ll be paying, they can have their own signage and spot at the store,” she states.



Passion for Fashion

This is not, however, Villamor’s first try in the world of retail, before Fifth Rack BF and Whiteplains, she manages Row 101 Pop-Up Store, which is a curated bazaar of sorts of different fashion brands and designers that she personally selected. After realizing that this was a great way to get up-and-coming brands out there in the market, she decided to put up something more permanent which is Fifth Rack.

“There was a demand for doing a more permanent store not only from shoppers who wanted this wide selection of unique items but from the brands themselves because now, they were able to break into the consciousness of the shoppers. As much as possible, we really want to promote these brands at a minimal cost,” states Villamor.

However, she admits to not knowing that she’d eventually go into business and was simply propelled by her love of fashion.
“I never planned to be in business; it just sort of happened. I always wanted to do something that was fashion related. I loved fashion, dressing up and putting things together. So, working with different brands that have their own unique aesthetic is really interesting,” admits Villamor.

Ballet Manila Presents Snow White (November 25, 2017)

"Sooomedaaaay my prince will coooome!!!"

That is what basically will go through your head when you watch Ballet Manila's Snow White! If you happen to not live in a cave and have heard about how epic Ballet Manila's Cinderella was, then this is the next to the installment of epicness. But to be fair, epic in terms of production value, given the opulent set design and very detailed costumes. Because on the other hand, Swan Lake was epic in terms of technicality and dance discipline. Ballet Manila's Cinderella and Snow White charm the audiences and bring them to a fantasy world, while their rendition of Swan Lake really shows what ballerinas spend 12 hours a day in the ballet studio for. 

Before everything, there are still 2 shows coming this weekend! 6PM on December 2, and 3PM on December 3! Be sure to get your tickets from TicketWorld while you still can! 

Unfortunately, the traffic was so bad last Saturday that I only made it in time for Act 2. Act 2 mainly features the apple scene. I find it so amazing that Katherine Barkman is the lead again, because honestly, I still feel so tired for her with all the jumps and spins she did for 3 hours during Swan Lake hahaha.
