Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera in Bangus Festival Parade

Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang stars Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera graced the Bangus Festival 2009 celebration last April 27, 2009. Dagupenos were happy to see the hunk actor and teleserye princess together.

The show is now on its final week. Expect a shocking and more action-packed finale. Marian Rivera is set to do the next Darna series, while Dingdong Dantes is reportedly going to be paired with Carla Abellana for the remake of Rosalinda.
Thanks to FX Mislang for the photos!

FACES Portraits - Dagupan City

FACES PORTRAITS is a photo studio in Dagupan City that is very close to my heart. I remember joining my mom as she claims her ID picture at the said studio way back in 2001. I met the mother of the owner and they're really nice and accommodating. I was a first year high school student then.
After a few years, it was time for me and my batchmates to say goodbye to each other. Since camera phones were not yet affordable and digital cameras are rather expensive, almost all of us in the batch had our photos taken at the said studio and developed a number of copies to be distributed to every member of the class. 

Today, Faces Portraits is the leading photo studio and wedding videographer in Dagupan City.
 My friend Dana also works as a graphic artist there and I am planning to go there and pay them a visit by next month.

Here are some of the photos taken during the wedding of the owners Jesson and Apple:

Who is Mocha Uson?

If you are a fan of the men's magazine Maxim, you've probably seen her steamy photos in this month's issue. She is also set to appear in a sexy-horror movie called "Ang Sumpa". You often see her on tv singing and dancing like a pro with three of her back-up dancers. Yes, I am talking about Mocha Uson, the lead singer of the controversial all-female group, Mocha Girls.

Margaux Uson, or more popularly known as Mocha was actually born and raised in Dagupan City. She spent her elementary and high school years in Mother Goose and later on took up a medical course in the University of Sto. Tomas. Her mom, who is a well-known doctor in the city, wanted her to be her successor. Still, Mocha decided to pursue with her first love which is performing.
From a shy performer to a liberated one. A lot of people criticized her when her unflattering photos kissing her band mate was published in a tabloid. However, she used the issue on her own advantage. She is now known as one of the few female personalities who openly admits that she is bisexual. 

If you want to know more about Mocha and the rest of the girls, go to their official website at http://www.mocha.com.ph

You can view some of her photos at the Mocha Uson Photo Gallery.

What can you say about Mocha Uson? Come on, share your thoughts!

Mouse House Cafe - Dagupan City

Mouse House Cafe is one of the first internet cafes in Dagupan City. I remember going there with my father a long time ago to surf the internet and check my email. We used to go there to meet some of his friends too.

It's nice to know that the said internet cafe is still alive and kicking. Some of my friends usually go there to print some tarps and photos. Memories :)

My only complain about the place is that their rates are expensive. Php 40 per hour is just too much for ordinary surfers like me.

Here are the services offered: Desktop Publishing, Photography and Photo Enhancement, Printing, Advertising and more.

Check their website out and see some cool photos of their in-house photographers.
