GMA Films is now back from their hiatus that started after the release of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza‘s Imagine You and Me.
The filming has started for the principal photography for the production’s comeback movie, Kambal, Karnabal, starring Derrik Monasterio, Super Tekla, Kiray Celis, Jo Berry, and Kim Domingo. It is directed by Adolf Alix Jr.
It is said that this will mark the start of GMA Films continuous production of movies.
Monasterio shared that he’s very excited about the comeback movie and he’s thankful for those who trusted his skills as an actor.
GMA Films produced some award-winning movies such as Jose Rizal, Muro-Ami, Sa Pusod ng Dagat, Death Row, and a few more others.
After Felipe Gozon took over the film production branch of GMA Network, it was placed on hiatus for about five years.
As they have put out successful movies, they have also produced not-so-successful movies such as Boy Pick-Up: The Movie starring Ogie Alcasid, My Kontrabida Girl starring Rhian Ramos and Aljur Abrenica, Patient X starring Richard Gutierrez and Cristine Reyes, Batanes: Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggan starring Iza Calzado and Taiwanese actor Ken Chu of Meteor Garden.

Despite the network rivalry, actress and television personality Rhian Ramos expressed her gratefulness towards both networks.
In an interview about her movie with JM de Guzman, she expressed the reason why she’s thankful to the two networks after she has been asked if she plans to transfer.
She said that even if she’s from GMA Network, the Kapamilya network never treated her like an outsider. “Hindi nila ako tinuturing na parang outsider, they always let me work with their top leading men.”
The actress admitted that she actually hasn’t received any formal offer for her to change networks, but she doesn’t mind as she’s still enjoying living the best of both worlds.
“I have a station that supports my dreams, GMA, and they’re very understanding towards me with all the things that I want to achieve. I’m also very grateful to ABS-CBN because they’re very kind to me, even if I’m from another network.”
On the other hand, she reassured that she’s still happy being a Kapuso and the reason why she’s not doing any TV shows as of the moment is because she’s not yet “ready.”
Rhian stars in an upcoming movie with JM de Guzman titled Kung Paano Siya Nawala.
Despite the Network Rivalty, ABS-CBN have always opened its doors to the Kapuso artists to cross over and let them promote their projects.
GMA-7 stars have visited the Kapamilya network even for a brief time as most of them made guest appearances the Network’s shows in order to promote movies where they co-star with an ABS-CBN talent, or was c0-produced by Star Cinema.

With the recent discrimination that gone viral, let’s look back to other well-known personalities who did not escape such.
Who can forget the controversial game of Gilas Pilipinas against Australia‘s team that resulted to a huge fight at the mid-game of FIBA World Cup Asian qualifier.
The fight did not start from nothing as the Gilas players claimed that the members of the opposing team called them midgets and monkeys.
A socialite actress once uttered the words to Wilma: “Pwede ba maligo ka pagkatapos niyan?
“May nag-discriminate sa akin, isang socialite actress. Oo, nagtrabaho na ako noon. Kasi kausap ko ‘yung asawa niya so may kausap din akong friend, most of my friends are boys. So baka kasi dahil nga lumaki ako sa neighborhood ng boys.
“So kausap ko ‘yung asawa niya gani-ganiyan, so ‘yung asawa niya tawa nang tawa because komedyante ako. Alam mo ba humarap sa akin [at sinabi niya] ‘Puwede ba maligo ka pagkatapos niyan ha.’”
Fashion designer Veejay was once denied entry at high-end lounge and bar Valkyrie in Taguig.
The designer showed her California State ID that indicated her female name and gender marker, however, the bouncer still muttered, “Lalaki pa rin yan.”
She said that this was her second time being denied in the club because of their no-cross-dressers policy.
The Miss International Queen 2015 was also denied entry to Valkyrie because of her “inappropriate” outfit.
She took it to Facebook to share her disappointment as she was wearing a simple neon dress with sleeves at the time.
BB Gandanghari was denied entry to Aruba Bar & Restraurant in Metrowalk. She was not allowed to enter as cross-dressing was not allowed at the place.
She was supposed to watch Rannie Raymundo‘s concert, however, she decided not to push through.
Bianca once admitted that she’s a victim of bullying and discrimination because of her tan skin.
She shared her experience in one episode of Boy Abunda’s The Bottomline.
“Sinasabi lang nila negra, baluga. Masakit talaga.
“Hindi ko maintindihan. ‘Di ba Pilipino tayo? We are supposed to have brown skin. It was a mystery to me bakit binu-bully ang brown skinned?”
She added that it hurts more because she once had a crush at the guy who bullied her.
The DJ and television personality revealed that he was bullied as a kid just because he’s Indian.
“Nandoon ‘yung notion ng five-six, na mabaho [ang mga Indian]. Lahat ng mga kaklase ko, pinagti-trip-an ako. Parang ‘ah, ayaw naming makipag-basketball sa iyo kasi mabaho ka. Bawal kang makipaglaro sa amin.’ As in solid discrimination, talagang heart-crushing. Masakit talaga.”
A few years ago, Broadway Diva Lea Salonga shared that she was once rejected for the role of Eliza Doolittle in ‘My Fair Lady’.
The reason was that she she’s Asian. But instead of dwelling on the rejection, it urged her to prove that race has nothing to do with any talent.
“I experience bullying in different forms” the 2015 Miss Universe stated. “I felt like I was the odd one out growing up in the province because I was half-Filipino and half-German, so I wasn’t full blooded Filipina and of course I was the tallest in my class and I felt kind of awkward. I went through an awkward phase and even when I was an actress, there was a lot of scrutiny there as well.”
She also shared that she had a hard time finding a job in England just because she’s a female.
Rhian shared on Instagram and unpleasant experience while having a vacation in France.
She said that she encountered a racist lady in a restaurant but instead of arguing, she brushed off the incident.
In an interview with GMA Network’s news program “24 Oras”, Zyrus opened up about his experience using public bathrooms in the Philippines. He said that whenever he approaches a restroom, he gets “the look” from people, which leads him to sometimes use the separate stall for people with disability, just to avoid conflict.
The most recent incident of viral discrimination was KaladKaren‘s encounter at a H&J Sportsbar in Poblacion, Makati.
She and her friends were denied entry by the security personnel because according to the latter, gay people are not allowed inside.

It’s the holiday season again and I’m sure you’re already preparing your gift wishlist. If I got that correctly, might as well I share you an exciting new way of letting your family and friends know what do you want to receive for Christmas or any other occasion.
Admit it, even if we know people more than they know themselves, when it comes to gift-giving, our thoughts go blackout. We always say they have everything already. Uhmm.. I know, nonsense. They will always have their gift list, but we are just too shy to ask.
And yes, I have quite a solution for that.
Introducing the Things I Like mobile application. An app created by a tech company based in Hong Kong has finally solved the puzzle. Things I Like aims to let people interact more with each other by posting pictures of what they want to have for their birthday, for Christmas, or for no reason at all.

Voila, here’s what your profile will look like. This will set as the dashboard of all the things you want to get for a specific feast.
And your news feed. Here, you will see the things your friends post on their wall–the gifts they want to receive.
If you want to share what you like, you can repost the things you see on your feed or you upload a photo of it yourself.
After, choose a category. This is typically what occasion or when do you want that gift to be given to you.
For ideas, you can check the ‘Shuffle & Search’ tool where you can find at the bottom left. You can modify the settings in which you can see the posts that have the ‘Most LIKES’ and ‘Most REPOSTS’.
