Here I create my own three feature stories of 2015 on Wattpad.

Becoming a professional novel author to produce high quality storytelling on most commercially available physical book print copies may not be easy to qualify to work on various mainstream book publishers. For starters, young or old, they may create their own experimental, original story craft in any form of genre—such as drama, fantasy, action, etc.—and share it through many Internet users to read who have the power to judge their own favorite story content by means of “vote”, using a social-based online freeware novel site Wattpad.

Over 14 million feature social-based novel titles on Wattpad have been produced by various Internet users as online amateur novelists all over the world for the past 10 years. In the Philippines, over 10 thousand feature social-based novel titles on Wattpad have been produced by various online Filipino amateur novelists—mostly some female high school or college students—and featured on various local pocketbook such as Summit Media’s Pop Fiction, Viva-PSICOM, Precious Pages Lib Creatives Pastrybug, and many others. The select feature Filipino-based Wattpad story was also adapted on mainstream movies and television.

One of the most popular Wattpad stories all over the world were Anna Todd’s After, Natali Kim’s Infinity.Dream, Age of Adaline, sci-fi adult cartoon Neptune Road, I Love You, Bestfriend, and many others. In the Philippines, there were Diary ng Panget, She’s Dating The Gangster, Talk Back And You’re Dead, Marcelo Santos III’s Para Sa Hopeless Romantic, Noringai’s Bagito, Ilurvbook’s The Bet, forgottenGlimmer’s Reyna ng Kamalasan, erinedipity’s The Break-up Planner, etc.

This time in 2015, as being a blogger and remain unemployed, I will try my best to create my own original story on Wattpad, although some portion lacked expansion of story plot due to time-consuming and constraints of exploring my ideas. Presenting my own three novels such as Kahiyas Singers, Ang Tatay Kong Nakikisalamuha ng Boyfriend Ko, and Nikki Meets Sophie.

My Current Feature Wattpad Novel 2015

As I mentioned earlier, it’s up for me to try to expand or revise the quality of my feature Wattpad story in due time, only if you ever suggest to comment for me. In the meantime, here are the following overviews, with links to click to visit:

  • Kahiyas Singers. Three girls Maicy, Bessy, and Aira bonded together to sing as Kahiyas Singers group when there were kids and teen years. When they broke up as they turned young adult, there were three separate events where Maicy became a public elementary music school teacher, Bessy became a resto-bar rock band singer, and Aira became a successful solo pop singer. In spite that Aira had several times of intrigues as being reported by various local Philippine entertainment press on a fact that she was hidden from being a intentional prostitute, she had to continue her struggles in showbiz career without revealing her hidden truth to the public. Maicy and Bessy, on the other hand, had begun to reunite their friendship as they attempt to reunite with Aira, whether a success or a failure.
  • Ang Tatay Kong Nakikisalamuha ng Boyfriend Ko. A responsible father who worked as a psychologist doctor in a private high-class hospital had gave respect to his loving 16-ear old daughter after his wife died from pregnancy conceiving problem. One day, in a famous historical park in Manila, he, together with her daughter, saw his daughter’s boyfriend. As he often gave a respect and joy with the two, he was likely intend to mingle his daughter’s boyfriend.
  • Nikki Meets Sophie. As part of a post-season of hit daytime family drama Be Careful With My Heart on ABS-CBN, I often create my own original Wattpad fan fiction story together with current airing of Janella Salvador’s Oh My G. In the year 2015, 16-year old Nikki-Grace Lim who will graduate from high school often watch the TV show Oh My G, the story of a 16-year old Sophie Cepeda who missed the passing of her parents who were murdered by a gunshot of many criminals. Both Nikki and Sophie had similar physical faces. When Nikki was slept, she dreamed and entered Sophie’s world.

My Upcoming Feature Wattpad Novel

If I could ever complete the story as shown above, here are my upcoming Wattpad story by next year:

  • Ang Bunsong Kapatid na Babae Kong Nakikisalamuha ng Boyfriend Ko. A second installment of Nakikisalamuha series, it is a story of two teen girl siblings when a 13-year old girl often met and mingle a 16-year old older sister’s boyfriend.
  • Ang Nanay Kong Nakikisalamuha ng Girlfriend Ko. A third installment of Nakikisalamuha series, a loving mother often met her son’s girlfriend.
  • Mallows Necklace. Based from public domain original version of MarNella Wattpad fan fiction Infinity Necklace by Katrina Sanchez with a further revision of my own version, Nikki-Grace Lim, who wore a simple, casual “Mallows” nylon string necklace made from a gift of her boyfriend Niccolo before she left for a vacation abroad, was lost during her 18th birthday debut party.

Janella Salvador’s Concept TV Show “Oh My G”, A Typical Crossover Adoption of Her Favorite Expression

January 6, 2015

A billboard for promoting the concept teen-oriented daytime TV soap “Oh My G” based from Janella Salvador’s (as Sophie Cepeda on her show) popular tagline “Oh my gee!” from her former portrayal as Nikki Grace-Lim of hit daytime TV family drama Be Careful With My Heart. (Uploaded image from Twitter courtesy of ABS-CBN.)

The hit daytime family drama Be Careful With My Heart has ended. In order to succeed the former one being aired every pre-noontime, the creative team of ABS-CBN Entertainment Group has attempted to produce a concept TV show not only delight the fans of loyal adult TV viewers of the said former show but also some young viewers in a modest, positive reception of storytelling. The working title was “O.M.G.”, and after a few months of voluntary brainstorming session to create a story done by various scripwriters and even casting, they revealed a typical concept TV novel show Oh My G, based from Janella Salvador’s popular expression “Oh my gee!” from her previous portrayal as Nikki Grace-Lim of Be Careful With My Heart.

Partly seem original, though, isn’t it? That was the only way to offer for this 16-year old teen actress as part of being a member of ABS-CBN Star Magic Glee since she was joined in mid-decade 2000s (following after her TV guessings with her mother Jenine Desiderio on Contrapelo Sa Pula Sa Puti segment of top-rated and longest-running noontime variety TV stage show Eat Bulaga) before she was appeared on the said daytime family drama on ABS-CBN in 2012, having with her current physical height of 5 feet and 6 or 7 inches tall. Last late October 2014 in an interview on the show Aquino And Abunda Tonight a few hour after a presscon of the last 46th-episode series finale of Be Careful With My Heart and few nights before Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2014 finals night, Janella revealed that she was ready to work the said concept teen-oriented daily TV show, in spite of the fact that the creative team of the TV network did not have a serious offer of original acting portrayal craft for her who had only a current limited quality of her acting stint.

With this concept TV novel show, the staff of Oh My G would be confident to give delight for the TV viewers as they promised that they would try their best to improve and enhance her acting skills from her acting workshop session and even the content of the story as much as possible, depending on the reception of various critics of Philippine entertainment press. As other ABS-CBN teen female artists such as Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Barreto, and Liza Soberano (as part of “ASAP It Girls” member of noontime variety musical TV show A.S.A.P. [“All Star Afternoon Party”] on its current 20th-year season) were competedly supported by the majority of teenage fans, Janella Salvador’s current personal figure as a simple yet delightful teenage actress in the history of Philippine entertainment industry may be likely dedicated to veteran actress Gloria Romero who was now a few decades of her experience.

But this is not the first concept TV show that uses a near-crossover female teen portrayal of the former one with her favorite expression as mentioned above. Even various Hollywood feature 3D animation movie introduced an upcoming release of crossover co-cast portrayal, such as Talking Penguins from Madagascar (already released in TV series on Nickelodeon) and the yellow-skinned Minions of Despicable Me (see illustration below). And even a concept classic feature 3D animation PC action game in late mid-90s Serious Sam was slightly imitated the characters with its different settings from the controversial violent yet popular classic early mid-90s MS-DOS-based PC action game Doom Trilogy and its classic successor Wolfenstein.

The Trailer, Her Popular Expression, And The Plot

Janella Salvador’s popular expression “Oh my gee!” had stated several times on her former portrayal as Nikki Grace-Lim of the entire episodes of Be Careful With My Heart. The word “gee” alone may not just indicate “Lord Holy God of Heavens Above” or “Saviour Jesus Christ”, but rather indicate and implies only her fictional, personal gesture and emotional cuteness. The adult TV viewers of the show had often curious her simple yet effective portrayal as a possible sign of an intentional loyalty to her aside from the main cast Jodi Sta. Maria as Maya and Richard Yap as Ricardo “Ser chief” Lim and even its various supporting cast.

The creative team had decided they would adapt her popular expression to become a mainstream series, and claimed it would be a better successor of Be Careful With My Heart. Before, the concept TV show “O.M.G.”—previously petitioned to define as, say for example, “Oh My Giselle”, “Owesome Misty Girl”, or “Only Me Gracious”—was previously available only for iWanTV app on prepaid mobile smartphone service SIM card ABS-CBN Mobile as a typical 5-minute mini series skit, according to the presscon last early December 2014 after the final airing of Be Careful With My Heart, but because of the request of the majority of many fans of Janella Salvador, ABS-CBN management had granted to do this.

In the official trailer of the show seen on ABS-CBN VHF Channel 2 at the end of 2014 until present and even on YouTube in HD 1080p format, Janella Salvador portrays as 16-year old Sophie Cepeda. Sad and alone at home that often missed her parents, she took on her laptop personal computer in color LED-backlit LCD display with Internet to access various social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter. As she was accidentally typed “#GODISNOWHERE”, an annonymous FB user account under “Friend Request” icon that often called “GOD” had contacted, realizing she was often said “God is no-where”. Though “GOD” may likely said “God is now here” as seemed so confusing with the same text “#GODISNOWHERE” rather than “#GodIsNowHere”, Sophie was shocked on the monitor, and she said softly on her mind, “Ooohhhh—-mmyyyyy—-geeeee?!?!”

Before the official release of an official trailer on TV, the “prequel” teaser trailer that uploaded and released two months ago on YouTube showed that Sophie was trapped in her dream after a blackout on her home, as while she was holding her mobile smartphone finding a way to trace a strong cellphone signal in a clear grassy mountainous area she fell on the bottom and her arms was held by an unknown man. When she looked at him as “GOD”, she was surprisingly said, “Oh my gee!”

And here is the latest trailer of the show:

The behind-the-scene of the show states about its concept, claiming it was dedicated from being a devotee of Saint Teresa of Avila for Janella and her mother Jenine Desiderio and ABS-CBN president Ms. Charo Santos-Concio:

TV vievers, and even the the loyal viewers of Be Careful With My Heart, should try to admit to watch the main female 16-year old teen characters of the concept TV show as she enters the scene as a 4th-level high school student, according to the behind-the-scene photo clips of official Facebook page of the show. The two teenage boys at the age of 17-years old, namely Gabby (Marlo Mortel) and Harry (Manolo Pedrosa), often compete each other to meet and have an affair with Sophie.

Such typical plot of teen love triangle of the TV show may be marked a possible strategy to attract for many young fans on which two male artists would be compatible to form as a love-team for Janella Salvador in real life. Marlo Mortel—who was portrayed as Niccolo of Be Careful With My Heart as Nikki’s boyfriend—was the first, and later Manolo Pedrosa; both of which were seperately appeared on separate episode guessings of longest-running drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya with Janella Salvador. Previously, ABS-CBN had conceptualized a typical modern-day epic drama Princess And I in 2012 when the show had set up three male actors Enrique Gil, Khalil Ramos, and Daniel Padilla, claiming on which of these three would be capable for Kathryn Bernardo (portrayed as Mikay as a lost princess in Bhutan), but in the end the show chose Daniel.

The Shooting Scene Format

Just as in the past and present ABS-CBN TV soaps such as Be Careful With My Heart, Dugong Buhay, Juan de la Cruz, Got to Believe, The Legal Wife, Bagito, Dream Dad, Forevermore, and many others, the show will still use a true 24-image-direct-capture-set-frames-per-second digital movie in high definition 1080p widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio Motion JPEG 2000 format. Though the original format may be downscaled to letterbox 4:3 480i/p scene compatible to current 525-line NTSC-M analog TV broadcast, the full HD content may be either re-broadcast using future roll-out of ISDB-T or may be streamed on broadband Internet via iWanTV or But for more exciting viewing experience, the original 1080p resolution may be easily remaster using a near native 4K detail upscaling digital video graphics hardware found on most 4K UHD resolution LED-backlit LCD TV displays such as Sony and Samsung to become 4K resolution 2160p scene.

However, I only expect to wish that ABS-CBN—even other competing local terrestrial TV networks such as GMA, TV5, PTV, etc.—should try to purchase 4K UHD resolution digital video camera unit and broadcast on trial ISDB-T transmission using a newer HEVC video codec that’s 30% less data than a standard H.264 video codec, even on possible production of 4K UHD resolution content on future brand new ABS-CBN TV soaps.

The Official Theme Song?

On the trailer of the show, there claims its theme song performed by Janella Salvador often uses a typical concept song music tune of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. However, due to a possible infringement, the TV show now uses a Janella Salvador version official theme song I Can originally performed by Donna Cruz from ’80s classic movie Do Re Mi.

Closing And Announcement

Although I was open to support the concept TV show of 2015 as being a fan of Janella Salvador and even Sarah Geronimo, and as being the owner and author of this blog and remain unemployed, I was often disappointed for heeding my own lone petition to—but I am not reflected as an employee of—ABS-CBN to try to adapt Kimberly Joy Villanueva’s (iluvrbooks) Wattpad novel The Bet on TV to be possibly portrayed by Marlo Mortel and Janella Salvador as Drake and Sophia instead, from the originally planned 2015 movie version portrayed by successful primetime soap Forevermore stars Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, now currently on-going as claimed. I was often so proud to both Enrique and Liza for offering such TV soap as director Cathy Garcia Molina had a way to enhance their acting skills as a result of intentional increase of their charisma thru the viewers, as well as the surprising increase of visitors visiting the shooting location—called “La Preza” farm—in Benguet as a typical tourism spot in reality.

So, what’s next with my own Plan B petition? If the supposed release of Philippine movie adaptation version of Wattpad novel The Bet under ABS-CBN Star Cinema (under the ongoing negotiation with Summit Media Publishing that produces Wattpad-adapted story Pop Fiction pocketbooks) might fail, I wish to author Kimberly Joy Villanueva that her novel should try to adapt on U.S. movies instead, just as Paramount Pictures had successfully planned to adapt Anna Todd’s (imaginator1D) Wattpad novel After now released on books only on U.S. under Simon & Schuster publication. Oh well, the possible negotiation might take a few long years to grant Kim’s wish, seriously. If so, then her novel may be with slight changes regarding re-enhancing original story plot and surnaming of main characters Drake and Sophia (for example, “Steiffer” for Drake and “Tyndrall” for Sophia).

The second Plan B? I also wish to Kimberly Joy Villanueva (as being a fan of Taylor Swift) to try to adapt her partly finished Wattpad novel My Imaginary Boyfriend to be featured on TV fantasy drama anthology Wansapanataym on ABS-CBN. My own suggested casting—although remain unofficial in real life—would be Miles Ocampo as Annalisse from the novel with two male stars to be announced, one human and another imaginary.

The third Plan B? Watch out for my own original drafted Wattpad story to be released soon as I was already created my user account on the said online novel creation. Problem is, I was currently alone at home as of now, so I was not able to have a workshop with Pandayan Bookstore out of home to show my sample story craft but I’ll give my best as much as I can.

Oh, by the way, the upcoming concept youth-oriented TV soap Oh My G would likely dedicate to all feature Filipino-based Wattpad novels such as She’s Dating With A Gangster, The Bet, Hopeless Romantic, and many others written by various amateur online novelists featured on Summit Media Pop Fiction pocketbooks as I often loyal to them. I thought that the quality of the story of the show would be likely optimized to become realistic compared to various Wattpad-based online Filipino novels.

Also, I also dedicate for being loyal of reading 13-year old Canadian author Natali Kim’s (likely child portral story) Wattpad novel Infinity.Dream that may be possibly adapted in local Philippine TV only with full consent and approval. (The possible casting as I suggest if approved would be Mutya Orquia as Maira.)

Oh My G airs January 19, 2015 on ABS-CBN VHF Channel 2 Mega Manila and various terrestrial analog TV channels on ABS-CBN regional stations in letterbox SD format analog TV broadcast, with re-run in Full HD 1080p format on iWanTV (exclusively on Sky Broadband and Bayan DSL subscribers in select Metro Manila areas), iWanTV app on ABS-CBN Mobile, and 

Natali Kim’s “Infinity.Dream” on Wattpad: A Likely Typical Musical Children Drama Novel?

December 20, 2014

Graphical art cover of Natali Kim’s Wattpad novel Infinity.Dream.

In the past, we were often familiar to aware the physical release of every children’s book with an even modest, family-oriented contents that may be either educational or entertaining. Gone are the days of hit fairytale book Harry Potter adapted thru movies, various Grimm’s fairytale series, fairytales adapted thru Walt Disney Pictures, or even various children’s short stories on literature textbooks. But now, not only on a conventional paper-and-ink-based physical book material but also on electronic-based reading material—known as E-books—found on modern-day E-ink tablet display device or even Apple-based or Android-based tablet PCs to enjoy child-friendly-oriented reading contents.

And what if a worldwide leading fan-based online novel creation Wattpad may open the door for a possible project to produce child-oriented novel contents? Of about millions of feature Wattpad fan-based novel titles created by millions of amateur novelists around the world (thousands of which were in the Philippines), majority of every contents—in spite of its sensibility of every story—were often either a romance, action, suspense, fantasy, or horror, and the characters on the majority of which were only teens and adults. Not all feature Wattpad novels may feature a main character of a child, though. But here I’ll share a feature Wattpad novel having a major portrayal of a female child and even a supporting child characters written and created by Canadian teen novelist Natali Kim (EternallyNatali) who joined on her Wattpad account since summer of 2013 at her age of 13.

Entitled Infinity.Dream, the novel portrays a 9-year old girl named Maira Treslyn who—wishing to become as a gifted professional child pop music singer in the long run—wanted to honor her father as a politician being framed of graft and corruption charges. Despite of many sensitive environment that might clouded and plagued her normal psychological and social interaction, she as a minor was often faced many challenges and obstacles that might endanger her music entertainment career, such as bullying inside school and many places; and intrigues and controversies (even surrounded by paparazzi).

I became loyal for reading her crafted novel as I thought I would likely watching a Japanese animé cartoon on movies or TV, since the story settings were a typical fictionalized “fantasy” world different on our real world, and the appearance of every characters were likely related on various Japanese manga cartoon. Currently, her novel registers an average of 500 to more than 1,000 reads per chapter or about a total of more than 10,000 reads of entire chapters from June to December 2014, and it will continue to grow web reading audience count by means of promotional campaign to support it thru Facebook or Twitter.

Thought to be slightly a child-oriented Wattpad children novel in spite of some little bit of foul language in English such as “f” and “s” and some sensitive mild explicit context that requires parental or adult discretion when reading with a minor (currently “PG-13” on the novel being moderated by Wattpad webmaster staff), she who was unminded to follow the rules was often cautious when entertaining her own story craft of the role of every fictional child characters concerning racial age-related issues. Although if a feature Wattpad novel has a teen character so therefore its genre should be in “teen fiction” category, it was unclear whether Wattpad may suggested to include “child fiction” category for Natali Kim’s novel, even on future child-friendly-oriented novel.

Possible Adaptation?

Natali Kim’s signature Wattpad novel—currently at 18 chapters being crafted from June to December 2014 and will continue to finish it at projected total of 50 to 60 chapters by 2015 or 2016 with a consent of her parents and even her busy schedule such as studying, various school activities, and family bonding—may be a part of candidate adaptation through either a movie or TV, whether animated drawing or camera-shoot-based. If this would be possible in the future only if she could finish it, the primary step to negotiate may be a various Japanese animated TV production companies such as Toei, Fuji TV, TV Tokyo, TMS, TV Mainichi, or anything. Another optional step to adapt may be rather produce it in either animated cartoon or camera-scene-based in the U.S. or Canada, filtering out some foul language and sensitive story plot from her original text of Wattpad novel.

But what if there were a possibility that various local TV media outlets in emerging countries—say, the Philippines—would adapt Natali Kim’s novel with a full consent and respect, just as I—the blogger based in the Philippines—had discover it? For example—even if this might be possible in reality in the near future as I rather suggest only—local TV network ABS-CBN would try to adapt her novel, re-substitute from original surname of every fictional characters and choosing the right scene shooting location in real world while preserving the original story plot of her novel in a typical Filipino-pop-culture-flavored TV show concept. (That is, 40% original story plot and 60% re-substituted character and location settings.)

In 2013, Summit Media Publishing Philippines had begun to compile various feature Filipino-based Wattpad novel titles being managed by Pandayan Workshop for various amateur online novelists such as She’s Dating The Gangster, The Bet, Hopeless Romantic, The Filthy Rich Bitch, Seducing Drake Palma, AFGITMOLFM, etc., under a signature pocketbook production Pop Fiction. Viva Entertainment Philippines and PSICOM negotiated each other to produce a physical copy of four-part series Diary ng Panget and two-part series Talk Back And You’re Dead before adapting in movie version.

The Top Play Views Of Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2014 Music Videos On YouTube

September 30, 2014
himig handog p pop love song 2014 music video youtube daniel padilla janella salvador

Daniel Padilla’s Simpleng Tulad Mo and Janella Salvador’s Mahal Kita Pero, both of which were the two song entries of the recent Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2014, tops the two music videos in terms of higher play view count on YouTube with a projected 1 million. (Screenshot courtesy of ABS-CBN Star Music thru YouTube.)

Not only we would desire to see a current number of play views of various music videos owned by Vevo (a collaboration with MCA Universal, Sony, and EMI) on YouTube, but we might ever desire to see a current number of play views on Philippine-based commercial music videos on the said popular video sharing site as of today. One of the recent example was the hit Korean music video of Psy’s Gangnam Style in 2012, registered a total of over 1 billion play view count with an estimate of over hundreds of million Internet media audiences around the world.

Here I visit YouTube and I research the current number of play views of feature music videos of Himig Handog P–Pop Love Songs 2014. Just as we would read on Billboard charts or even locally–made music charts by means of song request, this blog will only mention these title feature videos—without mentioning its number values—from lesser number of play views to a greater number of play views. Some feature music videos that have had a highly registered number of play views may reflect on depending an estimate number of Internet media Filipino audiences—say, only tens of thousands—as well as the majority of the supporter of fans of the artists being performed on video. On the other hand, some feature videos that had lesser play view count may have a possibility of high quality “song theme message” as an important winning piece to have a bigger award on the finale of performance night. So here are the list with a remark of the impact of the contents:

TOP 15: JOVIT BALDIVINO – Dito. Though the quality of every theme of song lyrics was so much better as well as its music video, the song having with sentimental soft musical piece may not so attractive to every upbeat music-conscious young listeners of the new generation.

TOP 14: JED MADELA – If You Don’t Want To Fall. Very orchestrating to hear Jed Madella’s powerful singing skills that’s applausable to good reviews. But were there someone applause for the fans of other artists on the said song festival?

TOP 13: EBE DANCEL and ABRA – Halik Sa Hangin. An interesting song dedicated for the fans of said two respective artists, one who was a former lead singer of the band Sugarfree, and another a well-performed fliptop rapper seen on YouTube.

TOP 12: MARION AUNOR featurig RIZZA CABRERA and SEED BUNYE – Pumapag-Ibig. The bossa nova music style may be ideal for rich-income class community, if someone would be interested to hear whether the content may have world-class quality.

TOP 11: JESSA ZARAGOZA – Bumabalik Ang Nagdaan. A song ideal for the said artist, will the former fans be able to inform and support her special comeback to entertain for every Filipino masses, just as she became famous in the ’90s?

TOP 10: BUGOY DRILON – Umiiyak Ang Puso. A very emotional song, there may be a gradual apreciation on the majority of the audience to support its content being performed by this artist who had a further improvement of his singing skills.

TOP 9: JURIS – Hindi Wala. A very refreshing song, the fans of this female artist may have had a fair nod to hear that.

TOP 8: HAZEL FAITH DELA CRUZ – Everything Takes Time. Remember this candidate artist who was also appeared as a co-star on Be Careful With My Heart as a lyricist for the song festival? I often got informed on an informercial before a break of the said daytime family TV soap (in some episodes before the target date of the songfest finale concert) together with Janella Salvador.

TOP 7: JUGS and TEDDY – Walang Basagan ng Trip. Dedicated for the fans of respective rock group Itchyworms and Rocksteady, the music was much a craze; much banging to hear the song as a wake-up call for person’s emotional frustration.

TOP 6: ANGELINE QUINTO – Hanggang Kailan. Though her powerful loud voice with high notes carrying with that feature song had controlled so much, some had often criticized that they don’t like such kind of her singing skills but rather wanted a simple and refreshing singing vocalization.

TOP 5: MORISSETTE AMON – Akin Ka Na Lang. A possible winning piece, the majority of the audience could be hardly applause and amaze for her powerful very high notes, a difficult skill that other ordinary first-time female singers can’t.

TOP 4: MICHAEL PANGILINAN – Pare Mahal Mo Raw Ako. According to a reliable exposé, this song that was intentionally dedicated for most lesbians-gays-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) community seemed so little sensitive when observing the content of its lyrics.

TOP 3: KZ Tandingan – Mahal Ko o Mahal Ako. As she gradually improve her singing skills with some portion of high notes and effective emotion to sing, the supporter of this artist based in Mindanao as well as many critics often satisfied to hear such refreshing song melody.

TOP 2: JANELLA SALVADOR – Mahal Kita Pero. Whether this song would be effective as a typical themesong for a pair-up with Janella Salvador and Marlo Mortel in future TV or movie projects after a near conclusion of two-year run Be Careful With My Heart in November 2014 as speculated, we’ll find out soon. [Or you may check out my Twitter post on my song craft to the artist as an alternative for her future TV or movie show project.] Thanks for the support of her fans.

TOP 1: DANIEL PADILLA – Simpleng Tulad Mo. The KathNiel fans fever continues to support for outshining this feature song being performed by this artist as their favorite, giving a intense impact of perception to the audience.

So, what are the actual overview of various songs of the said 2014 season song festival as well as its music videos? Here are my own views:

  • Mahal Kita Pero. This song may be apply to a typical teenage relationship on hit daytime family drama Be Careful With My Heart where Nikki (played by actress Janella Salvador who sang the song during audio recording session) who had given an intentional promises to have a future affair with her boyfriend Niccolo (played by actor Mario Mortel). For Janella, this was the first time to work such matter even though—through the tutor of her mother Janine Desiderio—she doesn’t have a future recording project.
  • Simpleng Tulad Mo. If you watch the music video of the song on YouTube, it may be regarded as an extended epilogue of hit teen drama Got to Believe as both Joaquin (played by actor Daniel Padilla who sang the song) and Chichay (played by actress Kathryn Bernardo) paint together separately a typical pop artwork of graphical fantasy of teenage relationship. The theme of the song is about a simple and ordinary life of every manners of a boy or a girl in spite of lack of experience.
  • Walang Basagan ng Trip. This typical “Itchyworms versus Rocksteady” song tandem performed by respective lead singers of the band Jugs and Teddy as current co-host of daytime talent show Showtime on ABS-CBN gave a serious craze of its theme about a rumbling romantic relationship during nightly outdoor activities after work, such as r0ck music clubs or concerts.
  • Akin Ka Na Lang. This potential winning song piece performed by The Voice Philippines Season 1 finalist  Morisette Ammon—who also sang the theme song of afternoon drama Moon of Desire—often register with perfect high notes with feelings, on whick its main theme is about an important trust of a chosen relationship.
  • Bumabalik Ang Nagdaan. While Jessa Zaragosa only became dire of future recording project after she became famous on her hit songs Bakit Pa and Di Ba’t Ikaw in early 2000s, this song is almost compatible to her to sing as a “special comeback”. The theme of the song is about how to restore romantic sincerity and dignity from painful relationship of the past.
  • Mahal Ko o Mahal Ako. Singer KZ Tandingan had slowly improved for registering some high notes with this song feature about intentional chosen incompatible relationship.
  • Hindi Wala. In my thought, this song was originally intended to perform by Callalily lead singer Kean Cipriano, but due to his busy activity it was later turned over to former MYMP lead singer Juris to sing a piece. The theme was about indecision to love each other.
  • Halik Sa Hangin. Former Sugarfree lead singer Ebe Dancel and fliptop rapper Abra collaborate each other to sing a darker theme of the song about a lone man who had a painful break-up of a sour relationship with his girlfriend. On a normal lyrics he took a momentary comfort zone for a long time, but on rap lyrics because of his frustration he was endangered to have a suicide.
  • Pumapag-Ibig. The melody of its background acoustic music and the content of the lyrics of a song was almost bossa nova, a specialized jazz-based and latin-based musical genre. Performed by Marion Aunor and musician Seed Bunye, the theme was about a further excuse of romantic affair.
  • If You Don’t Want To Fall. Singer Jed Madella had maintained a baritone-like conventional powerful singing skill for decade, with an effective natural feeling and emotion of the content of this feature song, on which its theme is about long-term modest romantic relationship.
  • Everything Takes Time. This upbeat melody performed by lyricist and interpreter Hazel de la Cruz often contains a theme about a “true love waits” basis.
  • Hanggang Kailan. Oh well, this powerful song performed by Angeline Quinto may be likely an extended theme song of hit adult drama The Legal Wife starring Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador, and Jericho Rosales aside from the main song Hangggan Kailan Kita Mamahalin. Although the song was only applied for the song festival, in which its theme is about everlasting love affair.
  • Dito. Last 2013, FM radio stations Love Radio and Yes FM in Mega Manila only aired Sana’y Magbalik as their own choice rather than to air the entire songs from Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2013. This 2014, will these two FM radio stations would attempt to air this feature song performed by Jovit Baldivino just as mentioned from the former one on previous song festival season? The theme is about wishing for a coming back a relationship when two lovers became friends from the past.
  • Umiiyak Ang Puso. The song performed by Bugoy Drillon was almost a heartbreak song about a man who grieved his guilt for breaking up his beloved woman.
  • Pare Mahal Mo Raw Ako. The last of the song I posted on my views—though less popular with a bit of twist of its theme—candidate lyricist and interpreter Michael Pangilinan performs a song narration about a man who console with his male friend who wished to come back his broken relationship with his girlfriend.

A Future Development of Open Source Content-Aware (Moving) Image Editing Software?

June 11, 2014
content aware digital video remaster

A sample digital video image dimension conversion from conventional 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio without cropping using a future open source programming of content-aware to recover a missing detail. (Video clip from Facebook page via YouTube of Be Careful With My Heart thru, used with permision.)

For the  past few years we had often enjoy to watch a conventional moving image dimension—whether on film or TV or video—with an aspect ratio of 4:3. But on today’s digital age, when 16:9 digital video image was introduced in DTV broadcasting, Internet streaming, and  digital home video system, someone had requested to remaster digitally from 4:3 image to a true content-aware 16:9 image without cropping but rather recovering a missing detail from being pillar box layout. One of the recent example of fully-licensed commercial software was Adobe Photoshop CS5, which is capable to recover a missing detail of original 4:3 still image while lying under 16:9 image master layout. However, the use of commercial software would be very expensive as well as labor cost to process for a long time to remaster the entire sample old moving image dimension. To solve this problem, my only wish is to develop an open-source software based on Linux OS and GNU technology using an affordable calculation of MPEG-based or JPEG-based image recovery value constant, relative to a conventional mathematical constant such as pi (π) equal to 3.14… Although I’m not a computer programmer, here is my own suggestion to the developer of open-source imaging software such as GIMP as well as community:

  1. Take a sample of high resolution, wider aspect ratio, digital still image from a standard high performance digital camera. Suppose, for example, a high quality 4K resolution (2160p) with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
  2. While preserving an original sample image capture, copy the image and then:
    a. Crop the original 16:9 image dimension to 4:3 image dimension. To find the width for converting  4:3 image from 16:9 image, the following equation is as follows:
    Width (in pixels) (4:3) = Length (in pixels) × (4 ÷ 3)
    b. Reduce the original high resolution image being cropped from step 2a to become a standard definition (SD) nominal image resolution, such as 480p (720 × 480) or 576p (720 × 576).
  3. Using a system based from MPEG or JPEG format, calculate to find a constant value between SD resolution and high resolution image of the same aspect ratio image dimension given in step 2b, and find a constant value between 4:3 image and 16:9 image given from step 2a. The following respective equation is as follows:
    a. Original low resolution image of the same imaging object  (Rl) ÷ Original high resolution image of the same imaging object (Rh) = True content-aware high resolution image conversion constant (Khrc) [Rl ÷ Rh = Khrc]
    b. Original 4:3 short aspect ratio image of the same imaging object (Ps)÷ Original 16:9 long aspect ratio image of the same imaging object (Pl)= True content-aware wide aspect ratio image dimension conversion constant (Kwarc) [Ps ÷ Pl = Kwarc]
  4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 to make another respective sample constant value of image aspect ratio and image resolution true content-aware conversion calculation.
  5. To test whether the use of respective conversion constant value of image resolution and image aspect ratio based from MPEG or JPEG would work as a true content-aware open source system, take a sample image being scanned in low resolution and limited aspect ratio dimension. Hence:
    a. Revealing a true content-aware high resolution image detail [Rh = Rl × Khrc (vary)]
    b. Revealing a true content-aware wide aspect ratio image dimension [Pl = Ps × Kwarc (vary)]

Whether the use of open-source based system would work as mentioned above or not in order to surpass the current commercial image editing software to function content-aware image remaster system, the most important thing is to have a thorough study to produce a new system and would take a long time to process with the cooperation of a fellow well-trained open-source software programmer. If this would be a reality, then various commercial film or TV producer would never have to worry to pay more to remaster old film or TV video content at an affordable processing cost.

A Future Multicore GPU For 4K or 8K 3D PC Gaming?

May 9, 2014

For the past few years various competing graphics processing unit (GPU) chip brand such as Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon (formerly ATI Radeon) developed a conventional single-core architecture, consisting of hundreds of millions of switching transistors capable to generate billions of resolution raster fill rate and trillions of 3D texture trigonometry fill rate per second. Although current high performance GPUs work well only on 720p, 768p, and 1080p high definition (HD) to run 3D animation gaming software content, there were uncertain whether they would support to run future 4K ultra-high definition (2160p) or 8K Super Hi-Vision (4320p) resolution 3D animation gaming software content having with high texture depth that would slow down processing time.

I ever wish for Nvidia and AMD reading on this blog to try develop a multicore—say, eight-core or sixteen core—GPU capable to run future 4K or 8K resolution 3D animation gaming software content. In the following sample illustration below, each single core of the total 8-core or 16-core GPU consists of five-in-one component such as 3D texture depth, 3D color shading, 2D vector, and raster video and still image codecs (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, HEVC, JPEG, JPEG2000, etc.) Above the 8-core or 16-core are the multi-level—say, level 5 (L5)—memory cache with a projected 8 gigabyte (GB) to 16 GB from a current 1 GB of single core GPU. Finally, to furnish a complete 4K or 8K detail, there is a special video gateway memory below the 8-core or 16-core GPU component.

A sample illustration of future development of 8-core or 16-core graphics processing unit (GPU) chip capable to run 4K or 8K resolution 3D animation gaming software.

It’s up for both Nvidia and AMD to follow this concept GPU—together with future enhanced process feature of new DirectX version—whether it is effective to load, process, and run future 4K or 8K resolution 3D animation gaming software content titles very smooth and efficient in seconds without lagging, with a projected rate of trillions of raster resolution fill rate and quadrillion (1 × 1015) 3D texture fill rate. That would work well to function only together with future 8-core or 16-core central processing unit (CPU) chip on competing brands such as Intel and AMD, which may be available for few long years before or after a full roll-out of Super Hi-Vision 8K broadcast in Japan and selected rich countries by 2020.

A Future Affordable Custom-Built DIY Blu-Ray Disc Digital Video Player For Emerging Countries?

May 2, 2014

Over the past (more than) ten years when Sony developed Blu-Ray disc digital video player unit in 2000 capable to play 720p to 1080p high definition (HD) content in MPEG-4 AVC or H.264 format or 4K ultra high definition (UHD) content in MPEG-H HEVC format, the device was slowly sold to some high-income consumers in U.S., Japan, and Europe at about hundreds of thousands of units worldwide. Developing countries like Central and South America (Mexico and Brazil), Africa, and Asia (India, Philippines, Indonesia, China, and Vietnam)—where there were independent of using a conventional DVD video player despite of limitations of the unit such as playing SD video content like 480p or 576p—were not able to buy Blu-Ray player due to big, bulky, expensive electronic components and console software resulting to high price at about U.S $ 800 comparable to desktop or laptop PCs. As affordable China-made 720p to 1080p LCD or LED TV display with sizes at 17-inch, 19-inch, and 23-inch costing at U.S $ 180 to U.S $ 220 available in hypermarkets in 2010 until present, and even home satellite DTV (DVB-S2) and digital cable TV (DVB-C) in separate or combined SD and HD format became locally available in the emerging countries, some medium-income households often wished to avail an affordable Blu-Ray video player, with the same quality and performance from the expensive ones.

In my own idea, there were an unusual concept—unminded to discover by most PC experts—to develop a custom built do-it-yourself (DIY) Blu-Ray digital video player unit similar from a current custom-built DIY PC design unit. The concept requires a single BD-ROM/R/RW disc driver; a motherboard with a combined quad-core CPU (central processing unit), high performance GPU (graphics processing unit) with built-in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and HEVC video codec, sound driver with Dolby, MP3, PCM, and AAC audio codec, and audio and video outputs; a LED panel indicator; video control buttons on unit; and a Linux OS based digital audio-video player open source software relative to VLC Media Player. (See illustration below.) Instead of steel frame to install these as mentioned, the custom-designed case should be made of heat-resistant, open vent frame, hard plastics.

Building an affordable custom-built Blu-Ray player design would be near-half the cost of custom-built DIY PC, projected at about U.S. $ 360. But if this concept to offer for medium-income households to buy would be promising or not, the only remaining problem to solve further is to give (1) a consent for the developer of consumer electronic companies like Sony that built genuine Blu-Ray video player unit for fair and balanced competition and (2) a further enhancement of developing open-source digital audio and video system based from the recent existing patents of audio and video codecs.


A Future Affordable 4K And 8K LCD Or LED DTV Widescreen Display?

April 5, 2014
4k, 8k, uhd, shv

The projected cost of future affordable 4K and 8K LCD or LED video display would be equivalent of a given number of unit of affordable 17-inch 1080p unit.

Here on most urban and suburban centers in the Philippines, various retail stores, mall-based hardware stores, and some wholesale appliance stores such as SM Hypermarket, SM Savemore, Puregold, Ace Hardware, and many others introduced an affordable, genuine China-brand-made or locally-brand-made 720p and 1080p resolution widescreen LCD or LED display priced between Php 8,000 to Php 10,000 on respective sizes 17-inch to 23-inch. Low to medium income Philippine households may be capable to buy those affordable video devices as a replacement of (a near phase-out) conventional CRT analog TV if ever they would engage to watch high definition (HD) video broadcast content in the future, whether a current digital cable TV (DVB-C), digital satellite TV (DVB-S2), or free-to-air digital terrestrial TV (ISDB-T). Of course, they would never need to worry that matter as an alternative from an expensive, large HD display of the past priced at Php 50,000 to Php 150,000 being rolled out in the Philippines in late mid-decade 2000s.

But on today’s latest technology trends, the Philippines—as well as other neighboring developing countries in Central and South America, Africa, and Asia—may not able to engage a new high resolution digital TV resolution standards, such as 4K (Ultra high definition) and 8K (Super Hi-Vision) due to highly-bidded price of LCD or LED display unit at respective Php 1 million to Php 10 million. Are there a possibility that those high resolution video units must be lower down depending on a required affordable electronic components on manufacturing process?

Suppose that to make an affordable, portable 4K LED-backlit LCD display, for example, the unit would be equivalent to an assembled four units of 17-inch 1080p display, to be priced at projectedly Php 32,000. Same with affordable 8K LED-backlit LCD display, for example again, with an equivalent to an assembled sixteen units of 17-inch 1080p display or four times that of affordable 4K display, to be priced at projectedly Php 128,000. (See illustration above.)

The manufacturer responsible to develop affordable 4K and 8K display? Only China-based electronic companies or even some locally-based electronic companies in the Philippines would attempt to do so, if and only if they would give a consent from the developer of genuine 4K and 8K video display units such as Hitachi (8K), Panasonic (4K), Sony (4K), JVC (4K), etc., regarding patent rights and fair trade issue.

Future 4K And 8K Broadcast In The Philippines?

Another concern for most local TV networks in the Philippines are the possibility of broadcasting 4K or 8K digital video content, which are very expensive to operate to shoot, record, and stream compared to an affordable SD digital video content and even a gradual expense HD digital video content. To solve this problem, I suggest, every TV network must try to quit to operate a full power analog TV transmission (such as 50 kilowatts and 60 kilowatts) and fully shift to a low-power DTTV transmitter (such as 100 watts, 250 watts, and 1 kilowatts) in order to save money from high-cost electricity bills. Then the network is up to decide whether they would either remain digital SD or shift to HD, 4K, or 8K depending on desired budget to operate… The projected operation cost of streaming HD, 4K, or 8K broadcast with low-power DTTV transmitter is less than, gradually greater than, or equal to the current operation cost of analog or digital SD broadcast with full-power analog TV transmitter. (See illustration below.)

No More Negra Skin But Wooden Skin On “Mirabella”

March 24, 2014
julia barreto mirabella abs cbn

Julia Barreto playing the role of a teenage girl being covered with a wooden skin stigmatized from magical tree. (Images posted from blog site via, used with permission.)

In real life, every white people should respect every black people, and even a normal physical races should also respect an ethnical physical races. This sensitive issue about racial discrimination being alarmed by international diplomat government body United Nations (UN) as a form of criminal liability should be considered to educate or inform to ordinary people, for avoiding any form of racial abuse not only verbal but also visual, either on indoor or outdoor places or graphical image on TV, movie, print, or Internet. Not only worldwide but also here in the Philippines.

This was the case of an upcoming TV fantasy-drama on ABS-CBN about a teenage girl who was stigmatized from a mysterious magical tree forming a wooden skin on her entire body since birth, played in a role by a “fourth” generation of Barreto sisters named Julia Barreto in Philippine entertainment industry currently in sibling rivalry: the third was Claudine, the second was Marjorie (mother of Julia and wife of Dennis Padilla), and the main veteran ones was Gretchen. Yes, I mentioned her “J” name a teener age, just as you watched on her current TV ad endorser such as Palmolive, Cherifer, Pond’s, Jollibee, and Modess.

Mirabella was based from the recently shelved classic Philippine movie adaptation to TV Cofradia when a fellow (young) Netizens who were a friends, relatives, or fans of Julia Barreto suggested to ABS-CBN to change the TV show concept, due to a fact that a reliable research found that the main lady role of the classic movie was a brown-colored skin or negra. The TV project was (more than) one years in the making since 2013, and the show was started in March 23, 2014, a slightly long delay due to a busy vacant TV timeslot of various ABS-CBN TV shows, including a one-year run 6 p.m. slot TV drama Annaliza to finish it.

In order to impress the televiewers without having to distract to watch on a possible racial discrimination, the role of Julia Barreto as “Mira”, who was 16 years old during a digital movie scene shooting in 2013, use only a brown-colored lines resembling a “wooden ring of tree cut” over her skin by means of either a thorough make-up or video graphical representation. That concept is much better than using a conventional painting of brown-colored make-up on her entire skin and face that can easily cause a negative reception to both the televiewers and even Philippine entertainment critic to complain as a typical racist TV show status, unlike a previous “negra-serye” on TV Nita Negrita and Luna Blanca on GMA-7.

My Wish For Future Julia Barreto Movie Project(?)

Aside from Mirabella, I wish that ABS-CBN Star Cinema should try to adapt a Philippine pop online novel (as popularized from Wattpad) The Filthy, Rich Bitch for Julia Barreto as a potential possible role in film movie scene shoot in the future. I was often curious to look and observe a graphical drawing of a young lady wearing a light green-yellow gown on a front cover pocket book of the novel as mentioned, which is distributed and published by Summit Media and is now available on National Bookstore and 7-Eleven branches released in early 2014, aside from She’s Dating The Gangster and Diary ng Panget currently adapted in movie version in 2014 season.
