To come up with the best photo, find the right angle and lighting for the subject before clicking away. It’s the same rule when upping style points for indoor and outdoor spaces: find the right lighting fixture and place strategically for that balance of illumination and ambience.    “Modern Living TV” knows this well and they prove it in their May 23 episode that is all about homelighting makeover. The show visits one of the biggest decorative lighting manufacturers in the country, Absolute Spaces, during which Architect Jinky Mendoza shines a light on the role and importance of lighting in turning drab to fab.

Photo c/o As you browse through my posts in my Instagram and other social media accounts, you’ll mostly see "selfies" with the different celebrities I interact with. Then I realized, I haven’t had one with a politician. If ever there’ll be one, I want it to be with former Senator Ping Lacson. Isn’t it a delight to see that a “tough” man like him having a selfie with an entertainment blogger? Sounds interesting, right?   It seems that showbiz and politics become inseparable these days and such happens with former Senator Ping Lacson whose life have been featured in movies like the “P ing Lacson: Supercop (2000) starred by the late Rudy Fernandez, and 10,000 Hours (2013) that’s a fictionalized account of his journey when he slips out of the country after revealing details on a corruption scam as starred by Robin Padilla.

'Pitch Perfect 2' Review

The Barden Bellas is back with "Pitch Perfect 2" The movie starts with the group performing in front of the US President at Lincoln Center but an unfortunate event happen when Fat Amy accidentally revealed her genitals during the performance. The group was then banned to perform from competing in any a cappella event in the USA and they find the world competition in Copenhagen as their way to redeem their group from the embarrassment. The feels you get from the first installment is something that you will get still. It succeeded in making the audience laugh and jam with the songs featured in the movie. I found it appealing that the jokes were not just focused on Rebel Wilson's character as Fat Amy but the other girls had their share of the pie including the punch lines coming from film's director Elizabeth Banks (her directorial debut) who's also part of the film. "Pitch Perfect 2" audience who loves a shoestring of jokes and musical mash-ups will have
