Sam & Jennylyn spread Love & Romance in "The PreNup",on October 14

Get ready for the Ultimate Romantic-Kilig Movie of the Year, "The PreNup" starring Jennylyn Mercado and Sam Milby together for the first time on the big screen.

The tandem strikes an undeniable screen chemistry at once made even more noticeable by their natural knack for comedy in scene shot in Central Park and other scenic spots in New York city.

In the film,  both Sam and Jennylyn set out for NYC on the same plane. Sam plays a guy whose dream is to become a professional photographer while Jennylyn is a girl whose goal is to meet her long-lost father. When Jennylyn fails to see her dad, she meets Sam who later serves as her Knight in Shining Armor in the Big City. They eventually fall in love and decide to marry. The wedding preparations, however, suffer a glitch when back in Manila, Sam's parents demand that the couple sign a pre-nuptial agreement.

And so, the movie will touch on the social issue of a pre-nup agreement as well as its advantages and disadvantages.

Aside from the fresh team-up of San and Jen and the social relevance The PreNup carries, award-winning  ( Internationally and locally) director Jun Lana's meticulous direction is also a plus factor for the film.

The PreNup also starred by Dominic Ochoa and Ella Cruz. So, brace yourself for an exhilirating and exciting romantic ride as The PreNup spreads love, joy, and good vibes. Fall in love with Wendy and Sean in cinemas on October 14, 2015.

Hapi Diamond Jubilee Anniversary, Quezon City!

October, 2015 marks the 75th Anniversary of Quezon City. In celebration of its Diamond Jubilee Anniversary, there will be line ups of different activities for the month of October.  

Let me share first the trivia about Quezon city via Wikipedia. Quezon City is the most populous city in the Philippines. It is one of the cities that make up Metro Manila, the National Capital Region of the Philippines. Quezon City was named after Manuel L. Quezon, second President of the Philippines, who founded the city and developed it to replace the City of Manila as the national capital for 28 years from 1948 to 1976. Quezon City is not located in and should not be confused with Quezon Province, which was also named after the president. It is the largest city in Metro Manila in terms of land area and most populated local government unit in the country.

We had the chance to tour around the house of late Manuel L. Quezon located at Quezon City Memorial Circle. This is the exact replica of the Manuel Quezon's House at Gilmore Avenue, QC. Here's the clip video of out tour.
