TOP 10 FINALISTS OF PHILPOP 2018 REVEALED


Every year I’m looking forward this annual music competition that has produced some of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed recording of the last five years which serving as breeding ground to artists who aren’t afraid to challenge songwriting tropes and reflect their truth.

PhilPop continues to provide a sustainable platform for amateur and professional composers to showcase exceptional songs from various genres and styles. This year PhilPop opened its doors to entries written in different languages, spanning across regions and cities ouside of Metro Manila.

Festival curator Mr. Moi Ortiz also awarded PhilPop Foundation headed by PhilPop Board Member and 2018 Festival Chairman Mr. Ryan Cayabyab, PhilPop Vice President Patrick C. Gregorio, and PhilPop Executive Director Dinah Remolacio a Certificate of Appreciation for continuously pushing the boundaries of Filipino music through regional inclusivity and for giving voice to homegrown talents who have the potential to make it big in the local music industry.

From the carefully handpicked roster of Top 30 semi-finalists, PhilPop has narrowed the selection to top 10. The finalists are judged according to the following criteria: 50% judges choice, 25% online streaming, and 25% Smart's People Choice through SMS and Twitter's conversational ad.

Here are the top 10 finalists with no particular order:


1) "Ako Ako," composed by Jeriko Buenafe and interpreted by Feel Day feat, Hans Dimayuga

This year's finalists offer a diverse crop of entries that represent different musical styles, ranging from contemporary hit music to folk, latin-flavored pop to R&B/soul, rock to easy listening music. Instead of focusing on personalities, the latest edition banks on envelope-pushing compositions that have the potential to penetrate the local music market and create a lasting impression to the Filipino audience.

Let Your Child’s Imagination Run Free for the Holloween Outfit


Halloween is a celebration observed mostly every countries on the eve of October 31 and is fast approaching now. Just like me I was able to experienced the halloween party in Japan. Everyone here wearing  different costumes like zombies or different scary costumes everywhere even their riding in trains or walking around. So you know what this means—it’s once again the season that you and your kids get a legit excuse to dress up as imaginatively as they want. Whether it’s the annual village trick-or-treating, or an all-out Halloween party at school, you and your little ones should not miss the chance to unleash all that creativity during this much-anticipated time of the year.

Let your creative juices run wild, think out-of-the-box, and be crafty as you can be! To help you out,  here are some fun and easy ideas that can be built on top of your kids regular OOTD’s for flexibility. Of course, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without their favorite pair of Skechers shoes: Skechers Lights, Skechers Twinkle Toes, and Skechers Sport!

THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME SUGGESTED OUTFITS FOR YOUR KIDS THIS HOLLOWEEN:

1) Pirate
The pirate costume is probably the easiest Halloween get-up you can do. Perfect for last-minute invites! All you have to do is prepare any (or all) of the following: a striped shirt, khaki bottoms, an eye patch, a pirate hat, a toy telescope, or even a cardboard ship. Just teach your kids your best pirate speak “yar-har-har” and they’re good to go! Of course, the ship may be a little slippery, so pair the costume with their trusty Skechers shoes with super comfy memory foam!

2) Cutie Cat 
There is something about little girls and kittens that just go together! Have your daughter choose her favorite dress, and spice it up with cat accents such as a cute and trendy cat headband and a furry tail. Her feline friend will sure be purr-oud upon seeing her hooman like that. Don’t forget to pamper those paws, err, feet by wearing her favorite comfy Skechers pair! The colorful shades and accents will also add to her already purr-fect outfit.
