Last Saturday, I was invited to a set visit to one of primetime’s high rated TV Show “Princess and I” which stars Gretchen Barretto, Albert Martinez, Kathryn Bernardo, Enrique Gil, Daniel Padilla and Khalil Ramos. The shoot is located in Marikina.
Here’s a quick look of the set location:
Princess and I is a modern fairy tale drama story which premiered last April 16 on primetime TV. It tells about the story of Mikay (Kathryn) a princess who was taken from her true Family in a far away country. Growing up in a poor family in the Philippines, Mikay embarks on a journey to find out her true identity and true love.
Had a chance to get to know a little about the young casts of the show during the shoot.
Check out some of the pics I’ve taken of the casts during the set visit:
ENRIQUE GIL and KHALIL RAMOS
This is definitely more than just sheer luck. The same time last year, Sam Pinto has set a new perspective for sexiness as she won the title of the FHM Sexiest Woman in the World 2011. As most people have already expected on this year’s poll, Sam joins the ranks of Katrina Halili and Angel Locsin as one of the prestigious celebrities to win the coveted title twice.
In the partial and unofficial results released last May, Angel Locsin led the poll for two straight weeks as Sam found herself in second place. But at the tail-end of the poll, Sam rose to the top spot as Angel dropped to second place. Solenn Heussaff, Cristine Reyes and Marian landed third, fourth, and fifth spots, respectively. Completing the Top 10 are January 2012 cover girl, Ellen Adarna; current cover girl Jackie Rice; March 2012 cover girl, Bela Padilla; and Kapuso stars, Jennylyn Mercado and Lovi Poe.
The numbers were nothing short of staggering at the end of the campaign. Over 17 million votes, consisting of online, text and print ballots, were generated in this year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll. This year, it was indeed a battle between the Kapamilya star Angel Locsin and the reigning Sexiest Woman Sam Pinto, as Angel garnered a total of 1,131,505 votes against Sam’s 1,249,189 votes.
The complete Top 10 roster of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World is as follows:
- Sam Pinto
- Angel Locsin
- Solenn Heussaff
- Cristine Reyes
- Marian Rivera
- Ellen Adarna
- Jackie Rice
- Bela Padilla
- Jennylyn Mercado
- Lovi Poe

It has been two years since her debut on the cover of FHM Philippines. Now, Jackie Rice is back and she wants to emerge with a sexier, more mature, image.
Last July 28 (Thursday), I was able to talk to the now 99 pounds slimmer former Starstruck Survivor during a pocket interview for the July 2012 Issue of FHM Magazine.
Jackie now flaunts even sexier curves she achieved from intense daily boxing work out and no-carb diet which began during the summer special of Bubble Gang. She also reveals why she still needs to stay thinner for her upcoming teleserye.
The former Starstruck Survivor is also taking her acting career to greater heights—taking on more mature and challenging roles.
“Gusto kong i-try kung hanggang saan yung kaya ko in terms of acting. Mas maganda kung iba-iba rin yung nakikita ng tao…Dati kasi taga-isla ako sa Sisid, island girl na pearl diver. Ngayon architect ako dito, so medyo motherly,” she says.
Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka .. Jackie Rice
Jackie Rice welcomes more mature roles and feels challenged in taking them. She said that she finds her role in Kasalanan Bang Ibiging Ka, extremely challenging. It was very different from all the other roles that she has portrayed in the past. Michal De Mesa has been very helpful and supportive in preparing for her roles in the afternoon soap. She also said that she feels very much honored working with such great actors like Michael De Mesa, Geoff Eigenman and Angelika Dela Cruz.
Jackie Rice on her slim figure
Jackie Rice is now only 99 pounds. In TV, that is equivalent to 109 lbs because people look approximately 10 lbs bigger on TV. She said that her slim figure right now has nothing to do with FHM nor is she suffering from any kind of illness. ”I am not anorexic” – Jackie Rice reiterates. She just doesn’t want to look fat.
Weight Loss Diet Tips from Jackie Rice:
Jackie rice did boxing as a weight loss activity and stayed away from rice for a month.
The month after that she resorted to an after six diet that she maintains up to this date. She eats breakfast and lunch with rice and her last meal would be at 5pm (usually bread) and then take lots and lots of water. She’s very thankful that even if her weight dropped to a 99, her body did not suffer from it. She’s still at the peak of health even without using any kind of diet supplements.
You can check her new slimmer figure in the July issue of FHM.
Jackie’s catapult to the top of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, where she lands on 7th spot, serves as a promising sign that this woman’s career is all-set to reach its peak. She was at the 9th place last year.

Black Canyon Coffee is located at the Food Street of the newly re-designed SM South Mall along the busy Alabang-Zapote Road of Las Pinas. It was a Sunday, so I didn’t have any trouble going to the place. If this was a weekday, instead of the 45 minute travel time I spent going to the place, I would’ve been stuck in traffic for almost two hours.
But whatever the case, my food experience at Black Canyon Coffee would make any kind of trouble disappear.
Black Canyon Coffee (BCC) is one of the most successful and well-known Thai coffee restaurant. Moving away from the typical structure of coffee shops today, Black Canyon Coffee has made its name from its concept of being a full-service casual dining coffee place that serves not only a wide range of specialty coffee drinks and beverages, but also a complete range of delicious and healthy Thai & International food items. Your eyes will be in for a treat as you browse through the array of dishes that Black Canyon Coffee has to offer and your taste buds will most definitely not be disappointed.
Here’s a visual tour of BCC’s menu:
What have you noticed about the menu? – mouthwatering and very affordable, right? Well, I dare you to experience BCC for yourself because once you’ve tasted their dishes, the price tags on the menu won’t matter. You are defnitely getting so much value for your money. Here are the dishes that I’ve tasted last Sunday:
Black canyon Coffee is really more than your ordinary coffee shop it is also a gateway to all the wonderful international dishes that are really true to the taste of authentic Thai cuisine.
Indulge in any of Black Canyon Coffee’s 24 specialty coffee drinks and 40 special beverages, especially their “Black Canyon Iced Coffee” – a special blend of pure Arabica coffee with two kinds of milk and plenty of ice.
Black Canyon Coffee has over 220 branches in Thailand alone, not to mention their other branches on various locations in Asia.
I will definitely go back and bring the whole family here to BCC SM Southmall.
