Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton's honeymoon details have been "slightly" revealed.

According to the website, Kate and William's first night as a couple was at the Buckingham Palace and they only left Saturday morning.

And the couple opted not to leave the United Kingdom for their honeymoon. However, it wasn't disclosed where in the UK Prince William and Kate are spending their private weekend now.

The official statement said that Prince William will immediately go back to work as a Search and Rescue pilot on Monday.

But as expected, Kate and William are not gonna tell the world exactly where they're going to spend their royal honeymoon.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to depart for a honeymoon immediately. Instead, after spending the weekend privately in the United Kingdom, The Duke will return to work as a Search and Rescue pilot next week.
The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance.
The Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon."

Marian Rivera now leading in FHM "100 Sexiest Women 2011" Poll

Marian Rivera is now the one leading on FHM Philippines' 100 Sexiest Women 2011 Poll.

Based on the partial results as of April 29, 2011, Marian is now on top spot, from #3 in the previous update (April 19).

Angel Locsin who's previously on top and last year's FHM Sexiest winner drops to 2nd.

There was a mistake in the update above from FHM Philippines. Marian Rivera was listed twice, #1 and #3. But I think, the 3rd spot belongs to Cristine Reyes.

AJ Perez and MMK, trending topics on Twitter

AJ Perez' MMK episode entitled "Tsinelas", his last MMK appearance, was certainly among the most-watched episodes of the Philippines' longest-running drama anthology program.

No rating figures yet, but the fact that AJ Perez and MMK were among the Top 10 trending topics on Twitter during its airing, not only in the Philippines but also worldwide, was enough proof that many people tuned in to watch AJ's last acting portrayal.

The hashtag #ajperezmmk was the first to trend at 8PM, and then "MMK" followed an hour later.

#ajperezmmk was the #1 trending topic in the Philippines (Yeah, it was #1. Ignore that promoted #NFLDraft term) and then the phrase "Watching MMK" also made it as a trending topic peaking at #6.

In the worldwide trends, #ajperezmmk peaked at #2 and then MMK ranked 8th.

#ajperezmmk was able to trend worldwide for 2 hours.

It's been a long time since a term or terms related to MMK trended worldwide on Twitter. I think the last time was during Coco Martin's MMK appearance in November6, 2010. Coco Martin, who played a star witness with a mental disability in that episode, was among Twitter's trending topics during that time.

AJ Perez' younger brother Gello was actively posting on Twitter via (@gelloperez) before and during the airing of AJ's MMK episode.

Before it aired, he tweeted: "Let's make my brother's mmk high rated! STAY TUNED! =)))"

And the moment #ajperezmmk made it as among the top trending topics, he immediately thanked the fans on behalf of the Perez family. "Thank you guys so much for making #ajperezmmk one of the popular topics in twitter!!!! The Perez family is sooo thankful! =)"

He later posted how proud he was for his Kuya. "So proud of my brother @ajperez17! He is such a great actor! #ajperezmmk."

Just like Gello, AJ Perez' girlfriend Steph Ayson also making tweets about AJ and his MMK episode:

@stephayson: "In the process of making MMK, AJ made me promise him I'd watch. He was so proud of his last work. I'm keeping my promise. #AJPEREZMMK"

@stephayson: "So proud of you. @ajperez17 #ajperezmmk"

@stephayson: "You're still very much alive to me. I hope you can feel how proud I am of you up there in heaven. @ajperez17 #ajperezmmk"

And then she later tweeted a photo of her and friend Raymond Canteras, who's also AJ's friend, classmate and basketball teammate at La Salle Green Hills. According to Steph, it was Raymond who introduced her to AJ.

@stephayson: The famous "common friend" who introduced me to AJ. Meet @raymondcanteras!!

Kate Middleton's first royal job? Kate kneels down before Prince William

Kate Middleton was caught on cam in an awkward moment at her royal wedding with Prince William yesterday, April 29.

A picture, which shows Kate Middleton kneeling down before Prince William at the Buckingham Palace balcony, has started to circulate on social networking sites hours after the wedding and even inspired a fan page which now has thousands of fans.

I'm not sure where it originally came from, but I saw it being tweeted by @josepvinaixa and has been retweeted many times on Twitter.

People say, it's Kate Middleton's first royal "job" or duty as Duchess of Cambridge haha.

Is the picture fake or not? Maybe it was a slightly photoshopped one 'coz I found a photo from Twitpic, where it has two kids instead of one and unlike in the above photo, Kate's head there is a bit far from Prince William.

But, did it really happen that Kate Middleton knelt down before Prince William?

Yes, it really happened. Here's a screenshot from the royal wedding livestream from Youtube and you can see there that Prince William even held Kate's head as she knelt down in front of him, probably to pick up something:

Here's a video from that royal balcony scene, the kneeling down part can be seen at 5:40 portion of the video:

May 2 holiday? No. June 13? No. June 20? Yes!

Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda has cleared on Twitter that May 2 is a regular working day and not a regular non-working holiday.

May 2 is the day after the Labor Day, May 1, which falls on a Sunday and many assumed that the holiday will be moved to the nearest Monday, May 2.

But Lacierda posted his Twitter page (@dawende) that it's not a holiday.

<>/p>Meanwhile, in June, another holiday falls on a Sunday: June 12 (Independence Day).

And the holiday will stay on a Sunday and is most likely not to be moved on a Monday.

Here's the inconsistency.

Philippine national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal's birth anniversary is coming this June 19, which also happens to be a Sunday, and the Malacanang Palace has declared June 20 (Monday) instead as a special non-working holiday.

Well, it's because Rizal's birth anniversary this year is extra special as it will be his "Sesquicentennial" birthday celebration.

Proclamation No. 154


WHEREAS, Sunday, June 19, 2011, marks the 150th birth anniversary of Dr. Jose P. Rizal, our national hero;

WHEREAS, to give all Filipinos the opportunity to commemorate Rizal’s patriotic deeds and sacrifices for the country, rekindle their admiration and respect for him, and to celebrate this milestone with appropriate ceremonies, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) requested that Monday, June 20, 2011, be declared as special non-working holiday instead of June 19, 2011, which falls on a Sunday.

Shalani Soledad: Preview Magazine May 2011 cover

Willie Revillame's "Willing Willie" co-host Shalani Soledad graces the cover of Preview Magazine this May 2011.

And guess who styled Shalani in her first ever Preview cover?It's no less than her ex's "ex" Liz Uy.

If you notice, there's an emphasis on the cover that Shalani Soledad was styled by Liz Uy, probably to imply that they were the ladies in President Noynoy Aquino's romantic past.

PNoy definitely SHOULD buy many copies of Preview Magazine's "Shalani Soledad styled by Liz Uy" issue.

American Idol Season 10: Ranking the Top 5 finalists

American Idol Season 10 is now down to its Top 5 finalists after judges' favorite Casey Abrams was eliminated last Thursday.

With Abrams elimination, judges' decision to use their one-time "save" vote for Abrams during the Top 11 eliminations has been put to waste.

But at least, he was able to reach this far.

Casey Abrams was among those finalists this season who gave consistently good performances.

On Mykiru's weekly ranking, he was ranked #1 twice, but that was during the first weeks.

Recently he has been losing momentum and his elimination was actually not as surprising as Pia Toscano's elimination, but he was still among the best and 1 or 2 of the Top 5 remaining finalists should have been eliminated ahead of him.

Here's Mykiru's updated ranking for the remaining Top 5 finalists of American Idol Season 10 (James Durbin still the top choice, Haley Reinhart goin' up!)

1. James Durbin (Previous ranks: #7, #5, #2, #1)

2. Scotty McCreery (Previous ranks: #4, #3, #7, #4)

3. Haley Reinhart (Previous ranks: #11, #8, #11, #6)

4. Lauren Alaina (Previous ranks: #3, #2, #8, #3)

5. Jacob Lusk (Previous ranks: #6, #7, #6, #7)

The Philippine staging of "Peter Pan" will serve as Sam Concepcion's big comeback in the musical theater after headlining the successful run of High School Musical, where he played the lead role of Troy Bolton, in 2007.

Scarlett Johansson let her hair down on the 2011 Academy Award red carpet, like, literally! Rather than a typical updo, she chose to wear her locks free and loose.

The sultry actress wore a daring backless dress with a sexy lace front and floral accents. She posed on the red carpet with fellow actor Jeremy Renner, and the two will also be paired in the upcoming movie The Avengers. They seem to be quite cozy off the set!

Erich Gonzales - Enchong Dee, Kim Chiu - Gerald Anderson at Star Magic US Tour 2011

The loveteams of Erich Gonzales - Enchong Dee and Kim Chiu - Gerald Anderson performed together at the recent Star Magic Tour in the US.

And both loveteams did the "nose-to-nose" thing, which made the crowd screamed so loud. Can't blame the audience. It was really "kiligness" to the highest level.

Watch video:

More videos from the Star Magic US Tour 2011:

This one's so cute (and hot) featuring Kapamilya leading men Sam Milby, Gerald Anderson, Enchong Dee, Rafael Rosell and Zanjoe Marudo in New York City.

"Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan" music video released!

The official music video of "Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan" is now out and has been uploaded already on Youtube yesterday by Star Records.

"Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan" is the beautiful theme song of ABS-CBN's "Green Rose" composed and performed by its lead star Jericho Rosales.

And joining Jericho in the music video is no less than his "Green Rose" leading lady Anne Curtis.

Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan by Jericho Rosales

Watch the official music video of "Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan":

I super love this song.

"Bumuhos Man Ang Ulan" solidifies Jericho Rosales' status as an OPM hitmaker, as the song charted #1 in radio music countdowns. I think it's only with this song that people started describing Echo, no longer just an "actor", but as the "singer-actor".

You can vote for this song on MYX so it will be included in its music countdown. Just text, MYX VOTE [title of the song] and send it to 2366.

Friendster shutting down May 31? Export your Friendster Profile now!

Is Friendster shutting down?

Friendster, where most of us got hooked with before Facebook, will shut down by May 31.Friendster will undergo a major reformat!

The site will not actually shut down, but Friendster will shut down only as a social networking site, and will upgrade itself as a social entertainment site, which will focus more on fun games.

That's the best thing to do, especially that most of its registered users are no longer active and much more active in Facebook, a social networking site which was launched 2 years later than Friendster and is now the 2nd most visited site in the world.

Mykiru Isyusero also has a Friendster account, but the last time I updated it was more than 2 years ago, because I've been devoting more time on Facebook.

Most Filipinos actually are already members of Facebook, since it's the most-visited site in our country. According to Alexa Ranking, the Top 5 sites in the Philippines are: 1. Facebook 2. Yahoo! 3. 4. 5. Youtube.

Friendster may not be ranking so high in the country (ranked 15th), but it still gets most visits from Filipino users. The Top 3 Friendster users are Indonesia and India and the Philippines.

Friendster's upgrading will bring out some changes, such as, deletion of your uploaded photos, your blogs, messages in your inbox, your friends' testimonials ("testi" for short) and shoutouts.

But they created an Exporter application in the site to back-up or transfer your Friendster files.

They promised though to keep your added friends and basic profile info.

An e-mail has already been sent out to all of its users, informing them of the upcoming changes on Friendster.

Here's the letter I received last Saturday, April 23:

Dear Mykiru,

We are introducing a new and improved Friendster site in the coming weeks. As part of this change, we will remove a number of social networking functions in Friendster. This includes your existing account profile, photos, messages, blogs, and shoutouts. However, your list of friends will be preserved, along with your basic profile information.

We understand that your photos, blogs and other private data may be important to you. An application is available in the "Apps" section of the site, until May 31st 2011, to help you download or export them securely to third party sites, such as Flickr or Multiply. The application is available here.

If you do not wish to keep any of these information, you do not need to do anything. Your Friendster account will not be deleted. Your Friendster Wallet, along with the coins and chips in it, will remain unchanged in the new site as long as you use your existing login details.

For more information on the Exporter app, please visit the Friendster Help page.

Thank you for using Friendster, we look forward taking you to a brand new Friendster experience very soon!

Export Your Profile Now

The Friendster Team

The Friendster Export application will let you do these things: Download your profile and export your photos.

The profile info which will be downloaded includes your basic info (name, date of birth, gender, and 'About Me' info), photos, list of your friends or fans (for Fan Profiles), list of pages that you are 'a fan of', comments and testimonials, messages in your Inbox, shoutout history and comments to your shoutouts, virtual gifts, treasure chest and list of groups you are a member of.

While your photos will be exported either to Flickr, Photobucket or Multiply depending on your choice. All your albums, both public and private, can be exported.

AJ Perez' Maalala Mo Kaya (MMK) episode, to break rating records

AJ Perez will touch our hearts this Saturday, April 30, with his Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) episode, which is already his last acting portrayal and TV appearance, after he died in a car accident April 17.

And according to the MMK episode director Dado Lumibao, it's definitely AJ Perez' greatest performance as an actor.

The teaser for MMK's April 30 episode featuring AJ Perez and Bugoy Carino has been shown many times already and I really have goosebumps everytime it's being shown. It's already making me cry.


It's only a teaser, but you can already say that AJ did an amazing job there as an actor. And truly, he will make us cry with his last MMK episode, so be prepared for that.

A lot of people are already anticipating AJ's MMK appearance. And it's already being expected to rate so high in the ratings. With our help, AJ Perez' MMK episode could be the highest-rating episode of MMK this 2011.

15. Feb. 12 "Kwintas" feat. Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo 19.5%
16. Jan. 1 "Ice Cream" feat. Baron Geisler and Jewel Mische 18.9

Let's all hope that after April 30, AJ Perez' MMK episode will be the one ranking on top there.

Gigger Boys minus AJ Perez: What's next for them?

The Gigger Boys were rarely seen together, with all its members complete on TV and in mall shows, even before AJ Perez' death because of their conflicting schedules and no enough time to rehearse together.

That explains why AJ Perez had 2 out-of-town shows away from the Gigger Boys before he died because some other members were busy with other commitments.

And the last time the Gigger Boys were almost complete (including two of its original members, Dino Imperial and Chris Gutierrez) was during Empress Schuck's 18th birthday celebration on ASAP Rocks last February 20. was able to take a video of the Gigger Boys that day while they were inside the dressing room, in their playful and happy mood:

And now that AJ is gone, the Gigger Boys will never be complete. As what other people are saying, the Gigger Boys won't be the same without AJ Perez.

Is it over for the Gigger Boys? Or they should continue the group for the love of AJ?
