GMA 7's Jackie Rice is Maxim Philippines July Covergirl

Thursday, June 25, 2009

July 2009 marks the spectacular third anniversary of MAXIM Philippines and, in this special issue, we give readers what they’ve long been clamouring for: the sexy sweetheart Jackie Rice on the cover!

It’s been four years since the public first took notice of Jackie Rice when she emerged as the ultimate female survivor in the talent show Starstruck, and, this year, the 19-year old hits her stride. Already busy with her second soap of 2009 Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Lahat Sa Akin, Jackie is marking her transition from ingĂ©nue to serious star with this stunning pictorial. It’s well worth the wait.

The July 2009 issue also pays tribute to one of MAXIM’s favourite topics: SEX. The magazine is cocked and loaded with many fascinating features that delve into the various aspects of the theme. The illicit and underground world of Personal Service Providers is explored and brought to light, as are the secret techniques and strategies employed by Pick Up Artists. Native Angeles resident and stand-up funnyman Tim Tayag takes readers on a pictorial trip to his city’s infamous red-light district Fields Avenue.

Erotic film buffs rejoice. This issue takes a closer look at some classics in the genre, from actual sex in mainstream movies to Elwood Perez’ controversial 1985 film Silip starring Sarsi Emanuelle and Maria Isabel Lopez. Actor Dick Israel, the iconic rapist kontrabida in many a Pinoy film, is this month’s MAXIM ICON.

What would MAXIM be without its girls? This month features Kaylani Lei, the half-Filipina sexpot who’s made it big in international porno, Fil-Chinese looker Melissa Chua, Katrina Hermosilla and the Russian pole dancers of Club Divino.

MAXIM July also takes you on an environmentally responsible ride with the newly launched 2010 Toyota Prius, puts you in the ring with the new UFC champ Lyoto Machida, and shows you what to wear when you want to look like Will Devaughn.

Let Your Ears Decide: The Philips GoGear MP3 Player is a tough choice to beat

You can tell when people are really into music by the way they listen. You’ve probably seen them on the train, in the park, or seated in coffee houses—people who’ve been transported, oblivious to the world around them save for the sounds only they can hear. They sit with their eyes closed, headphones to their ears, their heads nodding in a steady rhythm, lips softly mouthing the lyrics to the songs playing on their music players. In those moments, there’s only you, your music player, and a song.

The new line of GoGear media players are made for those kinds of moments. If you are any kind of music fan, you will know the importance of having a portable MP3 player to keep you company as you move through the day. And if you do have one, the question remains— ‘does the quality of your favorite music go with you, or is the full sound experience left at home?’
Letting your ears decide

Other MP3 players were created with a promise of superior sound quality in the palm of your hands. That’s great and all, but how many of them actually go beyond these proclamations and back it up with something that not only lives up to expectations, but exceeds it further than you can imagine?

The Philips Go Gear with FullSound was created with exactly that in mind. It’s not so much as making promises but actually delivering on it. That’s precisely what the Philips GoGear does. It delivers.

Its sleek and stylish interface makes it a fashion accessory in itself. But most importantly, it’s got all the features you’ll ever want from a portable MP3 player. The GoGear offers an intuitive user interface for fast and easy navigation, which you can also customize. As you discover new favorites and get bored of old ones, you can easily browse your music library and still control your music playback, thereby making every listening moment a new experience.
What’s more, the new GoGear combines Philips' renowned expertise in music reproduction with the power of new generation technology. The new FullSound technology restores the sonic details that

music compression loses. It enriches the music signal, so what you hear is the full sound— with every nuance of emotion and every detail of musical genius put back where it belongs.
If you’re still clamoring for more, then here’s an extra treat. The Philips GoGear MP3 Player also comes with its own specialized earphones, specifically made to complement the experience of the FullSound technology. These earphones are tailor-made to follow the curvature of the human ear and it’s ergonomically suited to drown out every sound that isn’t coming from the MP3 player.

The best part of having a Philips GoGear MP3 Player is the freedom it gives you. Whether you’re in a coffeeshop or backpacking across Western Europe, the only form of company you’ll ever need is the Philips GoGear MP3 Player.

In this day and age of technological one-upmanship, there have been a lot of MP3 players that have promised the world to its consumers but have failed to deliver. For Philips, promising is out of the question. As a matter of fact, it sticks by the motto of ‘letting your ears decide’.
And once you do let your ears decide, you’ll surely become that guy in the coffee shop lost in the GoGear experience, and the rest of the world will become the guy at the other table wishing they had one for themselves.

Get On the Road with Gwyneth Paltrow and the Asian Food Channel!

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Exclusive Asian Television Premiere of Star Studded Food and Travel Series Only on AFC

Manila - What happens when a dream team of four gets together for a road trip across Spain? The results are nothing short of spectacular when it’s Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow, acclaimed chef Mario Batali, New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols driving across the country. ‘Spain… On the Road Again’, a visually stunning 13-part food and travel series is a rollicking ride as the foursome eat, drink and cook through 30 Spanish cities. This brand new television series airs for the first time in Asia, exclusively on the Asian Food Channel (AFC) every Tuesday at 9 PM.

Said Maria Brown, Managing Director, Acquisitions & Programming, AFC: ‘We have been monitoring this series since it was an idea on paper and we are extremely proud to have secured ‘Spain…On the Road Again’ exclusively for Asia. With a winning formula of celebrity chefs and internationally acclaimed food writers set against the stunning backdrop of Spain, we knew it would be a visual feast for AFC viewers.’
From Andalucia to Zaragoza, the exploits of the star-studded cast will thrill armchair travelers and avid foodies alike. The food-and-wine obsessed men are on a constant lookout for their next great meal and often cede to the foodie women’s agenda to indulge in Spain’s other cultural pleasures from its museums, shopping and music to its spas and nightlife. What ensues is an unscripted culinary adventure complete with all the playful dynamics of male-female compatibility.

The cast of characters at the table each has a personal connection to the country. Pals Paltrow and Batali had spent part of their younger years in Spain, where they both fell in love with the place and learned, in Batali’s words, ‘how to eat and drink’ there. Bittman, who also stars in another show on AFC, ‘Best Recipes in the World’, draws on his gastronomic expertise and his previous excursions to Spain to enrich everyone’s ‘foodie’ knowledge. And, Spanish native Claudia Bassols rounds up the team and does her best to keep the three Americans in check throughout the trip through her homeland.

Cameo appearances by celebrated architect of the Guggenheim Bilbao, Frank Gehry and lead vocalist of rock band, R.E.M, Michael Stipe spice up the group’s exploration of the history, architecture and culture of Spain. To top it off, the series’ theme song is a catchy version of multi Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Willie Nelson’s trademark, ‘On the Road Again’.

‘Spain… On the Road Again’, a truly star studded extravaganza, airs every Tuesday at 9 PM on the Asian Food Channel, Skycable Channel 58.
