Scary stories in Boracay

It was a chilling night in Boracay and it was way memorable as I had the first cinema experience in Boracay. Everybody is in Halloween mood and what better way to spend it is to have scary stuff playing on the big screen. I definitely did not miss this experience as my friend MJ who works for Megaworld invited me to watch horror movies inside Boracay Newcoast.
The first outdoor cinema experience in Boracay was held at Oceanway at Boracay Newcoast just for 2 nights on Halloween weekend. It was held outdoors so you get to feel the chills and deep quietness that side of Boracay. But to tone the goosebumps down, we were served with refreshments and hotdog bites and popcorn. We watched Paranormal Activity 4 which I haven't watched yet so it really raised the creeps out of me. Dubbed as "Movie Tricks, Our Treat" by the Boracay Newcoast, it also featured scariest horror flicks like Train to Busan, The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2 and The Ring. Movie passes are available at Boracay Sandcastles and screening starts as early as 4pm.
Boracay Newcoast is the biggest tourism estate development by Megaworld's Global Estate Resorts, Inc. inspired by the best beach neighborhoods. Titled lots and world-inspired hotels make it good for the investing community. One of its components is the Shophouse District that have residential and commercial components. Transporting us from the usual island-living to a whole different way of life where people can get to shop on the lower floors and relax at the comfort of their homes at the higher levels -- just like living in Key West in Florida or Old Town in Ibiza.

Its Newcoast Village offers lots ranging from 250 sqm to 375 sqm in an exclusive vacation-inspired subdivision setting. It will also have amenities like parks, pockets gardens and grill areas. Condominium clusters like Oceanway Residences offers ready-for-occupancy units with views encompassing the Fairways and Bluewater Golf Club and the Sibuyan Sea. It has been awarded as "Best Luxury Development for Resort" in the 2015 Philippine Property Awards.

They don't want to be American Idiots

9 Works Theatrical announced their first set of cast for their season-opener Green Day's American Idiot. The musical is set to open June 24-July 10 t the Globe Iconic Store, Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater, Taguig.
Let's name some of the cast:
Will's pregnant girlfriend. She leaves Will and begins a relationship with another man to protect their child, eventually leading a life of glamour in stark contrast with Will's depression. Alex Godinez also played in 2014's Grease as a member of the ensembles.

Miggy Chavez is a lead vocalist of the PH rock band, Chicosci. Now joining the theater scene as Miggy, the father of Heather's child.

American Idiot is a musical created using the songs of US punk rock band Green Day. After a run at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in 2009, the show moved to the St. James Theatre on Broadway. Previews began on March 24, 2010 and the play officially opened on April 20, 2010. The show closed on April 24, 2011 after 422 performances. While Green Day did not appear in the production, vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong performed the role of "St. Jimmy" occasionally throughout the run.

The story, expanded from that of the concept album, centers on three disaffected young men, Johnny, Will, and Tunny. Johnny and Tunny flee a stifling suburban lifestyle and parental restrictions, while Will stays home to work out his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend, Heather. The former pair look for meaning in life and try out the freedom and excitement of the city. Tunny quickly gives up on life in the city, joins the military, and is shipped off to war. Johnny turns to drugs and finds a part of himself that he grows to dislike, has a relationship and experiences lost love.

The book was written by Armstrong and director Michael Mayer. The music was composed by Green Day and the lyrics were by Armstrong. The score included all the songs from the original American Idiot album, as well as additional Green Day songs from other sources, such as the album 21st Century Breakdown, and unreleased songs originally recorded for the American Idiot musical.

The musical won two 2010 Tony Awards: Best Scenic Design of a Musical for Christine Jones, and Best Lighting Design of a Musical for Kevin Adams. It also received a nomination for Best Musical. In 2011, its Broadway cast recording won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
