Be in Style with the LG G4 Stylus

PRESS RELEASE: LGStylusA few months after the celebrated homecoming of the LG G4 in the Philippines, mobile technology innovator LG Electronics introduces a new member in what seems to be an LG G4 family in the works. Bearing almost similar features as the flagship LG G4, LG Mobile Philippines introduces the LG G4 Stylus.
Supreme display

The LG G4 Stylus inherits the arc shaped body similar to the flagship smartphone; the slim arc design allows for perfect comfortable grip of the user preventing the device to slip and drop from your hand. Take note though that the G4 Stylus is a phablet that has a relatively larger screen compared to the flagship. With a zero-gap in-cell hybrid touch technology with 5.7-inch HD IPS screen 720p display, the G4 Stylus is the perfect handset for those who value better viewing experience for games and movies or for those who take notes seriously.

Make your mark in style

As the name suggests, the LG G4 Stylus comes with an enhanced rubberdium stylus pen perfect for taking down notes and memos. Enjoy the 5.7-inch screen and scribble and doodle away on the built-in Quick Memo+ application on the G4 Stylus. The enhanced stylus pen works together with in-cell hybrid touch technology which makes the screen more responsive to touch contact and lets you surf the net with maximum ease, write down notes, draw, edit photos, and color with such accuracy and precision. Both the young and the old can make the most of the stylus pen with coloring book apps like Colorfy available in Playstore becoming a trend today.

How about NBA Fashion on Project Runaway?

If you think it’s just male models and fashion forward guys who have style cred, think again.

The most stylish and coolest men in the planet are probably in sports – professional basketball, most notably. Cool, confident and loaded with swag, NBA players now appear catwalk-ready, whether they’re checking in for their pre-game walk-through, chillin’ away from the court, or doing business outside of the playing arena.

Credit the A-List look on NBA players to a dress code instituted in 2005 by then National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern who felt that players should wear a ‘business casual’ attire every time they ‘engaged in a team or league business.’ This includes all games (pre-game and postgame), press interviews, and charity events throughout the season.
PRP2Now NBA players set fashion trends, are looked up to as icons of good fashion sense and sophistication. In 2006 LeBron James appointed stylist Rachel Johnson to take over his work wardrobe and made even bigger waves off the court. Those with wilder tastes – like Dwayne Wade, who started the revolution of ultra colorful basketball socks with fun designs – have gained their own cult following.

Today, the NBA’s pre-game and postgame routines are as watched as the games themselves – mainly because that’s where one sees star players coming or going, dressed to the nines or sporting the most desirable smart casual duds while they sport Dre headphones and listen to music that pumps them up for the game.

Individual players have developed their own styles and are copied for it. Like RussellWestbook’s polka-dot dress shirts and eyeglasses without any glass; LeBron James’ bowler hats, Melo Anthony’s’s trench coats, Dwyane Wade’s scarves, and Amare’ Stoudemire’s Italian-made suits.

Not just basic rags, but also accessories have a language all their own. Suddenly, every basketball crazy Tom Dick and Harry can capture the look and aura of the incredibly cool NBA player by throwing together “a look”. And where to get the best NBA looks than from the NBA Store?Recently, the fashion reality television series Project Runway Philippines, the Philippine adaptation of Project Runway produced by Solar Entertainment and Unitel Productions took the style and fashion swag of the NBA to a whole new level.On Sunday, August 16, Filipino designers competed on the show by creating a fashion look from items available in the NBA SStore at the Glorietta.
PRP1Gilas Pilipinas’ forward Gabe Norwood, one of the acknowledged more fashionable players in Philippine basketball, was one of the judges as competing young designersput their own twist to NBA jerseys, shirts, shorts, shoes and accessories. NBA Philippines Country Manager Carlo Singson was on the show as well and tried to suggest some possible designs. The six remaining designers went to the NBA Store, chose their basketball jerseys then proceeded to create a total look out of the other pieces they chose. How did the various NBA fashion looks do on the runway?

If you missed this cool basketball edition of Project Runway, get some fashion ideas, NBA-style by catching the replays on ETC on Tuesday, August 18 on ETC at 7-8 a.m. and 2-3 p.m.; Wednesday, August 19 from 10-11 p.m.; Thursday, August 20 from 3-4 a.m., 10-11 a.m. and 5-6 p.m.; Saturday, August 22 from 1-2 p.m. and Sunday, August 233 from 8-9 a.m. Fresh episodes of Project Runway run every Sunday from 7 to 8 p.m.

Yes! Indie Movies Heaven: Cinemalaya 2015 Broadening Horizons Aug 7-15

cinemalaya5cinemalaya4Cinemalaya 2015 – Broadening Horizons
Year 11 

Philippine Independent Film Festival
August 7 -15, 2015 
Cultural Center of the Philippines
Greenbelt 3 Cinema 5 

Soooo excited to watch these entries and more this film festival season. I even have actor-friends in some of the entries so that makes it all the more fun cheering and supporting them.

Independent films are far better to watch these days and even the past few years for me because of the freshness of its storyline plots and even conflicts and twists. Although mainstream movies have more of the budget chunk, indie films hardly have big budgets that back them up and yet, in the end they still come out very well made and very well acted by the best actors. So its quality over quantity over these films.

Looking forward to watching and viewing these films at the CCP and just like in the past and the now, expecting a bigger turn out of viewers patronizing Filipino-made films by various talented and gifted directors and writers made complete by professional actors who are passionate and dedicated with their crafts.
