“Life of Pi" , The Journey of a Lifetime

 “Life of Pi,” is a great movie by Oscar winning filmmaker Ang Lee and  based on a screenplay by David Magee. “Life of Pi's” newbie thespian Suraj Sharma nominated in 18th  CRITICS’ CHOICE MOVIE AWARDS.

“Life of Pi,” a breathtakingly beautiful story of a boy named Pi played by newcomer Suraj Sharma who is lost at sea with a Bengal tiger, following the loss of his family in a shipwreck. 
Suraj Sharma who hails from India never expected a “Life of Pi” when he accompanied his brother to the movie’s casting call.  Born and raised in Delhi, India and raised by mathematician parents, it seemed that from more than 3,000 hopefuls who auditioned for the role, Suraj was destined to play the role of Pi, a mathematical constant transcendental number.
He has recently been nominated in the upcoming Critics’ Choice Movie Awards for Best Young Actor for his role in “Life of Pi” along with other actors/actresses such as Elle Fanning (“Ginger & Rosa”) and Logan Lerman (“Perks of Being a Wallflower”).
The story revolves around Pi, a delightfully enthusiastic teenager who lives with his zoo-keeping family in Pondicherry, India. Inquisitive and intelligent, he explores different cultures and spiritual traditions. Pi has open-minded parents who allow him to become a free thinker, finding his own path. Due to a worsening economic climate, Pi’s parents decide to emigrate to start a new life in Canada. But the ship sinks.  Eventually only Pi and the tiger are left alive on the lifeboat and the unlikely pair embarks on an Odyssey that is fraught with danger.  On the precarious lifeboat he shares with the tiger, Pi finds inner strength and becomes aware that some kind of higher power is in charge of his destiny.
The heightened emotional connections presented in the movie required exceptional performances from its cast, none more so than the neophyte thespian who would take on the titular hero.   
“We searched for a young man who had the innocence to capture our attention, the depth of character to break our hearts, and the physicality needed to embody Pi on his journey,” says director Ang Lee. "During his audition, Suraj filled the room with emotion, much of which he conveyed simply through his eyes. His natural ability to believe and stay in the world of the story is a rare treasure.
“Suraj’s investment in the story made us really believe that whatever challenges we faced, the film was really going to happen,” adds the director.  “When we saw Suraj, we saw the movie.  Mr. Lee marvels at Suraj’s innocence and efforts, noting, “We are all experienced and perhaps a little jaded.  Suraj reminded us why we want to make movies. Every day was a miracle.”

For Suraj Sharma, the experience of landing the starring role was surreal. “It was all so new for me,” says Suraj. “I had never been out of India. I didn’t know how to act or swim. I learned how to swim and now it’s my favorite thing to do.  Shooting the film in Taiwan and meeting people from all over the world in the crew was fantastic. You get an idea of how diverse the world is. I was really inspired by everything I saw and everyone I got to know.  I wanted to give it everything I had.”

Sharma also went through rigorous workouts to increase his stamina, which gave him an inner discipline and strength that enabled him to empathize with the character. 
“What defines Pi is his never-ending will to survive, he has a belief in the world and I think that’s what sets him apart from everyone else. He survives by instinct. But he also possessed a strong sprit from the beginning, right from being a child. But Pi kept that innocence inside him and with innocence comes belief.”

“Life of Pi” opens January 9 in 3D and 2D theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox thru Warner Bros.

Happy Connections : Pinoy Entrepreneurs Can Do More with Globe Business Tools

Entrepreneur and Globe Business ambassador Happy Ongpauco-Tiu is passionate about business--but is still happiest as a wife and mother. 

It’s not so easy to fulfil her various roles, however, because of her many responsibilities.  Happy says that she always tries her best to live a balanced life as an entrepreneur, wife, and mother.
“I am a housewife, a mother and an entrepreneur. I wake up in the morning to tend to Renzo before he goes to school.  Soon, I take care of my baby Franchesco too! Then I check paper works for the office.  By lunch time, I try my best to visit my restaurants when I’m not busy at home. 

“After lunch, I meet with my Management team for daily updates, do calls... calls.., calls, and emails to delegate responsibilities to my staff especially for my out-of-town branches. 

“Then in the afternoon I tend to my family and prepare dinner for them.  After dinner, I spend quality time with my Hubby and kids – the highlight of the day that I enjoy the most!” she said.

Restaurateur

Her family founded the iconic Barrio Fiesta restaurant way back in 1958 made Filipinos fall in love with their kare-kare, crispy pata and other dishes. It’s no wonder that when Happy grew up, she naturally went into the food business herself.

She’s helping run their family business, as Corporate Secretary of the Barrio Fiesta Group Middle East operations.

Happy also runs her own food company now—the Happy Concept Group of Companies—after establishing several restaurants including World Topps; Bento Box (American-inspired Japanese food); Hawaiian Bar-B-Que Restaurant (Boracay & Tagaytay); I Luv Backyard BBQ joint in Boracay; and Pamana Restaurant in Tagaytay.

She also has My Happy carts (themed food carts for kiddie parties) and her own Catering Kitchen which features Chef Happy’s homemade specialties.

Happy has even gone into the hotel business with her Boutique Bed & Breakfast in Tagaytay (a 7-bedroom boutique hotel with themed rooms) and the wellness business as well: Slim at Home, a mobile slimming clinic complete with doctors and medical assistants.

But wait. With all of these taking her time and attention, how does she every find time for her family and herself?

HAPPILY HIGH-TECH. Being tech-savvy makes entrepreneur and Globe Business Ambassador Happy Ongpauco-Tiu an effective businesswoman as well as a much beloved wife and mother. According to Happy, her use of telecoms solutions from Globe Business helps her have a balanced life: she can effectively run her business even when she's on-the-go, and she has more free time to be there for her husband and kids
Telecoms technology

In her efforts to balance her many roles, Happy is thankful that she uses modern telecoms technology provided by Globe Business solutions.

“I got my first mobile phone more than 20 years ago,” she says.  “When my Dad got me one, on the very first year Globe offered mobile phones. It felt really great having to be able to communicate with other people just with a gadget.”

Through Globe Business solutions, Happy can instantly reach her employees through call, SMS, landline and vice versa. 

“As an entrepreneur, I am able to fulfil my responsibilities with the efficient assistance of Globe’s product lines,” she said.

Especially since most of her businesses are out of town or abroad, her needs for mobile phone, land line, and the Internet is crucial to running and troubleshooting the day-to-day needs of an enterprise.

While no business will ever succeed without the owner’s hands-on presence, a reliable Internet connection and a clear line on a phone can enable Happy to delegate, manage and connect instantly when the need arises.

Filipino entrepreneurs like Happy, who adopt the newest communications services and technology available to get in touch instantly with personnel on the ground for business, are finding it easier to manage their operations even from afar.

“Especially in the kind of business that I am in, it’s a 24-hour monitoring thing,” she explains. ”You can get calls in the middle of the night to solve or answer queries. I have to say that modern telecoms technology is indispensible in this time & age. To be able to monitor your business from wherever you are at any time of the day is of utmost importance to ensure good service and finished products.” 

More powerful texting

Globe Business Unlitext and Call is the solution to making affordable calls within a given team or staff of associates. It provides discounted rates on Globe Prepaid, Globe Postpaid, and Globe Landline.

Happy also uses Globe Business TxtConnect to maximize the reach of the SMS that she sends. TxtConnect is ideal for high-volume text campaigns and SMS blasts to employees and customers—with just one send, the SMS is broadcast to a large group of recipients. The service is Web-based, so it’s much easier to send compared to regular text messaging or making phone calls.

TxtConnect is charges lower text message rates. Subscribing to TxtConnect can save an entrepreneur as much as 35% in cost compared to a regular text messaging service. TxtConnect subscription plans start at as low as P1500 per month.

As the kind of entrepreneur who takes advantage of the current tech services, Happy has had to learn to use both mobile phones and the Internet to keep track of her many professional commitment.

“Whichever is needed,” she agrees. “I do surf the Internet a lot especially nowadays that it’s almost impossible to transact business without it.”

In a time when modern telecom technology is developing at an exponential rate, each year offers more and more advantages for the Pinoy entrepreneur on the go. Its benefits are essential to bringing forward the success of any activity at a level where things are communicated clearer; problems are solved easier, at a pace that you dictate and doesn’t need to slow down.

Get business done quicker and, like Happy, enjoy time with your family free of the pressures of always having to be there.  

“Globe products and services is my connection not only to my employees but to my clients as well,” smiles Happy. “Globe is definitely a reliable partner in my day-to-day living”

Globe Business is the corporate arm of Globe Telecom, the leading telecommunications company in the Philippines. Globe Business provides wireless and wireline solutions for a diverse set of industries, businesses, and commercial enterprises.

Globe Business assures SMEs of affordable, reliable, and dependable services for all communication needs, both wireless and wireline solutions, to generate the highest possible profit at the lowest possible cost.

Celebrities share their favorite Disney memories

Disney holds a special place in everyone’s hearts, young and old. And almost every year since 1990, the Disney on Ice show has captivated audiences from all ages and from all walks of life.
This year, Disney on Ice presents Princesses and Heroes, another spectacular show that will truly delight, excite, and enthrall everyone. Eight Disney Princesses, Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Tiana and their respective handsome princes will tell the audience their inspiring stories through artistic skating and graceful acrobatics and prove once more that wishes do come true for those who believe.
Even for some of our local celebrities, a Disney on Ice show is nothing short of magical. From the elegantly-designed costumes, magnificent fairytale sets, and charming characters, this annual ice show is something they also look forward to. But the Disney on Ice experience does not stop with the show itself. “It’s been a long time since I last saw Disney on Ice...I was probably first year high school or grade six. I remember there was a flashlight, Minnie Mouse was what I got, na parang umiikot-ikot siya. And then there was a mug, and there was cotton candy!” says actress Iza Calzado. A Disney on Ice show can also bring you back to your memorable childhood years. “Oh I need to see Disney on Ice again!” Iza adds.

Singer-actress Karylle remembers seeing a Disney on Ice show when she treated a few lucky kids from her chosen charity. But when asked about her favorite Disney memory, she fondly recalls her serendipitous meet-up with her favorite princess, Cinderella. “I went to Disneyland recently, and I met Cinderella. I met her, and she asked me where I was from. I said I was from the Philippines, and she was like, ‘That’s a beautiful kingdom!’ so she’s now my friend. And then she told me to pose like a princess, and when I left I curtsied, and she curtsied back and I was like, ‘Hah, I’m a princess,’” she shares with a delighted laugh.

Miss Universe Philippines 2012 Janine Tugonon, on the other hand, could not help but admire the skill and grace of the performers when she saw Disney on Ice last year. “Sobrang gusto ko yung mag-partners. Sina Princess Jasmine and Aladdin, sina Ariel and Prince Eric, and yung others. Nanonood kasi ako dati ng mga ice skating competitions sa TV, so nag-enjoy ako panoorin yung ginawa nila dun. Nagalingan talaga ako kasi hindi lang simpleng skating yung pinakita nila; talagang may turns and lifts,” she says.
Already a mom of two, TV host Christine Bersola-Babao still treasures every Disney on Ice show she watched, from when she was a young girl until now. “Even when I was in high school, di ba meron nang Disney on Ice nun? Dinadala ako ng mommy ko. And we’ve been watching Disney on Ice when it’s shown here. You’re planting happy memories in a child’s mind every time you bring them to Disney on Ice,” she says.

Singer JM Rodriguez reveals that this favorite Disney Christmas hero is Scrooge. “I played the young Scrooge in a musical for Repertory. From watching Disney shows, I learned that wishes can come true if you believe, focus and work on it.”
Prepare to be enchanted by the lovely Disney Princesses and their dashing princes in this “ice-spectacular” show. Troop over to the Smart Araneta Coliseum to catch Disney on Ice presents Princesses and Heroes from December 25, 2012 to January 3, 2013.

Another award-winning masterpiece of the celebrated independent filmmaker Brillante Ma Mendoza , “Thy Womb (Sinapupunan)” is one of the 8 entries in Metro Manila Film Festival 2012.
This film stars internationally acclaimed actress Nora Aunor, who is making a comeback in the movie industry. She play as Shaleha Sarail, a Badjao midwife in Tawi-Tawi. She struggles to cope with the irony of her own infertility amidst the deprivation of her community. A saga of island life stuck between the devil of passion and the deep blue sea of tradition.

The province is a seaweed-producing spot in the southern most part of the Philippines down to the Malaysian and Indonesian archipelagos. Aging and still smarting from three miscarriages in the past, Shaleha agonizes over her failure to bear a child. Though an adoptive parent to her nephew, she still feels that her husband Bangas-An (Bembol Roco) desires to be a father. To fulfill her husband’s only wish and to be blessed by Allah--in her belief that having a child is a tangible proof of divine grace--Shaleha resolves to find a new partner for her husband. Night and day, she and her husband sail from their floating village to nearby island communities in search of a fertile woman. Providentially, Shaleha finds the girl as recommended by friends. But on the eve of her husband’s second marriage to Mersila (Lovi Poe), jealousy gnaws and consumes Shaleha.
Thy Womb (Tagalog: Sinapupunan) is a 2012 Filipino drama film starring Nora Aunor, Bembol Roco Mercedes Cabral, and Lovi Poe. Produced by Center Stage Productions and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the film is written by Henry Burgos and directed by 2009 Cannes Film Festival Best Director Brillante Mendoza.
