Cebu Pacific Flight Attendants Dancing to the Beat of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry

I saw this video awhile ago through a post in Facebook, mainly discussing the undeniably irresistible promotional video made by Cebu Pacific to entertain its customers in the cabin and, at the same time, to allow the customers to learn the emergency procedures to the music of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Currently, the video has gained 1.8 million viewers and apparently, it's receiving concise, significant recognition from various viewers across the globe.

Well, what's can we say? Filipinos are becoming more and more innovative today. :) Kudos Cebu Pacific!

Britney Spears/ Brittany Episode on Glee, September 28, 2010

The Britney Spears Episode is targeted to air today.

Pop Star Spears herself will be doing a cameo role in the episode along with some of her chart-topping hits like “…Baby One More Time” and “Toxic,” and she says, “Working on Glee was an amazing experience.”

Check out this cool video of some of Glee's main cast talking about Britney and the new episode.

In the Britney/Brittany episode, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) insists that the glee club perform adult contemporary music at the school assembly, but the kids have other plans.

As New Directions mounts its campaign to perform Britney Spears’ greatest hits, they learn that their own Brittany (Heather Morris pictured above with Ms. Spears) has a connection to the famous performer. Meanwhile, Will meets Emma’s (Jayma Mays) new love interest, Dr. Carl (John Stamos), who sparks a rivalry between the two men as they vie for her attention.

Glee airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

Actress Romina Yankelevich De Giaccomi, better known as Romina Yan, at the age of 36, (Bella y Bestia, Casi Angeles) has passed away due to a heart attack. She was at home when she began to feel ill. Her friend drove her to the emergency room, where they attempted to revive her for fifty minutes until she was declared dead.

An Argentine actress, it can be remembered that she debuted in television programme Jugate Conmigo, followed by internatonally successful series Chiquititas, created by her mother Cris Morena.

Her last main acts happened in year 2009 which include the series Casi Angeles, and the film Horizontal/Vertical.

My sincerest thoughts and prayers go to her family. For sure, she will be missed a lot.

Free Unlimited Text (UNLITXT) from TELUS and Globe

Today, September 28, 2010, the TELUS, in cooperation with Globe Telecom, launched a one-day long free text messaging for Globe users. To avail of this free unlimited Globe-to-Globe texting service, just type in UNLITXT TELUS and send it to 8888.

I don't know why Telus is doing this, but something fishy (promotional) is intensely bursting out of my mind. Hope nothing bad happens in the days that are to come. Could it be that Telus is going to be a subsidiary of Globe Telecom?

My friends were really shocked in surprise that what was thought to be a scam was actually true, and people everywhere are talking about it. It's not fake, however, I'm still finding it hard to access the service as more and more people are becoming aware of this unlimited texting opportunity.
