Top 10 Philippine TV Shows 2012

ABS-CBN, the Kapamilya station, has fully monopolized the Philippine TV market ratings with all the top 10 slots dominated by its programs. The top 10 TV shows in the Philippines for 2012 were all created by ABS-CBN. No other competitor successfully fielded its TV show in the top 10 highest rated shows in 2012.

Kiddie-oriented morally grounded TV program Wansapanataym led the lisst of top 10 TV shows in 2012.


According to multinational market research group Kantar Media, the top 10 TV programs in 2012 are the following:

1. Wansapanataym (ABS-CBN)
2. Princess and I (ABS-CBN)
3. Ina, Kapatid, Anak (ABS-CBN)
4. TV Patrol (ABS-CBN)
5. Maalaala Mo Kaya (ABS-CBN)
6. Aryana (ABS-CBN)
7. Kapamilya Deal or No Deal (ABS-CBN)

9. Goin' Bulilit (ABS-CBN)
10. Rated K (ABS-CBN)

Kantar Media makes use of a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, a size larger than AGB Nielsen's 1,980 homes that are only based in urban areas, which grants Kantar Media a higher coverage than the latter.

Cheapest iPad Mini (Lowest Price) in the Philippines

The iPad Mini is one of the sought-after gadgets for giveaway or gift-giving this Christmas - the full iPad experience in a smaller device. 


In Apple's overview of the iPad Mini:
Everything you love about iPad — the beautiful screen, fast and fluid performance, FaceTime and iSight cameras, thousands of amazing apps, 10-hour battery life* — is everything you’ll love about iPad mini, too. And you can hold it in one hand.
Apple's iPad Mini is already available in the Philippines, through Apple Philippines. Its prices are considered one of the cheapest, lowest in the market. Apple Philippines boasts of the cheapest iPad Mini tablets in the country.

The prices of the iPad Mini, similarly with that of its predecessor iPad versions, are influenced by the memory it possesses.

Here are the lowest prices of iPad Mini in the Philippine market:
  • iPad Mini (16 GB, WiFi only) – 15,990 PHP
  • iPad Mini (32 GB, WiFi only) – 20,990 PHP
  • iPad Mini (64 GB, WiFi only) – 25,990 PHP
  • iPad Mini (16GB, WiFi + Cellular) – 21,990 PHP
  • iPad Mini (32GB, WiFi + Cellular) – 26,990 PHP
  • iPad Mini (64GB, WiFi + Cellular) – 31,990 PHP
The difference of 6,000 Php comes from added convenience in roaming connection through fast mobile data networks (cellular). Shipment of the iPad Mini could take up to two (2) weeks; not bad at all. A limit of only two iPad Minis per customer is currently imposed to give everyone the opportunity to grab an iPad Mini before the year ends.

Alien skulls in Mexico?

Researchers have found 33 alien-like skulls in a site called El Cementerio, a thousand-year-old cemetery, in the small Mexican village of Onabas. So, are they actually aliens?


These deformed skulls' elongated appearance is believed to have been head bones of those of children who underwent a process called artificial cranial deformation (head binding), particularly done widespread on infants in Central America.

This deformation is a form of body alteration in which the skull of a human being is intentionally deformed, in this case, changing the natural growth of heads influenced by the pressure-causing binding which led to elongated, pointy heads (resembling weird alien-like head facets) and consequential death of the children.

Justin Bieber target of murder plot?

An unverified report from Cover Media revealed Justin Bieber being targeted in a murder plot. Below is the full story of the Yahoo! News report. Who was behind this plot to do something bad on Justin Bieber?
Justin Bieber was targeted in a murder plot by a convicted killer in New Mexico, according to a local report. 
Las Cruces prison inmate Dana Martin recruited Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane to castrate and murder the 18-year-old singer in New York City last month, KRQE News reports. 
Justin was in town performing at Madison Square Garden at the time.
The motive for the alleged plot is currently unknown. 
Dana is serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in 2000.
He reportedly told police the trio planned to kidnap Justin and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties. 
The convict, who has a tattoo of Justin on his leg, once used paisley ties as his calling card. 
Tanner planned to castrate Justin and his bodyguard, it is alleged.
The news outlet reports Dana alerted authorities about the plot before it could be carried out. 
Mark Staake was subsequently arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants.
Tanner Ruane was reportedly found with a pair of pruning sheers when he was arrested in New York City. © Cover Media

PH is one of most terrorism-hit nations

The Philippines is considered among the most terrorism-hit countries in the world ranking 10th in the latest Global Terrorism Index report released by the Australia-based Institute for Economics and Peace.

PH obtained an index score of 6.8 points, as it recorded 125 incidents of terrorism-related acts in the Philippines last year which led to a total of 120 deaths and 213 injuries. The Global Terrorism Index is "based on a unique scoring system to account for the relative impact of incidents in the year."

Comparing the fatality count with that in 2003, 212 deaths, the number of fatalities is substantially lower, but higher than what was recorded in 2006 - a minimum of 19 deaths.

Iraq topped the list of terrorism-affected countries. Next to it in the terrorism list were Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Thailand and Russia.

Pacquiao vs Marquez Fight 4 Results | Pacquiao Estimated Earnings

Marquez vs Pacquiao Fight 4 Update:
In an expected turn of events, Manny Pacquiao got knocked down by Marquez in the remaining seconds of Round 6 in their much-awaited match, Pacquiao vs Marquez 4, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A powerful left hit Marquez at the early stages of the sixth round, yet his determination to take down Pacquiao pushed him to succeed with a strong right while Pacquiao was about to launch his move.

Prior his sudden KO, Pacquiao won round 5 with a 10-8 score.

Still, Pacquiao left the ring not empty-handed as he was still set to earn a huge sum of earnings from his fight contract plus those which he earned in HBO's pay-per-view subscription.

BE UPDATED ON FUTURE FIGHTS AND OThER PHILIPPINE NEWS. Follow the Spotlight Philippines blog on Facebook.


International boxing icon Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO) will once again be fighting with Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO) in the arch-rivals' 4th and (hopefully) final boxing match in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday (December 8).

In another news, looks like Pacquiao will receive anew for his purse almost 1 billion pesos or more in assured earnings from his Saturday (US time) title-defending match with Marquez.

It's been reported on Yahoo! News and elsewhere that, not considering  his HBO pay-per-view income, he is guaranteed a paycheck of $23 million or approximately P943 million. That's a huge amount!! Now, add to that what he'll earn from the pay-per-view subscription of international boxing fans!

Top Rank chief Bob Arum said Pacquiao, after the match, would be getting between $28 million (P1.1 billion) to $30 million (P1.2 billion). His winning in his fight with Marquez, which is expected mostly by Filipinos everywhere in the world, will definitely boost the morale and help Pablo victims get on with life.

According to Forbes, Pacquiao is among the highest-paid athletes in the world. For the June 2011-2012 period, he earned $56 million in purses and $6 million in endorsements landing at second place in the Forbes list of highest-paid athletes, sitting next to another international boxing superfighter Floyd Mayweather with $85 million in earnings.

One cannot deny Pacquiao is bearing the fruits of his hard labor and unbeatable discipline. He's still flying high in his boxing career.

Don't miss the annual Geminids meteor shower on December 13!

It's one hell of a treat for stargazers out there, especially those in the provinces - of course, considering we have favorable weather around. The annual Geminids meteor shower will reach its peak on the night of December 13 to dawn of  December 14, so camp out and watch the sky be filled with these "falling stars".

Photo Courtesy: SpaceWeather
"The annual Geminids meteor shower will reach its peak in the night of December 13-14. Under a dark and cloudless sky just after midnight of its peak activity, meteors or 'falling stars' can be seen at an average rate of forty meteors per hour. The shower will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, the Twin," PAGASA admin Nathaniel Servando said on Yahoo!

As many as 40 meteors may be visibly seen after midnight of December 13! It will definitely be a wonderful night to remember!

Pet Fair Philippines Photos; Upcoming Pet Shows on December 8!


At least 80 bettas were judged during the Mini Friendship Cup of ABA.
This one won a place in a certain category!
I actually went to the 2nd Pet Fair Philippines held at the Starmall Edsa-Shaw last November 24-25, but I unfortunately forgot to take pictures. However, one of the members of the Circle of Hamster Owners of the Philippines (CHOP) managed to share to me the photos she took personally and/or grabbed from peers.

Here are the pictures of what happened in the Pet Fair Philippines 2. All photos credited to Miss Ruth Avelino and the photographers (Sir Aeking) behind it.

And as promised, there were pets on display such as wonderful bettas, birds,gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, hedgehogs, mice, snakes, tarantulas and tortoises.

This one's a fat-tailed gerbil owned by a CHOP member, Sir Caezar.
I got to hold it; definitely, one of the CHOP's exhibit stars.

A roborovski hamster, the smallest of all hamsters, takes shelter under
the drinking bottle. Hope  you spotted it!

Visitors wander around different exhibits. This is the CHOP exhibit.
They produced hamster care sheets which deemed really helpful for first-time hamster owners.

This, apparently, is a snake (ball python?).
I was able to place it like a scarf around my neck. Not scary though.

These chubby creatures are hamsters. I think these were imported from Europe just for the exhibit.
They' really resemble big fur balls. Thanks to El Kapitan Hamstery for bringing them in the PH.

This is the HamVille exhibit set up by Sir Baych of HamVille and friends from the Hamster Lovers Organization (HLO). Different colors of hamsters were  on view here.

These are the hamster care sheets of CHOP.

A bird sits calmly atop a hamster bin. This green-colored species  has been tamed; that's why it does not fly away . It's easy to tame birds, really. :) You just have to understand them and how they take defense in a new environment.

A guinea pig! I got to see a lot of these in Pet Galore's buy-and-sell area.
The booth they had displayed for-sale pet accessories and treats.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On December 8, Saturday, another pet-related event will take place this time in Quezon City. Dubbed as the Hamster Pet Show and Exhibit, it will be a hamster competition which will be conducted at Jackman Plaza, Munoz, QC. The event proper will commence at 4 PM and end at 6 PM; however, an HLO-CHOP exhibit of hamsters may be viewed at the venue starting at 10 AM.

During the 4 to 6 PM time slot,  anyone can join the raffle for 10 Php per raffle entry only. More entries, more chances of winning!



There will be no entrance fee to the said event, and to those who will be bringing with them their hamsters as show entries, there will be NO a registration fee as well.

For the revised mechanics of the hamster pet show, proceed here. Awards to be given away include Best in Show and Best of Breed. Other special and minor awards are at stake, including Darling of the Crowd (People's Choice), Heaviest Hamster, and Best Pattern. Registration starts at 1 PM and ends at 3 PM.



The Hamster Pet Show and Exhibit is one of three-event package offered to you by various pet organizations in what they call as the PCFI Nationals, an Integrated Show with PEHSi, CHOP, and HLO. The two other shows set to take place in the same venue will be the National Guinea Pig Show (conducted by the Philippine Cavy Fanciers Inc., PCFI) and the 2nd Hedgehog Fun  Show (spearheaded by the Philippine Exotic Hedgehog Society Inc., PEHSI). CHOP and HLO are partners in the said hamster show.


The Spotlight Philippines blog admins are, once again, glad to take part in this event.

Zoren-Carmina Legaspi Wedding Replay: Always Forever, A Wedding Like No Other

I missed the special TV screening of what was dubbed as the Wedding of the Year. This came to fruition when Zoren Legaspi, together with its accomplices and principal sponsors, planned on a surprise marriage proposal which eventually led to a civil marriage on the day itself, November 15, 2012.

Add to the excitement the presence of their cute twins, Mavy and Cassy, and big-time guests; a video replay of the Zoren-Carmina Legaspi wedding I cannot help but post in this blog. Was really teary-eyed because it really set the bar so high that Filipino men seemed to have been challenged by this special wedding ceremony. After the viewing of the wedding special on ABS-CBN, which I terribly forgot to watch due to lack of rest, Facebook users posted happy tweets and Facebook posts on their walls with a gush of emotions gobbling up the whole Pinoy cyber world.

Thus, I posted below the video replay of the special screening of the Zoren-Carmina nuptials; this is definitely something to watch!



AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 Results: PH Azkals vs Thailand War Elephants


The Philippines' Team Azkals bowed down to Thailand's War Elephants once again in their match Saturday night, November 24, in Bangkok during the 2012 ASEAN Footbal Federation (AFF) Cup.

The War Elephants blasted two goals within minutes of each other; the first, at the 38′-39' mark, pushed by Jakkraphan Pornsia, and the second, through Anucha Kitpongsri, at the 40′-41' ending the score in the first half with a 2-0 lead.

Paul Mulders scored at the 77th minute for the Philippines which gave momentum for the Azkals until head coach Michael Weiss was ejected for throwing a ball at Anucha during a dead ball situation, at 81′.

Azkals is set to contend  with Vietnam (November 27) and Myanmar (November 30).
