Khimo Shares "Happy Ending" Story

“Idol Philippines” season 2 winner KHIMO has released his latest R&B/ soul single “Happy Ending” inspired by a long-distance relationship he previously had.

Our love story started because we both knew a couple that were in an LDR and they were on the verge of breaking up. The guy was my friend, the girl was hers,” he narrated. “We started speaking because of the other couple and their issues. That discussion turned into a conversation, and that conversation turned into our love story.

The Kapamilya singer said they ended up together in spite of their own LDR situation.

Our couple friend broke up, but we promised each other we wouldn’t be like them even though we were apart. In the end, we got together that’s why the song is called ‘Happy Ending.’”

KHIMO composed the Taglish single with the help of ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo who also produced the song, Jeremy Glinoga, and Star Pop label head Rox Santos.

“Happy Ending” follows KHIMO’s debut single “Nasunog” released last July. The two singles will be part of his upcoming album to to released under Star Music.

AIR SUPPLY Returns to the Philippines, Set to Rock Sta. Rosa, Laguna on December 15, 2023

Let's make our night better and witness the live performance of the iconic Australian soft rock duo "Air Supply", on December 15, 2023, at the Santa Rosa Sports Coliseum, Sta. Rosa, Laguna, for their "The Lost in Love Experience 2023" concert tour.

Air Supply started their career in 1975, after members Graham Russell (vocals, guitars) and Russell Hitchcock (vocals) met on the first day of rehearsals for the musical Jesus Christ Superstar in Sydney, Australia. Soon after the musical play ended in October 1976, Rod Stewart invited Air Supply to open for him on his Australian and North American tours. This is where their humble musical journey began. From then on, they had a succession of hits worldwide, including eight TOP5 hits on the US Billboard Hot 100: "Lost in Love" (1979), "All Out of Love" (1980), "Every Woman in the World" (1980), "The One That You Love" (1981), "Here I Am" (1981), "Sweet Dreams" (1982), "Even the Night Are Better" (1982), and "Making Love Out of Nothing at All" (1983).

In July 2005, their live DVD "It Was Thirty Years Ago Today" celebrated 30 years of recording and touring and, in the same month, smashed the attendance record by performing in Havana, Cuba, to 175,000 fans. In October 2012, Air Supply was honored by Gray Line’s Ride of Fame. They were inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame on December 1, 2013, at the Annual ARIA Awards. On December 2, 2014, Evolution Music Group released Air Supply’s first high-definition concert film, Air Supply: Live in Hong Kong, on their Evosound label.

In 2020, Air Supply was listed at number 48 on Rolling Stone Australia’s list of the 50 Greatest Australian Artists of All Time. And, in January 2020, the Australian newspaper Herald Sun proclaimed Air Supply in the Top 5 of "Greatest Aussie Bands" of all time in the company of AC/DC, The Bee Gees, and INXS.

This will be their second time at the same venue which is anticipated to sell out just like the first time in 2018. Both concerts produced by Ovation Productions. Tap Go TV and Blast TV are the official media partners. Tickets are available starting Monday, September 25, 2023, at and priced at 5500/4500/3500/2500/1500 plus ticketing fees.

airasia Digital Announces Next MOVE, Unveiling New Era of Travel Innovation

In a strategic move to emphasise its commitment towards travel, the digital arm of Capital A, airasia Digital announces its transformation into MOVE Digital (MOVE). This rebranding marks an exciting chapter in its next phase of growth through both its businesses, airasia Superapp and BigPay.

MOVE’s travel platform business, airasia Superapp will also undergo a brand refresh and change its name to ‘airasia move’ in the near future as part of the ongoing transformation.

The visionary co-founder of AirAsia and CEO of Capital A, Tony Fernandes will assume the role of Executive Chairman of MOVE. He will play a pivotal role in driving the close collaboration between both airasia Superapp (now airasia move) and BigPay to unlock the true potential and synergy of these digital businesses.

Tony Fernandes, Executive Chairman of MOVE said, “The name MOVE signifies us better as the digital arm of Capital A, and reiterates our commitment to move people, ideas and innovation forward within the travel space. Imagine seamless access to travel and financial services on one single platform, with integrated financial features such as balance display, top-up and payments from BigPay and further strengthening the value proposition of airasia move as the travel app of choice. My role as the Executive Chairman of MOVE will be to enhance synergy between both businesses. With this change, the market can expect an enriching user experience aside from more integration of BigPay features within the airasia Superapp (now airasia move) very soon.”

In this new era of travel innovation for MOVE, we are happy to welcome Nadia Omer into the organisation as the new Chief Executive Officer of airasia move effective 26 October. Her key priority will be to further drive airasia move’s vision as a low-cost travel platform with high conversion, while closely collaborating with BigPay, led by Zubin Rada Krishnan. Mohamad Hafidz, who is currently the acting CEO will continue leading the business in the interim and I would like to thank him for his contributions throughout the past few months.”

The airasia Superapp, or what will be called airasia move soon, has swiftly become a one-stop travel platform offering value and convenience through seamless end-to-end booking experiences within the past two years, while BigPay has established itself as an innovative fintech provider enabling Southeast Asians to improve their lives through better financial management.

Both of Capital A’s digital businesses have been making significant strides, with airasia Superapp (now airasia move) reaching its highest recorded MAU (monthly active users) of 15 million at the end of the second quarter, while BigPay saw its carded users grow by 16% YoY for the same period.

MOVE Digital Sdn Bhd (formerly known as airasia Digital Sdn Bhd) is the digital arm of Capital A Berhad, and encompasses two transformative businesses: airasia Superapp (now airasia move) and BigPay. MOVE is dedicated to revolutionising the travel and financial services sectors by offering innovative, user-centric solutions at the best value.
