‘Ming ♥ Tomas,’ an Innovative New Web Series that Will Make You Laugh and Want to Fall in Love Now Streams for FREE

Justin Besana, the creative mind behind posters of critically-acclaimed movies is behind the colorful and quirky poster 
of Ming ♥ Tomas

When so much media nowadays seems to be about challenging things happening around us, romcoms offer us a breath of fresh air. At their very best, romantic comedies are sheer joy. They are about forging human connections and people bringing out the best from one another. It is a genre that’s about delivering joy and kilig to the audience. Watching a romcom feels worthwhile because they rekindle our hope for love and the best that life can offer with its fair share of laughs in store for the viewers.

Launched by the Philippines’ favorite pampagana, Mang Tomas All- Around Sarsa, the new three-episode series “Ming ♥ Tomas” delivers the thrills that every kilig-hunter hopes to take comfort in. The series offers viewers everything that one should expect from the genre: a cast of lovably authentic characters that follow a storyline with the perfect emotional hook and laughs that will keep men and women of all ages glued to their screen.

Ming ♥ Tomas shows how fate brings together two individuals on different life paths to fall in love. On one hand, we have Ming, a sweet and dainty girl blessed with a ganado appetite, proving that anyone regardless of gender and physical build can be a true macho ganado with the perfect meal partner like Mang Tomas. On the other hand, we have Tomas, a hardworking boy who has more sides than meets the eye. Each episode reveals several twists and turns to their love story that makes you excited and curious about what’s going to happen next.

At the helm of the project are award-winning directors Joel Ferrer and Chris Cahilig. Shot exclusively on mobile phones with the guidance of Tristan Cua who’s dubbed as the father of mobile filmmaking in the Philippines, the video offers us a more intimate and immersive view into the lives of the characters. As a format, using mobile phone for filming made the series feel very authentic, almost as if you’re with the characters. Beyond sharing conversations over dinner, is there a more intimate experience these days than connecting through the phone screen?

You can catch the first two episodes of Ming ♥ Tomas for FREE on the Mang Tomas Facebook page and NutriAsia YouTube page, with the first episode “AngMANGhuhula” here, and the second episode “Ang GANAduo” here.

You may also answer the question at the end of the episodes for a chance to win #MachoGanado gift packs.

Kyle Echarri, Markus Paterson, and Moophs Collaborate in R&B Single "Hotel Room"

Kyle Echarri, Markus Paterson, and Moophs have just dropped an R&B collaboration entitled “Hotel Room,” a single about feeling lost, empty, and downcast.

Coupling Markus’ and Kyle’s soulful vocals with a neo-soul vibe from Moophs on production, “Hotel Room” perfectly encapsulates the gloom of coping with being left behind by a loved one.

I wrote ‘Hotel Room’ about a specific time in my life when I was trapped by vices and surrounded by the wrong crowd. Looking back on it, I’m proud of myself for getting out of that hole and out of it came a pretty alright sounding song,” Markus disclosed. “I think it’s the best time to release this song because I’m a responsible father now, and it’s a reminder of who I was, not who I am now.”

Kyle echoed Markus’ sentiment about the song being personal to him and said he wants to share it because of its relatability. He said, “It’s my first time releasing something that is this personal, and I feel like a lot of people go through these kinds of hard times.”

Meanwhile, song producer Moophs talked about how working with the two actor-singers was a breeze. The Tarsier Records label head said, “Markus wrote a song and sent me a voice note, I produced a beat around it, and Kyle penned a second verse and hopped on the track. Their songwriting chemistry together in the studio is magical.

One of Tarsier Records’ original class of artists in 2017, Markus has numerous releases under his belt with the label, including his “B-SIDE” EP, which has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify alone. Kyle, on the other hand, introduced his second full-length album, “New Views,” last year. Moophs has worked with Bugoy Drilon, Inigo Pascual, Russell Reyes, and other artists for various collabs in 2021.

Check out “Hotel Room” by Markus, Kyle Echarri and Moophs, out now on digital streaming platforms worldwide.

5 Ways to Stay Productive this Summer

It’s summertime! Many of us might be taking some time off this summer break from school or maybe even from work. While a lot will want to enjoy the downtime that the holidays bring, some might also want to keep their minds and wits sharp and continue being productive.

If you’re one of the proactive people who wants something to do while school is out, you’re in luck - here are a few ideas for to-do list items you can check off during all this free time:

1. Learn a new skill

Want to keep on improving yourself? Two or so months is enough for you to learn and practice a new life skill! Whether it’s crafting something with your hands or creating something with your mind, this summer’s a good a time as any to impress your friends with something you’ve learned while everyone’s at home. There are so many options for skills to learn online.

2. Learn a new language

Why not take your learning a step further and learn a new language? Being able to speak another language beyond your native tongue can come in pretty handy in the future, so it’s always a good idea to open yourself up to the world and learn a foreign language. Learning is more accessible than it’s ever been, so take advantage of this time to upgrade yourself.

3. Join a good cause

Do you feel strongly about saving the world and just making it a better place? If so, you can use this time to volunteer for a good cause. The world could always use as many concerned citizens as possible, so when you’ve got the time to give, it could go a long way in helping everyone who lives in it.

4. Make things you like

Perhaps you already have an arts and crafts skill that’s waiting to be used. If that’s the case, you can just express your creativity and keep making things that you like. You don’t have to do it for anyone else—just create things that make you happy and keep yourself busy during this break, while you wait for things to kick up again.

5. Organize things at home

Want to do something that’ll immediately affect you in a good way? There’s always one thing you can do at home - organize your things, whether it’s in your room or your workspace. Put things in their proper places, label what needs labeling, and generally keep your area neat. The cleanliness is going to boost your mood a lot, too!

No matter what you’ll get up to this summer, you can always get it done with the help of Brother machines and products! Print out the things you need for your learning and creative expression with a printer such as the DCP-T420W A4 Ink Tank Printer, which makes printing at home effortless with features such as plug-and-play, WiFi printing, and cost-effective ultra high-yield ink bottles.

For your organization needs, Brother label printers are the way to go, like the P-Touch Cube portable labelmaker that lets you create labels from the Design&Print mobile app that connects via Bluetooth. With Brother label printers, organizing your things can be super fun!

So when it’s time to get productive this summer, let Brother help you keep yourself busy and improve over the break! Head to your nearest authorized Brother dealer to pick up a reliable machine that works not only for the season, but for as long as you need it!
