Marco Gumabao and Miles Ocampo Spotted Dating

Teen actress Miles Ocampo was spotted with “LUV U” co-star Marco Gumabao having a leisurely walk at a mall in Manila. The two were seen smiling from ear to ear while holding each other’s hands.

It was bright and sunny outside, far from the gloomy weather the past weeks so we thought, why not enjoy a leisurely walk?” Miles said. When asked if it was a date, the teen star admitted that it was indeed a date. “It was a date between Camille and JB, our characters in LUV U.”

Maybe in the future we’ll have a more private date, away from cameras. Who knows?” Miles said laughing.

Meanwhile on “LUV U”, Camille (Miles) and JB (Marco) decided that it’s time for them to bond together as lovers so they will go to a nearby mall for a date without Lola Paula (Joy Viado) knowing. Lola Paula, who doesn’t approve of their relationship will learn about this date and will follow the two love birds.

Who told Lola Paula about Camille and JB’s date? What will Lola Paula do once she sees them? Find out on “LUV U” this Sunday (September 2) after “ASAP 2012” on ABS-CBN.

Coco Martin ‘MMK’ Kamao Episode Bags Special Prize in Seoul International Drama Awards

Asia’s longest-running drama anthology, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” recently earned international recognitions from two of the most coveted award-giving bodies for television namely Seoul International Drama Awards 2012 and Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) Prize.

ABS-CBN’s “MMK: Kamao” episode (with international title “Remembering: Fist”) topbilled by multi-awarded actor Coco Martin, bagged the special prize in the recently concluded 7th Seoul International Drama Awards.

According to “MMK” business unit head Malou Santos, the latest recognition from Seoul International Drama Awards is an accolade they dedicate to the Filipino people whose inspiring tales are immortalized in the two-decade-old drama anthology.

We share this honor to the Filipino people who continue to awe us with their stories of hope and resilience,” shared Malou. “This is also a tribute not only to the artistry of the people behind ‘MMK’ but more so to the nobility and strength of the ordinary people whose life stories inspire us the most.”

Led by highly acclaimed director Dado Lumibao, the episode was based from a true story of a war freak underground boxer named Ramon (Coco) who experienced pain in many forms since childhood. Together with Coco in “MMK: Kamao” are Jodi Sta. Maria, Philip Nolasco, BJ Forbes, Celine Lim, Veyda Innoval, Michael Roy Jornales, Carlos Morales, Levi Ignacio, Andrei Garcia, Aleck Bovick, and Mike Lloren. It was researched by Alex Martin and written by Benson Logronio.

Coco’s internationally-acclaimed “MMK: Kamao” episode will be aired again on ABS-CBN this Saturday (September 1) after “Wansapanataym.”

Internet Sensation Kimpoy Feliciano Invades the Music Scene

Four years ago, online heartthrob Kimpoy Feliciano’s family decided to migrate to Dunedin, New Zealand. Just like any kid in his situation then, he had no choice but to oblige in his family’s decision to move to a new place, away from his other family, friends, and classmates.

Luckily, social media has bridged the gap between Kimpoy and his loved ones in Manila and Bulacan. Through sites like Tumblr, Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter, he has reconnected himself to the Philippines without being physically present in the country.

It was very hard for me when my family decided to move to Dunedin. I had to leave everyone behind. When we left for Dunedin, it was one of the saddest days in my life,” says the 19-year-old Kimpoy, who is currently a second year Business Management Student in University of Otago. “Who would have known that because of that sadness, I would connect to more people in the Philippines? Talagang everything happens for a reason and I am blessed that I have friends from everywhere now. Talagang no boundaries.

Being the ever-playful Kimpoy, his antics did not only capture the appreciation of his friends, it also earned him more Filipino friends.

The support of these new friends made Kimpoy one of the most influential Filipinos on Twitter, according to social media analytics site He ranked third in the survey, where he is the lone non-TV star.

He also bagged the 2012 Globe Tatt Awards’ Thought Mover Award for his nuggets of wisdom.

He was adjudged number one Youtube Leader in the 4th Annual Shorty Awards, besting other local and international celebrities. The awarding was held in New York, USA.

It is really heartwarming to know that I have developed these friendships. Amazing po talaga how internet can bridge the gaps between people from different locations,” adds Kimpoy. “I really feel blessed to have everyone supporting me.”

Aside from his activities online, Kimpoy also became part of the New Zealand cast of the musical Miss Saigon.

I am really a dancer, more than a singer, but I can also sing,” clarifies Kimpoy. “Friends know I love to sing and dance,”

Kimpoy is on a 10-day stint in Manila. He is recording an album for Universal Records, which is Kimpoy’s way of thanking all his friends for their love and support.

He is also scheduled to guest on different shows.
