H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto

December 1, 2012 Leave a comment

His Excellency, The Honorable Enrique Peña Nieto, is the new president of MEXICO. Today is his first day in office.

Let’s see what will happen to Mexico under his administration. Will he be able to combat/minimize the drug cartel wars and the violence brought about by these wars? I hope so.

What excites me to see is the role of his wife in leading the country to a peaceful Mexico.  Angelica Rivera, Mexico’s new first lady, is a former Mexican telenovela actress.  I remember watching her telenovela “LA DUEÑA (1995)” in RPN 9 where she played the role of Regina Villarreal as well as in the telenovela “HURACAN”, which I watched in TVE (Television Española) in cable TV.  Take note: I watched it in Spanish language without subtitles (sin subtitulos).

Good luck to the new president of the United Mexican States (the full name of Mexico) and I hope to read more positive news about my dream country destination in the coming years.  I also look forward to Angelica Rivera’s active participation in implementing development projects.  As the saying goes, behind a successful man is a strong woman. 

 

Felicidades y lo mejor por mi MEXICO,

A Woman’s Word / Palabra De Mujer

May 12, 2012 1 comment

Thanks to Skycable for bringing back Mexican telenovelas in our tv screens through the Telenovela Channel (where telenovelas produced by Televisa are exclusively shown).  I’m just so happy that I returned to my previous cable subscriber (just this month).  Now, I’d rather stay at home during weekends to catch up and watch back-to-back episodes of my current favorite telenovela, A Woman’s Word / Palabra de Mujer (starring Edith Gonzalez, Yadhira Carrillo, Ludwika Paleta, and Lidia Avila).  I so like the local version of the theme song of Palabra de Mujer.  The original song is entitled “ELLA” and it was Spanish singer BEBE who sang the theme song.  Telenovela Channel replaced the original theme song with “KAYA KO” by Elke Saison.  The story of “A Woman’s Word” revolves around the lives of four different women: Vanessa, Fernanda, Paulina, and Matilde.

 

Thanks Telenovela Channel for showing “Palabra de Mujer” (1997) in the Philippines and more power to TELEVISA!

Aeromexico

February 18, 2012 Leave a comment

My visit at this year’s travel expo was so worth it! Why? Because AEROMEXICO was one of the exhibitors at the event. I got free promotional materials and I was briefed by a representative from Aeromexico on requirements when traveling to Mexico.  Finally, I was informed in simple terms on what to do if I plan to visit my dream destination: MEXICO.  I’ll definitely prepare for my dream travel…. SOON.

ARROZ A LA CUBANA

February 9, 2012 Leave a comment

My new friends and I decided to have lunch date at Mexicali today.  I’m surprised that Mexicali is now serving “combo”, affordable meals.  Last night, I was listening to Gloria Estefan’s new album “MISS LITTLE HAVANA” and so I decided to order Arroz a la Cubana minus the egg.  Eggs trigger gallstones attack.  So, instead of the egg on top of the Mexican rice, I had it replaced with nacho chips.  Sadly, they didn’t give me complimentary salsa. =(
