Vincent Quilet, more popularly known as Vincent Daffalong, is considered one of the pioneers of Philippine rap. Given the distinct shape of his nose, Vincent was eventually called Daffalong, a term coined from the Filipino phrase dapa ang ilong (flat-nosed).

Blessed with a talent for songwriting, Vincent started out by sending his compositions to recording companies. His perseverance was soon rewarded, and his skills in singing and rapping were likewise discovered. Among the songs he popularized are Mahiwagang Nunal, Ispraken Delight and Machoching. Now that his family has left him, how is life now for Vincent?

Janet Lim-Napoles finally surrenders!

Janet Lim-Napoles ended her 14 day search of the government forces and services as she voluntarily surrendered to President Noynoy Aquino, on the night of Wednesday, August 28, 2013!



Fearing for her life, fugitive Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged brains behind the P10 billion pork barrel scam, surrendered to President Benigno Aquino in Camp Crame Wednesday night, Malacañang announced.

“At 9:37 p.m. on August 28, Janet Napoles surrendered to President Aquino,” Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said in a statement.


“The President turned her over to the custody of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and Philippine National Police Director-General Alan Purisima for processing and booking,” Lacierda said.


The move pre-empted the National Bureau of Investigation Special Task Force that earlier got a hot tip on the Napoles’ whereabouts and was on its way to serve her warrant of arrest.

Napoles specifically asked through her lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, that she be brought to Camp Crame and not to the NBI.

Aquino motored to the PNP national headquarters to accept the surrender of  Napoles and turned her over to Roxas.


Kim Chiu on the next BF: “Hindi ko naman itatago, at tsaka na sa tamang edad na ako.”!

Kim Chiu’s last relationship was with Gerald Anderson, that ended in 2010. Up to now she is still loveless even though her love interest in television and movies, Xian Lim is said to be close to her heart. She still declares herself loveless and is ready for a new relationship!


Kim said that she is taking her time for the new love to come:

“Darating din tayo diyan. Hindi naman kailangan sapilitan, kusa niyo pong malalaman kung sinuman po ang nagpapatibok ng puso ko. Hindi ko naman itatago, at tsaka na sa tamang edad na ako.”

Although she misses having a boyfriend:

“It takes time know someone para tumanggal ‘yung relationship. Kasi pag mabilisan, gano’n din, mabilisan, para ka lang nagpalit ng damit. ‘Ay, ayoko na dito,’ gano’n.”

On screen partner Xian Lim:

“Thank you kasi nandiyan po siya para sa akin. Pero wala naman pong bakuran effect. Wala naman po, wala naman pong gano’n siguro.”

Does she wish for the love to come?

“Huwag mo na i-wish, kasi minsan ‘yung wish mo mali eh. Hayaan mo na ‘yung destiny ‘yung magsabi about love.”

10 Things you should know about One Direction!

One Direction made a stop in New York City for the press junket of their “This Is Us” 3D movie and revealed about their up-coming album and dating deal-breakers!


See below for the top 10 things we learned from the NYC event this weekend.

1. They were nervous about making “This Is Us.”

When the band first saw the final cut of the movie, Harry described it as “nerve-wracking.”

He said, “When you put yourself out there — anything like that — if it’s a song — you want people to like it. It makes you feel vulnerable, I think, when you put yourself out there that much, so it was exciting.”

The boys talked about how in order to make the best documentary, they didn’t want to place any restrictions on filming.

“The only way to make the best documentary is to give the producer, the director and the cameras access to all areas … which is exactly what we wanted to do,” explained Niall. “And, as Harry said, you’re putting yourself in quite a vulnerable position by doing that. But that’s the only way to make it. So that’s what we did.”

2. They’re not the kind of pranksters you think they are.

Any Directioner knows that the guys of 1D are big pranksters, but contrary to popular belief, they really don’t prank each other.

“Everyone always thinks that we’re really pranksters. But we prank everyone that works with us like our team and stuff like that,” clarified Niall. “We like stealing stuff. We’re real-life criminals. We steal golf carts, forklifts.”

“Our musicians that play in the band for us, we once — I think we were in Madrid — taped up their door so they couldn’t get in the dressing room,” remembered Harry.

3. They have some interesting dating dealbreakers.

For Niall, the dealbreaker is simple: “A ridiculous laugh.”

But Harry is a bit more specific.

“I think a first date is just, be early. Give like a 15-minute window. Don’t be late.” said Harry. “And if a girl ever spits… you know when you’re going down the street and you see someone spit and you’re like, ‘That’s gross.'”

4. They make an effort to do things that make them feel “normal.”

Niall said: “I like going to soccer matches because that’s what I used to do before all this. I also like going to watch other people’s gigs, like last night we went to go see John Mayer.”

5. Liam’s personal mantra comes from his mom.

“What my mom always said to me was, ‘Just do your best that’s the best you can do’ and I do believe that,” said Liam. “It’s definitely true.”

6. Harry has a low-key family life.

“I think the best thing, every time I go home, is that I just fall asleep on my cell phone,” said Harry. “I’ll just watch TV with my family and fall asleep. I think it’s just nice to fall asleep and know you don’t have an alarm set on your phone.”

7. They still get surprised when fans do crazy things.

“Last week, I was at a music festival and I was walking around with my friends and this girl jumped on my back to get my attention,” said Niall. “All she wanted was a picture but she decided she was going to go for a piggyback ride, too.”

8. To them, the most shocking parts of “This Is Us” were the interviews with their families.

“For me, my mom actually says I’ve only been back to Doncaster [my hometown] five times. I didn’t realize that it was as little as that,” said Louis. “It’s quite shocking to see, but it’s also nice to see — to hear all of our families thoughts and how similar they all are.”

9. The third album was their most challenging — but not for the reasons you probably think.

“I don’t think the songwriting has been the hardest part so far. I think in terms of the way we record it being on the road and being on the rush — that was the hardest part,” said Liam. “But to be fair, writing songs seems to become quite easy — not in an arrogant way, but they seem to happen quite naturally and they came together, which was good for us because we didn’t have a lot of time.”

“I think we’ve been lucky that the people who’ve agreed to write with us have had loads of experience — so it’s been great to be in the room with these people and learn from them and try and get better,” added Louis. “I feel like we’ve kind of progressed a little bit and we’re proud of this album.”

10. Zayn has decided how he is going to pick hisbest man.

“We decided that there will be a fight to the death,” confirmed Zayn.

“Or rock, paper, scissors,” added Liam.

And if the boys show up with bruises and black eyes to the wedding?

“If they were to rock that, then that’s cool,” said Zayn.
