What made Coleen Garcia finally agree to be Billy Crawford’s girlfriend?

Sinundo ko pa siya sa airport kasi kakarating lang niya galing States. Sabi niya, ‘Can you be my girlfriend?’ Sabi ko, ‘Okay’, pero nakailang tanong siya muna,” Garcia said.

“I just felt like asking again,” Crawford added.

Although their relationship has only become official recently, Garcia and Crawford have always been open about their feelings for each other.

Kasi it was like we were already there anyway and all that was missing was really the label. Pero ‘yung feelings naman, it’s been there naman,” Garcia said.

Asked why she finally said ‘yes’, Garcia said it was because Crawford gets along really well with her family.

“I think that’s what really matters to me also, that’s what I was waiting for. I really want him to get along with my family. Pero the fact na pati ‘yung pamilya namin, they get along, it’s really a big bonus,” she added.

“She knows exactly what I feel for her. I really also just want to be the best man I can be, learn from my mistakes and be there for her,” said Crawford.

Garcia also said she considers Crawford as a best friend.

“I love you,” Crawford said, to which Garcia replied, “I love you too.” (MNS)

Veteran actress Mylene Dizon finally admitted her relationship with the former PBA player Jason Webb.

The former “Mira Bella” actress revealed that she and the San Mig Coffee assistant coach have been together for almost one year already.

Jason Webb was previously married to the TV-host Claudine Trillo, whom he had two daughters with, while Mylene Dizon has also two children with her former partner actor Paolo Paraiso.

Mylene said she is in good terms with the father of her kids, adding that they often communicate to each other to discuss matters regarding their children.

The 29-year-old actress said that they needed to maintain a good relationship since that would benefit their two children Tomas and Lucas.

My anak kami, kailangan naming magkaibigan, kailangan namin mag agree and mag disagree on certain things because we are trying to raise children,” she said.

Mylene started her career in the country’s leading network ABS-CBN as a member of Star Magic in 1996. She also appears in several series and the most recent is the hit but now defunct fantasy series “Mira Bella”.

Jason Webb began his basketball career in 1997 playing for Sta. Lucia. He is now the head coach of San Mig Super Coffee Mixers, who won the 2014 Governors’ cup.

Meanwhile, Mylene Dizon is set to star in the “Cinemelaya” film festival entry “Marikina”. (MNS)

No contradiction between PNoy’s SONA claim, self-rated poverty poll –Lacierda

MANILA (Mabuhay) — President Benigno Aquino III’s claim on poverty reduction in his fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) did not contradict a recent poll showing that more Filipinos consider themselves poor, a Palace official said Tuesday.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Aquino’s statement on poverty in his SONA relied on “empirical data,” while the Social Weather Stations (SWS) self-rated poverty survey was based on perception.

“It’s not a contradiction. In the survey, you self-rate yourself, and we respect that… Here we have empirical data that poverty incidence was reduced by three percent,” Lacierda said.

Asked why government’s poverty reduction figures did not translate to more Filipinos perceiving a better quality of life, Lacierda said poll results depend on how the survey was conducted.

In his speech before Congress members on Monday, Aquino cited National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) data showing a decrease in poverty incidence from 27.9 percent during the first semester of 2012, to 24.9 percent in 2013.

“Ang three percentage points pong ito ay katumbas ng halos 2.5 milyon na Pilipinong nakaalpas na sa poverty line. Totoo namang dapat pagtuunan ng masusing pansin ang pinakamahihirap sa lipunan,” Aquino said in his penultimate SONA.

The NEDA earlier said that reduced poverty during the first half of 2013 was a result of the Philippine economy’s “remarkable growth” and the government’s anti-poverty measures.

Results of an SWS survey released hours before Aquino’s SONA however revealed that around 500,000 more Filipino families consider themselves poor during the second quarter of 2014.

Meanwhile, SWS data on self-rated poverty during the period Aquino was referring to in his fifth SONA somehow affirm the President’s claim. According to the survey firm, self-rated poverty decreased from 51 percent in May 2012 to 49 percent in June 2013.

Still, Lacierda maintained that the administration cannot wipe out poverty in the country overnight.

“Just for a bit of a context, you don’t eradicate poverty in three to six years. In China, it took them a decade. It takes generations,” he said.

Lacierda said the government has already put in place “massive, direct interventions” to help improve lives of poor Filipinos. (MNS)

CGames: Boxing chiefs to probe headguard scrapping
[No Comment | 2 views]

By Alistair Watson

2014_Commonwealth_Games_Logo.svgGLASGOW, July 31, 2014 (AFP) – The International Boxing Association says it will carry out a detailed study of the impact of scrapping headguards for amateur contests following the conclusion of the Commonwealth Games.

It follows a call from Australian boxer Daniel Lewis for the immediate return of the safety gear after a failed medical check ruled him out of his welterweight quarter-final on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old suffered a badly cut eye in his win against Nigeria’s Kehinde Ademuyiwa on Monday.

The wound failed to sufficiently heal in time for him to meet Mandeep Jangra of India, who was given a walkover into the semi-finals.

A growing number of cut head injuries have resulted from male boxers stepping into the ring without head protection after AIBA changed their rules last year.

AIBA vice-president Dr Abdellah Bessalem from Algeria said his organisation was aware of the concerns and would address them after the Games.

“We are looking at the number of cuts and after our study we will prepare our report,” the Commonwealth Games tournament supervisor said.

“But we have to remember that without headguards the number of concussion injuries suffered by boxers has gone down.”

Following his withdrawal on Wednesday morning Lewis immediately took to social media to vent his frustration at having his medal hopes brought to an abrupt halt.

He wrote: “For all these people debating about headgear for amateurs, bring the headgear back 100 per cent.

“My journey is over. Got up at 6am this morning to lose weight. I made it and was ready to go to war only to be told by the doctor my journey is over. They won’t let me fight with the cut.

“I had two fights, two comfortable wins with one TKO and a stupid elbow ruins it all.

“My mum and dad paid to fly to the other side of the world to watch me win gold.

“The past 10 weeks I’ve been away from everyone putting in the hard work, all for an elbow to ruin my dream.”

This is the second injury setback to have ended Lewis’ hopes of boxing glory. Two years ago he broke his jaw in the Australian boxing team trials for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Australia media manager Ian Hanson said: “Daniel is bitterly disappointed. He came here to win a gold medal and, on top of his ill-fated Olympic preparations, this is a further blow to him. But he is a strong character and we are sure he’ll be back to fight another day.”

‘Framily’ vacations billed as way to save your marriage

(Relaxnews) – Like glamping, staycations and voluntourism, the travel industry is seizing on another word mash-up to carve up a new market: “framily.” And to coincide with the UN-designed International Day of Friendship July 30, travel agency Thomas Cook has released the results of a new survey to promote the concept of girlfriend getaways and buddy vacations as a way of strengthening marriage.

The relationship between the two could be construed as a bit of a stretch. In a poll of 2,000 Brits, one-third of respondents claimed that taking a vacation with a close friend helped or even “saved” their marriage.

And only 40 percent said they missed their other half while they were away.

“We believe that the rise in holidays with friends is being driven by another trend, the increasing importance of friendship,” said consultant and futurologist William Higham in a statement.

“Today, more and more people have a close group of friends that they consider to be a surrogate family: a ‘Framily.’”

The growing popularity of girlfriend getaways and boys’ only vacations are described as a push against the increasing dominance of technology in our lives, and the renewed appreciation for human interaction and bonding.

Framily vacations with friends who are like family can also fulfil needs where partners can’t, he added.

The survey results showed that the most popular type of friend vacation is a city sightseeing break (17 percent) followed by a beach holiday (15 percent).

Nearly a quarter (23 percent) said they “get up to no good” while vacationing sans partner, 40 percent of whom admitted to having cheated on their partner.

The most mischievous age group is the 18-24-year-old.

Meanwhile, if the term sounds familiar, that’s because the travel industry is borrowing it from a Sprint marketing campaign, which uses the term to mean family and friends.
