Highlights and Behind-the-scenes of Sunday PinaSaya's 2nd Year Anniversary Special

For the longest time, our Sunday noontime TV experience is all about musical variety shows where we witness a showdown of vocal prowess and admire battles on the dance floor. With a few experimenting on changing the format, GMA obviously struggled in the competition. And it was only until two years ago when the network decided to go against what we've all been used to and introduced a new platform that changed our Sunday afternoon. It was definitely a brave change but the results pretty much shows that it is indeed a brilliant move. 


Sunday PinaSaya is a noontime comedy-variety show that airs in GMA Network every Sunday. The show features some of Kapuso's popular names and comedians including Marian Rivera, Ai-ai de las Alas, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, Julie Anne San Jose, Gabbi Garcia, Ruru Madrid, Valeen Montenegro, Gladys Guevarra, Lovely Abella, Andre Paras, Jerald Napoles, Kim Last, Boobsie Wonderland, Pekto, Joey Paras and Atak.




Last weekend, we got a chance to watch the show's second year anniversary special live. It's really nice to see all the action behind the cameras - how the scenes are being set up, artists rehearsing and reviewing their scripts before going live, and goofing along with the casts during commercial gaps. When you get to see all these, you'll just appreciate the efforts given by everyone who does everything to provide us entertainment.



The show did their usual comedy skits, but what surprised me is the YaKapAn segment where the leads, Alden Richards, Ruru Madrid, and Ai-ai de las Alas, went on an intense acting showdown. I honestly didn't know that the show isn't just all about comedy. And this segment also garnered praises from the netizens who have seen it.


Aiai de las Alas and Marian Rivera also showed their versatility in acting through the Aktingan na Pangmalakasan segment:


Julie Anne San Jose, together with Christian Bautista, Aicelle Santos, and Gian Magdangal, closed the show with their rendition of Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson's Symhony.



I was quite disappointed though because I didn't get to see Chuchay and Boobsie :( Hopefully, next time!


Here are some highlights during the show:

Coke Studio PH: Coca-Cola's Refreshing Take on OPM

Much more exciting surprises are yet to unfold as Coke officially launches the Coke Studio and partners with artists to come up with a collaboration you (may) have not seen before.

Coke Studio is actually a music TV show that aims to bring out the best of OPM by collaborating with Filipino artists of different genres.

Mossimo Fall 2017 features designs inspired by the War for the Planet of the Apes movie

Last night, we were able to witness the epic battle between man and apes as the latest installment of the Planet of the Apes movie franchise. The War for the Planet of the Apes is quite interesting as it focused on the revenge of the apes against man. As I was watching, I do not really know whose side to take until the movie is halfway towards the end. Though Colonel McCullough made sense in his purpose of brewing up a war against the incredibly intelligent apes, my sympathy still goes to the latter. The creators did a really good job in building up the story of both sides and it'll be up to you which side you'll choose. Oh, and introducing Bad Ape in the film made it more interesting and less dragging! His character added light amidst the war.

MossimoXPlanetOfTheApes: With Rod, Nate, Ruth, Gus, MJ, Rodel, and Duane

This movie screening is sponsored by Mossimo, one of the country's favorite casual wear brands, in partnership with FOX International. 


As the brand kicks off their Fall 2017 collection, Mossimo's latest apparel features designs inspired by the Planet of the Apes franchise. 

Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes is a celebration of our partnership with FOX International and the first of many in our planned series of collaborations with popular stylists and big name brands. With the Planet of the Apes franchise having created a cult following and being a box office success not only in Hollywood but around the world, we felt like the look and feel of the movie would greatly complement our upcoming Fall 2017 collection.
Alex Bautista, Mossimo’s VP for Product
The capsule collection features a line of comfy tees and pullovers, 100% cotton unisex tops, with eight graphic designs that continue to tell the tale of the ongoing battle between the humans and their primate counterparts. Poignant scenes and iconic, artful slogans from the movie are the highlights and will definitely catch the eyes of faithful Planet of the Apes fans and Mossimo aficionados alike.










The new Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes collection is now available on select Mossimo stores nationwide. The brand's Fall 2017 collection will also feature "Jungle Book" and "Re-volution" that brings a fun update to the safari-inspired clothing, including earthy tones, black camou, and fatigue prints that will complete your trendy and high street look.
