Are you fed up with the tele-novelas in channels here and there? Are you still challenged to guess the plot of each of those shows who are not anymore showing unique story-lines?
If you answer yes to both questions, I feel for you!
Would you want to change your viewing practices? In my case, if I have time, to sit in the family room and take command of the remote control, I go to lifestyle shows which give me more ideas on how to make myself better in terms of my look and mindset. I somehow veer away from tear-jerking shows, which just makes my eyes all puffy and makes me either angry to the villain or depressed with the outcome of the show. It is such a waste of time. Don’t you want to be entertained while you learn interesting stuff from fascinating people in the society and discover new trends and places of interests without burning holes in your pockets. Or how about get tricks and tips in being fashionable and up to the trend when comes to gadgets and lifestyle without the celebrities pushing for luxurious brands they carry, just to be “in.”
If you say, “wala namang ganyang show!” Well, there is!
It’s More Fun with Philip: Ang Lifestyle Show ng Bayan!
It is visually appealing, culturally enriching, and gastronomically appetizing with the different segments in every episode such as Bentang Bago, a showcase of the hippest trends, newest dining options, chill spots, fitness forays, and other fab finds in the metro. It is more interactive as the host gives the viewers a chance to sample the featured items by simply tweeting, sharing their comments on social media or texting.
Napasubo Ka! Is a segment where people from different walks of life would personally try the featured products or services, while Ang Hamon poses a daring challenge to Philip, may it be doing odd jobs or finishing a specific task.
Segments like Galaw-galaw and Kuwentuhang Kumot are more intimate, where a spill-all interview with the guest co-host is done under the blanket with the slogan: Iba ang kwentuhan sa loob ng kumot.
Even the bumper’s segments are hilariously smart, like I Saw the Sign, Whatchathink? (Asking passersby on their thoughts about trivial questions), Ano Kaya Kung… (Features short and snappy challenges that we usually think about but never tried), and Weblog (discusses news bits on the online lifestyle source, http://www.StyleRPA.com, of which Philip Abadicio is editor-in-chief).
How exciting, right?
Now on its second season, It’s More Fun with Philip: Ang Lifestyle Show ng Bayan! will air its initial telecast on July 28, 2013, Sunday, 9:30 pm, on TV5’s news channel, Aksyon TV (with a replay every Tuesday, 9:30 pm and Saturday, 5 pm).
