“If you love someone, you say it, right then, out loud.
Otherwise, the moment just passes you by”

On February 28 (which happened to be my birthday thank you very much haha), we were treated to a very candid interview with the real life couple James Reid and Nadine 
Lustre (JaDine), giving us an insight on how their relationship blossomed from being a manufactured love team to a real life couple.

Truth to be told, there are no other local love teams out there that gave me this strong desire to fangirl. It helps that they are pleasing to look at but the sincerity that James and Nadine exudes is the reason why I’m very much invested in their relationship. I beg to disagree with everyone who’s doubting them.

First of all, Nadine isn’t a fool to get herself used by promotional tactics alone. She respects herself so much that there’s no chance she would agree to anything like this for promotions only. Secondly, James, bless his heart for he cannot be restricted by his management to do what he wants to do. For him, professing his love is liberating, felt so free, very satisfying. It was just the right thing to do as Nadine is special. Even as just friends, he knew that she is extraordinarily uniquely special. Lastly, come on people, those longing looks and all the intense kisses of our golden boy aren’t for promotion only.

James and Nadine have been very honest about the real score between them since the start. And to see their relationship gradually change status is sort of a fairy tale in itself. Now, everybody believes in forever, no pun intended, but singing their duet song Bahala Na makes a lot more sense these days.

Anywho, I hope you’ll like watching this fan made video. My face hurts from smiling while watching their interview. Re-watching it (yes I watched it again to get the transcript) didn’t change my child like fangirling. It did reinforce my feeling that JaDine’s love story is an inspiration.




“Your love is my anchor, your trust is my strength, you make me whole and make my life complete, I will give you all my love from now until the eternity ends”

It’s a happy ever after for our couple Clark and Leah. It was an emotional roller coaster from start to end. But, everything that they have learned individually and together as a couple made them realize that they are far stronger and happier when they have each other. Their love story was one for the books.

The news about the passing of Director Wenn Deramas in the morning of Feb 29 left everyone shocked and heartbroken. Direk Wenn went to the hospital at 2AM to see her sister who was rushed to the hospital. He suffered a heart attack upon learning that his sister died according to the article published in Inquirer.net.

Direk Wenn’s last film was Beauty and the Bestie, the highest grossing Filipino film of all time which earned a whopping PHP526M last December.

The well loved director had a long list of TV series and movies that Filipinos would recognize. He was a great lost and will be surely missed. For a full list of his credentials, go to Wenn Deramas Wikipedia

My prayers to his family and friends. Thank you Direk for making us laugh and cry with your movies.

The #CarrotMan of the Philippines

Posted: 02/28/2016 by Asian Ties in Philippines

This afternoon, I found myself reading an article about the newest social media sensation who hails from Mt. Province, Philippines. His name is Jeyrick Sigmaton whose photos uploaded by Edwina Bandong on her Facebook account instantly got famous due to his good looks. He is labelled as the Carrot Man as he was photographed carrying carrots after harvesting them.

Jeyrick is a farmer in Mt. Province, the eldest of seven siblings and has been helping out his family to earn money for everyday living.

GMA-7, a giant TV network in the Philippines, had featured him in one of their shows.

With his good looks and instant popularity, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’ll soon get an offer from TV networks. He seemed charming and very well grounded so I hope that he will not get suck into the limelight too much.


“I’m a fool for not realizing this sooner. But, I love you. I love you with all my heart. And I’m ready to fight for our love. Would you fight it with me, for the nth time?

Leah planned to go home to Manila for a quick visit for her nephew’s baptism but she had the biggest surprise of her life when Simon announced that she got a promotion as the Executive Creative Director of ArtMart in Manila. This would mean that she will be going home for good. This also meant for the first time in 2 years that the partners will be separated. Simon, bless his heart, let go of the person who made him fall in love again so that she could be happy. Now, that’s true love.

On this trip, Leah also planned to tell Clark how she truly feels. She is now ready to fight for Clark. Will she be late? Can Clark and Leah truly find their forever?

Reality Bites. Ouch.

Leah’s initial presentation for Woodland’s campaign didn’t go well so she had resort to getting to know more about Clark, the artist. As it turned out, Clark wasn’t too friendly with Leah. Clark’s painful past was coming out and Leah was being slap with reality. The talk about their divorce came up in between interviews. This produced a lot of hilarious moments but also it was a sad reality that both are misinterpreting each other’s lives. Will Clark and Leah ever get a break from bringing up about their past?

“Tulak ng bibig, kabig ng dibdib”

Clark was introduced as ArtMart’s newest client. Unbeknownst to everyone, it was Tita Jack who made this reunion happen. Clark and Leah’s interactions since their first meeting have been cordial until the discussion about divorce came about. Clark was more hurt to hear it from Leah but the latter was obviously sad when Clark agreed to it. Will Clark and Leah realize what they need is mend their broken hearts by talking about the past and not ending it with a divorce?

AsianPopTies browses through the pages of Yes Magazine featuring James Reid and Nadine Lustre also known as JaDine to their fans. This magazine was released in February, 2016. Enjoy watching!


James Reid and Nadine Lustre (JaDine as fans call them) have finally admitted to being a couple in real life. The admission came after James announced his love for Nadine before closing out their JaDine Love concert held in Araneta on Feb 20, 2016. Ten thousand fans witnessed the special affair and how James nervously but sweetly said his “I Love You” to his girl. Nadine couldn’t contain her emotions, relied on the good ol’ hug as a response to her boyfriend’s pronouncement.

After 2 years of partnership as a “love team”, their story had evolved from #TeamReel to #TeamReal. It was an inspiration and definitely worth to be told.
