  • 1. Sunshine Dizon and Clarisma Sison meet in court

    Actress Sunshine Dizon, her estranged husband Timothy Tan, and Clarisma Sison (in past news reports, she has been referred to as Clarissa) all met face-to-face at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (QC-RTC) last Wednesday, August 10. This was a preliminary investigation on the the Violation Against Women and their Children (VAWC) and concubinage charges Sunshine filed against Timothy. The meeting didn't last long, however. Timothy and Clarisma's camp asked for an extension until August 25 to submit their counter-affidavit in response to the charges. Sunshine addressed the press after the meeting: "You know what, honestly, homewreckers like her doesn’t need any reaction. I will not dignify her with anything because she’s too low for me." The mom-of-two revealed that she has met Clarisma several times, but it was all before she discovered the alleged affair. "I’m getting emotional because of the pain they caused on my children, not me anymore, kasi kaya ko naman. Pero yung sakit na dinaanan ng mga anak ko, 'yan ang walang kapatawaran," she said. Sunshine added that Timothy has been granted visitation rights to their kids.  (pep.ph)

    2. Xavier School bans Pokemon Go

    With the release of Pokémon Go in the country, kids and the kids-at-heart have been catching creatures on every street corner, mall or park. The craze has even forced the MMDA to issue safety guidelines. Not everyone is thrilled to be part of Pokémon Go. The Xavier School in Quezon City had to remind its students and faculty that it has a "no gaming" policy, and it will certainly not entertain outsiders who plan to look for Pokéstops. Yes, we have been told there are two Pokéstops on campus. (fhm.com.ph)

    3. M&M's releases Butterbeer flavor


    Here's another reason to love M&M's: they now have butterbeer-flavored chocolate! Well, sort of. M&M's new "Boo-tterscotch" flavor are white chocolate treats infused with an intense buterscotch flavor, making them taste similar to the famous drink from the Harry Potter series. It's non-alcoholic (in case you don't know). While M&M's did not explicitly say that the new flavor is in anyway connected--or should we say imported--from the "wizarding world," it has great timing because there's the new play Harry Potter and the Curse Child and the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will open in cinemas come November.

    4. New Chronicles of Narnia movie is in the works
    We're going back to the land of Narnia soon. Two-time Oscar nominee writer David Magee (Life of Pi and Finding Neverland) is writing a new movie to continue the stories Aslan and Prince Caspian. The Silver Chair will be adapted from the book of the same title and will follow the events of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Prince Caspian is now king and his son has gone missing, and Aslan sends Eustace Scrubb and schoolmate Jill Pope to find the prince. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian were produced by Disney and Walden Media, while Dawn Treader was solely produce by the latter. The Silver Chair will be the first Narnia film to be produced under The Mark Gordon Company. (hollywoodreporter.com)


    5. Report: Two-headed baby born in Indonesia

    Born at the Ibn Sina General Hospital in Indonesia, the baby was diagnosed with Dicephalic Parapagus, a rare form of partial twinning where there are two heads side by side attached to one torse. The baby reportedly suffered from respiratory failure when she was born and is currently in an incubator. Doctors have attached a heart and respiratory monitor to be able to keep a closer watch on her health. Since the two heads share one set of organs and one heart, there's little to no chance of separating the two. The extremely rare case is thought to be brought on during the early stages of pregnancy as a result of genetic mutation. (huffingtonpost.co.uk)
