Leave a comment

The prime time TV program Nasaan Ka Elisa, which airs every weekdays after My Binondo Girl, is a crime-drama and suspense-thriller series. The pilot episode of Nasaan Ka Elisa? immediately presented a series of conflicts after the disappearance of the leading character Elisa Altamira.

An investigation follows after Elisa’s disappearance. The weary, rich parents of the missing daughter seek the help of investigators.

A couple of people have been questioned by authorities who are believed to have been with Elisa prior to her disappearance. As part of the investigation, authorities include the immediate family members in their list of people to be questioned.

The lead character Elisa Altamira is being portrayed by Melissa Ricks. This TV lead role could be a big break for Melissa as she plays the lead star in this TV series Nasaan Ka Elisa? Her efforts have finally paid off through this TV project which focuses on her character as Elisa.

It’s good to see Melissa invading into a more matured role such as her character in this TV series. This is a big break for her to showcase her versatility as an actress.

Meanwhile, we have seen Melissa played dramatic and serious roles on TV before but we hope to see more of Melissa as a lead star of this prime time series. We hope to see Melissa pull it off playing her character as Elisa.

There is still much to unveil in this TV series Nasaan Ka Elisa? The twists and turns of the story make it interesting to watch. The storyline itself makes viewers want to anticipate what will happen next as the story unfolds.

The feisty, sexy young actress Cristine Reyes invades on a captivating role in a movie entitled “No other Woman.” Cristine plays the role of a wife who battles up against her husband’s other woman portrayed by Anne Curtis.

Cristine made several TV shows in GMA 7 before she transferred to ABS-CBN where she exclusively became the Kapamilya’s newest member, and was given more exposures and starring roles.

Wish you were here by Avril

Leave a comment

I happened to hear this song, “Wish you were here” by Avril Lavigne, just now. The melody and lyrics of the song made me played this video a couple of times. I tried to listen to its lyrics, and the words were just plain and simple, casual but meaningful.

The lyrics speak about a girl who is in love, and how it weakens  her without her man by her side. I think there are lots of girls who can relate to this, and who simply like to say, “damn! damn! damn! what I’d do to have you here, I wish you were here.”

Avril seemed to have transformed into a more mature singer/performer in this video. The video itself focused on  facial expressions, and I think Avril pulled it off. It’s good that the video didn’t showcase the usual Avril Lavigne with a punky, rock star looks. However, in this video, the director could have thought of something different aside from the bathtub scene. I have already seen a lot of this scenario from other artists’ videos.

Here is the lyrics of the song entitled, “Wish you were here” by Avril Lavigne.

“Wish You Were Here”

I can be tough
I can be strong
But with you, it’s not like that at all

There’s a girl
who gives a shit
behind this wall
You’ve just walked through it

And I remember all those crazy things you said
You left them running through my head
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did
Didn’t think about it, just went with it
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here

Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
here, here, here
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
near, near, near
I wish you were here.

I love the way you are
It’s who I am, don’t have to try hard
We always say, say like it is
And the truth is that I really miss

All those crazy things you said
You left them running through my head
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did
Didn’t think about it, just went with it
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here

[Chorus:]
Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
here, here, here
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
near, near, near
I wish you were here.

[Bridge:]
No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go

(let go let go let go let go)

No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go

(let go let go let go let go let go let go let go)

Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
here, here, here
I wish you were here (I wish you were)
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
near, near, near
I wish you were here.

Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
here, here, here
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
near, near, near
I wish you were here.
