Who: Singer Songwriter Didi Benami

What: The dark, exquisite brand new song, “Gasoline”

Where: now available on iTunes and Amazon as digital downloads.

When: release date, May 23rd, 2012

Music collaboration: Co-writers Justin Gray and Chris Seefried

Didi is recently heard on: Keaton Simon’s track “If I Hadn’t Forgotten”

Why you should buy: “There is a longing tenderness in Didi Benami’s voice that is both intriguing and appealing. This is a bittersweet heartbreak song. Neither mushy nor sappy, just right. Juxtaposed with the nostalgic sound are the lyrics confronting a relationship that is in limbo. While the theme may be edgy, the track is easy on the ears, could very well play on repeat or mixed in your favorite playlist. Didi is a star! Her artistry and dedication to her craft is inspiring. It is palpable in this song!” via Amazon

“The Bourne Legacy” in a 45-day shoot in the Philippines; Film release set for Summer 2012
comment 3 Comments January 30, 2012 – 2:25 am

The hit franchise known for trotting around the globe, from France and Italy to India and Morocco, is adding a new location to its roster: the Philippines. Universal Pictures’ “The Bourne Legacy,” the fourth movie based on the Robert Ludlum novels, started filming in Manila, the country’s capital, two weeks ago.

Scheduled to be released in theaters Aug. 3, the latest installment in the spy series was written and is being directed by Tony Gilroy — who penned the first three films -– and will be the first without Matt Damon playing the title role. Bourne is not a character in the new movie. Jeremy Renner, instead, will portray an agent in the same line of business as Bourne, with Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton co-starring.

The production, which has a budget of more than $100 million, will spend about 45 days in the Philippines. Scenes have already been shot in New York and Alberta, Canada, since filming began last September.

Sinigang For the Soul

This is both a mixed bag and a personal blog, not a food blog; although I may talk about food sometimes! :-) I am a Filipina Expat living in the United States. The pages here are random musings of love and hate, rants and raves and anything in between. Sinigang is a metaphor to signify all my favorites in life; all that interests me (or not!).

The rotating header shows original images of the Philippine Islands then and now; "bringing back memories of scenic greens, warm sun, blue waters, great friends and the solace of home..."
