Vanessa Hudgens Coffee Break

September 23, 2007 on 3:27 am | In Pinay Actress | 6 Comments Vanessa Hudgens Coffee Break

Vanessa Hudgens takes a coffee break while shopping in Santa Monica and has some fun with the papparazzi. Crazy paparazzi take so many pictures… all she’s doing is getting out of a car, ordering coffee, waiting for it and leaving (and being hugged by some random fan in the process) and theres 36 photos of her doing it (below). Damn that’s crazy. Just imagine if you were at a coffee place… say Starbucks and you were just hounded with photographers… you would probably go crazy. But in all 36 photos below, Vanessa is just having fun on her coffee hit.

While we check out Vanessa Hudgens buying some coffee on her break, we might as well learn something here about coffee. Coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are roasted at temperatures around 200 °C (392 °F), during which the sugars in the bean caramelize, the bean changes color, and flavor develops. The beans are roasted to a light, medium, or dark brown color, depending on the desired flavor. The health effects of coffee are disputed, and many studies have examined the relationship between coffee consumption and certain medical conditions. Studies have suggested that the consumption of coffee lowers the risk of certain diseases but may have negative effects as well, especially when excessive. The current opinion consensus of medical experts is that moderate coffee consumption is not a health concern. Weird facts about coffee drinking: A contemporary example of coffee prohibition can be found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a religion with over 13 million followers worldwide, which calls for complete coffee abstinence. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints claims that it is both physically and spiritually unhealthy to consume coffee. This comes from the Mormon doctrine of health, given in 1833 by Mormon founder Joseph Smith, in a revelation called the Word of Wisdom. It does not identify coffee by name, but includes the statement that “hot drinks are not for the belly”, which has been interpreted to forbid both coffee and tea. That’s it for Vanessa’s coffee break - now back to work. Continue reading Vanessa Hudgens Coffee Break…

Bambi Francisco Business Entrepreneur

September 17, 2007 on 8:18 pm | In Pinay Entrepreneurs | Add Your Comment Bambi Francisco

Putting all those Pinay Models, Actresses and celebrities, we have our first Filipina business entrepreneur to feature on PinayPix. Bambi Francisco is an Internet entrepreneur, she recently launched an internet video startup company called Vator which focuses on elevator pitches. She also maintains a blog. Why did she start Vator? This is what Bambi says: “ began as a little garage project that I started last year to help me vet startups’ pitches and to give exposure to those I’d invariably overlook as a columnist.

“I mentioned the idea to Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal and manager of the $2 billion hedge fund Clarium Capital. Peter saw value in such a vetting mechanism, and he asked if he could invest. I told Peter that it was just an experiment at the time. But if the platform reached 50 videos, then perhaps it was worth investing in. Peter currently owns less than 5%. This was the genesis of, whose name is short for “innovator” or “elevator” (as in “elevator pitch”), and which today is a very small, non-revenue-generating asset.”

Bambi Francisco is a former syndicated columnist and correspondent for Dow Jones MarketWatch. She covered Internet trends and investments across the public and private sectors. Her newsletter subscriber base reached more than 400,000 subscribers. She started her career at MarketWatch in 1999, as Internet editor and morning business anchor for KPIX, a CBS affiliate. At the time, MarketWatch was owned by CBS. She left MarketWatch in April 2007 to manage her internet startup full-time. Enjoy the photos of Bambi, The entrepreneurial Filipina.

Isabel Preysler

September 16, 2007 on 8:14 pm | In Pinay Model, Pinay TV Personality | Add Your Comment Isabel Preysler

We’re going old skool in this latest pinay update and avoiding talk of scandals or nudity. This next famous Filipina has an interesting story. She is Enrique Iglesias’ (yes that famous singer’s) mother: Isabel Preysler Arrástia was born on February 18, 1951 in the middle-class neighborhood of San Lorenzo, Manila, Philippines, the third of six children to a middle-class Filipino family. Her nickname as a child was “Chabeli”, which would later be the nickname of her first child. According to the book “Reina de Corazones” by Paloma Barrientos, she dated Gregorio Araneta, Charlie Lopez, and Bobby Santos, among others, as a teenager. Her older brother Enrique died in Hong Kong due to a heroine overdose. She named her second son Enrique Iglesias, in honor of her deceased brother. Joaquin, her second oldest brother, also had problems with drugs, but overcame them and now lives in Canada. During her youth, Isabel participated in a charity beauty pageant for the Sheraton Hotel in Manila and was crowned queen. Jun Ikalav, a playboy with a bad reputation, started dating Isabel. This worried her parents, and at the age of 18, she was sent to live in Madrid with her uncle and aunt to study at Mary Ward College, an Irish Catholic university in Spain, where she studied Accounting. It was at a party in 1970 that she was introduced to a family friend by the name of Julio Iglesias, who at the time was not yet a famous singer. The couple had their wedding just seven months later and were married for seven years, during which time they had three children, Chabeli, Julio Jr. and Enrique. In accordance with their rising careers, Julio as a singer, and Isabel as a model in Spain and Europe, they exploded onto the scene in 1971 and became overnight superstars in Spain and Latin America.

Often dubbed “La Perla de Manila” by the Spanish media (”The Pearl of Manila”), readers at Hola magazine have voted Isabel Preya as the most elegant and best-dressed woman in Spain for 1991, 2002, and 2004, and she has consistently topped the best-dressed lists over the years in various Spanish magazines. Preysler is noted for conserving her beauty in spite of her age. She, her family, and her home are frequent presences in Spanish magazines. She also helps participate in events for the Philippine Embassy in Madrid. The above photo features Isabel Preya and George Clooney (who has a large following in Latin America). Enjoy the various photos of Isabel Preysler below. Continue reading Isabel Preysler…

Steffiana de la Cruz

September 14, 2007 on 6:10 pm | In Pinay Model | Add Your Comment Steffiana de la Cruz

Ha! Need to veer away from Vanessa Hudgens to a totally different pinay - a model, and a parent to two children Steffiana de la Cruz. There isn’t much information to be gathered about her. She was born as Stephanie Anna Zantua and is a Filipino-American. She met actor Kevin James on a blind date in late 2001/2002, and moved in with him within three months. The couple married on June 19, 2004. They have two daughters: Sienna-Marie (born September 30, 2005) and Shea Joelle (born June 14, 2007). She made four guest appearances on King of Queens, a long-lived sitcom in which her husband starred. She played a masseuse in Eddie Money (originally aired May 13, 2002); a female golf instructor in “Damned Yanky” (originally aired February 18, 2004); a manicurist in “Black List” (originally aired March 16, 2005); and lastly a bartender in “Affair Trade” (originally aired December 6, 2006).She dated and lived with the late actor Chris Penn from 1993-1999.

In July 2007, Kevin James was talking to David Letterman about his wife, Steffiana De La Cruz: “My wife does the breastfeeding, thank God. It’s awkward because at night the baby will sleep with us and my wife will leave in the middle of the night and right after the breastfeeding and the baby’s still hungry and she’ll roll over and just look at me. I’m like, ‘No, no. These don’t function.’ She doesn’t believe me. She’s just looking at me like, ‘If you don’t want to give me any, that’s fine. Those are bigger than mom’s.” He went on to say that Steffiana’s breasts are quite sore from breast feeding - is nothing sacred! He said a nurse suggested that she should put a bag of popsicles in her bra to help relieve the soreness. Kevin immediately thought,”Wow! Now I really wanna get in there. There’s no better combination in the world than a boob and a popsicle.”

The photos of Steffiana below were taken at the Evan Almighty World Premiere Universal City, California on the 10th June 2007. You can see Steffiana De La Cruz, seen here with husband King of Queens star Kevin James Continue reading Steffiana de la Cruz…

But we’ve seen her nude, and that totally came from nowhere. The news says this on the topic of Vanessa’s nude photo scandal - there are more exposed videos and a sex video. A source said that the footage and the photos were sent to Vanessa’s one-time co-star Drake Bell way before she was famous. Bell’s representative Jill Fritzo released a statement that Bell “says he never received those photos”. The sex video is claimed to be a forty-five second clip that is predicted taken by a phone-camera has now erupted online dubbed ‘Open Me First’. The clip shows Vanessa sitting in front of a Christmas tree wearing only a Santa hat, pasties to cover her breasts and a red thong with mistletoe decoration. Slowly Vanessa took off her ‘attributes’ one by one and murmured “I want Santa come up my chimney because I’ve been a good little girl this year.’ at the end of her ’striptease’. Bell is claimed to have received the video via e-mail but once again a rep denied the issue. “Drake never opened the video - first, last, or otherwise,” said a representative. “He learned his lesson about opening email attachments, even from people he knows intimately.” Vanessa played Bell’s girlfriend on his Nickelodeon show in 2006. She is currently dating her High School Musical co-star Zac Efron who has not made any statement regarding his girlfriend’s controversial photos. Continue reading Naughty Vanessa Hudgens…
