The Philippines is a country of good storytellers. Even before the 16th century, when the Spaniards colonized the land of a thousand islands, the native Filipinos were already very good storytellers. Historical records say that at night the community gathered around the fire and exchanged stories. If you haven’t visited the country in years, you might be missing out on this tradition of storytelling. Lately I’ve been thinking that the stories Filipinos share are what we now call the Pinay scandals.
Where can you get the latest news from the Philippines?
First, check out the online sites of Filipino newspapers and TV stations. For newspapers, there is the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the Philippine Star and the Manila Bulletin. All of them update their website whenever there is any celebrity news. You can also check the websites of television networks. These networks have a news department which also publishes the latest news online. Visit the ABS-CBN and GMA news pages.
If you look at the blogs you can also get the latest scoop on Filipino news, including the latest celebrity scandals. Sometimes blog sites post stories about Filipino celebrities faster than newspaper and TV sites. Friends of actors or TV personalities blog about them. Even fans blog about their movie idols so you can get the latest news on the most famous stars in the Filipino entertainment industry.
Many of them have their own Multiply accounts. They update their account themselves and write about the latest things that happen to them. You can simply type the name of the star you want to learn more about into Multiply’s search engine or other social networking sites like Friendster. There is a good chance that you will find their personal accounts on these sites. You can even leave comments or messages if there is anything you would like to ask of these Pinay celebrities.
