The Fighter 2013: The Battle vs. Human Trafficking in the Philippines

without comments

I met my friend Andrew a few years ago when he was living in Manila for a few months to work for an anti- human trafficking organization named Visayan Forum and I am glad to hear lots of things about the group and what they’ve been doing to stop modern-day slavery here in the Philippines.

Visayan Forum’s good work with the leadership of Cecilia Flores-Oebanda has made major strides to protect children from the sex trade and convince the country’s biggest star, Manny Pacquiao, to join Cecilia as a fighter in the battle against modern-day slavery. Since 1991, she has helped more than 70,000 victims or potential victims of human trafficking.

CNN has taken notice of their efforts and has produced “The Fighter”, a film that represents the very core of the CNN Freedom Project. Here is a preview of this remarkable project:

Airing on CNN International on two consecutive nights beginning in May 17th(part 1) and 18th(part 2), The Fighters provides a unique glimpse into the world of combating human trafficking through the eyes of those risking their lives so that others may live theirs in freedom. It explores themes of social justice and globalization, as well as offering insight into both the benefits and drawbacks inherent in governmental-charity-celebrity partnerships.

carine the great

with 2 comments

one of the most stylish, if not THE most stylish woman on earth is going to be featured on CNN’s revealed. i’ve loved carine for such a long time, she’s so fabulous. simian looks aside, i think she has amazing, effortless style – she’s my fashion idol!!!! there’s something so natural and sensual about her look and style, so so so smoldering. I LOVE IT! can you just imagine her closet? i think that would be my version of paradise.

and i’m glad she’s putting all those rumors to rest about her “apparent” move to american vogue. she can never do the things she’s doing now with french vogue with the american big sister. anna wintour’s vogue is far too business-like and political to be able to present such beautiful clothes and styling like its chic-er european siblings(vogue italia’s franca sozzani is another fantabulous editrix). actually, american vogue has got nothing on all her siblings. even vogue nippon kicks her ass by a good mile.

so mark your calendars carine fanatics – revealed:carine roitfeld will be shown on march 18th, 8:30 and 17:30 GMT (that’s +8 hours HK/MNL time). can.not.wait. for a preview, check it out over here.
