First CONVERSE Flagship Store Store Opens in the Philippines

Everybody loves sneakers, and when it comes to this kind of shoe one name comes to mind, Chuck Taylor by Converse. They have been the shoe of the deviant generation, the rockstars and the  artists (like me). Its comfortable feel makes you want to jump and run, and sometimes eccentric. 

Though converse has been available in the contry for quite some time and stores in malls, they just recently launched their first flagship store in the Philippines which is the biggest in area and also with the variety of merchandise available.

In the launch January 18, 2013, it was well attended by the media, the converse management, and celebrities like Bernard Palace, Tessa Prieto-Valdez, Kapamilya stars Ejay Falcon, Khalil Ramos, Zaijan Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat. The store is located near the link between the Landmark and is along the people traffic in Glorietta. 

GMA Network's official statement on Sarah Lahbati

"Last December, Sarah Lahbati unilaterally decided to take a leave of absence of one (1) month from GMA Network, because she said she wanted to de-stress and unwind.  Because her reasons were vague, they were not accepted by management.  While we understand that work in our industry can be stressful (as in any business), we believe that this is not only unavoidable in most cases, but also a part of what one does as a professional and/or performing artist.

Her leave of absence was also disapproved by management because of her pending obligations (i.e. Party Pilipinas, on-going promos and other endorsement commitments).  However, on the evening of Jan 2, she tweeted that she will be going to Switzerland to study, despite the disapproval given to her last December on taking a leave.  This is in violation of her contract, because she has to perform and appear in programs and events assigned to her, and make herself available to faithfully and promptly fulfill all engagements contracted for her by GMA.

At the same time, she has yet to address the issue of her walking out during taping, which caused the production team to pack-up, and incur an additional cost of 500k.  She is therefore, currently under investigation and the network is still studying on what actions to take."
