OrangeMagazineTV.com Re-launch Party
|Causes for Celebration|
The word "orange" always strikes a familiar chord. Every where I turn these days, I hear the word "orange."
Like this morning.
I went to the Orange Place Hotel in San Juan (orange is the city's official color) to meet a good friend who just attended his friend's art exhibit at the Orange Gallery in Bacolod.
There's something appealing, I guess, about the word "orange." It conjures the color range between red and yellow in the visible spectrum. And the round citrus fruit, of course.
But in the local blogosphere, when you say "orange," what flashes across your mind is "entertainment." A site with a black backdrop, with half of a solid-colored citrus fruit strategically placed on the left-hand corner, peeking, like sunrise. Two tiny leaves adorning its crown. Across, in simple white font, is written: OrangeMagazineTV.com. And if you're not subscribed to the site, you'll be sorry that you missed something you wish you didn't.
OrangeMagazineTV.com is the Pinoy netizen's one-stop site for the latest news in entertainment, food, health, lifestyle, movies, music, technology and travel in the country. It's catchy. It's cool. It's fast and fresh. It's easy on the eyes and direct to the point. And it's perpetually giving away freebies. Yeah, you read that right. Constantly throwing contests and free stuff to its many followers. It's like a buffet of delicious news tidbits and entertainment, like a candy shop to the bloggers and to the freebie and entertainment junkies. It's the King of the Blogs, actually.
And who is the king of the bloggers? The man behind OrangeMagazineTV.com: publisher and editor-in-chief Mr. Jeman Villanueva. And last September 24, 2011, "Jeman" as he is simply known by the veteran bloggers, threw an intimate re-launch party of the site at Gweilo's, SM Mall of Asia, to reintroduce the year-old site with its fresh new look as well as its new batch of contributors-- now part of the Orange Team, honored with the golden ticket to the hippest and coolest events in the metropolis. And that day happened to be the king's birthday, too.

And to top off the celebration is the spectacular MOA-an fireworks lighting up the pitch-black sky, coinciding with the celebration. To the rest of the mallers, it's an ordinary fireworks night... but in that small bar tucked in one corner, in that small circle of bloggers, the fireworks were a symbol of new, exciting beginnings in the OrangeMagazineTV world. ~Stephanie Mayo, new OrangeMagazineTVcom contributor
