I don't know if this applies to all territories, but TFC U.S. recently added English subtitles to all DAILY teleseryes. The long wait is over!

I know the reasoning behind that as well as KrisTV but it irritates me reading it. Its for those that don't speak Tagalog, still... irritating on my screen.

Instead of actual subtitles embedded into the program, wouldn't closed captions work too? Not sure how CC works for all cable providers, but at least it could give viewers a way to toggle on/off subtitles when needed. And ever since the transition, I've noticed a decrease in most of the programs' picture quality, especially It's Showtime. Hopefully there are still improvements to the system, but so far it was pretty good. I personally liked watching #MMKClosure last night with subtitles.

Its so obnoxious now that I don't even want to turn on TFC. The screen gets covered with words when I just want to see the actors or individuals do their thing, gawd!

We need a Tagalog closed caption option instead of this TFC FORCED subtitling!

“OOH LA LAM” GETS READY FOR SECOND SEASON ON TFC

    March 5, 2015 at 2:55 pm


SERIOUS OR FUN?  “Seriously fun” with exciting recipe twists and surprises! That’s the spirit of the second season of Ooh La Lam  to be aired soon only on TFC on Sundays, 5:45pm Pacific.  With very successful Chicago-based private chef and TV host Ron Bilaro, fans look forward to learning how to prepare traditional Filipino cuisine such as adobo, pinangat, tinola, and the like with a modern twist.  The show is intended for anyone who wants to elevate their most basic Filipino culinary skills and advance to cooking these dishes with a more global appeal.

More than just your ordinary cooking show, though, Ooh La Lam is packed with easy-to-follow recipes, useful tips, trivia, even a cultural lesson or two.  The host-chef shares his experiences while growing up in the Pasig City and the Bicol region in the Philippines and shows how these memories become an integral ingredient in forming his recipes.

Bilaro was born and raised in the Philippines.  His family immigrated to the United States when he was in his teens. He started working as a flight attendant but after 9/11, he wound up as one of the most successful graduates of the Le Cordon Bleu program of The Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago.  His list of clientele includes prominent families and corporations in the Windy City and the West Coast.

Aside from hosting “Eat and Ron” on TFC, a culinary adventure across America, Bilaro is working on his second recipe book “Cooking Privately with Chef Ron Bilaro”. This will be his first e-Book. His first book was published in 2009 and was sold out.  Bilaro is also currently one of the celebrity friends of the Ronald McDonald House Charities which promotes the welfare of children around the world and is an active supporter of Gawad Kalinga (“Give Care”), an anti-poverty movement in the Philippines and other developing countries.  Bilaro hosted his first TV program “Life Pinoy Style”, a cooking and lifestyle show from 2006–2011 and was a food columnist for The Chicago Tribune (Dishing with Ron Bilaro) from 2004 to 2007 which also appeared at The Baltimore Sun and Sun Sentinel of South Florida.  He worked a sous chef to Chef Art Smith, personal chef to Oprah from 2003 to 2005.

Posted at 08/15/2015 6:18 PM | Updated as of 08/15/2015 6:19 PM


MANILA - Swiss-Filipino actress Sarah Lahbati is open to moving to ABS-CBN.

In an interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight," the 21-year-old Lahbati, who is currently being managed by Viva, said that she is not closing any doors for a possible transfer to the Kapamilya network.

"Well you know what Tito Boy, it was an amazing experience 'yung first time ko sa ASAP," she said of her appearance on the noontime variety show last Sunday. (WATCH: Sarah Lahbati performs on 'ASAP')

"But kung ano man po ang opportunity na dumating, open-minded po ako na tanggapin 'yun at mag-work," she added.

Lahbati also talked about the new season of "It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez," which currently airs on both E! Channel and TFC. Sarah is the partner of Richard Gutierrez, whom she has a child with.

"Actually maraming eksena na makikita samin nila Richard at Zion na hindi nakikita samin. You know like sa buhay namin like candid moments, fun moments, sad moments and troubles," she teased.

Anyone mad that UKG is no longer live on ANC and instead we get the ANC Mornings show with Gretchen, Ginger and some other guys? Bring back UKG LIVE!

This has happened before in the past with TFC and UKG on ANC.

And, to add, TFC removing Kapamilya Deal or No Deal for no apparent reason. Can't find it on the TV listings at all and it's now a broken link on TFC.tv... :(

Maybe it was an issue with DOND international airing rights like PBB.

I don't watch TNT either, ehhh.
