Filipina Bold Movie Star Ara Mina Reunites with Cristine Reyes

Filipina bold movie star Ara Mina and her sexy half-sister Cristine Reyes were recently embroiled in a nasty family feud.  Reyes had allegedly asked Mina to turn over an SUV as payment for the remaining P1.8-million balance for a Quezon City townhouse they bought in 2011 for their mother. 

If not, Reyes allegedly threatened that she would continue her personal attacks against Mina (source: ABS CBN news. com.)      Mina, 34, responded by filing charges of libel and grave coercion against her younger sister, Cristine,  24,  not to claim money but to “teach her a lesson.” Mina had earlier demanded that Reyes issue a public apology for her to retract the case.  I reported on this unfortunate sibling squabble in a post last April.

The Stranger and the Christmas Turkey

Turkey. I haven't had a taste of the bird in over three years. And no one's flipped me the bird since my asawa and I moved to the Philippines in July 2009. I was excited as a 16-year-old boy watching his first Ara Mina flick knowing I would be soon enjoying this delectable treat (the bird, that is.)  I prayed that it would not meet the same fate as the Old Man's Christmas turkey stolen by the neighbor dogs in "A Christmas Story." There were a lot of canines prowling the premises. I was getting nervous.  (more…)
