“Kadalasan, sinusukat ng marami ang kasikatan sa taas ng estado na narating ng isang tao sa buhay, o ang lawak ng kanyang naging kaalaman. Pero pwede ka rin palang maging sikat kahit sa sarili mong simple pero magandang katangian. Kasikatan na hindi pinilit at hindi hiningi, kundi bunga ng pagiging ikaw.. dahil mas masarap daw ang bunga ng pagiging kilala sa magandang butil ng inspirasyon na maiiwan sa iyong kapwa. ‘Yan ang kasikatang nagtatagal at hindi kumukupas magpakailanman.”

-  Korina Sanchez-Roxas

Take a look at the fitness regimen of our favorite celebrities!

Bida sa kalsada

Not all the time is the stage the venue for exhibiting talents. Rated K was able to meet different personalities who consider the streets as their stage, with passersby and the commuting public as their audience. They may not be actors and actresses, but they definitely are stars in their own right!

Brothers Anselmo and George Tamparong are known for playing the bamboo xylophone they personally created.


Your bus ride becomes more memorable with Warren Hernandez, the English-speaking “konduktor”, onboard.


This group named “Pilyoz” may seem like street statues, but they start moving if and when someone intentionally drops money in front of them.

 Panalo sa mundo

As one song puts it, “Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy. Ipakita sa mundo kung ano ang kaya mo. Ibang-iba ang Pinoy. ‘Wag kang matatakot. Ipagmalaki mo.”

Truly, Filipino talent and ingenuity have gone a long way already. World-class, indeed.  

“In na in” na pagkain

Because Rated K knows how much of a food-lover Filipinos are, it continues to search for restaurants and establishments which can satisfy our hungry stomachs.

Spiral in Hotel Sofitel boasts of numerous stations which offer cuisines from different countries, buffet-style. It may be costly at almost P2,000 per person, but they assure a valuable gastronomic experience.

Meanwhile, Cafe Clay is known for its specialties named after famous personalities, such as Makisisig Morales, Rice Ganda, among others. Cafe Clay is located at 8862 Sampaloc St., San Antonio Village, Makati.

If we are on a tight budget but still want to please our tummies, Mang Joey’s Gotohan is always on the rescue. Visit them at #82 Liberty Ave. Corner 14th Ave., Brgy. Socorro, Cubao, QC.

Korina tries the various sweets at Spiral’s desserts station.


Cafe Clay named their cheesecake after our host.


This special goto is a best-seller at Mang Joey’s Gotohan in Cubao, QC.

Dyosa ng masa

Her beauty and figure are much admired, much envied as well, warranting her the label “Dyosa ng Masa”. But behind the classy aura is also the kengkoy Anne Curtis, whom we’ve come to know more through hosting stint on “Showtime”. From teeny-bopper to dramatic roles over the years, Anne now enjoys a recording star status too, a dream which she admittedly struggled to become a sweet reality.

Anne started gracing the TV and cinema screens at age 12, with Magic Kingdom as her first movie.


Korina visits the two-storey apartment which was once Anne’s home when she was just starting out in show business.


After 14 years of being with Viva, Anne finally gets to fulfill her long-time dream of having her own album.
