Women's Marches Draw Millions Across The Globe

There was a great disturbance in the Force yesterday, 21 January 2017, a day after the inauguration of Sith Lord Donald Trump as the 45th POTUS.

With the man taking over the reins of the highest power in the U.S., the rights of women as well as those of minorities, immigrants and LGBTQ seem to be more at stake than ever before. Neither have the men he chose to serve in his cabinet manage to instill confidence that the people's rights are not being threatened.

The constant fight for equality, representation and diversity is a familiar thing for women everywhere. It takes place at home, at school and in the workplace, and started from the very day you were born.

Never abating, the struggle continues and sometimes, it feels like a lost cause. Then there are days where you strive to keep up with the momentum and do or die, to have your voice heard because you are, in a way, also standing up for your fellow sisters who may not have a similar opportunity to speak for themselves. Red Dot Diva feels ... has been living with such strong sentiments. She believes most of you do too.

At the Women's Marches across several cities in the U.S., activists gathered and rallied for women's rights. The grassroot-organized march was estimated to be the biggest protest in the history of the U.S. with over a million participants. About half a million people converged in Washington D.C. with hundreds of thousands of others in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and Denver.

#TBT: Diva's Biceps Hunt at AsiaPop Comic Con Manila 2015

It's Throwback Thursday! (yes, actually it's Friday here already on Red Dot Island but Red Dot Diva is allowing the slow-pokes to catch-up. :P)

To add on to the occasion, it is also Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.! *gobble gobble*

As the year is winding down to the last 5 weeks, Red Dot Diva looks back on one of her most epic biceps hunt of 2015.

The fabulous haul of biceps happened at Asia Pop Comic Con (APCC) Manila 2015 during a merry September weekend. The pop-culture convention held at the World Trade Centre was the first for the organizers Al Ahli Holding Group, and had a wide range of guests including comic creators, cosplayers, toy designers and celebrities.

With the help of fellow Glam Alliance Bloggers pal, Ed from toysetc as cameraman, the APCC Manila Biceps Hunt was ceremoniously captured on camera.

AsiaPop Comic Con Manila 2015: Clear Your Vision! Paul Bettany Joins Celebrity Guest List!

SQUEEEEEeeeeEEEE!!

This fantastic news drops early in the evening for all geeks who will be attending APCC Manila two weeks from now.

Paul Bettany, who made waves recently as the powerful android Vision, joins the growing celebrity guest list for the convention!

Red Dot Diva first noticed the talented Brit actor when he shared screen time with Heath Ledger (one who is still greatly missed) in the 2001 movie, "A Knight's Tale". In the movie, Paul Bettany had many memorable scenes as the charmer Geoffrey Chaucer but mainly also because he flaunted his adorable nakedness in the first few scenes, like so:
