Almost on a daily basis, we get the question,"Where can I buy WIP?" on our website(email) and on Facebook. In some cases, it gets more specific like "Where can I buy WIP... at a mall?". Yeah, that's right, a mall. And to that we answer, "WIP Caps, available at Capital G, located at Robinson's Galleria Mall."
And No, the 'G' of Capital G does not stand for Galleria so don't get it twisted.
Capital G's boss lady, Chelo Aestrid
Capital G Calye, has been open for almost 2 months now and they are going hard with it. The space is packed with activities such as the retail area where they carry several brands including their inhouse label clothing and accessories. They have a dance studio at the back where kids can get schooled on some fly B-boy moves. They take it even further with MC and DJ lessons at the music corner. Kids have it way too Good these days. Now that Good with a capital G.
Big event at Capital G Calye this Wednesday the 28. Battle Of The Champs Dance competition is on, so be sure to check that out.

“Thelma” is the first full-length feature film production of Time Horizon Pictures and is directed by film and TV-commercial director Paul Soriano. It is the story of a simple young girl from the province-Thelma (played by Maja Salvador) whose family is beset with challenges when she discovers her uncanny gift of speed. Her talent then opens doors for her – to elevate her family’s situation and change the course of her own life. But to do that she will have to run- against all obstacles, against personal hindrances, against shadows from her past, and against her own self-doubts.
“Many people run away from their problems, she ran to fix them.” Thelma is inspired by the stories of true Filipino athletes who were discovered in the province, and fought their way to represent the Philippines in the world stage.

THELMA - A Film By Paul Soriano Showing Nationwide on September 7, 2011
This guy Paul Soriano made a movie; excuse me, The Movie. He hates it when you don't make The distinction. Paul likes putting "The" on everything so much, he worked it in the main character's name(and movie title). I'm surprised he didn't call it The Thelma.
Jokes a side, Paul is The real close friend of the WIP crew. We all came-up together from our school boy days in ISM, where he was known for his school yard shenanigans. Now a days, he's still a major goof ball prankster but with the awesome ability to direct great films.
To support and commemorate our boy Paul's latest cinematic achievement, we made the Thelma baseball stretch-fit to suit The Director's personality. Some of the not so obvious features are the numerical date on the back of the cap 090711, which is the film's nationwide showing date. The design on the visor's underside is the chalk lines you would see in a track and field oval with the numbers 101781. This is Paul's birth day and not his ATM pin number.
Follow Thelma on Facebook to get more info on the film and the crew behind it
Another major acknowledgment goes to WIP's very own Mark Victor aka Mav. He worked side by side with Paul as the Editor of this full length film. For those who don't know, Mav's the guy behind all the dope animated WIP banners and promo videos you've seen on our website, Youtube and Facebook.

Mav and Paul actually work together ALL THE TIME. These two cinematic creatives have worked on a ton of projects and have picked-up the momentum these last couple of years. Will you guys get a room already?!
