The X-Life shoots pilot episode in Ilocos Norte

This is a repost. The show airs Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 10pm.

The sweltering 34º Celsius heat in Ilocos didn’t prevent QTV’s X-Life from shooting sandboarding scenes with the LEAD Movement, the innovator of sandboarding in the Philippines, in the world-renowned Desert of the North, or the Laoag Sand Dunes in La Paz.X-Life, a public affairs magazine show focusing on fitness and lifestyle, airs its pilot on QTV Channel 11, channel on free TV powered by GMA Network Inc, on May 26 June 2, Wednesday, at 10PM. The  initial episode also includes segments on extreme mountain biking and surfing, shot in scenic Maira-ira Point in Pagudpud. The show promises to be entertaining, informative and cutting edge.

    • They are all lookers. Steph’s got the great features of the dad and mom, Ronnie Henares and Ida Ramos of GMA’s Penthouse Live circa early 80’s ata. Omigosh, I used to stay up late just to catch that dance show even if pinapagalitan kami ‘coz children are supposed to sleep early LOL.

    • Thanks Ariane for keeping me company kahit sobrang mainit. Hope we’ll be able to sandboard, too, to our hearts’ content.

  1. Did you just say that you’ll introduce me to him? OMG, Gino is so f’ing HOT! Don’t play with me, I will himatay.

  2. Hello 🙂 I was able to catch it on QTV last night (June2, around 10:20pm)… i saw Mike Oida (hello Mike 🙂 🙂 🙂 ) of Kapuluan Vista Resort — their bikes, paddle boards and surfboards; Sandboarding in LaPaz (coolness); and gosh… they were doing calorie counting on Vigan Longaniza, Bagnet and Empanada… please, haha! Of course they featured exotic pukpuklo and dinakdakan on the menu 🙂 So anything who hasn’t gone up north — go Ilocos 🙂
