Japanese actress and model Maria Ozawa recently launched the online gaming portal Maria’s Room in partnership with M88 Mansion.
Some of the major content of the online gaming portal include excellent and engaging games for players like “Bikini Party” where sexy ladies play beach volleyball, “Football Baby” where they can play soccer, and “Ladies Nite 2 Turn Wild,” a video slot where they can party the night away. In addition, the platform also features exclusive videos and a photo gallery of Maria.
“I want to express how grateful I am for the continuous support, confidence, and trust I receive from one of Asia’s most recognizable and most established online casinos. It was my first time partnering with a gaming company and I am simply thrilled that through it, my personality is presented in a new light. It definitely mirrors my fun side,” she stated.
Now that she’s back in the Philippines, she admitted she missed everything about the country – from the food, the weather down to the beaches – especially the kind of hospitality she experiences from the people.
In 2015, Maria did Nilalang, a movie opposite Cesar Montano. She also looks forward to doing another film in the country.
Meanwhile, her romance with celebrity chef Jose Sarasola has already ended. Is she ready to fall in love again in the Philippines?
“I’m happy right now. But hopefully, I’ll find another love here,” she ended.

In a recent media conference, Xian Lim admitted that he is feeling nervous that his first project for GMA-7 is premiering today. Entitle False Positive, he shares stellar billing with Glaiza de Castro.
It can be remembered that Love. Die. Repeat should’ve been his maiden Kapuso project but taping was temporarily put on hold due to Jennylyn Mercado’s pregnancy.
“I am under pressure but first and foremost, I’m so grateful to the Kapuso management and the whole GMA family for the great opportunity to work for them. It’s definitely a huge honor,” said Xian.
How does he handle the pressure?
“I know it’s there and I know it would be hard. But I just vowed to do my best to please our director.”
According to the former Kapamilya star, False Positive has a lot of lessons to impart. With what’s happening in the world these days, he thinks that things are already heavy. He believes that the best way to communicate a message is through something light, something that can make people laugh.
“But even with the comedic moments, the viewers have a take-away. Definitely, they can learn something from this project.”
On the lighter side, many are curious how he and girlfriend Kim Chiu are doing especially at this point when they’re both busy with their respective careers and they get paired with different stars.
“Well, since we’re both in the entertainment industry, we already accepted the fact that we’ll be paired with other artists. We also agreed that we want to grow individually and as a couple. I believe we can work on both at the same time,” Xian shared.
“One factor that matters between couples is assurance. You have to assure each other that you will always be there for each other come hell or high waters. We don’t let petty things affect our relationship,” Xian concluded.
