2913 items

21 03 2008

google_reader_2913… on my Google Reader and this is already after reading about 200 items from the people-i-know folder.

Yes, that’s how long I have been away from reading feeds/blogs and also from writing on my own blog. There are a lot of reasons behind this blogging break:

  1. Work: We have lots of deliverables and the team really needs to exert a lot of effort to ’em out of the door on time.
  2. Personal stuff: I choose not to talk about the details yet. 🙂
  3. Procrastination and plain laziness: Despite the heavy workload at work and the personal stuff I went through, I could still have made time to blog but just did not get to it.

Anyway, since we have a four-day weekend here in Manila (in observance of the Holy Week), I figured that it was the best time to get started again.

In that absence, I’ve had many realizations and observations so expect some new posts on this site. Not to mention the many pictures that I have not uploaded yet…

What’s so funny?

7 01 2008

Last Saturday was the “Big Night” for the Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2. Although I am not really a big fan of this edition (I watched each show of the first edition), I keep myself up-to-date through my mom as well as Alaine’s grandma.

// The final outcome, with Ruben coming out as the Big Winner, did not really come as a surprise. Filipinos usually had the soft heart for the underdogs or those with humble beginnings. I still remember Hero Angeles’ video during the Star Circle Quest (yeah, I watched the finals of that show too… only the finals ha!).

What I noticed about that “Big Night” though was the spoof that they did on the Big Four. Although some parts were funny, most of it was bland and you come out with the feeling that the script was not well prepared. Then again, it might just be me.

But that’s not what I was referring to. I am referring to the spoof made about Riza admitting her virginity. First, let me just say that even though I was a leader in YFC and SFC, I have always been open-minded about sex. Still, I do not find it funny when people tease others about their virginity. I just believe that those who are virgin-by-choice were the ones who chose the road less traveled, and were strong enough to stand by their decision.

Find his REAL characterWhile we are on the subject, I just want to share this image I found on the PostSecret blog. The message was pretty close to what I told a friend a couple of years back.

Just to be clear, I am not saying that you need to sleep with your boyfriend to know his REAL character. But if you are, then this is one crazy way to find out.

What is the world coming to?

Sudan man forced to ‘marry’ goat

“The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.”

“They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife,” Mr Alifi told the newspaper.

I saw the “funny” video but I really thought that was just some kind of special effects or something… What is the world coming to?

Note: I wrote this months ago but got buried under my pile of junk.

La Salle spelling

21 10 2007

I was reading Ranice’s blog about the La Salle-Ateneo game and was intrigued about the wrong spelling issue.

Finally found this on Jojo’s blog:


These Jerks Should Be Skinned Alive And Burned…

20 10 2007

From ABS-CBN Interactive:

Eight people were killed while at least 129 others were injured after an explosion ripped through an upscale mall in Makati City Friday afternoon.

“This was a bomb. But beyond that we can’t say anything else yet because we are still investigating. What I can say is it was not [liquefied petroleum gas] that caused this,” Razon told reporters.

These kinds of events just make me soooo mad! Why ruin the lives of innocent people? Mothers with their children just enjoying some time together? Why? Why can’t they just target those idiots who steal from the country? The corrupt officials who pollute the airwaves with accusations against one another.

Damn these cowards who do not have the balls to fight head-on but hide behind their bombs instead.

Hmmm… I did not know what to expect as I was approaching another milestone in my short life. Will I suddenly feel old? Will I start to reminisce the things that I did as a youth? Will I suddenly feel depressed for not having achieved goals that I have set for myself?

But, when the day came, I felt nothing. No, it was not a “nothing” that is equated to some deep, philosophical emptiness. It was just another ordinary day. I went to work as usual. Talked and exchanged SMS and email with the GG as usual. Accompanied her home as usual. Nothing out of the ordinary.

What does this mean? I guess, it means that I am content with life. Sure, I do have problems just like everyone else, be that at work or personal life, but, all in all, I am happy.

nikonFanBy the way, I just want to give a shout out to my GG for her wonderful gift, an HP iPAQ 512 Voice Messenger (although it came 2 weeks in advance). Thanks, Yey! Also,  a shoutout to my dear officemates at Navitaire who game me this wacky gift. Thanks, folks!
