A Night With Ramie! :D

I met up with a college buddy, Ramie, last Wednesday evening. We haven't seen each other after our graduation in March of 2005. Wow! That was five long years!

Ramie was one of those intelligent people at school that I got lucky to be friends with. We were coffee buddy. Whenever we have time to spare, we spend it at a coffee shop in front of the school. We talked about politics, celebrities, dreams and aspirations! LOL! Just about everything, basically.

He's a friend who's there to listen even if I don't make any sense! And I really look up to him! He's a great writer and I always encourage him to blog. Unfortunately, he hasn't built up his website yet. He's so busy with his job, not at the office but he's been traveling a lot in different beautiful places here in the Philippines. Which by the way makes me envy him all the more!

I got surprised when he talked about the adventures he had with his job. I didn't imagine him going through all those life-threatening events. He's even working in Cotabato City in Mindanao where crime happens a lot! He's thrilled to be there, I guess!

A night with Ramie was just like the good old days. We had coffee at Starbucks, had a walk at Greenbelt Park and was able to watch the first part of the last installment of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. I'm hoping we can do it again next month, not here in Manila but back in the province! He promised a treat and I'm looking forward to that!

Thanks for the friendship, Ramie! See you again, soon! :D

The Future Princess Of Wales

Justify FullWhen Prince William's engagement to Kate Middleton was announced, the media went gaga over it! The beautiful Kate already got the media's attention for 8 years of being Prince William's steady girlfriend. They went all the more frantic when the date of their marriage was announced! They're all over the news!

Kate was being compared to the late Princess Diane, who was Prince William's mom. From fashion style to charity even to how they live their lives. We all know that Kate isn't from a royal blood. She just happened to study at the University of St. Andrews where she and Prince William met. She's undeniably beautiful! Her pretty face, I think looked so perfect. Whether she uses a blackhead removal or not, she really look stunning!

She's bound to become the Princess of Wales next year! Yeah, it's like a Cinderella story! :D

My Brother's Plan For A Job...

My brother, Florante and his wife, Joy are both registered nurses. Like some of the other nursing graduates here in Philippines, they haven't landed a job yet. They were planning to work abroad. So they applied on agencies here in Manila some months ago. Their application came to a halt because Joy's Dad suffered from stroke. They went back home to take care of him and their little boy, Brandon Zyle.

My brother told me through text message that his father-in-law is now getting better. And that he's looking for a job. Not only that he misses wearing medical scrubs or uniforms, he needed to earn money for his family. I'm not exactly sure what he wanted to do now. The last time we texted, he told me he's planning to apply as a policeman. And I was like, "Yeah, whatever you say, bro!". Err.. not exactly a motivating choice words.

I hope he would land in a job soon, though. I'll get to see them and talk to them when I get home. I miss my nephew, Zyle. I better think of a gift for him when I get home! :D

I Want To Watch Secretariat

I haven't seen the movie Secretariat yet but I've seen it's trailer and got a bit curious about the movie. So I read a few reviews about it.

It's a true story about a horse named Secretariat who has been the Triple Crown winner in 1973. He was owned by Penny Chenery, played by the beautiful Diane Lane. I haven't seen Diane wearing equestrian outfit with riding boots on the movie trailer, though. It's a male-dominated society at that time so I don't think she also rode the horse in the movie. Well, I guess I better watch it. John Malkovich, playing the trainer Lucien Laurin, looked eccentric in the trailer. It makes me all the more interested in finding out how his acting did in the movie! :D

Well, here's the trailer:

Kurt Transferring School? I Guess Not!

The "Furt" episode in GLEE this week featured Finn's and Kurt's parents' wedding. And well, Sue's marriage to herself! LOL! She's really funny and eccentric! Have you seen her blue gown? It's... err... I don't know. It didn't really make any difference on what she wears every episode. The wardrobe definitely have become part of her identity.

Kurt is still being bullied by Karofsky. He's actually already been frightened by the football player who was Kurt's first kiss. He's been threatening Kurt all this time. Despite friends' backing him up, Kurt has decided to transfer to Dalton Academy to protect himself from Karofsky.

I don't know. I have a feeling that Kurt won't transfer schools, though. :D

Kirstie Alley's BIG Life

I have seen the trailers of "Kirstie Alley's Big Life" but haven't watched an episode of the show. It's the Golden Globe and two-time Emmy winner's (Kirstie Alley) reality show about her life! From being drop-dead gorgeous, the actress became unexpectedly BIG. I wonder why she didn't try thermogenic fat burners which are also effective to go back to being sexy once again?

Anyway, the series showcases Kirstie's battle with weight loss. Kirstie has a funny personality. And it looks like it's a funny reality series!

I wish I would be able to watch one of the episodes of her show! :D

Shopping Per Se

I dropped by the mall yesterday after my gym session. I was hoping to buy a dress for Thanksgiving Day at Church next month. The mall wasn't having a sale so most of the dresses were expensive. I contented myself with just looking at the beautiful garments, the elegant prom dresses, the short ones that I would always dream of wearing. I can't wear them without legging since I don't have nice legs. Sigh! I bet the malls will have a sale next month. I've already spotted the dress that I want to buy. I'll wait for the sale though so I can save some money. :D

I still wanted to shop at the night market. The products there are way cheaper than at the mall. I wish my friends and I will be able to set a date for the night market shopping!

Forget You - MM

Glee had the pretty Gwyneth Paltrow as Holly Holiday on their 7th episode "Substitute". She took over Glee Club when Mr. Shuester got sick. She sang so well and she's so gorgeous!

I was supposed to post her rendition of the song by Cee Lo but it's already been other bloggers' feature on their Music Monday. So I decided to have the original song posted for this week's MM.

So here is Cee Lo singing "Forget You". Enjoy!

Shopping On A Sunday...

After work today, Lowela and I passed by the shopping malls in Ayala. Some of the shops and the department stores are on sale today. I bought a nice sling bag and wanted to buy some more things that I need but I don't have enough time. We can't stay up late because we still have work tomorrow morning. Too bad I wasn't able to check the camera that I wanted to purchase. There won't be anymore sale tomorrow. Besides I have a lot of work to do after my shift at the office tomorrow. It's Cyber Monday! I might just check some websites that sells gadget at discounted rate. I have a lot of online chores to accomplish tomorrow anyway.

Well it's weekend for the rest of you out there! I hope you're having fun today! :D

Wish List - Digital Camera

I always pass by the 4 connecting malls in Ayala Land (Greenbelt, Land Mark, Glorrietta and Shoe Mart) each time I'm on my way home from work or from working out. There's no other route unless I decide to take a taxi cab on my way home which seldom happens since it's going to cost me a lot of money.

Holiday is fast approaching. So these 4 malls often do Super Sale lately. I sometimes get something to buy just to take advantage of the sale.

Today, after I workout, I decided to pass by the electronic and appliance sections in the malls. I am planning to buy a digital camera - a gift for myself before this year ends. I have been dreaming of being able to own a Canon camera, an SLR camera to be exact. I always wanted to take great pictures and maybe learn photography once I acquire this gadget.

I have to save money for the SLR camera since it pretty expensive. I'm hoping to buy one for myself next year. For now, I'll be contented with a digital camera. I hope to buy one before my homecoming.

Enjoying My Peaceful Days Off Alone

More often than not I'd rather stay at home and watch t.v. during my day off from work. Since I live alone, I don't really have someone to talk to unless Lowela who lives just next door to my apartment decides to drop by and chat with me. Most of the time, it's just me, myself and I. :D

I like it when it's peace and quiet. Sometimes I get annoyed when someone drops by and disturb my peace. LOL! It's just that I can concentrate on my online chores if I don't have any distractions. I bet you know what I mean.

I can spend all 3 days off just sit around my pad. I don't get bored anyway because I can watch my favorite t.v. shows, go online, finish my personal and online chores, watch movies online and sometimes sing my heart out with my guitar. It's funny because this "alone-ness" doesn't bother me at all. I think I like it. For now I guess. I'm enjoying my single, peaceful life! :D

Shopping At Night Market Later...:D

My friends - Judith, Julie and yours truly are going to Pasig City for the night market later. We have been planning for this shopping spree for months now. We heard that there are a lot of cheap stuffs that we can take advantage of at this night market. So we are about to see for ourselves later tonight. Our promotional tote bags are ready for the shopping spree! :D

I'm excited about fitting new outfits! I lose weight and in good shape now. I won't get depressed anymore when I try to fit something and look at myself in the mirror. I used to get disappointed and end up not buying an outfit before. I feel good about myself now because of working out.

I'll be meeting Julie and Judith after my workout! New clothes here I come! :D

Sweet Serendipity - MM

I was listening to the radio last week and heard this song being played on air. The DJ didn't mention the name of the singer yet but I recognized the voice! It's Lee Dewyze! The American Idol season 9 winner! I haven't heard his voice for quite a while and I was really glad to hear one of his songs! It's called "Sweet Serendipity" which right away became my favorite!

I love Lee Dewyze!

Anticipating More Calls On Black Friday

Thanksgiving Day is an annual tradition in the United States every fourth Thursday of November. Call center agents here in the Philippines like myself who work for a company that serves American clients, are reminded of this day as well. We basically expect a lot of calls during this season especially during Black Friday since it's sale day in the U.S.! Americans, after the feast for Thanksgiving Day will surely take advantage of the Sale at shopping malls and online companies.

As for us who's going to work during this day, we are expecting to be having a free meal at work! They did it last year, so I'm hoping I would be able to get a taste of roasted turkey next week! :D

Pacquiao's Victory Over Margarito!

It's like watching a David vs. Goliath fight on the just ended ring fight between Pacquiao and Margarito. A lot of people thought that Margarito had the advantage over Pacquiao because he's bigger, but they were all wrong! :D

It was live streaming of the boxing fight at the office after my shift at work. So I stayed for a while to watch Pacquiao beat Margarito! The pantry at the office had 3 screens ready for the boxing fanatics. The place was full when I got there and the fight had already started. Everybody cheers whenever Manny Pacquiao throws fist combinations at Margarito's face and also moans whenever our fighter crunches at Margarito's blows! Watching it with that crowd is really breathtaking at the same time exciting!

Manny Pacquiao once again made us all proud! Although he didn't knock Margarito out, it was definitely a great 12-round fight!

Mabuhay ka, Manny Pacquiao!

Other Alternative To Lose Weight?

The gym is 2 rides away from my apartment. Just like any other days that I don't workout, I got lazy to hit the gym today. How I wish that it's just nearby. I won't have to ride a bus and a jeepney just to workout. I know I get a lot of benefits in working out but it takes a lot of my time just going on my way back and forth between gym and home. Once my program ends, which is going to be less than 3 months from now, I might consider other alternatives. Maybe try to check out cheaper gyms nearby or let fat burners work for me. It's less pain and effort. I still have to think about that, though. For now, I better try my best not to get lazy on working out. Or else, I'd regret the money I spent for my workout! :D

Gene Simmons Family Jewel in Bio

One of my favorite channels on TV is the Biography Channel. I love watching real life stories of the rich and the famous and the ordinary real people. They also feature reality shows.

One of the shows I come across Bio which eventually became my favorite is Gene Simmons Family Jewels. It's about the family of the bassist of the band Kiss - Gene Simmons, who's also known as "The Demon". That's how he look like when the band performs. Well, with all the make up and basically the band's concept, some probably think these rock stars live their lives like creeps. Talking about stereotyping! :D He's actually not a "Demon" in real life, thanks to the show. We were able to see a glimpse of how Mr. Simmons live his life. He doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs like what other people think about a "rock star". But he is a womanizer which wasn't really highlighted on the show. Yet they talk about it a lot.

He's a wealthy musician/businessman who pampers his girlfriend, Shannon Tweed and kids, Nick and Sophie, with whatever life has to offer. They live in a mansion which is surrounded with landscape lights that give a beautiful view of the house in the evening. Gene and Shannon are together for years now but haven't been married. They're happy with whatever is going on with their lives.

I find the show funny and really entertaining.

Starbucks Rap! :D

I find this video really cool! Makes me crave for my favorite Mocha Frappe Grande! Grrr! LOL!

Bachelor President's New Date


After breaking up with Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad, our bachelor President Noy Aquino is now dating the famous make-up artist who used to be the actor John Lloyd Cruz's ex-girlfriend- Liz Uy. She's gorgeous and freaking lucky! LOL

Shalani on the other hand seem to get over with the break up. She's now Willie Revillame's co-host on his show Willing-Willie. I haven't watched her on the show yet. I bet she's going to do her best on the hosting gig though.

Going back to Liz Uy, I bet she's having the time of her life. She look nice and after being broken hearted by the handsome actor John Lloyd, I think she deserve someone far better! 

My Music Videos To Be Posted Soon! :D

I slept late last night because I was taking a video of myself singing a song with my guitar. It was already more than 10 takes and finally gave up because my fingers were already swelling. LOL!

I'm confident with my face now because I was able to find an acne solution for my face. You can just imagine how depressing it was having a lot of pimples. There were times that I wouldn't want to go out at all because I'm too ashamed of my face. It was the worst acne attack that ever happened to me. I'm hoping it won't happen anymore.

The acne is long gone. I am now very careful of handling stress and make sure that I don't put a lot of chemicals on my face nowadays. The scars are not that visible as well so I thought about taking my music videos. I will be posting some of of those videos soon. That is if I ever succeed on taking them myself! :D
