These I want for Christmas

I back read my blog when I first started it back in December and saw a Christmas wish list entry.

Then I thought, I should start thinking of my wish list come Christmas.

Here goes another list of the stuff I want this season of GIVING. Yes, yes, yes. I know. Ma-ma-materialism strikes back. I know this is untimely amidst all the chaos in the country. But hey, this is just a wishlist. Let's put insensitivity aside.

This is for your sake anyway. So you won't have a hard time thinking of what to give me.

Or am I just dreaming?

1. Last year I asked for a Fisheye Lomo cam. This year, I still want one. This is not the one I asked for a year ago, I want the chromiac version of the Fisheye. Perfect for photo taking while waiting for 12 midnight on Christmas.

2. How about my own portable DVD? The vacation will surely bore the hell out of me and that portable DVD is the perfect company. What do you think? Maybe you can include a DVD or two.

3. My eyes have been glued on Traffic shoes for quite some time now, and I think this is the right time to get one. Those pointed, shiny shoes would be perfect to wear on Noche Buena. Yes?

4. The child in me wants a Nintendo DSi. PSP is way too overused. I want something different this time.

5. Would I forget my long overdue dream? A DSLR for myself - whether a Canon 500d or that Nikon D5000. I think I should start plaguing my mom on this.

There you go.

My very own Christmas wish list.

I don' care whether it's wrapped or not.

Globe Tattoo brings Embassy to Subic

How do you bring Embassy to Subic?

I don't know.

And I don't even care.

All I know is that Globe Tattoo is bringing Embassy to Subic tonight at the 21st Philippine Advertising Congress.

Where else do you party at Subic?


My very first Philippine Advertising Congress will surely be uber fun.

See you there guys!

2012 on 2010

Christmas is the time of the year when you reflect and repent.

Now, 2012 is the movie of the year when you do the same.

We saw it happened with Independence Day. Another one came with The Day After Tomorrow. But 2012 is a 360 degrees different from all those disaster flicks.

For one thing, the end of the world on 2012 is a forewarning from the Mayan calendar. According to them, the Mayan calendar will end on December 12, 2012 thus the end of the world.

From there, 2012 visually created what could happen when the earth annihilates right before your very eyes.

Starring John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Chiwetel Ejiofor among others, 2012 tells us the epic adventure of saving your own lives when the world comes to an end.

We know of how John Cusack is great as an actor, but the supporting roles complemented each other to create that perfect ensemble.

There were, of course, parts that you wouldn't like but in a holistic point of view, the film's just perfect.

So I say, Independence Day + The Day After Tomorrow <>

You have been warned.

Pacman? Vice-president?

On my way to work today, the radio was tuned in to Mike Enriquez’s daily morning show in DZBB (and yes, I don’t have a choice since you ride down the cab with the radio tuned in already, it’s a good thing though).

My eyebrows suddenly raised when this certain volunteer group is recommending/suggesting/advising Manny to run as the country’s vice-president come 2010 elections fighting against the country’s high caliber politicians.

Under what grounds?

They say Pacman is the person who will help those forgotten or deprived Filipino athletes like Z Gorres. They say we are assured of his honesty in serving the people because he won’t be corrupting. He has the money anyway, they say.


Wait a minute. Hold your horses people.

I say my piece in three parts:

(1) He might be the Pound-for-Pound King, the ultimate warrior, or whathaveyous, but it doesn’t automatically mean that he is right and perfect for the position. It’s not as if helping all those athletes would help the country get back on its feet. We are healing a more serious wound than that.

(2) Politics is not Manny’s arena, and it will never be. He might have all the money in the world, he might even pay the country’s debt (exaggerated, yes!) but it doesn’t disqualify him to be corrupt. Okay, not him. But the people surrounding him? I don’t think so.

(3) I just can’t imagine a boxer leading the country. I am very sorry, I am not discriminating Manny in whatever sort of way, but I just don’t see it. It’s not as if boxing gyms would help the country. He’s not even qualified to be one. According to the COMELEC REQUIREMENTS, to qualify to run as vice-president, you need to be 35 years old and above. He’s 30. No can do. Sorry.

Do you hear me people?

Not Manny.

Let him play his game.

Let’s play ours.

Rock, Paper, Scissors

I am pretty sure you have heard of those asian poses. We, Filipinos, even call them Japan-Japan (with that peace sign).

But I never grasped its reality until I saw this site they call

I rolled on the floor, laughing.

I never thought that they even call some of these poses as rock, paper, and scissors (as what you see in the photos).

Its not that I am discriminating my fellow asians, but really, the photos are really funny.

I found it funny.

I hope you find just as funny.

No offense, really.

Now, let me try my rock, paper, scissors asian pose.

Just when you wanted it

Surprises come in unexpected instances, in the weirdest situations, in the most awkward packages.

As for me, surprise came in a Black Tie.

Nothing can ever replace the happiness you'll feel when that dream finally came true.

Now what do you do next?

You cherish it.

You make the best thing possible to be great in it.

You make everyone proud.

You love it.

I think I'm ready.

Bring it on!
