Filipino's Ingenuity Displayed

Filipino's ingenuity is displayed through this gas tank found inside a PUJ.

Fuel Tank

Dangerous? Yes, indeed. But no choice for passengers who need a ride.

Philippine Presidential Candidates For May 2010 Elections

Who are you going to vote?

Manny Villar: Poor boy

Villar: Poor boy

Gibo: Rich boy

Gordon: Amboy

Erap: Chickboy

Noynoy: Mama's boy

Jamby: Tomboy

I got this along with other pieces of information about Manny Villar through email. The original sender may be right about him. I just hope that in this coming May 2010 elections, Filipinos will be wiser in choosing the right President who can really transform the Philippines into a country with rapid economic growth.

Strawberries In Davao

Movin' to the city, I'm gonna eat a lot of strawberries…

Strawberries at SM

These strawberries come from Davao; they were packed by someone…

And sold at SM…

If I had them on my garden, I'd eat strawberries everyday…

Hundreds of strawberries, strawberries for me...

Hundreds of strawberries, strawberries are not for free… (I wish they were)

Rangitoto Island

I want to visit a place that feels like "stepping into another planet."

Rangitoto Island

It is should be a place as stupendous as the Rangitoto Island, the island that emerged from the sea as a result of a series of volcanic eruptions. This island is also widely known, today, as a botanical gem.

Rangitoto Island, by the way, is located in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand and it was featured in the film Under the Mountain.

Noynoy Aquino For President And His Promise...?

Noynoy Aquino: "Hindi ako mangungurakot (<--- it's in the future tense)..."

English translation: I won't get involved in 'corruption'.

Noynoy AquinoPossible meaning: I'm already stealing taxpayers' money but as soon as I'm elected President of the Philippines, I'll stop that illegal activity.

Milford Sound Of New Zealand

Milford Sound New Zealand

One of the scenic highlights I want to visit in New Zealand is the breathtaking view of Milford Sound located in Fiordland.

I just want to listen to the thundering sound of its waterfalls.

I am itching to touch the smooth skin of Milford Sound's native dolphins.

And most of all, I crave for the adrenaline rush when I go sea kayaking to explore the wildlife of Milford Sound in New Zealand.

Ah, New Zealand, I'll be lost in your embrace.

Hair Removal: To Wax Or Not To Wax

Hair Remover

I wish I could go back to the time when axillary hair or armpit hair in women was an acceptable sight. It was the time when women did not bother plucking, waxing, and using other ways to remove unwanted hair that continuously grow in the underarm.

Hair removal through plucking is never a soothing process of eliminating unwanted underarm hair. Waxing, on the other hand, is less harrowing than plucking. Nonetheless, both processes are unkind to my skin and they always bring tears to my eyes.

Whoever started that unwanted hair removing practice should be cursed.

How To Defend Yourself, Verbally


Verbal Defense: If your parents, teachers, girlfriend or boyfriend (or anyone) force you to admit your sins or wickedness, you could defend yourself by saying this:

"No person shall be compelled to be a witness against himself." – Philippine Constitution, Article III Section 17: Right against self-incrimination

Cheapest-Cheaper Airfare To New Zealand-- I Found One

As my desire to travel to New Zealand heightened, I started searching for the cheapest airfare from the Philippines to New Zealand. Unfortunately, there are no flights that would take me directly to New Zealand. Travel agents suggested taking Manila-Hong-Kong-New-Zealand route.

The Air New Zealand's HK$6,690 is the cheapest airfare I found so far. That offer has a travel period from March 1 to May 10, 2010.

After an estimated 10-hour flight from Hong Kong to New Zealand, I would definitely liven up my body soaking in the salted water of Piha—most famous surf beach in New Zealand.

Then, I would go catch some fish in the picturesque wilderness of Muriwai Beach. And party all night in one of the bars in Viaduct Harbour.

Ah, New Zealand… I wish you were just a few meters away from me.

Fringe TV Series Stars: The Chemistry Between Olivia Dunham And Peter Bishop

Because of a significant number of positive reviews about Fringe TV series, curiosity struck me so I downloaded the first episode of its first season. The first scene found me breathless. However, the excitement slowly dwindled when I saw Agent Scott (Mark Valley) and Agent Dunham (Anna Torv, the Cate Blanchett, Maria Sharapova, and Claire Danes wrapped into one) in the second scene. Mark Valley is just too old for my taste.

I almost stopped from watching the rest of the episode until I saw Peter Bishop played by Joshua Jackson. He is the same adorable guy in The Mighty Ducks and Dawson's Creek.

Peter Bishop and Olivia Dunham

The excitement twisted back during the first meeting of Olivia and Peter. Their chemistry exuded instantly and was felt by me, especially when Joshua's penetrating blue eyes gazed at Anna's beautiful green eyes.

I am still on season 1. But based on Fringe's reviews I gathered, these two do not seem to have a real romantic scene, like those amorous episodes involving Scott and Dunham. But then again, I just hope the writers of Fringe would heed to the cravings of their fans for more exciting, not to mention passionate scenes between Olivia Dunham and Peter Bishop. That would really make my day.

Visit New Zealand: It Is In My Top Ten Resolutions

What do Legend of the Seeker, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and Lord of the Rings have in common? They were filmed in New Zealand. And that’s where I want to go when time permits me.
Visit New Zealand

Photo source:

Apart from its stupendous sceneries, New Zealand is not at all crowded, unlike the Philippines. With only 4 million people living in this place which is comparable to the size of Great Britain, it is a perfect sanctuary for me to relax.

People, who have been in and out of New Zealand, dubbed the place as an ideal year-round holiday destination.

New Zealand’s climate is quite tolerable with average maximum temperature that falls between 20-30 degrees Celsius in summer and between 10-15 degrees Celsius in winter. Like in the Philippines, the weather can change anytime.

To help me get to New Zealand, I need to find a travel agent first.

Nicholas Sparks: Dear John, You Are Missing

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

Because I am a sucker for a good romance, I was wishing I could get my hands on the novel, Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, before its film adaptation will be shown in the movie theaters.

Owing to Nicholas Sparks’ Dear John’s light, easy reading, National Book Store labeled it as one of its bestsellers, ergo, it easily became unavailable because of high-demand. To prove it, Dear John is inaccessible in all branches of National Book Store here in Davao City.

Although the plot is surely predictable and its love story may not be realistic, I still want to seek refuge and escape with Nicholas Sparks’ Dear John.
