Pacquiao Fights and Calamities?

June 27, 2008

just want to publish an observation by one of my colleagues…it appears that every 13 days after a Pacquiao bout we encounter some sort or calamity here in the philippines…you can be the judge..

pacquiao vs morales after 13 days – wowoweee stampede
pacquiao vs larios after 13 days – mayon volcano erupted
pacquiao vs barrera after 13 days – glorietta 2 bombing
pacquiao vs.marquez after 13 days-rice shortage

pacquiao vs. diaz after 13 days…………. (we are currently awating if this holds true in the upcoming fight–hopefully not)

UPDATE (7/23/08)

as of now, this news is proven to be false since nothing happened 13 days after the pacquiao bout 🙂

survivor micronesia (fans vs favorites)

May 19, 2008

finally, some idle time to update this blog! survivor micronesia has ended and for the first time ever, my bet has finally won! (i usually favor one contestant to the other and my bet always place second or third, go figure)

i’m not exactly a fanatic of survivor but if i’m not at work and it’s on the tube then i usually watch it..i particularly liked this season because it has some very funny episodes (like eric giving up his immunity-lol) OUTWIT is also emphasized in this seasons’ survivor because the girls really used their brains in this one to have a final all-four women (blindside is “in” brawn is “out)

natalie was the first of the four to go, although she’s very good at convincing people she sometimes say some weird comments like letting the chicken go so that the rooster can have its way with her..and what about her question to parv at the last tribal council? i actually think she was hitting on parv! 🙂

cirie really had no chance of being in the final two when she dropped the ball on that last immunity challenge..she opted to vote for amanda with alexis and natalie and would have suceeded if amanda didn’t find the immunity idol.. did she really expect amanda to take her to the final two?

at first i was rooting for amanda but as the game goes on i can’t help but be irritated because she doesn’t seem to be able to make up her mind…from the comments of the juries it looked like amanda would win…i was surprised when parv won..she just didn’t communicate well during the final tribal council…i liked amanda but i agree with natalie when she said that sometimes amanda has this glazed look in her face..good luck with you and ozzy!

i think parv deserved to be the winner since she was really the one who orchestrated the oust of ozzy and the alliance with the 2 girls from the fans..she did a lot of socializing and scheming and i applaud her tactics…she made some smart moves which led to her victory..i just learned that she will use some of the money for the charity she is endorsing so good for her..congratulations!

let’s hope the next survivor can surpass this one!


bleeding love (i luv this song)

“Bleeding Love”
by Leona Lewis

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking round
Thinking I’m going crazy

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing’s greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love


migraine girl…

May 11, 2008

my head is aching (again)…it’s a good thing it’s sunday ‘coz it’s usually a quiet day (or should i say night?) here in the office…hopefully this migraine disappears soon because i don’t think i can offer any sort of support with this buzzing in my head…

i’m not really sure when this migraine of mine started…i became aware that something is wrong during my first year in high school…i keep getting this headaches and before that i always see bright lights in front of my eyes…the lights usually last for 15 to 30 minutes…i can see them even if i close my eyes…i actually thought it has something to do with my eyesight since i used to read a lot even if it’s already dark but the headaches continued even after getting a pair of glasses…

it was only when i saw an article in Times magazine about migraines that gave me a sense of relief because i was actually starting to think that i am sick (with tumor or something –knock on wood)…the article described the migraine attacks that i was experiencing “to a T”…unfortunately, it also states that there is no exact cause nor treatment for migraine…there are available medicines that can alleviate the pain but nothing that can really stop it from occurring…i saw a neuro just to confirm if i really do have a migraine and he pretty much said what the article in the magazine stated…he gave me some medicines to take which costs way too much…but i guess it’s a necessary evil 🙂

to all fellow migraine girls and boys, may someone develop a cure for our sickness 🙂


tv ratings

I know there has been too many talks about this already but I just want to express my two cents worth. Just want to make it clear that I am “kapamilya”. Anyway, I actually want to question the survey being released by AGB Nielsen. I once lived in a house that has their gadget for recording the channels being watched so I have a bit of an understanding on how it works. I ask all of you, is the survey a really reliable source of information on what channel or program is being watched the most? I Don’t Think So! Not because I’m a sore loser since I’m “kapamilya” but because the company is not transparent on how they go about picking the household where they put their gadgets. What if in 10 households that they installed the gadget 7 of them are already “kapuso” in the first place? Meaning, ever since the beginning of time they are already favoring the programs in channel 7. Don’t you think the result of the survey will be the same over and over again? And that the only time it will change is that if they watch some programs from channel 2? This is why I think they should be transparent on how they choose who to survey, if not to the public then to a third party who is unbiased. I know AGB Nielsen is already an established company and all but still…

Oh well, maybe I do am a sore loser but remember this is only my opinion in the matter. 🙂
