Today, I am bracing myself. Today I am cinching the belt, I am removing the self-respect. I am taking my chances on this unknown. Glancing on to faces-odd and new. Convincing my inner self  I am fine. I am okay.

Convincing that in life options such as this would somewhat  teach me to be brave. It would somehow gives me  courage to pursue my dreams, to strive hard for it. To put it into reality. But now my nerves are shaking, the brain neurons are simply producing abnormal hormones.

Why on earth did I come up with such a dire choice? Believing, I can do more than this. I can do more than what is possible to bear in mind. But I am sorry, I have assured myself, convinced and have  conjured  that doing this tonight is the only way to survive. This is the clashing of fear and self-respect- the war of pride and need. As much as I wanted to prolong the mindset of " everything will just fall into place" I could not contained myself anymore. The pressure is hunting me.

I could no longer take the agony of my daily hiatus. It is suffocating.

My fear is forcefully wrapping me, it chills me to the bone. All these years, I have been so strong on protecting the one and the only treasure I have- my self-respect. Living decently, and clinging onto this vow was an agreement even before my parents passed away. It was a strong verbal advice, "to live decently."

But on the direst times like this, bracing myself and fastening my seat-belt are the only few things I can do to protect my demureness. My mind is in deep tremor. Would I suck myself  "just" to get something? Or would I go home with my "self-respect" intact?

But I have come up with a decision, I am taking my chance- and I would not change it anymore. For tonight the buzzes of cars and deafening sound of howling old jeepneys and buses as well as their spins are the only cheering melody echoing inside my head. The flickering lights and the noise of EDSA somewhat protecting me, as if the norm's of being human living decently is still afloat. Just as you thought.


A comedy set in the middle of a war between rival a cappella groups and centered on a rebellious girl who joins one of the groups as an escape from her unhappy life at school. 

A sure thing to look forward to watch out. 


Go Jess! This is the only word I can blab, she's definitely hitting the bandwagon this time. We were saddened when she wasn't  called AI winner this season of American Idol, her Filipino fans were rambunctiously tweeting and posting their remorse on cyber spaces. But heck, it was not the end of everything. She will be launching her first international album!

Some critic said that it is going to be a big hit, her first single entitled Fairy tale will surely captivates fans hearts! So sing and dance with your heart out.

Watch it here!


After the big hit of Ate V's horror movie The Healing, the movie goer will soon enough be spending more time on movie theater to watch this yet another full nerve-wracking and scary movie Amorosa. Starring Angel Aquino act as a mother.

This movie would be a big hit!

Watch the trailer here :


The Philippine movie industry is quite different from what the usual global viewers have known for. it is more dramatic, more visual and somehow uplifting. Aside from its given plot that anyone else can fathomed what could be the ending is, still we are at par when it comes to surprises and tricks.

What makes it more unique is the characters that brought life to it, some given scenes like sampalan and awayan are the most celebrated scenes that are well loved and appreciated by the Filipino audiences. We cannot also deny the fact that our actors and directors are embarking on other way of presenting their craft to make it  more grandeur. The pag malupitan and mahirapan ang bida lead viewers to hate the kontrabida. It is like hell to them seeing the lead cry and tortured whilst the villain is so happy watching her suffer. And in the end, villain must be stop, punished worst is he/she must die.

Watch this :


It is quite complex yet purely subjective fact that religion is hitting its zenith on standing against RH Bill to be passed on. the war between the Anti and Pro's are raging with fire, both parties have extreme reasoning on why this Bill should be passed and why it should not be passed.

It is an insane act seeing Catholic church dying to stop this bill to pass, and that turned out to be a great mistake- by looking at the photo above, it seems the church is promoting HIV/AIDS! How dire and gruesome that is!

What it feels like being an antagonist to something that would help our economy better on the years to come? Would it be nicer and an accomplishment to celebrate, and to be joyful of?


I am not a tumblr user but definitely a blogger. One of my favorite blogger to date is Victor Basa, yes you read it right, aside from being a model and actor, this guy is venturing in blogging. Well, I would admit for my 4 years of staying on blogosphere I enjoyed every moment of it.

Everyday I looked forward to post,read and have my blogger friends checked. It's an awesome mundane to do. I always find time checking it. Plus the most enjoyable giveaways that some of the bloggers give. It's a win win situation- so I guess you probably know the reasons why blogging is more fun.

Alrighty, back to Victor Basa's blog giveaway. I am hesitant to conjure myself from joining. Damn, of all bloggers that will be competing for this cute and effin cool camera, I pressume that I would be going through a fine thin line if ever time permits me to win it. hahaha. Crossing my fingers  for that!

I deserve  to win this camera, because it would pave me more ways on reaching people, who can be able to help us gather more school supplies for the kids in Mindanao. They are the joy and the future of our country. I don't just dreamt of  owning this gadget for the sake of having a gadget. The main gist is, if ever my post would be chosen, and win it. I can be able to take photos- sell it online. It's feasible I am telling you. Then get the proceeds, and have it given to the Pens of Hope org. Where in it is possible enough for me to help kids. I don't have that much amount of money to help. So I am now extending my wings to join this blog give away. Hoping that I can be able to touch and inspire young ones to pursue their dreams.

So help me God!


Anne Hathway's  portrayal in Les Miserables is just perfectly done. Her enigmatic beauty, cautious act and her battle of freeing her mind and her life will give you second thought, this lady's taking her career in a different level. A woman of substance indeed.

The trailer for the upcoming Tom Hooper film of the classic story. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried star

Watch the on this magnificent trailer!


The Bourne Legacy Official 2n Trailer has been released,  we Pinoys will surely love this movie, since we know that most of the scenes had been shot on our native land. On the trailer, you can see how epic the stunts, our very own guards, the jeepneys and a lot more to see.

Centered on a new CIA operative in the universe based on Robert Ludlum's novels.

Here's the trailer 2!


(got it here)

The trailer of the most awaited sequel of Kimmy Dora has been released, on this sequel the personified Eugene Dominggo will take another challenge on portraying two different characters. The movie is set to be release on June 13 2012. So to all the fans of Ms. Eugene Dominggo, I'm sure this is going to be an epic funny movie of the year. Likewise crossing my fingers, as the first one was a huge success in earning and hitting the comedy box office. So I hope this one will surpasses the record.

Meanwhile here's the trailer! Enjoy.


Just got so addicted to the scene and the drama between the newscaster Mon Tulfo and Claudine Barreto and the husband Raymart Santiago. Well still the drama is on. So let us just witness the outraging battle of the two camps. It is going to be a knock out scene when these people will soon see each other in the court. Both parties had filed their lawsuits against each other, hmm, whose going to be the last man standing?

Let's find out soon!


The BPCI had spoken,the judges coincide and the scores had been tallied. In this year's Binibining Pilipinas set of winners are unexpected. Whilst those who are veteran are trying to ease the pain of losing once again. The verdict on choosing this year's winners are actually refined. It had happened a lot of times on the league of choosing somebody that would represent our country in the international beauty arena.

My heart had meltdown when my friend MJ Lastimosa of Davao City did not made it to the top 5, trying not to be bitter from the set of new winners we have, still my heart is maiming and questioning why this such beauty was robbed big time. She aced both of the swimsuit competition and ofcourse the nerve wracking Q&A. Decently she delivered well. Quite enough to understand that she exudes confidence and wit.

The truth has been boggling me for hours now. But I have to admit the fact that she lost it.

The destiny has been sealed to these 3 ladies that will soon represent our country internationally. Truly pageantry is hard to fathomed. I wasn't so appreciative when Janine Tugonon was called to represent us in Miss Universe. Too early to judge though. I just need to keep my mouth shut, and see if she transforms nicely. Vaguely understanding the sideways of pageantry. The unpredictability of its kind. I hope Janine T, will raise the flag higher than Venus and Shamcey.

Thirty (30) gorgeous ladies are showcasing beauty and brains for the Grand Coronation Night of the Binibining Pilipinas 2012 pageant, tonight at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.


Well I got cheesy and funny tweets from, it's randomly chosen to have the best of the best. So start laughing!

I've copied these tweets below from Twitter. Hope y'all like it.

Think of a number between 0 and 20, add 32 to it, multiple by 2, subtract 1. Now close your eyes. It's dark isn't it?

Sitting at Home: "Oh it's raining. Cool."
Sitting at School: "HOLY CRAP IT'S RAINING! LOOK!"

I have live through death of Michael Jackson, first black president, Royal Weeding and Osama's death. My life's a f**king history book.

"No body listens to me." - Yellow Traffic Light.

The awkward moment when you're taking off your jeans and your underwear decides to come off too.

I hate that feeling when you close you're eyes to apply shampoo and get paranoid that someone will kill you in the shower.

When people come over and your mom suddenly becomes the nicest woman in the world.

When I call my parents and they don't answer it's no big deal but when they call me and I don't answer, it's like World War III.

That stupid ass run you do when you're crossing the road.

The best way to make people remember you? Borrow money from them.

Me: "Why am I still single?"
Brain: "You're weird as crap."
Body: "You're fat."
Face: "You're pretty ugly too."
Food: "Don't worry, I'm here for you."

When I drop my phone, I act like I've dropped a new born baby.

When God asks what you've done with your life, try not to say: "Didn't You read my tweets?"

Things I do when I have to study:
1% study.
99% tell people I have to study.

Whitney Houston died this afternoon ... a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

Our sources tell us a member of Whitney's entourage found her in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel ... and called hotel security -- who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive. 

We're told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. According to our sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM. 

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation. We're told she was ID'ed by family and friends.

The singer famously battled drug addiction for years.

Houston was seen out in Hollywood Thursday night for a Grammy party ... and she did not look well (below). She even briefly took the mic and performed a song while she was there -- what would become her last performance.

Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking career. Her album "Whitney" was the first female album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold 200 million albums worldwide.


“The Bourne Legacy” is still shooting in the country right now, but a 2-minute trailer has already been released online since it is scheduled for a U.S. summer playdate later in the year (August). And it looks awesome (I’m not even referring to the Philippine scenes because the full trailer should include some of them in a few months’ time). Meanwhile, watch a short preview..

Plot :

The narrative architect behind the "Bourne" film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: "The Bourne Legacy." The writer/director expands the "Bourne" universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. 

Enjoy it!

You've heard of top-notch bedding and lingerie brands, but is there room in bed for another designer?

Georgia Republic architect Irakli Kiziria has designed a Louis Vuitton condom, enveloped in the label's notorious brown packaging and adorned with what looks like raised lettering (for enhanced pleasure, we can only assume). The luxury rubbers are priced at $68 each, according to the "official" website.

To put the price in perspective, $68 could buy you about six 12-packs of regular condoms.

But before you head to your nearest Louis Vuitton retailer, you should know the condoms aren't available in stores. (Bummer, right?)

In fact, Kiziria has no affiliation with the Louis Vuitton company and drafted the condoms in collaboration with Design Provocation as a design-project, according to the website. The team hoped to launch the product on World AIDS Day and donate the proceeds to amfAR, The Foundation For AIDS Research.


Change is constant, change is important.  But do the Gays in our society today have the right to flaunt what they feel?  Do  they have the luxury of making their  dreams into reality? To love and to be loved freely.

Philippines is still enveloped by bourgeois acts leading  into hilarious judgments and of course things that are obscene.  Literally gays in our society are still facing a great  battle and that is dealing with people who are hard to pleased and those who felt clean. But in my 21 years of existence I have seen a bit of a change, slowly people are a little bit of open and considerate towards what  gays feel.

Things that they  love, things that they wanted to do freely. But  the real change is still can't  be grasp.

My friend Mark is still frightened, he is still afraid of his past that made him traumatized. It started with a confession to his father, confessing that he is gay.  He thought that when he confessed and if  he would tell his father about his sexuality, he will be free from the burden he's been carrying for almost half of his life. But it was a terrible move. He was battered and beaten badly.

He forced to move out from his father's house, slept and live on the road. His father  was a police, and he dreamt of letting his son followed his footstep. But he failed, since Mark wants to pursue his fashion designing   dream.

1. When I was born, I got a choice - A big dick or a good memory. I can't remember, what I chose.

2. Your birth certificate is an apology letter from the condom factory.

3. A wife is a sex object. Every time you ask for sex, she objects.

4. Impotence: Nature's way of saying 'No hard feelings...'

5. There are only two four letter words that are offensive to men - 'don't' and 'stop', unless they are used together.

6. Panties: Not the best thing on earth, but next to best thing on earth.

7. There are three stages of sex in a man's life: Tri Weekly, Try Weekly, and Try Weakly.

8. Virginity can be cured.

9. Virginity is not dignity, it's a lack of opportunity.

10. Having sex is like playing bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand.

11. I tried phone sex once, but the holes in the dialer were too small.

12. Marriage is the only war where you get to sleep with the enemy.

13. Q: What's an Australian kiss? A: The same thing as a French kiss, only down under.

14. A couple just married were happy with the whole thing. He was happy with the Hole and she was happy with the Thing.......


Well for me blogging is something I look forward to each day, it is like an alter ego of mine. A memoir of my daily dose, be it in adventure, lessons in life, nonsensical posts that gives me excitement every time I do it. But I never get bored nor tired of repeating it. As what I have said it's my alter ego. A picture that depicts life fruitfulness. Blogging is fun!

What makes it even sweeter is the add ons in blogging. I started my writing in  mid of last year, I google advertising sites that offers some extra for people who are boring and who wants to earn extra income by posting on their blogs. I am one of those riffraff who is on the hunt of sites that gives great compensation. Google gave me so much, but in the end, it never give me satisfaction. Until I click on this site and boom, things had changed.

At first I was hesitant, but due to  my curiosity, I signed up. After a day, I received lots of offers coming from this wonderful site. I was stunned, was really amazed seeing their tons of offers all lined up for me to get it. It's up for grab you know.

Til now, I am still writing for this amazing site and I guess it will always be. I will be a loyal writer for them!

Thanks for your support!
