Ssssssssnnnnnaaakkkkeee Year. A Blessed 2013

First Day of the NewYear 2013 and First entry. Naks! First lahat. It's a new day. I do hope that life will be full of blessings and love for everyone. And I do pray that the Lord above will give us strength and wisdom whatever this year has to offer. Good Vibes ako this year. I can feel it, I can smell it, I can envisioned it - I, I, I need to poop for a while. My gas is taking control of my head.....wait..... Flussshhhh

2012 was an exciting year for me. Life is what you make it. I have tried to be more optimistic and energetic (including being mental) but the later months I lost my energy. No matter how hard I try to consume energy drink, supplements, vitamins and minerals and lecithin (sing...birch tree milk powder! creamy and white, delish alright!) - plugging, still, I wake up lethargic and retarded, not to mention tulo laway...ewwwwwwwwwwww.

No more New Years resolution this year. I am tired of making one, I have to keep in mind to stay focus, be positive in life and have lots of love. I came across one tweet that goes..not exactly I remember..that New Year is not finding new things but finding a new soul. O ayos diba, new soul, mag-out of body experience ka and mag hunting ng bagong spirito ang peg, parang change costume lang. Siguraduhin lang na di mapangahas ang makukuha. Year of the Snake pa naman ngayon, dila dila lang....ssssssssssssss (laway not included). Para sa mga adik sa Zodiac eto na... . I am a Metal Rooster and as the Zodiac says it will be a good year just to be wary about backstabbers and haters. If they mess with me, I'll feed them with the piranhas. Or lalawayan ko sila. Itatali ko sila sa upuan, kakain ako ng Paella Negra at Squid at sabay ssssssssssss sa harap nila hanggang sisigaw na sila ng tama na, tama na! joke joke joke...or pwede na rin.

ang munting handa

J for Jologs

Ayan napagod sa kakaparty!

Hope everyone had a blast last night. Hindi lang na blast ang mga physical parts eh or else. I would like to send prayers for those who didnt have a sound celebration. I hope God will give you good health and will recover fast. I am sending out my prayers and love to the victims of Typhoon Pablo. Padala pa rin kayo ng tulong water and food. Thank you everyone for making last year GREAT. Hope this year would be MARVELOUS!

MANA - A display of Lights

I always look forward to Christmas, not because of the gifts (although I enjoy having them all), not because of the parties, the reunions and the major weight gain to the point of bursting. One reason I enjoy is the display of lights around the city. And who could ever portray such thrill and fun but MANA.

Located in J.P. Laurel Ave, just before Robinsons, locals and tourists flock in their compound not only because of their antiques but their opulent Christmas decoration as well. The parade of lights and intricate structural designs, not to mention  their Mascots visible around the area withstanding the humidity and spreading good cheer. It was a fun way to celebrate the Holiday Season. Even if some of our incentives were cut off (Bitter Mode) still, just watching the lights made me happy.

At akoy nasita kasi ang bawal ginawa ko. hehehe

Dining With the Stars

Burger joints are popping like mushrooms around the City. The competition is fierce. Some prices are right while the others are flop like french fries drowned in oil. My favorite past time when I am from work is to eat. I have left the life of having a toned body and succumb to the desires of my gut.

Located at the lush scenery of Gaisano Mall's The Peak, we discover where the Stars Dine out (well mentally). Hollywood Burger has some controversial background on how it arose to fame however despite the issues it remained true to its name. The food is delightful, enough to get me nauseous afterwards. Its happiness. copyright

Doing my Health a Favor

I had a run for my money on different yogurt around the city but this stays true to my heart. Located around the food district of Torres St. Yoh Froz has opened its doors welcoming every generation. During the opening I came here thrice and brought some of my friends not only for its cozy ambiance, affordable prices and proportional servings but because of the taste. It makes my brain tingle, and if my neurons electrify then I am happy.

some benefits of yogurt. i dont have to expound

Diner for Two please!

Eating is one of my favorite past times which to the envy of my friends and detractors because despite of my voracious appetite I do not bloat easily. Well, only my belly does thinking I'm having a benign case of parasitic infection. One glorious afternoon, I passed by Torres street and noticed a new store on my way to the conference. There wasn't too much publicity regarding this food stall or rather I didn't hear any publicity at all. So this afternoon from a 24 hour duty and after some hours sleep, I have decided to invade such newbie.

California Diner gives you the dust, literally since its beside the road. It gives you a 1960's vibe like those in movies. With old school house rock music blaring on their radio, think about Grease. It reminds me though of those mystery movies of roadside inns where truckers and commoners stop over to satiate their growling gastric juices. It's a small area and gives you a relaxing feel (as long as you turn your back to the road so that people wont notice you.)

Breaking Dawn (The End of Taylor Lautner's Six Pack Abs)


The Twilight Series has finally come to an end. And the last installment made me awake as opposed to the previous movies which made me concoct my own series in dreamland. I was never a fan, I was coerced to watch by friends and even deceived at one point convincing me that it’s a good story only to find out it wasn’t leaving me asleep and drooling in my seat. It’s like a teenage version of Interview with The Vampire, only in raging hormones. Too much talking, pale looking characters, and a boy who likes to flaunt his body onscreen which females and some not so female viewers enjoy. The reason I watched is because Bella turned into a Vampire and with promising powers she possess her character became interesting.

So what’s in store in the last franchise? Bella is now having red lenses. A baby was born named Renesmee who happens to be half mortal and half immortal. However wrong word spread, thanks to a nosy character and the Volturi, the most powerful group of vampires wanted to kill her. It has been known that Immortal babies are equivalent to our “tyanaks” which explains why they have to kill them. Now Edward and Bella don’t want to ignite chaos and planned to convince the Volturi’s that their child is not a threat. And thanks to their friends, they gathered witnesses around the world with special powers to prove that their claim is true. I for one like the Amazon Vampires as well as the Vampire who can control the elements. The rest of the story you have to watch . . . it gets exciting in the end with a twist that dismayed the moviegoers.

In Review

Movies are an expression of our daily lives. Our hidden desires and emotional angst are depicted in those characters in the big screen that sometimes we can associate with them having multiple playbacks until the DVD screams stop. Well, it’s just an introduction to make you interested. Here are my takes on the previous movies that I have seen.

Wreck it Ralph

            Reviews of the movie were positive and on the opening day there were long lines at Abreeza. After much debate to myself I decided to watch the movie. It is cartoons so it can wait but this one was quite intriguing. Wreck It Ralph reminded of my ATU days at Ilustre. I have been into arcade games when I was young enough for my mother to file for bankruptcy. However, such addiction came into halt as I began to suffer migraines. Imagine those characters come to life after the shop closes. It was funny to see Ken complaining of back pains because he was tired of giving punches and saying (Adooken!). And Pacman counseling a group of villains – its like Alcoholic Anonymous. Hilarious. To cut the story short, Ralph the villain in the arcade game was tired of being the villain as well as living in the dump while the good guy, Felix  (fixing things was his specialty) got all the attention and was living in the penthouse (by the way he always get a medal in the end). He wanted to have recognition and the only way to get that is by getting a medal. So he went into Super Turbo (meaning going to other games to find a medal.) Its like playing Super Mario and suddenly this unusual character appears on the screen. Havoc sets in and later on realizes that it is important to be true to yourself. It is a heartwarming movie with a dose of laughter. I highly recommend it for adults and kids.


If there’s any character that kicks ass with panache and looks untouched afterwards, it’s Bond. James Bond. The 23rd installment of the Bond Franchise and the third of Daniel Craig’s portrayal of the character was still a delight to see. My father is a fan of the James Bond which explains why I have one of the actors name. And if ever I’ll be reincarnated, I want to live his life.
            The latest installment was less on gadgetry and more on action sequence. There were less nude scenes and more bruises. With the replacement of a new H and death of M, people will have to wait what’s in store for Bond. It’s not your usual installment; even my Dad said it was: “Ok Lang” But still, it was worth the penny.
