Hei! Last blast before Summer Ends!

I asked my brother to take that picture in our uncle's studio. :)

It's good to be back! Good evening bloggers! Yep, I know I know.. I've been in hiatus for these past couple of days because I went at Tagaytay to spend the remaining days of this fateful summer season.

Guess I have to fire away with the things that I've missed, shall we?

*****
Most critics were definitely right- both conferences' final series for the NBA ended abruptly before reaching a thrilling seventh game.

The LA Lakers finally dispatched their counterparts, the Denver Nuggets in a spectacular game last Saturday. Los Angeles' most celebrated cagers utilized the Nuggets' seemingly weakening power and loss of agression to their advantage, putting to shame the entire state of Denver. The final score is 119-92.

Meanwhile, the boys of Orlando Magic did the same, utilizing the Cavs' reliance on Lebron James and the misorganization of their team plays to demolish the latter's hope of making it to the finals. The final score is 103-90.

Yep. The stage is now set for a thrilling final showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic- the former poised to gain their former glory and the latter willing to prove that they deserve to be a part of NBA's pantheon of legends.

Those motivations will be put to the test come June 4, 9 am ET.

*****
The Katrina Halili-Hayden Kho issue's spiralling out of control, isn't it? It's getting more ridiculous and diluted than ever, with the inclusion of Abner Afuang's drama last Thursday.

Oh boy. Probably for most people, TV's getting more better than ever.

Just one thing noticeable: I guess the senate's jumping on this issue to make their needed "pabango" for next year's elections, isn't it?

Cmon senate peeps, we've got a lot of issues other than that to discuss and alleviate. My God..

I just hope that this scandal thingy would end in a postive note.

*****
I have a new hobby. And yes, I'm having fun on it.

It's photography.

After Dad bought me a new Nikon D60 last Wednesday, I experimented on it, borrowed my brother's lens, bought a photography book and jumped into the bandwagon of those who are hooked into photography.

Let's just say I might use this in conjunction with my IT profession, isn't it?

*****
Alright, thankies for visiting my blog. See ya' tomorrow! :)

Hei ya!

Vain as always.. :P

Current Mood: Tired and bored...
Song Playing: No Boundaries by Kris Allen

Hey everyone! It's a hot and humid Tuesday, and it's quite annoying considering the fact that I just recovered from my fever. I'm still pretty much sensitive to heat- yes, an after-effect of my sickness, I assume.

I drove earlier this afternoon to accompany my Dad at Makati to visit Grandma's grave. It was a serene moment to say the least. We bonded up together upon our arrival, talking about some personal things and the like. He even told me that he's quite slow to see how I've grown so fast, and that I am so much in hurry with my goals in life. Guess he was right. I have grown so fast.

I'll cherish that moment, knowing that he'll be leaving this country next week. Sigh.. I'll miss him badly..

Anyway, I'm not here to be depressed or anything, haha! Let me just give you some NBA updates as of late.

*****
The L.A. Lakers probably has received their most disappointing loss so far in the West Finals series in Game 4 after being demolished that easily by the Denver Nuggets. Just like the Cavs, they were never given a chance to get ahead of their counterparts. The final score is 120-101.

Kobe Bryant's 34 points wasn't enough to give the Lakers a much needed lead for the win. The Nuggets proved that their team plays are neat enough to combat LA's key assets. Smith also proved his prowess within all zones of the court, and showed his ability to create magnificent passes and plays in behalf of Denver's staple ball handler Chauncey Billups.

There are 3 notable moments in the game:
1. Dante Jones was given an intentional foul call after tripping Kobe Bryant on the wooden canvas. He was then ordered to remain on the bench til' the match's conclusion.
2. Both teams suffered from successive foul troubles. It was noticeable that these players were eager to contest bodily contacts in order to hinder the opposing team from delivering their plays.
3. Two Lakers fans were seen in the middle of a big Nuggets Fanatics crowd upon the lower patron section of the Pepsi Center. I guess they were beaten to a pulp outside the stadium.

*****
That's it for today! See ya' tomorrow! :)

Yesh! I'm much better right now!

Yep, I'm better than ever!

Good evening folks! Yep, I am now fully recovered from my previous fever this week. Thank you so much for those who are sending their tweets and messages to me. It helped a lot. Thankies! :)

Since I am much better now, I decided to stroll and drive a little bit at Alabang. God, I never felt better than before!

Let's talk about some things, shall we?

*****
On NBA, the Cavs received their second loss in the Eastern Conference Finals after the Orlando Magic demolished the former with a strong 10-point lead, demoralizing Cleveland's heroes in the process. Varejao and Ilgauskas of Cleveland were fouled out successively during the last quarter of the game, further placing the Cavs in a difficult predicament. Orlando meanwhile, utilized the power of their fans and the Cavs' reliance on Lebron James to deliver their spot-on plays during the game, immobilizing Lebron and his boys to render a lead.

Sad to say, Lebron's 41 points in the basket did not hinder the Magic from their rampage.

Most notable key players from the Magic during that game include Hedo Turkoglu, who delivered placement shots and impressive plays, Dwight Howard, who proved his strength in both the zones of the court, and Rashard Lewis, who showed the Cavs that he is also a threat to reckon with.

The final score is 89-99.

*****
I reflected earlier this morning about some things, including the Hayden Kho-Katrina Halili scandal, since a lot of my friends were discussing about it. To tell you the truth, I am so dead tired of this scandal, due to the fact that it is being talked upon everywhere- literally.

I hope that this would be the last time that I'll be doing my take about that issue here in my blog.

Here are some points or rather, realizations regarding that issue:
1. Somehow, Katrina Halili should blame herself. She brought it upon herself. She was not mindful of the consequences that she might face because of her actions, plus the fact that she dismissed the idea that she is a public figure.
2. Dra. Vicky Belo is the real victim here. She trusted and loved Katrina, as if she's a part of her family. She gave her sponsorships, helped her in her career and so forth, but Katrina repayed her by blatanly stabbing her back. But even though with all these, she remained in-love with Hayden, despite the fact that their relationship's affecting everyone close to her big time, most notably her children.
3. It's impossible to figure out Hayden's real motives here. His statements are so much diluted it hinders us from reading his mindset about this issue.
4. We must be blamed for this as well. Our curiosity and desire to share and watch the videos further cause, in some ways, humiliation to the persons involved in those videos.
5. These TV stations must avoid talking about this issue too much in their news programs. It hinders them from discussing other important news, plus the fact that most of the kids are tuned in to these programs, causing them to be curious enough about sex. TV peeps, try to think about that.

Guess that would be the last I'll discuss that scandal.

*****
That's it for today's post. See ya tomorrow! :)

Quickie NBA Updates

Even though I am still sick today, I'll be updating you with the latest NBA news as of late.

The Lakers bounced off from a bad homecourt campaign as they defeated the Nuggets with a final score of 103-97, giving them a 2-1 lead in the series. Successive foul troubles and misorganized plays have brought the Nuggets in this predicament, giving them a bumpy start in their homecourt campaign. Although they have gained an early lead, it was Kobe Bryant and Trevor Ariza's efforts aided by Pau Gasol's inside power that destroyed the advantage that the Nuggets have possessed in the first three quarters.

Kobe Bryant placed 41 points in the basket, while Pau Gasol headed the rebound boards by 11, with Chauncey Billups topping the assists records by 7.

Tomorrow, it's gonna be the Cleveland Cavaliers-fresh from the victorious end of their first two homecourt campaigns- and the Orlando Magic for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with the latter gaining the chance to play in their hometown.

Hey! Please follow my brother L.A.'s blog. :)

Hey just wanna ask you to follow my brother's blog. :)

His name is L.A., he's kind of new to blogging and it'll be all great if you'll befriend him. His blog address is ladrifter.blogspot.com.

Thankies! :)

Sucks to be sick....

Does it seem like I'm sick?

Current Mood/Status: Still sick... *Sigh..
Song Playing: A Daily Anthem

A good day bloggers! Yep, I missed doin' this. After 3 days of hiatus, I'm back here on the net. Yeah, I was sick this past couple of days. I've got a fever last Wednesday night, and it ruined big time my entire plans for the weekend. It sucks to be sick. It's a good thing that I'm feeling much better than before.

Alright, so let's cap off the things that I have missed as of late.

*****
The road on the championship crown intensifies as both of the conference finals' series were tied to one a piece.

The Lakers suffered a debilitating defeat from the Denver Nuggets with Carmelo Anthony providing most of the team's needed points. Anthony delivered 34 in the basket, with Kobe Bryant following with 2 points short. The final score is 106-103.

Meanwhile, in the Eastern Conference, it was a complete shocker for everyone as the current season's MVP Lebron James rendered a desperate yet spectacular attack from the three-point lane at the game's very last second, giving the Cavs their first win over Orlando Magic. The score is 95-96. Lebron James proved his power and leadership skills as he hoisted the team to bounce back from their previous loss. However, Orlando proved that they are a force to reckon with after destroying the Cavs' lead in the previous three quarters of the game, thus demoralizing the latter in a state of panic.

Wow. Things are just getting much exciting. As the old adage says, "The game's just beginning.."

*****
Congratulations to Kris Allen, our newest American Idol for this year.

Guess he just proved that he is indeed the Dark Horse of the competition. He pulled an amazing upset over Adam Lambert after convincing the rest of America that he deserves to be crowned as the new idol.

Just like last year, it was the voting power of America that saved Kris Allen from losing the competition.. Nah, I better change that one, since both Adam and Allen are already winners from the very beginning. :)

*****
It was the talk of the week, the issue of the month, and probably the biggest scandal of the year.

Obviously, I am referring to the Hayden Kho sex videos. Actually, I was about to discuss that back then, but I elected myself not to, since I have no idea in what's really going on... until, that is, a friend of mine sent me those vids. It was quite graphic to say the least.

It's disturbing to know that most of us Filipinos are obsessed or probablt frustrated in seeing those vids, plus the fact that this issue has escalated into a higher level, with other people and the authorities having their dibs on it.

Sucks to be you Hayden. Guess you're now paying the price for all the deeds that you have done with your partners- recording these things secretly and underestimating the fact that somebody might just grab them for his own purpose. It's the same thing with Katrina, except that she has no idea that their deed's being recorded and that she's sincere enough to learn from this painful episode and move on from all the disgrace that she received from the public eye.

Let me just quote Bong Revilla's statement before I get to my own take on this issue: "Hayden Kho is the pervert of the highest kind."

Geez.. Aren't we perverts as well? Cmon, we are the ones who jump quickly into the PC to search for these videos. We are the ones who endlessly scour the metropolis to purchase copies of those sextapes. We are the ones who are passing it to our friends like a useless rag doll. Those acts just further add up the humiliation that his partners are suffering as of late.

From what is worth, we don't have the right to completely condemn the persons involved in this scandal. We must take ample time to observe ourselves and realize what is truly right.

I just hope that this media circus will serve as a lesson for Hayden Kho, his partners, and to everyone..

*****
That's it guys for today. Hope to see you next time. Just wish for my quick recovery guys, okay? Take care! :)

West Finals Game 1 Updates..

Let me give a quick recap of the earlier matchup between the LA Lakers and the Denver Nuggets for their Game 1 in the series.

The LA Lakers utilized all the means that they could muster in delivering their first win against a defiant Denver Nuggets with just a 2-point lead. Kobe Bryant topped the scoreboards with an impressive 40 in the basket, with Carmelo Anthony following by 39. Pau Gasol dominated the rebound boards with 14 rebounds, as opposed to Kenyon Martin's 8. However, despite the loss, Denver's Chauncey Billups proved that he's capable of being a surrogate leader to the Nuggets. His amazing plays and ball handling skills became a threat to LA, hindering them from contesting effective defenses to their shots.

The final score is 105-103.

Of Mail-Order Brides, American Idol and etc. :)

Isn't that a nice view? Haha!


Current Mood: Hungry, bored..
Song Playing: A Daily Anthem

Good evening everyone! I believe it's the second to the last Tuesday of the month, meaning my summer days are indeed numbered. Yep, four weeks from now and I'll be packin' to school once again. Nah, I guess it's a normal thingy to deal with.

Me and my bro. LA made it a point to stroll at Makati for a while earlier this morning. Let's just say we're dead bored here in Alabang, haha!

I have a lot of things to talk about. Permit me to fire away.

*****


Last May 12, Alec Baldwin appeared in an edition of the Late Show with David Letterman and was asked by the latter about his thoughts on expanding his own family. Alec then proceeded to reply by joking that he'll probably get a mail-order bride from the Philippines or from Russia.

Apparently, this joke caused Sen. Bong Revilla to release a statement telling that if Alec Baldwin ever sets his foot here in our country, he'll be beaten to a pulp and exposed to the real definition of mayhem.

Here's my thing: as you see, there's a very thin line between a comedic expression and an insult. As a comedian, you must know how to juggle that line up, considering the fact that you might just offend people. On the other hand, I don't think we have to take Baldwin's joke that seriously. It's a freakin' joke people, unlike the article released by that gay whatsisname Chao. Fact is, we're doing the same thing when it comes to other cultures isn't it? Let us also consider the fact that whenever we say something very offensive to other countries, they brush it off immediately, as if they've heard or read nothing. We're just over-reactive or probably, much vulnerable than other countries. I think we just have to learn the art of brushing off a joke like that.

On the other hand, Sen. Bong Revilla doesn't need to react that way. This just proves his ignorance of the reality that exists within our country, or probably his guilt over that certain fact.

I'm not saying that I'm not a Filipino. It's just that we're unable to do something to, at least, clean our image. The cause: poverty. Without the stigma of poverty, probably Alec won't even mention Filipinos on that joke. We must do something to reshapen our image and prove our decency above other cultures. Got my point?

Another thing: Bong, instead of focusing your energy on that joke, why don't you go out of your house and do something to alleviate some of the issues that we're suffering from? Use your head mister.

Sigh.* So much for that one.

*****

Tomorrow, we'll bear witness to the final showdon between Idol hopefuls Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in American Idol, and I am so much excited about it.

As far as AI's concerned, both of them have dominant strengths over the other. Kris is an ideal musician, able to play different instruments and juggle through a variety of styles, while Adam is a total performer, a flashy rocker that has the charisma to wow the crown with his own vocal power.

The big question is this: will they be able to prove out those strengths tomorrow? That we'll have to find out.

But hey, one thing's for sure: Simon's expression will never change even a bit I'm telling you, haha!

*****
That's it for today's post. See ya! :)

One More For the NBA Championship..

Alright, let me finish my NBA updates for today.

The match between the Celtics and Magic was put to a close in the last 3.8 seconds of the final quarter as the Orlando Magic dispatched the defending champions off their campaign, leading to a fated clash against the Cleveland Cavaliers this Wednesday. The final score was 101-82.

Hedo Turkoglu headed the Magic in the scorecards and assist boards, contributing 25 points in the basket and 12 assists for the team with Ray Allen and Rajun Rondo of Boston following with 2 points and assists short. Dwight Howard proved himself as the rebound king for that night, putting an impressive 16 rebounds in the records.

Yep, folks. We are now getting closer towards the NBA Finals, and it's going to be as much exciting than before. :)


Quick NBA updates!

I missed doing this. Alright, let's cap off today's posts with a quick NBA lowdown.

Yesterday, we witnessed a spectacular death match as the LA Lakers demolished the Houston Rockets with a 19-point lead, giving them the ticket towards the Western Conference finals to face the waiting Denver Nuggets. Pau Gasol made most of the needed points and rebounds for the team, contributing 21 in the basket and 18 in the rebound boards with Aaron Brooks and Ron Artest following short by 13 and 8 respectively.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics seem to be the underdogs in Game 7. The Orlando Magic displayed successive team plays and rallies, giving them a five point lead against Boston. It's all down to 66-61 as of late, bringing the third quarter to a close.

Alright, that's about it. Expect more NBA updates in a bit, so stay tuned for that!

My David Experience :)


Probably it's the talk of the weekend, and perhaps a moment that everyone will remember in ages.

Yep, I'm talking about the David VS David Concert yesterday at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

It was a great concert. I cannot easily express in words the emotions that I've felt during the event. It's a one time -big time moment that would last for a lifetime.

Before attending the concert, we decided to hang out a little together with L.A. and my Mom and Dad- who surprisingly, secretly bought out a ticket for his own. It's nice to know that my Dad's there. It's a moment that I'll cherish since he's about to leave days from now.

Anyway, the back-to-back concert kicked off with David Archuleta. It's fun knowing that most of his songs were crowd favorites. Guess the event's in favor of the younger David isn't it? Haha! After Archie finished his thing, Cook and the band followed shortly, delivering an awesome performance that wowed the crowed even more.

Probably the most memorable and pivotal part of the concert was when David Cook sang his last song for the event. He dedicated "A Daily Anthem" to his deceased brother Adam, which caused most of the audience to be touched a bit. He even asked Archie to come over to the stage and sing it with him. And as you all know it, a duet ensued within the very finale of the event, and it was awesome. It was very emotional to say the least.

I can say that this is the most memorable concert I've ever attended in contrast to the previous major performances that I've seen.

I have to say, it's for the ages. :)

Shocker Friday..

Gotta love driving. :)

A good day fellow bloggers! It's sad to know that I've got 30 days left for this summer vacation. Sigh.* I guess I can cope with that, since I'm a little bit excited na din naman for my third year in Beda, haha!

You might just wonder: Why the heck would I give such a title as that? Well, I'll discuss that in just a bit in connection to my NBA updates.

Let's cap off this post first with some playoff news.

*****
Indeed, today's a complete shocker for most NBA fans as 2 of the most exciting playoff series were tied to 3 a piece, leaving our mouths agape for their conclusion.

The Houston Rockets proved earlier that they are poised to grab the NBA Championship even without their key players as they dominated the LA Lakers with a 15-point lead, tying the series off prior to a death match this Sunday(Eastern time) at Staples Center. Aaron Brooks lead the Rockets with an impressive 26 points for the team, following short to Bryant's 32. The Lakers dominated most of the Statistic Boards, but the Rockets pulled an upset near the end of the game to deliver a spectacular win.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics fell incapacitated to the rampaging comeback of Orlando Magic after suffering a 83-75 loss to the latter. Dwight Howard made full use of their homecourt advantage, capping the statistic boards with 26 points and 22 rebounds, with Rajun Rondo following with 5 points and 6 rebounds short.

This is getting more exciting that we've expected. Guess we have to wait for a double thriller this Sunday.

*****

I'll miss my Dad... Sigh.*

He'll be leaving kasi the country next week in conjunction to his job. He'll be away to Italy for a couple of months or more.

I know, I know. It's quite short for an absence but you see, I really love my Dad. A big chunk will be dropped off from my own knowing that I'll have to cope with missing my buddy, my first mentor, my closest friend..

He's not just a dad.. He's more than just that.

Sorry if I'm acting like this. I'm quite sensitive when it comes to these things. Mababaw lang ako kung umiyak at malungkot kumbaga.(I have a tendency to cry and be saddened that easily.)

Guess we have to learn how to hold on with a ball and release it when the proper time comes..

Don't you worry peeps.. I'll be fine. Trust me. ;)

*****
Alright, that's enough for today. Hope to see you guys next time, probably this Sunday since I'm all prepped up for the David VS David Concert, haha! Yah, I'm so much excited for that. Till' then! :)

Excited for David VS David :)

Peace! :)


Current Mood: Hungry?
Song Playing: Nah.. I'm listening to Boys' Night Out, haha!

Good evening bloggers! I'm so much excited for Saturday. My mom just bought three tickets for the David VS David concert- one for Mom, my bro. LA and the last one for me. :) Yey, I'll get to see these two huge stars perform live in front of our sights.

I'll discuss something about that in just a bit. Let's ha
ve a quick rundown first of the latest NBA and AI updates.

*****
It was a not-so-shocking and disappointing moment as the Denver Nuggets capped off their fourth win against the Dallas Mavericks, earning them a ticket towards the Western Conference Finals, awaiting the winner of the Lakers-Rockets series. Dirk Nowitski's 32 points weren't able to do as much to cap away from their 14-point deficit.

I was so much disappointed, due to the fact that I really hate the Nuggets(excluding Billups) because of their pathetic hardcourt attitude. I know that some of you share the same sentiment as I do.

Tomorrow we'll see if the Lakers and the Celtics can finish off their respective series prior to their conferences' finals.

*****
Sorry for the Danny Gokey fans, but he was the last one to be slashed off from American Idol, leaving Kris Allen and Adam Lambert for the final faceoff next week. Guess it was Danny's lousy dance moves that caused him his eviction, haha! Just kidding!

Come May 20, we'll have to embrace a new idol. I'm putting a grand for Adam Lambert. He's gonna be the next American Idol.


Yep, that's a bold prediction. :)

*****
Speaking of AI, this Saturday, the two Davids will shake the entire MoA Open Grounds as they'll perform in front of thousands of Filipinos for the much-awaited David VS David concert.

And I'm not just talking about any Davids out there. It's David Archuleta and David Cook people.

It's fun to know that a lot of Filipinos were going crazy and gaga over the Davids, myself included. There's something about these two Idols that makes the entire Philippines go frenzy for them- a testament to how huge they are already.

It's a good thing Mom reserved Titanium-class tickets for the 3 of us. Mom indeed has connections and the grands to go for it, haha!

Well, I certainly assure you peeps, it'll be all worth your buck.

For those who'll be watching the concert, I'll be seeing you this Saturday! ;)

*****
That's it for today's post. Hope to see you guys next time. :)

Hot Wednesday...

Alluring Eyes..

Current Mood: Just fine, hungry, tired, grr... XD
Song Playing: Nothing, haha! I'm listening to Boys' Night Out on the Magic

Good evening peeps! So much has happened(I believe) earlier, with the NBA Playoffs getting more exciting as the Semifinals for both conferences nears its end, and of course with AI having its final week before the faceoff.

So how was my day? Well, it's great. I hanged out a bit with my Puffy earlier at SM North Edsa and afterwards, at Eastwood. It was really fun being with him. :)

Alright, let's cap off with my usual updates.

*****
Let's have a lowdown on the NBA games that occurred earlier this morning(Eastern Time).

The Boston Celtics proved to everyone that they deserve being the defending champions after crushing Orlando Magic with a 4-point lead to claim their 3rd win in the series. Glen Davis was the top scorer for the game, providing 22 points for Boston, while Dwight Howard dominated the rebound boards with 17 rebounds.

Meanwhile, the L.A. Lakers bounced off from their last game after defeating a T-Mac and Yao-less Houston Rockets. The score: a one-sided 118-78. Kobe Bryant earned 26 points, with Aaron Brooks following with 12 points short.

The standing for both teams who won earlier: 3-2. Just one win away to continue their campaign towards their respective conferences' finals.

*****
I have a lot of things to say about AI, but since I can't just contain them in one post, let me take an article from AI's official site to do the detailed rundown instead.

It was man vs. man vs. man Tuesday on
American Idol as Danny Gokey, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert took the stage for the first all-guy semifinal in show history.

Some might call it the best Top Three ever. We're still bummed about losing Allison Iraheta last week, but at least each guy has had at least a moment or two over the course of season eight that won him passage to be here, performing on Idol's 300th episode.

With the count down to three, each fella was tasked with performing two songs, including a tune handpicked by the judges.

This year, during their hometown visits, each contestant found out via text message what Paula Abdul, the team of Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi, and Simon Cowell wanted him to sing. Danny may have never heard of the number Paula picked, but here's how he did...

Danny: We're puzzled as to why Paula picked yet another upbeat, punchy feel-good tune for Danny to sing (he's done a lot of those), but at least the lad redeemed himself from last week with his energetic vocal on Terence Trent d'Arby's "Dance Little Sister." Opting for some midsong scatting rather than an ill-conceived high note, he was great to listen to—and even watch, because we don't mind when he dances—from start to finish. "Let the games begin!" Randy announced. Kara praised Paula for keeping Danny's voice in the "money spot," but Simon found the dancing "a bit desperate."

• Smart, smart, smart choice for song No. 2. Danny is so much more likeable when he's just sitting there, singing form the heart, as he did with Joe Cocker's version of Billy Preston's "You Are So Beautiful." His falsetto was spot-on, so we finally got a little range going there, and overall, this tune helped beef up his résumé should he make it to the finale. "Everything you didn't do the first time, you just did...Stunning," Kara said. "You left all of us breathless," Paula said, while Simon called it a "vocal master class."

Kris: The beloved David Archuleta sang "Apologize" by One Republic last year, but...Oh, well. Plopped down at the piano, the fresh-faced surprise finalist (going on his initial impression way back when) turned in a perfectly serviceable rendition of the chart-topper. His vocal was lush and smooth, but it just a mirror version. Kara—who picked the song for him, along with Randy—called it a "competent performance," but thought he should've taken more chances. Hmmm... Of course, Simon then called Kara out for expecting Kris to do something extra special with their middling song choice.

• Hmmm, Danny just got a run for his money because Kris rose so high above the occasion...he managed to top Kanye West. His acoustic take on the rapper's "Heartless" was awesome—and Randy now prefers Kris' to the original version. The vocals were great, the beat was even better... Maybe we have short memories, but this put us in Kris' camp for the opportunity to sing it out against Adam. Reitering his earlier opinion about Kara and Randy's "lame" choice, Simon said that he had written Kris out after performance No. 1. "That, however, has all changed," he concluded.

Adam: Way to work those U.K. connections, Simon. The Brit secured Bono's blessing for Adam to wail on U2's "One"...and the glamfab finalist, true to form, wailed like a pro. His performance brought tears to our eyes--admittedly due in part to the awesomeness of the song, but also because of the sweet, sweet timbre of his voice. Adam probably didn't need to delve into Freddie Mercury territory on this mellow classic, but it was still a completely polished, entirely pleasing performance. Simon deemed it "a brilliant, brilliant performance. If you're not in the final, it will be one of the biggest upsets."

• Television—not to mention the wee CBS soundstage—is too small for Adam Lambert. Dude needs an arena. Taking on one of his own idols (and perhaps showing Danny up a bit), he bit into Aerosmith's "Cryin'" with that incomparable level of assurance that makes him a performer you take interest in every second he's up there, doing his thing. "You're one of the best that we've ever had on this stage," Randy said. Kara remained in awe of Adam's high notes, Paula mixed her metaphors and Simon offered this public service announcement: "It's very easy to assume you're going to sail through to the finale...but people shouldn't assume, they should vote...You deserve to be there."

Whew, what a night! One of the guys will be eliminated tomorrow night, whether you're ready to let him go or not.

*****

Alright, that's it for today's post. See ya' tomorrow! :)

Before I drive... Again, haha!

Yup, I'm on the driver's seat :)

Good aftie everyone! It's a hot Tuesday afternoon isn't it? My, it's so freaking humid it makes me wanna go to the shower almost 3 times a day. Well, I guess we just have to be patient enough since this season's nearing its end to make way for the rainy blues.

How was my day yesterday? Well, it was all good. I visited my cousins at Bel Air, Makati and it was really great. My aunt kasi just got home last Saturday and she invited me to come over for a special dinner with Mom and Dad, but since they're busy and with my 3 other siblings having an awkward mood, well I went there all by myself to snatch all the fun, haha!


Later on I'll be driving again. I have to go to Trinoma to buy some stuff there. :)

Alright, nuff' with that. Let's fire away some up-in-a-minute NBA updates and other things out there.

Cleveland fans you can scream your heads off right now. Yep, they made a complete sweep after adding their fourth and most spectacular win over the Atlanta Hawks with a score of 84-74 in the former's favor. As usual, Lebron James dominated the scoreboards together with Atlanta's Josh Smith, scoring 27 and 26 points respectively. Now they are heading towards the Eastern Conference Finals to face the winner of the Celtics-Magic series.

Meanwhile, in the Western Conference, the Dallas Mavericks delivered a huge upset after defeating the Denver Nuggets with a slight 2-point lead. Dirk Nowitski is the main scorer for the game, making an impressive 44 points for that game. The big question for the Mavs is, can they pull off yet another win against a rampaging Nuggets?

That we'll see this Thursday morning, Eastern Time.

*****
Speaking of the Nuggets, I've read an article on the net telling that a scuffle occurred between the Mavs' owner Mark Cuban and Denver Nuggets' Kenyon Martin.

For those who do not know Kenyon Martin, he's the one with the no. 4 jersey in Denver, being their PF(Power Forward). He was known to some hardcourt fans as K-Mart.

The article says that Mark Cuban approached Kenyon's mother, who was watching his son's game near the Nuggets' bench that the Denver Nuggets' players are all thugs, including Kenyon and excluding Billups. This caused Kenyon to go irate and release a bold statement, telling that he does not need to go all the way through this media frenzy, but he'll "take care" of things his own way.

My.. That's such a threat. That just proves Martin's real attitude outside the court.

And apparently, that's what I hate with most of the Nuggets. Most of them act like they're demigods or something, most notably Carmelo, who acts as if he's someone larger than life or probably, than Kobe and Jordan.

Can you please just drop those stupid nuances and act like real players? I'm assuring you, that attitude will bring the team to jeopardy if ever, or more probably, hinder them from reaching the finals.

As for Mark Cuban, I think he made a mistake telling such a remark to Kenyon's mom. Let the players do the stuff, don't involve yourself too much if you know you'll trample other people.

Hai.. Nuff' with that. Let's move on.

Regarding the Rihanna nude photos, Chris Brown's side released a statement telling that he's not responsible for the leakage of the pics.

I don't think so..

There are 3 things about this ample scandal:
1. It could be that someone hacked or stole Rihanna's pics from her phone or PC and uploaded it somewhere.
2. She got a scuffle with a close friend whom she entrusted those pics, causing the latter to leak it. Or:
3. ...Chris Brown leaked them in order to get back at Rihanna.

That's my assumptions regarding the leakage. As of now, Rihanna's camp requests the sites who posted them to take them down immediately.

I think this is too much. It is much degrading in Rihanna's part.

I guess the plot just continue to thickens as time passes.

That's it for today's post. Thank you so much for reading my blog. Hope to see you guys next time. Bye! :)



New Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen trailer

Quickie Post :)

The picture above was taken yesterday when we went to Tagaytay. Sentimental? Haha!

Good aftie dear bloggers. As the title says, this post will be quite quick, since I'll be driving to Makati later this afternoon.

So, without any further ado, let me fire away.

*****
Since I was unable to give some NBA updates this weekend, permit me to do so.

Yesterday, Cleveland proved to Atlanta that they have the edge within the series despite the latter's homecourt advantage as they demolished the Hawks once more with an impressive score of 97-82. Lebron James dominated the statistic
s board as he made 34 points and 10 rebounds for the game, posting a 3-0 standing. Meanwhile, the Nuggets remained superior against the Mavericks, defeating them in their 3rd game with a 1 point lead, having the same standing as the Cavaliers.

As for LA and Houston, the series has been tied to 2-2 after the Rockets displayed an explosive performance in the game, crushing the Lakers with a 13 point lead. Aaron Brooks of the Rockets dominated the scoreboard, with Pau Gasol of the Lakers following with 4 points short. The Celtics did the same as with Houston, effectiv
ely defeating their counterparts(Orlando Magic) with a 95-94 win, tying the series to 2 a piece as well.

There you go. Your quickie NBA updates. :)

Last Saturday, I found something that shocked me up.

Apparently, a blog site posted some leaked nude pictures of Rihanna. At first I though that they were fake. However, after observing the pictures carefully, I realized that it's truly her, given her figure and facial qualities.

God, this will be a rough year for her. After suffering a s
evere beatdown from Chris Brown following an altercation and with all the court drama, now she has to explain all these.

Guess we have to assume that the culprit behind all these is none other than Chris Brown. Of course, most exes' way to get back at their girl after an altercation is to, obviously, post their nude pictures somewhere on the net.

So much for the drama..

*****
About that Techie Blog that I mentioned in one of my posts, me and my Puffy Yuri decided to drop that in favor of a new blog that will feature a novel in the works. The two of us shared ideas with regards to the story, and right now we're down to 13 chapters.

We'll be creating the blog weeks from now. Don't worry though, we'll keep you posted. :)

So, that's it for this post. Thanks for following my blog. Have a great week everybody!

To A Mom, From Her Princess..

Yeah, she's the best mom ever..


Since tomorrow will be Mother's Day, I would like to take this ample opportunity to thank the biggest influence in my life and probably one of the greatest reasons to smile.

My Mom..

She inspired me in every single point of my life. She became an unwavering light upon my path, my very best friend, and the one I can truly come to in the very end.

Let me recall an excerpt from my childhood days. I was still a tomboyish girl back then. I never cared whenever I hurt myself while playing with my friends. At the end of the day, I'll suddenly cry in anguish, remembering how painful the wounds that I took. Mom would then approach me, tend my wounds and say, "Minsan kasi mahalin mo naman sarili mo." (Sometimes you have to love yourself.)

Yah. I always tend to forget that. Mom keeps me in check whenever I have that certain tendency of mine.

I also recall that time when I was so depressed because of my failed relationship with Rei. I was alone, crying so much in my room when Mom suddenly came in. She hugged me tight and told me, "There are a lot of reasons to stop crying and smile."

She's right. Dead right. I'm just so stupid as a daughter to forget those things. I always make mistakes and I think I've disappointed my whole family as well when it comes to academics and other stuff, assuming in my part that they expect so much from me because I'm the first-born of the family. But yet Mom never showed any signs of disappointment or anger. Instead she would give a simple remark, telling that it's just okay.

"God gives everyone a second chance. No matter how you fall, just try to stand up. I'll be there to extend my hand for you, simply because I love you."

Yeah, that was an excerpt from my Mom's graduation letter in High School. Yup, she never fails to pick me up whenever I fall.

Thank you so much Mom! Probably, you and Dad were the greatest gifts God gave to me. You'll be always here in my heart. I love you so much! :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Kisses and Hugs! >=(",)=<

More NBA Updates :)

Good evening everyone! Alright, let's have a quick rundown of the latest NBA updates. :)

Earlier this morning(Philippine time), the
Cleveland Cavaliers dispatched their conference semifinals counterparts so easily by duking an impressive 105-85 win over the demoralized Atlanta Hawks. Lebron James contributed 27 points for the team, with Andre Varejao following by 8 points.

However, West was taken out of the game af
ter suffering a serious eye injury during the third quarter of the game. But as likely as it seems, it did not affect the Cavs' impressive perfomance against a seemingly powerless Atlanta. As of late, the series is now 2-0, in favor of Cleveland. Their next game will be this Saturday(American time), with the Hawks gaining the hometown advantage.

Meanwhile, tomorrow the Boston Celtics will face Orlando Magic within the latter's homecourt, while the Lakers will face the Rockets at Houston for their respective third games in the series. This Sunday, Dallas will duke it out
once more against Denver, with the latter having the homecourt advantage.

That's it for my NBA updates. Hope to see you around tomorrow. Bye!

Do you love how I look? Haha!

Stormy Thursday.. (oh, it's my 100th post already!)

Letting Kriselle browse the net with my laptop :)

Current Mood: Cozy and Lazy
Song Playing: Touch My Hand by: David Archuleta

Yah, it's my 100th post here in Blogger. Cheers to that! :) Let us wish for more posts and followers to come!

A good day fellow bloggers! Today's quite rainy due to the impending arrival of Typhoon Emong. I believe most summer classes(and some regular classes)
were cancelled already due to the storm. My dad's about to go home already as well. He just gave me a call saying that they have abruptly cancelled all their work for today because of Emong.

So much for this storm. Let me fire away some updates with regards to AI and NBA.

*****
Hours earlier, Alisson Iraheta was voted off from American Idol after belting out an electric rendition of "Cry Baby" last Tuesday night.

It was a complete shocker to say the least. Everyone was expecting Danny Gokey to be slashed out of the competition but instead, it was Alisson who took the heart-breaking dismissal.

Guess those performances by Daughtry, No Doubt and an idol-stage debuting Paula Abdul were unable to hide the eventual conclusion for today's elimination night.

The remaining Idol hopefuls are Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and Danny Gokey. For next week, they'll be performing 2 songs- one of their choice and the other one being the judges' pick. I say, you have to hold on to AI simply because of the fact that the next elimination night will determine who will face each other for the exciting finale of American Idol. The next Idol then will be crowned come May 20.

Things are getting more exciting as ever in AI.

*****
As for the NBA, the Boston Celtics pulled off an impressive upset after belting out an amazing 114-94 win over Orlando Magic just hours earlier. Guess that just proves the fact that the Celtics' defense over the crown isn't over yet.

Meanwhile, the LA Lakers did the same thing, bouncing back from their earlier loss through an 111-98 win over the Houston Rockets. The next game for these two teams will be held at Houston's Toyota Center.

This year's Playoffs are getting more exciting. Well, guess we have to stick to NBA even further as the Finals are about to come weeks from now.

*****
That's it for this post. Keep it locked in to Princess Journal for more NBA and AI updates. See ya!


Bored....

Getting ready..


Current Mood: Bored... Unlike yesterday.
Song Playing: The Climb

Good evening everyone! I was unable to get touch with my PC yesterday, due to the fact that I prepared myself for my High School batchmate's debut, plus the fact that I have to help her as well with the proceedings. I'm the hostess kasi. :) Well, it was a great party. Almost all of my fourth year classmates attended the said party. It's one of those rare moments where all of your friends make it a point to catch up with everyone. It was just awesome.

Anyway, so much has happened lately. Let's get to them right away. :)

*****
I just wanna congratulate Lebron James for grabbing the MVP for this year's NBA season. Yep, King James just proved to everyone that he is poised alongside with his teammates to reach the desired championship crown.

Now that the first round of the playoffs are over, let us have a quick recap of what just happened within the start of the Conference Semifinals:

Eastern Conference:
Cleveland- 1
Atlanta- 0

Orlando- 1
Boston- 0

Western Conference:
L.A. Lakers- 0
Houston- 1

Dallas- 0
Denver- 2

Seems that the Lakers have gone through a bumpy start together with Dallas, who suffered 2 losses from a defiant Denver Nuggets. Boston was welcomed with a hard remark, as Orlando demolished the defending champs with a five-point lead last Monday, while everything seemed quite easy for Cleveland after grabbing a 99-72 win over Atlanta.

Well, let's just say that things are just getting started for all the remaining participants for this year's playoffs.

*****
Moments ago, I found this two bizaare news articles about gaming. Let me share them to you:

1. A Shanghai-based gamer(let me name him Qiu) lent an in-game item called Dragon Saber to his gamer friend(let's call him Zyu.). However, Qiu discovered that Zyu sold the item to a fellow gamer during a PVP session. That prompted Qiu to report the in-game incident to the police. However, they just ridiculed him. In a desperate(and crazy) attempt, Qiu approached Zyu in his house and stabbed him directly in the chest, killing him.

Zyu's parents pushed through with their search for justice, giving Qiu a suspended death sentence.

God.. That kid's probably insane. He killed someone just for that in-game item? That's so pathetic.

2. A European female World of Warcraft gamer made a shoutout in the game that she wants to get hold of a large sum of gold from anyone. In exchange, she will make love with those who are willing enough to share that sum of gold.

However, it seemed that she got the gold, but no one got her.

That's it for my bizaare gaming news. How about you? Do you have a bizaare gaming news to share?

*****
It seems that everybody has forgotten the H1N1 virus in favor of Manny's victory over Hatton. I guess his big win just relieved us of the horrors of this threat temporarily.

The big question is: Do we have to be alarmed of it?

The answer, as always, is an obvious YES.

As of late, this virus has already entered some parts of Asia, most notably HK and Taiwan, which means that it might just spread among other parts of this continent.

I just hope that the health authorities will make precautionary measures against the H1N1 virus, before everything ends in a wide-scale crisis.

*****
That's about it for today's post. Thanks everyone! See ya. :)

I am Trustworthy?

I don't know if it's true. It's up to you if you'll believe it. Good evening! :)


You Are Level-Headed and Trustworthy



You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.

You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hu
ndred tries.

You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.



You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.

And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.

You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.



You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.

You have the classic "Type A" personality.

Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.

Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.



You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.



You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.



You are confident, self assured,
and capable. You are not easily intimidated.

You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.

You are deeply philosophical and thoughtful. You tend to analyze every aspect o

You are intuitive, brilliant, and quite introverted. You value your time alone.

Often times, you are grumpy with other people. You don't appreciate them trying to interfere in your affairs.



You are truly an original pe
rson. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.

Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.

Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.



You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.

You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

Well, do you think the description above's quite true? Haha! So how was my day? Let's just say that this week started a little bit boring as opposed last Monday. Guess all the excitement and the tenacity that I've felt were all been eaten up by the Pacquiao Vs Hatton bout, haha!

I don't know if you feel the same way as I do, but I'm a bit oversaturated already hearing nothing on radio and on TV but Manny's flawless victory over his opponent yesterday. I know, I know, we should be glad for this but the fact is, people will eventually get tired of this, knowing that the same news and topic goes all over and over again. I may sound a bit hypocrite there but what I'm saying is quite true, isn't it?

But on the bright side, I guess it just shows how we Filipinos are appreciative of what he has done for our nation. Let's just bear with that, and perhaps celebrate with all the other Filipinos out there. After all, Manny deserves all these media props and accolades.

Oh well...

*****
It's funny how these celebrities who are present for that fight reacted through their tweets in Twitter.

One notable celebrity was Mariah Carey. Her tweets about the fight said that "This is quite violent, I can't even know what to say.", and that it was "Unbelievable"- referring to Pacquiao's awesome victory.

It's just so cool and hilarious- in a way -to read how these famous celebrities responded about the fight through their Twitter accounts. Guess it's the first time they've seen how powerful and electrifying Pacman could be, wasn't it?

To sum it all up, we showed everyone how powerful Filipinos can be..

*****
That's it for today's post. Thanks for reading. See ya!

Holiday for a Sunday.. :)

I miss my long hair... *Sigh..

Yah, I really do miss my long hair, haha! Good evening everyone!

I guess the entire Philippines exclaims in joy right now as Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao stopped time itself in a decisive knockout win over Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton. It was a complete shocker, given the fact that everyone's expecting for a good fight. Guess Hatton underestimated the Filipino power. Cheers for that!

Since it's quite unrelative if I discuss something else today, let us pass from those "other" things and talk about.. well... boxing and Manny himself, haha!

*****
It's a good thing we have the Solar All-Access channel on our TV. It made us avoid the hassles and the annoyances brought by GMA-7's coverage of the bout.

Here's what I hate about these VHF channels when they cover a big event like this: a bunch of senseless commercials.

I mean, cmon. They eat up the time being spent by the actual fight, plus the fact that it delays big time the supposed-to-be "live" coverage of the event, thus making those who are unable to catch in on an exclusive channel like Solar All-Access and those who can't even afford to watch the fight on a theater/closed stadium/bar/restaurant think that a 36-min. fight lasted over 4 gruelling hours of stupid airtime.

Well, you can't just blame them. Since they are sponsoring Pacquiao for this fight, we're left with no choice but to be patient enough for these commercial ads.

So much for that..

*****
It's a star-studded night for Mandalay Bay Arena as known artists, celebrities, sports figures and even fellow boxers graced the 20,000+ audience for the Pacquiao-Hatton bout.

We can assume that most of them weren't a boxing fan at all, but after Pacquiao made a huge mark on the scene, it just seemed that they were curious enough to see how Manny Pacquiao deals with a fight and why he was able to reach the pinnacle of his boxing career.

The known figures who are present for that bout include Jack Nicholson, Jay-Z, P.Diddy, Mariah Carey, Adam Sandler, Kobe Bryant, and a lot more.

It's also cool to know that WWE superstar and fellow Filipino Dave Batista made it a point to join Pacquiao's entourage prior to his entry to the ring. What's funny was that I thought that Manny asked Batista to join his entourage in order to give Hatton a debilitating Spinebuster, or a Batista Bomb perhaps, haha!

Guess that's how popular Pacquiao already is.

Anyway, what's noticeable is the huge number of Brits that were present earlier for the fight. According to most estimates, almost 25,000 Brits flew over to US for the event. Unfortunately, an estimated 15,000 Brits made it inside Mandalay Bay Arena.

Yup, I know. We are clearly the underdogs in the numbers game.

I guess that simply nails down the fact that most of these Brits have the grands to watch a PPV like this, as opposed to us Filipinos.

Somehow you'll ask yourself, "Grabe, ganito na ba tayo kahirap?"

At least, I know deep inside that even if most of us Filipinos don't have the grands to board a plane for the bout, we'll always find a way to support our hero in a manner that is comparable to a live PPV experience.

That's how strong the Filipino spirit can be.

*****

For those who are unable to catch up the fight, let me post the entire main event here. :)

It's clearly a one-sided affair between two great boxers. No doubt that both of them are talented fighters but that doesn't change the fact that Manny definitely is the greatest fighter of this era. Probably, we can say that he's the best boxer of all time.

From the very beginning of the match, it is quite noticeable that Hatton is up for an unfathomable challenge: He is the weaker of the two. He is much slower, uncoordinated and rough unlike Manny, who just completed the phases of becoming a true boxer.

Let us discuss the factors that brought Hatton to his second defeat:

1. Absence of fight plan for the bout. It seemed that the Hatton who fought against Manny was the Hatton who fought Mayweather and those other fighters before. Nothing's entirely new. He fought the fight his own way, abandoning his 2-month training under Mayweather Sr. If there's a fight plan, surely, we could've seen something unexpected or new from the Hitman, but then again, it all seemed that he did not prepared for Manny.
2. Conflict between Ricky and his trainer. It was reported a day before the fight that Hatton unexpectedly weren't in good terms with Mayweather Sr. That further ignited my point above perhaps. We could theorize that this was caused by differences in some viewpoints regarding their fight plan. This same reason might caused Mayweather Sr.'s bad blood with his boxer son.

I don't need to discuss the factors behind Manny's big time win, haha! I'm pretty sure everyone knows those reasons.

Guess Mayweather Sr. ate up all of his words, haha!

*****
Alright, that's it for this post. Hope you liked this one. Let us celebrate this time for Manny's victory. Cheers everyone!

Three Stars and A Sun!

Till' next time dear bloggers, bye. :)

Saturday Saturday Saturday....

In my mom's room.. :)

Current Mood Last Night: Just fine..
Song Playing Last Night: Blame It

Good morning dear bloggers! Yep, today is the day folks. Minutes from now we will be witnessing the clash between the Pacman and the Hitman in a gruelling 36-min. fight that would determine a lot of things for these 2 fighters.

Anyway, so how was my Saturday? Well, actually we visited our house here in Batasan, Q.C. It's fun reminiscing those old times. We lived here kasi till' I became a 4-yr. old kid. So there. We stayed here last night, while bonding it up with some of our relatives including my close cousins. After we finish the Pacquiao-Hatton fight, probably we would leave to return to Alabang.

And those were the days..

*****
Minutes from now we will bear witness to a brutal reckoning between two of the world's greatest fighters, with one goal in mind- to prove that they are the best.

Indeed, it would be proven later as our very own Manny Pacquiao would take on Ricky Hatton for the Welterweight Belt and for the much coveted Pound for Pound title.

3 things will be proven tonight:
1. One's power to touch a million lives.
2. The mentor's ability to give their foster sons the particular wisdom they need to stand up high in the end of it.
3. The fighter's will and strengths to claim his deserved glory.

Best of luck to you Manny! I know that you can do it! Be proud of the Filipino Spirit everyone!

Three Stars and A Sun! :)

*****
Me and my Puffy Yuri have this small deal.

Instead of making a podcast for my blog, we will create a new blog that the two of us will manage. Obviously, it'll be a tech blog. We'll try to create this new blog as soon as possible. :)

I'll update you with that, don't you worry!

*****
That's it for this morning's post. Let us cheer for Manny and be proud of our Filipino Heritage. Once again, Three Stars and A Sun!
