Let's resched


Introducing..... Harold Camping!!! *applause*
<<<<<<<<<

"You and I are living at the time of the end of the world. There's going to be a big earthquake that will make the one in Japan seem like a Sunday school picnic," Camping said. (Read full article here)

Mr. Camping here, announced that rapture would happen on May 21. And he put up about 1,200 billboards to warn us all.

But unfortunately, Harry (can I call you Harry, or you prefer Old?) realized that he counted 5 months early. Wow, and I thought I sucked at math..

Anyways as of today, his latest "hunch" is that the world would be consumed by a fireball on October 21, 2011.

Camping...said he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true. (Read it here)

WHAT THE F*CK?!?!?! I mean misleading the world is one thing, but feeling bad that the world is safe is just so freakin' unacceptable!! I know you're humiliated (you should be!) and you probably wanna melt into non-existence now but you seriously have to sort out your values 'cause you're humiliating 200 million Christians with your bad math.

"Smart" card?

Last May 1, public transportation drivers received a fuel smart card from the government. The Public Transport Assistance Program (PTAP), or “Pantawid Pasada" program is said to cover more than 210,000 jeepneys nationwide.

According to Energy Secretary Jose Rene D. Almendras, each smart card would be pre-loaded with P1,050, equivalent to a fuel assistance of P35 per day for one whole month. (Read the news article here.)

My question is, bakit di na lang binigay sa fuel companies yung pera para maibaba nila yung presyo ng fuel? That way, everyone would benefit, public and private drivers. I mean instead of spending money on printing the smart cards, they could've just used the money on something else! And how can we be sure that all of the program budget was actually spent on the program (if you know what I mean)??

I'm not a political person. Pero sa tingin ko, dapat mas pinagisipan pa tong program na to.

The Starbucks Effect

First of all, I.LOVE.SBUX. The sensation of Chocolate Cream Chip frappe dancing on my tastebuds...... Ooooohhh.... (Ok I want one NOW!!!)

But honestly, most people only buy Starbucks so they can change their profile pictures. People wait for payday or the 50% off promo, wait in a looooong line, hold up their coffees (make sure to show the Sbux logo), click and upload!! They don't care if a tall frappe costs about Php 150.00.

I have nothing against these people because I've done the same before(well,just the photoshoot part). Apparently most Filipinos believe that they're somehow "in" and "sosyal" if they're seen sipping from a Starbucks cup.

Wind beneath my skirt.


Ok so we're not as hot as Marilyn Monroe in her skirt feat. Personally, I don't really wear skirts, but I adore them.

From a not-always-on-a-skirt point of view, here are some...uhm opinions on girls who do wear them all the time:

1. I think you should wear either a pair of tight shorts or hosiery underneath it. Especially if you're not really comfortable showing your legs.

2. Do not wear light and flowy skirts (as shown in the image) if you're gonna take the bus and walk to work. It will just get blown by the wind, and you'll just end up holding it down all throughout your walk. Which, by the way, looks really, really awkward.

3. Do not wear pencil-cut skirts that are too tight around your legs. You would look like a mummy trying to walk.

4. Do not wear mini-skirts and micros if you're just gonna pull them down to avoid showing "too much". Just wear what you can pull off.

5. If you're gonna wear a mini-skirt, I think you should not pair it with a low-neckline top. That's leaving nothing to imagination.

Well you don't have to listen to someone who doesn't wear skirts LOL.. Just a share of thoughts. :)

"iPhone, please forgive me for I have sinned."

I'm guessing many of you heard about the Confession iPhone app already.

Faith has never been as portable as this! According to Apple, the app is "Designed to be used in the confessional, this app is the perfect aid for every penitent." (Read more...)




Ok so this is how it works:
"It leads you through an "Examination of Conscience" to help you figure out what your real sins are -- and not just by retreading your run of the mill 10 Commandments. The sinful suggestions the app offers are inventive and even age appropriate. If you are worried about all your personal sins being viewed in cyberspace, fear not -- the app customizes each user's list and is password protected for privacy. Once you go to confession, your nefarious revelations are wiped away.

...You still have to go to a priest for absolution. The app simply attempts to make confession more accessible."

Nothing to worry about, this iPhone app is LEGIT. It has been sanctioned by Pope Benedict XVI himself. (Seriously! Read everything here.)

So log on to iTunes and get it now! For only $1.99, be washed clean of your sins anytime, anywhere!!


Note: This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad. :)

Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton)



What?! They've been singing since 2000?? How can I not know about them?!

YES!!!

YES TO RH BILL!

FACT: The RH Bill seeks to legalize family planning methods such as condoms, birth control pills and IUDs.

PROs say:
"The RH Bill is definitely pro-life. Aside from reducing the number of pre-terminated pregnancies and deaths and injuries of mothers and infants in backyard abortion operations, the RH Bill will also curb the skyrocketing HIV/AIDS cases in the Philippines." -Buddy Cunanan

ANTIs say:
"Corruption, lack of education, and lack of opportunity cause poverty. The poor are victims of poverty, not the cause of poverty. Sa NO to RH bill!" -Erwin Mark Mata

My personal take:
I'm PRO RH Bill. It's not just about morality now. Hindi lang dahil anti-religion ako, pero the church is out of line here. I'm pretty sure din naman na catholics yang mga PROs e. Maging practical lang sana tayo. Masyado ng madami ang tao sa Pilipinas! Kung kaya niyong buhayin e di go! Pero kung hindi but you wanna have fun or make love to your partner, dapat may legal options kayo. I believe na karapatan ng tao yun. Tsaka, make it legal or not, people will still find access to contraceptives dahil hindi lang naman sa Pinas meron nyan.

As far as I know, about 80% of Filipinos already use these birth control/ family planning methods. So para sakin, there's really no point in saying No to something that is already being practiced.

Rrrreeeddd!!


RED NAILS - YES


According to online articles and blogs, red nails are a big YES. They go with almost any color, any style, any season. Looks formal, yet chic.










RED LIPS - NO


According to this post, red lips make you look unkissable. Red lips are an easy way to make you look sexy but!!... If you use the wrong shade of red, it won't compliment your outfit and skin color. Thus, making you look tacky.

Super.......man?


Uuhh.. No thanks, I can save myself.

Charice


Charice sang the Philippine National Anthem on the Pacquiao/Mosley fight.
Good thing she didn't belt it out or changed the tune. Applause!!!

Judas


I don't think the lyrics are religious at all. Neither anti nor pro. But the video was obviously made to catch attention and controversy.

Nonetheless, another hit by Lady Gaga!

Hermes


Mommy D's Birthday/Mother's day wish?


A Hermes bag


If you're wondering what a Hermes bag looks like, here it is:




You think its worth P1M?

Swept me off my feet


BREAKING NEWS: Lakers got swept, 4-0

And I meant that literally, it was BREAKING. My favorite team fell and they fell hard.

I was expecting a 3-peat. I was expecting Kobe Bryant to win another Finals MVP. Or at least one win against the Mavs.

As an avid Lakers fan, I'm more than devastated with how it all turned out. But unless he retires, I would still be screaming "Koooobbbeee!!!" and "Gooo Lakers!!!" next season.

Hello there!

Note: I looked at the camera when I said "Hello"

Anyways, this is MY blog. Repository of MY random and very subjective thoughts that are not too sensitive to share with the public..

In layman's terms: I just wanna blog ok? I just have so much going on in my head. No need for harsh feedback.
