the BROUHAHA of meeting d RNB Superstar Ne-yo

panu ba to nagsimula... well im a contest addict, wherin if there's a promo ill be more than sure that ive already joined that, one of the best things i enjoyed most when i have free time is surfing through my cp.. then when i saw that smart has this Neyo promo of course i clicked right away, downloaded a song with no extra cost(i know some tricks that's why) but never had i expected of anything. so after im done with school that day, i went home directly, ride a trycycle, then a jeepney,, to my surprise i received a phone call in which the number that appears on my phone was 7777 i was stunned by that, i answered the phone.. then learned that i had just won a vip concert ticket to watch neyo himself and not only that to meet and greet him personally, i'm lost with words... then there came the claiming of the ticket which i must say is a very tasking thing to do, why not just hand it over to me the concert night itself,, well anyways no time to argue... i had to claim so did i.... and the most awaited time, the time to hear him live and to shake hands and greet him in person. we arrived a little early, ooops i forgot to mention i was accompanied by my cousin..che.. then we were instructed to enter the south gate of the colliseum bcoz the vips' will be entering that way but to my excitement we accidenatlly entered the wrong gate, then there comes the conflict, as i contacted the person incharged of the meet ups. he told me were not anymore meeting neyo.. ofcourse i have to make kulit to him,, and eventually have me and my companion go to the meet up area,, but of course there's a trick since we entered the wrong gate we have to make it up to other way possible... so the coordinator himself coordinated with the security of araneta to let us use the vip way, in which neyo himself had his way with... whhappak ... vip na vip talaga... yess... we were now given designated passes, we were roomed in an area that was composed of merely 30-40 privileged people,, we waited for about 2 hours just to meet him,, ofcourse security measures were very accurate that time no cams no cp and everything and the thing is we can only shake hands with him once,,, for 5 second only... then there goes neyo, when it came our turn i shook hand with him right away and tell him that he is so popular at school(as requested by my super classmates) and he says thanks and keep on supporting him. then thats it we were escorted to our designated seats aswell and watch his 40-minuter concert.. a lot of brouhaha but the bottomline is,, it's worth the wait, and it pays to be patient and to be addict... hahaha

8 Dream Destinations.....

Here's the list of the places i wanted to visit in 10 years span....

I am not the travel-type of person, to be honest i never ride a plane yet. I am always within the vicinity of Metro Manila or of my province of Aurora. I listed 8 because if i do more than that that might be impossible to be achieved already.

Bon Voyage!


* i don't know i just simply love to visit this place, boasting its good resume.... it seems like the place is very serene, very peaceful. Something like you can recollect. I have always been interested in meeting the most-hospitable Ivatans and have experience living in their Ivatan House. A friend of mine went there, and i am jealous to death, he described Batanes as "Parang New Zealand, kulang nalang maraming Baka," he had pics of them on the top of the mountains and must i say Batanes is Very Captivating.


* i would simply like to visit and roam around the Great Wall of China.. and one more thing i want to learn using chop sticks...and i wanted to aswell check if they've got some fake stuff being sold on the market...


* i am easily affected by cold weather, but i prefer being on cold places.. One of the things that interests me most about Norway, is that, the Aurora Borealis is visible in this place, so i wanna check it out.


* i would like to see how animals are so free to roam around in this city. I don't know there is something about this place which is very inviting, and that's what i have to find out.


* philippines and mexico have a lot in common, but the main reason why i want to visit the place is because of TACOS, i would like to taste the orignal tacos, it must be delicious. and of course, mexico is as well the home of some of the most beautiful people in the world.


* one of my best friends back at school is from Cameroon. He is very nice and speaks French fluently, so one of these years i want to visit this place, and exprience more of it. and according to some descriptions Cameroon is "Africa in miniature" because it exhibits all major climates and vegetation of the continent: coast, desert, mountains, rainforest, and savanna," and that is something for me.


* i am presently working for an Australian Telecommunication company based here in the Philippines, but prior to that i have always dreamt of living in Australia, because based on my peception, this place is very accomodating. Simple yet exudes natural beauty, and the cost of living is very affordable..HOPE MY TOURIST VISA will SOON BE APPROVED. keeping my fingers crossed.


* this place for me is a surprise, i never imagined i would be this interested to this place, btw i was watching Pinoy Meets World at GMA 7, when it caught my fancy. This place is diverse, unique, sincere, antique,, i don't know how to desribe how i perceived it. But one thing's for sure i would EAT alot of SWISS chocolates when i reach this wonderful destination. Watches, milk, beer, people smiling, it's neighboring Euro countries, are just some of the reasons why this is my top destination on my mind...

Hope this dream would transpire to reality.....


--- ang pa- tweetums na VAMPIRE..

this is probably the simplest movie i've ever watched, i love love this movie. I haven't read the book yet or have any idea bout this "so pop novel" i even hesitated to watch the movie coz im afraid i might not be able to appreciate it, but due to encouragement of those who were able to read the novel, i did. I was with my ex- girlfriend when we attended the special screening of TWIGHLT, sponsored by NOKIA Philippines at Greenbelt Cinema 1.

I was expecting major scenes from the movie, having heard that it is comparable to Harry Potter, but instead it showcase a very light story, simple yet WELL EXECUTED scenes. The pacing is a little slow, but it was well edited. There are no great Special Effects, i supposed it doesn't really need one.

There are a lot of scenes that would make you "kilig," one of which is when they went on top of the mountain and laid on the grass, they are looking each other passionately. Another is when, Edward and Bella went to school, Edward wearing sunglasses, everyone stared and was amassed of what they saw.

Overall, This is the PERFECT DATE MOVIE, and believe me you must watch it, with your special someone. It's like you will just watch it together holding hands and treasuring every "kilig scenes."

Two Thumbs Up//


finally i was able to see one of my really really favorite bands of all time, and take note, malapitan yata yun, here's how it goes, i went to Mellow947 fm to claim some stuff then nung paglabas ko sakto nagkakagulo yun pala andun sa Campus995 fm(neighbors lang sila) then i went there but picture taking was restricted kaya puro pangit na shots nagawa ko, then i went directly to podium for their autograph signing, cool ang gulo gulo pero ang saya, there were available chairs, pero nobody wanted to sit instead we step onto that and started taking pictures but the bouncers and all the crew were a little tight eh, but all in all sobrang worth it talaga,.. i think its better kesa na cocert xe if concert you are far and you wont see their faces really atleast this time i saw them too close... see pics at the pics sections...


Chowking's.......d WORST service ever...

very disgusting and poor service that's what you'll experience when you dine in at this restaurant, i had this experience some couple of days now.. i was so hungry to death that whatever is currently available I'll order it, so i ordered Pork Charsiu, i made my order at around 11:57am and i was bound to wait for it... it was fine that it'll be delay for some 10-15 minutes but the thing is it took them 50 minutes to serve my meal.... and so since i was hungry i never manage to lament anymore what irked me more is that they have not serve the drinks that must be served to me...... i followed it up, and they served it after i finished the meal and it took them 10 minutes to do that, they can't say that they are serving a lot of customer as i can count from my fingers how many are we.... the preparation of the meal itself is a lot way disgusting as there has been a lot of cooking oil on the plate and the egg has been darkened by deep frying...... the following day i contacted the manager and lamented about it,, apologies won't never be enough to fill the lost respects i used to have for this restaurant

Jason Mraz makes history with 71-week chart run

Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" may be the longest running song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but the hippie-friendly jam has been around even longer.

Mraz has played the song on tour for five years, and he said fans at live shows always responded differently to it, inspiring him to release the song as a single.

"The song was really born into the crowd. ... I noticed almost an immediate response to it and people really celebrated in a different way during that song," he said in a phone interview. "And then by having those three years to jam to the song, it gave us the opportunity to do something simple, yet spirited" in the studio.

"And now of course, that we've been playing with people really owning it on the record, it's taken it to a whole new level," he said.

"I'm Yours" first charted in May 2008, hit No. 6 in September 2008 and has spent 71 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart. (The previous record-holder, LeAnn Rimes' late-1990s hit, "How Do I Live," lasted 69 weeks.) Mraz's tune also nominated for "Song of the Year" at this year's Grammy Awards.

Though the accomplishment is one the 32-year-old is proud of, he says it doesn't mean he's necessarily reached a milestone in his career.

"I don't feel like I crossed a finish line. I don't feel like I've sweated for 70 weeks. I feel like the song is just doing its thing and it was a real gift," he said.

Mraz has spent the last two years on the road promoting his latest CD, the platinum-selling "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things." That time on tour has been documented to "Jason Mraz' Beautiful Mess - Live from Earth," a live CD/DVD out Nov. 10.

"Before we hang up our hats for the year, I thought it would be great to capture the concert in an adventurous style so that my grandmom can see what I've been up to for two years," he said with a laugh. "She doesn't like YouTube. She says the quality ain't that good."

Madonna booed'

BUCHAREST, Romania - At first, fans politely applauded the Roma performers sharing a stage with Madonna. Then the pop star condemned widespread discrimination against Roma, or Gypsies — and the cheers gave way to jeers.

The sharp mood change that swept the crowd of 60,000, who had packed a park for Wednesday night's concert, underscores how prejudice against Gypsies remains deeply entrenched across Eastern Europe.

Despite long-standing efforts to stamp out rampant bias, human rights advocates say Roma probably suffer more humiliation and endure more discrimination than any other people group on the continent.

Sometimes, it can be deadly: In neighboring Hungary, six Roma have been killed and several wounded in a recent series of apparently racially motivated attacks targeting small countryside villages predominantly settled by Gypsies.

"There is generally widespread resentment against Gypsies in Eastern Europe. They have historically been the underdog," Radu Motoc, an official with the Soros Foundation Romania, said Thursday.

Roma, or Gypsies, are a nomadic ethnic group believed to have their roots in the Indian subcontinent. They live mostly in southern and eastern Europe, but hundreds of thousands have migrated west over the past few decades in search of jobs and better living conditions.

Romania has the largest number of Roma in the region. Some say the population could be as high as 2 million, although official data put it at 500,000.

Until the 19th century, Romanian Gypsies were slaves, and they've gotten a mixed response ever since: While discrimination is widespread, many East Europeans are enthusiastic about Gypsy music and dance, which they embrace as part of the region's cultural heritage.

That explains why the Roma musicians and a dancer who had briefly joined Madonna onstage got enthusiastic applause. And it also may explain why some in the crowd turned on Madonna when she paused during the two-hour show — a stop on her worldwide "Sticky and Sweet" tour — to touch on their plight.

"It has been brought to my attention ... that there is a lot of discrimination against Romanies and Gypsies in general in Eastern Europe," she said. "It made me feel very sad."

Thousands booed and jeered her.

A few cheered when she added: "We don't believe in discrimination ... we believe in freedom and equal rights for everyone." But she got more boos when she mentioned discrimination against homosexuals and others.

"I jeered her because it seemed false what she was telling us. What business does she have telling us these things?" said Ionut Dinu, 23.

Madonna did not react and carried on with her concert, held near the hulking palace of the late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

Her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said Madonna and other had told her there were cheers as well as jeers.

"Madonna has been touring with a phenomenal troupe of Roma musicians who made her aware of the discrimination toward them in several countries so she felt compelled to make a brief statement," Rosenberg said in an e-mail. "She will not be issuing a further statement."

One Roma musician said the attitude toward Gypsies is contradictory.

"Romanians watch Gypsy soap operas, they like Gypsy music and go to Gypsy concerts," said Damian Draghici, a Grammy Award-winner who has performed with James Brown and Joe Cocker.

"But there has been a wave of aggression against Roma people in Italy, Hungary and Romania, which shows me something is not OK," he told the AP in an interview. "The politicians have to do something about it. People have to be educated not to be prejudiced. All people are equal, and that is the message politicians must give."

Nearly one in two of Europe's estimated 12 million Roma claimed to have suffered an act of discrimination over the past 12 months, according to a recent report by the Vienna-based EU Fundamental Rights Agency. The group says Roma face "overt discrimination" in housing, health care and education.

Many do not have official identification, which means they cannot get social benefits, are undereducated and struggle to find decent jobs.

Roma children are more likely to drop out of school than their peers from other ethnic groups. Many Romanians label Gypsies as thieves, and many are outraged by those who beg or commit petty crimes in Western Europe, believing they spoil Romania's image abroad.

In May 2007, Romanian President Traian Basescu was heard to call a Romanian journalist a "stinky Gypsy" during a conversation with his wife. Romania's anti-discrimination board criticized Basescu, who later apologized.

Human rights activists say the attacks in Hungary, which began in July 2008, may be tied to that country's economic crisis and the rising popularity of far-right vigilantes angered by a rash of petty thefts and other so-called "Gypsy crime." Last week, police arrested four suspects in a nightclub in the eastern city of Debrecen.

Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia also have been criticized for widespread bias against Roma.

Madonna's outrage touched a nerve in Romania, but it seems doubtful it will change anything, said the Soros Foundation's Motoc.

"Madonna is a pop star. She is not an expert on interethnic relations," he said.

I was invited to attend the MYX Setlist event for Miguel Escueta last August 26, 2009, which coincides with my 22nd Birthday. I am not much of a fan, but since i was short with budget to have a celebration, I chose to go on with the event so it'll be a different one this time. Call time was 5:30pm and the event is supposed to take place by 6pm. But of course, Filipino time, it then happened by 7:30-ish. But in fairness to Miguel and his companions they arrived on time. It was due to sounds men unprofessional attitudes that made the event delayed. ABS CBN would have, one of the most advance security measures among any other buildings. You must be supplied with proper IDs so you can enter their points. It was cool. I am on the elevator that brought me to the 9th floor, and one of my many co - passengers happened to be And I Love You So director, Laurenti Dyogi. Very unfortunate for him, as other people are actually talking/bad mouthing about his current movie. When i reached the area where the event will happen, I was welcomed by a very accommodating person named Mobi, i suppose he works for ABS CBN Interactive. Then there came a lady who gave me a signed CD of Miguel Escueta. When Miguel Escueta and company arrived, i was introduced to them and we ate together. We had pizza and everything while we all are conversing and throwing questions. I love the pizza, it was pretty much my "handa" already for my Bday. Miguel is a very nice person, very down to earth, and he'll make sure you're okay all through out your stay. He'll always check me if I'm having fun. Not to mention his companion is very nice as well, though he hardly talk. I as well met Rodel of MCA music, a very nice person indeed. There then the gig happened and i saw Miguel performed his music live. Very Gifted. I knew that he writes his songs. Wish i have that kind of talent as well. It went for about 45 minutes and it was all worth it. After the gig, we pose for some picture taking and the goodbyes' are said. It really was a memorable birthday for me. Nice. Thank You Miguel Escueta, Thank You MYX. Your Choice! Your Music!

American Idol is undeniably the best Singing Search on earth to date.
It produced numerous good singers that dominates the charts. All through out the season, the show features lots of interesting contestants. And I Am a Big Fan. Hence, here's the list of my Top Ten Favorite Idol Finalist.
1. KELLY CLARKSON - She's the original Idol. The singing idol from Season 1 certainly is and will be the most successful Idol ever. Judges were never wrong on their praises to this lady. She's got issues with her size but nonetheless she look radiantly beautiful. Thus, making her on the top of my lists. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: My Life Would Suck Without You, Since You've Been Gone, Breakaway, Already Gone, A Moment Like This. 2. JORDIN SPARKS - Young and Beautiful. This singing idol from Season 6 has one of the most powerful voices in Idol run. Despite her age she still managed to portray very powerful performances that eventually landed her the title. I remember watching her in every episode of Season 6 and whew, i was just but mesmerized as always. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Tattoo, No Air, One Step at a Time, This is My Now, Battlefield. 3. DAVID ARCHULETA - Charming and Youthful. Hailed from Season 7 of idol, one of the earliest front runner but managed only to be on the 2nd spot. He is the most loved among any other Idols. He have tasted both of Simon's good and bad criticisms. I really like the way he brings his self to the public, seems very approachable and appreciative. He's been to Manila for a back-to-back concert with David Cook, and of course, I was there. And to mention, he's been dominating the charts here and there. Kudos Archu. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Crush, A Little Too Not Over You, Touch My Hand, Your Eyes Don't Lie, Zero Gravity. 4. KRIS ALLEN - Looks and Voice. He's got both. For me this idol from Season 8 has the most unique and very distinguishable voice among any others. He performs each song from his heart, good or bad comments are accepted by him. Probably not the best singer on his batch, but thanks to his good looks, America voted and placed him to where he is now. I have high hopes for this man. May he be successful. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Heartless, No Boundaries, Everything. 5. CARRIE UNDERWOOD - Country and Classic. The most awarded singing idol, pride of Season 4. She been very successful on her genre. I wasn't able to watch much of the Season 4 but seeing this idol making big waves on the music industry makes me proud not only of her but of the show as well. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Jesus Takes the Wheel, Home Sweet Home, Before He Cheats. 6. ANOOP DESAI - This alumni of season 8, got the voice, voice that Simon himself praises. Yet, another Indian to make it to the Elite Finalists of Idol. Anoop was able to create an Idol history, breaking the idol usual 12 - finalists per season, Anoop was included and became the 13th finalist of his season. I was once watching the audition rounds as my little cousin said i have a big resemblance of him. CONTRIBUTING FACTOR: My Prerogative, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Everything I Do, Always on my Mind. 7. BLAKE LEWIS - Beat Box and Hip. Runner Up of Season 6, made his way to the top by showing his unique way of interpreting songs. His beat box style to the song you Give Love a Bad Name was indeed remarkable. I really like him during the Season 6 run from the start until the end along with Jordin. I hope he can make it to the music industry and make it big. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: You Give Love A Bad Name, Geek in the Pink, How Many Words. 8. RAMIELLE MALUBAY - Cute and Bubbly. Proud Filipina. One of the early faves but had deteriorated performances as the contest goes by. Simon praised her for her powerful voice. I really am very proud of her as she is proud of where she came from. I know it'll be hard for her to penetrate the main stream but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Alone, In My Life, You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, Against All Odds. 9. DAUGHTRY - Rock and Successful. He was not even included in the Top 3 Finalists, but he can be considered as one of the top 3 most successful idols along with Underwood and Clarkson. He's got Grammys and his made big waves on the music industry. I like his style and i hope his music lives on and on. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Home, It's Not Over , What About Now. 10. DAVID COOK - Consistent and Vibrant. Cook's victory over Archuleta is a major dismay for me, but this big winner of Season 7 proved that he is more than deserving of the title and he lives on the very sense of it. He's been consistently great with all of his performances. Rocked Manila with Archuleta last May 2009, one of the biggest events in Philippine Concert scene. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: Come Back To Me, Always be My Baby, Time of My Life. Awaiting for Season 9. Less Paula Abdul, I hope the show is again to produce batch of great singing idols.
