Selebrasyon at nakawan sa Disyembre uno

Sakay ng bus biyaheng Monumento / UE Letre, bumaba kami ng kaibigan kong si Kim sa MCU. Konti pa lang ang aming hakbang buhat sa pagkakababa ay…

“Magnanakaw!” Ang sigaw ng lalaking nakita ang panghahablot ng batang lalaki ng hikaw ng isang babae. Ayun kumaripas na ng takbo ang bata dala ang na-snatch.

Nauna pang mag-react ang lalaki. Sinalat muna ng babae ang kanyang tenga bago tuluyang napagtantong nabawasan siya ng alahas. Walang nagmagandang loob upang habulin ang batang lansangan. WALANG POLICE VISIBILITY SA MISMONG LUGAR.


First time ko nung araw na yun magdala ng cellphone na may video-capture feature. Ngunit mabilis ang pangyayari kaya hindi ko nagawang kuhanan ng video. Baka ako naman ang mabiktima kung maglalabas ako ng cellphone. Nagmamadali pa kaming pumunta ni Kim sa isang salu-salo.

Narito ang kaganapan sa house party na aking dinaluhan.

Luningning Friendster account found

I’m not a Luningning fan but I opt to continue writing (yes, more to come) any interesting info related to noontime shows for the benefit of my visitors.

click for larger view

A link from ABS-CBN Forums led me to Luningning’s Friendster account. I’m not pretty sure if it’s really her. We all know anyone can pretend to be someone in Friendster but if you want to add her, go ahead. Her name there is Lea Carla Santos.

Is there any truth in the thread saying that Luningning is gay or transvestite?

Some believe,

positive mga tol!!! my tropa told me na bading si Luningning
tropa ko kasi nag wwork siya sa Wowowee as back up dancers….

…and some don’t.

tutuo naman pong babae cya eh nakita ko po sa [rated K]

Wandering at Power Plant Makati

Just when I thought there’s no more free stuff inside malls. I stopped by Team Manila’s branch at Rockwell and look what I got, a yocard postcard.

October a year ago, a warning over a possible terrorist attack circulated through e-mail and text.

Wag muna kayo punta megamall..naaalala mo pa ba si janet na pinsan ni jude? pulis sya na naka-assign sa crame ngayon. Tumawag sya sakin kanina to inform me na, may nahuli daw silang abusayyaf ngayon and wala yata silang balak i-news sa tv baka matiktikan ng iba pang abusayyaf. Nag-surrender daw sa kanila ito tapos sinabi nya lahat ng plano nila. Sa Oct 21 daw pasasabugin ng abusayyaf ang megamall. Kaya ngayon red alert daw sila.

This forwarded e-mail turned out to be a false alarm after police roamed the specified place.

At 1:30 p.m. of October 19, 2007 (Philippine time), an explosion coming from a storage room of a restaurant shocked the people inside Glorietta 2 in Ayala, Makati City. As of 2:40 a.m., nine casualties and at least 119 injured were reported (

It was earlier speculated that an LPG tank of the restaurant may have triggered the blast. But policemen are still investigating on what could be the real cause of the incident.

Nothing but best wishes to the Red Warriors

The University of the East Red Warriors never failed to get a slot in the final four for the past 5 straight seasons of UAAP (2002-2007). But they’ve always settled in third place. Their last championship appearance was in 1990, defeated by DLSU Green Archers.

September 13 post-game interview of Coach Dindo Pumaren. Video uploaded in You Tube by inboundpass.

I guess they just got tired of pouring out tears at the end of each lost game. I saw them repeat the feat made by the UST Tigers in 1993, garnering the most winning games in a season. What a great moment to celebrate. No more disappointing twice to beat, beaten twice scenario. Gone all the way to the finals. But too early to close the entire Recto Avenue for a party. There’s still La Salle, Ateneo and UST who can snatch the title easily the moment the boys of UE become too relaxed.

I read a comment (and a response to that) in the forum posted after the Warriors’ remarkable 14 games sweep



gilgrissom quoting bmsrco028

Well said…I’m counting on Dindo Pumaren to constantly remind his players that they have not accomplished anything yet. I guess, with all his basketball experience he knows that topping the eliminations and being in the Finals is just half of what they can accomplish.

They should be wearing practice shirts like what the bulls wore before…something like “72-10 don’t mean a thing without the RING.” Read before that Phil Jackson liked that marketing idea to keep his players to focus on the championship…one of his favorites practice shirts.

How about me wearing a “14-0 don’t mean a thing without the RING” shirt in Araneta Coliseum?

Kudos Red Warriors. Continue what you have started. Keep the momentum high. Take your last games one at a time. Show them how all of you badly need it. End UE’s 21 years of drought at Season 70!

How I do it

I do it more often in the comfort room than anywhere else. Hold it right there. Before you perceive this to be something nasty, I’ll be straight forward. I’m referring to exercise. Weird huh? You might feel even stranger when I say there’s no enough space in our bathroom. No sit ups, just push ups on the wall with arms solely moving. Only standing positions incorporating the exercises we do after our flag ceremony in my first school. I feel conscious doing it in the living room and in the kitchen especially when my mother catches me. There’s nothing more comfortable inside the cr. I can’t believe I’m opening this up. But it does help. A short-time remedy to my ailing posture problem. It feels good every time I hear those popping sounds while stretching.

Going to the typical exercise you know, my last was in May. I made about 4 rounds of night jogging around the sunken garden of UP Diliman. I should’ve wear my rubber shoes at that time rather than flip flops. My slippers keep on slipping my feet, making me incapable of running freely.

Walking is the best. I usually walk all the way to our public market due to its proximity (an estimate of Farmers Plaza to Araneta Coliseum distance). Lucky me, I don’t have to waste 7 pesos for transpo except at times when I carry a heavy load. It indeed benefits both my health and pocket.
