new addition to my deviant art. more pictures there.


stalker mode.. ON.

lately, edlyn and i have been staying online till 1 am. we're both on a christmas vacation, meaning we kindaaa have nothing to do the next day so we stay up late stalking people.

i miss college days when 12 am was just the start of my night, ready to write papers and to complete presentations. haha

we were stalking this guy i found cute. we searched the net for pictures, possible place where he is studying, and other sites where he had links to. we even got to the point of considering the possibility of a relationship.

edlyn: "pwedeng pwede!"

mhen, i barely even know the guy. hahahahahaha

everything that we did (or will still do) concerning this guy shouldn't be taken seriously. everything was for fun and we were just doing what girls would like to do. i just can't post pictures of him. i'll leave it to my amusement. :P

Play it, Sam. Play 'As Yawmee Goes By'.

three movies down!

>> Tuesday, December 26, 2006

sabaw na utak ko sa pinanood naming sine kanina. so asahan na sabaw din ang post ko, di tulad ng mano po na mejo matino.

may tatlo akong body guard kanina nung nanood kami ng sine sa sm north. haha si jace, xander, hanniel at ako ang nag movie house hopping kaninang hapon.

super noypi

may potential yung super noypi. sayang lang yung last part, parang minadali yung resolution. hindi ko alam kung ano nangyari sa isang character.

ayoko yung character ni katrina halili. palagi nalang siya yung kontrabida na misunderstood. pati sa atlantika, lost na kontrabida siya dahil kulang sa pagaaruga ng magulang. ganon din sa super noypi. (ay, spoiler ba yon? hindi siguro.) kelan ba siya magiging pure mabait?

basta swangit yung ending.

benta yung pagkasabaw ni sandara park. "huwoooooow???" <--san kaya nanggaling yung reaction na yon? haha for the first time, naappreciate ko ang pagkabarok ni sandara.

ang gusto ko sa sineng ito yung pakadirect nung unang part. kung napanod mo yung trailer, makikita mo na may boxes effect sa mga scenes. gusto ko yon. pero sana tinuloy nila yon hanggang dulo ng sine.

ok yung effects, except for the mulawin part. parang metal wings.

yung car sequence, sa fairview shi-noot. 10 mins away from our house! haha promise, kilala ko yung lugar na yon, pwede-pwedeng i-pinpoint kung san sila exactly nagshoot.

jao mapa winner! kamusta naman ang age difference ni mark herras at jao mapa? isipin mo. at mag-tatay sila. think of the age difference mhen. ilang taon kaya nagkaanak si jao mapa kung ganon? 10 years old? hahahahaha weeenur!

zsa zsa zaturnnah

wala akong makitang poster, ninenok ko lang to sa website ng zsa zsa zaturnnah.

dadagdag nalang ako ng cast pic. nenok din from their multiply.

talbog lahat ng bading sa kagandahan at kachorvahan ni rustom padilla. as in, super ganda niya. the movie is "too gay" for me. di kaya ng starbucks powers ang bikini costume ni rustom.

super funny. benta ang kabadingers ng sine. lalo na ang tambalang zsa zsa padilla at chokoleit. yung katawan ni zsa zsa, hindi ko alam kung pano naging possible yon. abs + sobrang payat = zsa zsa padilla.

thank god at walang pangit na costume. no darna style na wind resistance sa ulo at tela sa harapan.

nakakaloka lang na makitang in-love si hunky alfred vargas sa isang bading na si rustom padilla. sisigaw talaga dapat ako kung nakita kong naghalikan yung dalawa.

effects-wise, ok naman. improving. mas ok siya kaysa sa mala-mulawin na pakpak sa super noypi.
may katotohanan kaya yung hanging question na binitiwan nila sa dulo ng sine?

HAHAHAHA!! kung si quincy may kamukha sa mano po, si geopet may kamukha sa zsa zsa zaturnnah! AS IN. tawa kami nang tawa nung may cameo si "geopet". hahahahaha artistahin ang mga block e!

swangit lang yung audio nung sine, may echo. sabi ni jace, nasa movie house yon.

isa pa itong potential na movie. nag-iimprove na ang filipino films ah!

alam ko na secret sa filipino movie. may mix ng comedy, drama at action. masyadong depressing pag puro drama (e.g. dekada 70. naiyak ako sa sobrang sakit ng ulo ko sa walang kamatayang sigawan at iyakan ni christopher de leon at vilma santos). masyadong sabaw naman pag pure comedy na walang substance (e.g. lastikman 1). masyado namang korny pag puro action (wala akong maisip na example. haha)

so pasok yung mano po at super noypi don. yung zsa zsa kasi, walang drama. action and comedy yung sine. ehe kaya mejo sabaw yung zsazsa. hahaha

sa tatlong napanod ko, i'd go for mano po 5. hindi dahil nakakita ako ng artista sa sinehan, mas may flow yung story. ok sana yung zsa zsa, pero nakakasira ng ulo yung sobrang pagkabading ng story. hahaha



i've never had a solo pic in my phone. it feels weird when i take a picture of myself. so when you browse through my phone pics, everything feels like a "professional photographer" (note the quotation marks).

full-sized photographs and other artsy-fartsy pictures are in my deviant art.

libre naman mangarap. i can share what i feel. haha

gua ai di

>> Sunday, December 24, 2006

it was a different and new experience for me as i went to my first filipino movie premier last night. :)

jace had the passes to watch the premier for mano po 5 because he had to review it for work. knowing that i like christian bautista (haha insert fan girl scream. ehe) and the premier would be in sm north, he invited me over.

why not diba.

i couldn't find a poster that was in a large file. i got this from their website.

the night started with us asking every security guard for the contact person jace needed to look for. we felt like tennis balls being passed from one court to another, until we arrived at the entrance of the cinema. good thing jace's officemate lori arrived and saved our butts from asking again and again and again for the nth time. ehe.

i guess jace memorized the theme song of mano po already because we stood beside the speakers while we were in line.

"My heart has a mind of it's own.
Right or wrong it's gonna do,
only what it feels it's true.
I'll follow it wherever it goes.
Anywhere it leads me too.
My heart has a mind of it's own."

we entered before the celebrities arrived to escape the chaos and the screaming fans. they started to arrive around 9pm.

the movie wasn't so bad at all.

i'll leave the chinese translations to jace, because i don't know anything about the chinese language. ehe. cinematography was nice, even the scenes of the "past life". it was a good mix of comedy and drama. they even had some chinese scenes to show dreams and feelings. i like the fight scene of christian and richard. nice stunts. :)

it was just overkill to make christian bautista's character an international singer. his billboards in edsa were photoshopped to replace his name to "felix yan". as in same album, but only carrying a different name. haha in all fairness, he did look like some boy band. haha

benta sakin ang character ni ketchup eusebio.

i didn't like the screaming fans while we were watching. it didn't matter if they laughed and screamed at the right moments, but it was damn too annoying when they made very loud side comments. think of it, we were seated at the balcony and i could hear their voices from the orchestra. they screamed "i lab yu enjel!! pakasalan na kita!" in the middle of intense moments in the movie. rawr, no movie manners. they didn't even sing the national anthem. *shakes head*

richard gutierrez is handsome, even from afar. very smooth skin and has this smile plastered on his face. angel is simple as you see her on tv. raymond, um, you can tell that it's him even in the dark. promise.

at sa dami-dami ng nakita kong artista, hindi ko manlang nakita si christian bautista. kamusta naman ang life ko. we were seated an aisle away from where they were seated and i didn't even get a glimpse of christian. whazzap tadhana?

sadly, i wasn't able to get any pictures of celebrities. only the line outside and the movie house. haha di ko na iuupload.

thanks for the invite jace. haha i was able to survive a day without starbucks! whohoo!

ALBERT: 0910-6543429

di ka marunong umintindi ano? sinabi ko na na ayokong makipag text mate sayo. pero ano ginawa mo? missed call ka parin ng missed call. sinasayang mo lang baterya ko, panahon ko, at pasensya ko. wala ka bang respeto sa ibang tao pag sinabi niya na ayaw niyang makipag kaibigan? ginagamit mo pa ang pasko para magpalusot. spirit of christmas ka dyan. ulol.

mag-aral ka nga para maintindihan mo kung ano ibig sabihin ng "respect". at wag mong dadaanin sa "oo, basta ikaw magiging personal teacher ko. mag-aaral ako ng mabuti". bastos ka. kawawa naman nanay mo at di ka natuto ng good manners.

alin sa mga salitang "ayokong makipag textmate" ang hindi mo naintindihan?


hindi talaga ako ganito. sa mga makukulit at mga di marunong umunawa sa "ayokong makipag text mate" nauubos ang kabaitan ko."

kung trip mong awayin tong bastos na to, sige lang. ayan na yung numero.

kagabi ang pinaka makulit na block E dinner na nangyari.

the night started with a high-pitched, shrilly squeal from vit and em, and me in bel field. imagine the gayest persons screaming on the top of lungs in front of gesu.

haha masaya talaga ang mga taga heights. kasing hyper ng mga tao sa fafa. kaya inadopt na namin kayo sa block e eh. hahaha pati na ang inyong christmas blooper sa isang stranger na binansagan niyong "migoy". ayan, may bago na siyang pangalan ngayon. merry christmas to him!

from the girls: edlyn, helga, chika, jihan, ako, cams, missy, em

(di na ako naglagay ng link tags sa mga pangalan niyo dahil magiging puti na ang post ko.)

yeahoo! finally, a night in bel field under the stars and the twinkling kweesmas lights. my sanity has plunged to the empty cores of the untouched ice tubes, because of that freaking captain barbell-slash-raymond gutierrez joke.

mauuulit uli block e ha. sigurado.

shhh. keep a secret.

i'm gonna die happy if i have a library like this: (taken from random pictures)

"it is a fact that people have secrets. knowing that you will never know some of them adds to the spice of life." - from one of the sunday afternoon shows of ABS-CBN (translation mine)

people are private people. no matter how public their profiles are, they also have secrets to keep. i have secrets that other people do not know. i have secrets that i share. and i know secrets of other people.

but when do we know when to stop knowing the secrets of other people?

women (and sometimes men.. aminin!) watch entertainment news to get the latest buzz on celebrities. they're so famous and much admired that we want to know what's happening to their lives. it seems that knowing their birthday, what they eat for breakfast, what time did they go to the bathroom, etc makes us feel that we are one step closer to them. ordinary people go to great lengths of stalking to show others that they are the ultimate fans or the ultimate friend of that celebrity. they feel that they hold the great fire of life when they are able to acquire the tissue paper that this particular celebrity threw away, or the seat that this celebrity sat on in a movie house.

sometimes, we have to learn that we will never get to know them really because we are not them. there are only two beings that fully know the existence and secrets of that person: the person himself and God.

i admit that i am a fan of several celebrities. i get all twisted and excited when i see a celebrity or get to shake their hand (that was waaay back in grade school). sometimes, even if i'm not a fan of a basketball player or a celebrity, i still get the butterflies when i see them in person. it's more exciting if they remember you the next time you see each other. but i don't go to the extent of hoarding all info because even if i memorized his life line, that doesn't make me more of a friend to him (him: meaning johnny depp, josh groban, johnny depp, josh groban, johnny depp, josh groban... j... :P)

even i will never know the deep dark and dirty secrets of my friends. of course, they have secrets to keep and secrets to tell, but i can't force them to tell me all of their hearts' desires.

knowing a person means trusting and respecting their decisions, trusting and respecting their lives, keeping and respecting their secrets. secrets means responsibilities. responsibility is a big key in keeping a friendship or a relationship. it's gonna be a sucky life if you share the secret with everyone. a close-knit information adds to the spice of life, making it more exciting. but if you carry an top-secret information, you have to carry that responsibility of keeping it to yourself. especially if that information is not solely yours.

people (especially entertainment reporters) should know their limits. over reading actions and words of celebrities may bring them to great trouble. they are people, they have secrets they want to keep. the reporters should respect that some information should be kept inside the homes of the celebrities. if they're willing to share secrets, they'll come to the tv networks and tell their secrets. that way, celebrities will learn to trust reporters. reporters should learn to do responsible reporting because they are reporting about the lives of human beings.

do you have a secret? of course you do. take care of it.

my personality

>> Tuesday, December 12, 2006

this result came in thrice already for different sites. i'm part of the 1.5% of the population who are INFJs.

take the test!!!!

INFJ Counselers, clergy, missionaries, teachers, medical doctors, dentists, chiropractors, psychologists, psychiatrists, writers, musicians, artists, psychics, photographers, child care workers, education consultants, librarians, marketeers, scientists, social workers.. Blessed with an idealistic vision, they do best when they seek to make that vision a reality.

INFJ - The Mystic


INFJs are future oriented, and direct their insight and inspiration toward the understanding of themselves and thereby human nature. Their work mirrors their integrity, and it needs to reflect their inner ideals. Solitude and an opportunity to concentrate thoroughly on what counts most is important to them. INFJs prefer to quietly exert their influence. They have deeply felt compassion, and they desire harmony with others. INFJs understand the complexities existing within people and among them. They are at their best concentrating on their ideas, ideals, and inspirations.


INFJ children have two sides. They can be very much involved in the world of people, as well as quiet, imaginative, and in their own world. They are usually gentle and abhor violence. As teenager, INFJs look for a small group of people who understand and appreciate them. Without this support, they can feel isolated from others. INFJs who do not find a supportive social group may find the teen years to be somewhat difficult for them because of peer pressure to be popular and activity oriented. They are not likely to enjoy large parties, but prefer intimate groups of close and long-standing friends. Many INFJs who have the opportunity to gravitate toward higher education where they often find their niche. With their intellectual bent, they are led to endeavors that allow them to deal with theory and complexity. Professors often spot their intellectual inclination and encourage it. INFJs often settle early into a career choice and diligently apply themselves to the career's requirements. This same diligent pattern applies when selecting other important things in their lives, such as where to live, who to marry, and what activities are worthy of their dedication. INFJs have an internal picture of how they would like their work to contribute to the general good. If they are in an appropriate career area, INFJs may reap the rewards of their insight and hard work. Because of their future-focus, their people orientation, and their push toward task completion, they may rise to positions of responsibility. Learning

INFJs have a strong love of learning, and they tend to do well academically. Through persistence, diligence, and conscientiousness, they complete their assignments on time. They are likely to enjoy research and will go great lengths to find answers. INFJs enjoy investigating the possibilities and meanings beyond the actual facts and realities. Reading holds a particular fascination for them because it allows them to have quiet reflection time and engages their imagination. They also like the written word (and rely on it more than the spoken word) since it is usually better structured and more coherent with a ready-made framework. INFJs write and communicate well because they want to formulate their ideas clearly. They place high regard on their reader and audience. They seek to communicate their ideals to others. When their ideals need to be championed, they speak up in an enthusiastic and impassioned way. As students, INFJs prefer learning from teachers whom they both like and admire, and who give them personal attention. INFJs are often 'model' students. They are quiet and orderly, reflective and thoughtful, and sincerely want to please their teachers and learn the right thing. They learn best from others but want time to assimilate material by themselves. INFJs will go beyond what has been presented and often mull material over in their minds. Occasionally they will discuss ruminations with others in order to learn even more. They particularly like the more conceptual and theoretical classes, therefore, higher education is comfortable to them.


INFJs tend to be devoted to what they believe in and seek work where their needs, values, and ideals can be deeply engaged. They move on the wave of their inspirations and are determined to see that their values are worked out in their lives. They will work toward their goals individually and, when needed, will put together a team of other highly dedicated people like themselves. They are personal be with others, working with integrity and consistency, and they follow through on their commitments. INFJs, while concentrating on what is important to them, may ignore the political ramifications of their actions. They can be surprised by the necessity of being political and usually resent that aspect of organizational life. Being able to talk honestly and comfortably to people at work is much more important to them than 'playing games.' INFJs orient themselves toward their goals using a personal, values-based framework. They do not 'advertise' their values and priorities because they believe in harmony and positive relationships. However, one would do well not to underestimate the amount of perseverance, energy, and time INFJs give to their priorities. What they do, they do with an almost religious intensity. The INFJ external environment may be only partially organised. Their internal environment, by contrast, is anything but haphazard. Their ideas need to fit into a coherent whole that has the pieces in place. Organization of the internal world takes precedence over organization of external world. INFJs prefer occupations that focus on the big picture, involve conceptual awareness, and lead to a better understanding of the spiritual, emotional, or future needs of people. They want their work to have impact and meaning and for it to bring them admiration and respect. While INFJs can and do enter all occupations, some are more appealing to them than others. These include clergy, education consultant, English teacher, fine arts teacher, librarian, psychiatrist, psychologist, scientist, social worker, and other occupations that allow INFJs an opportunity to make their own creative contribution.


INFJs lead through their quiet yet persistent and determined effort toward long-range goals for themselves, others and their organizations. In working toward their vision, they win cooperation rather than demand it. INFJs work to make their insights real and are able to inspire others with their ideals. They use a low-key, soft, yet intense and determined course of action. When they do not directly lead others, they may still act as facilitators between people. In meetings, they focus on both people and new ideas.


Leisure-time pursuits for INFJs are often solitary or involve the company of others who are particularly important to them. Sitting around with dear friends discussing feelings can be very special to INFJs. INFJs are likely to have friends of long standing rather than make many new acquaintances. They may meet with their friends fairly consistently to share what is happening in their lives. It is sometimes difficult for others to break into this circle. These deep friendships are important, even though INFJs may not share much directly about themselves.


For INFJs, 'still waters run deep.' They tend to become attracted to someone special and prefer this one deep relationship over many superficial ones. The depth of involvement and feeling that the INFJ has toward loved ones is only partially communicated outward. At times, when alone, INFJs become truly in touch with the depth of the love they have for their partner. They may not openly demonstrate or even verbalize their intense feelings. INFJs often have an ideal standard of what love is. They hold to their ideal and are disappointed when, inevitably, their relationship and/or mate reveals flaws. INFJs enjoy sharing activities like a regular 'date,' revisiting the place where they first met their mates, or doing other symbolic things that help to continue and confirm the existence of the bond that they feel for their partner. INFJs want to give love and to be loved. They enter into relationships just to be cared for, even when the person is not right for them and they suspect it. However, when they meet that special person, they are quick to get into the relationship and make it a serious one. They will end their other relationships in order to pursue their loved one. They become very focused, intense, and direct in that pursuit. INFJs, when scorned, take it personally and retreat inward. They may obsess about the relationship and their role in its failure. One INFJ explained, 'people can do the most outrageous things, yet I blame myself for triggering their behaviour or not recognizing it. I see myself as responsible for relationships. Other people can dismiss them --- I'm not able to.' INFJs may blame themselves and experience a period of mourning. If they do not marshall their resources, externalized their feelings, and take risks to move on, they may experience a long periods of self-examination.


the yellow shirts stand victorious

we welcome the first philippine idol, mau marcelo. congratulations!

i'm really disappointed with the turn-out of the competition. as hyped as american idol was and is, i was expecting the same for philippine idol. but when i watched the weekend performance, the place wasn't even 3/4 full. large tarps of the idols filled the bleachers, and not screaming fans. general admission was deserted. the fans were scattered.

and the sound system? a great big flop.

anyway, the big three deserve to be the big three. i wouldn't mind if gian would win, or jan or mau, because the three of them are worthy to become the first philippine idol.

the jan advantage: his sex appeal is just too tasty. i didn't like him at first because of his mouth placement and shaky vibrato. however, in the duration of the competition, he has improved a lot, both in terms of vocals and stage presence. his raw talent earned him the screaming blue fans at the upper and lower boxes.
the jan disadvantage: the rumors about his parents. i won't talk about it.

the gian advantage: total package of a performer. his theatrical background taught him how to move on stage, the proper gestures for his songs, and his choice of songs. he has this smile on his face that is just irresistible.
the gian disadvantage: the ex-girlfriend that caused his emo-ness. WHO CAN EVER LET GO OF A GIAN MAGDANGAL? (ehe. fangirl scream. chos. scream with me kakai!)

the mau advantage: she's a damn good diva. her voice is powerful and full. winning numerous singing contests has given her the confidence and the aura to become a singer.
the mau disadvantage: her image is not for an international level. i hope she improves on her english and her choice of clothing. people will still look for star-quality in a singer. mau will need it a lot.

last night's performances were better than last saturday. i didn't like the sound system at all, which caused me to fall asleep during mau's last performance. ehe, sorry. anyway, i kept myself awake all throughout the "concert" last night. and i loved it.

i enjoyed all performances. i was just bothered to the "boy toy" shirts of drae, reymond and ken when they sang with the sex bomb. it was too much. hehe

the best part was when the top 12 sang the compositions of mr c. miguel's song was good, and the lyrics was appropriate for him. :) they all look stunning in their gowns. jelli is a model material. she can carry herself well. apple's dress looked like she nicked it from a 6-year old flower girl. ehehe.

the competition is over, and mau is now our representative for the asian/world idol. congratulations and don't let the philippines down!

and to end this post, i made a video for josh groban's new song, lullaby. i wanted it to be purely african, but i couldn't find enough pictures. :) i'm damn proud of it.

GELPI went to sacred heart sun valley to present a story for their christmas party. quincy (or as we call him, the gelpi mascot) was the kid pacifier and the trampoline of the kids. i enjoyed myself by taking pictures of the super hyperactive children.

one of the kids, reyna, loved to talk to us. here was one of the many conversations we had.

reyna: i'm going to study in st. scho.
me: when?
reyna: sometime. when i graduate from sacred heart. my sister is studying there.
me: how old is your sister?
reyna: seven.
me: and you are?
reyna: four.
me: do you have a kuya?
reyna: yeah. he's 11 years old.
me: where is your kuya studying? (shempre diba, alangan naman sa st. scho din)
reyna: um. i don't know eh.
me: you didn't ask?
reyna: i don't want to know.

middle finger. the gesture may be obscene, especially to adults, but this gesture is beginning to be an every day expression for the young generation. it may be a sign of frustration, a sign of anger, or a joke. it may also be simply a finger up, just like as you put up any other finger.

i watched Tanghalang Ateneo's production of "middle finger po" yesterday. it was about the frustrations of students studying in a catholic school where every thing has to be followed by the book. i share some of the sentiments because i myself came from a catholic high school. hair has to be this long, socks should be up to this certain height, shoes should not have heels, a chemise should be worn under the uniform, etc, etc. you're bombarded with the doctrines and lives of the saints and sometimes you feel that you're far from being a saint yourself. some students give up on the pressure and go the other way. they become the deliquents or the bad influences of the school community.

middle finger touches on what happens to the students outside the classroom. what they do when they're absent, when they're truant, when they have family problems, when they're horny, when they're entering their puberty, when they have crushes, when their teacher picks on them, and when their hair grow long.

the play is as shocking as reality. you never know who among your friends is keeping porn cards in their bags, or who is addicted to video games. teachers don't trust their students that much anymore. when a student writes a beautifully written essay on life and mystery, the teacher would think that they copied from a book or someone else did wrote it for them. have the students become that bad for the teachers to lose their trust? or maybe the students have lost hope that they will never be a good citizen and will remain a headache to society? i sense a middle finger rising now.

when you reach a snake's head, you go down the board. ladders, you go up. that's the concept of middle finger's stage, thanks to the explanation of reamur. you do a bad thing, you get punished. you do good, you are complimented. the students find it difficult to climb the ladder, and they find themselves sliding down to the lower numbered boxes. everything is separated by a wired fence. you can poke your arm to reach what you want, but you can never get it until you climb a ladder.

middle finger is not for the young, a level of maturity and understanding is needed to see beyond the butt and underwear exposures (mas matindi parin ang butt exposure ni jake sa frankenstein!), masturbation, smacks, prostitution, porn cards, curses and a lot of middle fingers. if that is what you see, then you are one of the school administrators in the play. but if you see what is inside the hearts and minds of jakob, lunga, wallace and yachin, then congratulations, you may climb the ladder to square number 100.

congrats to TA for a wonderful play. congrats to my dear fluff, i see you as a concerned parent and not a little fish anymore. :D thanks to reamur for the pictures. :) da best talaga TA.

to my dear dad, happy birthday!

as everyone is celebrating bonifacio day (or a big "no classes" day because of the storm reming/durian), the pitargue family is celebrating the birthday of two of their family members, my dad and my great grand father.

my great grand lolo's named after andres bonifacio. he was living with us when he died when i was around 10 years old. my dad was supposed to be named andre, but somewhere in the city hall, the typist encoded "i" instead of "e". everyone calls him andri or andrito (by my lolo). my dad's name sounds barok.

andres bonifacio was a "war freak" and a supporter of the revolution. my dad and lolo are the opposite. they love the quiet life, reading books and staying at home. my lolo loved his geese (that's were i got my daily dose of protein when i was small) and pigs. my dad loved tinkering with machines and gadgets.

dad looks like lolo andres so much. now i know how my dad will look in his 90s. we keep a big picture of him in my piano room (which used to be his room) at home. so whenever i go in there, there's a big smiling lolo andres greeting us. some people are creeped out by the pic, but i find it cute. i feel that lolo andres still lives there and he's always ready to greet me. ehe

happy birthday to two of my dear guys. :) i love you.

and a "revolutionary" pic to end this post. taken from random pictures.

Don't Give Up (You are Loved)

Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
When your heart’s heavy, I
I will lift it for you
Don’t give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you, I
I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can’t hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the hurt
That you hide
When you’re lost inside, I
I’ll be there to find you

Don’t give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you I
I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can’t hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

You are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world

Don’t give up
Everyone needs to be loved

You are loved

3 will be sent to the big dome

>> Tuesday, November 28, 2006

i really hate eliminations. not only are the contestants scared of being eliminated, the audience are also being sent to the "nervous chamber room". i feel i'm part of the elimination series.

last night, one was sent home while three made it to the finals. personally, there was no one deserving to be sent home, based on their performances last sunday. but if you would base it on consistency throughout the competition, miguel is the least candidate to stay. he did well last sunday, so i wasn't sure if it was his time to go.

the group was divided into two: miguel and gian, mau and jan. (commercial break) miguel and gian was asked to sit down, while mau and jan were asked to step forward. (commercial break). jan was asked to sit down. ryan agoncillo asked a hanging question to mau. tension builds up. (commercial break.) ryan asked mau if who among the three guys she thought should be in the hot spot with her. miguel was chosen, based on mau's observation on his performance in the past sundays. did mau make the right choice? (commercial break) finally, after a lot of commercial breaks and silence gaps, miguel was booted off.

i hope mr c keeps his promise on sitting down with miguel and writing a song with him. miguel will make it big, with his looks and young voice. he just needs a little motivation and time to move on, especially with the bulk of criticisms he has received over the past months. :) God speed, miguel.

big band night

last night, everyone shone in their own musical way. i guess it'll be difficult to choose who will be eliminated tonight because no one flopped or hit a wrong note in their performances. everyone got good comments, too.

jan - he did his romantic moves by giving mamita a flower and asked one person from the audience to sing (gail daw?). his facial expressions and movements were not awkward, compared last week and he had this spunk with his songs. maybe it's the choice of songs that put him in the good spot. yeah, maybe.

miguel - i guess his voice is fit for this genre. he didn't look boyish, nor as the rumors would say, "gay". i'm not good when it comes to gaydars and such, but there are some songs that brings out the feminine side in him. and last night, it didn't show up. his suave moves and voice placed him in the safe spot. even the comments were good. however, there was a tinge of elimination in the judges' comments even if they were positive. mr c would write a song with miguel "if he gets eliminated tonight".

mau - as diva as ever. i liked how well she pulled off the song "waray waray". i shall see her in the finals.

gian - whooohoo! my bet for the competition. as wonderful as always, i voted for him 10 times. ahahaha no more comment. i say less for those who deserve more.

so tonight will be a heart-thumping night. i don't know who deserves to be eliminated because they all did well. but i hope gian doesn't get eliminated tonight.


sing for the audience of one

>> Sunday, November 26, 2006

we weren't supposed to watch the concert at crossroad yesterday, but because of a last minute call received, we were able to get tickets for the "audience of one".

the dinner concert (well, concert for us because we didn't purchase a dinner ticket) was a 24th anniversary celebration for crossroad. bread of life ministries has been in the philippines for 24 years and i've seen most of its improvements. from the single service they had in miriam college (which they call maryknoll), to celebrity sports, to circle, and now to the lot which we call our own. we know have our own building and we stand at 77 mo. ignatia st. we know have crossroad 77. i never imagined that we would have something like this now, with a bookstore, tea spa, 24-hour gym, a library for highschool and college students (which they call the shire. aha LOTR inspired), outreaches in different parts of the philippines, a wushu philippine team, and a learning pub.

the church has been going through different fund raising activities for the improvement and development of the building. last night was one of those activities.

among the list of performers were isay alvarez, robert sena, raymond lauchengco, goya bulahan, and a guy whose name i don't know. there were groups of performers: the choir (yes, that choir which i auditioned for and quit after a few meetings because of work sched conflicts), the sonshine street kids choir (led by hans, yeahoo!), and the street dance advanced class.

my favorite song -- and i'm guessing everyone else in the audience area -- was when raymond lauchengo sang somewhere over the rainbow. lolo pete had his ukelele out and performed with him. everyone cheered on when they saw lolo pete on stage. he even wore a hawaiian shirt to go with his ukelele. it was priceless. raymond lauchengco's voice is just... love.

a "backgrounder": lolo pete is mom and dad's ninong at their wedding. he's an avid supporter of classical music and everytime we see each other, he would always ask me about my piano lessons. ehe, he said he'd recommend me to a filipino pianist who'd help me continue my studies. yeahoo! and he was the one who influenced my dad in buying a ukelele. teeheehee

congrats to the choir and everyone who performed last night. it was a wonderful concert, and i hope that this concert would be a testimony to God's greatness and goodness.

the night i've been waiting for.

POW - mamita's best for stage
movie: "so far so good"
the video was funny, she can act. and i love the facial expression when she wore the dress. not a complete package, she didn't wear girly shoes to match the dress. haha on her performance, it was a sablay ending: mahangin ang kanyang high note, which is not a normal thing for pow. i guess she's gonna love lea salonga; because she approved of pow wearing pants.
stage: "i'll give my life for you" from miss saigon
wow. blue eye shadow with the eye liner. may background props pa from miss saigon. may hangin note parin, pero wonderful performance. started the musical show with a bang. ahaha, di bagay ang vietnamese costume.

movie: "growing up"
compared to last week's performance, this one's better. but it's not the best performance, i still want that piano song. :) haha he won't be eliminated. too many fans. uh-oh.
stage: "can you feel the love tonight" from lion king
nice start. may sablay note somewhere in the chorus. his notes went everywhere when the song changed keys. un lang.

GIAN - lea's best for stage
movie: "eto nanaman ako"
OMG KAKAI. PAPA JUSTIN CUYUGAN GUEST IN PHILIPPINE IDOL! Heartbreaker! hahahaha anywaaaay. moving on, ouch yung film ah. no more comment, si gian na bet ko dati pa.
stage: "grease lightning" from grease
hyper song. too theatrical that i think he lost some of the notes. i like his movie performance more. pero... GO GIAN PARIN AKO!

movie: "bakit ngayon ka lang"
AHAAAY! JAN TOPLESS! hahaha. charing. jan's improving except for that one note that i think went flat. his vibratos are improving and it's not as shaky as before.
stage: "corner of the sky" from pippin
i really like his vibratos now, but some of his lyrics were garbled. and i don't like the shoestring style on his shirt. ahehe congratulations for being able to hold that last note in place. thank you.

MAU - lea's best for movie
movie: "diamonds are forever"
parang di marunong umarte si mau. for the first few minutes, di nagiiba yung facial expression niya. i like the ending. comedy. haha she's still a great singer and a great james bond ending. but she's not my idol. ehe. pero i would want her to win if gian doesn't get the spot. aha wooooah, standing ovation.
stage: "and i'm telling you i'm not going" from dream girls
she looks and sounds like a diva.

on the guest judge:
of all the guest judges, i like lea salonga best. not only that she has that tony award to brag about, she can give a full judgment because she does not only comment on musicality and stage presence, she talks about the experiences and lives of the singers in connection to the songs. i hope she's a mainstay.

on the films:
pwede sillang artista. and the love teams are very funny. bagay naman. the idols can act and can carry on their film roles. :) kewl.

other comment: (may be offensive)
um, can someone not put gretchen's daughter and her friends in the first row and right smack behind the judges? it looks like they're not appreciative of the performances and all they would do is to talk to each other, text, and tuck hair behind their ears (nag bangs pa kasi, tatakpan naman yung mukha). place the eliminated idols there instead, they'll pay more attention.

from joms:


land down under accent

>> Saturday, November 18, 2006

so i've seen the whole tirona-pitargue family at last.

kate, her boyfriend joel, tita tina and tito eddie arrived first last friday. i saw them the day they arrived in tita mimi's house. there was a short dinner and chitchats with the family. but i didn't get to talk to them that much because lola was busy entertaining them (with matching drama tears). i wasn't able to take a pic of kate and me 'coz everyone was talking with them and i couldn't take a minute to ask for a pic. kate has this dog that she left in australia. and guess what, they have a doggie hotel; complete with doggie pool and spa.

joel's nice. my lola likes him so much, "very respectful and magalang. ay nako, welcome na welcome siya sa familya." and he likes adobo and sinigang. o diba, filipinized. it looks like he wants to learn filipino because he always asks kate to translate some phrases for him. i guess he's not used to the weather because i noticed his ears grow red because of the humidity here. i do have a picture of joel, kaso lang it's blurry. boooo.

they showed us pictures of their house. and i'm sooo going to like their house because they have a lap pool. they have a lap pool. haha, if there would be a swimming pool burglar, it would be me. tito eddie gave me the sydney newspaper to read. our newspapers are faar more different than ours. our sunday newspaper is only one section of theirs. they have a lot of very colorful articles from all around the world. they also have this one section on arts, where they promote art and theater. i wanted to cry with all the theater shows i won't be able to watch. haha ballet shows, improv theater, musicals, museums, dances, everything that would make my musical body go crazy. i promise that one day before i die, i'll watch plays, and sydney plays are part of that itenerary. and i want to watch it in the sydney opera house.

they said that i'd be shocked if we see crissy. crissy arrived days after their arrival, which was a monday. crissy was my pen pal before even if i only saw them in christmas pictures. i saw crissy yesterday, after their trip from boracay. and boy, she's taller than tita tina.

it wasn't bad at all. we ate dinner in greenbelt and i got to talk to crissy more. haha we have the same phone! she still has this filipino spunk of bargaining. she said that when they were in boracay, she was able to bargain for a pair of shades that was originally priced at two hundred pesos. and she bargained with the native language, only with the australian accent. haha

crissy has a lot of stories, and it seems that she's enjoying her life. she could be a model one day, she got the body and the looks. and the dang height. good thing she didn't wear heels when we went to greenbelt or else we'd look like a pencil and a matchstick walking beside each other. harhar.

they were supposed to visit our house today, but there was a change in plans. they postponed the trip to tuesday. boo, i won't be able to see them again (not until next saturday) because i'll be at work. can't be absent, i have a lot of stuff to finish. better start cleaning my pig pen study table.

visit them in australia? soon. but not as early as next year. :)

to the woman who unearthed our dreams and put it into reality,


i love you missy, and super thank you for being block e's super nanay. without you, our Larawan wouldn't be a success, our work wouldn't be published, our craziness would be a chaos, and our laughter would be contained in the classroom.

you will always be THE missy maramara and block e will always love you.

uy, uy, uy... sino nakanood ng i love phil idol kagabi? andon si ira ah. anong meron na sa kanila? may improvement ba o ano? chismisan niyo ako. as in now na.

waaaaahhhhh........ :'c


ironic wish

>> Tuesday, November 14, 2006

for once, i didn't want ken to be eliminated last night (though i've been dying for the day that he gets kicked out.)

dj moe was the guest judge for this week's competition. and he made a bet against ken that if ken doesn't get eliminated, he'll wear a dress for the whole week. i badly wanted to see dj moe wear a dress, with that tatoo on his arm and that smirky face.

i noticed that moe is pretty honest and straight forward when it comes to giving out comments. i think that is what puts him in trouble with all the other actors and showbiz people. he seems like he's a nice guy with the nice dj accent, but he's too careless with what he says. and it makes him famous actually, having different tv interview and stints on various shows. i'm not sure if it's really a claim to fame thing.

if miguel gets eliminated next week (which i doubt will happen, because of the thousands of lasallians voting for him. haha), it'll be a tough competition for everyone.

i like mau's haircut, it made her look thinner because less face skin is exposed. the bangs cut off her face, making it look fashionable.

i heard that jan's taking voice lessons, which means that he has this passion to improve his craft. he just needs to be consistent.

gian is still a wonderful singer and a philippine idol. no more comment. consistency is the key.

pow, uuuy. she wore make-up with the blue eye shadow last sunday. wonderful. i agree with mr C's comment on "getting in touch" with her feminine side. consistency is also the key for pow. she's a potential idol.

miguel. too young, but inconsistent. i want the piano-looking swabe guy back. the pop look doesn't fit miguel. he needs to have that clean and classy look because that's what fits him.

i'm gonna watch this sunday's episode of the performances, because it'll have a classical/broadway theme. and the wonderful thing is that they'll have lea salonga as their guest judge! HWEEEEEE! I GOT MY WISH! mwahaha, tough genre, but it'll test the vocal range and singing abilities of the contestants.

oh, and another reason why i was happy with last night's phil idol? christian bautista was there. hahahahaha jologs opm crush, but hey, he's a theater actor! trumpeteer siya! and even though he didn't win in "star in a million", he kept his ground and was able to be part of the roster of singers.

let's go singers!


high school musical

>> Monday, November 13, 2006

i met up with my cousins yesterday in makati. they're part of the high school musical generation.

nikki's 12 years old ("no, i'm turning 13 na!") and taller than me. taller than me. all the time, i had her sit down because i don't want her standing beside me. nakakahiya ang height ko. haha she has these sweet eyes that sparkle everytime she speaks. her mouth forms a smile after every sentence. pa-cute effect, and i find it nice. :)

bea's the sweetest ten-year old ever. we were playing hangman in the living room and whenever we didn't get a letter right, she'd say, "awww." and she found it funny when we weren't following the hang man rules anymore. "we're cheating." she'll say, and let out a giggle. and before we parted ways, she wanted a hug.

monique. the baby of the family. it's been a long time since i've seen her, and she didn't cry when she saw strangers in the room. she gave me a wet kiss and a baby hug. "ate". awwww. she's three years old and she calls her stuffed seal a monkey. she knows almost all tv shows and the actors. she knows the colors and the objects around her. she loves to climb chairs and sit beside you. then she'll walk around the room, then sit beside you again. she'll stare at you until you notice her. she loves to say, "hi tita, hi ate."

and these three kids love high school musical. they'll stop and sing to the songs whenever they see the commercial of the movie on tv. nikki loves zach efron, nikki loves the song "bop to the top", and monique just loves dancing to the songs. they're smart for their age, but they're not the annoying type. they're not the know-it-all girls like sharpay. they're the gabriellas in the family. :)

i can't spend time with them often, because they live in dagupan. their parents are doctors there and it looks like i'll be seeing them next year or anytime the pitargue family decides to meet again.

bea: "go pitargues!"

text-text lang

here are cute text messages i got from text mates. just for laughs!

1112. Jesus and Satan competed on the computer. They started typing. They did every known job, reports, e-mails, attachments and downloads. But before the time was up, lightning, thunder and rain, and brownout came! Satan cursed. Jesus just sighed. When electricity was back, Satan lost every single thing he had done. But Jesus started printing all his files. Satan shouted: You cheated! Jesus just smiled. He did what Satan didn't know: Jesus saves.

1138. Be careful with Erap jokes that you text to your friends. Erap is now monitoring cellphone networks such as Smart, Sun and Globe to find who is making fun of him. This message is texted in English to avoid detection.

1085. Russian: We are first on space! USA: We are first on the moon! Philippines: We will be the first in the sun! USA: You can't go there, you'll burn. Philippines: We are not stupid, we will go there at night!

1086. Doctor: Iho, bakit mo naman sinapak yung lalaki kanina? Boy: E doc, nakita nya nang ninenerbyos ako sa resulta ng AIDS test, tapos, sasabihin pa nya, think positive pare!

1095. Sayang si pare. Ang tatay, summa cum laude sa Ateneo. Ang nanay, summa cum laude sa UP. Ang kapatid, summa cum laude sa DLSU. Ang asawa, summa ma sa iba!


work schedule

>> Friday, November 10, 2006

so it's the cramming period of my work life. help me reach my target by PUSHING me to the limit of my brain power. i need to be able to write 10 pages of fun activities per hour on grammar. it would be easy to write boring exercises. the part of thinking of enjoyable activities are the ones that need thinking. i need the latter now until april.

10 pages per hour.

50 pages per day.

that's the target i need to meet. short-term muna, parang far-fetched yung long-term goal namin eh. the 10 pages an hour would make it sound more feasible than the bulk of pages we need to accomplish by april.

i start today. TIME STARTS.... NOW!



>> Thursday, November 09, 2006

i posted an entry on the ultimate pianist guest book. and whohoo, i got an answer right away.

it's so pretty-ful!


cute baby pandas!
