Lilo-an Parola Festival

Parola is the Filipino term for “lighthouse.” In honor of Lilo-an’s century-old landmark, local government officials decided to organize what has been called as Parola Festival. It’s just like any Mardi Gra in the country with contigents from different barangays in the municipality vying to bag home the prize. They tailored their presentations with the theme about giving light to life or something. What’s noteworthy was almost all of the 7 contingents had battery operated lighted costumes that look so dazzling that night. They also made use of miniature lighthouses as props and most of which are burning with real fire. The respective festival queens who spearhead each presentation were great looking kids. Yup, all the contigents were grade school pupils. They all have strong points and weak points. One contingent had very beautiful props with a realistic banca and the fisherman getting his fill from the sea. One had beautiful choreography. One had both. I wasn’t able to take down note…

Summer So Far

Got so bored so I decided to get my creative juices flowing by glamming up my pictures on my recent trip to Lapu-lapu City. I was just obsessed with Photoshop gradients, brushes and typography. It all happened last April 17 (with high school co-CAT officers) and April 18 (with my family) all in the same resort. You couldn’t imagine how much my body ached and how my skin darkened big time. But all in the spirit of having fun with the people I love, as usual, I don’t mind at all. Have fun because life is short and as I’ve learned from Jim Carrey’s recent movie, “Say ‘yes’ not because you have to but because you want to”.To know more about Bahia Beach Resort: +63 32 254 8018

Random TV Moments: An ugly scandal, close to death encounters and Erap jokes

Last night was another coach potato moment for this summer bum and it is definitely one of the most explosive nights ever and let me walk your through why I said so.BIG UGLY SCANDALThe cheating wife of a celebrity. The Insider showed the interview of the baseball coach of Larry King’s children. The man claimed he had an affair with the American TV host’s wife. Not only that he said that she talked about marriage all the time with him saying “he’s gonna die soon so stick around.” As if that wasn’t enough, he claimed that she had told the children that he is in love with her so the kids have to confront him if he is getting in between their parents. Can you imagine what the kids have to go through with that? But what kept me at the edge of my bed, was when he claimed that they were doing “it” even when Larry King’s show is on the TV and did I mention that they do it in Larry’s bed itself? That is outright immoral, weird and degrading on their part. But to come out with these allegations…

What Gibo, JFK and Obama have in common

Saw this on Facebook and I think this is worth sharing. It came with the following description:G1BO's inspiring and charismatic leadership reminds us of Ninoy Aquino in the Philippines and JFK, Jr. of the United States. The unanimous choice of colleges and universities across the archipelago, including UP, ATENEO, UST, PISAY & La Salle among others; not since OBAMA has there been a surge of millions of new votes all coming from the youth. Is a future camelot at hand in the Philippines with a G1BO administration?To know more about him:

This summer go biking!

With all the Go Green revolution going on, I suggest we all lubricate our bicycles which has rusted from the busy school year that was. This is summer. It is meant to be fun, sun and green. It actually has great benefits aside from strengthening relationships. And to give you a heads up, I have compiled the best benefits you can get from cycling!
1. Cycling is good for your heart and health
Two words: Good health!
Reduces risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity.
But one interesting finding that I've stumbled upon is that:
One rough calculation suggests that new cyclists covering short distances can reduce their risk of death (mainly due to the reduction of heart disease) by as much as 22 per cent. [1] 2. Cycling will help with weight management

Not that I’m obese myself but to those who are full bodied, this could be a great opportunity to shed off some pounds and at the same time wander and marvel at the beauty of your community.
3. Cycling can improve your mood


Reasons Why I Will Vote Gibo and the Sims 2 “Lipad” Ad I made for him

offers realistic solutions.
He is NOT tainted with corruption or any scandal.
I loved him so much that I decided to create a music video/campaign for him using my favorite computer game, The Sims 2. With the inspiring song “Lipad” by Rivermaya, I decided to incorporate elements of the plane, him interacting with the commoners, and adding his strongest points as subtitles all throughout, I proudly present to you the

Lipad – Sims 2 Gibo Music Video.

Because he could really need a little more exposure.
Even my own brother has told me to stop campaigning for him because the odds are that he will lose, given the figures that the surveys show and the fact that the voting public is mostly made up of people that (let’s just say) don’t belong to the thinking class and who only depends on the mainstr…
