Hoping for the best..

I was really excited to post my RAVE on the restaurant Al Dente. I even took pictures, even if they were amateur - I was proudly going to post them here. Unfortunately, I had some bad news given to me late yesterday afternoon. And so I have to postpone that post. My good friend Cubie - who's based in Hong Kong - has stage 4 cancer. I was and still am in shock. When my brother called to give me the news - I was in shock. As soon as I put down on the phone - I cried so hard and immediately called Cubie. And within a few seconds - she indeed confirmed that she was diagnosed with Lymphomatoid Granulomatosis - and it was already in Stage 4 and that it has spread to her chest, her lungs especially. The news broke my heart in so many pieces. I couldn't stop crying - I was inconsolable. I couldn't believe that she has cancer - she just celebrated her 27th birthday last February 21, 2007. She's so young!! What happened? With the few minutes we spent on the mobile

It's FRIDAY again!

The weekend is finally here! Not that it was a long wait. Lately, I've been noticing that times flies so fast! It was as if it was just Monday yesterday, and now - it's already Friday! Since I've become an avid listener to Magic 89.9's Friday Magic Madness - I forgot all about the nice songs the APO Hiking Society have been singing! It makes me smile so wide when I hear old OPM songs - and I don't know why! Why don't they make songs as nice a before? I've long appreciated New Wave songs - but it was my Panget's era selection that made me hooked on it. His iPod is FULL of 80's songs - I mean FULL of it! So whenever we go out - I am forced to listen to them. Some songs - I've never even heard of before!! Hahahaha.. :) Happy Weekend everyone!! :) Cheers!!!

Carlo Adraneda: CONGRATULATIONS!!

Our childhood friend just passed the Medical Board Exams!! Congratulations!! Yey!!

American Idol: Top 12 Guys..

I have been a fan of American Idol since Season 4. I was blown away when I heard Carrie Underwood audition, I predicted that she'd win and she did!! I fell in love with Constantine Maroulis' stare and performan c. I think that was the season where the upped the age qualification of the contestants. This was also the first time (for me) to see rockers entering the competition. Last year, I was with Team Daughtry - and I was really disappointed when he was booted out. I'm so happy that he has an album out, and his song is great! Everytime I hear it, I can imagine him singing it! Yeah!! This year - the 12 hopeful guys - well, some of them were okay while some were great. There's always room for improvement - and as the show progresses they will indeed become better singers and performers as well. I was so excited to watch the 12 guys perform tonight, it should have been a perfect early evening for me - but then there was a glitch on the satalilte feed of Star W

Nostalgia Bloggista of the Week

I have always loved old Manila, and so when I came across the blog Nostalgia Manila - I became an instant lurker. The features of this blog - make me smile and reminisce old times. I appreciate old Manila very well, in fact - I love seeing the old buildings and facades in downtown Manila. I also love listening and singing along with OPM songs. I can't emphasize enough that I adore Gary V's songs pre-Born Again era. I used to watch his movies, one that I can't forget is the one where he shares the bida role with Jestoni Alarcon. Yes, I'm a tagalog flick FAN-atic, my friends can attest to that. My favorite season? Christmas - of course? Why? Four words - Metro Manila Film Festival. Two weeks ago, I got the shock of my life (well, for that week) - because I was sent an email by those behind Nostalgia Manila and they wanted to feature me as their Bloggista of the week! As I read through the questions - man, did I want to answer everything as specific as possib

Burgoo: Sodexho, HSBC and etc.

Last Friday, my Panget and I couldn't figure out where to have dinner. Since my Panget had a Php500.00 worth of Sodexho gift certificate, we decided to just use it. We went to Burgoo at Tomas Morato since we saw their logo on the Sodexho brochure. When we were seated, we first asked if we could avail of the Sodexho GC - the manager said yes - it was as good as cash. But we weren't satisfied with just using the GC, we then asked if there were other offers or promos by certain credit cards. The server and manager told us that they had the following promos from the following credit cards: a) American Express Peso Platinum - 15% off the total food bill b) HSBC - Purchase any dish with the same worth of certain appetizers and get the appetizer for free! c) Banco de Oro - free dessert of some sort We asked the manager again if we could possibly use the Sodexco GC and avail of any of the credit card offers. The manager said yes, so we thought to ourselves - good deal right? I

Dig

I am currently loving this song by Incubus. "Dig" We all have a weakness But some of ours are easier to identify. Look me in the eye And ask for forgiveness; We'll make a pact to never speak that word again Yes you are my friend. We all have something that digs at us, At least we dig each other So when weakness turns my ego up I know you'll count on the me from yesterday If I turn into another Dig me up from under what is covering The better part of me Sing this song Remind me that we'll always have each other When everything else is gone. We all have a sickness That cleverly attaches and multiplies No matter how hard we try. We all have someone that digs at us, At least we dig each other So when sickness turns my ego up I know you'll act as a clever medicine. If I turn into another Dig me up from under what is covering The better part of me. Sing this song! Remind me that we'll always have each other When everything else is gone. Oh each other.... Whe

A haircut, a Chai Latte and permed eyelashes..

I had a haircut, had my eyelashes permed, finally ate at a Persian restaurant Arya, and had my cravings for a Chai Latte satisfied. That's sort of what happened during the weekend. I went for my long overdue haircut with my hairstylist Jing Monis at Propaganda. He's been cutting my hair for the past 8 years. I love him because he's the only one who can handle my hair - or so I think. I've been super loyal to him - I swear, ask my friends. He's the best for me because he makes me look fabulous EVERY single time. To think that when I had short hair, I went to him once a month - now that I have long hair, well - those 12 times a year has been cut to a mere 2 times a year! I love my new hair! It's still long but still - it looks different! Yehaaaaa!! :) Had dinner at Spring Deer - I swear I love the food there! And for the taste and quality of the dishes, the food it is fairly priced. You'll just have to be in a group to appreciate the dishes as th

It's Friday again!!

I heart Fridays! I always look forward to Fridays! For some strange reason - one them is because of 89.8's Friday Magic Madness (thanks to my Panget's 'era'). I love listening to OPMs especially those sung by Gary Valenciano - pre Born Again era, I think I've written about this a few posts ago. I can't help but smile and be giddy when I hear his songs over the radio. Like what my friend Jen said ' Panalo siguro , if we watched a Gary V. Concert' - Yes, I think panalong- panalo nga . The title of the song I was listening to was 'Wag mo na sanag Isipin' and here's the lyrics. It's so funny!! and True!! hahaha.. Wag Mo Na Sanang Isipin Gary Valenciano Wag mo na sanang… Ano pa kaya ang dapat gawin ng isang katulad ko Upang paniwalaan at intindihin mo Ang mga nais sabihin ng puso ko Bigyan mo ako ng pagkakataon Paliwanagan ang iyong isip Kahit sandali lang, patutunayan ko lang Na mahal kita hanggang ngayon Oh, ang babae, nakakatu
