International Women’s Day Tribute

Mark the date 8th of the current month; the world celebrates the day to honour women of all regions. It celebrates respect, love and appreciation to the female gender beyond its contribution to political, social and economical achievements. Thus, you can hardly believe what the world would be without the prejudice only a woman can give over. I just noticed it when I checked my friends in my social networking sites stream greetings the whole day. How would everyone depict a woman’s experience that is rejected nor obliterated with a sudden commotion? Neither can’t I express my answers. Everyone is entitled for the freedom of speech; so the women are.

Here are some facts about the International Women’s Day that even my son should know.
  • The first Women’s Day was initially celebrated at the 28th of February 1909.
  • It was then agreed with an idea to promote political franchise as well as equal rights for women.
  • In some countries like Russia, the said date is celebrated during the last Sunday of February each year which fell on March 8th accordingly to gregorian calendar.
  • May 8th, 1965 is the date declared by the decree of the USSR Presidium of the Supreme Soviet that is stated as a non-working holiday only in USSR; so as the China in 1922 and the Spanish communists in 1936.
  • In western countries, the date dully observed when the United Nations General Assembly states March 8th as the United Nations Day for women’s rights and world peace.
I’m glad that here in Philippines, Avon empowered the women through its beauty, self-expression, fun, speaking-out and health. Salute to that!

I have this video commemorating the women of local music. Some may know them and some may not but the bottom line is we are all here because we jive the same thing. Am I right?


Heading South Going Sonya’s Garden

It was early Sunday morning when we start things up going Tagaytay proper; to find the nature – loving place, Sonya’s Garden. A week before this, we were already spotting all possible locations and read blogs to rest assure ourselves where and which way to go. Determining landmarks, bus stops and wikimapping everything; knowing that we are commuting, indeed. So we go as stray as hungry hippies struggling block every block from Imus to Dasmariñas because of excitement and finally Tagaytay. We drop off at the block next to Casino Filipino and believing that it will only took few walks away to Sonya’s according to the map. Reaching the point where the bus will took its rerouting point, we started asking where Sonya’s Garden was. The guy told us that it will take 3 more kilometers away more. He instructed us more by taking Nasugbu jeepneys and drop off to Buck Estate then take a tricycle ride for us to reach the garden. Perhaps we didn’t expect that it is farther than what we’ve thought. My intuition is walking a bit will reach the garden but it’s not. Sonya’s garden is nested in the roads of Alfonso, Cavite and it is right after Tagaytay.


From Imus to  Tagaytay -  P72.00
Tagaytay to Buck Estate (going Nasugbu) – P12.00
Tricycle to Sonya’s Garden – P30.00

My brother is quite audacious and I know that. We left Imus by 10 am and now were here at Sonya’s at exactly 1 pm. Gasping to find the lobby; of course the restaurant’s jam packed! Sonya’s Garden is known for its greenery scenes that will capture your senses whilst cool temperature. Aside from spa services, they also offer an eat-all-you-can buffet which highlights fresh green salads with their signature dressing. Together with greens are numerous homemade spreads for their authentic wheat bread and the pasta with several sauces that adorn each platter. It all completes you whatever your personality is as well as your taste preference. So complete. I’m surprised. There’s no serving of rice. It was a total experience of buffet; getting burped by all freshly served greens.

After all the surprises, we take a chit – chat at their park which is open for the guests. Sonya’s Garden do accepts inquiries for weddings, debuts and other special moments that you would cherish for the rest of your life. At the same time, the place also accepts house accommodations for vacation purposes. Why not try to unwind and experience life like one. Make reservations!

Rock the Heavens Karl Roy

Perhaps his legend will never fade and it will remain as what he did the first time you saw him. First impressions last. Karl Roy has been in underground music scene for years. He continues to support Pinoy rock music and never afraid to do covers and mix music genre with his own style. I’ve noticed him first as the lead man of Advent Call (1996). Their original composition “Puting Ilaw” was fervently played in the airwaves of L.A. Rock and NU 107. Later P.O.T. comes with a bang with a fresh groove of funky Pinoy rock genre; which is also did by Sir Roy. Kapatid made great acclaim during year 2003 with “Pagbabalik Ng Kuwago”. Truly, Karl Roy never gave up with his calling. Meeting errands beyond the view of genuine Pinoy rock enthusiast makes the music scene seen far funkier with him; his styles.

Today, Tuesday, March 13, 2012; He died at the age of 43 and it is confirmed by his manager, Pam Lunar.

Karl’s brother Kevin, who is a member of Razorback, posted on his Facebook wall:

Growing Up With Karl
2012 in New Manila, QC
Karl was an inspiration.
Seeing Karl at 13 years old made me want to be him.
Karl was The Man. I soooo wanted to be him.
He asked me to be myself... and I did.

I learned my rasp from him....
I learned some moves from him - to his dismay

By his influence we are here….. Rock the heavens Sir Karl Roy. You will always be loved.


Chef Boy Logro’s Ping – Ping – Ping Life

Actually, a lot of cooking aspirants hail Chef Boy Logro as a supreme kitchen hero and that includes me. I’m a regular watcher of Delicioso which is hosted by Ms. Sam Oh and Ms. Jackie Ang – Po where they showcase easy steps on preparing bravura meals as well as pastries and desserts. They introduced Mr. Logro, in a certain episode, as the guest chef and did a scrumptious boneless crispy pata. As he demonstrates on how to debone the hind legs, skills flourish while he did it with a twang; so easy as a, b, c. For sure, several viewers of that show did impressed with Mr. Logro’s wittiness and cooking supremacy. Although, some people are making fun of the way he talks, it doesn’t matter. After all, he is the highest – paid chef in the Philippines. It's better to focus on the way he cook and not the way he talk.

Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro as we all know start in humble beginnings. He only finished his elementary years and didn’t manage to continue. They lived nearby in a small house by the sea with his father Justiniano as fisherman, mother Consorcia together with eight brothers. He went to his uncle in Manila to work and able to help his family as a houseboy in a Chinese Restaurant in Quiapo for P50/monthly. He speaks only Visayan language so he cannot understand Tagalog. Therefore, going to market wasn't that easy, he'll draw the things he needed and able to show to the seller then he’ll make transactions after it.

Later, he was employed as a dishwasher in Astral Villa Restaurant in Makati. Mr. Logro has been a protégé of Spanish Executive Chef Antonio Cuadrado Perez. With continuous perseverance and hardwork, Mr. Logro had a chance to work overseas in 1982. He impressed the Sultan in Oman which makes him accompany with His International trips enabling him to taste and learn foreign delicacies like French, Turkish, Japanese, Spanish and more. Furthermore, his family joined him in Oman provided with life that they could not ask for more.

After several years missing the place where they came from, Mr. Logro and his family finally went home in 1992. He joined the team of sous chefs in Manila Diamond Hotel and garnered the title of the first and only Filipino Executive Chef in a five-star deluxe hotel in the Philippines within three years. With all his accomplishments that even himself surprises him, he decided to settle down in the lands of Cavite. Mr. Logro thinks that he can share his talent to individual as well as youngsters and provide them an attitude and correct approach in cooking. Now, established in Gen. Mariano Alvarez, Cavite, Philippines is the Chef Logro's Institute of Culinary And Kitchen Services. They offer Kiddie Workshop, 10 Days Basic Culinary Arts Course, 10 Days Advance Culinary Arts Course an more. By the way, he's a very hands on chef.

Battling Tetris

I played Tetris during late 1990’s in Famicom by Nintendo. I admit that I go home late just playing Tetris at the local Famicom rentals elsewhere. Later, I noticed Tetris in a handy Brick Game. It comes in different colours, easy to hold moldings, user friendly interface, with built – in - sound and it is operated only by 2 pcs. of double A batteries. Cool! You can play it by an easy and hard game mode and nothing else. The game is consists of 7 different tiles which needs to form a line and your score is now counted by the lines you make. As you target the line quota it adds level and speed gradually and continue to prove that you’re the best; the one who can diminish lines as fast as possible then both of the speed and level goes back to zero. It was quite simple during those days playing the hard and easy mode. Until I noticed that my friend did have a 12 – in – 1 Brick Game! I was like, Uhh…was that possible?! Twelve different games in one then it had versions with 50 – in – 1, 100 – in – 1, 200 – in – 1….so on and so forth… My fascination with Tetris lasts until I graduated high school. Then my son had one during 2005.

Early last year, Tetris became a viral game in facebook. The thrill is you have an opponent online which you can play with until your battery runs out. Every time you sent clear up the lines, it will be send to your opponent’s window; making your opponent to diminish the lines fast. The higher the lines sent, the better. This game has some technicalities for you to improve yourself while beating the opponent like:
  • Earning Tetris Cash and Coins while playing and Upgrade your account.
  • Dress your tiles up for those who want a fresh start.
  • Tetris also offers you to earn Tetris Cash by completing tasks.
  • Tips and tricks so that you won’t be left behind.
  • You can also go have a battle at the arena with 5 other Tetris Players online and make friends. 
I believe that I spent 2 day writing this blog because I can’t get enough playing Tetris. Thank you, Alexey Pajitnov of the Soviet Union. He’s all responsible for these. Some research stated that continuous Tetris playing have good effects in brain including:
  • The players become more proficient, indicating more efficient brain activity for a task.
  • Along with greater cerebral energy consumption, the brain function and activity increases.
  • It boosts general cognitive functions such as "critical thinking, reasoning, language and processing" and increases cerebral cortex thickness.
  • Reduce the flashbacks experienced in posttraumatic stress disorder in some cases.
The question is will it be played forever? Hmmm…Remains to be seen. You can add ME and let the battle begin.


Jose & Wally Funny Antics Only at Eat Bulaga

Two weeks ago, Jose and Wally had their first concert in Eat Bulaga. It was a part of the show where those two sang their hearts out for the viewers of Eat Bulaga. Later, Bossing Vic Sotto came up to tell Jose, Wally as well as the whole casting of the show and the Filipinos around the world that there’s gonna be a major concert. It’s Jose and Wally Concert at Smart Araneta Coliseum to be shown on March 2, 2012.

At first Jose and Wally seemed to be confused, maybe Bossing might be joking. Vic Sotto cleared again that is all happening on the said date. Laughing Jose with a bit of nervousness thanked Bossing as Wally did too. After all, there have been three (3) tickets printed for that date because the event was only meant for them, Jose, Wally and Bossing. Kidding aside, Jose has been in the mainstream for years. His real name is Ariel Manalo. He had his first tv appearance at Valiente, a local noon time soap opera way back late 80’s. Then, it was year 2002 when he first appeared in Eat Bulaga and decided to change his screen name as Jose Manalo. Joey de Leon and Bossing always poke Jose for fun. Running smoothly with his funny antics, Jose became a regular co – host in the said show. Together with his long – time friend, Wally Bayola, they became a comic duo resulting a major concert on March 2, current year.

Eat Bulaga has been in the industry for almost 34 years. It is the longest running Philippine noon time variety show and still growing stronger. They have a project named “Plastic ni Juan” wherein they collect plastic bottles in every barangay they visited and recycle it into chair. They donate chairs to respective public schools in almost every corner of the Philippines. Perhaps, words can’t express enough how much blessing they give to each and every winner they pick day after day. For sure, your noon time won’t be the same if Eat Bulaga is not around. I bet that. Why not be there and experience it live.

How to get to Eat Bulaga:
  1. Whether you’re from North, East or South, take a walk heading to LRT Cubao Station (LRT Santolan - Recto)
  2. Drop off at Gilmore Station and you can reach The Broadway Centrum by minutes of walk.
Here’s the General Guidelines For Studio Reservations:
  • Reservation and entrance is free of charge.
  • Children below seven (7) years old are NOT ALLOWED to enter the studio unless they are contestants or participants of the show.
  • Mobile phones, food and drinks are strictly prohibited in the studio premises and shall be surrendered to the security guards for safekeeping.

  • For further questions, please call 721-2222, 725-7100, 0927-7918828, 0949-6432631 and look for Tonette Aduna or Hyacinth Uri.

*Each group has a specific requirement.


NBI Clearance Right?

Ok. First and foremost, you’ll need this as a requirement before getting employed. Aside from resume and other credentials, NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) Clearance’s purpose is to clear your identity to the government as well as to your future boss. Having one makes you a reliable citizen of the Philippines. However, the location of the said government agency has been subject to change with insufficient notice. Conclusions will all be made after a persevering individual engages himself to get one. Himself and the people of the Philippines.

I had my first clearance in the year 1999. It was located in United Nations Avenue near Philippine General Hospital. A couple of years after, I issued one again at the upper part of a mall in Carriedo. Conspiracy rose during those times because every Filipino will pay P20 as an entrance. Yes, air-conditioned place is assured and fast assistance awaits you. After four years, I had a chat to a friend of mine who’s in need of that certificate and she’s getting it from Monumento. You can reach Monumento thru LRT scrambling along hundreds of people going North. I haven’t gone there.

Now, after 12 years, my hubby needs one as a requirement to get a passport. Astonished with sudden abruptness when I knew that he venue was in United Nations Avenue again. Curiosity strikes with me so I managed to see the station where it is used to be. We were at the main entrance at exactly 4:00 am. Guys lane was separated from gals. There were about 500 applicants waiting outside by that time. The main entrance is placed at the front of Manila Doctors Hospital. Tarpaulins are everywhere for you to notice the schedules. Check time 8:30 am. His NBI Clearance was subject to be claimed after two weeks. He got a hit, his name also locates a guy from Pangasinan. They have the same name.

Looks like moshpit

Two weeks after, he claimed his document by 1:00 pm. After all, we arrived late like 10:00 am. I noticed another tarp addressing these info:

You can rent it for P70 each. Choose your size. You have your choice. To rent or not to rent.

At least we got it with ease.


Pastrana and His Allies at Nitro Circus

Seriously, we don’t have a cable tv so I just spent my time by scanning local tv channels and surprising myself whenever I catch new one that I like. It was like 4 weeks ago when its 23:00 hours and nearly fell asleep when I scrutinized Nitro Circus at Studio23. Johnny Knoxville introduced Nitro Circus and even more surprised when he, Jeff Tremaine and Trip Taylor created it. Knowing that they’re the ones responsible in Jackass Movies and Tv Series streamed by MTV.

Nitro Circus started at early 2009 and launched several episodes. They do various of dirt biking stunts and couple of fascinating eye-crashing rumbles that may require from mini 2-wheel drive to monstrous everything-armed 4-wheel drive. Bam Margera, Jhonny Knoxville as well as Jeff Tremaine also had their several exposures in some of their stunts in their ill-fated hobbies.

The crew consists of:

Travis Pastrana
Title: Pro action sports athlete

Jolene Van Vugt
Title: Pro moto cross racer

Jim DeChamp
Title: Pro mountain biker

Andy Bell
Title: Washed-up motorcycle rider

Erik Roner
Title: Pro skier/base jumper

Tommy Passemante
Title: Construction worker

Greg Powell
Title: Travis' cousin

Later 2010, one of the cast member Jim DeChamp mentioned in his facebook profile that MTV cancelled the show. Still with their witty works, Greg Powell suggested to make a movie instead. So on with the crew  made head bangin’ stunts at their DVD Releases Season 1 and Season 2.

I told my hubby about this and my son becomes a regular viewer too. Too bad it's too late to watch at night but we really have a talk that he needs to wake up early to go to school. Oh by the way, this is way how the Nitro Circus crew go to school.

Check the page for their regular updates. ;)


Hey Daydreamer!

There was this television ad that catched my attention not because of the product but rather the song played whenever this guy diggin’ ice cream. As he peels off the ice cream tag the tune kept on playing and stopped as this curly haired guy interrupts. Suddenly she glanced at the girl sitting right next to him. Doing all same the way he does. Hey Daydreamer! As the ad continued and he gulped cynically and made couple of glance while the girl smiles at him.

This tv ad has been in the prime time slot for almost a year if I’m not mistaken. Assumingly, I watched it for over a hundred times but it never stressed me. Choosing the right theme song in an advertisement could contribute an optimistic feedback to viewers. Believe it or not between the ratio of viewing this ad is equal with the number of hearing it all over again in my crib. Repetitions of k-i-s-s-i-n-g, oh you could just pretend, hey daydreamers were all staggeringly sang by my son, Avi. We spend lots of laugh and then we’ll sing together all day with a lot of lyric confusions. Good promotion.
Hey Daydreamer
Original Lyrics by: Somedaydream 

Oh you could just pretend to be with her all day
Remember the feeling when you first held hands today
Imagine her in your favorite white dress
Smiling at you as if she thinks that you’re the best
She tell you You and me, sitting on a tree,
K-I-S-S-I-N-G. You tell her
Baby hear me out will you marry me tonight
We’re in this make believe reality
And baby it’s just you and me

Coz when tonight she holds you tight
You wonder if this fantasy is right
Coz when reality comes to play
You realize you couldn’t make her stay

Hey Daydreamer
You gotta be prepared to leave her in your fantasy
Coz when it’s over, you gotta make sure 
that it’s you who’ll be with her

Oh you could be her soldier, her knight in shining armor
I’m sure you wanna make her feel how much you love her
And you wish to God that she can see the world in your eyes
So she can realize that she’s the girl in your mind
And you don’t mind if you don’t make it out alive
Coz you knew right from the start that she’s such a boy killer
(I’m dying, I’m dying~yeah)

Coz when tonight she holds you tight
You wonder if this fantasy is right
Coz when reality comes to play
You realize you couldn’t make her stay

Hey Daydreamer
You gotta be prepared to leave her in your fantasy
Coz when it’s over, you gotta make sure
that it’s you who’ll be with her

And I couldn’t believe we’re dreaming
I couldn’t believe we’re leaving this world
For one with more fantasy, just you and me
So that tonight we both can finally be

Behind this positive commotion is an Atenista named Rez Toledo. Armed with synthesizer, he’s into Pinoy Electro Pop which is all by himself – known as Somedaydream. He is currently managed by Hail frontman Champ Lui Pio who also made name under the music industry. I really admire those people who are aware about independent artist struggles and both helping hand in hand at the same time. Good job. You can check his facebook page and see his status as the youngsters hailed him a new chrush (Yep, he’s a good lookin lad).
Yes, without further ado, here’s Somedaydream early 2012 Gig Sched:


Original Pilipino Techno Music

Yes, we do have OPM bands who jive into this kind of music. Techno means electronic dance music but I talk about not the mainstream. At first you may think what may they really sound like but worry no more because they’ve been flourishing underground. Think Pedicab. They sound like so alternative to me when I heard them rockin’ the radio waves and even more when they’re performing live. I have list wherein I begin to experience their tunes more and for sure you are about to want them more. Were planning to see some of them this coming February (hopefully, not to get confused with our sched) and experience OPTM more.

Turbo Goth
Sure they do it electronically in rock! Turbo Goth is only occupied by Sonic Experimentalist, Paolo Peralta (on guitars, drum beats, and electronic sampler) and Tattoo Artist/Freelance Illustrator/Model, Sarah Gaugler (on lead vocals). They’ve been in the scene since 2008. Recently, I watched a video from them which they cover “Army of me” by Bjork at Eat Your beets event held at B-side. They’re tunes influenced by Radiohead, Daft Punk, Bjork and Muse will make you guess how they perform in front of you. Watch Paolo as he slam along the stage and feel his passion together with Sarah. Digest it.

Taken by Cars
I can’t even believe that they’re true blooded Filipino when I heard them. You might just go and sing with their compositions and I thank their producers for having courageous spot in their hearts to make them in the spot. Thank you. Taken by Cars composed of Sarah Marco (Vocals), Bryce Zialcita (Guitars), Isa Garcia (Bass/Synths/Vocals), Siopao Chua (Guitars/Synths/Vocals) and Bryan Kong (Drums/Synths/Sampler) beautifully creates sounds with infectiously – dance friendly and crafted as a new brand of indie rock.

Techy Romantics
Now this band got a touch of perfect electronic and melancholy fusion. Sweetness as is, the way I like them more. I remembered a tune from Everything but the girl creation. That was quite some time. Turns back time at a glance. Thanks guys. You make the world turn around with ease. Felt by gasping a breath and literally say “I’m loved and I’m really thankful!”

Yeah, they do it always in hardcore, almost. I even love to play their first album “Identity Theft” which was released in 2008 and now 2012, the tunes still lingers in my ears. Beng Calma’s voice is such a girl power plus the genius works of Malek Lopez and Ian Magbanua a.k.a. Morse who’s behind the lappy doing beats and programming. Completing the groups groove is the turntablist Caliph8. They’ve been in the scene since 2002. I guess words can’t really express how much gratitude I feel whenever I hear them. Certainly there’s something’s more. How about you? Digs.

Vince Noir Project
Now this is really something new but unfavorably I disagree the fact that this group is disbanded according to my ever reliable source. Allessandra who’s in vocals have a really sexy voice that snags you even me. Well thanks for including color in the world of Pilipino Music. They describe their tunes like one helluva psychedelic/electro/indie rock.

I hope that we continue to endorse our local talents as well as diggin’ underground. If you want to get a life then this is a perfect start or if it’s not then how do you deal with it? Long live the OPTM! 


Sucker Punch New Year Welcomes Me

Three days before welcoming 2012 states in the local news that my birth year’s gonna have a blast this 2012. I’m sticking to it hopefully, LOLS. Everything happens for a reason and because it’s complicated I don’t bother asking why. All work and no play make Karen a dull girl. I treat myself the first year’s day with watching good ol’ movies showed last year.

Sucker Punch intrigued me. It is like Martin Scorcece’s Shutter Island who starred Leonardo DiCaprio the difference is they are all girls inside the mental institution. Babydoll played by Emily Browning is about to be institutionalized by her stepfather at the Lennox House for the Mentally Insane.
After her mother and sister’s death, she was the one to be blamed according to her stepfather because of insanity. As she was introduced to her new ‘home’, the scene was about Babydoll getting lobotomized. As me wondering why, the institution changed into a mobster where the girls are treated as high class dancers and you know what I mean. As she dances, she imagines the other world and prepares to escape as well as her four other friends. There she met the Wise Man. He told the girls to get five things in order for them to escape whom where they are now. Assumingly, they are all persistent to get it but unfortunately three of her friends were killed naming Amber (Jamie Chung), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Rocket (Jena Malone). Desperate to escape, Babydoll instructed Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) to manage herself to go as she mesmerize the guys roaming at parking lot. The scene got backed when Babydoll is about to lobotomized and it was a success. She is now dull and looked like her name, Babydoll.

Babydoll, Blondie, Sweet Pea, Amber and Rocket

Movies like these are giving the audience what is like to be in there. After all, the viewer will pick its own idea beyond his wide array of musings and imagination. I say that the movie was quite poorly written but went plus on its visuals and the soundtrack, overall, I liked it.
