PhotoHunt - Self

I'm a bit conscious about myself so here are basically some parts of me.
I am a beach (be careful on how you say it hahaha) person. So bits and pieces of me were taken on the beach

I was trying to test the photo effect before I used it. Because the last time I used this camera (in October on the beach), all I got were white shots. See sample below

Good thing I bumped into a friend who's into photography and he made me his guinea pig model.

The kind heart and his looney

Am I obsessed or what?
Since I did not follow him through Idol's entire season seven, I am obsessed with a bit searching on him on the internet. And I am not gonna tell you that I am slaving my officemate in downloading all Cook’s songs and cute videos.
So first off, I got intrigued by the orange wristband he's been constantly wearing (I saw him on Ellen earlier today and he still wears the band) on his wrist. I found out that he wears it in support of a little girl named Lindsey Rose, a fan who is battling leukemia.
Second, I did not know that David Cook loves to goof around. The rockstar has a soft side.
This clip cracks me up everytime.

Heads or Tails - My Job

Some of you might probably know (assuming) that I work in a call center.
My country is competing with India in terms of outsourced customer and IT services.
Clients are mostly international in nature majority which translates to time, place and cultural barriers. Call Center job is well paid compared to other white-collar jobs but the the end of the bargain is getting a life which is not as normal as any skilled worker. Graveyard shift or getting up or getting home in the wee hours of the morning. On duty in every celebrated holiday that you could think of (with premium pay of course).
So basically or generally, this is how a call center dude can be described. Just click on the photo to magnify.Translation:
1. Malayo sa (work) - (lit.) far from/not related to (work)
2. Abubot - gadgets
3. Lamig - cold

Getting in the paintball warzone

Every year, we are having a family day at a local theme park here. One of the attractions is the paintball game.

As fun as it may sound, the thought of being hit by paintballs scares the heck out of me. What if I got hit in my vital organs or in my face?

There’s a little voice in my head that tells me I could do it. So I tried my hardest to check on available safe paintball masks out there and look what I have found! is an online retail expert on Paintball and Airsoft Gear with unbelievable low prices. It takes pride in meeting your expectations as an online buyer and it also offers free shipping on Paintball guns, Paintball goggles, Airsoft equipment and any gear that you will need to safely enjoy the game. That include jerseys, hoodies and other flashy apparel,

My friends agree that safety comes first.

You better ask around before stepping into the paintball warzone. Ask you friend or get help from 877-814-42.

Guitar Hero

This one made me giggle at David Cook. Very natural yet sexy and funny.
Not bashing Archie but he looks like a schoolboy who just got off school with his shorts on. Actually, I saw Matt McGuirre (on Disney's Lizzie McGuirre) did it better and he was just 9 yrs. old then.
They tried to pull out a Tom Cruise (in his flick Risky Business) in this Guitar Hero commercial and Cookie did it with flying colors!

The rightful investment

While people know that a good investment should be made on things that appreciate overtime, getting jewelry make them think twice at it is prone to robbery and heaven forbid it might put your life in danger.

Well if you have the money that really decided on putting it in good things, why not try getting gold bullion from Monex Deposit Company (MDC)?

The Monex companies have been America’s gold, silver and precious metals investment leader for a reputable track record of 30 years.

You could have your gold in coin or ingot form and they are only available for personal delivery so you can be assured that it will not be lost in transit.

Cook got Archie served

My first time to watch Idol Season 7 was the Mariah Carey week.
I got wowed by the bartender from MO.
Since then, I catch up on Cook's performances on YouTube and it's only him that I watch.
This morning, I slept as usual at 2:00 am. Since it's Thursday, I got up at 4:30 am for the early morning church congregation.
When I got home at 7:00 am, I got a text from Tim that Idol judgment day is on.
I turned on the TV just to see the show. I knew that Archie's gonna win based on the trend of votes and the "sweep" comments by the judges.
Then my heart dropped as Seacrest announced that Cook is the last man standing!
I don't know but when Cook sings, I feel the connection. His sincerity that he loves what he is doing.
I guess, I won't be seeing him in my country anytime soon. Archie perhaps.
Cheers to DC!
Long live the rockstar emo cowboy! Catch him shuffle with ZZ Top here.

My gastronomic wanting

Last month, my friend Tim and her hubby celebrated their anniversary with a buffet dinner at a five-star hotel.

The buffet had international cuisines served. Hearing from Tim and looking at the pictures of what they’ve had, I am actually wanting to have a good gastronomic experience.

I am not thinking actually of splurging on hotel buffets because that would definitely cost me a month’s budget. While I try not to go easy on my food budget, I don’t want to be harsh either. I am a picky eater but I am telling you I eat to my heart’s content when I liked the food.

I was checking on San Diego dining guide and found out that they’ve got the widest listing of San Diego Restaurants from fining dining to laid back set up.

If you’re like me who is always on the go, you could narrow your research according to cuisine, atmosphere, special feature or proximity. The absolute local flavor served online.

And if you’re like me who’s always undecided what to pig out with have among Seafood, Vegetarian, Continental, American, Sandwiches, Delicatessen, Thai, Vietnamese or Italian, go get the San Diego restaurants coupons to make sure that your pocket won’t be ripped off. Unless you have a date who’ll pick the tab.

Heads or Tails - Peace

I'm taking peace.
Holding up your index and middle fingers makes me think of the cool hippies. The hair, the get up minus the weeds of course. hahaha
We Filipinos always love to show the peace sign in almost every photo op.
It has become a picture staple.
On a serious note,
Humanity has been in constant thirst for peace. Ironically though that one has to kill for the love of peace. But no matter how many tons of blood have been shed, our thirst for peace has has yet to be quenched, as yet. And it appears that we are suffering from polydypsia - excessive thirst.
Okay that's too serious.
I also notice that at the end of almost every rap song, you'll hear Peace!
Oh of course the classic, wishing for "World Peace" trying to channel Miss Congeniality.

Peace out y’all!!!

IT security against theft

Being dynamically daring is one of the critical characteristics of a good company. Amidst all the gaps and challenges of the equally dynamic demands of consumers, one has to keep its resilience yet meeting the expectations of the people they serve.

A very classic example is Symark Software’s powerbroker and PowerPassword. Most businesses around the globe run on UNIX and Linux in terms of mission-critical financial, human resources and other applications.

With the use of Symark’s PowerBroker and PowerPassword-UME will allow the most secure deployment of the new HP Integrity Servers and the HP-UX 11i v3 Operating System as it they restrict and monitor access to the classified information.

We are aware that there are potential IT thefts and this is where Symark Software steps in.

The perfect tandem works this way: PowerBroker will protect the root account (which is the most targeted administrative account) from both external and internal threat while PowerPassword-UME will enable IT managers to have centralized control over deployment, modification and deletion of individual UNIX and Linux user accounts.

David versus David

Crowd’s favorite (Archuleta from Murray, UT) and the Idol Mean guy’s man (Cook from Blue Springs, MO) are the last two men standing on Idol's 7th Season Finale.
I know Cook must win for the love of emo.
But somehow I’m wishing and hoping that this highly talented bartender/musician/cowboy gets booted out.
For some selfish reason.
Idol rejects or losers have been doing mall shows here in the Philippines. Started by Bo Bice followed by Elliot Yamin and a handful more. The latest was Daughtry. But come to think of it there’s one AI winner, (shoot I forgot his name, the one that resembles Jay Leno and the one who beat Katharine McPhee.) who did a mall tour here.
Anyhoo, I am thinking that if Cookie lost to Archie, he’ll settle with mall tours in the third world. And it’s my only chance to see him in person!
I’ll give him my xoxo.
So to my blogger friends in America, please vote for Archie. Make it Archie as Cookie so that Cookie will be packing his bags and set off to my country and then we can get married!

Face to face

On my way home from the office, I took a jeepney.
A lady went in and took the seat parallel to mine. She was wearing a uniform that has a logo of Seattle's Best on the chest. A few minutes later, a man came in and sat beside me face to face with the Seattle's Best chick. The man was wearing Starbuck's uniform.
I think the lady noticed it first. She looked at the man's chest where the Strabuck's patch was sewn then she looked on her chest.
I don't know if they felt it, but I think it was awkward.
Or I had so much caffeine today that it started to kick in?
Kinda of weird.

The Ironman on Xbox?

The Ironman was the second movie that I have watched this year, first was a local one. I really love the movie and it topped the movies that opened these weekends.

The movie was a sure hit that a PC game has been lifted from it. Cool!

It can now be played on Xbox 360 and to make you feel like you are Tony Stark in iron suite, go play with a Pioneer HTS-GS1.

Fine, you know that I am not a techie person. I just learned about these cool stuff from ShopWiki. I am an Ebay user since 2005 and I have not shopped there for months already. Browsing through the sellers’ site is kind of time consuming so I am in search for a good online shopping site were it will help me find anything and everything that I need with a breeze because I am still busy as a bee.

Savoir Faire

When it comes to watches there is absolutely no doubt that Swiss made time pieces are at par when it comes to durability and style.
I bought my first Swiss watch when I had my first pay check in 2000 and up to now, it still works.
I am pretty sure that authentic Swiss watches can really stand the test of time.
Since many knows that Swiss watches are the most sought after watches, how can we be sure that they are authentic and are really made by Swiss in Switzerland?
I tried to search on some brands and I came across theses corum watches The makers of these watches have been around making not just authenticate but “different” timepieces since circa 1955. They have started and still making them in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
Now that’s old school.
The collaboration of two blood-related geniuses gave birth to Corum style watch with absolute distinction. Style, beauty and craftsmanship locked in every timepiece.
They have these style classified as Men’s Complication, Ladies’ Complication, Men’s Dress, Ladies’ Dress, Bubble Watches and so much more that you could hardly find in any brand.
Severin Wunderman’s hunger for daring yet highly quality watches made him purchase the Corum house and views the future of Corum as the house that will create watches that meet the criteria of savoir faire and aesthetics with the daring approach.

Heads or Tails - Any Tom, Dick or Harry

I thought of Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway.
At the start the he was cast away until the end of the movie I was sobbing.
On the looney side, who would forget how Tom Cruise jumped up and down the couch on Oprah showing his overflowing joy being with Katie Holmes?
That was just aaargh, I can't think of a word to describe it.

Moving on, I love Harry Potter. It's the only book series and movie installments I was able to follow.
And the Prince of Wales, Prince Harry. He is very involved in propagating children's and people's welfare. The empathy he inherited from the Princess of Wales.
He also took his part in fighting for peace among humanity.
A very unusual act for a Royal blood.

Here's a Dick

The June Bride

I have mentioned in my earlier post about the June Bride thing. While February has the love bugs, June has wedding love bugs.

Our teammate who we fondly call, Boss Del, who’s not our real boss by the way, is about to tie the know with her SO in June.

Although the wedding will be a simple ceremony, we are so excited because for one it’s an intimate occasion. She just invited people that are truly close to her.

The wedding and the reception will be held in a church and a function hall in our Alma Mater respectively.

She already has her simple yet elegant gown and shoes to wear to the special occasion. Everything has been set.

When I asked her if she had Bridal Registry, she said she has none so I asked her what she wants she said it’s up to me.

Knowing me who’s always on the run, I would not have time mall hopping and stressing out on what gift should I give her. I want something special that she could use. So I checked online and came across Custom Crystal Attire at and I found so many fabulous and useful gift ideas. This online store specializes in everything a bride needs from cakes, bouquets, bridal accessories upto the after party apparels like custom crystal rhinestone t-shirts, tank tops, bikinis and flip flops.

Since I want something unique for Boss Del, I find this site’s create-you-own garments advantageous.

Oh and I remember she said in passing that she has no wedding favors to give away, I think I might be of help to her on this one.
