It has been a week now since the killer typhoon Haiyan or locally called Yolanda hit my native land. The devastation it left the northern section of Tacloban shock the whole world as this super typhoon left a historical event, but not in a celebratory mode.
For weeks, I’ve been having tremendous problems with my old laptop, it is failing on me while at work, and it drags my productivity. It has been my desire to get a new one because my old one had served me so many years. I thought the selection process in picking a new laptop is easy, but I was wrong, there are just so many things I prefer to have, and so many brands to choose from.

Some of you felt you were alienated when you hear geeks/tech lords talking about mobile processors. Like which one is the beast, which one is good for gaming, which one dries up your battery fast. And that bewildered eyes of yours, is running crazy, aside from other parameters like budget constraints, phone size, availability; these jargons just add up to your dumbfounded brains: Exynos, Snapdragons, Tegra….But don’t lose hope, the world did not end in 2012 😛
I recommend that you check your mobile specs using the CPUBoss (yeah just like a boss!) before you buy or do an upgrade.
You will be able to see the performance, gpu, browser, feature comparisons as well as the advantages over the other. Isn’t it cool? So try it out and hope that helps you decide, which one suits you. 🙂
News Headline: Maiinit na balita…Anne, walang panty!
I really don’t know why people are making a buzz out of Anne Curtis’ birthday performance in ASAP. Perhaps the birthday girl would really want to make her day memorable.
Honestly, it doesn’t matter if she wears one from this angle. It’s really none of our business, and it’s not really the first time hearing of an artist being panty-less, right? Uhh you’re right.
Ladies, this is not a sign that we are running out of panties, so don’t panic. Gents, why are you making it your wallpaper? Come on now!
Listening to them is just like attending to a yoga class, very relaxing but creating good vibes afterwards.
Don’t you just love them with their great artwork? 🙂 Y’all have a wonderful day!
2012 holiday season had passed, I hope y’all had a great time! For some enigmatic reasons, they say that 83.7% of the total world population, is in the mood for love making, random consensual-sex, getting laid, smooching here there and everywhere, cuddling-anytime-you-want during yuletide season…
Do you actually believe that? And maybe this is the very reason, why December, is the best time people throw more pickup lines, to get laid or at least set the mood :D, compared to any other months of the year. Without further adieu, here are the best Christmas & New Year’s pickup lines?
#1: Believe me, if you ever saw it, you would even say it grows.
#2: In the spirit of Christmas, would you like to jingle my bells?
#3: Let’s go somewhere and make this as not-so-silent-night.
#4: It’s 2013! Let’s start the year with a bang!…..on the floor!
#5: If your left leg is Christmas, & your right leg is New Year, can I visit you between the holidays?
#6: That’s not a candy cane in my pocket, but that’s for you honey!
There you have it! So would you like to share some of your signature holiday pickup lines too? I’m psyched to know! 😀
P.S. I’m just shitting on the population statistics thingy, just made that up 😛
Have a great day and head, I meant ahead!
Taking into consideration that my future self will get a tattoo, I hafta make sure that the artist at least know how to spell. Here are the epic fail body designs:
There you have it. Hope this brings a smile and good vibes! Tada!
Got this from a blog site I stumbled upon, and so here’s my a-z list, as my year-ender post for 2012! See you next year!
A. If you could get away with one murder in your lifetime without any legal, social, or emotional repercussions, would you kill someone?
No, I don’t think I had that criminal tendency.
B. What is your first thought when you receive a compliment in your blog, are you excited for the idea of someone from potentially the other side of the world wanting to talk to you or fearful that someone will criticize you?
It is always exciting to get to know people with different culture, even geographical locations…for as long as he/she keeps me interested.
C. Have you ever looked down on someone because you thought your religious views were superior?
Never. Respect begets respect.
D. Would you rather know everything the universe has to offer but in exchange lose all emotions or remain the way you are now?
Remain the way I am now.
E. If you could live and be healthy without sleeping or eating/drinking, which would you cut out of your life?
Hmm could be sleeping, so I could eat and drink all night. 😛
F. If you could take on the exact body and form of anyone else on Earth, who would it be?
No one, just the same body as I have now. No more adjustments, no more disappointments, since I’m used to it.
G. Would you rather burn or freeze to death?
Freeze to death.
H. If it meant it would solve all world hunger, war, disease and bigotry, would you spend the rest of eternity in Hell?
No, I don’t believe in Hell, nor had been there.
I. Was the first crush in your life something you had or something someone had on you?
Hmm something I had. I was 6 that time.
J. Could you live without having sex ever (again) in exchange for eternal youth?
Eternal youth. I can always touch myself anyways. LOL
K. Have you ever watched a full length pornographic movie?
I did, character’s name is Liza.
L. The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
M. If you could have the ability to manipulate matter or energy, which would you choose?
N. What was the worst nightmare you ever had?
End of days kind of scenes.
O. Would you rather spend one year with your one true love just to never see them again or the rest of your life with second best?
One year with one true love. I never settle for anything less.
P. All the sequels/remakes/adaptations/rip-offs in movies nowadays, good or bad?
Bad. I hate remakes, it means lack of creative inputs so I will just redo the old ones.
Q. Would you rather be dirt poor and emotionally fulfilled in life or be rich beyond imagination and emotionally dissatisfied for life?
Poor and emotionally fulfilled. I can always find ways to survive, being emotionally happy is something I cannot find elsewhere, nor get an alternative.
R. Do you have any (secret) feelings of bigotry to any group of people?
Yes to religious bigots. Kayo na ang maliligtas! (Only your group will be saved)
S. Would you rather be the only person in the world that can read minds or have everyone else in the world be able to read minds except for your own?
Domination so its the first one. But if I want a chaotic world, then that’s the second option.
T. If everyone in the world would automatically only know one language, which language would you choose?
Body language where kisses and hugs can suffice.
U. If you were old enough and not in a situation where it would be inappropriate, would you sleep with one of your (past) school teachers/professors?
V. A world without religion, good, bad, neutral?
A world without religion is close to impossible, people will worship stones, woods or anything. I think its bad.
W. The men’s rights movement, legitimate cause or laughable, and why?
The fact that there is such thing as men’s rights movement, could mean that something is not polished on our current gender rights. So their claim is legitimate, people regardless of gender, must be equal in all aspects.
X. You can eliminate one of your five senses to substantially strengthen the others, which one and would you do it?
Strengthen sense of sight, eliminate sense of smell. I had a phase wherein I always get colds, and felt that my nose isn’t working anymore, so yeah I’m trained for it. 😛
Y. Do looks mean anything to you? Don’t lie, could you fall in love with someone you thought was ugly?
Liking someone who is not my type, sure. Waking up everyday in bed, with that someone — No. I should have fallen in love that much with that guy before it happens.
Z. Can you understand the mindset and logic used by the opposite spiritual opinion? Example: an atheist understanding the belief in a higher power and vice versa.
I believe I can. We can control the way we think, and the things we believe in, even for a moment.
When everyone is watching, waiting for the game to start, I am on dreamlandia mode, since I worked for night shift. The news spread fast, was able to get the result before actually seeing the fight. I have been a Pacquiao fan, he has given our country a great pride and respect when it comes to boxing discipline…but all has come to an end. The entire Philippine nation may kill me when I say that I am expecting the result to be Marquez taking over Pacquiao this time, but I did not expect it will be a total knockout just like that.
Giving credits to the power of Marquez, he made that fake move that gives that wide opening and an opportunity for that big right punch. Juan Manuel Marquez is the perfect nemesis of Manny Pacquiao, and it would be difficult for the later to have a better revenge against the former, unless he will give him a KO. A knockout of Marquez is almost close to impossible , ever since the rivalry started. It is not Mayweather Jr. that can match up Pacquiao, but its the accuracy of Marquez. With the two straight losing mark for Manny, others had been hoping him to retire from his boxing career, before he soaked down so low, just like what happened to other legends, in the likes of Mike Tyson. Pacquiao is absolutely great fighter, no doubt on that, we can even consider him a legend, with the achievements he brought to himself, but I believe though that he should shake up a little if he wants to continue his boxing career, or retire early rather than beaten up badly by Marquez or other contenders. I am saddened that the result go against what all Filipinos had wished for, but Marquez had given him that punch he and the rest of the world, would never forget.
