Because of too much french fries and soy milk...

So I decided to write again. I thought that I would never update this blog any more. I even forgot my password --what a shame! Anyways, still the same old me who likes saying anyways -- and so too -- in my every write up. Blame it to my very limited vocabulary! I just finished eating one large french fries as my first meal of the day. Oh wait, couple that with a glass of soy milk that caused my left nipple to shrink. The last two statements have no connection to the first ones. At all!  You see, told you that I am still the same. I still have this digressing writing skills and it's getting even worse in the past years. It's funny how this kind of writing skills gets worse when you are not writing at all. Tell me, you think so too. Don't bother to continue reading as this is a pure ramble. I am warning you now so I won't be expecting you to give any shitty side comments as this post gets shitty (as it is supposed to).

It's past 2AM now and few hours ago I had the most regretful risk I took. Ever. And I tell you, sometimes not taking risks at all is a better option than the opposite. Yeah, contrary to those people who advise me to do the opposite as that is what life is about. But the heck, who are they to tell me what my life is about? I just followed their advice and few days from now I will be receiving probably the most dreadful criticisms I will have in this life. And those are no constructive ones for sure. Those damn judgmental people. I wouldn't expect anything less from them. Now I am hoping that the best physicist there is in this planet would have his eureka moment now and invent time machine, whatever it is that could make me turn back time.

Okay, that was a complete nonsense. I am digressing again. Let's get back to my shrinking nipple. Seriously, I think I get this because of this soy milk addiction.They said too much soy milk could even cause a cancer. But then, I think I think too much. In fact, my case is not too much. (So, you just read too much of too much. There's still more of it don't worry too much haha). I mean I only drink about 400 mL per day and I read even 2 liters is not too much for a day. Anyways, too much or not, still my left nipple is shrinking. What to do? what to do? I repeat, what to do, what to do with this shrinking nipple? Somebody heeeelp me!

On large french fries, I have been a fan of Mcdonad's buy one take one free large fries for the past few weeks. I know it's too much, okay. But who would not for just 50 bucks? And that could fill about one third of my required daily calorie intake. So if ever you visit me here in Taiwan, I buy you a........french fries!

Last digression, forgive me please. I just want to redeem myself and would try to make any sensible point here. I don't want to waste your time because you decided to continue on reading. And that's too much kindness of you when I already warned you not to. So, now I have proven that too much of saying too much something is really bad enough (and spice girls did not exist for nothing haha you sure know the connection). May it be too much soy milk, french fries, or just anything. Sigh... I hope that it's only about those small little things. But, it's not. I put too much trust in someone. Someone I barely know and I think I had given this person too much information about...too-complicated-to-tell, that I would be regretting I did. I hope I figured it wrong though. Still giving this person the benefit of the doubt and hope that everything will fall into the right place despite what happened.

Time to make amends. I am better than THAT. Crossing my fingers on this and still being positive.


Bad note: Just be sensitive. You don't know how depressed I am today!

Good note: My intuition is getting better.

The Rite -- Not All Right

Director: Mikael Håfström
Writers: Michael Petroni, Matt Baglio
Stars: Colin O'Donoghue, Anthony Hopkins and Ciarán Hinds

It's been since 2009, I think, when I last made a movie review and I remember, I promised myself that whenever I make reviews, the film must really be a good one (so that I would only post positive commentaries and so to avoid being a critic that I am not!).

Anyway, obviously this review is for the movie, The Rite. The movie is not good; but is not that bad neither. Oh yeah, forgive me for the usual blah! I just mentioned 'not good' and just lost my integrity for still making a review on this! Haha! Okay, let's just say, I am now possessed --minus the spinning head and pea-soup and high-angled projectile puke-- by the devil and it is him writing this. LOL!

So, speaking of the devil...Hafstrom perfectly places him (the devil) on the limelight to creep the hell out of all of us. Apparently though, it will always go without saying that this is like what any other exorcism film maker would do. But I challenge you to give this film a chance to attest itself that this isn't another The Exorcist, or a copy cat of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and you'll be surprised with the team's few attempts to have it more edgy over the other films of its genre.

Let me start with Haftrom's unique idea of preventing the movie from being conveyed as another cliche, by his attempt to put a different attack on Michael Kovak's (O'Donogheu) struggle on faith. The usual arguments, "Is there really a God?", "I can't do this and that because I lack faith (in God).", and whatnot, are replaced with, "How do I (O’Donoghue) take the devil away when I do not believe in him in the first place?", and..*insert any other statements on disbelief on devil's existence. This approach also poses a call for atheists to do a tweak on their premise, that they may yet prove themselves worthy not to be called fools :D Okay, forgive me (father) for I have digressed! Haha!

Another thing that's worth to mention, and I think the best asset of the movie, is its cinematography. Thanks to Ben Davis' admirable talent. Honestly and without exaggeration, I have never seen a movie yet that has as much creative camera works and perspective. The camera crawls in every scene with purpose --whether to scare you or to give you (false) expectations that in the next scene you'll be in dread, or screaming. Fast, precise and sharp shift of focus never compromises the scene's sense of art, especially during detail-defining shots. But since those are aided by technology, let alone Davis' creative playful mind shown through uniquely-angled shots from frame to frame, the movie can brag and will never be ashamed of showing off its ass if, or when, commended for its cinematography.

However, the brilliance ends there! As far as the acting is concerned, O’Donoghue is so-so. Emotions are flat and he is, in general, blank. He could have pulled-off a more effective mortician-turned-seminarist guy who eversince from his childhood has resentments to God after her mother died. But nah. Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins) even outshines O’Donoghue..he is very realistic, and his role as the key character to Kovak's turning point is well justfiied.

And before I forget to mention, the spooky echoing whispers of the demon that is supposed to frighten the audience becomes annoying. I don't know why, but that is what I felt for it. Nevertheless, the rest of the sound effects sure do a good job as far as the film's effectivity in giving goosebumps is concerned.

There. That's how I see The Rite. It's just right, but not all right. Still worth the watch though! I give it 8.5/10 :)

Ride On!

One of my colleagues in the company where I work for has a new pick-up ride! It was given to her by the company and I was like..WOAH! I wish I could have one too...Okay, that was a joke! That was not really my reaction ;)I was just quiet and quietly wishing that I could drive a pick-up too, and yes I am choosy and want this Chevrolet Silverado :D

Okay, enough for a wishful thinking now...and yeah I would digress 'coz someone from Texas just hit my blog and since I value my readers, here's to you: you prolly have a ride and still didn't know of Dallas auto repair...(okay now you know! :))) and you might someday need to fix your brake and yes, they do brake job there!

So there, click away buddy!

New Website. Own Domain. Finally!

I remember, I have been wanting to have my own domain ever since I learned that I can earn more moolah than my blogspot-tailed url can promise! (Whaaaat? LOL!) but I changed my mind and decided to put up a different site instead. Yeah, I let go of giving this blogspot his own identity -- but relax and wait my blogspot, we'll come to that point! :D

My new webspace is where I post all the photos I have taken with my pentax k-x, my new buddy! Yes, it is a photoblog and it is the first item I am slashing off in my to-accomplish list this 2011! Woot! I do not do own hosting though. Perhaps in few months' time, and I will yet consider this webhosting site. For now, I will just read their webhosting reviews, and i'll see which plan's the best.

I'll make a separate post for the link of my new site! :)

Repost: On Vacation

I was browsing my archives and found this post. I was just a student then who always craves for a break and wishes that college would be over -- and yeah it did happen! But sadly, I learned that because college is over does not mean I got plenty of breaks and vacations! In other words, be careful with what you wish for blah blah blah! :)))


Yeah. It's official. But, ugh, I can't seem to organize some plans for this much awaited break! Hmm, I'm thinking though -- if I can just let things happen spontaneously. No plans. No schedules. No schemes at all. Hmm, that, I hope, would be more exciting. Nah. I'm sure that that is a better idea. Yeah. Because, whatever happened to the time tables and working plans I made that I promise myself would have followed in the entire semester? Yeah right, it worked. And yeah, I don't mean that!

Well, now I'm dreaming. Ever heard of SeaSide? Uhm, that's just a place to pamper yourself. All right, that is being sketchy of me. So, uhm, that place is actually a first-class resort where the 4-star Myrtle Beach Hotel is located and where the white sandy beach is just footsteps away. Argh. I'm drooling to experience the luxurious Myrtle Beach vacation deals even for this short break that I have. Oh, that is a total drivel! But for the people who can go there for real, well, I tell you...staying at the SeaSide would be boring without their world-class amenities. Would you not enjoy their helicopter tour package? Or their so called enchanted sailing charters? Or the first-class spa service? or whatnot? Here,, click away!!!


Related to Previous Post!

I did mention from my previous post that college has been a great experience! Okay, I only mentioned that it was fun but the former was what I was trying to imply...

One of these great and fun experiences, I remember, was when I got to plant 13 trees! Fun, because I was with my friends when I did that. And great, I still need to explain? I'm sure you know why! :)

Because of that, I am now a certified Planter! Haha! An Outdoor Planter to be more specific! And because you like this post and you love plants, you are checking this Garden Planters' website! :D

Fond of Teaching!

When I opened my facebook a while ago, I saw a friend of mine posted on his wall that he misses college! We had graduated just last year and oh yeah, he already wants to go back to everyday of sleepless nights, every week of exams, and to feel again the agony of awaiting the results! Who would want that, raise your hand!!

*I'm raising my hand!!* Hahaha!

Yeah, without being sarcastic, I miss college too! All of the things I listed above were just a fraction of the whole college life! It's just too many to mention the rest parts that make up the majority -- the fun part! So people, help me overcome this fond-ness... who wants Chemistry Help? Physics Help? Or just any Homework Help? I might be of help! :)

Sports betting, anyone?

I have never done this before and never will I in the future! But I have known some who make their living thru sports betting. And they even get rich because of it.

Tempting, isn't it? Haha. So for those of you who like this kind of stuff, check this sports betting site! You can choose from basketball to baseball to soccer and even to sports for handicappers!

All right, I wish you luck! :)

I miss my sister...

It's our first time to celebrate new year without my sister. She is now 6-7 hours away from us and we are missing her...

Happy moments with her flash back everytime I see someone wearing hospital nurse uniform . We can still get in touch with her though. Thanks to the one who invented the internet!

Off topic, I am an engineering graduate but I think wearing medical uniforms is cool! And these are dickies medical uniforms, cool indeed huh! LOL.

Happy this new year!

I am very excited on what God has in store for me this 2011! For sure that's gonna be great! Who could go wrong with God's plans anyway?

And since it's new year, I have to be renewed as well! Haha. You know, trying new things, going out of my comfort zone, and all that old stuff that one is resolving during this first day of the year!
So, speaking of new things, I've decided, I will have my own domain now and will do own hosting for it! Cheers!

I have checked this webhosting site and they summarized some of the best deals on webhosting in the wide web! Click away folks and let's all have a happy new year! :D

Ang tagal na...

Hindi ko alam kung ano'ng pumasok sa utak ko bakit ako ngayon nagsusulat. Naalala ko, nagagawa ko lang magblog kapag may bago akong pagkakakitaan, o kapag nanalo ako sa isang contest, o minsan kapag masaya, pero madalas...kapag nalulungkot ako. Tulad ngayon...

(Ewan ko. Hindi ko alam kung matatapos ko 'to. Kapag nabasa mo 'to, nagawa kong i-publish, at congrats sa'ting dalawa! Ikaw na lang ata ang reader ko eh. See, iniwan na ako ng mga mambabasa ko, bukod kasi sa walang kwenta mga posts ko, trying hard pa ako magsulat.)

Ang dami dami dami dami nang nangyari sa'kin na dapat ginawan ko ng blog pero hindi ko nagawa....loser talaga! At 'eto ako ngayon, pinipilit ulit ang sarili na makapag-sulat. Ang totoo, hindi ko alam kung anong isusulat ko. Blanko talaga utak ko ngayon. Kaya medyo sabog itong post na ito. Hmm, sige hindi pala medyo, sabog talaga! Ayoko naman ikwento lahat ng nangyari sa'kin. Ang dami eh. Hindi ko na rin alam kung saan ako magsisimula. At isa pa, parang nawala na sila lahat sa isip ko.

Ayun, nalulungkot kasi ako eh. Lately kasi may mga pangyayari sa buhay ko na long term ang impact at hindi ko alam kung na-handle ko ba ito nang mabuti. Naging sunud-sunod iyong mga major decision making sa buhay ko. Ang hirap pala mamili, ano? Hindi dahil importante pareho iyong choices ko, kundi dahil hindi ako sanay pumili. Ngayon, may tanong sa isip ko kung tama ang mga desisyong ginawa ko. Minsan nagpapanggap lang ako na alam ko, pero ang totoo hindi talaga.

Paano at kelan ba talaga malalaman kung tama ang desisyon na ginawa mo?

On Travelling

Good Morning People!

Just got home from a vacation. It was kind of spontaneous trip this holy week because we haven't booked or reserved accommodations to any beach resorts. The trip was either in San Juan or Calatagan, Batangas. But since it was unplanned, fate brought us to Nasugbu. Haha!

So there, after 7 hours of travelling and searching of a beach resort that has a good accommodation and beautiful sceneries, we ended up at Kawayan Cove. But no regrets because the place was a hidden paradise in Batangas. Here (photo from

But I tell you, 7 hours of travel is no joke, especially when you don't know where you're heading to and worse when you travel on a rough road. And yes, we experienced that! But luck was still on our side because we haven't experienced being stranded in the middle of nowhere, where car repair shops are nowhere to be found. Imagine if we were to replace the head gasket of the our ride? Hmmm, maybe it would have taken us more than 12 hours for the travel alone. I hope we also have this Los Angeles Auto Repair in our country, which we can access online! The site also offers specific auto repair service such as for Ford Explorer, Audi A6, etc. But as for a longterm solution, those rough roads must be reconstructed to smooth, hassle-free roads. Hello, 2010 Batangas Offices' Election Candidates!

Repost: On Relieving Stress

I've been finding ways to relieve my stress brought about by my weekly deliverable on my major major subject. Yeah, you've read it right, major major! I have four major subjects this semester and this major major subject I am talking about is the most stressful one -- plant design that includes mass balance, energy balance, leaching, ball milling, mixing, crystallization, melting, etc, etc. Oh, yeah! It really is a nerve-cracking subject. If only I can fast-forward time and make this all over....sigh.

So, what do I do?I need a break. Some suggestions I got movie, time zone, videoke, trekking, or just sleep all day. I think the latter was the most appropriate for now since I haven't got enough sleep since last last last week, no exaggeration! Instead of doing that, however, I choose to spend my time in front of my laptop which includes doing some research yet again for this major major subject and of course, blogging!

Well, I just have to blog this one for my readers on the other side of the earth. If you're seeking an online site wherein you can buy Michael Buble Tickets, you're lucky for landing on my blogsite! :) Not only that, at that site, you can also buy Augusta National Golf Course Tickets for its many events (which can also be seen there). And there's more folks! They also extend their service to selling Air Canada Centre Tickets of different concerts, theater acts, and sports events there. So there! relieve your stress and enjoy!


I miss my REAL life. Gusto ko nang bumalik...

Where have I gone? T_T
