* Happy New Year [2010]

I just wanted to greet everyone a Happy New Year! This is my first entry to my blog this year and I said to myself to blog more this year.

I'm sure many thing have been learned and let's all face the new year positively. Best wishes to everyone and thank you for being part of my life in 2009.

* My Puppy [2 months after]

Our cute puppy started to be with us around last week of October. Before she was really quiet and shy but now she is always hyper and wanted to play. My puppy wanted to eat everytime and she eats everything even fruits, chocolates and vegetables. She's heavier and loves to run all over the house. It was really nice when we first heard her bark and she does that everytime especially with our visitors. My puppy is really sweet everytime me, my Mom or my brothers would arrived, she is already in the door waiting for us waving his tail. Even though it's hard to clean his poops, I'm still happy we had her in the house :)

* Christmas 2009

A lot of things had changed and happened for me this 2009 and I can say Christmas would be the last one. This was the first time that I spent Christmas eve at work. Shift is okay, work load is light, food is also offered free by the company for peeps who has shift during Christmas eve. I just looked at the brighter side that it's double pay and they sent us home early as well. My work is from 10pm - 7am and they sent us home around 5am.

* GE Money Fierce and Fabulous 3rd Annual Townhall

/ 12.20.2009 | Palms Country Club Filinvest, Alabang /


2nd time to do modelling

The original date for the company's Christmas party was supposed to be the 13th but it was moved to the 20th for some reason. This is my 2nd Christmas party with my company GE Money Servicing Philippines. I am excited and at the same time a little nervous because I was included again to represent our Portfolio (Chervon) for the Annual Fashion Walk Off, I can say last year was really not cool. The theme of the party is Fierce and Fabulous (Red) so everyone is wearing red. Party started a little bit late, us and the other models are seated in a different location. Speech was given by the Site Leader and Awards and raffles are also given.


Team Stu

Food was served and it was great, I can say I loved the Sushi and Salad. After eating the Boss from different Portfolio's danced and it was really nice, Dance contest also happened after that and finally the Fashion Walk Off, Carlos Agassi (model, actor and body builder) was one of the judge. Everything went well and all the designs are great, unfortunately we didn't win but that's okay. Party ended around 10pm and we took photos with friends and teamates during the party.

* FHM Philippines December 2009 issue with LJ Reyes

The first FHM event for December 2009 was supposed to be last December 11 but unfortunately cover girl LJ Reyes was sick during that day so the FHM event was moved to December 19 (Saturday) and will be held at the same location as always at teh Robinson Galeria Movie World. I was not feeling well during that day but I told myself this would be my last event for 2009 and I at the same time I wanted to meet LJ Reyes and have my December issue personaly signed by her. FHM meet and greet with LJ Reyes is scheduled from 6pm - 8pm and I arrived around 6pm and the line is not that long compared to the previous signings. The event was hosted by Sam YG of Magic 89.9 FM and the signing started around 6:30pm.



LJ Reyes (Lourna Jane Pujeda Reyes) by the was is a runner up for the second season of GMA 7's reality TV show Starstruck, she mentioned that her birthday is December so she thinks that maybe this month is the month that she should try posing for FHM, which is her first time as well to pose for a men's magazine.




my favorite photo inside the mag

LJ Reyes was really nice and friendly during her meet and greet and even asked for continuous support for next year. The event is very organized and it went well. Till the next FHM event for 2010.

It's my first time to attend a Rogue Magazine event and this was Rogue's 3rd annual Christmas party, my friends was able to attend last year's party and they said it was fun.

* UFC 107: Penn vs. Sanchez

/12.12.2009 FedExForum, Memphis, Tennessee/




History from Wikipedia.org

On October 21, it was announced that a previous matchup between welterweight contenders Thiago Alves and Paulo Thiago had been changed to Alves vs. Jon Fitch because Fitch's opponnt for UFC 106, Ricardo Almeida, suffered an injury. Paulo Thiago fought on UFC 106 on November 21 against UFC newcomer Jacob Volkmann and won the fight by Unanimous decision.

It was then announced on October 30, that Fitch would again be without an opponent as Alves was forced to withdraw because of a posterior cruciate ligament tear. It was later announced that Jon Fitch will face Mike Pierce at UFC 107.

Paul Buentello was scheduled to face Todd Duffee on the card, but an injury has forced Duffee to pull out. Buentello faced Stefan Struve on the card.
A middleweight bout between Alan Belcher and Wilson Gouveia was changed to a 195-pound catchweight bout after Gouveia asked for a 190-pound catchweight limit, but Belcher gave a counter-offer of 195 pounds.

Results

Wiman defeated Nelson via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).

* Catchweight bout (195 lbs): United States Alan Belcher vs. Brazil Wilson Gouveia

Belcher defeated Gouveia via TKO (strikes) at 3:03 of round 1. This bout aired on the PPV broadcast after the Mir vs. Kongo fight.

Main Card

* Heavyweight bout: United States Paul Buentello vs. Netherlands Stefan Struve

Struve defeated Buentello via majority decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-28).

* Lightweight Championship bout: United States B.J. Penn (c) vs. United States Diego Sanchez

Penn defeated Sanchez via TKO (cut) at 2:37 of round 5 to retain the UFC Lightweight Championship.

It was nice UFC event first is with the Florian and Guida fight next if seeing Jon Fitch back in the UFC then came the Mir fight, I can say I was amazed seeing how Mir gained mass and he looks big now. The fight was really fast and I'm looking forward for the Mir vs Lesnar 3 soon and finally the main event, Penn showed that he is the best at 155lbs outclassing his opponent Diego Sanchez. Penn showed his takedown defense and his striking ability hitting Sanchez hard and it all ends in Round 5 because of the cut Sanchez got.

* Mark and Gina Morfe's Wedding

/12/06/09 UST Church/

A good friend of mine ask me to be the Bestman for his wedding, it was my first time to do this and I feel excited at the same time nervous. I was on leave for December 5 (Saturday) then woke up early and went to the hotel where my friend is staying. I arrived around 7:30am and ate breakfast, we went up to the room and rest for a bit. After an hour we started to preapare and then the Photographers arrived and started taking photos of me and the groom. Around 12 noon we went to UST church and the wedding was held. I was the first one to walk to the shrine and I was so nervous but I'm happy everything went ok. The wedding is really nice but I wasn't able to take alot of photos because I am the bestman. Wedding ended around 2:30pm and then we took photos outside the church.

Click here for the photos that I took.

Reception is held at Magsaysay (in front of Diamond Hotel). I can say food is really nice, I was asked to do the toast for the couple and a little speech. My friends Alex and his wife and Robin was also there. Everything ended around 7pm and I went straight to work. A very tiring but happy day and I do congratulate my friend Mark and Gina, I know they really planned this and everything went out fine.

* Tayo and Taumbayan, Tayo ang Pagbabago



I was just informed by a friend that there was a concert that will be held at Makati Ave. so I said I would try to go there to kill time. I was walking around Ayala and I was able to see my friend She and she that Moonstar88 is also playing in the said concert so we walked together to Makati Avenue. It was not an ordinary concert it was a people's tribute to CNN Hero Efren Penaflorida and at the same time people who will attend are ask to bring gifts, food and donations that will be given to the victims of Maguindanao Massacre.



The event was hosted by Jim Paredes and Mikee Cojuangco, her wife Dodot was there and Senator Kiko Pangilinan. There's alot of people in yellow who are watching the event. I've heard that they walked from the Ninoy Aquino Statue in Ayala Avenue from 3:00PM and went to Makati Avenue, concert started 5:00PM. Some roads are closed that caused a little traffic but everything is ok when we arrived around 7:30pm. I was able to take photos of Moonstar88 as they perform and I was happy because this was my first time to attend an event something like this from a far it was like a rally but it was not. Hope everything would be solved and justice would prevail in the Maguindanao Massacre.

* Playboy Philippines December 2009 Event with Jacq Yu at Z-Bar Greenhills

My second stop for the day, I was invited by a friend who is current cover girl for the Playboy Philippines December issue non other than Jacq Yu to attend her event. I wasn't able to go the Playboy radio tour but I was able to attend the launching and press con of the December issue at Z-Bar in Greenhills. I arrived around 8pm at Z-Bar and Jacq was not yet there. Of course the Playboy bunnies are there and the playmates for the previous months. This would be my 5th Playboy event and I can say I do enjoy attending the Playboy launchings and parties.

Jacq Yu arrived around 9pm and of course photo ops in the Playboy wall. It was really cool that they are giving glow in the dark lolipops and Christmas candies in the registration area. Foods and drinks are served and also alcohol by "The Bar". I also saw some models who are I think applying to be a Playboy model. Phem Martinez the Playmate of the month is also present in the event and I can say she is really nice and pretty.



The Press con started and Playboy announced that they will also be having the Playmate of the Year contest just like with Playboy US where they will a chosen one between the 12 playmates for the entire year. After the introduction of the cover girl and the playmate is the question and answer for the press people. After the interviews is the signing of the copies of the latest issue. I'm happy because I was able to have my copy signed by both Jacq Yu and Phem Martinez. I was able to take photos of the inspiring Playboy models, the bunnies, the playmate and the cover girl. Saw some familiar faces and friends in the event as well.


with Jacq Yu (December 2009 Cover Girl)

I left early around 11pm because I still have work by 12mn, looking forward for more Playboy events like this and I wanted to say keep it up and congrats.

* Converse Sale December 3 - 6, 2009

A yearly sale by Converse held at SM Megatrade Hall from 40% - 70% off. Last year I was able to go inside and check the items on sale and I can say the price of the shoes especially the famous "Chucks" are really really low compared to the mall price.

Moonstar88

Just like last year Converse has a mini-concert event where shoppers can watch it. For this year Moonstar88 played again together with Paraluman for day 1 of the sale (Thursday). I arrived late and I wasn't able to watch Paraluman but I was able to watch and take photos of Moonstar88.

Now that most of us had our bonus, I can say this would be the best time to shop specially for Converse fanatics.

* Amazing Video by Black Eyed Peas

I just saw this video recently at youtube and damn it gaved me goosebumps. From one person dancing in front then everyone followed. I love this song so much. Enjoy the video :)

* Bigger Stronger Faster [movie]

Ever since the New Moon movie was shown almost every gym rat is talking about the steroids issue about Taylor (Jacob Black), a friend who also lift weights in the same gym where I life weights told me to watch this movie. SOme people in the gym as well are into steroids nowadays but not me.

I just recently watched this movie about Steroids, a documentary about the illegal substance or drug called steroids used by body builders, athletes and by other people for a different purpose. I was shocked and learned a lot after watching the movie. Stars like Hulk Hogan, Sly Stallone, Athletes and Arnold admitted they took steroids. This movie shows as well that some supplements are not "that" effective like Hydroxycut because the endorsers are also Roids users. This is a good documentary and also a life story of a family and how Steroids affected and changed their lives.

* Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving day is a holiday being celebrated every year in the U.S., Turkey and food is the first thing in mind if Thanksgiving is going to be mentioned. Anyways Thanksgiving is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in teh United States and Canada and from the name of holiday it's time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general.

I've worked for 3 call centers now and every Thanksgiving day means there is a very low call volume or incoming calls. In my recent company they announced that it's gonna be open OT for everyone so most are taking advantage of it. Since we are over staffed today is a very relaxing day most are just chatting or surfing the net. Here in the Philippines we don't celebrate Thanksgiving but mostly our Thanksgiving is Fiesta's and of course a lot of food is served.

* Allen Iverson Retires

Browsing yahoo and saw this Article A.I. aka The Answer quitting basketball. After reading the whole article it said that A.I. quits every team where he played and mostly about the same reason which is playing time. We all know that A.I. had this attitude that he always wanted the ball and score and he would be frustrated if he would be replaced and sits on the bench. We all know he is talented, with those amazing crossovers that even tricked Michael Jordan, those spectacular dunks and his speed, Imagine how a 6 feet guy dominating the NBA and winning the 2001 MVP award both season and all star game. Iverson has the heart and desired to win but his way is really different and he never learned especially about team work. He was traded to promising teams but nothing happened and now he is quitting the Memphis Grizzlies. I can say this would be sad, I'm an A.I. fan and I wanted him to have a championship, without him in the league is boring.

* Paramore in Manila in 2010


Paramore

Everyone is asking if it's true if rumors (since last year) about Paramore visiting the Philippines is true or not is still ongoing everywhere. I also saw a petition in facebook where you have to sign up for the band to come here. I can say I'm a Paramore fan and I like their songs. Early this morning I tuned in at Good Times with Mo because I saw on Mo Twister's twitter that they will be interviewing one of the band members on the show and they interviewed Taylor. The first question they ask is it's true about the band coming here and he said "Yes early 2010 by February or March" so we can it's already 95% sure and the other 5% goes to where would be the location. Taylor was really happy and overwhelmed when he heard that they are really famous here in the country. Got to start saving money for the tickets :)

* Plurk or Twitter?

A friend invited me before to sign up and try plurking, I asked her what the hell is plurk and what does it do? I was confused how to used it and how the "Karma" stuff means. After asking friends about it, I was able to understand it and I found plurking cool because I can also send a plurk thru my mobile phone anywhere and everywhere. Plurk is like posting your thoughts or what the plurker or user wanted to say, plurkers can also post a photo, a link or share a video and people or friends or fans can reply in your post. Fans meaning you will have an option to add the person who tried to add you if you wanted to him/her as a friend or a fan. Difference between adding a person as a fan or a friend is as a friend the plurk/post would appear in your timeline and a fan(s) plurk won't appear in your timeline. For me I do add a person as a fan if I really don't know him/her personally. Karma is like your rating, more post and replies means more karma. Too bad plurk is already blocked here at work so I can't plurk anymore, famous peeps has plurk accounts like famous author Paulo Cohelo.

* http://www.twitter.com and http://www.plurk.com

Let's go to twitter, I first saw it on a techy tv show at net 25 and saw that many is really into it including personalities like Oprah and even US President Obama. So I was curious and signed up and followed the celebrities (local and foreign), Basketball Players and my friends. It was really cool that it was really them posting there thoughts and what they do and what they are doing. I usually used twitter when I'm at work because it is not block b the IT team, I can still connect with friends who are active with twitter.

I like both twitter and plurk because they connect me to my friends, add me up at plurk http://www.plurk.com/reachard and twitter http://twitter.com/richardesguerra

* UFC 106: Ortiz and Griffin 2

/ 11.21.2009 Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, NV /

Ortiz vs Griffin 2

The original line up for UFC 106 was a fight between UFC Hall of Famer Mark COleman and Tito Ortiz but it was changed because Coleman had a knee injury so UFC made Forest Griffin to replace Mark Coleman to fight Ortiz.

This was the second fight between Ortiz and Griffin, 1st fight was during UFC 59 where Ortiz won via unanimous decision. The difference between the first and second fight was Griffin was grounded and pounded on the first fight and Forest was more aggresive this fight. I can say that Forest really changed alot and he improved with his takedown defense and kicks. Ortiz really looked slow this time and I can say he looks old. This was Ortiz comeback and he tied Chuck Liddell for being in the Octagon.

* Did Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) used steroids or not?

After seeing the trailer and watching the movie Twilight: New Moon, me and my friends who saw the movie are thinking if Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) is all natural or if he is using Steroids.

Last year the movie Twilight was shown and everyone saw how Taylor Lautner looked at that movie, he looks like a kid during that time and he was 16 that time after a year (now he's 17) he really looks big and different with his muscled body. Since me and some friends are working out in the gym for more than a year now, we tried to search for his workout, diet, supplements used or an interview and here what we found


Lautner trained for nine months before the movie and he is also a Black Belter in Karate so it helped him alot especially with his core (abs). Lautner doesn't give away many details about his workout during interviews. He says "I ate a lot of food and worked out".

But according to the site if ever Lautner didn't make it (getting a muscled body that would fit Jacob Black's description in the book) before the filming of the movie, he will be cut and be replaced for the role of Jacob Black. Jacob Black is one of the major characters in the movie and in the Twilight series. What we thought is he needed to make a choice which is "to be cut? or to get the role?". At the same time it's his career especially that everyone is into Twilight and awaits for the sequel of the first movie. People, Models and athletes won't admit it if they are using the illegal drug or steroids because it's prohibited but they have no choice, there's alot who is proven and is positive for using the illegal drug whom at first denying that they are using it. Well anyways it's up to the people to judge and decide :)

But in any case I can say I like Twilight and I wanted to have a body like Taylor has LOL :)

* Fake Nike Pacman Wind Runner Jackets

Original Nike Pacman Wind Runner Jacket


Fake Nike Pacman Wind Runner Jacket


*see the difference

A friend is asking if I could still find the Nike Pacman Wind Runner Flag jacket that I just bought from a friend. Since it's already phased out in the Nike stores I have tried to search the net if I can still find some stocks. I searched ebay and saw that there are few sellers selling the item for an expensive price and then I saw this seller selling a fake one for a lower price around 2.3k (pesos). Everything is the same except for the logo at the back except for a gold star for the original item you would see a MP logo above the team pacquiao at the back of the jacket. Another thing is the white part on the bottom part of the jacket and on the wrist part in both hands. Beware of fake items online :)

* Twilight: New Moon

/ 11.20.2009 Alabang Town Center /

Twilight: New Moon

It's was Movie Night Friday's for GE Money Servicing Philippines employees at Alabang Town Center and the film is the much awaited sequel for Twilight. This time the movie is not for everyone, employees will only be given a ticket if they got an EE performance (Exceeding Expectations) last October and too bad I wasn't able to meet that rating. I was happy that a wavemate (Ces) of mine gaved me an extra ticket of her and I can say I was happy because of course it's free. After work I skipped my workout at the gym and went straight home. I arrived at ATC around 5:00pm and line is very long for the regular cinemas especially for Twilight. One of the cinemas was rented by the company for us employees and they also gaved everyone a free drink and popcorn.

From the book by Stephenie Meyer the movie for is me nice and the cast of the movie are still the same and some additions of new characters like the Wolves and the other Vampires. I liked it compare than the first movie adoptation and with the book itself, but of course the book would provide the complete details. For me the book was kinda boring in the four books of the Twilight Series but this movie really changed it. Most the scenes in the movie is what I visualize when I am reading the book. I also like the transformation scenes of the werewolves and it's cool. Another thing that I can say is that this movie inspired me to go to the gym more often haha because of the shirtless Wolf boys (Jacob and the others). I do recommend the movie but it's kinda cheesy haha too many girls and gays (haha) in the cinema are screaming during the cheesy moments and everytime Jacob Black is showing his buffed and muscled body.

* Nike Pacman Wind Runner Jacket

Manny Pacquiao



My Nike Pacman Wind Runner Jacket



Front



Back
Since the I saw the Nike Pacman Wind Runner jacket during the Dela Hoya fight I really wanted to have one but I had a hard time finding one and now after 3 fights (Dela Hoya, Hatton and Cotto) I was able to find and get one for myself. I was happy because I ordered the jacket the day before his fight against Cotto at the same time Pacman won so I'm sure the Pacman items will be in demand again. Got an XL and it fits nice and I can say I liked it. Hope they could release the latest Pacman jacket here in the Philippines soon.
