Manila Auto Salon is a yearly event usually held at SMX Convention Center near SM Mall of Asia, this is one of the major car show event in the country. It's a 4 day event starting Thursday and ends Sunday, this year the entrance fee is 60 pesos for adults, 30 for kids and 45 for Elders (I guess same as last year). The event is full of modified cars and PGA cars that we won't see in the streets here in the Philippines like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and more. Car Accesories and anything about car like insurance and more. This event is for car enthusiast, Photographers, car show fanatics, bloggers and even cosplayers this year. I was able to attend day 4 because I have work during the first three day of the said event.

Celebrities and models can be seen in this kind of events and for this year Rabah Al Hussaini, Japeth Aguilar and Eric Salamat of the Ateneo Blue Eagles is present in the said event. Jahziel Manabat and Abby Poblador from Playboy Philippines is also there.

I'm also happy to see friends (photographers, bloggers, models and friends) in the MAS 2009 event. Day 4 was really crowded because it's the last day and also because of the awardings. The 60 bucks I payed is really worth it and I can say I enjoyed the event.

* Iverson back to Philadelphia?

Rumors are spread that the Philadelphia 76ers is thinking of reinstating their former All Star Guard Allen Iverson back to Philadelphia where he played his first 10 season in the NBA. Another reason is because 76ers point guard Lou Williams who will be out for eight weeks because of a jaw surgery.

* 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.

me with Taken by Cars

The event was really crazy and thanks to Maysh and the rest of the Moonstar88 band for giving us backstage access. We are able to meet alot of music artist and watch the bands as they play. Difference between last year is we are able to go to the stage to take photos but this time it is not allowed. Like last year it was raining as well but the fun didn't stop and the concert continues until 3am. Almost 50+ artist played Mayonnaise, Sandwich, Up Dharma Down, Imago, Paramita, Pedicab, Kjwan, Greyhounds, Kyla, Mark Bautista, Christian Bautista, Moonstar88, Side A, Miguel Escueta, The Ambassadors, Duster, Parokya ni Edgar, Pop Girls, Gloc 9, Hi-C, 6CycleMind, Franco, Itchyworms, Letter Day Story, Callalily, Roots Of Nature,Silent Sanctuary, Sponge Cola, Kenyo, Hilera, Hale, Archipelago, Pupil, Slapshock, Sugarfree, Rico Blanco, Sino Sikat, Taken by Cars, Rivermaya, Princess, Paraluman and more.

* 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.

* Date is set for Paramore in Manila

* Paramore in Manila in 2010


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.

* and

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 and twitter

* 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.


Preliminary Card (Non-televised)

Lightweight bout: George Sotiropoulos vs. Jason Dent Sotiropoulos defeated Dent via submission (armbar) at 4:36 of round 2. This bout aired on the Spike TV broadcast and pay-per-view broadcast following the Griffin vs. Ortiz fight.

Welterweight bout: Brock Larson vs. Brian Foster Foster defeated Larson via TKO (strikes) at 3:25 of round 2. This bout aired on the Spike TV Broadcast.

Preliminary Card (Spike TV)

Middleweight bout: Kendall Grove vs. Jake Rosholt Grove defeated Rosholt via submission (triangle choke) at 3:59 of round 1. This bout aired on the pay-per-view broadcast after the Thiago-Volkmann bout.

* 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


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.

* UNO Magazine Man Up Fashion Show

/ 11.16.2009 NBC Tent /

It's been a while since UNO Magazine had a major event and this time they will be having a fashion event called Man Up. The event was held at NBC Tent, The Fort in Taguig. Me and my friends arrived around 8:30pm and the fashion event just started. I was really happy and lucky to have a VIP pas courtesy of our friend from UNO Sha-Shi (thanks). We are able to seat in front of the runway together with some celebrities and personalities like Iza Calzado, Joey Mead, VJ Bianca Roque, Carla Humphrey and more. I was able to take photos of the fashion event where famous models walked in the runway including last month's UNO cover girl Ornussa Cadness. Isabel Roces, Mika Lagdameo, Bubbles Paraiso, Bianca Valerio also walked in the runway together with the other models. Famous designers also participated including Trisha Gosingtian and more.

After the party me and my friends also got some pass for the after party at Members Only Bar where the party continues, together with the UNO staff, models and the celebrities. Music is great, alcohol is flowing and everyone is happy. I can say this UNO event is really nice but not as big as the Hottest UNO Girls event during the previous years but two thumbs up for UNO and we are looking forward for more classy issues and events.

* Firepower: Pacquiao vs Cotto

Pacquiao victorious against Cotto

/ 11/14/2009 MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada /

Another Pacquiao fight and it only means 0% crime rate here in the Philippines, no traffic and everyone is on standby in the tube, net and on the radio for what they say is the biggest fight for the Filipino Pride Manny Pacquiao against Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto for the WBO Welterweight Title. I decided to go home right away after my work and a friend has invited me to watch because they have payperview at home. The main bout started a little bit late this time around 12 noon.

Pacquiao showed that he is still the pound for pound king in boxing when he won and became a 7 time world champion in 7 different weight divisions in boxing after defeating Miguel Cotto with a TKO in the 12th round. The Puerto Rican was knocked down twice during the bout before the referee stopped the fight in the last round. Cotto's face was full of blood just like what happened with his first loss againts Margarito. Eventhough Pacquiao is smaller and many says that Cotto is stronger, Pacquiao showed why he is the best and showed his speed and accuracy in the fight. Cotto had a hard time hitting him and catching up with Pacquiao.

With Pacquiao's victory all of the Filipinos are happy and proud with him and now he is a legend in the sport. Now everyone is looking for the superbout or the real dream match between Pacquiao and Mayweather. To know who is really the real and undisputed Pound for Pound King in the boxing ring.

* UFC 105: Vera vs. Couture

/ 11/14/2009 Manchester Evening News Arena /

The main event originally for UFC 105 was a bout between BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez for the Lightweight Title but it was moved and there is no definite schedule yet for the bout. This event was much awaited especially here in the Philippines because of the main bout between Fiipino Pride Brandon Vera against the legendary Randy Couture. It was another disappointing results and for me I think Vera won. Another questionable decision from the judges just like the result with the previous UFC event against Shogun and Machida.


Preliminary Card

Lightweight bout: Andre Winner vs. Rolando Delgado Winner defeated Delgado via KO (punch) at 3:22 of round 1. This bout, although preliminary, was aired on the live broadcast and Spike TV broadcast following the Wilks vs. Brown fight.

* Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers


Another waited MMA event again because of Fedor and this time he will be fighting an undefeated fighter Brett Rogers (10 - 0 and 9 by KO's). It was a g ood match and Rogers is really big 6'4 and Fedor is only 5'11 1/2. Roger's 1st jab/punch gaved Fedor a bad cut in his nose and blood is flowing continiously throughout the fight. This is the only fight of Fedor that he was pounded in the ground but still Fedor showed his strength and how elusive he was. Rogers is having a hard time wtih Fedor and Fedor gaved him a lot of strong punches and the last one KO'd Rogers in the second round. Fedor once again proved that he is the best in the Heavyweight division of the sport.

The post fight interview in the ring really shows that Rogers is really upset and really wanted a rematch and hope there would be another one in the future and for Fedor he is really happy for his win.Main card

* Starbucks Planner for 2010

It's November again and for 2 years now, it's time to buy coffee and collect stickers at Starbucks Coffee to get their famous planner. For this time it should be 17 stickers (8 for any drinks and 9 for the seasonal drinks) to get a Starbucks planner. For 2007 I was able to get 2 planners. One is for me and one was given by me to my ex girlfriend because during that time they have a promo where if you would purchase coffee from 2pm - 5pm and 8pm - 11pm you can get a plus 1 sticker so one drink is equivalent for two stickers but last year they didn't have a promo like that.

For today I only have two stickers and will try my best to get 15 more stickers before the year ends.

* Kate Torralba's Fashion Event at Rockwell Tent


Kate Torralba

It was my off and I was looking for a place or an event to attend, since I can't find any I checked out for my favorite band's gig (Up Dharma Down) and I saw that they will be playing at Kate Torralba's Fashion Event at Rockwell Tent, I was able to asked bassist Paul Yap if the event is open or by invitation and they don't know if it is. My friend who has a friend who works at Rockwell confirmed that it's by invitation only and I also sent Kate Torralba a message at Twitter and Facebook to ask and she confirmed that it's only by invitation.

me and Maxene Magalona

Up Dharma Down (Paul Yap no in the photo)

Eventhough I am not sure if I could go inside the event I still went to Rockwell and saw a friend their and I was able to go inside. Good thing I was in a semi formal attire because most of the people who attended that event are in formal attire. Most are models and celebrities (Tim Yap, Tessa Prieto, Joey Mead, Up Dharma Down, Veronica of Kitty Girls, The Magalona Family and more) It's a fashion show where the models walked with the designs of Kate Torralba. Absolut Vodka and Wine are flowing and also the food is great. I was able to take a few photos of the event and meet Kate Torralba herself who also performed later that night.

* FHM Philippines November 2009 issue with Jennelyn Mercado

FHM November 2009 Issue

It's a new month and of course it's what comes into my mind is the monthly FHM event. My friend told me that the FHM event with cover girl Jennelyn Mercado will be held in the first Thursday of the month. Good thing I already got a copy when it was released in the mall. With my review bout the magazines I can say I liked it specially the features, quality of the photos, more babes and more photos for the cover girl. For 125 bucks I can say that it's worth it.

Cover Girl Jennelyn Mercado and me

Me and my friend Mark went to Galeria together and meet our other friends in the signing. The event started around 5:30pm and I'm the 2nd in the line (lol), this is the second time for me to meet Jennelyn Mercado and I can say she still looks pretty as she was before. What most of us noticed about the signing is she's like hmmmm not in the mood and she doesn't smile and accomodates compare to her previous signing January last year. Anyways I am happy my magazine is signed and it's another addition to my signed magazine collection.

* New Puppy

My brother told me that my Aunt will give us one puppy and I was really excited because it's been years since me had a puppy or a dog in the house. Yesterday my Mom arrived from my Tita's house and together with her is our cute little puppy, she still doesn't have a name till now (honestly) and the puppy is really really shy, quiet and like me a sleepy head. It was funny because she sleeps then wake up then eat then sleep again. Now I have another reason of staying at home and just playing and taking care of our new puppy.

* Nike Talk Forums

Before buying my Nike Hyperize AP Shoes, I tried to search the web for informations about the shoe (reviews and feedbacks) and I was able to see this forum named Nike Talk. After buying my new basketball shoes at I have learned that the seller of the shoes that I boguht was also a member of the Nike Talk forums. He told me that most of the peeps in the forums are shoe/sneaker collectors and I can get reviews and help especially about shoes in the said forum. So I went to and registered I thought I could post and join the forums right away but I was wrong, I needed to send an introduction or an "application" to the admins and they would decide if you will be approved or not. I can say I do collect and buy alot of stuff (cards, comics, signed items, magazines, jersey, toys, etc) and recently I'm interested in collecting basketball shoes so that is one of the major reason why I wanted to join niketalk casue I know this forums would help me alot.

After 3 weeks I received an email and I was declined so I replied back and ask the admi if they could reconsider my application for the forums and after 24 hours I got another email sayign I was approved and I can say I am happy :)
