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.

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.

It's time again for one of the biggest music event in the country which is MYX MO, an annual event where the best pinoy music artist from all genre rock, pop, dance, mellow, hip-hop and more would perform in one stage in one day. The event was held in the SM Mall of Asia Grounds just like last year.
This year's theme was Bangon, Republic of MYX. Giving the message to the people here in the country to unite and be positive despite of the tragedies and calamities that occured in the past months.
It was sad that Kamikazee and Urbandub was not there but I can say the event is successful and everyone is happy.

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.

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
* source: (http://www.squidoo.com/taylor-lautner-workout)
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 :)

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 :)

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.

/ 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.
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.
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.
Light Heavyweight bout: Alexander Gustafsson vs. Jared Hamman Gustafsson defeated Hamman via KO (punches) at 0:41 of round 1. This bout, although preliminary, was aired on the live broadcast and Spike TV broadcast following the Bisping vs. Kang fight.
Lightweight bout: Paul Kelly vs. Dennis Siver Siver defeated Kelly via TKO (strikes) at 2:53 of round 2. Welterweight bout: Nick Osipczak vs. Matthew Riddle Osipczak defeated Riddle via TKO (punches) at 3:53 of round 3.
Lightweight bout: Terry Etim vs. Shannon Gugerty Etim defeated Gugerty via submission (guillotine choke) at 1:24 of round 2.
Welterweight bout: Paul Taylor vs. John Hathaway Hathaway defeated Taylor via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26).
Lightweight bout: Ross Pearson vs. Aaron Riley Pearson defeated Riley via TKO (doctor stoppage) at 4:34 of Round 2.
Welterweight bout: James Wilks vs. Matt Brown Brown defeated Wilks via TKO (punches) at 2:26 of Round 3.
Middleweight Bout: Michael Bisping vs. Denis Kang Bisping defeated Kang via TKO (punches) at 4:24 of the Round 2.
Welterweight bout: Mike Swick vs. Dan Hardy Hardy defeated Swick via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).
Light Heavyweight bout: Randy Couture vs. Brandon Vera Couture defeated Vera via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

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
Heavyweight bout: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers
Emelianenko defeated Rogers via TKO (Punches) at 1:48 of round 2.
Shields defeated Miller via Unanimous Decision (49-46, 49-46, 48-47) to become the new Strikeforce Middleweight Champion.
Mousasi defeated Sokoudjou via TKO (Punches) at 3:43 of round 2.
Werdum defeated Silva via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
For today I only have two stickers and will try my best to get 15 more stickers before the year ends.
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.

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.

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.

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 ebay.ph 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 http://www.niketalk.com 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 :)
