It was ester sunday night....this year....hmmmm...after dinner... ;))
The persons left in our house were hmmmm....me, mama and papa( haha..ng abut xa...nyaahaha!)...the two boys...my two brothers made their way to the church (seventh-day adventist) early in the afternoon for a...hmmm...seminar?..hmm..perhaps, some kind of a lecture...maybe they were just bored inside the house so that's why they decided to go there...haha...Well, they've been active in the church lately so I think they're now getting used to it..a good thing, right?..hehe!...we dont celebrate the easter sunday like the way others do...although we had planned to go to the beach since we were "again" somehow complete...so sad that my sister is so far from us...well...hehe...somehow, I know she's enjoying her life now...although I know she tends to feel bad or miserable sometimes....haaaayz....
It was after dinner...hmmm...as I have said...haahahah....as I was washing the plates..I began to hear my mom singing gospel songs...hmmm...worship time I thought....haaayz...I was really not in the mood for that..since my two brothers were not around....I kind of felt irritated..."a devils' tickle"...ahahaha!...but I controlled myself...kicking out the devil lurking inside of me and dedicated that moment to our beloved God....(anyway, the whole time should really be celebrated for Jesus' resurrection, right?..hehe) It was then that I realized....that it was just the three of us singing songs together....I felt good...knowing the fact that there was mama and papa...and just me as their child....It was really something...I never had the chance to have a quality time with just the two of them...I felt really protected...I was teary-eyed embracing the moment that I am with them ...as if nothing bad happened in our family...as if there's no tomorrow...as if nothing bad is going to happen...(in fact...I was planning to talk to them sincerely....just the three of us..about things that we really should be dealing with...I wanted to cry...I wanted to embrace them and tell them how much I loved them and why things should be happening...why such awful things happened...all that and more...I wanted to confide to them all the bad things and of course the good ones that are happening in my life....but I just didnt have the courage...I thought that somehow..we were better off that way...)...
haaayz...when it comes to family issues...I am just so vulnerable that I always tend to breakdown and cry...I always end up weak...I just cant find the courage to tell my family how important they are to me....how I just cant go on without them...how miserable would I become not having them to spend my life with...I am not really so showy of my feelings to them..especially to my mom...we are not open as "friends"...maybe..as mother and daughter alone...huhu...maybe because of those past issues or...hmmm...you know...basta ah..that's just hindering me from doing the things that I know I should do...and I wanted to do too..somehow...haayz....I am still drowned and lost....and I dont know why....but I know that somehow...I tend to become insensitive and numb that I always end up hurting them...bohoo!...tsktskstsk.. :(
and that time...when we were singing songs together...sharing bible verses and many more...I felt there was nothing so great in life than have a quality time spent with your family....I just cant think of something else...just that moment...and the three of us...haha!..and when we were about to have our closing prayer....the two boys arrived..just in time!...haha!...so we really did pray together and end the night up with a satisfying smile...hehe!

Now let me share to you some of those eye-catching creations that the world consider as some of the top-most architectural man-made facilities...nyahahah...wala na gd ah...toinks... ^_^
From the tall tower in Dubai to a contemporary art museum on New York's Lower East Side, noteworthy architecture is springing up around the globe. Conde Nast Traveler's April issue picks seven designs as the "New seven wonders of the architecture world".
What makes this special?...hmmm... The building has an irregular roof, all curves and angles, like a bite taken out of a cloud. Wohoo!...Not so kind of weird for an exhibit hall in a museum, I guess. But sure it does look peculiar.. ^_^
-Burj Dubai, is a skyscraper under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is the tallest man-made structure on Earth. Construction began on September 21, 2004, and it is expected to be completed and ready for occupation in September 2009. As of 12 May 2008, Burj Dubai has reached a height of 636 m (2,087 ft), with more than 160 completed floors. The final height is a secret (due to its competitors who are trying to plan and propose similar structures of some sort) but its developer, Emaar Properties, has previously said it will stop somewhere above 2,275 feet and will exceed 160 floors.
Burj Dubai's final milestone will be to surpass the Warsaw radio mast in Konstantynów near Gąbin, Poland (which stood at 646.4 m (2,121 ft) until it collapsed in 1991) to become the world's tallest structure of any type ever built. Burj Dubai has been designed to be the centerpiece of a large-scale, mixed-use development that will include 30,000 homes, nine hotels such as the Burj Dubai Lake Hotel & Serviced Apartments, 0.03 km² (0.01 sq mi) of parkland, at least 19 residential towers, the Dubai Mall, and the 0.12 km² (0.05 sq mi) man-made Burj Dubai Lake. The silvery glass-sheathed concrete building will give the title of Earth's tallest free-standing structure to the Middle East — a title not held by the region since 1311 AD when Lincoln Cathedral in England surpassed the height of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which had held the title for almost four millennia.
Just look at how the hunger for competition could blow up the universe with these colossal architectures! Wont these make the planet so overweight? haha..Maybe it's now starting to fall down since it's not only these architectures are growing up in numbers...Imagine earth to be this over populated and over...of everything...bohooo...so scared to think of what's gonna happen...
-'s , s the new stadium in Wembley, located in the London Borough of Brent in London, England. It is owned by The Football Association (FA) via its subsidiary Wembley National Stadium Limited, and its primary use is for home games of the England national football team, and the main English domestic football finals. It is also used for pop concerts and other sporting events. The stadium seats 90,000 with no obstructed sight lines. A massive 436-foot-tall, 1,000-foot-long single arch braces the retractable roof. The stadium will be a centerpiece of the .
- The New Museum of Contemporary Art, designed to resemble an
off-kilter stack of silvery rectangles, located on the Bowery on 's once-seedy, now-trendy Lower East Side.
In December 2007, the New Museum opened the doors to its new location on 235 Bowery, at Prince Street. This new facility, designed by the Tokyo-based firm Sejima + Nishizawa/SANAA and the New York-based firm Gensler, has greatly expanded the Museum’s exhibitions and space.
The Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard, with its elegant glass canopy, was designed by the world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners. It is a signature element of the renovated National Historic Landmark building that houses the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. The enclosed courtyard provides a distinctive, contemporary accent to the museums' Greek Revival building.
-Red Ribbon, Tanghe River Park, in , about 180 miles east of , a steel bench that runs a third of a
mile through a riverbank garden and ecological oasis.
According to the architects, the 20-hectare (50-acre) park is sited on "a river corridor at the outskirts of the fast developing city of Qinhuangdao, with lush vegetation and diverse species but occupied by deserted irrigation structures and garbage dumps." Their aim of preserving the natural habitats along the river while inserting recreational and educational uses was accomplished via the red ribbon and its adjacent boardwalk.
-The Crystal, a controversial new entryway and exhibit space at , whose sharp, even jagged angles have not been universally loved by the locals. It was designed by Daniel Libeskind.The Royal Ontario Museum, commonly known as the ROM, is a major museum for world culture and natural history in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The ROM is the fifth largest museum in North America, containing more than six million items and over 40 galleries. It is also the largest museum in Canada. It has notable collections of dinosaurs, Near Eastern and African art, East Asian art, European history, and Canadian history.
The Libeskind design, selected from among 50 entrants in an international competition, saw the award winning Terrace Galleries torn down and replaced with a Deconstructivist crystalline-form clad in 25 percent glass and 75 percent aluminium. The building is named after Michael Lee-Chin, who donated $30 million towards its construction. It houses the new main entrance to the museum, a gift shop, a restaurant (C5 Restaurant and Lounge), a cafeteria (Food Studio), seven additional galleries and Canada's largest temporary exhibition hall in the lower level.
The overall aim of the Crystal is to provide openness and accessibility. It seeks to blur the lines between the public area of the street and the more private area of the museum. The goal is to act as an open threshold where people as well as artifacts animate the spaces. The main lobby is a three-story high atrium, named the Hyacinth Gloria Chen Crystal Court. The lobby is overlooked by balconies and flanked by the J.P. Driscoll Family Stair of Wonders and the Spirit House, an interstitial space formed by the intersection of the east and west crystals, intended as a space of emotional and physical diversion.
But not just these....I also happened to watch the National Geographic Channel and they were able to present some of the most jaw-dropping architectures ever built. Those buildings may have not surpassed the heights of the ones included in the seven wonders but I am sure that they would also leave you breathless. I hope you enjoyed exploring this awesome piece of information that I was able to share to you.. 'Till then.. ;)

Enwei, just because im oh so sleepy and has nothing worthwhile in mind to do (although I know there are lots of things that needs to get done...ssshhh..me bad..lol!)...im doing this...lol!...blogging is my pastime?...hmmm...not really...maybe just to divert my attention from streaming?!!...lol!....and sleeping I guess...haha!...I'm just getting nowhere everytime my "lazy-bone syndrome" attacks me...lol!
Oh well, I dont know what to post in this so-called blog...I am not even fond of maintaining one (adding widgets, elements..things like that...sin-o dra maluluy-on mag bulig sakun kay-u sang blog mn?...dw wala gd ko patience sa mga mu na nga bagay eh..lol!)...this is just one of the petty things to where I can caught myself expressing myself (most of the time...not my true "self"?..lol...im just lost, that is...haha)
There was this...hmmmm...I dont know what that was being called at...a graphics from myspace?..an avatar?..I dont know the exact thing or to what it does refer specifically but it really had caught my attention and even made me burst out laughing....I saw it from "Glitter-Graphics" as one of my ofismates "introduced" me to "it"...lol!...I was able to visit that particluar site a few times already to copy-paste some cute, funny and stupid images' codes as comments to frendster...lol!...but was never able to noticed that one realistic and peculiar "avatar" as it was labelled...haha!...How come I missed it?...I should have seen it...it was part or one of my interests!...lol...just kidding.... ;)
And so, here it goes...."The Sad Life of A Dick"....lol!...Maybe most of you had already seen this....it doesnt matter anyway...I just have nothing to do and I find this funny so just let me be...haha!
It aint easy being a dick...
I got a head I cant think with...
An eye I cant see out of...
I have to hang around with two nuts all the time...
My closest neighbor is a real asshole...
My bestfriend is a pussy...
And everytime I get excited, I throw up!
And worst of all...
My owner beats me!!!!
This is just so hilarious!...See what I'm talking about?..lol! I think this has given so much realization to those "concerned citizens"...rotfl!

Last time when I decided to watch a televison, I came across with the "Oprah" show...Indeed, the show is really a helpful one..full of information on so many different aspects of life...and Oprah is really something!..Oh, come on! admit it.....everybody loves Oprah, right?..well, if not..atleast for the most...she's actually a blessing...whatever... ;)
I am not an avid fan of Oprah...yet, when i tend to watch some of the episodes from her show...I just can say that it is really something worthwhile to put your time into it...I can still remember the episode to where "Al Gore" discussed some things concerning the so-called "Global Warming"...that had just given me shivers and chills...The facts and information presented were quite enough for the people to be aware of what the hell's really going on with our atmosphere due to all the stupid things that we do...and if we still dont do anything to give some remedy into it...well, we better look for another place (earth) to live in... ;)
But what I am going to share to you this time is a movie that has been promoted in the show. It really caught my interests since the movie is quite realistic yet enveloped with some special effects that are just enough to arouse some creativity and realization. And to think, the movie is a musical of some sort!...Yes, and not just some petty or make-believe musical movie...but a movie that runs through all of the songs..oh, not all...hmm...34 songs I think...34 songs from the famous band - "The Beatles"!
The movie was directed by Julie Taymor..the famous theatrical director of some marvelous works including the "The Lion King".
Julie's film Across the Universe follows the lives of a group of young people living during the turbulent 1960s…told through the lyrics of 34 Beatles songs. Each song underpins the characters' emotional journeys and illustrates the political upheaval of that era. Just like the Beatles did in their music, the movie addresses topics ranging from young love to anti-war protest to civil rights to psychedelic drugs.
While the stories of Jude, Lucy, Sadie and JoJo are told in musical interludes, Julie packs those moments with dazzling special effects, animation and puppetry. The combination of songs and visuals—and famous cameos from musicians and actors like Salma Hayek and Bono—add up to a stroke of genius unlike anything you've ever seen.
After nearly everything in the film was complete, Julie faced her ultimate test…screening Across the Universe for ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.
"It was the most terrifying moment," she says. "I just felt that ultimately, that was it. I got to do the movie and sit with him and have him see it. And he sat next to me and when 'All My Loving' started, he sang under his breath. That was it!"
What did he think? "At the end I did the classic thing. I said, 'Was there anything you didn't like?' He said, 'What's not to like?' And it was just those words."
Well, I am not expecting that everybody would like this film...but really..this is a must-see movie...more worthy to watch than those all-time cruel or rude and full of fantasy movies...maybe...for a change that is...haha!...Actually...this movie was released last year (2007)...basta ah...bay-e lng ko bala... : ))

I think most of you agrees with me, right?....Those "First times" in our lives are what we usually treasure....what we tend to reminisce although some were forgotten and replaced with some of the more enjoyable and memorable ones...still....those that happened firsts...are just what we may call as one of the greatest experiences in our lives... ;)...first cry, first burp...first smile...first glimpse of the world..first set of teeth...first "words"...first walks,...our first -- birthdays, gifts, friends, toys, school, love, heartaches, trips..all that and more...wohoo!...lol

I just smiled and told her that im fine...Im not getting any job because im not doing anything to actually get one...then, there goes the splurged of courage and determination....i made up my mind and decided to where that I really should be working and want to work with...some of my friends were already working at eversun so they recommended that i go apply..I was quite hesitant at first...I thought I cant make it..that Im not that good enough to be qualified in such company...but a quote just inspired me...and so...i was on it...and I actually got what I wanted...I just kept myself focus on the goal and believed in myself that I can actually get what I want...and poof!..it became coco crunch...weee...lol!...thanks to Ms. Claire who became God's instrument in giving me such blessing....and to my client Mr. Terry B. who just chose me to work for him..weeeee.... ;)
There were two shifts...the day and night shifts...and I started working at the dayshift...There was Nico..a former classmate...and Hardy...(schoolmate that's ahead of us)...they are those who really took care of me..etchus...lol!....then Ryan D. was the first agent that I really got to know with...aside from Jesse "John Nosh" who was my partner...(same client)...they were those closest to me since they were my seatmates....then I considered them as my "kuyas"..(i had none so i really did enjoy their company together with Mark B....Jesse's bestfriend...and to mention...hmmmm...Dino...hehe!...Russel...now one of the techies...Rod..now my counterpart..and Nang Jean..hehe...damu pa ah...u know who u are..hehe..peace!..mwah!)...My experience with the dayshift agents were quite fun...Guys outnumbered the girls...and I was just "one of the boys"..lol!
To put it simple and short...I got to enjoy the nightshift environment and I really did enjoy my nightshift experience since most of the people there were so funny and cool...

Where Goodbyes doesnt have to be that sad... ;)
Last Saturday night, March08, me and some of my friends got together for a despidida to our “Sir Mike” (also a friend and classmate who happened to pursue a career in teaching..huwaaat?!!”). For me, that night was really one of a kind...The most enjoyable night so far in my entire life...lol!...and that was supposed to be Mike's party...but it turned out to be...hmmm...lol!
I kind of felt bad too because some of our friends didnt make it...different “excuses” and reasons...and maybe..if they really did make it...wow!..it might have been a blast!...lol!
We celebrated the so-called party in a videoke bar, Annex (our fave hangout when we tend to plan a bonding...aside from our fave pastime/sport – the bowling!,,weeee...I already missed that guys...huhu!..)...The firstcomers were Cilay, Janros, Madame Eaves (haha..bleeh! Lol!..) and me...we were kind of late (lalo na ako..lol) to the exact time that we allotted for this event..(tarush!..event gd ya?..etchus ah..lol!).But still the same...it never stopped us..baw!..lol... so sad that our “clowns” such as Gepee, Rose, Nico, etc. were not there...it could have been a riot!...;)
Then, there came the highlights!...some of our “faculty”...our college teachers arrived.. (Ma'am beth, Sir John (the most loved..lol) and Sir norman...nugun la c Ma'am Duvz) Whoah!..I never really expected that..I mean..they were not the people I thought would come...It never really occurred to me that there's always the possibility that they would come since Mike became an addition to their “crowd”. I got really so excited because those people...were just one of the reasons why I loved my college days so much...They gave us the most wonderful times of our lives...Wohoo!..There were never a dull moment with them during our classes...they were just like our barkadas...but of course...we know what to do when and where...(ows?..lol!)...sometimes lng eh..lol!
Loads of songs, food, drinks and of course..laughters...Our laughs even gave us chills and stomachaches..added that our jaws were quite in a pain!..lol! We sang "padugo"songs from the bottom of our hearts...as in?..lol?!... trying to make Mike and Raiza cry..haha...mga bruha kag bruho gd ah...and of course...the boys sang boyband songs and the girls...oh well...lol...I think the girls defeated the boys in terms of scoring...but nobody was able to defeat Sir John's birit moments....pirde ya pa c M'Beth...galapaw tingug nya eh..sapawan gd c M'Beth..dapat solo ya permi para la damu gamu..lol!...Gadoble kara pa xa...grabe gd ya ah..super talented...xa gd ang pinakadaku contribution sa party...Laughters!...lol
So it turned out to be Sir John's party!..hahaha...dw d nya pag buhian ang mic eh...buligan xa dw namun..pero xa man japun gabira...lol!.... and S'Norman, due to his shyness..just sang the so-called "basic" songs (according to sir john...para dw d xa mabudlayan...lol)..Anyway...we were shocked of the result..he got the highest!..lol!..Baba Black Sheep pa gd tane pakantahun cya...bsi perfect ya gd...lol!...Sadly though, Cilay didnt really gave us the opportunity to hear her golden voice....la gd may nakapilit cya ah...We sang spice girls song to defeat the boys pero ambut kng ngkanta gd mn tu xa...lipsing lng dw hambal ni He..lol!..And Cilay went home ahead of us...
There were also "stupid talks"...Sir John was motivating the couple to get married..para dw sure....lol!...we were teasing Mike and Raiza like we're purple devils trying to lure them into some kind of temptations..lol!... So then to cut it all now...we went home satisfied... and tired..lol!... :)
It was just a splendid night for me... and im sure to everybody too... it was quite bitin...but we know that there's a always a time for everything kag may next time pa..hopefully..mas damu pa gd kmi...para mas sadya..hehe...and I never thought of it as a despidida...we never felt the sadness of Mike being gone for almost 2 years or so...lawig na ina nga d pagkitanay noh...lol!
Enwei..la lng...share ko lng....hahaha...bsta ah..for me..there is no such thing as goodbye.... maski gane patay ka ara ka lng da gabantay sa mga love mo, db?..lol!... So, I hope kahit panu may nakuha mn kmu sa gnpost ko..kng wala mn..la kaso ah...nextym ma post ko mga educational, informative, etc..para dw may pulos mn dw ang blog ko...lol..kng ganahan ko eh..lol!

Lost?..Sort of..hehe!...Well, not really...Blogging is something that I also want to do..somehow..but im not really that motivated to do so...even though a frend of mine keeps on bugging me to do some blogs... for her to have something to read..yes, that's what she told me...she's reli a motivator but I am indeed a Lazy Bone..I f I dont see the need doing it, Id prefer to stay away from it unless it really does caught my attention...They say I can be a good writer but I still could not realize that...hehe!..And im wondering what could be the main motivation that could really get me hooked up into this kind of thing...
Well, I actually have a lot of things in mind that I want to share...some events in my life that I can sometimes relate to some things, thoughts or ideas concerning other things that can also somehow in a way may contribute something to a lot of people out there... I've got issues that I want the world to be aware of...)chika!...lol)..some thoughts that I know are worth the time of those who want to read...
Since I am a lazy bone...and a sleepyhead too, well, those are most of the time covered/hibernated inside my head and they just remain as "drafts"..lol..added that im not really that motivated...ehehe...I know they are just excuses...petty and pathetic excuses...but so what...there's always a time for everything....and a reason for everything..just wait and see me blooming...lol...
