You are The Sun
Happiness, Content, Joy.
The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.
Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.
The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

It was my first time to dine in a dampa. For the benefit of those who dont know what a dampa is, I will spill some details. Dampa is a common name for a place with a wet market where you buy your raw foods, mostly seafoods like C-amote, C-acao, C-ucumber, C-hicken, C-hippy, etc. etc. etc and those edible plants and animals you find in the C like lato(green weed that looks like small grapes), shrimps, crabs, squids, and fishes(Ill choke you Inday if you'll correct me) with restaurants nearby that will cook(not free) your freshly bought items to your liking.
Chel, Kat, and I bought:
1kg smaller prawns
1kg bigger prawns
500g First Filipino Hero Fish (FYI: Lapu-lapu)
1kg "GAY" crabs (And YES, there is a "Bakla" variety of crabs)
Then we brought it to the restaurant and ordered how it would be cooked. While waiting for our food we "half-surprised" Kat with a gift. She said later on that she had a hint that we might give her the Doraemon stuffed toy since its her favorite. And after a more than half an hour of waiting the food came.
Half of the smaller prawns became HALABOS and the other half just steamed. All the bigger prawns turned into TEMPURAS. The mussels as baked tahong. Half of the gay crabs bathed with tausi while the other half went to the steam bath. Lastly, Lapu-lapu became sweet and sour after a losing battle with the chef.
Thank You, Lord for the very sumptious seafood feast.

Neighbors #1 lives just right next door and I mean just next door coz the only thing that divides our places is a thin plywood wall. As early as 6am you can already hear their very loud karaoke playing "Tinamaan ka na ba ng kidlat na nakakagulat (Have you ever been hit by lightning that stuns)" song or whatever the title of that corny song. Yes my friends, that's their favorite song and everytime they play it I just want to shout to answer "Yes my dear good neighbors I've been struck a lot times so next song please and let me go back to sleep." And today was a special day... They put the volume to the maximum level leaving my ears helpless.
My newly recognized Neighbor #2 is a faceless void since all I know about him is that he has a car. And today he just loves to make his car alarm system make annoying sound repeatedly from 6am to 8:30am
Neighbors #3 are from the other apartment just meters away from ours. They are a family of 5. The eldest giant son is in highschool. The second son is an 8-year old thief. Yup, he's a thief! He stole my flipflops. I looked for it for days only to find my poor slippers already shrunk and dirty on his feet while hes playing basketball. The youngest is a 4 year old spoiled girl who has a sweet and cute voice when she talks but when her tantrums strike her wails will drive you mad. You will know that the man of their house is about to leave coz you will hear his TamarawFX being conditioned and we just love listening to the noise of the car. Tess, the mom, is the most energetic of them all. She goes to the plaza every morning to join an aerobics session together with her girl friends. I guess its already their habit after they exercise to go to Tess' place and have another lung exercise. What do they do? They shout at each other! Yes my friends, they shout and not "talk". I guess that's how they talk way back when they were still in the mountains. Perhaps they were close neighbors then like Tess lived in one hill while her bestfriends lived in another hilltops. And the best thing of all that never fails to wake me is the sweet-to-the-ear cursing that they do. The just love to shout the PI word as if there's no tomorrow for them to say that curse. "Putang Ina(Whore Mother)" here, "Putang Ina" there, and "Putang Ina" everywhere even if there are children in the compound that can hear them.
Nice neighborhood, isn't it?

6778.16 (Available Cash)
- 995.00 (DSL)
-5000.00 (Credit Cards)
783.16 (Budget until the next payday)
So here I am with only 783.16 pesos to get thru November 15. I have to spend not more than 78 pesos per day! This means I have to walk from home to the office and vice versa. Well, walking is a good cardio exercise and will help me to lose weight. Two kilometers is not far anyway. The best part is I have to be strict with my diet. No rice if possible and 2 viands a day would be enough. Lets just see if I cant hit that 135lbs that Myrla, my gym consultant, set as my ideal weight. Dont worry guys im taking my multivitamins.
Therefore, being broke isn't bad at all. Please click the ads, the laptops and digicams below, to donate.

Some catchy lines from his blogs:
Is it “Nothing ventured, nothing gained?” or “Nothing ventured, nothing lost?”
It really is amazing how well nature heals and preserves itself from its own catastrophic occurrences. It's disturbing, though, how a massive volcanic eruption spewing tons of ash cannot permanently silence the life of the land, but man can.

… dumating na sa kalagitnaan ng show at mukhang minamalas na si Inday…
Kris: Ok Inday, mukhang kelangan na natin ng tulong sa mga friends mo… sino ba yung bigotilyong lalaki na naka-polo? Ano name nya?
Inday: Ahh, that’s my master Mr. Montemayor.
Kris: Ahhh sya pala yun, how cute naman pala eh. Sige sir, give us a number.
Mr. Montemayor: Hi Kris, good evening. I’m a fan. I choose number 22 please.
Kris: Ano Inday ok ba yung number 22?
Inday: Whatever, we shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds us anyway. Go ahead.
Kris: [taray naman] Sofie, buksan na!
[ang laman ng briefcase 22 ay 5,000]
Kris: Good job! Sino naman yung gwapong lalake na naka jumper na katabi ni Mr. Montemayor? What’s his name?
Inday: Ahh, that’s my on again off again boyfriend, Dodong the gardener.
Kris: Ooohh, sya pala yun. Ok Dodong, give us a number!
Dodong: Hi babes, I choose briefcase 9 if it’s ok with you. If not, it’s ok with me as long as it’s ok with you.
Kris: Ano raw? Inday, number 9 daw ok say0?
Inday: Yes Kris, it’s fine with me.
Kris: Wow ang bait pag kay Dodong. Ederlyn… buksan na!!
…nanlaki ang mga mata ni Inday at hindi sya makapaniwala. Natahimik at mukhang kakapusin sya ng hininga…
Inday: YOU!!! How dare you invade my moment!
[nagulat si Kris at ang mga audience sa reaksyon ni Inday. Nagpatawag si Kris ng commercial break at nagpakuha ng tubig para kay Inday.]
Nagkatitigan sina Inday at Ederlyn. Nakangisi si Ederlyn habang hawak ang briefcase ni Inday.
Ederlyn: Pinapangako ko, Inday… pagbukas luluhod ang mga tala! hahahahaha!
Inday: What? Can you speak up? What are you mumbling up there. Can somebody give her a microphone please?
Kris: Ano ba!! Tama na nga ang drama ninyo, Ederlyn buksan mo na ang case at umexit ka na kung ayaw mong mapalitan! (naiirita na si Kris)
Dali-daling binuksan ni Ederlyn ang briefcase at ang laman ay… P3,000,000.
Nanghinayang ang mga audience… Ang mga natirang values ay 250, 1K, 20K, 50K, and 500K.
Inday: NooOoo…. (sabay tingin kay Dodong at napapaluha), how could you…
Dodong: I’m so sorry Inday, please forgive me.
Kris: Hayyy, drama again. Ang offer ni banker sa pagbabalik ng Kapamilya, Deal.. or No Deal!
[pagtapos ng commercial break… mukhang composed na ulit si Inday]
Kris: Inday, are you okay? Ang offer ni banker ay 99 thousand pesos. ‘Sing rami siguro ng pilipinong pinadugo mo na ilong. Is it a Deal or No Deal?
Tahimik lang si Inday tilang may kinocompute sa ulo habang ang mga audience ay nagsisigawan ng “No Deal”, ang iba naman ay “Deal”.
Kris: Wait lang, kung mapapansin ninyo we have only have 5 cases left, and among those 5, apat doon ay mas maliit na value…
Inday: Kris, do you mind? Can I do my own thinking?
Natameme si Kris, pati ang audience ay natahimik.
Kris: Taray to the max! (pabulong sa sarili)
Inday: Ok, I’m ready. Upon looking at the reality of the situation, 80% of the cases left have at least 49K less than the banker’s offer. The only way I can do better than what is offered is that if my case contains the 500k or I’d get to open one of the four lower values. But I have to keep in mind that there’s only 20% probability that this would happen. I have to take note, however, that the banker’s offer is roughly around 15% lower than the offer I expected based on the arithmetic mean of the values left.
Kris: Lorddd… panaginip ba ‘to? Ayokonaaa….
Inday: Accepting a deal for less than the mean should generally be regarded as a weak decision so I would say, NO DEAL!
Limang briefcase na lang ang natitira at kasama na doon ang case ni Inday…
Kris: My God, nakaka-stress itong episode na ito ha. Baka dumugo na rin ang ilong ko sa’yo Inday. Sige Inday, go ahead and choose 1 briefcase!
Inday: Ok Kris, I choose briefcase #5 please?
Kris: Briefcase #5! Mimi bago mo buksan yan I would first like to thank Figliarina by Schubizz for my sandals, Bambi Fuentes for my hair and make-up and Pepsi Herrera for my gown tonight.
Kris: Ok Mimi, buk…
Inday: Ahh Kris, can I also take time to thank a few people? I mean, I did save us a few minutes of airtime right?
Kris: (“kapal naman talaga ng mukha”…bulong sa sarili) Sige, ok lang go ahead. (naka-smile pa rin)
Inday: Thanks! Yes, I would like to thank Frank Provost for my hair and make-up, Jimmy Choo for my sandals and my dear friend Oscar dela Renta for my gown tonight.
BLAG!! Tinumba ni Kris ang podium at nagwalk-out. Hindi na natapos ang show kaya’t binigyan na lang ni Banker si Inday ng kalahating milyon para sa kanyang oras.
Inday: Oh, and thanks to the people of Cartier for sending me these nice earrings for tonight!
[Ito ang isa sa mga un-aired episode ng Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal]

Have you ever taken a very easy exam? Well, I had. It was a Filipino101 Final exam. We had the exam in my elementary school and among my classmates were Ronalisa Pamaran Jr., Charmane Yares, and Abba Kaba, the pupil who was admired by my teachers in elementary because she looks different but goes to school with the rest of us and shes on the Section 1 class from grade 1 thru 6 while I just managed to be in the third or tenth section. Our professor was in the covered court 100 meters away dictating the questions while we were inside my grade 1 classroom. Strange isn't it? He didn't even seem to mind what we were doing inside.
I wasn't prepared for the exam and I had no idea that I missed all the previous quizes including the prelims and the midterms. How was that possible? I have no idea either. I even missed the first question coz I was late. The worst thing is I didn't bring my pen and paper. Fortunately, I found a pen outside the door. We had to use grade 1 or 3 paper-- another problem. I asked my classmates if they have a spare but all of them had none. Abba was so kind that she went out of the room to buy some paper for me. When she got back it was already question number 2.
Ano ang tawag sa nagmamaneho ng eroplano?
a. Piloto b. Kutsero c. driver d. all of the above
Easy isn't it?
The third and last question was a surprise. It's like youre on "K! The 1 Million Peso Videoke Challenge". You only have to sing and if you can answer it you will automatically get a 5.0 .
Kahit sabihin na mali ako
alipin mo o bihag mo,
kung pag-ibig ang pag-uusapan
di ko na ililihim pa
ang damdamin ko sa’yo
sa akin ay ______ kita
I gave the right answer and BOOM! loud fireworks started. That's when I woke up on election day coz I was startled by the loud firecrackers outside. I immediately notice that Question Number 3 was playing loudly on my neighbor's videoke and I was probably singing while asleep. DAMN! It was all a dream.

I guess everyone in the office was hooked on the same website waiting for news updates. As the minutes passed, more and more were reported injured and killed. Links to websites that contain pictures of the scene were forwarded through instant messengers. By looking at the photos, you wont believe that it was just an LPG that exploded but a bomb.
My little grudge to the security guards was triggered again. Initial investigations say that at least 2Kg of explosive might have been used. Damn! How could a bomb that big was able to get thru "security"? Hmmmm let me guess... The suspect might have dressed well. He probably was wearing branded long sleeves and trousers with shiny leather shoes. Some (I mean not all but there are many out there) guards only check the bags of poor-looking people and exempt the opposite. Perhaps the bag of the suspect wasn't check. They should change their attitude.
Suddenly, I remember Dormine, my classmate in college who now works in Makati Stock Exchange building, so I texted her if she was okay. Her reply was "Hehe buanga, nsaved ko s akng pgkalimtanun rye. :D m0ad2 r b ta ko gnha mgrocery. Hehe ok ra ko rye. Sa quiapo na lng ko mlaag. Hehe Thanx"(Hehe it's crazy, I was saved by my forgetfulness rye. :D i was planning to go there for grocery. Hehe im ok rye. I'll wander in quiapo instead. Hehe Thanx) Thank God she was fine.
But there was still something to thank Him for. I was retelling the news to John thru MSN when he popped a message saying that Tetet, his cousin, was there just 15 minutes before the explosion. I asked him for Tet's MSN id so I can chat with her. According to her, she was in Glorietta2 around 1pm to get invitation cards. The store was under an escalator in the ground floor. She was also going to meet her friend there at 2:30. I couldn't imagine if she waited there. But God has His own way. At around 1:15 Tetet walked going to Glorietta 4 then 15 minutes after...

Remember Jojo Alejar? He's the host of this comedy show, The Sobrang Good Nite Show with Jojo A All The Way. Watch it every Monday to Friday at 11PM on Qtv11.
Here was one of his jokes (not in exact words though. but i'll try to convey this one as close to the original)
Aminado daw ang Kapamilya network na talo daw sa ratings ang daily morning show nina Boy at Kris sa katapat nitong show na SiS nina Carmina, Janice, at Gelli. Kaya may pagbabago daw munang gagawin ang show. Aalis muna si Kris at papalitan nina Sam at Piolo. Ang title ng kanilang show ay "SiS" din.
hehehehe Are you thinking about the Sam and Piolo's "gay" issue?
the show is entitled "SiS" coz they are "Sis-soned" actors [LOLz]
Ok enough with those guys. I dont want to have enemies here. Peace Neldz, Graciel, and Mia.

Lolit Solis stumbles on the "date" of heartthrobs Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby
Elyas Isabelo Salanga
Monday, October 15, 2007
According to Manay Lolit's article in the Philippine Star Ngayon, it all began when she got lost inside Sofitel, trying to find the location of the exhibit. Owing to misdirection and probably the unavailability of a venue map, she found herself entering Sofitel's poolside coffee shop at around four in the afternoon. Realizing that she was in the wrong place, she started looking for another entrance or exit, walking and looking left and right.
Two men caught Manay Lolit's attention as she sauntered over. She noticed that the two men looked sweet to each other, exchanging whispers, their cheeks nearly touching. As Manay Lolit approached, waiters who saw her called out her name, apparently wanting to get an autograph. The two men, upon hearing Manay Lolit's name, hastily left as Manay Lolit nearly tripped trying to get a closer look.
Her curiosity rewarded her as she found who the two men were: It was Sam Milby and Piolo Pascual. Someone told Manay Lolit that Sam and Piolo frequented the Sofitel poolside coffee shop since the place usually doesn't have many visitors.
According to Manay Lolit, she wouldn't have noticed the two if it weren't for their obviously hasty retreat. She wouldn't even put malice into what she saw if Sam and Piolo didn't mind being found out or if they had just said "hello," even if they didn't know her well. All that she could do on her way home was ponder on what she had witnessed.As for Sam and Piolo, people can only speculate about their true sexuality as both heartthrobs have been rumored to be gays. Some write-ups say that the two are in a relationship; some say that Sam isn't gay because he's attracted to Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis Smith; the same with Piolo, who has been linked to Judy Ann Santos and Rica Peralejo. But Piolo has a son out of wedlock.
A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist complimented the Mexican fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.
"Not very long," answered the Mexican.
"But then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the American.
The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs and those of his family.
The American asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"
"I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. I have a full life."
The American interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat."
"And after that?" asked the Mexican.
"With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New York City! From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."
"How long would that take?" asked the Mexican.
"Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years," replied the American.
"And after that?"
"Afterwards? Well my friend, that's when it gets really interesting," answered the American, laughing. "When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!"
"Millions? Really? And after that?" asked the Mexican.
"After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends."
And the moral of this story is: ......... Know where you're going in life... you may already be there.

Anyway, for those who want to ask why I bought an HP dv6500t. Here are my reasons (in no particular order):
I envied Mike, Archie, and Karla coz they already bought their new PC's.
I wanna play DOTA on a better system.
I just want to spend my money on useless things.
I like to drown myself with debts.
To those who know me well... You know my TRUE REASONS.

Before I succumb to oblivion I'll share this info with you guys first. Hope this one is useful for you. Jun was generous enough to search thru the net for some articles on how to burn tummy fat. He found this one at http://ezinearticles.com/?Burn-Tummy-Fat---2-Awesome-Tips-for-a-Sexy-Midsection&id=463608 which states:
"Trying to burn tummy fat can be a difficult thing to do!
The mainstream idea of how to burn tummy fat involves eating a small amount of calories combined with doing lots of crunches everyday.
If you have ever tried this approach, you have almost undoubtedly found yourself to have slow results.Doing lots of crunches might help you gain core strength, but it will not help to "spot reduce" your tummy. Spot reduction is a common myth that if you want to lose fat in a certain area, you do so by working the muscle underneath it.
Unfortunately, you cannot lose fat in a certain area by doing lots of crunches. If you are going to lose fat, you will do so all over your body. Therefore, you need to focus on losing overall body fat as opposed to just fat in one area!
Now that you know that spot reduction through lots of crunches is not an adequate way to burn tummy fat, its time that you learn two great ways that work!
BURN TUMMY FAT TIP #1: Total body workouts are the way to go.
Total body workouts are a great way to burn tummy fat because of how effective they are at adding lean muscle mass all over your body. By adding lean muscle mass, you help to increase your metabolism.
Having a fast metabolism is an awesome way to burn fat because it will help you to burn calories while being active and also while at rest. Doing lots of crunches definitely does not work enough muscle to help raise your metabolism.
Here is an example of what a total body workout to burn fat might look like:
1. Inverted pushups
3. Seated row
4. Hamstring leg curls on a stability ball
5. Ab crunches on a stability ball
6. Med ball squat, curl, and press
Can you see how the above workout works your entire body? Remember that to raise your metabolism to burn fat, you need to work a lot of muscle. The more muscle you work, the more lean muscle mass you will gain, and the more tummy fat you will burn =)
BURN TUMMY FAT TIP #2: Have the right diet
This is the cornerstone to effectively burn fat. If you do not have the right diet, then no amount of exercise is going to help!
The main thing you want to concentrate on with your diet is to eat the small meals of protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. If you eat these in small meals 4-6 times per day, you will not feel hungry as often and your blood sugar will stay more level.
You also want to avoid high glycemic "bad" carbs as much as possible. These carbs include white bread, junk food, fast food, refined sugar, etc. These bad carbs make your blood sugar go very high, and your body will respond be releasing more insulin to store the excess as body fat."
