i remember this alanis song when i think of the situation today.

you see, a supertyphoon will be hitting luzon again. and as a lot of us are scrambling to protect our properties and making sure there's enough food and water, and pray that it will at least weaken as it passes, some people are actually praying for the potential huge amount of rain!

now isn't that ironic?

months earlier, a warning has already been raised that next year (until June 2007), there will be water shortage as dams that supply the water to mega manila and nearby provinces are now nearing the critical level way ahead of schedule! and since then, they've been hoping for more rain and even a typhoon to fill up that need.

now isn't that ironic?

some pray that'll no more typhoon, and some hope they'll be more.

irony of life.

Yesterday I was late for work and didn't make any excuse for that because a lot of us in the office were late because of the tremendous (yes, that huge!) traffic that the repair of a portion of a busy highway has caused.

Today I am late again. Partly because of the traffic but more of being tardy! And I am so guilty because I made an excuse for that, no, make that a lie, I lied for being late. I told my boss that I need to go to the bank to deposit money to my sister's account, and since our office is located in an "isolated urban area" of fort bonifacio, i'll be needing at least a 30 minute effort to go to a bank and another 45 minutes to actually transact and be able to go back to the office, hence its acceptable to go first to the bank in the morning before coming to the office. I was doing that when there's really a need to do that. But today, I used that excuse to lie just to make it appear I am not tardy.

And I am so guilty for doing that.

What makes me guitier is the fact that my boss (he's a japanese) is so kind and here I am abusing his kindness!

I do not want to do this again, it's so uncomfortable, very uncomfortable. A lie is still a lie no matter how you want to call it, and that makes me less of a good boy, Santa may not visit me for being bad. LOL. yay, that didn't help, I am still guilty. Better do something good today.

On Philippine Idol: Miguel is out (finally, finally, FINALLY!!!)

after weeks and weeks and weeks of waiting, Miguel is finally eliminated. There, eliminated. E-L-I-M-I-N-A-T-E-D. yes.

i am actually happy for Miguel, and i think he is also, at least he is now free from those harsh comments both by the judges and the viewing public. i think he sung his last song more relaxed compared with sunday's performance. at 17, the pressure must have been too much for him

for now, always remind Mr. C for that song he promised he'll co-write with you. good luck to you miguel, and at least finish your high school!

for the big 3, more good luck.

good thing that my little christmas bonus is coming, i can spare a few hundreds for mau and only for mau. i think gian has an edge on the energy but definitely mau will give him a good fight, it's between gian and mau. for jan, good luck to you too.

What is scary for me?

Horror movies? not really.

yesterday, i viewed one post in anton's blog that documents his goungzhou exotic food adventure that leads him to eat snakes, hairy crabs, water bugs. there was a warning that those with weak heart and stomach should not view the post, but i did hehehe. i don't have a weak heart but i have a problem in the stomach area. i thought its not going to be as gross as he picture it to be, but it was!!

in the pictures were plateful of snake or snakes, (with the skin!!), sushi-style alligator (omg, there's the hand/foot of the poor fellow dangling on the edge of the plate), water bugs (how the cockroach looked like is exactly how they look), and the not so scary hairy crab, a squid and a few others.

i told him how brave and courageous he was for eating/doing those things, but according to him, it was worth the experience but will never do that again. hahaha

as for me, the only exotic foods that i've tried are bayawak (monitor lizard i think) and frogs, and both of them taste like chicken. that's the farthest that i could go as far as exotic foods are concerned, farther than that? just kill me. hehehe

To Boracay!!

after the long wait, we'll be off to Boracay tomorrow.

i've been waiting for this since forever and i cannot hide my excitement that after years of planning it will finally push thru. its going to be 4days 3nights of fun and i am planning to get as much picture/s as i could, i will just worry about the printing/developing expenses later. haha.

for the meantime, i hope boracay will top pagudpud as my favorite beach


great, just what you need when you're next in line to deposit money at the bank!

this morning, i waited for at least 30 minutes for the bank to open, and another 25 minutes falling in line and when its my turn already, the bank teller showed me a huge OFFLINE signage! hah.

i waited again for the next 5 minutes, asking the teller if its online already for almost every 20 seconds, then 5 minutes became, 10 minutes... 15 minutes... 20 minutes!!! there, i gave up! i wasted almost an hour for nothing.

sigh, advancement of technology should make our daily lives "more livable" but this morning and many times before, i experienced the opposite. its like you enter the bank, sit there, look at people around, look at tellers who do not smile, heard some phone ringing, stand and then go out. how productive can you get?!

anyway, modern technology is good if it is good, and bad if it is bad. it is just ironic that it is bad when you need it the most.

Britney Spears files for divorce

only now.

when she marries kevin federline (sp?), there was a large stamp on their marriage certificate that says "soon to divorce". they are the most, most, most likely celebrity couple (is kevin a celebrity lol) to split and i am actually bothered (lol) that it is happening only now. good for britney and also good that a pre-nuptial agreement was placed before she weds this kevin. why him in the first place?

oh well, at least she returned to her consciousness before she reached the whitney houston proportion.

Apple was eliminated

Sigh, another good singer in Apple Chiu says goodbye to Philippine Idol.

The top six is now a contest between three of the best singers (Pow, Mau and Gian) against three of the weaker (i finally found the more tame word for "not-so-good" hehehe) singers (Ken, Jan and Miguel).

Will the fans of Apple, Arms, Reymond, Drae, Stef and even Jelli text their votes for Pow, Mau or Gian? I think so. They're more likely to vote for the best singers than support the weaker ones.

Philippine Idol Dance theme night

with guest judge, Regine Tolentino! yes, a dancer in a singing competition!
before any rendering any jugdment, here's the recap.

ryan opened the show informing everyone to get their dancing shoes ready, its party time tonight!

the remaining idols sung "Sumayaw, Sumunod" on a platform at the back of the judges' table. it was a bit short for everyone to enjoy.

and here's how the performance goes:
1. JAN - La Vida Loca (in black jacket which he removes later on to reveal his sando underneath)
Mamita: "Very good! can i dance with you onstage? (jan obliged and they dance onstage for about 10 secs)"
Regine: "Very powerful! Sexy! Bravo!
Mr. C: "Jan, nakaka-loca!!!"
- it is a very good start, Jan, who's admittedly not a dancer, was suprisingly good. so much energy and i think the dancers and the lights really help energized the performance. it was not a very strong vocal performance, can see the stiffness in his dancing but the girls love it. give jan props for the effort.

2. POW - Got to be real (in blue shirt topped by leopard printed polo and black overcoat)
Regine : "You look awesome! It was not my favorite song, but now it is."
Mamita: yadda, yadda, yadda and she keeps on pointing the coat is getting longer and that soon Pow will be wearing a gown. oh, she enjoyed it!
Mr. C: "We already saw you perform like that, start reinventing yourself, nothing new, try to offer something new."
- pow has the energy to this song, i just thought the song does not have so much vocal and i was not really amazed by it.

3. MIGUEL - Make it with you (in ala-German Moreno glittering dolphin-trenchcoat)
Mamita: "ARe you nervous? you're shaking! I prefer you singing ballad."
Regine: "There were awkward movements there, and in one or two moments, i thought you're pa-girl (girly)"
Mr. C: "You should see how the other contestants work harder, it was a bad song choice, it was too much for you."
- Miguel lacks the energy and you can really feel that he's not into the song and the song is not with him, i think his performance is a bit lost, not good.

4. KEN - Signed, sealed, delivered (with a dark colored feather (diva!!!) in a silver striped (!!!) satin (!!!) pants)
Regine: "Over all performance, its a lot of fun, I just don't get your look, its distracting!" haha
Mamita: "I am very happy for you tonight, these kind of songs really suits you!"
Mr. C: "I am seeing a very confident Ken, and you brought it tonight!"
- I did not enjoy it because the outfit really, really distracts me to the point that i am laughing! i really do not get ken and for me there's nothing special in his voice, he is trying so hard to hit the high notes to the point that he's screeching! ugh

5. MAU - Shy guy (she in pink!!)
Mamita: "That song should be sung by somebody who's slim, tall, sexy... you should lose weight!" ouch.
Regine: "You're a diva so you should look like a diva."
Mr. C: "For me, you're the best singer, if you want to be the Philippine Idol, you have to take it seriously."
- hmm, i cannot say anything about Mau's voice, it is solid and there's energy in there but i am just wondering why I cannot see it in her moves? she should have moved! she should have danced! there's something lacking in her performance, but i still love her though. lol.

6. GIAN - Rock DJ (the usual gian outfit, white tight fitting shirt, black jacket)
Mamita: "I expect you to dance tonight, but you did not. but i love you."
Regine: "I really, really appreciate your small dance movements, it's the best performance for me tonight!" wow.
Mr. C: "It was just okay for me, it counterpoints everyone's performance."
- and then gian started talking again (he should stop explaining himself!), i like his performance, not so big but enjoyable, it maybe because i also like robbie william hehehe. gian did a little robbie in his number, he removed his jacket as if stripping, in the video of this song, robbie actually stripped down to his birthday suit. i think no one get that jacket stripping. it was good gian.

7. APPLE - Lady Marmalade (in a bridal veil headdress)
Regine: "I was distracted by you pulling you pants up."
Mamita: "You got the looks, you should have just the pants fall off! I enjoyed your singing."
Mr. C: "Strong performance, surprise us again next week."

bryanboy's the anti-christ?

i just saw this in a link in yuga' blog.
the link will lead you to bryanboy's blog, and hell yeah, his blog is on fire! this picture created quite a stir and now bryanboy is being called the anti-christ.
i honestly do not care what other people will write or will not write in their blog, but this one's quite offensive.
there might be some other things that maybe more offensive than this, but can they just leave the image alone?
oh well..
