Sleep Early NO TV Tuesday

The majority have spoken (some of my neighbors not included) that they don’t like the climate change that is happening. Global Warming is really a life threatening phenomena.

The once a year Earth Hour is a really a big move and as a supporter of this honorable cause why don’t we step it up a little? Why not make it once every quarter? For some reasons I do believe that making this a regular thing not just once a week is asking for too much and I know that it was just easy for me to say. That is why I decided to act on it. I am launching my very own “Sleep Early NO TV Tuesday”. I am a lady with a mission here, I know it may sound stupid but I believe that every great journey (this one is saving planet Earth) starts with a single (stupid as it may sound in this agenda) step. I promise to do this whenever I can... no lights, no TV & no Ipod (of course any crusade will encounter exclusion(s) somewhere along the way and defensive as it may sound... I am not making any excuses I am just saying that there are always some justifiable circumstances *wink*).

Why Tuesday?

1. It’s my least favourite day of the week (pretty selfish huh?)
2. I don’t know anyone who loves this day (okay, guys especially if I know you don’t come rushing to me swearing that this is your favourite day... keep it to yourself, please?)
3. This day was named after Tyr – Nordic’s God of War, Mars’ (Roman) and Ares’ (Greek) counterpart (thus MARTES). I don’t want lightning bolt to strike me when I say this – they are my least favourite Gods in any mythology.
4. Nothing good is on TV (I planned this pretty well) and a little beauty sleep is good for the health
5. It’s the day of the week that most people feel lazy – it’s the day that followed the busiest day of the week which is Monday, the day after the weekend hence making Tuesday the day when you are very much still feeling attached to you bed or the couch

Everyone is invited to act in lessening the fuel emission and slowing down Global Warming in their own little way (the rate we are going in destroying our planet is really devastating). I know that my campaign may not save the Earth but I know that in an extremely tiny, smallest, leastest (this word doesn’t exist), minuscule, infinitesimal (I have looked this is up trust me I’m not that good with synonyms), little to the highest power... I can lessen my carbon footprint in this planet we called Home.

Happy Monday everyone!

Book-buying Diet (more like starving *sobs*)

I updated my book inventory only to find out that there are 39 books I bought (or were given to me) over the past years that are still unread. Some though were half read but still 39 is a pretty high number. I decided to challenge myself and try to cut the number by half before the International Bookfair or else I will not attend this one big event in my life that happens only just once a year which is usually the highlight of my year (I know it topped my birthday but don’t think I’m not grateful for this life because I AM).

So no more new books for me unless I read at least 19 before September. I need to break my 2 books a month quota and elevate it to atleast 4 if I want to be successful. That is why if I'm not reading I should be reading...

AI Updates & my (unsolicited, so what?) Opinion

I think Michael Castro’s theory about the judge’s favorites being asked to sing last on each performance night for audience recall can be true. You can read MC’s post here.

Come to think of it, Danny, Adam and Lil all sang last on each group night and you can also feel that the judges likes them (a lot, especially Danny Drama este Gokey).

I am just glad that I’ll get to see Anoop to sing again, not just tonight but on the following weeks to come, I can feel that he’ll be top 5 and up. AI is also trying (very hard) to spice things up this season – a new judge, lots of drama, non-stop bickering of Ryan and Simon and then now read this: TOP 13! I know I haven’t been doing much except surf the web today, blog and talk about chismaxes.

For now I am just gonna enjoy watching performances but I’m excited for next year. Can’t wait to see Jamar audition and WIN season 9 (hehehe I have the gift of prophecy).

The Thing I Fear The Most

It's not spiders, it's not the dark, it's not those psycho serial killers roaming around the neighborhood and definitely it's not even the future of ending up alone...

This best describes the fear I feel about the thought of my parents inevitably aging. Time is of the essence, Mother's and Father's Day may still be a few months away but it won't hurt to tell them you love them every now and then.Happy weekend everyone, stay safe.

I really appreciate what Ayala Mall does in helping cultivate (naks) the music appreciation of the Filipinos especially the young generation. They bring bands and other artists to do a series of shows and music fanatics like me can watch them for free.

Later today my friend Zie and I will head to ATC to catch The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live. It seems like all the bands that we wished we could see perform live are one by one coming and doing shows here in our country. Next on our list – Craig David.

For more RJA experience visit their MySpace site here and enjoy. Later!

PS: one 2 words for RJA after I saw them perform: BEYOND AMAZING!!! (written March 6, 2009)

Jump! (di pwedeng wala ang shot na natalon)

nice trees noh? I just have this strange feeling that the trees were sad (feeling can relate to them - dahil ba panira kame sa tabi nila? hehehe)

cool sunset (look at the blending of colors)

First there were 4 (guess who's really holding the camera)

Then there's 3...

...2... then none

Reflection by Rhea (cool concept ;)



Can't wait for the next beach trip... I'm really thankful for the company and friendship... sa uulitin girls, special thanks to Madam Ingrid (the best ka maám!!!).
