Congratulations to the one lucky winner from Luzon!

Ever wonder what happens to Facebook accounts when their owner dies?

Ever wonder what happens to Facebook accounts when their owner dies?  I never really thought of it until I stumbled upon this info graphics.  Interesting.

The Irony of Life

Photo from here.
You decided to travel the straight road, change for the better, but then when you get there, here comes a vehicle that leaves you no choice but to move on the side...You wanted to slow down a bit or pullover on the curbs... You saw a sign that confirms everything will turn out fine when you stop but then you see crocodiles slowly coming out of the water.  You are now caught between being hit by a vehicle and being eaten alive by hungry crocodiles.  Which one will you choose?

The irony of life.

Prince William and Kate Middleton wedding date revealed

Where The Wind Blows: Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged

After much speculation on when and where the could-be-wedding-of-the-decade will be, the British Monarchy Twitter (wow, they have Twitter account) announced that the wedding will be on April 29th at Westminster Abbey. The lovely couple chose the date because they wanted a spring wedding and it is the feast of St. Catherine of Siena. The Westminster Abbey, on the other hand, has sentimental values. It is where Queen Elizabeth II wed and where British kings and queens were crowned. Although many speculated that the wedding will be held at St. Paul's Cathedral-where Princess Diana and Prince Charles wed in 1981-the couple opted for a more intimate location as Westminster Abbey holds lesser seats.

Prime Minister David Cameron already announced that the wedding day will be a holiday.

So, mark it on your calendar...April 29. The date the most eligible bachelor will tie the knot... and we will just watch him drift away with Kate.

Facts About South Park

I miss South Park!  My best bud in college and I watch it whenever time permits... she even impersonate Kenny.  Haha!  I miss the hilarity, the controversial topics, the uncensored criticisms and the wit.  I think it is just rightful that Time Magazine said it is one of the greatest shows of all time.

Here are some facts about South Park.

No winner!

No one got the 543 million jackpot in today's Grand Lotto draw.

Here are the numbers, in no particular order:


My numbers are:


Proper Ways of Eating Sushi and Using Chopsticks

I love sushi!  I don't get to eat it often and it is something that my palate wishes to taste every now and then.  I learned to eat it and use chopsticks when I was in college.  My friends and I used to eat in a Japanese restaurant near the university and my friend taught me some pointers on how to properly eat sushi and use chopsticks.  Well, I learned today that I still have some things to remember about the famous Japanese food and hashi.

Sourced here.

Grand Lotto Draw Day

Today is the draw date of Grand Lotto 6/55.  I am on pins and needles.  Who wouldn't be if the prize at stake is more than 500 million?  This is a record breaking moment in the history of lotto in the Philippines.  I am panting already just by thinking how many days it will take a single person to count all that money.

I will not reveal yet my numbers.  I will post later the results.

Bath & Body Works Secret Wonderland new fragrance line

My favorite Bath & Body Works launched a new fragrance--Secret Wonderland, that you can buy as body lotion, shower gel, perfume, fragrance mist, and body butter.  As for their launching promo, if you buy three, you get three of the same item for free.  Price starts from $10.50 to $29.50.  Click on the link to buy.

Just perfect because my Bath & Body Works lotion is almost empty.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged

Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement today after 8 years of dating.  They plan to wed in 2011.  Prince William gave Prince's Diana's engagement ring of 18-karat blue sapphire  surrounded by diamonds to Kate a month ago in Kenya when he proposed.

Their announcement officially ends my infatuation to the most eligible bachelor.  I wish them well (no sour graping here).

I should live in these places

I should live in the Town of Normal where everything seems to be normal.  Actually, this town in Illinois is derived from ecole normale which means a teacher training college.  Simply put, the name was from a college that was built in Bloomington on 1861.

Or maybe I should live in Hell.  I heard it is a wonderful place to unwind.  I am not talking about the hell down there, it is the Hell up North in Norway.

New Books

I have two new books again that I bought yesterday for a bargain price of 99 pesos for two books.  That's around $1 a book.

It's How You Play the Game by Jimmy Gleacher.  Los Angeles Times describes this novel as "heartfelt, genial comedy... Gleacher isn't content merely to us the game.  Rather, he comes in on the players' strategies and bluffs and doubts:  the relentless and, in Gleacher's views, ultimately necessary gamesmanship of love, class and self."

California Dreaming by Lawrence Donegan.  The Scotsman said, "the warm hearted humor and laugh-out-loud lines of Lawrence Donegan... are the equivalent of chicken soup: warm, comforting, and... deeply satisfying."

Pacquiao beats Margarito via unanimous decision

Once again, Manny Pacquiao has proven that he is the world's greatest boxer.  Via unanimous decision, Pacquio took home the title of Super Welterweight Champion of the World--his eighth boxing title.  Try to beat that!  I was surprised at how strong Margarito was, I actually thought he will be knocked out on the 6th round.

Congrats Pacman!  You surely made the Filipinos proud.

So, what's next?  Will Pacman retire?  No one knows yet.  Let's just wait and see.

Pacquiao vs. Margarito

Who do you think will take home the title of World Lightweight Champion?

I am still for Pacman.

Grand Lotto Still No Winner


I am so happy that no one got the Grand Lotto jackpot of 423M because I was not able to place my bet earlier this day.  The Grand Lotto jackpot is the highest in the history of lotto in the Philippines.  I will try my luck again on the next draw date.

The lucky numbers today, in no particular order, are:

I tried my luck in Lotto today and bet 80 pesos for a chance to win more than 300M.  It's my first time to bet and I had butterflies in my stomach while the winning numbers are being drawn.  I did not win, unfortunately.  The good news is that no one got the jackpot.

These are my non-winning number combinations.

The Truth About Halloween

So, true!  You rock, Dante Shepherd!

Funny and Weird Family Pictures

Hahaha!  There are no words to explain these funny and weird family pictures.

See more photos right here, see if your family picture is included.  Hahaha!

Post Halloween Scare

Three days has passed since Halloween but I still have scary stories to tell.

It was around 6 o'clock in the evening yesterday when I excused myself from our meeting.  I had to pee.  I used the back door that leads to a private clinic to exit.  It was not really dark... dim.  After using the comfort room, I went back again to the clinic that leads to the meeting room.  On the left corner of my eye, just beside the consultation table, I noticed a child sitting still.  She was wearing a white dress, her hands are clasped on her lap and her head was slightly bent forward.  I could sense she was sad.  I also sensed she wasn't a real child.  I hurriedly entered the meeting room without even looking back.  I immediately told my seat mate what I saw and I gave her major goosebumps.

Just this afternoon, a strange thing happened again.  This time it was a doppleganger.  I immediately went to the office after eating lunch at the canteen to take some rest and fix myself.  Our office is located at the basement (we call it dungeon), just under the old Operating Room.  I bumped into Lea, one of our helpers, on my way going down the stairs.  She smiled like she normally does but never said a word.  I smiled back and didn't notice anything weird until I entered the room.  My office mate told me that Lea is looking for me to ask me if I have any bills I would like to settle because she will go to the bank later.  I hurriedly went to catch the helper thinking she'll go to the bank already without asking me.  When I stepped out of the door, I saw Lea was talking to one of our office mates on the far corner of the other office.  I called her.  I told her that I thought she already left because I bumped into her hurriedly going upstairs.  She was shocked of what I said.  Apparently, she never left the office and it's the first time that she saw me (when I called her from another room).  She had goosebumps.

That's the third time that I crossed into a doppelganger in the same location.
