Miss Universe 2009 pageant stopped my blogging drought. I just watched the pre pageant clip of Ms. Philippines, Bianca Manalo, and I must say that she's doing really well in the preliminaries. She was really confident in strutting her stuff especially in the swimsuit round. She also has a really great and toned body. This is the first time that I really campaigned for our delegate. I kept re-posting her pre pageant clip in Facebook, online forums and here in my blog. =D

Pre Pageant clip of Bianca.


Being 5 foot 10 inches tall is already an advantage when you join the Miss U pageant. Bianca is 5'10 BTW. =D

Don't forget to watch the Miss Universe 2009 pageant this August 24, Monday, 9:30 AM on ABS-CBN live straight from the beautiful archipelago of the Bahamas (ohh, I wish I could go there).

I'm sooooo excited!!!!! <3!>

Even though I didn't get to spend much time with you because it's complicated, I still love you. I will cherish all the memories that we were together even though I can only count those.


While everyone was talking about the death of Micheal Jackson or the new Transformers movie, I was blabbering about RICKY RUBIO. =D

Ricky Rubio is an 18 year old NBA player. He was picked (5th overall, NBA draft 2009) by the Minnesota Timberwolves. He started his pro career in 2005 so that makes him 14 or 15 years old that time. He was part of the Spanish national basketball team in the Beijing Olympics.

I was never a fan of the NBA( PBA fan here, San Miguel Beermen is my fave team) but vowed myself if Ricky Rubio gets drafted in the NBA I'll watch his every single game. Hope his games with the Timberwolves will be shown in Basketball TV. Actually, my addiction has just started. I didn't attend my first class just to watch the NBA Draft 09. LOL! I just came out of my closet of being a LA Lakers fan. My fave player is Trevor Ariza. =)

October takes forever. I'm itching to watch Ricky Rubio play -- again. =D

EDIT: And then, he didn't play for the Timberwolves. It's totally fine if he stays in Europe. I don't want him to play in the NBA.
I am willing to risk my heart in falling in love again.

While typing this, I'm scared. OMG. Okay okay, as I've said I'm willing to risk it again.
Seventeen Mag had their last issue in April '09 with Leighton Meester as their cover girl. It's my favorite college magazine. I kept finding other alternatives and decided to stay with Chalk. Seventeen is still the BEST! Oh well, it's my last year in college I think I'll be fine. =)

Seventeen Mag (US) is too expensive. I can't afford it. =D

I posted my Seventeen mag collection (2008) in my blog just back read. Hehe.

I'll post my thoughts about my new found college mag. I haven't read it yet. Haha. =D
I got addicted to online forums 4 years ago until now. I've encountered a lot of members of every kind. Annoying, pasaway, flamebaiter and etc.

Here are my top 10 forum rules:

1. Read the forum rules.

2. Respect other people's opinion.

3. Don't be a flamebaiter. It just shows you are an attention-seeking person.

4. Do not quote a post if your reply isn't related to that post. What's the point?
Member 1: I see there a lot of newbies in this thread. Maybe they are taking a break from the CPA review exams.

Member 2 (quoted the post of member 1): The function of this thread is to let other people know where to review in the CPA exams.

*He quoted a post and his reply isn't related to it.

5. Don't use txtspeak.
Example: "wen" = when; "u"= you; "skol" = school

6. Always use the search button for an existing thread.

7. Don't cry your concerns in public (Meaning making a thread about it. Like why you are given an infraction and etc). Just personal message a moderator.

8. Don't post just for the sake of raising your post count. Result? Yeah, more post count but your posts are NONSENSE.

9. Don't create a "versus" thread. It will create flame among the members and there will be chaos unless that forum is strict about this rule. Like the mods constantly monitor the thread.

10. Don't be afraid to voice out your opinions as long as you know where you stand. =)

These are based on my experience being an online forum-er for almost 4 years. =)

Cheers! =)

Okay so I jumped in to the Gossip Girl bandwagon. At first, I really didn't care about the show until one of my friends lent me her dvd--- at last. First 2 episodes I got really hooked and excited. I liked Dan because he is funny and he's my type of guy among the GG guys. My excitement kind of went down as I watched the show. I can't help but compare my number 1 barkada TV show, One Tree Hill, to GG. After watching season 1 of GG, One Tree Hill is still on top of my list.

Here's what I thought of the show:
> Most of their characters are boring. I like Dan and Serena at first but they bored me. Super. Dan being funny kind of faded as the show progresses.

> Blair. I don't like her but sometimes I do. She's such a brat but on the brighter side, her character isn't boring.

> Nate. Hmmm. Hot guy but really boring. Ugh.

> Chuck. I don't find him handsome but same with Blair his character isn't boring. So, he's saved.

> RUFUS! The only HOT guy I sticked through out the show. I love Lily-Rufus loveteam.

> Jenny. Need I say more? Social- climber much but I liked her as Dan's lil sis.

> Serena and Blair's chemistry as BFFs isn't that convincing to me. Again, I can't help but compare them to One Tree Hill's Brooke and Peyton.

> All the "ka sosyalan" of the show kind of you know I don't know sickens me a bit. OTH is so much better. Peace out! =P

But still, I'd watch season 2.

EDIT: It just shows I wasn't hooked with this show. I didn't watch the rest of the seasons. LOL!
Cheers to all GG fans out there! =)

His profile is LOVE. =D

One of his best outfits.

Man, this season is so memorable to me. It was my first time that I fell in love --- 'fell in love' is an overstatement you think? LOL. Well, let's just say I was never a fan girl before of any celebrity. Anoop made me a fangirl BIGTIME! I did things I don't usually do especially in watching AI.

Talking about the finale. I was only excited for the finale because I got to see Anoop again! And then we only heard him sang like what 3 lines? Or to sum up all his performances maybe like 10? SUCKS! Lil got a duet with Queen Latifah and she's top 7. Dammit. >:(

On the brighter side, Anoop was smokin' HOT in the finale. Anoop in a suit in their introduction performance for Rod Stewart was smokin' HOOOOTTT! I just didn't like that he wore the OBB jacket again but still he was hot. LOL.

About the winner, well I was never a fan of Kris but I want to commend his humility. I wanted Adam to win! I just don't like Kris' style. Kris has been compared to Jason Mraz and I'm not a fan of Jason Mraz so there you go. =p Why I wanted Adam to win? Duh, if you've read my blog, you'll know. Okay, I can relate to Adam's genre, rock. I've been downloading his studio versions (and those were GREAT!) and I had no problem listening to it. If I'd listen to Kris' studio version, I'd probably fall asleep. LOL!

I just hate people saying "I don't like Adam coz he's gay". That's just SHALLOW.

Adam performing with Kiss and Queen? That was the BOMB! I think Kris was overshadowed by Adam during the Queen performance.

I'm gonna miss this. I hope next AI season I won't get attached to any Idol anymore. Hell, it's tiring espcially emotionally but in Anoop's case, it's all worth it. =)

I just want to commend Shangrila Mactan's service. Their service was really great. They are worthy of the label '5 star hotel'. The staff were really nice, friendly and approachable. Every time we passed by the lobby or anywhere else they always greet you with sincerity.

It was my second time at the Shang last Saturday thanks to my friend, Jazzy, she invited me and Jennifer. We stayed there whole day and had fun. I just wished all three of us did get to swim in the beach and in the pool. Jennifer didn't bring extra clothes while Jazz..well, girlyreasons. Haha. Our pictures were 300 plus! Gosh, we are vain. LOL! I was exhausted in uploading our pics. Haha.

I hope the next time I stay at the Shang it will be overnight.

I'm bored with this blogger template. The only thing I know about changing templates is the one that you just copy and paste the HTML codes but the ones that require downloads I don't know how. Yeah, download it and then what?

I will just keep it short and simple. It's too hard for me to rant and it gets me nowhere. Ranting, feeling mad, angry and etc just makes me feel worse. I'm sooo sad, affected, a little bit bitter, and other synonymous feelings about Anoop's elimination. He had three straight very good performance and now he's gone. [mura jd siyag namatay noh? LOL! ] Pero seriously I'm really sad. AI is fixed. How did I know that? Join online forums.

And ohhh, let me just say this, Anoop's scruffy look is soooooo HAWT! w00twave.gif Oh my, he looks sooo manly but I still want the geeky college guy Anoop.wub.gif Wait. I love the two looks. Which is which? *weighing with hands* Scruffy? Geeky? BOTH? Both!

I will definitely buy your album. Gawd, this is my first time. I you Anoop.
I first got addicted to online forums way back year 2007. That's when I joined http://www.istorya.net/forums/. Istorya.net is a bisaya forum that's why I am comfortable with the members here and I loved them. Once, the site didn't open I freaked out thinking 'what about the threads that I posted on?'. Nowadays this forum is getting boring, well for me. Not a lot of people post in the thread that I am active in. I just viewed all my post and I'm most active in the American Idol Season 8 thread (the only thread i look forward to everyday) but sadly most of the people who post there seems like not really a fan of the show or they are just casual viewers.

I just hope I'd find my way back to this forum like I always look forward to log in everyday. I missed the old times. Really. The other members who were my online buddies before don't log in anymore or they just lurk there or some were deadma already.

Istoryan members who are reading this blog ---- well, if there is anyone, don't get mad at me. It's just I'm not enjoying at the moment.

I reached my breaking point in surfing the net yesterday. I was bored and I didn't know what to do. How come I didn't thought of band searching. My last band addiction was The Killers and it was so long ago. I mentioned in my previous post that I'm having a One Tree Hill marathon ( can I just say that Peyton is such a biatch! hate her! ). This show features really great bands. Nada Surf, Feeder and Honorary Title to mention a few. I already knew these bands before but was too lazy to research and download their songs and some songs in my mp3 were boring ( so much for boredom this summer) me already. It kinda sucks since my mp3 has this small memory space (256 MB). I also did a little Purevolume-ing. Hehe.

I'm currently loving these bands:
> Nada Surf
- Always Love .... love this song
- See These Bones
- Beautiful Beat
- Here Goes Something

> Feeder
- Feeling A Moment
- Seven Days In The Sun ...currently what you are hearing while reading my blog
- Concrete Bed

> The Honorary Title
- Stuck At Sea
- Untouched And Intact

> Dashboard Confessional ...yeah. I just downloaded their songs just now. Did I mention I was too lazy to research and download?
- Don't Wait
- Rooftops and Invitations

> The Fray
- You Found Me
- Never Say Never
- How To Save A Life

> Rascal Flatts
- Life Is A Highway ... This song is in the Cars movie soundtrack and my 3 year old cousin loves that movie. He also loves to sing this song especially the all night long part. He pronounced it "ol nye looonnngg". So cute, I always smile whenever I hear that part.

> Katy Perry
- Thinking Of You
*haven't listened to the rest of the album yet.

My ears were hurting because of the headphones. I was listening to their albums for almost 3 hours.

Oh well, try listening to those bands too. They are great.
One thing I am excited about summer is that I can surf the net all day. Surf about Anoop for one. LOL.. But as of now, it is getting boring. Well, probably this has something to do with me being sooo anxious with my grades.

I also noticed I don't check my Friendster and Multiply account anymore. It's getting boring there too. I regularly visit my Twitter account. It gets boring there sometimes esp if the people that follows you don't know you personally.

Boring word count: 3

I was having a One Tree Hill Marathon season 1 awhile ago. I soooo love Nathan and Haley.
Some people really just don't care. Came 8:30 PM, I peeked into our neighborhood and still their lights were not turned off. I was having a One Tree Hill season 3 marathon and it was already 8:45 PM. I told my mom to switch off the lights. She asked me why? I told her it's Earth Hour. If we switch our lights off, it's like we did our part in helping Mother Earth. My mom and I had a lil fight that night so we were a lil bit bitter with each other. She had no idea what I was talking about but still I turned our lights off.
I should make this blog another Anoop blog. LOL. I loved his top 11 performance. His voice is just smooth and sexy with great falcettos. I find this week's performance better than last week. I was really smittened with his "oh baby baby". It's so sexy hearing Anoop sing this song. I kind of hated Matt a lil bit for singing Let's Get It On. That song should have been Anoop's. Anoop would have rock it. Listen to Anoop's version here. Just scroll down. http://www.anoopdog.com/2009/03/15/forget-lil-rounds-we-got-some-lil-noop/

Download their MP3 versions of their live performances here with my two other favorites Megan (she was horrible this week)and Adam (yes, he's one of my faves now).


Megan. Good luck listening to it but i guess the studio version is better.


Stay tuned for their studio versions. I'll posting it in my Anoopaholic blog. STUDIO VERSIONS ARE UP! http://anoopaholic.blogspot.com
Went to Mango (KTv lang ug gamay'ng inom) to forget about my final exams. I was with Stef, Adit, Vanity and her boyfriend, Maricar, Karren and Lovely. I felt better after.

Now I can surf the net whole day and hang out in idolforums.com to read some updates about Anoop. Hahah!
Just found this new --- well, probably not that new coz I saw this one in one of Anoop's fansite not so long ago so I made an account. It is a social networking site but a bit different to Friendster, Myspace, Facebook and etc. Your friends that follow you can read your updates every second while you are online. For example, you post what you are doing, how you are feeling, and etc. Pretty much you can talk anything under the sun on Twitter. It's like the things you post there are your updates on what's happening in every second of your life (if you are online of course..haha).

If you are done registering, don't hesitate to add me up.

I'm so crazy about him. It's madness but I'm loving it.
I really don't pay much attention to the lyrics of a song. I'm a music person. I pay attention first sa melody or beat sa song. The lyrics of Love Story by Taylor Swift caught my attention. I was singing along while holding a copy of the lyrics. As I sang along I was in love with the lyrics. Totally nice.

My fave part:

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Awwww. :D

He's so cute here. He's like a lil child. gosh!

Come on baby! Yeah. HOT! !:smitten:

Anoop is in. Oh my. I've got nothing much to say coz I'm speechless. Anoop's performance was hot! He got those girls in the studio screaming at him. I"m so in love with him. *fangirl mode* GOSH!

View his performance here:
