11th Megabalikbayan OFW Expo (MBOX) will be happening this December 18-20, 2014 at SMX Convention Center.

Christmas At The Vatican

In all the department stores that I came across, it is always  the Landmark that has these different motifs.

This month, and for the obvious reason, The Landmark presents CHRISTMAS AT THE VATICAN.

Christmas At The Park

Street kids only get this treat once a year. Christmas at Rizal Park... decent programs for kids at the Park Auditorium, free face painting, ice cream.

This year’s theme is a reminder of the love and passion that started and sustained 20 years of taking to the streets for the recognition and respect of LGBT lives as human lives. It’s also a celebration of and an invitation for families, friends, and supporters of LGBT people to claim Metro Manila Pride as a safe space to voice their support for the community, for the LGBT human rights advocacy, and for the people they love and march with every year.

OPM Music vs. Trashy Noise

Let’s face it. There’s a big difference between music and trashy noise and… Ok, so you might think I just hate Filipino music, but no. I’m just expressing what I feel. This is my blog, remember?

Bonsai, Penjing and Suiseki - What's that?

I recently went to the opening of the "Festival of Bonsai, Cactus and Ikenobo" here in Quezon City Memorial Circle. They have great displays. Better believe it! I like 'em, however Ok, to let you know, I'm a little bit ignorant when it comes to bonsai - and what are these Sueseki and Penjing?

In all honesty, I would put every one of them in one basket: Midget trees with Japanese and Chinese touch...

Good thing I did some research.

Early Christmas in Cubao

Do you know that Filipino celebrate Christmas very early?

Yeah, Christmas starts here on September. We call them as the "-ber months" (September, October, November and December) and usually Christmas ends here on February - after the Chinese New Year.

Be careful, there are leeches crawling in "Bloggerland."

As a Blogger, I would like to warn my co-bloggers. Stay away from people who have a gruesome reputation of being a leech, a blood-sucker.

Most wannabe politicians, fame whores, and those "starving from recognition" that they don't really deserve fall in this criteria. So better watch out or you may be surprised that you're getting expired products in your loot bags. 

Not going to the Komikon tomorrow.

Bukas na nga pala ang Komikon 2014 and it will be held at Bayanihan Center in Pioneer, Pasig. Oh, and don't forget the entrance fee of P100.00

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend since I will be stuck on my work... *hikbi* ... but still hoping you guys to have a swell time.

It's really not a total lost on my side. Not really into comics myself. I only got few copies and frankly, I'm not into those so-called "indie comics."

Slasher Cup, Stags... cock fights? This article will make a lot of sabungeros happy. 
I just attended a press conference here on Smart- Araneta Coliseum and it has something to do with cock fighting. The 2015 International Gamefowl Festival is now the "official gamefowl expo" of the World Slasher Cup - regarded as the "Olympics of Cockfighting" and undoubtedly, the most prestigious cockfighting event in the world.

Remember Yolanda

Typhoon Yolanda [Haiyan], was one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, which devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, on November 8, 2013. It is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 6,300 people in that country alone.Yolanda is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed. As of January 2014, bodies were still being found.

La Loma Catholic Cemetery - Of Stones, Graves and More of History

Campo Santo de Laloma or the La Loma Cemetery is a Catholic Cemetery here in Manila. It is surrounded by 2 other cemeteries: The Manila Chinese Cemetery and the Manila North Cemetery.

The place (with an area of slightly less than 54 hectares (130 acres) was once a hill, that is why it is called La Loma, and a certain Franciscan friar named Fr. Francisco Caviedas was responsible for creating this cemetery in 1884. It is said to be the oldest cemetery here in Manila. It was once known as Cementerio de Binondo (Binondo Cemetery) as the area was then under the jurisdiction of Santa Cruz during the Spanish Colonial Period.

This is a late post. I dunno…. Maybe I still think that blogging is more of a diary, a web log than something like a TV commercial. Maybe because I don’t have the feel of promoting hotels, food, establishments - but what the heck. Times have changed.

Ok, it was almost 7PM when me and my friends arrived on SM Aura @ Bonifacio Global in Taguig so I guess the fun was almost over. No more loot bags hahaha! Most of the early birds have already grabbed them by that time.

Manila Chinese Cemetery... It's not just a cemetery, its history. (Part 3)

Maybe you're wondering why the Chinese placed those colored paper and those delicious foods on the grave of their departed - Oh come on, that's not just about decorations and it's not just about being festive.

When we were there last week, I already saw a lot of Chinese families placing food and colored papers on top of the tombs. According to their customs, traditions and beliefs - the colored paper represents roof tiles. They believe that the tomb is a metaphor of a house and the tombstones are the doorways.

Manila Chinese Cemetery... It's not just a cemetery, its history. (Part 2)

Looking at these different Chinese graves and mausoleum, one can just marvel on the different architectural structures, from this old “turtle shape grave,” to some classical pagodas, art decos and some modern ones.

Speaking of these turtle shape graves (AKA Turtle-back tombs or turtle shell tombs), the main purpose of the horseshoe-shaped shaped ridge surrounding the tomb is to substitute for a range of a hill ridge which, according to the principles of Feng Shui, needs to protect the grave from the "noxious winds" from the three.  Also, turtles are known to have long life, therefore a turtle-shaped grave brings long life to the surviving dependents. Turtles also symbolize the universe in Chinese mythology.

Manila Chinese Cemetery... It's not just a cemetery, its history. (Part 1)

Last week I got to tour 3 of the famous cemeteries here in Manila: The Manila Chinese Cemetery, Manila North Cemetery and La Loma Catholic Cemetery. [ A special thanks to Mr. Rence Chan and his Walk With Chan's Spooktacular Tour. ]

Ok... so I begin with the Manila Chinese Cemetery. 

Chinese cemetery, Now maybe you're wondering why a separate cemetery for the Chinese? 

The 54-hectare cemetery was created in 1879 as a burial site for Chinese citizens that were denied burial on cemeteries run by the Roman Catholics during the Spanish period. If you will remember your Noli Mi Tángere, there was this scene where Father Damaso ordered Don Rafael Ibarra's corpse be moved to the Chinese cemetery, Right?

Los Banos Blues

Last October 12, I accompanied my friend to Los Banos, Laguna to see a garden show. Ok, now to tell you the truth, this is my first time I visited UP Los Banos, so I guess I was a little bit excited about the trip, and second... last time that I went to Cavinti, Laguna, I wasn't able to buy a box of Laguna's famous buko pie, so I was thinking that since I'm already here in Laguna, maybe I can buy one.

Speaking of buko pie, a lot of people seem to wonder why the sudden rise of price? It was only P160.00 per box, but now it is almost P200.00. Wow!

AgriLink 2014 - The event for your agri needs.

They say that this event is one of those who really fill up the whole World Trade Center here in Manila, and by the looks of it – that might be true.  Last October 9,  I went to see what’s happening in AgriLink 2014.

AgriLink is an agricultural fair, which focuses on what’s new in the agriculture, fish and food industry. It showcases the newest and what’s trending in animal breeding, machinery and equipment, animal health and nutrition, aquaculture, grains, organic farming, horticulture, among others.

AgriLink is organized by the Foundation for Resource Linkage & Development, annually in October. From its first show in 1994, it is quickly bacame the Philippine's largest annual international agribusiness event, attracting hundreds of exhibitors and the highest number of visitors. A good number of foreign or international companies from France, China, Korea, USA, Germany, Thailand, Netherlands and other Asian countries were among the exhibitors.

For more pictures of the event...

In the Philippines, election is such a laugh.

You already know about the game "Dumb Ways to Die" huh? Well, this is a new version. It is a parody created by Metro Trains Australia. Philippine election parody... hmm, well what can I say? The whole Philippine election is a big parody anyway.

2016 is coming so prepare to see old and new clowns doing the same old boring routine.

Shoot 'em! Kill 'em ALL! [@ Outbreak Assault]

It started as a Facebook dare, which ended in one of my awesome experience to date!

It wasn’t even planned, but I guess it has something to do with this so-called “macho thing” hehehe! Anyway, so I purchased two bookings for me and my good friend Mr. Dennis Dy Ko.

So off we went to attend this “Outbreak Assault.” I really don’t know what to expect. Maybe because I’m fat and I can’t run that fast. OH MY!!! THE ZOMBIES GONNA EAT ME!!!

Collecticon 2014 - Got a little bored when I was there last time.

Frankly, I got a little bored at Collecticon 2014. *sigh* They used to have this event on Robinson's Place Ermita, so I was wondering why are they having it now here in SM Megamall? (Someone suggested it has something to do with a mooncake festival). 

Anyway, I paid P100.00 for the entrance, and... 
Ok,  maybe I'm not more into Gundam model kits and I didn't find any ToyBiz 1/6 Gandalf figure (bummer!). It is not as big as those other toys and collection conventions, so why should I expect too much?

They seem to be promoting Doraemon. Yup, they got a Doraemon collection booth, which is almost facing the entrance. There was also a contest (I think) of building a Gundam model and some lectures on how to paint your Gundam model. Cosplayers, comics artists, pre-painted figures and 1/6 figure conversions, kits, spare parts…

Ok, I got some pictures of the event so just check it out yourself.

Saturday, October 4, 2014


So you thought that October is just all about beer huh? By virtue of Proclamation No. 798, s. 1991, all museums and galleries here in the Philippines will be doing a lot of activities to promote heritage, and promote a climate of free artistic and intellectual expression.

Museums, galleries? Is that boring?

No, and as a matter of fact, I will give you the list of museum “where to go” here in Manila area. In fact, there are a lot of museums and galleries here around Metro Manila in which you might even never heard of.  Some of these museums are free and others require you to pay an entrance fee.

"Before There's a "WE" There's a "ME" - A small book about self-love.

First of all I will be a little bit honest about this. I am an atheist, and frankly, it will be quite a challenge for me to do a review on Ms. Ilsa B. Reyes book. Reviews must be honest and nothing will be more honest than an atheist reviewing a devotional book about God. So, I hope I will do justice to this book and to Ms. Reyes. Now this will be a unique experience for me and for Ms. Reyes. It's my first time as an atheist to review a book about God and I think Ms. Ilsa will have the same experience reading a review from a man who don't believe in God.

Useless begins with "U."

Picture  taken from the Internet
The problem with some people is that they just love to talk and they never set their priorities straight.

Ok, so you know a lot of things, you can type perfect English on social forums like Facebook and Google+, you almost read all the books in this world – Then what?

That’s the problem. There are so many “know it all” yet not one have been bold enough to go out in the front line and let his action do the walking instead of his fingers. So what’s the merit of your ideas?

Ok, so you claim to know everything there is to know, you talk about how to save the Philippine economy, for example, yet as a friend has told me, you still live in the comforts of your house, with your Mom and Dad. Now how on this frigging world will I accept your braggadocio if you’re still not even a part of the workforce? You don't even pay tax!

Then what? Groups… oh yes, the never ending groups – and the purpose of your group? What is it for? Ah ok… nice. Geezzz! It’s a fucking sorority for Christ sake! It’s just a "groupy full of losers!"
What’s your social relevance? Why does it exist in the first place? What’s your role and what are the benefits you’re going to offer society in terms of education, economy, aesthetics... Give me a break!

So before you boast your group’s accomplishments, see to it first if it's worth anything. You see, you may say that your group has an accomplishment, but please bear in mind that accomplishments are big, significant achievements, not just petty ego-boosters for jerks.

What happened with the mami?

I bet if Mr. Ma Mon Luk saw his restaurant and tasted his mami, he'll be crying in his grave. 

Known to be the guy who popularized the mami, Ma Mon Luk was said to be the person who made the lowly "gupit" into this comfort food that we now love (from the word Ma = Manok and Mi= Miki) and established this restaurant in Quiapo, Manila which still bears his name. The place is iconic, but…

I went there to taste a little bit of history, but was a bit surprised and disappointed. The place is a little bit shabby, MY GOLLY! The waiters are not even wiping the tables dry. The kitchen seems to be a little dirty and to my dismay, the famous mami seems to be using old chicken stock. It doesn't even taste fresh.

Hayz! So much with heritage and being the pioneer. With all the new establishments, all contending to be the most delicious mami, there will be a lot of competition and with this kind of service and product, the famous Ma Mon Luk will be out of the race and business in no time. 

Please, whoever is in-charge with the restaurant, let Ma Mon Luk’s legacy live on and take good care of his restaurant.

Is this a "fashion show" or a good excuse to be a sexist pig?

The Naked Truth...

I just got this news from the Internet and it said here...

                                                                                             Photo from Facebook

Ok... artistic. Artistic?

Now, in another part of the world, Ms. Emma Watson is now speaking about gender equality, but here in the Philippines, a certain clothing line is advocating garbage on its underwear fashion show.

This is the most blatant display of sexist bullshit I ever saw in my entire life. My golly! It's advocating the idea that men are masters and women are just his pet. What? That is so medieval. Who's the screw-up person that created this idea and has the nerve to show this crap in a fashion show? Napakatindi suguro ng galit nito sa babae? 

Does Bench advocate such idea of sexist crap?

It's a fashion show for Christ sake! It's is supposed to be about the line of clothing. Let's forget all the lewdness of men in skimpy underpants touching and presenting their precious "cargo" to the sexually enticed viewers, but to be a sexist bigot jerk? That's crossing the line and it's so cheap. 

That makes a big difference between being classy from being crappy.

Books! Books! Books!... Uh, sort of.

I attended the 35th Manila International Book Fair. Every year we have this "book fair" here in Manila so it's not a big deal, but I think it's getting a little stale and boring.

So, for started, the book fair - I paid  P20.00 as an entrance fee and then… National Bookstore? Fully Booked? I can enter those stores anytime without paying any fees, right? So where’s the logic there? Anyway, the claim is that you can buy books at a bargain price compare to those you buy outside the fair.

World on a String

Friday, September 19, 2014

Just my random thoughts… (September 19 @ 6:45PM)

Ok, so it’s a rainy day (… since last night) and most places in Metro Manila are flooded. My Facebook wall is now full of news about the flood, which is really not news since every time there’s rain, there’s flood waters – as if I’m waiting for Noah’s ark to pass by.

Anyway, not really much news since I just stayed home a did a lot of reading and writing… articles, personal stuff, things like that. I didn’t watch cable TV since I’m not in the mood. So I guess a rainy Friday does make someone gloomy huh?

Nothing interesting here in Facebook, uh… I don’t know. The day still hasn’t ended yet so I may wait a while to see if something interesting comes up.

What else is new? Someone posted pictures of this Jamich thing. Jamich – sounds like a brand of designer’s bag or something. I don’t know – I don’t watch them on YouTube. I prefer full documentary shows and my family always watch “spaghetti westerns” so I guess I’m not really paying too much attention about this Jamich thing.

Some friends are challenging me to place a strainer on top of my head. Wait, I’m not a Pastafarian, so why should I place a strainer on my head? I never even use a Jewish kippah nor a fez,  so why a strainer?

Last month, we heard of news concerning 2 artists; one, a famous comedian committed suicide in his house and the second, a known local drama actress/singer who have apologized to her fans because she said she let herself become out of shape due to depression.

So what is depression?
Now, don’t think that depression is just a state of being “emo.” Likewise, some people seem to think depression can be triggered by something that happened in your life – lost of loved one, death in the family, financial lost. No, depression can be triggered anytime without any provocation and without proper medical consultation and therapy, it can be dangerous.
There are times when we feel a little sadness, loneliness in life, but that is not depression. Depression is a feeling of intense sadness, helpless, hopeless, and worthless – that may last for many days, weeks and even years and it keep you from functioning normally.  

It is said that women are less affected by depression due to the fact that women can easily express their sadness, while men who are more secretive about their feelings due to the issue about the “macho thing” can become depressive for years. Men are less likely than women to acknowledge feelings of self-loathing and hopelessness. Instead, they hide it and may just complain about fatigue, irritability, sleep problems, and loss of interest in work and hobbies. Yet still, women are more susceptible of depression compared with men because of natural hormonal factors, particularly when it comes to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), postpartum depression, and perimenopausal depression. 

Teen depression is more of an irritability than a depression. A depressed teenager may be hostile, grumpy, or easily lose his or her temper. Unexplained aches and pains are also common symptoms of depression in young people and it left untreated, it may lead to problems at home and school, drug abuse, self-loathing and even tragedy such as homicidal violence or suicide. Older adults tend to complain more about the physical rather than the emotional signs and symptoms of depression, and so the problem often goes unrecognized. Depression in older people is associated with poor health, a high mortality rate, and an increased risk of suicide, so diagnosis and treatment are extremely important. 

Depression can also be triggered by hypertension (high blood), obesity, alcoholism, mood altering drugs,  or a lazy lifestyle.

So how can you tell if someone is suffering from depression?
The first sign of depression is a sudden changed outlook in life. Suddenly, your cheerful friend becomes pessimistic about everything. He may become very irritable and may become very unfocused in his work, on making decisions, or may have a hard time remembering things. 

There can also be some physical changes like he may gain or loss weight, may start to look older than his age and he may suffer from insomnia or oversleeping. Depression can cause suicide. The profound misery and sadness that goes with depression can make suicide  like the best way to escape the ache. Contemplations of death or suicide are the dangerous side effect of depression and without proper management this feeling of utter helplessness can lead a person to self-destruction.

So what can we do?
One of the effective methods when facing depression is learning how to talk. Try reaching out to others. Communicate with loved ones, and tell them your problems, or whatever’s bothering you. Learn how to express your emotion and don’t clam up. Now, if it's your loved one who is suffering depression, make sure that you make communication open. Try to talk to him and break his silence.

Stay active. You will also be surprised to know that exercise can do much to help. Exercise regularly since it will not only make you healthy, but regular exercise can also boost your mood. A 15 minute regular exercise routine can reduce the physical symptoms of depression.

Try to have a sense of purpose in life. People who have life goals tend to live much longer.  Try not living your life in a daily, boring routine. Have some social activity once in a while. Volunteer, join some active clubs and groups or travel if you can. Also, try having a break in your daily work – travel, explore. Finding activities you enjoy that give you a sense of purpose is a surefire way to improve your mood and reduce your risk of depression.

Pet Show in Quezon City Circle

Other than the orchid show, the Philippine Orchids Society  also have a pet show last September 6 to 7, 2014 held at the Hardin ng mga Bulaklak in Quezon Memorial Circle. There were also some free lectures all week.

It was public voting. A Chow-chow won as the Most Desirable Pet, Cutest Pet and a Cockatoo won the Best Pet in the Show.

Even Bei-Ling (my Pekingese) was there to watch the show. 

Frankly, I was a little disappointed in this event since nothing really special has caught my fancy. Being a pet enthusiast myself, I was thinking of something more exciting than the usual snakes, frogs, birds, lizards and dogs. No inverts, no exotics, scorpions, spiders... not even fancy mammals like hedgehogs, sugar gliders and even a pot bellied pig.

Not even a  lot of dog breeds. 

Maybe someday, the organizers should prepare the pet show, since they included it on their orchid show, they should also make it as interesting as the former.

Facts and Fictions in Fertilizing Orchids

Now you just brought some orchids for your house and they're your pride and joy. Large flowers, beautiful set of leaves. You gave them the care you thought they deserve. That's right, you have heard some so-called “tips” on how to fertilize your orchids. “I saw some articles on the Internet, Hey! My grandmother does this, my mother does that, so why will it not be effective?” Then, after just a few months, your orchids are dying, pest and disease has taken its toll. What the hell just happened?

We have been doing a lot of things in orchid cultivation, and propagation that we thought to be Ok, something that we have learned by words of mouth, or by tradition that may, instead of doing good, may even harm our plant. This article is about some of those myths concerning the traditional method of fertilizing an orchid, the harm that it does.

Bread and Tradition at Kamuning Bakery

Filipinos are known for its tradition, but sadly there are quite very few historic places that survived. When  I say "historic," what I mean are places that can be considered quite old. Well, it really doesn't need to be a place where the Katipuneros ate their meals... but take this bakery as a good example.

Located in a street in Kamuning, Quezon City is a bakery that is three years younger to the Philippine Commonwealth and just imagine, in that time "Wizard of Oz" just had its premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Welcome to Kamuning Bakery.

The REACH University Party Night

It was a party night last August 29 at the Library in Metrowalk, Pasig City when the staffs, sponsors, and guests celebrated REACH Magazine’s survival issue. Good food and great performances of song and dances, and what makes the party more exciting was when the lovely candidates of Ms. Tourism World Philippines were also there.

Yet, there’s more! Raffles were held and the top prizes were one digital camera and Wow! An all-expense paid Boracay showcase good for two.

Going Around in Circles in Quezon City Memorial Circle

[Wile E. Cayote is a trademark of Warner Brothers.]
I got lost in QC Memorial Circle because WOW! Because their security guards don't know where to find places - as if you asked them where this and that is and they will just point you in all goddamn directions around the park. 

I was looking for this Urban Garden, so I asked the nearest security guard where can I find it. So, he pointed me in a certain direction and I went there. Sadly, the said urban garder was not there. So I asked another security and he pointed me in another direction. Again, the said garden was not there - And I ask another security guard, the janitors, people around the park, till I almost  toured the whole GODDAMN PARK!

So, in the end of this useless effort, I met my friends holding free plants that they got in the garden, while I almost toured the whole park, getting nothing but a bad case of MUDDY AND SOAR FEET.

The best thing to do? Go home and sleep. Nothing a good sleep can't fix... while cursing the whole park in your dreams. 


My friend Rence Chan always says that a group must stay focused. That's right, 
F O C U S....

Now what happened if you're out of focus?

Well, it becomes fuzzy. The moment that a group became out of focused, you will never even distinguished the group's goals. Mission and Vision remember? Now, if the vision becomes blurry, the groups main reason for existing becomes questionable and indistinguishable.

I also say that not only in groups, but this also apply to you as a person. If you become out of focus, what happened? What happened to your goals, your dreams? 

Also, by focusing on something, you become an expert in something that really fits your life. Hey? Are you a "Jack of all trades, master of none?"

You have to have your own market, your own "niche market." That will make you an interesting fellow. Yes, knowing a lot of things can be good, especially if that is your forte, but please never pretend something that you are not. If that is not your field of expertise, then don't try to fool yourself. You don't belong there. Find something that you really like by heart - that's where you come in.

So again, stay focused.
