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."

Good News to the Sabungeros! Double Fun in the Big Dome.

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.

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.
