American 5: Naked Mile is the worst American Pie movie ever.. The legacy doesn't live on this movie... all you can see were boobs, boobs and more boobs.... They just reinvented some of the hilarious scene on the previous American Pie movies which is not fun at all....
Anyway, is good to see Jim's cool father again...

Pinsan: Akala ko bukas pa.. papalibre sana ako sa iyo pauwi...
Pinsan: Ayaw ko na dito.. lagi kaming nag-aaway ng aking asawa.. kahit siya ang mali.. lumalabas pa din na ako ang mali... Isinusumpa ko na dito... Pag nakaalis ako dito, parang nabunutan ako ng tinik...
Penoi: Pagpasensyahan mo kasi ang asawa mo..

Magaling talaga si House Minority leader, Congressman Francis Escudero... nakikita ko sa kanya na baka siya ang sumunod sa yapak ng namayapang si Sen. Raul Roco... bawat tanong niya... malaman... at mukhang nag-iingat sumagot ang Majority.. baka kasi maluto sila sa sarili nilang mantika...
kanya kanyang opinyon... kanya kanyang kagustuhan.. alam ba ninyo na isa sa gustong ipasok ng Majority ay aalisin ang term limit.... ibig sabihin, hanggat kayang tumakbo ng isang kandidato ay pede na, ayon dun sa revision...
kailangan ipaliwanag at sabi nga ni Congressman Francis Escudero, kailangan idaan ang lahat sa maayos na proseso at kailangan din na dumaan din siya sa isang public hearing... kung yun nga daw pagbabago ng pangalan street, dinadaan sa isang public hearing, ito pa kayang Saligang Batas natin...

Nakapanood ako noong Saturday ng Wowowee, nakita ko na madalas mainit ang ulo ni Willie Revillame, ewan ko lang kung napapansin nyo din na pinagagalitan on-air ni Willie Revillame ang mga staff niya kapag nakakagawa sila ng kamalian sa show. Huwag sanang dalhin sa show ang problema nila ni Liz Almoro. Yun lang.
Cooked instant Sisig. Kapit na kapit pa din ang anghang ng Sisig in Can. I will try other canned goods menu tomorrow.

Bagyong TyoPaeng Binayo ang Perlas ng Silangan | Holiday nga ba ang Oct 31 at Nov 2 | Ituloy AngSulong
Basang basa ako... oo basang basa ang pantalon at polo ko ngayon ng pumasok ako sa office.. Letch...
Watch the Satellite feed here.
Marami ang nalulungkot kasi hindi declared as holiday ang Oct 31 or ang Nov 2... Karamihan sa mga taga-probinsya na nagtratrabaho dito sa manila ay hindi na nagbabalak na umuwi...
Kung uuwi ako ito ang maaaring scenario
- hindi ako makakauwi bukas ng gabi at baka wala na din akong masakyan sa gabi dahil marami din ang uuwi.. traffic pa
- uwi ako ng madaling araw... balik din sa manila ng hapon... pagod ang katawan... traffic din
- naglinis na ako ng puntod ng tatay kahapon, pati na din ng sa lola ko...
- hindi na din naman whole day ang pagtigil ng pamilya ko sa sementeryo... hindi tulad ng ginagawa namin taon-taon...
ingatz na lang sa mga uuwi.....

What is the future of Google???? other search engines???? karamihan ng mga bloggers ngayon ay aware na sa search engine optimization.... for example, parang inaalagaan kang tamagochi... ang tamagochi mo ay yung keyword na kapag hinanap sa google ay ang unang lalabas ay ang site mo.... yan ngayon ang ginagawa ng mga bloggers, optimize nila ang site nila sa certain keywords...
hindi kaya dumating ang time na kapag nagsearch ka sa google ay puro blogs lang ang ibigay na result nito??? yung hinahanap mong information ay nasa pang-10 page result pa????
anyweiz, you can experiment on Google Website Optimizer....

Speaking of law, mukhang maganda ang laban ng kaso ni Willie Revillame at Liz Almoro. Si Atty Fortun kay Willie and si Atty Legarda naman kay Liz.

..."More important than WHAT is WHEN"
FATE it seems
is not without the sense of
Class Prophecy"Before Owen had the privilege to speak in front of many people at Cafe Antonia... He drink all the champagne in our table... Darn.... kaya bitin ako noong gabing yun eh...... "
Good evening everyone. Ito pong aking sasabihin eh magkasama na pong class history and class prophecy. Uso naman po kasi yung integration di ba? And since this is 2 in 1 medyo mahaba sya ng konti. Pero sabi nga ni Adam Sandler sa Wedding Singer "I have the microphone and you don't have, so you will listen to every word I'll say". And dun sa mga kaklase ko please stand up as your name is called. Thank You.It was January 8, 2011, sakay ako noon ng Air Canada patungong Manila as a surprised birthday gift for my fiancee. Wow kaysarap isipin na after 10 years, after 10 long years ay eto ako at muling babalik sa bayang pinagmulan ko. Para bang sandali lang ang sampung taon na ipinamalagi ko sa Vancouver. Ang natatandaan ko ay April 2001 dumating ang working visa namin ng tinatawag kong bayaw at sanggang-dikit sa guisado ng MGM, si Christopher Perez na sampung taon ko ring nakasama sa Canada at ngayon ay head na ng Production Engineering Staff ng Sun Microsystems which was based on Vancouver.
Here it is…
Palibhasa ay marami akong nainom na juice ng mag-stop-over ang eroplano sa Narita Airport Japan kaya medyo feel kong mag-CR. Nang lalabas na ako eh napansin ko sa di kalayuan ng CR na yun ang isang babaeng di naman katabaan. Nasabi ko tuloy sa sarili ko, "Pareng Owen, pag eto eh hindi si Cecil, ipapuputol ko ang tubig at kuryente ng kapitbahay ko". At pag-harap ng babaeng sinasabi ko ay di nga ako nagkamali. Sabi ko na nga ba. "Hoy Cecil, ikaw na ba yan?" ang halos pasigaw ko ng tanong. Maski nga sya eh nagulat din. Sabi nya, kumusta, I mean galing ka ring Toronto? Sabi ko hindi, sa Vancouver kako ako…Tapos nun eh walang katapusang kwentuhan. Sabi nya, naiba na ang apelyido nya. Syempre alam nyo na yun. You just don't have to make the things that are obvious be obviuos. And as a matter of fact, she got 2 children at galing sya sa Toronto kasi umattend sya ng training as representative of Amkor Anam Philippines where she work as Communications Specialist. Nakuwento nya rin na na-meet nya sa training sa Toronto sina Morlan who is working as Information Technology Senior Vice President of Philips Semiconductor based on Ontario at si Divina who's engaged in the same company as Sales Manager. And of course nabanggit nya ang "So very special someone of her life" who is now the Vice President for the Asia Pacific ng Intel. Does anyone here know Intel?
Nabanggit ko din sa kanya na tuloy ang e-mail ko sa mga classmates namin, tulad ni Pareng Ron who is now working as the Senior LAN Administrator ng isang multinational oil company sa Australia. Sabi ko nga eh nagkatotoo din ang pangarap ni Pareng Ron. Dagdag ko pa ke Kumareng Cez eh kako once na nagkasama kami ni Topher sa Business Solutions Group ng company eh nagpunta kami ng New York and actually we spent 5 days sa PAD ni Leoncio, and guess what kung anong trabaho nya. Leoncio is the Networking Consultant of Cisco Systems New York. Tapos dinalaw rin namin ang babaeng maraming alias pero superbait naming barkada, si Emmarie who is the Marketing Manager of EMC2 (the second best computer industry in the world) and is spending her life at New Jersey with Johnny and 3 children.
Nanghihinayang lang ako kasi masyadong napakabilis lumipas ng mga oras tsaka pagod na rin kaming magkwentuhan ni Mareng Cecil.
Pagbalik ko sa aking upuan ay naisipan kong humiram ng dyaryo sa flight attendant. Sabi ko, "Ma'am do you have any Filipino newspaper here except Abante or Bulgar? Nangiti sya sa akin. Mabuti naman at meron daw.
Ang maganda sa istorya ay ganire po. Headline pa lang ay eto na ang nabasa ko. Department of Communications and Information Technology Secetary launches a new e-commerce project. And guess who kung sino ang tinutukoy ko. Aba't walang iba kundi si Dideth. Tingnan mo nga naman ang nagagawa ng panahon at kung hindi dahil sa picture ay di ko sya mapapansin. At sino yung katabi nya - ah si Lovely - ang bagong appointed na Chief Director ng Telecom Training Institute. Sabi ko tuloy. "Ano ba yan masyadong nadominate ng taga-Pablo Borbon ang IT Department".
And as I turn the pages of that issue of Manila Bulletin, nagulat talaga ko. Imagine natupad din ang pangarap ni Sherwin - he is now the Systems Engineering Department Head ng PAGCOR. Natatandaan ko pa nung sabay kaming umuuwi galing sa iskwela na gusto nya raw maging Chairman ng PAGCOR na alam kong sooner or later will turn out to be real.
At habang patuloy kong binubuklat ang pahina ng dyaryo ay marami pa rin akong ikinagugulat- sa Technology Section ay mga pamilyar na pangalan ang nakikita ko. Noriel Gutierrez and Allan de Torres proposed another project on the RCBC IT Zone. Bale they are the Directors of the Internet Business Solutions Group ng IBM, Makati. Samantalang si Reynald (as an excellent student in Engineering Management subject) is working as the Customer Solutions Manager ng Fujitsu Philippines at si Topher M. is currently the Director for Alliance Department ng Hitachi Philippines based on Cabuyao, Laguna. At eto pa ang kung tutuusin ay sa angking ganda at talino ay di naman malayong mangyari. Nhicel has been the Chief Technology Officer ng Nokia for the last 4 years.
Nang mapagod ako ng kababasa ay naidlip ako sandali trying to bring back year 2001 - nung kami ay masyadong busy sa pag-aaral. Nariyan yung wala ng tulugan, wala ng liguan - maka-submit lang ng mga requirements. Dumating pa nga sa point na naghiga sa pathway ng iskwelahan sa sobrang puyat. Pero kung iisipin, yung mga pagsubok na iyon ang nagpatibay sa amin, yung mga pagsubok na iyon ang naging dahilan kung bakit kumikilos at nag-iisip kami bilang isa. I even remember the time na bago mag-exam ay nag-kakantahan pa kami. I'm sorry but I have to sing this part para ma-appreciate nyo. "Walang sinuman ang nabubuhay para sa sarili lamang". Dumating pa nga sa point na lilipat lahat ng iskwelahan kasi yung bilang namin na 39 ay more or less magiging 10 na lang. Mabuti na lang at marami pa ring mabubuting nilalang ang may malawak na pang-unawa and eventually ay nagligtas sa amin. And in behalf of my classmates I would like to thank all the people of Pablo Borbon (instructors, personnel's and students) for truly making PBMIT "our second home". At ipinangangako po ng klase na kailanman ay di namin kayo malilimutan.
O sya sya tama na Tito Aga!!! And by 10 minutes may boses na lumabas sa speaker , boses ng flight attendant na kausap ko kanina. Sabi nya, "Please fasten your seatbelt, we are now boarding NAIA International Airport. Wow grabe na. I mean yun pala ang feeling ng balikbayan. Yun bang parang sa pocketbook, yung ano, yung walang kahulilip na kaligayahan. Nasasabik tuloy akong makita ang mga kamag-anak ko, mga kaibigan, kumare, kumpare at iba pang mahal sa aking buhay.
And while waiting for my things at the baggage counter, I turned on my palmtop and tried to download mail messages. At since kanina pa ako ginugulat ng mga pangyayari ganito yata talaga pag-sinuswerte ka. Hindi lang sunod-sunod. Talagang sunod-sunod.
I've got a lot of new mail messages. On top is from a "Friend of Mine", and actually during our college years is the famous "Tia DELY" - Rachel who is now the new Management Information Systems Manager ng ASTEC Power Inc. sa Rosario, Cavite. And as I open the message, napangiti na naman ako. Kasi ibinabalita ni Rachel na si Mark na ang head doon ng Systems Support Engineering Group, samantalang ang butihin nitong maybahay na si Aby ang Head Operator ng AS-400 system. Sabi ko tuloy sa sarili ko - malamang si Pareng Rogam ang Senior LAN Admin o kaya ay Systems Engineer doon. Siguro nakahiyaan nya lang banggitin.
Then I tried to open my other mails, andun yung advertisement ng isang Corporate Account Technical Manager ng Ashwinsmail.com. At pag-kakita ko pa lang ng title alam ko nang kay Rhea ang site na yun. Sinong mag-aakala na ang site nya since college ay magiging e-commerce solutions site. Next na inopen kong mail ay galing kay Rose who is currently the MIS Director ng Shell Pilipinas. Biruin mong ang isa sa napakaraming me-ari ng cellphone na hiraman ko noong College eh magiging big-time pala.
After that eh sinalubong na ko sa Arrival Area ng sundo ko. To make the long story short pagdating ng Bauan, eh nagpadaan ako sa Immaculate Concepcion Parish Church. Bale I just wanna make a short visit in the Blessed Sacrament, the place kung saan kami nag-tatagpo ni Mark…At ni Abby din nga pala pag pumapasok kami.
Nang di sinasadya (palibahasa ay may jetlag pa) ay nasagi ko ang isang mamang naka-Polo barong. Sabi ko tuloy grabeng coincidence na ito ah. I mean kilala nyo na more or less ang tinutukoy ko. Sabi ko tuloy sa mama, "Father, I'm sorry po". At di nga ako nagkamali, he is the same person I'm calling as Father during my college days. Siya nga si Enrico - the current Director for Information Systems ng Archdiocese of Lipa. May ilang minuto din kaming kumustahan, tanungan at kwentuhan ng aming mga buhay hanggang sa tinanong nya ko kung bakit ko naisipang umuwi matapos ang napakahabang panahon. Ang sabi ko sa kanya, Father maybe there is really one point in your life when you want to be reunited with your old friends, with the people whom you spent at least 3-5 years of your life. Kaso lang kako at this point I'm afraid to organize a "class reunion". Alanganin kako kasi baka maging Class Reunion ng Mechanical Engineering yung party natin. (Biro lang po).
Tinanong ko sa kanya, "Father alam mo ba kung saan makokontak yung iba nating classmate. Then he enumerated some. Sabi nya, ang alam ko si Melanie is now on APC-Laguna - she is the Quality Control Department Head of American Power Conversion. Samantalang si Genovaive ay Communications and Network Engineer sa Lemery which is by this time a City. Then si Anabel ay Senior Analyst ng Software Research Group ng SMART Telecom sa Calamba. Ah ganon ba, sabi ko. Paano naman si Ycel, Meynard at si Ebeth?
Nagkwento na naman sya. Ganito yun pangulo, 4 years ago nag-converge ang mga power plant sa Batangas including NPC Calaca at First Gas sa Sta. Rita. And since si Ebeth ang pamilyar sa ins and outs sa mga power plant, eventually she became the Chief Information Officer of it. Si Meynard naman ay Technical Consultant na ng Globe Telecom ng Batangas.
Me kulang pa ba? Opo si Ycel nga - ang ipinagmamalaki ng CoE as "The Walking Frontpage and the Master of All Masters". Who would have thought that she would be the Owner-Developer of the No. 1 Internet Solution Firm in the country - ang MCB Online Services.
Gulat na gulat talaga ako. I mean it was more than just a coincidence. Nang walang anu-anoy may kamay na pumatong sa balikat ko. At unti-unting ang kaninay hawak lang ay yumuyugyug na. Paglingon ko ay si Andrew pala, ang superbait na technician ng PBMIT. Tapos sabi nya, "How, Owen aba'y isauli mo na daw kay Ka Rudy yung hiniram mong extension cord. Tulog ka ng tulog".
Sandali akong natulala. Para akong binuhusan ng malamig na tubig. Nang igala ko ang aking mga mata ay nalaman kong nasa LAB1 pala ako. Nakatulog na sa pag-I-internet.
At ang mga pangyayari kanina ay pulos panaginip lang. Kayganda namang panaginip non. Panaginip na kung maaari ay nais kong balik-balikan. At kung muling mamarapatin na mapanaginipan, gasgas man ang linya ay nais kong muling gamitin "Na kung ito'y isang panaginip ayaw ko ng magising pa".
Susmaryosep, panaginip pala lahat iyon. Parang totooo. Parang kanina ay abot-kamay ko lang. Pero kung nanaisin at pagsusumikapan, sa tulong ng ating naging matibay na pundasyon sa PBMIT, lahat ng pangarap natin sa buhay ay abot kamay din lang. Gaano man ito kahirap, gaano man ito kataas.
Let us just remember "More important than WHAT is WHEN" and "FATE it seems is not without the sense of IRONY". Alam ko pong alam nila yun kasi line yun from the class "favorite" movie THE MATRIX, di ba Ma'am Princess?
And at this point in time, I'd like to ask my classmates na sana after 10 years no matter what happen, no matter what it takes, we will be here in Café Antonia once again. I hope so. I really hope so.
Again, thank you very much and Good Evening."

The Philippines was hit real hard by typhoon Milenyo. Bad trip ika nga ang araw. Late ang suspension ng pasok ng private sector, maagang nag-announce na walang pasok ang gobyerno. Ika nga, kung sa barko, ang kapitan ang unang tumalon.
Im spending my night here in the office. If i go home, i will not be able to sleep because there's no electric power.If there's problem on our server, we will be the standby support. Good thing my boss brought her TV here. Watching Oprah on Studio 23. heheheeh.
Its my last day tomorrow in the office. Mag-iimpake ng mga basura ko dito sa office. Two years din ako dito. Sana good ang bago kong work. New challenges.

The kids were so happy to see Saladin. The castle, Juno's house, the Liwasan, etc. Bad thing was that Fantasy World looks so real and amazing 5 years ago. It looks like Fantasy World have problems on their infrastructure. Unfinished paintings, broken windows/chairs/doors/roofs, unfinished rides, not so amazing gardens, etc. are only few things that i've noticed.
If you are not a member of Fantasy World they will collect P1000 per 10 persons as an entrace fee. Bad thing Majika will end soon.
No pictures??? sorry, i forgot to bring my camera... shhhessshhhhh....

I am Barrister Ken Dominic an advocate and Solicitor.
I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Fredrick Perez ,
a foreigner who used to work with European Development
Company in Nigeria. On The 21st of April 2002, my
client, his wife and their three children were
involved in a car accident along Sagbama Express Road.
All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost
Since then I have made several enquiries to his
embassy to see if I can locate any of my clients extended
relatives, this has all the while proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I
decided to trace his relatives (i.e. Same surname)
over the Internet, to locate any member of his family
but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I have contacted
you to assist in repatriating the money left
behind by my client before it is confiscated
by the Finance Firm where this money was deposited.
Particularly, the Finance firm where the deceased
had the money deposited (7.3 million dollars) has
issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the
deceased or have the money confiscated within the next
ten official working days. Since I have been
unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2
years now I seek your consent to present you as
the next of kin of the deceased since you are still a
foreigner, so that the proceeds of claim of this
deposit valued at $7.3 million USD would be release
to you and then you and I can share the money, 60% to me
and 35% to you, while 5% should be for expenses or tax
as your government may require. I have all necessary
legal information that can be used to back up
any claim we may make.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable
us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please get in touch with me by email or call my
tel number stated above to
enable us discuss further.
Mr. Ken Dominic ( Esq)

Country, will be one year (EarthTime) in Heaven, Let us remember him without
fanfare and/or fireworks, instead, Let it be a day of Prayer, Let us offer
masses on that day in our parishes and ask our priest friends if they can
mention his name so others will remember how much he loved and served us
with the gift of his life.
Please help multiply this remembering RSR prayer brigade by passing this
