Summer Simang

Wow! Everybody seems to be going out of town since the Holy Week. I'm a boring guy when summer comes. Usually, I'd rather stay home than go out and soak myself in my own sweat under the hot sun. I do love taking pictures of places I've been to. Last summer, when my family and I went to the beach, something we don't usually do, I have more pictures of the scenery than people. I remember when I was a little younger, the family would always go out of town every summer. Overnight swimmings are regular and we would often find ourselves in the Triple B provinces of Bulacan, Baguio or Bicol. But after experiencing typhoon Rosing last... what, '96? I swore never to return to that place again... actually, it's not the place, its the long rides I hate. The agony of sitting in one place for 5-10 hours, it's torture for me. Sweat and waiting, two of my most hated things in this world. Sleeping in the morning's don't help either. I'd go to sleep at around 7am after a night of work, and internet. Then when 11am comes, I would have unloaded half my body weight on my bed through sweat. Luckily, at night, my room is always cool without even turning on the AC, it's the ninth mystery of the world, I tell you.

I am a year older today.

I consider myself lucky to be part of this generation. Technology, its evolution of mobile phones, digital cameras, computers, appliances, games and movies, we were all able to experience these. And I consider myself some sort of a tech nut. But watching the Gospel of Judas the other day made me think, do children know the stories of Jesus? The Gospels? Children nowadays did not have the chance to watch 2 programs that greatly influenced our generations' knowledge of the Gospels. Superbook and Flying House. Lets admit that we'd rather watch these shows than listen to our boring teachers. Now, it's up to the children's parents to tell them the stories of Christ. I wish they'd come out with a DVD set of these 2 shows. And during that time, influencial cartoon shows flourished: Thundercats, Transformers, GI Joe, Visionaries, SilverHawks, TigerSharks, Smurfs, even Rainbow Brite. Today, I can't remember feeling bliss watching any cartoon shows. It's probably age. I was young then. But looking at current trends in movies, with the announcement of Transformers, must mean that those shows were really a great influence on the minds of children back then.

What's up with Spam Mails lately?! When I first noticed the amount of crap on my Spam folder, I decided not to erase them just to see. And some even get to my Inbox. This is really annoying. (The pic shows the amount of Spam I got in just 3 days. Not including the ones I got in my inbox)

It's Back!

Jollibee's Amazing Aloha burger is back! It's like seeing an old friend again! Loved this when it came out years ago. Now it's back, but suffering from price cuts, etc... like the regular bun instead of the sesame bun it used to have years ago. Still, I'm happy.
Have you ever tried watching movies at SM?! They have newly renovated theaters, on the outside, they look good, but wait til you watch the movies inside! They're CRAP! The screens are too small and blurry, and the sounds, unbelievably bad! The dialogue echoes through the moviehouse... you'll find it hard to comprehend whats being said. And what's worse? A ticket costs P110/130!!! CRAP! Go to Gateway, Greenhills or Robinson's theaters instead.

Update! Update!

You might be asking if this is my PC... and the answer is a big, unfortunate NO. I found this Order 66/501st Trooper case mod by Smooth Creations while browsing the internet( But it sure is a cool paintjob on an Alienware system. Maybe someday, If I find the courage to actually modify my Shuttle XPC, I could have one like this, Vader perhaps.
I've been pretty busy lately with pages and everything is going well. As for DVD updates, my Firefly box set arrived 2 weeks ago and it was worth it. For things not really worth its price, we have King Kong DVD. I know I said I don't like the film but still, it is eye candy and a must-have to any dvd collection. The local release has bad packaging and sent some collectors airing their disappointment in a local dvd forum. Luckily, the reservation caomes with a free dvd of your choice, and I chose Shrek 2. At the end of the day, I guess it wasn't a total waste. I'll post some pics as soon as my camera comes back.
My barkada is composed of friends from high school. We regularly talk to each other either through text, phone or YM. 2 of them, this week lost their phones. One, while going home from the province where he works, it was one of the rare times he didn't use his car and rode a bus home. 6 people announced a holdup, guns in their hands. Along with his celphone, they got my friend's wallet, credit cards, IDs. Another friend of mine lost his celphone in the LRT. It was tucked in his bag pocket and perhaps, while he was getting out of the LRT car, it got snatched by skillful magnas. I too have been a victim of these inconsiderate people. If they need money, why don;t they just find a decent work instead of taking other people's money and things that they have obviously worked hard for?! We are taking public transportations so that means were not rich, everything we have, we earned it by working our asses off. So please... be considerate! Man, as if they could hear my pleas... they probably don't even know how to turn on a pc. Well, I have been very cautious and observant since then. If you see a suspicious looking group of men (and sometimes women) with bags, leave at once.
