Dvd Marathon

Cousin Ichan went to visit us yesterday to spend his weekend vacation with us. We grabbed that opportunity to watch our favorite movies together. Yup! We had dvd marathon yesterday and we were able to watch 5 films consecutively. Good thing mom is too busy with her Tamales business and she failed to notice that we've been watching tv for more than 10 hours straight. What are the movies that we have watched? Well, Ichan is a big fan of Japanese Anime so 2 out of the five movies we’ve watched are anime which includes Hell Girl and Death Note. Hell Girl is a compilation of self contained short stories, focusing on the existence of a website that allows people to take revenge by sending them in Hell. Death Note on the other hand is a story of a young boy who found a Death Note, a notebook that allows you to write name of the person that you want to die. The moment you wrote the name, the person will suffered and die immediately. Both of these anime movies are simply fantastic.
Well, we failed to catch some new movies in theaters so we’re very thankful that we can still watch them through dvd. In fact, I feel more comfortable watching them at home because I feel more relax and I don’t have to worry about what clothes to wear. Anyway, the rest of the movies are Resident Evil: Afterlife, Flipped, and My Girl. I am a big Resident Evil fan and I never missed any installment in both game and film series. I don’t mind watching this film over and over again and besides, Milla Jovovich did well in portraying her role as Alice. Flipped is a love story about Bryce and Juli Baker. If you’re missing those “love-hate” relationship in the movies, then Flipped is a movie that is worth watching for. My Girl is actually my favorite film of all time. It is a 1991 film top billed by Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin. I just love this film and it really brought me to tears. Good thing mom was able to find a Dvd copy of it. Anyway, we’re looking forward to some new dvd releases for this month. I guess it calls for another dvd marathon with Ichan huh? Haha. Have a great day guys and happy blogging.

I'm Part of the Team!!

Okay, you know guys that I am not that athletic type of guy. i don't even pay too much attention in the latest sport happenings that's why it's kinda rare to me to buzz something about sports in my blogs. Well, today is kinda special. Believe it or not, i will be joining our University team to compete for a sport competition. Yup! You heard that right. However, it's not the typical type of sports. No it's not basketball nor Soccer. The sport that i will be joining at is called Sepak Takraw. It is a native sport originated in Malaysia and is also known as Kick Volleyball. Well, it means that i will be kinda busy this following weeks before i have to practice so badly in order to prove to my friends that i can be good in something other playing video games. Well, speaking of video games, i just played Final Fantasy Dissidia yesterday and was able to finish the game in no time hahaha. So i guess they are pretty right about me when they say that i am really good in video gaming huh? I guess i won't be playing any video games these following weeks because of my upcoming game since they consume a lot of time and may ruin my schedule but i guess i can still play some Online gambling games since they do not take a lot of time in playing. Especially now that i discovered a cool casino site yesterday while I'm surfing the web. The site is like a database of all the reliable online casinos on the web and it also provides casino reviews to serve as your guide. Anyway, tomorrow is Sunday and I am scheduled to have a practice with my taem mate. (Whew! I can't believe i am saying these words Should i be very proud of it? haha)

Grammy Song Of the Year 1999

"My Heart Will Go On" is the theme song of the 1997 blockbuster film Titanic. With music by James Horner, lyrics by Will Jennings, and production by Walter Afanasieff, it was recorded by Céline Dion. Originally released in 1997 on Dion's album Let's Talk About Love, it went to number 1 all over the world, including the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. My Heart Will Go On was released in Australia and Germany on December 8, 1997, and in the rest of the world in January and February 1998. It became Dion's biggest hit, and one of the best-selling singles of all time, and was the world's best-selling single of 1998. "My Heart Will Go On" won the 1997 Academy Award for Best Original Song. It dominated the Grammy Awards of 1999, winning Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television. "My Heart Will Go On" won also the Golden Globe Award for "Best Original Song-Motion Picture" in 1998. The song also won a Japanese Gold Disc Award, for Song of the Year, as well as a Billboard Music Award for Soundtrack Single of the Year.


Grammy Song Of the Year 1998

"Sunny Came Home", is a folk-rock song by American musician Shawn Colvin. It is the theme song to her 1996 concept album A Few Small Repairs, and quickly became a hit when it was released as a CD single on June 24, 1997. The song tells the story of a woman named Sunny who burns down her house to escape her past. (The cover art on the single shows images of a woman and a burning house.)It is one of several "story songs" on A Few Small Repairs, a method of songwriting Colvin began experimenting with while writing for the album. The title of the song comes from the opening lyrics. "Sunny Came Home" is Colvin's most successful single to date. In the 1998 Grammy Awards, it was named Song of the Year and Record of the Year. The Grammy Awards presentation was the occasion for an interruption by rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard stating that his group, Wu-Tang Clan, is for the children, while Colvin was about to receive her award. It peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, and likely would have achieved a higher peak had it been released commercially sooner to correspond with the song's airplay maximum: it was #1 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart for four weeks and also #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart for four weeks.

The heat is On!

The long wait is over as American Idol Season 10 has begun! I've been waiting for this season to come. Well, As usual, we will be tracking down the show and will give you updates about it. So make sure you follow this blog for the latest American Idol update okay? Anyway, this season is really something new. Well, first because this is the first season that we will not be seeing Simon Cowell on the judges table. That's definitely a bad news for us but absolutely a good news to all the Idol hopefuls because they will no longer receive those heart breaking and harsh comments from the former resident judge. Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith frontman, Steven Tyler will be replacing Simon, Kara and Ellen Degeneres. Randy Jackson on the other hand will still be a part of the show. American Idol premiered last week and they are currently on the audition round to gather some wonderful talents from each states. I am really excited about this! The next episode will be this coming Thursday so that's four days to go! So for the meantime while waiting, i guess i will be keeping my self busy for awhile in playing my favorite Online Casino game. I am really enjoying these online casino games lately. It was my cousin who encouraged me to play this game and now, it seems that i am hooked to it. I used to play it during my free time at the office and at home too. My cousin used to give me some useful and effective tips to maximize my chances of winning and believe me guys, it's working! But of course, just like what they said about casino, the luck will not always be in your hands. If you are winning the game consecutively, it doesn't mean that you will be winning it again the other day. Just play moderately and wisely!

Grammy Song Of the Year 1997

"Change the World" is a song written by Tommy Sims, Gordon Kennedy and Wayne Kirkpatrick which was recorded by Eric Clapton with backing by Babyface for the soundtrack of the 1996 film Phenomenon. The song won Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Song of the Year (for the songwriters), as well as Best Male Pop Vocal performance. The song was chosen by the RIAA as one of the Songs of the Century, ranked at #270.The single peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the summer of 1996. It also spent 13 weeks at #1 on the adult contemporary chart and remained on that chart for over a year and a half (80 weeks), a feat which was extraordinarily rare at the time. Since then, however, certain songs have remained on the AC chart for extended periods of time, prompting the eventual creation af an Adult Contemporary recurrent chart for songs that have stayed on the chart for many weeks and fallen below a certain threshold.Although "Change the World" is better known as an unplugged acoustic track, a rare electric performance of the song was featured on Babyface's 1997 live album Babyface MTV Unplugged NYC, with Clapton on co-lead vocals, playing his namesake signature Fender Stratocaster guitar. There was also another electric cover of this track, released the following year, with Nathan East on electric bass.In the song, the performer expresses his desire to communicate his love to an unnamed woman. This love, he fears, will go unrequited without a drastic change in his life.

Indoor Fun Activity

It's been raining outside since last week and it seems that the weather is not so cooperating lately. We have so many plans and almost all of them were postponed because of this stupid weather condition. Well, i guess we have no choice but to stay inside our house til weather gets fine. I know it's kinda boring. We have watched almost all the DVD's we have at home and watching them over and over again irritates my eyes. Good thing mom cooks good dishes and she can do a lot of stuffs even the food stocks that we have is not enough for her recipes. She's fond of experimenting different kinds of dishes and thanks God, most of them turns out really really good.
Anyway, i know we can do something to keep ourselves busy despite of this unwanted weather outside. I did some research awhile ago about different indoor fun activities. One of the most interesting so far is the treasure hunting game. I'm sure Milzon and Mirasol will enjoy this game so as ours. Well, i better start gathering our materials. I will make this pretty hard for the two kids hahaha. Giving some challenges would be great. I even searched for some treasure hunt ideas online to make this activity more adventurous and exciting. I know we have Captain and pirates costumes in our closet...
That's all for now guys, I have to search for that costume first. Will be back later! See yah!

After a quick shot of Rittenhouse Square, it ends with Springsteen walking along the Delaware River, with the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in the background. Tom Hanks is also visible as the lead character he plays in the film, looking on as Bruce begins the final verse.

My Favorite Casino Games

I really love playing Casino games and in fact, i have some downloaded games on my computer at my Office. I used to play them every break. They are very effective tool to keep me away from getting bored and from being too much stressed because of the heavy work loads. We do not have Internet Connection at the office and we are not allowed to do some online activities while we are at work. But i was able to manage to download some games on my PC through my USB haha. Anyway, here are the games that i really love to play at the office. I took some snapshots of it.
Well, i don't know if Mahjong is considered as one of Casino gambling games but i have this game on my PC and i enjoyed playing it. It's just a simple match playing game with a twist. You just have to remove all the tiles with a pair. The tiles should be side edge free and there should be no tiles over it. Kinda complicated at first but you can get used to it as long as you play it continously.

If you know the typical solitaire card game, then try Vegas Solitaire. Instead of drawing three cards at a time, you can draw one card at a time here. But the you can never turn those cards back to the deck again. Somehow challenging eh?

Probably the king of all the card games. Blackjack is one of my favorite, It will measure how good you are in making critical and wise decision whether you stand on your card or not.

The simplest and the coolest Casino games of all. I really love Slot Machine games! It is very easy and it doesn't require any skills or techniques in order for you to win.

Well, it could be more challenging if you play online casinos. it offers more excitement and fun knowing that you will be dealing with real online players and you will feel that you're playing the actual casino games even thought you're only facing your computer.

In the original theatrical production, the fictional characters singing "Somewhere Out There", Fievel and Tanya Mousekewitz, are brother and sister, and the love they share is described as general. However, in the more popular single version of the song, the love is described as more romantic.

High School Reunion

The photo above was taken few months ago as we held our very first High School reunion. Well, we had so much fun there and we're very happy to see each other faces again. It's been five years and i guess our batch really deserve a reunion. The event was held very successfully and most of us are present! Some of my classmates are missing but according to our organizer, most of them are either working abroad or staying there for good. They tried to contact them and it sounds like we will have another reunion this year! We are very excited to see the others and to see if they are still look the same. High School is probably the most exciting and happiest moments in my life. Our home works and exams might be a little bit pressuring but not as worst as what i am experiencing now in my masteral course in college. Sad, but we have to accept the fact that we will all be leaving each other and take our own paths in life.
I can say that i a frustrated nurse. I really want to take the Nursing course but for some reason, i took Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education. I really don't have a stable plan at that time and i am quite confused whether what course to take. Nursing is really my top priority but my feet is taking me to the path where i am now. Maybe this is not an accident or a wrong decision. Maybe, it is my destiny to become a teacher. Well, i started to love teaching and i do accept tutorial services too to help me with my extra expenses. I cannot say that i am a passionate teacher but i can say that i am trying my best to become one.

Anyway, back to the reunion thing. The photo above are my classmates wearing their medical scrubs. Most of my classmates took Nursing Course while others are now into Engineering field. Every time i see them wearing these nursing uniforms scrub, i started to feel kinda jealous, wishing and hoping that someday i could wear those scrubs and do the nursing things. It's like my childhood dream to become a nurse or a doctor. I remember mom used to buy me some toy doctor tools and let me play them. I remember they took a video of me playing those toys an acting like a professional doctor. Well, it's life! There's no such thing as constant in this world. Everything changes from time to time and we can do nothing about it. And besides, being a teacher is not bad at all. In fact, that is something that i should be very proud of.

These guys above are also my former high school classmates who are currently working on the same hospital. The one from the left is Miko and he's my best friend. He will be celebrating his birthday this coming February and i should buy something for him since he gave me a wallet on my last birthday and i should pay back the price. Well, i think of buying mens scrubs for him but i just don't know his size. Maybe i'll ask him without telling the actual reason. What yah think? Anyway, i better go to sleep now, I have so many lesson plans to do and i should not be stressing my self out. Have a great day everyone and happy blogging.

A Lesson From Mom.

House cleaning is probably the most time consuming task of all. Well, it is like a regular routine already and you have no choice but to deal with it despite of your busy working schedule. Of course, you cannot concentrate to your work if your workplace is kinda messy right? Same thing goes with your bedroom, you cannot sleep if your room is like a disaster. For my mom, having a messy room is like a nightmare. Good thing she taught us how to become responsible and how to become neat in all our things. I remember when we were kids, mom used to list down all the house chores and then she will assign each task to each of us. She even give us date and give us daily rotations.
This, helped us to become responsible and taught us how to become independent. But of course, things are not like before. My brother and i both have work while my sister is busy for her school. Mom used to do all the house chores alone and we do not want that scenario to continue. I encourage my brother to get something like that House Cleaning Vancouver WA service to help our mom. It is time for us to pay back. My mom deserves a rest and we're all planning to take her to mall this weekend!

Grammy Song Of the Year 1987

"That's What Friends Are For" is a 1982 song written by Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager and introduced by Rod Stewart for the soundtrack of the film Night Shift. The song is far better known for its cover version by Dionne Warwick and Friends. A one-off collaboration featuring Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder released as a charity single in the United Kingdom and the United States in 1985, it was recorded as a benefit for American Foundation for AIDS Research, and raised over US$3 million for that cause. The tune peaked at number one for three weeks on the soul chart and for four weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 interestingly becoming the final US number one for all but John. In January 1986 and became Billboard's number one single of 1986. The Dionne and Friends version of the song won the performers the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, as well as Song of the Year for its writers, Bacharach and Bayer Sager. It also was ranked by Billboard magazine as the most popular song of 1986. Dionne and Friends' version also listed at #61 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time.


Grammy Song Of the Year 1986

"We Are the World" is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and co-produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album We Are the World. With sales in excess of 20 million copies, it is one of the fewer than thirty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide. Awarded numerous honors—including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and a People's Choice Award—the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of "We Are the World" and raised over $63 million for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US. Following the devastation caused by the magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, a remake of the song by another all-star cast of singers was recorded on February 1, 2010. Entitled "We Are the World 25 for Haiti", it was released as a single on February 12, 2010, and proceeds from the record will aid survivors in the impoverished country. "We Are the World" has demonstrated that diverse musicians can productively work together, and has further influenced the movement within pop music to create songs that address humane concerns.

Wise Decision

So lucky of my Uncle to have this brand new White Honda Civic. This photo on the left was taken on their house blessing ceremony. They also grab the opportunity to show us their newly buy car. Well, it's not really brand new. This car is a second hand car that they bought from their very close friend. Well, i am not a car enthusiast but i can say that they really made a wise and practical decision of buying this car. Uncle Greg showed us the engine and it seems pretty good. Most of the parts are upgraded even the exhaust! Well, i'm sure this car performs well. According to him, the previous owner is not using this car so often that's why it seems like so brand new. Well, i wish i could buy one too and i wish i could own at least any of the cars that i saw in a magazine. If i am just a millionaire, i will definitely buy a luxury car like a limousine or Mercedes van. Okay, I know i must be dreaming but even though i can't buy a luxury car for my own and i can still have a chance to ride on it and use it to attend a social events! Yup! It is possible through services like the Limo Portland Car rental services in Oregon. So go ahead and experience the royalty by renting a luxury car!

Charice as we know it, will be portraying the exchange Filipino student named Sunshine Corazon. She has revealed through Billboard that her next appearance on the series will be at the beginning of this year. As a big fan, i am looking forward to her next outstanding performance on the show.

I have heard that she is about to release her second international album this year. Pyramid is such a huge success making her the first Asian in history to land in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart.

Anyway, Charice' Pyramid and some of her singles are also available for digital downloads especially on ITunes. As we know it, Itunes is only open for US users but if you have iTunes Gift Card , you can freely access the site with no limitation. You can also download some of Glee's episodes there too!

Goal this Year

I was very blessed last year because i was able to buy most of the things that i want including my New HP laptop. I've been targeting this laptop since 2009 but i failed to buy one that year because i had some financial difficulties. I also got new Sony Cybershot last year which is also one of my ultimate dreams.
Time really run out so fast and i just couldn't imagine that we just celebrated the new year last week. Anyway, it's been a tradition to me already to set up my goals every new year. Setting goals help me a lot to get more motivated in my work and help me keep going.
Well, this year my main target is something for my self, i really want to buy an IPad. I know it's kinda impossible for me to buy such an expensive gadget like this but there's nothing wrong in hoping right? I'll do my best to have this gadget. I'll be working much harder to earn more money, i will start a small business, or join some well trusted cash gifting programs.
Involving yourself in such networking business might be very risky if you do not know the company that you are dealing with. So before participating, better conduct some research first about the company.
Well, wish me luck guys! How about you, what are your goals for this year?

We all know how expensive a car is right? Car has been every man’s dream and we will do everything just to have it (well, not every men but at least most of us do). Car is like a house, you can make it more appealing by upgrading some if its parts. You can put some car accessories to make it more eye-catching. Adding some cool gadgets inside your car will definitely give you the best driving experience ever! But as a car owner, you are also responsible in some other things like getting insurance for your car.

Plumbing Issues

4 months ago, we had renovated our house. It took 2 consecutive months before we saw the actual results. It is quite irritating at first but as soon as we saw the outcome, we are very pleased and we realized that we did the right choice to renovate the house. Well, we faced some issues after the renovation like the wiring issues. The phone lines went down because of some wiring issues caused by the renovation. We also had some problem with the pipes. All of the sudden, the water shower is not working well, as in no water coming out from it. We suspect that maybe it has something to deal with the renovation, so we contact a plumber to fix it for us. However, it took him how many days before finding out the real cause. If we just hired someone like the plumber lake oswego, Oregon has, this issue will definitely be resolved in no time.

Bar Hopping

I’m really not into traveling and bar hopping. Actually I prefer to spend most of my time at home, sitting in front of my computer and doing my online activities. But if I’m gonna hang out with my friends, I will definitely take them to a bar or a restaurant that offer state of the art facilities and offer delightful dishes that will satisfy my cravings. I also wish I could travel outside our country and visit the wonderful place of Oregon. I will definitely try to visit all Restaurants Tigard, Oregon has especially that Hilltop Café. I’ve been hearing about this famous resto from my blogger friends which makes it more interesting for me to find out that this Hilltop café really has to offer. I just don’t know if we have the same café here but if we do have Hilltop Café here, I will never waste my time and visit this five star restaurant immediately.
