Dayana Mendoza, her last day as Miss Universe 2008

(photo credits: Miss Universe LLP.

Moments from now, a new beauty queen will be crowned as Miss Universe 2009. Dayana Mendoza, the reigning Miss Universe from Venezuela will relinquish her crown to 84 delegates vying for the title of being the most beautiful woman in the universe.

I really love her! I think she's one of the best Miss Universe titleholder ever. I remember last year as I witnessed her victory in Miss Venezuela pageant, I immediately said to myself: "Ok, game's over. This will be the next Miss Universe." And true enough, Dayana really shined during the pageant in Vietnam. She's fresh, elegant, charismatic and full of energy.

So, who's gonna take her place as the new Miss Universe? Hmmm... I got my own faves: Australia, Spain, Kosovo, Russia, France, Jamaica, Ethiopia, Italy, Guatemala, Czech Rep. I just hope it will not be some over-hyped beauties that look almost in their mid-thirties! hahaha. As for our own representative Bianca Manalo... of course I wish her all the best. Oh well, let's just find out and I hope she'll prove me wrong.

*sigh. Dayana Mendoza, I'll definitely miss her. She's one damn great Miss Universe!

Yahoo! popular search: 1. Corazon Aquino

As expected, people would wanna know more bout her...
An icon of Philippine Democracy, she'll surely be missed by all. Thank you, madame president.

Farewell, President Cory Aquino (1933-2009)

Such a strong woman, an icon of Democracy and women empowerment .
Farewell to our former president. Her legacy to our country will forever remain in our hearts.

MANILA, Philippines – Former President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino has passed away.

She was 76.

Her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III confirmed that she died of cardio-respiratory arrest at exactly 3:18 a.m. Saturday at the Makati Medical Center.

Mrs. Aquino has been diagnosed with colon cancer early in 2008 and has been confined at the Makati Medical Center for more than a month.

Mrs. Aquino, widow of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr., will be remembered as an icon of democracy, having led a military-backed popular revolt in 1986 that ousted a dictator who ruled the country for 20 years.

At about 5 a.m. outside the hospital, Noynoy read a statement announcing the death of his mother.

The statement read:

"Our mother peacefully passed away at 3:18 a.m., August 1, 2009, of cardio-respiratory arrest.

“She would have wanted to thank each and every one of you for all the prayers and your continued love and support. It was her wish for all of us to pray for one another and for our country.

“Hinihiling po ng aming pamilya ang kaunting panahon para makasama namin ang aming mahal na ina.

“Later today, we will be announcing further details of her wake para sa lahat ng ating mga minamahal na kababayan na nais magbigay ng respeto sa aming ina. Maraming salamat po.”

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo expressed her condolences to the family of the former President, Arroyo's press secretary said.

The President is set to declare a week of national mourning, said Press Secretary Cerge Remonde in a live phone patch from the US where he is accompanying Arroyo who is on official visit there.

Remonde said the President could cut short her trip but that they were going to discuss the matter when they get to New York, their next stop after Washington D.C. where she met President Barack Obama at the White House.

Arroyo is expected to be back in Manila on August 5.

Remonde also said that under the law, all presidents were entitled to a state funeral but added that this would be subject to the family's approval.

Popular TV host Boy Abunda, a close friend of the Aquino family, told reporters on Saturday that the Aquinos were praying the Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary when Cory gave her "last deep breath.”

Abunda said all five children of Mrs. Aquino, and her close friends and relatives were at her bedside when the former leader passed away.

After that last breath, Abunda said, Mrs. Aquino's children quietly cried.

"Malungkot. Tahimik na nag-iiyakan. Tahimik, except for Kris who was very quiet," he said, referring to the youngest daughter of Mrs. Aquino.

"Kris was very quiet. She was displaying such courage pero noong dindadala palabas mga labi ni Tita Cory... because you have to remember that Kris was in the hospital, Kris was by the side of her mother since July 20 hanggang sa mga oras na yun. Hanggang ngayon si Kris ay nasa tabi ng kanyang ina," Abunda said.

He said a Mass, officiated by Fr. Catalino Arevalo, was held after Mrs. Aquino's death.

Abunda said Arevalo is a very close friend of the former leader and had been officiating a Mass for her at the hospital.

A family driver of the Aquinos was seen loading stuff into a white Toyota Hi-Ace van parked at the back entrance of the hospital. He said the boxes and luggage belonged to Kris who left the hospital early Saturday morning. With a report from Niña Calleja and Gil Cabacungan Jr., Philippine Daily Inquirer

Asian Total Solar Eclipse - July 22, 2009

They say it's the longest this 21st century lasting around 6 minutes. That's why I took a break from work, went outside and had a snapshot of it. Unfortunately here in the Philippines, we didn't really experience the total darkness - as compared to what billions of people in India and China had witnessed. Anyway, I'm still thankful I was able to see such magnificent phenomenon. Good thing I have my mom's old x-ray film and my handy Cybershot to capture the moment. =)

To "tweet" or not to tweet...

I remember way back 2007 or early 2008, I got an invitation request from a friend to sign-up for a Twitter account. I was only a "Friendster-user" back then (eewww, jologs..hahaha). I'm really not into such social networking sites before, until I learned about Facebook & decided to make the big switch from FS to FB :)

But now, Twitter is really gaining popularity in the world-wide web. It now ranks 16th according to Alexa's Top 500 Global Sites (with Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Facebook, and Windows Live dominating the TOP 5). Twitter is sometimes called "the SMS of the Internet". I'm still quite unfamiliar with what Twitter can actually do. Believe it not, I just signed-up today for a Twitter account and just posted my very-first tweet! hahaha. I was just helping out my officemate with her Social Media Marketing tasks, and now I'm curious what's the buzz about this whole Twitter thingy. I found this video in YouTube that explains what Twitter is all about in layman's terms.

So, do I really have to "tweet"?

You're the 1, Goldilocks

Before anything else, let's make some rewind a few years back...
Remember this song?

Ang araw na’to ay araw mo
Pagdating mo sa ating mundo

Matatandaan di malilimutaan
Kailanman, kailanman

Ang saya ng mundo ngayong ikaw ay narito
I wish you a Happy Birthday

Ahh.. memories (*sigh). We used to sing this song every time a friend celebrates his/her birthday . And I must say that this is probably one of my favorite advertisements made for Goldilocks.

For more than 4 decades, Goldilocks has always been part of every Filipinos celebration of life. As a matter of fact, it’s now almost certain that whenever there’s a birthday party, there’s always a Goldilocks cake that guests will truly adore. A special occasion is made even better with a Goldilocks product around. Baby showers, christenings, graduation, fiestas, even hospital visits
– you name it, a Goldilocks cake roll, “mamon”, or “ensaymada” will be present for sure! And to tell you frankly, I even had a chance to attend a funeral where all of us guests had Goldilocks ensaymadas and juice in tetra packs for snacks. ( I never thought that attending funeral could be that enjoyable and rewarding! )

Goldilocks has been also my mom’s favorite “pasalubong” to us. I remember that ever since I was a kid, she used to bring home from work either a chocolate roll or Brazo de Mercedes practically every pay day. Boy, how I loooovvveee and anticipate pay days during those times!

So, what makes Goldilocks “the one” close to our hearts? I'm not going to talk about Mike’s Autobiography: The Goldilocks Edition here, coz that’ll be like a torture reading all the 20-plus years of significant events in my life with a Goldilocks product in it. Of course, all of us have our own unique share of memories and celebrations with it, but why do we love Goldilocks so much? Is it really just meant for special occasions alone?

Years ago, I used to work in our office along Chino Roces corner Herrera st. in Makati. It was my first time to work in that area. And every break time, my officemates and I go to only one place – and that’s Goldilocks just right across the street! Yipeee! My top favorite snacks were: Hamonado Ensaymada, Blueberry muffin, brownies, Sago’t Gulaman, and Mais con Yelo (yumyum!). Believe it or not, my Korean boss loves the sweet, chewy consistency of their Sago’t Gulaman so much that whenever his Korean friends or guests come to our office, he’d always ask someone to buy some for them. At times when I feel stressed or pressured from work, I’d simply head towards Goldilocks, buy me some cake slice and my favorite Mais con Yelo, and then I would feel happy and recharged. Goldilocks has been the source of my comfort food. I also remember the time when my taste bud was badly craving for some slice of choco mousse and mais con yelo. It was raining really hard that night and the whole stretch of Chino Roces was submerged in knee-level flood. But then, there's just no stopping me from getting that slice of choco mousse and mais con yelo. So I crossed the river, errr the flooded street, ordered my cake slice & refreshment, and viola! – a piece of heaven in the middle of a stormy, stormy night =). Weird as it seems, but I love my choco mouse and mais con yelo... rain or shine.

But now that I transferred office, it's kinda sad that there's no Goldilocks shop near our building. There's one along Ayala avenue, but that's quite a long walk from our office. How I miss those times that I'm just a few steps away from my "sweet paradise", specially the bonding moments that I had with my old friends. Now, every time I have my favorite Goldilocks snacks, it brings me back good old memories with my friends worth reminiscing.

I guess the reason why Goldilocks is the one dearest to us is because it always gives us that “special feeling” no matter what occasion or time of the year it is. It’s that feeling of comfort and satisfaction we get, along with memories to last that makes Goldilocks play a significant part in our lives. What's also amazing about them is that they didn't just stop on providing us premium cakes and pastries. Knowing how passionate Filipinos are when it comes to food, Goldilocks also crafted exceptional dishes out of something that for us seems pretty ordinary. Imagine, even our favorite Pinoy dishes like dinuguan, laing, pancit, etc. are available for us food lovers to enjoy. That’s why I say: " You’re the 1 Goldilocks, because you always turn the usual into something special".

How thoughtful, how Goldilocks.

Contest & a FREE e-book : Confessions of a Shopaholic


Too bad I can't join Nuffnang's Shopaholic Contest. Why? Because I'm no Rebecca Bloomwood. And i'm NOT a shopaholic. hehehe =)

Nuffnang Philippines
is giving away some cool stuff for this contest: advance screening movie tickets, "Confessions of a Shopaholic" premium items, and get this - a limited edition GUCCI bag just by sending your own "confession" as a shopaholic. Unfortunately, the promo ends today - Feb.14 =(

Oh well, perhaps I could just wait for another Nuffnang contest (and probably make a career out of it... hahaha)

Or maybe read the book first before watching the movie. Great idea!

Want some free copy of the best-selling book Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella? Make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. Here's a link to download a free e-book copy:

Enjoy reading!

What is LOVE?

I've been through a lot of heart-breaks, the most painful was during my college days.
And since then, this has been my guide, some sort of a "checklist" to help me when it comes to issues about love :

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud,
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres...
1 Cor. 13:4-7

Happy hearts' day =)

Missing Mer-nel's bakeshop =)

Last week, my mom and I went home to our province in Calauan, Laguna. And as we approached the junction or Jollibee-UPLB intersection ( or "johnson" as what the elders in that area call it), my mom asked me to make a right-turn to UP Los Baños. At first, I thought that she just wanted to have a tour of UPLB and take some souvenir pictures there. Oh well, turns out that she just wants me to buy her a chocolate cake from Mer-nel's.

Mer-nel's Bakeshop
has always been famous for its delicious chocolate cake. For years, th
ey had that reputation of providing probably "the best" cake in town - delicious, yet affordable.

In case you got tired of that same-old buko pie as a "pasalubong", I highly recommend that you drop-by their bakeshop whenever you visit Los Baños, Laguna. I'm sure you'll love it!

Oh, did I mention that my mom's taste is hard-to-please... and that she's diabetic =)

First day of Feb

How fast time flies... today is the first day of February!

For some reason, February has always been synonymous to Loving and Leaving for me. Why loving? Obviously, weeks from now it'll be Valentine's Day - a day when lovers enjoy and "losers" (like me) feel like...well, losers. hahaha :D

Why leaving? I don't know why it became a trend for me that my resignation from work always fall on a February. The last time I resigned was Feb.15, 2007. And now, I'll be leaving my work in Libis,QC on the 10th to go back to Ayala in Makati.

Surely, I'll be missing all of my friends there... it really breaks my heart (that's why I don't wanna be too "emotionally" attached to them).

I don't wanna cry on a fabulous February... not again. waaahhhhhh =(

Happy Anniv, desperateblogger !!!

I've been invited for a coffee date at the Coffee Bean in Greenbelt 3 to celebrate desperateblogger's 1st year anniversary in the blogging industry.

I was kinda expecting that most of her guests will be... you know... moms: working moms, single moms, cooking moms, breast-feeding moms - so at first I'm a bit hesitant to go for i might be out-of-place (and not to mention that i came in really late).
Well, turns out that perhaps they're pretty much busy on some stuff, so it was just me, eMz and {girl}forallstatus who came.

I really had a great time meeting them and hearing their funny stories. To desperateblogger - again congratulations and keep it up! More blogging years to come!

One step at a time

I still have a lot of things to learn about blogging. I just learned how to make a "Read more" section in blogspot. (wohooo!) No more lengthy post and high bounce-rate. Thanks to this tutorial on How To Add The Blogger "Read More" Expandable Link.

Next step, to learn more about:
  • customizing layout
  • tags
  • improving writing skills
  • SEO strategies

... well basically, learn how to blog effectively.

At first, had no plans of getting serious in the world of blogging. I'm more of a designer, not a blogger. I'm not good in writing (yah.. i suck in grammar, composition writing, essays, thesis, Well, guess i have to take this as a challenge. Time to get out of my comfort zone.

Good luck. Kamay sa dibdib. Let's play. =)

In the news

The gorgeous Avvy of Virtusio PR emailed me last week this news clipping from the Philippine Daily Inquirer about last year's SONY Expo. She also said she'll send me copies of the TV interviews that i had. Yeah right... "the" nose-bleed interview.. hahaha :D

Now that i have exposure in print and TV, I wonder what would be next?
- a movie role with KC Concepcion (hmm.. working title: Bangungot??)
- a billboard ad to replace Dingdong Dantes' underwear ad along EDSA (
- or perhaps, a scandal that would make me "the" next internet sensation

Filipinos Unite

Just got this from a friend, and i must admit that i'm not really into this kind of "chain-letter-ish" stuff... but I do believe that this is what our nation really needs - for us to be united in prayer.

Your prayer doesn't have to be an elaborate one, as long as it's sincere and uttered with faith...

Hope you'll take part on this noble mission too... =)


This is a prayer tag and link for the Philippines and the Filipinos. You are enjoined to utter this prayer for nine (9) consecutive days and to tag as many bloggers as you can with preference for Filipinos. But only bona fide Filipinos shall be included in the official registry of Filipino bloggers in this blog. Each time a new blogger makes a link, be sure to send me an email of the entire link through so that the official list will be consolidated in a master list in this blog. For our Muslim brothers, you may make your own special prayer formula but you must never deviate from the formula of this entire post.


Dear heavenly Father, we consecrate to you our beloved country- the Philippines and all the Filipinos around the world. We acknowledge Father that apart from You, we can do nothing and it is only your divine providence and grace that can unite all Filipinos as one nation. We therefore humble ourselves before your throne. We confess all our sins to you individually and collectively as a nation. Forgive us our sins Father and wash us clean by the precious blood of Your beloved Son- Jesus Christ. Mend our wicked ways and let us experience a strong and genuine spiritual revival for ourselves and for our country. Let the Holy Spirit imbibe us with power, love and wisdom to return to Your path of holiness and righteousness. Bless our country, heavenly father. Bless all Filipinos wherever they maybe. Let progress, unity, harmony, stability, justice, peace and prosperity reign in our country.

Bless our leaders, from the President down to the lowest Barangay official. Touch their hearts that they may serve our country with all honesty and with love and integrity. Bless our children and our future generation. And bless us all Father in all aspects of our lives. This we pray to You heavenly Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

Stupidest thing I've ever done (so far..)

After a long drive from our province, I was extremely excited to view and upload all the pictures that I took and show to the rest of the world my photography skills and the natural beauty of our province :
the majestic mountains, the rice fields, blue skies, tall coconut trees, grazing farm animals, etc.
So I plugged in my Sony Cyber-shot into my PC and checked all my "fierce" photos. But there were some "not-so-fierce" shots so i decided to delete them. A pop-up dialog box appeared saying: "This file is read-only blah blah blah.. Are you sure you want to delete it?" And there were 3 options: Yes, Yes to all, and Cancel. And so I clicked "Yes to All".

And just like that.. with that one stupid click, i accidentally deleted all of my pictures stored in the memory stick!!! SOOOOO STUPIDDDDD!!!! I haven't even copied a single image yet into my PC!
Grrrrr!!!! Ahhhhh!!! STUPPPIIIDDDD!!!!

Now i have to google "how restore deleted files in memory stick"

or better yet... "how not to be stupid next time"

bwiset!!! kainis!!!

A time for everything...

a time to be born, and a time to die
a time to plant and a time to uproot
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build.

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance.
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:2-8

In loving memory of my tita

more family reunions...

"The" venue :)

As always, it's been our family's tradition to celebrate "3 Kings" in the province. This time, it was held in the very picturesque town of Pila, Laguna - since most of my relatives from my mom's side live within that area in Laguna.
"The Red House" aka Pila's municipal center

Pila's ancestral church

pose first before visitors arrive =)

Of course, our family reunion wouldn't be complete without food... lots of it =)

and so they arrived... and conquered! :D

The venue can't accommodate us all, and so they headed to the town plaza :D

in front of "The Red House"

now it's time for "my moments.." hahaha :D

I'm thinking... will i ever get that vaio this year??? hahaha :D
