Loving Lugang Cafe

Two of my friends treated us for their birthday at Lugang Cafe SM The Block last week and I really loved the food!  Everything was so tasty!!  The ambience too was nice. It wasn't a busy night when we were there so it was ok even if we were a bit rambunctious and makwento.  It was after all, a birthday party!

I'll definitely go back to Lugang Cafe again, although I heard from my friends that even in SM The Block, there is always a queue to get in.

Typhoon Mario Coverage: Top TV Show for the Week

Typhoon Mario was not even on the radar of most Metro Manilans the week it struck Manila so when it caused major floods everywhere in the metropolis, it was like Typhoon Ondoy all over again!  It was not surprising that its news coverage in the local channels are my top TV shows for the week.

Coco Martin's Woman on a Leash: Copied to Generate Controversy

When I read about that Bench fashion show controversy about Coco Martin having a woman on a leash, I immediately thought, "Oh, kinopya lang nila si Madonna", which they did kasi I'm sure whoever directed that show also saw Madonna's Confessions Tour.
Yun lang, in Madonna's concert, it was she who was holding the leash and it was two of her male dancers ata who played the part of the 'horses'.
I haven't seen the whole 'Coco Martin' sequence so I don't know if it was done in context. Baka kasi bigla lang lumabas si Coco na may dalang 'pet'. I guess that's the reason why so many people were offended.
In Madonna's show naman, the whole sequence started with a video of many horses running, so when everyone came out wearing equestrian costumes that veered towards a blatant S&M context, get na agad ang concept! (Of course, what's a Madonna concert with sexual overtones!).
It's actually one of my most favorite concepts she has ever done, because the costumes designed by D&G were beautifully made and I'm sure everyone who was into S&M that night were turned on by it!
If that concert of Madonna was brought here to Manila years ago, people who saw the Bench show would instantly say, "Ay nakita ko na yan before ah!"

Evan Peters: Distressingly Sexy in American Horror Story

I have just finished the first season of American Horror Story and aside from Dylan McDermott, it's Evan Peters who I think is just so sexy and hot in that TV show, even though he plays a very very bad person! Although he never removes his shirt in any of the scenes in the first season, his innocent babyface really fools you because his character in Season 1 is really despicable! I am so looking forward to seeing Seasons 2 and 3!

The 2014 US Open Men's Finals: My Most Favorite TV Show This Week

It was still tennis week for me this week as the semi's and the finals were being contested. That's why my top four favorite shows were tennis matches.  

Here are my ten favorite TV shows for the week ending September 12, 2014 -

#1 Balls - Cilic vs. Nishikori

#2 Balls - Wozniacki vs. Peng

#3 Balls - Cilic vs. Federer

#4 Balls - Djokovic vs. Nishikori

#5 HBO - The Prestige

#6 HBO - Mean Girls

#7 Jack TV - guy bugbog magicians

#10 beTV - Desperate Housewives - bury body

Scotland Says No!

The world's borders have changed so much before the 90s and after the 90s and my generation has seen it all.  

It used to be the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or the USSR but after glasnost, ayun, I was shocked to find out that there were Asian looking people pala who were former Soviets!  So now, Victoria Azarenka who is from Belarus and Maria Sharapova who comes from Russia are playing for different countries!

Czechoslovakia broke into the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic while both East and West Germany became one unified country.

I was also very surprised to see Yugoslavia break into so many small countries! Marin Cilic who is Croatian would've been teammates with Ana Ivanovic who is Serbian!

Anyway, buti na lang majority of the Scots voted No in the referendum for their independence.  However, for how long can the UK hold on to them, kasi the 55%-45% vote is very close!  

A Yes vote kasi would've huge implications all over Europe! The Basque and the Catalan regions in Spain could demand a referendum from the central Spanish government and that country could break up!  The Corsicans might also demand a break from France!

Oh well, the boundaries of the countries of the world will always remain fluid even after I leave this earth.

Ai Ai delas Alas admits relationship with 20-year-old DLSU athlete

Twenty years ago, it would've been unthinkable for much older women in Filipino society to have boyfriends in their 20s.  Ngayon, parang requirement na siya!  Parang si Boots Anson Roa tuloy ang naging exception to the rule!  

Which brings me to my point.  I have FB friends who are more beautiful than Ms. Ai Ai and Mommy Dionisia but are still single.  Why not open your minds to the possibility of having a boyfriend in his 20s?  

Eto ang pros! First, busy ka sa trabaho sa araw, busy ka na rin sa gabi!  Second, may jowa ka na, parang may anak ka na rin, kasi bibigyan mo ng allowance once in a while - o di ba, 2-in-1!  And your face won't age na agad, kasi may daily source ka na ng protein!  Fourth, just imagine all the jealous faces of your friends when you bring your boy toy, este, boyfriend to social functions! O di ba, maglaway na lang ang mga frenemies mo!

Kaya next time you're in the company of men in their 20s, and merong nagfi-flirt sa iyo, why not give it a try? Don't think too much, just let it flow.....chos!!  Baka kayo na ng jowa mo ang ipost ko dito next time!

Finding Happiness in My Forties

I really thought something was wrong with me till I read the work done by these two professors, who set up a study, to figure out what experiences made people the most happy and why.

What they found out was that the older people got, the more content they were with ordinary experiences.

Well, you'd have to be 40 and above to appreciate what the scientists found out. I could actually hear a collective 'Huh?!!" from those who are just in their 20s and 30s.....

Artur Avila: 2014 Fields Medal Winner - And I Thought Mathematicians Looked Like Nerds!

Brazil shouldn't fret pala with their World Cup loss this year.  Their most brilliant mathematician, Artur Avila just won the Fields Medal this year! Amazing! 

Well, the Fields Medal is the Nobel Prize for Mathematics, since, if you didn't know, the Nobel Prize doesn't give prizes to mathematicians.

I also only learned now that Brazil pala has a university exclusively for graduate-level mathematics in Rio de Janeiro, called IMPA and it has been there since 1952.  It only has around 150 students but its annual budget is a staggering half a BILLION pesos!!  (I want to cry for UP hu hu hu).  No wonder, it finally produced a Fields Medal winner.

I met a lot of math major nerds in UP and I really hope one of them would win the Fields Medal someday.  Most of my teachers who had Math doctorates studied in Japan.  Studying in Rio would've been more fun since in the article I read, most of his peers would find Artur on the beach - and they would hold their consultations there!  Who said studying Math isn't fun!!

Just Discovered Alex London and His Books

I am constantly on the lookout for interesting authors and I chanced upon an article on Alex London and his books and it was a really good read! I will definitely get a copy of his books when I visit the mall this weekend.  I don't know what to buy first though.  I may have to do some research first. =)

My Lesson for the Day

I was reading this business article by economist Bernardo Villegas and he gave out this quote from his student days in Barcelona - "No hay donde por donde bien venga."  Just google translate it.

Anywyay, that totally describes everything that's going on in my life right now!

A Taste of the Naked Truth - Bench Style!

Based on the tweets of Markki and Sam Concepcion, the Bench Naked Truth underwear show will push through tomorrow, Saturday, September 20 at 5:30PM.  I won't be watching though since the venue is not very intimate but it would've been fun to see the guys shirtless!  

My favorite there is Markki Stroem and I'm really happy for him because I think his exposure here would really endear him to the masses.  I think that's really the push he needs right now.  It also helps that he's such a looker, yum yum!!  I feel lucky though since I can see him in my gym regularly bwahaha I'm just too shy to say hi!

It's also great to see Dominic Roque in the mix.  He has really beefed up since the last time I saw him.  When we talked to him about two years ago, he and his manager were still shy about him getting beefed up and showing off his body.  See what two years later can do!!  I hope it boosts his career as well!

Tom and Dennis are already proven and tested actors so their inclusion here is just to titillate the fans of their defunct yet very popular TV show.

As for Martin, finally, somebody had the great idea to include him in this show!  I've been so into him since that teleserye he appeared in a few years ago.  I think he's hot!!

Don't know much about Arnold Van Opstal since I'm not a hoops fan but UAAP hoops fans out there should be very happy!

Pool Boy

I was in the pool today and the guy beside me was this hot tisoy with broad shoulders. OMG! He was prepping up for his butterfly stroke so I can see him wiggle his body up and down the pool much like what a mermaid would do - the only difference was, it was a hunk doing it! 

Really, I couldn't concentrate on my laps! All that wiggling was messing my mind!

He finally did the butterfly stroke after an hour and he was majestic to watch! It was like a merman was chasing after me! Chos!

Ayun, I had my chances of talking to him as we did rest at the same side of the pool several times, but I don't know, I just clammed up!

Maybe I just wanted the fantasy to stay for a while. I was afraid that if he'd open his mouth, his voice would squeak like Mickey Mouse - or he would be really malamya - which would totally destroy the fantasy in my head!

I had to leave the pool after my ten laps, I was famished - all I could think about was eating his quarter pounder! Oooppsss, Freudian slip! Anyway, I did linger a little bit, just checking him out - stalker! But he was so in the zone!

He'd better watch out next time coz, he'll swim right into my net!

Crushing on Aaron Samuels a.k.a. Jonathan Bennett

I can't believe I never bothered to watch that Lindsay Lohan movie, Mean Girls.  I actually have the DVD at home, but for some reason, it never reached my player!

Anyway, better late than never.  I watched the movie on HBO today and I was floored by how funny it was! I loved it!  It was like the Clueless movie for the 2000's!

I loved it more because of Aaron Samuels which was played by the gorgeous Jonathan Bennett!!  All his photos now are fast forward ten years later but he still looks hot and most of all, he's gay too!!  Lovet!!  Nothing like a gorgeous guy to play for my team!

Mayim Bialik: From 'Beaches' to 'Big Bang Theory'

I was watching Beaches today on the Diva Channel and I discovered that the girl playing Bette Midler as the young gregarious girl is the woman now playing the nerdy girlfriend of the Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory - Mayim Bialik!!  I did not even see the similarity!

She's one of my favorite characters in that TV show and she really 'dowd-ied' herself in the TV show - which is actually perfect if she's playing a physicist nerd!  Anyway, I remember her wonderful performance in Beaches where her character was plucky and brave and fearless - exactly the way I wanted to be since I was a very shy teenager then.

It's cool to see she never went away after all!  Now, I am even a bigger fan!

Charles Mesure: Definitely A Hot Mature Actor!

It's really great that Hollywood has embraced hunky mature actors, and they abound in the TV show Desperate Housewives!  I started watching this show during their first season then I drifted apart.  I am now watching their eighth season and I am really enjoying the show!  I love all the twists and turns and how the girls are doing their best to protect each other.  I also love the eye candy in them - all mature yet yummy!

Charles Mesure is one of the hunky eye candies I love in this show!  I love the accent of this guy and I love the way he flirts with Vanessa Williams!  Funny thing is I haven't seen him shirtless yet in the show! (Insert sad face here.)

An Episode of The Ghost Inside My Child: My Most Favorite TV Show for the Week

The Crime Investigation channel has a very interesting show right now entitled The Ghost Inside My Child!  The first episode I saw featured the screen writer of Gone With the Wind, Sidney Howard.  Apparently, his spirit 'entered' that of a kid from somewhere in America, and the kid kept insisting that he be brought to Hollywood and that he knew something about how Hollywood works. And he was just a kid, about 5-6 years old!! Intriguing right!  I strongly suggest you watch an episode of that show!

One of the most interesting TV shows I have ever seen!

It's still tennis week this week, so eight of my favorite TV shows are all US Open matches.

Here are my ten favorite TV shows for the week ending September 5, 2014 -

#1 CI - The Ghost Inside My Child - Eric - castle in the sky - screenwriter - Gone With the Wind

#2 Balls - Kvitova vs. Krunic

#3 Balls - Peng vs. Bencic

#4 Balls - Makarova vs. Azarenka

#5 Balls - Krunic vs. Azarenka

#6 Balls - Lucic Baroni v. Halep

#7 Balls - Errani vs. Venus

#8 Balls - Lucic- Baroni v. Errani

#9 Balls - Pennetta vs. Dellacqua

#10ABS-CBN - Rated K - Wiggle - Kevin and his group

Farewell Joan Rivers: Thanks for the Red Carpet Ride

It's another sad day for the world of comedy as one of their best just passed away. This generation knows Joan Rivers more for her biting comments during red carpet events like the Oscars, but for me who's a bit older and well, gay, she was a gay icon who guested members of the LGBT community in her talk shows when it was not yet very cool to show gay people on American TV.

Most importantly, I loved the way she wrote and was a wonderful comedy writer whose books demanded that women take care of themselves and stay beautiful even when they age. Her books were not Pulitzer-Prize winners but if you wanted a good laugh, just read her books and you'll actually hear her barking her humor into your ears!

Diego Boneta: Muy Bonito Hombre en Rock of Ages

I actually was not able to watch the movie and theater version of Rock of Ages when it was shown here a few years ago.  Maybe I was too busy but anyway, I caught the latter part of the movie today, while waiting for a tennis match, and lo and behold, I couldn't get my eyes off Diego Boneta!!

He's muy caliente!!  Definitely hot hot hot!! The movie was definitely star-studded so that may be the reason why I did not notice him the first time.  But, now I am a big fan of his already!

Mark Gil's Place in Pinoy Film Pantheon Assured

I read with sadness the news that Mark Gil passed away today.  I will always associate him with that classic Mike de Leon film Batch '81, arguably one of the best Filipino movies ever made!

I don't know if he won any awards for that role but it's one of the best performances of any Filipino actor ever!  I rarely feel fear or a sense of uneasiness when I watch a Pinoy movie but I remember having this sense of dread while watching this movie, fearing for the lives and safety of the neophytes led by Mark Gil.

You have to remember that the movie was released during the height of the Marcos dictatorship and it was not difficult to associate the sadism and the brutality in the movie with what was happening in Philippine society at that particular time.

Anyway, his place in Filipino cinema is assured and his legacy continues as one of his daughters is a fine actress herself.
