Remembering Ondoy and ELENIN?

In less than a week, it'll be Ondoy's 2nd anniversary. I wish I'll have more time for updating this blog. Since SEO requires tons of writing, my only diversions are coffee shops (and I can't drink caffeinated drinks- the irony of it all), Instagram, Foursquares and walking. I've been nostagic that I watched my Ondoy videos and just spent hours looking at pictures. That hospital in Ortigas extension has been my fave ER section for my panic attacks that developed in 2007. 

I guess, I can never erase the memories of Ondoy coz that would only mean deleting my own birthday. Here are some of the things that are worth remembering:

- I've had dreams about flooding. Dreams of water inside my room. I should have paid more attention to my dreams given that some of them actualized.

- I was still hopeful that the filthy flood water would subside on the evening of Sept. 26 just in time for my so-called birthday bash. I'm not comfy with the idea of celebrating my birthday but I finally gave in (thanks to the hotel's accommodation promo). 

- Now I can explain why I wasn't comfy with that hotel reservation. I never felt miserable nor loathed God. It was a once in a lifetime experience. On the 27th, it was the best birthday ever! No electricity, limited food supply and it was just an awkward situation to greet me a Happy Birthday! (Lol). I was just grateful that we're alive. 

- I've learned to let go of my collections (Jap, Korean, Reg). Now life is more simple since I am not obligated to collect stuff. It's quite hard to lose stuff that will remind you of the people who became a part of your life. I guess, that's why we have memories.

- Our Muslim neighbors had to eat pork since they had no choice. 

- The howling sounds of dogs who survived or were about to die. That's the creepiest sound ever on a dark and rainy night. 

- The rescue efforts of my friends (you know who you are). Braving the strong current, chest-deep cold and filthy water (oil and mud) was just unbelievable! My neighbors are forever grateful for the water and food supply.

- Cannot imagine how I survived that night when I slipped and fell on our neighbor's mossy roof. I guess the angels were protecting me and that I still have important things to do. Also, no need for a costly CT Scan!

- First banca ride made from a coconut's trunk. The entire scene was like Pre-Rapture. I didn't expect people clinging on trees for their dear lives on the 2nd night. 

- Seeing our dogs being patient with the entire situation. No food, only water. The flood waters sudsided on the third day in my area since we're near the Floodway. Our location became a basin for all the excess water.

- If you live in a village, rescue efforts won't prioritize you. The Help coming from choppers will only throw basic survival stuff if your house look old and dilapidated. We've been waiving for almost an hour but we never received any help. I enjoyed the experience though hehehe.

- The heart chakra is only activated during catastrophic events. This should not be the case.

I was drawn to this picture. It took me almost two years to discover real life drama captured on modern day gadgets. Maybe at that time, being part of the Event is already enough.  I was consciously and subsconsciouly avoiding Ondoy pictures. This picture's in Pasig I just can't identify the exact street address. I was rescued by  my friends at night time (27th). Still giving them enough time to greet me hehehe. I never witnessed the relief operations in my village. I can relate to the need for food and water. Also, I had to check my body for open wounds since I don't wanna be part of Leptospirosis' statistics. I already escaped a head injury and I can't be a victim of a rat's poop. No wonder this pic stood out from the thousands of contributors. Good job!

So what about Elenin? Again, my fate is intertwined with significant life-changing events. The critical window period is from Sep 22 - Oct 1. It doesn't end there. It's just the beginning of a roller coaster ride. 

Based on the tons of readings and videos I watched, it's a comet. What's so special about ELENIN? There seems to be a code for its name ELE - Extinction Level Event and NIN representing the 9th month (Sept). I learned about the Extinction Level Event when I watched the movie Deep Impact. Almost all of the important scenes in the movie were actualized after a decade (creepy). It made me think that Hollywood  scriptwriters must have some special connections with occult practitioners. The truth can be stranger than fiction.

The earth's axis moved twice on these dates - February 27, 2010 (8.8) and March 11, 2011 (9.0). These dates coincided with the alignment of ELENIN-Earth-Sun. The next alignment will be on the 26th/27th of this month. That means, another Major event will occur between Sep 22 - Oct 1. It can be a combination of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, meteors, etc.

I'm starting to believe that this 188/189 cycle theory is true. Again, it has been consistent with the Honshu EQ last week and the India/Tibet EQ on the 18th at magnitude 6.9. As much as I want to live for the moment, I cannot help but empower myself with these information. Some might brand it as fear-mongering info but they have been consistent on a scientific manner. 

I learned my lesson from Ondoy. This year, I already had 4 recurring dreams about earthquakes. Also, meteor showers but on a greater scale (destructive ones). If my dreams are warning me then I do not see any harm sharing them to anyone who will accidentally view this blog entry. I'm also seeing a pattern whenever something Big is about to happen - I get dizzy (usually for a day or two). I've been checked by several doctors and the results were normal. They just give me the usual meds for Vertigo - SERC/Cinnarizine. Two weeks before Ondoy happened, I couldn't touch my laptop's keyboard - I get electrocuted. It lasted for a week and had to go through Diabetes testing and radiation. Again, everything's normal.

I've always been a cynic/skeptic and I need to be very objective with everything. I guess, there are things that simply defy science. After years of searching, I'd like to believe that I've been experiencing DNA activation symptoms. For now, I'll still keep an open mind and observe. I'm absolutely not instilling fear to myself nor to others. Destiny comes to those who listen and Fate finds the rest. Learn what you can Learn. Do what you can Do. It won't hurt if you prepare.

Thanks a lot to 9Nania and Jades!!!

Pregnant Regine Belting @ Angeline Quinto's 1st Major Concert

For those who are curious as to how a pregnant Regine belts a song, here's a rare guesting in Angeline Quinto's first major concert at the Sky Dome. I sometimes feel that Angeline's vocal prowess is better than Charice'.

Thanks to  for sharing this video.

Pag-Ibig Nestle 100 Years Regine's New Commercial

I believe that this is just a teaser of Nestle's 100 years in the Philippine market. The entire commercial will be released on the 3rd of April. Can't wait to see it. Regine sang Pag-ibig in her wedding vow last December. I guess, a lot of people loved her version and this is her belting  version. Enjoy!

I ♥ U Pare

I ♥ U Pare will air on Feb. 7, 2011. At first, I was disappointed with the concept since it was from the movie Connie & Carla. It seemed that some Filipino TV writers lack inspiration and the necessary creative juices. 

As always, if you can't be original, you might as well innovate. I ♥ U Pare, I am assuming, will have a little bit of drama, action, musical and most of all comedy. I am expecting it'll be well accepted just like DIVA. A Pinoy teleserye won't be complete wthout a love story. So I guess, the character of Dingdong Dantes is part of the innovation process. One can never be complacent, so Big Stars and even Supernovas (actors & actresses who used to be popular) are needed to continuously entice the Filipino audience.

So after seeing the trailer, I guess, I'll enjoy watching Regine as a Drag Queen. Also, since Paolo Ballesteros is such a Queen, I am looking forward to the production numbers in this show. Paolo looks like Kristine Hermosa minus the Adam's apple or her twin sister. 

I was really shocked when I saw Lady Gagita's appearance in Wish Ko Lang. I didn't expect She will be easily forgotten. At least, I ♥ U Pare will revive her career. Also, it will give her a new source of income and hopefully inspiration. 

Instead of Regine looking like a Drag Queen, she looked more like Bozo the Clown. 

This is more Drag Queenish.

Choosing Vigan is one the best decisions the production of this show made.

Thanks to Kit Sherwin Cruz and to Lady Gagita!

Goodbye to Pulpy tations - Welcome Minute Maid

create an avatar

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe... I am slowly getting deceived by a marketing strategy that capitalizes on advertising hype.  We live in a generation where preservatives thrive. There's just no way that I am buying this misleading ad. Is it for real?

The only way to check it is to compare it with other juice drinks. I had to buy several drinks in the grocery and when I saw a real orange fruit, I bought it as well. I must have splurged a lot for this pulpy experiment. The only way to prove Minute Maid's claim is by doing a "Taste it - To believe It" test.

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I... was so relieved that I spent time and money for my "Taste it - To believe it" experiment. There may be fine prints but the ultimate proof would be my taste buds. Plus the long-term physical manifestations of this drink to my body.

I now have a better replacement for my favorite frap and green soy latte. It's about time I consider a healthy lifestyle. No more pulpitations and unnecessary  allergic reactions.

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means... that i can drink my Minute Maid Pulpy anytime I want. I don't have to worry about acid reflux, palpitations and high glucose. I can figuratively drown myself to this drink. Ü

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna buy a month's supply of this drink in replacement of my one month supply of my somewhat costly non-acidic Vitamin C. This will definitely prove a major breakthrough in fruit juice drinks in the market. A healthier drink with anti-oxidants that is so convenient to buy.

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)

2011 brings a new chapter to Regine's life. I am still wishing that the Songbird will have twins this year. Here's one of the vintage sketches done by Ritchie Nolasco. I usually call this Regine After Sex sketch (R2K magazine). This was an impromptu sketch as per my special request.

Regine and Ogie Onsite Wedding Video

I was really dismayed after watching the GMA special of the Ogie and Regine Wedding (A Duet to Forever). The first half was good while the rest was mediocre. The editing was poorly done that it didn't look like it's the Wedding of the Decade.

Now, after seeing the portfolio of Nice Print Photo's Onsite Wedding Videos, I had to change my opinion. It did look like it's THE Wedding of the Decade. It was so professionally done. The only flaw is the audio (referring to the mic used).

"It has to be one of the most beautiful weddings we have ever covered...." OGIE+REGINE official onsite wedding video by Nice Print Photo

Marry me today and every day, Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe... Say you will... say you will by TRAIN

I'm sure Marry Me will be one of the most favorite wedding songs in the coming years.

Regine and Ogie Wedding with the Queens

Regine and Ogie with the Queen of talk show Kris Aquino and the Queen of Comedy Ai-Ai de las Alas. There's really no stopping this power couple. This is what you get when you have good relationships and friendships in showbiz.

Regine and Ogie Wedding Prosperity Dance

The Regine and Ogie Prosperity dance that overflowed with 1,000 peso bills. It's a shame if somebody attaches a 500 peso bill or lower. Good people will always be blessed. More blessings!!! A baby will be the best wedding present. If I can only wish for twins since it's in Regine's genes. If that happens, she'll be like Celine and Mariah.

Regine and Ogie Wedding Giveaways

I really love the personalized ribbons used in Regine and Ogie's wedding giveaways. There's actually a wedding loot bag. I'm assuming that some of the tokens are their cds.

Regine and Ogie Wedding Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids

Sharing this sneak peek pic of this breathtaking view of The Peak means so much to Filipinos abroad who want to see the Regine and Ogie Wedding of the Decade. I'm sure Punta Fuego will be favored as an ideal wedding venue.
