True Blood & Scratches

So we found out from the beginning of this episode that Bill only glamoured Jessica's family. That's good, right? The only bad thing that came out of this is Sookie getting attacked by this new bull Minotaur character. Could this be related to Maryann?

Speaking of Maryann, what's going on with the guests with black eyes? This reminds me of a character in "Heroes" where everyone dies when that same thing happens.

I'm on Team Hoytica. They really look good together. Jessica was pretty in the bar scene.

Our dear Lafayette is still human. Am a bit disappointed. Did you catch Eric winking at him? It looks like there'll be a reunion somewhere down the road.

The scene where Jason was praying and Luke McDonald threw him a pillow was funny. Jason needs to get laid soon.

Am I the only one who jumped when Eric bared his fangs at Sookie? That scratch on Sookie's back is frickin' nasty. I wonder what happens to the victims of the Minotaur? Uhm, Sam, be careful, dog!

Transformers 2

Woke up to the sound of a very excited Lance. "Tito Dondon, 8 o'clock na!" He kept repeating that until I got up and stretched.

We left Bulacan at 9 o'clock. Not sure how bad the traffic is on a Sunday morning.

Lance has an issue with riding airconditioned buses. He gets dizzy and would eventually throw up. I don't want that to happen so I obliged. So we took jeepney rides and reached TriNoma at 11 in the morning.

We immediately went up to the 4th floor where the cinemas are located and got our tickets. I noticed that all 7 cinemas feature this latest Michael Bay film.

Since Lance hasn't eaten yet at Tokyo Tokyo, we went there to have our lunch. I got 2 tempura meals plus some beef misono. I also ordered some red iced tea which I'm sure he'll love.

Around 1, we bought Nacho cheese popcorn from Taters and iced tea. A big one for me (I didn't know this would come in handy later on). Then we looked for our seats. I got ourselves some La-Z-Boy seats and they were super comfy. Of course, I reclined my seat all throughout the movie.

During the desert scene where Prime was still dead and Megatron was chasing Sam & Mikaela, I noticed that Lance was squirming in his seat. Uh-oh. Not a good sign.

I didn't wanna miss the climax so I gave him my empty cup.

Otay, let's talk about the movie. What do I like about it? Uhm, the action scenes, of course. Bumblebee has been given his own fight scene. It was funny to see him crying too (he cried buckets!). But I thought he could already speak in the ending of the first Transformers?

Megan Fox was B-E-A-utiful. Oh, man, those lips!

Leo played by Ramon Rodriguez was useless in the film.

How come there's only one robot that can turn into a human being?

I couldn't distinguish the Autobots from the Decepticons when the planes were bombing the desert. And why is it that there are only a handful of Autobots when there are frickin' too many Decepticons?
I also don't understand why the old Decepticon plane (the one with the cane) was able to transport the peeps from the Air & Space museum to Egypt when he couldn't just grab them again in the desert and place them somewhere safe?
Lastly, don't waste your time waiting for the credits to stop. Nothing there at all!

MJ, Gone Too Soon

Been scared shitless after watching his Thriller music video. I've sung "Ben", "Got to Be There", "Music & Me", "One Day in Your Life", "Happy", and "Man in the Mirror" countless of times during videoke nights. I even saw him shout, "I love you, Manila!" when he staged a concert here years back.

I was shocked when Kuya broke the sad news to me during breakfast =o(

Back to School Salu-Salo

After the meeting with AsianLife, our health insurance provider, we dashed towards the pantry to enjoy some fried chicken, hotdog on a stick, baked macaroni, pichi-pichi, squid balls and chicken sandwiches. I spotted some sago gulaman too. I haven't tasted this in a frickin' long time!
Happy Birthday to all June celebrants (or should it be celebrators?):

Anbby, Aubrey, Chay, Onaks, Max, Meng, Mimi and WiIl.i.am

Techy Lola

This is a local commercial from BayanTel about an adorable (& techy) grandma who is scolding her grandson, JR, on cam. She complained that she kept superpoking her grandson in Facebook but he hasn't poked back. She also mentioned that JR's cousins in the US would sometimes forward videos from YouTube even.

Day One: No Soda Year

It just happened. At the end of the day, I thought, "Hmmm, interesting. I didn't drink any soda today!"

I remember years back that I was able to avoid drinking soda for two frickin' years. Yep. I've done it before so I know that I can do it again. Wish me luck!

Is There Blood in My Hair?

Quick warning: Don't watch this second ep while eating... especially during the scenes of Lafayette.

I like that the show focuses also on the adjustment period of a new vampire. I hope Bella of "Twilight" watches the show ;oP

I like the shopping scene where Eric was asking Bill about his new look. Watch our for Eric's reaction to the saleslady's comment. He really looks great with short hair! And that comment, "Is there blood in my hair? Pam is gonna kill me" is frickin' funny. Can he be more vain?!

Lafayette finally got his wish. I'm looking forward to seeing his vampire attitude.

Is it just me or the guys are mostly half-nekkid in this episode? Sookie is getting sexier/hotter too (with the short shorts & all). I miss Amy's character (Lizzy Caplan).

It's cute to see Sam transforms to a doggie. Even the dog looks scared at Maryann. But Maryann, I must say, looks fun to hang around with. The inhibitions disappear! She's like a walkin' breathin' ecstasy pill.

I like the scene where Sookie apologized to Jessica. I thought Jessica is gonna pounce on her ;oP


The Morning After

Woke up with a frickin' bad hangover. I went downstairs and looked for the nearest bathroom. Tried to puke but nuthing came out. Hate this feeling but it's the price I have to pay for drinking different types of alcohol last night/early this morning.

I found the couch and continued my sleep.

When I heard Nikks' voice telling me to eat brunch already. I woke up (still with headache) and went directly to the kitchen. Started making coffee. Ogz just woke up too (it's already 2 in the afternoon).

We ate Spam and eggs. I have no appetite but I had to eat sumpthin'.

Then shower was next. That did me good.

Some of the guys checked out the hacienda and had some fresh coconut-nut.

We bid goodbye to Joy's Tita around 3ish. Again, bad traffic on our way home.

Before heading back to Bulacan, we had lunch/dinner at Greenbelt. Nikks & I shared the batchoy and I got some barbecue.

Drink & Be Merry.. with Patron

With Joy behind the wheel of her dad's brand spanking new Fortuner, we left Makati around 8 pm. I rode shotgun while Nikks, Beng and Ogz sat comfortably at the back. Jojo & Raz and Freya & Turon brought their own cars. Jun is in another car with the Docs team (Jean, Olive and Bel). Jhe is driving her van with Onse, Robert & Heddy, Diomar and Mitch. We're a big group, needless to say.

Traffic was really bad. 'twas already almost midnight when we arrived at the hacienda. All I can say is the place is huge! When we went inside the big house, my jaw dropped when I saw the wooden furniture. They've got this couch fit for a giant! Found out later that the furniture were crafted by "Jose", one of the caretakers.
Joy then gave us a quick tour of the place. There are lotsa beds to choose from. I thought there were 10 rooms all in all. I dunno which one I'll end up using when I'm wasted later ;oP

I immediately setup the MagicSing while some peeps decided to take photos and some prepared the chips & drinks. Joy found Patron at Rams, a wine store at Pasay Road. She also informed me that you can also get cheap ones at PriceSmart (similar to Costco). We just love Patron. The bestest tequila ever!
The goal of the night is to get Diomar drunk. After the third tequila shot, he informed everyone that he's already pissed. That didn't stop Joy to pour him some more.
Freya, Ogz, Beng, Bel, Jean, Richard and I took turns at the microphone. Unforch, we only have one small teevee. The bigger one was transfered to the other house.
We drank Tequila, Tequila Rose, beer and rhum coke. Bad idea! I got wasted too early. I remember chatting with Jojo about something. I remember smoking a bit. I remember seeing Beng on the rocking chair sleeping. I also remember Jun and Nikks taking me upstairs to sleep ;oP
Next time, we plan to go back with Onaks, Karen and Jet (hear that?!). I promise NOT to mix and match drinks anymore. I woke up with a freakin' bad hangover the next day.

Typing Maniac

I keep seeing this in my Facebook status updates from my friends. Well, I thought, if they enjoy playing it, I'm pretty sure I will too. And so I tried it today.
The game is simple. You just need to pay attention to the words that fall and type it as fast as you can, before they pile up at the bottom. Did you pay attention to your Typing class in high school?

A game is supposed to be fun and not stressful so there are things that could help you out. Like, if you type the word "ICE", you'll see the words stopping in mid-air and go popsicle on you (this will buy you time so you can type 'em) or "FIRE" and you'll witness spontaneous combustion of words. There's also "SLOW" and "WIND".

After the game, you will be ranked amongst your friends. On my first try, I was 14th and now I'm 7th. Yay! I wanna play this with a nicer keyboard. I don't wanna ruin my MacBook Air ;oP
Newsflash: I actually reached the 6th place but the WiFi at the office decided to fail during the uploading of my score so I'm still at 7th place right now. Watch out, Freya!
