Pacman Rules!

2 comments

I've gone from a night-shift straight to watched the fight via Pay-Per-View on TFC. The whole gang of boxing aficionados filled the hall with cheers and excitement as we savour the victory of Pacman...(Wala ng aga-agahan pa, kape na lang ayos na...)

Mabuhay! 'Yan ang Pinoy!!!

"I know my people are celebrating right now. They're very happy!!"
- Manny Pacquiao

"It was a tough fight. I was tired of getting punched in the head .. I was just tired."
- Erik Morales

Referee Kenny Bayless brought a halt to the contest at 2:33 seconds of round 10, making the pride of the Philippines the first man to ever knock-out Erik Morales.

Manny Pacquiao proved that the Reyes gloves were in fact the key to victory, as he dominated Morales with crisp combinations, and sent him to the canvas twice in round 10, the second knock-down forced Bayless to bring an end to the contest.

Morales tried desperately to climb back into the fight, but was completely out of gas by the eighth round. Pacquiao jumped on Morales, and with his people urging him on, he did the impossible, and stopped the once unstoppable Erik "Terrible" Morales.

Pacquiao improves his record 41-3-2, and is looking possibly to a rubbermatch against Morales, who drops to 48-4.


The Seven Emirates and " It ".

Thousands of "genderless" expatriates are working in the UAE, according to a labour official compiling statistics on the 2005 labour market.

Around 14,000 expatriate workers in the UAE have no known gender, said Dr Khalid Al Khazraji, labour undersecretary at the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.

"They are registered under 'it'," he said.


Let sing and play the gender game!!!
It, it, bopit banana fanna bofit fifi momi it....oh sh*t!!!


Isang paghahambing

Ano nga ba?
Napanood mo ba ang pelikulang Dubai? Ano ba sa iyo ang mensahe ng kwento, sabi ng iba ito'y kwento ng pagmamahalan at pag-asa , ang iba naman ay nagsasabing ito'y ordinaryo at wala namang bago sa tema nito, at sa mga radikal ang pagiisip ito'y nagbibigay ng maling senyales at anyo ng Dubai maling-mali daw talaga. Ano nga ba sa pagkakaalam ng isang ordinaryong Pilipino.

Halina't atin itong ihambing..

Sa Ilaw...
Ako'y napadpad sa bansang ito anim na taon na ang nakalipas na puno ng pag-asa at punong-puno ng pangarap...sa totoo lang di lahat ng pangarap ko'y natupad ngunit dito ko sinimulan ang mga nais ko sa buhay. Konti pa lang kung susumahin ang lahat ng ito. Tulad din ng isang gamu-gamo na naakit sa liwanag ng ilaw ako'y nakipagsapalaran at heto pa rin nakikibaka sa takbo ng buhay upang buoin ang nasimulang pangarap. Ngunit di lahat ng naakit sa kinang ng Dubai ay pinalad, may mga napaso at minalas, may ilan din namang nagwagi at di lumapit masyado at magpalamon sa dingas ng apoy. Parang sugal kung tutuusin ang kapalaran ng tao dito.

Sa Gamu-gamo...
Kamakailan lamang ay inihayag sa telebisyon ang modus-operandi ng mga sindikatong bumibiktima sa mga nais magpunta sa Dubai/UAE. Ikinukubli sa likod ng Visit Visa ang pangakong agarang trabaho at ginhawa ng buhay. Ngunit sa bandang huli ay isang malaking panloloko at pandaranbong lamang sa kapwa Pilipno ang lahat matapos maibenta, maisanla ang mga ari-arian at mabaon sa pakakautang para lamang makarating sa Ilaw na inaasam.

Ang sa ganang akin ay isang babala lamang "kabayan 'wag kang isang gamu-gamung tatanga-tanga, huwag sugod ng sugod bagkus ay maging isang gamu-gamung matalino. Maging mapagmasid at wag mag-atubiling di magduda ika nga eh "some things are to good to be true".

Uri ng gamu-gamo sa Dubai/UAE
1. Gamu-gamong opisina at kalakaran
2 Gamu-gamong ospital at clinics
3. Gamu-gamong eskwelahan
4. Gamu-gamong hypermarket at malls
5. Gamu-gamong hotel & restaurant
6. Gamu-gamong freezones, industrial areas at drydocks
7. Gamu-gamong katulong sa bahay
8. Gamu-gamong freelancer (nag-ca-carlift, bumili ng sariling visa, madiskarte)
9. Gamu-gamong kung umasta sheika (ah taas kamay ko sa mga to! )
10.Gamu-gamong baon sa utang (walang maipadala sa pinas,may loan at credit card na binabayaran )
11.Gamu-gamong mababa ang lipad (siguro)
12.Gamu-gamong inip, ligaw, walang patutunguhan, sabik atbp.
13.Gamu-gamong Visit-visa (mapalad, naloko, umaasa)
14.Gamu-gamong Kish Island (stranded)
15.
Gamu-gamong Rehas (nasa piitan sa iba't ibang kadahilanan)

Ikaw saan ka nabibilang?

Wave 1: Konica Minolta to Exit Camera Business

Konica Minolta Holdings said Thursday it will pull out of its money-losing camera business and will sell part of a plant, development knowledge and other assets for digital cameras to Sony.

Instead, the company will focus on technologies that don't cater directly to consumers, such as optics, copiers, medical equipment and device parts used for displays.

Wave 2: Time up for camera film? Nikon turns to digital

TOKYO -- Nikon, the iconic Japanese camera maker, has put another nail in the coffin of traditional photography with plans to stop selling most of its film models in favor of hot-selling digital cameras.
Nikon said it will end production of all but two of its eight single-lens reflex (SLR) analogue models and axe all of its non-digital compacts, signalling the end of its more than 50 year history of selling film cameras.

Sales will end when stocks run out - news that could trigger a rush by camera buffs to snap up the remaining ones. Experts believe the days of conventional film cameras are now numbered.


Better grab and hold on to your old conventional SLR cameras for it will be a treasure in the future and it's extinction is imminent..


Toy Story

1 comments

She was sexy and smooth. Her curves was perfect for the hands no matter how big your plan is. Touching her makes you nervous, but it awakens the monster inside you that has been sleeping for a while. The moment I touched her flashes of ideas came into my mind like never before. I was confused what to do first and I was afraid to blew my first shot. So there I was holding her firmly, looking through her eyes, adjusting my grip, focusing to the beauty of nature. I squeeze her curves, holding her tightly, afraid that she might fall. I found my target and slowly pressed my pointy finger, she made a noise and adjusted the position. I pressed again, this time she was quiet not moving a bit. I sensed she is ready and with no second thoughts I pressed her fully. She made a sensual sound that can make someone not to stop. But I have to, I have to see the result. I don't want it to be a dry one. I want it to be full of life, as if it has been sprinkled by drizzling rain. I want her to be happy, ecstatic and she was.

Now what kind of toy were you thinking?

It's a new Canon EOS 350D Kit w/1GB CF Card ( promo for Dubai deferred Shopping Festival). For now, lemme' fiddle with my new toy...But I guess I have a lot of reading, experiment & self study on photography. Thinking of joining a club though to ease things up.
