Cartoon Me

Saw this picture on the net from the blog "Something Clever"  and I kinda think it looks like me.

Ok, so this is my blog and while you might disagree... I am the writer and you're just a reader :-)
And my opinion is never wrong because their mine.
In other words, "Payagan nyo na, minsan lang naman!"
What do you think?

Steve Jobs Quits

Steve Jobs is giving up every nerds and techies ultimate dream job as CEO of Apple due to health related reasons. Jobs, who has been suffering from cancer said in his statement “I have always said that if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.”


This means that when it comes to health, even the best and the brightest will give up everything.


I wish that Steve recovers from this and bounces back soon.


Though I don’t think the world needs another iphone.

Dr. House models L'Oreal

I recently learned that Hugh Laurie is the male face of L'Oreal.

In 3 letters: W-O-W

I

I have already gushed about how I love his character Dr. Gregory House from the TV series House.

He's smart, witty without trying too hard and sarcastic in an endearing way.

Overall, I think that he is one of our generation's best tv characters.

And it doesn't hurt that he has a lovable accent in real life too.

Again...WOW!

Another Win!

And the domination continues…
The Philippine Dragon Boat Team won 5 gold and 2 silver medals at the 10th World Dragon Boat Championship held at Tampa Bay, Florida.

Just a bit of history…
This same team has previously won two world titles in the International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF) competitions breaking world speed records.
That’s the strategy. Slowly, slowly conquering the world.

The Evolution of Chuck

I watched Chuck’s season ender with mixed feelings of happiness and regret. And while the wedding of Chuck and Sarah is considered by many as a culmination of their tumultuous relationship and a validation that nice guys do get the good girls (eventually), I still felt like it is the beginning of the end.



In tv series, they call it jumping the shark. As defined by Wikipedia:


Jumping the shark is an idiom, first employed to describe a moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. In its initial usage, it referred to the point in a television program's history where it has "outlived its freshness" where viewers feel "the writers have run out of ideas" and that "the series has [lost] what made it attractive." These changes were often the result of efforts to revive interest in a show whose audience had begun to decline.

Videos that Inspire

I saw these videos by Director Rick Mereki for Travel Australia. It is a combination of "3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage crammed into one epic minute based on food, movement, and learning."

These videos are called MOVE, EAT, LEARN. Please watch and be inspired (or envious).

World Domination 101

This one's for the nerds!

The Philippines won 2 awards in the recently concluded Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2011 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

Philippine teams from the University of the Philippines (UP) and Mapua Institute of Technology won both On-Track and Off-Track Awards.  

University of the Philippines’ Team UP won the Diesel Fuel Award for its UrbanConcept vehicle entry “Kidlat” while Mapua Institute of Technology was awarded the exemplary safety compliance during the competition, winning second place for the Safety Award.

Sports, Beauty, Singing and now Science? 
I think we are on our way to ruling the world.

Modern Fairytale Posters

I am a big fan of fairytales.  In fact, any story that ends with "and they live happily ever after" is a winner for me.  So I was so thrilled to discover an artist who combines classic fairy tales and modern minimalism. These posters of artist Christian Jackson was tinged with just the right amount of whimsy and cleverness to bring us back to old memories of our childhood.


See if you can guess their titles:
