May 2007

The expected midnight 30-minute-or-less drive from Boni Avenue in Mandaluyong to the Domestic Airport in Pasay took two grueling hours! Thanks to Murphy’s Law. At first, we thought it might have been due to yet another stroke of genius in roadworks by the MMDA, but were proven wrong when we finally passed the cause of our ire (and that of a million other motorists behind us).


We caught our end of the traffic jam shortly after exiting the Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road) tunnel on EDSA. Within the first hour, traffic must have been backed up all the way past Ayala Avenue and Buendia Avenue – maybe even up to Estrella (Rockwell) or even Guadalupe.

Check out the photos I was able to take using my crap camera phone while finally being able to drive squeeze past the cause of the incident.


may25-2.jpgEventhough today was spent just like any other weekday, with me having been up all night at work, coming home just to zoom off again to run household errands while fending off drowsiness, then making it back to the house to eat, do some laundry, watch a DVD, and finally catch some Z’s for yet another night shift at work, there is a lot for me to be thankful for:

  • I turned 29 today
  • My Dad was discharged from the hospital last week and is recovering at home
  • His post-op tests are negative for traces of the evil cancer that plagued him
  • Mom left for Cebu two days ago, is getting R&R (and so are we at home)
  • In Medal of Honor Airborne, you can choose to land anywhere in the combat space which means infinite variation in how you beat the mission! As the enemy moves out, battle lines can form anywhere. So enemy postions are different every time.

    This latest installment in the MOH series promises to be kickass with a new twist. To be released on August 28, 2007. Check out the trailers and in-game action below:


    Check out Joseph, the beatbox sensation of Nouvelle Star 2007 (Season 5). The show is a French reality television show based on the popular British show Pop Idol. It’s like ze French counterpart of the more popular American Idol.

    How many sets of vocal chords does this guy have?! He breezes (or should I say spits?) through selections like Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean”, Usher’s “Yeah!”, some Pharrel Williams, Diana Ross, Yoshimoto, Rahzel and Jay-Z in the audition videos below.


    A small study sponsored by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute has found that exposure to blue light helps fend of drowsiness at night, keeping you alert.

    I’ve read that the color green is the most eye-pleasing. Maybe a combination of both blue and green light would be easier on the eyes while keeping us awake? That’s what I’ve had in my room for years now and it seems to work well enough.

    There’s much more than meets the eye to how we perceive light, researchers have learned in recent years. The latest revelation: blue light helps fend off drowsiness in the middle of the night.

    A small study of 16 volunteers found that exposure to short-wavelength light, or blue light, perked them up immediately.
