June 2007

It’s my Dad’s birthday tomorrow, but the party was last night at the fabulous Club Mwah along Boni Avenue in Mandaluyong, amidst the razzle of their Bedazzled 7 production – the latest installment of the series dubbed Follies De Mwah.

The Vegas showgirl (err, showgay?) styled musical production featured campy-sexy numbers from Cats, Madame Butterfly, West Side Story, Victor Victoria (to name a few), a twisted Little Mermaid meets Titanic spoof – and even a special guest appearance by Tina Turner, who teased my Dad with a bit of a lapdance! Haha! Stupid me wasn’t able to catch it on camera. Very entertaining work by Pocholo Malillin and Cris Nicolas. Bravo!

Aking nahukay sa isang maalikabok na karton sa isang sulok ng aking silid ang luma kong kwaderno sa Filipino II (sa patnubay ni Ginoong Talegon) noong ako’y nasa mataas na paaralan sa Claret School noong Setyembre 1994. Ito ang nilalaman ng unang pahina:

Makikilala mo ang taong may bait sa kilos ng kamay at buka ng bibig.

Isara lahat nang nakabukas,
Ibukas lahat nang nakasara.


starcraft_terran_marine.jpgStarCraft II, the sequel to the award-winning real-time strategy game StarCraft (initially released for Microsoft Windows in 1998), was announced last month, on May 19, 2007, at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Seoul, South Korea.

Haha! Where else!? I remember my friends and I used to pwn the asses of Koreans over Battle.net at (the original location of) BlueSkies, Katipunan back in the day.

Then they started to pwn us. I guess they got fed up of us pwning them so they practiced 24 hours a day. Maybe just like that poor sod who collapsed and died of a heart attack in 2005 after “refusing to leave his keyboard while he played the battle simulation game Starcraft” non-stop for 49-50 hours. Tsk tsk.

Anyway, according to StarCraft2.com, “At this point, it’s too early to provide an initial estimate on the release date.”

Dig the official cinematic trailer below:


Here are some more of those t-shirts, dug up photos from 2004-2005:

Fantastic Four, Venom / black Spider-Man, and Astroboy!

image389.jpgDon’t let the frown fool you. Last night. Saturday. Driver-mode. My Mom. Tita Mousie. At Pilita’s restaurant bar again. Greenhills, San Juan.

Filling food. Real music, like “Some Enchanted Evening” and “Seventh Dawn”. Broadway. Tito Linc and daughter Francine duet. Master pianist Pros (not Prospero, but Proseso) is a chemical engineer.

Got more acquainted with the bar. Vodka mix. San Miguel Pale Pilsen.

Ever-present are German “Kuya Germs” Moreno and owner Pilita Corrales – “Asia’s Queen of Songs”. Last time I was there, Vina Morales. Surprisingly petite, but very fit. Can probably kick my ass.

Competition has driven LCD monitor prices down somewhat, but models by trusted and competent brands like NEC, AOC, and Samsung are still very much on the pricey side. Like any prized and/or expensive item, you would naturally want to protect it from damage and make sure it lasts. Common everyday foes of LCD monitors are dust, dirt, scratches and finger oil (to say the least) from poke-happy fiends.

For my 19″ AOC 193FW LCD monitor, most protectors available online sell for US $59 to US $138 or Ph P2,700 to Ph P6,300! Pretty steep! On the high side, that’s already around the price of a 17″ CRT monitor. No, thank you.

Below are photos of the unboxing peeling (?) and minor installation of the LCD monitor protector I got last night from TipidPC.com. Made of clear acrylic plastic a.k.a. plexi-glass, it cost just Ph P500 or a little over US $10!
