Pintados de Pasi 2010

Pintados de Pasi is a commemorative festival when the municipality of Passi became the first component city in the Province of Iloilo with the signing of R.A. 8469 by President Fidel V. Ramos. It has a touch of legend and history showing the way of life, work, rites and celebrations of the early Panayanon. Pintados because of the tattoos that covered their body.

Beauty and Madness

Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez won the Miss Universe 2009 beauty pageant held in Nassau, Bahamas today. I woke up late but I was still able to watch the question and answer portion of the pageant. The girls were smart, but not that smart. But back to the topic of my post, after watching Miss Venezuela win again this year it made me do some research about the supposedly beauty pageant school they have in Venezuela. I have heard of Osmel Sousa before but I just read more about him today. I stumbled upon some stuffs on my googling and I want to post them here in my blog. I have already shared this on my FaceBook and Plurk accounts and so far the responses I’ve received are not that nice – as I expected it would be. LOL. Tell me want you think as well guys!

What did I do?

Okay I just received an email from a Mother of a blogger who frequents this blog. I don’t want to mention this blogger’s name because I don’t want to fire up her mother. I understand her mother’s sentiments but I just want to clear a few things up. And I don’t want to reply to her email too because she’s “keeping a close watch” and my email address has been “blocked to date.” And again – I don’t want to make an enemy of someone’s Mom.

What I've Been Up To Lately..

I don’t have the time or the inspiration to write just about anything so here are photos of all the stuffs that I’ve been up to lately. We checked out the Dinagyang celebration at the city, photos with my cousins at the hospital when Drix had his operation, a Year of the Ox (my year!!) bracelet from my bebeh, random photos of my so loved bebeh and as promised – the long overdue photos of my ear piercing!

My last party night with the Callboxers!

Last Saturday night we went to Ryan’s to check out Rockathon – a battle of the bands activity sponsored by the Xbox committee of Callbox. I realized that this was going to be the last party I’ll attend as a Callbox employee. I have resigned and my last day is going to be on the 4th of November. But I haven’t been to the office for a week now. I kind of miss my friends – especially Shey but I don’t miss being a telemarketer! Thank God I’m over that.

unwinding with Bob Marley's Three Little Birds

I know Robert “Bob” Nesta Marley died even before I was born ( I was born 1985, Marley died 1981) but it doesn’t hinder me from admiring his music, opinions and beliefs. He’s a good man. He was born to a white English Jamaican father and a black Jamaican mother.
