———–

So how do I score? Yikes, u might think, either, I’m too bored to kill time or I am too boring to have read most of the classics, huh?! Read most of Tolkeins, all of Austen’s, most of Elliot’s and Fitzgerald’s, most of Dicken’s and Tolstoy’s, even Hugo’s. I probably own half of these classics.

Siguro naman after seeing some of my collections here, e, convinced naman kayo? Hahaha….

(partida yan,nde pa complete at updated yan! ADDICT, e!!!)

Feedback-Reaction

I am flattered dahil marami ang nag-e-email saken na hindi ko kilala.  Nakaktuwa because it’s indicative that some people took time to really read my blog. Feeling columnista tuloy ang lola ninyo. Pero i-se-share ko ung email nung 1 tao na sobrang naloka ako. Medyo i-e-edit ko na ung content.

 

Janisluvj,

Elow! I am so aliw with ur blog. Nakakatuwa kc very informative and funny siya. Well, I am a college student. And I’m starting to get annoyed na with my pimple. Like you hindi den naman ako grabe mag-break out pero lately napansin ko, ang dami at ang lalaki na nila. Ask ko lang kung gumaling ung acne mo dati? Anong ginawa mo ate?

Sincerely,

Gitah, 19 y/o

 

Gitah,

‘Lam mo neng, feeling beauty editor naman ako dito. ‘Lam kong na-send-an na kita ng feedback pero gusto ko pa deng i-publish ito. Well, gumaling naman ako. FYI sa lahat, hindi ako gumamit ng Proactiv, ang mahal kasi. Gumamit ako ng ACNESOL line ng HBC. Pareho sila ng amoy ng Proactiv pero hindi ko alam kung pareho ng content. Basta, nag-try lang naman ako. Awa ni Lord, gumaling naman. Nung nag-dried up na lahat ng pimples, I used Olay Total Effects para mag-lighten ung dark marks. Hindi na naulit ung grabeng salanta ng acne na ‘un, though I still have break outs every now and then due to PMS.

Thanks ulit sa pagbasa ng blog ko.

Janis

Sex vid,scandals,etc..

Gossip sells. If you happen to be a celebrity, dirty gossip sells better. But, I think scandals sell the best. 

Kung ako kay Katrina, I won’t cry. Why, the doctor in that vid is unrecognizably a monster, a dirty pig who knows and does nothing but cheapen and destroy other’s lives. Saka, who’s not having sex? I mean, meron ba talgang malinis na tao? I think her scandal was just sensationalized simply because she’s one of the hottest youngstars today and the pig/mouse/ monster in that vid happened to be the beau of the “Doctor of the stars”. Kung ako sa kaniya, I would take legal actions instead of patulan ang walang kuwentang lalaking ito, kung tao nga bang maituturing ang siraulong doctor na to! Kung talgang nagmahal si Katrina, it’s just so sad that she fell for the wrong, very wrong guy- no one can blame her. Afterall, hindi naman siya ang nag-record ng vid. And even if she happened to give consent for the act to be recorded, at least hindi siya ang nagkalat.

Nakakalungkot lang na isang supposedly licensed doctor played God and thought he’s licensed enough para manira ng buhay! Duh, he’s not even GIFTED, duh, not ENDOWED. He is just purely maniac, sex-staved maniac at that! Sana naman dahil sa unethical and immoral behavior na to eh maparusahan si Hayden. Tanggalan yan ng lisensiya!!!

Kay Dr. Belo, naku, ma’am, wake up. Ilang scandal ba ang gusto mo pang mapanood na lumabas para matauhan ka? Ilang ulit ka ba dapat gaguhin para magising ka? Or baka naman meron din kayo at bina-blackmail ka lang ng walang kuwentang bf mo? I hope, ardently hope that you won’t stand with your pig of a boyfriend. Kawawa ka kasi! Kawawang kawawa!

Close Up Commercial

When I first saw the ad, the music captivated me… Ganda kasi kaya hindi ako napakali until I was able to get the MP3.  The ad was about two people walking in a market. Then suddenly they found each other and fell in love instantly. The presence of the bubbles was also apt.

 Eto ung song…

 Come closer by iklan

Come closer
Come closer
Come closer to me now
Can’t wait any longer
Come closer to me now

Ah hoo what you do to me X2

I can feel you in the air
When it’s like you’re everywhere
And the world can disappear
Just as long as you are near

Your smile is my whole world
Come closer to me now
I’ve waited forever
Come closer to me now

Ah hoo what you do to me X2

Now you got me in your spell
It’s the best I’ve ever felt
Feel you breathing in my soul
Cause I know you’re heaven sent

Take all of my senses
Come closer to me now
I’ve got no defenses
Come closer to me now

A hoo what you do to me
