Durex condom commercial February 5, 2009

I was listening to the radio on the way to Makati City Hall when I heard the commercial asking for volunteers for condom testing. I don’t know if I heard it right, but is that for real? They’re also giving out cash prize or something. For what?

Will the couples get a truckload of condoms to test? How will the test be recorded? What are they trying to measure? How will a couple qualify or get disqualified?

I would love to know how this works out.

I do not like explaining why I am skipping class. Haha. I think I can do that. But maybe I ask people the reason too, that’s why I can be asked.

I love coffee, but it makes my tummy hurt sometimes, well most of the time. That is why I always have to eat something while drinking it. Pandesal.

Coffee does not make me lose sleep. I can drink it one minute, and be asleep the next one. However, it does make waking up easier especially if I have to wake up early.

I have episodes of cleaning frenzy. I throw things that I can still use when I am in this mood.

I am moody, extremely moody.

I dream of swimming.

I really really want to learn to play tennis.

I really want to become a Triathlete (I know how to swim, bike and run –  I think that’s the requirement. The endurance is what I have to train for.)

I miss my family back home. Life is easier and less stressful there too.

I love pandesal. Especially the ones back home.

Sometimes I still ask myself whether law is for me.

I hate it that I feel insecure sometimes, without any trigger or anything.

Goat detained over armed robbery January 27, 2009

True. See it here.

Imagining how the interrogation went just makes me crack up. And where did they lock him up? In a separate cell, or was he together with the human inmates? Some might complain of special treatment. He might even get a special food, made specifically for him. I hear some people in the same jail as him already complaining.


Pictures of the week January 24, 2009

These are amazing pictures that I just have to share.

This is from one of my favorites sites, Big Pictures. Breathtaking. I love seeing how God expresses himself through nature.

This one’s courtesy of Kottke.org, this a 100 meter photo. Yes, 100 meter, taken from the same spot over a 20 day period. Really cool. And I like the title as well, We’re all gonna die – 100 meters of existence.

Daily Routines. This is one of the blogs I follow. It is composed of the daily daily routines of creative people like painters, writers etc. As I read through the entries it shows that they had a routine in what they did, at least most of them. They had also time to do things that was not related to their work . Mark Batterson also said something about the new book of Malcolm Gladwell where he stresses the importance of practice for one to be successful. I agree. I have written about this in the past that success, in whatever field, is primarily due to hard work and hours spent honing ones craft or skill. This is true for athletes and also writers and painters. I also think this applies to all people in all fields. For one to be successful, there’s no substitute to practice. And genetics as well, it plays a part too.

Pedestrian accidents August 27, 2008

When I am driving along Commonwealth Avenue, I am usually expecting that a few people would make a mad dash from the other side of the street to the isle of the road. They can actually challenge Usain Bolt and make a run for his money, because they can run 100m in 10 seconds or less, because unlike Usain Bolt, they do not run for the gold, but they run for their lives. That must be exciting.

I would say that if one of them gets run over by a vehicle, a bus maybe (insert some sick enjoyment out of the sight of that), I will blame the pedestrian. Not the bus. The pedestrian. Or maybe the moon?
