GMA 7 present the new Darna

originally uploaded by starDust88.
Following the phenomenal success of its first telefantasya Mulawin, which soared to incredible heights in popularity and viewership ratings throughout its two-season run, GMA-7 offers another fantasy series that will surely delight Filipinos of all ages. Flying to every Filipino home starting April 4 is no other than the original Pinay superhero DARNA!

Created by Mars Ravelo more than five decades ago and presently serialized in Mango Comics, Darna remains to be the most popular and most revered Filipino super hero who, more than being a household name, has become a Pinoy icon of extraordinary strength and principle for all ages. This remarkable character has crossed over generations and multi-media (from comic books to movies and the Internet, to television now) and remains to be the most desired role to be portrayed by the country's premier actresses.

Donning the famous two-piece outfit and crown of valor in GMA-7's presentation of the modern-day Darna is Angel Locsin, who is indisputably one of this generation's most sought-after young actresses. After spreading her wings and conquering the sky as Alwina in the recently concluded telefantasya Mulawin, Locsin flies anew as Darna bestowed this time with super-human strengths and soaring past the heavens to the universe beyond. Locsin also plays Darna's pure-hearted alter-ego Narda, a teenage market vendor who keeps the precious white stone of Planet Marte.

Equally overwhelming as Darna's superpowers is the primetime fantasy series' powerhouse cast. Joining Angel Locsin in Darna are Ms. Celia Rodriguez, who plays the Queen of Darkness Braguda; Eddie Garcia as the Insect King Mambabarang; Christopher De Leon as the evil surgeon Dr. Zombie; Carmina Villaroel as the disastrously fiery Sulfura; Cristine Reyes as the formidable Molecula; and Alessandra de Rossi as the snakewoman Valentina, Darna/Narda's mortal enemy who is also a super model. Appearing in special roles are Lorna Telentino as Adran (leader of the Adranika race in Planet Marte) and Lani Mercado as Narda's kind-hearted mother. Tonton Gutierrez plays the role of Narda's loving and hard-working father while Dennis Trillo is Efren, Narda's childhood sweetheart.

Completing Darna's stellar cast are Maureen Larrazabal, Caridad Sanchez, Karen Delos Reyes, Wendell Ramos, Jacque Estevez, Ella Guevara, Jeremy Marquez, Ms. Gina Pareño, CJ Muere, Ryza Cenon, and Francis Magindayao. The young Narda is played by Rasha Mae Manantan.

Directed by Eric Quizon and Dominic Zapata, Darna premieres on April 4 (Monday) and airs weeknights on GMA-7's Telebabad Block.

After giving it some thought I've decided to pursue a career outside the Philippines. I'm thinking of applying for a job in Dubai UAE, New Zealand, Australia, or Canada.

I need your advise guys or possible help in pointing me to the right direction... If you know someone or an agency that could help me land a job outside the country please let me know. My priority is Dubai since my sister will be working there by May or June and would like to follow her. I would love to get a job in the airline or hotel industry, hopefully by the end of the year.

Pa-coño effect...

Don't you just hate it when you go to bars / clubs and get to hear people trying hard to converse in english just to be regarded as someone who is "coño" or "sosyal".

Overheard in fuckin' coño places with fuckin' pa-coño people:

Employee1 : Yeah,its really good there.but its like a market,and you choose fresh fishes.
Employee2 : Really?its like palengke?
E1 : yeah,its like palengke
E2 : Is dirty the place?
(huh,ano daw?)
Girl : I hate him! He really makes me init ulo!!!!
(duh….!!!! Whatever!!!)

Boy : Its not working? Why don’t you make pindot pindot here? (referring to a faulty computer)

E1 :Gosh!grabe naman this emails you send me!its really gross!its really kadiri!!!
(and this is a GUY talking!)

E1 : You wanna come with me to glorietta for lunch?
E2 : Kasya ba tyo sa kotse mo?
E1 : Small nga lang my car eh!!!
(wow…sana naman you make ayos your language man….)

G1 : Come on!lets buy nah….
G2 : Ok basta you make me pila!
G1 : Ok ill make you pila basta you make me bili ha.
(dumb …..)

Moral lesson: Try to be yourself... if you do need to converse in English please make sure not to mix filipino and english in one sentence cause it doesn't sound good. Better yet why not try speaking in Filipino? If you have nothing good or interesting to say just keep quiet. No one wants a social climber.


A call to all SUN Cel users

Sun Cel 24/7
Sun Cel 24/7,
originally uploaded by starDust88.
If you are currently enjoying the unlimited call and text being offered by Sun Cel then this is for you.

Recently the two bigger telecom companies started offering similar services that Sun started after the two tried stopping Sun from offering such services to it's subscribers.

I really didn't think that Smart and Touch Mobile (a subsidiary of Globe Telecoms) will offer the same / similar service to their subscribers but then again I guess I was also expecting it due to the fact that Sun really did affected their sales...

I just want to say this and I want you guys to think about it... Yes Sun's network sometimes gets congested and sometimes you don't get to receive text messages on time, but then again for a minimum of 350 you get free call and text for one month which is not bad and it works for me. Anyway there's no perfect network. Remember back in 2000 when Globe's network was so bad SMS / Text message sending is normally delayed an average of 4 to 6 hours and placing a call was a joke? What if all SUN subscribers switch to these two networks? What if SUN can no longer offer the service due to a small number of subscribers because everyone switched to Globe and Smart? Then the two giants can stop the unlimited service and just say that it was a promo... at least SUN kept it's promise that this is not just a promo and that their service is here to stay.

What do you guys think?

Robots Funny and Heartwarming

originally uploaded by starDust88.
The story revolves around Rodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor), a wannabe-inventor leaving his family home in Rivet Town to head for the bustling metropolis of Robot City, where he plans to get a job under gadget mogul Bigweld (Mel Brooks). The only problem is, when he finally gets there he finds out that the big industry isn't all it's made out to be on the telly, and not long after he finds himself in trouble with a powerful enemy in the shape of corporate executive Ratchet (Greg Kinnear).

Although the story is not very original the idea of robots interacting with each other and dealing with daily problems humans ecounter is still worth watching plus there are a number of funny scenes in this movie that everyone would surely enjoy.

There's been so much care and attention put into building this movie... from the robot world down to it's inhabitants... a favorite scene of mine was the dominos scene which would definitely make you wonder how many days it took them to create that scene.

'Robots' is not perfect, but it's very well presented and - most importantly - a lot of fun.

I will give it 4 out of 5 stars

Mario Vazquez quits American Idol?

Mario Vasquez
Mario Vasquez,
originally uploaded by starDust88.
This is a repost from another bulletin...

In the most shocking exit ever from a reality TV show, Mario Vazquez has quit American Idol 4, leaving stunned fans gasping for answers. Mario Vazquez is not the first person to quit a popular reality TV show or even the first person to quit American Idol. In the past, both Survivor and The Apprentice have had contestants quit during the middle of the competition. Earlier this season American Idol even had its first contestant quit, Marlea Stroman quit because of the stress of being away from her son. What is so shocking about Mario Vazquez quitting is that he was actually a serious contender to win the most popular reality TV show on the air. Previous exits from reality TV shows have usually occurred early in the competition by contestants who probably knew they were longshots to win anyway. Mario Vazquez on the other hand left after making it into the top 12 American Idol finalist. The official Fox press release states Mario Vazquez left for "personal reasons." Speculation of why Mario really left is running rampant on many message boards and theories range from family problems to something to do with Michael Jackson (Mario Vazquez previously sang back-up for Michael Jackson). Assuming that the press release is correct and Mario did leave for personal or family reasons, his departure is likely to shine an even bigger spotlight on whatever those personal or family reasons are. In this age of blogs and message boards, speculation will run rampant until all the details are made public.

Mario Vazquez Quits, Nikko Smith Back In

Breaking News... Fox just issued a press release that Mario Vazquez has quit the American Idol 4 competition. No reason other than that Mario Vazquez withdrew for "personal reasons" is given in the press release. Mario Vazquez will be replaced by Nikko Smith. Nikko Smith and Travis Tucker were the last two eliminated male singers in the American Idol 4 competition, and since Nikko Smith received more votes that Travis Tucker during last week's competition, he was selected to take Mario's place. Nikko Smith re-joins the competition immediately and will compete as a member of the Top 12.

My Dilemma

I’ve noticed lately that I’ve been getting different comments from friends who I haven’t seen me for a while regarding my weight…

Well I was very fat before until I noticed I was losing weight back in my college years when I moved out of my parent’s place to live on my own… I guess the pressure of my studies have good benefits after all. Hehehe! Anyway it didn’t stop there after getting a job I went to the gym and started losing extra pounds so I guess during that time around 2002 I was really proud of myself for losing too much weight but late last year when I stopped working out due to a number of reasons like work, rakets, parties, busy sched, tinatamad attitude I started to gain a few pounds back. Well happy to tell you guys I started going back to the gym again ready to continue the fight to get in shape.

But since I stopped going to the gym I now get different comments from my friends? Some would say I lost weight and some would say I gained a few here and there… Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! I’m so confused now but I guess the best thing to do is to continue working out… Anyway if you guys have any tips on how to get that nice set of abs I need your help… desperately. Anyway I love my friends… they serve as my mirror and I value their comments and suggestions to help improve myself. Speaking of friends I was in Tia Maria’s yesterday with my new found friends from Ateneo Pow Zantillan, Steph, Jo, Ana, Angel and Boom with his gang from CSB and John Lozano from UP who dropped by to say hi. I really felt like I was back in my college days hanging out with college barkada and it felt really good. Hope to see you guys again… By the way thanks to Boom for saying I lost 10 lbs easy from the last time he saw me at Fitness First Eastwood or I guess it’s because he’s just drunk… Peace bro! :)

In Tamil: Ayan is the name of Brahma, the Creator. It also mean Shepherd

Ayan is also a form of African drumming

Ayan in Turkish, means "obviously" or "clearly"

Ayan [Urdu/Persian.] with the last 'n' not pronounced fully... but half i.e. nasal tone sound..)... means something that is open and clear /something like : "something vividly clear on the face of it" or prima-facie.

In Somalia Ayan means "the lucky one". However in Somali Ayan is the female form of the name, and Ayanle is the male form.

Do you know any other meaning? Please let me know.


Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby
Million Dollar Baby,
originally uploaded by starDust88.
In the midst of a painful separation from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn has been disposed to letting himself get close to anyone for a very long time unwilling to let anyone come into his life again--then came Maggie Fitzgerald into his gym and his life.

In a life of constant struggle and a world that has never been kind, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her as she believes in herself that she can make it big someday.

Last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility-- let alone that kind of risk--but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on. In turns annoying and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that go beyond the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, in the middle of finding each other they both face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known.

I'll give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the invite and may all your wishes come true. Hopefully you find true happiness and satisfaction in life.
