Yahoo Mail Beta and Strain Limits

Have you tried the new Yahoo! Mail Beta? Many say it is slowww, but hey, i love ajax, i love the interface. I've been dreaming to operate MS Outlook. Well, it (Yahoo!Mail) looks like it (Outlook), isn't it. And one more thing, I don't have to switch to Gmail and then back to Y!Messenger (along with its never-ending sign-in processes). In case you don't know how to access the Yahoo! Mail Beta, well, it's a trade secret.

i'm in somber mode because after a fruitful decade, one of our basin (palanggana) has gotten its yield strain, and its brittleness formed a crack. And what a coincidence, my shades has gotten its yield strain too. Not just one holder cracked, but two! (Anyway, I promised myself not to wear a tight-fitting shades anymore...) Good thing, it's so tight, it still fits, and does not slide down.

X-men Bloopers

WTF is spidey doing here?

Linguists call for 'Da Vinci Code' ban

amf! riding the bandwagon. (tumira ng rugby itong president ng MALAS! hahaha!)
at hindi pa natatapos dyan! a week after, yung Harry Potter book 7 naman ang pinag-tripan. Alam mo kung bakit? Dahil sa word na "Potter" na ibig sabihin (daw!) ay adik-durugista!

Hindi lang pala sa Pilipinas may mga sira ulo! hahaha!

Baka sabihin nyo nag-iimbento ako, article sa News Straits Time ito, May 4. Kaya lang, (ngunit! sa kasamaang palad!) pinagkakakitaan nila ang archives. Tinatangal nila yung more than one week old.

X-men Personality Test

Tagal na ako nag-online surveys. super korny, kaya hindi ko na pino-post. yung mga tipong "What jeans are you?," "What shoes are you?" Yuck! Eh me nadaanan ako ngayon, nakaka-relate ako, X-men eh.. Try nyo rin..

You scored as Wolverine. Wolverine is a loner, and a skilled fighter. He's got the hots for Jean Grey but a better fit for him would be Storm. He doesn't like to follow orders which pisses Cyclops off. He has terrible memories from the experimentation done on him at Weapon X. Even though he doesn't show it, he loves the X-Men. Powers: Fast healing and adamantium skeleton and claws.

Movie Meme

Di ko na kinaya mag-English. Pagod na ako kakatingin sa English-Tagalog dictionary. At ngayon, nasali na rin ako sa pag-fill up ng mga meme. Teka, ano ba ang meme? According to the Mirriam-Webster's dictionary:

: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture

Eto na, umpisahan ko na about movies.

Double picture: Flightplan and Cinderella Man

Cinderella Man - for the longest time, i thought it was a tearjerker movie.. but upon hearing that it's on the elite's movie list, i started to get curious.. then, rushed to the nearest video store.. the reviews were right, the movie (boxing career of James "Jim" J. Braddock) is totally inspiring! Having a comeback in the boxing ring (to help his family) says it all. His amazing comeback became the source of inspiration of many down-on-their-luck Americans during that time.

I just love movies where the underdogs prevail (as they always do). Russel Crowe portrayed effectively (no wonder he got an Academy nomination), his character (Jim) was so humble, so down-to-earth. It somewhat moved me in that scene where he walks to the ring on his title bout, the whole Madison Square Garden crowd suddenly became quiet (a sign of respect, maybe) and, his hometown crowd filling up the church to pray for him.

It's nice to see one man's determination to get up after his stumble. Hope I could do the same. (and not just sit in a corner and reminisce what went wrong) L-) Take note: the movie is based on a true story.

Flightplan- Ms. Jodie Foster does it again.. hey, she's doing movies once in a blue moon, so you are sure on what she has to offer. As the title implies, the story is set on the aircraft. Nah, forget the first half of the movie (unless you want it detailed). Kyle's (Foster) daughter, Julie, was kidnapped while she was asleep; the whole plane didn't even noticed the kid, nor was she in the flight manifesto. Everybody thought she was going out of her mind.

Then the suspence comes. my heart breaks as she is surrounded by people who don't believe her. You feel her pain as a woman who has lost everything, and refuses to believe she has to lose her daughter.

But you can never take away a mother's instinct. Being an aircraft engineer that she was, she searched the whole plane for her daughter, only to find out that she was being setup(ed).

just watch the movie to find out how the story goes. But i guess you are thinking it was a happy ending.

On Racist Table Manners

A 7-year old Filipino boy named Luc Cagadoc, whose family moved to Canada in 1999, has been disciplined by a lunch monitor at Ecole Lalande in Roxboro, Quebec for eating habits labeled "yucky and disgusting."

A quotable quote from the principal Normand Bergeron:

"Madame, you are in Canada. Here in Canada you should eat the way Canadians eat. If your son eats like a pig he has to go to another table because this is the way we do it and how we're going to do it every time."

"I don't necessarily want students to eat with one hand or with only one instrument, I want them to eat intelligently at the table. I want them to eat correctly with respect for others who are eating with them. That's all I ask. Personally, I don't have any problems with it, but it is not the way you see people eat every day. I have never seen somebody eat with a spoon and a fork at the same time."
How insular and ignorant are you?

intelligent eating. (duh!) How could someone say that we, Filipinos, eat like a pig? Just because we are in a third world country doesn't mean that we have to emulate you. Oh come on!

I thought Canada is a free country, that they even encourage migration from other cultures (to save their race from extinction). But then afterwards, force these kids to follow their culture and grow as Canadians. Hey, you can't bury old traditions away...

Near theft experience

last night, on my way home, i was uncomfortable with my seat in the jeepney, i was not at the either ends of that bench. Then, there's this guy forcing his way in to sit next to me.. minutes later, he looked suspicious and uneasy, planning when to execute his evil deed.

I used my peripheral view to monitor where his hands are going. "Hey, of all people, why me? There are other people that has more treasures than me.." That time, i only got a monochrome cellphone (Thank God, I'm haven't bought a new one!) together with a hundred bucks.

We got an eye-to-eye contact, with my eyes telling him "Loser! you gonna get nothing from me!" Then he pulled over and went off the jeepney with his accomplice.

so, the next time you ride a jeepney, take either the seat nearest to the exit or next to the driver. Don't take an AUV at night, chances are higher you'll get robbed. one more thing, be observant. and try to bring just a small amount of benjamins with you, but come payday (when i got my hard-earned pay in hand), still dunno what to do..

Clubbing for dummies

At last, I have gathered my thoughts to write my first composition (got what I mean? Honestly, I'd been rearranging excerpts, since my high school journalism days, a little revision and whalah! I just came up with an article, hahaha!)

i'm writing in a very late basis.. very historic, very archived! (good thing, i still remember it!)

Weeks ago, I joined my folks to go in a club. We were welcomed by the loud music, bodies bumping all over, and the flowing booze. And then I realized 'What the hell am I doing here? What's my purpose of coming here?' I'm supposed to be in my own, solemn corner...

A change in environment? Well, I think so.

Ok, and the party goes on... after looking around, after walking around, I can say that the place is a convergence of: pretty boys, pretty girls, a group minding their own, men oozing with confidence, and those sort of... losers L-)

Hey, they say it's a place where you can meet people. But it seems i don't have that f**king confidence other people had.

maybe because of all the complex situations (hardships) i don't want to remember (and/or share) anymore.. or maybe i was contained for a long time (in a cell called "home").. or i lost it the day i got this nerve-twitching facial spasm..

hope that day will come when I'll forget my insecurities and be proud on what I had become.
