in blackest day and night

The light of the emotional spectrum will rise!...
...The red throes of rage, the orange light of avarice,...
...the yellow fire of fear, the blue rays of hope,...
...the indigo glow of compassion and the violet aura of love.
And in the center of it all, the green might of will power.
And as the light rises, so shall an unknown darkness!
A darkness with no satiation.
A darkness with no life!
- oh my! where I have been?!!! now Im missing the big thing..
glad that there's internet.

Spa Party to your home by Caprichosa Spa

I just experienced a one of a kind party and not just an ordinary party, it is a Spa Party. A party organized by Caprichosa Spa that they can bring the whole spa parlor to your home and experience a wonderful relaxation and wellness. You can request for more addition, like put some decoration, added therapists, food and drinks. For P6,000, the spa party will be a good service for 15 person.

I tried the foot spa and the back massage, and everyone seems to be rejuvenated after it. I got hungry after some relaxation, and wow, the pasta I ate really pumped my body and gave me a good sleep after going home. Read more below and see my photo coverage

Carlos and Lil, owners of the spa, provided us with snacks, massage and spa service, and a relaxing music that loops the whole afternoon. The setting of the home spa party is nice, everything is covered in white clothes and the floor, tables and chairs are covered with flower petals, scented candles are lit up, andd we wore golden robes and that Croc slippers. It will be great treat for your friends and family to have a spa party, most of their clients do that spa party for baby showers and birthday parties. Caprichosa Spa main branch is located in Paranaque, but now the spa can now go everywhere and it is now opened for bookings.

Fitness First Philippines and the New You Achievement Award (photo coverage)

Fitness First Philippines just organized the New You Achievement Award, and it is the first here in Asia to have an award and celebrate the greatest achievement of thei members. 15 members were selected to join and 1 winner will take home the award, and congratulation to Miss Angelica Balatbat for winning the award.

All of the 15 selected members have an inspiring story and each of them has different success stories and it is very inspiring. I'm now excited to try Fitness First and try to loose weight, have to get out of the 38 waistline. Read more below

Their success stories are the key source of inspiration to others (and to me), the event was held at Embassy Super Club and everyone was all dressed up and the awarders are there wearing their gym outfit, casual clothes and then gala attire. The video presentation of each of them gave a great backside story on why they are into Fitness First, some are for health, others are for sport, and some are for good body shape. " Seeing our members look better and live healthier is our motivation to constantly innovate and remain at the forefront of fitness. We hope that more people will follow the lead of these inspiring individuals and welcome the dawn of a new and better life", according to Mark Ellis, Fitness First Philippines Country Manager.

TRON 2 title revealed

The image “http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs199.snc1/6735_105672088173_504563173_2216694_1464727_n.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Tron Legacy is the title for the sequel of the 1982 movie Tron. The title was revealed at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con. I was young at that time when I watched this movie, I know about video games, but I still have no knowledge of the tech terminologies that was used in the classic sci fi film, I guess its time for me to grab a dvd and watch it again.

"Light Cycles will be making a return,with new designs by Daniel Simon.According to the press conference at ComicCon 2009, a new vehicle called a "Light Runner" is to be a two-seat version of the light cycle. We will also get a glimpse at Kevin Flynn's own cycle.- Wikipedia"

and here's another info

"On July 21, 2009, several movie-related websites posted they had received via mail a pair of "Flynn's Arcade" golden coins along with a flash drive. Its content was an animated gif image that showed css code lines. Four of them were put together and part of the code was cracked, revealing the url to Flynnlives.com, a fiction site mantained by activists who believe Kevin Flynn is alive, even though he's been missing since 1989. Clicking on a tiny spider in the lower section of the main page leads to a countdown clock that hits zero on July 23, 2009, 9:30pm PDT. Within the Terms of Use Section, an address was found. It lies at San Diego, CA, nearby the city's convention center, where the Comic Con 2009 is taking place and some footage/info on the sequel is expected to be seen. Many suspect the Arcade has been re-opened at that location.[18] A second viral site, homeoftron.com, has been found. It portrays some of the history of Flynn's Arcade as well as a fan memoir section - Wikipedia"

We walk.....


Blog title is inspired from the Ting Tings song "We Walk". It was a marathon day for me yesterday travelling from Cavite to Makati and to SM Marikina. I enjoyed using all those free alcogel that is posted in every corner of a building in Makati. There's one in the elevator and infront of the door of every office. Then after my meeting in Makati, I battle with commuters in riding the rushing MRT going to Cubao, after my meeting in SM Marikina, I rewarded myself a regular meal of lechon paksiw at Lydia's lechon in the Food court area. And after my meal, I continued my project and went home sleeping in the bus for 2 hours.

next stop for today is going to Glorietta, Forbes and Embassy.

Partial Solar Eclipse July 22, 2009 Cavite, Philippines


in Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines.

I woke up at 7:30am of July 22, 2009 and went outside to check out where the sun is rising, I was planning to go to SM Mall of Asia at 8:00am but I decided to stay home and it will be more easier for me to observe the partial solar eclipse. The sun is shining in its brightest light and it's my 3rd time to cover this heavenly body event for my blog. I used again my 3 sun glasses as filter for my camera, but this time I'm no longer using a 10x zoom Olympus SP 500UZ, and I miss using it and now I used for the first time a DSLR Olympus E520. in cloud setting ,-1.3, action sport setting, 150mm.

more photos below of the partial solar eclipse

complete photo coverage can be found in my multiply.com album at Partial Solar Eclipse July 22, 2009 Cavite, Philippines photo coverage


at 8:00am, sun is bright and large clouds are spotted nearby


at around 8:35am, the moon started to cover the sun, starting from the upper left corner


its a long wait....


at around 9:15am, the moon passes and covers nearly the sun in half


i love taking the sun with the clouds, it help me to filter out the harmful sun rays


partial solar eclipse is complete!


at 9:50am the moon started to moved out of the sun


I decided to quit the observation after a rain shower came at around 10:30am.
