Incredible Hulk spotted in the road of Sta. Rosa, Laguna

P1292916
I saw this Incredible Hulk statue standing infront of a craft store along the highway of Sta. Rosa, Laguna going to Silang, Cavite, you'll spot this after passing Nuvali. I think the lifestyle statue is for sale and looks like from Mike Deodato's comic design of Hulk.

I want these G1 little-formers

Ghost, Vampire and Werewolf housemates of Being Human will start on Feb 2 in AXN Beyond

keyart2
Sounds like the song from White Zombie's "More Human, Than Human", but the new series for AXN Beyond is a different take of three people's lives of being no longer..human? or just "Being Human?". The "Being Human" series will be the new Big Brother of reality tv show of supernatural beings. What will be the life of a ghost living with a vampire and how will a vampire escape rampage with a werewolf. But I'm glad that this series will make them friends forever and live in one house and experience what is it like to be outside the human side.

but the thing is that.. the monsters under your bed is real!

sleep and relax

P1272531
This week's activities and mission is very tiring , I already drained all of my battery and now I'm nursing myself and recover from lots of body aches. I didn't expected that learning poi dancing is hard and now my body breaks down due to lack of exercise. My foot gave in again few days ago after a long stroll in a mall. But all of the pain was gone after having a nice foot spa and massage at nail-a-holics in a nearby mall. The funny part is that the massage drained most of my reserved energy and left me relax and sleepy at home. I start to fall asleep when me and Lace are watching this show in National Geographic Channel about the story and mystery of the Crystal Skull, I was hooked on that story because it was the basis for the last Indiana Jones movie.

I missed the Green Hornet special in Discovery Channel because I enjoy too much eating our Max's fried chicken, we ate late already at around 8pm, because I arrived home late carrying a take out meal from Max's. I was suppose to sleep now but the excitement of another travel adventure will start this morning. I'll be away for awhile and go back on Sunday. There's a lot of things that I need to do and that includes massive blogging and also figure out this stand of this career in social media and blogging.

I'm going to bed now.
let's pray for peace on Earth.

The new endorser and babe of San Mig Light

Bikini Shock
"This is the real blind item!"

There's a new endorser and babe for San Mig Light beer this 2011. I discovered that San Miguel Beer finally selected the new endorser of San Mig Light and I'm quite surprised to know about her and mistaken her as Marian Rivera on the first place, my eyes are little bit blurry after a big storm that night and then I looked at the poster again and its a new face for the brand and I know that everyone will recognize her well after appearing in a reality tv show and a movie. As they say this new babe has the "katawan na pang-San Mig Light".

This 2011 they got a new face for San Mig Light and It will be a new world again for us with the country's number 1 low calorie beer, I also heard that she might have a male partner, but no official word yet and they might come in with a group of celeb endorsers for San Mig Light.

mahaba habang inuman ito, so who's this local celebrity-actress?

11 construction workers died after gondola collapses in a high rise building in Makati

P1272544
I heard this news awhile ago when I ate my lunch in Mcdonalds in Greenbelt 1 and lots of people were talking about already and I didn't know that accident is on the next street. I saw the site when the taxi I'm riding passed by and we're tuned in on a local AM radio and I heard the partial news there. I took this photo after a few seconds we passed by infront.

The radio news said that there's 15 construction workers who ride the gondola that has a 6 person capacity limit. The 15 construction workers used the gondola and hop in at the same time going to the top area of the building, then the gondola broke down and fell. According to the news I read below that 11 workers died and others were injured.

Photowalk in Tondo with Filibata

photowalk poster
I like to share this photowalk event on January 29 that will take place in Tondo, Manila. I'm interested to go back in Tondo again and do a photo walk round with photographers and also with NGOs, but I can't make it because I'll be in Tagaytay that day. The photowalk project is for an activity that is happening also in other countries like in Netherlands. And then all photos will be contributed for an upcoming book that shows different situations of children in different cities and country.

I remember that me and my Manila Bloggers Network team visited Tondo few weeks ago for that Wikipedia Takes Manila photo scavenger event. Tondo is an interesting subject for photo walks, I told my team that they should not be scared of visiting Tondo, because people there are nice, just be nice to them and they will be nice to you. I didn't expected that the situation there is like the photo above, but I know that not all part of Tondo is like that.

Bus exploded in EDSA today, 10 hurt, 2 dead


pic source

I was checking my Twitter network and saw this MMDA twit and they reported that there's an aircon bus exploded between Ayala and Buendia in EDSA today, I checked some news and saw that MMDA twit only posted two related news, I started to listen on the radio and tuned in to DzBB and heard a live news report on the bus explosion.

I immediately posted this news on my Plurk, Twitter and Facebook network to let everyone know what's happening outside. The DzBB announcer talked to their correspondent and interviewed a passenger who survived with no wounds at the bus explosion. The passenger guy said that the explosion came from the middle part of the bus, 6 seats before the driver's seat and they didn't notice if there's a passenger board the bus carrying big cases or bags, but the passenger guy said that most passengers are carrying back packs and they didn't noticed because they are watching TV inside the bus. The incident happened at around 2pm. News came in at around 2:20pm.

Then a report came in and said that 10 people got injured on the explosion and one person lost its leg, and then follow up report came in and said that 2 people died on the scene. The bus exploded on the North lane near the loading area of bus in EDSA.

After some minutes, MMDA twit some pics of the bus

as of now the authorities are investigating if its a bomb, or what kind of bomb it is, how powerful it is, or is it an act of terrorism. This is a sad news, I was about to leave home and head to Makati, but I need to delay for awhile and monitor some news about the bus explosion. I'm still at shock after hearing this news yesterday about the bombing in Moscow airport

Terrorist attack on Moscow airport today and eye witness' video lands in YouTube


eye witness' video minutes after the bombing (more videos here)

I was surprised to see this news on CNN and then they provided some videos that were uploaded in YouTube that shows people on panic and running for safety minutes after the airport bombing. Accdg. to CNN that there were 35 people dead and hundreds of people are injured. The State TV in Moscow said that the bomb came from a suicide bomber. Russia orders now a massive investigation on the bombing incident. I saw also a short interview with Russian President Dmitry still at shock and orders fast investigation and now the public question the country's security and safety. Number of deaths will be updated soon as of this post.

Last March 29, 2010. The Moscow Metro Subway was bomb also by a suicide bomber. Heard also that the suicide bombers are composed of two females.

CNN also showed some bombing history through the past years in Russia
November 29, 2009 - bomb derailed trains in Russia
August 2003 - 90 were killed in jet bombings
Feb 2004 - 40 were killed in Metro attack

I have a big feeling that all international airports will be strict as usual and each country's security will be on red alert after this incident.

solo geek time moments with Dove chocolates

1
There's a new chocolate in town and this was released last December 2010. I didn't know that the Dove brand will have its own chocolate line and I've been hearing a lot of it first from my blogger friends, been reading their posts in different microblogs and social networks and then through their blog. The Dove chocolates are real and it came from Mars Food Singapore, the makers specializes in making popular chocolates, chewing gums, other foods and drink brands. And now they created this silky and smooth Dove chocolates. I'm glad that my fellow bloggers spoiled a little on this new brand and I thought that it might be another set of moisturizing soap.

Dove chocolates is now my companion in having my own me-time moment, its fun to eat chocolates if you are alone and spend your time with yourself only, relaxing, reflecting or try to refocus yourself before starting to work or play. I tried this me-time moment before I do a product photo shoot and it got me excited to try my first bite. I have lots of kinds of Dove chocolates, but my family here at home enjoyed it and left one bar for me hahahah.

I'm reviewing some photos in my album and found this one photo and a stranger posing in my camera. I was busy taking some photos at the Laon Laan railway station for a photo scavenger hunt and I remember that my photo shoot was blocked by a moving vehicle as I clicked the shutter button, and then I didn't know that I caught this guy the kodak pogi thing.
