Kris, the Queen of all media is in love to a delata

img1 NEW rev1 (Small)
The Queen of all kinds of Media - Kris Aquino just revealed her "true love" on live television and if you are wondering about what's the buzz, the tv teaser appeared on the 1st week of January 2012 and I didn't even noticed on what its all about, maybe because the TV ad didn't captured my attention and its all just a short teaser, I just noticed it after I posted that video here in my blog via YouTube and thanks to that cute and beautiful contact person in helping me understand what it is all about.

It will be better if they used some kind of tv interview expose sort of like the one they do for The Buzz, and speaking of the tv showbiz talk show - The Buzz, they got an exclusive interview with Kris Aquino and there she revealed that the one true love of her life (for this year) is the yummy "San Marino Chili Corned Tuna", I even ran to the living room to watch tv to see that tv commercial.

yes! its a canned good and not a real person
but I love the chili corned tuna of San Marino, and I agree that it has less oil and more tuna to munch with a hot steamy rice and a nice cold softdrinks..ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sarap nun grabe. It has Omega-3 DHA which is good for the heart, as the label says. (more below)

Join the BIG Binondo Food WOK (Chinese New Year Edition) a walking and eating tour by Ivan Man Dy

P1045278 P1045336
P1045326 P1045252

The Big Binondo Food Wok is very popular to some travelers, foodies and foreigners, I remember years ago that I spotted that tour when I'm doing a photo walk shoot in Binondo and spotted Ivan Man Dy for the 1st time carrying some photos of old Manila, speaking on a mini microphone and carrying a small speaker and infront of him -  a big crowd of people listening to him, taking notes, taking photos and videos and then they follow Ivan where ever he may go, the people with him are mostly foreigners and pinoys.

Then after sometime it reminded me that there's this walking tour headed by Ivan and its a guided tour on foot around Binondo and also around Manila, and this tour is called "Old Manila Walks". Thanks to the internet, social media sites, tv features and articles on the newspaper, the tour became popular and its a must experience thing to everyone, because history about Manila is not fully published on books or encyclopedia, but there are new researchers  who are very updated on the history of Manila and they are willing to share this knowledge to everyone by having a creative style of having a little adventure with the Ivan the tour guide of Old Manila Walks.

Super Robot burgers and sandwiches @ Sumo Sam

Here's  a perfect meal for the super robot OTAKU, I just saw this burger line of Sumo Sam in their menu when we ate in their Shangri La Plaza branch few months ago, its funny that they used super robot names to label their burger meal, they have two kinds - Anime burgers and Roboto Dogs. I haven't tried eating one set of meal because we ordered sukiyaki and some sushi that day. I'm so curious of this "Mazinger Z Chili" burger will make me scream breasttto fire!!!!

No Facebook, Twitter, and etc nuclear blackout to stop SOPA this January 23, 2012
I just learned the news few hours ago after watching a tech show that I downloaded on the net and this is one serious plan of our internet giants to do a nuclear blackout rally for ONE DAY to stop SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), a proposed bill in the US to fight online trafficking of copyrighted infringement  anywhere online, that affects everyone online, from Google search, to social media sites, to YouTube uploads and etc.

The US Senate will have a debate this coming January 23 and then on the 24th it will be the day that everyone on the higher seat will totally agree to release SOPA as a law and like a Kraken to destroy all online materials that are generated by us users.

Thanks to some individuals who raised their hands and not to support SOPA, and threaten a global internet and social media black out on Jan 23rd.
"While the majority of companies and individuals who profit off of content production have lobbied for and are supportive of SOPA, the largest tech companies in the world are vehemently opposed to the new piece of legislation. 87% of the Wikipedia users polled were in support of Jimmy Wales’ idea to initiate an “Internet blackout.”

Since that time, the “nuclear option” has gained popularity and would likely have the support of 15 large tech companies including: Google, Facebook PayPal, Wikipedia, Twitter, & Amazon. Although there has not been a formal decision to temporarily shut down some of the most used sites on the Internet, the most likely date for it to occur is January 23rd – the day before the Senate reconsiders SOPA." - Search Engine Journal
There's no definite time when will the nuclear black out will occur, even that we are not covered by the SOPA here in our country, but the internet giants that we always use and rely will be greatly affected and it will create a massive nuclear reaction to users and maybe to other businesses. If SOPA is approved, then we should be careful and maybe start having our own Google, Facebok, Twitter and etc. just to have our own freedom, I just hope that SOPA will just die even before Jan. 23rd.

The companies reportedly involved in the possible blackout include:
  • AOL
  • eBay
  • Etsy
  • Facebook
  • Foursquare
  • Google
  • IAC
  • LinkedIn
  • Mozilla
  • OpenDNS
  • PayPal
  • Twitter
  • Wikipedia
  • Yahoo!
  • Zynga
    list from - Gloriarand
Its a big list...and If the nuclear blackout is confirmed..then it is still early for me to encash my money in Paypal, I wonder if Blogspots are affected since this is under Google, hmm I should back up my archives before the nuclear black out day.

About SOPA
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R. 3261, is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011, by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) and a bipartisan group of 12 initial co-sponsors. The bill expands the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.[2] Now before the House Judiciary Committee, it builds on the similar PRO-IP Act of 2008 and the corresponding Senate bill, the PROTECT IP Act.[3]

The originally proposed bill would allow the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as copyright holders, to seek court orders against websites accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement. Depending on who requests the court orders, the actions could include barring online advertising networks and payment facilitators such as PayPal from doing business with the allegedly infringing website, barring search engines from linking to such sites, and requiring Internet service providers to block access to such sites. The bill would make unauthorized streaming of copyrighted content a crime, with a maximum penalty of five years in prison for 10 pieces of music or movies within six months. The bill also gives immunity to Internet services that voluntarily take action against websites dedicated to infringement, while making liable for damages any copyright holder who knowingly misrepresents that a website is dedicated to infringement.[4] 
- more here in Wikipedia
I don't know if everyone know about this, we should watch and throw on a big spotlight in the US as the internet nation are having a big battle in their lives contra SOPA, it will be a big change if ever SOPA is approved and everyone can no longer use any materials or even borrow photos, videos, or any copyrighted content for our blogs. 

Both bills are intended to help put a stop to foreign websites that illegally post, and sometimes sell, intellectual property from the United States. Federal law-enforcement agencies would be empowered to shut down those sites and cut off advertising and online payments to them. - CNN

There's also goodness of the SOPA, this can stop selling and distribution online of all kinds of counterfeit goods and digital media, but I'm not sure if everyone is in favor if digital media like movies, mp3 and etc to be considered. There's no actual written or confirmed news about this social media blackout, but its already a news that circulates and maybe the next morning we wake up, everything is offline.

I just wondered...can we live for a day without Google, Facebook, Twitter, Paypal, Yahoo!, Foursquare, and etc....   and hey! why is it that Friendster is not listed ???

If the blackout occurs, then you can find us hanging out in PLURK or MULTIPLY heehehe
