From Black to White (and I'm not talking about the King of Pop)

Noong Miyerkulesko isinuko ang aking pinakamamahal na lappy...



Nawa'y mainam ang pagtrato sa iyo ng bagong nagmamay-ari ng iyong puso... I mean, CPU (haha)



Pagkatpos kong magluksa ng ilang araw... well, what can I say, I'm back to my old fabulous self dahil nakahanap na ako ng bagong mamahalin (na laptop!!!)

yiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeee

Kinikilig pa din ako hanggang nagyon! hahaha

Let me introduce, my new partner in crime:



Mga ilang araw ko din pinag-isipan ng husto kung sa kanya ko na nga ipapataw ang korona ng pagiging tech buddy ko.



Until finally nung Saturday, hindi na ako nakatiis, ayun, sumugod ako sa Cyberzone at binili ko na siya....



Fresh from the box!!!



Chanchararan!!!!!

Ang aking bagong kalaguyo: Dell Inspiron 1440 Alba (nag-iisip pa ako ng benggang name)



Mejo nagkakalapit sila ng itsura ng aking naunang HP Pavilion dv2213 pero mas "wide" ang widescreen monitor niya, at... well, mas maganda at mas malupet siya all in all!

hahahahahaha!

Tech talk time!!! (nahawa na ako kay Christian)

Nandirito ang mga mahahalagang impormasyon tungkol sa kanya.

The Dell Inspiron series is, as most people know, more suited for the average consumer (who wants to do more than just word processing and net surfing) as opposed to Dell's XPS and Studio series.

Mine is Inspiron 1440 Alba (1420 yung predeceessor niya). It has super enhanced specs and a more refined look as compared to the 1420.

The processor is also REALLY impressive (especially for a consumer laptop). Boasting a Core 2 Duo processor w/ 2.2GHz and 2MB cache - PWEDE NA! (compared to my Pavlion which only had an AMD Turion running at 1.6GHz and 1mb cachee)

Panalo na ang 4gb DDR2 memmory at ang 320gb SATA drive Mabilis ko itong mapupuno! wahahaha.

In short, it's lighter, it's faster, it's sleeker, and definitely whiter than my previous one.

The speakers can use an improvement though, but all in all, masayang masaya ako sa aking bagong kalaro!

weeeee!!!!

Here's to faster and more efficient blogging (and hopeefully, Photoshopping hahahaha)!

The first Korean song I actually liked

Una kong nakita ito dito sa blog ni mareng Wilberchie

AT ayan, na-adik na din ako. Kabilib ang choreography! angas! It's nice how the dance complimented ther otherwise too many performers.

The excellence in both choreography and execution was even more highlighted by the very simplistic/minimalist treatment of te entire music video: It's just one seamless shot (seemingly) with the camera tracking in and out of the set (which in turn is just a well-lighted black/gray studio space.

And don't you just love that they have a chubby dancer?

On the downside though, while I totally love the entire sound of the song, I still can't help but feel that, o course, these are a bunch of Korean boys trying to be more Western Pop. Nothing against it, of course, though it feels odd to call it a "Korean pop song" when nothing about the sound of it sounds authentically and intrinsically "Korean".

With the exception of the Korean singers, dancers, and words. This song (melody and choreo) sould have been easily adapted by any English or American boy band (which thankfully has been extinct for around a decade now) and it will still be the same song (almost)

Of course, there is no discounting the fact that while the Asian world is a bit delayed with the boyband pop wave, they apparently bear such charm that is sooooo Asian fangirl. In any case, no objections about boys who have fantabulous hair and skin to boot. They are such lovely twinks! hahaha.

By the way, just to add, the ending of this video REALLY looks like a gay love triangle! hahaha

Generally... LAVET!

ENJOY



UPDATE:

They are the Super Juniors. I refuse to discuss fandom matters here so just check out more infor here.

Here's a different take on the song WITH closer shots so we can appreciate more the hotness (or more likely, the twinkledom) of each member.

ENJOY ULIT



UPDATE (part 2)

Sorry na lang mga te, laglag talaga panty ko sa kantang ito saka kay:


Donghae - dahil makalaglag panty siya sumayaw (at mejo panay ang hawak sa katawan! anubah!!!)


Sungmin - coz he reminds of my favorite twink Enchong Dee. Not to mention ang cute niya

Sus! I'm becoming a Rice Queen na!

huwell, ito alternate video with lyrrics! san ka pa!

An ode to my HP Pavilion

It's almost as good as done...

By tomorrow, I will be lappy-less once more.



Kakanta na lang ako...


goodbye to you my trusted friend...


We've known each other since we were 9 or 10... (charoz)

You were my trustee companion when our office laptops weren't working properly

Ikaw ang kasa-kasama ko paggawa ng instant minutes... ng instant presentations (habang nasa taxi)

Kapag nag-o-OT sa bahay...

Nung ako'y nabaldado, niligtas mo ako from extreme boredom

Sandamukal ng torrents ang na-download natin together.

Nabuo mo ang blog na ito... pinabongga mo ang Multiply ko... at pinagtyagaan mo ang mga kagaguhan ko sa Facebook..

Nung napuno kita ng mga files, hindi ka nagreklamo....

Niung napuno ko na din ang 3 external drives, hindi ka umangal... o nagselos!

Together, binuo natin ang mga albu art at pinuno natin ng songs ang iPod ko...

Marami na ring family movie time ang pinagdaanan natin

Sa iyo natuto mangalikot ng computer si Tatot...

Pinag-awayan ka na rin namin ni Christian (oo, pati laptop pinagseselosan ko)

At higit sa lahat, ikaw ang peace offering sa akin ng Nanay ko...

For that, hinding hindi kita malilimutan... saan mang lupalop ka ng mundo makarating

You will always be my first lappy...

INUMAN NA TOH!

In disguise

Sa mga hindi ko ka-Fezbook (maki sakay na kasi sa bandwagon bago pa ito madisband noh!) Nais ko i-share sa inyo ang mga kagaguhang pinagaksayahan ko ng sandali noong weekend.

Presenting....

The Many faces of Her Royal Highness Ma. Jolivia Loyola


Well, the original plan was to do an Imelda pero ayon sa mga ka-fezbook, mas kahawig daw si Jang Geum (hmf) o si Mulan, WORSE, yung nanay ni Mulan! (double hmf! HMF HMF!!)



Hindi lang mejo napakapal ang funda... mejo napaaga din ang Halloween :D


At ang favorite ko, pwedeng isali sa Miss Gay: From the land of the rising sun! Gay na Geisha!

PS: tunay ko pong buhok yan (enhanced by a li'l photoshop, of course)... ganyan talaga pag walang magawa sa buhay

My Vintage Asian Pose circa 2006

Dahil gaya gaya ako sa mga kapwa ko sikat, este, I mean bloggers :D

makikiuso ako sa Asian Pose chuva ng mga beckyng itey.

Ganitech ang kuwento:

Alam na naman nating lahat na ang mga kachokaran nating mga Cam Whores dito sa region eh mejo umaalagwa sa pagkakulit pagdating sa kodakan (Shet ang 90's promdi ng term) gawin nating cam-whoringan (Haler ang peace sign ever na di natin maintindihan na kung ano ba siya talaga, dava!?!)

Anyway, from there, nabuo ang site na Asian Poses - which is basically pabonggahan at pa..., well, wirduhan ng poses ng mga chinezang kapitbahay natin. Shempre hindi papahuli sa pabonggahan ang mga vaklush na katuladnatin so may I adapat ang Thailand-based beckys (tama ba?) ng Gays of Our Lives.

And well, from there, kumalat na siya (parang swine flu lang) sa sangkalahang Blogworld at umabot sa mga kapatiran ko sa kalandian: sina Mareng Lyka Bergen, Kawadjan, at Mrs. J.

Shempre, di papahuli si HRH Maria Jolivia. I was about to hip otmy digicam and Cam-whorify myself when I realized: huwet, huwet, huwet, matambok na puwet! I alraedy ahve my own ASIAN POSES (of some sort).

So, may I check out my archives of 2006 and look what I found ang mga kauna-unahan kong kagaguhan sa harap ng camphones with my Trainee buddies (Ani, Gen, Kit, Jovi, and Jade) aka Talongs!

Victoria!

SO may I collage ng kaunti and voila! my own "vintage" Asian Pose circa 2006. (back when I still had horribly straight hair - sing landi pero di sing bongga!) ENJOY!

REVIEW: Dose

It was bound to be another non-date weekend last last Sunday (July 5).

Buti na lang nagyaya manood ng movie si Christian.

At dahil maganda ang review sa kanya at may recommendations pa to boost, may I watch naman kami.

To be fair to the film, it has it's own merits. I was really intrigued by its premise. As said in The Bakla review:

There's no nudity, and a "penetration" consummates only towards the end, but
Dose is a decidedly sexual journey. It's the story of a boy's coming of age, yet
the genius of the movie is that it acknowledges the boy's sexuality as something
to be anticipated and inevitable, a thing of the future, but also a tactile
presence, already happening.

And really, a 12-year old gay kid falling over a twnety (thrity?) something gardener, I think, is something that also smells real.

Not to mention generous scenes of Yule Servo half nekkid in pekpek shorts! kamown! BONUS!!!


Long story short, we saw we loved it... but not completely.

Here's what I think:

1. I think MGG's blog title "Love Knows No Age Or Gender" is a bit misleading. First of all, the movie does not show how the 2 characters (the kid and the gardener) fell in love or loved one another. As The Bakla Review says: It's a coming of age story. It shows how the kid develops his affections towards his "ya-ku". It's not about love, it's about Edy (the kid) discovering his sexuality

2. Given that it's aCInema One original, there's a lot of technical shit that needs to be improved. But that's understandable. What I don;t understand is the lack of establishing shots and the flow of the timline. It's like a montage of several scenes put together. It made sense, of course, coz it was easy to make out, but sometime during the rest of the movie, one will eventually lose sense of time and date... It's just confusing

3. The shots were too cramped. what's up DOP? most of the kitchen/dining area shots have the same angle. the funny thing is, they were ona huge house with ample space to move around and capture the flow of movement. It's all very stationary and boxed for the most part of the scene. The only movement that happened was during the denoument of teh movie when Edy searches for Danny.

4. The kids acting was just so... Batibot/ANg TV era. Y'know, that manner of delivery that is so fake and so trying hard to be wholesome. It's sickening but forgiveable. But on Yule Servo... well... that's just sad. Emilio Garcia, however, was just briliant! I haven't seen perform like that before... so subtle yet so gay. amazing. The choice of having Yule Servo play his 60-year-old self was just a mistake. It sucked big time.

5. But I think the saving grace of this filmis the story. The executionwas a bit pffffftttt but it was a well-written story with a lot of heart. The amazing thing is that the story was able to shine even with the crappy technicals and the crappy acting.

Now THAT is what I call writing. Kudos to Senedy Que!

Just a quick one

I barely got any sleep tonight.

Woke up in the wee hours of the night (2am) cramming for a presentation due this morning.

It's now 6:20am and my eyeballs are in dire need of rest.

I'm afraid I'm gonna snooze off today at work.

I spent the whole weekend working... Saturday in the office, Sunday with my Bebi but stillon his laptop working.

When's the next weekend? I want another shot at having to relax and just enjoy the company of friends, family, and love one.

On the upside, still, I got to spend the whole Sunday with Christian; working most of the day, but still with my one and only Bebi.

thanks for lending me ur lappy and helping me get through this hectic weekend.

Love u bebi.
