1. Is summer your favorite season? Why?
- It isn't my fave season coz I hate the heat! -_-

2. Do you exercise more in the summer because you wear less clothing?
- No, I don't exercise more. Maybe even less coz I sweat so much even when not active, ughh!

3. Do you enjoy tanning or are you more concerned about the dangers of basking in the sun?
- I don't enjoy tanning, I'm very conscious of skin cancer.

4. You are on the beach when a waiter appears for your drink order. What do you ask for?
- Melon fruit shake! Mmmm.. =)

5. Do you camp in the summertime?
- No. I usually go to beaches or places with swimming pools.

6. What was your favorite summer vacation as a kid?
- Fave summer vacay when I was a kid was when we went to Baguio City, known as the summer capital of country for its cold temperatures even during the summer. Love it!

8. Do you throw a summer barbecue every year?
- We have family barbecue every Sunday when my parents are here =)

Hehe! Okay, okay.. I admit I'm jumping the gun here, the two-hour American Idol finale will be on Wednesday night yet (Thursday morning here in the Philippines), but I really, truly, deeply feel that the cutie boy-next-door uber-talented singer and instruments player will win American Idol season 8. WHEW! That was a looong sentence! Hehe! Oh yeah, when I said instruments player, I do not only mean the guitar and piano -- Kris Allen also plays the viola and ukelele. How cool is that?? ^_^ You can read his brief profile (and Adam Lambert's too) HERE.

In this season's Top 13 finalists, I rooted for Anoop Desai and Matt Giraud early on. Both were wild card entries and I just looove their smooth voices. Kris Allen didn't make much of an impression on me. Like most of you, I thought he was just another cute face. Hehe! And I thought it was crap that he was married -- after all, his looks and "eligibility" for hookup are what's attracting voting young girls pining for him. Even Simon Cowell said he should have kept quiet about his marriage. However, his being married didn't stop the girls from voting. Somewhere along the way they found out that Kris Allen is more than just a pretty face.

As for myself, I noticed his talent or ARTISTRY (as American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi put it) on Week 2: Michael Jackson when he sang "Remember the Time" with a guitar. He just blew me away!! ^_^ Then on Week 3: Grand Ole Opry, Kris Allen performed Garth Brooks' "To Make You Feel My Love" -- and I just felt the love! I was swooning! LOL! On Week 4: Motown, he sang Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" and again I felt the love. However at this time I was pining for Anoop and Matt, was awed with Adam Lambert too, there was no room for Kris yet.. Hehe!

What made me a Kris Allen fan was his Week 5: Top Downloads performance of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" on piano!! I was like, what?? He plays the guitar AND a piano as well?? And it was a very moving performance, I felt his emotions, we just connected ;-) Then came his Week 7: Songs From the Cinema performance -- he sang "Falling Slowly" from a little-known movie called "Once" and he just nailed it. His artistry was just mind-blowing! Kris isn't just a singer, he's an artist through and through. I was definitely hooked! ^_^

I became a die-hard fan with his Week 9: Rat Pack Standards performance of "The Way You Look Tonight" -- his eyes were magic! I swooned, I pined, I just fell in love with him. My hubby was like, "He's just another pretty face babe.." and I was like "NO! He really connects with his audience, he's very charismatic.." From then on, I shouted on Twitter and Facebook that he's the guy who's gonna win American Idol 8. Nobody believed me, even Simon Cowell dissed him til Week 10: Rock. That was expected since Kris isn't really a rocker.

But everything changed in Week 11 when Kris Allen sang Kanye West's "Heartless". Everybody loved it, his artistry was all over the place! The judges even thought it was better than the original. WOW!! Simon Cowell also said that Kris was back in the game -- the highest compliment he ever got ^_^ That stellar performance was the one that put Kris Allen in Top 2. And tonight, he and Adam Lambert will have their final showdown. Two unique and oh-so different artists performing 3 songs each means it's gonna be one awesome show! And tomorrow, Kris Allen will be the American Idol 8 champ!! Mark my words!

addicted to Restaurant City!

I never thought I could get addicted to a game as I did with The Sims! But the people behind PlayFish (maker of the popular game, Pet Society) knew my weakness (food!!) and here I am, staying up late to run my very own Asian restaurant! LOL! Here are some screenshots when I was just starting. Note the number 50 at the upper right -- that's the highest popularity level and I'm sooo proud of that! Why? Coz I had the score despite dirty toilets! Hahaha!

Catholic Life in the Spirit Seminar

It's also known as CLSS and last Friday, together with my husband, we attended the 3-day event. Friday was our 7th wedding monthsary and I thought it was great that we're doing something important to celebrate it rather than just eating out as per the usual when we celebrate anniversaries =) Anyway, for 3 days we stayed in St. Francis Xavier Major Seminary (REMASE), Catalunan Grande, Davao City. The area was fab! Lots of trees, very cool, very quiet. Perfect for a faith renewal activity =)

The Catholic Life in the Spirit Seminar we attended was organized by the Oasis of Love - Davao, a charismatic community where my parents have been members for several years. My mother has invited me to attend the seminar for quite some time but I always had something going on — 24 hour duties, reviewing for the medical board, stuff.. But finally, I was free. And Labsie (my husband) was in as well! Talk about “all in God’s time..”

CLSS is all about renewing your faith, healing your spirit (very helpful if you have lots of family and relationship issues) and receiving the Holy Spirit. I can't say much about it as the organizers asked us to keep the details secret so the next participants' experience won't be spoiled. Suffice to say, it was an awesome experience and the food in REMASE was home-cooked great! ^_^ I can’t believe I had 6 meals per day the entire time we were there! LOL! Anyway, if you're interested to join CLSS, there'll be another one next summer. Contact Oasis of Love for details.

Booking Through Thursday: GRAPHIC!

btt button
You can join in the fun HERE! "Last Saturday (May 2nd) is Free Comic Book Day! In celebration of comics and graphic novels, some suggestions:"

1) Do you read graphic novels/comics? Why do/don’t you enjoy them?
- Yes, I read comics.. long before they were known as graphic novels! LOL! I enjoy them because of the illustrations and fast-paced story lines =)

2) How would you describe the difference between “graphic novel” and “comic”? Is there a difference at all?
- No difference at all. "Graphic novel" is just a term coined by the Hollywood people to glorify comics -_-

3) Say you have a friend who’s never encountered graphic novels. Recommend some titles you consider landmark/”canonical”.
- I'd recommend "The Dark Night Returns" and "Watchmen" for starters. Hope that will get him hooked so I can recommend "heavier" titles ;-)

watch Pacquiao-Hatton fight here!

ROUND 1: Despite Ricky Hatton's aggressiveness (he was all over Pacman), it was Manny Pacquiao who drew the first blood! The Hitman also hit the ring floor several times after being caught by Pacman's punches. The round ended with Hatton being saved by the bell from Pacquiao's further onslaught.

ROUND 2: Ricky Hatton was able to hit Manny Pacquiao a few times. It appears he was redeeming himself. Unfortunately, Pacman had other plans and was connecting left and right punches as well. The final blow was dealt with 20 seconds left in the round. Pacman's south paw connected to Hatton's jaw and he was out cold instantly -- way before he hit the floor.
