Life’s simple pleasures: Part One: Food
Jan 29th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I’m all up for simplicity of life. That’s how I want my life to be lived. It is very easy to complicate things while I look for ways to simplify it.

It’s all the mind they say and I absolutely believe in this. Like say for example, with the food I eat.  Getting real fat again like when I was a freshman in high school is one of the scary thoughts I secretly have.  I “program” my mind to sway away from the bad stuff. Now my favorites are what most people consider as healthy.

I’m no saint. I still eat fast food junk once in a while. Just everything in moderation(?).

My favorite foods? I realized they are those simple dishes that have the basic taste.

Example? I love eggs.

boiled

Hard boiled. Sunny side up yolk a bit runny…

Gusto kong maging Senador!
Jan 28th, 2010 by niceyfemme

ANG SARAP MAGING SENADOR!

Miriam Defensor Santiago was featured in Correspondents last week.

Maganda rin naman ang naidudulot ng pagiging prangka ni Senador Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Ayon kay Santiago , marami ang tumatak-bong Senador dahil sa laki ng budget na ibinibigay sa kanila kada buwan.

Lumalabas na P35,000 suweldo nila kada buwan ay pakitang-tao lang sa milyun-milyong budget ng bawat senador… Kada buwan ay may Fixed Monthly Budget ang bawat Senador ng humigit-kumulang P2 Milyon.

Sa opisina pa lang nila ay humigit-kumulang P500,000 ang budget nila sa Maintenance and Operating Expenses (Rental, Utilities, Supplies at Domestic Travels) at P500,000 para sa Staff at Personal expenses. Kaya para makatipid ang ibang Senador, kaunti lang ang staff na kinukuha nila. Nagtataka ka pa kung bakit mayroong mga Ghost Employee?

Bukod diyan, may P760,000 allowance pa sila kada buwan para naman sa Foreign Travel. At ang masakit pa nito, hindi na kailangan i-liquidate ang mga resibo ng mga gastusin ‘yan kundi Certification lang ang Requirement.

Heto pa, lahat sila ay Chairman ng mg Komite sa Senado. Ang Committee Chairman ay tumatanggap din ng budget na sinlaki ng tinatanggap ng mga Senador na humigit-kumulang P1 Milyon din! Hindi sila mawawalan ng Komite dahil 24 lang ang ating mga Senador at 37 naman ang Committee sa Senado. There’s food for everybody ‘ika nga! Lumalabas na doble ang kanilang benepesiyo at kita kapag sila ay nabiyayaan ng Committee Chairmanship.

Sa P200 milyon na Budget para sa Pork Barrel ng mga Senador bawat taon, awtomatikong may 10% na S.O.P. o kita ng Senador na P20 milyon< /B>. Ito ang porsiyento na ibinibigay ng mga kontratista sa mga Senador na nagbibigay sa kanila ng mga Infrastructure at Livelihood Project.

Bago matapos ang termino ng isang Senador, kumita na siya ng P100 milyon sa Pork Barrel pa lang. Yung ibang Senador mas gahaman, hindi lang 10% kundi 20 – 30% ang komisyon hinihingi sa mga kontratista.

Pansinin niyo na lang ang pagbabago ng buhay ng ilan sa ating mga Senador simula nang manungkulan sa puwesto. Kung dati ay simple lang ang kanilang pamumuhay ngayon ay nakatira na sila sa mga eksklusibong subdivision, maraming bahay sa Pilipinas at abroad at mahigit lima ang sasakyan.

Ngayon nagtataka ka pa ba kung bakit gumagastos ng daan-daang milyong piso ang mga Senador sa kampanya para sa isang posisyon na P35,000 lang ang suweldo kada buwan? Bawing-bawi pala ang gastos kapag naupo na!

ANG SARAP MAGING SENADOR! ! !

PLEASE FORWARD TO AS MANY OF YOUR FRIENDS AND LET THE WHOLE COUNTRY KNOW THAT ELECTION IS MORE OF PUTTING AMBITIOUS PEOPLE IN POSITION WHO ARE GREEDY IN POWER, WEALTH & PRESTIGE THAN OF PUBLIC SERVICE… ANG MASAKIT PA PERA NG BAYAN PARIN GAGAMITIN SA ELEKSYON MALUKLOK LANG SILA SA PWESTO!!

Cebu’s Dancing Inmates’ “This Is It.”
Jan 27th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Whoah! Something A.W.E.S.O.M.E to start my day with. 🙂

Here’s the talented Cebu Dancing Inmates joined by Michael Jackson’s long time choreographer Travis Payne and dancers Daniel Celebre and Dres Reid… They came over to Cebu, Philippines to teach the inmates the choreography of This Is It.

So cool!

I love the part when they all start to dance together… starting at @1:20… I remember myself being in awe and I was speechless and could only say “Ooohhhh shit!” PLUS goosebumps! @2:46, @3:45 has the most goosebumps love it!

It’s great the video has great sounds to go with it, thanks so SONY.

(Did I see Will Devaughn @3:17 there holding the flag?)

They are so great!

To Travis Payne and the dancers thank you guys for coming over and to the inmates you guys did it again. You guys did a great job.

I’m sooo proud.

Princess and Cathy of PBB Double Up
Jan 25th, 2010 by niceyfemme

In our house, it’s already a routine to have the TV on since my Mom watches the news until Kris Aquino’s new drama. After that she’ll go to her room and leave the tv on. So I hear the dialogues of Pinoy Big Brother.

pbb-housemates

These past days I think it got interesting. Why? They are fighting! That is interesting for me haha! True colors are coming out. I like observing their behavior.

princess-pbb

I’m so pissed at Princess. She’s a real biatch. She acted like the bully that she is. Her type is just what I hate the most.

And don’t give me the “I was tasked by Big Brother to act that way, to let their true colors come out” reason. She wasn’t instructed to act specifically like that. They were given a rather general task, it is how they interpret it that makes the difference. A not-in-a-good-taste difference at that.

She even called Mariel(?) bitch in the face. She knows that will be shown in national TV and she didn’t hesitate at all, what more those instances behind the camera? She’s just lucky she happens to be a girl or she has gotten a punch in the face for acting (4:12-4:47) the way she did to Paul Jake. Paul Jake: “Why are you in my face?”

She tried to intimidate others by constantly speaking in English and even Nihonggo when she’s just as fluent in Tagalog. Hmmmn……. When everybody speak Tagalog, you should speak Tagalog unless you cant. Grrrr!

princess of pbb
Overcompensating for the insecurity within.

In this instance, I believe Mariel is the only housemate that showed she’s got balls to stand up to Princess. The others were playing safe.

There’s only one way she could make it in the local entertainment, that is to be the villain. Oh she’ll be so good at it, believe me. She already made me crack my knuckles! Haha! She made me remember the past kontrabidas of my life…. Hmmmn….. Photobucket

Then there’s Cathy. She’s pretty yes, enough to have two guys going after her. At first people are saying she’s a flirt while I thought then it’s not her fault she is pretty and therefore appreciated by those guys.

Johan and Cathy

Then she got evicted. Joined the other evicted housemates in their task of breaking down the tower of dominoes and making the lives of those still in the house hell.

She started acting this I’m-so-pretty-guys-are-going-gaga-over-me woman. She also talked to the guys which isn’t in good taste as well. It’s like they should leave guarding the tower because she was talking to them, when they didn’t give in to her whim, she talked badly to both guys…

We have to admit, those actions done by the evicted housemates are ATLEAST half truth. There is basis to them.

I’m just saying, this is a very successful task of Big Brother. Main goal is to make the real attitude of the remaining housemates come out. Turned out even the evicted housemates showed their real colors.

There’s a fine line between being real and being a biatch.

I’m just saying……..

For Jsin lovers
Jan 24th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I was oh so surprised when a number of girls are leaving messages here and even sending me private messages about their LOVE for Jason Ivler. I’m surprised really with the way they described him. last adjective they will use I suppose is killer or murderer. But for them he’s hot. Ok I get it, girls like bad boys, dangerous guys with tattoos.

Jason Ivler is so forbidden that he is becoming too irresistible? And who am I to say he’s bad looking?

Here’s Jason Ivler’s music video found in Youtube.

It’s JsIn!

Here’s a close up photo for ya girls.

ivler-jason-

And another one.

But then may I remind you, Marlene Aguilar seems like she could be the worst mother-in-law ever ehhehe…. Since she looks down on people specially Pinoys so… Tsk tsk!

I’m just saying. Photobucket

Smart Bro Connection: Sucks!
Jan 23rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

It used to be good. I mean I don’t have very high expectations from it, only to let me be able to browse and upload.

Then for about a week now, it started to suck. It says I’m connected but I can’t browse. I’m able to browse only for 5-10 seconds then it will stop.

I tried calling *1888 their hotline, and I have to press a lot of numbers and wait a few minutes before I was able to talk to a HUMAN. Then finally when I was already talking to a human, this human seemed to have no intention of listening to me. Then after repeating and repeating my problem, he finally get it then BAM! Connection Disconnected!

I had to call again, go through the grueling process and get this, I have to repeat explaining what my problem is. And the worst part? I have do this FIVE times! Because the connection kept on getting disconnected I had to call them five times! Explain and explain non-stop. This took more than an hour to do. I mean just to report and ask them to fix it but I GOT NOTHING. Just plain frustration.

It’s not the first time I experienced this with them. First time was when I tried their USB modem I bout at Php 4500.00 I think. It was new then. But it was the WORST EVER. It took forever to load Yahoo or Google’s homepage. I was literally falling asleep. I hate it. In the end I threw it out. Not worth having a heart attack for.

I hate customer service. Yes, it’s hell.

We went to Smart Business center in SM Bacoor and it was no different. It was a dead hour and we waited an hour and a half to get to talk to someone. Then she told us she made a report about my prob and I STILL have to call their freaking hotline. WOW!

It’s the same with other companies. Like Sky Cable. Tried calling their numbers here and it just kept on ringing and no one answered. I tried calling for two days. Alright, lost business right there.

I hate that we consumers have to go through this. We are paying customers and we deserve what we are paying for and we don’t have to kind of like beg for them to fix it. It should be working in the first place. It’s been a week now and I’m still annoyed and I have no energy to follow it up.

Yes, customer service hell!

Blame James Yap!
Jan 19th, 2010 by niceyfemme

yap family

I just love this comment in CVS’ blog from shawiefan…..

i think kris is in the right here. even if mayen claims that nothing’s going on with her and james, why is she texting and calling him to confide about her problems? doesnt she have other friends? and she’s a fan? so how come she and james started to become close? and her admitting that she’s clinically depressed and prone to overdose is clearly a ploy to get sympathies. (it just made her look crazy)

eto naman si james, ang landi. entertains anyone with a skirt.

krissy, if i were you, id find someone else worthy of your attention. clearly, james is a manwhore. (i’d re-evaluate your taste in men if i were you.)

meanwhile, james can find someone who appreciates the way he stares into space. idiot!

Very well said. Please let’s not forget how intelligent this woman is. And Kris handled this situation rationally. If I’m in her shoes (which I hope doesn’t happen ever) I could have done worse.

I totally support Kris in this one.

SHE’S JUST A WOMAN FIGHTING FOR HER MARRIAGE.

To those women (likes of Mayen Austria) who enjoys flirting with married men, please if you need to confide about your problems, run to your family and female or gay friends. When a guy is married, back off.

Don’t cross the line.

And to James Yap, I hope you appreciate just how lucky you got when Kris married you and when she forgave you during the Hope issue. She’s an intelligent woman who loves you like crazy. You are lucky.

I hate it that you once again put your wife in a difficult and painful situation.

I happen to know a lot of women na ni hindi ka papatulan.

Chori, Chori na!
