Refreshing Fresh Fruit-flavored Water

Lemon & Lime-flavored water

Apple-flavored water

Hubby and I were wandering inside the Atlantis Casino in Reno, Nevada last week after dining in one of its restaurants, when we stumbled upon these refreshing drinks in front of the security desk for everyone to have. 

I was like, "Woow! What a great idea to blog about!" I took some photos right away. Before we left, I tried the lemon & lime flavor and hubby tried the apple flavor. T'was so good and refreshing!

I bet it's flippin' cool to have this at home especially when you have a company or host a party or picnic this summer, isn't it?

Thanks for droppin' by.

Topless Bianca Gonzales Covers Esquire Magazine

I did not know that there was Esquire Magazine until today. I was like, "Where have I been?" Really. And I was surprised to see Bianca Gonzales posing topless in a magazine cover although side view only.  I bet it's everyone's first time too.

Well, she has a nice body to flaunt. As the saying goes, "If you have it, flaunt it!"

Agree or disagree?

This Made Me Shed Tears

Someone shared this story in my group's wall on Facebook. After reading it, my heart sank. Poor Manong driver :(

FROM ELUSIVE (25/03/12)

I just wanna share my experience awhile ago. It happened in a jeepney routing from Santolan to Sta. Lucia East Mall. I always look for a jeepney with few people inside because I'm shy if I'm alone. This time I'm going home alone ( which happens once every 1000 years ) and my first instinct is to find the jeepney with the fewest boarder. Outside the Santolan Lrt Station wai...ts a lot of jeepney, and so I am looking for the loneliest one. A couple of steps and Voila I found it, a poor little empty jeepney ( HAHAHA ). I sit beside the driver so that I can play psp (Patapon 3 XD) easily.

Minutes pass, the jeep is half full, I also noticed that the driver is always rubbing his tummy ( the same thing we do when we are hungry), but I don't mind that, what happened next makes me care.

The jeep is full and ready to go, and this is the time when we will give our fares, every person that gives him their fare he always says "Thank You" twice or trice per person, AS IN PER PERSON, I am beside him so I noticed it and I think I am the only one who noticed it. We got stuck in a traffic jam in Ligaya, that time I'm not giving my fare yet because I'm playing psp.

Curiosity strikes and I ask him a question and besides he looks like a good guy.

"Boss, bakit ka thank you ng thank you kanina pag may nagbabayad?"

He answered "kasi itong mga baryang to ang bubuhay sa anak ko"

I don't understand that easily and so we make some more conversation.

Me: "May sakit boss?"

Driver: "Oo anak meron, leukemia"

I stay silent after I heard that, I turn off the psp and look somewhere else because in other words e nakaka awa pero mas naawa ako lalo ng makita ko ang tatlong picture na naka clip sa left side mirror right side mirror at yung mirror sa taas ng ulo ko. I know how to drive so that I know that you will always look in that mirrors every second while you are driving, ALWAYS. And now I know why he always rub his tummy. It makes my eye teary but I'm a man so I fight it. I get my fare, 100 pesos na buo and give it to him.

"Boss Sta. Lucia lang, isa." as soon as I gave the money he count some coins for my change and that same time I said "Hindi na boss ok lang kunin mo na po yan" sabay ngiti. And there again I hear the thousand thank you from him.

Not aware of the other passengers, may mga hindi pa pala nagbabayad. And after what I did they also gave their fares, 100 pesos 200 pesos 50 pesos and I also saw 500 pesos na mga buo, and they all give that to him. I just smiled to them, turn on my psp and start playing again...

That completes my day... teary eyes here.. and anyway, the one in the picture is not him... I just want you to visualize it.. That's it. :))

Click for more photos of the Las Vegas Strip here.

Hubby and I had great time in Las Vegas last week together with his son and grand daughter. Also, together with my Filipina friend Weng and her husband John.

We went to different places. We went to Luxor Hotel and Casino to see the "The Bodies" and Titanic Artifacts Exhibits. Looking at the "raw" human body and and all parts of its system, made me shiver but it was very educational. After we're done with Titanic artifacts exhibit, I wanted to see the movie "Titanic" again.

We have also checked the 300 classic automobiles displayed in the 5th floor of the Imperial Hotel. If you are a car enthusiast, you don't want to miss it. Shiny, gorgeous and very expensive classic cars have been displayed for your eyes only. In the same floor, I enjoyed window shopping different sorts of collectibles. Afterwards, hubby took us to Las Vegas Mini Grand Prix. Clint and Devon had fun driving those "race cars". I declined when hubby offered me to try it because I was scared, hehehe!

Also, we took a walk along the Las Vegas strip from Imperial Hotel where we stayed to MGM Hotel. It was a sunny day but still chilly for me. The strip was crowded. Like us, people were crazy taking pictures. It was quite  a loong way. So tiring. We had to take the Monorail going back to the Imperial Hotel because we didn't think we could make it by walking again. We enjoyed the good foods at the Flavors in Harrah's Hotel and Casino afterwards.

It was a blast!

I've Got a Blog Award!

Thanks to my co-blogger Kim for giving me this award. It's my first! Yeheey! Thank s a lot Kim!

So what is this Liebster Blog award thingy? It is a type of award given to bloggers who has less than 200 followers. When you are given an award, you have to say some facts about yourself so that your followers will have an idea of the real you.

Are you ready to get to know me? Sit tight, hehehe!

1. I am a "Politiko". I am very active in politics in terms of updates on what is going on in the Philippines. I am the kind of person that will stay up late just to watch the CJ Impeachment live on TFC. Though I was not able to cast my vote last election because I live abroad, I was very active in almost every Politics thread in different social sites online. My late Papa was an Ex-Officio Member of Sangguniang Bayan in our town. And I have been appointed as Barangay Council Member in our barangay. That made me a Politiko.

2. I am an adventuress. I am a risk taker in terms of going places where I have not been to, may it be far flung areas, big cities or different countries, may it be job-related or recreational purposes. I've been to two beautiful countries (excluding US) knowing nobody except the person who bought the airline tickets. But I made it sure first that I have money and that I have researched every detail about the country, its laws and regulations, and, it's people, etc.

3. I love Showbiz gossips. Hehehe! Shame on me, hahaha! Well, celebrity gossips really entertain me. My favorite sites are PEP, Celebrity Gabfest on FN and FashionPulis :)

4. I love dancing. But dancing doesn't love me back. My body is too stiff, hehehehe!

5. I hate hubby's smoking habit. Oh God, I soo hate it! He is the nicest person on earth and I love him to death but everytime he coughs hard I would want to choke him. Bad me! 

Well, that's all for now. If I would be given another blog award, I'd surely do write more, hehehe!

Before I would end this post, I would like to share this

Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo are Now Openly Dating (?)

I've heard from an Ashrald fan that Gerald Anderson went to visit Sarah Geronimo while the latter is filming a TV Commercial. Not only that, they left together in one car, dined out somewhere in Eastwood, and apparently, watched concert in Araneta. Another fan denied that this lovely "couple" watched the concert.

A fan also mentioned that the Pop Princess' parents are vacationing in Paris right now. Maybe her parents knew about their date and maybe they approved Gerald to be their daughter's "guardian" while they are away, hehehe! Just my two cents :)

I am very happy that they started going out openly in the public.  This lovely "couple" makes me so kilig. I think they are a perfect pair.

Beth by Kiss (Live)

I didn't know that there was a song entitled "Beth" until I stumbled upon this video. It made me smile because "Beth" is one of my nicknames :)

Anyway, according to Wikipedia, this song is sung by Kiss Band which was released on their 1976 album, "Destroyer". Wow, I was only 4 years old that time!

"The name "Beth" referred to by the song is, in reality, not the name of either of the two women that inspired the song. A bootleg exists of the song from 1971, but the song was sung "Beck, what can I do?" "Beck" was the nickname of fellow Chelsea member Mike Brand's wife, Becky, who would call often during practices to ask Mike when he was coming home.

"Years later, while in Kiss, both Bob Ezrin and Gene Simmons are credited for changing the song's title to "Beth," presumably to be more recognizable as a female name. According to interviews with Criss, around the same time, some of the lyrics were changed to reflect his wife Lydia Di Leonardo's lamentations that she missed him while on tour. So, the song is partly written to Becky and partly Lydia, though neither woman's name was "Beth" at all.

May I re-iterate: "So, the song is partly written to Becky and partly Lydia, though neither woman's name was "Beth" at all." Ouch! I thought it was dedicated to every girl named Beth. Hahaha! Well, as long as I have my name on it...

In fairness, Kiss received "People's Choice Award" for this song in 1977.

It's a beautiful song!

Giddiness here to the highest level while looking at the photo, hahaha!

Fans (I am one of them)  are now assuming that there is really something very special going on between these two lovely people. Well, after the "Babe" incident, you know :)

I would say their status right now is another example of "untitled" or "unlabeled" relationship in showbizness just like Angel Locsin and Phil Younghusband's status. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with that kind of relationship. Let them be if that makes them appeased and happy.

To Sarah G.'s mother Divine: Please don't get mad! Hehehehe! Peace, Mommy Divine!

Fish Spa

Photos courtesy of the owner. Thanks Bless!

The other week, I stumbled upon a website that says singer actress-turned-fashion designer Jessica Simpson has this weird beauty regimen called Fish Spa somewhere in Asia. I thought it was indeed weird.

Just last Sunday, my gorgeous Filipina friend  Bless, who is L.A. based but currently visiting her family in the Philippines, posted photos of her and her sons on Facebook enjoying this kind of spa in Star City, Manila, Philippines. My first comment was, "That's so flippin' ticklish!" She said it truly is! Well, look at the second photo, hehehe!

If I were in that pool with Bless, I would have been screaming, laughing ang giggling like crazy while those little creatures are busy nibbling my dead skins, hahaha! 

Anyway, these little creatures are called nibble fish or doctor fish. They exfoliate dead skins, regulates blood circulations, lightens minor scars, eases skin problems like psoriasis, and, releases stress and tension. Well, I could agree on the last benefit, hehehe!

Charice Pempengco's New Hairstyle

Credit to the source of the photo

The new Charice Pempengco.

It's like her peg is Yeng Constantino, huh?  Or, Aiza Seguerra?

By the way, did you notice that tattoo in her left forearm? That's real. Per Philippine Entertainment Portal dot come (PEP), she got that tattoo just recently in Singapore.

"I think everybody‘s shocked. This is such a big step for me and I love it. This is me. This is who I am. I just don‘t want to stay a person that I don‘t like...I‘ve been thinking about it for years and years. This is a dream come true for me." 

As for her new look, Charice says: "I know some people think that this is very rebellious but it‘s not. It‘s just me evolving. It‘s me transforming into another person that is totally me."

The international singer says that she wants her image to be more like Avril Lavigne and Rihanna.

The young singer chose to ink the words "Love Eternally" on her left forearm and in between the two words is an Infinity sign.

When asked to explain why she chose this design, Charice revealed: "It‘s not just a tattoo. It has a meaning for me. This is for my love for the people, love for my dad, love for my family."

Like or dislike?

For me, she looks cool!

Medicinal Benefit of Parsley

I got this from a friend's Facebook wall and I thought to share it here.

"Parsley cleans your Kidney.

Kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?

1. It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley and wash it clean.

2. Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool.

3. Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before.

Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

However, it is NOT recommended for pregnant women if it is taken in large amount because it may cause uterotonic effects."

Philip Stein Watch for Me (?)

My Filipina friends (Emy, Yuny, Anne) and I just done "window" shopping online for fun. We window shopped purses, jewelry & watches, shoes, etc. I so liked the Philip Stein watches. They look nice and pretty. But they are very expensive! Sigh.

Either one of the two above is perfectly fine with me. Harharhar!

Just my wishful thinking.

My gorgeous friend Vanessa has got one. Lucky girl :)
