Proof of Wowowee scam

Posted by geronimonadal on December 18, 2007

This is one of the first proof that the Wowowee scam was real. In this video, it is clear that Willy Revillame had the option of choosing which number will appear in the wheel. This is also an indication of the heightened media war between GMA 7 and ABS CBN.

Acoustic Jive Rocks!

Posted by geronimonadal on September 22, 2007

I was in the mood for some beer and music last night that I invited my wife to forego our usual Saturday night dinner (spaghetti na naman dear?) and explore the bar scene in Pasig. Our feet brought us to Bagaberde Bar in Pasig where a group called Acoustic Jive was playing. Led by its 2 main vocalists, Romy Jorolan and May Bayot, Acoustic Jive snatched us from what we expected to be the usual, so-so, ordinary gig to a compelling kick-ass musical experience. May’s own unique rendition of Sting’s “Message in a Bottle” and Romy interpretation of U2’s “With or Without You” really brought the house down. Acoustic Jive is one of the hidden jewels in the current band scene. Oozing with talent and originality, I think that it is only a matter of time that they will be discovered. As I was driving back home, I caught myself singing: “I am sending an SOS to the world. I am sending an SOS to the world…” Yes, I think that sums it. I am sending an SOS to the world: Acoustic Jive rocks!

The Art of Flirting

Posted by geronimonadal on September 20, 2007

Nampucha naman. Kahit pala sa pakikipaglandi-an may siyensya? Now I know why I haven’t been successful in this area. I have been doing it wrong all along: (1) I do not look them in the eyes; (2) I play hard to get or not interested and (3) I project myself as transparent and funny.
