Computer in trouble...

I really hate our computer. Last week, when I arrived here at home, I use the computer. I was busy blogging when all of a sudden the computer turned off. I thought there was a brown out or something. Then my sister told me that it is always like that. I asked her if they scan the computer for viruses and she said yes, they also updated it. but then I've found out that they just keep on updating the anti-virus but didn't really scan the computer. *lol* When I check the firewall settings, it's turned off! Wwaaahh!!! I'm sure our computer has a lot of virus now. I downloaded Avast anti-virus because AVG; the one we we're using can't really heal or delete the viruses it has found. After downloading, I scan our computer using Avast and deleted some of the Trojan horse and worms it has detected. Right up to this moment our computer would still turn off suddenly and I don't know what to do na. It's kinda irritating when you were in the middle of something and then ***** suddenly it turned off... waaahhhh.... Can't use it properly, when I am blogging I click the 'save now' button every now and then, afraid that the blog post I am typing wouldn't be recovered when it will turn off again. *sigh*

Fushigi Yuugi

Would you believe that I've finished watching the whole Fushigi Yuugi series in just two nights? I am so hooked up with it, that's why... lol... I first saw this on T.V. at GMA network but unfortunately they stopped it and change to another series. I really like watching this before, so now that I've got the chance to watch it, wala na gyu'y tulugay... hahahaha...

Junior high school student Miaka Yūki is under a lot of pressure to pass the entrance exam for the competitive Jonan Academy. Her best friend, Yui Hongo, agrees to apply for the same school so that they can go together. While at the library one day, Miaka and Yui come into contact with a strange book there, known as The Universe of the Four Gods. As a result of reading this book, they are then transported into the novel's universe.

The series describes the various trials that the two teenagers face, both quest-driven and personal. Miaka would discover that her greatest enemy would lie in her own best friend, Yui, due to a series of events set in motion. Feeling betrayed, the two oppose one another as priestesses, bringing together their own respective warriors and vying for the chance to be granted three wishes by the gods whom they hope to summon.

The Peak

Riding the Tram on our way up to The Peak.... wweeeeee....

Built over 100 years ago, the tram climbs at an improbable angle, but affords some excellent views over the city below.


Officially named Victoria Peak, the Peak is a mountain directly above Central in Hong Kong. It is also documented as The Peak locally, and Mount Austin. The mountain is located in the western half of the Hong Kong Island. With an altitude of 552 m (1,810 ft), it is the highest mountain on the island, although far from the highest Tai Mo Shan in the territory. It is also known to have the highest land value in the world, with many of the Super-Rich residing here. Because of its view, history and spectacular location Victoria Peak is strongly attached with an air of prestige.


Thanks to its height it was the residence of choice for many of the city's early colonial administrators, who were trying to escape the oppressive humidity and persistent mosquitoes in the city below. Nowadays, rock stars, politicians and the city's playboys call the Peak home. Property up here is the most expensive real estate in the world, a sale of 12 Mount Kellet in 2006 went for a very reasonable $5,417 per square foot. The Peak has continued to be attractive thanks to the lack of humidity, stunning views of the city and it's greenness.

Primarily, the best city view in the world. Hong Kong's stunning cityscape is no better seen than at the top of the Peak. This can be viewed via the Peak walk, which takes you on a circle of the mountain top taking in views of both the city and the South China Sea. The cityscape view remains one of the greatest man made views on Earth.

The two complexes, the and Peak Galleria, feature a host of restaurants and coffee bars. The Peak Tower, which has just undergone a multi-million dollar redevelopment, also contains a viewing platform at its top and Madam Tussauds at its bottom. The Peak Tram will deliver you right into the belly of the Peak Tower.


Day and night are both spectacular for viewing, however, if you need to choose, the neon lights of Hong Kong's giant skyscrapers are most majestic at night. Make sure that the day isn't too cloudy or polluted; otherwise you'll have a wasted trip.

We Will Rock You

Got the chance to watch the We Will Rock You Musical at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and it was really great, a show that one should never miss... Can't get enough with it, hehehe...

Cameras and Videos are not allowed inside the theatre but can't help to take a few shots... (pabuyag kaayo hehehe).

We Will Rock You is a collaboration between Brian May and Roger Taylor of rock band Queen and writer/director Ben Elton. The show, which Features more than 26 of the group's hits including Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions and Another One Bites the Dust, has been running in London since 2002 and been performed all over the world. Hong Kong is part of an Asia-Pacific tour that includes New Zealand, South Korea and Singapore.

Ayesa, 38, played the lead role for two years in London. "When I started doing it I realised, "This is the greatest job I've ever had". Every single night I do the show l feel like I'm doing it for the first time." The show is set in a future world ruled by a company called Globalsoft. "People are not allowed to make music for themselves, or think for themselves. It's a very sanitised, boring world and their only friends are their Facebook friends" says the singer.

Ayesa plays Galileo, who receives psychic messages from musical heroes of the past and joins a group of rebels called the Bohemians to defeat the evil Company and set the world free through rock'n'roll. He loves the message behind the show "It's a very good moral ... you need to fight all the people who tell you you must not be yourself."

Although the piece of "Rock theatre " pays tribute to Queen's music. Ayesa says it appeals to more than just the band's fans. "You have old fans, new fans, grandparents who love it because it's funny, it's exciting and there are some very touching moments as well." Featuring a cast of 30, We Will Rock You is a spectacle of lasers, pyrotechnics and video. "And the sound - this is probably the loudest show you will ever see on stage. I don't call it a musical, it's more like a rock concert set on stage."

Born in the Philippines, Ayesa's family migrated to Australia when he was two years old: he grew up-in Sydney. He played in bands and dreamed of being a rock star but got into musical theatre in high school "as a way to meet girls". At 19, he broke off his studies to play Ritchie Valens in Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story in Sydney, then London. He also tried to break into the record industry, with little luck. In the end he decided his pursuit of a career in pop music would only make him miserable, but "musical theatre is something I love doing and it loves me. so let's go with it".

There followed a string of big shows including Rent, Grease and Fame, on the last of which Ayesa met his wife, dancer Simone De La Rue. Ayesa was appearing in the West End production of Rent in 2002 when May asked him to audition for We Will Rock You. He says his two years as Galileo was "the most magical time of my life, l loved it. I bought a house, we were settled. I thought. "life cannot get any better than this."

But the lure of rock stardom remained strong and Ayesa left the show to take part in Rock Star INXS, the 2005 reality TV series in which Australian band INXS set out to choose a new singer among 15 contestants picked from 20,000 applicants. Ayesa came third. "By the end of the show I was a nervous wreck. I didn't think I could sing, I questioned everything that I was, everything that I did." Many viewers thought Ayesa's sunny personality and unfailing niceness were not rock star material. Meeting him, "nice" seems a fitting adjective but asked if he has a portrait in his attic growing old and ugly, Ayesa roars with laughter. He says May is "the ultimate rock star, and one of the nicest guys in the world. So the people who stay I'm too nice for rock'n'roll can go f*** themselves!"

Ayesa is thankful for the doors reality TV opened, bringing him a devoted fanbase and his dream of a recording contract. His first album. MiG, will be released in Hong Kong to coincide with the run of We Will Rock You. Now based in New York, he hopes to continue his recording and theatrical careers in tandem but never plans anything ahead "because a sure way of making God laugh is to tell him your plans".

For now he is looking forward to rocking Hong Kong with the show. "It's the joy of singing these songs which are probably some of the greatest rock songs ever written," says Ayesa, who has performed here in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber (1996) and Fame (2002). "And you see the transition in some of the songs from being bombastic and flamboyant to being so heartfelt and sincere. You really see the audience go, 'Oh!' it's so unexpected, so that's really great and I hope Hong Kong audiences will respond in the same way."

There's no place like HOME...



At the Hong Kong International Airport, waiting for my flight...


Ride the MTR to our respective gates...



Inside the plane.....

I arrrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport at around 1 a.m. from Hong Kong, still dizzy because I have this 'motion sickness' and a bit sleepy but excited at the same time. Went to the Domestic Airport, bought a ticket to Davao and waited for my flight.


Arrived at Davao International Airport around 7 a.m. While I was sitting on the plane the song's lyrics 'I'm coming home' keeps on repeating on my head... hehehe... Excited? Yeah, I am...





And now I'm finally home... It feels good to back to my hometown... It's been months already, almost three months I think, hehehe... I'm happy to be back, missed Davao City... I ate breakfast, missed eating pandesal hehehe... After eating I went to our room and lay down to sleep.... Been awake most of the time.... zzzzzzz........




By the way, to all Davao Bloggers out there, if you have an EB or whatsoever, ingana ko ninyo ha? Para magkailahay pud ta ninyo... hehehe...

Ruinas de S. Paulo


Photo by: Miah Laborte using Sony Ericsson K810i

The Ruins of St. Paul's refer to the facade of what was originally the Church of Mater Dei built in 1602-1640, destroyed by fire in 1835, and the ruins of St. Paul's College which stood adjacent to the Church. As a whole the old Church of Mater Dei, St. Paul's College and Mount Fortress were all Jesuit constructions and formed what can be perceived as the "Acropolis" of Macau. Close by, the archaeological remains of the old College of St. Paul stand witness to what was the first western-style university in the Far East, with an elaborate academic programme. Nowadays, the facade of the Ruins of Saint Paul's function symbolically as an altar to the city.

Fortaleza do Monte



Mount Fortress.

Built in conjunction with the Jesuits from 1617 to 1626, this was the city's principal military defense structure. Built by the Jesuits as their headquarters at the same time as St. Paul's, the Monte Fortress provided ab effective defense against attack by Dutch in 1624. The fortress was equipped with cannons, military barraks, wells and arsenal that held sufficient ammunition and supplies to endure a siege lasting up to two years. The fortress covers an area of 10,000 square metres, in the shape of a trapezoid. The four corners of the fortres protude to form bulwarks. Today it houses the Museum of Macau, which occupies the foundation and platform with exhibits that illustrate the life of macau and it's people over the past four centuries, emphasizing the bi-cultural character of the city with it's different faiths and festivals, social customs, architecture, sports, art and cuisine. Special attention is also given to the merging cultures to create the distinctive Macanese society.

Old man



I always see this old man lying there at night along Largo do Cordoaria... I know it's inappropriate to take this photo and post it here, and I'm sorry old man. I pitied him but have nothing to do. I guess in every country, no matter how rich they are, there are still people like this old man somewhere in it's crooked streets, hungry and no place to stay.

Photoshoot 2



Nakisaw-saw sa photoshoot ng iba, hehehe.. Can't help it eh, gusto ko talaga magtake ng pictures. Nauna pa ko nagpost ng photos nila. hehehe...

It's so easy to go up here than going down. Come climb with me here at Hac Sa. It's really cool! :)

Climbing and Blogging in the rocks, ain't it great? Hehehe..


Praia de Hac Sa

Finally we're here now at Hac Sa beach, by the way the term "Hac Sa" means "black sand". The place's peaceful and beautiful, isn't it? Would you believe we just thought of going here just last night? Hehehe.. Despedida daw kay mulakaway nako...

Scandalous Keychain

One of my boardmate saw this key chain with an image of Sto. Niño. The sad part is that they're (the ones who made that thing) making it as a laughing tool. Look closely at the photo and you'll see something. Not a good example to be shown especially to the minors. How could someone make fun of it, especially to a saint? Aren't their conscience knocking them? What they were doing might bring laughter to them but they didn't know they've insulted the Catholic Religion. I just hope they would realize what they're doing. Let's just pray for those people...

Mobile Blogging

Yesterday, I was browsing some sites on my mobile phone, taking photos and tried to edit some of it... I was testing out my new phone and then I discovered something really cool. I tried to send my photo via bluetooth when I saw there are other options on the side bar like:
SEND As picture msg, As email, To blog, Via Bluetooth and Via infrared.
 
I was curious on the third one, Send To BLOG? Hmm... curious of it so I tried pressing the button and saw the Blogger's icon (I'm now having an idea on what is it hahaha) and so I tried give the picture a Title and Description. My first mobile blog post was 'Naning Gavin', and right after it was published, I received a text message from blogger.
It says: To edit your blog, use your computer to go to this page: http://go.blogger.com
Claim token (type of password): 5*****
Blog address: http:coxeel377.blogspot.com

Wow! I thought I have a new blogger account again? waaahh... I tried browsing the site on my phone and there I entered the Claim token and voila! I saw my new Mobile Blog... I was thinking, I have another blog to maintain again.. waaahh... have lots of blog already... hahahaha...

But I have found out that if I have already an account at blogger I can merged my Mobile Blog from the current blog I am using... Wow! COOL right? I can easily post a blog directly on the internet with my mobile phone... Cool, isn't it? And by the way it is FREE, blogger doesn't charge you any cents per blog post. Now that's way too COOL again! hahahaha... But they've said that your operator might charge you for the data traffic, but as for me, CTM, which is my mobile network provider here in Macau, offers FREE Wap browsing. I am so loving this! *big grin* Now I don't have to go to the internet cafe to blog, I can just do so with a few clicks from my phone. How amazing that can be? *lol* I could be more addicted to blogging now that I've found this hahahaha...

If you're mobile phone's carrier is Sony Ericsson (like me), you're now ready for MOBILE BLOGGING because Blogger Mobile is built into some Sony Ericsson camera phones, so you can post to your blog with just a few clicks.. If not? you can still do so. You can send text or photos from your mobile device to go@blogger.com they'll be automatically posted to your new blog. They'll reply with the address of your new mobile blog, plus a claim code for verification. Make a post to your new mobile blog, or use the claim code to link your phone to a different blog. And now you're welcome to Mobile Blogging! *grin*

For iPhone users, Phones without MMS can still post to Blogger via email with Mail2Blogger.

It's so COOL!!! hehehe... I am so lovin' this!
