The story Clash of the Titans is all about gods and goddesses.  Perseus, Medusa, Zeus, etc…They are just one of the characters that you could dig on to this story.
On April 1, 2010, it will be showed on the screens of Singapore.  It will be a great hit and hopefully a good one.
Have you ever wondered how they made this movie?  Jumping actors, killing beast all over the creeks and mountains is just an amazing sight for the adventure movie lovers.

Comparative Presidential Data:A Black Propaganda?

March 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Yet another day at my computer, looking for something new on what’s happening in our world.  An email caught my eye that has few introductory words complete with data in a tabular form.

The form consists of data from 2010 Election Presidential Candidates.  Each was presented with their best achievements and sprayed with the fragrance of  politics.

One candidate caught my attention, Noynoy Aquino.  His records were astonishingly out of this world!  So I said, ok, are these data were really true or yet another Black Propaganda for this person?

Take a look at the data taken from the email.

Comparative Presidential Candidates 2010 Data

I was surprised that this man, Noynoy Aquino, has all the zeros in him.  Where did the data came from?  Is this really the truth about the man?

Intrigued by that e-mail, I searched Noynoy’s website and found his achievements as a politician.

The data from the email didn’t match on the official website’s data of Noynoy Aquino.  I got some of them to show you his achievements.

Aquino is a leading member of the Liberal Party. He currently holds the position of Vice Chairman of the Liberal Party, having assumed the post on 17 March 2006. He was previously Secretary General of the party (1999-2002), Vice-President of the Luzon Liberal Party (2002-2004), and Secretary General of the party (2004-16 March 2006).

Aquino was elected to the House of Representatives in 1998, representing the 2nd District of Tarlac. He won re-election in 2001 and 2004, and served until 2007.

Aquino served on numerous committees as a member of Congress: the Public Order and Security, Transportation and Communications, Agriculture, Banks and Financial Intermediaries, Peoples’ Participation, Suffrage and Electoral Reforms, Appropriations, Natural Resources, and Trade and Industry committees (11th Congress), the Civil, Political and Human Rights, Good Government, Public Order and Security, Inter-Parliamentary Relations and Diplomacy committees (12th Congress), and the Banks and Financial Intermediaries, Energy, Export Promotion, Public Order and Safety committees (13th Congress). -source: http://www.noynoy.ph

Now, do not be lured by these false propaganda spreading in the net.  You must know the source of it and be your guide for you to choose who’s the best person to lead our country…OUR PHILIPPINES.

March 25, 2010 Leave a comment

“A sip of Gulp at 7-Eleven on a hot summer day quenches your thirst away.”

While I was sipping and looking outside the window of 7-Eleven.  Presidential Candidates 2010 banners are scattered in every inch of walls and hanging, dangling on to the street lights.

I looked around the 7-eleven store, took a deep breath and said, “Thank God, no views of banners and election paraphernalia inside this store.”  Then took another sip of Gulp and…”What the…this cup has it!”

7-Eleven in 2000, started a Presidential poll in the United States using their coffee cup, where customer choose a cup for George W. Bush or Al Gore and in 2004 for George W. Bush and John Kerry.

But, it didn’t stopped there.  In 2008, another poll from 7-eleven was conducted for Barack Obama and John McCain and that closely matched the official election results.

Philippine Embassy in Singapore

March 21, 2010 Leave a comment

I’ve accompanied a friend to the Philippine Embassy in Singapore.  It was located at 20 Nassim Road, Singapore 258395.

Yes I know it’s Sunday, but they’re open ’til 3pm.

How to get to the Philippine Embassy?

You could ride a bus and alight at the nearest bus stop at Tanglin Road then walk your way through Nassim Road.

If you are taking the train, you can alight at the Orchard Station (NS22), walk pass through Shaw Center and enter the Nassim Road before Tanglin  Shopping Center. This is a 1-km walk, better stretch those muscles.

Try to trace the location on the map labelled letter A.

If you need to process any document, proceed first to the entrance gate and log in to the record book and the guard on duty will give you the form to fill up.

These are the photos inside the embassy premises.  We arrive at 11am and the sun was shining hot.

Waiting Area

My friend is the 220th person for that day.

Few tips: Bring with you all the necessary documents that you have, passports, birth certificate and everything.  Bring extra shirt, ballpen, a bottle of water, umbrella and of course…money worth for the fee.
