    1. Thanks for posting this trivia for a change, the only thing that I knew sa mga binanggit mo sa list ay iyong first CD produced sa US which was of Bruce Springteen's album - Born In The U.S.A.

      And I will try to experiment iyong raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne.

    QUESTION AND ANSWER!

    Sabi nila, pagdating daw sa mga beauty contest. "There is no such thing as a wrong answer" dahil ang sagot ng kalahok ay base sa kanyang perspektib na hinubog ng kanyang pansariling karanasan, paniniwala at sa mga bagay na kanyang pinahahalagaan. Walang tamang sagot, ngunit madalas may isang sagot, pagsalaysay at pagtugon sa mga katanugan na palaging mangingibaw dahil marahil ang mga salitang ito ay totoo para sa marami at hindi lang sa nasabing kalahok.

    I agree, there is no such thing as a wrong answer, but I think there is a Wrong Question.




    Ang Q&A portion sa mga beauty contest katulad ng Bb. Pilipinas ay ang pinaka-aabangan ng manonood dahil ito ang bahagi kung saan kadalasan napagdedesisyonan kung sino ang karapat-dapat magwagi. Isang patunay rito ang ingay na ginawa ng pagkapanalo ni Janina San Miguel noong nakaraang taon dahil marami ang nagsabing hindi siya karapat-dapat sa titulo. Ganoon na lang ang ingay ng nangyari kay Janina noong nakaraang taon dahil sa kanyan…

    Haaay...naku!

    I've been planning to change my blog lay-out for about a month now. In fact, I already started with a semi-flash version of my blog (wow! flash?)which I plan to install once I purchase my own domain. However, today's lay-out change is totally unexpected and just like most unexpected change...it is very frustrating.

    I was supposed to change the lay-out of my test blog today but because my brain has been on vacation since April Fool's Day, I didn't really know what I was doing. I stupidly mistaken my actual blog as my test blog, so I wasn't even looking when I clicked on the save new template button. So instead, of working on the test blog. I ended up working on my blog which I really didn't intend to touch in the first place. For the time being, I'll just use this lay-out I made overnight.
