It’s halloween eve… I’m stuck in the office… chatting with customers… Still working during holidays!!! There is an on going costume party here… (Custume Party nga ba??) hmmm… some wear their spoooookiest costume… They are having fun of their looks, Some put on makeup… prostetics?… masks… Our theme was GOTHIC… e nasan yung mga gothic people?? parang wala nga ko makita e… KJ kasi kami… ehehehe… ayun nakablack kami… yun na… costume ba to? Parang wala lng… Punk style… Duh… where’s the essence of Gothic… anyway… here’s a fact about halloween….

HalloweenHallowe'enHalloween, or Hallowe’en, is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, Halloween festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses”, carving jack-o-lanterns, and viewing horror films. Halloween originated from the Pagan festival Samhain, celebrated among the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain[citation needed]. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century. Halloween is now celebrated in several parts of the western world, most commonly in Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom and occasionally in parts of Australia and New Zealand.

The term Halloween (and its alternative rendering Hallowe’en) is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the eve of “All Hallows’ Day”,[1] also which is now known as All Saints’ Day.

Many European cultural traditions, in particular Celtic cultures, hold that Halloween is one of the liminal times of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world, and when magic is most potent (according to, for example, Catalan mythology about witches and Irish tales of the Sídhe).

Hiding Inside Myself

30 10 2007

I’ve been so alone all my life
I couldn’t give my heart to anyone
Hiding in myself was a man
Who needed to be held like everyone

The days moved into years
I look for warmth between the tears
It never ever found me
Never ever found me
Yes, I did seem to grasp at straws
They surely broke all the time

So I hid inside
(Till) I almost died
Yes I hid inside and I cried
A loving heart in a sensitive man
Hiding inside myself

Then you came out of nowhere
I could not believe my heart
I didn’t know how to tell you
Didn’t know where to start
I know you understand

When I hid inside
I almost died
Oh, I hid inside and I cried
A loving heart in a sensitive man
I know you’ll understand


I love you…

Do I really have FRIENDS?

30 10 2007

This question bothers me this past few days… I just can’t explain why… I think this bothers me because I’m having doubt on my friends… and I’m having doubts on myself… I don’t feel happy… though it doesn’t show… oh yes! I’m a great pretender… 😦 ….

Types of friendship

Original Sin

30 10 2007

Original Sin is a 2001 movie starring Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas. It is based on the novel Waltz into Darkness by Cornell Woolrich. Jolie was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award in 2001 for Worst Actress for her work in Original Sin and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Most of the interest in Sin comes from the controversial sex scene between Banderas and Jolie, two of modern cinema’s most popular sex symbols.

Original Sin movie poster.jpgPlot summary

The movie flashes back and forth from the past to the present. A woman is awaiting her execution while she tells her story to a priest.

Luis Vargas …(Antonio Banderas), a wealthy Cuban businessman who seeks out an American wife, believes Americans represent the future, and that his own countrymen – and women – are mired in the past and their traditions. After months of corresponding with Julia Russell (Angelina Jolie), the day comes when she sails to his country to be his bride. Julia departs from the ship, looking nothing like the photos she’s sent prior to her voyage. Julia explains she wants more than a man who is interested in a pretty face, and that’s why she’s been deceptive – substituting a plain-looking woman in place of her own picture. Luis also admits to deception; he’s been misleading her into believing he’s a poor workingman, instead of the rich owner of a coffee company.

Luis and Julia wed within hours of her setting foot in Cuba. Passion and lust lie just below the surface as the two begin to discover each other over the next few days. Luis falls passionately in love with his new bride, while Julia seems to be fighting inner demons while holding herself back from too deep an emotional involvement.

Meanwhile, Julia’s sister Emily has been trying to contact her sister, justifiably worried about her after such a long trip to a strange land. Luis forces Julia to write back, fearing that if Julia continues to ignore Emily’s letters, Emily will assume something terrible has befallen her sister and might send the authorities to check on her welfare. Holding off as long as possible, Julia finally pens a letter to her sister, setting into motion the execution of Julia’s hidden agenda.

In order to assure that his wife has everything she wants, Luis adds Julia to his business and personal bank accounts, giving her free rein to spend as she pleases. Luis discovers Julia has run off with nearly all of his fortune, and then teams up with a detective, Walter Downs (Thomas Jane). Walter reveals to Luis he believes Julia to be an impostor and the intended wife to be dead by her hand, and that she may be working with someone. The two set out together looking for the thief and possible murderer.

Luis finds Julia and discovers she is actually working with Walter and she tells him a story of the two Americans teaming up for the scam. He believes she loves him and lies to Walter, but when confronted by him a fight breaks out and Luis shoots Walter. Julia, hardly bothered by the events, tells Luis to leave and buy train tickets and while he is gone we discover Walter loaded the gun with blanks. Julia appears to love Luis but Walter has too much control over her so she continues to work for him as Luis and her run off to live in secret with the supposedly dead Walter on their tail.

The two find a reasonable house and Luis throws away his promising future and opens himself to a living a life like hers, one filled with cheating and deception. One night Luis follows Julia and discovers Walter is alive and the two are still working together and she is going to poison her husband that very night. He returns home and waits for her, and when she arrives reveals he knows of her continuing deception and the plan, confesses his love for her once more and swallows the poisoned drink. Julia panics, flees with the dying Luis with Walter close behind. The married couple run into him at a train station; Walter is furious that Julia has betrayed him. While Walter holds a knife to her throat, Luis shoots him knocking him down, and Julia takes the gun shooting him one more time, killing him. She staggers away with her dying husband leaning on her.

The past and present finally meet as we hear the conclusion of Julia’s story and she asks the priest to pray with her. The next morning the guards come to her cell to find the priest in her clothing.

In another city, a beautiful woman enters a room in which a game is taking place. As she walks around the table occupied by gamblers, she thanks the men for allowing her to watch. Luis is one of the men, and while Julia signals him about the other players’ cards, he begins to tell the other occupants about a story of a woman and his deep love for her.

Hi guys, if you are familiar with this cartoon series I’m sure, kahit di ka mahilig sa basketball mahu-hook ka sa story nya… A while ago, papunta ko work I’ve seen another episode of this heart pounding basketball toon series… The episode wherein Shohoku fights team Kainan… The ending score is 88-90… They almost win… unfortunately, they ran out of time… I felt sad about that… Sakuragi cried a lot… sa kanya kasi yung last na bola… nagkamali sya ng pinasahan… he accidentally passed the ball to their opponent… 

— by Eugene Cheng

       Sports manga are often an overlooked genre, and there has not been an attempt yet to introduce this genre to the American comic market. The peoples of other countries, predominantly in the East, have long been following such stories.
  High school basketball? Who would have thought that manga dealing with high school basketball could be so riveting? Well, Inoue Takehiko proves that it indeed makes a great topic for storytelling with his popular SLAM DUNK series, which has given way to both a TV series, and a couple of theatrical movies. Just what makes this series so popular among basketball fans and non-basketball fans alike?
  One of the main reasons for the popularity of SLAM DUNK among basketball fans is the detail in his artwork. Inoue renders the basketball court and motion with surprising accuracy. It is obvious that Inoue is an avid fan of the National Basketball Association (NBA). But he does not lose those fans, who are not familiar with the rules of basketball either. He periodically supplies readers with explanations of certain terms or aspects of the game with a super-deformed version of himself (Dr. T). Of course, it helps to have familiarity with the game, but it is not a prerequisite for enjoying the series.

The Story

The main character of the story is Sakuragi Hanamichi, a first-year high school student who was unsuccessful in his endeavors to find agirlfriend in junior high school. Or more to the fact, he was dumped fifty times over the three years of junior high school. The fiftieth girl who rejected him admitted to him that she liked someone on the basketball team. So coming into Shohoku High School, Hanamichi had a bit of a bias against basketball. At the mere mention of the word, he would give a resounding head-butt to the unwitting speaker.
  But on the first day of school, he runs into a cute girl who asks our red-headed protagonist if he plays basketball. Sakuragi is rather tall for his age and is a fairly burly fellow because of the fights he and his friends tend to engage in. Naturally, Sakuragi falls head over heels for this girl, Haruko, and responds that he is indeed a “sportsman”. One thing leads to another, and Sakuragi ends up joining the basketball team.

The Starting Lineup

Sakuragi Hanamichi is a first year student. He plays the power forward position, is 188 centimeters tall, and weighs 83 kilograms. He eventually becomes a decent player after several issues. His most notable features are his red hair, his tenacity when playing, his ability to take massive amounts of punishment, and his rebounding skills. He often refers to himself as the “Rebound King”. He likes Akagi Haruko, but has not told her yet. He is at first disliked by Akagi Takenori, but eventually, he earns his grudging respect. Sakuragi has a penchant for giving people strange nicknames.
  Akagi Takenori is a third year student, the captain of the Shohoku Team, and Haruko’s older brother. He plays at the center position, is 197 centimeters tall, and weighs 90 kilograms. It is later revealed in the series that he, like Sakuragi, was a horrible basketball player at first. He has a flat-top haircut and looks a lot like New York Knicks co-captain Patrick Ewing. Sakuragi gives him the nickname of “Gori” which is short for “Gorilla”. Akagi is not too fond of this nickname, but it is appropriate because of his slam dunks, which the whole school refers to as the “Gorilla Dunk”. Akagi eventually tries to help Sakuragi become a better player and teaches him the skills he needs, despite their embarrassing first one-on-one game.
  Rukawa Kaede is another first year student. On most teams, it is unusual to have rookies on the starting roster, yet the current Shohoku team has two starting rookies. Rukawa was a superstar in junior high school and maintains his high level of play in high school. He plays at the small forward position, is 187 centimeters tall, and weighs 75 kilograms. His good looks and superior game play have made him the object of infatuation of many girls in the school, including Akagi Haruko. But Rukawa has no interest in women, and is always looking to elevate his game to the next level. When he plays, he is very selfish, and very rarely passes the ball. He has earned the nickname “Fox” from Sakuragi because of his sly attitude. He and Sakuragi become natural enemies.
  Miyagi Ryota is a second year student. He plays at the point guard position, is 168 centimeters tall, and weighs 59 kilograms. His dribbling and passing skills are excellent, but his height often becomes a disadvantage when playing against taller players. Nevertheless, Miyagi often steps up his game play up when this occurs. He is also somewhat of a delinquent, and gets into fights. He is in love with Ayako, the manager of the basketball team. At first, he and Sakuragi become enemies because of their natural antagonistic tendencies, but when they learn of each other’s unrequited love for another girl, they become fast friends. Sakuragi henceforth refers to Miyagi affectionately as “Ryo-san”.
  Mitsui Hisashi is a third year student who rejoins the team after a year of absence around the same time Miyagi joins. He plays at the shooting guard position, is 184 centimeters tall, and weighs 70 kilograms. In junior high school, he was declared Most Valuable Player because of his great shooting ability, in particular, for his ability to consistently make three point shots. Mitsui twisted his ankle in his first year and was forced to leave the team for a year. During that year he became quite a delinquent and joined a gang. All the while, he secretly wanted to return to the basketball team. With his appearance, Shohoku finally has the consistent back court scorer that it needed.

Give it a Shot

Even though I am an avid basketball fan, I found myself avoiding this series. Perhaps I was afraid of the injustices and inaccuracies that such a book might contain. Eventually, however, my curiosity got the better of me, and I picked up the first issue. Since then, I have been following the series with a near-fanatic fervor. Sakuragi’s antics amuse me, and I always look forward to seeing what the future brings. This is indeed quite an addicting series.
  SLAM DUNK has since ended its run in Shonen Jump, and Inoue Takehiko has moved on to start another basketball-related manga series.
