Pinay Supermodel

I was watching a weekend show on television and  happy to know that a beautiful and talented Filipina bagged the Ford Supermodel of the World 2011 title in the competition held in New York last January 22, 2011. Danica Magpantay  is the first ever Filipina to win the largest and most prestigious modeling competition. This is another great achievement to be proud of. Congratulations!

Cengage

I was happy to received an overseas call from My the other day. She is presently pursuing her master studies in UK. Miles apart from her family and friends is sad to think sometimes but instead she keeps busy and focus herself on her studies for future plans. One of her favorite place to spend time is the school library where british library newspapers can be found. Many interesting and related topics are there and it really help My especially in her researches. Book collections about psychology, marketing, communication/media, government & politics, arts & music and many more are there to serve the students' learning needs. My told me that studying overseas is a great learning experience. She even invited me to apply and join with her because she value the importance of career advancement while being abroad. I am already reading an internet site that offers this kind of program and  it interests me on that idea and hopefully looking forward for a realizable plans on my career.

Rainy Days

The weather is getting abnormal at the start of this year 2011. Last week was mostly sunny days and rainy for this week. I walked on the streets yesterday in umbrella because the rain never stopped from morning to evening. Now it is raining outside and it starts early this afternoon. Many places were affected by this continuous rainfall like landslides, floods etc. I hope the weather will be favorable in the next days.

Movie watch - The Tourist

The first movie that I watched this year 2011. It starred the beautiful actress Angelina Jolie (Elise) and a good actor Johnny Depp (Frank). A woman named Elise (Jolie) is being trailed in Paris by French police working with Scotland Yard. At a cafe, she receives a letter from Alexander Pearce, a former lover, with explicit directions to board a train to Venice, Italy, pick out a man who resembles him and make the police believe that this man is Alexander Pearce. Many beautiful scenes shot in Italy and  France and Angelina  Jolie is as gorgeous as ever. I watched her previous movie Salt and she was a great actress on that film. The film was thriller/comedy combined and I can give it a good rating.

Boats

One of the interesting topic that we chatted  with my overseas friend  was all about  his family vacation last week . I am so proud of him because aside from his very hectic schedule at work, he still managed to spent time with his family on this quality and memorable vacation in the norfolk broads. I saw their pictures and it was so nice to look at the beautiful natural scenery of the place. They passed through Acle which was an ideal place especially for boating holidays. It is considered to be the gateway to the marshscapes. It was the first time for my friend and his family to visit this place in England. For him it was a perfect choice for the family getaway. For a while they were able to savor the moments together without the hassle and stress of daily living. He told me that if ever I can visit him for a vacation, he would invite me for a tour in that place where holidays can truly be enjoyable. I am hoping that sometime soon it would be realized.

Friends Get together

I was so busy yesterday and there was no formal deal to met on Friday evening  for dinner. It was Kuyakoy who initiated and sent  text messages to me, LynLyn and Edjie that we would met in Buhangin. January 14 was LynLyns birthday and a good timing then because Edjie showed up to us after years of not seeing and keeping in touch about his whereabouts abroad. The dinner was sumptuous in a local restaurant - chicken/pork barbecue, fruit salad, kinilaw, coke lite, stir fried vegetables and  shrimps sinigang. A very satisfying treat that made the  conversation until 10:00pm. There were lots of updates about the life of Edjie who separated himself from the group for a while. Now he is back with the same punchlines "lots of payables,no money anymore". Anyway that was a happy get together with friends. I hope Libby could read some updates here.:)

City Breaks

I had a great conversation with my friend overseas a few days after January 1. She really enjoyed her vacation  last Christmas with her family. It has been her dream to spend  quality and memorable time with them and finally it was realized. It took her months of planning for the said trip and her chosen place was in Manchester. The whole family stayed in one of the luxurious Hoseasons manchester apartments. Very stylish and comfortable that truly felt like home. The amenities were so good as well as the friendly and personalized services.She even showed me a picture of  it (shown above) and I was so envious that I would like to spend a vacation in that place also. My friend and her family just did a wonderful and memorable break from the hassle and stress of daily living .  She told me that there are lots of beautiful destinations found on the site that I can check out. I am looking forward for my personal reservation before the first quarter ends.

The weather changes here in the city can be felt just after the New Year. Heavy rainfall last night until early in morning.
