One Blow

One of my friend Remhard asked me to make wallpaper for him, he wants it to be like a Broadway Poster or something like a Hollywood Movie Promotion, he said he will put it on frame. Ehem, since I really want to learn how to used Adobe Photoshop, I agreed to him only if he’ll buy me Pepsi.

I used different pictures to achieve this look; I can’t explain to you how I came up with this, because I am just doing some experiment with his picture.

So here it is.
Rehard Robo’s ONE BLOW!!!

And YES!!! He is GAY. Remhard is a fabulous person, he loves fashion as well as music, and he has around 5,000 music in his lappy, he loves branded product as well, that’s why we click together, he thinks I am nice, I think he is nice too, he thinks I can be trusted, I think he can be trusted too, he thinks I’m Cute, I think he is right (Yeah), He also loves interior design, he is the one who decorated their room, he loves curtain and scented candles, he also likes to pose like me.

I met him July 5, but I first talk with him over the phone on June 22, when I first arrive here in Saudi, I was in Dammam then, and they are in Riyadh, after about two weeks, our company sent me here to Riyadh to work, he is the first one who helped me to coped up with the life style of Arabs, I owed him many things including my old slack that I used to wear, he gave me that one before when he found out that I don’t have any slacks.

Below is the picture I used for each layer.

I am still in the process of learning Adobe Photoshop.. Cool hah...

Anyway... That's it.
Thanks you for reading..

You might be wondering why the sadden I am writing my blog entry in English lately, well the reason is "NOTHING... I JUST WANT TO... JOKE!!!", I was doing a regular blog hopping, when I crashed into this Blog owned by an American Lady, actually I am not sure if she’s an American or Canadian, it’s hard to distinguish, for she did not mentioned her nationality, but if given a chance to hear the way she talks, then I can determine her nationality, because I know the different between the American and Canadian accent, as well as Australian. This is something I’ve learned from my previous job in SITEL

Anyway, like what I’ve said, I was doing a regular blog hopping when I crashed into her site, I got interested and fascinated with her topic, it was about pasta, I super love pasta, especially if it is in white sauce, I want to learn how to cook it, so I read her blog, because I want to get a tips on how to cook a quick pasta meal.

Along the way, while I am reading, I was imagining things, like I am a chef, wearing an apron and that large tall hut that chef always wears every time they are cooking (I don’t know what’s the name for it), I was craving for pasta that time, I am hungry already and craving to death for pasta, good thing we always have pasta in our cafeteria during lunch time here in our office.

Anyway, my post is not about pasta, I just want to use it to make my blog a little bit long and to add some spice, my post is about why I am writing in English lately, well dude “EAT MY ENGLISH", because while I am reading her blog I found out that the sentences and grammars she is using is not proper, I won’t say it’s a wrong grammar, but instead it’s not proper, she is not using the correct tenses in her blog, the correct usage and the subject verb agreement, almost all of her entry are like these, she is an American or something, she should know how to use proper English, but she’s not using it, I am not really good when it comes to English Grammar but at least I can be able to determine if your grammar is correct or not, at least in few sentences ehehehhe, I am not fluent but I can speak spontaneously with less pillars.


After reading her blog, I’ve said to myself, she is an American but she is not shy to write down something even her grammar is not proper, she just write and write and she doesn’t mind her sentences, so that’s it, I begun writing in English, who cares, at least I tried, also, it’s like Filipino, we often writes in Filipino but we are not aware that we are not using the “Tamang Pangungusap at Balarila”, we don’t mind as long as we know that the readers would understand what we are trying to say.

So this is the reason why I suddenly started to write in English.

And Also I was inspired by SEY and MAYEN and some other Filipino bloggers who writes in English.

And also (again) I want to practice writing in English. Bleh…

I have visited hundreds of American blogger and some of them doesn’t care about their grammars. Thanks to them, I was inspired.

“EAT MY ENGLISH” (is a Restaurant Bar located along Metro Walk, Beside Muchos, Ortigas Center, hahahha,,,, I so love this place)

Response to my yesterday’s Post Question number
What is your greatest Fear?
- Claustrophobia, Be locked in a room with no way out, or no scape.

What is it? Is it a decease or just sort of behavioral disorder?

According to WIKIPEDIA:
Claustrophobia (from Latin claustrum "a shut in place" and Greek φόβος, phóbos, "fear") is the fear of having no escape and being closed in (opposite: claustrophilia). It is typically classified as an anxiety disorder and often results in panic attack, and can be the result of many situations or stimuli, including elevators crowded to capacity, windowless rooms, and even tight-necked clothing. The onset of claustrophobia has been attributed to many factors, including a reduction in the size of the amygdala, classical conditioning, or a genetic predisposition to fear small spaces.

Claustrophobia is usually described as a fear of enclosed places. A more accurate description might be 'a fear of not having an easy escape route' because for anyone who experiences this phobia this is the predominating feature - you feel a need to be able to get out or get home, quickly.

I had this phobia ever since I was a child, I am so afraid of going inside the elevator alone, and up to now, I am still,   I remember the first time I went to PBCom Tower in Makati and applied in one of the offices there, I am afraid to get inside the elevator alone, I still have to wait for somebody to take that elevator before I will get in, I remember I would pretend that I am sending a text message to somebody so that no one would notice the I am not taking that elevator because I am alone.

I am also afraid of any close door room or windowless, as I enter a building, the first thing I notice or look for is the exit door, without that in my sight, I am already terrified.

I tell you how it’s like to have this kind of phobia, every time I am in this situation, it seems like that I can’t breathe,   I can’t move, I can’t think, I am nervous, worried, tense, I feel uneasy, I couldn’t calm down.

If I am not mistaken, I got this phobia when I was still a child, I was playing hide and seek with my two brothers in our backyard, when a group of children went to our gate and watched us playing, there is nothing wrong with it, we always welcome them to join us, but that day, there’s these two boy who tease us, telling us “hoy bata, suntukan tayo” I got mad and immediately closed the gate, then after that I heard somebody cried, so I open the gate again and I saw that little girl crying while holding her thumb, it’s bleeding, I heard someone said “hala ka… lagot… naipit ang kamay niya….” Natanggalan ng kuko, so that’s it, I was frighten, of course I would, because I was still a child, I was about 7-8 years old then, to make the story even more complicated, the father of that little girl is the craziest guy in our neighborhood, he was always drunk every night, and every time he is drunk he always had troubles, madalas nakikipag away siya, at kapag nakikipag away na, expect mo na kukuha na yan ng itak at makikipag tagaan sa kainuman, hindi ko na alam kung ilan na ang nakasagupa niya at ilang beses na siyang nakulong,  so ayun, kapag nakainom na siya at nagwawala na, magaaway narin sila ng asawa niya, at madalas, sinasabi ng asawa niya na “tumigil kana sa pagwawala dyan, kahit yung anak mo, muntik ng maputol ang kamay dahil inipt ng gate at umuwi ng umiiyak, wala karing ginawa” so ayun na naman ulit, magaaway na naman sila ng asawa niya, hindi lang kasi siya makalapit sa akin noon, kasi takot sila sa Papa ko at sa mga uncle ko, and as a child, kapag nagwawala na ang hinayupak na yun, takot ako parati, I want to escape, I remember, I will stay in our school until 6pm, I will wait for my father to be home, because I am afraid, I remember I couldn’t sleep well at night because I can hear his voice shouting outside and looking for someone who would fight him, and somebody would tell him to go to our house and look for me, imagine I was only 7-8 years old that time.
Every time my father left for work, I always had this planned of escaping, I am afraid that he might do something wrong to me when my father is out, eeeiiiiii!!! Good thing my lola is always there for me, and almost all of my uncles are always around, they never left 
me alone in the house.

But it was just my conclusion, I really don’t know how I got this phobia, basta takot lang talaga ako sa mga sarado at masisikip na lugar, kahit gaano pa ito kaganda, basta alam kong nakakulong ako… sigurado.. kinakabahan na ako.

I don’t know what to do with this… but somehow… through research I manage to resolve my problem… when I was still in Manila, with full courage in my heart, I tried to take the elevator alone, yeah!!!! GOD ALLAH knows how frighten I am, pero… I manage to survive… that time.. akala ko mamamatay na ako sa takot… but when I get out alive… yeahhhhh…. Sinubukan ko ulit..

Facing your fear is not easy… but the only way to survive in this so called life is to fight, kaya you have to fight and conquer your feel.

Yeah… pero kahit ano pa man yan… takot parin ako.. until now… ehehehehe…

Yun lang…

Soul to Squeeze

For the past three days, I’ve been working on this project and last night, I just finished it, yeah, I am crazy, I know, you don’t have to say it, I admit, I am one of those wanna be star, ehehhehe,

it’s ok,

I just missed watching this lately.
I just missed the Band.
The VJ’s.
The Music.
The fun.
My past.

Since I became addicted to blogging, I am worried about what to post, because I always wanted to give you something new every day, I want to make you happy and smiled just a little bit, so that it makes you feel better, and every time I do that, a self fulfillment is what I always felt. With this new video, I hope I could help you travel back in time, to the days where Music was still lyrics.

So here it it.

Soul to Squeeze.


I posted this one here in our office, so I don’t know if I successfully posted it or not, because flash player is disabled in our office…. So just let me know if I successfully did.

All credit goes to my ever favorite band: Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Earth Hour

It’s Earth Hour Again

Have we done anything
Are we safe
Are we in danger

Global Warming



I support Earth Hour



Since it’s our rest day today, we decided to go to Batha, an open market to all nationalities here in Saudi Arabia, Batha served as tambayan and meeting place for all Filipinos as well as other nationalities like India, Bengali, Nepalese and some other more. We went there just to hang out and also to look for some cheap things to buy, I always go to this place every week ends.

Today we went to Batha around 6pm; it’s late already because we still have a work tomorrow, but I have to go there to meet someone, a dear friend from Zamboanga City, he treat me to Jollibee and buy me a load for my cellphone (wow what a nice friend), but you know what, what makes this day different from the other is that, while roaming around and looking for something, I saw this one particular Potato Chips, and I know that this is from the Philippines.

Philippine product is common out here specially food, like can goods, noodles, biscuit and also cosmetics and more, I was supposed to buy pandesal in one of the Filipino bakery here when I saw this Potato Chips, I smiled very wide when I read the name and it says “Vcut” I grab immediately four because this is one of my favorite snacks, when I was still in the Philippines I always buy Vcut every time I watch movies in theater, every time I am working, while I’m talking to our customer over the phone I am eating Vcut, every time I go to sari-sari store I always ask if they have Vcut.

I really miss eating Vcut, Good thing I found some store selling Vcut here in Riyadh, I love Vcut, I love this food more than any other Potato Chips out there.

Thank you...

Like Houdin

If you are frequently using Google as your search engine you might be prompted with the image shown blow, the image is a man with a handcuff’s on in his hand, This is what I really like about Google, they shows different image on their Google banner each time you visit their site. One time they put Pacman and you can actually play it using your arrow keyboard.

Well!!! awhile ago, I was supposed to search for an image which I will use for my new blog entry, I was surprised to see this image when I open Google, because I know just exactly who’s this man is, he is Erik Weisz or better known as Harry Houdini, a Hungarian-born American magician and escapologist, stunt performer, actor and film producer noted for his sensational escape acts. He was also a skeptic who set out to expose frauds purporting to be supernatural phenomena.

He was one of the most spectacular escape artists and one of the well known celebrity magicians in his time, he claimed that he only needs to see the tricks two or three times and he will surely know how it’s being done. He also claimed that he can take any blow to the body above the waist without injury, this also cause his death.

One student took the test and punched him hard in his stomach and causes abdominal bleeding which force him to go to the hospital, he was admitted in the hospital and confined in Room 401 and died after seven days after on October 31, 1926 at the age of 52.


Harry Houdini is not his real name, Harry is his nickname and Houdini is taken from the name of his magician mentor Robert Houdin and he just added the letter “I” in the last part of the name which means in French “Like Houdin”.

The only person who fooled Houdini in terms of Magic was Dai Vernon A.K.A The Professor A.K.A The father of Close up Magic. Houdini was at the top of his career as a celebrity magician when 14 years old Dai Vernon approached him and asked him if he can perform magic to him. Dai Vernon then performed the magic tricks called “The Ambitious Card” which popularized again by David Blaine on TV and he call it “The Fruit Look”.

The name of MTV’s Room 401 TV special was taken from the Room of the same number where Harry Houdini was confined before he died.

Houdini developed the Chinese Torture Cell trick fourteen years before he died and performed it numerous times.

March 24, 1874 to October 31, 1926

About two months ago, my younger brother “Edz” asked me to make wallpaper for his newly born baby, so as I went through his album, I’ve notice that his wife “Thadz” love to buy a Mickey Mouse stuff for their baby, so I decided to come up with this wallpaper. I hope you like it.

I’ve used different Mickey Mouse Picture to make this cutie-cute-cute wallpaper and I am happy that they appreciated my work…

Anyways, I am not really good with Adobe Photoshop, no body taught me how to use it, I teach myself, and after a day by day, long hours and hours of reading and watching an online tutorial and several practices, I can be able to manipulate picture in a simplest effect or design… weeee…

But I know am still amateur and there is still a lot to learn and my knowledge is still way too far to be called as professional, I am practicing a lot, because I am planning that after my contract with my current employer, I will exit and apply as Graphic Designer or Web Designer, I started reading about Adobe and now I am begging to use Dreamweaver 9, but I am not sure, as of now I am not yet certain about my plan, I just thought that I should practice earlier so that if ever I finalized everything, I am already prepared.

But as of now just take a good look of my work in Adobe.

Short Term Goal

This are the things that I want to have for this year or just before my first vacation next year to the Philippines, and I am willing to give it all just to satisfy myself and pursue my dreams, after all this is one of the reasons why I am here in Saudi.

DSLR Camera
I always wanted to become a photographer, ever since I was child this is already one of my dreams, I remember before I used to play with our very unique manual Kodak Camera which my father bought when he went to Manila, I really love photography most specially if I am the subject.

Since I lost my PSP three years ago, I planned to replace it but up to now I haven’t yet done it, I always end up buying things which is not really useful and unnecessary to my personality, every time I already have the money to buy it, there is always something else bothers me or a friend who would invite me to travel somewhere else.
Smart Phone (Blackberry or iPhone)
Ever since Cellphone was invented and has become a necessary  to our day to day lives, I realized that I have never bought a brand new one for myself, I have changed my phone a thousand times but none of them are new, it’s always a second hand gadget from Isitan Recto. Neyehehehe. My Cellphone right now is K800i Sony Ericson I bought it from Quiapo sometimes two years ago and her name is Sonya Erika.


I already have one now, I just bought it last December, it’s an i5 Toshiba Satellite and I named her Mustaza, ehehhe, I’ve been through a lot of times with her already, most specially when I become addicted to Blogging, I always let her sit in my laps while writing a blog. But even though I already have one maybe I will buy Net Book. Sony Vaio (What do you think)?.

Branded Wears
I admit, I am not into style or any, I am more into brand name, I am always like that ever since, I studied in public school in high school as well as in college but I never wears an ordinary name of shirt or pants, I always go with the names, some of the cloths that I already have now are True Religion Jeans, Reply, Diesel Shoes, Armani, CK, and some Penshoppe and Bench (oppps) love your own…

This is just my short term goal for now, I am not sure maybe I will add more these coming months, anyways… this is not being ambitious or being a social climber, but ever since I broke up with my former GF, I have learned to put boundaries for everything, I have learned to planned and set a time table for myself, since 2008, I became more optimistic in life,  more positive in everything I does, I believe we should have something to aim at, so that we will be inspired all the time.
My long term goal… haha… Good Family, Nice House, Loyal Friend and Stable Business.

Thanks for reading.

99 Memories
