The President’s costly trips and how it could’ve helped the country instead.

Posted in news with tags , , on August 19, 2009 by rebelhunt

Well it looks like that the present Philippine President has been on a spending spree going in and out of the country. I was so disgusted when I saw the news today saying that all the expenses that she wasted from 2001 to 2009 didn’t really matter. Hello? didn’t matter? I guess it doesn’t matter for her because she’s up there spending and wasting a good part of the tax payers money on all of those stupid international trips. What the hell is she thinking? Those funds could’ve been used for some project to help the homeless and street kids make something out of their lives, but she would rather dine in some expensive restaurant outside the country. Doesn’t she get stomach cramps when she thinks of how she’s blowing away all that money for senseless drivel? I guess not because if it did, then she would’ve stopped country hopping and started focusing on our country’s problems.

ToyCon June 13, 2009 SM MegaMall

Posted in entertainment, news, others with tags , , on June 16, 2009 by rebelhunt

Being a toy collector, toy conventions are always a good place to look for good deals and hard to find toys and me and my officemates were really excited for this years ToyCon. Thinking back to the success of last year’s ToyCon I was really expecting this year’s ToyCon to be even more kick ass than last year. However, I was a bit disappointed and at the same time happy that I didn’t find any great toys today because it did help me keep my savings account fat and healthy. On the other hand I was really expecting to find a toy that would really beckon me to pull my ATM card out of my wallet and withdraw a healthy lump of cash for a toy that I couldn’t resist buying.

And of course who could forget the Cosplayers? ToyCons are never complete without these hardcore Otakus who parade their favorite characters with homemade costumes that are both amazing and sometimes painful on the eyes. I’m trying to be mean here but let’s face it, some of those costumes are not even worth a second look. But this year’s ToyCon did boast a lot of amazing Cosplayers that I found really impressive. A couple of my favorites were the Ranma 1/2 costumes, a hot Morrigan cosplayer, just browse through the pictures and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Waterspout off Manila Bay May 27, 2009

Posted in lifestyle, news, others with tags , , , , on May 28, 2009 by rebelhunt

Here in the Philippines we rarely get any freak weather phenomenon, and it’s a really big surprise if we did. Well, that surprise sure did happened yesterday at Manila Bay. People were both alarmed and amazed at this spectacle, which lasted about a couple of minutes. I was amazed and at the same time scared when I saw this. It was a good thing that the waterspout remained over water and didn’t decide to move to populated areas where it could’ve been catastrophic. It’s funny that this didn’t make the news last night, I guess people are still busy with all the Hayden Kho shit.

But this is something we shouldn’t take lightly. This kind of abnormal weather phenomenon is the effects of global warming and if we don’t do anything about it soon we may be seeing more than just waterspouts springing out of the wood work.
