The Hunger Games Cast

Personally, I really enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. It's just spectacular and I can't believe the obsession I had with the series. I can't wait to see the movie next year to see if that lives up to the book. The movie is set to come out on March 23,2012.

For those who haven't read the book, the story centers on Katniss Everdeen from District 12 who must survive a horrible televised fight to the death game. Each year the evil Government of Panem ( post-apocalyptic North America) hosts an event called the Hunger Games  where two tributes - a boy and a girl from each of the twelve districts are forced  to fight in an arena of death. The hunger games are held to remind and ensure that no district makes an attempt at a rebellion.  But Katniss ends up as a symbol of defiance.

Back to the movie, I've gotta say the perfect people were chosen for the movie , to start with we have Jeniffer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR



Hunger Games : Jeniffer  Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen
Hunger Games :  Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark

Hunger Games : Liam Hemsworth as Gale

Hunger Games :  Amandia Stenberg as Rue

Hunger Games : Alexander Ludwig as Cato

Hunger Games : Woody Harrelson as Haymitch

Hunger Games :  Elizabeth Bank as Effie

Hunger Games : Lenny Kravitz as Cinna

Online Karaoke - www.risingstars.ph


Who says Karaoke doesn't have its place in the WorldWideWeb? It's one of those things that you thought was a big joke until you realize the cold seriousness. Yes, we are talking about the online karaoke which takes the merry tradition of singing in the cyber realm. Why not? Well for me, it's a bit "awkward" ( not the right term to describe it), I prefer the old way, with the big sound box? I don't even know what to call it *laughs* Excuse my ignorance. Silly me. My sister argued "what difference would it make?" ughhh. I beg to disagree. This may be considered another triumph for those who shunned the world of karaoke just because they don't want their cracking voice be heard by passers by unless of course they'll record and share the song for everyone to see and hear. We are indeed living in a diasporic age where technology is changing the spectrum of our everyday life. Forgive me for my cynicism. Anyway, here's the link  http://www.risingstars.ph/. This new interactive platform is actually Filipino-owned, so might expect a massive list of OPM songs for your convenience . Hope you'll enjoy singing like my sister does!

Glued to the Computer All Day Long

I am supposed to make a new blog entry today but I end up sleeping the whole afternoon after babysitting my brother bembee earlier today. I am really at my wit's end babysitting him. He played angry birds and buddy rush  all day long, and I couldn't convince him play in the backyard instead like what most of the kids in the neighborhood do. If there's anyone I know who can stand his eyes fixed on the computer screen all day it has to be him. It would take a miracle to stop him gaming so  I rested my case .

Here's a cute picture of him making faces at me when I tried to chastise him about it.

I'm Officially on a Sembreak!

Shot taken during our Humanities
Culminating Activity
Finally, our sembreak has finally arrived after two weeks of battling nerve-wracking long quizzes and exams. Accounting has been hell crazy, it's a matter of life and death whether I pass or fail. I'm on my fifth year now, my final year in college,  and I tell you it's getting harder :( Dang, my grades are bad this sem, I feel bad and stupid about it. I could have done better. I regret those times when I succumbed to the temptations of procrastination. I blame myself for being so mediocre. I'm seriously drained. I promise my self to do good next sem, my last sem in college! haha. I want to be productive this sembreak. But first I need to unwind and just do the idle stuff, I guess I'll have to postpone my plans till next week. I've been rotting away in bed- either reading  or catching up on a sleep. I am finally free! Thank you professors for giving me the lowest grades :D and Congrats to AVANZA  our seniors for getting a 100% passing rate in  the CPA Board Exam!

NSO Birth Certificate

Thank God! I don't have to wait in queues anymore just to get a copy of my NSO birth certificate. Last year it took me 4 hours to get my mom's authenticated birth certificate. Imagine the hassle of lining up in hours. With NSO's Birth Certificate Delivery Service, I can now get my copy delivered straight to my door :D . I don't mind paying them for an additional amount for the freight than having to line up for five hours again. To request for an NSO Certificate you can dial 737-1111 on your mobile phone or landline. Append 02 before the hotline number if you are outside Metro Manila. This service applies to other documents such as Marriage Certificate, Death Certificate and Certificate of No Marriage ( CENOMAR ). Payments can be made through Bayad Center, Bancnet ATM and Metrobank. For more info, you can visit their website here Kudos to NSO for coming up with this online application!  May pag asa pa ang Pilipinas! :D
