Israel bombing Gaza, Dela Paz versus Pangandaman, American Idol Season 6 and 7 marathon

Naynteeen degrees!!! That's the temperature in Manila in the past two days. That's far from the normal 25-29 degrees. Someone must have broke that thermostat, enough reason for me to text my friends; "Ang lamig, parang Baguio!"

We can continue wearing jackets until February.

Israel bombing Gaza, Dela Paz versus Pangandaman, American Idol Season 6 and 7 marathon. That pretty much sums up my weekend TV indulgence. Runny nose, back pains, and headaches barred me from stepping out. I had take out foods, cups of coffee, 2 tablets of Neozep, Solmux, Advil and 4 packs of tissue papers.

All gone before I went to sleep.

Zohan is right. The war in Israel seem to never end; justifying his escape to New York and fulfill his dreams. Call me a pessimist but I never really believed that wars will end either. It's just so sad that the young and innocent have to suffer from all these.

I pray for peace in Israel.

Last year, the opportunity that American Idol brings urged a teenage girl to skip her class, lied to her dad, and catch the auditions in New York. She made it to Hollywood but missed the final cut. Not only the drama, the crazy and the lunatics, but Simon Cowell made me an Idol fan for the past 5 years.

And of course the impeccable talent.

Who could forget Melinda? I got to see her season 6 audition again. She's just amazing. Simon, in one of his recent interviews hailed her as the best singer who ever joined American Idol so far. Too bad, she didn't win; Jordin was not as good.

I hope to finally see another contestant of Melinda's caliber this year. And I can't wait to hear Simon's harsh-reality-remarks too.

The Dela Paz family finally filed cases against the now infamous mayor from the south. Dela Paz got Atty. Raymond Fortun on their side. I join the entire nation in praying for them. The Pangandamans must go to jail. They should! They need to!

Israel will never be defeated, that's according to a scripture i read when I was little.

the wars will not stop unless central banking exists... wars are waged because it's a good means to generate money... the vietnam war for example...
