Desperate Moment: Sexy Justin

Here is my way of saying how I will definitely miss Desperate Housewives. Aside from the housewives, their featured men touched my life, too. LOL. Second on my list is Justin, the first boyfriend of Andrew Van de Camp, played by Ryan Carnes. Ryan Gregg Carnes (born December 6, 1982 in Pittsfield, Illinois) is an American actor. He attended Duke University where he was a member of DUMB, the Duke University Marching Band. Carnes first started acting in 2004 when he became the ninth actor to portray Lucas Jones on the ABC soap opera General Hospital from July 2004 until September 2005. After he left General Hospital, he was replaced by Ben Hogestyn. From 2004–06, he had a recurring role on Desperate Housewives as Justin, the love interest of Andrew Van de Kamp, played by Shawn Pyfrom.

Sexiest Cast 2011: My Neighbor's Wife

I miss movies with cast like that of My Neighbor's Wife. Though I got bored when I tried to watch this movie, the sight, however, of sexy celebrities in one movie are candies to my eyes. I actually might watch the movie right now that I practically have nothing do. I heard Lovi Poe has a few movies in line for her. Hmm, I hope one of those movies will be of this kind. What about this Carla Abellana girl? I think she's more beautiful than Lovie Poe in this movie.

I love the Chinese people, after all. (The title comes from the 2006 film Open Season.)

Life Thru Insta: Under My Umbrella

Earlier this year, I’ve travelled to Boracay in time for the Valentine’s Day. For someone who gets tired of the usual sights and sounds of Manila once in a while, Boracay makes an excellent breather. It was too bad I have to travel with people who have been there for the first time. I really never wanted to be an accidental guide, but had fun, nonetheless. While walking through the busy alleyway on the beachside, I found these inverted umbrellas. I know it’s nothing new, but I found them picture-worthy, anyway. (The title comes from the lyrics of the 2007 Rihanna song Umbrella.)

Last week was all about Revenge

I can't believe I would be able to finish the entire first season of Revenge this fast. I'm sure it will have another season, and since Desperate Housewives is over, I will officially add Revenge to my Must-Watch list. Last week was a little awful for me, I haven't slept for 8 straight hours not even once, and I'm afraid I'm off to a bad start this week. My addiction to blogging is no longer healthy, and all this is for nothing. I might minimize my posts in the days to come so I could focus on other healthier diversions like reading books. If anything, I'd like to thank everyone for your continuous patronage.

Life Thru Insta: This Is It, Pancit!

Here’s a new series of posts that will appear in this blog once a day for the rest of the month: The Insta-Life Series. Yes, bits and pieces of this blogger’s daily life through the eyes of Instagram. For today, let me share what keeps me full during merienda time—pancit canton with eggs! I’m not sure how I’ve developed a taste for pancit canton, but maybe because it’s the most available grocery item I could find from our neighbor’s little store. In case you’re wondering what particular flavor I like, it’s the kalamansi (calamondin) flavor. There you have it, my first post in the Insta-Life series. (The title comes from the Filipino expression This is it, pancit!)

On Manhunt Philippines 2012

First of all, this poster is confusing. It could tell us that the event will be Manhunt International and it will be held in Subic, Philippines. Logically, that’s what it says, but since that’s very unlikely to happen, we can only assume that the event is the local franchise, which is Manhunt Philippines 2012, and it will be held in Subic. I wonder if the organizers have given that poster a thought. The winner of Manhunt International Nueva Ecija 2012 will probably represent his province in the contest, otherwise, what’s the point of the pageant held earlier in Cabanatuan. Also, if that’s how they selected the representative for the province, I wonder if other Manhunt pageants were held elsewhere in the country. Hmm, too many loopholes there! Anyway, I’ve gone through some pictures of this year’s finalists and, so far, I can say that most of them don’t really have what it takes to even be in the finale. It’s also confirmed that the winner of Manhunt International Nueva Ecija 2012, Paul David Mariano, is one of the finalists, as well as his second runner-up Edwin Navarro, giving them an equal advantage to win the not-so-coveted title. I bet Manhunt International Nueva Ecija 2012 was just a rehearsal for them and not really a prerequisite for the national pageant.
