Pyrolympics Glimpse

Me and B went to Mall of Asia last Saturday to catch the Pyrolympics. I really wanted to go as I missed it last year. It was a blessing that B was given two tickets worth Php 150 by his boss. The entrance of MOA Esplanade was closed as viewers are required to pay but I think everyone call still see the show even by afar.

Anyway, I as not able to appreciate Canada’s display that much because of heavy rain that day. We thought the show time would be delayed because of the downpour but it still pushed through at the scheduled time. It must have been really scheduled and programmed. The large crowd and the rain made it quite uncomfortable but thank god the rain finally stopped before the next fireworks display at 9.

And all I can say was it was spectacular. I loved seeing the sky light up with bright colors and I guess everyone there enjoyed it. At the end, I can say that the trip was worth the slight hassle. Here are some of the pics from France’s fireworks display.

I was also able to record a video…but for some reason can't upload it..will try again next time :-)

Goodbye Summer of 2008

It happens every year. I cringe when the summer season start because I dread the long hot, sticky days. I guess I am one of those people who seem to be afraid of the sun…well who wouldn’t be with the threat of global warming, wrinkles and skin cancer. The moment I realized that the long nights, short days, and temperate weather of the Christmas season is about to be over, I sighed and said…time to stock up on my summer defense...sunscreen, umbrella, shades, and a vow to avoid the sun as much as possible.

But still, summer wouldn’t pass without me spending almost an entire day outdoors. The summer season is not that short enough to accommodate all that out of town trips, swimming gimiks, and the like. At the end of the day, I enjoyed being exposed to the sun so much to realize that after all, a little sun wouldn’t hurt so bad.

Anyway, it’s ironic because as much as I dread the start of summer, I find myself so sad when the first rain of May comes. Somehow, it represents the passing of the season.

Anyway, summer is still not technically over so I guess I will just make the most of it…

Where Bloggers Make Money

I am really amazed at how the internet can make earning money seems so simple…sometimes I perceived them to be too good to be true. But not this time. I am so glad to discover this site which pays their commentators. The earnings are unlike other paid to post sites which will pay you I guess about 1 dollar for 100 posts. At, I easily earned over 1 dollar after making 12 short comments. Isn’t that great? And an added bonus is that the blog is also very informative. Check it out guys
