My Thanks to my very good friend RJ Marasigan for always keeping me company. I enjoyed her presence and will most probably enjoy a lot more in future gimmicks. Needless to say her constant pinching of my nipples made me sore.
We ended the fun at Star City at 12:30 am and I brought home all 10 of my guests. I got home at 3:30 am and was very exhausted that I postponed our family lunch to dinner. In a way spending time with people very dear to you is the best way to spend your birthday. I am looking forward for a celebration next year.

At the same time the big production numbers that mimic the Moulin Rouge and Dream Girls settings were very impressive as well. A young kid who suddenly acquires the inkling to become a gay beauty queen is now realized in this pageant. For me the big prize in this pageant is the opportunity to further hone one's skills and perform at your best to be able to become a world class performer. The Grand winners were Angelica Santillan who was crowned Ms Amazing Philiippines and Rosa Garcia who is the first runner up. Their dreams have all come true, winning a presitgious gay pageant and being a part of the Amazing Philippines performers.
If you want to catch the show, its from Tuesdays to Saturdays with two shows 7:30 pm and 9:00 pm at the Manile Film Center. As of now I believe the tickets are P 500 for locals. Do watch the 40 minute show and I promise you that you will be truly amazed with the show.

The only thing I remember about the
Three years ago I got a proposal form the Center for Philippine Arts & Cultural Entertainment Association Inc. which is the producer of Amazing Philippine Theatre’s the Amazing Show, the first and the biggest theatrical variety show in the Philippines today which caters to an array of audiences, young and old, as a wholesome family entertainment. Established in August 15, 2001, the Amazing Show features Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Indian production numbers, Broadway and Off Broadway musicales, comedy acts, modern and Filipino folk and traditional dances and other exciting numbers that would thrill the spectators no end.
I will just come out with pictures and everything I can share for all to see the beauty of these people who braved hell and high water just to be a part of the Search for Ms. Amazing Beauty 2008.
Slimmers World has over 380,000 Clients and a rapidly increasing number of people whose interest in fitness and health are waiting to be tapped. SWI North Edsa, the Home of champions as they want to be known garnered the top prize in the event. Contrary to what a lot of the readers of this blog are thinking, I am not a customer of Slimmers World, we just sponsored the tabulation. Congratulations to the winners.

Whenever I write my sports blogs I believe that at the back of my mind is my good friend Ricky Olivares trying to write a masterpiece, I try to mimic the way he writes and his style.

My bet goes for UST and Arellano for Zone 1, UE and Lyceum for Zone 2, while Letran and USJ Recoletos will most likely make it in Zone three while FEU and University of San Carlos are my bets for Zone 4. Teams that may make a few surprises are Mapua, University of Cebu and Xavier University.
