Things I Learned Growing Up in the States

Whenever Christmas is right in the corner I never fail to remember the way we sang Jingle Bells when I was just a kid. It went like this:

Jingle Bells
Batman Smells
Robin Laid an Egg
The Batmobile Lost its Wheel
And the Joker got away, hey!

Repeat 20x


We also sang the Popeye song a little differently.

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man
I live in a garbage can
I stood near the heater and fried off my weiner
I'm Popeye the Sailor man!


One more, this time the Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the flag
Michael Jackson is a -toot-
Pepsi Cola burned his butt
Now he's drinkin' 7-UP

I'm bored, you can say that. :P

I Dream of Donsol

Whale Shark in Donsol, Sorsogon

One of my ultimate travel destinations is Donsol, Sorsogon. Why? Because of the amazing 'butandings' or whale sharks as they are better known. I plan on going next year, possibly in March which I heard was the best month to go. Who's coming with me?!

A Twilight Halloween

First, a disclaimer. I'm not a big rabid Twilight fan, but I thought it'd be fun to throw a Halloween party and have us all dress up as emo vampires. Chattee and Brendel made us up with pale Halloween makeup bought from the mall.

Twilight Halloween
This shot took quite a bit of effort coz we were trying to imitate this photo:

Twilight Halloween

Not what we wanted but I still think it turned out very cool.

A nice shot of the girls set against the moonlit sky.

And now, the guys.

Twilight Halloween

This was a sample shot, but I really like this one coz of its randomness.

Prior to the photoshoot Ria served us a hefty dinner of Roast Chicken. Lyle and Brendel brought two big pizzas while Migs had two bottles of sparkling White Grape juice in tow. Chattee, fresh from Cebu, gave out Chicharon and dried mangoes as pasalubong.

Twilight Halloween

After the photoshoot we played a game of Big Taboo. It's similar to Pictionary but has four types of clues: the typical Taboo where you try to describe one word while trying to avoid uttering specified words on a list; "15" where you describe as many words possible but you're only allowed 15 words in total; "Bendy Bob" where you act out words by controlling a purple stuffed toy; "Drawing" which is basically drawing out clues like in Pictionary; And lastly, a free-for-all round where previously solved answers are described with one word. Whoever answers first gets to move on the board. My teammates were Ria, Gwing, Luan and Brendel. The other team was composed of Jim, Anne, Lyle and Chattee. My team won but it was pretty close. Overall it was nice enjoyable evening.. something that I don't get to do in Halloween. I think this is the first serious Halloween party I've been to where everyone's dressed up on purpose.

The girls tried to get us guys to take off our shirts. I was going to do it if Jim and Lyle were willing. But they weren't, thank god. hahaha

Next year's theme: New Moon. LOL
