I finally got an invite to try Google's Hosted Mail on our company's domain. I can create upto 25 user accounts with more than 2GB space each. I can also create aliases/nicks and mailing list on the control panel.

I was already using Gmail's SEND-AS function to send emails and my domain manager to receive emails using my domains. But recieving emails were limited only to 1MB of attachments in this setup since my email passes through my domain manager. With Google's hosted service, all emails are now handled by Google. No more space problems with my host :)

I hope Google would also launch a similar domain-hosted service with their Google Page Creator... freeeeee webspace. Free is good.

So I Came From a Fabled University?
Sunday, May 28, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317405.33



fa*bled
1. Made known or famous by fables; legendary.
2. Existing only in fables; fictitious.
3. A usually short narrative making an edifying or cautionary point and often employing as characters animals that speak and act like humans.
4. A story about legendary persons and exploits.
5. A falsehood; a lie.


[FLAME ON]

I don't usually flame someone on the internet, especially respectable people online. I normally let n00bs pass, not unless if that person is so bluntly stupid. Respect is earned right? But this time, this certain IT consultant lost my respect after BASHING MY ALMA MATTER by branding it a "fabled" university.

A few days ago, Mon referred to my post about Sigaw ng Bayan's 9 million hits on his entry at PinoyTechBlog. Someone, who goes by the alias bloggementarist / wrencelot, got offended with my entry. Ummm no, he's not the one I'm gonna flame right now.

Let me summarize the story on this paragraph. Bloggementarist got "offended" with this part: "CISCO certified individual listening to a 1st year nursing student trying to explain the basics of the internet". Obviously, the knowledge of mr-know-it-all-bloggementarist about the internet is limited that he actually thought that by just using the internet, one can easily explain the ins and outs. Since the point I'm trying to express via my example cannot be comprehended by most, I've edited it. The discussion over PinoyTechBlog has gotten worse since this bloggementarist / wrencelot guy kept on avoiding the questions being asked him and has started to put words into my mouth. He DID apoligize to me, but immediately accused me of being guilty over my entry. Andrew and Karlo started to join the discussion. Andrew with his antics and Karlo on the intellectual side. This bloggementarist / wrencelot guy even asked me to research more on his background so I'll know more about him... I did. And I'll tell you that story on another entry.

So now you know the gist of the story, now let's go back to the "fabled" thing. This IT Consultant guy posted an entry on his blog regarding our mini-discussion over PinoyTechBlog. I've seen his blog before and he's different from your normal know-it-all-guy bashing troll. Besides being an IT Consultant at a software firm, he's an Open Source aficionado and Java developer. Here's his entry:

classic example of a fragment of pinoy society's sickness
Filed under: Rants, Pinoy n Pinas - Richard at 11:52 am on Sunday, May 28, 2006

I have been monitoring PinoyTechBlog (9 million visitors can't be wrong?) lately. The comment posts are becoming quite dirty. The frackers Jegoy, Siomai Master and Karlopongit are pooling resources and intimidation power to gang up on one person, blogger bloggementarist (aka wrencelot). The latter earlier complained that about Jegoy's unsavory remarks about CCNA profesionals versus nursing freshmen. Points were made, apologies flew and some blog edits were commited. But... but... but... the bashing never stops. Just watch the circus and be amazed. I sided earlier with the three stooges' point of view. But later on, they started on a spree of character assasination and foul mouthing. I tried restraining myself in providing my own comment post not because I am afraid of any bashing, but because I don't want to stoop to such stupidity. Siomai is supposedly an instructor at the fabled university: AMA. What kind of example Siomai is trying to project to his students? Oh well, this is my blog and I'd choose to bash whoever I want...

To the PTB mods, WTF!

No link on Jegoy, Siomai and Karlopongit's blog? No lah! I won't give away precious backlinks to such unworthy people.


I normally let this kind of comment pass. That's his opinion and who am I to argue with him right? BUT.. BUT... BUT.... this pissed me off, "Siomai is supposedly an instructor at the fabled university: AMA." I thought he'll not stoop to stupidity? But now, he's branding MY alma-matter fabled? Call me paranoid, but from the way I (and a lot of my friends) look at it, he's trying to imply that my alma matter's a fake university. C'mon. Now who's foul mouthing here? FYI, I entered AMACU when it was still a College. They were already finalizing the requirements for our University status. And finally they passed. I was the one who framed the certificate. peke pala ha...

- Character assasination? I MERELY POSTED LINKS TO HIS PREVIOUS POSTS. He suggested to look for his posts right? RIGHT? (you've been following our posts so you may have read that too). So posting his (wrencelot) "Pinoy Blogging Community" trash talk is already a characted assasination?

--------------------


- Yes Siomai, errr... Siopao's an instructor but his students are old enough to understand right? My God! They're college students! They're no todlers. Don't underestimate their capability.

--------------------


- "The latter earlier complained that about Jegoy's unsavory remarks about CCNA profesionals versus nursing freshmen." <<-- Just when did I pitted CCNA professionals against nursing freshmen? Are you really following our posts? Or you're too amazed with the comments? You're an IT person, therefore you should understand that the internet is complex and cannot be explained easily by ordinary 1st year college students. With all those layers, protocols, etc., I doubt it.

--------------------


- His blog title states, "classic example of a fragment of pinoy society's sickness" <<-- Are you really an IT Consultant? Now the Pinoys contributed flaming and trolling to this world?! What a wonderful generalization Mr. IT Services Consultant. These were simply "hyped" internet discussions. Haven't you seen one Mr. Consultant? They're all over the net. Did you ever actually considered that wrencelot's posts were flamebaits?

AND PLEASE, don't drag the word "pinoy" to this incident. You're giving the others the wrong impression that if there's some internet flaming, it's because of some Pinoy Society's sickness.

BTW, since you ran away from your country just to earn more moolah, aren't you a fragment of pinoy society's sickness yourself? Instead of being a consultant with a local firm, you chose another country. Anyway, who am I to ask right?


And oh, WELCOME TO THE INTERNET! :)


--------------------


- No link on Jegoy, Siomai and Karlopongit's blog? No lah! I won't give away precious backlinks to such unworthy people. <<-- As I've said earlier, I respect people and I don't normally flame. But since you branded my school "fabled", I'll be arrogant with you. Who do you think you are threatening me with your "precious" backlinks? If you're one of the those big bloggers, I might sob in one corner, BUT YOU'RE NOT. Karlo's blog (most of them nonsense - sorry karlo :P) traffic is an edge over your technical and more serious blog. Maybe it's you who needs my "precious" backlinks eh? Umm... maybe not. NO LINKS TO SUCH UNWORTHY PERSON.

--------------------



I wouldn't have reacted with your blog entry BUT... BUTTTT... Calling my university fake? Damn. You're worse than wrencelot.

Oh well, this is my blog and I'd choose to bash whoever I want...


P.S. Take Andrew's advice :)

number edited to match the original sender

My bestbud Glen sent me this SMS the other day. Looks like SMART's goin' below the septic tank with their stupid SMSpam marketing. Now that NTC has lifted the moratorium on commercial text messages, we may see a lot of these floating around. Just look at the sender's number. It looks so ordinary that an ordinary person might even think the sender is a lost friend. Good thing I'm on Globe :)

Captain Barbell's Non-Original Costumes
Saturday, May 27, 2006

Captain's Log Stardate -317402.54



After seeing Captain Barbel's teaser website on iGMA.tv, I immediately noticed 2 familiar costumes.

Costume #1

Paolo Bediones' costume has some resemblance with A-Gel of Batang X. Remember that movie? :)

Costume #2

IS THAT A BORG? YES! IT LOOKS LIKE A BORG! I wonder if that thing also assimilates. Scary.

Oh well, let's just hope that Captain Barbel's costume doesn't have any nipples. His costume was designed by Batman Forever's costume designer... the nipples and everything!

Da Vinci Code For Adults Only

Lalaine and I watched the Da Vinci Code yesterday and both cinemas showing it were jam-packed. The movie has been rated For Adults Only so SM Cinemas did not show the movie, sticking to their principle of not showing R-18 movies. Maybe MTRCB should require moviegoers to undergo an IQ test before watching? There was this girl behind me who reacted, "Ahhh... ganon pala yun?" That's one less Catholic. Pssshh.. She actually thought that what she's watching is TRUE. Raaawr! We need Batibot back!

Sigaw ng Bayan's 9 Million
Friday, May 19, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317380.79



It's been weeks since Sigaw ng Bayan claimed to have achieved 9 million page hits with just three weeks from its launched. 9 million hits in 3 weeks... WOW! They must be in Neverland! Then there's this Inquirer columnist interpreted the hits as site visitors. OK. FIINNEEEE... Don't you just miss the times when reporters are not this ignorant?

The local blogosphere reacted violently about the claim. How can you justify a claim that a 3 week-not so popular website can achieve that feat? Maybe because their page is splattered with graphics. Each element counts as a website hit whenever it is loaded. Anyway, the guy behind the claim responded to the bloggers uproar by releasing an article on their website. But upon reading his explaination, I was like a CISCO certified individual listening to a 1st year Nursing student trying to explain the very basics of the internet a router*. His explanation doesnt make sense at all:

Released April 28, 2006

The phenomenon continues…

Call it phenomenal or call it a fake, website access logs simply cannot lie – however pundits question their results in the most tech-savvy lingo. The objectivity, fairness and accuracy of website access logs are beyond question unlike the credibility of some certified heckler effectively disguised as an opinion maker.

For the benefit of the growing number of Sigaw ng Bayan website visitors, our site is a legal, paid subscriber of a professional weblog analyzer used and employed by tens of thousands, probably millions, of website administrators the world over. Since April 8, 2006, our daily access log reports amount to an average of 80 megabytes and that alone takes a lot of space to file daily. It takes almost 20 minutes for a special software to analyze the daily logs, a considerably long period given the speed of hardwares nowadays. Visitor bandwidth usage averages 2 gigabytes daily for only around 200 pages that compose the entire website so far. Any website administrator would know that figure is half of the maximum monthly bandwidth allowance of a regular webhosting service.

The www.sigawngbayan.com uses a static sitemeter simply because it relies on the access logs automatically rolled daily by its webhost providers. It does not employ free sitemeters that abound in the electronic world like those naysayers in the country who refuse to see anything good around them. Most free sitemeters come expensive actually as their providers flood administrators’ emailboxes with spam – unwanted emails – which come from third parties the freegivers share the user’s address to. This “gateway” can be used by better-educated techies to enter into the bowels of a site, play around for sometime and leave the administrators with severe headaches. In short, we hold our site’s security very seriously and that credibility of statistics is the better judgment call for us rather than rapidity of reports, the latter serving only to satisfy the amusement of nosey know-it-alls.

We do not also use our webhost’s counters menu as they tend to display dissimilar hits reports as a site can be viewed either as www.sigawngbayan.com or simply sigawngbayan.com. Chances are, one URL or web address will be visited more than the other variant. We can only imagine how this seeming discrepancy would again be used to pummel our down-to-earth intent of promoting the People’s Initiative. We will not belabor the fact that the aesthetics of the pre-programmed counters of our webhost do not conform with our website layout using advance software.

If only we are not protecting the identities of many of our site visitors who support our crusade but meantime want to remain anonymous, we are more than willing to make public the access logs of www.sigawngbayan.com so opinion makers would not waste precious column space to question an insignificant, grassroots-operated and volunteer-funded website’s hits statistics. There they can see, before they open their malicious minds, that indeed, a phenomenon – a rare occurrence – if they like to call it, is really happening in a people’s website, courtesy of its visitors coming largely from the United States, Canada, Australia, the Middle East, China, and many other countries abroad, including a single computer terminal from Congo that is being used to access the Sigaw ng Bayan website faithfully two times a day since April 15.

Our access logs analyzer is a wonder in itself as it detects not only the IP addresses but almost the exact locations of site visitors and writers, and many other details we cannot divulge for obvious reasons. We protect these private details about our visitors – including those whose intent is only to pry for lapses and wreak havoc in the site – as much as we protect our own confidential particulars, and no amount of heckling and bullying can force us to betray them.

Perhaps this is one contributing factor to the phenomenon bad cuts from old chips cannot accept: That we value the trust of the millions of people supporting us in the great exodus towards Charter change, and they reward us in return with site revisits and passing on to their friends, families and colleagues the good news that a people’s website manned from a humid cellar using low-end computer terminals by part-time volunteers is doing an unheralded, unsung job of informing their countrymen on the beauty of a systemic change that will revolutionize the lives of 85 million Filipinos for the better.

As for the search engines yielding “negative” replies to queries on the Sigaw ng Bayan term, this is either an inaccurate statement or an outright lie. A simple search on www.webcrawler.com will show that different search engines do show up results on the particular query. The layman must also be informed that search engines nowadays display different result for searches at different times. Meaning, a site may be on the number one spot now, but is at the bottom of page 1 results an hour later, or totally gone from the top-ranked pages a day after. It is also an elementary subject to deal with the truth that search engines may take 10 to 12 weeks to index web pages, giving priority to sites manually submitted for indexing. As of this writing, sigawngbayan.com administrators have not yet submitted the site for crawling of engine spiders like that of Alexa, for legitimate reasons based on experience.

Obviously, some professed bloggers cannot accept the fact that lowly people, the poor, those who suffer away silently due to the state of affairs of this country, would like to visit a site like www.sigawngbayan.com than their web or blog sites actually meant only for the elite. They must remember that there are more grassroots people than elitists in the Philippines. Most Filipinos are fed up with the fact that these elitists have lorded it over so much for so long a time in this nation – electronically or otherwise.

Amazing though is the fact that while these highly critical netizens split their hairs for so a simple issue like the site hits made on the www.sigawngbayan.com, they generate more attention to the fledgling site by their croaking and barking. Thanks to their special concentration and mention of the site, Atty. Raul Lambino’s 9 million figures is indeed wrong – as it has gone up plus 1 million as we put the period on this issue.


-_-

1. Free site meters really are expensive? If you're afraid of email spam, then why not use a FREE email account like Yahoo or Gmail for your free site meter account? That's an advance tool in cyberspace called common sense. But if you cant afford that tool, there's this reliable tool called Google Analytics. REAL high traffic websites use this.

2. Your website is using advance software??? So using ADVANCE SOFTWARE? HTML IS ADVANCE? HELLO CAPTAIN OBVIOUS.

3. Your log analyzer detects the exact location of your visitors? Wow! How? Tell me. Please. How? My ISP's located at Makati and I live at Quezon City. If I visit your site, your "wonder" log will report my location at Quezon City? C'mon. That's preposterous.

4. Until now, Sigaw ng Bayan's pagerank is ZERO. How do you expect people to find your site in search engines? Give them leaflets? Spam their email address?



5. They must have been paying a lot since you're hosted on Yahoo! as stated by Mike. I've also done a search indeed they're hosted on Yahoo!

6. If their site is on Yahoo!, the bandwidth error Mr. Quezon got was fake.



Due to the huge volume of visitors, this site has exceeded its bandwidth limit and is temporarily shut down. To the Administrator, please contact service provider. Thank you.

I have several domains on Yahoo! so I was entitled to one of their premium support. I've asked them what's the default error a user will get when a website reaches a bandwidth limit. Here's what they sent me:



So... that... means... the error message... was.... ummm... :)


With this kind of explanation, you're twisting the facts and are trying to impose on the masses that your mvement is so popular that almost half of the population supports you.

And why do these people kept on implying that they're oppressed? Same with those ridiculous guys protesting at starbucks. Everytime someone criticizes them, they act like oppressed slaves. Who's side are we left with? Those asswipes buying expensive coffees to protest or these?

Me? I rather climb and live at the top of Mt. Everest. -_-

Protest whatever you like. But please, dont exploit people who don't know much. You're creating more dumb people for you to manipulate.

Even n00bs can pwn yuo. :)

I've stayed up late the other day just to watch Ninteno's E3 press conference live. The videos of the introduction of Nintendo Wii and upcoming games are now available on IGN. Nintendo also surprised gamers yesterday with the new Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Wii. Look who's coming to Smash Bros. Land....

Snake? SNAAAAAAAKEE!!!!



In a related story, Peter Moore, a vice president for Microsoft, asked in a recent interview, "Tell me why you would buy a $600 PS3?" He went on to explain, "People are going to buy two [machines]. They're going to buy an Xbox and they're going to buy a Wii ... for the price of one PS3."

Batibot Should Be Back On Air!
Sunday, May 07, 2006

Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -317347.71



Have you watched some local TV programs lately? Heard actors, news anchors, and commercial endorers, and even f*ckng priest and preachers speak in TAGLISH, wherein they mix English and Filipino in a sentence? Hmm... I've remembered my first lesson in College Filipino, mixing two different language in a sentence is bad. It's like destroying a language. I can't believe that the major TV networks allow these. And MTRCB and Language Commission isn't doing anything about it.

A few years ago, when I was young, taglish is almost non-exsistent. (Or maybe they exist but with no cable TV, internet, SMS, I may have not heard of it.) Thanks to programs like Batibot, most children during my childhood where educated properly.

Who could forget Kuya Bodjie, Ate Sienna, Kuya Ching, Pong Pagong, Kiko Matsing, Gingging and Ningning, Manang Bola, Kapitan Basa, etc.? Most of us grew up with them. We've watched them every 10am. Children nowadays don't even recognize Kuya Bodjie in one of McDonald's TV commercials. Batibot taught us to count and read in pure Tagalog or English. NO TAGLISH. We've learned to distinguish things, Batibot introduced us to our "kapitbahays", and many more.

Today, open your TV sets in the morning and a lot of telenovelas and talk show populate the airwaves. Sineskwela's gone to cable, where only "rich" kids could watch. Sesame street exists only on cable. Batibot is long dead. Less fortunate kids would have to settle for a daily dose Home Boy or slobbering mexicans on a mexican soap every morning. Poooor kids.

You can see them everywhere. Thousands roam the cyberspace. Mindless idiotic drones just posting comments or tag messages without even thinking. Some can be found here on my blog. People posting on my tagboard who thought that this was Toni Gonzaga's website. Others simply are astounded by simple elementary mathematics. Retz's readers had difficulty of analyzing a SIMPLE mathematical problem. Let's say you have 3 pupils, A, B, C with 12, 23, 44 as their scores respectively. To get the percentage of Pupil A, you must sum their grades up, which now total at 79. Divide Pupil A's score with the Total Score, then multiply the answer to 100. THAT'S PUPIL A's PERCENTAGE SCORE. Do the same with Pupil B and C. Which will be B = 29.11% and C = 55.70%. Now if pupil A dies (how morbid), and B and C remain, if B and C got 5 and 4 more votes respectively, we will now REDO the previous computations. Only B and C's scores will be summed. So it would be 76 total since B has gained 5 more while C got 4 more. Redo the computation and tada! You'll get the NEW percentage score. Damn stupid if you still can't get it.

Because of this, I'll be starting a campaign. I now demand that Batibot be brought back on air, not in the morning, but on primetime! All text contests should be based on Batibot's daily show. Speaking Taglish in public should be made a heinous crime.

I asked you now to wear this tshirt anywhere you go:



Everytime you wear this shirt, always do a thumbs up sign and smile like Sesame Street's Guy Smiley. And don't forget, take pictures and umm... just take pictures and post them wherever you like. If possible, do a cosplay. Wear Pong Pagong's costume and run around wild inside malls or parks while imitating Pong Pagong's cutesy giggle. Get monkey's for your pet and name them Kiko. If you caught an alien, call them "sitsiritsit alibangbang". REMEMBER, TAKE PICTURES.

In the future, I will also sell pins and magnets with the "IBALIK ANG BATIBOT.." logo.... blah blah yada yada.. hahahahaha! Dammit. I sound like one of those groups organizing a flash mob inside Starbucks. LOL!

I wonder what would you feel if you hear this line from Shaider years ago, "TIME SPACE WARP, NOW NA!"

"NOW NA" sounds stupid 20 yrs ago right? And still sounds stupid today. "NOW NA" MY ASS.

IBALIK ANG BATIBOT, NOW NA! este, NGAYON DIN!

My friend Rommel was the Student Council President of AMA Computer University from 2003-2005, the same time I held the position as president AMA microsystems, AMACU's #1 student organization --NAKS! Rommel sent me a message on Friendster informing me about a feature article on Inquirer. He's featured on Nancy Carvajal's Tale of the City.

Just a few corrections on the article, he studied at AMAQC so it should be AMA COMPUTER UNIVERSITY not AMA Computer College. He also served as student council president on 2003 not 2002. I think it was Leny who manned the position in 2002.

TALES OF THE CITY
No stopping Rommel Apostol from being the best he can be

First posted 07:36am (Mla time) May 07, 2006

Inquirer

Editor's Note: Published on page A26 of the May 7, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

HIS body may be confined to a wheelchair but his spirit and will take him anywhere he wants to.

At the age of three, Rommel Apostol was stricken ill with polio, leaving his legs weak and useless. He has not walked since.

Now 21, he said that his disability has not prevented him from living as normal a life as possible, including being in a relationship with the opposite sex.

“I have accepted my condition and it has not stopped me from trying to do things normal people do,” Apostol told the Inquirer.

With honors

The young man works at the Valenzuela City Information Technology Department where he is the chief of the programming section. Apostol is a graduate of the AMA Computer College where he graduated cum laude with a degree in Computer Science. On weekends, he plays basketball, lawn and table tennis. He also has a girlfriend, Rain, who works in Saudi Arabia.

Growing up, Apostol said that there were days when he felt depressed, not because of his condition, but because of the way some people looked down on him.

“I pity them for their ignorance because they could also be disabled by sickness like I was or by aging,” he pointed out.

Apostol added that all people have their own disability. “Mine is physical disability. Other people, on the other hand, may be handicapped by ignorance, inexperience and immaturity.”

His wheelchair, however, has not slowed him down one bit. “My disability has driven me to challenge myself to finish my studies and make worthwhile the efforts of people who love and help me,” he said.

Apostol said he was grateful to his parents who, despite their being poor, went the extra mile to bring him up as normally as possible.

“They would carry me to school so that I could attend class,” he said.

At an early age, the young Apostol already showed signs of independence and a determination to be the best that he could be despite his handicap.

As a boy, he refused to ask for help in moving around, preferring to crawl instead of being carried around.

Young achiever

He graduated at the top of his class in both elementary and high school. Along the way, he also won several spelling bee contests.

Apostol said he also dabbled in extracurricular activities in high school. “I played basketball, lawn and table tennis and was even an officer of the Citizen’s Army Training course,” he told the Inquirer.

Upon graduation, Apostol went to AMA Computer College on a scholarship grant from the Department of Science and Technology and Sherwin Gatchalian, now mayor of Valenzuela City.

In college, he was elected student council president, a post which he held from 2002 to 2004.

It was also during this time that he experienced falling in love for the first time.

“All the pain that I went through earlier in my life was erased by my relationship with Rain,” Apostol said.

He was also involved with another girl at one time and in both instances, it was the girl’s parents who had misgivings about the relationship instead of the parties involved.

“Maybe they were scared that their daughters would end up providing for me instead of the other way around,” Apostol joked.

Right now, he said that he is earning enough although he would like to make more money to help his parents.

“I feel like I am more a financially challenged than physically disabled person,” Apostol said with a smile.

Given the chance, Apostol said he would like to work in Saudi Arabia so that he could be with Rain who has migrated there.

One more goal

He also has another goal: Show “normal” people that persons with disabilities like himself can be self-reliant and should not be discriminated against. “I believe that people with disabilities should be given equal opportunities in accessibility, education, income maintenance and social security.”

And the best way Apostol thinks he can put the message across is by appearing on national TV, specifically on a reality TV program like ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother.

“I intend to audition for the next edition of Pinoy Big Brother to show that people like me can do things normal people do. I would like to show televiewers that having a disability is not a hindrance,” Apostol added.

Mel, you should have mentioned during the interview how Andrew and James carried you upto the main building's 3rd Flr.. :P Hehehehe.

Smart Destroyed the Meaning of Wi-Fi
Thursday, May 04, 2006

Captain's Log Stardate -317337.14

Smart's wireless internet service, Smart Wi-Fi (Now called Smart-Bro), destroyed the real meaning of wi-fi. I've just finished watching a program on ABS-CBN about a primer for the latest internet and 3G technologies for the common layman. Guests were from Globe Telecom and Innove Communications, operator of Globelines Broadband. A viewer sent a message, asking who's better... Broadband or WiFi. -_- He's surely referring to Globelines BROADBAND and Smart WIFI. Nice job Smart! You're creating a lot of miseducated drones. Wifi oh my....

PBB Teen Edition 's Jamilla Obispo on FHM?

Captain's Log Stardate -317335.95



I've receive these pictures from a mailing list. The sender claims that these are FHM pictures of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 's Jamilla Obispo. Jamilla is the teenage mother on the ongoing Pinoy BigBrother Teen Edition of ABS-CBN. She admitted working as a GRO to support the operation of her baby, but has yet to admit or deny if she is the one on the December 2005 issue of FHM Philippines. You decide if the pictures are indeed Jamilla. I've edited and blurred the 2 nude pictures of Jamilla Obispo and NO, I don't send the unedited pictures to anybody.

Toni Gonzaga We Belong Lyrics
Tuesday, May 02, 2006

Captain's Log Stardate -317334.12

THIS IS NOT TONI GONZAGA's WEBSITE... RRAAAAWR!! Please stop sending me fagmails... i mean fanmails. :( Ok you win. Here's the lyrics of We Belong by Toni Gonzaga:


We Belong

I’ve tried to tell you
So many times this feelings of mine
But it’s not that easy
Letting you know
How i love you so

Complete me, you complete me
I’ve never felt this way
Complete me, you complete me
Like words and melody

Don’t you know that we both belong, baby
Don’t you know that we will last forever
Don’t you know that we both belong
I knew it from the start

Hoping that someday
For that hello, just a simple hello
And maybe tomorrow
I’m the reason you’ll smile
And you make my day

Complete me, you complete me
I’ve never felt this way
Complete me, you complete me
Like words and melody

Don’t you know that we both belong, baby
Don’t you know that we will last forever
Don’t you know that we both belong
I knew it from the start
We belong

Together, youre my shelter in the pouring rain
I just hope that you will see
You and me we belong

Don’t you know that we both belong, baby
Don’t you know that we will last forever
Don’t you know that we both belong
I knew it from the start
We belong

The Pornicles 01 - Americunts Posing As Pinays on YouTube
Monday, May 01, 2006

Captain's Log Stardate -317330.34



I'll be starting a series of blog entries focusing on the thing that never fails to sell --SEX. Our story for today started when Bembem posted a comment on one of HoneyBee1's videos on YouTube. The girl is Filipina but I doubt that she's really the one posting the videos on YouTube. "She" posted videos of herself stripping on YouTube and asked viewers to add any of her videos to their favorite list in exchange for a complete and uncut video of her stripping.

Bembem posted a message on one of her videos on YouTube telling her how she ruins the reputation of Filipinas by posting her naked videos on the internet. Two "HoneyBee1 fans" retaliated at Bembem by sending her curse messages on YouTube.

A few moments later, HoneyBee1's friend Leslie, sent Bembem a "threat" message:

"i saw your videos, you are fat. you work as a call girl at WDS Global. wow! maybe 1,600 US a month. OK, you are so wonderful with an education from the computer university. LOL
btw, you must be stupid because you are a Pinay in America, you are the FOREIGNER!
Salve, you want to be rude to others, fine. But Don't expect that your videos and blog will not go unpunished Ms Fellores. You should apologize to me and my friend for being rude. No one asked you to post nasty rude comments on my videos. You did that because you are a fat lonely girl.
so, you want to be rude. Fine, I can post videos and pictures of you. i can post nasty comments about your flatmates children. I can do what I want because you are a rude low person that thinks she is something. You are not.
Don't apologize and you will see what happens."

I've went to Leslie's YouTube page and saw similar videos of her stripping and being interviewed by an americunt exploiter. Do you really expect the real Leslie to send this kind of message to Bembem? Given the fact how she had difficulty in speaking English while reasoning to the americunt that her panty is not "matched" with her bra? Ang labo diba?

The Americunt created a video with Bembem's pictures giving her names like whor*, b*itch, etc. How low can they get? HAHAHAHA! The girls' YouTube pages also contains URLs of porn sites. A porn version of the million-dollar page, a blog with videos of them stripping, and a website dedicated to cybersex cams-- in which different sites would be displayed if you view it with an IP address located in the Philippines and an IP address located on the USA. I remembered that this site has already been raided by police in Angeles City. I cannot forget those red-colored hearts... Hmm... Maybe these LeslieGirl and HoneyBee1 are here in the Philippines?

Can those menyeks reading this verify if that room is a motel somewhere here in the Philippines?
