A Christmas Rant

I do not understand men.

Just when you think you’ve finally figured them out a little, a man goes and does something totally unpredictable.

Merry Christmas to all!

From my family to yours,

a BLESSED and MEANINGFUL Christmas to you!

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

2nd Avenue is my favorite street

Was in a meeting this morning with the great people from Solar Entertainment about possible tie-ups for the coming year and I told them how much I adore 2nd Avenue.

I LOVE 2nd Avenue. Let me enumerate the reasons:

1. Jeopardy: I am a trivia junkie. I think it’s the input theme showing here. I love learning about new things and I get supreme satisfaction when I correctly say “Who is John Quincy Adams?” even faster than the contestants.

2. The Insider: I love entertainment shows, especially un-trashy ones. The Insider and Entertainment Tonight happen to be my favorites. However, I am going to say that I am quite fascinated with TMZ.

3. The Ellen Degeneres Show: She is smart, quick, funny, and entertaining. No pathetic moments here. Just good, light fun. Just the way I like it. I do still enjoy Oprah when the topic is good but with Ellen, it doesn’t matter who’s on the show, I’m sure to enjoy any episode with Ellen in it.

4. The Today Show: If I were to live in the US and I had the chance to work in television, I would want to work in The Today Show. This is my favorite morning show. Love it.

I have yet to get the chance to watch Mad Men but it seems very interesting and it’s also airing in 2nd Avenue. So are Saving Grace, Nip/Tuck, Lipstick Jungle, House, and Top Chef 3.

2nd Avenue can now be seen on Sky Channel 19, Destiny Channel 31, Dream Channel 36 and Cable link Channel 46.

Daddy is Santa??!

I was always creeped out by the Christmas song “I Saw Mama Kissing Santa Clause.” Santa is supposed to be St. Nicholas and a saint does not go around kissing someone else’s wife!

As I was searching for bloggers I can send free magazines to, I came upon this blog. I can’t believe it was Daddy kissing Mommy after all!

Please don’t tell me you guys knew all along that Santa was Daddy!

Pumped up about Women's Health Philippines

I am so excited about the magazine we’re launching next year - WOMEN’S HEALTH!

I was always a fan of the magazine SHAPE, but ever since I started reading our local Men’s Health, I’ve looked forward to the coming of our own local Women’s Health. Men’s Health is chock-full of health and fitness tips, which I love to read. So I’m sure I will love Women’s Health even more because now the tips are going to be specifically for women.

Hmm.. I wonder who they’ll get as the first WH Philippines cover girl… Any suggestions?

My Twilight Date

I took my 12-year old sister to see Twilight today.

As I watched her get all giddy upon seeing Edward Cullen on the big screen, I can’t help but feel a little fear that my baby girl is growing up so fast, too fast.

She already has her period, cannot be told what to wear, and now has to face the complications of trying to belong in school.

I remember I had problems with some girls in school when I was her age, but I don’t think it’s as bad as what she’s having to experience now — some girl calling her a b*tch, telling her that nobody likes her. Some psycho kid who pretends someone “hacked” into her YM account and that she’s not really the one YM-ing my sister all these awful things.

I know I’m not supposed to get involved but I want to wring the psycho girl’s neck.

How can they already be like this at 12?

All I can do is pray — pray that the Lord will keep my sister, that He would teach her how to be secure in Him. That and be here for her, no matter what. Go out on dates with her. Tell her that she’s beautiful. Listen to everything she has to say. Validate. Love. Pray.
