Hatsukoi Limited

After nearly four months, the anime series Hatsukoi Limited has come to a close. The animation style closely resembles the cult classic I's.

Hatsukoi Limited is about a romantic high school life anime of eight girls in middle school and high school. What I loved about the series is that it manages to show how both sexes think about love and affection.

This anime is classified as Shōnen hence you can expect a lot of fan service for guys. If you have loved the animated series BOYS BE. This is a series that will make you smile after each episode and feel as if you have been kissed for the first time. This is my hobby in my off time: watching anime!

wakapman: pacquiao superhero

Philippines - when Transformers: revenge of the fallen was shown in theaters it carried a viral trailer for the movie. Wapakman!

The good 30sec. trailer that give absolutely nothing about the movie save for some people being beaten to a pulp. It is reported to have the following cast: Pussy Cat Doll Nichole Scherzingger as the love interest and Dave 'The animal' Batista as arch nemesis.

Feedback was generally positive for trailer of the first international movie to be produced by Manny Pacquaio. As with most boxers who entered showbiz, they become comedians. I am sharing this humorous photoshoped picture of the Pambansang Kamao.

How I wished I had such photoshop skills. I, for one, can't wait to watch this film. If you will watch only one tagalog movie this year?

Transformers exhibit

Today I went to SM to watch the GMA Kapamilya day but due to the queue I decided to forgo the original plan and went to see the transformers exhibit for a second time around. Often, I would ask myself what made these toys so attractive to my eyes 25years ago? The toys were obviously old yet kept in pristine condition. The old toys were very much block looking the way th

So clockwise:

Lynx, if I am not mistaken
Various incarnations of the autobot Optimus prime on a shelf.
Custom Protectobot, by Ryan Uybengkee, combined to form by Defensor.

I find it sad they did not have the constructicons generation1 and movie counter-part present nor is their dinobot complete for display except for the fan favorite Grimlock. For a free exhibit, I can not demand too much from them.

Makes me wonder: Are these toy owners the only toy collectors in Cebu? I am sure there is more than meets the eye on the matter. If only SM and toy kingdom, whom presumably sponsored the event, reached out to the many. I hope there will be more toy exhibits like this event.

The world mourns the death of a great singer/actor/artist. Michael Jackson.

Despite the child abuse cases, baby displaying sagas of this ubiquitous artist of the 90's.

I found out the news whilst browsing the net on my choppy SE K800i. At first I thought it was RIP: Michael Jordan but after reading it properly it was Jackson, pala!

I read on the ABC News that Madona cried so much hearing the death of the King of pop; for some odd reason I pictured Madonna crying so hard and saying 'OMG, I might be next!'. I reckon I might have been reading too much Pugad Baboy 21 (please buy it and help the fledgling pinoy comic industry.


I now have a blog follower and surprise! It's not my girlfriend or my mom. I would like to give my heartful thank you.

2009 First day High

Teaching has always been draining for me. It's an emotional roller coaster so when I was offered asian civilization in U.V. Banilad for nursing students, I grabbed the chance as it would mean getting a breathe of fresh environment. Nursing students are easier to teach as their comprehension is better than some.

This semester the Institutional Monitoring and Evaluation for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (IQuAME), under the CHED, will be visiting the Main Campus of the U.V. They would even drop by at the least expected time, we faculty members must be prepared (cue in the song 'be prepared' from the movie Lion King! I loved that film.)

I have to make changes to my method of class record making. The Dean wanted me to make it in such a way that even non teachers would understand how the grade was computed. Am I the only teacher in the CAS department that uses MS-Excel in computing grades?

I don't know but maybe going old school is cool sometimes, don't you think?

I just hope to be the best at what I do even if at times people would hate me for it.

On a related note, it was ego massaging to know that some students would always ask me if I would handle their subject; some would even go as far as adding my teaching load to their courses. I have not seen any of them this week though, it might be safe to say that I was Punked!

I hope to improve my batting average of giving grades as some say 'tihik daw ko sa grades' which is not true but then again I will do my best.

If you have been following my blog, aside from my dutiful girlfriend, you would have noticed that the themes of pictures for the blog are totally unrelated to the contents of the post. I intentionally made it like that to make it more fun and amusing.

So know you understand the mystery of the *******

Not in U.V.

How I wished I was the teacher who checked this answer sheet.

Below is the reply of the instructor who checked this testpaper.

Dear Michael,

Every year I attempt to boost my students' final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True or False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It's as if you didn't look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

May God have mercy on your soul.

Professor William Turner

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on.
B is the new C

Halcyon days of the summer


I always loved that bleach episode that uses the word HALCYON. It means an idle, tranquil day. My absence from the net is cause by my move to switch DSL providers, having been with GLOBE for over five years and understanding how bad their service made me switch to the other provider. If you are wondering who that pretty black err morena girl is, she is the College of Arts and Science Ms. Rose of Summer. She gamely decided to post for this blog.

As for the other pictures, those are of my students in Philosophy having a hearty debate whilst some of them having it up for the cam. Sir Pat Acobodillo does an introduction to the summer days of U.V.

Until here folks, keep the faith!
