The world's most popular board games introduces "innovative" way to make the game more exciting. Mattel, the producer of the game, said that this innovation will make the game more exciting and will allow infusion of pop culture. Although the rule is not yet definite as of the moment, it drew various reactions from scrabble fanatics. But with this change, one can easily snatch big score with words like "Beyonce", "Rihanna", or "Boracay".

Scrabble was invented in 1938 by American Alfred Buttsand later sold and trademarked by Mattel in 1948.

Virtual Visita Iglesia

Visita Iglesia is a religious practice among Filipino Catholic faithful. It loosely means church-hopping or visiting as many churches as one could, or at least comply with the minimum of seven churches. It is usually being practice every Maundy Thursday and became an act of penance during the Holy Week. The Philippines, having the largest Catholic populace in Asia, is a home to many majestic, historical, and breathtaking churches. So the tradition of Visita Iglesia lives long in the country.

If you want to experience this great tradition, you can try it online by visiting the "virtual" Visita Iglesia established by our local clergy, But then again, it's more serene if you try it offline.

Earthquake Today

There's a long earthquake happens just today at this hour in the Philippines. It quite long, around 20-30 seconds and good thing we're safe here. I do not know exactly if there's casualty out there, hopefully none. Let's pray for the best!

Anne Curtis Nip Slip

Whenever there's smoke, there's fire. But we never expected it to be hotter than this.

The rumor which started and circulated via web was finally validated. Yes, Anne Curtis had an accidental nip slip via last Sunday's dance number in ASAP XV, a local variety TV show. Reports said Anne's "treasure" has been exposed for around 10 seconds while performing a dance number via cheering crowd. It was Anne's real and reel partner Sam Milby who got up into the stage to save the clueless Ann. But the heroic act is not enough, because in this days of camera phone, a mere second makes great opportunity for the incident to capture picture perfect moments.

Just be careful next time Anne. Meanwhile, enjoy the sumptuous photo.

Good Times with Mo, Mojo and Grace Lee

I've been following lately via web Magic 89.9 morning show's The Good Times. I am not really a radio fanatic and I didn't have the chance listening to show's radio broadcast every morning after realizing I could save almost eight thousand bucks per month for not bringing car in the office. I've been a commuter for almost two months now and good thing I bumped into The Good Times site. I just realized I missed a lot. I found out how addictive the trio of Mo Twister, Mojo, and Grace Lee was. It's like fine wine served with steak and chocolates. I mean, they've got all the right blend everyone, guys, girls, gays will love.

Try it and get hooked too. You were warned. The daily podcast and wrap-up of the show is available here: http://www.goodtimeswithmo.co.cc/

Manny Pacquaio is a King

There's no question Manny Pacquaio is a king. But the man does not excite me anymore.

Perhaps because MP is so strong that sometimes his fight became monotonous. He always wins so there's no suspense factor there. His opponent will just change, but it's the same fight as before and Pacquaio will always be the winner. The bet will no longer be on who's gonna win (because it would always be MP), but on what round or on what decision. Can you see my point? It's because MP is unbeatable, the sports becomes dull and less exciting.

Manny Pacquaio is king. He's getting stronger and stronger. But His fight will be just like an old movie being replayed for the nth time unless a real opponent as mighty as him comes. And by that, I don't really mean Mayweather!

Flash Forward into the Future

I'm getting addicted to the American TV series Flash Forward. It's in the sci-fi/drama/suspense genre and every episode is a real treat. The plot is simple yet rich, it does not take someone to be scientific geek to understand eveything. it's like my other favorite TV series Lost minus the confusion and chaos. I've happened to watch the first five episodes and can't wait to watch more. I think the real formula of this show is in giving the audience the whole picture of what's the plot is all about, and every characters and scenes became the pieces of the jigzaw puzzle to be solved.

In real word, I wonder how is it if we could peek into our future lives. If it's a bad future, should we take the courage to fight it off?
