Lorna Tolentino, Jinggoy Estrada win FAMAS awards

The 56th Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences or FAMAS awards was held Saturday night at the Centennial Hall of the Manila Hotel.

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, outstanding in his outing as an Overseas Filipino Worker who finally went home to his disoriented kids, won as Best Actor for “Katas ng Saudi” while Lorna Tolentino, widow of the late president of the Katipunan ng mga Artista ng Pelikulang Pilipino Rudy Fernandez, bagged the Best Actress trophy for her performance as an understanding wife of an OFW in “Katas ng Saudi.”

Extolling the values of a father who sweats hard overseas to send his children to school and buy them luxuries in life to keep up with society’s social-climbing, Famas recognized Maverick Films’ “Katas ng Saudi” as the excellent picture shown in 2007.

Although its director Jose Javier Reyes failed to clinch the best director plum which instead went to “A Love Story” helmer Maryo J. de los Reyes, the overall sentiment was written all over the primary awards.

The Best Supporting Actor was an eclectic choice, Mon Confiado in director Eddie Romero’s digital film “Faces of Love.”

Irma Adlawan brought home the Best Supporting award for her arresting portrayal of a mother blinded by cash from her wayward son who met a tragic fate in Artiste Entertainment’s “Ataul for Rent.”

The foster child in Brillante Mendoza’s foray into adoption, Kier Segundo, won as Best Child Actor for Seiko Films’ “Foster Child” while Ella Cruz, one of Becky Aguila’s stable of young stars, was named Best Child Actress for Imus Productions’ “Resiklo.”

Best Story went to Neal “Buboy” Tan and Anthony Guidang for Artiste’s Entertainment “Ataul for Rent” while Tan, who won his first award since started writing screenplays and directing, took home the Best Screenplay for the same movie.

Best Cinematography went to Ramoncito Redoble for “Batanes” and Best Editing was won by Tara Illenberger for “A Love Story”. Best Music Score went to Jesse Lucas for “A Love Story” and “Sine-Sine,” the overall music of “Confessional” bagged the Best Theme Song.

Best Art Direction went to Rodell Cruz for his work in “Resiklo” while the Best Production Design was also given to him for the same film.

Best Sound went to Albert Idioma for “A Love Story” while the Best Visual Effects and Best Special Effects were won by Ignite Media/Riot, Inc. for “Resiklo.”

Famas also has its own Special Awards to boot such as the Presidential Award given to Boots Anson Roa; Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed on Paraluman; FPJ Memorial Award given to Cesar Montano; Flavio Macaso Award, the main organizer of Famas, awarded to Wilberto Villamin; Dr. Jose R. Perez Memorial Award handed to Chit Ramos; Golden Artist Award given to Ogie Alcasid; German Moreno Achievement Award (for Female) awarded to Marian Rivera and (Male) to Ryan Agoncillo.

Another Day for me

It’s Wednesday!

I will go to downtown to try to check my money in my atm. Well, I hope it is already there. I need it so badly because I want to buy our clothes for our Church Aninversary though it is not enough. It’s nearly end of the month so I need to pay our light, water and internet connection bill. Whew! It’s okay because God is Jehovah Jireh means “God will provide”. I must not worry, right?

I want to ZzzZ again!

..hmmm..I want to go back to sleep this morning because it is raining outside. It’s cold inside our room..ang sarap matulog. But my eyes will not cooperate on what I want so I better get up and cook our breakfast. After a few minutes my daughter opens the door in our room and greeted a good morning with a kiss. Mwah! Mwah! It deleted my entire bored ness this morning. I thank God for that because Kyla makes my day happy with energy to blog and do the household chores. That’s the duty of a mom, wife and a helper. Whew! I do everything in here that is why I am losing weight..still so happy! LOL! It is because I don’t need to skip meals to lose weight. LOL! :)

Tips for Weathering the Storm

Despite the cloudy forecast, career experts say you can create your own silver lining, one that protects your income and your career.

1. Invest in your education. Pursuing a bachelor's or master's degree, or perhaps week-long classes or certifications, will boost your skills and make you a more precious commodity in the workplace, says Jennifer Loftus, national director of Astron Solutions, a compensation consulting firm in New York. According to a report by the U.S. Department of Education, in 2006 young adults with a bachelor's degree earned 28 percent more than those with an associate's degree, 50 percent more than those who finished high school, and 98 percent more than those who didn't earn a high-school diploma.

2. Shift to an industry that needs workers. Health care is one such industry, notes Loftus. Nursing, one of the fastest-growing careers, is expected to see a shortage of more than 1 million workers by 2020, according to the Health Resources and Services Administration. The median salary for a registered nurse with one to four years of experience is $48,895, PayScale data shows.

3. Document your accomplishments. Whenever you finish an assignment, note how your work helped the company make money, save money, save time, grow the business, or retain customers, and illustrate your accomplishments with dollars, percentages, and other metrics, says Barbara Safani, president of New York-based Career Solvers. "By showing and quantifying your specific value add, you build a better business case to support the requested salary increase," Safani says.

4. Tackle tasks no one else wants. This isn't about grunt work, Safani says; it could mean mastering a new technology others aren't comfortable with, or accepting an assignment outside the traditional scope of your job. "Employees who demonstrate this level of flexibility tend to get more flexibility from their bosses on other issues, including compensation," she explains.

5. Accept high-profile assignments close to review time. This sort of project will likely be a focal point of your performance review, and because it's recent, your boss can quickly recall and document achievements relevant to the project, Safani says.

Just Reminiscing

I remember during my high school days that I am dull. I am hard headed because I have fun being with my classmates and friends. I go home late at 7 or 8 in the evening. We just stayed in our school building and chit chat with each other but never think of “FLAMES, FLAMES” thing. At that time I don’t want to have a bf because I am in the honor roll so I want to maintain it for my mom. I thank God because I made it and I am a SALUTATORIAN in our batch. Mom is so proud of me though she were not with me during our Graduation Day because she is in Lebanon working as a DH. It’s okay as long as I make her happy and proud of me. I miss my high school days!

What Color Day Are You Having? sleepy this morning. I don’t want to wake up. I want to sleep the whole day but I have household chores to finish right away. I hope Mr. Sunshine will appear today because it is always hiding due to there is a typhoon. bored so I do this.

You Are Having an Orange Day

Right now, how your day is going can change on a dime. It's been both frustrating and fun so far.

You're used to making the best of days, and today is no different.

You are seeking out comfort and security wherever you can find it today.

Your little “pick me up” could be anything... a phone call to a friend or your favorite dessert.

..excited for tomorrow!

Tomorrow is SUNDAY!!!

I am happy every Sunday because I hear God’s word. I am happy because I can have fellowship with my fellow believers. I am happy because I saw my friends in our church.

When I am absent, I feel empty and I will regret of why I am absent. I’ll take a bath early tomorrow so that we will not be late. I hope and pray that my daughter and hubby will wake up early too because if not I’ll murmur early in the morning. I don’t want to ruin my day tomorrow because of them. Honestly, it usually happens every Sunday. Satan is always there to make hindrance of not going to the church. But I won’t let him won from destroying our day.

Good night to all! Have a nice Saturday! :)

My Fav Actress

Katie Holmes was my favorite cast of “Dawson’s Creek” during my College days. I always watch it at Studio 23. Katie is one of my favorite actresses until now. I was amazed when I knew that she got married with Tom Cruise. But I’m happy for her because Tom Cruise is also my favorite actor in the Hollywood. Now, they have a beautiful daughter named “Suri”. I hope that they will stay together eternally.

Take a look at this picture.

Our Special Day Today

Every 13th of the month is our special day. That lucky day was the time when we confess to each other that we are in love with each other. Its sounds “clich├ęd or corny” but it’s true. They said that number 13 is a bad number but for us it is a lucky number. In fact it’s Friday the 13th huh..I’m not joking. I ask my bf and now my hubby to move our special day to 14 but he disagrees because he does not believe on the hearsay. It’s all folks he said. Well, at first I am afraid but now I believe that God set that day for us.

Btw, this coming December 22 is our 5 years Wedding Anniversary. We both want to go out dinner or go to a resort and have an overnight stay there. But we are still planning for that special date. I always thank God for my family because they are my great treasures in this world.

I just want to greet my hubby.

It's so HOT in here!

Mr. Sunshine is always present here in Davao. Wet clothes absolutely get dry because of the heat of the sun. But I can’t take it because I still feel hot after having a cold shower. Then on the evening I take a half bath because I can’t sleep. After that I keep on sneezing. Grrr! I hate sneezing because my eyes are itchy. I have allergies. I don’t know why I am like this. I get easily sick even if I take Vitamin C everyday. Grrr!!!

Poor Kitkat

Have you watch TV patrol this evening? If not..poor Kitkat went to the police to report that her live-in partner get her 1 million pesos and other things. They live together for 6 years and she never thought that her live-in partner will do these bad things to her. She gives an authorization to that person to withdraw her money in the bank because she trust him fully. Kitkat did not expect these things will happen to her. Kitkat works hard for that big money. It’s a lesson for her that she must not trust all her money to a certain person even if you love him. Money is the root of all evil, right?

Kyla is sick. Again...

Kyla is sick right now, we are so worried about her. Whenever she has a fever, kyla is very prone to convulsion. I have read some articles regarding that matter, it is not good for children to have convulsion always. It might damage their brain cells. That is why when kyla has a fever, we don't let a minute past without attending at her. Please help us pray for my daughter Kyla. I need your prayers right now. Thank you guys.

I'll Study..

I’m sad because I have not study our lesson in our Sunday school. I forgot to study yesterday. I’m so thankful that Maam Nanette postponed our quiz next Sunday. Please remind me Oh Lord so that I will not worry and that I can answer all the questions. Honestly, the coverage of our quiz is long but I know God will help me to store it in my mind. I’m the married woman in our Sunday school class but I’m still young and so I still belong to that class. My classmates are young professionals then I’m also with them. LOL!

Poor Week for me

I’m dismayed this week because I grab few opps at PPP. But I’m so thankful to Blogsvertise because they gave me many assignments with high offer. I’m so thankful also to PayU2blog because they gave me extra assignment. I was surprised but I’m so happy because I need money for this coming December. I know the month of December is an exciting month because people are going to the mall to shop or buy their Christmas gifts to their loved ones. I hope I can grab more opps this coming week because I need to save bucks for many events. One of the events is that we are celebrating our 5 years Wedding Anniversary this coming December 22. We will also be celebrating our Church Anniversary this 2nd week of December. Gosh! There are so many foods to eat. LOL!

Another Sex Scandal

Have you seen the sex video scandal of Criselda Volks?

I saw it and it’s so disgusting. Cris Villanueva her live-in partner left her because she is drug addict and it’s true! Why she did this? She has her son.

Criselda Volks is still undecided to go back to America after she admitted that she’s the woman on the sex video dubbed as the “Hyatt Scandal” that recently circulated on the Internet and cellular phone videos.


I’m out of my desk today. Hubby will be the one to take care of my daughter because I and my mom will go to Guihing. It is the hometown of my friend and neighbor Darms. Her grandpa died last week and his burial will be tomorrow afternoon. It’s quite so far from the city of Digos. You can see lots of banana plantation there owned by Lapanday. There are also corn and sugarcane there. The place is like the hometown of my mother in Darong, Sta. Cruz. Their neighbor was almost Muslims likewise to the hometown of my mom. We ate our lunch there and I am so full because they make “kinilaw na diwit” and fried beef. It’s so delicious! It’s our first time to taste “kinilaw na diwit”. I love it!

Always Tired! tired today because I laundry our clothes in the afternoon. I wake up at 7 in the morning in which I usually wake up at 5 in the morning. I’m so tired yesterday because I attend our evening service in our church then we went to Cosmo for funeral service of our beloved Maam Velasco. She is our choir director. We will surely miss her but we are happy because she is with the Lord in heaven. We will meet there soon.

Tomorrow I will wash our white clothes because I soak it with Ariel and Zonrox to maintain its whiteness. Whew! It’s not easy to be a wife and a mother at the same time. I have no choice but to do it. Maybe next year I have to get a house maid because Kyla will be schooling. I need someone to help me in doing household chores. I know I can’t do it alone.

I’m happy today because I hear God’s word in our evening service. My soul is not hungry with the word of God.

By the way, this is my new BIBLE from my friend Mailyn.

I am so happy when she gave it to me last Sunday evening. Our Bible was lost and I cannot find it in our church. I don’t know where hubby left it. It’s so hard to find a KJV 1611 Bible in some Christian bookstore because their Bible was revised and it’s not the original. We only use KJV 1611 Bible.

What is Halloween?

Halloween is a holiday which is usually celebrated on October 31. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, and bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century. Halloween is celebrated in several countries of the Western world, most commonly in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Puerto Rico, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, and at times in parts of New Zealand. In Sweden, the All Saints' official holiday takes place on the first Saturday of November.
