Dear Angelicum,

I am writing because we've been contacted by a journalist from the Manila Bulletin, who is interested in interviewing you at ThinkQuest Live in San Francisco.

The journalist's schedule is pretty limited and we also don't want to conflict with any ThinkQuest Live workshops, so the available times for interviews would be:

* Tuesday, anytime between 1:00 noon and 3:00 pm (this overlaps with free time)
* Wednesday, before 8:00 am (this overlaps with breakfast)

The interview would be a maximum of 30 minutes.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in being interviewed and your preferred time(s). (Apologies for the late notice, but we were just contacted today.) Thank you!

Best regards,
Jomay Liu

Nataliya Gotsii's Ribby

Posted by: Angelicum
I've seen MANY snippets of her eating chocolates and everything, why is she like this? This is not even hot anymore, this is super creepy.

Ukrainian model NATALIYA GOTSII of the Ford Modeling Agency -- who is 5' 11" and a size 2 -- sauntered down the catwalk on October 7, but it was her rail-thin frame and her exposed ribs that upstaged the designer clothes she was wearing.

But GEORGES BULLY, Communications Manager for Guy Laroche, tells ET that Nataliya, 22, is far from having an eating disorder.

"I had breakfast with [the models] before the show and I assure you, Nataliya is not anorexic," he said.

Backstage at the show, Nataliya is spotted snacking on yogurt -- how much of it she eats, we don't know.

The fashion industry has made news lately with Spain's ban on overly thin models during Madrid's Fashion Week. The event turned away underweight models after protests that women were attempting to duplicate their undernourished looks, thus driving them to eating disorders.

"Fashion is a mirror and many teenagers imitate what they see on the catwalk," regional official CONCHA GUERRA said.

NOW, this is what I'm talkin'bout....

If runways suddenly hires these plus sized peeps, will teenagers imitate them? seriously now?

Dolly Parton: 1 = 2

Posted by: Angelicum on Saturday, October 14, 2006
I was searching for a music video of Imagine by Lennon. What came up is Dolly Parton's version. Not bad, just please listen to it, don't watch it from a video, cause if you're cheap, you'll be aroused with Dolly's physical adbnormality.

At the near end part of the video is the line from the lyrics saying "and the world will live as one," exactly while saying the word O.N.E., Dolly did the number T.W.O. sign.

See for yourself. My theory is that she's signaling "peace," more likely, however, the rest of the peeps before her frame, and the peeps on her background is gesturing one finger.

By the way, I liked her when she sang "The Day I Fall In Love," awwww how cheesy you ask? No, it's from the Original Sound Track of Beethoven's 2nd, the lovelife of a Saint Bernard. She sang it with James Ingram and it's sooo cute, maybe because of the line "Rollover Beethoven... won't you play with me?" Yay for Bestiality! Eww. Really...

LV Recycling Factory

Posted by: Angelicum on Thursday, October 12, 2006
Rants are all over the place for the LV Spring-Summer 2007 collection. I don't know why they hate the collection, I do hate the cheap love tote stamped with the trotter logo, but the rest are cool. Like a recycling factory.

It's cool to see that nothing goes to waste, all the excess textiles from the other bags goes on another, ain't that very earth-friendly?

Yay for recycling! Seriously though!

This one reminds me of the limitedly-produced (10 pieces) bag that I decided to call: "The PeTA Bucket." hahaha! Why PeTA? Cause it's made with the finest leathers Crocodile, Alligator, Iguana, Kid, Veal, Ostrich & Cowhide. Damn.

Recycling Is The New Black

Posted by: Angelicum on Wednesday, October 11, 2006
For Regular peeps like me, this is an old story.

The Geeky Marc Jacobs three weeks ago at the MJ Show.

...and the young and belted Marc Jacobs at the Paris Fashion Week. For LV though, Fashion WEAK. Look: Whatever happened to my grandma's supermarket tote bag? LV.OE line of love totes looks like a dollar-store shopping trash bag.

...and on the weaker not, the man I hate more than a bulk of calf turd. Pharell Williams...

My Birdy Is Small

The bright yellow and red-crowned Yariguies brush-finch was named for the indigenous tribe that once inhabited the mountainous area where it was discovered and which committed mass suicide instead of submitting to Spanish colonial rule.

Nicasio's Asshole, Overloaded

Posted by: Angelicum on Monday, October 09, 2006
This press release was issued almost a month ago, but I wasn't able to blog about it so here. Petron stand by there first statement: There was no overload. As far as the Guimaras Oil Spill is concered, such incident could not have happened without the sole faults of Petron. Dude, the carrier was like as old as Titanic.

Petron Corporation yesterday reiterated its position that there was no overloading that occurred in Solar 1 as reported by the Board of Marine Inquiry.

“As far as we are concerned, there was no overloading since the bunker fuel we loaded was within the ship’s capacity in terms of volume and weight,” Public Affairs Manager Virginia A. Ruivivar said.

The company’s records show that the loaded volume was 2.19 million liters against the ships capacity of 2.24 million liters. This is equivalent to only 98%. The weight of the cargo, meanwhile, was only 2,064 metric tons or 97% of the vessel’s deadweight tonnage of 2,128 metric tons. Petron added that its custody flow meters which measure outgoing products at its Bataan Refinery is state-of-the-art and is accurate to 0.15%. The meters are “probed” regularly in accordance with the requirement of Industrial Technology and Development Institute which is under the DOST.

I don't think they were able to 100% clear the dirt they did to the environment, as they pledged to do 45 days or so ago. With this damage, if I'm the freaking president, I will suspend Petron's operation for at least a year, and will order the company to still issue salary as if they're not closed to their lower staffs. CEos, Consultants and same level positions excluded, they should also be imprisoned for at least 3 months on a Muntinlupa setting without the special treatments. As for Nicasio, Death Sentence would do. That's my dream.

Brokeback Wallet

Posted by: Angelicum on Saturday, October 07, 2006
And who cares if you got an LV Groom Wallet if at the end of the day you are still broke? Or more broke? I need to buy so many freaking things before i leave!

Okay, so Google Earth is an old news, but so what, I've never blogged about it yet. So here you go, I am broke right, so I guess it's back to McDonald's or Burger King instead of designer fine dining (Pinnetti & Puccini), which I planned to freaking do the moment I set myself free from the shuttle from SF Int'l Airport.

Here's a satellite image of my San Franciscan roof two weeks from now.

..and some non-sense image of my Canadian home, also waiting for me in Ontario for my freaking College years.

The Groom Is Alive

Posted by: Angelicum on Friday, October 06, 2006
They were able to make the LV Groom move for goodness sake. The video quality is creepingly poor as I don't know how to set my camera into anti-radiaistrip.

One minute ago, you see them on the UK LV website, after a minute, they were gone... out of stock every 15 minutes

What makes these stuffs cute is its history. The two emblematic stripes visible from 1800's LV Luggages and the groom luggage carrier who said "Montre-moi tes bagages, je te dirai qui tu es." ("Show me your bags and I'll tell you who you are.") That's why the prices are freaking abnormal. =p

Retarded Int'l Kid Indicator

Posted by: Angelicum on Monday, October 02, 2006
The one who wrote this indicators may have not gone anywhere outside Manila, at maximum may have gone outside of the country but only to Hong Kong. Duh

World Cup Opening, I asked the Italian girl how much she was paid for this job. Hahaaha!

You know you're an international kid when:
1. You own a passport, or you own more than one passport, or you own a foreign passport. Duh?
2. You know what TCK means. I don't freaking know what this means.
3. You know what expat means. Duh?
4. You use MSN/ICQ because you know they're cooler than AIM (and the rest of the world uses it) Just proves how outdated the maker of this thing is.
5. Fahrenheit = f'd up. Or you can convert from Farenheit to celcius to farenheit. Your spelling of fahrenheit and celsius' not right yo.
6. You can swear in more than one language. You're dumb if you can't.
7. You know that the US is not the only country in the world. Same as my comment on number 6.
8. You know what IB means. No.
9. You miss the cheap (and delicious) food from home! Asshole Remark.
10. Your yearbook had more than one language in it! Annoying Remark
11. You keep having to explain to everyone why you speak English, even though you grew up elsewhere. Duh?
12. You are tired of people asking - "Where IS that?" No.
13. You spent your high school years at bars, clubs, and pubs because legal @ 21 makes no sense to you. You make no sense
14. High school graduation went by relatively fast considering there were only about sixty people in your class.No.
15. No matter what people tell you, you'll never drink tap water. Or when you can, you appreciate it, and drink out of the tap more than buying bottledwater just because you can. Say it again.
16. Sports tournaments required plane rides and homestays. See world cup picture above.
17. You have friends all over the world because international kids are everywhere! Dumb

This is what I call International kid. Boasting implemented.

International kid on international news ya'll. Wahahaha!

International escapade for the year starts October til December, even if November onwards isn't sure yet. Darn.

About to Check-In

Posted by: Angelicum on Sunday, October 01, 2006
Just when I'm about to confirm my hotel reservation on one of the most expensive hotel in San Francsico, an article from CNN entitled "Hotel guests leave plenty of germs behind," has a "SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP)" as a freaking opening remark.

Interior view just outisde my hotel room
door in San Francisco last year.

My hotel room's washroom
Neat, hi-tech and USD 350 (PHP 18,000) a night. Freak.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Hotel guests leave behind more than just socks and old paperbacks: A new study found viruses on TV remotes, light switches and even hotel pens after cold sufferers checked out.

The germ testing was done before the rooms were cleaned, so it probably overstates the risks that most travelers would face. Nevertheless, it shows the potential hazards if a hotel's turnaround amounts to little more than changing the sheets and wiping out the tub.

"You sure hope the cleaning people were good," said Dr. Owen Hendley, the University of Virginia pediatrician who presented results of the study Friday at a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology.

My SUPER RETARDED Travel Kit in Sanfo last year.

Take note of that mentally-ILL blue robot triplets seen on my belly-hanging shirt, kit folder, notebook and competition itinerary. Retarded than hell. I even got a real moving robot, as in that robot you see on the prints. I'll take a picture soon and upload it here, since our freaking power is still not BACK UP YET, I AM ABOUT TO DETONATE A BOMB FOR MERALCo. SHIT.

I am so stupid, I don't have a picture of the actual room itself. I only got some stupid mirror shots of myself which is obviously something to refrain from posting here.
