On 17 February 2006, a portion of Mt. Kan-abag caused a mudslide and covered Guinsaugon, St. Bernard, So. Leyte. At least 1,000 were killed. For those left behind, it has caused them to be deeply wounded by the painful experience…

Disaster management is not just about relief goods or building houses. Beyond the material needs, there is also a human side to it and it is addressed by psychosocial intervention.

Psychosocial intervention assists the survivors of disasters empowering them to rise up against the emotional losses and thus e
nabling them to see the meaning of life despite what they’ve experienced.

Impok at Ugnayan Para sa mga Kababayang Nasalanta (IMPUKAN)
aims to enhance the existing collection system of the Disaster Management Unit of the
Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan (SLB). Recognizing that rapid response to disasters is crucial, the ultimate goal of the enterprise is to ensure that there will always be available funds for SLB to disburse even before a natural calamity is foreseen. The funds to be collected will be utilized for the psychosocial intervention that the Sikolohiyang Lingkod Alay sa Bayan (SiLaBan) offers to survivors of natural calamities. The innovation lies in the fact that collection is done beforehand so that SLB is prepared to respond immediately to disasters without waiting for donations to come.

AI Bet: David Archuleta

Posted by: Angelicum on Sunday, January 20, 2008
It's so funny that by a mere clip from a commercial of American Idol, Filipinos were already able to do background research and thus confirmed the person behind David Archuleta. The episode hasn't even aired yet. lol

He's a Filipino American who was recently welcomed to Hollywood by the AI judges. Nice. the thing is, when he was nine, he performed in front of other AI Season-1 contestants including Kelly Clarkson. Take a look at this: Amazing.

David Archuleta is also a Star Search winner when he was young.

I will try not to post another video on my blog for the next two weeks, this is becoming a YouTube-dependent blog now! Me don't like! Hahaha!

To The Oscars, Marion Cotillard!

Posted by: Angelicum on Monday, January 14, 2008
My predictions are so right! Marion Cotillard is going for the gold for playing Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose" (originally 'La Mome'). Cotillard grabbed the Golden Globes trophy for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

Click here to view my perfect-5 review of the movie.

It maybe perhaps one of the best biographical films so far. It’s so touching and emotional that you really feel the agony and desperation the character is living. The cast is simply magnificent, everyone's acting is flawless especially from Marion Cotillard that with this role she is giving, maybe the performance of her life because she's not only performing a character, she's clearly living it to the fullest. -me

Here's a moving final clip from the movie when Edith Piaf died.

The recipients were announced at a press conference Sunday night. The ceremonies and all that glamor were canceled because of the writer's strike. Sucks. It's a pity that the winning actors and personalities will be getting their trophies by airmail. lol

Ang Gwapo Ni Pacman

Posted by: Angelicum on Wednesday, January 09, 2008
Hahaha! Here are some pictures of Manny Pacquiao womanizing his way to the 'Embassy' dance-floor. Well first of, I'm not even sure if this is even womanizing, he's just dancing with a woman who might be his friend... not.

Anyway, sayang naka-blur yung faces ng mga babae, 'di ko tuloy makita kung mukhang pera. Ang gwapo-gwapo talaga ni Manny 'no?

Hey Jinky! It's time to buy a new bag! Wheee!!


An Insight: Developed vs Developing 2

Posted by: Angelicum on Thursday, January 03, 2008
This is a sequel to my previous comparative chart about Pan de Sal and Croissant. Remember this?

Of course I will have to quote this part again: "Difference between a developed and developing country. This post can be considered pointless and going nowhere. I can't say, too, that this is just for fun. It can be funny, but poverty is not something to laugh about.."

So this time it's about Chocolate Fondue. Representing the developed world is a picture I took in San Francisco (2005):

and to the developing world corner, a picture from a Children's party. I know this post is totally non-sense LOL.

Ang Haggard. Anyway, this is the comparative chart:

Ironically, the haggard fondue is part of a package from a party organizer called Sanfo Treats (San Francisco? lol). I think Sanfo Treats bought that fondue machine in Venta-5 Window Shopping. I saw a similar but larger in size fondue machine in Rustan's and it's P45,000. Not cheap after all!

After some research, I discovered that Fondue is French for 'melt' or something alike, and not fountain. So it clarified why this sampler is called Fondue, 'cause I was wondering there's no fountain. This is from Chelsea in Serendra:

Champurado anyone?

Takashi Murakami at MOCA

Posted by: Angelicum
Just before new year, I attended my friend Jason's birthday dinner in Shangri-la, to my surprise is this:

Those are Murakami flowers. As if it's not weird enough that someone is updated about contemporary art within my boring circle (I'm extremely boring), Laiden who brought the centerpiece told me that she met Takashi Murakami in LA, on the MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Arts) Gala. I wanted to die right then and there.

Just three months ago when I heard of the MOCA exhibit in LA, I told my friend that I saw a picture of Murakami (side-view angle) that shouts my name.

The forehead, the hairline, the thinness and length of hair, the pandesal bun at the back. LOL

So anyway, Laiden shared some of her photos from the exhibit and I am just so so Jealous.

It includes my two favorite Murakami sculptures.. (censored)


"The Lonesome Cowboy Torino"

At the MOCA exhibition are some of Takashi's work for Vuitton. There's a big white Multicolor trunk for sale, it comes along with 33 pieces of LV Marilyn in crayon colors. Unfortunately we have no picture here.

And launched was the super limited LV Neverfull bags with the "LV Hands" painting. It comes with the full loot of the exhibit, as well as this.

The thing is, it's not limited in Green Hills. I never thought counterfeits are so updated! I asked the tiangge vendor if I could take a photo, and here you will see how exactly they were able to replicate it. They sell the fakes for P10,500.00, I mean, I can't believe people are willing to spend this much to get a fake (?!?).

It's just amazing this counterfeit industry, wow.
