transformer

he started like this when he's young...




like this when getting matured...







and then suddenly become like this.....









...he transformed into a woman!!!

Rustom Padilla, 44yo, is a movie actor in the Philippines. Was in the closet, got married to girl (he insist its real love though). Got separated with his wife, quit showbiz for awhile and stayed in the US. Then he came back to the Philippines... He joined the Philippine version of Big Brother reality show and came out in national tv. Yes, he confessed that he's gay for everyone to know.

and he didn't stopped from there, he came out with a bang!
now whereever he goes awards nights, parties, etc.. he's strutting around in highheels & lady's clothes & make-up...
his/her motto, "Be all that you can be".. hmmm just wondering how does he feel now? relieved? liberated? happy?

flying

i'm in klia now waiting for my flight, sitting in a quite place with the view below..



on my way here, i had a nice conversation with the taxi driver who talks a lot (well he did all the talking actually, i just listen and nod and say yeah all the time)... He booked for me, i told him i don't want those that talk a lot haha.. because they always do. but uncle kana was very nice and a kind fella tho. he talked about how he treat everyone with respect. he said he prayed a lot.. and then he asked me that often asked kinda irritating question 'are u married?', which i replied no. and then he told me about him getting getting married young, should get married, etc...

opps time to go now...

The Ting Tings

I love watching Victoria's Secret fashion show, it's one of those occasions when you can see the most gorgeous models around in one setting. But I just felt in the 2008 show the stage set seem to be too overwhelming and a.. tad boring (usher was great though), and the models walk across the stage instead of a runway. It's suppose to be about girls in sexy lingeries but in this one they are just a part of it, there's the guest singers and the distracting set... I prefer the previous ones which were more intimate and the atmosphere was fun. Anyway, what catches my attention is, well, that catchy song in the 4th part, 'That's not my name' by The Ting Tings...



The Ting Tings.. wow what an unusual fun name:) And their songs? not bad.. sounds very ting ting (whatever that is:)....


girl, just spare us the drama and let us know ur name:)



hmmm i think they should start hiring a choreographer... they look really silly in the first part:)

Metallic Snake


No I'm not referring to Dior's Vanity Python East/West Frame bag (above) which by the way retails at $6,550.00 (yeah that's in US dollah), in case anyone is interested. But no I'm not going to talk about ladies handbags because I have no clue about that topic and I have a questionable taste in fashion. :)


Which reminds me when I bought my sis a handbag as gift before, i had chosen one cos it looks kinda unique and when I gave it to her, she just stared at it silently intently... and i never figured what she's thinking at that time.. but now I can just imagine what's in her mind.. "oh my, what an ugly bag!" . I should have listened to he, he got more girly taste haha...
So one time when I texted my sis about a nice handbag we saw that I plan to buy for my teenager niece, my sis replied something like 'oh no need, just give her a little money to buy herself cos she got her own unique taste'.. I would have bought her a cutesy pink with little flowers bag but turns out my niece is now in her 'gothic' phase.. shes into skull&bones stuff, painted her nails black and dark eyeliners...
okay enough of that let's go to the real stuff which I reckon would be more interesting to all gays (hah kidding:D) ... physics, no not physique, you know physics as in science...


I've just come across this interesting article in wired science(http://blog.wired.com) about an experiment done by two physicists on nickel particles in a liquid filled beaker. The beaker is surrounded by magnets and when tuned to the right magnetic field the metal particles behave sort of a living thing. Take a look at the video below:




And I quote

Perhaps, by studying this simple system, they can understand what Aronson (one of the physicist) calls "the fundamentals of self assembly, how nature can organize itself into ordered states." The idea is that if they can determine how magnetic fields and water tension can excite these particles into complex emergent behavior, they will get closer to understanding more complicated, messier systems — like the primordial soup from which life arose on Earth.

"We still don't know what physics is appropriate for biology. This is a wonderful intermediate," Iain Couzin, who heads Princeton's Collective Animal Behaviour Laboratory told Wired.com in a phone interview. "There's nothing biological about the interactions between the surface swimmers, but their collective dynamics can give us insight into how we can begin to study real biological systems."

Animal Rescue Guide 101

There are times when you find some unfortunate little creatures trapped helpless in some parts of your house. You can't leave them there and let die, right? So let me show you an example what to do then.

Last night, I was about to start cooking (yeah testing my culinary skills) when I saw this little helpless fella trying to climb desperately out from the sink to no avail. I have other options like flushing him into the drain or squash him with the laddle but nah that's just too violent and inhumane. I have to rescue him and maybe do some cpr if needed :p Anyway, I should be qualified now to demonstrate to all of you a step-by-step guide on how to recue a distraught lizard based on my experience last night, this may come out handy in case you encounter the same predicament.

Lets call it:
An Idiot's Step-by-Step Guide on How to Rescue a Gecko

*Step 1
Check if he's still alive.
(Clue: if he runs around like crazy when you suddenly appear, he's still alive).





*Step 2

He's already in so much tension so we don't want to scare him some more. Now, very slowly position your hand with palm facing up (yeah, like what usually beggars do, except when they are using a can) and position your index or middle finger gently so that it will be almost touching his face (like trying to asssure him of your good intentions).



*Step 3
Let him crawl into your finger. Now be patient, or he won't accept your offer.

Warning: Do not pluck him or he may detach and try to scare you with his wriggling tail.




*Step 4
Finally, he cling into your finger, great!
(wait wait, control yourself. this is not the time to shriek like sarah brightman, we are trying to help him remember not give him a hemorrhage). Let him settle first and move slowly. He may or may not jump, (in my case, the little ungrateful bastard jump and yeah I jump together with him too and shriek a little but thats okay), anyway if he jump well just let him be, if not, put him slowly into the floor.



*Step 5
If he's finally in a safe place, don't shoo him away. Rememer he's just gone through a very traumatic experience and thought he will be having a hot bath in your maggie mee soup. We don't want him scarred the rest of his life, so let him take his time.



That's it! Simple, yeah?

Go on little one go back to your mommy. And listen to her next time, ok?





Okay now, if you have something like this in your sink:



Remember just follow the steps above and.... GOOD LUCK!

tricky

i've discovered tricky... well i've heard of him before but its only now that i really get to hear most of his works (he had collaborated with massive attack back in the early days of the group)... love 'em.... brilliant! my kind of music ;)

with polly jean (i like her)








Dreamed of ringing voices,
And contemplated choices.
Taste like a real kiss,
To heighten my awareness.
With all fairness, greatness with gratitude.
And simply riled with attitude
Now do promotion on tv, and ya still cant see.
Were down the hill cascade
And keep away the masquerade,
Dreamed of ringing voices,
And you promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems

i have found what you are like

        i have found what you are like
the rain,

(Who feathers frightened fields
with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind
and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of green thrilling light
with thinned

newfragile yellows

lurch and.press

-in the woods
which
stutter
and

sing

And the coolness of your smile is
stirringofbirds between my arms;but
i should rather than anything
have(almost when hugeness will shut
quietly)almost,
your kiss
