Marina Bay, the second time around

It's practically December already, so I need to post all my travel leftovers from this year. See why people I meet are always surprised to see me in the Philippines?

You can never have too many photos of Marina Bay, even in the space of a few months. It is quite possible that I will be seeing more of Singapore in 2012.

I was there on the day that this opened. There were onlookers inside the LV branch in the shopping center next door. So yes, may uzi rin pala sa Singapore.

Paghihintay kay Godo

Kung teatro ang hilig mo, alam mo kung ano ang Paghihintay kay Godo (Waiting for Godot) ni Samuel Beckett. Absurdo. Bitin. Pumupukaw sa kaisipan.

Itatanghal ng Teatro Baguntao ng Mataas na Paaralang Ateneo de Manila ang dula sa ika-7 ng Enero, alas 7 ng gabi at ika-14 ng Enero, alas 3 ng hapon at alas 7 ng gabi sa Bulwagang Hayes, Ateneo de Manila. Salin sa Filipino ni Rolando S. Tinio at sa direksiyon ni Ronan B. Capinding, ipinapangako ng produksiyon na magiging kakaiba ang pagsasadulang ito at magiging akma ito sa mga kabataang magsisipanood.

P150 ang isang tiket; P120 bawat isa kung 10 ang bibilhin. Para sa mga katanungan, makipag-ugnayan kay Mauel Lacuna sa numerong 09994949466.

To The Moon

An unusual PC game. Not quite sure what to make of it.

Address is Approximate

Gets points from me for scoring, lighting and cinematography, in that order.

An approachable world-famous designer can be cuter than a popular footballer.

It is amazing how self-conscious even a non-fan can be on the couch next to the Younghusbands.

The most unexpected thing you can do at 9am: walk into Shamcey Supsup's dressing room by accident.

When the male Brazilian models are out, navigate their dressing room with care. Too many shoes scattered on the floor.

The downside to drastic haircuts is having to re-introduce yourself to people you've met before.

My lack of interest in freebies is strangely comforting. My lack of interest in parties, even those with many famous artistas, is comfortingly acceptable. Honestly, Jett Pangan was the only person I regret not seeing. Ok, maybe Lloydie too.

You mustn't take things too seriously, not even at awards shows.

A note to my future big boss

The band you mentioned last year when we spoke played tonight. The perfect timing isn't lost on me. Someday I will walk into your open office and sing one of their songs to you and make sure you don't forget it.

The Spirit of Australia

My favorite series of ads: Qantas 1998-2009. I only knew the song "I Still Call Australia Home" from the Peter Allen musical The Boy From Oz. My brother, who was in Sydney the past two months, showed this to me.

The opening shot of the first one is still my favorite. Great Ocean Road, I will see you someday.




And now, for Oprah: Hugh Jackman, Olivia Newton-John, Keith Urban, Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman.
