Judy Ann Santos-Ryan Agoncillo Wedding Pics

Juday-Ryan Nuptials held today, April28, 2009

Now that's really a secret wedding! After speculations of the Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo wedding being held on the month of May, fans and media were surprised to learn that they got married today, April 28, 2009. Photos of the wedding ceremony were aired on ABS-CBN earlier. I will post the Juday-Ryan wedding photos ASAP. Reports claim that the wedding invitation is just a simple brown paper with something like "eto na, inuman na. Pumunta ka ng nakaputi" written on it. I'm sure photos will be shown on SNN later.

Cingular/at&t Blackberry 9000 Bold Unlock Codes

How to unlock and activate a Blackberry 9000 Bold from Cingular-at&t?

Growing up in an "OFW family", I usually have the privilege to experience "things-America", including mobile phones. Cingular Refurbished Phones to be exact. But the main problem regarding a Cingular phone is unlocking it. Of course I couldn't use my Cingular Blackberry Bold 9000 here in the Philippines unless I have the unlock codes, which I don't have. I searched the web for "Cingular Blackberry Bold 9000 Unlock Codes" and "how to activate Cingular Blackberry Bold 9000" but the results offered $25-$30 for Cingular Unlock Codes. And thats too much for me.

My Mom said that those Unlock Codes provided do not really activate your Cingular Phones. She purchase Cingular unlock codes from a site, paid $15 for it and the unlock codes were sent to her email. She followed the intructions thoroughly, but her Cingular phone was still unlocked. As for the Unlock Codes for my Cingular Blackberry Bold 9000, I'll think about it before purchasing. Or maybe I will send my phone to the neighborhood mobile phone technician and see if he could find a way to Unlock my Cingular Blackberry Bold 9000 phone.

April 20 is National Pot Smoking Day!

Ever heard of the term "420"? According to the editor of High Times, Steven Hager, the term "420" originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smoking students who called themselves the Waldos. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 a code for a time to get high, and its use spread among members of an entire generation through various vehicles like the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. Other versions say 420 originated from a police dispatch code that identified pot smokers or that 420 was the number of chemical compounds that are found in pot. Really, 4/20 or April 20 is National Pot Smoking Day. National Weed Day is celebrated annually by pot-smokers, of course. This year's 420 celebration will also focus on the debate regarding legalization of marijuana. On May 2 there will be a worldwide marijuana march that will be held in over 544 cities in 54 nations around the world to celebrate the medicinal value and spiritual benefits of marijuana.

Legalize it (???)!

Is the post office closed on Good Friday? Here in the Philippines, yes, but in some US States and other countries, post offices are open.

Is Good Friday a Federal holiday? Well, I really don't know.

Is Good Friday a bank holiday? I think so.

Can you eat meat on Good Friday? I can. I don't know about you. It's up to you, really.

Why do they call it Good Friday? mmm....

Is stock market open on Good Friday? I don't know about stock market, so I can't answer that thing. LOL.

Sorry about this post, I just want to post something because my Good Friday is really boring.


Selecta Ice Cream Pistachios and Cashews Variant is SAFE for consumption--Unilever Philippines

The very night that I read about the Salmonella Pistachio scare, the first thing I did was write an inquiry to the Consumer Advisory Service of Unilever Philippines regarding the Pistachios and Cashews flavor of Selecta Ice Cream. Really, I think I'm the first one who got scared to learn that there's Salmonella in Pistachio nuts and products. I love Pistachios and Cashew ice cream of Selecta. That's the only flavor that I consume for the past I don't know how many years. Unilever Philippines always answer my e-mails. And here is their response regarding MY Pistachio ice cream Salmonella scare:

Dear Ms. Guillermo,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the subject. To get to the bottom of your queries here is our response.

1. We are confident that our products are not affected because of so many reasons:
- We source our pistachio nuts from Sacramento California specifically from Blue Diamond and Houston nuts.

- What is very important is that these nuts prior to our use in ice cream, they are all roasted by a local supplier up to 325 degrees Celsius which will kill any micro organisms including salmonella.

- This local roasting process practically and clearly ensure that the pistachios we use for our ice cream variant is safe and fit for consumption. This in effect should de couple us from the current concern in US.

- Upon receipt of the locally roasted Pistachio nuts they are subjected to microbiological analysis which includes a test and check for salmonella.

- Prior to its use the roasted pistachios are properly preserved to avoid any contamination.

- All our ice cream finished products including the Pistachio ice cream variant are once more subjected to the same testing and analysis prior to its release to the market.

2. Further steps that we intend to take is to submit to BFAD a Positive Assurance notice that our Pistachio Ice cream variant is safe and has been microbiologically examined throughout the manufacturing process , ie from raw material receipt , roasting and finished ice cream product. We also intend to proactively submit this ice cream variant for BFAD validation test if warranted by the authorities.

Salmonella is a bacteria commonly found in the intestinal tract of animals such as rodents, poultry etc. and they usually transmitted through fecal droppings. Therefore this can be eliminated in the food manufacturing processes via the strict implementation of GMP ( Good Manufacturing Practice ) , HACCP ( Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points ) and proper storage and transport.

Rest assured that the interest of the consuming public is our primary concern.

We do appreciate your inquiry on this matter. For further concerns, feel free to contact Unilever Consumer Advisory Service at (02) 588-8800.

Again, thank you for your continued support and patronage!

Consumer Advisory Service
Unilever Philippines

I'm really glad when I read this, I hurriedly ran to the grocery to buy myself a tub of Pistachios and Cashews Ice Cream from Selecta! Heaven.


Get Bench Coke Shirts in Jollibee

Last night we had a burger and fries to go at Jollibee here in Orani, Bataan and learned about the chance to win a Coke Smile shirt by Bench when you buy any large Coca-Cola products. This is how it goes: When you buy a large Coke, Sprite, or Royal Tru-Orange from Jollibee outlets, you'll be entitled to draw a coupon from their Coke Smile Shirt raffle box and of course, if the coupon's printed with "You won a Coke Smile Shirt from Bench" or something like that, then you got it! And what did I get? The ever-reliable phrase that I get almost everyday of drinking Coke: "Smile na!" Goodluck!
