Ayos Ka by Brillante Mendoza (Video)

A short film by Brillante Mendoza titled "Ayos Ka", which is included in ANC's Ambisyon 2010 presentation, was given an X-rating by the MTRCB because the short film was said to be "defamatory to the country". Yesterday, MTRCB lowered Ayos Ka's X-Rating to Restricted or "R". With the R rating, the film still cannot be aired on TV. Brillante Mendoza's Ayos Ka, along with another X-Rated documentary by Jeffrey Jeturian "Ganito Tayo Ngayon, Paano Na Tayo Bukas?" and 18 others, will be shown at the CCP on April 6.

FREE Globe Tattoo Browsing| How to Browse With Globe Tattoo for Free

I believe that it is bad to cheat an Internet provider service in able to use it for free, but I will share to you a trick so you can use your Globe tattoo kit for free. Who wouldn't want to browse free sites for free using your Globe Tattoo USB? A friend actually did this trick, and you know what? Na-karma agad, three days from the day of hacking to be exact. Tsk, tsk. Her Facebook account was hacked. Hmmm, but that's another story. You insist for a tip, I'll give it to you. Let's tweak Globe Tattoo and browse for free. But, please, remember, cheat at your own risk. Your Globe Huawei USB could be destroyed because of this.

How To Browse Globe Tattoo For Free:

  1. Insert you Globe Tattoo to your PC / Laptop and let the Globe Tattoo Interface initiate. Once initiated, make sure that your Globe Tattoo is not connected yet, and then go to Tools then choose Options.
  2. On the Options window, choose Profile Management and choose “New”.
  3. Under the Profile Name, you can choose any kind of name you want for that connection.
  4. Under the APN box, choose the Static Option and enter on the APN Field
  5. Under the Authentication Box put *99***1# on the access number box. No need to type anything on the username and password fields.
  6. Click the advanced button and change the DNS Settings to “static” type your preferred DNS in the fields.
  7. Click Ok and then click Save on the right panel. Also don’t forget to set it as default. Once you go back to the Globe Tattoo interface, the new Globe Tattoo Network Profile would now be available on the dropdown menu.
  8. Choose the profile name you created everytime you connect your Globe Tattoo to the internet to avail free globe tattoo browsing.

I hope this works (and at the same time, I hope it doesn't). LOL. Really, it is better to pay for what you use rather than use it free without permission, no? Globe Tattoo can be loaded through your regular loading stations, and it's only 20/hour, 50 a day, so why not just pay for it?  If you don't want to spend money, why not read a book, or watch TV, they are relatively free.

Aside from, this post about Free Globe Tattoo Browsing, you can also check out related posts about Globe. Please feel free to browse this blog.

Use GCash on Facebook Games

My friends used to bug me for Paypal credits. They said they want something from Farmville that, Cafe World this, Restaurant City this, Barn Buddy that, and they needed a Paypal account to purchase all of these!

What to do with your hay bales on Farmville|Farmville Hay Bale

I guess everybody knows by now what Farmville is. Okay, let's pretend that you do not know. FarmVille is a Facebook application where you play farmer, you plow, plant, harvest, build, etc., etc. You can also give gifts such as chickens, ducks, goat, sheep, fence, hay bale. Yes, hay bale.

example of a FarmVille layout using hay bales

A hay bale is a stack of hay, which is tied in a bale, thus, it is simply a bundle of hay. A hay bale is very popular with FarmVille players. You can use hay bales on Farmville in every way imaginable. You can use hay bales as fences. You can stack hay bales (or make them look stacked, rather) and have a new farm construction.

How can you get a hay bale?
You can purchase a hay bale from FarmVille market OR you can get a hay bale as a gift from your FarmVille neighbor. Most players are just asking their Farmville friends to give them hay bales as a gift.

How can you stack hay bales?
Hay bales cannot be stacked. Though, you can make it look like they're stacked. There are tutorial videos showing how to do such thing.

If you have other questions regarding the very popular (lol) FarmVille hay bales, just drop a question at the chatbox or comment form.

Why Did Ruffa Gutierrez Walked Out From The Buzz Set?

So, this is why Ruffa Gutierrez walked out from the set, and didn't come back later after the commercial break. She was totally fed up by Kris Aquino's being tactless (love Kris still!) about her transfer to TV5. Watch the video below:

Of course, Annabelle Rama reacted rather violently about this. You can watch Rama's reaction about Ruffa's walk-out here. Thanks to

The Bomb Explodes at Showtime!

Dance group from Orani, Bataan shows people how to win just for having fun

I don't know if I should be proud with this group or what, with them being my kababayan and all. lol. If you are a fan of ABS-CBN's Showtime, you definitely know what I'm talking about. The Bomb is a "dance group" (I placed quotation marks because I'm not quite sure if you call it dancing) from my hometown Orani, Bataan. The Bomb bagged Showtime's weekly champion title last February 26. They have said during interviews that the dance group had rehearsals of 1 to 3 hours only. As a matter of fact, I believe it, for they really dance like they didn't rehearse at all. But still, they're fun to watch. Fun. And funny. Amusing and irritating at the same time and the judges obviously liked what they did. They made it to the weekly finals and have had the opportunity to join the monthly finals! Thank goodness hindi sila ang naging monthly champion. Sobra-sobra na yun! :) Watch Showtime's February 23 episode with The Bomb!

I heard that The Bomb will be guesting on ASAP XV this coming Sunday, March 7. Hmmm, sikat! Watch out for it!


Mich Dulce bags Int'l Fashion Award in London

Designer Mich Dulce (yes, the same Mich Dulce of PBB Celebrity Edition) bags the International Young Fashion Entrepreneur Award in London.

Mich Dulce’s winning proposal is set out to connect British designers with Philippine textile manufacturers to develop new materials and hat designs.

“It's amazing to be recognized for what you do and it's even more amazing to be recognized for a concept, project that would help your country,” Dulce said.

Her winning pieces include hats made of material like abaca and sinamay which made her creations stand out, hence she ended up as the winner.

“This award is for us. It's not just for me. When I was chosen for this competition, I knew I wanted to do something that would not just benefit me. I wanted to come up with something that is sustainable and not just help myself but help other people as well, increase their business, to create new things, improve technology,” said Dulce.

Mich receives 5,000 pounds along with the award to develop a collaborative project with the British Council.

Congratulations Mich! You made us very proud!


How To Spot A Fake Perfume

Fake perfumes are lurking all over the market nowadays, especially through online sellers/shops. My recent online shopping experience proved just this. I purchased bottle of Eau de Parfum from, a 3.4 fluid oz- Vera Wang to be exact. I don't know why I was that stupid that day to bite into the bait of a $57.61 perfume (and a free international shipping fee), when I should have known that it was too good to be true. You know the story, what I got is a fake. A knock-off. A counterfeit. Bye-bye $57.61 (that's 2,719.85 in Philippine Peso!). So how do you know if a perfume is fake? Harper's Bazaar tackle this on their January issue.

How To Spot A Fake Perfume:
  1. If the liquid looks too pale, it could be an alcohol-laden imitation. If it's too dark, it could consist of impure or fake ingredients. -The fake Vera Wang that I had was a little darker and rosier (and it's not even Vera Wang Truly Pink!) than the original. Plus, it smells too strong and not very Vera Wang.
  2. If the label is smudged, poorly printed, or misspelled, it's not original. If the bar code or an identifying mark looks sketchy, it could be a phony. -I noticed this on the box, the letters (at the back) are blurred, looks like the printer they used is also a fake. lol.
  3. Designer perfumes are sold at department stores, beauty specialty stores such as Sephora, and sometimes high-end boutique pharmacies and apothecaries. Real fragrances are not sold on tables in tourist hot spots or at flea markets, supermarkets, discount stores, or out of the back of a truck.-Don't end up being a "me", purchasing online from a warehouse in Long Island, NY.
  4. The cellophane must be wrapped closely around the box. Most knock-offs don't have the cellophane so tightly wrapped. If the cellophane is messy or moving around the box or is loose, that's a sure sign the perfume's a fake. - I knew it when I saw the plastic wrapper. The box was wrapped like a gift! 
  5. If it looks too good to be true, don't bite it. If an expensive designer fragrance seems too cheap, it's likely a fake. -Very well said!

So, folks, next time you're gonna buy some perfume, make sure it's not fake. And how can you be so sure? Just follow the instructions above and you will never end up like me.
