HOSTELS are the way to go

Posted by on Mar 31, 2009 in Travel

Rihanna and Chris Brown’s sex tape

Posted by on Mar 28, 2009 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Music

[ad#ad-1] [ad#hlink] I am no longer surprised at these two.  I watched their concert in Manila last November because I adore both of them and I admire their relationship and I thought they were perfect for each other.  They might still be perfect for each other right now but they’ve been creating scandal after scandal. I was so surprised at the truth about Chris Brown harassing Rihanna. ...

Flair Candy Surfing Video

Posted by on Mar 16, 2009 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Pilipinas, Sports, Travel

Though surfing is a seasonal thing here in the Philippines (Nov – Feb), we might still be lucky in some months once a day at least to have a miracle wave coming on our way. Although it has almost stripped...
