Billiards was introduced to me by my dad, my interest was cemented by the magic one witnesses whenever Efren “Bata” Reyes plays. And the toothless smile… let’s just say I find it cute, odd as it may seem. Anyway, I found this wonderful video clip of Efren “Bata” Reyes’ game. Every timeĀ the commentators tries to second guess his move he confounds them. I’m thinking Efren just might be a genius when it comes to Geometry. Because when one of my friends was teaching me billiards she tells me to remember my Geometry course back in highschool since, so she tells me, it’s all about angles. Thing is I was bad at Math! Anyway, great sportsmanship shown by Earl Strickland as well. Enjoy!

Yesterday I invited some of my friends out so I can treat them for my belated birthday celebration – Kaishi-san, Ako-san and Akiko-san. Imagine my consternation, when they all insisted that they pay for the food which obviously I did not let them do. It was afterall my treat. Apparently, here in Japan the birthday celebrant are the one who gets treated on their birthday by their friends not the other way around. hmmm… maybe next time šŸ˜‰

These are the dances performed by the Filipino Students Society of Nagoya (FSSN) for the 2007 Philippine FestivalĀ held at Nagoya International CenterĀ on May 26,Ā 2007.

  • The first presentation isĀ a modern interpretation of a Muslim traditional dance to theĀ tune of Joey Ayala’s “Magkaugnay.”

  • The second one is La Jota MoncadeƱa.Ā According to the informationĀ I got, the dance is an interpretation of theĀ Spanish LaĀ Jota dances during the SpanishĀ Period by the people of Ā Moncada, Tarlac. Thus, it’s a combination of Spanish and Ilocano dance steps and music and was named after the place where it came from. The performers of this dance adds liveliness and excitement by using bamboo castanets.

NOTE: The male dancer in the middle is one of our foreign friends. We assured him no one would question his presence in the dance since there areĀ a lot of mestizos in the Philippines. If all else fails will claim him as insulares or peninsulares – whichever will do the trick. šŸ˜‰

I woke up late today!

ah shimatta! it’s 10 o’clock already! I immediately jumped out of my bed and made a beeline to the bathroom. Showered and dressed in record time and I’m off to Sakae. Today, is after all July 21! What’s with the date? duh! Today just happened to be the worldwide release of our fave intrepid boy wizard’s final story… Will he live or die? I wonder, as I was waiting for the train… or maybe the question should be who are the two major characters that J.K. Rowling will kill off… ah, finally the train comes… just one norikae and I’m there.

A few more minutes and I was running in the streets of Sakae straight to Maruzen. A “Potter-fan-free” Maruzen.

(The window display at Maruzen today… A confirmation that in this bookstore I will be able to buy my own dose of Potter-mania. hehehe…) The people on the street was looking at me when I took this picture. Most of them, I guess wondering what the heck I was doing. šŸ™‚

Finally, my own copy. Notice the special packaging it came with, it’s orange! hehehe… just in time too!

Hmmm… I don’t know when I’ll have the time to read it though, what with cleaning (yes girls, cleaning… medyo nahihiya na ko sa sarili ko so I decided to clean na… and no nasty stool incident too. That I promise!) and studying. hahaha… but for sure I will find the time. So Salve and for any of my friends, If you’re able to read the book ahead of me promise not to open a discussion until I read it. I aim to be spoiler free so I can enjoy the story on my own and cry to my heart’s content. >:-)
