American Idol 10: Top 13 & Top 12


Lauren Alaina – “Any Man Of Mine” by Shania Twain – I actually love watching her… but I think she’s still not that good in choosing the right song. But she’s on my top 3 girls.

Casey Abrams – “With A Little Help From My Friends” by Joe Cocker – I’m still a little in between liking and getting annoyed with this guy. But don’t get me wrong. He’s good. So good. and so unqiue.

Ashthon Jones – “When You Tell Me That You Love Me” by Diana Ross – The problem with her is that she’s so common, boring, not exciting at all.  She deserve to leave the competition.

Paul McDonald – “Come Pick Me Up” by Ryan Adams – another unique voice here.. but seriously, his moves is so annoying na… not a fan!

Pia Toscano – “All By Myself” by Celine Dion – As early as now, I’m predicting that she’ll win this competition.  She’s sooo freakin good.. her high notes and voice control is just so effin perfect.

James Durbin – “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney – Less annoying than Adam Lambert.. but Adam is much better.

Haley Reinhart – “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes – I like her voice, but her song choices are terrible… she should really be careful next time.

Jacob Lusk – “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly – One of my faves from the guys… He’s so good and a lil bit funny when he sings hehe

Thia Megia – “Smile” by Michael Jackson – The judges are right.. her phrasing is really something… And the intro is way much better than the jazz part.

Stefano Langone – “Lately” by Stevie Wonder – The best performance of the night!!! That’s all I can say

Karen Rodriguez – “I Could Fall In Love” by Selena – Not that much of a fan… i find her boring..

Scotty McCreery – “The River” by Garth Brooks – he can sing.. yun lang.. sorry, so fed up with his country songs.

Naima Adedapo – “Umbrella” by Rihanna -what a way to end the show.. love her performance.. though it’s really pitchy


Naima Adedapo – “What’s Love Got To Do With It” by Tina Turner – not a fan of this perf.. really pitchy, and she’s a lil bit all over the place. BTW, bravo to J.LO for her comment.

Paul McDonald – “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” by Elton John – I’m beginning to notice that his performances are all the same. blah.

Thia Megia – “Colors Of The Wind” by Vanessa Williams – it was not bad.. I really think she’ll go far in this competition, as far as Jasmine Trias.. me thinks.

James Durbin – “I’ll Be There For You” by Bon Jovi – I like this performance.. the high pitch scream is well controlled, not over done. great.

Haley Reinhart – “I’m Your Baby Tonight” by Whitney Houston – seriously.. another bad song choice… every week talaga?.. She should really pick something ballad.. that will focus or emphasize her unique voice.

Stefano Langone – “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” by Simply Red – another HOT performance from him!!! I’m a fan! But yeah, he should open his eyes more.

Pia Toscano – “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” by Whitney Houston – REMIX! love it 🙂
Scotty McCreery – “Can I Trust You With My Heart” by Travis Tritt – ok.. country again..

Karen Rodriguez – “Love Will Lead You Back” by Taylor Dayne – Kyla’s version is much better. Haha!

Casey Abrams – “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana – One of my faves this week!! Though the ending was bad.

Lauren Alaina – “I’m The Only One” by Melissa Etheridge – So-so performance.. I’m still waiting for her moment.. not this time baby, not this time.

Jacob Lusk – “Alone” by Heart – not a bad version… but definitely not as good as Carrie’s 😛


Random Tots sunday 3/20

Chill sunday. I woke up with a heavy feelin in my throat. Makati and parang barado. It’s the cough and cold, I think. Well, sana yun nga lang.  Maybe I should go back to my doctor again.


My lung doctor, Doctor Dalisay of Olivarez Hospital, is a nice guy. Medyo intimidating pero magaling.  The only thing I hate about going to his clinic is that…ang haba ng pila. AS IN!  Hindi na ako natuto.  Next time, I’ll promise to go there 1 hour before his clinic sched. Ayoko ng maghintay ng 4 na oras sa hall ng hospital. Ugh


Pinagalitan ako ng tatay ko. Kasi naman, ang alikabok daw ng kwarto namin, kaya daw nagkakasakit ako.  The one thing I love about my is that he has patience to clean the whole house.  Kapag sya ang nasa bahay, malinis talaga, unlike my mom. hehe.  Now that we have a bigger house, sya pa rin ang naglilinis. Really nice, no?


Medyo #fail ang new house namin.  Kasi, yung mga bintana, nakaharap sa pader.  As in wala kaming makikitang langit. pfft. Ayun, hindi ko nakita yung SUPERMOON kagabi 😦 Eh dun sa old house namin, kitang kita yung langit. Haay.. hanggang picture na lang ako.

I received a text message last night from my cousin.  May Unlitext daw yung Globe for 5 days… just text the keyword sa number na tinext nya sakin.  Eh naka-AllTXT ako kagabi, I still tried it.  Walang reply.  Then after a couple of minutes, may nagtext!! “The UnliTXT promo is only exclusive for Globe users. Please switch to Globe to enjoy the unlimited texting”.  Am#&%#@!! EH GLOBE USER AKO AH!!!


Yesterday is so unforgettable for me. For a Bad and Good reasons. Nuff said.


And today, I need to focus on reviewing for PhilNITS exam this coming sunday.  I just realized that my whole life is full of review.  I remember, puro pagrereview ang ginawa ko nung Highschool.  Tuwing may exam, at tuwing sinasabak ako sa quiz bee.. review, review, review. Nung college, medyo nag-li-low ng konti. Chill lang ako nung college.  And now that I am working, I never imagined na kailangan ko pa rin magreview! Parang studyante pa rin. pfft.  Well, that’s life.  You always need to learn something new everyday.



On The Spot: Uncharted by Sara Bareilles

Love the song. Love the video. Check it out!


No words
My tears won’t make any room for more
And it don’t hurt
Like anything I’ve ever felt before, this is
No broken heart
No familiar scars
This territory goes uncharted

Just me
In a room sunk down in a house in a town, and I
Don’t breathe
No I never meant to let it get away from me, now
Too much to hold, everybody has to
Get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted

Stuck under this ceiling I made
I can’t help but feeling

I’m going down
Follow if you want
I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go

I’m already out
Of foolproof ideas
So don’t ask me how
To get started
It’s all uncharted

Each day
Counting up the minutes, till I get alone
Cause I can’t stay
In the middle of it all, it’s nobody’s fault, but I’m
So alone, never knew how much I didn’t know
Oh, everything is uncharted

I know I’m getting nowhere
When I only sit and stare like

I’m going down
Follow if you want
I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go

I’m already out
Of foolproof ideas
So don’t ask me how
To get started
It’s all uncharted

Jump start my kaleidoscope heart
Love to watch the colors fade
They may not make sense
But they sure as hell made me

I won’t go as a passenger, no
Waiting for the road to be laid
Though I may be going down
I’m taking flame over burning out

where you are to where you want to be, and you’ll get

I’m going down
Follow if you want
I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go

I’m already out
Of foolproof ideas
So don’t ask me how
To start it

I’m going down
Follow if you want
I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go

I’m already out
Of foolproof ideas
So don’t ask me how
To get started
It’s all uncharted


Crying Russell

After losing the redemption duel against Matt, the notorious survivor player, Russell Hantz, cried under his hat.

In fairness, naawa ako kay Russell.  It is the very first time na matanggal sya sa laro.  And I must admit, Survivor will never be exciting without Russell.



March 11, 2011.

Back to work na ako after ng 3 days na wala ako sa office. Daming kelangang gawin. Haist.  Medyo lutang pa ang isip dahil sa BIG REVEAL ng tmr.

Then biglang nagkagulo sa office.  Yung mga Japanese expats namin ay nagkumpulan sa conference room nila.  Pati mga managers worried.  Nawalan kami ng connection sa servers namin sa Japan. Ayun na. May nangyari pala.

Sinalakay ng tsunami at lindol ang Japan.  Yung 3 boss ko pa naman, andun.  Pinauwi silang lahat at pinapunta sa Fukushima. Thank God ok naman ang lagay nila.

Kami naman, nahinto ang trabaho.  Hindi natuloy ang balak na weekend work since wala namang communication.  Bigla ding nabalot ng takot ang lahat dahil baka yanigin din tayo ng lindol.  Nang gabing yun, umuwi na ang lahat… maliban sakin at kay Raf.. dahil wala kami sa Monday, kelangan tapusin ang work. Saklap di ba?  Pero nainip din ang boss namin at nakiusap na huwag muna magleave sa Monday… para makauwi din ng maaga. Ayun, nakalarga na.

Ngayun, iniisip ko, what if ako yung nandun sa Japan. Masayang makakita ng snow. Pero kung ganun ang maeexperience, scurrrrrry.  At for sure, hindi makakatulog ng mahimbing ang mommy ko dito.. grabe pa naman kung mag-alala yun.  I’m still thankful that my bosses are ok 🙂

So, let’s all pray for Japan, Let’s all pray for our country, Let’s all pray for mother earth.



Last thursday (March 10), before closing the show, Chico and Delamar announced that there will be an important announcement on tomorrow’s show.  So the duo encouraged everyone to listen to them, around 9 in the morning, to hear the big news.  I thought that there will be another big promo, and then…

I checked out twitter that afternoon, and my rusher friends are going crazy… a lot of them started guessing what the “BIG REVEAL” will be, and there were a lot.  I started adding my theories, and delamar herself kept on retweeting people’s theories… everyone became very excited, more so when Chico posted a blogpost regarding the tension he felt the whole day (LINK).  Since the duo said that they will announce it around 9am, I begged to them to do it earlier, since for sure, I won’t be able to hear it on that time.

Friday came. March 11, 2011.  The topic that morning is the “craziest theories about the BIG REVEAL”.  I enjoyed sending my entries, and some of them were picked.  But my true guess was they will be joining the TARA 5.  However, they mentioned right away that TARA 5, PBB, and Biggest Losers were the top guesses yesterday.  So I guess I’m wrong..

It was already 8:50am, and I was still in the bus.  I am obviously late.  So when I arrived in our building, I decided to go to the restroom first and wait for the announcement.  I even tweeted the show that I was in the CR, waiting for the BIG REVEAL.  Then delamar finally said it: “I’m having a baby”.  I was shocked! I even mouthed “OMG” and I smiled.  I’m so happy for delle, that’s really what I felt after hearing it.  I tweeted them right away and congratulated delle for the new blessing.

It’s just really heartwarming that Chico and Delle treats their listeners as part of their lives, as their close friends.  It’s humbling that they decided to share this with all of the listeners, just showing how genuine they are.  I’m happy and will always be proud to be a rusher. And all I wish now is the best for delamar, all the best for Chico as well, all the best for the duo and the show, and all the best for this blessing for our dear Delamar 🙂

Jovanny Baretto (I’ll Be) – I hate his song. haha. So-so lang yung boses nya..

Clint Jun Gamboa (Superstition) – He’s good, but no appeal at all. Kulang sa charm.. yup, that’s one of the requirements.

James Durbin (You’ve Got Another Thing Coming) – Yes, he can definitely hit that high note, in an adam lambert way. I dunno if i will like it or not.

Jordan Dorsey (OMG) – Ang tawag sa ginawa nya? Suicide.

Casey Abrams (I Put A Spell On Yo) – I also like his rough, raspy voice… but not yet a fan..

Tim Halperin (Sweet Corner Serenade) – He’s one of my favorite… but he chose the wrong song.. 😦 sayang!!

Stefano Langone (Just The Way You Are) – He started really bad.. pero nakabawi naman.. but his version of JTWYA is not that amazing.. there’s something wrong eh.. at least for me.

Paul McDonald (Maggie May) – His voice is unique.. and also his moves!! (but i dont like the moves, ok?)…

Robbie Rosen (Angel) – Hindi nagwork yung pagkulot-kulot ng voice.. his voice is ok naman.. wrong song choice again, i must say.

Scotty McCreery (Letters From Home) – He’s too much country.. not a fan!

Ashthon Jones (Love All Over Me) – She’s ok too.. and the attitude, i like it.

Haley Reinhart (Fallin’) – Karylle?? lol.. seriously, i dont like her… ang labo ng lyrics nya… kinakain yung letra.

Lauren Turner (Seven Day Fool) – I actually enjoyed her performance.. maybe she would stand out more kung ibang song kinanta nya

Lauren Alaina (Turn On The Radio) – Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood? She reminds me of Allison Iraheta

Pia Toscano (I’ll Stand By You) – She truly deserved the Standing O.

And then they picked the TOP 13:

American Idol 10 Top 24

The top 24 of American Idol 10 was finally revealed last week.  The elimination is full of drama, especially Jennifer’s breaking down moment after delivering the bad news to Chris Medina (who is just ok to be not included in top24, that’s what i think).

Am I happy with the result? Hmmm.. yeah.. except the fact that James-Adam Lambert-ish  was included in the group, and some of the good ones were eliminated.

Last season is definitely an upset for me, but this year, despite the fact that there’s no Simon Cowell on the show, I believe that this will be an interesting season.

For now, I’m rooting for Tim Halperin, Thia Megia, Julie Zorilla, and Robbie Rosen.

Let’s see how far they’ll go!

Anong petsa na!?
