Pasta Italia

Some restaurants just list the menu (no pictures) and sometimes we end up not getting what we are expecting. That just happened to me today. So I did some reading and came up with this.

Basically there is "long" and "short" pasta! Here are the most common.



Just remember the shapes and the names... and you can dine in Italian restaurants with confidence. =)

FSGO Wish list

I say wish list because I believe these have slim chances of being minded by Philippine’s little president.

• That the current members of the Cabinet resign and support the continuation of the Senate inquiry into the NBN contract with ZTE Corp.
• That the President order former National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Director General Romulo Neri to resume his testimony at the Senate “without any restrictions or limitations.”
• That she order the release and delivery to the Senate of all public records pertaining to the NBN-ZTE deal, chiefly the minutes of the NEDA board meetings on the project.
• That she suspend Transportation and Communications Secretary Leandro Mendoza and Assistant Secretary Lorenzo Formoso III..
• That she suspend Environment Secretary Lito Atienza, Philippine National Police Director General Avelino Razon, Deputy Executive Secretary Manuel Gaite, assistant airport general manager Angel Atutubo, Supt. Paul MascariƱas, and all officials who had allegedly tried to muzzle whistle-blower Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr.
• That she stop any attempts by government agencies to harass Lozada and other witnesses.

To me these are reasonable; it is expected for a public servant to be questioned for accountability. This is actually a good chance to show transparency in our government. Well this is Philippines……

My Name is Earl

"Karma is a funny thing. You know when you do something stupid and you realize your life sucks? Well, thats me! My Name Is Earl!" (My Name is Earl tag line).

Been watching this comedy series all night and enjoying all the funny stories in each episode. I would highly recommend this to those yuppies who like Jack Black kind of comedy and at the same time want to improve their "English listening skills" hehe..

My friend bought DVD copies at Makati Cinema Square for only around Php60 each (3 seasons). Well, i don't support piracy nor suggest anyone to buy pirated DVDs. This is just us doing what we want to do.
