95,282 Examinees for the November 29-30, 2009 Nursing Licensure Examination

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

MANILA, Philippines—A total of 95,282 nursing graduates will take the nurse licensure examinations scheduled on November 29 to 30, an “all-time high” in the history of the exams, said Marco Antonio Sto. Tomas, a member of the Professional Regulation Commission’s Board of Nursing.

Whoa! That is a record we have there. I have lots of friends who will take the November 2009 Nursing Board Exam and with this number of examinees; I think they will get out of it alive. LOL! (I believe in you Friends, GO GO GO!)  For me, If there are a many examinees, I think there will be of great chance that many will also pass because they are getting the “Mean” or the average of scores per Nursing Practice as well as for the general average.

I know this may sound mean and selfish of me but I did prayed when I was one of the examinees, that the score of highest will not be that high and the score of the lowest will be so low so that there is a great chance that your score can get to the average— it will not pull you down, instead it will pull you up. I am not saying that you should pray for it, I mean, come on, I know there are most of you who can relate to what I am talking about.

On the downfall, if there will be a lot of examinees, MAYBE, just maybe, the Board of Nursing will make the board exam hard for the examinees to control the number of “New” Nurses but I hope not.

Anyway, whatever happens, its you who can determine if you’re going to pass or not— its with your own assessment. Think of your performance in your review classes or review time or even during your student years… Whether the test will be hard, or you have many competitors. The results will surely surprise you but that is why there is what we call, the power of PRAYERS.

Good Luck and God Bless.

Don’t worry, I am praying for you, yes… YOU! :))

7-Eleven’s Big Bite Match Finals Winner– First Filipino Gurgitator

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

7-Eleven hosted its 1st Big Bite Challenge, one of the biggest and widest gastronomic competition ever assembled in Southeast Asia last November 14, Saturday at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall. 7-Eleven is celebrating its 25th year of being the largest convenience store chain in the Philippines.


The 25 top finalists selected simultaneously started their gastrointestinal engines and battled it out, where the champion gurgitator brings home P500,000 in cash.


The finalist who has eaten the most Hotdog Sandwich in 10 minutes without spills and vomit.will gain the title of the “First Filipino Gurgitator”.


I was there, I saw them gobble to 50 pieces of Hotdog Sandwich served with I think 10 Big Gulp drinks. A lot of intensity and pressure from the crowd, after the time was up, the tedious counting… then there was the First Filipino Gurgitator.

Leopoldo “ Black Hole “Quinto, Jr. of Baclaran won by eating 13 hotdogs in a span of 10 minutes


Second runner up- was Kyle “The Beast” de Guzman, a nursing student from the University of Pangasinan, took the150,000 pesos prize.

I would never dare to do that. Even if I have a bulging stomach, I think, it cant bear digesting a lot of Hotdog sandwich in 10 minutes. Haha! P500, 000 just by eating… That’s a WOW!

Congratulations to the Winners!

Manny Pacquiao VS Miguel Cotto: Victory Speech

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Every “Pacquiao” Day… Well, Pacquiao Fight day, My Mum and I will take advantage of the situation since everyone’s in their homes (or somewhere else) watching the fight. We would go to Divisoria or elsewhere to shop —but not today. I don’t know why. Anyway, here are some of the thoughts I have learned today:

  • Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao became a trending topic on Twitter both for Manny Pacquiao and Pacman
  • Just use “Pacman” instead when referring to Manny Pacquiao to avoid error. (Pacquiao is often misspelled) LOL
  • Listening to live radio stream and reading tweet updates is also fun (No commercial/Ads)
  • Manny Pacquiao is the first fighter to win seven world titles in as many weight classes (HISTORY again for FILIPINOS)
  • Pacquiao had an ear injury prior to his fight today. Used Tuba-Tuba to manage it. But he’s OK now — got it from the radio news
  • When you had the chance, PROMOTE 😀
  • When you want to escape, DANCE 😀

I am not a boxing fanatic, nor am a fan of Manny Pacquiao but I always see to it that I watch Manny’s victory speech/interview after. I even recorded it. Watch this:

Congratulations to Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao for winning! (WBO Welterweight Champion)
Another Pride and Glory for the Philippines
Kudos! 😀

I loved Miguel Cotto’s Tattoos 😀

Reality Wedding Video in the Philippines by Buddy Gancenia

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Weddings have always been a tuning point in one’s life, which is why we want to savor and capture as much moment as we want to remember— from preparations, finishing touches the day before the wedding, walking down the aisle, the moment you say I do, to the kissing scene and the reception.

As we breakthrough the contemporary era today, Weddings also have its own innovations and styles. From the creative motif, program to artistic souvenirs, we want our loved ones and guests to make the most pivotal part of our lives—the Wedding day to be worth remembering.

As we think of ways to do so and since reality TV shows are on the spotlight nowadays, why not make your own wedding day your own “reality TV show”. It is a known fact that we are fond of documenting the highlights of our lives and we event hire people to do it for us.

Reality Wedding Video by Buddy Gancenia (wedding videographer in the Philippines), is the first and only Documentary-Reality Wedding Video producers in the Philippines’ – and in the world.

Picture 3

There are so many wedding videographers out there that you can hire for the same rates but offers you the same old, traditional “wedding videos”.

Make your wedding video in the Philippines a distinctive presentation and a professional feel, much like a TV reality show that is beyond the traditional music video-style production. There is no content sacrificed. Interviews, behind-the-scenes footages, and unexpected occurrences are put as part of the story. It’s as real as it gets.

The videos for wedding that they produce are highly personal and unique. No two Reality Wedding Videos are alike. You might want to watch this sample video and see that I am not bluffing.

Interested now? Check out their rates and services here.
