Reality School July 27, 2008

So ladies and gents who want even that 15 minutes of fame… are you ready for Reality? Reality has been shown for quite some time now and I mean as early as the 1940s (technically when TV was invented already). These old school reality shows are mainly those games and variety shows. Hardcore Reality shows though have only surfaced in the early 90s. But in the year 2000 and up, there are just Reality shows every station, every channel… everywhere!

Now what I think about this reality school thing…? I find it quite odd why they would put up one… Isn’t it that reality shows are supposed to have no scripts at all? …and that you just appear to be you… as is?

Is reality now getting fake?

And, the worst part of it all is that they have to pay a tuition fee so that they could be real-er! Now this is really interesting… Though this qualifies as an entry in my “wall of the wierd“, I must say that it’s actual existence makes it real… Now I know we all get “blur” by now. How do you define reality now?

Now that we are on the topic, I just want to share that there are different kinds of Reality Shows namely:

Documentary style (Pinoy Big Brother (2005) (Philippines), The Real World (1992), Temptation Island (2001), The Simple Life (2003), Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County (2004), The 5th Wheel (2001))

Elimination/Game Shows (Pinoy Big Brother (2005) (Philippines) – again, America’s Got Talent (2006), American Idol (2002) , So You Think You Can Dance (2005) – my personal favorite, Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? (2000), The Amazing Race (2001), Pilipinas, Game KNB? (2001), So You Think You Can Dance (2005) – personal fave ๐Ÿ™‚ and etc… this category seems to be clear already so you know what I mean :))

Self-Improvement/Makeover (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (2003), The Swan (2004) (US), Extreme Makeover (2002), America’s Next Top Model (2003-2007) )

Renovation (Pimp My Ride (2004) (MTV, US), Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2003))

Social Experiment (Wife Swap (2002) (2003) (UK), Secret Millionaire)

TV Shows (just to many to name…)

Hidden Cameras (Punk’d (2003) – my favorite also *Ashton Kutcher* ~faints!~, Scare Tactics (2003), Wow Mali Mali, Just For Laughs Gags (Canada))

Hoaxes (The Joe Schmo Show (2003), My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss (2004?), My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancรฉ (2004))

I would like to define this one as people might be confused about this category.

In hoax reality shows, the entire show is a prank played on one or more of the cast members, who think they are appearing in a legitimate reality show; the rest of the cast are actors who are in on the joke

Parodies (Drawn Together (2004), The Office (US) (2005))

While not reality TV in the proper sense, these scripted parody shows reflect the level of pop culture status that reality TV has become.
– Wikipedia

Funny also.. the names of these reality TV shows are long and sometimes funny:
The Real Housewives of Orange County – Desperate Housewives and the OC combined?

Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County (2004) – really…..?

Who Wants to Marry My Dad? (2004) – This one just funny title

How to Get Lucky (2005) (UK) – haven’t watched this… Luck could be taught?!? @.@

Shopping for Love (2005) (Australia) – That’ll be expensive…

Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? (2000) – so long name… it’s like one of those spam emails… *whistles*

How Clean Is Your House? (2003) (2004) (UK) – errmmm… now I don’t want to enter this one

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (2003) – this one funny name but effective and yes… guys sometimes need help from gays… *whistles again*

What the Butler Saw (2004) (UK) – intriguing…

Wife Swap (2002) (2003) (UK) – how aobut Husband Swap? *whistles again*

Boys will be Girls (2006) (UK) – ๐Ÿ˜€ now I want to watch this ๐Ÿ™‚

The Girls Next Door (2005) – yeah is popular among guys

Boiling Points (US) MTV – I know this one… but curious: Could they fire mtv for this? I mean…

Fire Me…Please (2005) – oh yes… why is this not showing in the Phil?

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! (2002– present) (UK) – why where are you?

Be a Grand Prix Driver (2003) (UK) – OMG! OMG! I want to cast in Philippine version *drools*

Britain’s Worst Celebrity Driver (2005) (UK) – now what exactly do they tape/do here?

Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll (2007) (US) – why me dissapointed with this personally… There was no PCD after this and I just don’t want to say more.

America’s Most Smartest Model (2007) (US) – This is interesting! Complete package!

The Dark Night on IMAX @ MOA July 24, 2008

Filed under: Entertainment and Lifestyle,events,personal,Travel and Leisure — hannaherika @ 2:34 pm
Spotted. H outside Kingswood Arcade, waiting for cab to arrive. Notice the Mc-do and how near it is from where I live.

I look so tan here, I don’t know why… I’m also so blue… Down with the sickness again… I love my Prada bag! but it’s so heavy carrying one! It hurts my back once again… Oh this scoliosis thing has to end… I better go to a chiropractor already – but It’s so expensive 1! Sessions are at every week and price ranges about PHP2,000. Now I was thinking… How many Lenses could I buy with it already If in a year there’s 52 weeks timesing (Martin’s other term for “multiplying“) 2K?

It doesn’t sound original because measuring in lenses is Brian Laborada’s (notice the full name – so that your name could be searched already in google) way comparing things.

Angela however, measures in terms of bags!

Kristel measures in terms of miles and travel destinations!

While Stephen measures in fishes…

Now me, I couldn’t think of anything original except “How many gadgets could I buy with it already?”


so many people @ Mall of Asia! SM Mall of Asia’ (also known as MOA) is the largest shopping mall in the Philippines and is the 3rd largest shopping mall in the world in terms of Gross Leasable Area.

Early arrival @ IMAX Theater, I think we need to eat dessert first.

I am missing Vinz so much! This is the first weekend we got together again after his arrival from L.A. (Notice the “bling” – iLike!) So we did first what we love to do… eat cheesecake at Cheesecake!

Blueberry Cheesecake drools… I love cheesecakes

But I like this one better! It’s called a Pistachio White Cheesecake… It’s simple yet oozing with unique flavour! It looks so beautiful that I don’t want to eat it…

after 20 mins… (yes 20 only) we headed back to IMAX and there got so many employees! I must still say I’m quite lucky to be working at a company who gives free IMAX tickets to all employees *winks* ehemz ehemz…

Poor man… he doesn’t know I’m blogging about him ๐Ÿ˜› the screen is too big for me to capture! The whole time the movie was showing, I didn’t know if my heart is still in its right place! I just love how Heath Ledger portrayed the role! He’s the best joker ever! Too bad though, we could see him doing that role only once.

while waiting… there stime for camwhoring!
After the dark knight we went shopping!!! Gadget shopping baby!
It’s so cold in this store!

And Vinz finally buys the Guitar Hero for NDS! See, this is one of the many many reasons why I prefer NDS over PSP. NDS is just so interactive and you can do and play many unique games in it… and now that guitar hero is already portable… I’m just saying this thing is close to being my perfect portable toy!

Oh! BlurJess will love this!!! GG headband for sale!

I had a very exhausting weekend and ’tis time to say Sayonara Orangs!


Bored Board Part 1 July 20, 2008

*click on the pictures to enlarge*

The day started with our board of the bored. Why are we bored? Our team transferred from the Penthouse to the Basement! Basement = 20th floor, we just call it one because that floor is reserved for โ€œfutureโ€ expansion. Hence, no people there yet, except us! Click “more” for more pictures

Test Shot…

Guess where this is… a Garden? Park? but why are there mannequins in bikinis far there? … yep we’re at a mall! (I am right am I… Bonifacio High Street is some kind of sort of a mall… right?)

Philip Stein! See Ezra and Angela and me window shopping! Angela’s got nice nice hair…

Another angle of Bonifacio High Street… The heat makes me want to jump to this pond/fountain… see somehow we get lucky being close to this mall strip that I adore so much… But unlucky enough if you know prices here are $$$… But still, welcome to the good life people…

Ok… Lunch here we are at New Orleans… It’s actually my first time eating here. Facts about this resto: the other restaurant adjacent to this one is “Claw Daddy”; Claw Daddy and New Orleans have same owner. So, you could ask the waiter for two menus.

Candy Cutie and Flair Candy… hmm… How bout creating a Fansite for this candy cutie… hmmm… Candy Cutie won’t mind internet exposure… Especially if pretty girls and hot ladies would want to be his fan… By the way, Martin is called candy Cutie because he appeared in the pages of Candy magazine, a local magazine who’s market targets teens. How hot is it you say being a candy cutie? Check this out:

yes.. very familiar celebrities you say… Most of them are from Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition (1st batch)

Also this one… Aaron Agasi is Carlos Agasi’s little bro by the way…

but this one is our Candy Cutie!!! ain’t we all proud to be his teammates lolz ๐Ÿ˜€

Camwhoring we are…

ok now I’m hungry over oysters with lots n lots of cheese!!! I’m so hungry I could eat its shell… better not look at me now… look up instead…

yep, wish I had these in my room ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovely fountain you must say… but pretty Angela adds the final touch to the picture ๐Ÿ™‚

yep… Fridays are actually desperate times for us. Almost weekend yet still many stuff and meetings to do. Until next Friday then…

Filipina Girl – Marcus Davis Jr.

The lyrics
I just stumbled upon this song in imeem. This guy knows a lot about the Philippines including our hotspot malls like Greenbelt and Rockwell and even our different provinces. I posted the lyrics for referral. I love the rythm of the song though, it’s just quite chilling. Probably he has preferrence but I think that all the ladies in the world deserve a song like this… Woman appreciation people… There’s this saying, “Behind every man’s success is a woman.”

For the lovers in love, guys, please do show your appreciation to your gals. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kiss your girl right now (random surprise) or if you’re far away from each other, do message a sweet note… ๐Ÿ™‚ We girls really do appreciate just simple but sincere gestures. It could make our day and we could not ask for more. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ladies, let’s continue to be independently strong, patient, understanding and mature enought to handle and balance relationship with many other things. Support our men in every endeavour that they do that enhances both his personality and your relationship together and be the woman behind their succes (hehe). Give love, spread love.

She said she grew in a province (Malolos, Bulacan)…
I say let me up and create your (…)
Hop up in a sweep, we can take a shopping spree
Greenbelt, Rockwell is all cool with me.

‘Coz you got to be the baddest girl I seen baby
