Have you tried the UPFI? They'll be having a summer film workshops. This is their address: (UPFI Film Center, 2/F Cine Adarna bldg. Magsaysay and Osmena Ave.,UP Diliman QC)

 

thanks FDL! :D though I feel like their "summer workshop" wouldn't be held in the summertime anymore given the shift of the academic calendar.

 

Would've wished you commented on my current dilemma on how to wear them bowties and suspenders lol hahaha

I just want to address a big pet peeve of mine. WALANG LA SALLE MAIN O LA SALLE TAFT, OKAY? IT'S DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY-MANILA. KUNG LA SALLE TAFT YAN, EH DI KASAMA PATI BENILDE, DIBA? AND BAKIT MAIN? SATELLITE SCHOOLS BA YUNG MGA NASA DASMA, LIPA, ANTIPOLO, ETC?

 

I just don't get the fact that there's this idea that it's the "main" campus of several ones. The established one when you say "La Salle", yes, but there should be an equal view on how all other campuses are viewed. Yun lang. Venting done.

too bored, too pissed. I'd just finish my workload, have my lunch break, listen to some Flo Rida beats thinking of those dancing Pikachus and do this:

Hehehe) if you're into collection you better keep ung mga white thing na kasama pag binili then but those shoe containers. At least they say it prolongs the life span of the kicks... (Especially nike)

Not sure if member ka ni PSL sa fb...

I don't want to keep my silence over things when I know there are dire consequences await if I don't do anything

 

I've been alarmed over the fact that a guy had been posting his genitalia over the forums, wondering if he has STD. Others who commented on the matter stated that he get himself checked, to which the guy asked the resident urologist here at MTC, but never had a formal consultation (based on how he's posting as of the moment). Now I see this guy posting over the spa forums looking for a therapist. This isn't right. Seriously. I've mentioned to the receptionist of the concern yet she took it lightly, saying they're doing routine check-ups on fortnights.

 

HIV is a serious issue. The fact that there are inclinations from posts that it MAY result to HIV just raises your wariness over things.

 

My problem? The fact that it's still about the money for these establishments. Ninja pa ba? Seryoso?! Why not protect your theras with that information and ask the client if he really is clean? Pera pera nalang ba talaga? So mas madami majakol yung mga thera niyo, mas okay? It's revolting. I'm disgusted.

 

Seriously. I don't care if I appear to be derogatory and get warnings for this post but please do take care of your therapists the way you want to take care of your businesses. The fact na pinagkakakitahan niyo sila, the more you should put better safeguards. Moreover, why don't you try to be more informed? Wag pairalin ang pagiging ganid sa salapi. Nakakasuklam.

 

This is why I have a problem with people living beyond their means. I live beyond mine as well pero alam ko kung ano puhunan ko at hindi lang ang katawan ko na alam ko na alam kong tatamaan ng kung anu-anong kahinaan dahil sa mga pang-araw araw na karamdaman. Kayo, ano puhunan niyo? Libog? Ganda? Katawan? Stop investing on something you're bound to lose when you appear to have hit that wall. Oo mahirap ang buhay pero wag mo isakripisyo ang sarili mo knowing na mawawala sayo lahat sa isang maling desisyon.

 

Be informed. Be wary. Be safe.

I feel so old that I had a liking for this MMC doctor who passed by People Support Building as I was heading my way back to RCBC Plaza. I mean, she might be on her late twenties (at the very least) or in her mid 30s, but damn, the doctor looked oh so fine. I'm guessing doc ermi looks as hot as her, prolly hotter even ;)

 

but yeah, it feels like I'm getting way too old to babysit women. These nineteen year-olds are way too materialistic. I don't even know if they have something planned even for the next two or three months. I probably am pitching at a different crowd but that's just how things are

Since I'm done with my ramblings about STDs and spas, I think I should veer toward writing that is one of my passions in life: sports.

 

56053b4cbcbf49ed9362edfdeaa6c93c-6309756

 

This guy is Zack Greinke, 32, and previously played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the MLB. This guy just got a $206 contract from the Arizona Diamondbacks for six years, basically paying him until he's 38. 

 

3707ddedbf6ea603e37279c96c8c703f_crop_no

 

Basketball aficionados know Anthony Davis and the guy signed a five-year extension this year for $145 million, which would pay him until he's 27 (he's currently 22).

 

ncuhuxkqjeaccazhb1jm.jpg

 

Of all the transactions made in the calendar year amongst all US professional sports, J.J Watt of the Houston Texans topped the NFL with a $100 million contract extension for six years. Watt is currently 26 and would be paid up until he's 32.

 

Upon trying to view all of the biggest contracts signed for professional sports (link here; it's Wikipedia but there are references anyway), it's mind-boggling that the MLB puts up the biggest of contracts (Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlis signed a $325 million contract for 13 years; signed when he was 25 last year) despite being very dormant in the public sphere (we know the US is very NFL-centric, thus, their halftime shows being a spectacle every single year).

So what makes the NFL a market haven? It's the game itself.

 

There are 162 MLB games in a season for a single team; 82 for the NBA and 16 for the NFL. What's unique with the MLB is that they play games versus the same opponent for three straight days, and at times, play them twice in the same day. It's surprising that even though the NFL employs more in their roster (53; has 46 active for a game, whereas the MLB as a 40-man roster with 25 being active), the MLB players cover more games.

 

So why do MLB teams have purchasing power? For one, the games take soooooooooooooooo looooooooooong. An average, nine-game inning would take at least two, three hours to finish --- as long as it doesn't take extra innings. Longer games equal to more ads on TV. More ads would rake in more money. That's why the NBA is going for a lucrative TV deal to increase its salary cap. That's why the Superbowl ads are as big as anything else in the US --- the fact that advertisers could reach a big audience in a big game with tons of people watching helps them generate revenues.

 

And the long contracts intended for MLB players? Well, they have less contact than those in the NFL or the NBA, so it's more of an investment for these teams. Moreover, there are MLB players in their 40s (mostly pitchers and sluggers [batters who turn out to be designated hitters]) who could still perform their duties as million-dollar contract players. Why? They rely wholly on arm strength as opposed to the NFL and the NBA who uses pure athleticism in all duties. Moreover, MLB players develop as they age --- akin to a fine wine if we were to put it on reference --- as players usually become rotational pieces when they are around their late 20s --- something that's different to that in the NFL and the NBA.

 

Which brings me to this question: do Filipinos have talent to play in the MLB? I'd say that we ought to try and develop this sort of investment. A classmate of mine before --- Matt Laurel of the Ateneo Blue Eagles --- became UAAP MVP when they beat La Salle for the championship last season, didn't look like your typical athlete but he was good. And he's a Laurel (related to Denise, I have to put that out), so you could see that he's an elitist (and an Atenean, SMH). So yeah, the problem now lies over the fact that the richest sporting spectacle in the world --- baseball in the US and world football --- appears to only be available for the people who study in Zobel or some PAREF school down south.

 

Sport ought to be means for people to escape reality --- whether it be a temporary escape or a permanent one wherein you become good enough to be a star athlete --- mostly alluded to poverty but the rich has more access to it than us. I guess we should highlight BOTH football and baseball in this country. Filipinos get bored a lot that's why it's hard to convince them to watch such games but just look at the payout and eventually, everyone's going to get hooked.

That right there is Miguel Hall of De La Salle University-Manila --- home of Liberal Arts students like myself since we've moved on with our major classes. I'm posting it up here because I've been very critical of how people have been acting in these forums. I feel way too much of an elitist. Should I say sorry?

 

Back in 2006, my parents gambled on me when I passed the DLSUCET. We're not the richest of families but I managed to study in this institution. Back then, I was really proud as to how La Salle was second in the country in terms of QS World University rankings just behind UP. Now, La Salle's behind UST. I am way too disgusted to how the quality of students have become.

 

That is why I'm ranting about education, proper grammar and English conversational skills. I've been part of The Lasallian, the school's English paper and would've been an editor if I wasn't a stupid 18-year old kid back then. I have utmost reverence of what I've achieved because of my Lasallian education, thus I'm really disgusted with how people tend to substitute the glamor of easy cash for a long-term buy of a great education.

 

I'd put it bluntly: wala akong pakialam kung call center supervisor ka. The fact na supervisor ka sa isang call center entails na nagpapaalipin ka sa mga banyaga para lang makakuha ka ng malaking sahod. Kung pinagbuti mo ang pag-aaral mo, tingin mo ba mamaliitin ka ng mga banyagang yan?

 

Value education. Life's not a race. It ain't even a marathon to be honest. It's a trek. There are different paths to go through and however your pace should go, dapat maging handa ka. Equip yourself. Be informed.

well-said.

 

 

i've got your back on this  :)

 

 

just curious, as i have no idea really  --- you mean, ang mga MP's they don't spend on medical check-ups of theras? all the while i thought they do.  Kase diba yung mga maliliit nga na bars in malate and angeles, kahit papano pinapa-check up ang mga GROs for std, kahit 1x a year.  

 

 

kung naging infectious disease specialist lang ako, i would have organized an EB here among MP's, PSPs and other G4H's just to educate them.   

 

 

 

 

 

I feel so old that I had a liking for this MMC doctor who passed by People Support Building as I was heading my way back to RCBC Plaza. I mean, she might be on her late twenties (at the very least) or in her mid 30s, but damn, the doctor looked oh so fine. I'm guessing doc ermi looks as hot as her, prolly hotter even ;)

Far from it  ^_^

 

to give you an idea, i look more like your friendly mom  :) , far from being a hottie, far from being fit. 

 

 

not that i can blame you -- it's the way i post i know.  

 

but as i've been telling guys across this board, please do not get carried away by posts and internet personas  :rolleyes:

 

they can be real, just as they can be just facades.

 

it may give you a glimpse of who the other person is......or a glimpse of who she/he is pretending to be.

 

 

 

 

i am materialistic too, mind you.

 

our difference lang siguro from your eye-candies  --- it's me who gets the guy stuff instead of him buying for me.  

 

age is a factor, of course.  

 

obviously i am already in that status where i can afford;  where i don't need a man to get things for me because i can very well afford to give them myself.  

 

 

i am a giver by nature, and a generous one at that.

 

it makes me happy to see a guy happy with whatever will make him happy.

 

far from the idea of a sugar mom, though,  because these men are far richer than me, and way older than me  :)

Good morning doc hahaha mwah. Buti you saw my special mention. Can't break down the quotes so I'd just leave the replies highlighted :P

 

just curious, as i have no idea really  --- you mean, ang mga MP's they don't spend on medical check-ups of theras? all the while i thought they do.  Kase diba yung mga maliliit nga na bars in malate and angeles, kahit papano pinapa-check up ang mga GROs for std, kahit 1x a year.  

 

I got a reply that they go to the city health office every fortnight for medical check-ups. But that's not screening. Moreover, there's a need for these women to be given Philhealth. Kahit ganun nalang sana. Feel ko the theras don't like check-ups too kasi manggagaling pa ata sa sarili nilang bulsa.

 

 

to give you an idea, i look more like your friendly mom  :) , far from being a hottie, far from being fit. 

 

your D2B post says otherwise :lol:

sugar baby? hahaha Sugababe hahahaha. Sorry for the bad pun. Anyway, I wanted to post something about one of your posts regarding giving that 500 pesos to a girl who's to sell herself? Well, it's kinda related to my last post. Here's why I pity people who doesn't want to invest in themselves; investing on a part of their body that wouldn't lose value even as they age. Haay.

that's why I want to somehow enact a law on it. The sex industry's an open secret. We're just putting up bullshit with how such laws for sexual workers would mar our (not so) pristine religious views. I guess we could put in veil the fact that these "spa workers" ought to have basic SSS and Philhealth benefits. These establishments earn anyway!

 

If I do get my PhD, become successful (and win the lottery to have campaign funds and eventually win), why not be my Secretary of Health lololol

 

but i can barely care.  i'm not in competition with anyone but myself  ;)

 

true :) and we all know that we have our own physical advantages depending on whoever sees it :) And we both know you're aging gracefully :P
