higit isang buwan na lang at beijing olympics na! ilan at anong mga events kaya ang sasalihan ng pilipinas? batid ng karamihan na dehado ang ating mga atleta ngunit buo ang pusong makipagpaligsahan at ibigay ang lahat. salat sa suportang galing sa gobyerno bunga ng korupsyon at pamumulitika, kailangan din nilang isaalang-alang ang pang-araw-araw na gastusin at kung paanong masusuportahan ang pangangailangan ng kani-kanilang pamilya. sa kabila nito, marami pa rin ang nagpupursigi. maging dahil sa pagmamahal sa larangang pinasukan o sa naising maghatid ng karangalan sa bansa. nawa'y mahalihan ng buwenas ang ating mga manlalaro at makasilat ng anumang medalya. laban pinoy!

mainam ang pagiging kalbo. di na kailangang magsuklay… pagkatapos maligo, punas lang ng tuwalya ang kailangan, maaari nang sumibad at bumiyahe. di na kailangan ng anumang produktong magpapanatili ng ayos o istilong nais, kaya't matipid din. kuwarenta pesos lang ang halaga ng pagpapagupit, gayong n'ong mahaba pa ang buhok ko, umaabot ng 300 daan ang bawat bisita kay bb. susie sa parlor ni david sa megamol. anumang hangin o tagal ng lublob sa dagat ay di isyu, tulad ng sa mga indibwal na may mahabang buhok.
sabi pa ni tim tayag, maka-kalikasan ang pagiging kalbo! kakaunti ang duming idinudulot bunga ng di malimit na paggamit ng mga produktong pambuhok tulad ng gel, sprey, kondisyoner, syampu, liv-on at kung anu-ano pa. pero siyempre, kailangan pa ring syampuhin… upang maiwasan ang labis na paglalangis ng bumbunan na magdudulot ng balakubak.
sa kabilang banda, dahil sa kalbo ako… walang proteksyon ang aking bumbunan laban sa init ng araw. kung kaya't madalas kaysa hindi, may sunog sa balat ang aking ulo tuwing luluwas sa dalampasigan. sabi naman ng yumaong si ma'am delia, ang pagiging kalbo ay nagpabata pang lalo sa akin n'ong nagsisimula pa lang ako sa aydisi, gayong kailangan sa trabahong magpakita ng bahid ng pagiging may-gulang na upang makamtan ang respeto ng karamihan. nang lumaon, maigi pa rin para sa akin ang pagiging kalbo.
on our way to baguio, izhi called me "snowball" because of my bald head… wahahahaha!
we stayed in hotel henrico, kisad road. the hotel was generally ok, near burnham park and UP baguio was walkable from there as well. we had a family room, which was good enough. but the service was super tagal… it took over an hour before they could serve our breakfast. good thing, coffee was free and unlimited.

The men's singles final in figures
Sunday, June 8, 2008
By Guillaume Baraise
2 Rafael Nadal is the second ever champion to have won four consecutive
titles in the French Open’s history. Björn Borg accomplished the same feat
between 1978 and 1981.
2 It is only the second time in the history of the open era that a
singles Grand Slam final line up was identical for three years running. Boris
Becker and Stefan Edberg went head-to-head at Wimbledon in 1988, 1989 and
3 Roger Federer has notched up three finals so far at Roland
Garros and has lost them all. He has won all twelve other Grand Slam finals he
has played in.
4 It is only the fourth time in the Open era that a men’s singles champion has won without dropping a single set. Before Rafa, only Ilie Nastase in 1973, and Björn Borg in 1978 and 1980 managed this feat.
4 With four victories under his belt, Rafael Nadal has equaled Henri Cochet’s record, who won in 1926, 1928, 1930 and 1932. Only Björn Borg, with six titles, beats the Spaniard in his number of wins at Roland Garros
5 This was the fifth consecutive Grand Slam final to be fought between two Europeans. Chilean Fernando Gonzalez, finalist in the 2007 Australian Open, was the last non-European to play in a major tournament final.
15 This was Roger Federer’s fifteenth Grand Slam final. Only ten players have ever equalled this in the history of the Open. The record is held by Ivan Lendl, who notched up 19 finals.
17 This was Nadal and Federer’s seventeenth head-to-head, and takes the Spaniard’s lead to 11-6.
28 Rafa has won all 28 matches he has played at Roland Garros. He now holds the position of fifth best winning streak in a Grand Slam tournament. The record is 41 consecutive victories, held by Björn Borg at Wimbledon between 1976
44 Rafael Nadal has chalked up his 44th win on the ATP tour this year. He overtakes Novak Djokovic, who has won 37 times so far.
149 Roger Federer’s Grand Slam victory tally stalls at 149. He has now lost a total of 24 times.
2001 The last number one seed to win the men’s singles final was Gustavo Kuerten in 2001.
1.000,000 Nadal takes away a cool one million euros for his win today.
