Dunkin Donut + Rachel Ray + Scarf


To start this, Dunkin Donut signed up with Rachel Ray as their new commercial model. She will appear on TV, prints, radio and special appearances on behalf of dunkin donut. In one ad she made, she was wearing a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men. Because of the Arabic influence of the scarf the ad created a lot of criticism, even up to the point of boycotting donut chain. Dunkin donut decided to cancel the ad although that scarf was used without any symbolism meant.
You won’t be seeing Rachel Ray’s with DD anymore, maybe a different one in the future.

Charice Pempengco


Charice Pempengco was recently in Las Vegas upon the invitation of David Foster in a show entitled David Foster & Friends. David Foster is a musician-record producer and the show was in Mandalay Bay last May 23rd with forter's discoveries with an audience of almost 10,000. It was a benefit show by Foster. Charice sang two songs, a medley of Whitney Houston songs in the movie Bodyguard which was produced by Foster and “Am I Telling You” from dreamgirls also produced by Foster. She got two standing ovations, loud cheers after each song and the audience was teary eyed . Charice was thrilled, happy and emotional being in the same show with famous singers like Bocelli, Groban and Buble. So Charice is Foster’s new discovery . He has nothing but praises to her. These are the comments to her:
“Tonight, a star is born” – David Foster
“I had the great pleasure of being able to stand inside behind the stage when she was performing…she has a beautiful voice” – Josh Groban
Charice Pempengco has made Filipinos proud of her in every performance she go. Her international sensation started off from where she got discovered by the Ellen degeneres show to perform in the u.s last year. She was at the Paul O’Grady show in London last April and her guesting with Oprah was recently shown on national tv last may 12th.
This 16 year old is always thankful for all the breaks and blessings she has been getting. Good luck and more success.

a baby on ebay


This happened in berlin, germany wherein a 7-month old baby was posted on ebay for one euro. Are they out of their minds? People who saw the ad called the police. There were no bidders for the two and a half hours before ebay deleted the auction. The baby is now in the care of youth services and the mother says that she was only playing a joke. They are being investigated for child trafficking.

KC Concepcion & Richard Gutierrez loveteam


KC is from Abs-cbn and Richard is from GMA-7 but the two are making movies together. First movie is from Star Cinema of course starring KC and Richard, partly to be shot in Greece. The playdate of this light romance movie is on August 27th and the shooting starts on May 28 and will be directed by Joyce Bernal.
After their movie with abs-cbn, they will do another one with GMA-7, a 2009 valentine offering, entitled "When I met you" from APO's song of the same title. The project will start September 2008 immediately after their first movie is out. It will be directed by Jose Javier Reyes.

Richard signed up for only one movie with abs-cbn but KC has 3 with gma-7. So who thinks that the 2 rival station will not kiss and make up? Do you think this will beat the Sharon-Gabby of the 80's?

is smart car the solution?


With gas prices soaring to almost $4.00/gallon, the waiting list if you want to buy a smart car is one year or around 22 months. This car is 9 feet long , 5 feet wide, 5.1 feet height and can hit up to 30-33 miles per gallon city driving and 40 miles per gallon on highway driving . I has 70 horsepower and a 3 cylinder engine with maximum speed of 90/mph. Smart car has earned high ratings for front and side cash protections despite being a small car. The base model costs around $13,000. Already around 7,000 sold in the U.S. since it was intoduced in January. The manufacturer is Daimler AG Mercedes Benz.

So what do you think? For me, the car is cute, i saw it at the New York Auto Show last March but i need a bigger car. I will be scared to drive this fortwo car on highways and freeways.

maria sharapova vs. WTA


Dated: May, 8, 2008
(I thought i posted this but forgot - so here it is now and the latest update)

There is a controversy going on now between Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and Maria Sharapova, the no. 2 in women’s tennis. WTA requires players to participate in activities to promote the association and this controversial one is a 4 hour commercial shoot for WTA. Maria Sharapova refused to participate because it will take from fri, sat or Sunday and she has to take a 12 hour flight from LA. She said that she has her own personal rule: no shooting before tournaments because is it mentally draining and she just want to focus on her tennis. She explained her side on her website: If she does not participate, WTA is threatening her with a fine of more than $300,000.

Latest update: as of May 12, 2008

As un update, as of May 12, Maria Sharapova has reached a compromise with WTA and has already completed a photo shoot with them. It was on the day before the Italian tournament (Sunday) but instead of a 4-hour photo shoot it was only for 90 minutes.
On the WTA ranking, Sharapova (Russia) is no. 2 with Justine Henin (Belgium) on the first place and Ana Ivanovic (Serbia) as third. The French Open will start May 25 – June 8 at Roland Garros, Paris.

Yes, the rumor is true. Mariah Carey, 38 and actor/rapper Nick Cannon, 27 got married in the Bahamas last April 30. The marriage took place at Mariah’s estate on Windermere Island of the Bahamas. It was a sunset wedding with few friends around after a 2 month whirlwind romance. They met during the MTV shooting of her song “Bye, bye.” The marriage proposal happened 5 days before the wedding at the rooftop of a New York apartment. Mariah wore an off white dress by Nile Cmylo and a Christian Louboutin shoes while Nick was in a white Balenciaga suit. This is the first marriage for Nick Cannon and the second for mariah.

The Stumble Upon Meme


Tagged by my blogger friend marc. Here's another useful meme.

As told by marc;

I read that it is possible to increase the traffic of your blog through StumbleUpon. So I have decided to try it out, with your help ofcourse. Here is the concept:Stumble the pages that link to you. In this way you drive more traffic to the page containing your link and thus you hope that some of that traffic comes back to you via the link on that page.Supposedly, we are to link ourselves to Stumbled sites to generate the traffic that we want. But what if we could just Stumble on each other's sites/blogs?Let's modify things a bit and make our very own StumbleWorthy list. Why have a list, you say? A list is necessary for the participants to StumbleUpon. And also, it's needed to check whether the participants are really Stumble-ing. Plus, it helps your Technorati authority soar high! Neat, huh? Idea of having a list is actually because of The Big Bang. Click on the link to join.

Here are the rules:


2. Add your site(s) to the list. Just be sure to post the "StumbleWorthy List" at each site you add.

3. Let me know your blog’s name and url by leaving me a comment HERE. I will add you to the master list.

4. Come back and copy the master list back to your site, often. This will allow the new comers to achieve equal benefit as the late comers do.

5. Register in StumbleUpon and install the toolbar.

6. Go to the sites found on the list and give them a thumb up (I like it!).

7. Add me as your friend in StumbleUpon: Blanne.

Note: Your url will be deleted in the Master List if you do not comply to the given rules.

~StumbleWorthy List~

1. Hit-or-Miss 2. Mommy's Little Corner 3.Unpredictable Life 4. The Journey 5. Sigh 6. Say Cheese 7. Make Every Day Your Lucky Day 8. Blessed Sanctuary 9. Hailey's Beats and Bits 10. Photo Hook 11. A Sweet Taste Of Life 12. Bits and Pieces drift14, mY cAreLeSS WhIsPerS 15. your link here


I would like to pass this to cheerful, maialog and genny.

$2.99/gallon gas for 3 years


Chryster is offering to its buyers or lesees of new vehicles a locked up price of gasoline and diesel for $2.99/gallon for 3 years. So if you buy or lease a brand new car from chrysler, Jeep or Dodge, you will get a card to be used in buying gas and the difference between the current gas price and $2.99 will be paid by chrysler. This offer will start Wednesday up to May 31, 2008. It is based on 12,000 miles of driving per year. Chrysler calls this offer “a gas price protection policy that eliminates the risk of further spikes in fuel prices.”
With gas prices increasing everyday, car dealers are thinking of ways to lure buyers to buy cars. Decline in SUV and truck sales have caused some car companies to layoff and buyouts. Gas right now is almost $4/gallon and how much more this summer. So do you think this offer will make you buy a car?
