The Edge Of Glory

Okay! This is so not me.... sorry Adele...I know i banned her already on my blogs so as on my music player. I switch the radio station whenever I hear her songs playing LOL but I just can't get enough with her latest single after she performed it on American Idol.
Hahaha So mean right? ahaha Sorry but not a big fan of Lady Gaga, I mean, not a fan at all. But I will take her "The Edge Of Glory" an exception. Surprisingly, Gaga came out with this very nice powerful ballad. It has a touch of both 80's and 90's beat (which is a good thing). Inspiration for the song came from the death of Gaga's grandfather, who died in late 2010.
I'm not sure but this is the first song that I hear a Gaga song without a dark nature. It is more of a sad love song.
Hope you like this LG song too. Now I can tell, that Gaga can really sing!

TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR CELEBRITIES WHO WENT TO REHAB

I guess it is pretty common for us to see those Celebrities who went to rehab to cure their so called "Addiction". Too bad for them, their image has been ruined because of those headlines. It just so happened that they are public images and the media is eying on them. So before ruining their entire career, they seek for medical assistance to over come their addiction. They seek for Effective Drug Rehab Programs for their full and complete recovery.
Listed below are few of the most notable celebrities who went to Rehab.

TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR CELEBRITIES WHO WENT TO REHAB

TOP 5 MOST POPULAR CELEBRITY WHO WENT TO REHAB
"MEL GIBSON"

Drinking at the age of 13? What's up with his parents? How come they let a minor drink alcoholic beverages? According to some reports, Gibson can consume 5 pints of beer just for his breakfast! No wonder why later in 2006, he was arrested for Driving Under Influence. Fortunately, he got Effective Addiction Treatment from his rehab center and was being praised for his fast improvement.

TOP 4 MOST POPULAR CELEBRITY WHO WENT TO REHAB
"CHARLIE SHEEN"


Former Two and a Half Men Star has been very controversial not just because of his personal life but also because of his unhealthy behavior. Sheen entered rehabilitation to overcome his drug and alcohol addiction. The show went on hiatus and Sheen had some verbal attacks against the show which resulted to his termination. He was then replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

TOP 3 MOST POPULAR CELEBRITY WHO WENT TO REHAB
"PARIS HILTON"


Aside from her iconic figure carrying that iconic Chuahua LOL. Paris Hilton has been very controversial too. In fact, she was sentenced to Jail because of her alcohol addiction. She even took those special alcohol education programs.


TOP 2 MOST POPULAR CELEBRITY WHO WENT TO REHAB
"BRITNEY SPEARS"
We have witnessed how her career boomed and we witness all her downfalls too. Britney almost loses the limelight because of her personal issues which includes her drug and alcohol addiction. She went on Hiatus for a very long time because of her struggling career. Thanks to her Effective Drug Rehab Treatment, Britney managed to bring her career back.


THE MOST POPULAR CELEBRITY WHO WENT TO REHAB
"LINDSAY LOHAN"
No doubt! Lindsay deserves to be here in the top spot. She has been in the Headlines from one page to another because of her numerous Drug and alcohol addiction case. Unlike Britney, it seems that Lindsay has no way to bring herself into the limelight again. But then we can never tell, who knows?
She went to rehab several times already but it seems that Lindsay is taking her "Mean Girl" role in real life. Well, right now, she's busy doing her community service. Let's just hope she can keep herself away from this nightmare.

Though let me remind you that Rehabs are not just for celebrities, it is open for everyone who is seeking for medical assistance to help them overcome their addiction.

INTERESTING BLOG OF THE MONTH ~ MAY 2011

It's IBOTM time and I am so proud to share you another cool Blog this month



Blog Title


A Holiday Haven
Blog Author Jessa Irene

Blog Category

Home


What Is Your Blog All About?


Holidays, of corse, but also about everyday special and making the most of life.
When And How did you start Blogging?


I have been blogging for about a year and a half. I started my blog both as a way to inspire others and keep myself organized. I literally took my holiday calendar and turned it into the holiday challenge. I have since found that it has helped me to remember to take time for myself (which is no small task as a mom of three). It has also challenged me to develop my creativity to a level I never thought I could attain.


Blogs I Like (Characteristics)


I love blogs with lots of photos and beauty. Blogs that are thoughtfully written, with helpful ideas for everyday living.

Blogs I Dislike (Characteristics)



Ones that are mostly advertising or give-aways. While I do not mind the occasional ad or the like (after all most blogs are written by moms who would benefit from a little extra money) the blogs where most every post is an ad or give away I find hard to follow.
What Motivates you to Blog?

I love sharing ideas with others. When someone tells me that they used an idea and I inspired them to create a memory with there loved ones, there is no better reward than that! Plus in creating posts I have learned ways to add beauty to my own home, give hand made gifts, and make wonderful recipes. Remembering to take time for myself, I have found, also blesses my family.


Who Are your Target Readers?


Women, mostly moms, though I have readers with grown children. I have found that children love my blog too. (And I love that!)
What is Your Most
Favorite post and Why?

What an amazing life' is probably my favorite post on Holiday Haven because it gives insight into who I am, and is probably the closest post I have to describing what I am working to accomplish with my site.

Things We Should Expect from your Blog these succeeding months
Father's day is coming up and I have lots of great ideas! Plus I will soon be sharing vacation ideas again.
Tips For Our Readers About Blogging

The single best traffic tip I can give is: name your photos! More than half of the traffic I get comes from google's image search. The best time management tip I can give is: instead of living your life to create a blog, use your website to keep you on schedule in your life.

Thank you so much Jessa Irene
for allowing me to feature your very interesting blog. Please do take this "Excellent Site Award" as a matter of appreciation.

Follow Jessa Irene at A Holiday Haven
Watch out for my next month IBOTM Awardee.
Once again, this is Bluedreamer and Jessa Irene
, Breaking the Boundaries!

I am also sharing this Award to our Previous IBOTM Awardee Marikoy. I forgot to include the Excellent Blog Award last month. Sorry Marikoy. Please accept this Award. Thanks a lot.

TOP FIVE ANIME WATER ELEMENT USERS

It's time for another Anime-related Entry.. hahaha I guess this is my specialty. Anyway, I created this list to be added in my Anime Collection regarding about Element Users. I'm done with the Top Five Anime Kazetsuzai or Wind users and Top Five Anime Fire Users, now, let's list down another Element which is Water!
I guess most of the Water Users are Females. Maybe the characteristic of Water reflects most of their personalities..
I picked the classic characters so that you can recognize at least one of them.

TOP FIVE ANIME WATER ELEMENT USERS

TOP 5 ANIME WATER ELEMENT USER
"SLOTH"

(FULL METAL ALCHEMIST)
In the first anime, Sloth is the product of the Elric brothers' attempt to revive their mother, Trisha Elric, found by Dante and fed incomplete Philosopher's Stones until she assumes her original form's likeness. She is given the alias "Juliet Douglas" and appointed as King Bradley's personal secretary, allowing her to serve as the homunculi's direct contact within the State Military. She is able to transform her body into a watery composition, which she uses to drown others by grabbing hold of them. Sloth constantly suffers from memories of Trisha raising the Elric brothers and, determined to prove to herself that they are not her memories, longs to be able to kill the brothers as their real mother would never do such a thing. She develops a mother-son relationship with Wrath, and the two stick together during the second half of the first anime. During her final battle with the Elric brothers, Wrath, having merged with Trisha's remains earlier, merges with Sloth's body so that he will never have to be separated from her. This leaves Sloth paralyzed, allowing Edward Elric an easy opportunity to convert the water in her body into ethanol, which then evaporates into the atmosphere.


TOP 4 ANIME WATER ELEMENT USER
"SUIGETSU HOZUKI AND KISAME HOSHIGAKI"

(NARUTO)
Kisame Hoshigaki is a former ninja of Kirigakure and partnered to Itachi Uchiha, having a unique appearance with pale blue skin, a gill-like facial structure, and sharp triangular teeth. . Kisame himself has massive amounts of chakra, comparable to a tailed beast, enough so that a clone created by the Akatsuki that held only 30% of his power contained an amount of chakra comparable to Naruto when using the Nine-Tails' chakra. By fusing Samehada into him, Kisame can assume a more shark-like form that increases his abilities. In battle, he frequently shapes water into the forms of sharks to damage opponents, able to quickly produce his own lake to use at his leisure if no water is present. After discarding Samehada when it chose Killer Bee over him, Kisame is decapitated by Bee and the Raikage. It was later revealed that was just a shapeshifting technique performed by Zetsu; the real Kisame having hidden inside Samehada.
Suigetsu Hozuki, a former test subject of Orochimaru, is the first character to be recruited for Taka. Not afraid to speak his mind and always doing as he pleases, Suigetsu clashes with Sasuke at first, but eventually comes to accept Sasuke's position and even puts himself in harm's way to protect Sasuke. Suigetsu is able to reduce himself to liquid form and return to bodily form at will. Although this gives him an easy way to avoid physical attacks, it also makes him very susceptible to electricity. In addition, upon reforming himself, Suigetsu can change the size of his limbs, proportionally increasing his strength in the process

TOP 3 ANIME WATER ELEMENT USER
"UMI RYUUZAKI"

(MAGIC KNIGHT RAYEARTH)
She is one of the three protagonists of the series, and represents the element of Water. Umi is an elegant, yet a bit of a short-tempered girl with flowing long blue hair. Umi specialized in Water Magic including her spells like Water Dragon where in she Umi calls forth a Dragon of Water that's able to attack the enemy. It's also suggested that this spell can change the atmosphere by causing rain; Sapphire Whirlwind, the spell calls forth a Whirlwind of water. This can be used to attack an enemy, however, once it was used to save the Chizeta Princess Tarta from falling off a dueling arena; and Icicle Blades, with this spell, Umi rains down a barrage of ice and water at the enemy. This is her only ice-based elemental spell, however it is arguably her most powerful.

TOP 2 ANIME WATER ELEMENT USER
"SAILOR MERCURY AND SAILOR NEPTUNE"

(SAILOR MOON)
Sailor Mercury is the first member of the Sailor Team to be discovered by Sailor Moon, and serves as the "brains" of the group. Her powers are associated with phases of water, and she can use her supercomputer to quickly analyze a foe in battle.
In addition to her own powers, Sailor Mercury has more non-magical items than any other Senshi. Early on in the series she makes frequent use of an extremely powerful "Micro-miniature Super Computer" that enables her to make special calculations, scan her surroundings, track the movements of allies as well as foes, and determine her enemies' weak points.
Sailor Neptune fights alongside her partner and lover Sailor Uranus in defending the Solar System from outside threats. In both versions of the story, she is elegant, sophisticated, capable of sharp anger, and sometimes cold. She is fully dedicated to her duty as a Senshi. Sailor Neptune's powers are inspired by Roman mythology, where Neptune is the god of the ocean. She never uses the element of water in a general sense, that being Sailor Mercury's domain; instead, she draws energy from the "deep waters" and blasts this at her foes (rather than attacking with physical ocean water).

THE MOST POPULAR ANIME WATER ELEMENT USER
"KATARA"

(AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER)

Katara is the only current Waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe, a race of people who can control and manipulate water, because continuous Fire Nation raids on her village have taken away all other waterbenders. Katara earns the title of Master Waterbender from Master Pakku of the Northern Water Tribe by the age of fourteen, a rare feat.
Katara's Waterbending abilities develop considerably throughout the series. At the outset, she has little control over her Waterbending, often relying on others to help her defeat an opponent.
Katara can use water to cut through objects, summon lashing waves and whips of varying sizes, cover herself with a sheath of water which she controls, surf on an ice surfboard, run and stand on the sheer surface of water, melt and control existing ice, form ice into various shapes, freeze water and objects surrounded by water with little effort, create giant walls of mist and steam, transform steam into ice instantly, or evaporate large amounts of water. She even uses the water from her own sweat to break herself out of a wooden jail-cell

TOP FIVE BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCES OF ALL TIME

Today, i'll try to make my Music Monday Entry the Top Five way. We only have few days away before the much awaited American Idol Season 10 Finale. I'm sure Scotty will win this year and i' guess he's really much deserving than Lauren Alaina. But then this season is full of surprises right? Who would have thought Pia Toscano will be eliminated so early in this competition and James Durbin, the strongest contender failed to make it on the Top 3? So i guess we cannot predict the Finale result yet.
This season is much better than Season 9 but does anyone among the 12 finalists gave a remarkable performance that can be remembered in the next ten years or so?
Listed below is my personal list of five of the most notable performances on the Idol Stage in the past 10 years.
TOP FIVE BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCES OF ALL TIME


TOP 5 BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME
"CIRCLE OF LIFE BY JENNIFER HUDSON"
(SEASON 3)


Season 3 is my most favorite season of all. They got the most remarkable performances ever. Not to mention their great dance choreography in each and every group performances. Jennifer Hudson, unfortunately, left the season so early though i think she was not that great during her idol journey except for her Circle of Life performance when they hit Elton John Songs. But of course, the Idol served as her stepping stone which gave her many opportunities including the role of Effie White in which she won an Academy Award.


TOP 4 BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME
"MY FUNNY VALENTINE BY MELINDA DOOLITTLE"
(SEASON 6)


If Season 3 is my most favorite Season, then Melinda Doolittle is my most favorite Idol Contestant. She's the most down to Earth Idol contestant ever and consistently giving spectacular performances on stage. My Funny Valentine is one of her best on notable Idol performances.

TOP 3 BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME
"YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME BY BLAKE LEWIS"
(SEASON 6)


Blake Lewis may not be the strongest vocal performer in Idol but his beat-box style in singing made almost all his performances outstanding. His version of Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name is my most favorite.

TOP 2 BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME
"MAD WORLD BY ADAM LAMBERT"
(SEASON 8)


With all that Drama on stage, no doubt, Adam Lambert's version of Tears For Fears Mad World is one of Best American Idol Performances of all time. I think Adam is the one who started that Drama effect on Idol. Remember Siobhan Magnus' Paint it Black and of course James Durbin's Saturday Night's Alright performances? I guess they are all inspired and patterned to Adam's dramatic performances.

THE BEST AMERICAN IDOL PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME
"SUMMERTIME BY FANTASIA BARRINO "
(SEASON 3)


Fantasia's Summertime is filled with Emotion and it's like pretty magical whenever she sings. Right now, every time an Idol sing Summertime, they use Fantasia's version as a standard. Guess what, Fantasia never heard of this song prior to the competition! Amazing!

Blame it to Chedeng!

Yikes! I've been away online for almost a day! Blame it to the Typhoon Chedeng! The typhoon caused Brownout which took over 10 hours. I'm not sure if it was a scheduled Brownout and we are not being notified or something really went wrong to the power lines because of the strong wind and heavy rain caused by the typhoon. It was quite irritating because i have so many pending works to do online and I just can't do anything but to wait until the power is being restored. Oh it is kinda frustrating too because i failed to meet my goal! I was aiming to be present on Twitter for one straight week LOL. I just find Twitter more interesting than Facebook now haha. Good thing i am not playing my favorite casino games that time too or else something worse could have happened LOL. I might end up throwing my PC haha (just kidding). Just imagine you are in the middle of the game and then the power suddenly being cut off! Damn! You will end up losing the game and your money as well though i am, not sure if you'll get a refund. I guess, i better start looking for any casino games for mobiles so that I can still enjoy gaming even if it is brown out. I just can't download huge files on my phone so i guess mobile casinos will work out for me through my WiFi. I saw some cool Slot games online too though they are available only for iPhones. Sobs! I wish i could try those iPhone casinos someday.
Anyway, if there is something that I should be thankful about this 10 hour Brownout, that would be the time I've spent reading the Harry Potter And the Deathly Hallows book! Yay! I have read the first 12 chapters in one night! The longest time i have ever spent in a book! Whoa! What an achievement! LOL...

The Tales of Balut!

For us bloggers, pictures play a very important role in making each of our entries more interesting for our beloved readers. We cannot deny the fact that not all our readers read our post from the very first word up to the end. I, myself, somehow feel bored when it comes to reading long entries not just in blogs but also in books that's why i prefer reading comics or Japanese mangas because they are all illustrated and it is easy for me to know the storyline simply by looking at the images. Anyway, about my blog, it is really necessary to upload pictures every time i post an entry especially for those lengthy articles. In that way, even my readers do not read my entire entry, at least they are aware about my list and they can still leave me related comments about my post. We work hard to make each articles and receiving unrelated comments will somehow makes you feel unappreciated.
Speaking of comments, I guess pictures can contribute and attract more readers too. Make it funny or eye-catching if you want to gain more followers. Remember the "Wordless Wednesday" memes? Bloggers put pictures without adding any words to describe them, but still, a lot of their followers leave their comments base on what they see on the picture. Well, pictures are great but you can make it even better by putting some funny photo effects online. Okay, i know you can download software like Photoshop but it takes time before you master all those techniques in editing. Mine took almost a year to learn the basics! Haha.
hahaha so what can you say about this one? Well, you do not have to download any software like Photoshop and you do not have to spend a year just by mastering the editing tools since you can make photo funny effect by simply uploading your photos online. Just like this one.
Funny Pictures
LOL. I got this photo from PicJoke.net in less than a minute! I discovered the site last night and i started to make funny pictures online. Oh and they make Photo Effect everyday so you better bookmark their site to keep you updated with their latest designs. Care to see my pictures? I made a short story about the phenomenal Balut! LOL. It is an undying topic on Twitter between Me, Foongpc, Marzie, Tekkaus and Bill. Enjoy!

THE TALES OF BALUT
*********************
Funny Pictures
Long long ago, an explorer named Miltonus Augustus landed on an archipelago known as Felipinas. He was welcomed by a very hospitable tribe headed by Foongalou!
Both of them remained in good terms until one day, a ship from Vietnam came in. King Billores, the captain of the ship, imported some of their premium quality eggs. He told the two leaders that he can share all his eggs in one condition, they should create a very nice appetizer dish in exchange. So the two serve their own specialties. Miltonus Augustus offered his very nice Omelet while Foongalou offered his well-cooked and perfectly done sunny side-up egg!
They presented it to King Billores but he was not satisfied. He threatened the two that if they failed to make a good dish within a month, they will start to conquer the place and will make all people as their slaves.
So the two worked hard, they submitted a different egg dish every day but the King is still rejecting it. Well, the two failed to realized that the eggs are being incubated for almost 20 days and most of them are being fertilized. So to avoid the eggs from hatching and to save their fellow countrymen, they took the risk and boiled the eggs and serve it to the King. The King ate the dish without noticing the little duck popping from the egg. He was satisfied about the taste but then after looking at egg dish, he was terrified and he can't imagine that he just ate a horrifying-looking fertilized duck! LOL. He ran away and never came back. The people named it Balut which means wrapped. Since then, the people from that island started serving Balut as one of their delicacies. Until now, Balut is so popular among all countries in Asia including Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Philippines.
Funny Pictures
Because of its popularity, see, Beyonce promoting Balut now! LOL
Funny Pictures
Angelina is also preparing for her Upcoming movie about Balut. LOL
Happy weekend everyone!

TOP FIVE SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAMES

Sorry for creeping you out this late evening but lemme warn you first that this entry may contain explicit, offensive and gore images. Have you ever played any Survival Horror Game? Then what is your most favorite and why? Survival Horror games was first introduced in 1996 through the iconic game "Resident Evil." Well, these games usually challenge the player to manage their inventory and ration scarce resources such as ammunition. Another major theme throughout the genre is that of isolation. Typically, these games contain relatively few non-player characters and, as a result, frequently tell much of their story second-hand through the use of journals, texts, or audio logs. After Resident Evil, series of games have been developed which is almost patterned to this kind of genre.
So what are the games that became notable for this kind of genre and which of them is considered as the scariest? Listed below are the

TOP FIVE SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAMES

TOP 5 SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
"LEFT 4 DEAD"

Left 4 Dead is like a much improved version of the "House of The Dead" PC game. It was developed by Turtle Rock Studios, which was purchased by Valve Corporation during development. The game uses Valve's proprietary Source engine, and is available for Windows, Xbox 360 and Mac OS X. Set during the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic, the game pits its four protagonists—dubbed the "Survivors"—against hordes of the infected. There are four game modes: a single-player mode in which allied characters are controlled by AI; a four-player, co-op campaign mode; an eight-player online versus mode; and a four-player survival mode.
Well, I played this game several times already and it is actually more about tactics and strategy and how you can manage to survive the night against an endless horde of ghouls. What makes it scary is the fact that you do not have any idea where exactly the zombies will appear.They can jump, strangle, vomit, and even throw cars. Though there is a mode here where you can play the role of the zombies.


TOP 4 SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
"F.E.A.R"


F.E.A.R. (short for First Encounter Assault Recon) is a horror-themed first-person shooter developed by Monolith Productions and published by Vivendi Universal. It was released on October 17, 2005, for Windows, and ported by Day 1 Studios to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The game's story revolves around a supernatural phenomenon, which F.E.A.R.—a fictional special forces team—is called to contain. The player assumes the role of F.E.A.R.'s Point Man, who possesses superhuman reflexes, and must uncover the secrets of a paranormal menace in the form of a little girl.
The picture above is the least Gore image i've found online (yikes if you just know how bloody those other images are). Anyway, i like the storyline of this game and that's what really matters to me when it comes to horror games. I am desperately want to beat Alma here!


TOP 3 SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
"FATAL FRAME"

One of the most creative gameplay ever. If you are a big fan of Japanese and Taiwanese horror movies, then Fatal Frame is the perfect game for you. Fatal Frame, known as Project Zero in Europe and Australia, and as Zero Zero in Japan, is a survival horror video game series, so far consisting of four games and a spin-off. The first and second games in the series were released for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, the third game is only available for the PlayStation 2, and the fourth game has been released exclusively for the Wii. The series' plot deals with ghosts, exorcism, and dark Shinto rituals.
Fatal Frame is one of the most well received survival horror games to date. It was a unique entry in the genre, as the player explores a mansion and takes photographs of ghosts in order to defeat them. he Fatal Frame series has since gained a reputation as one of the most distinctive in the genre, with the first game in the series credited as one of the best-written survival horror games ever made, by UGO Networks. Actually, i haven't tried the game and i will not dare try it. My friends told me that this game giving them nightmares.. Errr.. I'm not afraid to blood-thirsty zombies but i am so afraid to ghosts.Weird.

TOP 2 SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
"RESIDENT EVIL"

The game that started it all. Imagine yourself being trapped in a city dominated by flesh-eating zombies. What will you do? The franchise initiated in 1996 with the first installment in its video game series, which has been created by Shinji Mikami and is the most commercially successful survival horror series, having sold almost 45 million units as of December 2010. Using horror elements, puzzle solving, and a lot of action, most of the games in the Linkmain Resident Evil series have been released to positive reviews. Many of the games, most notably Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, have been bestowed with multiple Game of the Year honors and frequently placed on lists of the best games ever made.
I am a super big fan of RE games and personally, my favorite version would be Resident Evil 2. I can name you all the characters in the game if you want haha. In 2005, Resident Evil 4 attempted to redefine the genre by emphasizing reflexes and precision aiming, thus broadening the gameplay of the series with elements from the wider action genre. Well, as for me, i think latest versions of this game already abandoned the survival horror genre,by demolishing the genre conventions that it had established.

THE SCARIEST SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
"SILENT HILL"

LinkIt's true that Resident Evil started it all but Silent Hill did a tremendous job for creeping out the gamers. Silent Hill is a series of survival horror video games consisting of seven installments published by Konami Digital Entertainment. The games' player characters are "everymen" traversing through Silent Hill, a fictional American town which exists in a multiverse, and the storylines unravel a psychological repression regarding the cast of characters along with the history regarding the town. Silent Hill is a small town situated around the edge of Toluca Lake and a large forest, with the older sections of town located to the north and along the banks of the adjacent river. Due in part to heavy commercial development, the town is fairly self-sufficient; it has an elementary school, a shopping mall, a church, two separate hospitals, a sanitarium and other stores and attractions. Silent Hill manifests itself in at least three distinct parallel layers, or dimensions: a normal, populated town; a quiet, seemingly abandoned town veiled by supernaturally thick fog; and a dark and decaying town (called the "Otherworld") filled with disturbing, hellish imagery. Only the latter two layers are explored by the games' protagonists, where demonic and disfigured creatures roam the streets and buildings (appearing in greater numbers in the Otherworld).The Silent Hill franchise has been universally praised for its graphics, atmosphere and story.
I guess what makes this game scary is the Silence atmosphere Linkitself. Not to mention the foggy town in which you do not know what's hiding behind those mist. And of course, who could forget their lovely nurses hahaha.

Okay, if you made it up to this far, then i must salute your braveness. Cheers!
A creepy Friday Evening guys!

Do It Yourself

You guys don't know what happened last week with my phone! I've been tweeting about this after that horrible incident. So here's the story behind it. Well, Milzon was making some art crafts so i decided to take some shots using the camera of my cellphone. After few minutes, mother called us for dinner so i left the phone on the table and went directly to the kitchen to take my supper. So after the dinner, i decided to get my phone again and i was really shocked to see that my phone is so wet. I failed to notice that i placed my phone right beside a pitcher filled with cold water and ice cubes. So water caused by the moisture flows into my mobile. Damn!
And since i am so impatient, i decided to fix it myself. Hahaha. I don't have any knowledge about fixing mobile phones but i decided to disassembled it. I thought, i just have to wipe all the internal spare of it including the chips. So after wiping, i try to assemble it again.

Okay! I can't close the housing of my phone... maybe something is wrong... i tried it again. Ooops! I forgot the keypad...(disassembling again). Finally! got it all fixed! Lemme turn it on. Uh Oh, not turning on! One more time! Gosh! Not working at all! WHAT HAVE I DONE!
Well, i learned something from it! Never try to fix something if you do not know how to fix it at all!
Yikes! I am so clumsy and I should have realized it on the first place before ruining my mobile phone. I never try to fix anything in our house even those heavy household chores that require some repairs like plumbing issues for example.

I wish i could but i'm really such a disastrous guy so i dare not to touch them at all. But just like what they said, you'll never know a thing unless you try it right? I wonder if taking some risks is really a good idea. Well, exploring some new things isn't that bad and besides, it broadened your knowledge and will let you discover some new ideas that you can use in the near future.
That's exactly what i did last night while i was trying to figure out how if we encounter the same issues? Who will fix it for us? I know we can contact a plumber anytime, but sometimes, you have to be very practical. Most minor plumbing issues can actually be a "Do It yourself" tasks but of course, you need to have at least a brief knowledge about it.
And so I went to PEXUniverse.Com. It is actually an online shop, a great source of Radiant heating and PEX Plumbing supplies but if you're going to navigate the site, you can see some relative information and tips that are so useful if ever you encounter some piping issues at home.
So here, i grabbed some info and photos from their site (my avatar not included).
So if ever you're planning to install PEX tubing, here are some points to remember.
Of course, you need to have the right tools before you start which includes the Pex Tubing itself, the crimp tool and the cutter.
►First you have to cut the tube. In order to establish a crimp connection, you have to cut the PEX tubing smoothly and evenly. You can use other cutters but i suggest that you used a Cutter specifically made for PEX tubes.
►Take the PEX crimp ring and slide it over the tubing approximately 2” past the end.
►Fully insert the PEX fitting into the PEX tubing in a way, so that the fitting’s shoulder touches the tubing.
►Position the PEX crimp ring 1/4”-1/8” from the end of the tubing. This way the crimp ring will be right above the PEX fitting’s barbs.

►Now open the PEX crimp tool’s jaws.
►Position the PEX crimp tool over the crimp ring evenly, at 90-degrees to the tubing. Make sure that jaws of the tool are centered over the crimp ring and it stays in place.
►Close the crimp tool’s jaws completely.

Viola! Connection is complete. Whew! No sweat! hahaha I wonder if i can perform it in an actual scenario. LOL.
Anyway, if these information didn't work out, you can always check their site for more instructions.
Well, i hope you learn something new today!
Have a great day and happy blogging guys!

TOP FIVE MOST INSPIRING VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE

I gathered five of the best and most inspiring and motivational videos from Youtube. Some of them are from TV Commercials while others are from Talent shows and music video. This is just my personal list but if you know a video that falls into this category, please feel free to share it with us.

TOP 5 MOST INSPIRING VIDEO FROM YOUTUBE
"THE CHILDREN SEE, CHILDREN DO COMMERCIAL"


I think this Youtube video taken from an Australian Campaign Commercial is just right for this category knowing the fact that it teaches us a very important lesson about responsible parenting. What the children see from their parents is what the children do. Parents act as role models for their children. In order to achieve the best for your children, you need to start raising the bar and setting an example for them. Responsible parenting involves "teaching by example."
Children are the parents' ultimate responsibility. Unfortunately, many parents out there are not thinking about being role models for their children. Instead they are thinking about what "sells" and how to make loads of money to provide for their family. And of course everyone knows that violence and sex sell. Everyone knows that many business deals are dishonest and manipulative. So, even though that parent is trying to do their best to "provide" for their family, they are contributing to the larger problem... failing to be a role model.

"BECAUSE I'M A GIRL MUSIC VIDEO"


Looking for an inspiring love story? I guess the movie clip from the song Because I'm a Girl by Kiss, A Korean girl group is the one that you're looking for. The video is quite long but i suggest that you watch it up to the end . I guess Koreans are fond of tragic love stories because i have watched several Korean dramas already and almost all of them ended up in Tragic story. Anyway, the video is a big hit in Asia. It is a nice but very sad love story between two lovers. Here, you'll see what the true love is all about. A guy who will do anything for his love even if it means that he has to sacrifice himself. The story is too dramatic but this can happened in real life too (in a different way of course)

"EXTRA ORDINARY PANTENE COMMERCIAL"


A Deaf can play Violin and won a Classical Music Competition? Who would have thought that a shampoo commercial will end up having a creative storyline like this? It's about dreams and how you make those dreams come true by staying strong despite of all the challenges in your life. There's nothing impossible as long as you are determined to achieved it. We all have flaws but never ever take them as a great hindrance in life. We are all born to succeed. You are born to win.

"SUSAN BOYLE'S AUDITION"


Susan Boyle's audition at Britain's Got Talent is probably the most stunning audition ever. Not just because of her amazing vocal performance of the Song "I Dreamed A Dream" but also the fact that the audiences realized one thing, Do not judge the book by its cover. It took me almost one day just to search for this video. Almost all videos from Youtube about Susan Boyle's audition are embedded by request. See the audience and the way they laugh as Susan Boyle enters the stage? See those insulting reactions from them when Susan tell what her dreams are? See how confident the judges are that this audition will be funny and non sense? To be honest, if it was my first time to see Susan Boyle without performing, I will be judgmental too. I will surely laugh with the audience too but then Susan remained confident proved us all wrong. She never let the audience bring her down. She sang confidently and full of passion, making us realized that it was a big mistake to judge her by her look. Yes! She dreamed a dream and she managed to make that dream come true. She's truly an inspiration. (Same thing goes with the audition of Paul Potts)

MOST INSPIRING VIDEO FROM YOUTUBE
"THE STORY OF NICK VUJICIC"


I never get tired of watching this and every time i watch this video from Nick Vujicic, I cry, honestly! This video is full of positivity. It will make you realized how lucky you are now. You think you got the biggest and the worst problem in the world? Then think again! There are so many people out there who are suffering, starving, and almost dying but again, God has reasons for everything. We should not give up, we should keep on moving despite of all the heavy challenges in life. Never lose hope and always be happy. Just like what Nick said "If I fail, I try again, and again, and again. If you fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters how you are going to finish. Are you going to finish strong?“ Everything happens for a reason and I’m sure God uses Nick as his instrument to deliver this very important message in life.

I hope these videos above inspired you too. Have a great day guys and God Bless you all ^_^
