The Struggles

I cannot help but notice that Nick Carter have really gained weight. When I saw their concert videos in youtube, he stood out because of his height and weight. No amount of Swarovski Crystal beads can hide the bulges. And then I was surprised when I found out that in the past his weight have gone up to 220 lbs. And he admitted to having addiction to alcohol and drugs. But he got his wake up call when he was diagnosed cardiomyopathy. That got him to serious change of lifestyle and until now he tries to be healthy. This was his interview in Ellen’s.

One of the Best!

As I said, I spent almost a week looking through different NKOTBSB videos in youtube. I like seeing them perform despite the fact that sometimes they look awkward performing their dance moods that they did when they were young and a lot of pound lighter :) But still, NKOTB is NKOTB and BSB is BSB. And they have made history in the music industry. And among those videos, I love this one. Boyz II Men singing On Bended Knees and End of the Road with the boy bands.

NKOTBSB

I was browsing through Youtube and I don’t know I was able to uncover the video that surprised me. Call me ignorant but I really don’t know that the New Kids on the Block are doing a tour with the Back Street Boys in the early part of 2011. I know that the BSB has visited the Philippines and I saw some parts of their concert and what I can only say is that on the part that I have seen, they did not dress up! AJ was even wearing a tshirt with a bulging tummy. A real statement that indeed they have changed. Anyway, back to the NKOTBSB tour before I forget I am talking about it. The way I have forgotten to check our buy hdmi cables. I really love watching their videos. Both groups are really good. I like their mash up and also when Kevin Richardson joined them in their tour. I was like a teenager drooling over the videos. I think it took me a week to get over it. hahaha.

Good Old Memories

Last week there was a time that I was so down. It goes with my LUPUS. There are times when depression strikes and I cannot do anything about it but find something that would lift my spirit up. And so I started looking into youtube videos. And I am so glad I did because I got a good dose of Bamboo. Oh yeah! I am a fan of him. When I saw him perform for the first time, that was when I was in highschool, that was I think in 1994. They are performing in Eat Bulaga and singing their first ever single Ulan. Bamboo was holding a banner that has the design of their album cover. It was self titled album. From then on I started searching about them and have followed them. I just stopped my obsession with them when Bamboo left the band. And yes, it feels good to hear and see their videos from Ulan to Awit ng Kabataan, 20 million, hate, bring me down, princess of disguise, flowers etc. I know all their songs in their first two album by heart and until today even if I am a mom, I still swooned when I hear Bamboo’s voice. And indeed a great cure for my depression.

A Twist

I don’t know yet what episode is currently being aired for Criminal Minds, CSI and The Mentalist. I haven’t been watching them since I am really busy. What I know is that none of them have shown of using any air ambulance service yet. And last night, the husband and I are talking about it and he mentioned that there was a twist in the story of the Mentalist. Patrick Jane was acquitted because of his plea that he did shot Red John because his family was killed by the said man. So the jury took his side. And one more surprised is that the man he shot was not Red John. Oh my, that makes an interesting story, right? And I thought the story would be over soon. Well, it’s not and I wish I can watch it now.

ReWatching…Harry Potter!

The first movie of Harry Potter has been the first movie that the husband and I saw as a couple. Oh yes! For that reason alone it was memorable for me. I cannot forget how amazed we are at the kids who are watching with us at that time. They cannot help themselves from commenting and talking. That was I think almost 10 years ago. Fast forward to now, I am watching the movie again in our house and my five year old daughter as my partner. And I am so amazed on how she understand the story and she can really relate. In her young age, I was expecting her to be scared or be bored with the movie but I was wrong. She was so eager to watch it and kept on asking questions to me. She makes me remember those kids in the movie house. And I wish I have the husband to help me out with the answers.

Viola!

Finally I was able to troubleshoot our TV and DVD. Last weekend we were bent on watching Harry Potter because that is the theme of the daughter school’s trick or treat. But because I removed the cords because I needed to put in the new tv the old setup was mixed up. When we put in the DVD, our tv was in black and white mode. So instead of my goal to create birthday invitations for the weekend, I end up looking for possible solution to my problem. And yes, until today I was racking my brains of what to do. I searched the internet for possible solution but I cannot find one. The husband told me that it has something to do with the setup but I have search high and low and cannot come up with the right combination. So, tonight I decided to give it another shot since I am itching to watch some of my favorite series. haha. And I redo the cables and now I don’t know what I did it just works! hahah. Finally! Now the little girl is watching Harry Potter.

Unfortunately…

I bought a 8gb memory stick and I was hoping that the sales person was right about the tv that I bought. That it can play AVI files. Unfortunately it did not. And so I wanted to send it back to the store. haha. Of course, I can’t. So I just decided that we will just give it to my in laws on Christmas. Well, that would be one of our list. And I must say we really have a long list right now that I decided to start buying gifts on the last week of December.

USB in the TV

Yesterday I bought a TV because I thought our old one was broken. It turned off automatically and when I asked my daughter what she did she said she did not do anything. I tried using different socket but still it did not turned on. So I thought it really was broken. The husband told me to replace it already. That’s why yesterday despite the feeling of being sick we went to the department store. We bought the tv and headed home. While I was trying to unattached and attached the cables to the old and new I saw a switch. And when I flicked it and turned on the tv, viola, it turned on! Imagine that! I was a bit irritated with my stupidity. Imagine with the price of that tv, I can buy lots of cheap plus size dresses. But as the husband said, I just have to put the other tv on our room. And since it has a USB, I can put my movies there and watch. IF only I would be able to find my usb. haha.
