As reporters on the scene counted the survivors, the London-born anchor James Chau asked: "Has this damaged the international reputation of the Philippines?"

Here's the answer:
It's understandable that they worry about the safety of their citizens.

Once again, we're famous...

I love the Philippines but this is just embarassing and disappointing.

The Social Network

The official trailer of this certain "Facebook movie" has been out for a few weeks now. The film is about how a young university student became a billionaire after coming up with the idea of the now famous social networking site. I love the choice of music (Creep by Radiohead) but there's really nothing promising about this trailer. I don't know how the audience will be attracted and be persuaded to actually go and see it. Oh well, I hope a lot of people watch the movie... what? with over 500 Million users? it will be sad if it didn't become a box office hit.

While waiting for September...

It's a bit boring when TV in the States is on its summer hiatus. It means no new episodes of Glee, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, House, The Big Bang Theory, and even Gossip Girl. All these shows start new seasons in September.

For now, check these out:

Royal Pains, season 2:
 True Blood, season 3:

And if you like Gossip Girl, you might like Pretty Little Liars too:
One of the lead stars is Shay Mitchell who is born to a Filipino mother and Irish father.
 Doesn't she look a bit like Sarah Geronimo?
