Survivor: The Cook Islands Edition

s13_cast_vlg.jpg

Finally I got time to watch the TV series Survivor, a reality television game show that is produced around the world. The one that i’m hooked on is the Survivor Cook Islands Episode.

There are 20 stranded strangers in the island and they were divided into 4 tribes. There is the Puka-Puka tribe( the Asian American), Raratonga Tribe (Caucasian Americans), Aitutaki (Hispanic Americans), and the Manihiki Tribe ( African Americans). And each tribe compete in every challenge; the reward challenge or the immunity challenge. Whats good with this reality TV show is that each challenge would prove each contestants endurance, intelligence (for the problem solving), dexterity, will power and teamwork.

At the final Tribal Council, each of the seven jurors vote for who they want to be the winner. Jeff Probst takes the container with the votes, and it is secured until the live finale of the show when the votes are revealed and the million-dollar winner is announced.

Every player receives a stipend for participating on Survivor depending on how long they last in the game. The known prizes for All-Stars are as follows: 2nd = $250,000; 3rd = $125,000; 4th = $100,000. In most seasons, the runner-up receives $100,000, and third place wins $85,000.

The million-dollar winner also wins an automobile, as does the winner of a specific reward challenge in each season (excluding the first). All players also receive an additional $10,000 for their appearance on the reunion show.

From Kapamilya to Kapuso

For more than 2 years of watching Kapamilya ABS-CBN, we switched to Kapuso (GMA Pinoy TV) and found out that it offers a lot more than just the entertainment but a wholesome presentation of the news without much of the exagaration as opposite to what I observed from the Kapamilya Network.

I’m a Photographer, Not a…

A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to take pictures of a great forest fire. He was advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly him over the fire.

The photographer arrived at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Sure enough, a small Cessna airplane was waiting.

He jumped in with his equipment and shouted, “Let’s go!” The tense man sitting in the pilot’s seat swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air, though flying erratically.

“Fly over the north side of the fire,” said the photographer, “And make several low-level passes.

“Why?” asked the nervous pilot.

“Because I’m going to take pictures!” yelled the photographer. “I’m a photographer, and photographers take pictures!

“The pilot replied, “You mean you’re not the flight instructor?”

Maalala Mo pa Kaya

Heto ang KAPAYAPAAN na alam natin, noong wala pangKAUNLARAN…

Si Nanay ay nasa bahay pag-uwi namin galing sa paaralan; Walang mga bakod at gate ang magkakapit-bahay, kung meron, gumamela lang;

10 sentimos o diyes lang ang baon: singko sa umaga, singko sahapon; Merong free ang mga patpat ng ice drop: buko man o munggo.

Mataas ang paggalang sa mga guro at ang tawag sa kanila ayMaestro/a:

Di binibili ang tubig, pwedeng maki-inom sa di mo kakilala.

Malaking bagay na ang pumunta sa ilog para mag-picnic,o kaya sa tumana;

Grabe na ang kaso pag napatawag ka sa principal’s office o kaya malaking kahihiyan kapag bagsak ka sa exams;

Simple lang ang pangarap: makatapos, makapag-asawa, mapagtapos ang mga anak…

Pwedeng iwan ang sasakyan at ibilin sa hindi mo kakilala; wala namang lock ang mga jeep na Willy’s noon.

Mayroon kaming mga laruan na gawa namin at hindi binili:trak-trakan (gawa sa rosebowl ang katawan at darigold na maliit ang mga gulong, “sketeng” (scooter) na bearing na maingay ang mga gulong at de-sinkong pako para sa preno;patining na pinitpit na tansan lang na may 2 butas sa gitna para suotan ng sinulid (pwede pang makipag-lagutan);sumpak, pilatok, boca-boca, bora dor, atbp.

Di nakikialam ang mga matanda sa mga laro ng mga bata:kasi laro nga iyon.

Maraming usong laro at maraming kasali: laste, gagamba,turumpo, tatsing ng lata, pera namin ay kaha ng Philip Morris, Malboro, Champion (kahon-kahon yon!)

May dagta ang dulo ng tinting na hawak mo para makahuli tutubi, nandadakma ka ng palakang tetot, pero ingat ka sa palakang saging dahil sa kulugo;

The Burned Ears…

A guy burned two ears… so they were asking him at the hospital how it happened.

He said, ”I was ironing my clothing and the phone rang…so instead of the phone I picked up the iron and burned my ear…”

”But how the heck did you burn the other ear?” The doctor asked.

”How do you think I called you people?”
