Survivor: The Cook Islands Edition


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.

GMA Pinoy TV is just QR. 89.00 every month and it comes with the Orbit Cable. The following are also included: Animal Planet, Hollywood, CNN, MBC 2,3 and 4, NBA, Fashion TV and a lot more.

Busy Bees!

Just finished watching the 1st Season of Desperate Housewives, Yup! I got addicted to these tv series, to name a few… Smallville, Prison Break, 24, Lost, not to mention Family Guy.

Days are so swift, to the point that I sometimes don’t know which day it is alreasy. As I mentioned in my last blog entry I don’t have a maid anymore, so that’s it. Everyday is a hectic day. My whole day is not enough for my toddler who’s nearing three and my 9 mos. old baby.

It occurred to me lately that I gained again the weight that I lost on the first week that I returned our maid, which means that I easily adapted to this endless juggling of houseworks and keeping my sanity intact for the moment that my kids are still like cavemen (when will this end?).

Friends kept on asking me if I can make it. Don’t insult my capacity of course I can do it but the sad part is I became so damned impatient and easily irritated. I feel sorry for my toddler I quickly snap on her everytime she makes demands and attention. And I feel bad about this. I don’t want to be a monster mom to my kids but sometimes I just can’t help but to snap at them or worst spank her. I know, I told myself tht I won’t resort to spanking and yelling but what happened to me. I guess it’s not too late I can still change my parenting style.

I love my kids and I want them to feel my love for them.

weekend treat”)

We went to City Center to catch up with some friends and it’s the birthday of Princess godfather; had a dinner at Applebee’s and headed to the movie theater to watch War of the Worlds…Yes! for the first time we let our 21 months old daughter to watch a movie, yon nga lang sci-fi pa at hindi cartoons. Buti na lang hindi sya umiyak and she let daddy Nath to carry and hug her and sometimes sat beside ate jelay or transfer to me again. Natapos din namin yong movie pero parang bitin yong ending and how come that Tom Cruise was able to use a car while yong other cars di umaandar? Parang may kulang but the effects were great. In a scale of 10, i’ll rate it with 8.
