Wrestling Mania

I used to watch a lot of wrestling with my siblings and cousins when I was younger. My favorite event was the Royal Rumble Match. We’d all shout and get excited seeing our favorites. My cousins and I would turn into total fangirls whenever we see Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels appearing, they were pretty good looking back in the day, very sexy and had overflowing charisma. Good times! My cousin Weng even changed her name to Owen because of Owen Hart (Bret’s brother). I stopped watching when I learned it’s all scripted and fake. Did you like wrestling too? Who are you favorites? Anyway, here’s my top 5 wrestlers of all time:

1. Hulk Hogan
2. Bret Hart
3. Shawn Michaels
4. Batista
5. The Rock

My least favorites are The Undertaker and Yokozuna. They’re very scary back then esp. the Undertaker.

Machu Picchu

When I was a kid, I spent most of my afternoon watching Shaider (and Bioman) with my friends in the Barrio. I don’t know if some of you remember Shaider and his sexy partner Annie but the memories of this show is still clear to me up to this day. FYI, the show was aired in the early years of the 80’s.

Just to give everyone a heads up, the story evolved around Alexis and his mission to save the Earth. He’s an archeologist who deciphered the geometrical figures (a bird figure) on the Nazca Plain in Peru. That figure is actually the symbol of the Galactic Union Police. When GUP heard Alexis’ discovery, they recruited and trained him to be Earth’s Space Sheriff, and was given the code name ‘Shaider’ (in memory of an ancient warrior who defeated the Fuuma Empire). When the Fuuma Empire learned the new ‘Shaider’, they plotted to annihilate him in order to conquer Earth once again.

I think this is where my fascination to anything ancient, cryptic and mind-puzzling stuff started. Hay, I love to visit Peru and get an exciting Machu Picchu travel,  with side trips to the Nazca Lines, Sacred Valley of the Incas and Cusco. I don’t know how and when, but I’m pretty positive that it will  happen someday hehe.

Gtg. Will check if youtube got reruns of Shaider. See yah!

Missing High School

Look what I found while fixing some stuff on my closet – my high school class picture! Geez, it’s been 11 years. I’ve lost contact with some of them after graduation. I miss them so much. Years ago, our only means of communication was through landline phones and snail mails. In this highly digital world, it’s very different. These days, you can use email, cellphone, chat programs and social networking sites such as 3gb to get in touch with your long lost friends.

If you wanna meet new friends old friends and hopefully expand your channel, check out 3GB community! You can also upload your photos albums, join different groups, blog, listen to mp3 and chat with other members.

Ok, back to HS life, I’ve recently come across with one of my high school classmates in a popular social networking site. It’s been ages since we last talk and I’m amazed how she managed to stay fit after all these years. She’s happy being a stay-at-home mom with his loving husband, which, by the way, was also a high school classmate, and 3 lovely kids. We talked about the things we’ve done before. I couldn’t help smiling whenever I remember my naiveness and innocence. My HS life was a little boring, but most of the time exciting and really memorable. When I look back at the past, it reminds me of the many chances I’ve let go and many wonderful things I dare not see and enjoy because I was shy and was never assured that I can do a lot more than what I can. At 20++, I finally see that it’s just the way HS life should be. A time in our lives that we can never truly repeat. A time that shapes us. A time that makes us who we are, for years to come.

Reminiscing the Old Days

What was the first trophy you ever had in your life? Mine? It was from a SCRABBLE CONTEST I won way way back. How weird is that, huh? Another was a trophy I got from winning a quiz bee back in grade school and the last one was from winning the school’s declamation contest. You see, back in the old days, I was very active joining in school’s activities but I wasn’t sporty, in fact, I hate PE classes. I never thought of joining the varsity whatsoever and never really like Sports that much except swimming. So when our school varsity team bagged volletyball, basketball and soccer trophies on inter-school sports events, I got really jealous because the team were given high school scholarship from a private school. Too bad, they don’t offer scholarships to scrabble grand masters! It was ‘sayang’, really.
