I’m an Angry Birds fan!!! I do some occasional posts about Angry Birds here in my blog.

So when I read that Rovio and Angry Birds Space have reached a great milestone…

I was really amazed! Wow 100 million downloads!!!

And Rovio is also giving away some freebies so I immediately joined because composing a less than 140 character tweet is so easy…

Raven asked why I’m so excited so I told her about online promo and she joined and tweeted too

Its also fun to see other tweeps follow my tweet format

If I win this ?#angrybirds? promo I will give my ?#plushiepal? to [put name here] 🙂 read details here http://www.rovio.com/en/news/blog/1 …

The weekend passed by and we almost forgot about it 🙂

I just got an alert from  my twitter  interactions and mentions:

And so I checked Rovio’s blog and behold…

Yeyyyyyyyyyy! We won one Angry Birds Space Plushie each 😀

Rovio folks already contacted us and we are anxiously waiting for our Angry Birds Space Plushies!!!

Will do another post when the plushies arrive.

Thank you Rovio! Thank you Angry Birds Space!

Pacquiao vs Bradley: Ilemi TV, Sopcast, Justin TV


Update: 2012.06.10 1:10PM (GMT=8)
Bradley wins via split decision.

Manny “Pacman’ Pacquiao will be battling TimothyDesert StormBradley on June 9, 2012 (June 10 in Manila). The WBO Welterweight belt will be at stake and the match will be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Pacman is sporting a 54W-3D-2L (with 38 KO’s) card while Bradley is undefeated with 28W-0D-0L (with 12 KO).

For this boxing match I will be in Manila, Philippines like the Pacquiao Marquez, Pacquiao Mosley, Pacquiao Cotto and Pacquiao Margarito bouts.

If you have money to spare, try the nearest cinema in the mall near you. I saw some cinema posters (I believe in SM Malls) offering Pacquiao vs Bradley live screenings so why not try it. Some restaurants (like Sambokojin and Dad’s) offer Pacquiao vs Bradley screenings with eat all you can buffet too.

But for me, no free PLDT MyDSL Watchpad event with free pizza and drinks for me like in the Pacman Marquez, so it will be FREE TV or Online Diskarte time again hehehe 🙂

Disclaimer: I do not guarantee if the channels below will work. Some of them worked in the previous Pacman fights against Marquez, Mosley, Margarito, Cotto and Clottey. But I will try my best to update this one with available channels and links

Pacquiao vs Bradley Ilemi TV (Ilemi.TV)

Ilemi TV is a free streaming site. Ilemi have changing domain names. I remember before they were at Ilemi.me, then they moved to Ilemi.com and now they are Ilemi.tv.

This is for me the best option for Pacquiao vs Bradley: Ilemi, just remember and try their sites (go to ilemi.com or ilemi.me or www.ilemi.tv) or ilemi.eu and look for Pacquiao vs Bradley related channels

Pacquiao vs Bradley Sopcast

Sopcast is program that offers video streaming services. You have to download Sopcast client first and then know specific channels playing Pacquiao vs Bradley Sopcast. This worked on previous Pacquiao bouts but the issue we got last time is that Sopcast was heavily policed. The usual known Pacquiao and Boxing channels return error messages when I tried this week. But I will share if there will be available channels.

Pacquiao vs Bradley Justin.TV

Justin.TV is another favorite video streaming site whenever there are sporting events like Boxing.

Viewers need to go to Justin.TV website, and during mega-popular boxing bouts like Pacquiao vs Bradley, Justin.tv usually highlights that they are serving it live. But just like Sopcast, the problem we got with Justin.TV was it is heavily policed and channels streaming Pacquiao were either removed, or maxed out on the connection allowed. But Justin.TV is worth a try.

I will update this post if I have other choices.

Btw, I’m rooting for Manny Pacquiao!

Good luck to Pacman and to Team Pacquiao!!!

SMS Scam: This is my New Roaming Number – 2012 Edition


This is not a new sms scam. I originally posted about the similar sms spam and scam last October 2009. But I am amazed that scammers are still active so I am sharing it again as an awareness campaign to my friends and readers.

This one I got today:

Sender Number: +639065539031
Message:

Musta na kau dyan censya na ngayon lang ulit ako nakapagtxt busy plagi sa work.e2 na ang new roaming number ko d2 na kau magtxt .ingat mis u all

Rough english translation:

How are you? Sorry if I just texted you guys now, I’ve been busy with my work. This is my new roaming number so you guys should txt me here. Take Care! I miss you all!

How sweet! But sorry I don’t miss you Mr. or Ms. Scammer 🙂

This one I got last week:


Sender Number: +639272816530

Kmusta n kyo jn?nwala ang roaming ko eto n gmit ko ngayon dito n kau mgtxt pkisbe n lng s lhat jn,ingat kyo plge..txt bck..

Rough english translation:

How are you? Sorry I lost my roaming phone. This is my new roaming number so please tell all our folks there that you all should text me here. Take care always! Please text back!


To the scammer/s:
Nice try! But Sorry its epic fail sms spam scam for me 🙂

We know the drill, after getting your sympathy; they will ask you to send them mobile phone load (e-load) and maybe other business opportunities that will lead to a scam. Read more about it here

My advice to my friends: be paranoid. Don’t talk to strangers. Let them prove who they are before giving any other personal details.

14 years

I try and feel the sunshine
You bring the rain
You try and hold me down
With your complaints
You cry and moan and complain
You whine an tear
Up to my neck in sorrow
The touch you bring
You just don’t step inside to 14 years
So hard to keep my own head, that’s what I say
You know…I’ve been the beggar…
I’ve played the thief
I was the dog…they all tried to beat

But it’s been
Fourteen years of silence
It’s been
Fourteen years of pain
It’s been
Fourteen years that are gone forever
And I’ll never have again

Your st*pid girlfriends tell you
That I’m to blame
Well – they’re all used-up has-beens
Out of the game
This time I’ll have the last word
You hear what I say
I tried to see it your way
It won’t work today
You don’t just step inside to 14 years
So hard to keep my own head…that’s what I say
You know…I’ve been the dealer…hangin’ on your street
I was the dog…they all tried to beat

But it’s been
Fourteen years of silence
It’s been
Fourteen years of pain
It’s been
Fourteen years that are gone forever
And I’ll never have again

Bullsh*t and contemplation
Gossip’s their trade
If they knew half the real truth
What would they say
Well I’m past the point of concern
It’s time to play
These last four years of madness
Sure put me straight
You don’t get back fourteen years
In just one day
So hard to keep my own head
Just go away
You know…just like a hooker she said
Nothin’s for free
Oh I tried to see it your way
I tried to see it your way
