I am an Experienced Driver

I am an 'experienced driver'. What do I mean by this statement? I also call this day, October 30 as the fifth anniversary of being an 'experienced driver'. Yes today, I am celebrating my 5th Anniversary for being such. Why? why? and why? I don't want to tell coz I feel ashamed.. hehehe

Five years ago I was driving (my father's) motor bike, later we share the same bike because he used 4 wheel most of the time, so I am using the two-wheel. A Yamaha DT, color red and some few sticker designs and some cool stuffs decorated. I am a motor enthusiast (I was) and I drive a little fast and I can put my speed at the highest depending on the motor's speed limit. I don't drag race but I race with many motorist in the highway. Although I must admit that I drive very proud and confident, though I am not a really a big guy, I am pretty sure that I drive with extra care and with total vigilance and of course watchful eyes.

On that day, an unexpected private Jeep made a quick U turn with out making a signal. With my super speed, the brake won't catch the distance and I hit his bumper and broke my leg, my right leg and disabled me to walk for about half a year or more. I was rushed to the hospital. I thought I'd be losing my leg but it was fixed.

The experience that I had made me realize that maybe I was too proud or over confident in driving. Maybe it was a lesson for me to drive slower. Five years had already passed now and somehow, the memory of that incident is slowly vanishing. I mean the trauma is vanishing but the memory will always be there until I die.

Sorry no photographs available.

Barack Hussein Obama

I don't give a packing sheet about US politics since I am not an American in the first place. At this moment when the US election is fast approaching, the intensity of political campaigns have been raised by these two US presidential candidates. Statistics count that Obama is in lead and most probably will win in the US president's chair.

Who is Barack Hussein Obama?
Barack Hussein Obama II (pronounced /bəˈrɑːk hʊˈseɪn oʊˈbɑːmə/; born August 4, 1961) born in Honolulu Hawaii, USA, is the junior United States Senator from Illinois and presidential nominee of the Democratic Party in the 2008 United States presidential election.

Obama is the first African American to be nominated by a major political party for president.[1] A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served as president of the Harvard Law Review, Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003. After a primary victory in March 2004, Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He was elected to the Senate in November 2004 with 70 percent of the vote.


As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, he helped create legislation to control conventional weapons and to promote greater public accountability in the use of federal funds. He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the 110th Congress, he helped create legislation regarding lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel. Obama announced his presidential campaign in February 2007, and was formally nominated at the 2008 Democratic National Convention with Delaware senator Joe Biden as his running mate.

He is a member of Illinois State from the 13th district and running under Democratic party VS his opponent McCain as Republican. His wife Michelle with their two daughters Malia Ann and Natasha. They live in Kenwood, Chicago, Illinois. Obama is a lawyer by profession and a politician at the same time. His religion is United Church of Christ.

Why I posted this? I really don't have political inclination and I am not even knowledgeable in our local politics counting that I also am not involving myself in school's student government ie. not giving votes or any participation to student government. I just want to tell others that I am disappointed to many politicians who are totally.......... never mind... I am not promoting him neither his counter part John McCain coz both are...never mind... Thanks to all....

Bit Defender Anti Virus

A friend suggested to me that I need to have a new post on my blog and he suggested that I should feature about the anti virus I am now using with my impressions and my satisfactions regarding my anti virus. Some months ago, I am not sure what anti virus to use. I have Norton, AVG, PC-cilllin and many others. Just recently, another friend of mine asked me to rate something on his poll. The poll was asking: What do you think is the best anti-virus? unfortunately I was not able to follow up the poll result becuase he deleted or renamed his url blog - I am not sure what happened.

Prior to answering his poll, he asked me personally, what anti virus I am presently using? I said, Avira because it was free and suggested by another friend. So he asked me to try BitDefender. I asked "why?" "try and see!" was his answer. So I did tried BitDefender.

BitDefender is an antivirus software suite developed by Bucharest-based software company SOFTWIN. It was launched in November 2001,[1] and is currently in its eleventh version. BitDefender replaced SOFTWIN's earlier AVX (AntiVirus eXpert) product range. The BitDefender group spins off from SOFTWIN in 2007. The BitDefender range includes antivirus products for home users, businesses, enterprise users and Internet service providers. Home editions support Microsoft Windows, Symbian OS, Windows Mobile and Mac OS X (Beta); business and enterprise editions support Microsoft Windows, Linux and FreeBSD. The current version of the Home/Home Office security suite includes antivirus, anti-spyware, firewall, e-mail spam filtering, backup, tune-up and parental control components. A free basic online scan is offered via the BitDefender website.

Reviews for BitDefender have been largely positive, and the home version of the suite was given the PC Answers editor's choice award in a comparative review in May 2007. As of June 2007, BitDefender has passed Virus Bulletin's VB100 independent tests 14 times out of 18 since first tested in 2002. It has also achieved an advanced certification from AV Comparatives for on-demand scanning, and standard level certification for catching unknown viruses, though was criticised for its slower scanning speed and higher instances of false positives. It is also the least expensive option from the top three antivirus solutions, as ranked by PC World.

Older versions of BitDefender are made available for free download when newer versions are released. The first version which was made freely available was version 8. As of November 2007, version 10 of BitDefender is freely available for download. Unlike the commercial version, the free version only offers an on-demand virus scan, and doesn't provide real time scanning, and may therefore, be less suitable for machines with continuous connection to the internet.

A Strange Astrological Rumor

A Just a few minutes ago, I received a text message saying that there will be an extraordinary phenomena that will occur on October 17, 2008, a continuous darkess for one and a half days. That is about 36 hours. This is the exact text message I recieved:

"This coming October 17, 2008 the sun will rise continuously for  36hrs (1.5days). During this time the American Countries will be dark for 1.5days. It will convert 3days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2400 years. We're very lucky to see this. This s a global phenomenon...

Courtesy of CNN/BBC NEWS.

Mark ur calendars now n pass 2 rlativs n frens..."

After recieving this text message, I immediately made a quick research in the internet and found out this is hoax! "This rumor appears to have come from India, so it means to say that the sun will rise for 36 hours over India, and the Americas..." more details here. Probably you will be recieving the same text message or email in the near future or had already been sent to you. So if ever you receive this message, you may ignore it. I personally would say that this is truly hoax. Thanks and God bless!

PS: there are funny comments on the link I provided. :)

Heroes - my Favorite

Heroes Season 3 or Volume 3 had already been aired in NBC premiered last September 22, 2008. This TV series is my favorite TV show above all list. I like it very much because it enables my imagination to play like a kid thinking about super natural powers childlikely. Since the start during when I have discovered this and watched the first season/volume until season 2 in DVD, I watch it uncontrolably straight and almost without a break. Watch it like a movie marathon and it doesn't tire me. :) 

Heroes Season 3 is now aired weekly on Mondays. Now I have made short summary per episode (see I'm really a great fan for this) on my other blog. It can be read here. I don't watch it on NBC instead I download it from some sites http://thecoolwebsite.co.uk once every episode. I also download weekly because they upload it weekly since it is aired weekly.

For download details please ask me.

One of my Favorite Song

One of ny favorite song is sung by Kenny Rogers and Anne Murray entitled: If I Ever Fall In Love Again...

I remember in my younger days listening to this song. I don't even understand what it meant but I really like its tune and melody. I think, if my memory is working well, I started to hear this song when I was about six or seven years old. It was a long way ago and still this song remains my favorite even until now. Though I have many other more favorites, this one is one of those. This song I think will never die for this is written with true sincerity of heart by its author, maybe Kenny Rogers himself. It is also created with perfect talent of music unlike the music in this modern times. I could say full of crap!

Thank you for listening to my favorite song. I also thank the person who uploaded this video to youtube.com.



You,I know you're everything
That I've been looking for
And I,I look into your eyes
And could not ask for more.

So, it's only fair to lay it on the line
Hold on, I'm gonna need a little time.
But if I ever fall in love again
Sometimes when this broken heart can mend
I know it's gonna be with you
You're the one to pull me through
Though I don't know when
If I ever fall in love again.

Scared, I guess I'm scared to fly
It's such a long way down
And yet, if you'd just trust in me
I'm sure I'll come around.

And I know when you're hurt
It's hard to let someone inside
In your arms I feel I'm ready now to try.

So,if I ever fall in love again
Sometimes when this broken heart can mend
I know it's gonna be with you
You're the one to pull me through
Though I don't know when
If I ever fall in love again.

I'd be a fool to ever let you go
You're the best thing in my life
When I know I gotta take it slow.

Transformers

Yesterday, I downloaded a movie from some movie sharing sites in the internet. Movies can be downloaded in http://thecoolwebsite.co.uk. Immediately after the download was complete, I, together with my brother, sister and niece watch the movie Transformer. I did have fun wtching it because it was so cool.

Transformers is a 2007 live-action film adaptation of the Transformers franchise, directed by Michael Bay and written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. It stars Shia LaBeouf as Sam Witwicky, a teenager involved in a war between the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, two factions of alien robots who can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery. The Decepticons desire control of the All Spark, the object that created their robotic race, with the intention of using it to build an army by giving life to the machines of Earth. Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson,Jon Voight and John Turturro also star, while Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving provide the voices ofOptimus Prime and Megatron respectively. Photo taken from http://weblog.404creative.com

Producers Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto developed the project in 2003, with a treatment written by DeSanto. Executive producer Steven Spielberg came on board the following year, and hired Orci, Kurtzman and Bay for the project in 2005. The filmmakers wanted a realistic depiction of the story, and created a complex design aesthetic for the robots to stress their alien nature. The computer-generated characters were programmed to have thousands of mechanical pieces move as they transformed and maneuvered. The United States Military and General Motors lent vehicles and aircraft during filming, which saved money for the production and added realism to the battle scenes.
Hasbro organized an enormous promotional campaign for the film, making deals with hundreds of companies. This advertising blitz included a viral marketing campaign, coordinated releases of Transformers prequel comics books, Transformers toys and books, as well as product placement deals with GM and eBay. The film was a box office success despite mixed fan reaction to the radical redesigns of the characters, and reviews criticizing the focus on the humans at the expense of the robots. It is the thirtieth most successful film released and the fifth most successful of 2007, grossing approximately US$708 million worldwide. The film won four awards from the Visual Effects Society and was nominated for three Academy Awards. It revitalized media interest in the franchise, and a sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is expected for release on June 26, 2009.
