No Trick or Treating at Bruce Springsteen’s Mansion

Bruce Springsteen is from New Jersey. Kids will miss the Halloween display at his house in Rumson, New Jersey this year. If you go to his website, you will read this message:

neighborhood to handle) and concern for the safety of kids and parents! we won't
be having our usual Halloween display this year in Rumson.We wish everyone a
safe and Happy Halloween!

Thanks,Bruce and Patti

Super Super Bargain

I bought this vest for $4.99 at old navy. It was 50% off plus another 75% off. I am a bargain shopper. I don’t buy regular priced items for clothes unless it’s something I need badly. Wait for a few weeks and they will go on sale.


Ugly Out

I took this picture around 9:30 a.m. today. It seems like it’s 5:00 in the morning. The offices have still their lights on. It has been windy since last night and rainy this morning. I don’t think we ever see the sun today. It’s cold but this is a lot better than snow.

Santa Got Fired then Rehired

I have been following this story/news about a certain mall Santa Claus who lost his job then got it back.

Here’s how the story goes:Michael Graham, a 51 year old carpenter who is from Tennessee has been working as a Christmas Santa for 18 years at Tysons Corner Mall in Fairfax County, Virginia. Every November, he would close his carpentry business; pack his 3 red suits and a pair of black boots to Virginia for the Christmas season. This year turned out to be something different. Tysons decided to terminate his services although he has a contract until 2012. Santa earns at least $30,000 per Christmas season but he is responsible for his suits and boots. This Santa has real beard with a real beer belly. He wants to file legal action against his former employer. The mall did not give any reason for his termination but they had replaced him with a new company that will provide photo services. Because of this, they got hundreds of phone calls, emails and threats to boycott the mall. This le…

Linens ‘n Things is Going Out of Business

LNT has failed to find a buyer for the company after they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last May. Liquidation already started last Thursday. This company employs around 17,500 people and was one of the largest purchasers of home furnishings in the U.S. as of dec. 31 but the sharp decline in the housing market has probably affected their business. I already say a “going out of business” sign at one of their branches here and also on their website.

Morning Banana Diet-New Japanese Diet

I have read from time.com about the new diet craze in Japan called Morning Banana Diet. Here is how the diet goes: Eat as many bananas as you want and room temperature water for breakfast. You can eat anything you want for lunch & dinner plus an optional snack by 3 pm (optional). Dinner has to be eaten by 8p.m., no desserts after meals and you have to be in bed before midnight. Sounds easy, right? Because of this diet, Japan is having a banana shortage. Supermarkets can hardly keep up with the demand even if Dole Japan has already increased their imports of bananas for the past 4 months but still stores are always running out. Philippines is one of the biggest exporters of bananas to Japan for the last 40 years.

This Morning Banana Diet was created by Sumiko Watanabe, a pharmacist, who wants her husband to lose weight by increasing his metabolism and he did lost 37 pounds. It became popular in Japan that people started doing it too. Morning Diet books have been published with 730,…

Rihanna and Chris Brown live in Manila

Chris Brown and Rihanna will be performing live in the Philippines this coming November 16 at the Bonifacio Global City Open Field. Discounted ticket prices will be given away/sold for early patrons by Globe and MTV Philippines from October 15 to 31st. Here are the discounted ticket prices:

Gold tickets from P5,000 to P3,000
Silver tickets from P3,000 to P1500

My favorite from Chris Brown is “With You”….i need you boo, (oh) I gotta see you boo (hey) and there’s hearts all over the world tonight, said the hearts all over the world tonight…”
Chorus: ..oh! I’m into you, and girl, no one else would, ‘cause with every kiss and every hug, you make me fall in love, and now I know I can’t be the only one, I bet there’s hearts all over the world tonight, with the love of their life who feels…what I feel when I’m WITH YOU..’ aww! Sweet!!!

And who can forget …”you can stand under my umbrella (2x) ella, ella, eh eh eh…”




The Volkswagen Tiguan

First time I saw this cute SUV was at the New York Auto Show last April. I like it. It’s now out in the market but hasn’t seen one on the road yet. If you are wondering what Tiguan means, it’s a combination of Tiger and Iguana. How about a VW rabbit or beetle? The golf? And their new minivan Routan – like “route” + (v)an”…geez, what‘s in a name?

Back to the tiguan, the new VW baby. The big factor that attracts me to his compact SUV is that it is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder 16 valve engine. The only SUV that is not a V6 – a lot more gas savings. Tiguan comes standard with power windows, power locks, cruise control, four 12- volt power points, an auxiliary jack for mp3 or ipod and an electronic parking brake plus other options available. Hmmm, sounds good to me. If I decide to switch to an SUV, she will be the one.

The New Britney Spears

At last she woke up from deep sleep or nightmare!

I guess she is back in shape now. But if you are wondering what happened to her in the past two or three years, she has a 90 minute interview that will be aired on MTV on Nov 30, two days before the release of her new album. She wants to set the record straight – making the title Britney: For the Record. Her new album entitled “Circus” will be released on Dec.2, her 27th birthday.

Calling Jollibee to New Jersey

Last night while watching TFC i saw a commercial of Jollibee promoting the opening of at least 4 new stores in CA with Sarah Geronimo as special guest. Jollibee in California is almost every where. Kelan naman kaya sa New Jersey? I miss the chicken joy, palabok, peach mango pie, etc. etc. We only have red ribbon here eh di ba according to my radar, RR and Jollibee belong to the same company. Correct me if I'm wrong. Calling Mr. Aga, we always see you at your Jollibee commercials but don't just keep us drooling, ok? Hope I win a lottery so that I'll get a Jollibee franchise right on my street. LOL!



New Tattoos for Angelina Jolie

When Angelina attended the premiere night of her new movie “Changeling”, she was spotted with new tattoos on her left arm. The addition to her tattoo collections were birthplaces of her latest additions to the family, meaning in honor of her new twins Viviene Marcheline and Knox Leon. Angelina and Brad have six kids now namely: Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shilo and the twins.

Date with Sharapova for $10,000; will the new BF be jealous?

A lucky guy won a date with Maria Sharapova with a tag of $10,000. Do you think that is a bargain for a highest paid athlete like Maria? I think that is below the market value. She did it for the Bryan Brothers’ All Star Tennis Smash Charity event last week. Maria told the winning guy, “My boyfriend will outbid you.”
Who is the BF then? Rumor spreading around that this lucky guy is the 25 year old Charlie Ebersol, the son of NBC Sports Chairman and President Dick Ebersol. Could he be the luckiest guy among the many suitors?
Last year, Maria Sharapova earned $23 million making her the world’s highest paid female athlete. She was not in action at the US Open and recently announced on her website that she is off for the season. She is still rehabilitating from an injury earlier this year. Hope we see her back at the Australian Open next year where she is the defending champion.
