Cosmo 69 Bachelors 2012

Here are the 69 bachelors of Cosmopolitan Philippines. Although they lipsynch a boyband-ish song by One Direction, What Makes You Beautiful, you will be astounded how Filipino race can be so good when mixed with others. And of course, the ever exotic pure Filipino blood is just so… us! 😀

They are scheduled to release the magazine soon! I know you wouldn’t want to miss a copy!

By the way, too bad that I cannot watch the Bachelors’ Party as it is set on Sept 18 and I am bound for Manila on the 22! Oh the pains of working for other countries. Anyway, you can win tickets to the events! Read more on the picture below to know the terms and conditions.

What Happened to LGBT Rights Bill in the Philippines?

Just awhile ago, I posted about a House Bill passed in Congress and Senate regarding the Cybercrime bill in the Philippines. And now, after three hours of sleep, I shall write another politically-driven post.

LGBT Philippines

LGBT Philippines

This pertains to the LGBT Rights Bill. To date, two bills are both in reading by the two houses:

The Anti-Racial, Ethnic and Religious Discrimination Act of 2011 by the Lower House; and
The Anti-Ethnic, Racial Profiling and Discrimination Act of 2011 by the Senate.

Both of these bills do not include the sexual orientation and gender identification (SOGI) provisions in which Cong. Teddy Casiño, Bayan Muna representative, authored Anti-Discrimination Act of 2010.

United Nations Human Rights Council released a Landmark Report and Panel on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity last March 7, 2012. It was mentioned that human rights are equal. “Therefore,  that means, that everyone, gay, lesbian, transgender and heterosexuals, is entitled to the full range of all human rights, including the rights to life, to be free from arbitrary detention, to security of person and protection from torture”.

It is just a disappointment that the two houses are pushing the two former bills without including the equal rights to LGBT community. How can it be fair and just if another minority is not protected against these abuses?

Tito Sotto

Tito Sotto and Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012

You might have heard or read that Senator Tito Sotto is warning its critics that the The Philippine Cybercrime Bill, HB 5808, has been approved both houses and it is just currently waiting for the President’s signature for it to become a law.

Upholding Honor

What’s in it for me and you?

This is actually good because cybercrime that includes illegal use of network and computer resources, unsoliciated e-communications, hacking and cybersex. But comes with this is that people can sue you of libel from an online defamation, regardless of which media: blogging, social networking sites or anything transmitted electronically.

This is what the senator is pertaining when he claims that he is cyberbullied by my fellow netizens in relation with the alleged plagiarism during one of his privilege speeches in regards to the RH Bill.

Below is the full transcript of the 3rd reading from the House of Congress.

HB 5808 Cyber Crime_ 3rd Rdg.

Disclaimer: I am not legally capable to discuss the bill is about and this is plainly based on my mere understanding using my English comprehension. If you find my opinions contradicting, please consult a legal adviser.

Henry Cook at SS2 Mall

Recently, I have been roaming around the city looking for new restaurants to dine in before work. I have been on strict diet for the past few months and I could take some gastronomic indulge once in a while.

And so I arrived at SS2 Mall – convenient, because around the mall and even the covered parking are free of charge. Except the valet service which is ridiculously high at 6 RM! There’s not much people here as the mall is new. Its Marketing staff needs to pump up some events here or else the possible near-residential-convenient-shopping place will die soon.

Henry Cook is located at the Lower Ground of the mall near the restaurants adjacent to the shopping kiosks. As you walk around the paved area, you will not miss it because it has one of the striking interiors viewable from the outside.

Chili and Kitchen

Majority of the food crew are Filipinos so it is not really hard for me to converse and take my orders :D. Although when you are inside, just be cautious on how you would smell. They have an open kitchen in an air conditioned room. I stayed there for more than an hour but it really didn’t affect the smell of my clothes. Though this is just an assumption, that when they’re fully packed, I bet that the smell from the food might stick to your shirt.

Lamps and Post Its

The room is lit with hard tungsten lighting and most of the furniture are from Ikea. I actually didn’t think that when you combine Ikea products in one place, they’d actually look good! Magazines are near the couches and some playing cards are placed on the steel shelves.

Now to the food.

Chicken Kebab and Yellow Fragrant Rice

They have mainly beef and chicken on the menu. The sauce has a distinct Turkish/Persian feel that I have never tried with other restaurants before. The meat goes well with it! Also, the chili is not the typical chili that you could find in Malaysian restaurants. I actually liked it!

Henry Cook

Chicken Roll and Potatoes

What surprised me is that this dish comes with green salad underneath the chicken roll and yet, it is also served with cucumber, red beans and some cold mayo dressing. I just though it is too much for someone who is expecting that he would be eating an omnivorous meal. Nevertheless, the meat is good. Maybe, if I chose the fragrant rice, it would have been better. Not that I am saying that the potato isn’t good, it is just too vegetarian when combined with the green and cucumber salads.

Henry Cook

Chocolate Fudge with Vanilla Ice Cream

But of course, the dessert. Sadly, the chocolate fudge wasn’t nice. It was warm when it was served, which is supposedly be warm. Its just that the cake was too dry. It could have been inside the fridge nearing its shelf life. I always look forward for desserts, you know. The two main dishes were okay especially the kebab sauce but it just failed on the dessert. Maybe next time, it will be better.

Take Your Pick

These words on the wall, in any interior design, will always be catchy and they were! What would you think when you come across such words?

By the way, budget is from 20 to 30 RM per person.
