Episode 166 – Friday, July 7th, 2017 (7493)

5-10-15-20 new1

It’s already halfway through of 2017, but until now I’m still looking for happiness because of many struggles happened during the first half of this year. I thought this year would be my best and happiest year, but after all happiest moments happened during the first two months of 2017, what happened next? Evil distractions strike my current life again! Oh no! I became unhappy and bored because I lost a job, not once but twice, and my desire to text or to chat with somebody. Boredom has been there again after having (short-lived) happiness at the start of 2017. Gosh!

But anyway, last January, I published an episode about the things and events happened in my life 5, 10, 15 and 20 years ago. And now, it’s already July and entering the second half of 2017. I will discuss about the same with slight differences compared to what I had done during the first half. To clarify, all these events, including the technology and gadgets that I had, movies that released during that year, music, and hit TV series, happened within the second half in the past 5, 10, 15 and 20 years.

Episode 165 – Sunday, June 25th, 2017 (7481)

two

How time flies! It has been two years where my life is filled with blessings and grateful moments. But in other side, it has also been two years that I became bored, depressed, and my life is filled with distractions, disasters, and restless struggles.

But I’m so glad for this moment because I have been writing my journal (this blog) for two years. I can’t believe that I already wrote more than 160 episodes in the past two years! I think I can compile all of my past episodes into a book (or probably about two or three books) about the happenings around my life and its surroundings. I still remember about my first ever episode published on June 24, 2015 where I shared about the relocation of the Feast of Bro. Andreus “Dreus” Cosio from Central Mall Biñan to SM City Santa Rosa and my trip to Bataan with my… well I’ll discuss it later! Hehehe! Continue reading

Watching NBA Finals

Earlier today (Philippine time), I watched the Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals between defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors. Although I didn’t watch the whole game (I didn’t know why but feel some restless), I found out that the Warriors led in the 4th quarter and in the end, they won the game 129-120 over the Cavaliers to end the series, 4 games to 1. Kevin Durant, coming from his former team, Oklahoma City Thunder during offseason, was awarded as Finals Most Valuable Player, and it was his first ever NBA title for his 10th season. This is the third straight time that these two great teams meet in the Finals where the Warriors won in 2015 while the Cavaliers regained to win their first ever championship after coming back from 3-1 deficit.

Choking Curse Strikes Again!

Episode 129 – Thursday, February 9th, 2017 (7345)

Last Monday, I was able to watch Super Bowl LI of National Football League (NFL) between New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons thru internet live streaming. I just came at the office late, and I only watched the halftime show where Lady Gaga did her solo superb performance. Right after halftime, the Falcons led 21-3, and I thought that they would go to win their first ever Super Bowl championship. But things made worse once again. Trailing by 28-3 in the middle of third quarter, the Patriots made their historic and unbelievable comeback when they scored 25 straight points including two 2-point conversions after touchdown to force overtime which was the first time in the history of Super Bowl. I didn’t finish watching the match because the live streaming was buffering, and I felt shocked because I wanted the Falcons to win the championship rather than the Patriots who had been a 4-time Super Bowl Champs. When I checked at ESPN.com, I showed that the Patriots already won the match over the Falcons, 34-28, to capture their fifth Super Bowl championship. Pareng Tom Brady, nakararami ka na ah? Hahaha!

My 2016 Yearend Review: Droughts and Comebacks

Episode 115 – Wednesday, December 28th, 2016 (7302)

2016-sports

I’ve witnessed the sporting events that gave the team into success. Thanks to the powerful internet live streaming, I was able to watch live sports most especially from the professional leagues in North America (particularly United States) such as the National Football League (NFL – American Football), the Major League Baseball (MLB), and my all-time favorite, the National Basketball Association (NBA). Throughout this year, I had watched some significant match-ups such as NBA Playoffs, NBA Finals, NFL regular season games, and the World Series of MLB thru live streaming. I loved to watch sports, and these caused me to ease my boredom from work while being idle or feeling some frustration especially my loveless life, so that I really enjoyed watching these games live (and I loved U.S. commercials too) straight from the computer (rather than TV set).

But this year, I witnessed the biggest and most shocking sporting events that I ever watched either thru live TV or internet streaming. In this episode, I just want to have flashback about the happenings in the world of sports this 2016. Continue reading

End of Drought… But When?

Episode 102 – Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 (7247)

Fissure

Just earlier today (at my work), I was able to watch Game 7 of 2016 World Series (of Major League Baseball) where the Chicago Cubs finally won a World Series champion over Cleveland Indians four games to three to end their long, long championship drought after 108 years (their last won in 1908). They came back from 1-3 deficit to win a World Series title which has been only their club’s third championship and first since 1908 (I don’t know how many people in this world who born before 1908 are still alive until now), ending the Curse of the Billy Goat that was existed since 1945 (Cubs’ final World Series appearance until this year). And for Indians (the Tribe), well, they continue their championship drought after winning their last World Series title in 1948, but that’s okay for the City of Cleveland because last June, the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA, led by Finals MVP and Northeast Ohio native, LeBron “King” James, ended the city’s sports curse of 52 long years (since Browns winning NFL championship in 1964) after winning an NBA title over 73-win Golden State (not Golden City where I live there) Warriors in the best-of-seven finals (they also came back from 1-3 deficit to win the series).

NBA: Finals-Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors

Almost three weeks ago, I was able to watch NBA Finals (thru internet live streaming) between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the defending champion, Golden State Warriors. It was thrilled to watch especially in Game 7 where the Cavaliers (Cavs, for short) escaped the Warriors to win its first NBA title in franchise history, and it was historical for Cavs because of their incredible comeback from 1-3 deficit to win a best-of-7 championship series (the first to do so in the NBA Finals history). I felt so happy for them because they’re not only clutching their first NBA title since entering the league in 1970 but also ending the 52-year championship drought for the city of Cleveland after NFL’s Browns won the championship in 1964. Cleveland is now no longer a sports curse city. Continue reading

Watching Super Bowl 50 and NBA All-Star Weekend

Episode 49 – Monday, February 29th, 2016 (6999)

Every weekend nights, I’m so bored to stay at home (isolated at my “refuge” bedroom) and to close my both ears and to hear my favorite music (mostly worship songs that are played at The Feast every Sunday). I hate to watch TV every weekend (especially at night right after basketball games) because my family likes to watch from the “Heart” Network which most of their programs are really non-sense and not in High-Definition (HD, or 16:9 picture format). That’s why I don’t watch with my family because I don’t like what they watch especially there are most of the times, every Sunday evening, when the “bragged” network features about AlDub and the scenes from Kalyeserye where my mother is so addicted to become a vivid fan of this non-sense thing! Gosh! Continue reading
