I don\’t understand why Google Adsense shows up some t0y ads in my blog. Eeerrr.. I\’m not writing anything about t0ys anyway. I only wrote something about Parokya ni Edgar\’s cover that resembles S3s4me Str3et… W00t!

Tropical Hut… After A Decade

I can safely say that my last dining in Tropical Hut Burgers was a decade ago… yeah, that should be quite \”accurate\” because I\’m still a youngster back then, and the only Tropical Hut branch I knew was the Alabang Branch in front of Muntinlupa public market. During that time, I come with my mother to the public market to carry stuffs; she treats in Tropical Hut later. That\’s my faint memory of the old Tropical Hut… of course I have already forgotten the taste of their burgers so I cannot make comparison between the old and new taste.

I\’m just glad that I dinned in to Tropical Hut again; I was not disappointed with their burgers. The taste is just right. What really surprised me is the stricking similarities of their chicken to Mcdo; and their french fries to Pizza Hut in terms of taste and preparation.

Anyway, the reason why I ate there is because of my friends. We had our late dinner break in Tropical Hut. Somebody suggested to eat there, and so we did. :)

My 18.6 Million US Dollars Share


I am Mr. Smith Bowani, an auditor of a reputable bank in Johannesburg, Gauteng Province in the Republic of South Africa. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

We had a foreign client named Mr. Wooin Shim, who deposited a huge sum of money (18.6 Million United States Dollars), with our bank. Eventually, this client died in a plane crash and since his death we have not had anybody come up for the claims as the next of kin.

You may want to take a look at other passengers, who were on the same plane; here is a site for your perusal. http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9708/06/guam.passenger.list/

A situation I have monitored closely with my position in the bank. Now having monitored this deposit and managed it over the years before his death, and hence nobody has showed up as the next of kin for the past years. I now solicit for your assistance to present you as the next of kin as every other arrangement/ processes will be monitored by me and my partners involved. However I got your contact from a trade consultant here in South Africa, though I did not disclose the purpose of my seeking for a foreign business partner to him. Although we will still have to sign some agreement before the final transfer of the fund into any of your designated bank account.

I have involved a very senior official in the operational department, and we have agreed that after the transfer of the money into your account, you shall be entitled to 20% of the total sum, my colleagues and I will have 75% while 5% will be used to reimburse any expenses incurred. All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure a risk free situation on the side of both parties. Please note that this deal can only take place on the following conditions;

1. Absolute confidentiality and sincerity will be required and guaranteed, considering our positions in the bank.

2. Assurance that our own share will be released to us in good faith when this money finally gets into your account.

Please treat with utmost confidentiality. Contact me as quickly as possible through my e-mail.

Expecting your urgent response,

Best Regards,


Yeah right. I\’ve seen this kind of scams somewhere. It is quite amusing that someone in South Africa knows me. At that point I know that this email is pulling my legs. :mrgreen:

These smilies…

:mrgreen::neutral::twisted::arrow::shock::smile: :???: :cool::evil::grin::idea::oops::razz::roll::wink::cry::eek::lol::mad::sad::!::?:

Haha… a phletora of smilies there… These smilies are the default smilies included in Phpbb. This 15 x 15 pixels smilies pack is one of the most aesthetic mini emoticons you can find in the web.

Since I used Invision Power Board I left these smilies in my storage folder. I miss this smilies. Luckily these smilies are the default smilies included in WordPress package.

IPB uses the nomicon smilies made by Nominell (Oscar Gruno). Although I like the IPB smilies I have no permission to use it outside IPB forums so at this moment I\’m still using the default smilies. Perhaps I\’ll use these smilies permanently because the Phpbb smilies are smaller in size; thus, I find them more appropriate to use in my journal.

Updated 2010-01-02T01:36:41+00:00
As of now most of the original smilies are not working anymore and I might be replacing them soon, too. I was fond of these smilies but I realized that I need to minimize their use so that my posts won\’t be as cheesy and as informal as they were before.
