Wishing Upon Phosphenes...

Do you ever wonder what is that light entering your sight even if you close your eyes?

That's some kind of light too, and it's called PHOSPHENE...

Wikipedia defines phosphenes as:

A phenomenon characterized by the experience of seeing light actually entering the eye. The word Phosphene comes from the Greek word phos (light) and phainein (to show). Phosphenes are flashes of light, induced by movement or sound. 

The next time you close your eyes to daydream, what may be in your mind is your crush or someone special to you, but what you really see, as entering into your eyes is called phosphenes. 

Now you know...

Mouthgasmic Max's in SM City Gensan

When I was listening to Chico and Delamar last Wednesday, I heard Chico say this word: Mouthgasmic, which means very very good you'll find yourself in seventh heaven when you taste it. 

And that's what Max's in Gensan is all about. 

Max's, the House that Fried Chicken Built, is already here in General Santos City. Hurray! Housed in SM City in General Santos, Max's is clearly one for the books because of its clean tables, very friendly waiting staff and their bakery which offers my favorite caramel bars. 

Found in the second level of SM City Gensan, my friends and I were delighted with their invitation to try their chicken, something really extraordinary here in our place considering that the best we could really have is KFC, or Jollibee's Chicken Joy, and some local chicken inasal. But fried chicken is fried chicken and one thing I can say, you will never go wrong with the fried chicken in Max's.

My friends enjoying their Max's chicken got freebies too, awesome! I can't wait till my next visit with family! If you wanna get high and want to have that mouthgasmic feeling, try Max's Gensan, only at SM City.

And oh by the way, if you have been to many Max's stores elsewhere, you might want to notice one thing that's different from our Max's in SM City Gensan, prices are way cheaper, and I am not complaining. For some unknown reason, it really is affordable.

C L I C H E'

n. A trite or obvious remark. 

I was reading Fifty Shades of Grey and I happen to shout it out on my Facebook account, when a friend of mine commented saying the book was too cliche for his type.

I agree, the way it was written was such a cliche, but I think it is good cliche. 

1. a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox.

2. (in art, literature, drama, etc.) a trite or hackneyed plot, character development, use of color, musical expression, etc.

3. anything that has become trite or commonplace through overuse.

Bridal Diet = Briet


n. A diet that a bride uses to lose weight before her wedding day. [Bridal + diet.]

Haha, there, that word! Well, for those who are desperate enough to lose weight, we always have to bear in mind that we need to do "briet". The bridal diet is one kind of diet where we would want to be back to our old self, I mean the old body, the slimmer, sexy body.

A bride must be very beautiful and very slim and sexy on her wedding day, thus, she has to do the briet. And we too, must be inspired to be back to our bridal gown fitness in order to please our husbands and other people too, and practice proper lifestyle. Thus, the briet. But we must be careful on how we do this "briet".

I say you just exercise, and slow down on eating and sleep enough.

My Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs

Influential, that's it! They're the kind of blogs which influence me and my life for a number of things. Here's my list and the reason why they are the blogs I follow:

1. Ganda Ever So Much - My daily dose of laughter, serious information and insightful read. My daily caffeine partner!

2. Kikay Much! - Ladies, be prepared! She flaunts a good aura in all ways, she's one of the best beauty blogs I have stumbled upon.

3. Kusina ni Maria - Where did I get my beef stew recipe? Only here in this blog, gastronomic pleasures she can share! And the thing is, this is where I snag my pachamba dishes, only, it gets better with her instructions.

4. Gensan Gems - Aside from her adventurous stay here in Gensan, she is my neighbor whom I can turn to when it comes to everything "kitchen" and "pasta". Her experiences are worth re-telling!

5. Alexis Chua - He is young and intelligent, and his blog is worth a visit each time he's got new stuffs to share. His posts are made from a genius mind, brilliantly written from the heart.

6. Digital Exposures - Truly a vice, his addiction to his camera and the photographs he makes is just second to his love for Ligaya, errr, and the bones... A good read because of the good pictures he flaunts!

7. Ako si Rabsky - Emo, he may be, but he writes his thoughts like a pro- yeah, a professional emo, hahaha. Kidding aside, this cutesy lanky guy has an imagination of a genius, his creative ways are reasons enough to nominate him.

8. Get Prettified - Am not the kikay type, but I'd sure like to get tips from her, especially on facial colors. Do I get me a makeup kit with this? Hehehe...

9. Klikha - A new way to share your photo shots! He does love his new camera, upgraded from a point and shoot, he's already clicked the shutter 5000 times!

10. Plurk Designs - Lyle's plurk designs is where I snag my plurk themes. So much for lurking!

So there! That's my top ten, there's really more but since we need to nominate only ten, here's my take! If you want to check out the other influential blogs, check it here.
