Tech Review: Blackberry Bold 9790

Several weeks ago, I was asked to review a Blackberry Bold 9790. It was my first time to try BB and I believe it won't hurt if I give it a try. *wink*

Blackberry Bold 9790

The Blackberry Bold 9790 is slimmer and sexier than any other Blackberry phones in the market. Trust me, the older versions were bulkier and thicker. This particular Blackberry smartphone is aesthetically pleasing - easy to handle and very stylish. The keyboard is ergonomically designed. It is easier to type long messages on this phone than any other touch phones in the market. There’s just the right mix of rubber and plastic to make grip and style reach an equal standing without looking cheap. *Thumbs up*

This smartphone features a 5.0 megapixel autofocus camera. It can also capture videos with a maximum resolution of 640*480 pixels. There's nothing special about its camera and when shooting at low-light environment, the quality is meh.

Crazy with Donuts and Pizzas

My grandmother usually spoil me with either donuts or pizzas when I was young. After school, she would always bring me to the nearest donut or pizza houses. I cry whenever she doesn't buy my favorite food. Spoiled brat!

go nuts donuts

These two are just one of my comfort foods. Nom nom nom! But just last Thursday, Go Nuts Donuts unveiled their newest meal - pizza donuts!

Rejected UPCAT Essay Questions

I was really surprised when I found out that UPCAT comes with a new part - the essay part. Six years ago when I took the UPCAT, we were only required to answer four subtests - English, Math, Science and Reading and Comprehension. It seemed that the administrators are curious to know what's inside the minds of the future Iskolar ng Bayan.

I was browsing the trending topics on Twitter when I came across with this hashtag: #RejectedUPCATEssayQuestions

It really made my day (or night, whatever)! Whoever created this is a genius. I salute you mate!

Here are some of my favorites:

Twenty Two

One. 'Papa' was the first legit word I've muttered. My parents got very happy by it. Oh, the simple joys of life.

Two. I ruined a show. It happened during a dance presentation of a big company held at the gymnasium of Ateneo de Zamboanga University. The moment I saw the Ninja Turtles and the Tom and Jerry mascots (those were my favorite cartoon characters, by the way), I ran at the stage and danced as if there's no tomorrow.

Three. Was so fascinated with insects! My grandfather used to catch big grasshoppers. Grasshoppers were my first 'pet' actually.

Four. Time for school. Didn't cry when my mom left me inside the classroom, thank God. I wasn't really sociable during that time and I only had a few friends.

Five. My old Chinese teacher forgot to turn off the fan, causing her wig to move. So, the rumors were true! "Oh my, look! Lau sher (Chinese for teacher) is bald!", I cried. Lau sher was so embarrassed and mad that she ordered me to step out of the classroom and stand for hours under the scorching heat of the sun. The following day, I had fever. Good thing, I didn't die due to heat stroke. Apparently, my Chinese teacher died a few years later.

Six. I went to school late, as always. And then I realized, I left my bag at our house. I only brought my lunch box. I cried because it was so embarrassing. My teacher laughed because she thought that it was the cutest thing in the world. Screw you, bitch.

Seven. Joined the impersonation contest of the Linggo ng Wika. I impersonated Jose Rizal, the country's national hero. I won first place, by the way

Eight. First communion. It was my first time to receive the alleged body of our Savior. "That doesn't look like a human flesh!", I jeered. "No, no, you have to open your eyes for you to see the Lord," my Christian Living teacher said. "My eyes are already open. Do I have to open my third eye, then?"

Nine. An old vendor of our school canteen scolded me because I didn't give her the exact amount. I cried. Minutes after, my mom approached the old, grumpy lady together with some of my batch mates - they were 50 of them. They became my instant friends... for that day only.

Ten. Told my long-time crush that I crush her. Expectation: "Awwww, thank you, that's so sweet of you dear!" Reality: She slapped my right cheek. Ouch. Yes, I didn't know that I was THAT ugly.

Eleven. I was the Vice President of the class. Everyone in the class hated me, including my class adviser. Truth is, they're just jealous.
