Miss Philippines Earth 2009 Winners

Sandra Seifert Crowned Miss Philippines Earth 2009

Sandra Seifert of Negros Occidental was crowned Miss Philippines Earth 2009 in the Coronation Night held at The Arena in San Juan City last night besting 49 candidates. It was a double victory, since another Negros Occidental candidate, Adie Adelantar of Victorias City was crowned Miss Eco-Tourism.

It was a heart-warming moment when Seifert and Adelantar held hands and raised their arms when Billy Crawford was about to announce who between them will be crowned Miss Philippines Earth. It’s like they’re raising the pride and glory of Negros Occidental. They really made their fellow Negrenses proud.

Seifert and Adelantar had very impressive answers both in the Top 10 and in the Final Question and Answer which received thunderous applause from the audience. Indeed, they have the brains to go with the face and body.

Seifert is very updated on the environmental issues in Negros Occidental especially in Bacolod City. Seifert identified waste segregation as the major concern of Negros Occidental having only three out of the 13 citites implement the Solid Waste Management Act. She said it’s her advocacy to promote solid waste management so that more cities and municipalities in the province implement it.

Seifert and Adelantar are both previous candidates in the Bb. Pilipinas pageant. Whereas Adelantar failed to grab the crown in 2007, Seifert was controversially disqualified two days before the coronation night of Bb. Pilipinas 2009 because of some racy photos with FHM. What a great come back for the two beauty queens!

Another winner from Western Visayas was Michelle Martha Braun of Aklan.

American Idol' star David Cook's brother Adam dies of brain cancer

After battling cancer for more than 10 years, American Idol star David Cook's brother, Adam, 37, succumbed to the disease Saturday. David made the announcement at the Washington D.C. Race for Hope 5K, which raises money to support finding a cure for brain cancer, this morning. "Like everybody here, I'm affected by this disease. I actually lost my brother yesterday to a brain tumor," Cook said, as you can hear members of the crowd gasping. "I couldn't imagine... I couldn't imagine being anywhere else right now." David was serving as grand marshal of the event and ran the 3.1 miles in 28 minutes. "I lost one today," Cook added. "But I've gained 9,000 and I will be here every year that they will have me."

Teen-agers. Adventurous. Hot. Extreme, and sharp. 12 hugs, 14 kisses, 16 sex, 17 pregnant, and 18 married.

Some teen-agers are busy making comments, lay-outs, and glitters on myspace and other friendly chat rooms but some too are busy making milk for their babies, spoon feeding and arguing with their husbands and wives at a young age. Teenage marriage. Not cool. Love in hell. Paradise in dumps. Joy in sadness. Not balance. Taste of something. Experience or thrill for something new.

Teenagers are playful. They are still kids. Little fellows that are craving for attention, then, they found this one on they so called soul mates or destiny, but in reality it is not. It may cause unwanted pregnancy or even a marriage game. Then one day, they wake up regretting all their doings. Mourning and crying all they. Critics and gossips from everywhere. I’m afraid their child can be like them.

Now, do you want to play?

Let’s play the hottest craze------- ONLINE MARRIAGE GAME!

What is the appropriate poem for this????


Kissing is a habit
Fucking is a game
Boys get the pleasure
Girls get the pain

The boy says “I love you”
You believe it’s true
But when your tummy starts to swell
He’ll just says,” who the hell are you?”

The baby is a bastard
The mother is a whore
This couldn’t happen
If the rubber was put on.


Hey guys, spread the good news…not the sperm….heheh


With one ferocious blow by Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton's amazing career is laid to rest

Manny Pacquiao's powerful left hook has ended any sensible prospect of Ricky Hatton fighting again

Ricky Hatton will not fight again. Not the one the fans remember. Even if a shredded remnant of the fighter who thrilled them for a decade contemplates doing so when he recovers from the shocking ­knockout Manny Pacquiao inflicted on him at the MGM Grand, the real Ricky ­Hatton started preparing for retirement soon after ­enduring a similar experience in the same ring 17 months ago.

The left hook with which Floyd Mayweather Jr repelled Hatton's crude ­challenge in the 10th round of their welter­weight title fight in December 2007 was the punch that instigated the Mancunian's slow exit from boxing. Until then, he was unbeaten, unfazed, the shiny young champion of his people. He was to grow old quickly. "He can't take a quality shot any more," a close friend said later on Saturday night, "and I think he knows it."

Mayweather's punch did not have the concussive finality of Pacquiao's wicked left, but the two blows will forever be linked. Pacquiao's arrived in the final second of round two, the third knockdown blow the Filipino had to throw to claim Hatton's IBO and Ring Magazine light-welterweight titles, and if Hatton heeds the wishes of family and friends the last one he will ever take.

Pacquiao put Hatton down in the first round with a right hook he admitted to his corner he never saw, and again with a short left before the bell. From that point on, it was clear we were in for a short night. Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, told later how they had worked on that right hook for weeks. "Ricky cocks his punches before he throws 'em. Every time he left an opening, Pacquiao's so quick, I knew the inside hook would work every time."

This was an echo of the strategic naivety Hatton showed against Mayweather, when he was out-thought and knocked down by a punch devised by the American's uncle and trainer, Roger.

Hatton seemed to have collected his thoughts when they resumed but was again afflicted by the "red mist" he blames for his wild, swinging ways and walked into more pinpoint shots from the smaller man. When the end came, it was as if we were all sharing the same, slow nightmare, so lightly did Hatton float to the floor. When he landed, he could barely open his eyes, but you could see the pain in them as he lay motionless, the referee, Ken Bayless, not needing to count him out.

Hatton did not just lose a fight and his titles at that moment. He lost all connection with the rest of us in the arena, the power drained from a body he had taken three months to whip into shape.

But the appearance of those rippling muscles could not disguise the damage he has done over the years with a hard-drinking lifestyle taken from some northern manual on male behaviour. It has been this, above all other follies, that has undermined his career, although he will not admit to it because he is a prisoner of his own making, a super-lad among lads.

By the time Hatton had recovered in the Valley hospital off Las Vegas Boulevard in the early hours of yesterday morning, he had Pacquiao's fists, not pints of Guinness, to thank for his headache, and he was greeted immediately by a mixed chorus of advice. Roach, the mastermind of his downfall, cautioned against carrying on. "He's had some mega-fights," he said. "He's had a great career. So, why? He doesn't need it. He has a family, he has a son. With commitments like that, he's got to think about retiring."

It will not be easy, but he will almost certainly walk away, having earned more than £30m in 12 years of largely exhilarating success, spoiled only towards the end by losing to two of the modern greats in Mayweather and Pacquiao. That fact will be the cornerstone of his justification for retiring now, the centrepiece of his ­nightclub act when he regains his self-esteem and goes back before his public.

That is the only consolation Hatton can take from the defeat. He lost to a fighter who Roach says is on his way to a special kind of greatness, a fighter who is now the hottest property in boxing. Mayweather, officially unretired, will want a piece of him, although Pacquiao now holds all the aces. "We're in no hurry," Roach says.

No amount of considered reflection will change the facts for Hatton, meanwhile: even if he wants to fight again, there is nobody for him to fight. What Pacquiao exposed was the last piece of evidence in a case that has been building steadily for a couple of years. Hatton's punch resistance has fallen to a dangerously low level. "The likes of Timothy Bradley and Kendall Holt would knock him out," a friend of Hatton's said. "Amir Khan would knock him out."

Juan Lazcano nearly stopped him in his comeback fight last year and even the light-hitting Paulie Malignaggi inconvenienced him a couple of times before Pacquiao got to him. The weeks, days and moments before this fight were fraught.

There were rows between his trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr, and his assistant, Lee Beard. There was speculation – since confirmed – that Roach had been asked to take over his training in the future. And there was a grim mood in the dressing room immediately before the fight.

"He was very nervous in the dressing room before the fight," a friend said. "I don't think he thought he was going to win, even then. I think he suspected he didn't have it anymore, but you can't admit that, not even to yourself."

For weeks, Hatton had railed against those who said that he was going to lose to the best fighter in the world. He sounded then as if he were trying to convince himself but, when it came to proving it, Hatton was in no position to argue the case. He was unconscious and lying flat on his back in the middle of the ring, as former a fighter as it is possible to be.
