Yesterday’s The Walking Dead Season 2 finale became the talk of the town, err… world! It has been reported that season 2 finale shattered its own record TV ratings. This TV series has caught my attention as soon as I was able to see its first edition via online streaming. I became addicted ever since. I have to set aside the other TV series I have been watching to give way and catch up with The Walking Dead.
Season 2′s episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner” made me cry and I will really miss Dale. That episode made me wish for Shane (Jon Bernthal) to exit as well. His character became so annoying and unpredictable.
I felt like my wish was granted on the episode “Better Angels” where Shane has pushed Rick (Andrew Lincoln) to his limits. Best friends no more, Rick had to fight back in defense of his family and the rest of the group. Shane used their search for Randall (Michael Zegen) as a ploy to kill Rick but karma was digital (LOL! I am not expecting to use this here) – Shane’s plan backfired at him. Carl (Chandler Riggs) had to put Shane down as soon as the latter became a zombie and tried attacking Rick. That bullet has put an end to Shane’s character but caught the attention of zombies …tons of them, in fact.
These are screen captures I made from The Walking Dead Season 2 streaming I watched just for this post. In the next photo, you’ll see Rick talking to his son, Carl while a herd of zombies are far behind approaching them.
The Walking Dead season 2′s finale was bloody as almost everyone has expected. Zombies were everywhere…this has been the episode with real zombie action. Hershel’s barn was burned down to distract the walkers and for the group to be able to escape. Hershel (Scott Wilson) bravely faced the zombies and was rescued by Rick. Jimmy (James McCune) and Patricia (Jane McNeill) were killed by the zombies as they tried to escape with the group. Andrea (Laurie Holden) rescued Carol (Melissa McBride) which unfortunately also caused for her to be separated from the group.
It was also in this episode where everyone learned about what Dr. Jenner (Noah Emmerich) whispered to Rick at the CDC – that everyone is infected, that no matter how you die, you will eventually turn into a zombie. Rick’s statements and actions became a surprise to everyone, as they weren’t expecting a Rick to be a tough dictator. The appearance of the hooded character (Michonne in the comic series) as it saved Andrea from a zombie attack in the woods was one of the highlights of the season finale too. The mysterious character came out of nowhere armed with a sword and has two armless walkers chained to waist. Michonne (Danai Gurira) is said to play a big role in the upcoming Season 3 of this TV series. She’s even said to be a favorite character in comic series.
This image was shown to end up this season’s final episode.The Prison.
In this finale, a lot of questions arise.
Are you gonna miss Shane?
What do you think of Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) as she’s reacted negatively after Rick admitted to have killed his best friend, apparently her boyfriend (ex, since Shane’s dead already =P).
What will happen to Andrea and Michonne? Will the two build an alliance?
I think the most appropriate question is, what lies ahead of the group?
These questions will find its answers by fall as we welcome season 3. Without a doubt, season 2 is a winner.
What more exciting for kids than to see Barney in a show, live!
My elder daughter grew up loving Barney and it goes the same with the younger one. Their adoration of Barney can easily be seen with all the VCDs and DVDs we have at home. It is from Barney they both learned the magic words, “Please” and “Thank You”. It was Barney and Mommy here of course who taught them the song “I Love You, You Love Me”. We have seen recorded Barney show in DVD format but not a live one yet. My elder daughter got to experience Disney On Ice show few years back and so as got the chance to see Dora The Explorer’s show at the Aliw Theater too. Now that there’s two of them, and both saw the ad for Barney Space Adventure show here in Manila, they both wanted to go! Having seen shows like this before, I already have an idea on how much a ticket would cost. I will definitely have to save up for me to get a ticket … I mean, tickets for the 3 of us. Minus the husband – knowing him, he’s not going to join us for sure. I have searched the net for the ticket cost and the details of the show itself as well. Here’s what I have got:
The show will be held at the ALIW Theater at the CCP Complex in Pasay City. The show will run from April 26 to April 29. If I will have to get 3 tickets for the “Price Zone 3″, I should prepare almost 5K. I still have enough time though and if this show will make my kids so happy, I will give it to them. I am sure that for these little kids, this is a once in a lifetime experience.

Annebisyosa, No Other Concert was held very recently. It was a hit and I am not surprised. It was also just recently when Tony Award-winning actress and singer Lea Salonga was questioned about her “strong opinions about off-key singers” and if she was referring to Anne Curtis. It was denied by Lea, said that Anne didn’t identify herself as a singer and just made her dream concert come true so she ( Lea Salonga ) can’t be angry at Anne. In fact, Lea Salonga said she’s happy for Anne has made her dream a reality.
I feel personally happy for Anne as well, everyone who attended the concert went home happy with a smile in their faces. I should have saved and watched it too. I believe with what Lea said, that she did not really diss Anne Curtis. Let us just be happy for them both. I even think Lea Salonga is referring to someone big time. Don’t you?
She wowed the world with her golden voice. The singer even proved a lot with her movie The Bodyguard. Whitney Houston said to have died at age 48, as per Associated Press. The cause and death of the singer has not been revealed yet but the music industry is very much saddened by lsoing yet another awesome singer – performer.
It was Kristin Foster, Whitney Houston ‘s publicist informed the AP about the singer /actress’ passing. It has been well known though that in recent years, the singer struggled with drug abuse.
Whitney Houston is known to be the Golden Girl of the music industry. Her self titled debut album which was released year 1985 was said to have sold 25M copies worldwide. She even earned 30 Billboard awards. She is definitely golden, right? Beyond that golden voice and singing talent, she’s also made a mark in her acting career with her movies “Waiting To Exhale” and “The Bodyguard”. It was said too that Whitney has influenced a lot of singers like Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. In one of her interviews with Oprah, Whitney Houston mentioned that using drugs became an everyday thing like work for her but wasn’t happy and she started losing herself already.
It was also recent when I have read that Whitney was asked to join The X Factor as a judge along with Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. That will not happen anymore. Even so, Whitney has already made an unforgettable mark. I will personally always remember her with her movie The Bodyguard and song “I Will Always Love You”. The song, just so you’d know, became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. She’s definitely talented. Farewell Whitney.
I do not really buy Sharon At home magazine but when I saw this particular issue that says “The farewell issue” – I grabbed a copy and paid it on impulse. As it shows in the cover, Sharon Cuneta is with her 2 lovely daughters and a charming little guy – her adopted son Miguel. Sharon referred Miguel to be the child who came from her heart. It is the first time couples Sharon and Kiko Pangilinan allowed Miguel to be photographed for publication. Sharon said that Miguel, who is now 2 years of age, is not just smart but also really sweet. He even started to look like them, as many people say. Something I must agree. There were even rumors that Miguel happens to be Kiko’s real son from another woman which Sharon denied in a talk show.
I can not say that I am an avid fan of Sharon Cuneta but I find her personality so appealing and admiring. She’s witty, charming and her laughter and happy disposition in life is so contagious. Even if I only own one issue of this magazine, I know this farewell issue is truly special to the staff and so as to Sharon herself. It even featured a Christmas prayer:
Jesus, the light of the world, as we celebrate your birth…may we begin to see the world in the light of understanding you give us. As you chose the lowly, the outcasts, and the poor to receive greatest news the world had ever known, so may we worship you in meekness of heart. May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving. Amen.
Aside from the stories of her previous reality show, talk show, being a celebrity endorser, celebrations, easy recipe ideas, chronicles and photos, the issue concentrated more on how Sharon manages to balance work, family and play. It also featured and pointed out great things about the reality that there is not anything bad about adoption nor being adopted. In this magazine she named famous and great people who were also adopted like her son Miguel. I truly admire how she can be wonderful in front of the camera as an actress and host and be as wonderful as a Mom to her kids. It is like being best in both her worlds. There were lots of photos where photographer Jun de Leon captured the Sharon Cuneta as the person we see on TV and the other Sharon as an ordinary person she is off cam.
Sharon Cuneta is just like every good Mom there is – her family, especially the kids, serves as the key inspiration for anything and everything she does. And as she puts it in her words – “You may have complaints every now and then, but the good things always outweigh the bad. God’s been so amazing!”. We may see Sharon Cuneta to have been so blessed and others may even envy her but she still has a lot of things she wish to have and experience..even have a bucket list for all we know!
ASTIG PINOY Grand finals performance video Credits to YT uploader PrinceYatz21
As we were waiting for all the finalists to finish their performances, we already have Astig Pinoy as our champion this season. WE, as I was with my daughters that time we watched Showtime. Astig Pinoy was totally awesome! Their grand finals performance was a combination of our unique culture and unique hip movements. As Joey Marquez mentioned, it was a right choice of music and good interpretation of it. It was quite predictable who will champ this season right after Astig Pinoy performed. Their talents are really inspiring, admiring and totally ASTIG! Awesome performance! Vice Ganda said it right, the blind folded Tinikling act/dance was the highlight of their performance and the most amazing act there was in the history of Showtime. Way better than the hip dances, loops, jumps and acrobats we have seen.
Congratulations Astig Pinoy! You guys rock and will definitely go a long way. Cheers to your success!
