I nearly forgot that I have this blog site with me… oh well, nothing’s new has been happening to me recently.

I just want to share a line from Paulo Coelho’s book Eleven Minutes.

…I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I realize that I didn’t go into that café by chance; really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.

As others would translate it:

“There are no chances… everything has a purpose…”

Really now?

It’s for you to know and for me to find out.

If there’s one word to describe Formula1 this series, DRAMA, as always.

First up, the McLaren Mercedes lie tailgate at the start of the season. I am a McLaren F1 team fan when Ron Dennis was still the team principal. He was I think the most consistent and the best strategist as far as I’ve seen them race. But after resigning from the team, McLaren took a downfall. Well at least for the season and I know that they starting from scratch with the new regulations and new team to work with.

As for the drivers, after Mika Hakkinen retired, Kimi Raikkonen was there to replace him as my next favorite driver and I was really happy when he won the driver’s championship 2 years back. Ferrari struggled at the start of this season because of the double diffuser and other chassis regulation disputes. But they and the other teams are catching up right now. Specially Redbull’s Sebastian Vettel who is so called the next generation ‘Michael Schumacher’.

As of this season, Jenson Button is the leader with a pretty nice margin in the championship points. I know that Jenson is a good driver when the team was still owned by Honda, because he was the one who shone when there were only 2 or 3 teams racing for championships and everyone else was behind the pack. I really thought before that he is also one of the drivers that can be a contender or better, a world champion one day. He is really lucky that he have a championship car and a good team boss today. I’d say good luck to him and for the rest of the team.

Who will win the championship? Based from the last 2 seasons, this season is pretty much the same Vettel can be Jenson’s closest contender aside from his team mate Rubens Barichello. They will have a mano-a-mano race fight until the last 2-3 races when they can predict the world champion.

Next is the ‘breakaway’ series. But I really doubt that there would be a one because Max Mosley (FIA President), will go down and I know that as a businessman, he don’t want to see his pay go down or worse, lose a job. And I doubt that FOTA can organize a Formula1-like championship series in a span of less than a year. That is why they had a compromised agreement and now all teams this season and 3 new teams will be competing in the 2010 Formula1 championship. That would be a great season to watch and I have never seen F1 grid filled with 26 cars since the first time I’ve watched it.

The entry list for 2010 are as follows: (quoted from f1.gpupdate.net)

Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro (Ferrari-engines)
Vodafone McLaren Mercedes (Mercedes-engines)
BMW Sauber F1 Team (BMW-engines)
Renault F1 Team (Renault-engines)
Panasonic Toyota Racing (Toyota-engines)
Scuderia Toro Rosso (engines tba)
Red Bull Racing (engines tba)
AT&T Williams (Toyota-engines)
Force India F1 Team (Mercedes-engines)
Brawn GP Formula One Team (engines tba)
Campos Meta Team (Cosworth-engines)
Manor Grand Prix (Cosworth-engines)
Team US F1 (Cosworth-engines)

KERS or Kinetic Energy Recovery System (if you want to read more about it, try googleing it out, even I can’t really understand the technical aspects of it), in easier terms, when an F1 car breaks, it regenerates/recovers energy and when it is filled up, the driver pushes a button and yielding additional 80 horsepower for 6.6 seconds. In simpler terms it is like a ‘rechargeable booster’. But it weighs about 30-40 kg or about half of an F1 driver’s weight. The added bulk gives the team a harder time getting the balance of the car, furthermore drivers has to lose more weight, because of weight limit issues with the car, which is not good when driving an F1 car. Other safety issues about KERS were brought up.

At the start of the season, at least 5 teams continue to develop their cars using KERS. But as of the last race in Silverstone, only Ferrari uses KERS. Everyone else abandoned the system and shifts their focus in developing the aerodynamics of their cars. FOTA has agreed not to use KERS for the 2010 season despite the regulations made by FIA for next season. We will still see as this KERS drama unfolds. Will Ferrari still continue to develop their car with KERS in it? Will the FIA still pursue developing KERS, or will it be another dispute with FOTA opting to boycott KERS?

This season also said goodbye to 2 of the historical circuits from the ‘F1 circus’, Hockenheim and Silverstone. But we will see new circuits as F1 goes.

All is well that ends well. We saw a very exciting last 2 seasons from F1, and I know that this season will be as exciting and so is the next one. What more can I say, let’s just sit back and enjoy more F1 dramas as they unfold.

*woot* (with a big eyes and a big smile) Another plurk expression craze for me today. I came home this morning from somewhere and saw a mailman inserted a letter on our gate. As I came closer to the letter to get it, you can see a big smile on my face.

Why? It was a small envelope letter with a big DCA (Department of Consumer Affairs) on the upper left portion.

What does it mean? The last time I got a letter from them, they sent me a big bulky letter and the message inside told me that I failed my exam. This time, I was certain that I got the right letter. Yes folk finally, I passed my NCLEX-RN exam. *woot*

I thought of trying to catch the mailman and give him a big hug for sending the letter. Oh man, was I really relieved. Well, at least for today and maybe until the weekend.

I also got good news from a couple of review mates from before and they also passed the exams. Now I’m still waiting for the results of the other mates. Congratulations to all of us and good luck to those who are still waiting for the results and to those who will be taking the exam! I know you can also make it. GOD IS GOOD!

I am still a bum and still looking for something to do. I don’t know, a job? Desperate times calls for desperate measures. Where shall I go now? Oh man.

I was there again in a coffee shop trying to study. When I got there, I first sat across the corner and there were a bunch of people at the other corner across the coffee shop, they were literally shouting at each other and you can hear what they are talking. Can’t they talk in normal voices like all other people do? Thank God they were gone soon.

Anyway, after an hour, there were two people sat two tables beside me and at least they were talking normally and not as disturbing as the last one. One was presenting something and the other was the one interviewing or asking questions to the presentor.

The interviewer suddenly asks a question. “How will you know what other people don’t know of or how will you know what others want to know?” the presentor answered “Hmm, It’s like knowing the unknown…”. 

I got really curious about this one and hopefully someone can give me a close or logical answer to that question.

I was just chatting with a friend and we were trying to plan another EB with the co-moderators of http://www.dotastrategy.com. So we planned a quick YM conference and the other one was trying to ask for advice from me because he was feeling nauseous and actually vomitted.

Last March 21, 2009 I attended a friend’s wedding and 2 of their principal sponsors were celebrities so we did not waste the moment to have a picture with them. And with their status in politics and television, I do not need to mention their names just see the pictures we got.

Loren Legarda

Yes, we caught up on her when she was about to get in her car.

Edu Manzano


I even tried to joke around with him and asked: “Pwedeng pa-kiss?” He replied: “Hindi bagay sa image natin, macho tayo e, sayang ang gwapo mo pa naman.”


This aside, I really wish TJ and Grace congratulations and hope and I know they will have a happy moments together.
