Some things that I've noticed ever since I returned to Honolulu...

- How fabulous are the Fall 2006 trends at this very moment? Yeah, I know, we don't have "autumn" here in Honolulu, but ever since I got back and saw the wooden platform shoes in the stores (a little like these babies, which I spotted from a link on Tia Williams' blog) I knew I just had to have 'em. This time, however, I'm going to make sure I pay good money for them - if there's anything I've learned from spending so much time in Manila, it's the fact that life's too short for too-cheap shoes. (Although, in my defense, I did spend less than $20 on my last shoe-shopping trip with my Mom, when I bought the most adorable rust-colored kitten heels and some Prada-ish beige loafers. Love those shoes.)

- Forgive me, people, but I watched Ugly Betty last night. Shut up. I watched because I caught some episodes of the Mexican version (La Fea Mas Bella) in the Philippines this summer - I even got into a fight with my Dad because I wanted to watch this and he wanted to watch the news. ANYWAY. It's so over-the-top and telenovela-ish and such a guilty pleasure all around. Bonus points to Salma Hayek for poking fun of herself in the "telenovela" segments. Now, if somebody would just make an American version of Lovers in Paris...

- (For those of you reading this blog from the Philippines, skip this if you don't want to know what happens in Season 3) How hilarious was last night's Grey's Anatomy, by the way? I just loved that ending, with McSteamy (Eric Dane) getting out of the shower wearing nothing but that big, yummy white bath towel. I don't know about you, but Eric Dane - all of him - makes me think some seriously unchaste thoughts. In other news, I also love the fact that George's girl Callie has a refreshingly yummy bod.

- Okay, readers from the Philippines, you can start reading again here. Why? Because I just checked out the movie listings and... guess what's showing at Dole Cannery this week? Yup: You Are The One, with Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga. My only regret is that nobody's going to make You Are The Man any time soon. Or, for that matter, Sugod: The Movie, starring yours truly and Dennis Trillo as "Diego."

- The other night, I turned on the TV to KGMB-9, and I noticed that the guy who was delivering the news updates looked kinda hot, in a Daniel Dae Kim kind of way - tanned, buff, totally relaxed. Then he introduced himself, and my jaw dropped. Why? The reporter was CEDRIC MOON. Yes, the same Cedric Moon who I took to task in this blog not too long ago for having severe bitchface. I don't know what happened here, folks, but I do recommend sitting through KGMB-9's newscasts once in a while to see what I mean. Well played, KGMB.

- In other news: Why, oh, WHY did nobody tell me that PF Chang's just opened at Ward? GAH.

Edited 10/01/2006 because this entry could use more Daniel Dae Kim... and, for that matter, yet another link to a certain Pinoy band on YouTube. Yeah, Peter Sarsgaard wishes he could play guitar like that.

Thanks for the compliment. It's good to know I'm no longer on the "bitchface" list and have improved since then.

Wondering how I stumbled onto the post? Maybe you could chalk it up to "vanity". Whenever I have time, I like to look online and see what people may say about me. Not necessarily about my appearance -- although I still count it -- but about my reporting. I like to read criticisms (and compliments) about my work so I can fix mistakes and continue doing what I'm doing right. That's the God's-honest truth.

I'll try not to be such a "bitchface" anymore. Thanx for the critique.

Hey Cedric! I can't believe you actually read this! Aw, man, now I wish I didn't use the word "bitchface" to describe you... Seriously, though. I've watched a couple of KGMB newscasts since this post and I think you're doing an excellent job with the reporting. And it's nice to know that you're actually cool enough to pay attention to what people have to say about your work, no matter how critical or (in my case) shallow. I haven't worked in news myself, so I wasn't sure how you were going to take this in case the entry did turn up in the search... but here it is, and I'm glad we're cool!

Keep up the good work, Cedric!
