JUDGING part one of Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" prelude "The Hobbit" is a bit like reviewing a film after seeing only the first act.
Yet here goes: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is stuffed with Hollywood's latest technology — 3-D, high-speed projection and Dolby's Atmos surround sound system. The result is some eye candy that truly dazzles and some that utterly distracts, at least in its test-run of 48 frames a second, double the projection rate that has been standard since silent-film days.

HERE is a list of celebrities I wish to make over:
1. Sharon Cuneta. Currently she has long hair with, I guess, some layers. I want to put more layers and emphasize it at the sides in a way that would make her face look longer and slimmer. She curls her hair but I prefer it long and super straight to make her face look slim and she would look taller and slimmer with this hair style, too. I want to color her hair to deep dark colors to add up to the slimming effects of her cut. I suggest she might get an idea on what to wear by watching what Oprah wears in her shows.

HAIL.. hail.. the gangs all here. Its holiday time so open the beer and have a good time. Did you know how many countries use beer as an essential ingredient for cooking? Almost all beer drinking countries, (which is most of the world probably) cook with beer. The beverage gives a distinct flavor not achieved by the use of any kind of herbs. The taste is distinctive and very different from the use of wine. Beer favors beef and wine favors other meats like chicken and pork. A lot of people though use beer and wine interchangeably. Since the Philippines is more beer drinking than wine drinking, you can try this recipe.
