What makes Destiny Cable awesome...

Destiny Cable carries Discovery: Travel and Living and what's awesome about it is the show called Man vs. Food!

What is it about?

It's about Adam Richman travelling the US and he visits local restaurants. Name it! He goes to the special ones like a popular Philly Cheesesteak place in Philadelphia, a popular Pancake place in Hawaii, Quesadillas in Texas, etc. and he faces challenges of that specific restaurant.

It's INSANE!!! But it's fun to watch! Adam eats the tastiest food in the US! There are some challenges that are EXTREMELY difficult like eating 10 wings with POST-APOCALYPTIC HOT SAUCE!!! He didn't finish it. He had to eat a 4 pound Pancake with blueberries in Hawaii. But he had to finish it in 90mins!!! He failed that one too!!! But then he did finish the cheesesteak challenge in Philly, the Sushi Challenge with 10 levels of hot sauce, etc.

Adam is witty as a host and he knows how to describe food! He has references to comic books too that's why I like him. You know he's a geek at heart.

But be warned, watching this show can make you extremely hungry! It can also make you feel extremely sorry for Adam when he eats spicy food. If you want to know more about this show, visit the show's website at http://www.travelchannel.com/TV_Shows/Man_V_Food

If you haven't seen this show and you're a Destiny subscriber, by all means, WATCH THIS SHOW!

July na pala...

Man, I haven't had a dry spell that long. So here I am. I'm back! Did you miss me? :) Kidding aside, I have been having "me" time. I missed it. I missed it a lot."Me time" would include spending time with loved ones. But occassionally, I have my alone time.

I have missed so many things already. I have tons of comic book backlog. Seriously. I have yet to catch up on my Amazing Spider-Man... 38 issues and counting... Would you believe? I've caught up with most of my titles but Spidey has been in the waiting list... He'll understand.


What have I been doing? My relatives from the Cruz side who live in the US came to visit and we hung out. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail, we get to keep in touch.  I was with them almost everyday so that took away some blogging time. But family first! 

Has my life changed since June 30? I'd say yes in a way. I think my glasses are a dead giveaway. I walk around the mall and there was this person who shouted "Jiggy!" I thought I knew the guy but it was a real estate agent I never met...  There are some lolas and moms who also say hi in which I say hello with a smile. I lost my private life I guess. When I'm out having dinner, people look... Sometimes it feels weird. When they stare, that's when it's weird! What I will miss... Well, I really can't go to the Greenhills tiangge and bargain right? Hahaha! Kidding. But seriously, I think it's privacy gone. Public Service comes with a price and we're in it for the long haul. Para sa bayan!

I've seen a couple of movies... Toy Story 3 was awesome! Eclipse was... Eclipse. 

What's interesting now is that I'll be joining the 24 Hour Comic Book Challenge! check out http://24.jonasdiego.com I signed up on impulse so wish me luck!

I have some blog ideas and I feel that it's not proper to put in here so I'll be blogging it separately. But things have turned out to be exciting for me in the upcoming days ahead... I'll keep you posted!

See ya!
