Americans have LESS SEX!?

Wow, that's a surprise.

"Americans have sex 118 times a year, below the average of 127.

Eastern Europeans have sex an average 150 times a year. The countries with the lowest sex frequencies are Sweden (102), Malaysia (100), and Singapore (96)."

Get more interesting tidbits here.

ACTING

All my life, I've been involved in all sorts of creative pursuits and endeavors including theater and film.

Most of the time however, I'm the guy behind the scenes (writing scripts, making music, etc.). To tell you the truth I am quite uncomfortable in front of a camera. While I don't exactly have stage fright, I know I'd rather be pulling the strings than being in the spotlight.

This year, as part of my resolution to do something new whenever opportunity presents itself, I accepted the offer to do some acting work for one of my best friend's father. I was a bit nervous admittedly but thankfully my friends were also playing other parts in the film and it made the experience more enjoyable.

We've also gained new experiences and new friends so it's definitely a win-win situation!

I have some ways to go before I can even begin to call myself an actor but I have new found respect for the people who practice the craft with passion and dedication.

I look forward to the new acting assignment that presents itself.

Check out the pictures I took of our day of shooting. Click here.

Bought a VIVAZ

My long time companion Motorola A1200, otherwise known as the Motoming, recently conked out.

It wasn't really that bad. I can still use it to send and receive text messages but the speakers were dead and I couldn't find a decent service center (is Motorola hightailing it out of the Philippines?). We had a good run, the Motoming and I. More than 5 years in fact and maybe it was time to retire the phone.

Besides I still had my SE W760i.

A few weeks later it also conks out. What are the odds?

Apparently the problem meant that it was going to spend a few days in the service center but there was no way I was going to be without a means of mobile communication.

I decided to buy a new phone.

I was originally going to get an Xperia x10 but it was kinda big. I wanted something that would fit comfortably in my pocket and the Satio seemed like a good alternative but there was a lot of bad reviews about it and so decided against buying one in the end.

After much deliberation I purchased the VIVAZ and I must say that I am quite happy with the unit so far.

I hope it lasts!
