Miss Universe 2012 Results: USA Won

Brazil, USA, Australia, Philippines and Venezuela.

Congratulations to Olivia Culpo from USA for winning the most coveted title MISS UNIVERSE. and to Janine Tugonon 1st runner up, I am so proud of you. You represented the country very well. A three-peat top 5 placement for the Philippines is not a simple thing to achieve in Miss Universe.

It was like Miss Universe 1973 where the elegant Margarita Moran won the crown all over again. The last two standing were Philippines and USA.

The top 5 were a group of front runners and underrated beauties. Philippines and Venezuela were expected to place in the top 5. But USA, Brazil and Australia came successful to even though they were predicted to have low placements by the pageant experts. As for me this line up of top 5 are very solid and formidable.

Olivia was shining through out the night. She was destined for the crown and I believe she is really deserving. Aside from the fact that she is only 5'5" in height, she manages to win the title.

Janine gave the best answer in the question and answer round. When I was watching that portion, I said to myself that she will win. But I realized that the final judging will be based from the beauty, body, personality and over all performance including swimsuit round, evening gown round and the Q and A round.

The most depressing thing happened was the non placement of the front runners and pageant fans favorite such as Miss Puerto Rico - Bodine Kohler, Miss Colombia - Daniella Alvarez, Miss Czech Republic - Tereza Cheblovska and Miss Malaysia - Kimberley Legget.

I was actually surprised by the placement of Hungary - Agnes Konkoly whom is one of my sentimental favorites and India - Shilpa Singh which was so good during the preliminaries. Shilpa was so good in catwalk and projection. Turkey surprised me too. She was stunning in the finale night.

The other winners are Irene Esser from Venezuela as 2nd Runner up, Renae Ayris from Australia as 3rd runner up and Gabriel Markus Brazil as 4th runner up.

Completing top 10 were from France - Marie Payet, Hungary - Agnes Konkoly, Mexico - Karina González, Russia - Elizabeth Golovanova and South Africa - Melinda Bam. Finishing the top 16 were Croatia - Elizabeta Burg, Kosovo - Diana Avdiu, India - Shilpa Singh, Peru - Nicole Faverón, Poland - Marcelina Zawadzka and Turkey - Çağıl Özge Özkul.

Miss Kosovo Diana Avdiu (Miss Photogenic)

Special awards were given to Miss Guatemala - Laura Godoy as Miss Congeniality, Miss Kosovo - Diana Avdiu as Miss Photogenic and Miss China - Ji Dan Xu as Best National Costume.

It was indeed a great show. See you again next year.

Marcolocco's Miss Universe 2012 Final Prediction

There are many stunning ladies this year. It is like 2008 all over again. But this will be the boldest and the most fearless prediction I ever had to date.. My prediction were based with the Preliminary and NC Performance, Personality, Beauty and Interview.


I know this post will be bashed by many pageant bloggers here because of my prediction winner but I don't give a damn. I consider her performance as the best of the rest of the candidates. STELLAR! Her smile was addictive and her presence of the stage exudes all over the audience. I do believe that her beauty really radiates and shines when she is on stage. She is fresh and the best Sri Lanka candidate after Maureen Neliya Hingert.

1st Runner up - Cayman Islands (Lindsay Japal)
2nd Runner up - New Zealand (Talia Bennet)
3rd Runner up - Philipines (Janine Tugonon)
4th Runner up - Croatia (Elizabeta Burg)

top 10

Puerto Rico
South Africa

top 16

El Salvador

Alternates: Colombia, Guyana, Kosovo, Aruba, Vietnam

Well, thats it... Comments and Violent Reaction are pretty much welcome..

I am so excited for the finals.

Just Another Thought

I look like a superstar!! BOOM! Just kidding!! Its just a picture in my lonely past.. Well, its been months since I last posted an entry here in my blog. How are me? hmmmmm Is that grammatically correct? Oh well I do not care.

I have been living as like I am alone in this world. Well, I do not why either. Its just that I feel alone.. Maybe because I have never been in a relationship for almost 8 months now... Or worst that I have not totally moved on with my previous relationship which lasted for four years and two months..

Yes I had a long-term relationship before but I do not want to talk about it here.. I do not want to remember things...

Well anyways, I just wish and hope that I wont feel alone anymore and be happy with my life. CIAO!

Diet List: Avocado

A person eating fruits everyday is the healthiest way to become more fit.

According to, the fruit Avocado contain more nutrients such as beta-sitolesteral (a smasher of cholesterol in a human body) than any other fruits.

Avocado is rich in minerals and vitamins. According to, "It is high in monounsaturated fat and potassium, and containing a unique fatty alcohol, avocadene, avocado fruits provide curative effects for a number of human ailments, from diarrhea to high blood pressure." However, there are parts in avocados that is harmful and potentially poisonous, it is their leaves. It caused several illnesses to animals.

For a great avocado diet meal, mash half an avocado with lime juice, salt and pepper, and onion. It is deliciousoo!!

I sometime slice the Avocado into small pieces (of course without the skin!) and mix it with small ice cubes and condensed milk and sugar. YUMMY!

Director's Cut Trailer of TIKTIK The Aswang Chronicles

This is the most awaited horror action thriller movie. WOW I just placed it in three incredible genres. For me, it will be another international hit just like The Road which was also produced by GMA Films.

I know ASWANG themed movies are very common but this one is different. The visual and sound effects are "avant garde" for the Philippine cinema. This is a more diverse and upgraded taste of any other Filipino horror movie.

Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles is showing on October 17, 2012, and stars Dingdong Dantes, Lovi Poe, Joey Marquez, Ramon Bautista & Janice De Belen.

Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles is produced by Reality Entertainment and Agostodos Pictures, in coorperation with GMA Films. Post Production was done by PostManila, with Visual Effects done by Mothership.

Post your comments about this upcoming horror movie.

The Unemployed

Hi guys. Its been months since I last posted here. Just got busy looking for a job..

I realize now that it is not that easy to look for a job. You need to be a lot more patient than you think. 

Well I will share to you some numbers about employment....

In April 2012, the Philippines’ unemployment rate dropped slightly to 6.9 percent announced by the National Statistics Office. The latest figure is lower than the 7.2 percent recorded during the same period in 2011.

Here in Davao City, the employment rate of 93.8 percent ranks second to the lowest throughout Mindanao. Maybe the reason is that there are already many established companies here in the region.

I wish I am part of that 93.8 percent. I have applied to different companies, large, small, stable, established, staggering, growing, starting companies. I also met many people which I really appreciate. I have a chance talk to different kinds of people, diverse individuals. 

I am an IT graduate and had experienced teaching in college. But I realized that I can be more happy and effective if I am in a different career. I do believe that I have excellent people relations skills and communication skills. I prefer a job where I am one of the team players where I get to talk to people like sales or customer service. It can make me more effective. I have been interviewed by HUNDREDS of companies but I am still unfortunate.

Right now, I am thinking positively and hopefully someday I can be hired in a stable job. I know I do it. POWER!

PS: If ever you get to read this post and you have a job offer, don't hesitate to text or call me. 09094177896 or 09334222433. Thanks

Kim and Xian reunited for another soap opera

Primetime drama princess Kim Chiu will have another TV drama series and she will be reunited by her rumored exclusively dating partner Xian Lim.

The TV drama title is "Ina, Kapatid, Anak". Enchong Dee and Maja Salvador will be in the new TV Drama. It will be directed Don Cuaresma and Jojo Saguin.

This is a big good news for the two actors. I believe that this new TV drama will be a big hit since their last soap (My Binondo Girl) together was a huge success.

Mutya ng Dabaw 2012: Marianne Mae Te

Mutya ng Dabaw 2012 Marianne Mae Te (center) and her court (Patet Magalona Fermin).

Mutya ng Dabaw 2012 just recently concluded last night and the winner is the bubbly and beautiful Marianne Mae Te. Te was a 21-year-old model and a certified cook who dreams to own a hotel or restaurant someday.

Te was an early crowd favorite because of her bubbly aura. She won because she was fluent in her answer and shows a bubbly personality during Dingdong's casual interviews. She is an AB Hotel and Restaurant Management graduate of the Philippine Women's College.

Dorothy Maruel Ibanez of Lanang, a registered nurse was crowned Diwa ng Davao (first runner-up). Jhoanna Myles Te of Bajada was crowned Sinag ng Dabaw (second runner-up). Maria Theresa Tan of Ulas, an AB Communication Arts graduate from the University of Immaculate Conception, is the third runner-up or the Pag-asa ng Dabaw, while Ateneo de Davao University law student Jazzel Therese Gomez was fourth runner-up.

Marianne Te also won Miss AirPhil Express. She can travel any Philippine Destination.

My bet was actually Jhoanna Myles Te. She is very bubbly also and I like her candid shots. But she failed to answer flawlessly during the Q and A round. I am still happy with Marianne, she is my 2nd bet.

PCSC 2012 Day 1: Going to the Venue

Wew. I was really excited to attend the opening for the Philippine Computing Society Congress 2012. Wew. I was really excited to attend the opening for the Philippine Computing Society Congress 2012. I actually prepared my to-bring things the night before at my hotel I stayed. I woke up 8:00 am and took my breakfast. I wasn’t worried that I will be late since the seminar starts at 2:00 pm. I actually stayed with a group. We are a total of ten peeps! We stayed in Rockpoint Resort Hotel which is 45 minutes away (It was near when you look at it on the google maps) to the venue of the seminar (De la Salle Canlubang, Binan, Laguna). But we never regretted that we stayed there because of the unlimited use of hot / warm water pool and the place is very peaceful and accommodating.

We headed out at exactly 11:30 am so that we can still take some pictures before the program starts. We took a jeepney and we asked the jeepney driver if he could take us to the rendezvous place for all participants (Caltex station). Then, he agreed. We were like weeeee. So we were so confident about the place, we haven’t noticed that we are on the wrong way. GOSH! We saw a Caltex station then we decided to stop there and examine the area. The jeepney driver said “Eto yung Caltex Canlubang” and he took off. Pffft! Eventually, thank god we arrived at the venue just a little bit late (How we arrived? It would be better if you ask me in person.. I will be delighted to share it to you hehehe)

To be continued...

This Means War: A marcospot review

Bang! Punch! Slap! Ratatatatatatt! Bang again! Punch again! Slap again!

Well basically that's what really happened in this movie . I just dont get the gist.

The story starts when the two federal agents Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) and Chris Pine (Star Trek) were grounded for a week. Without nothing to do they went looking for some girl to date with. Tom met this beautiful stunning girl in an online site. She played by Resse Witherspoon. This Means War tries to appeal to men with action, women with romantic comedy but director McG failed to make it and impress the audience.

The two bestfriends which are federal agents falls fo Reese

It is quite impressive in terms of romantic comedy. Reese's comedic acting is flawless. Together with her best friend at the movie played by Chelsea Handle they are like two broke women! WHAAT! Another strength of the movie is its the dynamic between the two leading men (as well as how Witherspoon plays off of the potential suitors). Hardy and Pine, who’ve both shown a knack in prior films for balancing charm with tough-guy muscle, have great chemistry – resulting in an entertaining rivalry that also allows for some genuinely kick-butt action beats.

Tom, Chris and Reese at the climax of the movie

It could be good for a date movie with your boyfriend and girlfriend. It is somewhat funny. I watched it last night with my boyfriend and we were just laughing and when the movie ends, we were like "Humana? Mao na to?" (is that it?).

Well if you want to watch movies that are more on guns, sex and comedy then better watch This Means War.

Check out the trailer:

Lazy Afternoon

"Sunday morning, rain is falling Steal some covers, share some skin".

Oh well, its Sunday and I am on my work (ppffft!). I thought it will be cool working on Sundays but right now I just can feel the coolness of it. Gosh! I just can't believe I accepted work on Sundays. My body will always tell me that it is Sunday and I should be resting.

How I wish that I am on a quiet farm listening to the birds chirping and the sound of the wind. Sometimes I think that if I will get old (hopefully not sooner!>), I will going to buy a small farm outside the city and live there. I still haven't think of getting married (It will never happen.. eeeewww! Not in a million years!!).

Anyways, I am here now in the computer laboratory overseeing my students finishing their activities. Blah blah blah!

In the final competition of the Miss Philippines Earth 2009, she was announced as one of the 10 semi-finalists who moved forward to compete for the title.
