Aussie Adventures part 1

I find the Central Coast to be a little bit more conservative than Sydney. It's more family-oriented. It reminds me of Vancouver. Their activities are weekend picnics at the beach, family bonding at the park, etc. What I absolutely love about it is the fact that the roads are wide open. What they call traffic is the light traffic in the Philippines. These guys have no idea what real traffic looks like.

Initially, we stayed in a condo-type apartment in The Entrance. The place is right in front of the beautiful lake, a few blocks from The Entrance Beach and the rows of restaurants and shops. It is a popular destination for tourists. There's pelican feeding every 3:30 PM. There are great restaurants and pubs around  the area. You can even go fishing too,

Unfortunately, we arrived right in the middle of winter. Temperature reached 5 degrees one day. My allergy was acting up and I was miserable for the first two weeks of the trip.

X-Men: Days of Future Past Questions!

If you've seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, I'm sure you have a few questions to ask the people behind the film. Without a doubt, it is the best film of the entire X-Men franchise but that doesn't mean it's necessarily the one without flaws.

Here are some of your questions:

1. Why the hell is Professor X alive?

In 'X-Men: The Last Stand', there was scene where he was teaching a class, explaining how it is possible to transfer one's consciousness into someone else's body. The post-credits scene reveal that he transferred his own consciousness to a body being treated by Moira Mactaggert.

Also worth noting is that Moira's character in X3 is a doctor - in 2005. How could she be alive during X-Men: First Class as a CIA agent?

2. How did Magneto get his powers back?

In X3, beast injected Magneto with 'The Cure' that turns mutants into ordinary humans. It was presumed that he lost his powers. However, in the scene before the end credits, we saw a chess piece move without him touching it. A little weird isn't it? It's either the serum didn't work or the mutant where it came from had the power to undo the effects of his DNA.


3. Surprise! Jean Grey is alive! Does this mean that the whole Phoenix episode in X3 didn't happen? Will we finally see the REAL storyline of the Phoenix and The Dark Phoenix (which is my favorite X-Men storyline)?

4. How did Wolverine get his metal claws back?

One really has to analyze this in a chart to know the answers. Clearly, The Wolverine happened sometime in the future. If his claws were cut by the Silver Samurai, why does he have his metal claws back on X-Men DOFP? More importantly, how did he get them back? Another adamantium infusion?

Care to add more of your questions?

X-Men: Days of Future Past Final Trailer is here

This is THE biggest gathering of superheroes! The final trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past features a whole lot of goodies. It looks like Rogue really ended up in the cutting room. But if the rumors about the script are true, she may have a short but very, very important scene in the movie.

Biggest Loser Winner sparks controversy after losing 60% of body weight!

I watch 'The Biggest Loser' to get inspired to sustain my personal weight loss journey. However, the recent victory of Rachel Frederickson is more worrisome than inspiring. She lost a whopping 155 lbs - 60% of her original body weight and she looked so fragile during the live finale.

Cameras caught the shocked faces of TBL trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels. They clearly looked very worried about Rachel. To be fair, Rachel was clearly the winner since day 1. She's the most hardworking person in the ranch and won so many challenges. She reminded me of last season's winner Danni. However, I think they took it a little too far.

Both Bob and Jillian didn't want to comment because they said they did not work with Rachel at any point in the competition. Dolvett's statement, on the other hand was rather vague but quite telling. He said Rachel's journey to being healthy is not over yet as if saying that he thinks Rachel went a little crazy with the weight loss.

On the other hand, I absolutely LOVE the way the other contestants looked after their weight loss. My favorite is Tumi, who won the $100,000 for beating the other competitors for the at home prize.
