New Barangay Chairman Won Via Coin Tossing

Quite funny but true. In Siargao Island, two candidates for Barangay Chairman garnered the same number of votes. It was really a deadlock for the two Barangay Chairman candidates. And how do they deal with it? They broke the deadlock with a coin tossing. Yup! According to Philippine Information Agency (PIA), coin tossing is a legal and acceptable way of settling deadlocks when candidates garner the same number of votes. Commissions on Elections (Comelec) and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) officials witnessed the coin tossing wherein Godofredo Sajol beat the incumbent barangay chairperson Apple Tiu. You can read the full report here.

So sad to loss the position just because of lack of luck. =p

Yup! The greatest man in the internet was a Filipino! I just recently read it over GM Tristan's Blog wherein he said that this guy with a very simply youtube video easily goes viral over the internet and was also featured by Ray William Johnson; a very prominent and well-known video blogger in the internet. Watch one of Ray William Johnson's episode of Equals Three (=3) ** wherein he featured this guy and declared as the greatest man in the internet:

Dragonica PH Warrior-Knight-Paladin-Guardian Skill Build

Updated: April 5, 2011

After the Reign of Frost Patch in Dragonica PH, I've changed (again) my preferred skill build for Warrior-Knight-Paladin-Guardian path. With the help of a popular Dragonica PH Guardian, Direi, here is the must-have skills that I need to maxed out and focus on when I reach Level 75 as Guardian:

Warrior's Must Have Skills:
Storm Blade Level 1: Creates a deadly whirlwind to hit mid air 6 enemy targets. Targets chosen at random. Maxed out this skill while you are at Warrior and Knight stage; then leave it to Level 1 when you reset your skill at your Paladin stage.

Sword Dance Level 5: Throws your sword, hitting 7 enemies and knocking them down. The higher the level, the longer range you can throw the sword to your enemies. Main catcher during PVP.

Hammer Crash Level 9: Smash enemies with a giant hammer with a 90% chance to stun enemies. Monster card needed to add additional skill level to this skill.

Knight's Must Have Skills:
Aerial Smackdown Level 1: From mid-air, dash into the ground launching 5 enemies into the air. This can be an alternative launcher (for Spin It Bear) in preparation for for Storm Blade skill.

Spear Jab Level 2: A 5 combo attack with a broom that knocks 7 enemies down. Best opening skill followed up by Cross Cut or Sword Dance.

Spin It Bear Level 5: Summon the spirit of the bear to cast a spinning attack. Though it require high amount of MP, but its really powerful, a good launcher asides from Aerial Smackdown.

Shield Mastery Level 9: Permanently increases Blocking Rate and Physical Defense. For Blocking Type Guardian, this is a must be skill. Need monster card to upgrade its maxed level.

Dodge Level 9: Temporarily increases Blocking Rate for 30 secs. A must-have skill to improve with Shield Mastery. Need monster card to upgrade its maxed level.

Impervion Level 5: Although Impervion has been nerf in this patch, this is still helpful most specially in Battle Squares and Emporia Wars.

Paladin's Must Have Skills:
Joint Break Level 2: Attack 6 enemies at their joints to decrease their attack and movement speed by 40% for 5 seconds and slightly launch them into the air.

Weapon Suspension Level 2: Attack up to 6 enemies and block their attack action for 5 seconds.

Weapon Crasher Level 2: Attack up to 6 enemies, damaging them and decreasing their physical and magical attack power by 20% for 10 seconds.

Cross Cut Level 5: Attack 12 enemies with a powerful crosscut and knock them down. A good combo skills with Spear Jab and Sword Dance.

Iron Skin Level 5: Increase physical defense by +430.

Barricade Level 5: Transforms into a combat cop which cannot attack but has 55% higher defense. When this skill is used, 5 debuffs are removed and a level 5 slow heal is applied for 30 seconds.

Cockroach Life Level 5: If cast when HP is lower than 25% of maximum, it will instantly return 40% of your max HP and increase physical and magical defense power by 90% for 70 seconds.

Time Reverse Level 4: Toggles a buff that decreases casting time and cooldown time by 1.6 seconds by consuming 24 MP per second. (Level 5 Time Reverse has no difference on Level 4 Timer Reverse; they both reduce casting time and cooldown by 2 seconds.)

** I'm still practicing how to make good combo using Weapon Suspension, Joint Break, and Weapon Crasher with other Skills for PVP and PVE purposes.

Guardian's Must Have Skills:

Rolling Ground Level 5: Move quickly, and spin rapidly while moving forward in a straight line. Attacks up to 6 enemies 13 times.

Ascending Dragon Lv.1 : Ride an ascending dragon to launch standing or mid-air enemies with 6 rapid attacks. At skill level 5 fallen enemies can be hit.

Dragon Dive Level 1: With the power of the dragon, perform a diving attack with a powerful spin. Attack up to 6 enemies 6 times, with the final attack launching your enemies.

** I just leave the 2 awakening skills to level 1 since it seems I will rarely use it.

I hope this guide will be more useful than before for Warrior-Knight-Paladin-Guardian skill build.

Special thanks to Rico Verzonilla a.k.a. Direi for helping me with this build.

Astig Na Graduation Speech

One of my friends in Facebook had shared this speech to me. This is a speech delivered by a La Sallian engineer during one of the graduation ceremonies at the UP College of Engineering. His speech is not like the typical speech you might already heard or will be hear during any graduation ceremonies. Here are some excerpts of his speech that really strucked me so much:

...Ang speech na ito ay hindi ko ginawa para i-acknowledge ang paghihirap ng ating mga magulang sa pagpapaaral satin. Hindi ko din ito ginawa para maghayag ng political statement, o kumbinsihin kayo na huwag umalis sa bansa at tulungan itong makaahon. Ang speech na ito ay para sa mga normal na estudyante na kagaya ng may may-ari ng transcript na hawak ko, dahil madalas, wala talagang pakialam ang unibersidad sa mga achievements nila. May mga awards na gaya ng “Summa Cum Laude”, “Best Thesis Award” at “Leadership Award.” Pero ni minsan, hindi pa ako nakakakita ng unibersidad na nagbigay ng “Hang-on and managed to graduate despite nearly getting kicked-out during his academic stay” award....

...Kaya ngayong graduation, ang speech na ito ay inaaalay ko para sa mga estudyanteng lumagpak, muntik-muntikan nang masipa o yung sa lahat ng paraang pwede, ginawa na para lang makatapos. Gagawin kong patas ang mundo para sa inyo kahit isang araw lang. Kahit ano pa ang sabihin ng ibang tao, kesyo kasalanan mo man na pangit ang marka mo o muntik ka nang makick-out, saludo ako sa hindi mo pagtigil sa pag-aaral. Saludo ako na may lakas ka ng loob na harapin pa rin ang mundo kahit alam mong hindi ito magiging patas sa iyo. Saludo ako na kahit pangit ang transcript mo, taas noo ka pa rin ngayong graduation at proud na proud sa sarili mo....

...This is a rebellion. I raise my middle finger to every professor, over-achiever, naysayer and detractor THAT TOLD ME THAT I CAN'T MAKE IT. I raise my middle finger to every valedictory or graduation speech that only gratifies the university, those who were achievers in school or those who gratify the country when it’s supposed to be the graduate’s moment of glory. You are supposed to acknowledge EVERYONE. Even those who failed many times.
Kaya sa inyong mga graduates na medyo hindi maganda ang marka, para sa inyo ito. Kung kinaya ko ito, kaya niyo rin to. Imposibleng hindi....
