2011 Best Dressed at The Oscars

The Oscars last night awarded the best among the bests in the film industry. As expected, Natalie Portman won the Best Actress Award for her performance in “Black Swan” while Colin Firth won the Best Actor for “The King’s Speech”.

Christian Bale was awarded the Best Supporting Actor Award and Melissa Leo, the Best Supporting Actress for their performances in “The Fighter”.

“The King’s Speech” was declared the Best Picture and “Toy Story 3”, the Best Animated Film.

Before the awarding ceremony, the stars walked down the traditional Red Carpet. In this year’s event, a lot of actresses were dressed to the nines. It was really difficult to select the Best Dressed so I just narrowed down my list to the ten best.

Enjoy the slide show and see if your favorite is among my chosen best…

Philippine environmentalists planted 64,096 trees in 15 minutes thus setting a world record for the most trees planted simultaneously. This was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records that everything was accurate and correct. The effort beat the previous Guinness world record of 50,033 trees planted in India last year.

Nearly 7,000 people helped in the mass planting of saplings in denuded forest and grassland in the eastern province of Camarines Sur on Wednesday.

More Burbank Snow Pictures

I discussed in my previous article how people in Burbank went nuts over snow falling in the area and snapped pictures, right?

Just found these photos in my email sent by my sister. Hey, sister! Didn’t you have enough snow when you lived in Amsterdam?

Just kidding. I knew you shared the fun and excitement with the entire the community just like I did…

Snow in Burbank

Today at around 5 pm, it snowed here in Burbank, CA. You might say, so what? Because it never snowed here before, not since 1949.

And because of this strange occurrence, the residents ran outside their houses to enjoy it. That included me.

After living in Edmonton, Alberta for more than six years, this should not have been a big deal anymore. I’ve seen and experienced worst winter in Canada.

So what was the excitement all about? It’s the joy of watching people experiencing winter fun, with children and parents alike throwing and dodging snow balls against each other, while others built snowmen.

Road Trip Pictures

This President’s Day long weekend, my family drove to San Francisco to attend my youngest brother’s housewarming party. Whenever I take long trips like this, I usually just put myself to sleep. But not this time. Why?

Thanks to my Iphone. Remember the article I published before about my love for my hands-me-down Iphone? I discussed in that article about the many apps that are installed on it but are never used? If not for this trip, I wouldn’t  know how awesome Photogene app is.

After dousing off from sleep, I decided to take some pictures along the way. Then I started using the Photogene app to enhance the pictures. I was really impressed with the results. I am definitely more in love with my Iphone.

Here are some of the before and after pictures…
