Which Sports Car Are You?

I am a Ferrari 360 Modena! As if we can be defined by a sports car :-) but admittedly it's fun taking this wacky quiz...Try it yourself!

I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it.

"Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

My One and Only Tennis Champ

It has been over 10 days since Justine Henin announced her retirement from WTA. But upto now I still feel sad about it because truth be told, I only watch tennis because of her. Now the French Open does not seem exciting at all. It is because of her human spirit, her sheer determination to defeat all odds and making her victorious all the time that has made her a true inspiration -- an inspiration not just in tennis but in life even.

I support, though, her decision to retire. In fact, I admire her for it. Her reason for stopping is because the passion to win is gone. This speaks a lot about her character. If she continues to play without being able to give it her all then she will just short change herself and her fans. This goes to show that this lady truly knows herself. I salute her! ALLEZ JUSTINE!!!

2008 Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs

This is the first time Daily Crossovers joins Influential Blogger's Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs. This the second consecutive year that Influential Blogger is doing this writing project. I have attended last year's awarding ceremony and was so pleased to get to know the new faces emerging in the Philippine blogosphere so I promised myself I will send my list this 2008.

I have some favorite blogs that I would have included in my list but I have to stick to the rules - only blogs that started last July 2007 are qualified to be nominated. So I referred to my Entrecard dashboard, tried to recall the blogs mentioned by my friends, consulted the current list at Influential Bloggers to complete my list. Most of my nominees come from genres close to my heart -- mom blogs, e-commerce, travel, fashion, food. My other nominees made me smile or just plainly intrigued me. Most are from the Philippines, some are not. So here goes...

  1. You Got Tech
  2. Anak ni Kulapo
  3. VintageGent's Menswear Daily
  4. Blissfully Domestic
  5. Money Saving Mom
  6. Manila Foodistas
  7. Blog ni Inday
  8. Dante Remoto
  9. Biyahilo
  10. Gentleman's Gadget

    It's your turn...Nominate your own picks. By the way,, my favorite full-service online gift shop, is one of the sponsors of this year's Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs.
