I spent last weekend on a houseboat in Lake Berryessa to celebrate my sister Ade’s 30th Birthday! It was my first time for a houseboat and you know my sister had to do it up big pimpin’ style, so she got the MEGA, 70 foot boat with a jacuzzi and slide off the top!
Of course we started the adventure with a champagne toast…
My sister ADE looked ravishing to say the least…I need to get on her workout plan!!!
All my siblings were aboard for the ride, a couple cousins from LA and a handful of my sister’s friends also made the voyage… **ADE has a thing for wigs and she has an alter ego, “CoCo.”
Here’s a look down the slide…I went down one time! The current in this spot was actually pretty strong, so you know…I didn’t want to get “carried” away! lol
We also did some karaoke singing on ADE”s magic mic, it’s one of her favorite things to do…so why not, right? We’re on a boat. In this picture (below), Alison is donning the “Snookie” wig…
All in all a very cool experience and the lake was so serene and empty really, so we had the lake pretty much to ourselves..and the weather was excellent. The one thing that trips me out though is that they turned this big boat over to us, and we had to drive it and anchor it, etc… UH, no one of the boat had EVER done that before..IN LIFE!! haha So, there was a bit of an adventure getting it (re) anchored in the dark…but we survived and it gives me a story to tell!! The peaceful morning view was priceless…
Here are a few more of the segments I’ve been voicing over for the Miami HEAT…the Karaoke package is a MUST see, with the Miami HEAT players singing up a storm! From James Jones and Michael Beasley singing their version of Usher’s You Got It Bad; to Dwyane Wade and Dorell Wright teaming up for R. Kelly’s I Believe I can Fly; then Daequan Cook doing his rendition of Beyonce’s Single Ladies; and finally a team effort on Boyz II Men’s End of the Road!
And next time you attend a Miami HEAT home game listen up, you might just hear my voice!
I was completely entertained when I watched the youtube videos of Manny Pacquiao on Jimmy Kimmel from last night’s show! I mean he is just “SO FILIPINO” …and I don’t mean that in a bad way because that is my heritage, but this guy is an UBER STAR in boxing and of course in the Philippines, but he’s pretty non-chalant and sort of seems oblivious to his celebrity! But getting back to the “SO FILIPINO” part…singing – Filipino’s LOVE to sing and dance, the stereotype is karaoke at family parties and having a magic mic! In Manila there are stages for singing and dancing at the malls and many public places, variety shows on the weekend (the Filipino versions of Sabado Gigante) and have you ever watched MTV’s America’s BEST Dance crew!?!? Up until the last season most of the crews had at least one, if not majority Fil-Am’s dancing with them. So to see Manny singing on national (late night) TV …it’s just funny to me! The song he picked too…lol
Seriously, Pacman seems SO amused to be on the show, and I wasn’t sure if Kimmel was just catching him off guard with questions or if he was just excited to be on American TV…just listen to him laugh, very cute! At any rate, come November 14 ….GO PACQUIAO!! Once he gets past Cotto…I’m hopeful for the eventual fight we all want to see – Pacquiao vs. Mayweather!!
