I have tasted a lot of chocolate cakes and I must say that nothing compares to the chocolatey taste of Mernel's chocolate cakes. They don't cost as much as Craving's or Conti's but they taste so much better. Those who don't live in Laguna or haven't been there may not have heard of this cake house. But, it's really famous in Los BaƱos, Laguna where I spent my college years.

The cake house is located near UPLB. So, if you happen to pass by that area, you will miss half of your life if you don't buy one of Mernel's chocolate cakes. Seriously, just try one.

I always try to buy one during special occasions.

Rin on the Rox will finally appear on Ellen DeGeneres' show

I'm not really a YouTube fan because it's on the "not allowed" sites list at both my full time and part time jobs. However, since I was able to "end process" the internet surveillance program on my PC, I was able to discreetly view a couple of Rin on the Rox vids.

I know that Rin on the Rox will eventually appear on Ellen DeGeneres' show since she has invited them there herself. The question is - when? I really want to see them on Ellen. Honestly, I want to know how they sound like when they're not singing...inside the bathroom (although Ellen has invited them to sing in the studio's bathroom). I guess they'll do two songs, one in a bathroom and another on the set. Hopefully, they'll sing on the set!

Today, I saw a YouTube update of them appearing on Ellen on February 3 at 4 PM. Hmmm....4 PM what? Is that Manila Time? I want to know if I can watch it live. So, I googled it and stumbled upon their MySpace site ( One of the posts say:

See your local listing for Ellen on NBC For the local Bay Area, it starts at 4:00 pm on NBC

Just the info I need. But, I still need to know exactly what time they're gonna be on - in local time. So, I went to an online time zone converter and found out exactly when they're gonna be on - Manila time (thanks to

Yes. I can watch it at the office, thank you Slingbox. (Sorry, no streaming allowed.)

Now, all I need to know is which local NBC I can watch it on. Yikes! Dunno if we can get NBC Bay Area. Bummer. But, it should be on any local NBC, right? Hmmm...I hope.
