Beach Capital in Natal Brazil - Ponta Negra Beach

Ponta Negra Beach is undoubtedly the most well-known tourist beaches capital in the city of Natal, Brazil. Before the place was developed due to tourism, Ponta Negra Beach was used to be a fisherman's village and other working residents during 90's. When foreigner investors recognized this beautiful place can be perfect for tourism industry, they started to develop this place for business such as great lodges, eating places and bars for parties at night. Since it is 4 kilometers long and considered as the large beach in the city, this will be a perfect place for having a nice walk with a chat along with families and friends and at the same time ideal for getting some exercises especially in the morning.

Since Ponta Negra has attracted travelers and tourists from local to international; hotels and Pousadas Em Natal are being built near the place. Some residents who live nearby converted their houses into restaurants, coffee shops, and any form of business that is in demand for tourists. Few spots of real estate properties left and most of its prices are now expensive.

Just in case, there are things that you might encounter problems when you get there at Ponta Negra Beach. If you were bringing your car, looking for parking space might be a problem. Parking space is only allowed along the street that is at the side of the shore. Some parking spaces are reserved for taxi cabs, police force vehicles, etc. There are only some exclusive parking space available there but there will an additional charge and give no security. With this, it might affect your budget during your travel.

In Natal, you can easily find special hotels along the beach shores and Pontalmar Praia Hotel is one of them and it is situated on the northern part of Brazil. It a newly constructed hotel beautifully designed and perfect for travelers or tourists who love beaches. Pontalmar Praia Hotel is just a step from the beach and every year more tourists come here to celebrate holiday vacation with friends and families especially Christmas, anniversaries, banquets, etc. This 4-star Hotel location is indeed an advantage and ideal for beachgoer tourists for it is only a few meters away from the beach and surrounded by shopping areas, bars, restaurants and nightclubs nearby.

Learn Tango in Buenos Aires

At present, tango is one of the most noted and sought-dances around the world because of its sensuality, magic, passion, particularly involving those who practice or just set eyes on it. Fortunate travelers in Buenos Aires invite you to find out the amazing experience they have. There are a lot of ways to learn tango in Buenos Aires and I will try it here to describe some of them.

Various Hostels Buenos Aires offers weekly classes of tango since many of their guests want to learn tango. You can set schedules directly with the teachers but if you want to learn more about tango, just set schedule to them and they will coordinate to programs that will make you feel ready, go out and dance perfectly.

The most exemplary milongas (places or events where tango is danced) are sited near Almagro, since tango boom in recent times; milongas are increasing throughout the city offered by some Hotels and Hostels.

If you stay in La Rocca Hostel, Milonga El Beso is only 100 meters away. While The Chip, one of the voguish spots, is just 10 minutes away if you are staying in Hostels Buenos Aires Palermo Rocca.

Another choice is to visit different bars that are close related to tango and customs. One of the most renowned is the Café Tortoni (Avenida de Mayo 725) which happened to be already part of the Buenos Aires culture. It is marked to record the large number of paintings, drawings and sculptures of history embedded walls. Those who are interested in it, I recommend Hostels Buenos Aires Rocca Center, which is situated just 500 meters from the Café Tortoni.

If you like something more intimate, have the choice to visit a tango show. They are just in the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. The setting usually begin with a tango class then they will offer a dinner party accompanied by a show, from dancing to big theatrical productions, including the changes of clothing, live bands and other types of performance.

The dinner parties are picked out, as required, like meat and wine. The most notable services that they offer include Sabor a Tango, Full Tango, Tango Porteo, Madero Tango, among others. Many offer a cheaper alternative, which is urged for those who only want to see the show and save some cash.

If you’re ready to tango, you can ask one of the Hostels in Buenos Aires by writing an email or if you stay already at one of their hostels, just go to the reception and they will assist you.

Congratulations Gwendolyn Ruais!

1st Princess Miss World 2011 Gwendolyn Ruais
Congratulations 1st Princess Miss World 2011 Gwendolyn Ruais! I guess Philippines got robbed again by a non-English speaking delegate just like what happened to Shamcey Supsup on Miss Universe 2011, however, Gwen did a great job! Here's her winning answer:

"To be Miss World is my dream job, and I say job because it has a lot of responsibilities but there's nothing I love more than communicating with other people. As Miss World you get to use your potential and your voice to help people all around the world, and what is more wonderful than doing what you love by helping others." -- Gwendolyn Ruais

In my opinion, international beauty pageants should require English speaking language to make it fair and it's an international language. Contestants with interpreters gives them advantage of having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Among the seven finalists, only Venezuela answered her native language and the rest were speaking English. Do you think it's fair?

Allison Harvard - Underwater

Allison Harvard
I begin to notice this big-eyed porcelain doll look alike girl on a television show, American Next Top Model All Star Cycle 17, that she has something special far beyond modelling. I am not a fan of ANTM and I'm beginning to watch this show just because of Allison and her story is quite interesting which made me watch the previous Cycle 12 where she came out. Underestimated because she don't know how to walk the runway and you can really hear other contestants laughing at her. She said that she auditioned because was into art and photography. She really improved a lot, she has a high-fashion look and appeal, versatility (she can be gothic, weird, innocent, fresh, scary, nerd, cute, sexy), a lovely and humble personality, and took great pictures to top it all off but ended runner up during her cycle and many were disappointed of the results.

During the recent last episode of ANTM Cycle 17 aired last November 2, they made music lyrics and Allison was having a hard time because she's not into music thingy that made her worried and might be the next eliminated. Rapper Game was guest to that episode and assisted the models to make their own music video. It was so obvious that Game really admired Allison's weirdness and uniqueness that made him say, "Her face is a piece of art" which I agree as well.

During making Allison's music video, I was kinda relieved that she won't be eliminated and Game enjoyed so much while watching her. She was the first one to call out because the judges were very impressed with her music video:

I am really in love and proud of her that she made it but I guess her father whom she dedicated this song was more proud of this.

You can download her music in mp3 format "Allison Harvard - Underwater" here.

Charice's Finale Scene on Glee Season 2

This is Charice's finale scenes from Glee's 2nd Season Finale with Lea Michele. She has very much improved her acting skills and I would think that filming 'Here Comes The Boom' helped her a lot in this riveting scene with Lea Michele.

Interestingly, the first scene they did was in the bathroom where they belt out "Telephone" and Rachel Berry (Lea Michele's character) was mad over her beautiful and powerful singing competence.

You can also listen her Glee studio version of "As Long As You're There".

Ideal Cheap Hotels Guidelines

Booking into cheap hotels can lessen your expenses. However, it can still be difficult to decide where to stay even though you have gathered all the travel information you need. I’ll give you some guidelines how to find an ideal cheap hotel that won’t affect your budget.

When you check the internet, I bet that you will see various kinds of accommodation to choose from. You can take a look for a discounted room at an expensive or five-star hotel. If you are looking for a cool and fun place, try to stay in a hostel. If you want to explore more and feel the nature, camping will be the cheapest choice and frequently the most unforgettable accommodation.

Accommodation rates depend on the occasion of the year and fall or winter seasons which offer more discounts. Try to visit the place you want to travel during off-peak seasons for the reason that you can have the advantages which there are only small numbers visiting the tourist attractions you want to go to.

When you book an accommodation, remember to check what the other benefits offered and the facilities. Timing of your tour is the secret here. Make sure you can book a room in advance if you are traveling in a peak season. In contrast, if you are going in an off-peak season, your type of room perhaps are not needed for advance booking anymore. You can also get an advantage if you visit their websites that offers discounts especially if it’s already a last minute deals.

Icarus, the Phoenix

The latest Icarus, the Phoenix, is here in DotA 6.70 map version. Icarus is a Sentinel strength type hero built. Some would say that this new hero is imba as well as Ymir, the Tuskarr. Perhaps they will make some changes of this hero for the next map update.

Icarus, The Phoenix

Here’s his background story: “Ancient scriptures spoke of seven sacred emanations of light, and of their convergence in great conflict. The collision of these rays upon the mortal realm created a pyre of the highest purity, giving birth to the mythical Phoenix. As a manifestation of divine flames, Icarus can discharge either flames of death and destruction, or of life and healing. The concentrated beam of energy that he can emit can incinerate whole armies from across the battlefield. Unafraid to utilize his own life-force in order to vanquish his enemies, Icarus can also harness the direct power of the sun to create a stellar explosion.”

Icarus Dive (D)

Phoenix dives forward in an arc with a fixed distance in the targeted direction, dealing damage and disarming any units he comes into contact with, and then orbiting back to his original position. Phoenix is magic immune during the dive but not in physical attack. You can stop the Icarus Dive manually by pressing the hotkey (D) again. Icarus Dive is helpful in escaping or run after the enemies.

Fire Spirits (F)
Born out of his own life force, Icarus creates 4 fire spirits to fly alongside him. Each spirit slowly grows in power and can be used to damage his enemies or heal his allies. It costs 10% of your current HP to cast. Fire Spirits heal allied units and damages enemy units in a 400AoE around an exploding spirit. You can manually cast it to an ally for healing or to a foe for receiving damage by pressing the hotkey (F) again.

Target Fire Spirits (F)
Targets a fire spirit towards a unit. It can only be used when Fire Spirits were called.

Sun Ray (R)
Drawing from his own inner fire, Icarus expels a huge beam of light at the cost of his own life energy. The beam slows and damages enemies for a percentage of their life. It costs 25% of current HP to activate. It will automatically stop if Phoenix lacks mana, casts Supernova, or if he is stunned or silenced but it doesn’t matter anyway because it has no cooldown. Phoenix loses the ability to move and to attack but by pressing (E), it allows Phoenix to move in the direction of his Sun Ray.

Sun Ray Movement (E)
Allows Phoenix to move in the direction of his Sun Ray. It can only be used when Sun Ray is unleashed.

Supernova (V)
The Phoenix willingly ends his current life for the chance to be reborn. Transforms into a burning sun that scorches enemies within 1000 range. The sun can be attacked by enemy heroes; if it is destroyed, the Phoenix dies as well. However, if the sun survives for 6 seconds all enemies in range will be stunned and the Phoenix will return to life fully regenerated. During the clash, the Phoenix should be protected. It will die if Supernova Ball is being hit with physical attack and loses HP.
