"Love, believe, survive, LOVESTRUCK! "

Image hosted by

I haven't watched a movie in an air-conditioned, lulling me to sleep, air-freshener-filled movie theatre for quite some time. And after, a long hiatus (a month is soooo long), my friend Laurie and I watched Lovestruck! (can't help myself, I have to put an exclamation point there).

"Together forever, La la la la (forgot the lyrics)". This is a circa 1986 movie. A movie with a production number at the start and at the end as the credits are rolling, think "Petrang kabayo, or horsey-horsey tigidig-tigidig". Well, so much about the okray.... this movie is fun to watch. A light movie that will make you laugh and make you forget your worries for awhile.

Loved the gay character of Rainier Castillo (hayy.. really a sucker for gay men). I think Mike Tan has a cute smile. My favorite writer Jessica Zafra was parodied in this movie. Jolina Magdangal played the part of a book author/columnist. She and Jenalyn have those classic Zafra glasses but Jolina is a "Romance" columnist. I think Jessica will rather eat salad or drop dead than write a romance column.

I loved Jolina in this movie. She played different characters such as "negrong bangkero" black boatman, Ai-Ai look-a-like, Betty La Feya, etc. She was hilarious!

If you just like to be entertained, go catch this film! Just don't set any expectations and indulge in the guilty pleasure!

Narnia Experience

I so love the Chronicles of Narnia! I just finished the second book (there are seven in the series, just like Harry potter) "The Lion, the witch and the Wardrobe". It is so good! If I am going to teach a child about faith and Jesus Christ, I would read to him/her this book! If only evangelicals can teach faith in a creative manner such as C.S. Lewis. Well, this is just my opinion anyway, but the way the "Sacrificial Lamb" was depicted in this book is not preachy, not "holier-than-thou"; just a fairy tale-like story that can be easily explained to a toddler. Simplicity is really a virtue.

Can't wait to finish the rest.

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.
