And the magic continues???

I didn't watch this movie on the first day. I was adamant that I should only watch this movie on Movie night (one of our company's perks -- thankful am I). I really loved Harry Potter III (Prisoner of Azkaban)-both the movie and the book so I guess I wasn't expecting much from the fourth movie... only effects, effects, and of course beautiful boys.

It didn't fail me on these aspects. The effects were magical... as if I was transported in Rowlin's magical realm. I liked the hairstyles, the look and feel of the movie and the innate "unrealness" of the surroundings. The castle's architecture and the ground landscape were derived from the third movie (i.e. the long bridge). It's a mix-match of the previous movies. The goblet of fire was amazing.

I liked the mix of actors. The foreign look of the students from the other two schools was a welcome relief (loving the fire breather). I liked the eclectic uniforms. And the Yule Ball was... well... a little cheesy... reminscent of a JS promenade or the UN Parade of Nations as my brother would put it. Chang was beautiful, Cedrick was so pretty! and Krum was delicious!

A few surprises: Neville was a revelation! Of all the young actors, he caught my eye because of the depth he has shown. He has many scenes in this movie (this might be an influence on the part of Rowlin). Maybe, Neville will have a big role to play in the coming 7th book. He might be the Wormtongue of his group or the BIG surprise (in the prophecy, the day of birth of the one who will challenge Voldemort was given... Harry and Neville shared that same birth date...hmmm...)...
Ralph Fienes is the perfect Voldemort! He is so menacing! I am excited on how many scenes he will have on the upcoming movies.

All in all, I was not that disappointed. It was alright. Just right... the beautiful boys made the movie fun for me! Cedrick!!! Krumm!!!! You're just the right age my lads.... hihihi...

Ay, lastly... Fleur! What's with that high pitch screaming inside that maze! Ghastly, sexist! Oh well... life...

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.

Baby boom

The first time we settled here in Melbourne we got to know a lot of fellow Pinoys who are living on a different environment. We joined them in making Australia our second home. In each gathering, we try to get to know them better and reconnect.

We didn't know how it happened. But after 2 years, suddenly each couple had their own babies. Don't get me wrong, babies are cute but it was just surprising to note that parties suddenly turn into an event similar to family reunions back home.

Instead of blood relatives, you get to see friends and their kids grown before your eyes. It's not the gray hair that makes me feel old.  It's the babies and kids that are now walking and developing into little adults.

I can't complain. For some reason, it is good for now, to look and enjoy kids from afar. It's fun to carry them for a few minutes compared to living with a baby 24/7. It must be hard. I really commend couples with kids and having to work for a living at th…
Family Vacation - Dec 2013 - Davao

In my 30+ years of existence, we never had a family vacation outside of Luzon. Last December 2013, mama, my bro and I went to Davao to "train" mama to ride a plane. I think she liked it and it's going to be the first of many travels for her.

 I miss them but I am looking forward to our next adventure! :)
