Random Musings

I loved the movie, The Lake House, well, 98.87% of it. The ending ruined it for me. Keanu and Sandra's on-screen chemistry is really evident. They create cinema magic when they're together. I am a jaded old ass, but when I watched the movie, kilig to the max ang lolah! Keanu is so good looking even if he looks more mature now. Neo has grown up!

Some spoilers:

This movie brings up the time-space conundrum chorva that I had when I watched "The Terminator." If time is an element in the movie then, logic... fly out of the window. I am not a physics major but this might be possible given the additional dimensions of the universe patiently explained to me by Fafa Gerry.

Favourite Romantic Scene?

Yep, the picture says it all, a discussion about the novel Persuasion.

Memorable Line uttered by darling Keanu (Alex):
"She's more real to me than anything I've ever known... "

My favorite scene (overall):
When they seem to be talking together, but they don't occupy the same space. Whew!

Ok, I am trying to look for the Korean movie Il Mare in which this movie was based and I hope the ending is different. But gosh, how I love Keanu. Jazzie diba?

I want to live in a Lake house! This movie awoken in me the romance of the snail mail. I want to look for a penpal... hahaha :)


Musing of Dimsum Wasabi Keanubi

I can never understand why it started to be like this. What is happiness? Why do we purposely look for it, even at the detriment of losing everything we ever loved? I am still at a lost why we search for happiness, if we were always happy, what profit is there than that?

If you had only love, peace and happiness all the time, won't you get bored? Is this why we have the Fallen Angel? Did Lucifer purposely give up heaven to be in the darkness? But if he didn't step down from paradise, we could never have known the light, for how could we know the light if we never knew the dark. How could we know love if we didn't know hate.

Life is a salad of emotions, dash with the spice of confusion and puzzles but in the end all we have is a relish of a good dish with no overpowering ONE taste. Enjoy the journey; this life should be lived with abandon. If you want something, go for it. There is no limit to what you can achieve. It starts with the mind and sometimes, it's all in the mind.

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! :)
