It was a week of Chick Flicks


You are the One (Local Popcorn Romance)



Ok, I admit, I was not an avid fan of Sam Milby; reinforcing the statement "he can't be gay!". But who can resist that hot bod! Yes, we watched his latest movie flick with Toni Gonzaga "You are the One" and I walked off as a Sam Milby aficionado. He acts well for a first timer. He has intensity, he has good fashion sense and I must say it again, he has a gorgeous body! His bare upper torso and butt in boxers rivals that of Raphael Roselle in red briefs (whooppee, for his new Bench Ad, sizzling!).

The movie's storyline offers nothing new. But the execution was cute and romantic. There were scenes that were cheesiness to the next level but I had tears in my eyes. Toni Gonzaga played her part well. Her office uniform reminded me of bygone days when I was young and I had to wear a skirt as it was required. Those were the days!

Another treat - Gio Alvarez as the gay friend of Toni was so cute and funny.

Favorite lines:

Toni's Friend (played by the funny comedienne Eugene) – "E ano ba ang type mo sa lalaki?"

Sally Malasma (Toni Gonzaga) - "Gusto ko ng gwapo, mabait at HINDI BABAERO!"

Eugene - "Ah, bakla ang hanap mo!" Pointing to Gio. Gio gave a cute shudder, as being with Toni was not just incestuous but a violation of the Natural Laws of the Universe.

See it if you just need a nice kilig moment and a good laugh with girl/gay friends.

The Devil Wears Prada
(Ultimate Movie for 3 Groups - Gals, Gays and Guys with killer Fashionista Vibe)

Anne Hathaway is the new "Pretty Woman". Even if she's so gorgeous, she can certainly pull off the ultimate transformation from "ordinary girl with no oomph!" to "classy as in to the level of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's" In Princess Diaries that was her formula. She was certainly rightly cast as the fashion clueless who can't spell Dolce and Gabana and was transformed to an ultimate fashion chic by the good hearted gay man Nigel.

But the movie was all about Meryl Streep! Her method of acting (underacting - also used by Jacqueline Jose) gave the character of Priestley a dangerous, silent bullet. She was deadly when she utters these words with a deadpan expression, "That is all..." (with matching lubog na skin sa cheekbones). Shet, who wouldn't have suicidal thoughts with a boss like that! But it sure gave Andrea the challenge she needed.

I didn't like Andrea's boyfriend Nate! He was whinny, clingy and a baby! I wanted to protest why the ending turned out that way for those two but hey, it worked for some!

Who would I rather be - Andrea or Priestley? I don't have the right physical specifications to be an Andrea (I am not beautiful), I am meant to be a Priestley (with a beating heart). And in the words of Miranda Priestley - "Who wouldn't like a life like this?"

Watch this movie! This is Vogue in motion!

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…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
