Movie that made me wanna dance on the movie house and the bravery of the Foster

The last movie musical that made me stare at the screen without blinking was Moulin Rouge with its rich colors, great music and of course the beautiful Nicole Kidman. This woman is iridescent that it sometimes hurt to watch her onscreen. "Down with Love" was cute but not that substantial. "Chicago" was dark for me. But "Hairspray" was the first movie musical that left me squirming on my seat because I so loved to dance on the movie house no less.

The music was ear friendly, catching, up beat and it's like watching a reel musical. It has that feel. Of course, watching John Travolta playing a woman's role is truly fabulous. I realized that the young Zac Efron who played the role of Link (High School Musical teen idol) eeringly looks like the younger Travolta, with blue eyes and dark hair.

Kudos to Hairspray, this is I think the first movie I watched wherein the fat girl played by Nikky Blonsky (with boobs as big as her personality) got the boy :) Well, let's wait a few months and I think this girl will succumb to the Hollywood pressure of diets and the perfect figure.


Watch Hairspray! It's really glam! You'll love the music, and ooohh the dancing!

Jodie Foster.... the brave one...

I am looking forward to Jodie Foster's new movie "The Brave One". Yes, she's fit, she's lean and she has that look. I find her interesting because aside from being one of the few brainy actresses in Hollywood, she gives off that vibe that makes you back off and not mess with her unless...

In this movie, we will see her with a gun... hmmmm.. interesting. It has a femme fatal, vigilante plot. But I think, she should dye her hair a darker hue so that she will have that edgier look for these types of movies. Well, on her next movie perhaps? Michelle Rodriguez and Jodie Foster in one movie that will be truly worth the wait.

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.

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! :)
