Filipino Movies at this time of the year...

A tradition that we keep in the family is to watch a Manila Filmfest movie every year. It's a guilty pleasure on my part, I will grudgingly tell my mom that I don't like to watch but deep inside I am looking forward to the sibling okrayan at the movies. Yep, I like to talk to my brother after the movie and laugh over what we have watched... the melodramatic moments, and the primitive special effects.

This year, I watched two movies - one (Sakal) I definitely loved and the other (Bahay Kubs) made me dizzy at the end and gave me a splitting headache.

Sakal - sakal



The Judy-Anne/Ryan Agoncillo (thanks Ochie!) duo really made a killing at the box-office this year. This was a sequel to the funnier Kasal - Kasal. Yep, the first one is better, but this movie can stand on its own. It's a movie worth your while.

In this movie, we get to envy Judy Anne's slim figure. I must admit, she is looking more beautiful every time I see her onscree…
Home...

When everything seems to be in a topsy turvy state and you want to ground yourself... this is cliche but true, you just need to come home. Home to your family, your childhood residence and just do what you considered boring then but can give you the utmost comfort.

I am just lazing here at home with my mama (just had another ESP moment with her), my father, silently brooding in the background (may pinagmanahan akitch) and my bro, snobbishly reading his book. It's been quite awhile and I feel content and happy.

The usual things I do at home that I missed are playing the guitar, just reading non-stop with the stereo playing loudly on the background, hearing my mom and dad argue .. wehehehe... over... sauce? Hayyy... and of course, watching Eat Bulaga.. hahaha :)

When the world doesn't make sense and you feel that you're in a whirlwind of activities, just go home and everything will be fine...

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! :) AMEN!
Life's lessons in a year...

Before the year 2007 started, I was watching the movie "Rent". I liked the movie but never in my wildest dreams thought that I could also be given an opportunity to experience a year full of Seasons of Love.

Yes, this is an EMO post so I am giving straight laced people out there a warning! hahaha...

There are a lot of lessons to be learned and a lot of catching up to do. First off, I learned the not so subtle differences between "I Like You.", "Love you" and "I Love You". I am turning 30 next year and I am still at age 13 in terms of this. Sometimes I think, I am too old for this. But better be 30, rather than 40 right? :)

Trust, now that's something new. My friends know, that I have strong ESP. Sometimes the perky one asks the question in her head and after thinking it, I will answer it. I thought it was spoken out loud but it was all in her head.

I can sometimes read minds especially that of my friends and fa…
Let the gluttony begin...

Christmas season na! Loosen your belts to make space for food and boooze (and more booze)!

Paminsan-minsan lang ako mag-project sa camera.. so pagbigyan na.. :)

Beer and friends. what more can you ask for?



The party gang...



Me and the girls...




AMEN!
Dragged

I have been a shopaholic's sidekick for quite some time. Some of my friends are consummate believers of Adam Smith's philosophy... "I shop, therefore I am..." My ass has always been acquainted with the so called "boyfriend" seat. So, for me, I have this mindset, that shopping is a chore.. waaaahh.

Just this morning, I was dragged to the lingerie section and the makeup area of the mall (que horror!- they exist). While the perky one tries on different shades of lipstick (which for me all look the same), I try to amuse myself by counting how many variants of orange lipsticks there are... juicy orange, light orange, etc... truly amazing...

I am fascninated how they can determine the right shade of color perfect for their complexion. And I have this puzzled look when I learned that when you're acidic, the color of lipstick changes from brown to red when you put it on your lips, huh? And I was shocked when the perky one tried the tester lipsticks! How m…
Ouch...

This was dedicated to me by someone... Is too much self preservation the path to self destruction? Bato na ba tayo mga kapatid?
