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 onscreen. This movie portray what each Filipino couple goes through in their attempt to the "happily ever after" stage of their fairy tale. The kids, the bickering in-laws, the jealousy and of course, the ever prevalent work-life balance.

If you should watch one movie this year, watch this movie. :) Gina Parreno is the aged Ruffa Mae Quinto :) She is so funny!

Bahay Kubo - the Pinoy Mano Po



What can I say about this movie? Marianne Rivera is beautiful! I can't stop staring at her... Gloria Romero is majestic and Maricel Soriano is aging gracefully.

This movie suffered from from too many characters. It's a movie with a very kind mother figure who can't turn down babies that were given by her neighbors and kababayans (ginawang candy ang mga bata, bow). The director wanted to give each one equal screen time thus we have a Pinoy Chopsuey Movie. Each kid had a separate story line, and we have 7 kids I think, so imagine the chaos! Eric Quizon was the father figure. He is a good actor but I think, no matter how good he is, Eric as a father or husband in a move will not work.. hahaha :)

It's not "Love Actually", the movie was not cohesive and in the end, I feel that the director thought, "Ooopps, no more film we have to end this." Thus the carolling and the dance number at the end. Ano dawz?????

Please don't watch this! hahaha :)

It's the New Year. Time for another transformation...

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
