The Best Movie I've Seen this year! (Across the Universe)

If there is a band that influenced me the most, it is the Beatles especially John Lennon. When I heard that there is a restaurant in Greenbelt 5 called John and Yoko, I had to go there even if I had to feel intimidated by the members of the upper-uppa strata of Philippine society. Anyway, I digress.

Pogs was gushing about this movie since last year and when I heard the soundtrack, I told him that my favourite song is "I wanna hold your hand..." I swear, I didn't know the story behind the song in the movie at that time :)

The movie touched a sensitive chord. It featured a lot of songs by the Beatles sung with such emotion and panache by the main characters. TV Caprio who played Prudence in the movie was a Filipina (every main character in the movie came from songs from the band - Jude, Max (Maxwell's hammer), Lucy, and Prudence (Dear Prudence)). She was the one who sung my fave song "I wanna hold your hand..." Although I didn't like the way the director treated her character (why does every lesbian or gay character had to have a pathetic unrequited love problem? :) ).

Cinematography was great! The story was simple but sweet and if there was a movie that is edible, it was this film. It was sumptuous and a delight to the senses! It's a movie about love, friendship and everything in between.. haha :)

Go grab a deebeedee copy of this movie! It's now on my list of re-watchable movie musicals (Rent, Moulin Rouge, and Sound of Music :) ).

" All you need is love, love... Love is all you need ..."

All you need is love... (grabeh.. wahhh..reminded me of the last public performance of the Beatles sa rooftop!)

Syempre.. etoh. winner! :)

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.

Originally uploaded by amazonangbading. Last Saturday, I woke up earlier than usual for a weekend morning. Texted Dahon and Coultrophobic Clown, my head filled with excitement because I am going to have my own... I-PUD!!!

Dahon and I went store to store in search of the Holy Grail --- I-pod (green for her, blue for me... and with a SOCK!).

First Store --- No more blue or green 4 Gig I-pods, and No socks....

Second Store --- Yehey, there is a green 4 Gig Ipod, there's a blue one as well... and with socks! But alas, Citibank Credit card not accepted. grrr... (sayang, cute pa naman the guy who assisted us.. oh well)..

Third Store --- Boring Store, All of the above as Second Store (but the guy wasn't cute... hihihi)

Fourth Store --- There's a 4 Gig Green I-pod, no blue one.. Oh well, I can take any color... as long as it's not PINK! But the blasted manager was very mataray, and we (both Librans) felt her unkindness... and for what? I-Pod so…
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…
