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 ..."

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.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
