MMFF 2009

It has been a long standing tradition in my family to watch MMFF movies on Christmas day. I think it started when we were staying in Meycauayan and SM North Edsa was just an FX away. I think it was something I looked forward to even if my mind goes catatonic for atleast 2 hours.

A winning formula for an MMFF blockbuster is to make it appeal to the whole family. Imagine the math, if it's a drama, non-family oriented film, you'll get atmost 2 people to join per household. But if it's for the whole family (given that it's a holiday) you'll get atleast 4 people per household. And how many Pinoy households do we have these days? That's why I scratch my head when I learned that I love you... goodbye was Star Cinema's entry to MMFF 2009.

It was a movie that should have been shown on Valentines day. It certainly is not for the whole family with all of the lovey-doey on screen. Que horror, children and homo people close your eyes! Well, I think gay people will just imagine that they are Angelica. hahaha..

I didn't think that they will take I love you.. goodbye so literally! But a few observations:

1. Gabby is so youthful! Now, his ex wife has a movie and I can't help but compare how they aged. Gabby aged more gracefully than his ex, I think. But it's just me.
2. Kim Chiu is a great contrabida! I luv it! She should accept more bratty roles instead of inaaping binibini!
3. Derek Ramsey's abs deserved it own air time. :) Starring.. Derek Ramsey's abs!

But if you are a Derek Ramsey's abs fan, go watch! :)

AMEN? 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…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
