Last Saturday




Victim: Mommy J

Setting: Library last week

Negative post

This is the second movie date with my dad during this week since he'll be leaving for tomorrow! 
For today, we watched "In Time" in Glorietta and I honestly think that it's a bad film.And I feel a little guilty for saying this because I just read Antsy's post regarding the movie a while ago.
I think that the movie had a good concept and i think that it ought to tell the viewers a very important message which is that we should treasure the time we have and we can do a lot of things just in a day.But when I was watching the film, it was just terrible for me.I badly wanted to go and leave the movie house.I like Justin Timberlake as a singer, but it's a different story when it comes to him being an actor.Amanda Seyfried was really hot as usual but I didn't find any chemistry with them.Also,it seemed to me as if Justin Timberlake was trying to be a second-rate action star and I wasn't impressed with his acting skills.But all of this are just my opinions but I suggest to  anyone who could possibly read this post to go  watch the film and see for yourselves. My dad should have agreed with me to watch "Praybeyt Benjamin," instead!!!! Haha

"Courage is stronger than steel."

 ( photo from: http://www.cityonfire.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Real_Steel_Main.jpg)

Every time my dad visits me here in Manila, we always make it a point to watch a movie together no matter what.For today, we went to MOA and no matter how hard I try to convince him for us to watch Praybeyt Benjamin, he won't allow such thing to happen since korny daw! Thus, we were confronted with the choice of either watching "Real Steel" or "In time." I think my dad really ought to watch  "In Time" more when we were choosing and I wanted to watch it as well since I'm very excited to see the team up of J Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried but I could not tell my dad that I opt to watch "Real Steel" more because I have this huge crush on Hugh Jackman.Teehee

So when I was about to buy the tickets, the saleslady told us that the premiere for "In Time" would only be for the Director's Club and would start quarter to six so this is faith telling us that we should choose the other film1YAY! But what's interesting is that before playing the movie, Sm Cinema provided us, the audience, with this interactive game called "Winema" and it was super fun that everyone of us was laughing in the cinema.

Moving on to the movie, I think this is a really good film and I really love how the movie depicts the growing relationship between the father and his son.And the battle scenes are so cool.When I went home, I immediately googled the film to see if there's any sequel to it and the good news is that there really is!!!! I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel.Hugh Jackman is such a beautiful man.He looks so strong and buff , but on the inside he's such a marshmallow.I have always loved Hugh Jackman since "X-Men." And this movie made me love him more.Gosh, I worship him.
Forgive me for my shallow comments since I really suck in making film reviews.It's my weakness! :( haha

In a nutshell, this film made me cry and it's a good experience to have my dad watch it with me.I highly recommend for my readers to go watch this film. :)

Love,

Trick or Treat



Something is scarier than halloween.It is frightening in a way that it gives me horror to think about it even if it's not a scary movie, which is one thing that I hate the most. When I was still very young, every time halloween is up, I make it a point not to watch television during that period of time as to not  encounter any  images that would scare every fragment of my childish being.But this scary "thing"  is greater than my perception of scary when I was younger because it  is an evil that corrupts my inner peace of mind.Despite my innate bum mode upon sensing the truth of the matter that there are no classes for a short while, it makes me freak out every time I come to think of it.

I have to admit, this is the first time that I'm going to spend my halloween thinking about academics.I have been receiving quite disappointing grades for a while now.And what makes me more disappointed with myself is that I am the main  culprit of such consequences that I face right now. Everytime I do something, there i s this thought in my head that says anything I do is worthless because the inevitable would happen always.I would only get disappointed with myself and my capabilities. 

This week has been the most stressful week I have ever been since college, believe me.I am the type of person who treasures my passionate commitment to my bed, thus I always make it a point to get more than five hours of sleep , as much as I can. But this week surely tested my strength and endurance to handle all the pressure that is required from a Literature student.I'm not even hardworking as compared to the others, for crying out loud! So I cannot completely decipher as to why I have been forced to break  my engagement with the desired long hours of sleep. (Sigh.) Call me a a sleep whore,  sleep addict,  or whatever, and I don't care because it's the truth.Haha. It's so hard to go to class like a zombie!!!!!!Do professors even realize that students can't function that well in class if they don't get to sleep at all,in my opinion of course.


But far more important than my lack of sleep issue is that I honestly do not know what to make of the coming critical papers that I'm required to do. I can't analyze a collection of poems in less than 5 days and transform it into a substantial work.I have other academic subjects to think of as well.SOmetimes, I feel that too much of the pressure from academics makes me do nothing for a moment. During these moments, I realize that I am not a robot who can function anytime and anywhere. I need relaxation and shopping of course! I don't know if I am also worthy as a student in this program.It seems as if I don't deserve this opprtunity.Oh well, I need to be positive and I should go for the killer to prove my worth.I need to give more effort really since I get distracted A LOT.

Although,I have this quote embedded in my babypad that goes something like," Dedicate a time just to do nothing even just for a short while." I guess another excuse that I ought to give when someone finds me bumming around is the cliche," All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." With an attempt to make this approach feminist in a way, "All work and no play makes Jack and Jill dull children." (hAHA)
I feel sad for my readers for they have to go through with my drama in this blog.Blogging is my way of decreasing my chance to reach the limit of dullness.


And maybe this halloween is a trick rather than a treat for me, after all.

Baby crazy

It's almost 5am in the morning and I haven't even started doing my abstract for my baby thesis proposal.I want to die now.Huhu.
I do not know what theory I should use for my study and if I do use marxism,I just hope I won't die soon.Here I am giving my best effort not to fall into the temptation of sleeping at all.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

if am crazy, you are there to be crazy as well.


Disclaimer: THis post does not follow the  good use of the language and is meant to convey what I really want to express.

Sometimes I wonder what my life could have been if I haven't met my soul sister.Perhaps I could be happy in a way but the thought of not being with someone who can be there for me and appreciate the person I am, a package full of flaws, is undeniably a very sad thought.And because of this, I am deeply thankful for meeting  the person who i consider my best friend,but an angel who remarkably changed the person that I was before.
This is like the nth time that I made something for her but I won't get tired of doing so because I'm a very sentimental person.Haha

Hello, best! 
If you happen to read this post, pls. remember that everything I say in here is the truth. :)
I can't believe you're turning eighteen in less than three days.
I can vividly remember the first day we met and the first day we talked about our different worlds that became similar.We talked about Antoinette Taus, our shoes, our houses, and Honey my love so sweet.It's amazing how it feels like we've just met yesterday.And I don't know if you know this, but during that day, when we were sitting and just talking while the piano class is going on, I truly felt happy because I was sure that I met a true friend and I haven't felt happy for such a long time then. When I was on my way going home, i had a smile on my face.
I want you to know that you are the only person in the world who knows all my kalokohan , my love stories , and my inner sentiments.
Thank you for being there to lend me your ears at all times.
When I'm with you, I feel most comfortable because I know that you won't judge me no matter what.
You have been with me through the most wonderful and sad times in my high school lifel.We both had our first loves together and both had our hearts broken and I want to say that having you by my side makes me almost fearless because you are ready to catch and help me when I'm about to fall.
(Oh my gosh, naalala ko best ung ma kalokohan an ginawa mo for me-shoes and gag..haha)
I still remember the time when we would just imagine things and I really enjoyed our exchange of love stories. I love it when it seems like no other person can relate to me over goichi goichis and stuff but you do.We have our own dictionary of terms which makes people think about what we're really saying and you just bring out my crazy wild side being that girl you are.Haha. (san pa magmamana is bibi)
You can understand me the most that not even silence can serve as an impediment to our communication---talking without sound :)
Best, I am so proud of you for surviving high school as well and leaving all the drama behind. I get hurt when someone thinks badly of you knowing the great person you are.You are so kindddd as innnnnn :) I just hope that insecure people wouldn't intrude with your life the same way they did before.
Okay best ang gulo gulo na ng dedication post ko pero whatver you understand me naman kahit siguro mag jeje pa ako.
I dream that someday we would get the chance to spend quality time as in ung hindi lang one day.Hay.Naalala ko tuloy ung sleepovers natin na hindi naman tayo natutulog because todo chikahan tayo.
Come here naaa kasi sa Manila.Hihi

And by the way, thank you best for letting me become part of your life as well.i am thankful din that you're very genuine and when somehting's wrong with us, talagang you make it a point to tell  me what's wrong.
Naalala ko bigla ung petty fights natin every monday and wednesday during social studies class.Haha

Anyway, Best, I want you to know that even if we don't get to talk as much now, I am thankful to God for sending me the sister that I never had.You are truly the most beautiful person inside and out that I know .Let's catch up sooooon. :)
When I'm with you, sumasabog tayo as kalokohan.
                                                   we are tropicana buddies

                                                        nENEZ pa tayo

                                  i think you're going to hate me for posting this picture.Haha


                       Like ko expression mo here.


love you bestyyyyy.

Poem for the day

Looking for your face by Rumi


From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it.

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for.

Today I have found you
and those that laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did.

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you with a hundred eyes.

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold.

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine.

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow.

My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
and you have made radiant
for me
the earth and sky.

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer.

For mommy J


Today, I was spending some time in the library then I suddenly saw Mommy J!!!I was so happy to see Mommy J after so many weeks.My, I know that you're going to read this post, so this post is dedicated for you in a way.
Haha
I can't wait for our date.


Love,
Your japanese beibi

Silly me


I have this paper due on monday that should tackle different literary theories .And I don't know if I will survive the next few days.But despite all of it, here I am doing nothing.(Well, at least I'm blogging)

You and I collide.




 Today, I was able to go shopping with mamita Symba.We felt the urge to go shopping for us to reward ourselves from the intense academic workload.And the thing is,I've been spending soooo much time with mamita lately.Aside from the fact that we see each other everyday because of classes, we also live in the same condominium so whenever I feel like talking to someone,I just go to her unit and we gossip about ANYTHING under the sun and at at times,I even sleep at her place.
                 Mamita-MOA girl        Me-Ayala Girl

Mamita,if you're reading this,I want to say thank you for being a great shopping buddy and thank you for making me feel like I'm part of your family.Haha.And for this day,thank you so much for influencing me to buy in Sm department store :) Looking forward to the next one,till our wallets give up on us!!!Haha

P.S.
I won't ever forget our late night talks (sis+you+me's private talk) and adventures during the typhoon.


Highlights of the day:
-hat-hunting
-kultura invasion
-gongcha wintermelon
-lab's lookalike
-spontaneous plan of a halloween and christmas party


And i WAS SUPER DUPER MEGA HAPPY when I found out that the department store offers really good clothes and accessories at affordable prices.

                                     It took us so much time to choose hats to buy!
                        (sorry for the quality of the photos for I am not a photographer) :(
                           I rarely wear a hat but I just couldn't resist buying.
      Is anyone going to believe me when  say that this costs less than 300php??? Unbelievable,right?
                                                
                                  
                                                          I'm fond of prints lately.
                          I don't know what's the proper term for this garment but I call these my "ruffles skirts."


                                     And this dress costs only less than 300 php!!!
I'm so excited to go shopping again,as always.
Love,
