    Almost End of Term

    You’ve read that right, first term is about to end in a month or so and my stack of paper work is higher than ever. T.T But I really missed blogging so I thought I’d write something today. 🙂 It’s been quite a while since I last blogged, and a lot has really happened in my offline life since I last posted. One was a break up, another is my week-long birthday celebration and more of internship stuff mostly. The break up was okay, it’s nothing to feel remorseful about really. We remained good friends after it, and I’m sure it will do us both good, especially now that’s he’s…

    Book Review: Anne Rice: Interview with the Vampire

    “It was as if when I looked into his eyes I was standing alone on the edge of the world…on a windswept ocean beach. There was nothing but the soft roar of the waves.” ― Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire Plot: Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force—a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write. This is obviously a classic, what else can I say about it? It has award winning…

    Father’s Day 2012

    It’s that time of the year again when people celebrate a day especially dedicated for all father’s. People celebrate the day made for their dads differently… some may cook dinner, take them out for a movie, a play or perhaps a bar (trust me, I know someone who took his father out in a bar for father’s day), or maybe do random things with them. I honestly would want to jam with my dad since he’s a musician, but since he passed away two years ago, I’m celebrating father’s day here at home blogging about it over a tall glass of ice cold coffee with three shots of vodka. You…

    Some Thoughts

    DID YOU KNOW that most of the successful businessmen in the world do not technically have a high IQ? Instead, they possess a high level of EMOTIONAL QUOTIENT in which they use to, not only keep their business together, but also their employees happy, encouraged and successfull as they are. Think about it, a good and honest tap on someone’s shoulder could make them a better person, and what better way to enjoy their triumph is to be happy for them and not jealous of what they have achieved. With that, let me share to you what I learned this morning. I have learned that people compliment you for two…

    Book Review: The Godfather by Mario Puzo

    Definitely one of the greatest and well known franchise. I honestly don’t know where to start in this review of The Godfather. I just feel that the novel is too awesome and legendary to be critiqued. The movie was excellent, if that word tops ‘great’. But the book is even better! The book gave so much importance to each of the important characters in every chapter, thus making the situation or event even more easier to understand. Add to that the various point of views of the characters whenever the Don sends for them to do him service. Most of the time, the characters were frightened of doing a service…

    Book Review: A Thousand Tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury

    A Thousand Tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury is definitely my favorite novel of all time. I know there are far better novels written, but this certain book have captured my heart ever since the first time I have laid my eyes on it in the bookstore. When I saw it during my freshmen years in high school, I immediately saved up for it and bought it the following week. The best thing was it did not let me down. I swear, every part of the book is still with me up to this day, even if I have lost the book itself from my numerous apartment transfers in the past few…

    College Tour 2012

    I honestly did not anticipate on attending this school year’s college tour. For one reason, I thought it would be boring and childish, considering the fact that our itineraries were The Myth of the Human Body and Manila Ocean Park, add to that having my batch to share the bus with the annoying freshmen. I thought it would be the worst tour I and my friends would ever have, but I guess fate has once again changed all those sentiments. As usual. FIRST STOP : Myth of the Human Body – The Fort Our first stop was The Myth of the Human Body. At first, I thought that the museum would have something…

    I once dream of…

    being a theatre actress. That dream started when I was in the sixth grade when I was asked by my music teacher to star as Mary Magdalene in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. It was really a nice experience, and exposure if you ask me. Even if my teacher literally dragged me to the first rehearsal. LOL. I carried that dream until I was in High School but eventually dropped it when I found out that writing and web design is my forte in life. But I still go to opera productions when I have the time these days, or when our school invite theatre groups to perform in our…

    Quand J’étais Chanteur

    Sorry for the French title, but if you’re quite into films, especially French films you’d know that the title is from a French movie. The English title, if I am not mistaken, is said to be The Singer, or When I was a Singer. Meh. Sorry for the confusing information, so not an expert. 😛 The movie is written and directed by M. Xavier Giannoli and it stars Gerard Depardieu and Cecile de France, and yes, I watched the movie because I was fan girling over M. Depardieu. You can’t blame me though, he’s such a good actor, and his performance in the movie bagged positive feed backs from French…

    You’ll Never Know…

    I still feel like crying after seeing the photo below early this afternoon. Credit: Mr. Dennis L. Santos You’ve probably saw it on the evening news tonight, the horrible accident that shook the entire town of Taytay, Rizal early this afternoon. A dump truck went out of control and eventually crashed into a police outpost, killing five people. I was with Mac and Abby in McDonald’s Valley Golf this afternoon having our lunch when it happened, and I’m not sure who told us of the news first, but Mac’s aunt sent him a message in Facebook asking for his whereabouts, apparently she heard of the news already (I don’t even…
