Quand J’étais Chanteur

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…

You’ll Never Know…

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…

Segunda Mano 2012

Segunda Mano 2012

I went to the mall with Mac this morning. It’s been nearly two years but we still haven’t watched a movie together in the cinemas so we decided to finally do it today, since we’re kind of getting tired of watching movies on computer screens. Ha-ha! We were planning to watch The Asiong Salonga Story, but the screening schedule is not until 6:30pm, so we opted for another movie instead. We chose to watch Segunda Mano since the trailer seems…

Concerts in 2012

Concerts in 2012

Mac have always dreamed of going to a concert with me, so when he found out that Katy Perry is playing Manila again, he asked me if we could watch it together. We both agreed that we’ll try our best to save up for at least the bronze ticket, but since we have a lot of things to save up for first, the California Dreams concert thought was put aside. But a couple of days ago he told me that…

Welcome 2012!

Welcome 2012!

Happy New Year to everyone! 🙂 I hope you all had fun as much as my family and I did during New Year’s Eve. The food was great, and I devoured on wine all evening, ha-ha! Well, my New Year started when my fiance woke me up at around nine in the morning, and you know when it’s the holidays, nine in the morning is very early in a bum’s clock. LOL. Anyway, he woke me up just to say…

Casa Feliz, Marikina

Casa Feliz, Marikina

During my grandma’s wake, when things have started to make me dizzy, Mac came and took me out of the parish funeral hall. We decided to have an early dinner date on some fancy looking cafe nearby, called Cafe Feliz. It is in Marikina, and it’s just literally across the parish where my grandma’s wake was being held. Casa Feliz is a coffee shop slash resto in SSS Village, Marikina, and despite the good ambiance, and the great interior and…

Dear Dad…

Dear Dad…

It’s been over a year since you have departed, and I must say that it was not easy for me to be dealing with the agonizing situation you left me in. You left just when I was starting to include you in my world, just when we were planning to append each other in one’s future. It’s been a hard year for me, I could not seem to fully let you go. Every now and then I would think of…

Book Review: Alexander and Alestria by Shan Sa

Book Review: Alexander and Alestria by Shan Sa

My step-dad bought me this book last Saturday (April 9) before I went to watch Mac’s basketball game. I was reading 20 Times a Lady by Karyn Bosnak then, so I finished reading that book first. I started reading this new book this morning as I eat breakfast and as I went to work. I was also reading it a while back, until I decided to Google Alexander the Great. I kind of need to brush up on my historical…

On Forgiving…

On Forgiving…

I wonder where you are right now As I sit here all alone Thinking of the good things that we shared and did All the plans that we have made and built How I hoped that they never ended. But God has a better plan for me And so I must let you go No grudges held, no regrets I have finally forgiven you. — Mia Venus, Sept. 6, 2010

There is Life Outside the Box

There is Life Outside the Box

For years, people within an institution have been doing the same routine. People whose term has ended were replaced by those who have worked for years; some people retain a position while others gain a new one. It has been the case for so long that it has become a tradition. Traditions are meant to be good, that is why it has been called so and has been followed by succeeding generations and apparently, it has been giving great hope…
