Eclipse 2010

I've been waiting for this ever since New Moon was released. With no exaggeration, I've read the book more than 5 times I think so I could re-live their love all over again. Me ganon? I guess I'm a hopeless romantic and a sucker for good ol' love stories - walang kokontra.

I watched Eclipse on its premier-midnight screening at Sta. Lucia Mall with my manager. She graciously extended her tickets to me so we could watch. Weeeeeeeeeee, happy!!

My initial assessment? I liked the movie. There were few things that they could have done differently but there were also scenes that they changed which for me sold more, than the book. I can't remember what they really focused on (which tells me I have to watch it again, ehem July 3).. in the book, it was about Bella's reluctance to get married so Edward and her compromised. The compromised concept continued and was used again when Bella asked Edward to sit out of the fight. And the fight of course between Jacob and Edward over Bella, which would lead to Jacob's disappearance in Breaking Dawn.

I liked the emotions involved in the movie altogether - family, love and sacrifices. The fight scenes are waaaaaaaaay better now.

Oh well, my thoughts are everywhere - I'll watch it again and I'll be thorough about it the next time.

Don't fail to watch it!

Which Greek God are You?


Apollo is the son of ZEUS and LETO. His twin sister is Artemis. He is the god of music, playing a golden lyre. The Archer, far shooting with a silver bow. The God of Healing who taught man medicine. The God of Light. The God of Truth, who can not speak a lie. One of Apollo's more important daily tasks is to harness his chariot with four horses and drive the Sun across the sky. He is famous for his oracle at Delphi. People traveled to it from all over the greek world to devine the future. His tree was the Laurel. The crow is his bird. The dolphin is his animal.

Read Percy Jackson and the Olympian, you'll love it. :)

Our Corregidor Adventure with the client last year. Ever since, I've been here 3x - all to babysit our american visitors.

Excuse my post.
Just something to hold on to.

Ang itim ko pa at sobrang taba. haha. (kala mo naman payat na now!)

This was a typical Saturday morning in a cab, going to meet Marvin, when I saw something in front of me between the driver seat and the passenger seat.

Automatically, I knew it was some sort of a power supply but I wondered why it was fastened. I followed where it was connected - maybe it's powering up the meter or something. Apparently, after few seconds of scrutinizing it, I failed to know what it was for; I didn't find any cables.

Glancing to the right, a paper was posted at the back of the seat - which I initially thought was just a regular reminder to make sure mind your things, etc or advertisement, I saw the answer to my silly question. Ah! a power supply indeed, a service from RLC Ubercabs! the Uberplug!

I felt the need for shots so I immediately took my camera out and discreetly captured the evidence of the Uber Cab!

Now in case you're jammed in traffic and you badly needed 'power' to send those emails, and you don't have your blackberry with you - pray that you're in an UBER CAB so you can plug away!

Uber!! (ala melai)

4 years and 10 months

Sometimes even if you want your relationship to work and no matter how long you've been together; the uncertainties, difficulties, and your personal differences will always rise no matter what.

I'd say it's totally getting serious by the months. :)

Wait, I'm not blogging about that - I'm blogging about the upcoming trips I'll be having - out of the country and here too. Sssssshhhh. :)

here... and

here too. :)

sana matuloy!!!

Charice Pimpengco will definitely be in GLEE

I overheard from the radio yesterday morning that Charice Pimpengco auditioned in Glee and was accepted. According to her twitter account (as per the news on the radio), "I tried to audition and I made it, Let's Party". I say she's very very blessed.

This is one of the reasons why I suddenly revived my blog. I wanted to be proud about something... again!!

It was briefly mentioned that Charice will play an exchange student.

I have not had the chance to watch this series.. again, but I know I've seen it couple of times in the US. Anyway, I wish Charice more power! :)

KKK and Movie watch

Today, I was out in the mall with my sister and Marvin. We all met Michelle (an old friend of mine from Teletech) who now works in Qatar and was just visiting Manila.

We had a good lunch in KKK then headed to watch a movie - Sex and the City 2.

The movie was ok but the first one was waaaaaaay better.

I mean let's admit it, they were all prepared to launch the very first SATC that's why it's that special. They completed all their work - complete with story line, fashion, love, sex and comedy. It was absolutely fit for the big screen. With part2 - it didn't seem like it at all. I loved the places they went to and their fabulous clothes but the film doesn't have the heart of the first movie... sure this installment was comedic -- and nothing beyond that.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 4

The Battle of the Labyrinth.

I don't know what that word is all about. Haha. I remember when my class was doing pictionary of some sort, someone drew this on the board and instantly someone else knew what it was - i had not one hell of a clue.

The story evolves in the search for the answer to this crazy maze made by a mortal who had long been alive; cheating death.

But I felt hanging in the open after I finished the book. The last installment in this series is not yet available in Trade Paperbook copy! waaaaaaah. It's available though as hardbound in PowerBooks.

Oh well, I know I have to be patient and wait for the copy I want.

Can't wait to read the last part. :)

Sex and The City 2 The Movie

The sexiest comedy movie is back and I wish to watch this real soon! :)

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 2

... is entitled The Sea of Monsters.

I completed reading this second book over the weekend. Soon, I'll probably need glasses for astigmatism as I keep on reading on moving vehicles. I learned that I can read just about anywhere (LRT, bus, etc) because of my perfect visions; which I think will fail soon if I continue my bad habits.

I enjoy reading Mythology. My first lesson was during College when I borrowed this cute book from our Library. Ever since, I love hearing about Athena, Zeus, Poseidon, Hermes, Ares, and the rest of the clan! :)

Just like the first book, this second installment is full of adventure, humor, family love, self realization and acceptance.

I hope to get my hands on the third book soon! :)

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3

in deep blue color is entitled The Titan's Curse.

Once again, Percy Jackson is up to the quest to strengthen the half-bloods territory and regain their advantage over the Lord of Time - Kronos.

I finished the book with such enthusiasm for Book 4 that I cannot even remember what I read - silly!

But really, one thing I know is that I don't have any regrets reading the book. So loving it!
