My thoughts,rating and overall movie experience:

Many thanks to Aunt Susan who treated us for this wonderful Christmas movie it's been quite part of the tradition in our family to watch and go to the movies every year well except for last year. But anyway, I got some ideas about the movie I managed to get a glimpse of some parts from the trailer and advertisements etc. it's been a couple of years since I actually watched the other versions so yeah truly looking forward watching them all unfold.

The Child Cosette is so adorable and absolutely perfect for the role then Amanda Seyfried is the perfect grown up match Cosette and Eddie Redmayne (Marius) he's so french they are the perfect couple in this movie ever! Their love triangle in which I feel so sorry for Samantha Barks (Éponine

The moment I saw that they cut off Anne's hair I know for sure that she's gonna win an award!
and she did a wonderful job! she sang her heart out,portrayed a vulnerable character,flexible in many ways.
Sacha Baron Cohen (Thénardier) and Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thénardier) these two made me laugh a lot of times! Master of the house is one of my all time favorite number such a Cray cray couple.

Éponine, took number one with her ON MY OWN song (timeless piece ever!)
OMG! look at Samantha Barks's tiny waist :O I wish and would like mine's like that haha! I think that's the first one I noticed and the next would have to be is that she's quite a look a like of the one playing Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in Once upon a time
I haven't heard or know Samantha until I googled her apparently she's been through a lot of broadway shows or so yeah! amazing voice and lovely too.

The last scene in the movie actually is truly a tear jerker I thought I'm the only one but then I heard quite a number of sniffles here and there so I'm relieved I'm not alone! haha! I'll give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars it made me cry especially towards the end I wouldn't even thought of it but the way the musical goes and spoke to my heart w:Ow I actually got a heart! haha! I would most definitely buy this in Blu-ray!

One Day (Movie)

Director: Lone Scherfig

Writers: David Nicholls (screenplay& book)

Genre: Drama,Romance,Contemporary
Minutes: 107
Release Date: August 19,2011
Story line: 
Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other.(more)

My thoughts,rating and overall movie experience:

5 out of 5 stars! CLASSIC!
This scene made me want to watch the movie in the first place and I do admit I cried a lot watching this film and no matter how many times I watched this.OMG! it's very faithful to the book. Anne Hathaway & Jim Sturgess their very existence is the perfect embodiment of Emma and Dex.

They're like my favorite fictional couple of all time! XD
I dunno what else to say about this I think I already said everything in my book review it's just so Perfect! because usually whenever they make a book to movie adaptation they change or revise some things even though the playwrite is the author but this movie oh no they totally made this truly a great match for every events.I like how they laid it out plain and simple with the dates so that people who haven't read the book would still know and of course for all of us to be reminded of oh so that was this year then that was last year etc.

I've been looking forward to this movie for a very long time and it was worth it!Good job and hands down to everyone who made this film possible.I would definitely recommend this to everyone and buy it in Blu-ray!^^,

Have you seen this?what are your thoughts about it? if so tell me your favorite parts,opinions etc. if you haven't also tell me why?are you planning to watch this anytime soon or what? make sure to tell me in the comments below ^^,

My Thoughts:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I read this in preparation for the upcoming movie I love the colored illustrations,very much enjoyed the scenery and Tolkien's world building.The First time I read the book I never imagined it to be like this I thought it would be much darker like when Bilbo met Smeagol in the cave.This was very enlightening experience for me.The Dwarves names/roll call is like a tongue twister and I can't remember who is who and what is what good thing for these illustrations a-ha! I'm so excited to watch them live in action and listen to their songs. ^_^

Materials used:
A dozen small christmas balls
Acrylic Paint (Black & white)

It took me a couple of coats of acrylic paint to make it thick also to make it stick real good.I used the scotch tape as a guide I put it all around the xmas ball so I won't have a lot of Ooopps then used the same rack to let them dry then viola.Handpainted all the way ^^, (you get it..I hope so)

About the book:
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. (more)

My Review 2.5 stars

I've been trying to read this for so long and I put it down so many times for I must admit that I did actually struggle to finish this book.I can't believe that the story is ending and I'm like so that's basically it?'s quite clear all along who will Katniss choose but rooting back and forth who is my favorite pair of them all I'm all in for Peeta haha! I'm really glad she did pick *ahem can't tell ahem* they are so adorable! they've been through a lot,their chemistry,love and history plus her reasons that made her pick him is just....OMG! XD

Everything is simple yet complicated because in order to defeat and kill Snow they must infiltrate the capitol.Katniss remained strong though there are times she felt so weak and not the right person to do the job and yet she still embodied, gave people hope,faced what she's destined to be...The Mockingjay!.

The Perks of being a Wallflower (Movie)

My thoughts,reaction,gifs (from tumblr),overall movie experience XD

I'm so looking forward to this movie
Yup, imagine me doing that cheer while walking...heading towards the movie theater lol my head at least. Ok so we watched the movie September 30,2012 (Sunday) coz we didn't know it's only playing on selected cinemas our journey began 7:10 pm we are planning to watch it on 8:05 pm. (the original time being 7:05 pm but that was ok ;))

Before we head there of course I'm looking for other alternative routes like the back roads you name it but still the same time traffic jam the latest and the less one I took which is yes that's right 27 minutes worth of traffic for like (5.3 unbelievable  miles) well at least it's the moving kind not the stuck up was ok better than what I expected it to be.

Inside the car Me,Geraldine (19) and Gemma (14) [2 niece(s?)] talked about you know the usual stuff about school,Russia,essays,reminiscing,playing with the radio stations,laughing and scenarios that could possibly happen at the theater.Of course either there's :

1) lots of people and it's tough to find a good seat,standing,over crowded,get a different time slot.
2) just the three of us inside the auditorium.
3) Sold out tickets.

while playing those scenario games though it could go in so many ways.We finally arrived at the venue hooray! and easily found a parking spot right around the corner yey! and since it's sunday we don't have to pay for that particular spot ha! talk about lucky! gahd I love this day ;))

Geraldine exchanged our vouchers so we're situated at Auditorium 3.I went on ahead to go to the restroom while they purchased some food in the center of it all (just basically before the entrance inside the theater).Then I went back to look for them then off's quite like a ghost town just us in the corridor but yey! finally some people (more likely on a movie date or something).Some of them are so dull,no reaction at all but we're quite like the life of it all actually we laughed a lot,cried at some parts and so on. Just so heart warming and touching it's just so...can't really explain it that much you just gotta watch it for yourself experience such emotional joy ride.

       I felt every bit of Charlie's emotion.He's so adorable,sensitive, captured and showed such awkwardness especially the during their dance( Him,Sam & Patrick) cuteness overload! there are times that just simply cracks me up about him.
 I just felt so alive....and infinite!

I think Emma Watson did an amazing job as Sam 
this scene feels a little bit titanic-ky ;)

and Patrick, OMG! he's so gay (happy you name it) and fantastic in doing so! I absolutely love him! (yes I know right talk about the excessive use of !)  I saw some of myself in him (like...I was like that when I was in college so fun,jolly,makes everyone so comfortable and at ease or so at least make them all feel welcome.Befriend anyone,talk to them even though we're not on the same class or if we did or whatever coz everyone is just so nice to talk to XD I'm like one of my best self that time pwahaha! )

The Rocky Horror Film is better than what I imagined I'm awe and amazed :O
Overall, everybody did a phenomenal job though there are some scenes that made me think back and forth about the book.The book is always better but these actors/actresses made everything come to life! Mr. Stephen Chbosky is truly spectacular directing the movie and everything.I applaud every part of the crew!

I'm gonna give this a rating of 4 out of 5 stars
and I'm definitely gonna buy it in BLU-RAY!

Heading back home was also one of the most awesome part we hit the green light combo,sang and shared what we liked or don't like about the movie we laughed and screamed talked about infinity.Looked for some infinity songs playing in the radio it was a great night!We're really glad we watched this movie! we can't even stopped talking about this at home we also started recommending it to some people that we know (that might like it or just basically whatever) We got a movie hangover (can't move on) coz it's so good took us awhile to calm down lol XD

so have you seen the movie yet? are you planning to?what do you think?
here's the trailer in case you wanna watch it again (and again like me lol perhaps refresh your memory ;))

The Sandman, Vol. 6: Fables and Reflections (The Sandman #6) by Neil Gaiman | Graphic Novel Review

Sci-fi, Young Adult
Format: Paperback, Graphic Novel
Page Count: 264
Language: English
Published: March 10th 1999 by Vertigo (first published January 1st 1993)
ISBN: 1563891069 (ISBN13: 9781563891069)
About the book:
Featuring the popular characters from the award-winning Sandman series by Neil Caiman, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS reveals the legend of the Endless, a family of magical and mythical beings who exist and interact in the real world. Born at the beginning of time, Destiny, Death, Dream, Desire, Despair, Delirium, and Destruction are seven brothers and sisters who each lord over their respective realms. (more)

My Review: 4.5 stars

Nine short stories full of life lessons.The Intro was actually after the first story that's quite a nice change.The Author & Illustrators biography morphed and got that creepy disfigured/distorted images also other odd details.

I'd like to share some of my favorite and memorable lines,moments and thoughts about this book:

~Sometimes the fall you die or wake up [First story: Fear of Falling (ok I paraphrased that because the moral of the story is basically about falling,failure in life that's how you learn and have to move on)].
~His Madness keeps him sane (by Delirium).
~U.S has a first and last Emperor!
~Orpheus story (Morpheus/Dream's son) reminds me of Jack the halloween kind of story.
~Parliament of Rooks about Adam's wife(s) :0
~Ah the Ramadan, the beautiful Baghdad!
~In which I also thought about other soft places that ever existed.
~Simplicity and disguises works!

This truly made me realize how complex of a book this is,the characters,their names,personality and all that stuff oh wow! The series made me think about the sandman in a whole new level!

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness | Book Review

Fiction, Young Adult
Format: Hardcover,ebook
Page Count: 215,124
Language: English
Published: September 27th 2011 by Walker Books (first published March 5th 2011)
ISBN: 1406311529 (ISBN13: 9781406311525)
About the book:
The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.

But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming...

This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth. (more)

My Review: 5 out of 5 stars
I'm immediately warped into Conor's world...I thought it would be scary but this was a different kind of monster.A psychological case yet in some ways real truly this story is about his way to cope with his life,other sort of changes and challenges he must face.I like the Yew Tree fact I learned a lot from it I didn't even know that it has some very amazing cancer healing properties and I love how the monster narrates each tale in which you might thought this but then you'll be proven wrong or convince otherwise.

It's really tough to have someone sick in your family.Conor handled it rather well for his age and proved that he's a strong kid in the making.A tear jerking story!

Dear Mr. Alien by Yannis Karatsioris | Book Review

Source:  Provided by the Author for review
Category: Fiction, Juvenile
Format: ebook
Page Count: 62
Language: English
Published: August 5th 2012 by Createspace
ISBN: 1478340576 (ISBN13: 9781478340577)
About the book:
Greek eight-year old, Paul, decides to start a correspondence through letters with an alien.Rumor has it that aliens will destroy the world by the end of 2012 and Paul has taken on the task to convince the aliens not to attack the earth, by describing all that he knows about our planet.(more)

My Review: 3.5 stars

Funny and adorable! I wish Paul wrote more letters.Since he's a kid I saw some typos here and there which I find very cute and charming.My favorite story/letter of his is when his teacher Mr. Nick asked them to write about three important things his final answer made me laugh that kid sure is something! lots of potential.I hope he'll continue to jut down his adventures,school life,all the things he wants to learn and share to others,just basically all the things he could possibly think of who knows it may lead to Mr. Alien Part II or something else I suppose?

Midnight in Paris | Movie Review


Gil Pender (Owen Wilson) successful Hollywood screen writer and an aspiring author is on vacation with his Fiance Lnez (Rachel McAdams) in Paris along with her Parents. He's in love with Paris to a point he's even considering living there and leave everything behind in California in order to write his novel but Lnez she's not feeling it.Gil always liked the 1920's and so one time he got very drunk after wine tasting with Lnez and her family instead of going dancing with his fiance and her friends he decided to go back to the hotel and walked.He was lost,tired and drunk he sat over at a flight of stairs waiting for a cab then clock strikes twelve an old school vehicle pulled over some people inside started to call for him invited him for a party before he knew it he's drinking again,talking to strangers parisians,americans etc. eventually it got into him that the people he's talking to are the real deal famous people! like Scott Fitzgerald,Zelda Fitzgerald,Picaso all his idols.He also met a very lovely lady who also accompanies him during his strolls from that point on his life changed! late night strolls became a habit,he met a lot of interesting people who helped in his writing,lots of big decisions to be made.Oh boy!

OMG! this movie is fantastic! absolutely brilliant,wonderful and amazing! why didn't I see this any sooner?! I love the cast and how they played their characters really well.The costumes,music and scenery absolutely breath taking.

(Spoiler Alert) though there are some points in which Gil should have reason out with his fiance's parents tell them about the deceit and lies Lnez holiday fling fiasco than just leaving the hotel room with a mere goodbye.I like the part where Gil told Paul (one of lnez's college crush and Friend) about the part he got wrong about history and Picaso's painting haha!. A Part where Gil thought he would score that night but didn't tsk tsk..also the part where he finally met a girl in the end who likes to walk in the rain alongside with him aww...(though she's a bit young-er than/for him but hey they're in Paris!  it's nice to have some company and sight see plus of course walk in the rain ;)))

This movie made me feel and urge me to go to Paris even more along with my Cousins,Family and Friends and perhaps secretly waiting til the clock hits twelve midnight.Ah what a beautiful and romantic rendezvous awaits haha!

 I'll give this five out of five stars (and if possible I'll give it an infinite value!) seriously this is so awesome well thought and made! mere words can't suffice how I love and adore this movie hands down! If you like the 1920's, jazz,Scott Fitzgerald,classic and old school you should definitely watch this movie! I'll definitely buy this in Blu-ray ^_^

Sherlock | Tv series Review

Haha! I wish anyway in this case I mean post is about this british tv series modern take of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's epic novel Sherlock Holmes (Clever fictional detective character ever!).

For those of you who doesn't know I absolutely love Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works.I think that this show is absolutely brilliant! it's fresh,innovative, funny and exciting at the same time! and I just found out that  Benedict Cumberbatch we have the same birthday how cool is that? haha! ok totally irrelevant but still if the records are real anyway he played Sherlock he's like the...

Haha! kidding aside I like when he deduce his cases and the way he pick clients by simply walking across the room exclaiming Boring! or Very interesting!.His observation skills are better than ever as well as his violin solos. You should definitely check it out and see it for yourself mere words can't explain such talent!

 Martin Freeman (Dr. Watson),Sherlock's bestfriend he kept a blog where he post/share their awesome adventures (sorta like his journal to keep track of things) which occasionally put them into trouble.

Lara Pulver (Irene Adler a.k.a The Woman), Sherlock's romantic interest,a dominatrix, she's sexy,effective,portrayed the part real well and I like the part how her story ended a complete different twist.

Andrew Scott (Moriarty),Sherlock's Arch enemy he looks normal and nice but then he can be so terrifying at times.Fear the dark side!

Ok, so now that you've met/seen the characters aren't they the perfect cast ever?! 
what I like about this series is that per season they got 3 episodes about 80 minutes each. In the classic novel and other film adaptations they used  telegrams,horses,carriages definitely old school etc. while the modern take of course cellphones,cars but there's still a lot of running and chasing the bad guys which I liked also how he memorized by heart the streets of London from different types of pavements,bumps,street signs all the possible and imaginable route.

I just finished watching season I and started season II but can't wait and I'm so excited for season III in which they say won't be coming soon enough ugh -_- hopefully next year. 

Wanna know which character are you? click here it will redirect you to the spot the difference pbs website.Enjoy the fun game ^_^

If you're in London or planning to do some sight seeing better check out Baker St.

Language: English and Tagalog
Published:2011 by Summit
ISBN: 20111215 (ISBN13: 9772011121005)
About the book:
Lourd's various entries on everyday life's absurdities, This is a Crazy Planets mirrors Filipino pop culture in a way that is both humorous and endearing.(more)

My Review: 5 stars
Truly the best of his works! he's brutally honest yet hilarious at the same time.I like his choice of words and the wisdom he left his readers to ponder upon.The book encompasses various points in everyday filipino life from politics,hierarchy,words that should die,the origin of his name,certain celebrities he either like or dislike,transportation even urinals!

Whoa! this guy is unstoppable! for sure you'll know you're hella pinoy either by heart,ethnicity or by nationality when you read/can relate through certain things he talked about.

I love his youtube channel as well as his website google him if you must!

I chose this book as my first vlog book review because a very good old friend of mine Charmaine(a.k.a saybermemein/malupet) gave this to me which I considered as one of my priceless possessions.I'm such a noob and total newbie at this book vlogging thing so please forgive me >.<  show some support, subscribe,feel free to comment and tell me your thoughts about the book etc.

This is also somewhat my video response to malupet so yeah I hope I answered her question/s what I thought about the book. XD

Speak (Movie Review)

This movie was about an hour and a half long.The leading protagonist Melinda Sordino played by Kristen Stewart is about to begin a new school year .Because of what happened last summer party nobody wants to be her friend anymore well except this new girl from Ohio (Heather Billings), her previous group of friends despise her entire existence,whispers behind her back without even knowing the truth well except nearly the end of the movie where the big reveal was kind of a big shocker for everyone.(Isn't always?)

I think that it's very faithful to the book.Kristen Stewart's awkward and silent acting skills (well I don't know if that would even count because most of her roles are quite like that just saying) but it works for this kind of flicks. The way she conveyed her emotions through her eyes, little actions and scripts delivered it pretty much ok I like how she just burst out her feelings and told Heather how much of a user/social climber she is and just stood up,speak for herself!ha!.I've decided to watched this because I was kinda intrigue how would it be portrayed in the big screen and hey! I can't say no just because of the people portraying it plus the Q&A author portion talk at the back of the book surely was interesting.

I like how Michael Angarano portrayed Dave Petrakis he's one of my favorite characters he's bright and got the guts to stand up for himself and defends others a true friend! the second one was Mr. Freeman (Steve Zahn) you'll always have that weird teacher that would let you do almost anything in class :D

I don't want to give any spoilers and if I did (Oops ;)))
you can read my book review here (if you like)
I would give this movie 3 stars it was ok I sorta like it but I won't buy it in bluray it's a good reference whether you've read or not check it out and tell me what you think about it ^_^

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson | Book Review

Young Adult, Realistic Fiction
Format: Paperback
Page Count: 208
Language: English
Published: April 1st 2001 by Puffin (first published October 22nd 1999)
ISBN: 014131088X (ISBN13: 9780141310886)
About the book:
Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops. Now her old friends won't talk to her, and people she doesn't even know hate her from a distance. The safest place to be is alone, inside her own head. But even that's not safe. Because there's something she's trying not to think about, something about the night of the party that, if she let it in, would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smithereens. And then she would have to speak the truth.(more)

My Review: 3 stars

I'm quite shock that this book was labeled as a banned book and for some reason I've decided to read it. It's about a girl who was raped then decided in the end to speak and fight for herself (in her own way) hence the title but it's more than that actually you'll feel and experience those awkward moment and moment of hesitation she had during the entirety of the novel itself.I'm glad that she did stood up for herself,her friends and what she believes is right! though a bit short and quick read of a story I like how the main character developed all throughout.More power to you girl! and I do hope that whoever reads this book will feel empowered as well.

My favorite character was Dave Petrakis he's clever and stands up wheneever he thinks something's wrong with the picture he reminds me a lot of myself when I was a student lol :)) My Second favorite is Mr. Freeman (The Art teacher) he's nice,weird and let his class wonder and express things by means of art he lets Melinda explore and say things beyond what she's feeling and seeing experimenting lots of art forms it was really funny and engaging.

Will Grayson,Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan | Book Review

Category:  Young Adult,Fiction
Format: Paperback
Page Count: 310
Language: English
Published:  April 5th 2011 by Speak (first published April 6th 2010)
0142418471 (ISBN13: 9780142418475)
About the book:

Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high school stage. (more)

My Review: 3 stars

I was really confused at first with the story line then with both Will Grayson's they're the same in a way that they almost think alike but in some ways different like their living conditions,environment,set of friends,school,district etc. I didn't quite noticed the change of fonts in terms of narration for I'm so focused in reading the whole story I thought it's just how they express themselves that time (like big letters for angry or small for neutral or normal tone)what I didn't know before that I know now is that both authors jiving in introducing these sets of characters that would collide in the middle of it all. When it comes with their perspectives in life,love,school,being a teenager and accepted in society they somewhat flourished and improved their character developed as time pass what I liked about this is that it's straight forward and gay! beware for it contains quite a lot of curses I'm surprised there's no censorship at all!:O

I thought about what if the other will grayson's friend didn't pretend to be a boy but simply a girl...would he still be gay? or would it be have another end result?

Tiny's production at the beginning was all about him (self centered)but in the end of course being gay and all the story turned out to be the most wonderful musical I've ever laid my eyes upon, very touching and romantic.

I somewhat identified some of myself with the characters a little bit of everything with everyone involved like Tiny's queer oddball moments and Will Grayson's silent thoughts. I may say it's full of teenage angst whatever you call it these days hormones? perhaps but we all know deep inside we'll surpass that level and just basically moved on with life.

Hello lovely viewer/s!

Enough with the lame,dramatic,emo-centric poems or notes whatever you'd like to call it..
I will post book reviews again yey! I'm actually working and thinking of a lot of stuff lately so I'll post new things A.S.A.P

ciao ^_^

Sunday, July 8, 2012


I always post things

on an irregular basis

most of them are just brought up

some made up with the oddest of things.

the best selling ones

are the matters of the heart

or level of attraction.

I'll continue what I'm doing

especially when inspiration strikes!

or whenever I needed some distraction ;))

Whatever made you read this

I'd like to thank you so much for your time and for dropping by!

you made me smile ^_^

and completed my day.

Have a good one!

Friday, July 6, 2012


a boy I once knew

now a man I hardly know

what happened?

to us?to you?

I can't even fathom.

when did it all began?

can't hardly say

perhaps the time

we both felt indifferent

not utterly the same.


if not, here's a reminder

from me to you

where to begin...

one day,

you just showed up

with a girl claiming to be a friend

I welcome her to the club

like a regular

you know the same old stereotypical way.

I knew it!

we both knew

it's just that

we let pass such opportunistic son of a .....

ruin us

rip us into two!

I still can't believe she can do such vile things!

she poisoned our mind

played with our feelings

toyed and abused us

to her heart's content

we're too nice!

we're too human!

I can't let that happen again

the tragedy

the chase

I'm saving you

I'll endure it

every single bit

it's not revenge I seek

but justice

for you my love

not just ours

but to others she destroyed

such person should cease to exist

anger and fury filled me!

others convinced me otherwise

you'll wake up soon enough

I always keep my promise

I still believe and do hope

there's a place

only I could access

not anyone alive dare to enter

Don't forget

our love and dreams

always and forever

One must pay the full price

in order to salvage

what remains of the other.

Thursday, July 5, 2012


Once upon a time

a girl used to curse excessively

in such a manner one can't handle

nor bare whatever you'd like to call it

we dunno why

perhaps it's such a fad before

she took part.

she used to censored such

but then it all started to sink in

that it's as if it's the new hi's and hello's

one might put in the beginning or end of their sentences.

we all fell into the trap of evil

then she woke up one day

after a couple of dose of preaching

not in a course of finding or a true love kiss.

The End.

[sometimes I just find my notes kinda funny]

Happy 4th! ^_^

About a boy

This is not like the movie one might say might be.
who knows
perhaps it's just me
kinda cliché really

this post is about a boy
I kinda like him you see
known him for quite sometime now
sometimes he's there
most of the time not

he's not at all imaginary
he's totally and completely real!
normal,pretty much alive and moving
with limbs,head with a brain and everything.

we shared a couple of stories
funny,melancholy memories
bizarre moments
our first epic encounters
and life long adventures

but then again
whenever I thought about it
and I often wonder
if those messages were in some ways
whatever it is I thought it would be
different perhaps

it's always like this stumble and trumped
people's feelings
he'll turn back then come back again
it's as if having an experiment
like to see if I am in any way affected.

it's not fair my dearly beloved
to have such feelings
for I know I'll find somebody else
better than him
as expected
in so many ways I can imagine my triumph
and in the like manner the opposite of such.

ah such dilemma!
one must need to face
but with this in life
we learn and conquer
over throw our fear and obstacles

I can feel it
the one who is right for me
I won't give up
and I will find you
eventually for sure!

Saturday, June 16, 2012


I met a boy
almost perfect
wherein I often lose myself
I forgot most of the things I listed
the ideal list I'd like to call it

though I always remember them near the end
where most valuable lessons in the story are learned
often shared.

I know from that moment on
the next couple of days
is gonna be tough
things aren't just enough
for life is bound to happen
reality check

this guy I'm talking about
we know for sure
what and how we both felt
it's just that these things
are just a little bit complicated

bound to happen
especially these days...
our geographic location is one thing
but trust is our biggest key player here

I don't know what to feel really
perhaps I'm too affected
but no need to worry

bulletproofing is all I need
time past
I always look and find someone better
responsible,independent,religious,shared same values,kind & smart
the list goes on
perhaps some perks
or something that marks along those lines.

everything will be fine
back to normal all over again
but for sure I'll never forget this boy
who taught and shown me things in life
that will never be the same again.

Writing Bug

I caught the writing bug
yet again
creativity over flowing
all time high

so watch out for my
all original post
it will come out
soon...or so I hope.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


I'd like to become a drifter
the one that comes and goes
perhaps more of a transient maybe
not just an ordinary drifter but an explorer as well
the one who doesn't necessarily hitch rides,own a guitar and a hat to showcase one's talent
but the one who just travels
go with the flow
you know just like in the olden days.

I often imagine myself in a story
perhaps writing one
about me,my family,friends,dreams and aspirations
girl and boy blues
then that plot that just captures and jumps to every different category
a contemporary,action pack,mystery thriller romance mix with a little blood or gore or erotica?

I dunno.

I just want that sensation of all the things that I love in one
the uncertainty
twist and turns
that lead you back for more
or maybe if possible in multiple characters perspective
I know that's quite a few and bit ambitious
but yes I'd like to do that
all of that!

Skip beat | Tv Series Review

Skip beat, is a japanese  shoujo manga by Yoshiki Nakamura.It's about a girl name Kyoko Mogami (16 years old) who loves her childhood friend Fuwa Sho then later on discovers that he only keeps her around to act as a maid and cover his living expenses, as he works his way to become the top pop idol in Japan. Furious and heart broken, she vows to get revenge by beating him into show business.Kyoko met Ren Tsuruga, a very talented well known actor who works for a company LME the story takes flight,plot thickens,full of twist and turn and a brewing love triangle/love interest? perhaps?

My heart definitely skipped a beat after I saw a live in action taiwanese drama of one of my most favorite manga of all time! I was kind of skeptic at first ;) and was like one of those people who was like these people doesn't suit the part not mangaish at all but then as I started to watch and saw how the show progress I'm at awe! :O such talents OMG! they're amazing! very faithful to the manga but I wonder when will season 2 begin and I hope they're still the same actors and actresses everybody was so good and professional. What I like about the manga story line is that it's about humble beginnings in the  showbiz industry,what it's like being an actor/actress,how do they feel,react,practice,shoot films all those kind of stuff (well of course still depends on what the author) but still it's full of surprises,full of twist and turn,romantic kind of vibe,lessons about love,hatred,anger and everything else about life.

That's one of the trailer youtube has to offer you'll definitely love it or hate it or perhaps both? grow to love it maybe? I do suggest you watch it see it for yourself

more OMG moment :O
as I was typing and searching far and wide I stumble upon this! surely it's also one of those I CAN'T BELIEVE IT moments as well I didn't even know a game for PS2 existed *slaps self* I'm so gonna have one!

of course a walkthrough at last!

but the game is in japanese D'oh! *face palm*
time to sharpen my japanese skills pwahaha!
I saw it on one site this game won't boot on USA or European ps2 game consoles NOOOO!!!
but I'd still like to play XD

The World Poetry Movement:: Real or not real?

I received a mail.Inside contains a letter which states that I'm one of the semi finalist blah blah blah so on and so forth a chance to be one of the lucky winners and to be publish aha! attached to that are the contest rules and prizes,an empty envelope(in which you'll provide/buy your stamp) yeah it's not pre-paid :/ ,a copy of my poem a box to check to disclose copyright and artist profile if I'd like to post one, another brochure in which you'll enclose to the envelope if you'd like to order your own copy of the book with a solid promise of 100% return policy,Hardcover with the best paper mill that could last for generations.

So what's my problem? well to be honest with you I'm actually thrilled after reading all these good news but this thing sounds too good to be true I mean I saw a lot of entries some good, some bad and a lot of like and star ratings on the facebook page in which I thought my entry is done for, my chances are slim :| but then again I read this letter in which I'll admit kinda boosted my ego and embraced this writing ego of mine and I'm bother for everything looks and sounds legit but is it really? I searched far and wide people with mixed reviews about the whole thing some say it's bogus,a scam that's been there for so long that needs to be eradicated,some say even via youtube that they received a copy,saw their poem included in many poem anthologies,some say they never received any copy at all,it's too expensive for a book filled with amateur poets/writers these things made me think a lot and I dunno what to do at the moment lol so what do you think guys?

Road to Wellness: Cancer Cure Part II

Let's talk about what people do at the center.

After the orientation you'll immediately be hook up at the infusion room with an IV bag (yes, Intravenous) which will take about 3 to 4 hours max so it's up to you whether you want it in your arm or if you want to get a port done. (you'll be referred to a very good doctor who always do these sorta thing)

I think having a port is easier and less of a hassle 1.) you can move around freely after 2 weeks arm restrictions 2.) less worries about having an infiltration 3.) easy to maintain [after each IV session they always flush it with heparin so it won't clog/have any blood clot.If you are not using it any longer either just take it out the same way they put it in or just give yourself some heparin shots]

Day One, a wonderful lady from the front desk will give you a schedule to follow they do all sorts of stuff like Colonics, which cleans your colons after a couple of sessions you'll feel like a million bucks haha some say lighter, refreshed,rejuvenated, and cheery perhaps ^_^ what else? they also do Lymphatic massage, basic massage which helps drain your lymphatic system.Core Health, Leslie a guidance counselor will help you all throughout the program she'll give you assignments,cds/dvds to tune in and give you advice etc.Spiritual Guidance, Mark will help and guide you ,talk about religion,faith,belief anything goes. Foot bath, that looks like your regular foot spa but they have this ionizer and they put epsom salts for 30 minutes your foot will be soak into that mixture and you'll be surprised how the water changes color.

Everything about that center is amazing! they also have free wifi ;)
so check it out see for yourself ^_^
