Movie of the Week: Piedras
- I am officially addicted to European movies. =)
- Ang galing ng pagkakadugtong dugtong ng stories nung how many? Halos kalahating dosenang characters ata yun e, galing!
- Kung gusto mo makita ang magiging itsura ni Famke Jannsen (Jean Grey) pagtanda, titigan mo si Isabel.
- Nandito na naman si Lola Dueñas ata yun, basta yung makulit ang role sa El Mar Adentro, makulit din ang role niya dito, addict naman siya ngayon.
- I particularly liked the subplot of the lady taxi driver, her family, and as it turned out, her connection to Leire and later to everyone else.
- Hindi cute na retarded si Anita pero naaaliw ako sa kanya, with the yellow rubber shoes and stick people drawings.
- Another of those large-cast-we-are-all-inter-connected type of film.
- Wag mo na itanong dahil hindi ko rin alam kung bakit “Stones” ang title.
- Kawawang Leire, pinagpalit ng boyfriend para sa ibang lalaki, hahaha, sorry Leire, lalaki rin ang gusto ni Papa Kun mo.
Moron of the Week: The Bitch We Call “Life”
Minsan nakakainis na, hindi mo alam kung anong gusto palabasin ng buhay mo. Minsan nakakaaliw kasi tatangayin ka off-course (hyphenated ba yun o hindi? Kita mo na nakakainis talaga!) only to find out na ayos na pala ang lahat, merong alternative na naghihintay kaya ka natangay pero minsan wala e. Minsan ginagawa mo na lahat ng sa tingin mo ay tama pero it turns out to be wrong after all or kung hindi man, insufficient to fill your needs and those of others. Ewan, siguro sinisisi ko lang ang buhay dahil ayoko maging moron of the week pero sa totoo lang minsan hindi mo rin maiiwasan maasar. Naiinis ka rin sa buhay di ba?
En el infierno enterita enterita nos vamos a quemar... AMEN.
Intention of the Week: Speedy Recovery of My Uncle
He is in the hospital. Yes, he is ill and he needs prayers, lots of prayers so please include him in yours. You don’t need to know his name, just mention in your prayers “Dan’s uncle” and I believe “God” would know which is which. I also wish him a speedy recovery, I do everyday but not through prayers because “God” and I have issues right now. Medyo cool-off muna kami kaya hindi kami nag uusap. Pareho lang naman tayo ng gagawin, yung wishes and hopes niyo nga lang ifo forward niyo sa kanya through prayers. Mine would be similar to yours, only that I would be appealing to nature by sheer force of will. Please, pray for him.
World Affairs: Ang alam ko nagkaroon na yata ng UN Resolution to deal with North Korea. Suspense thriller naman tong mga ito, mamaya bigla na lang mambomba yang si Kim Jong Il ha. Kaya Gloria manahimik ka muna ng kaka sipsip mo kay Bush baka mapagdiskitahan tayo niyan. Pag nabomba tayo dahil sa kakasipsip mo mumultuhin talaga kita promise. Bilog pa rin pala ang mundo.
Showbiz: There’s a celebration because the new Regine-Robin film took in 4.3 million pesos on its opening day. If I remember correctly, Sukob grossed 13 million on its first day, You Are the One had 11 million, so what is the fuss all about, honestly? Besides, aren’t they a little too old for movies of the romantic-comedy genre? Anyway, positive naman ang feedback kaya sige panoorin niyo.
Depression Update: Well, as stated in the title, depression brought something home to dinner. Well, to be straightforward, depression brought an extra workload of 4 hours a day/5 days a week, answering calls from Mexico, along with a monthly paycheck to the tune of... Sorry can’t discuss, it turns out that confidentiality is valued in the company. Grounds for termination daw yun. Anyway, I would be starting on Tuesday, night shift. Part-time lang kaya I would be able to do it and my studies simultaneously. By the way, if you happen to be fluent in Portuguese (do Brasil) and Spanish (de Mexico), send me a private message, that is if you would like to try this out. Sayang naman ang opportunity. Ako naman ay depressed pa rin. Now I ask you, what has your depression brought you this week? Who knows what mine would bring next...
Languages: Nag start na ako ng French/Italian grammar review. Weird yung French review, dumirecho na sa grammar... Hehehe. Pwede naman e, you get to read better but you won’t be able to speak that well for lack of practice. Ok na rin. Practical application na nung Spanish yung sa call center, di na ako nagre review ng grammar, hands-on na sa Tuesday e. Game na!
Academics: Tadtarin ba naman daw ng exams ang linggong ito. At talagang hiniwa hiwalay pa ng araw, sayang ang pamasahe ano ba! So ayun nga may pasok pa rin ako the whole week kahit officially done na ang sem last Monday. Tapos meron pa hanggang Monday – Tuesday next week! Hay ano ba, pahinga naman po! Sem break na po ang utak, sem break na!
Future: Because of the new job, future would look a little different. After graduation, part-time job would become full-time, full-time studies would become part-time via MA Asian Studies. Wala lang, trip lang para continuous learning habang nag iipon ng two years pa. Then lipad na kung saan pwede, foreign service! Foreign Service! Hehehe, asa. Bago na naman ito next week.
Surroundings: Wala na namang tubig. Ano ba, nasa disyerto ba tayo? Ang sistema yata e every after three days laging nawawalan dahil bumabara ang tubo hanggang ayusin na ulit. Hanep talaga. Nag field trip kay Oble kasama ang 3 Span 13 classmates, umupo sa Quezon Hall hanggang dumilim na (mga bandang 7 PM), nagkwentuhan. Brother addict pa rin sa theme song ng Atlantika.
