Captain America: Civil War

Try as they might, the Avengers find it hard to leave a collateral damage free scene whenever they pursue their enemies. Despite their obvious efforts in making the world a better place, a part of the general public is demanding for accountability, prompting world governments to come up with a mutant registration initiative in an effort to protect their citizens from those who are actually protecting them. Considering what happened in Sokovia, such a political move is just understandable, but the Avengers are not in unison as to how they should react to the issue. Iron Man (Tony Stark) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) both agree, which is a first, but Captain America (Chris Evans) thinks that this would limit their efficiency and freedom as a group. When Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) is framed for a crime that he did not commit, Steve Rogers is forced to choose between his best friend and the ensemble that has been his family since he was thawed after decades in the ice.

[PERTH] ANZAC at Kings Park

Like Adelaide, Perth was more like another rest leg of my Australia trip, an opportunity to sit down, relax, and recover from all that occurred the week before. I don’t think I would even be including Western Australia in my itinerary if I had no family to visit there, not to mention the cheapo flight ticket I got from Air Asia X. And so that is clear, I did not go to Perth for sightseeing, although we still managed to squeeze in an attraction or two in the form of Kings Park and Botanic Garden.

[ADELAIDE] City of Churches the Movie

Nah, I just couldn’t think of a creative title, but I do imagine a horror screenplay that I can write in my head to summarize my stay in Adelaide. The only thing is that it has nothing to do with Adelaide, in general. You see, this Airbnb place I reserved was a really huge bungalow rented by two Chinese girls. Next to my room was a stock room with dolls and a little wooden pony. To get to the toilet, I needed to pass by a large and empty living room which had a good view of the equally spacious kitchen.

Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 6/Episode 1

6.1 The Red Woman
Jon Snow’s friends want revenge, but Ser Davos counsels them against doing anything rash. Sansa and Theon cross a frozen river to escape Ramsay’s hounds, but are still caught anyway. Theon prepares to sacrifice his life, when Brienne and Podrick arrive just in time to rescue them. She once again offers her services, and Sansa accepts it wholeheartedly this time around. Cersei rushes to meet Jaime and Myrcella, but her glee quickly turns into grief as she learns about her daughter’s fate. In Dorne, Ellaria launches another coup and assassinates Doran while the Sand Snakes murder Trystane. In Meereen, Tyrion and Varys wander about town thinking how they can fix such a mess. Ser Jorah and Daario find Daenerys’ ring. She has been taken to Khal Moro and is saved after dropping Khal Drogo’s name. They tell her that the place for a Khal’s widow is with the other widows at Vaes Dothrak. Back in Castle Black, Melisandre takes off her clothes, and then her choker, revealing a really old woman underneath it all.

[SYDNEY] Shirts Off at Bondi Beach

Gee, Bondi Beach is full of ripped guys taking their shirts off. How inconsiderate. They don’t care about how other people feel. By “other people” I mean us who are too lazy to lift a dumbbell, as if anyone has time for that shit, seriously. And then you suddenly find yourself wandering at Bondi with half naked people running in slow motion like they are auditioning for Baywatch. And suddenly, you’re, like, WHERE IS THE GYM? TAKE ME TO THE EFFIN’ GYM! I WILL WORK OUT! RIGHT NOW! TAKE ME TO THE GYYYYYYYM!!

[SYDNEY] Date a Koala

So sometimes you lose faith in going out with your fellow mammals, right? Because sometimes the dating pool starts to thin out or it’s not as interesting as it was before, right? Because sometimes it’s a prerequisite that you have a six pack or a V-Torso to get noticed, like you are auditioning for effing Century Tuna Superbods, right? In Australia, you have the option to try your luck with your marsupial cousins, you know, right? Maybe they aren’t as hard to please, right? So I went to Taronga Zoo, right?
