HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA!
Guess what guys, I actually forgot that it was her birthday. She called me through phone and was the one who said that today was her birthday. I am such a good son. Haha.
Her birthday is celebrated on April 8 but her birth certificate says April 18. I guess the attending physician/nurse was tired and wrote an extra line on her birth date. This is why we celebrate her birthday twice sometimes. Well actually, the anniversary of our car services shop happens to be on the 18. Haha.
I LOVE YOU MAMA! <3
I guess I was practically bored.
1: What would you name your future daughter?
I miss my family. I’m going home this Saturday though. Yey for summer vacation!
Aww thank you. I know I have always been beautiful.
Nope. But I said that line to someone.
Of course I went out.
Uhm yeah. Ahihihi.
No. “I love you” is very sacred to me. I don’t say it when I don’t mean it.
No. Why would I do that?
Yep. I quitted smoking you know.
I give it a few months.
Shut up! Yeah :(
Nope. Why would I cry when I’m practically mad. Those are two very different emotions.
That person you asked in the previous questions.
FUCK YEAH. Tapos na ang exams! Summer break na!
Only two at most. I’m not a slut. Haha.
No. Now why did we go to this topic.
Yeah. I’m good at being numb.
No. But I use lip balm sometimes. I use Nivea.
The same person in the previous questions.
Yeah. Paramore’s new album.
To get back in shape. Haha
Pumping blood to different parts of my body.
Uhm, on my head?
Last Friday. When we were saying our goodbyes.
We all do.
We all do. Medschool in my current situation.
Paramore nga ang kulit!
Your questions annoy me coz some of them are stupid.
No. It’s funny when people do that though.
Emo scars. I had that phase.
My relatives gave it to me.
No. Why would I? Unless that someone has bad breath.
Paulit-ulit ang kulit?!
Errr. I already answered this.
With someone else.I like cuddling with someone. ;)
I wish! So that I could see…
NO. That bitch.
I’ve always been in the shadows. But when one of our mentors sent me this private message, it pushed me to become a better dancer. But now, I’m really sorry master that I haven’t improved. I guess I’ve failed you. I’m back to where we started. A newbie at dancing. :|
ZERO DARK THIRTY.
Okay, this movie is not for the average movie-goer who just wants some entertainment. I admit, I was really bored with this movie. After watching the movie, the feeling I have contradicts that statement. This had a simple story to tell: FINDING BIN LADEN. Of course it was based on actual events, how stupid of me not to notice that. Anyway, like I said, I would really expect that the average movie-goer would not appreciate this movie especially if you’re not an American, British, Pakistani (no racism intended). We didn’t experience any terrorist attack so I guess considering how the events would relate into our lives, it would just be a thing with the international news. I think the only familiar thing here is the 9/11 incident which really shook the world killing hundreds (thousands?) of people. Thus, Osama Bin Laden’s popularity.
I could now imagine some people complaining saying that the movie sucks. The reviews of “average” people in the internet are actually funny. It’s like they never gave it a chance. But the critics of course recommends this movie. You really need to pay attention to detail here even if you’re gonna doze off half way along the movie (I was already yawning). This wouldn’t be Oscar worthy if the movie was actually bad like what people said it would be.
The pacing of the story is VERY SLOW. You have to listen to the dialogue especially with the confusion of the Arabic names and places like in Pakistan and Afghanistan (I admit) and the sequence of events. There are some scenes that would really capture your attention that would keep you glued into the scene but then after that, you might just want to get some popcorn or take a pea. Haha. The LAST THIRTY minutes of the movie would be the most climax of the movie until the end.
ZERO DARK THIRTY? Maybe it starts at ZERO 0:00, then a couple of boring and some shocking scenes making the movie DARK and the last 2:00-2:30 was the great THIRTY. ZERO DARK THIRTY. Bow.
Jessica Chastain. Personally, I don’t see anything special with her (sorry, being honest here). I didn’t like the way she portrayed the character. It would have been better if it was Julienne Moore (maybe because they both have red heads). I just think Julianne Moore could have delivered more emotion and could connect with audience.
My favorite line of Chastain:
I’m going to smoke everyone involved in this op and then I’m going to kill Osama bin Laden!
I think this was her best line and oh you could never forget THE ARGUMENT. Haha.
Anyway, I think we could agree that no matter who you are: a soldier, a husband, a wife, a congressman, a prisoner, a terrorist, a terrorist leader, or just a plain CIA agent, a lot of things would happen in our lives. In the end, no matter what happens, WE ARE JUST HUMAN.
Oh diba may moral story patong movie na to? San ka pa!
Sorry for riding with the bandwagon… BUT
I never had any knowledge of Les Miserables, never read the book, and I never saw any musical.
I knew Les Miserables because of the songs “I Dreamed A Dream” and “On My Own” sung on TV and maybe because Lea Salonga was starring in one musical.
This is gonna be an individual character critique or maybe a spoiler (or not, the fact that this franchise is very popular!) of LES MISERABLES (2012). I am speechless and I am very surprised with the cast especially with the “live” singing. I now get the hype. Don’t judge me!
Wow dude, I never knew you could sing. My mind was always telling me you were Wolverine. You deserved that Oscar nomination. And I hope you win. And to think that you almost turned this role down. It wouldn’t be the same without you.
I learned that you were requested by Hugh to be his co-star. You sing okay but you can still act the part though! Props for the 15-minute or less “appearance” on the movie and yet you garnered an Oscar nomination! The “I Dreamed A Dream” song was very emotional. Very emotional.
I don’t know. I hated him because of his lame singing voice (sorry). But in the end, you’ll learn to love (to hate) him. You’ll get it. I bet you get my point since a lot of you know the whole story.
Well, I’ve watched Mama Mia too. Girl, you do have the voice. Your soprano can reach the highest places! It can break glass! That’s a complement.
Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter
This was a perfect pair! I never knew that Sacha (from The Dictator, Bruno, Borat) could sing! Haha. Helena delivers well as always.
For these two actors I never heard of:
Where did you come from? It takes time to get comfortable with your acting since you’re a new comer but then again you delivered and killed “On My Own.” I literally clapped with no sarcasm.
Dude, your crooked nose was distracting but nobody would argue that you can sing! I wish I had that tenor you have. In my opinion, you had more chemistry with Eponine than Cosette (in the movie of course). Just saying.
The rest of the cast and the extras were great! Especially those who sang in the chorus!
I clapped non-stop until my palms hurt. Haha.
I get it know.
Of course this movie would be epic.
Of course it would be nominated for Best Picture, Costume Design, and Music.
I wish they would be nominated for Cinematography and Visual Effects. They really earned it!

Pinoy Ghost Stories: BACKPACK
Lahat naman siguro ng medical school ay may sari-sariling kwento kung multo ang pag-uusapan. Ito ay isa sa mga kwentong narinig ko mula sa isang doctor na nagbabantay sa grupo namin. Bigyan natin ng pangalang “Mark” ang lalaking nasa kwentong to.
Si Mark ay bagong laboratory technician sa Histology lab namin. Ilang araw pa lang siya nagtatrabaho at nagkaroon na agad siya ng isang nakakakilabot na karanasan. Mag-alas otso na ng gabi nang pauwi na si Mark. Naisipan niyang dumaan sa isang mas mabilis na daanan sa isang madilim na eskinita. Dala-dala niya ang kanyang backpack na nakakapit sa kanyang balikat. Habang naglalakad, naramdaman niyang may kumakalabit sa likod niya. Lumingon siya agad sa pag-aaklang magnanakaw ito na bumubukas na ng bag niya. Alam naman natin na laganap ang nakawan sa madidilim na lugar. Sa pagtalikod niya, wala siyang nakita kundi ang tahimik na daan sa likod niya. Siyempre nagtaka siya pero pinabayaan na lang niya ito at nagpatuloy sa paglalakad.
Malapit na siya sa lusutan kung saan ang mga jeep. Ilang hakbang na lang at biglang bumigat ang bag niya. Di na niya ito pinansin dahil siguro sa pagod sa trabaho kaya’t di na niya pinansin ang bigat na dinadala ng balikat niya. Narating na niya ang kalsada at may nakita siyang lalaki na bigla na lang tinuturo siya at sumisigaw. Nagtataka siya kung bakit siya tinuturo. Kinilabutan siya kasi mukhang takot na takot ang lalaking iyon sa kanya. Di naman sila magkakakilala. Nagmadaling maglakad ang lalaking yun palayo sa kanya. Siyempre ito si Mark medyo hinabol ang lalaki. Sino ba naman hindi magtataka kapag nangyari sa inyo yun?
Naabutan ni Mark ang lalaking iyon. Tinanong niya kung bakit siya pinagtuturo at bat ganun ang reaksyon niya nung makita niya si Mark. Kinuwento ng lalaki ang nakita ng kanyang dalawang mata. Sabi niya, may batang naka-angkas sa balikat ni Mark. Akala niya anak niya to pero nang makita ng lalaki na walang mukha ang batang iyon, kinilabutan na siya at sumigaw. Siguradong multo yun. Tumindig lahat ng balahibo ni Mark. Malamang.
Sumunod na araw, nilinis ni Mark ang mga garapon ng mga fetus sa lab. May isang fetus na nakatago. Ito ay di hamak nasa ilalim lang ng kanyang mesa. Ngayon ang fetus nay un ay nilagay na sa isang pwesto kung saan nakikita rin ito ng mga taong pumapasok sa lab. Sa palagay namin, ito yung batang naka-angkas sa balikat niya na humihingi lang ng konteng pansin.
Ayaw ng mga kaluluwa na kalimutan natin sila kaya sila nagpaparamdam. Hindi lang tao ang papansin, mga multo rin!
Advance Happy Halloween! At huwag natin kalimutan bisitahin ang mga pumanaw nating mga kamag-anak sa Araw ng Patay. Malay natin, bisitahin tayo at magparamdam. Sige ka!
A Funny (Not So Funny For Me) Story
One lonely evening, I was enjoying sipping orange juice from my water bottle when I accidentally slipped my finger inside it’s mouth, hole, whatever! Damn it. At first I thought, “Okay, I slipped my finger, no problem,” but then I realized it was getting really serious. I couldn’t get my finger out! I was swearing all over the place; saying all the effs and shits. Of course, I did put some lubricating agents like baby oil, lotion, cream, etc., hoping it would help my finger slide out of that darn hole. I tried everything. It was useless. I panicked though. I didn’t know what to do.
I went downstairs (a carinderia) and asked for help. They were all laughing. Your initial reaction would be that. Yes. How in the world would someone slip his finger inside a hole? It was ridiculous to even think of it. But it did happen. Shit. They put all sorts of stuff. Again. Lubricating agents: lotions, facial creams, and the worst was cooking oil (eww). It did not work. Why? One, my finger was so freaking fat it wouldn’t slip out. Two, blood was already accumulating and it’s not circulating very well. This was bad. Really bad. My finger was getting numb and it was turning purple. It also grew in size. It looked like a zombie’s finger. :))
I asked for a saw. They provided a saw used by the carpenters. A VERY BIG SAW. I was saying, “Shit, ano bayan! Wala bang ibang lagare jan? Di to kahoy! Daliri to!” Oh yes, it was a funny scene indeed. I was surrounded by three women (working at the carinderia) and two girls who live next door. Fvck. I was so ashamed. One girl initially sawed through the plastic. Another girl took her turn. And then sudenly everyone wanted to saw my fvcking finger off! I was shouting because they were really getting restless. Haha. It seems they like to see my finger cut off than to see it slip off the damn hole.
Inside my head I was saying, “Oh God, I think I’m gonna lose a finger today. I’m sorry for all the sins that I’ve done.” I was seriously thinking of going to the hospital, present my situation, and they would actually amputate my finger off. From then on, I would live my whole life without an index finger.
Finally, the carpenter came. Yup. The carpenter who owns the saw. He was laughing. Why do people laugh at my situation? It’s always their initial reaction. Haha. I asked him if he had a smaller saw, the ones used in cutting steel rods, and YES HE HAD! I was already relieved and faith in myself was restored. Haha. It was time consuming though. He was cutting through the plastic slowly with precision making sure that it would not cut my finger off!
After a few minutes, my finger’s saved! The saw was like a few millimeters from piering my finger! This memory shall remain for many years to come. What’s left on my finger are bruises, marks, scratches and some minor wounds. It’s still painful right now but it’s better having an index finger than none at all! :)
It took 2 hours for my whole finger to be saved!
Thank you Manong Karpintero!
