movie pick: My Sister's Keeper

I watched a DVD of My Sister's Keeper last Saturday and until now I'm getting goosebumps whenever I get to remember the story. I could say that it's one of my favorites!

I'd give it a 5-star rating!

Well, I basically love movies that could make me cry in laughter or in sympathy. Now, I'm trying to get a copy of the book...I hope I could find one in the bookstores.

Spoiler Alert:
•Cameron Diaz still looks pretty even she's bald
•The girl with cancer pretty looks convincing...she sure does look like she has cancer
•I love the part when the family went to the beach with "Feels Like Home" by Chantal Kreviazuk playing on the background
•I didn't know about the Dyslexia disease

link to Survivor Philippines fan site

Lately, I got hooked with the reality TV show "Survivor Philippines: Palau". And now that it's down to the final three: Justine, Jeff, and Amanda. One of them will be crowned the 2nd Sole Survivor in the Philippine's franchise. But before the verdict closes, I'd like to spill out my personal views on each of the 3 remaining cast aways.

Amanda Van Cooley :32:
In the early part of the show, she left an impression as a 'feminist'. She's part of the girl-alliance that planned to oust all male cast aways, which was carried out successfully in the end.

I admire her for playing the game cool. She knows her goals. She was consistent for me. She knows what is in stake for all her decisions. She knows her reasons and ground. And most of all she stood by her friends as much as she could (Mika and Jeff).

During the final days when everyone went whacked, she also became emotional and yet remained to be strong. She's upfront and she never said bad things against the other remaining cast aways as I could recall. She left a room for respect. That's why she's my sole survivor since Mika got voted off.

Jeff Gaitan:46:
She's strong in her own way. It may not be what everyone expected but I did appreciate her somehow. I'm just disappointed when she sacrificed her original alliance.

Justine Ferrer:33:
On the first day I hated her because of she shouted on an elder cast away. When she was sent to "isla purgaturyo" I admired her endurance, strength and desire to stay in the game.

But in the last days, she has shed her true colors. She has a bad-mouth and she's disrespectful. It's a freakin' game so what's her problem if someone's going to turn their back on her. It's a strategy! It's how others would want to play the game! So therefore I concluded...I don't like her (no offense).

For Tara and Charles ---> :42:
Please...listen to what you're saying! Maybe you'll realize how pointless the both of you are! Blabber mouths!

hang-over days

I watched the movie "HANGOVER" last night. I expected some hard laughs...and I did laughed hard. But I didn't expect to hit me in my blind spot.

I could not sleep after watching the movie. I was smiling while I'm lying in my bed, remembering all the crazy times in my younger years. Take note: I really do mean "CRAZY"! And the sad part is I miss all the fun times...I miss my crazy friends...and I miss myself being crazy. Oh well, growing up do *stinks* in some ways. One way of relieving this sad feeling is to write it down. So here goes...

Running/Playing/Soaking ourselves under the rain
We ♥ the rain! It never made us frown back in high school. Right after classes we'd walk our way home not minding our uniforms, bags and books to get wet. We'd chase each other in the streets.

Cinema Goofs
We we're only minors when we wanted to watch R-18 movies. So we faked our ID's. We didn't enjoyed the movies but we had fun:
-sitting far from each other then talking loudly inside the cinema
-using the other gender's comfort room (hahahaha)
-spying on every couple inside the cinema...catching their gooOoeey moments

Best Valentines Date Ever!!!
Yes, I do mean the best I ever had! It was a date with my bestfriends: Lester, Kiam, Padz, Lhot and Lhab. Everything was perfectly planned. The place: Punta del Sol by Lhab; the food: I cooked; the baloons & flowers: by Lester; the wine & beer: by Lhot, Padz, and Kiam; transportation: by Lester's kuya. We brought a cassette with our favorite musics, we played games, we laughed all night, and everything was fun and unforgettable.

Taxi Extra-Challenge
We stroll in groups so it's hard for us to get a taxi ride. But there are times when we get to meet cool taxi drivers. We were 7 people and we fitted inside a taxi! I got to lie in the lap of 4 people in the back seat plus 2 people were sharing the front seat.

Ten-te-ne-nen!!! Alcohol is a big part of my younger years. Most of the fun and crazy stuffs were when we were drinking. We joined beer drinking contest using a different name. We were chased by dogs when we entered a "No Trespassing" property and ended up with scratches when we escaped through the barbed wires. We cut classes and spend the day in drinking bars. We sang, danced, laughed, and fell so hard that we'd love to do it the next day, again and again. All the stories and the goofs in between left a marked in my memory (emo mode). I can't even write or tell everything, I can only afford a smile when I look back.

Extra-curricular events
My friends and I were active ni joining civic events. We love to organize reunion parties for our high school batch. We joined in different local contest. One embarrassing contest is the "F4" look-a-like, I played the San Cai role *hahahaha*. Our boys almost-always grab the championship trophies in basketball leagues and there were unforgettable victory parties. Geez....

Good thing is I remember everything!!! Not like some who forgets the fun and all that remains is a bad hang-over. Mine is a great hang-over! Cheers!
