Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor)

It's been five years since I last posted. I'm thinking of coming back to this blog but we'll see. For now, I would like to say:

Maligayang Araw ng Kagitingan! (Happy Day of Valor!)

This post is to commemorate our heroes -- the Filipinos who died to give us the freedom from colonizers and the modern day Filipinos who continuously work to help us maintain our freedom and make our lives in the country a little better each day.

Maraming salamat po, bayani.

A Thousand Years by Nicholas McDonald

I never thought A Thousand Years can be sung by a guy but Nicholas McDonald did it and he almost made me cry.

Reaction to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

This contains a little bit of spoilers.

I have not read the book nor read the reviews.  It was a random decision brought on by three factors:  cheapness of the movie ticket, limited choice (either that or The Conjuring), and plenty of time.  It turned out to be a great decision because of Lena Headey (who here agrees, please raise your hand).  She was the best thing about the movie.  She was 3-parts sexy accent, 3-parts bad-ass, and 3-parts sleeping.  Even asleep she was awesome.

The movie was OK to pass the time.  It felt icky when they got to the part where the two characters turned out to be siblings after kissing passionately.  Again, I did not read the book so do not judge me for feeling there was some kind of wrong from that point onwards.  Hopefully, they're not really siblings.

I did not have any expectations when I bought the ticket but so many details were unexplained.  Some just suddenly popped out from nowhere so I had more questions than answers at the end.  Lastly, the movie did not motivate me to read the book.

I know it is a trilogy so they will probably make a second movie.  Maybe I will watch it if Lena is there again and has more exposure even if she will still be partly asleep because, as I have said, she is awesome regardless.

Restore factory setting of life

All the memories I stored in my phone was wiped out.  I don't know how it happened.  My contacts, photos, voice recordings, messages, customized settings... everything.

Ironically, I don't feel bad.  I feel... relieved.  I can finally start over.

It's not giddiness that's making her smile but awkwardness and the twinkle in her eyes is not bliss but the tears that she's holding back.

The Voice PH: Taw and Kimpoy "Without You"

The whole 3 minutes gave me goosebumps.  It was a battle and a duet at the same time.  They tried to win while also trying to bring each other up.  It was beautiful.

140 is not enough

Tweeting when what I really want is to write a novel.  It's funny because I don't even know what to tweet nor write about.
