Thank you, 2011

Dear 2011,
I want to say thank you because you've been such a wonderful year for me and for my family. I owe you a lot of different things, different opportunities and the like. Like many other years, you weren't perfect at all, but I want to thank you still for being fair enough and for giving me challenges along the way. I do feel braver, stronger and smarter now.

You made me stronger and smarter especially when it comes to choosing the right way to take; grabbing all the opportunities and other things constituting also to my personal views and lovelife.  I know, when it comes to the 'lovelife' thing I'm sort of a loser, and you 2011 made it difficult to get over. Then I'd still have to thank you for that - now that I've finally moved on, as I can see and reminisced myself during that process, I found it so funny and I felt like..hmm stupid at the same time (haha!). It's a tough year I must say. But through it all, I have all the hopes, dreams and wea…

Yey! EK!

Alrighty, photos! Happy New Year, everyone!

We Might As Well Be Strangers

by Keane


I don't know your face no more
Or feel the touch that I adore
I don't know your face no more
It's just the place I'm lookin' for
We might as well be strangers in another town
We might as well be living in another world


This was me 3 or 4 months ago... Telling myself, telling the whole world that perhaps it's good that we treat each other as strangers; well it started to that thing so it should be the ending too. But that was 3 or 4 months ago. No biggie. Now? It's a different story. *insert wonderful smile here*

Enough of the drama, I'm saying my advance hello and doing some advance wave to 2012! Cheers! ;)

Sandwich Pad

Image
This morning, I woke up very hungry. As I was looking for something to eat, I found this sandwich and my eyes sparkled. It was soooo yummy to see.. then I realized that it was just a notepad. Arrrgghh, I was too hungry to handle this, it's too cute to be just a notepad.

Tomorrow, I shall have a wonderful and super delish breakfast. ;)

Sandwich for breakfast! Yehey!
Looks really yummy!
And oh, it's a notepad.

"There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure." - Mark Twain


"A boy is a magical creature, you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you can't get him out of your mind. Might as well give up; he is your captor, your jailer, your boss and your master, a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words..."Hi, Dad!""- Allan Marshall Beck

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

The IMAX Edition!


Yesterday, my family watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and it was the IMAX experience. Before I say 'we're freezing inside the cinema' I must give a superb A for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol! Brad Bird really worked hard for this film to give the audience a breath taking stunts, effects and all sort. He made it! As the IMF is shut down, there's a nuclear war and the bombing that caused Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue and even indomitable to clear their organization's name. It was definitely and absolutely the start of the Ghost Protocol and the mission that isn't impossible-to-make-it-happen at all.

We love the humor of each character, a great combination with all the action packed scenes constituted with all the unbeatable stunts! With the all new improved and organized comeback of Mission Impossible, I have to say that it is mission accomplished. Tom Cruise is hotter than ever. The effects were really wild and it made …

Merry Christmas 2011

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
and a Happy New Year!
It's indeed a Merry Christmas for me and for my family, well even though they are sleeping now and I'm the only one who's awake and battling with the slow internet connection, it doesn't matter to me anymore... or it does but not that really big deal at all since it's Christmas time! ;)

I'm very thankful that we have food to eat, and I have a happy and awesome family to be with me to celebrate this wonderful birthday of Jesus Christ. I'm blessed, I'm happy, I feel awesome, I have superb friends too, and yes I couldn't ask for more.

We tend to wish for something, and when I say something it's definitely a 'material thing'. We always wanted what's best for us (of course, right?!) - the best gadgets, best dresses, best shoes, best everything, that sometimes we tend to take simple things for granted, that we are on the set o…

Very Beary

Image
It all started one evening as I was checking all my stuff at home, I accidentally found a cute bear puppet that I supposed wasn't mine because I was very surprised and wow-ed when I first saw it. It then made me wonder where it came from. It seems really really cuddly and cute so I tried playing with it, I even tried different dance and pose. Haha, it's really soft! I felt like I'm a kid again - the one who likes new toys and that having a new one is what makes the world go round and round. How I miss those days: before, the only thing you should worry about is your toy, the new toy in the mall that you want to buy, and the tantrums and the stubbornness of you specifically on those times when your momsie and papsie didn't allow you to purchase your prospected toy and you will be sad and lonely then finally they will give you what you want.. hahaha, brat! Since it's Christmas season, I always think that Christmas is a great excuse for kids to have new toys (just lik…

Pirates: The Dinner

Image
Real good friends, real good life. And I say.. Yeah! Last night, The Pirates went to dinner and also to witness some stuff that we could say... cool. We were really happy to see each other, we shared some stories, craziness and laughed once again just like before. The start of this last semester of our life wasn't nice at all; we knew that we're going to be away from each other because we need to have our different companies for internship. The process was severely sad, and yes, it's a part of life. Oh, the drama.

We had fun sharing new stories, jokes (even the corny ones), updates about life and anything not funny for others yet hilarious for us. The night was crazy. We didn't make it to the complete count, maybe next time we can (I'm hopeful). The boys really had so much fun - they went to Eastwood after and did the clubbin' thing, of course, there's fishing too. Hahaha! Now, we're still waiting for the photos to be uploaded, and I guess it'll tak…

The thoughts of gaming and Need for Speed: The Run

Image
Need for Speed: The Run, in an "underground world of illicit, high-stake racing". As i was browsing through different reviews, I must say I'm getting really stoked about Need for Speed, wait for it... The Run. I'm not really what you call a 'gamer' but I do play games/videogames whenever possible, whenever I'm the mood to play (well, I'm always in the mood to play) and whenever my schedule permits me.

When I was a kid (the days of family computer, gameboy and playstation) I always find time to escape siesta or nap time to play videogames. I couldn't stay long outside, run and play with my kiddo neighbors around our village due to some.. hmm. not really good health condition - as a kid I'm not that healthy though I'm energetic, I'm always the skinny one, oh well, until now I'm still the skinny one or I believe, the sexy one! (hahaha!). So back to the gaming stuff.. Playing video games was the real last resort to devastate my boring…

Escape

Image
This girl wants to glide, escape/get away from the earth to be with Thor; and if being with the hammer man isn't suitable.. other options would be: Do good - be a Jedi Master, be a girl version of Darth Vader, stroll around the city with Batman or be a Batgirl. Any of those.

This life isn't really lonely at all.. well, if you know how to cheer yourself up.

Immortals

Image
Since the rain didn't stop from pouring and actually made the whole Saturday gloomy, I've decided to drag my cousin to the cinema to see the movie 'Immortals', then the stoked moment came along.

Immortals (2011) written by Charley Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides and directed by Tarsem Singh, starring Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, John Hurt and more was a film based on Greeks myths of Theseus, a peasant who became a demi-god or actually became an immortal in line with Zeus, Athena and among other Greek gods and goddesses. The film was previously named Dawn of War and War of the Gods before it became or officially named as Immortals; Theseus is a mortal man whom chosen by Zeus to lead the fight with the antagonist King Hyperion who wants to obtain a weapon and devastate humanity. I really don't want to spoil it by telling the whole story here, just a little background for you will be fine, yes? ;)

I was amazed by the movie, I could say that I was really blown away.…

Rainy Friday

There's always a good and a bad in almost everything. Just like for this day that I have gone into the maximum level of my devastated emotions that while walking on the road earlier with the rain falling, my tears fell and were not suitable for everyone to see, a tearjerker situation that made me twist my ankle literally and figuratively.
I don't know if that 'emotions are fleeting' is true (for now) because mine is nailing me down that it matches the blur of my life right now. It feels cold and somewhat heavenly but I'm dealing on the contrary, maybe because I'm not happy of what I'm doing, and I cannot choose the other path I'm seeing for some reason that the world shouldn't know yet.
The rain is pouring non-stop, it makes me remember emo things and I know it isn't good, this is not me. Well, that's the bad part of today.. the good side is: I got the chance to spend time with my grandpa today, talking about politics and how I should act on…

Waddup D.

The first night is kinda gloomy, feeling sad, maybe. My eyes hurts in crying too much because of a nightmare. That, led me to fearsome day, I may not want to blink my eyes nor sleep for I can see the darkness and the creepiness of the unforgettable dream. I may be alive but on that dream I was dead. In all white, crying so hard and saying goodbye to people I love. I just couldn't take it much longer.

I could feel the month of December. Christmas spirit everywhere, giving gifts and Christmas plans are bound to shine. It's been a tough week for me. The last week of November made me feel alone, literally alone. My grandfather undergone an operation accompanied by my grandmother, I wanted to be with them in the hospital but I just can't, I have work and other activities that should be taken first before anything else. My grandmother told me that they'll be fine, and now, they are fine. They'll be home on Sunday, and I am really looking forward to that. I missed them so…
