things that i learned....

in 2008 i learned a lot of things....

1. great things come in small packages
    - Trinity H. Uyquiengco was born on February 2, 2008. A very cute, poopy and noisy baby at first. But now she's the joy in our lives. She makes us laugh by just tilting her head to the side. She makes us go "Aaaawwwww" when she speaks. She makes us proud when she took her first step.

2. love surprises even the most cynic of us
    - March 5, 2008 will always and forever be the most amazing date for me. I wouldn't have thought that I would find the "one" in Bubba Gump of all places...but I did. I have never been this happy and in love. Everyday I thank God for him. Everyday I picture my future with him. And Everyday, I fall even more in love with him.

3. love doesn't always mean you'll be happy everyday but it may surprise you
   - In contrast to what I just typed above...there were times that I got hurt. But in those times, I just pray. Pray that we will get pass the fight and hurting. I believe that these were tests. We were tested on how much we could endure. We were taught how to fight for each other and not with each other. We learned to protect each other. Surprises are big, soft and fluffy...haha.

4. love comes to those who wait...even if you have to kiss a lot of frogs along the way
    - it is not my story to tell. but at least now she listened. love hurts, yes...but it doesn't mean you have to let it. it is what it is.

5. true friends stay or comes home
   - my best friend came back. eventhough she didn't stay, I had the most amazing time with her. It felt like we were never apart. I love her so much. And I miss her. She's an amazing person and a true friend. but then there are some who just drifted away. I hope he's happy and doing well.

6. not everyone is your friend
   - an issue about me surfaced in my work place. an issue that is so absurd and untrue. just thinking about it makes me so angry. they've said some things about me and when i do find out who said it, no more miss nice girl. I find myself un-merciful about this.

7. there are really no good shows anymore
   - at least here in the philippines. but this is just my opinion.

8. you have to take good care of yourself
   - i've been sick more this year (2008) than last year (2007). But I am blessed to have my family and Erick taking care.

 I guess that's it. here's to the new year and the hope for a better, brighter future.

They heard the cries of the fans.....

I'm sorry that she lost a great gig but relieve that she won't be directing the remaining books in the twilight saga.

Yup, I'm talking about Catherine Hardwicke (for people not in the "know" - she directed Twilight) Summit entertainment wants to release NEW MOON by 2009 or early 2010. Also they want to shoot NEW MOON back to back with ECLIPSE. (Kinda like Harry Potter) Apparently she needs more time to prep to bring her vision of NEW MOON to the big screen and Summit can't give her that...I mean, if you have a cash cow in your hands, wouldn't you milk it every chance you get?

I hope they really get Cuaron. I wonder what will happen if Guy Ritchie directs it (segueway to RockNRolla...will watch it later - review to follow)

So cheer up...hopefully someone will breathe new life to New Moon - no pun intended.

Fighting...

my heavy eye lids for no reason at all.

i woke up around 10am yesterday...haven't slept since then. it's now 4:46am today. Trying so hard not to sleep...why? because i'm bored. because i've gotten use to not sleeping at all.

please cure me.

Twilight Fanatics!!!

so i was able to get erick to watch twilight..hehehe.

anyway, this is not a review about the movie. it was good. as erick and i get comfortable in our seats, i had a very strong suspicion that the only reason why the movie house was full was because of Robert Pattinson (he plays edward cullen...duh!) I told erick to brace himself for shrieks...Lo and Behold, as Edward appears on screen, teens and not so teens shrieked and screamed as if the actor was there in person.

Now I would understand if he was there in person. But these people just ruined a crucial part of the movie (when the cullens are introduced...when edward was introduced) with all the screaming, we couldn't hear what was being said. Not all people in that movie house have read the book. So when these girls screamed, a person behind us told them to shut up and that they can't hear what is being said. And what did those girls do? Well, they just rolled their eyes and ate their popcorn...how rude right?

So my message is this...I know the guy is cute but COMMON COURTESY PEOPLE!!! We paid good money to watch the movie and we deserve to watch it without PEOPLE LIKE YOU ROBERT PATTINSON FANATICS screaming everytime he's on screen. HE'S NOT GOING TO HEAR YOU!!!!!

There should be a new rule: No Cellphones, No Narrating, NO SCREAMING FOR THE CUTE GUY when in you're in the theater.



love, love, love

this is a bit late but....

two movies you just have to watch...i'm not kidding!

Across the Universe

Summary by imdb.com: A dock worker Jude travels to America in the 1960s to find his estranged father. There he falls in love with sheltered American teenager Lucy. When her brother Max is drafted to fight in the Vietnam War, they become involved in peace activism. The film title and main characters are named after various songs by The Beatles.

August Rush (now this is a MUST SEE)

Summary by imdb.com: The story of a charismatic young Irish guitarist and a sheltered young cellist who have a chance encounter one magical night above New York's Washington Square, but are soon torn apart, leaving in their wake an infant, August Rush, orphaned by circumstance. Now performing on the streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger, August uses his remarkable musical talent to seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth.

I swear, it might seem that these movies are boring but they're not. Especially August Rush. If you don't believe me, check out the videos that i've uploaded in my multiply page.

now go! spread the love!

Hay Denise...

i know you're not into Sandwich but i thought that this song would make you smile a bit. i does mention sunsets in manila bay...although there's no mention of your building...i hope you'll like it. and if not..ha! i made you miss the philippines more. aaahhh..ho-ho's!

i miss you and i'll talk to you soon.


if found...please return in one piece

someone said that in order for a person to be happy and content is to have a balance life. You have to balance your personal and career life everyday. that means you have to have enough time for work and family/love live/friends.

but here's the thing. i know that my life is not as balanced as it seems. but that's ok for me. because as far as i'm concerned...for now i am content.

chillaxing my way to the top. i'll rest when i'm dead.

The Emo Convention has begun...

a very short update as i prepare to do the thing that i have to do...

i'm pretty much into my third round of starbucks coffee since i left work...driving (or blazing) through C5 was something i thought i'll never do with the new car. o well...anyway...as i mooched off my cousin's mac i realized that most people in here are getting ready for the emo convention (aka MCR concert). lots of black...white...red...gray..over waxed hair with the flip thing...guyliner...looking like the dead make up...fake blood...black skinny jeans and chucks. i feel soooo under dressed. most of them are still in high school - i think.

hay naku...this is all worth it...i get to see papa mikey again - HOT!!! love em emo guys. hehe.

this will be so corny and i hope you won't hold this against me...See you at the black parade! wahahaha!


ps...i didn't know angelina was pregnant!! ooohhh...another cute baby.

The good die young...


R.I.P Heath Ledger (1979-2008)

Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie,
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be,
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.

Robert Louis Stevenson's Requiem
