RESTING PLACE

IMG_4009.JPG

Let the pain have a rest,

Give your heart a minute to breath;

Show yourself a little respect,

Just break that stupid-stupid ache.

You are not alone,

Don’t do this on your own;

You have them and me,

Call us your home.

SPLIT

wupx6thcoim8p9r6j5f9aszhqyf

I enjoyed the movie despite some negative reviews. I liked the performance of James McAvoy, it was fun and admirable to watch he turns into different roles with clarity.

What I like more about this movie is that it leaves my son thinking, referring to google and discussing about dissociative identity disorder.  Yes, there are some sensitive topics, but it’s bearable.

This movie will help us realize the true madness of mental health problem and the need to help them.

Verdict: 8/10

ALIWAGWAG FALLS

Aliwagwag Falls is one of the most visited natural attractions in Davao Oriental, Philippines.  It is also considered as the country’s highest waterfalls. It has s a series of more than 130 cascading waterfalls with different rock formations, shapes, and various heights.  Aliwagwag falls looks like a stairway to heaven that’s why it’s regarded as one of the most beautiful falls in the Philippines.”

My friends and I went to this falls in the midst of approaching typhoon in Mindanao, Philippines.  At that time of travel, there was a low-pressure area consisted with rains and massive winds.

I admit it was a little scary to travel because we need to pass some places which prone to a landslide on the mountain or the rock falls. Since we don’t have much free time after the holiday break, still we went there with full of excitement.

We arrived at noon time safe and sound.

Because of the typhoon, Aliwagwag falls water current was so madly strong and it was really dangerous at that moment to enjoy the majestic flow.

We were instructed that we can still swim in some parts of the falls where it was safe and it was on the top view.

Despite the bad weather, we’re still able to visit the splendid falls and enjoy the scenery. Aside from that, I was with my son and good friends to complete the fun we hoped to experience.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2

John-Wick-2-Poster-NYCC.jpg

What a bloody Valentine’s day I had with John Wick.

It was a blast to see our boogeyman’s life who tried to retire from the job, but has never given the chance. In this chapter 2, he returned to the felonious underworld to repay some debts which took him into an unexpected twist of fate as the world’s deadliest killer.

In this movie, not apart from the chapter 1, Keanu Reeves still acting at his best. As a man of few words, a lot of headshots have been blown than words uttered from him. I think there is no other man could do it.

John Wick: Chapter 2 has the best design of crazy adrenaline ass kicking. It doubles the action sequence moves without wagering the quality. The sound effect of guns shrieking, cars raging and heavy fights are in the best category.

I enjoyed the movie, not only because I am a huge fan of Keanu, but to the movie itself, I was entertained.

I can’t wait for the chapter three as Jonathan’s final message “I will kill them all”  left me with the question “In this cruel world, who will help John Wick?”

Verdict: 9/10

I ❤❤❤ YOU

My last vacation in the Philippines was quite peaceful and sweet.  Most of the time, I stayed only at home and hanging out with my son. It was not really an extravagant vacation as what other people expected. In fact, It was really my plan to spend my 35 days with my family especially with my kid.

During my entire break, I have seen some changes with my son. He is no longer my baby, but not quite a teenager too. He doesn’t want to be kissed and hugged in the public. We don’t walk together holding hands, but he just put his arms around me. He keeps on checking with my schedules when he was at school and never skip a day without following me around.

We both still love watching movies and do some food trips. He never has the patience to wait for me when I do shop. He’s not a branded person, to buy a casing for his cell phone is a major spending for him. Still, he doesn’t want me to wear shorts and sexy dresses. When I put some dark eyebrow makeup, he said ew, that I don’t look good at all. He just wanted me to be simple and unnoticed.

We never stop talking about this and that. He still sleeps in my room. I always reprimanded him for being lazy and giving too much attention to his mobile and play station. I am happy that he has good friends around, who helped him to improve his personality from being a killjoy to cool guy. See, he talks with my friends now, unlike before. Yes, still he has his mood swings, but it becomes irregular now.

We still argue and fight, but we knew we always have each other.

If I am still in the Philippines today, he would be my pretty date.

Who says Valentine’s Day is exclusive only for lovers?  We can date anyone!

Happy ❤❤❤ day to all 🙂

CHILDHOOD WISH

When I was young

I never have the chance to play with dolls
Because we don’t have a lot of bucks
I played only jump rope and tags
I kicked the cans and laugh out loud.

When I got the job

And have enough cash
I bought these little dolls, one by one
Sometimes I played with them remembering my past
If I could just turn back, how wonderful it would last.

But I never regret what has been done
Even without the dolls, friends had come
There are always good memories to talk about
When we made and played only with the paper doll.

So my little pretty ones
You came late, but I got you now
You filled up my childhood wish
Thank you, I have some fun.

Hello Jumbo

If you remember my previous post about our dog Jumbo, well, I met him again last December. We haven’t seen for almost two years, but he jumps on me closely the moment I entered the door.  Of course, I gave him my warmest hello.

Yes, I did my promise. I took care of him and walked him in the neighborhood too.  He was wagging his tail and kept on running as if it was his first time to go around. I think he was happy to be with me.

Honestly, it feels so good to see him.

This is Jumbo now and he’s 10 years old.  My father dyes his hair so it’s kinda messy.

The Legend of the Blue Sea (K-drama)

bluesea20-00986

Sometime during August 1598, newly appointed governor Dam Ryung (Lee Min-Ho) stays for a night at an inn run by Mr. Yang (Sung Dong-Il). During that evening, Mr. Yang shows Dam Ryung a captured mermaid named Sim Chung (Gianna Jun). Later that night, Dam Ryung releases her into the ocean and, before she swims away, Sim Chung reaches out her hand to Dam Ryung which he briefly holds.
In the present day, Joon-Jae (Lee Min-Ho) is a smooth-talking conman with magician like abilities. He works with Nam-Doo (Lee Hee-Joon) and Tae-O (Shin Won-Ho). For their next score, Joon-Jae impersonates a prosecutor and swindles a large amount of money from a wealthy suspect’s mother. Joon-Jae then travels abroad and stays at an oceanside resort. Meanwhile, Sim Chung is swept up in a tidal wave and washed ashore near the oceanside resort. She sees Joon-Jae.

This drama is like my comfort food; warm and familiar.

The legend of the blue sea managed to bring the characters into satisfying portrayal. The relationship of the two main leads stands out as the finest legend of sweetness and impressive fairytale.

Though we have Lee Min-Ho and Gianna Jun’s combined talent, the story writing has not become the perfect drama at all. It was predictable, and though there was an appearing of slight twist and turns, still there was no element of surprise. It was just so enjoyable and relaxing to watch, avoiding you not to be pestered with any inconsistencies that weighed down from numerous episodes.

The finale of the show seized with lots of emotions, apparently with goodbyes and reunions,  plus lots of love and kisses. They wrap-up all with perfections, giving everyone a happy and satisfying ending.

I’m pretty sure you will leave the screen with a big smile and a happy heart.

Verdict: 8/10

GIVE ME SOME TIME

I just need a little time to be alone, to taste the melancholy, to get upright and face the challenges again. This time, I don’t need someone to sit beside me, an empty chair will be enough. I just have to know the beauty of solitude and where it will lead me.

I miss you every day

GOBLIN: The lonely and Great God (K-drama)

4914_goblin_nowplay_small_oxgpcrm

Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an immortal goblin and protector of souls. He lives with an amnesiac grim reaper (Lee Dong-wook) who is in charge of taking deceased souls. Together, they see the dead off into the afterlife. One day Kim Shin meets a girl, Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun), who has a special ability to see ghosts, and is destined to be his bride and return him to ashes.

Goblin came with a bang and went out with a bang-bang. The story was written very well; unique, strange, but beautiful. The love affair was pretty epic. It was a parade of love, death, goodbyes, and chances. You will witness the lonely soul who outlives others because of immortality and to understand how to value life from no purpose and emptiness.

This drama is almost perfect in every aspect. The plot was exceptional. The cinematography was amazing. There were a lot of beautiful and picturesque scenes,  the outfits were classy and even the OST gave a major plus. It seems everything fits together perfectly.

No questions from the casts appearances and acting. Our Goblin Gong Yoo ( Kim Shin) has the ability to capture each emotion he portrays. His eyes can act, can laugh and cry without tears. He acted all out seamlessly. His bride Kim Go-Eun (Ji Eun Tak) plays a very cute character. She has a solid acting ability and really a versatile actress. Along with the other actors, they were able to develop their charms and create their own highlights. It wasn’t very difficult to recognize their significance at all.

A must watch Korean drama. Prepare your mind to blow and your heart to melt up.

Verdict: 10/10

HOMESICK

Screenshot_2017-02-02-08-43-37.png

I’m back from my vacation and I felt a pang.

This is not strange or unfathomable because I always knew this kind of feeling, this is homesickness.  The difference is that it’s hitting me hard this time.

I miss everyone back home.

Romantic Doctor -Teacher Kim- Kdrama 2016

iheartdrama

“Boo Yong-Joo was a famous surgeon with the nickname of “Hand of God.” He suddenly disappeared and nobody knew exactly why. Boo Young-Joo is now as Teacher Kim and he calls himself the Romantic Doctor. He enjoys his life in seclusion.
Kang Dong-Joo became a doctor to win somebody over and Yoon Seo-Jung becomes a doctor to be recognized by somebody. After they meet Teacher Kim, they learn about life values and comfort from love.”

Honestly, medical dramas never failed to mesmerize me. I always respect those who value the lives of their patients and hated those who thinks only what they can get from them; either profit or glamor.

Romantic Doctor demonstrates this kind of scenarios in the medical world. The shows possessed with compassion and right prescriptions of righteousness and idealism. Some have a conflict characters which suffered a tragic downfall from their past, but eventually, they got to redeem.

This drama has one of the most heartwarming stories in 2016. I truly enjoyed the show!

Verdict: 9/10

Annyeong-haseyo everyone!

Just have some fun wearing this HANBOK, a Korean tradional dress during JOSEON period. 

I love to watch Korean historical dramas which caused me interest of their classical and elegant attire. I was just wondering how could they even carry with such heavy dress gracefully.  I can’t move fast while wearing the hanbok, I was even sweating, but I truly enjoyed it. I feel like I was doing kdramas too!
