plunder games

One day to go and it will be the Philippine premiere of the movie “Catching Fire”, the second in the Hunger Games trilogy.  I am a huge fan of both the books and the first movie, and I am hoping the second movie is a very good adaptation as well. For those who have not […]

Over dinner last weekend – I actually could not remember how it came up – we started talking about chick flicks, light romance movies that I had the privilege to watch and enjoy.  Hubby gave his girls a weak smile, admitted he also watched “While You Were Sleeping” (“What??

the remedy

Another long weekend, and we’re still having gloomy weather. Sure we had short glimpses of sunshine for a good part of Saturday and Sunday, but the sudden warmth had somewhat taken its toll on my lungs.  I woke up Sunday morning with a grainy feel to my throat, signs of an impending bad cold, and […]

It must be the season, the long days of rain and drizzle, or just the gloomy, grey weather this morning, or the overcast skies.  It must be something to do with hormones, or maybe the (slightly) lowered sugar level in my system.  But yes, I’m coming out in the open, acknowledging that […]

Sometime in late July, Twitter was all abuzz (a-tweet???) with thumbnail images of Kristen Stewart hooking up with her Snow White and the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders, a preview of more explosive things to come as US Weekly Magazine featured more these scandalous photos in its cover.  Some fans refused to believe the photos – […]

No sunshine for more than ten days now: my soul is drowning in gloom and I try my best to bring “my own sunshine” wherever I go.  “Sunshine” for me includes Kianne, my Kindle 4 (her full name is Kianne Somerhalder, btw), who (who?!) is always in my bag wherever I go.  It turns me […]

  While folding freshly laundered clothes, I heard Jessica Soho on GMA NewsTV start her report with “Ikinalulungkot naming ang balitang ito…” (“We are saddened by this news…”).  I held my breath, knowing what was coming. The comedy king of the Philippines is dead, weeks before his 84th  birthday.  We have followed the latest news […]
