MOVIE REVIEW | After Earth

There was a month when this movie was showing thrice a day in HBO but I never found time to watch it in whole.

"Why are you looking at me so weird?"

Finally, another Will and Jaden Smith movie since "Pursuit of Happyness"...



When people play god, there's a bunch of things that can go terribly wrong.

This is the classic case of science fiction: when a person or a group of people aim for the ultimate scientific goal of creating life. Examples of shows and literature with this theme are Frankenstein, Splice, AI, Fullmetal Alchemist, and one I most recently watched, Ex Machina.


Life on Earth Log 001

I know I should be working right now. I should be producing a hundred lines per minute by now. I should be able finish at least a page of line drawings right now; but here I am, writing about what I should be doing.

When you run a vehicle until it consumes every ounce of fuel, it will stop. When you use something too much, you stretch it to its breaking point. Our bodies are like that. 

I don't understand. I was fine last week.


Why can't I have books.

Why blend in when you can be unique?

"Matilda" celebrates the life of a unique but misunderstood child. Born to an undeserving family, Matilda struggled to find her significance in a world with crooked values.


Enough of Pretentiousness

I am tired of all the pretentiousness I see in facebook.

What makes a post inspiring, or at least interesting? To me, if it is true to the person who posted and speaks to the soul, it's worth my "like." Also, if it's a video of a baby, or dogs (especially chihuahuas), it deserves a like as well. 

Social media has opened the dimensions to freedom of personal expression, still a lot of us choose to put up a front. Why can't we just be true to ourselves? What's hindering us?

I noticed a lot of people posting and re-posting quotes that do not necessarily reflect who they are. Some are overly positive to the point of pretentiousness. I am most allergic to people who had to quote Bible verses that are not necessarily reflected in their lives. Some would even use the name of God in vain through these posts. Ang masakit, madaming naniniwala. {I'm afraid many believe them.}

MOVIE REVIEW | Womb (Clone)

Where do I start reviewing this film?

First, Eva Green is stunning, as always; and in this movie, ageless?!?!?!?

She's about twenty in this scene. Looks pretty much the same until the end of the movie.

As romantic as the first few scenes are, this is not your typical love story.



I woke up to "Jingle Bells" this morning. It's only September 12 and hearing these commercial seasonal songs meant for December is just annoying. I bet they (the Philippine media) already started the countdown to December 25. Yay! *sarcasm*

On the other hand, we sing Christmas songs in church but I feel differently about that.

Usually, September is a busy month for us. For so many years until her 30th, our church has been celebrating her anniversary month. Now that she has been reorganized, the schedule is less hectic for many of our members. Instead we are celebrating a series of activities focused on FAITH.

But I am still busy. With work. With the wedding. And taking the melody of "Jingle Bells" out of my head.

There's a lot of hype about December. Two of my projects need to be finished before the Christmas season. It stresses me out that both of them are still in conceptualization stage. I don't want to be late for my deadline.

Too bad humans can't hibernate. 

MOVIE REVIEW | Dennis the Menace

"Mr. Wilson!!!"

"Dennis the Menace" is one of those movies my brothers and I like watching over and over again. It's a comedy about an overly active mischevious young boy and a grumpy and impatient old man in his senior age. The comedy is mainly based on how Dennis inflicts pain to older people - literal pain.


Finding the Perfect Home at Property 24

I have three basic needs: Food, shelter and... Wifi!

Not kidding about the wifi... but let's talk about shelter.

I lived in Pasay City within Metro Manila my whole life. I have seen some places within Luzon island but only stayed for only a week or less. I would love to explore the Philippines; all 7,107 islands of it, if God will allow.

The perfect shelter, for me, has to be a place where I can totally be myself. It must embody both comfort and adventure, and a little bit of whimsy. I want my ideal home (homes) to be my piece of paradise on Earth.

In finding the best properties, here are my major considerations:

  1. LOCATION. If possible, the property must be near the airport, or seaport or ferry station for greater accessibility and convenient travel. 
  2. PRIVACY. I prefer properties that are not too close to the hustle and bustle of the city. If the property is outside Metro Manila, it must have a sense of seclusion from the outside world.
  3. OPPORTUNITY FOR BUSINESS. I give plus points to properties that pay their own bills. By this I mean: farms that can grow fruit, properties that can be rented out, and the like.

Here are the top 5 properties I spotted in Property24!
