Getting to Know the Pearls of Palawan

I was fortunate enough to visit Palawan during one of our company outings and I can attest that it is truly beautiful and magical. It is home to rich rainforests, diverse sea life, scenic diving sites and beautiful beaches. It is also just recently that I learned that Palawan plays host to pearl farming, an industry unique to our country. One of the key players in the pearl farming industry is Jewelmer.

Saying Hello to Distraction Free Driving

This morning I was anxiously waiting for my GrabCar driver to pick me up. I was watching the navigation map on the Grab app and I saw that he was just 5 minutes away. 10 minutes has passed and he still hasn't arrived. I kept checking his location and he was still in the same place. I was afraid that the app had frozen on me. Thankfully, he arrived just moments later. He told me just what I had suspected, his phone restarted and he couldn't get the Grab app and Waze back up again. He also told me that he had to resort to asking around for directions to where I was. I remember that was how we were back then, back when Waze wasn't such a big part of our everyday driving lives.

Today is the day of implementation for the Anti-distracted Driving Act which was passed into a law last August 1, 2016. So motorists, beware...resist the urge of touching that phone or else..

That was my initial reaction when I saw this trailer for Wonder Woman. I can’t put into words just how much I’m looking forward to watching this movie. June 1st cannot come soon enough. Gal Gadot truly is becoming one with the iconic role.

Excalibur, King Arthur and Charlie Hunnam

What do we really know about the legend of King Arthur? We all know about him, the Knights of the Round Table and of course, the famous sword Excalibur. Well, let’s also not forget about Merlin. There’s also been so many movie made about him but a few days ago, I may have just seen the best adaptation and a great retelling of the legend as well. I’ve got to be honest that I didn’t expect much, except that the movie definitely had an epic feel to it based on the trailers alone. I wasn’t prepared to be blown away but oh man, Guy Ritchie made something amazing here and it was just incredibly impressive.

Modern Re-telling of King Arthur Coming Up

We’re all familiar with the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table right? In this new version of the tale, King Arthur is given a modern and grittier edge through the spectacular direction of Guy Ritchie and the led by Charlie Hunnam in the titular role. Instead of being a royal, King Arthur is a common ruffian who runs a gang in the alleys of Londonium and will soon be made aware of the destiny that lies before him.

Summer Thunderstorms, the CA and the Proper Decorum

Just as we’ve been complaining that the summer heat is becoming intolerable especially during the hours of 2 to 3 in the afternoon, here come the summer thunderstorms, as is the signature of the month of May. These sudden strong rainshowers in the late afternoon and evening are especially not beneficial to those susceptible to allergies like me but well, what can we do right?

The Dark Tower Movie Posters

I used to have a Stephen King phase back in high school and you bet I’ve read, The Dark Tower. This is why I’m excited to finally be able to watch its movie adaptation on the big screen. To top it off, it will be starred by two of the most talented actors in Hollywood, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. As a treat before the launch of the movie’s official trailer, Columbia Pictures has released the first set of individual posters featuring the movie’s protagonists.
