Signs that it’s time to quit your job
About the same time last year, my life was going through some very drastic changes. One of the reasons was that I had quit my job of more than 2 years and was preparing for a new one. Quitting your job involves much thought and one that shouldn’t be acted on impulsively (unless you deem it necessary). If you’ve done so, then it’s time to put in a course of action. However if you’re undecided, I’ve compiled some reasons here that might make you see things clearly.
Movie Review: The Hunger Gameshow excited I was to see it and I've marked my calendar for the day of its showing. I ignored the bad reviews I've seen throughout the net and on social media sites where friends have posted what their reactions were. I told myself that I want to reserve my judgment until after I've personally seen it myself. I also kept thinking that it couldn't be THAT bad. Last night I finally got to watch it and I can tell you upfront now, this fan is extremely disappointed. Here goes another hyped up movie that couldn't live up to the hype and another movie adaptation that has gone wrong. Read on to find out the reasons why I feel cheated on what could have been one of the best movies for the year.
Thoughts on the Pretty Little Liars Season 2 Ender
Hats off to the writers for the last episode of Pretty Little Liars entitled Unmasked. It stood for two things - the masquerade ball that our girls were attending and the identity of "A" finally being revealed. On the whole, the show (and the books) has a very complex plot and I know we're nowhere near over, that's why I'm really looking forward to season 3. For those of you who's just started to get hooked on the show and hasn't seen this last episode yet, better skip this post entirely and browse several other interesting posts that I wrote using the links from Linkwithin or my blog's sidebar. Otherwise, let me share my thoughts and theories about what's coming next for Pretty Little Liars.

The Books from my Childhood

The Nancy Drew Series
I used to check out these books from the library and I would be exited to come home and read them after doing my homework. The Nancy Drew books that I borrowed from the library weren’t exactly new. They were hardbound but the pages were already a bit yellow and some of the book spines were frayed. Nevertheless, I loved reading them.
Movie Preview: Dark Shadows Movie PostersTim Burton and Johnny Depp since their Edward Scissorhands days. Years after, they’ve teamed up for yet another movie, this time a gothic comedy entitled Dark Shadows. In a nutshell, the movie is about how Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) was turned into a vampire by a witch named Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), whose heart he broke as he was a playboy. Buried alive, Barnabas emerges from his tomb to find his once glorious mansion in ruins and remnants of his family in considerable stages of family troubles.

Quick Food Post: Max’s Cauliflower Puffs
Thursday, March 22, 2012 Food Reviews 0 Comments
This is how it looked like. The serving size was pretty okay. The cauliflower stalks appeared to have been dipped in batter, fried then slathered with a kind of garlic sauce. The verdict? 3 out of 10. It wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. I couldn’t taste the cauliflower anymore because of the batter. The batter tasted like it was cooked in the same oil that was used to cook Max’s chicken. I barely noticed the sauce taste too. Quite disappointing.

YA books turned into movies to watch out for
Here are some book adaptations that are soon to be coming our way, I've read some of them while some are still in my "to-read" category in GoodReads. Here's to hoping they will be good.
Movie Preview: Zac Efron in The Lucky One
In this movie, U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

Book Review: Shatter Me
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.

Judge, Jury and Executioner
There's only 2 episodes left in the series and this one I feel was absolutely unnecessary. What annoyed the heck out of me was all the talk! The dialogues were long, repetitive and while I understand that the writers meant to send the message across that our group is in a desperate situation, a good chunk of the allotted time could have been dedicated to something else. There was little zombie action here and at the risk of mentioning a spoiler in this post, it's not really something to get excited about.
Movie Review: John Carter
In a nutshell, here’s what the movie was about. Captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) was a war veteran who found himself on Mars while on the search for a cave of gold. Here he got captured by Tars Tarkas’ (Willem DaFoe) clan. While in captivity, he saved the life of Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) who was running away from an arranged marriage. She was being forced to marry Sab Than (Dominic West). Princess Dejah asks Carter for help to save her city and ultimately Barsoom from the clutches of Sab Than.

Temple Run comes to Android
Looks like that day has come folks. They've finally announced that Temple Run will finally be released for Android phones on March 27. This could be because of the so many fake apps popping in the market. Woot! I'm marking my calendar for that one. I can't wait to review it.

Music: Florence and the Machine
Tuesday, March 06, 2012 music and lifestyle 0 Comments
I first heard this song on Glee and while they did the more pop version of this song, I like the original best.
I’ve been hearing this song because it’s been getting a lot of airplay in the local radio stations, I didn’t know that it was sung by Florence and The Machine and just recently, it was also featured in one of the episodes of the latest season of How I met your mother.
Here’s another song I recognized from the album. This was one of the songs that I immediately liked in the soundtrack compilation for Jennifer’s Body.
Another haunting song. Her voice is so ethereal and I love it!

Game of Thrones Season 2 New Posters and Trailer
Tuesday, March 06, 2012 Entertainment 0 Comments
Which house are you betting on for the Iron Throne? It's all about war on the next season of Game of Thrones which will start airing on April 1. Everyone's excited! Promotions are well underway too. Here are two new posters to view for the series.
I can't wait to see Arya as she sets off to find her way back to her mother and siblings. There's also the war games between Cerce and Tyrion to look forward to. I'm not eager however to see Geoffrey's face again. There's something about him that just annoys me to the very core. So as one of the hated characters in the story, he's doing a very terrific job. Anyway, I can't wait for April. For the meantime, let's all just feast our eyes on this released second trailer for the series.
Movie Preview: Disney Pixar’s Brave
The movie is set in Scotland and is about Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), the daughter of King Fergus(voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). She lived at a time when women were still considered inferior and had no voice and choices of their own. Determined to set her own path, Merida defied a sacred tradition in their land and unknowingly unleashed a curse on her father’s kingdom. Seeking the help of a Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters), she must discover the true meaning of bravery in order to undo the curse before it’s too late.

The New Official Trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers
Friday, March 02, 2012 Movies 0 Comments
Think highly anticipated, lofty expectations and THE blockbuster movie for this year. The Avengers movie brings a slew of big Hollywood stars in one epic action film that brings goosebumps to all fanboys out there. As for me, I’m looking forward to see Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor again. I’m also intrigued how Jeremy Renner will be as Hawkeye.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the beginning of The Avengers as an assembly of heroes tasked by S.H.I.E.L.D to protect the Earth. They’re directed by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). As a team, we see that in the beginning they squabble amongst themselves but hopefully will pull together in the end. Loki clearly is the mastermind behind the plot to destroy earth but I’m curious about the dragon alien appearing at the end of the trailer. It looks to be an exciting movie filled with so much action and spectacular effects. Mark it on your calendars, April 25, 2012 for Marvel’s The Avengers.

Movie Review: My Week with Marilyn (Get a chance to win a Boracay Trip)Eddie Redmayne), an ambitious and hard-working man who desperately wanted to get in the film-making business. He got his chance working as the third assistant director of Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) for the movie The Prince and the Showgirl. While her husband was away, Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) spent a week off from filming with Colin and with this he shares an insight of who and how Marilyn was behind the camera.
To be honest, when I watched the movie at a special press screening, I didn’t have any inclination of how Marilyn acted, how her voice sounded like or even the way she carries herself. Yes I’ve seen her pictures but that’s just about how much I knew. I knew also that she was this big star, so big in fact that she became an icon.
