Life, Old Age and the Joys of Work in The Intern

Wednesday, September 23, 2015 , 0 Comments

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? That’s probably the most common and the most cliché question heard in most interviews, however, here in The Intern it is placed in a context wrapped in playful humor that gently ushers in thoughts of the harsh realities of life and old age. Last night, at the premiere of the movie, The Intern, I got to see the value of life experiences and how friendship knows no age and how passion and ambition can directly affect lives when it is manifested in such intensity.

Upcoming Film: The Intern

Thursday, September 17, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

Guess what I’m looking forward to watching next week? I’ve been eyeing this film for a while and so far, the trailer had been funny and interesting. I can’t wait to see Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway on the big screen in this uplifting and inspiring film. The film stars De Niro as Ben Whittaker, a 70 year old widow wanting very much to get out retirement.

This morning this post will be a mix of art, blue fire craters and some entertainment news. Let’s start it off with the awesome-looking electric blue molten sulphur flows from the Blue Fire Crater of Indonesia. I’m always awed by the raw beauty of Mother Nature. Take a look.

Carmageddon Over and Over

Friday, September 11, 2015 0 Comments

My daily routine already includes several hours of being stuck in traffic. After enduring this for several years now, I've learned how to adapt and make the most of the hours I spend on the road. This is why I have started to appreciate the joy of listening to audiobooks. Not only do they make the traffic less daunting, I also don't experience road rage as much anymore. However, there are really times when traffic takes a turn from worse, to worst and then to a nightmarish carmageddon.

For those not in the know, here's the definition of carmageddon from the Urban Dictionary.

Bread too Cute to Eat

What do you do when something presented in front of you is too cute to eat? Such is the dilemma when faced with the three-dimensional character breads known as chigiri-pan. They are not only adorable but works of art too. Take a look.

Hello New Work Week

Monday, September 07, 2015 0 Comments

Cheers to a brand new month! Well technically, we're already on the second week but it's never too late to say hello to September. The "ber" months signify the start of the Christmas season in the Philippines and I won't be surprised if I will see holiday decor already being sold in stores. The past three months for me hasn't been really smooth sailing and I was forced to take a long hard look at what's been happening in my life and well, I think I can say now that I'm willing to see the blue skies finally after quite a time. I also haven't written personal posts here and I've noticed the disconnect. Now, I think it's high time to make some changes.

Why do Spies in Movies Always Look Good?

Tuesday, September 01, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

I've been a long time fan of anything involving spies. I've read books, played games and of course, watched dozens of movies. Although they have similar plots, same flaunting of various gadgets and almost always a showcase of really sleek looking cars, there's another constant that make me wonder why the spies themselves always have to be very good looking. Kinda makes you think if when they're applying for the job, one requirement would be - exceptional good looks. Why this short narration? Well, you can't really unsee the two gorgeous men in the recently shown, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
