The Dressmaker Movie Review

Saturday, October 31, 2015 , 0 Comments

We all heard just how formative our childhood years can be in shaping who we are as adults. As much as we try to deny its importance, it’s amazing just how accurate the studies can be. Maybe, it’s Rosalie Ham had in mind while she was writing her novel of the same title. If you had a bad childhood, what would make you want to face it again? I couldn’t help but think of this question as the opening scenes of the movie, The Dressmaker came onto the big screen.

Kate Winslet’s Revenge Through Fashion in The Dressmaker

Sunday, October 25, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

Can you really get revenge from the people who did you wrong through fashion? This was what Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) had in mind when she returned to the sleepy town of Dungatar after conquering the world of couture in Milan and Paris. Set in 1951, Tilly’s other agenda is to take care of her eccentric and ailing mother Molly, (Judy Davis).

Fifth and Final Scream for the Paranormal Activity Movies

Monday, October 19, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

Eight years ago, when I first saw the original Paranormal Activity film, it blew my mind and I couldn’t sleep without the light off for a week. Yes, I was that scared. In my opinion, they should have stopped there. However, we all know how much profit could be gained from these kinds of horror films so there had been sequel after sequel of the franchise. I personally found the fourth one too weird and freaky. Cults and such? *shudder*

Little Lazies’ Monsters

Monday, October 19, 2015 , , 0 Comments

Since starting calligraphy, I’ve started looking into related fields in the art of doodling. It had always been a frustration of mine, being able to just doodle freely and create these wonderful quirky scenes starting only with a blank piece of paper. I’ve attended a character workshop before and it was so much fun. I’ve always wanted to create critters of my own. So, I’ve always been drawn to cute monsters and characters either in 2d or 3d form. When I saw these monsters from the Etsy shop called Little Lazies, I simply couldn’t resist.

Bradley Cooper in Burnt

Saturday, October 17, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

Ever since he came out on the big screen, there had been nothing but good movies to and fro under Bradley Cooper’s belt. We’ve seen him in action films and rom com’s that has him winning every woman’s heart. Here in his latest film, Burnt, he plays a chef, a role that is very close to his heart. In the movie he plays the role of Chef Adam Jones, a very talented chef who has earned fame and respect in the culinary world with two Michelin stars under his belt. However, he also has bad habits to match.

Have a Discovery APEC Holiday

Saturday, October 17, 2015 0 Comments

There are so many things that I’m excited for next month, first and foremost...it’s my birthday month. However, I’m looking at it at a personal level, for the rest of the Filipinos though, November means the long APEC weekend that is set for Nov 16 to 22nd. Oh yes, it’s an incredibly long weekend for us. APEC you say? Here’s a little something about the APEC holiday. APEC stands for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and it’s a forum for Pacific Rim members that promotes free trade throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Trying out Earth Kitchen at BGC

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 0 Comments

Everytime I pass through White Plains, Katipunan, I’ve always noticed a restaurant that’s always been packed especially during meal times. That was the first time that I learned of the Earth Kitchen. So it was a thrill to finally be able to try out their dishes at their recently opened branch at the Bonifacio High Street in BGC (Bonifacio Global City).

Why Drinking Lemon Water is Good for You

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 0 Comments

I've never been a fan of drinking just a plain glass of water. I find it well, too boring for my taste. This is why I always find it hard to drink the recommended amount of glasses in an entire day. Thankfully, I can easily spice it up with slices of lemon or cucumber. Everyday, my morning routine involves me drinking a cup of coffee. It is my energizer for the day. However, studies have shown that it may be more beneficial to drink warm water with a slice of lemon instead. Here's why:

I was watching Insurgent the other night and I can't help but notice for the nth time that Kate Winslet is a natural beauty. I couldn't help but see how perfect she looked in 1950's fashion for the upcoming film, The Dressmaker.

Get Peanutized

Tuesday, October 06, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

One of the most distinct and identifiable comic characters are the Peanuts Gang created by Charles Schulz. In anticipation of the upcoming animation, The Peanuts Movie, you can now get “peanutized” by visiting The Peanuts Movie Character Creator Fun Site. I’ve already seen this on my FB feed a few days ago but I only got to try it myself yesterday. It’s pretty fun and easy.

Final Trailer for Spectre Revealed

Monday, October 05, 2015 , , , 0 Comments

I firmly believe that any film with Christoph Waltz playing as the movie’s main villain will be extremely entertaining to watch. He plays such a complex and interesting persona when he sides with the bad guys. In Spectre, also the last film where Daniel Craig will be reprising his role as James Bond, Christoph Waltz will face-off with Craig as mind-boggling connections are revealed in the movie’s plot between the two.
