Christian Bale in 'THE FIGHTER'

I'm now a fan of Christian Bale!



Pls watch the film and tell me how right I am that HE IS SO F&^%$#@ GOOD..Such a powerful and raw acting!

Hope he wins an academy award.

Food Trippin at Wai Ying

After a long and tiring day at the hospital, my friends and I decided to eat out (as in pig-out talaga :)) ), bond and discuss the latest chika..

"So, where do you want to eat ba?" I asked them. And they said in unison, "Chinese!" 

So off we went to Ongpin. Food trippin at the land of Chinoys, hopia and tikoy! Yey!!!

As recommended by a friend, we found ourselves at WAI YING located at Benavidez St.

Bonding with Fritzie over Jamaican Patties and coffee

She never runs out of stories to tell and she always laughs infectiously and heartily (probably with a decibel of 20?)..Well, that's my friend Grace Fritzie..



We bonded this afternoon over brewed coffee at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (Power Plant). We also ate jamaican patties (I forgot to take pics), spicy tuna pasta and cakes from Becky's. Spell PIG-OUT.. :))




Whew! We both have such hearty appetites, i tell yah. We also love to try new restos; yes folks, foodies at large! If there's a new restaurant within our sensitive radars, we'll surely try it. But we don't gravitate towards the high-end restos yet because we're still saving for them haha.. But I've already told her about the ones I want to try in the near future--Bistecca, Spiral, Sugi and Inagiku.



cravings satisfied.. :)

CONVICTION-An Inspirational Movie

I admit I cry a lot whenever I watch inspirational-touching-feel-good-true story movies. I remember I cried buckets of tears after I watched 'Awakenings', 'Pursuit of Happyness', 'Billy', 'Castaway', and a lot more actually.

And I cried many times while watching this inspirational, true-story film CONVICTION.



This is the true-story of Betty Ann Waters, a single mother who clawed her way to get a law degree just so she could help and defend her brother Kenny Waters who was wrongly convicted of murder.

The film spans 30 years, strewn with flashbacks of Betty and Kenny's childhood depicting their closeness as brother and sister. After Kenny's conviction, she loses herself to her one goal of exonerating her brother, sacrificing her family life and never once gave up on his case. Until the discovery of DNA testing at crime scenes which was what really saved the case and the unbelievable determination of Betty Ann, Kenny was finally released from prison after 18 years.

The amazing Hillary Swank portrays Betty Waters and as usual delivers a moving and enthralling performance. Sam Rockwell also delivered a riveting
and intense acting as Kenny Waters. Too bad the Oscars snubbed this movie..

Tony Goldwyn as director was able to make this film really captivating to the audience.

A must-see!

Lady Antebellum



Am I really going COUNTRY now?! Oh no, just this song folks. :))

I love the voice of Hillary Scott and this song 'NEED YOU NOW' by Lady Antebellum( country music group from Tennessee), which won Song Of the Year and Record of the Year at the recent 53rd Grammy Awards.

TRUE GRIT

How do you explain the genius, brilliant and phenomenal Coen Brothers? I so like their films very much! No Country For Old Men, FARGO and now this!



Matt Damon plays a Texas Ranger and Jeff Bridges (another fave of mine), plays Cogburn. The latter was especially outstanding in this film.

Another Oscar contender, no doubt!

IKAW NA! LADY GAGA!!!



Only Lady Gaga can conceptualize such an entrance at the Grammy's...

Just imagine a dramatic and intriguing entrance inside an egg, propped up above wooden stilts and being moved by 4 shirtless muscled men.

What an eggtrance!

And here's her new single "BORN THIS WAY" which they say is very much like MADONNA's "EXPRESS YOURSELF"

Sung live at the 2011 Grammy's

Heart

Yesterday was spent at Trinoma and SM North with friend REAgirl (college-friend). A pre-valentine celebration of 2 single ladies! We didn't see each other for almost 6 months; so you could just imagine the 'kwentuhans' that happened.

I wore what I call my heart blouse.
 smile naman jan (sungit ba?)

Life As We Know It

Just finished watching the movie "Life As We Know It", which stars Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. It's about two single people suddenly thrust into parenting Sophie (their goddaughter) due to the sudden death of their bestfriends (the parents of Sophie).



It's a feel-good romantic comedy and I really liked it so much. The baby playing Sophie is so cute and she can act! :)) So adorable and huggable..

But the one I want to hug is none other than Josh Duhamel!!! SO HOT!



Fergie is so damn lucky!!!

Rooster!

My friends and I went to Robinson's Malate last Feb. 3 to eat out and bond and we came across Chinese Signs Booth..




I'm a rooster and september-born which they say makes me a perfectionist.. And I must say it's partly---TRUE! :))

But this year, as what the feng shui experts have told and written, the roosters will be unlucky.. Oh no!!!

No way Jose. So what to do now?

I'll say, PRAY!!!

Prayers are powerful, people!





I pray we all get LUCKY this year!

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI!

I've always been a believer of feng shui. I like the books of Lilian Too and Maritess Allen. And recently, Feb. 1 to be exact, I found myself wandering in the streets of  Binondo and Ongpin, to find some lucky charms..

What I really, really want though are some LOVE charms. :))

I found lots of tikoy and round fruits. Plus these>>

Sherpa's Nirvana- Romance Enhancer




 Lucky Coins

After buying these charms and as guided by the owner, I lighted three incenses and prayed to the mini altar at the shop.

I'm a little bit scared really because they say that roosters are unlucky this year. I hope they are wrong..

I really hope to get lucky this year!!!
