Manic Mondays I LOVE

image

Spent my Monday wisely and started it out crazy 🙂 This is my younger sister and I having fun after drinking our coffee (she even sneaked a few sips on mine! Hmpppp sissy, madaya ka, bhelat).

Then it’s time for another coffee with one of the prettiest girls alive, Kai. From the first time she shouted my name, I knew fun has started.

Greenhills shopping will always be one of the best places to hang out with a shopaholic friend like me. Lol! This photo was taken while we were shoe shopping.

Cherry blossoms are in bloom in Manila! They are soooo cute! (Errr, the fake ones)

After two hours of non stop walking, it’s time to eat out! Super sorry if we almost left without paying. One of the most embarassing moment in our entire laugh but hey, we remembered and walked back inside. Oh bloopers!!! My stomach ached from too much laughing!

Coffee for the third time? Why not? Apparently, Lyza our dear friend who just came back from Singapore saw my IG post and immediately followed! How fun is that? These two girls are the other superwomen that I know. It’s nice to surround yourself with such good strong souls! We talked about life, love, heartaches, guys, shopping and how to get better each day! We wrapped it up by watching ‘Beautiful Creatures’, love the movie and the collection of poetry that Leila owns. ^^

To my sister, Kai and Lyza, thanks for completing my Monday 🙂

Now is good to care

I was just watching Ellie Goulding’s videos on Youtube when I happened to pass by one of her songs entitled “I know you care” which happened to be the OST of this movie, Now is Good.

So, my sister downloaded it for me and true enough… it made me cry. Didn’t know that this was taken from a book. Since I liked the movie so much (I’m a big fan of tear jerker movies) maybe I’ll stop by the bookstore and buy myself one. Just wanted to share my favorite scene 🙂 and quote.

now is good (1) now is good (2) now is good (3) now is good (4)

moments
our life is a series of moments
each one a journey to the end
let them go
let them all go

our life is a series of moments
let them go
moments
all gathering towards this one

Oh Les Miserables Hangover!!!

image

Finally after such a long time of waiting and from the first time I blogged the trailer of Les Miserables, tonight I braved to do one thing I have been wanting to do since the last time I did it. I watched a movie alone for the first time in after oh so many years (clap, clap, clap). My last solo movie encouter was not that good so I better not talk about it.

Like book reviews I am no good for the movies also. So let me just share my thoughts about it. First, kudos to the whole cast of the movie. For me they all fit perfectly for their roles. They deserve all the nominations they got from the Golden Globe Awards and I am sure there will be more this coming Oscars. I guess I don’t need to mention how Hugh, Anne and Amanda never fails to deliver their character well. But my favorite part was of course Samantha Barks version of “on my own”. Very simple yet touching, plus add the rain effect. 🙂

Being the crybaby that I am, I cried at 5 scenes. First was when Jean Valjean got Cosette and he sung “suddenly”. Second at the hospital scene where Fantine died. Third where Eponine died and Marius was singing to him. Fourth when Marius was singing after all his friends died and lastly, when Jean Valjean said goodbye to Cosette and Marius. My tears wont stop as usual so when the movie ended, my head starts to throb again. This time I am not pissed off though I can’t walk straight. I can’t blame myself for crying, haha.

Two quotes that I somehow remember but not sure if it’s right since I can’t write and I am too absorbed in the movie.
If I could close your wounds with words of love – Marius to Eponine
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken. There’s a pain that goes and goes.” – Marius

That would be it. 🙂 Watch the movie and enjoy yourself. For all those musical fanatics, make sure you don’t miss it.
