Hello everyone! As you may have noticed, I’ve not been as active in this blog as before and for good reason. As mentioned in the title, I’ve been busy with a website and it will focus on health, fitness, and maybe a bit of financial blogging here and there.
Also, a little update: I’m no longer affiliated with Jollibee Foods Corporation. The company and I had a few things we didn’t agree on so I decided to move away and focus on being a freelancer (which earns me a lot more money) and a chance to build on my website.
I’ll be stealing a few blogs from this place for content’s sake. The purpose of that website is to earn me some passive income. I’m thankful I’m the author so I don’t need to ask for anyone’s permission😀
So yeah, here’s the website in case you want to visit!
The thing I like about Ransom Riggs’ Peculiar series is how he manages to introduce a familiar story without making the reader liken it too much to something else. While his series received multiple praises and even got commended for being “the next Harry Potter”, you can’t help but be thankful for the author’s original take on what a peculiar gang of kids would do if they had weird powers.
I liked books 1 and 2 so it went without saying my expectations from the last of the trilogy would be pretty high. I now realize I expected a little too much.
Batman v Superman started the franchise this year and it got pretty mixed reviews. Critics didn’t like it but fans say critics were too harsh. I reviewed it and personally, I liked it. Now comes Suicide Squad, the franchise’s first villains-turned-hero film ala Deadpool (well, technically Deadpool’s an antihero).
Like a curse, Suicide Squad met its own BvS critics. Fans reacted and even went on as to petition the shutting down of a popular film-review website. Fans like me weren’t deterred so I went ahead and formed my own opinion about the film and here is my review.
It happened two weeks ago.
Helena my, for lack of a better word, “girlfriend” asked if we could meet today at lunch time in her favorite cafe in the metro. This was weird. Really weird. She often made me decide where to go, where to eat, and where we could sleep. Her suggesting a place meant something was up. Still, she was so carefree it annoyed me.
Helena was of Russian-Japanese descent, green, almond shaped eyes, thick brown eyebrows, luscious lips, ash blonde hair, around 5’9″ tall, and won the genetic lottery when it came to her hourglass figure and size-D breasts. It wasn’t just her beauty that made me garner an interest, though. She happens to be an MIT graduate who took up a degree with focus on Brain and Cognitive Science. So no, she’s not exactly a dumb blonde.
I met her last June 2015 in Coron, Palawan. She was there with her team of models and crew for a beach photoshoot and a local form of luau. I went there, by myself, because none of my friends took me seriously when I told them I’ll be booking flights to Palawan six months back.
To keep it short, she knocked violently on my room at 3:00 AM thinking it was her and her room mates’. She was obviously drunk with her face all red like a tomato’s and her body looking like it got a serious case of the rashes (she was in a red two-piece swimsuit) and screamed at my face, telling me this was her room and if I didn’t let her in she’d sue me for millions.
“Millions! I tell you! MILLIONS!” were her exact words. She had that Russian-English dialect going on with her. A bit thick and deep but clear. She pronounced them loud enough for you to hear them echo across the long expanse of the hotel’s corridors.
I didn’t want to make a scene so I just grabbed her. I checked if anyone saw us and when the coast was clear, I shut the door, locked it, and confronted the beautiful lady who just screamed at me. (more…)
I reviewed Batman v Superman last time and I got two scores for the normal fan and the comic book fan.
Anyway, I’m into the whole Avengers bandwagon thing now since I’m one of those normal fans who are looking forward to how it all ends. I already watched the Iron Man movies, the Cap A movies, and of course, the two Avengers films. I also watched Guardians of the Galaxy but I skipped Thor, Ant Man (heard it was cool/a B+ movie), and will be skipping Dr. Strange despite him possibly having another infinity stone.
Again, I’m not a total fan of Marvel or any of its franchise. I’m not even really into DC myself save for Batman. So this review is just what a casual MCU fan thinks of the movie.
I picked this book up because I saw the multiple awards it garnered on the cover. I had absolutely no idea whether this book had good reviews on websites like GoodReads. I also didn’t know what the story was about save for the synopsis. Lastly, I’m not a fan of gay literature or “coming out of the closet” type of books. I don’t hate it, just not fond of reading them.
This is a really late post as I watched the film last March 26. Reason for the late post is due to a really hectic schedule concerning my work as a freelance writer. I’m sure everyone knows what critics and fans think of the film.
On one side are people who thought the movie was too dark, gritty, serious, lacked storytelling structure, and “not like Marvel.” On the other side are people who are more than pleased with Snyder’s Justice League prequel and are ready to duke it out with naysayers anytime of day.
I’m not a fan of the comic book series, I’m not a fan of the Justice League series. What I am is a fan of Batman and this is what a typical Batman fan has to say about Batman v Superman. (more…)
Les Miserables Manila is definitely worth the price and traffic. The effects and props are what you would expect from an international performance group. I love this novel and I would definitely watch it again and again and again. I’ve been wanting to watch it since I read the unabridged book some 10 or so years ago as well as watch the film four years back. The story still drives me to a sort of lonely guilt that I just love feeling.
I purchased the tickets without knowing who the heck played who because this was the first time Les Mis would be in the Philippines. I booked VIP on opening day and chose the best seat in the house which was right in the center without being too close or too far; just right to see, hear, and even feel everything.
