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!
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.
I don’t really watch stuff like this since I’m not much of a movie person myself but I do like to keep tabs on select actors and actresses and this year we all knew it was Leo’s time to shine. Here are my two huge cents on the this year’s Academy awards.
I’m really happy for Leo bagging his first Oscar ever and his really awesome speech on raising environmental awareness.
Like, how can you not want to plant trees after that speech?
It was drizzling atop the mountain
Where God stood to greet himself.
I was praying for success and happiness,
For patience and strength.
No prayers for you yet you were there.
Drenched, fatigued, and with muddy, muddy shoes. (more…)
I’ve kept this book hidden since May this year, often reading what I initially saw as more “exciting” books in my previous book reviews. While I did have joy in reading those books, I believe I felt as if I betrayed myself by putting this book on hold for such a long time.
This book is simply amazing. I’ve never read anything quite like it. Gaiman states he drew inspiration from The Jungle Book, which is about a child raised by animals. Truth be told, this book does share an awful lot of similarity with its inspiration but it’s nothing short of original and witty when it comes to delivery and concept.
“You’re in love with her, aren’t you?”
“When you were talking to her at the other table, I saw the way you looked, no, stared at her.
You don’t look at me that way and for the longest time I’ve always wondered if there was something missing, something I haven’t done but now I know.
Those eyes…those eyes are really for someone else.” (more…)
