The rule: Name 11 people you can think of right off the top of your head. Don’t read the questions underneath until you write the names of all the 11 people. This is a lot funnier if you actually randomly list the names first. No cheating.

  1. Sarah
  2. Lukaret
  3. Yuri
  4. Sherma
  5. Tayns
  6. MJ
  7. Rey
  8. Leng-leng
  9. Jomar
  10. Faye
  11. Obet

1. How did you meet # 4? I met Sherma in college, na napagkamalan ko pang upperclassman kasi hindi kasama sa block naming nung first year. She’s one of my very best friend.

2. What would you do without #5? I’d be very sad. Tayns is like a sister. We have so many things in common. She’s also a college buddy that became a best friend.

3. What would you do if #2 and # 6 were going out? Ngek! It will never happen! They’re both girls! Really bad scene. HAHAHAHA! πŸ˜€

4. Who’s #10’s best friend? Her books! She spends her entire time reading.

5. Have you ever eaten around #1? As in eat together? Oo naman! We’ve shared meals since we were in nappies. Sarah and I grew up together. Known her since birth. Kakampi sa mga kalokohan at pakikipag-away sa mga kalaro! πŸ˜€

6. Do you miss #2? Oh, yeah. Nakaka-miss ang mga chika nito at ang magdamagang chikahan! Ma-adventure ang buhay nito, pati na ng buong barangay nila. Oi, Lukaret, when are we gonna get together at nang makapanlait uli tayo ng kung sinu-sino?! πŸ˜€

7. Who is #11 dating? He’s not dating anyone. Loyal husband and dad ito sa kanyang wife and daughter. If ever he’s dating anyone, isusumbong ko sya.

8. What do you think of #3? Yuri is an unusual kid. He prefers musicals over cartoons. Favorite movies niya, Spider-man (but he’s afraid of spiders!), High School Musical, Cats, The Sound of Music. His favorite song at the moment is Seasons of Love (from Rent—he’s not old enough to watch this film). He also loves listening to The Wedding March— something I really can’t understand why. He’s amazed that Maria (Julie Andrews) still appears in films until now.:D And he’s six years old.

9. What do you think of #9? He’s a little introvert. Do not be afraid, Noy. No one will harm you.

10. Who does #2 like? Ngayon? Si Umberto yata, kahit makulit. πŸ˜€

11. Would you marry #8? NO! Baby sister ko `yan sa office si Leng-leng.

I’m passing this meme to Sonnet, Hitokirihoshi, Raft3r and Witchy.

One Year

Abril 17, 2008

I have one good reason to celebrate.

Because the month of April marks crumbs‘ one year.

That made me smile — a big one plastered on my face right now. πŸ˜€ I still can’t believe that I’ve been blogging (seriously) for a year. A couple of years ago, I used to maintain a (very inactive) blog somewhere else (in a social networking site πŸ˜€ ). I wasn’t even aware of the existence of WordPress then! Thanks to Tim, who encouraged me to attend the i-blog summit in UP last year. I’d say it was “enlightening.” If I hadn’t joined, I wouldn’t have discovered the fun of sharing my thoughts to the rest of the world and getting a response from whoever reads whatever I have written. The biggest reward of blogging, for me, is gaining friends that ordinarily I wouldn’t have met if I wasn’t here. You, people in my blogroll, I thank you—for sharing bits and pieces of your life and letting me share mine. πŸ™‚

Cheers to us!
P.S – I have also started a photo blog here. You might want to take a look. I’d appreciate it very much. πŸ™‚


Weekend Film Picks

Abril 15, 2008

I didn’t realize how weird the last weekend was until I thought of the films I preferred watching from Friday to Sunday. I really don’t know what I was thinking, but these are the movies that occupied my weekend, watched in THAT order.

1. Nim’s Island

Despite several curious situations in this film, I still liked it!

It’s about an 11-year-old girl named Nim (Abegail Breslin) who lives in an isolated island with her microbiologist dad Jack (Gerard Butler). As far as she could remember, after her mother died, the island has been her home. Everyday is an adventure for Nim. For friends, she has a sea lion named Selkie, an iguana named Fred and a pelican called Galileo. She has a very healthy imagination and her favorite books are those adventure stories written by her favorite author, Alex Rover (who is Alexandra Rover in real life—played by Jodie Foster). When her father goes missing from one of his research, Nim is left all alone in their island. For some twist of fate, she is able to exchange e-mails with her favorite author. Alexandra, on the other hand, realizing that Nim is just a little girl who needs her help. Alexandra, came to the rescue, yes, but with much effort and misadventures.

Note: One has to watch Nim’s Island with a child’s eyes.
