A tag from Paolo of blacklinemedia.

1. One movie that made you laugh.
Believe it or not, it’s Sukob! While other people in the cinema were shouting/scared, my friend and I were laughing all throughout the movie because of one of the character’s really bad acting! (Kahit sa TV commercials nga, dir in maayos umarte, hay nuku!) πŸ˜€

2. One movie that made you cry.
La Vita Γ¨ Bella (Life is Beautiful). This film gives you all the funny and cheerful stuff first, but towards the end it will trigger your emotion. Just thinking of the sacrifices a father has to do to make a normal life for his child during WWII and in a prison camp…

3. One movie you loved when you were a child.
Ay, mga movies ni Matet at saka ni Aiza kung minsan. πŸ˜€

4. One movie you’ve seen more than once.
Inuulit-ulit ko lahat ng movies na meron ako. πŸ˜€

5. One movie you loved, but were embarrassed to admit it.
I’m not embarrassed to admit any movie I’ve seen. Lahat kinukwento ko. πŸ˜‰

6. One movie you hated.
Bruce Almighty. I don’t like the profanity in this film. Feeling ko nga blasphemous din sya.

7. One movie that scared you.
The Ring series – the original versions. Do I need to explain why? πŸ˜€

8. One movie that bored you.
Dalawa na sila ngayon, actually. Dati yung Dr. Zhivago lang! Sobrang haba ng movie na `to. Over sa dialogue. When I was watching this film on DVD, I fell asleep twice. Pag nagigising ako, di pa rin sya tapos! At usap pa rin ng usap yung mga characters. Across the Universe. The songs were great but, there’s something in the course of events that’s just not right. I fell asleep while watching it.

9. One movie that made you happy.
Europa Europa. Felt good watching this movie, lalo na pagdating sa ending. Parang nag-adventure sa buong Europa ang central character, kahit pa giyera.

10. One movie that made you miserable.
JΓΊ DΓ²u. Don’t get me wrong, because Zhang Yimou is one of my favorite filmmakers. Maybe the plot of this film was too much for me when I first saw it. Maganda sya, pero nakakalungkot na medyo nakakainis din.

11. One movie you weren’t brave enough to see.
None so far. Yabang ko, no? πŸ˜€ Basta, kahit mag-isa talaga, nanonood ako ng horror films sa bahay. Ang lapit ko pa nyan sa TV o kaya sa monitor ng computer kasi ayoko magsalamin. hehehe

12. One movie character you’ve fallen in love with.
Ngayon, si Amy Adams. Aliw na aliw ako sa kanya sa Enchanted saka sa Junebug.

13. The last movie you saw.
Outsourced. Dapat panoorin `to ng mga companies na mahilig mag-outsource sa kung saan-saang panig ng mundo.

14. The next movie you hope to see.
Urduja. Been waiting for it for months. πŸ™‚

I’m passing this meme to: sonnet’s, hitokirihoshi, kengkay, rhapsody, misyel, witchy, and raft3r.

Did I, Really?

Sunday… wow!

I couldn’t believe the surprising e-mail I received when I opened my inbox last night. It was a really nice surprise, but it also made me speechless for nearly a minute. I was in awe! πŸ˜€

Here’s the e-mail (I just have to share it to you, people!).

It’s been two month since I joined a contest for WPP members. I wanted to participate because I want to becme an active WPP member, since the main objective of the contest is to have meaningful threads/topics/posts from the participants. But with the demands from my job last month and some personal obligations, I was only able to make 19 posts. And I couldn’t update my blog as well. Haay…

So I didn’t expect I’d even get the runner-up price. But… surprise, surprise! I WON!

What happened was, at the last minute, the organizers of the contest had to change the criteria because [it seems] the main goal was overlooked. Honestly speaking, I’m still in the state of disbelief until now; still trying to absorb what it means.

Salamat talaga sa WPP at sa mga nag-sponsor ng contest:
