Answer in Four

Agosto 12, 2008

I’m still pissed off with some smelly expat at work. He’s caused too much trouble that our working environment’s not too conducive to even invite a slight streak of creativity from anyone. Good thing, I thought of hopping to Rhapsody’s and saw this tag. Might as well do it; it’d at least keep my mind away (even for a while) from the cause of my stress these days!

Here’s the rule…

Click copy/paste, type in your answers and tag four people in your list! Don’t forget to change my answers to the questions with that of yours.

1. Four places I go over and over





2. Four people who e-mails me regularly

Serious e-mails or forwarded ones?

An uncle in Australia

A friend in Dubai

My sister

Another friend who’s also a former colleague

3. Four of my favorite places to eat?

Adarna Food & Culture (good food, lovely ambialce)

Pan de Amerikana, Marikina (very affordable food, really nice ambiance)

Beach House in UP (I miss the barbecue!)

Pancake House (for the pancakes and waffles, ofcourse!)

4. Four places you’d rather be?





5. Four TV shows I could watch over and over.

Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style (naaaliw ako dito talaga)

The rest would be shows from GMA (needed in my work; have to be updated with the programs)

6. Four people I think (and hope) will respond.





Do this meme guys, okay!

Adik sa Pelikula

Hunyo 2, 2008

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™‚

Fun Tag

Abril 29, 2008

Been tagged by MisyeL & Rhapsody.

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.

  17. What song do you want to be played at your wedding? I really love Charlotte Church’s “From My First Moment.” But it’s more of a song for parents or a mentor. Oh, well. Maybe it would do. Some violin music is fine also. I love the sound of the violin.
  18. Do you like anyone right now? Susme! Oo syempre!

Something Old, Something New

Pebrero 18, 2008

This a long overdue tag. I was supposed to post it a long time ago. This tag’s from Rhapsody. She wants me to go over my archives and pick a few posts about:

  • Family: Definitely, it’s “Laugh at Your Heart’s Content.” The post is composed of photos mainly but I think they say a lot about how we are in the family (meaning, the whole clan). Besides, those photos are among my most treasured — happy and carefree.
  • Friends: From my Old Neighborhood. I grew up in the barrio, so the neighborhood is pretty tight. The other kids there became my first buddies before I made friends in school.
  • Myself: Me, a Love Charm?! I still think I am. πŸ˜€ Read the post and tell me if my theory is correct. πŸ˜‰
  • Choice: It’s about an old hobby, a Forgotten Passion. I’m trying to find time to do it. I will. Someday. Tell me if I should. πŸ™‚
  • Something I love: I love this poem. πŸ˜€ I hope you’ll read it and you’ll share yours!

That’s about it. I’m supposed to tag other people, but I guess most of you did this already. But if you’re reading this post and haven’t done this meme, then I’m passing it on to you. Just remember this simple rule:

Go through your archive and choose five of your favorite posts about your family, friends, yourself, something you love and lastly, your own choice.
