Me, Blue, Jhona, Makriz and Angeli decided to see a movie last friday and since Singapore is lacking quality movies right now, we picked Burlesque. Actually gusto ko talagang makita at suportahan si Ninang Cher! Hi Ninang!

Unang makita ko sa STAGE si NINANG with a performance, talaga namang PLANGAK pa rin sa kagandahan! BIDA!!! Patron ka pa rin ng sangKABAKLAAN at dapat awardan ka for best in makeup dahil nagawa mong magmukhang 30 years old despite na 64 ka na. BONGGA!

On to the movie, what I like about the movie is not the plot, well obviously, but the lessons it tells about STEPPING UP and making it on your own. In the world that I live, stepping up is part of our daily work life.

There are three scene in the movie that I like.

1.) During the audition of Ali(Christina) to be a replacement for a dancer who got pregnant with his boyfriend. Ali is demanding Tess for an answer in which the latter told her that no one can give her the answer, if Ali wants to be a dancer then show everyone that she is a dancer or something to that effect. Just like in our life, kung gusto natin umasenso then pakita natin sa lahat yung gusto natin, stop running around in circles asking everyone for answers dahil kahit sila naghahanap din ng kasagutan.

2.) Tess to Ali "You're not always the New Girl". Tama, laging merong bago at meron darating na mas magaling sa atin. Anu dapat gawin? we must evolve and step to the next level. Hwag kang huminto sa iisang lugar, always seek for improvements para kapag dumating si New Girl or New Guy hindi ka mathethreaten. Tandaan, ang mga bago ang gagawa ng mga dati mong trabaho kaya dapat ikaw hahanap ka naman ng bagong gagawin, magsawa ka naman no.

3. When the curtain is about to fall instead of cowering, Ali used that opportunity to turn the tides on her favor(SING-GALORE!). We must see every good and bad thing as an opportunity and work it in our favor else we will regret to losing that shot and what will be left for us are only "what ifs"

Hindi dahil sa singing and dancing ako nahumaling sa movie na kahit tawa ng tawa yung katabi ko, I mustered my strength to focus on the movie (sayang yung bayad, ang mahal mahal). Kaya ayan ang dahilan kung bakit gusto ko yung burlesque. at wala akong pakealam sa mga reviews na yan dahil mas gusto ko na ako ang magjudge kung maganda o hindi.

Biruin mo may kinapulutan akong aral sa movie na sayawan at kantahan. hahaha

People make things complicated, or at least will give you ideas that will make you go nuts, when you mention one thing to them. What do I mean by that? Well as you all know (as if may nagbabasa ng blog ko) my life is based here in Singapore and one thing that keeps me from going to the Philippines is that I have no place to stay there.

I still have my parents and they still have their house, the downside is, they lived in DasmariƱas, Cavite where getting there would take at least 2-4 hours because of the awful traffic flow in Aguinaldo Highway. The upside is, we live near Tagaytay, yihee!

Anyway, I mentioned to some of my friends and family the idea of owning a condo unit somewhere in Manila just so I have a place to stay whenever I am in the area. Some of their reactions are:

Grace: Naku F___, hwag na Condo kasi kung lumindol at gumuho yung building, nasan na property mo?
Me: Sabagay most of the condos in Manila gawa sa kawayan.

Patrick: Sa Serendra? hwag na dun super baba ng ceiling nila, ambisyosa yung units dun.
Me: Ang tangkad mo naman kasi, sa height ko mataas na yun.

Me: Sa fort area na lang kaya?
Rhona: binabaha sa area na yun eh, although maganda rin yung naidudulot ng baha sa condo sa fort.
Me: (puzzled) bakit naman?
Rhona: ... lumalabas kasi yung mga gwapo hihihihi

Sir John: Yes, kumuha ka sa area ng U-Belt tapos parentahan mo sa mga estudyante dun para yung renta eh yun ang pambabayad mo monthly. Since bata ka pa dapat ang inuuna mong bilhin eh yung mga property, yung may value hindi puro damit at laruan.
Me: (feeling batang napagalitan)

Mama: bakit ayaw mo nang tumira dito anak? Ayaw mo na sa amin ng Papa mo?
Me: (irritated) dun ka tumira habang nasa SG ako!
Mama: (delighted) Yung malapit sa Mall ang kuhanin natin tsaka yung may Veranda.

Ate: Akala ko ba mag-ma-migrate ka na sa ibang bansa tapos bibili ka ng property dito? Paano mo ididispose yan?!

And the list goes on...

Most of them are convincing me to buy a house and lot instead of a 1 or 2 room condo unit. To me, maintaing a house will be too much for me since, as I said, I live here in Singapore and I don't want to trouble my parents for doing that responsibility since they have their own problems to deal with.

Yes, it's fun in Manila but if I have no place there I wouldn't want to tire myself from going back and forth from Cavite to Manila everytime there is a happening. Patrick, my bestfriend, is offering his pad but being an Introvert, I want a place where I can be alone with my thoughts.

Lord, wala na nga akong LOVELIFE pati ba naman Place to stay? Help me naman!

Actually, I have a choice. I just need to be in control with it.

By the way, I'm still suffering from the flu and dry cough I got from my trip back home.

January 15, 2010. The date of Ponch and Charms wedding.

To sum up, all the gang went home to be a witness to one of our friends' most special event in their life. The wedding was celebrated in The Shrine of Jesus and the reception was held in Manila Peninsula. (SOSYAL!)

I can't think of any words to describe the wedding, all I can think of is it was beautiful, it says everything about the bride and the groom. It was elegant and beautiful just like Charms and fun and handsome just like Ponch. That's it.

Just how all the wedding should be, all about the bride, the groom, their life and their love.

Below are the pictures taken during the wedding.
