LET’S TRY SOMETHING NEW: Cinemalaya 2016

Despite the rainy days, my friends and I went watch an independent movie entitled “Pamilya Ordinaryo”. I, myself, isn’t a fan of going out on rainy days, however, this is a brand new experience for me. I have been wanting to attend Cinemalaya film fest since my first year in college…and finally!!

I went to CCP with Lyka and Keara. Lyka is one my college friends, and Keara is one my hometown friends. I was pretty confident that they will get along since their personality are both out-going, and they got the mountaineer personality.

But upon entering the building we saw this cute Volkswagen mater car. Later did we know that it was one of the stalls that sells foods there. Hahaha!

The movie was truly influential. We went out of the cinema repeating the line – ” Where’s Baby Arjan?!” since it was mentioned in the movie several times. We made jokes out of it, and yes it’s kinda corny, we enjoyed our experience naman eh!

I totally expected that “Pamilya Ordinarya” is an open ended movie – meaning that it will give so many questions at the end like What happened to the characters, What happened to the lady that-. Still, it was absolutely a great movie. It presented us so much knowledge on how hard the life of Filipino street children in the cities. I wish the government could help them..

We were supposed to go to the National Museum, but the rain just won’t stop. So we decided to stay inside which we found a mini-museum on the upper floors.

We found some artistic pieces:

Processed with VSCO with 4 preset
This was one of the writings on the wall full of Hugots.
Friend, you can tell me now.
Wall full of stone carved faces.
I found the three-faced lady.


I was not in the mood to read and look at arts that time, yet I tried to see the deeper meaning of each artwork. And I still feel proud at myself for choosing to learn than to portray my laziness.

It was an awesome experience – wish I could watched the other movies, yet I am prioritizing my thesis this year. Sorry!😦


We often do thing to please other people, to please our parents, our friends, our relatives…but are doing something to please ourselves? Maybe yes, maybe no.

So do this for you, to you and by you.

Have a meal outside by yourself. Enjoy every minute. Try thinking about the goals you want to achieve 10 years from now or even a year from now. Go and watch a movie by yourself. Go buy yourself a gift for standing strong. 

“How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it? Why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager – I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? Two whom shall I make my complaint?” (Kierkegaard’s literary character Young Man in Repetition, 1843)

“Now it is no longer a matter of deciding what to do, but of deciding how to decide.” (May, Love and Will, 1969)

“As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the trye goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the oppurtunity…of learning that death is the key which u locks the door to our tru happiness.” By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“We have become addicted to having rather than being and confusing our needs with our wants” he told Reuters…

And soon I learned that working on these concepts brings me back to where life is. It is beautiful like a flower blooming and stunning like the sun setting from afar.

Pokemon Fan Perspective!


I’ve seen so many hates towards this game, and I’ll try to say my thoughts in a very positive way.

Some people do not like conforming with the trend (like me), and some likes to conform with it. Some people like to publicize everything about them on social media, and some like to keep it to themselves. I get it!

Okay. I get that some people hate this game because of the effects we see on others, but c’mon! Pokemon has been living for so many years! And children/teen like me, who watched the earlier episodes, dreams to become a Pokemon master or simply just to have his own Pokemon..and today is that day. Thanks to the creator of this game, we are living in that dream guys!!!

And for those haters of this game, I hope you guys and gals understand the joy we are feeling today! Please.

Random thought about the Internet

Everyone, including myself, should get-off the internet, get-off their beds – pick themselves up and live their dreams. It may sound so basic, but how can we argue when this statement stated the mere fact of reality.

This is one of those random realizations I get while staring at my phone as the lights slowly dim. Seeing myself inside the horrific world of the internet scares me. I don’t want to be that person who checks his phone for updates or  updates people on what I am doing at that specific moment, what food is on the top of my plate, who are the people I am with….etc. I just want to live in a world that is real and with less of the attention I need.

Recently, I permanently deleted my twitter account to keep myself away from tweeting unnecessary words and to publicize every thing about my life. Haha! 

 So… Goodluck with that!

Gravity that Defies.


I’ve been listening to this song for so many days, and I want to share to you guys how inspiring the song is and the singer (Lea Salonga) in the video. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by the rules of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap!

It’s time to try
Defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I’m defying gravity
And you won’t bring me down

I’m through accepting limits ’cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change but ’til I try, I’ll never know!
Too long I’ve been afraid of losing love I guess I’ve lost
Well, if that’s love, it comes at much too high a cost!

I’d sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I’m defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
And you won’t bring me down

Unlimited (unlimited)
My future is (future is) unlimited (unlimited)
And I’ve just had a vision
Almost like a prophecy
I know it sounds truly crazy
And true, the vision’s hazy
But I swear, someday I’ll be…

Flying so high! (defying gravity)
Kiss me goodbye! (defying gravity)

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately,
“Everyone deserves the chance to fly!”

I’m defying gravity!
And you won’t bring me down, bring me down, bring me down!
Ah, ah [echo]

You can also listen to the ‘Let It Go’ singer Idina Menzel.


Sometimes you just have let the wave take you some place where there is happiness and joy. 

You just have to let the wave take you and not go against it. 

But, the word sometimes has it part with that sentence. Sometimes you have to go with the flow of life, and sometimes you have to take risk and do some sacrificing in achieve your goal. 

Achieving a goal would likely be the most satisfying part in our lives. There’s no other joy when we reached our very goal in life. No person or thing could ever provide or replace that happiness. Haha! That is why I am telling you to EYE ON THE PRICE. It’ll be worth it!
