3 Idiots: An idiotic review

Released on 2009, the movie focuses on the friendship of three Engineering students namely: Rancho, Farhan, and Raju. It centers on the star-crossed lives of the three men and the struggles they experienced during their stay at the Imperial College of Engineering (ICE). A flashback of their school memories were used to direct the plot of the movie. The story starts with Farhan faking a collapse just to return to ICE and look for Rancho alongside with Raju and Chatur also known as “The Silencer”. Their search for their lost friend brought them to the far flung places of India. And the journey keeps on getting interesting as the plot thickens into a variety of twists and turns. 

Moral Lesson of the story

The movie taught me how to live my life the way I wanted it to be. It also made me realize that what matters most are the things that will make me happy.  Most struggling students out there might relate to Farhan’s situation, maybe because their parents have already planned their careers and lives ahead of them. Not knowing that it only pressures their children and also makes them suffer. I too can also relate to Farhan’s character, it is because I found it difficult to stay intact with my course and some of my subjects this term. Though difficult, I’m still doing the best that I could to show a straight-faced and a normal “Tobby” in front of my classmates. I just hope I could live through all the expectations they have for me (whoever they maybe).

Farhan did not want to become an Engineer; he wanted to be a professional photographer all his life. With the help of Rancho and his unwavering encouragement, Farhan realized that what he wanted matters and that is photography. Raju, the religious one from the trio fears everything, especially the future. That for once he decided ending his life after Mr. Virus attempted on rusticating him from the University. He jumped from the building, broke most of his bones, and fell into a comatose. Luckily, with the help of Farhan and Rancho’s brilliant mind, they were able to wake Raju from his deep coma. The experience taught Raju to be prepared of what the future holds and to keep his attitude as it is.

The movie discusses most of the realities of life. But it focuses more on doing what will make you happy, whatever the cost is as long as you know that in the end you’ll never regret those decisions you made in your life.

The Trio

I envy the trio in the movie not because I don’t have a trio of my own but because I thought I would have it for once. It so happen that circumstances dissolved the trio into duo leaving the other guy alone, and that outcast was me. Maybe just maybe things do happen for a reason because right now I’m happily mingling with my new group of friends. I’ve already gotten over it and now I can say that I really know who my true idiot friends are (What a relief!).

In the end they found Rancho who is now Phunsukh wangdu who is already a well known scientist and a teacher with Pia (Rancho’s love interest) kidnapped from her wedding. And so it ends on a high note because in the end everything is well!

When faced with uncertainties, difficulties, and skepticism in life just tell yourself “Aal iz Well” and everything will be.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

Happy Mother's Day Ma!

My dearest mama,
How are you?
How is everything up there?
Are you doing well there? I hope you’re doing great.
Is it true what they tell us here? That there is no pain and sickness there? Only happiness and eternal peace?  If that’s true then I’m envious of you. You are in a better position than all of us here.
To update you on my life here’s the status quo: Grief has always been a daily thing for me now. Since the day you left us, there’s that emptiness in my heart – a hole that remains, a void that sits somewhere and always tries to make its presence felt.
There are also these waves they call, when out of nowhere I am reminded of you and then a wave of emotion just stirs me to tears.  It leaves me for a while and returns with an increased intensity. Somehow I get used to these waves and the heaviness that comes with it. There are bearable moments, when I can just fight back the tears. But then there are also tough days when I’m at a public place and I cannot control myself from crying. O…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…
