My thoughts after watching Hunger Games: Catching Fire


I will try my best to shorten as much as possible this blog entry for brevity purposes.

They surely look sizzling hot in their capitol costumes. image:

It was a rollercoaster of emotions. I got angry, scared, pissed off, sad (with teary eyes), jubilant and ecstatic from the opening scene until the credits rolled in. CF is officially one of the best movies of 2013 if not, the best movie of the year!

As far as my knowledge with Catching Fire is concern the movie remained loyal to the book, but we can never expect Francis Lawrence to stay 100% true to the book’s plot. He added minor changes which I believe helped the movie in totality. 

The film adaptation did not disappoint me (that’s evident on the previous paragraphs).

I’ve already read the book and I’ve already anticipated the major plot twists and shockers in CF but it was such a thrilling experience as I was always on the edge of my seat the entire time. I have never experienced this kind of euphoria since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Another thing that I find too difficult to miss is the stunning performance of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. I love every part of her portrayal as well as the other casts.

I’ve asked most of my friends who weren’t able to read Catching Fire and have watched the movie first on their comments regarding the movie. Majority of them agreed with me without any coercion that the movie was awesome and a hit. They also added that the cliff hanger towards the end of the film thrilled them, making them more excited to watch the last two movies.

Mockingjay Part 1 is already in the works with the premiere date slated on November 21, 2014. Part 2 will have its premiere date on November 20, 2015.

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…

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…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
