Of good news and film adaptations!!!


Have you watched Divergent already??? If you did, please don’t spoil it for me. I haven’t watched the film adaptation yet because I’m planning to finish reading the book first before watching the movie. But still there are many upcoming film adaptations of our beloved books this year and I just want to read all of these books before deciding which movie to watch (who am I kidding? Of course I’ll be watching all of it!!!).

I’m very much excited for The Fault in Our Stars. I can’t wait to finally watch two giddy cancer patients fall in love and create a love story so sick it will make me cry blood (pardon my exaggeration).    

Not just that, another John Green novel is set to hit the big screen soon.

Here's the full story.


Adding up to my growing anticipation for TFIOS is the film adaption of Paper Towns. Honestly, I still need to finish other books before continuing my break from John Green’s Paper Towns. But I’m positive that I’ll finish all those pending reads and continue reading PT before its premiere date which is still unknown.

Who here is already thrilled for the initial release of The Giver on August 15, 2014?

2014 is the year of dystopian-themed movies!!! And ohh of film adaptations of books too! With Taylor Swift joining other stellar casts like Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Alexandar SkarsgĂ„rd, I’ll be expecting a lot from this movie. Thus, this will be added to my to-read list this year.
Another good news to all Mitch Albom fans out there, The First Phone Call From Heaven will also have its own film adaptation! (see news here)

So that makes two good news this week: film adaptations of John Green’s Paper Towns and The First Phone Call From Heaven written by Mitch Albom.

Isn’t that truly amazing? It really is.

So many books to read and movies to watch!

Life is good.

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…
