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…

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…
