I just found out this morning that Ben or the wifey could be reading this tabloid. I don’t visit my page hits summary since forever and when I finally did this morning, I was shocked to find their company IP listed on the summary. And guess what, the IP was a frequent visitor.

Ben, if you’re reading this hehehe hello to you! I know you know you’re Ben (nga ba?). If it’s not you or the wifey… hmmm who could it be?

I’ll behave from now on. But wait, why should I? I didn’t do anything wrong, di ba?

So guys, read on & enjoy ;) hehehe.

27 Dresses

Succeeded in doing its primary objective: to entertain the viewers

Those who loves Katherine Heigl would need not worry about what will be the outcome of this movie for her, and to those James Marsden fanatics (like me who’s a new convert – add Enchanted to the bill) will love him even more.

I personally love the end credits - it's very creative & funny.

I am chick flick sucker that is why this movie made me want to wish for my own cynical, impossible, unbeliever of marriage creep because later on (& because he met me) he’ll be transformed into this perfect groom meant only for me.

I already have 4 dresses in my closet, 2 more will be added this year… 21 more to go?

I hope not ;)

PS: I am not that happy, I am still depressed over the fact Heath is now a was.

Goodbye my Boys

He’s a cute boy with a lovely future – he acts really well. A wonder boy, a talented child star. He died at the age of 25 – possible reason was drug abuse & excessive alcohol intake.

He’s a promising Aussie bloke, loved by a lot in his brilliant Patrick performance opposite Julia in the adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming the Shrew. He was blessed with a baby girl in 2006. What can go wrong, he’s just 28? Is it suicide?

They’re young and with bright futures yet they’re troubled and very tired of life.

May you both rest in peace Brad & Heath.

Cupcake Wisdom

You cannot sit around like a cupcake asking other people to come and eat you up and discover your great sweetness and charm. You’ve got to make yourself more cupcakable all the time so that you’re a better cupcake to be gobbled up.

- Helen Gurley Brown

Nice way of putting "self-help" in a sentence.

I’ve been trying to discipline myself more this year in terms of my sleeping habits, the food I eat and exercise. The past few days I was watching bit by bit a cute Korean novella that I saw in one of the local channels. Luckily a DVD with the complete episode of that novella is already available at my friendly DVD store. I’m a TV & DVDholic, it is my known weakness to finish a 20 episode show in one sitting (or in some cases slouching or even stumbling in bed is also involved). I am amazed at myself on the developments I had in terms of sleeping early. When the clock strike 12 am I made sure that I turn the TV & DVD player off. I’ve been doing it for a week already and I was able to finish the whole DVD in 4 sessions. It is a great accomplishment on my part that is why I chose to mention it here as an entry, to congratulate myself (hahaha because no one will). I’ve been a pro insomniac for years now that is why it is really vital to discipline oneself and free the mind on a certain time. It doesn’t matter if I can’t sleep as long as I was able to rest my mind & body. But I should say that sleep is still by far the best form of relaxation for everyone.

I feel a little sad over the fact that my reading habit in the last year was really poor. I have read very few books and it made me assess myself on what I really care for in life. For me learning is everything… I love books, I love watching movies, I love the TV. I learn a lot from those things especially from the books. I remembered my friends especially Jenny using my books as hostages when she or they (together with Jeng, they love to blackmail me using my books) wants to torture me or wants me to do something risky that I do not want to be a part of. That’s how important my books are to me and unfortunately I am not ready to give them up – yet. I was a little disappointed with myself that I was not able to read good quality books in 2007. I have read a few and started on a lot and failed to finish. But this year I started to read again, beginning with the unfinished Letters to a Young Poet which I started last year in September. I alternately read it with a new book I got as a present from my good friend Moises - Nora Ephron’s Wallflower at the Orgy. I read 2 books sometimes so as not to feel overwhelmed or saturated over one story. It can also stop the boredom I feel towards one book when I think it is beginning to get dragging.

There are times when one would often contemplate on the things he or she did in the past especially when the result is not what was intended to be. The usual question would be what went wrong? What should be done instead? Did I go overboard? Are my efforts not good enough? We ask all of these but the answer is just simple either it’s not meant to be or that it is worth giving it another shot. In any of these reasons that you want to believe in there would always be 2 sides, the yes and the no, the black and the white. No maybe and no such thing as gray. It is really a wild world, it is always best to be strong. Life is short, you’d know in your heart if one this is worth the risk and once you do realize that it is, whatever happen, never ever entertain regret.

Because he got married, I bought myself this ring the very afternoon of the day I heard about the news. And now I don't want to wear it. Talk about impulsive buying, being stubborn and cruel to own self. But it's kinda cute. Will use it on the next social function I'll be in (tuninoninu... ano kaya?)

The Year That Was

(written Jan 3, 2008)
First of all Happy Birthday to my dear Tita Eden and to my good friend Marco. The great ones are born every 3rd of January – apart from those born on the best day which is Sept 20 (hehehe).

(di na ito news because it ended yesterday) My friends are going crazy over Cebu Pacific’s Piso fare which started today and will last until Jan 6 so if you guys are planning to take a vacation anywhere in the Phils by Jan 22 up to March 31 take advantage of their promo. O ayan CebPac, free plugging.


I’ve read my friend’s recap of 2007 in their blogs and I am planning to do one myself (inggitera)but then the thought I always have about this year is that I didn’t feel it cause it just passed me by. It flew real fast that all I can think about in the future whenever 2007 is mentioned is that I got a surprise 28th birthday party from my good friends and that I went to Bora with my lovely bestfriend (where we had the last day on earth feeling). That’s the highlight I think of my 2007.

2007 really didn’t linger… but I am thankful that 1 year went by, I feel loved, I am blessed and almost there to being genuinely happy. Not that I am miserable the past year, I was not and in fact I was and am okay. I usually compare the entry I had the previous year whenever I have the urge to rant and be depressed on my blog and luckily I can say that I was chirpier in 2007 than 2006. I have my parents at home with me most of the time. I have the company of my pamangkins. And I have the bestest friends anyone could wish for, so in conclusion I had a pretty decent 2007 and thank God for everything.

I don’t make resolutions for I often break them all before the end of each January (that fast). I don’t even plan, majority of them weren’t executed and if they are they were unsuccessful. So what’s my point here? Wala lang, I just want to wish for a great new year, a happier one – an exciting one.

So I skip making resolutions and planning every year… what do I do best? I dream, after all I’m a sleepwalker (not a somnambulist). I wish for things to happen and I pray. And I hope too, for the best.
