Jamal from the Slum

I truly, really as in (okay exagg to the highest level) adore this kiddo. Everytime I see him in Slumdog Millionaire (EVERYONE!!! you have to watch this movie!) my heart would melt. He's really cute & without any acting experience he did a great job in the movie.

This is my Oscar bet for this year's Best Picture :)

photo updates

I was cleaning my phone image gallery last night kaya nakita kong I was about to make an entry about these photos kaya lang luma na yung iba, here are the pix worth posting before I delete them:

the Xmas gift from Tita Frellie & Tyong Nick arrived this week :) napagretire ko na ng maaga yung iPod Nano ko - it'll now belong to the caring hands of Will... upgraded syempre yung gift sa akin. Thanks Tita Frellie & Tyong!!! Kahit di ako nagrequest niregaluhan ako! Muah!!!

the pug puppy that kuya will buy sana - kung di lang kumontra si inay. isn't he the cutest?

my apo hehehe oo may apo na ako, this is Mikaela, ate Michelle's (pamangkin ko but she's older) daughter

okay ba sa restaurant name? only in Muntinlupa hehehe :)

dream ni Rovs, mag motor sa SLEX na naka complete get up - black leather pants, leather jacket & boots... dream on!

Fall na, I fell inlove with the colors of the leaves - buti pa sa Ayala Alabang dameng trees (photo taken this morning)

lastly, I made this grilled cream of dory with lemon butter sauce last weekend - yummy sya & not just because I made it, I received praises from my inay (na magaling magluto so bihira magbigay ng compliments sa luto ng iba).

Chase is doing the Chase

chase: what do you mean?i dont get it. i wish we cross our sights so that we can talk. don't worry im sure i'll drive far ahead than you coz driving in EDSA (metro manila) daily makes me a real driver!!!!

Are you some kind of a TAXI or TRUCK ah maybe BUS driver? Cos you’re so good hehehe driving in EDSA everyday that’s tough. And it’s really not safe to cross our sights, we might have an accident especially when we’re both driving... malabo na nga mata ko magiging duling pa ako tsk tsk tsk.

chase: you may also contact me if you need a driving instructor coz driving since college helped me a lot! enjoy driving sleepwalker.....

I don't think I'll need a driving instructor because I've been taught by a certified driving instructor & I aced my driving lessons so if in case you see me again on the streets be careful, kase ako I abide by the traffic rules baka ikaw kakatingin mo sa akin may mangyari sayo... ingat ka R.

I started blogging when? Hmmm 3 or 4 years ago? I started this because I was really angry at that time, I need an outlet and oh you know how people say that internet is a powerful tool and you have to use it responsibly? Yeah I was one of those pathetic individuals who took advantage hehehe and I’m glad I did. This piece of page swimming and circling the cyber world became a friend to me. I met other fellow bloggers here and I believe I have received intelligent, interesting (chismax chismax!!!), juicy (chismx pa din!!!), entertaining and helpful information that made me the person that I am today.

My angry “Daria” like way of looking at the world was transformed as my blogging days goes by. There were times when all crazy stuff are written here, when it seems like it is just one of the stupid tabloid sounding (looking) portal or when all that was featured here were a lot of very shallow musings of a bitch. But there are times too when a little sense and care about the world were forcefully plastered to this page.

And the pictures hehehe they’re nice right? The videos, everything stolen from the internet... poems, song lyrics, movie reviews, book reviews – everything! They are pretty awesome sometimes.

With this award, I am thinking of giving my space a name... not just sleepwalker cos’ that’s me but a name that I could use when I’m feeling pathetic and very loser-ly. Like if people will ask what I’m gonna do on a Friday night and of course being the dateless person that I am I’ll just say “I think I’m just gonna go hang out with Abby (read: Anne’s Blog but they don’t know it hahaha)”. Who’s Abby? And I’ll say “Oh you don’t know her, I’ll introduce her to you one of these days”. Hah!... How sad can it be? Hahaha. Or to be more “mysterious” the name should be of a male... Ty (for Tylenol – eases one from a headache), CJ (Cool Journal? Hmmm? Or Sammy (something mine).

I am running out of oxygen in my head so sorry for these craps. I really do sound like a loser, I admit and I surrender!

But hey this poor loser received a NOBLESSE OBLIGE! Beat that!

And I have the authority to throw it back at Daei (thanks dearie for still reading my blog and for bearing with it). The same goes to Monique – thanks for the support hehehe. To Mark Ganter (write a piece about this – puro ka pictures eh!), to Gracious (I think you’re busy, I miss your Bsss, Books, Bags and Broadway info), to Rosey (finally an update!!!) and to everyone in my blogroll. That’s my gratitude speech (of course you have to have one when you receive an award right?).

Para ‘to sa Bayan! Ok that was unnecessary hehehe... God Bless us all!

The effort you exude and the faith you have in yourself counts for more than any accomplishment you can hope to attain, that’s why the "chase" is so exhilarating. The feeling of the unknown and its vast possibilities is somewhat unsettling but ten times more inspiring. (DM)

These things give you hope. The “chase” makes you strive for the best, give your best, be the best.

Is it the same with patience? Or with one’s fortitude in waiting?
