Resting Place


I am a blogger. That I have established early on in my life. I realize that I have opinions and I enjoy voicing them out. I like telling people of my experiences, no matter how common they may be & I relish getting reactions from them, good or otherwise.

And so, I have searched for a place in which to put all my writings in place. I have tried Friendster, but it's a little outdated. Multiply, but I hated it when it got updated. And so, I have hibernated and kept all my thoughts inside until I found a well deserved resting place for them.

Here... now... is where I would start again. But since starting over requires some good old lessons from the past, I will be posting and consolidating all my blogs from before here. So don't be misled if you read me being senti & heartbroken, dreamy, dissapointed, etc (it's all in the past, i hope...)

Readers, I hope you continue to read my blogs. They might not give you life's lessons but you will get a dash of entertainment and then some....

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"


The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.


Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

Singapore

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)



Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

March 8: International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8th each year. The day is about celebrating the vital role women play in enhancing economic security for their families, communities and countries as a whole while recognising that significant barriers to achieving women's economic security and equality continue to exist.

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
