I'm a fan of McG, so I go see this film with impossibly high expectations.
And I must say, this movie does not disappoint.
I guess when you put two extremely attractive and dashing men, a girl next door type, a spy-ish inspired story and a kickass director, you get a movie worth seeing over and over again.
The fight scenes, the lines, the men, Reese's legs and her moments with Chelsea Handler all make this movie so entertaining you don't want it to end. And let's not forget the bromance brewing between Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
Two guys saying "I love you" to each other even after fighting over a girl? That is something else...
I have to quote Chelsea Handler's character Trish when she gave this advise:
"Don't go with the better guy. Go with the guy who makes you better."
It was a boring saturday evening when my sisters and I decided to go and watch the 17th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta at Clark Airfield in Pampanga.
It was the last day of the event so we left the house at around 3am. As expected, hundreds are already there before the 5am start.
It’s our first time to go to this event and I must say, that everyone should make this a yearly ritual for the family. Aside from the colorful hot air balloons, other activities for the family include skydiving, kite flying and airplane flying exhibitions, rescue demonstrations, military displays and food, food, food.
One tip though, you have to arrive early (o/a 5am) because the traffic is so bad and there are limited parking spaces available. Also, make sure that you have your tickets in advance to avoid the long lines at the entrance. Lastly, bring a hat, a picnic mat, some good company and don’t forget your camera.
Oh, and we also ate some late lunch at a.c Rumpa. It stands for Angeles City Retired US Militar…
It's time I write about my favorite tv series, Bones. What I like most about Bones is that it features a very smart, strong willed and independent character based on the real life author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs.Sure, we have a lot of TV shows featuring women as the central characters, but somehow those shows do not feel as empowering and inspiring. Just take these examples:
1. Sex and the City -Rich, independentand career oriented women looking for – s… (shoes perhaps?) 2.Cougartown – When an older woman is attractive enough to get a younger guy, she is immediately characterized as a member of the cat family 3.Gossip Girl - Young and fashionably dressed women who love to gossip 4.Ugly Betty – If you’re pretty, you’re likely a scheming bitch.But if you are a sensitive, kind hearted girl, you’re… well… “ugly” 5.Desperate Housewives, Pretty Little Liars, etc. – The title says it all.Ouch! I would like to think that this is because most American writers are men and don’…
If you think being in a relationship is hard, at times.
Imagine being single...on Valentine’s day.
Feb 14 is one of the few moments of the year where I hate being single. The other one is when it’s cold and I see a cute couple sharing an umbrella in the rain (emphasis on cute).
It’s the time of the year when I look at affectionate couples holding hands, whispering and smiling and thought to myself, "When?"
Surely, I've waited long enough. In elementary, I told myself "High school is the right time". Then in high school "It will come in college". After 4 years in a coed university not lacking cute, smart and eligible guys, I told myself "I'll meet him after I graduate. When I'm ready to prioritize other things." Then after years of being employed and nearing the end of my twenties, I've stopped asking questions (and answering myself).
He will come, I know. But I’m sure not gonna wait for him like a lovesick puppy and be miserable.
I'm a lover of dogs and good photography. So I'm posting about Traer Scott and his photos of shelter dogs.
According to his website:
"Photographer Traer Scott's endearing portraits of dogs living in American shelters are irresistible and heart-rending—making a passionate appeal to dog lovers everywhere. Some of the dogs subsequently found good homes; others were never adopted. The portraits reveal the strikingly intense emotion, dignity and, sometimes, humor and whimsy that Scott saw in each face despite the dog's circumstances. By documenting the undeniable expressions of emotion in the dogs encountered in her volunteer work, Scott raises awareness of animal rescue causes, and especially the need for more adoptive homes for abandoned dogs. This book of true portraits of fifty beautiful shelter dogs is a poignant and loving tribute to all dogs. For every copy of Shelter Dogs sold $.50 will be donated to the ASPCA®" And please, adopt a pet if you can. They need g…
