Last Goodbye


Today marks the end of my five and half years career in my company. I feel sad...not! I'm actually in bliss to learn that I have to end my career as quick as a snap of a finger. No more turnovers and the usual half-a-month endorsements, cool isn’t it? For those who might raise their eyebrows, I am saying in truth. This blog expresses only the most-real and honest way I could express how I feel about this major turn-out in my life.

I am very happy because I waited for this and probably I kind of expected it already. For those who might not know, I asked for it years back but didn't get it then. I just want some rest. It's not like wanting to turn a back away from everything but just a genuine rest. I've been working non-stop since I graduated from high school taking the grinds of 14 years of no-rest, some pleasure on the side but the reality to survive is to keep my job. To send my self to college, and at the same time to support a sibling's schooling too and provide for the family. It's not an easy choice but it's a task given by GOD I believe. I have complaints then but not the hard ones though. You don't say beautiful things when you're getting tired after all. So, this break is again another gift from GOD after giving me endless blessings with my job and dreams coming to realities, I should enjoy it to the fullest!

Philippine International Pyromusical - China vs. Netherlands

One of my favorite events of the year, the Philippine International Pyromusical Competition is back for its 4th year of amazing fireworks show in the SM, Mall of Asia, Pasay City. I was privileged to get an invite last weekend for its March 3 show where China and The Netherlands showcased their best performances. The much anticipated Pyromusical began last February and once again, huge crowds would draw to SM Mall of Asia to enjoy the show every Saturday until its last day of competition on March 17.

The skies over Manila bay were amazingly lighted up in a musical pyrotechnic spectacular. At first I wanted to just glue my self in my seat where I can just appreciate the show but I decided to capture everything until my video and camera's memory space were all used up.

"CORAZON: ANG UNANG ASWANG" is Scary and Beautifully made

I’m no fan of horror films because I don’t like spending sleepless nights for the next three days or more after watching a movie. Although some of the movies I’ve seen in the past didn’t actually give me cold sweat after, I still don’t like the idea of choosing a horror movie as priority over other films to watch in a big screen, whether I’m accompanied by small or bigger group of friends. I easily chicken out, that’s it.

TV actress Erich Gonzales is coming up with a horror movie where she plays the title role in “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang”.  At first, I can’t rate whether this movie will be a big hit since the previous film presented by ABS-CBN film outfit, Star Cinema's “Unofficially Yours” is indeed a blockbuster hit. Big pressure is actually on for Erich and Derek Ramsay (who plays role of Corazon's husband in the movie) and newbie director Richard Somes. As the presscon goes on, questions were raised by the press people discussing about a previous indie horror film which was also directed by Somes, from there, I got note of the director's strength to do a challenging movie like Corazon
