I'm a kid all over again

>> Sunday, June 28, 2009

I remember watching Transformers as a cartoon series when I was a kid. It was one of the things I shared with my brother, aside from watching WWF [now WWE], Captain Planet, Justice League and Dexter's Lab. I still remember Bumblebee being a chubby transformer, originally being a Volkswagen Beetle.

I had Transformers 2 on my radar for the longest time, probably ever since it was getting shot but it was only last Thursday, the second day of its showing that it struck me to watch. And thank goodness I had time. My colleagues and I were coming back to the city from Clark after days of planning. Shangri La Mall, here we come!
As much as I loved the first installment, I'd have to say that for me, this was so much better in so many levels. As I've said, I watched it last Thursday at Shang, and again last night, last full show at the Eastwood Cinemas where a local Optimus Prime made an appearance [will post photo soon].

  • the TWINS! I don't think I need say more
  • Megan Fox on her Vespa. I was as speechless as my guy friends.
  • Grand finale at the Petra Treasury, Jordan and Egypt -- no more humans being trampled.
  • Josh Duhamel -- again! 
  • Optimus Prime -- always have been my favorite AB [autobot] next to Bumblebee
  • Bumblebee's going-to-college scene
  • Mrs. Witwicky and the 100% Organic Greens :)
  • Grampa Decepticon
But best of all, watching a Transformer movie feels like being a kid again, getting lumps in your throat when a robot dies [and lives again, heh], crossing your fingers hoping your hero wins and he does, choking on your popcorn because you're too entranced and believing the bad will never win over the good guys.

I am crossing my fingers there's a third installment :D


Will You Be There?: A Goodbye to MJ

>> Saturday, June 27, 2009

The white shirt, the black pants and white socks have always been
my favorite MJ get up. Source

But, his get up, his poses, everything on the video of "In the Closet"
with Naomi Campbell and Princess Stephanie of Monaco has gotta be
his sexiest ever. Source
Growing up as a kid, I didn't normally hear Michael Jackson's songs in the radio. In the 90's, MJ's songs became fewer and fewer but everything were extremely good.I remember watching the MTV of the Free Willy OST and I was in love with MJ's song 'Will You Be There.' I then vowed that when he comes to Manila, I would watch, given I had the capability to buy tickets.

Fast forward to x years and now, gone like his ex-wife's father Elvis Presley, I don't think there are anymore concerts to look forward to [well, with the exception of Madonna.] I've been really sad for 2 days now.
I've been listening to MJ like crazy, to all his songs, watching E! and ET and all the channels that are showing blow by blow updates to investigations and etc. Somehow, watching all of it made it feel surreal --- any moment now, I could wake up and MJ is not really dead.
But he is. And it is just plain heartbreaking.

The Heart's a-Flutter

>> Sunday, June 14, 2009

I am on house arrest.

You see, I'm due for some tooth extraction today. But because of unexpected circumstances, I am forced to delay it till Tuesday. Now, my head is spinning and apparently, Mefenamic Acid can only do so much. Cripes. 

Thank goodness, though, I stumbled this via Le Love:

"I want to be a lost poem in a stranger's coat pocket, that conveys the importance of you.
To assure you of my desire, to assure you of dreams. I want all the possibilities of you in writing.
I want to give you your reflection, I want your eyes on me, I want to travel to the lightness with you and stay there, and I want everything before you...
...everything before you to follow us like a trail behind me.
I want never to say goodbye to you, even on the street corner or the phone.
I want, I want so much... I'm breathless.
I want to put my power into a poem to burn a hole in your pocket so I can sew it.
I want my words to scream through you. I want the poem not to mean that much.
And I want to contradict myself by accident, and for you to know what I mean.
I want you to be distant and for me to feel you close, I want endless days when it's day and... nighttime never to end when it's night.
I want all the seasons in one day. I want the sun to set before us and come up in front of us.
I want water up to our waists and to be drenched by the rain, up to our ankles with holes in our shoes.
...with holes in our shoes. I want to think your thoughts because they're mine.
I want only what's urgent with you.
I want to get in the way of the barriers and I want you to be a tough guy when you're supposed to,
like you do already.
...when you're supposed to. And I want you to be tender, like you do already.
And I want us to have met for a reason and I want that reason to be important.
And I want it to be bigger than us, I want it to take over us.
I want to forget. I want to remember us.
And when you say you love me I don't want to think you really mean New York City, and all the fun
we have in it.
And I want your smile always, and your grimaces too.
I want your scar on my lips, and I want your disappointments in my heart.
I want your strength in my soul and I want your soul in my eyes.
I want to believe everything you say, and I do.
And I want you to tell me what's best when I don't know.
And when you're lost I want to find you.
And when you're weary I want to give you steeples and cathedral thoughts and coliseum dreams.
I want to drag you from the darkness and kneel with you exhausted with the blinding light blaring on us... and..."

-Chelsea Walls

Sigh. I can go to sleep now.


I call this Travel Prep

Happy Triangle 2: Victorian Printed / Purple / Zebra
arrived from Soak Swimwear.

I've been waiting for the opportunity to buy Soak and since most of my beach travel plans for the past few months were often made last minute, I wasn't able to buy a pair from them. But now that my KK plans with D and C are months away, I made sure I didn't pass the chance before they get sold out [as of this minute, they are]. 

And speaking of deliveries, another online purchase came today, another proof that being on self-mandated bed rest can't keep you from breaking your wallet. My acid wash jean lust has overpowered the little discipline I managed to keep, thus, this:

* They have nice stuff. It's a sin not to check them out. :D


FOTD: Mac's Wedding

>> Friday, June 12, 2009

It's been so long since I had an actual entry here in my blog :( Work has been crazy, I've been everywhere as well, and my wisdom tooth decided to rear it's ugly head. I'm in so much pain right now. :((

Anyhoo, last weekend, I was off to the North and attended my friend's beautiful wedding at the Nativity Church in Marikina. I was one of the liturgical sponsors, too.

Naturally, I was crying during the ceremony. :D Reception followed at the Glass Garden, Maj. Dizon St. Marikina.

The bride followed by the groom, Jordan

Vintage memorabilia from the couple
Movie posters starring Jordan and Mac
The reception was this beautiful.

 Their pre-nup photo, placed on frames and mounted on tables at the reception.
I was not able to take a photo of the cake and words would probably fail me,
but it was one of the most beautiful cakes I've seen, this one in the shape of
a camera. It perfectly accentuated the couple's love for photography and Mac's
passion for all things vintage.

With the girls: Marga, Lean, Clai and Me :D
And as for my FOTD:

Vintage Craze

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2009

All of a sudden, I want a lot of vintage-y things. The other day, I was inspired by acid wash jeans. Today, I want vintage shirts, cameo necklaces and a Holga. It seems that I'm getting tossed back to the 90's or earlier --- a good thing, I must say.

via lookbook

It's been raining in Manila for a few days now and while it makes me want to just lie down and snooze, it's also giving me a sad and wild case of ADD. I've become so restless that I tend to do one thing, stop halfway, do something else and go back. It makes me want to leave all the structured things in life, everything that makes sense and just be carefree. If only it was THAT easy.

Zina D. via lookbook, she is THAT worth checking out, I tell ya.
Her outfits are insanely to die for.
