kung bakit bad trip ako ngayon

Monday, May 31, 2004

I was in dreamland. I don't remember what the dream was about, but I know it was pleasant. Then the phone rang. Dang it! I had no plans of answering it, I wanted to go back to my dream. But the ring of the phone became quite irritating so reached out and answered it (besides, I thought it might have been an emergency).

Of course I was grumpy. Who wouldn't be, fi the phone rang at 3:00 in the morning? I said, "Hello", and there was a guy on the other line looking for a girl named Sheila. Apologetic naman sha for waking me up, pero Leche! Binulabog mo ako, wrong number ka naman?! So I said, sorry wrong number. I was about to put the phone down and go back to sleep, when he said he got the number from a business card sent to him. Lalo ako nainis. Sarap ng tulog ko noh? I told him, "There's no one by that name living here." Then he said something. I got even more pissed off. OO perv sha!

I think I cursed him all the curses I know (hehehe... madami-dami yun, sobrang bad trip ako eh). Sus noh, sarap sarap ng tulog ko pos gigisingin ako ng pervert?! Grrr!

Bakit ba may mga taong ganun?!

Saturday, May 29, 2004

I didn't blog yesterday because bad trip ako. Self pity mode kung baga. Kainis! That's the feeling I hate the most. Fortunately, I don't have it often.

I guess because I was keeping everything inside me, it became too much that I just burst. Someone said something to me, and I felt hurt. I tried to brush it off but I just felt the tears streaming down my face. I hated that I cried and mom saw me. Instead of me comforting her coz she was in pain, she comforted me. Lalo ako naiyak nun. Mababaw lang naman kasi ako eh. Tanoungin mo lang ako how my day went, or kahit tanumgin mo lang kung ok lang ako, masaya na ako nun. Or kung kaya ko pa ba? Kaso wala eh. Siguro sensitive lang ako mashado. kaya ayun, drama mode na naman ako.

Hay kainis. I wish I could blog about something happy that happened to me for a change.

RT event last night - Ripe Tomatoes at Eastwood. I was so looking forward to going. 24 of the best Pinoy Bands in one concert, a chance to see friends, free beer and ice cream (hahaha! gandang combination. :p), who wouldn't wanna go di ba? Everything was set. I was gonna meet up with friends (hindi pwede brother ko coz he had classes the next day, si chie di din pwede), and we were gonna have a blast. But the day came, I was all set, I even talked to my friends where and what time we would meet and I didn't have the heart to go. I thought I could do it, but I couldn't. Di ko kaya na mom was in pain, tapos ako nagsasaya.

Mom didn't mind that I was going out. Sabi nga nya, I need to have fun naman. Pero di ko talaga kaya. I wanted to go but my heart wasn't in it. Di naman ako pa-martir effect. Di ko lang talaga kaya na gumimik knowing na si mommy may nararamdaman. Di ko kayang i-block out yun from my mind, even for a few hours.

Even if she doesn't tell me that it hurts, I know she's in pain. I guess I've developed some sort of a sixth sense when it comes to how mom feels.

Good thing the event was broadcast live on the radio. My friends texted and called, so I felt that I was there na din. Well, ok, listening to the event doesn't compare to actually being there, but it was good enough for me. :) But when the band Sandwich performed, dun ako nainggit. Haha! I wished I was there. Sooper Galeng! Haay.. never mind. There will be more events like this in the future. :)

Mood: so-so
Listening to: Talk Shows on Mute - Incubus

ever since Blogger launched it's latest version, I've been thinking of revising my template and using one of it's own, with all the new features. There's only one thing stopping me: I don't wanna lose the customizations I did to my blog. But as soon as I figure out how I'd like it to look after template merging, I'll give it a try. :)

-------------

Last Monday, on the way to St. Luke's I was listening to The Get Up & Go Show on RT (as usual) and Schmoey read an article about, Swedish showbiz expert Mikael Jagerbrand's Top Ten Smelliest Celebrities List. The list broke my heart. Hahaha! Grabeh, I couldn't believe it! I was flabbergasted to say the least. You'd think they'd be able to buy deodorant or take a bath everyday with all the money they make. I mean, come on! How hard is it to have proper hygiene? Sheesh!

Here's the Top Ten (with my comments)

1. BRAD PITT - Noooooooo! This cannot be true! He's too damned handsome to be stinky! (and to think I envied Jennifer Aniston. hahaha!)
2. RUSSELL CROWE - Eh, sorry but he does look smelly. Wahahaha!
3. HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN - He looked stinky on "Life as a House" but I thought that was just the part he played. :p
4. DAVID BOWIE - his wife is a supermodel (Iman) with her own cosmetics/beauty line, you'd think she'd give him hygiene advice.
5. COURTENEY COX - She played OC Monica on Friends.. how ironic
6. ROBIN WILLIAMS - hehehe.. he's hairy.. go figure!
7. CHRISTINA AGUILERA - so that's why she sang "Dirrty". Hahahaha! but come to think of it, she does look smelly :p
8. CAMERON DIAZ - I wasn't surprised when I learned she was on the list. I wonder why...
9. METALLICA - Ay sus! leather + sweat = stink (hehehe! pinanindigan yung pagiging rockstars)
10. BOB DYLAN - I wasn't surprised either :p

I don't know how much of an expert Mr. Jagerbrand is (I've never heard of him until Monday), I gotta research more on him. waahahaha!

Mom's second chemo cycle was last night. We were discharged this morning, but we got home after lunch coz there were so many things to do before we could check out of the hospital. We also waited for the doctors to make their rounds, and needless to say, they were late (or maybe they had a lot of patients).

Compared to mom's first session, this one feels more tiring. Maybe because I was PMS-ing, or mom & I were both stressed. But during the span of 24 hours, we managed to piss each other off twice. I know it's bad for her to get angry, but we were both kinda snappish. After we "released" it though, we were both okay. Tawa na naman kami ng tawa. I don't know, maybe it's true what they say that when people are in close company, we tend to clash personalities.

While mom was sleeping, I was scolding myself. I know I shouldn't react when she's kinda masungit. I'm supposed to understand that she's masungit coz she feels discomfort during the chemo session, and that there are a lot of things on her mind. Inis na inis ako sa sarili ko. My excuse was: I was PMS-ing. But even I didn't buy it. It felt so convenient to blame it on PMS. Maybe I was being too hard on myself. Ewan.

When we got home, that's when I felt sooo tired. I had to force myself to eat (coz I hadn't eaten since the night before) and my eyes were beginning to droop. The second my head touched the pillow, I was asleep. Sarap ng feeling pagka-gising ko, pero mejo pagod pa din ako. I hope I'm not gonna get sick. I need to be healthy. Kelangan ako ni mommy, especially the days immediately after her chemo session. Note to self: take vitamins!

Anyhoo.. this has been kinda long. I gotta catch up on my zzzzzzs.

PS: American Idol finale tomorrow. I hope Fantasia wins. :D


rainy sunday :)

Sunday, May 23, 2004

Sarap ng weather. Malamig. Maulan. Just the way I like it. :D bed weather - kasi masarap matulog. hmm.. ano inisip mo? hehehe...

I will be on blog hiatus again this week. 2nd chemo cycle ni mommy, so we'll be in St. Luke's again. It's already 9 pm and I still haven't packed yet. But I have a prety good idea what I'll bring. Aside from my clothes and kikay stuff, I will bring books (don't know what yet), my diary & several pens (hehehe, which I will use depending on my mood - weird no?), discman & cds, a pillow & a blanket, and playing cards. I think that will be wnough to keep me busy when mom is sleeping and doesn't need me. :)

Mom's doctor said she'll have 3 cycles of chemo and depending on the results after 3, she'll decide if mom needs another. I hope it will only be 3, coz I know how hard it is for mom. But if it's really necessary for another session or two, all I pray is for the effects to be milder.

I hope this week will be a good week for everyone. :D

It's been a while since I last blogged. The prevous one doesn't count coz I just copied the lyrics from here. hehehehe...

I haven't blogged for a number of reasons. 1. I've been quite busy, 2. I wasn't in the mood to blog (writer's block maybe?), 3. I wanted to write something but I couldn't, coz it involves someone who reads my blog and I don't want that person to know about it (yoko nga, hiya ako eh. wahahaha!). I wrote it on my diary at home though. :p

Ay, before I forget, happy birthday to my cousin, Caloy! Actually, his birthday was yesterday, but I didn't blog :p. Hmmm.. Shel, if you're reading this, pakisabi kay Caloy inaantay ko pa din yung libre nya. hihihi!

Hay shucks! gustong-gusto ko talaga isulat dito. Jennie, STOP IT! hindi pwede! delikado, mabubuko ako. hihihi! O sige clue na lang... may connect yung kanta na pinost ko sa gusto kong isulat. nyarks! *hides under a rock*

Wahahahaha! I just remembered something that when I first read it made me laugh so hard, tears rolled down my face. Backgrounder muna: My favorite station, is sponsoring a Tribute to Pinoy Bands Concert, entitled, Ripe Tomatoes. It will be held on May 28, 2004 at Eastwood, Libis. This concert is free and the registered users/forumers at the RT website are entitled to one free beer yata, basta ipapakita kay Raleigh (WebJock) yung printout ng pinadala nyang newsletter. :p This event will also serve as a Grand EB of sorts for the RT community (jocks, forumers, chaddiks, & listeners).



Anyway, there's this forum thread at the website which asks, "Who is going to Ripe Tomatoes?". There was this one post from someone, who I'd rather not identify (hahaha!). And she said she'll go, she hopes to meet other forumers there, etc. Then she asks, "ano kaya ang attire? hmmm.... Casual or "semi-casual?" WAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! SEMI-CASUAL?!! foocha! sumakit ang tiyan ko, kakatawa! ano yung semi-casual? di ko maimagine. formal top & jeans? t-shirt & pouffy skirt with petticoat? hihihi!

Yoko na... naiiyak na naman ako kakatawa!! wahahahahahahah!

a little bit
by mymp

i was kinda hesitant to tell you
should i let you know?
i was never really like this before
need i say more?

or maybe i'm confused when you are near me
i don't know what to do or i should be
there's only one thing in my mind
that's you and me...

i'm a little bit of crazy
i'm a little bit of a fool
i'm a little bit of lonely
i'm a little bit of all
oh, i need a cure
just a little bit of you
and i will fall...

i'm always on the run to see you
would you allow me to?
it wasn't my intention to hurt you
this feeling is true

or maybe i'm confused when you are near me
i don't know what to do or i should be
there's only one thing in my mind

On patience

Monday, May 17, 2004

If there is one thing I hate to do it is waiting. I don't want others to wait for me so I expect the same thing from others. I get bored and impatient easily. If I'm supposed to meet someone and he/she is late, it's a mark against that person. If a date is late... sus! major turn-off yun.

Patience has never been my strongest virtue. But ever since mom changed doctors, I realized that I now have a higher tolerance for waiting. Yes I still get bored and impatient, but now I find myself becoming more patient. For example, if before I get cranky when I've been waiting 30 minutes, now I get cranky when I've waited 2 hours. :p

Today I reached another "milestone". Mom and I waited for 3 1/2 hours at Dra. Gorospe's clinic. Grabeh!!! She's leaving for the States tomorrow, so today was her busiest clinic day. If waiting for hours is an indication of how good a doctor is, then Dra. Gorospe is waaaaaay up in the greatness scale.

I didn't realize how long we've been at the waiting area until my butt began to ache. Mwahahahaha!

Whenever I accompany mom to Dra. Gorospe's clinic at St. Luke's, I bring a thick book (that's how the book pile by my bedside slowly disappear). And having a phone with a radio & WAP is a Godsend for long hours of waiting like this.

Honestly, I was tempted to tell mom that we should go, but her doctor isn't gonna come back until June 9, and she needs to see mom before she leaves, so that mom's treatment won't be interrupted. And when I see the doctor's patients who are very weak and who come from far places waiting with us and are not complaining, I feel ashamed. Coz here I am, in the pink of health and complaining. If they can do it, why can't I? Besides, I wnat my mom to get better, so whatever discomfort I feel, I just let it go. :)

But dang it! my bum feels sore. Hihihi!

friday na!!!

Friday, May 14, 2004

Boo-hoo! Di ko napanood yung premier ng Troy. Something came up, yoko na i-expound kasi baka maiyak ako ;). Sayang talaga, I was so looking forward to watching it. Shempre Brad Pitt movie yun, nandun pa si Orlando Bloom, eh di lalo na kasi libre ticket ko. Shuxx, talaga! Oh well... I can watch it some other time.

I had a haircut today. Finally got myself to do it. I've been thinking of getting a haircut for some time now, but I've been lazy and not so in the mood for it. My hair is short now. Okay yun, mainit pa din kasi, chaka parang gumaang yung ulo ko. hihihi! The only problem I see with this hair cut is when my naturally wavy hair acts up and I have a bad hair day. I wouldn't be able to tie my hair. Time to take out the straightening iron. Nyarks!

Hahaha! I forgot pa that I just brought some cute hair accessories. It would take a while before I can use it. Never mind, my hair grows fast anyway.

I'd post a pic of my new look soon (Wahaha! Kapal! :p). Chie is off to the Pahiyas Festival in Quezon, and she brought the digicam with her.

Wednesday, May 12, 2004

I was supposed to be on a date last night but I cancelled it Monday night. I cancelled not because I didn't like him, but because I didn't feel comfortable going out and having fun, while my mom was recovering from her chemotherapy. Mom said it was okay (not that I still needed to ask her permission if I could go out on a date or not), but I felt I wouldn't enjoy it coz my mind would be on how she was doing. And that would be unfair for my date. I decided to put my social life on hold until mom gets better (what social life? :p). It's okay really, I'd feel guilty if I was having fun while mom was sick. Besides if he really likes me or at least willing to get to know me more, he'd understand the situation. If he doesn't well, he's not worth it.

Tomorrow night though, I will watch the premier of Troy. Ngek! labo ko no? Ayaw da umalis, pero manonood? Justification ko dun, I'm not on a date. :P Just watching a movie with friends, which I hadn't done in a while. Ewan. This is what happens when I'm thinking too much. Hahaha!

Superstitions/Beliefs...
Wednesday, May 12, 2004

1. Do you consider yourself superstitous? to a certain extent, yes I think I am a bit superstitious
2. Have you ever experienced a supernatural event? Seeing ghosts is a supernatural event, right? So yup I have experienced that, about 3 times at a friend's house while we were finishing our thesis. We saw & felt a ghost of a Japanese soldier who was killed during WW2. katakot!
3. Have you ever stayed at a house you believe to be 'haunted'? If not, would you? We didn't know it was haunted, after all, it was a newly built building and at this day and age, it doesn't seem plausible. But we did experience creepy stuff when we were there, but they didn't harm us or anything, just scared the living daylights out of us. We had no choice but stay there coz we were finishing our thesis, the condo was near the university and was convenient for all of us.
4. Do you have any superstitous habits (eg. throwing a pinch of salt over your shoulder before eating)? knocking on wood, that's all i can remember right now
5. Do you have any good luck charms? when I was in school I wore my "lucky" shirt when I felt I needed it

hay... as usual di pa tapos ang canvassing of votes. malamang in 3 weeks or more pa malalaman kung sino nanalo. But I sincerely hope it won't be Panday. Our country needs to recover, not slump again.

hay nakoooo!!

As of lunch time, Pres. GMA is still leading FPJ. Sana, sana po talaga that would be the results.

Yesterday, I saw part of the Survivor All Stars Reunion show. I only saw part of it coz mom, dad & i went to Dr. Gorospe for mom's check-up (it was good, by the way). Even if I didn't watch the whole show, I already knew who was gonna win, coz while we were in traffic, i checke yahoo on my phone and it was on the headline. "Amber wins survivor, gains a fiance". SPOILER talaga! I didn't expect that it was gonna be there already when I checked. Di bale, I'm gonna watch the replay on Sunday.

No surprise really, I thought it was gonna be Rob or Amber, but i didn't expect Rob would propose to her. Dunno why, but I don't like Amber, even when she was in Survivor: Australian Outback. Ay naku, mashadong affected sa show. Hahahah!

I hope this week will be a good week for everyone :D

What would you do if...
Tuesday, May 11, 2004

1. You and your worst enemy of the opposite sex were the last people left on earth..?Make up then repopulate the earth. bwahahahahaha!
2. Your best friend needed you to lend them a helluva lot of money, but you weren't sure they could pay it back..? first of all, i think I would be the one asking my best friend to lend her money, but if ever she does, I'd lend her the money. Coz I know if it were me who needs help, she wouldn't hesitate.
3. You were trapped on a desert island with nothing but a ball of string and a penknife..? look for food and shelter first
4. Your boyfriend/girlfriend ran over your cat..? i don';t like cats, but if i did have a act and my boyfriend ran oevr it, i'd feel sad, but i know it was an accident, so i won't get too angry with him
5. Your boy/girlfriend and your best friend where both being attack by giant green monsters but you could only save one of them..? oh no, ang hirap naman! di ko alam... :p

ELECTION DAY

Monday, May 10, 2004

I woke up quite early today coz it's Election Day. Honestly, I didn't feel like going at first, but I realized if Fernando Poe, Jr. were to win, I'd be partly to blame, because I didn't exercise my right to vote. I tell you, the thought of FPJ winning had me scramble out of my bed. Hahaha!

We arrived at the polling place a little after 8 in the morning and I took only 5 minutes, coz I made a list of the people I'm voting for the night before.

I hope the people voted wisely, coz another 6 years with an actor for President makes me cringe. Yikes! That probably sounded discriminatory. I have nothing against actors in general. I, however, have issues against actors who run for office because they're popular. I honestly would have voted for FPJ if he explained his platform and I liked what his plans for the country are. But how can he expect me to vote for him if he doesn't talk about his platform and like helmet-head Eddie Gil (who was thankfully disqualified), answers questions with questions? Case in point: In a TV interview, he was asked by Vicky Morales what he thinks about the country's economy. He anwers, "Ewan ko, ano sa tingin mo?" (I don't know, what do you think??) Sheeesh.... Eto pa isa: On one of his television ads, he was asked, "Sir, ano ang gagawin nyo para sa bansa?" (Sir, what will you do for the country?) The panday answers, "Ano ang gagawin, natin? - emphasis on natin. (What will we do?). Nakupo!

God bless the Philippines, if he wins. Please... sana po hindi sha manalo!

Every election, I don't like having indelible ink on my index finger. So the moment I get home, I always wash my hands and try to take it out with alcohol. This time, however, I didn't have a hard time taking it out. The indelible ink is not indelible at all. Good news for me, bad news for the Commission on Elections, coz flying voters would take advantage of it.

As I am writing this, exit polls and quick count results show President Arroyo leading with a slight margin over FPJ. I hope that becomes the trend all throughout.

2. Is it healthy food? hahaha! I sincerely doubt it
3. Who prepared the food? I prepared the meal at home anf the House Burger was prepared by the Pancake House Staff. ;)
4. Did you finish it all or shared with someone? Mom ate some of the fries which went with the house burger, but II finished it all :p
5. Are you gonna have the same thing tomorrow? nope. too heavy on the tummy (hehehe.. probably because i ate too much)

Friends, my favorite sitcom of all time had it's last episode today. I couldn't wait for the ending to be shown here (coz the last season just started airing this month), so I bugged my friends from North America to tell me. Hehehe... Thank you Maus & Mylin!

I loved the ending. It was funny and I thought it was the right one. I'm not gonna spoil it for you (unless you want me to, so leave me your email address and i'll tell you how it goes - hehehe!). While Maus was telling me how the show went, it was so detailed that I could almost see it in my head. I was laughing at the situations they got into, mega-react talaga. Shuxxx! I am gonna miss The Gang & Central Perk.

I went to the official website and saw that the DVD of the 2 hour finale, with exclusives will be released in 5 days and it sells for $13.95. Haha! Grabeh. With all the hype, NBC is the biggest winner. $2 million for a thirty second commercial spot. Sheesh....

Monday morning, mom, my aunt Belle & I went to St. Luke's. Mom was admitted for her first chemotherapy session. Her chemo was supposed to start Tuesday morning but she needed to check in earlier for preparation. The session went well, and by that I mean it went smoothly.

We stayed in the hospital for 2 1/2 days and 2 nights. Knowing how easily I get bored, I packed quite a lot of stuff. Hehehe... I brought more things than my mom. It's my barkada trait - we're overpackers. :p Aside from clothes, my kikay stuff & my pillow, I brought 3 books, my diary (and 5 different colored pens), a deck of cards, my discman & my brother's watermelon design 24 cd-holder. O diba, feeling ko dun na ako titira.

I didn't get to read all 3 books, though I finally read The Alchemist. Yay!! And I got to listen to all the cds I brought. And I charged my phone 3 times coz I listened to the radio and checked my emails constantly (though when I got home after 3 days, my mailbox still had quite a number of emails). Hmmm... and I have a feeling I'll cringe when I see my cellphone bill. Nyarks!

Nagkaroon pa ako ng instant reunion sa hospital. We were surprised to learn that Lola Fracing's brother-in-law, who we visited at the ICU a few weeks ago was still there, but was now in a room two doors from where we were. And my friend Joanne, who I hadn't seen since College Graduation, was there, too. She's an E.R. doctor at St. Luke's, so I texted her to say that I was there, too. It turns out her baby boy Tye was confined for dehydration (kinda like my nephew, Gian). So we had our reunion at her baby's room on the 3rd floor. After our reunion, we vowed that the next time we see each other, it won't be at a hospital. :p We were actually supposed to meet for lunch a few weeks ago but it was postponed. Who ever thought it would push through at the hospital? haha!

Then I went to the office Monday after lunch. I was on the way back to St. Luke's when I was stuck in traffic, coz Ping Lacson was campaigning in Mandaluyong. He was going house to house. Syet! Lalo kitang hindi iboboto, antagal ko sa traffic, noh! Then when I was finally in Greenhills, yung convoy naman ni Erap on the way back to Tanay ang na-encounter ko. Haaay naku!

On Tuesday, mom's chemo session started at 9 am and ended around 5. It was good that she didn't feel discomfort during the session. She wasn't able to sleep well at night though, coz she said she might be missing her own bed and everyone at home. Wednesday morning, mom & I couldn't wait to go home. Aga namin nagising at nagpack. Hehehe... home sweet home, here we come ang motto namin that morning. :p

The effects of the chemo is already starting. I hope it won't be as hard as it was the previous sessions. All I could do is massage her when she's in pain. I hope it helps relieve her even a bit. Thanks talaga sa prayers. :)

Election na sa Monday. Pinagdadasal ko talaga di manalo ang bangungot ng bayan. I still don't have a list, that's how hard it is to choose from the candidates. I'm so tempted not to vote, but that would be a disservice. It's my right to vote, but geez.. with the line-ups, the only way to choose is to choose the lesser evil. I do hope the voters would think a gazillion times before voting. And I pray that the election would be peaceful and orderly. God Bless The Philippines.

I'm back, balakubak!

Wednesday, May 05, 2004

Hello! i'm back, balakubak! Na-miss ko ang blogging. Sobra!

Short entry lang muna. Mejo madami pang kelangang gawin: magligpit ng gamit, maglinis, magcheck ng sangkaterbang emails, at sleep. Kelangan makatulog ng mahimbing dahil for the next few days mejo kelangan mababaw ang tulog. Magsisimula na kasi yung side effects ng chemo. Momsie is okay :) fighter yun eh. Pero shempre, mahirap talaga.

Thanks for your prayers. Greatly appreciated po. :D

Hehehe.. may bigla akong naalala. We were on the way to the hospital last Monday and I was listening to the radio (shempre sa Get Up & Go Show ni Joe Schmoe, Alexxx & Lellie sa 99.5 RT), and I heard Joe mention something he saw over the net. He said Keanu Reeves & Alan Cummings got married. I was shocked! Then Schmoey said it was an April Fool's Day prank of JoBlow.com.

Hahaha! grabeh, paniwalang-paniwala ako. Gullible Jennie! Shempre, kinwento ko agad sa sister ko, pagkarinig ko. Shux! mali pala. Wahahaha!

Tapos, while waiting for our driver, Ricky, to pick us up from the lobby of St. Luke's Medical Center kanina, Imelda Marcos alighted from a heavily tinted Mercedes Benz, with a back-up Pajero (na may sticker ng Jinggoy for Senator - che!). Dun sha mismo bumaba sa harap ko. Shempre, asar ako sa kanya, di ako nagmove. Hahaha!

Ay naku, short entry daw :p ewan...

Toodles!

TIME FOR A POP CULTURE BREAK

Last night, I saw exclusive footages of the upcoming movie, TROY, starring Brad Pitt as Achilles, Orlando Bloom as Paris, Diane Kruger as Helen of Troy, and Eric Bana as Hector. I have been waiting for this film to come out since I learned that they were filming it.

As usual, Brad Pitt was muy guapito, hehehe... and his accent was to die for. :D Did I mention he wore a skirt? Well, technically it wasn't a skirt, but his warrior costume looked like he was wearing a short skirt. Hehehe! Doesn't really matter what it was, he looked good in it - shows off his muscles. :D

The battle scene between Eric Bana & Brad Pitt had to be postponed for a month, because Brad injured his Achilles tendon. Ironic, noh?

I saw the full trailer and the battle scenes were breathtaking (pero shempre mas breath-taking si Brad.. hay.... :p) It's gonna be shown on May 14 and if I'm not mistaken, it will be simultaneous with the US playdate. Note to self: WATCH IT!

Friends, one of my favorite TV shows of all time, is ending it's run next week. :'( I'm sad that it's ending, but since the show is a season late here, I wouldn't feel it's loss for a while.

It's hard to pick just one favorite character among the six coz I love them all. The characters have their own little quirks and they're funny in different ways. If someone would coerce me to choose a favorite it would have to be Matthew Perry's Chandler Bing and Matt Leblanc's Joey Tribbiani. I love Chandler's sarcastic wit and Joey's "naivete".

I am going to miss Central Perk and Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer), Monica Gellar-Bing (Courteney Cox-Arquette), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey & Chandler. I hope it will have a great ending, unlike Seinfeld, which I thought had a lot of hype but didn't live up to it.

I've followed Friends since I was in College. I used to tape every episode and my friend Eloi and I would watch it every Wednesday at home, after class. It didn't matter if we've watched that particular episode lots of times, we'd still watch it. hahaha! That's how much we love Friends. :)

Come to think of it, quite anumber of my favorite shows are snding this season. Sex and the City, Frasier, The Practice. I am going to miss SATC & Friends the most. :'(

When I watched Sex and the City it was already on it's second season. I thought I wouldn't like it then, boy was I ever wrong. It was a good thing one of the Japanese cable channels also have it on their line up. Since then I haven't missed an episode and yup, I still watch the reruns. Hahah! I hadn't seen the ending of SATC yet coz as usual, it's a season late here, but I've read about it and I like the ending. It was how I thought it should end. Happily for all four ladies. :)

I finished reading the Da Vinci Code last night. It was a great book. I think it needs a separate blog entry. Hahaha! Suffice to say I liked it so much I had to research on some of the things/ideas it tackled. Highly recommended!
