Free Shopping From BDO Rewards and Laking National Card

October 27, 2015
SM Marikina, Marcos Hiway, Kalumpang, Marikina City

When there's free, no matter what it is, as long as it won't sacrifice my needs/wants, I always grab it. This is the same reason why I was able to watched Heneral Luna for free, thanks to SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc.

Last night, I needed to buy something from National Bookstore and grocery store. The problem was, my allowance is not enough for anything. Good thing I already have points both in my BDO Rewards Card and Laking National Card so I used them for the first time. Happy to go shopping for free. Nakz, shopping daw oh, for one item, shopping agad? LOL!

I Maybe A Writer

October 14, 2015
Manila, Philippines

If I was a brainy, maybe I am a writer now. I'd like to write anything and everything. From vision to reality to past. Maybe not in the right sequence, but one thing is for sure, I wanna write it for personal interest and of course, for me to earn money. As far as I know J. K. Rowling is the most acknowledge successful writer in history as of this moment. Who would have thought that writing a children's book would gave her billions of dollars. A lot of money, isn't it? Definitely, there's money in writing. Once your book has been published, expect a revenue from it.

Composing a thought is very hard for me specially if there's spelling and grammar involve coz maybe I didn't pay attention during my English classes from my elementary up to my college days. I don't know, I find it very difficult to juggle with words, understanding them and pronouncing them.

I remember, due to frustrations of getting a job, supposed to be my first job, because nobody wants to hire me in accounting for the reason that I was a fresh graduate and no job experience, Heller, that's why I was looking a job to get experience. Duh! So I applied in several call centers. This time, they didn't hire me to be their agent simply because I didn't meet to their standards:
1. They can't hear me well. My voice is very low.
2. Poor pronunciation.
3. Too many pauses when talking (too many 'um...').
4. Wrong grammar.

So back to basic, I mean, back to finding job related to what I studied. I became a constant customer in a computer shop. I spent at least an hour everyday to check if somebody responded to my applications via email. When there's none, I have to stay just to consume the paid hour. Take note, because of this, I started writing a blog. The first comment I've got was to correct my grammar and spelling. Cool huh? That's why I said to myself, 'If I keep this blog thing, it should be a photo blog'. But then I learned that blogging can earn you money because google is willing to pay you if you activate their AdSense. Since I am up for money, I did activate it. The catch is, you need to have more page view to earn $. My friend told me that in order get more audience, I need to have at least 500 words. wow! That's a lot of words! Where to find them? LOL!

And by the way, why I am writing this in English if I can't speak English very well? Well, for the sake of writing and to be not limited only to my country and able to reach other countries who can understand English.

Heneral Luna [2015]

Cinema 12, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City

When making a movie review, you'll always think what happen and need to have your realization or even your enterpretation of the movie. That's the thing I don't like doing coz I don't know how to do it. I just went to a movie, to watched, picture picture then post it here.

After watching Heneral Luna, I tried to read some movie reviews from the professional movie reviewers. I kinda agree with Sergio Gabriel for being shame and pride being Filipino. Shame coz of the rampant crab mentality Filipino has. Pride coz despite the mistresses movies has been produced by big movie producers in the Country, there are others who's brave enough to come up with this. If its true that its going to be a trillogy, then I can't wait for the other 2 Philippine heroes to be seen on big screen soon. I heard the next is Gen. Gregorio del Pilar. Is it going to be Paulo Avelino (special participation in Heneral Luna as Gen. Gregorio del Pilar), I hope so.

I almost can't believe that it was a last full show. The long line for the movie was unbelievable, the fact that this was not on its first week, this was first shown to the public last September 9, 2015 and I could honestly say, I was surprised but then after the show, you would say, no wonder! It was a great movie experience. Not your tpyical movie you've always wanted but kinda refreshing movie you wanna watch.

What I like about this movie:

1. It's history
2. The actors, special mention to Archie Alemania
3. The sound effects (I caught myself shouting in surprised when the souldier has been shot at his nightwatch in his 'yosi time')

What I don't like about this movie:

1. It's history (yeah, I know, I mentioned it above)
2. The special effects (needs improvement)
