Revisiting the “Express” train

Here’s a film that managed to stay with me, all these years, after I first saw it on a grainy YouTube copy: Please forget the weird voice-over. I kept expecting someone to hand the narrator an Academy Award for the melodramatic voice over, but I digress. I fell in love with this movie the first…

Sweet nothings (Day 09/ 09 January 2012/ Project 365)

It’s the little things that can make you smile. Don’t you just love it when–in the middle of an otherwise crappy day–something pops up to give smile to your face. For me it’s this sweet little cupcake which is so cute I am tempted to just put it in my table and just stare at…

Kyarameru Dreams (Day 03/ 03 January 2012/ Project 365)

Here’s my little pockets of happiness for today: Life at the Grindhouse is now officially hectic and stressful. I feel like I am doing five things at the same time. Here’s my little pockets of happiness. I love McDonald’s Caramel Sundae — it’s the cheap thing that makes an otherwise miserable day especially bearable. My…

The whole tooth…and my ego too.

I remember distinctly that I was complaining some few months back that I have nothing more to share with you guys. I have pretty much exhausted all my material. But sometimes, you got to hand it over to the Universe, you can’t really say that she’s not listening. (I figured out that the Universe is…

Life’s little blessings: Death of Superman + We Love Japan shirt

With so many stressful things happening at the same time, it’s easy to forget of life’s little blessings. After all, it’s always easy to say that we lack a lot in life when I reality, life has been very good to us. I was blessed to receive this “just-because” gift from my hubby last Thursday:…

Taking the thrill out of the (WALKING) dead

Zombies scare the shit out of me. I can’t see them on film without almost peeing in my panties. Maybe it’s the rotting flesh which exposes the brains and all the gooey red things we keep inside our bodies (brain, spleen, stomach and the intestines). Maybe it’s the fact greenish-black hue of their skin, the…

‘shroooooomed with Mushroom Burger

I really have to get out of this bedroom more–cos it seems I am indeed missing out. During the trip going to Tagaytay, the hubby and I hitched with “BF” and “GF”, one of our couple friends who pass time traveling and eating out. It was already 11AM and the length of travel is slowly…

“Hello, Tony — wanna shoot the breeze?”

Holden Caulfield once said, “what really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it, and shoot the breeze”. Well, right now after reading…

It’s me, the Ramen girl

What is your comfort food? For me, nothing beats the smell and taste of ramen noodles — hot, steaming bowl mixed with vegetable bits, beef, plus chewy noodles that are firm to the bite. Whoa, that is my idea of heaven. I have always been picky when it comes to food. Blame my mother with…

The song that made the day O.K.

This song was on full-repeat mode (in my head and in my screen) all through out the day: Influenced, no doubt by this super fab, super chica rendition from last Wednesday’s “Never Been Kissed” episode of Glee. I guess by now, the Gleeks have known the full 411 on Darren Criss, the super adorable guy…
