MOVIE REVIEW: Crawl


Did you ever imagine your house full of Alligators? 

Crawl

I don’t know how to swim! How will I ever survive? Haha. BUT! BUT, I learned a new trick which I have yet to confirm! and that is, DON’T MOVE. As long as there are no vibrations or no movements, then they will swim past you. Is that true?

Anyway, there were a handful of DO NOT EVEN BREATHE moments and I may have screamed out of shock three times  but the movie was not really gut wrenching the whole time. It’s the type of family movie on a Friday Night gathered in one room eating popcorn or chips. ❤ But it’s also something I would play in the background while I’m doing something else. Overall, okay but not outstanding.

Have you seen this movie? How many times did you scream? 😛 

Let me know. 😀 and please subscribe to my blog. ❤ 

MOVIE REVIEW: Runaway Jury


Trials are too important to be left up to juries

RUNAWAY

First of all, I didn’t know that there’s a business operation based solely on the careful selection of a jury! Two opposing lawyers will battle it out in court proving that the defendant is innocent or that the defendant is guilty. But the mere study and cautious selection of the right type of jury can sway, make or break your case.

Two, have you seen Meet the Fockers? I cannot really picture him as a serious lawyer. 😛 Three, I salute Easter in the movie of how he can silently influence the other jurors. Four, the real action I think is not really inside the court room (as I would have wanted) but rather the silent manipulation happens outside.

Overall, the novel turned movie is okay.  Though it’s not something I would recommend or watch again.

Who of you has seen the movie? Did you like it?

THOUGHTS: The 6 Phones I’ve had in my life


Phones have a special place in our lives. Do you agree? It’s the first thing you look for when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you hold when you go to sleep. Don’t deny it! You can’t even leave the house without it. Sure, we can offer the excuse of for emergencies and the importance of communication these days.

But there’s an obsession already. Right? And I’m not being a hypocrite. I am also guilty of such. And since we have all the time in the world now, I decided to clean a particular drawer where all of my gadgets are. And here it is, A collection of all the phones that I’ve used and own throughout these years. 😛

I did not include the Siemens Phone that I used when I was in grade school. My dad usually lets me bring it to school for Emergency but it was never really mine. 😛

NOKIA 3530

My first ever phone. 😛 It was a semi gift during my grade school graduation. I can still remember how excited I was since it was one of the first few phones to have a color display. ❤ There was no camera but one of the things I loved most about this is how I can download different wallpapers to customize it. (Yes, as early as that, I knew I loved black – Thus my black casing.) This served me all throughout my 4 years in HS. Haha.

Nokia 1616-2

This was especially helpful when I was living a double life. 😛 A call and text function just to cater my confused lifestyle. Haha. I used this for a brief time when I was in college.

Sony Ericsson K800i

This is my College Phone. ❤ I love that it has a scroll in the middle. It’s what makes it unique and the flash saved me a couple of times when we were clubbing back then. 😛 Since this has a Photo Vid feature already, it’s small screen is a disadvantage.  And though it has a VGA Video Call already, I don’t think I ever used it. I was using this phone from College up until when I was working.

Blackberry 9700

The hype when I started working! Everyone was talking about BB Messenger. I think the advantage of Blackberry is it’s BB Hub where all of your emails, instant message and SMS are all in one push notification. I loved how there’s a certain professionalism status or symbol it gives by using a Blackberry.

Iphone 4S

The first phone I ever bought from my own pocket. ❤ and my second apple product next to my Itouch. I think this used to be my favorite phone. ❤ You all know how apple works. I love that it has so much storage, the quality of the image is great. I liked how compact and it easily fits in the palm of my hand. I used this when I was working already and the reason why I had to let this one go is because of the battery. :/

Samsung Note 5

The phone that made the switch worth it. ❤ I still like Apple of course. But the ease of use of Samsung especially that I am studying and working, is such a gem. I usually have to transfer downloaded files, edit power point and documents for school and with this phone, everything was seamless. I can edit right away and with the help of an OTG, everything was easy! Aside from that, the quality of the image under a Natural Light is perfect and doesn’t need any edits. ❤ I love love love this phone. Unfortunately, after 4 years of using it, I think the problem was battery too. :/

 

Currently, I am using a Samsung Galaxy A70. So far, I am loving my new phone. It may not be the latest model, but its features is also high quality. As you can see from the history of my phones, I don’t normally buy the latest or the highest model, I like to maximize the life of each one, or maybe just an excuse because I’m somehow (kuripot). 😛

 

What’s the best phone you’ve had so far? Are you an Apple fan or Samsung User? What was your first ever phone? Let me know! Leave some comments below. ❤ Hope you can like this post and Subscribe. ❤  

MOVIE REVIEW: Taking Lives


I’m carrying a baby whose father is a serial killer.

taking-lives-2004 (1)

IMDB: An FBI profiler is called in by French Canadian police to catch a serial killer who takes on the identity of each new victim.

In my opinion, both Jolie and Ethan did an amazing job in this movie. I am now picturing Ethan as this psycho gruesome killer every time I see his face or maybe until after I see another movie where he isn’t the bad guy. 😛 There’s this part which I wish to unsee – the one in the elevator. Eeekk. Now I know what every man sees in Angelina. She was definitely hot in this movie. ❤

And, BTW, hats off to that ending! I’m not going to spoil any further but I was stringed along. Must watch. ❤

BOOK REVIEW: Dear Heart, I Hate you by J. Sterling


You could meet a thousand people and they’d all mean nothing to you. But then you’d meet that one and they suddenly meant everything.

20200507_093739

GOODREADS: I didn’t plan on him. Or for him. Or anything that had to do with Cal Donovan from Boston. Meeting him had been a complete and utter surprise, taking me one hundred percent off guard. I met new people every single day in my line of work and none of them affected me.

This is going to be brutally honest. – I absolutely did not like the book! There was no depth. I am definitely not a fan of Insta-love and I obviously do not believe in such. Maybe that’s why I hated this. If you’re looking for a growth in character then maybe this one is for you, how two workaholics who did not believe in love suddenly fell in love.

But no. I don’t get it. There’s no build up. No twists. No major setback. It was just an on-going and continuous LDR where the plot is fairly predictable. I did not fell in love with ANY of the characters. I did not feel the love or longing from both Cal and Jules.

Nothing. No emotion.

  • When did making yourself a priority become such a horrible thing?
  • Those lips. They’ll be my ruin.
  • It was heartbreaking when you recognize that moment when pieces of your reality turned into memories.
  • I’m not even all the way in and you already feel like home.
  • Her beauty rivaled her brain. She was a double threat.
  • Who we loved wasn’t always a choice. Sometimes it was an irresistible pull, a gravitational force, something we couldn’t see or control that drew us toward one another.

I’m utterly disappointed. I saw how one of my favorite authors, Coho praised this book. And that is exactly the reason why I gave this book a chance but my oh my… I was wrong.

EVERYDAY: Quarantine Uniform


Good Morning, Everyone! ❤

We are all being asked to stay indoors and we are being wedged to a new normal. I’m not immune to anxiety because of the doubts and uncertainty, but if there’s one thing that makes me feel good? It’s putting on make-up! ❤

You may not actually it from the pictures, but I do. 😛 I have nowhere to go but in front of my laptop but it makes such a difference to how I feel.

As much as I want to wear what the hot girls are wearing in tiktok? Nah. The heat, the humidity and just the pure living hell weather that it is here in Manila justifies my quarantine uniform of super short shorts.

Try it! You’ll feel so much better. ❤

LEARN: Significance of Flower Colors
