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


We just celebrated Mother’s Day and it got me thinking about bouquets and their meanings. Right? The staple bouquets for romantic partners are usually Red Roses. But Why?

Do you know what the colors mean?

MOVIE REVIEW: The Bone Collector


Imagine your life in the hands of a quadriplegic ex-cop.

The-Bone-Collector-2-1280x720

IMDB: A quadriplegic ex-homicide detective and his partner try to track down a serial killer who is terrorizing New York City.

This all out gruesome murder stemmed from an opinion that was wrongfully accepted by an individual. But this same individual ended up being in prison, and in verbatim, human toilet – which caused him to despise our dear old genius Rhyme.

One thing I also noticed — is how technologically advanced they were back then. I did not expect a computer that can already understand human instructions and a bed / slash computer system that does everything for rhyme in just 1 button.

My husband actually caught on the perpetrator at the beginning in which I replied, Nahhh. But turns out, he was right! Haha.

Overall movie is good without the book comparison. I haven’t read it. But yes, yes. This may be an old film but it is worth watching! ❤

LEARN: Pere Lachaise Cemetery


Where are the famous buried? 

La Chaise

As you know, I recently finished the book Before Ever After and if you’ve read my Book Review, I also mentioned that there were a lot of pocket of information and Europe Exploration in the book. — And I happen to be curious about this specific cemetery in the book’s itinerary.

Pere Lachaise happens to be the largest cemetery in Paris measuring in 110 acres of land. It is not only famous for its size but people flock here because of the famous souls buried in this place. The Tour or the visit to Pere Lachaise is actually free but based from what I’ve read, there are a lot who are offering a walking tour. (like I said, largest and a lot of famous people)

Of the famous people are Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Peter and Heloise Abelard, Frederic Chopin and Moliere among others. Aside from these famous individuals, it is also home to about 300,000 to 1,000,000 bodies.

Now, I know. 😀 If you happen to be in Paris, will you be visiting Pere Lachaise? And who here has? Share your experience here. ❤
