The Flintstones @ 50!


When I open Google today, I saw the picture above as their commemorative logo for the 50th anniversary of The Flintstones. The Flintstones is an animated television series that started September 30 1960 produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. My kids and I still sometimes watch The Flintstones on TV and we still laugh at the antics of the Flintstones family and their Dino. We also watched the 2 Flintstones movie, The Flintstones (1994) and Viva Rock Vegas (2000). Well, who would have thought that Fred, Wilma and their family and friends in stone age era will continue to bring laughter in the computer age. Happy 50th anniversary The Flintstones!

An Inverted Philippine Flag


I was quite surprised when I read the news about the display inverted of the Philippine flag during the visit of Pres. Noy Aquino in America for the south-east leaders meeting in New York. As seen on the picture above, the Philippine flag at the back of Pres. Noy has red part on top instead of the blue. When the flag has the red on top, it means that the country is at war. The U.S. has apologized for this and stated that it was an honest mistake, and the Philippine government has accepted the apology.

I remember when I was in high school and part of the Girl Scout of the Philippines, I was sometimes tasked to raise the flag during the morning flag raising ceremony. I always told myself never to raise an inverted flag and I never failed to do so.

With the inverted Philippine flag incident, I am quite disappointed as I know that if this happened to other big country, it will be a different issue. I think the Philippines is too small to complain, or is it just our trait to accept apology immediately? How about educating the person in-charge of displaying the flag, that flags are to be respected and not only to be displayed at any way they could. Well, what can I say, "an honest mistake"?

Well Done, Charice!


I just like to say my congratulations to Charice. Well done on the premier of Glee 2, Charice! I've watched the first episode and I can definitely say that Charice is cut out for Glee. I just hope that her character will blossom in the next episodes and that viewers will love Sunshine Corazon so that Charice will get the chance to be in the regular cast. Right now, after the first episode of Glee season 2, Charice is trending in twitter and search engines.

I can say that with the support of her kababayans, all Asians, and all fans around the world, Charice's stint in Glee is the start of her dream come true. I admire her for being humble, thanking all the people around her and God (I'm a follower of her in twitter, that's why I know lol). Good luck Charice!

The Tourist, Coming Out Now!


I have just watched the newly released trailer of The Tourist, where Angelina Jolie teamed up for the first time with Johnny Depp. I like Angelina Jolie in this movie as I think she is kinda cute with her British accent ;p and Johnny Depp in his usual unique style, is Frank, an American brokenhearted tourist who is visiting Italy as he crosses path with Angelina, who is playing as Elise. After Frank met Elise, his life has never been the same.

Angelina looks so beautiful, stunning, and "ravenous" (Johnny Depp said that hehehe...) in this movie. This will be released on December in theaters. Dare not to miss it! Watch the Tourist trailer here:

Couch Potato with Sunshine Cleaning


Last night, after dinner my family and I did the usual thing we do, that is being couch potato in front of the TV! I brought out the CD I rented, this time I grabbed "Sunshine Cleaning". I really did not have idea what the movie was about but I took it anyways. My sons and husband were not interested so they went out. Anyways, after watching the movie, I say that if you are looking for some dose of life drama, comedy, and good-deeds act, then I definitely recommend Sunshine Cleaning.

Sunshine Cleaning was released last 2008 with Amy Adams as Rose Lorkowski, Emily Blunt as Norah, her sister, Jason Spaveck as Oscar, Rose's son, and Academy Award winner Alan Larkin as Joe, Rose's and Norah's father.

Rose, a former high school cheerleading captain, is a single mother who works a maid. After getting fired from her job, and her son kicked out from public school, she took the advice of her married police lover to start a cleaning business for crime scene. With her unstable sister, Sunshine Cleaning was born. As their business proceeds, they encounter life changing experiences that tested their family relationships, life meanings, as they try to make their lives better and touches other people's lives as well.

Here's the trailer of Sunshine Cleaning. You may want to watch the movie too. ;-)

Guest Post: To Accept or Not?


I have received several offers from bloggers and writers [like me :p] to guest post in my blogs. At first I was confused whether to accept the offer since there are more pros than cons of having guest post, but in the end I decided not to accept it. 

Until now, I am receiving offers however, I am firm on my decision though sometimes I am tempted to break it. One good thing of having guest writers is that you don't need to write always, so you'll have spare time to spend in other things. Aside from that, guest writers can provide new topics and writing styles that can attract new readers.Nevertheless, I still opt to have my blogs on my own. My blogs are my personal instruments on sharing my experiences and opinions. Although I can say that I am not really a talented writer, I know that I have my own writing style (which I do not know really hehehe...). I can also say that I do not have lots of loyal readers, but I want to establish to my few ones that it is me, my thoughts, my feelings, and my experiences that they are reading; that when they read my posts, my dear readers will be able to relate to me as these are real-life experiences. Well, this is just me.

I know that there are lots of bloggers out there who accept guest posts, and I say that you should, as I've said earlier, the pros of having guest posts are more than cons. However, if you are to accept guest post, make sure to set clear guest post guidelines. Till then... happy blogging! :-)

Charice on Glee Season 2 Preview!

(Photo taken from Glee's Promo Video)

The video of Glee's season 2 preview was out for several days, but I was quite not reading the news for the past few days so when I checked out on what's happening on the entertainment world, I got excited to watch the Glee's Season 2 preview with Charice on it. In the snippet of the preview, Charice and Leah Michele sing in the bathroom as if a showdown and then Sue enters to stop the cat fight. Charice plays as Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student that will be a competition for Rachel (Leah Michele).

I can't wait to watch the new season; just feel very excited seeing Charice in Glee.

Watch Charice in the video below. Enjoy!
