And yet ..

I had a few bites, okay maybe ten spoon fulls of this when we watched SATC2 last Saturday. I just can’t help it! It’s calling my name. I wouldn’t be able to stop if not for The Husband who was so “kind” to remind me that I’m about to finish the cake. I immediately gave it to him so I could stop eating. However, I could still smell and taste it, even now just by looking at the picture.
Anyway, the reason why I’m not allowed to eat sweets anymore is because upon last ultrasound, the bambina weighs 6.5 lbs. I’m on my 37th week now and doing what I can to eat healthy so the labor will be easy for the both of us. Wish us luck!
Here’s a photo of me and the girls btw.
We watched Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince last Sunday at Greenbelt 3, Makati. I made reservations online but we were running late that I had to climb three steps at a time just to claim our tickets. Luckily, they weren’t that strict so we still got our seats.
The movie was too long, too boring and too many scenes that you don’t really need. However, it’s exactly the same as its book counterpart, which in my opinion, you don’t really need to read except for two important facts:
1. Dumbledore dying, thanks to Professor Snape’s unbreakable vow with Malfoy’s mom.
2. The dark power of Horcrux and how the young Voldemort learned about it.
These two scenes, unlike the others who were obviously just fillers are very important for book 7 which I can’t wait to see and read again. Sandy, The Husband and our friend Z got really bored watching the movie and thought that Harry is getting weaker. Well, better wait for The Deathly Hallows then to see how powerful Harry can be. We are all just dying to see them fight back that I can’t help but feel sad that Sirius is dead. He would’ve been great in book 7. Think about the final scenes from Order of the Phoenix to know what I mean.
Sandy: The movie was boring! Night at the museum is better and more fun!
And that’s coming from someone who couldn’t wait to see Harry on the big screen again.
I’ve always wondered how different my life will be if I chose another career. Something fun and equally challenging, like fashion or beauty? I know someone who resigned from her job as a bank manager so she can pursue a career in hair and make up. She’s much happier now and although the pay isn’t as big because she just started, the rewards at the end of the day are much higher. If you have a passion for making people beautiful but don’t know where to begin, check out this list cosmotology schools and see if any is available near your place. The site also offers various articles like paying your way to school, which career in beauty is right for you, hottest trends and several beauty blogs that can help you improve your skill. There’s no such thing as being too old to change careers. It’s not everyday that you can tell yourself how happy you are that you love what you’re doing.
Go shopping! NOT. But I just came from a fab online store so that’s the first thing that came to my mind. But anyway, here’s my real to-dos:
Setup another savings account for credit card bills and other payments.
Contact an old colleague for a collaboration project.
Download a new driver for my laptop’s audio.
See if I can fix my internal microphone so I won’t have to use the headset anymore.
Buy a fitness DVD. About time I lose weight again.
Teach Sandy how to write S. Since she got addicted to drawing, she forgot how to write the S on her name properly. Not that I mind. She just gets frustrated whenever she sees that her S is backwards.
We’ve been watching this four times a day since Monday. After gratuading from The Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, the Goblet of Fire is now Sandy’s latest favorite. Whether she’s playing or lying down on the bed, Goblet of Fire needs to be turned on just in case she wants to see Harry.
I’m not complaining. In fact, I’m really glad that she wants to watch this as I’m getting tired of HP1 and 2 already. Although Sandy learned to cast her fave spell, “Expecto Patronum” from HP3 (The Prisoner of Azkaban), she’s not that crazy about it because of the dementors. Goblet of Fire is also one of my favorites, aside from Order of the Phoenix (book version not the movie, the movie didn’t meet my expectations). I like how Harry seem to be stronger and wiser here and the fact that Voldermort is back makes it exciting even more.
We really need to get a new tv mount soon so the TV can be moved easily. Do you know that she even likes to watch Harry (or Hi5) while she’s doing number 2 or taking a bath? Mind you, we’re not turning our TV into a babysitter because she loves asking questions nonstop while watching.
Sandy and I are into Disney movies lately. I’ve always enjoyed Disney movies when I was a kid especially the Princess stories that I wanted Sandy to experience them as well.
The Husband bought all these for her.
Little Mermaid used to be Sandy’s favorite but after seeing Sleeping Beauty, she now wanted to be like her. She loved the song “I love you… I walked with you once upon a dream“. Not sure about the lyrics but she always asks me to stand up, hold her hands so we can “waltz” while I sing.
Of course, my all time favorite is still Aladdin. I was about 12 years old when I saw it and had a huge crush on Aladdin. I wanted my future husband to look like him and guess what, I got my wish LOL. I highly encourage you to watch it. It’s not only romantic but it’s soooo hilarious! Robin Williams as the Genie is just awesome. I believe I watched the DVD 4x already ever since we bought it.
Hay, it feels good to get lost in fairy tales again.
I’ve been awake since 4AM not because I was thinking of something deep or life changing. I can’t sleep because I’ve been trying to remember who played Sandra Bullock’s husband on the movie, Premonition. Eli knows I love these kind of movies so he recommended that I watch this one. It was okay, not exactly mind blowing, but I enjoyed it. The thought of having to wake up one morning seeing your husband is dead and your daughter have hideous scars on her face then wake up the next morning and see that everything’s back to normal. I still don’t know who the actor was, can’t even remember his name. I won’t check google yet unless I can’t take it anymore. I HAVE to remember it on my own first.
Sherwin and I are always on the lookout for the next blockbuster hit. We always check movie websites to read about the latest box-office leaders including the most popular in the coming soon list. That is how I stumbled upon this bug movie starring Ashley Judd. It was actually the movie posters that caught my eye first. I’ve always loved psychological thrillers and the poster for the bug movie clearly suggests that something disturbing and mind-bending is about to happen. I like how the silhouette of another woman appears on Ashley Judd’s face.
The other one, however, reminds me of this movie that I saw when I was a kid about a bunch of bugs invading the planet earth. Well, it’s a bug movie after all.
From the web site, it says that it’s a story about a lonely waitress with a tragic past and constantly in fear of her abusive ex-husband. She then met and had a tentative romance with Peter; an eccentric war veteran who thinks the government performed experiments on him and implanted tiny bugs under his skin. To summarize, it’s about two lonely people who bond over their delusions. This movie is directed by William Friedkin who also directed The Exorcist. If you’ve seen that movie, you probably won’t be surprised to see similar unforgettable disturbing scenes. Watch the trailer here.
