"Comet" Movie Review

Disclaimer: This review will NOT contain any spoilers. Don't worry to those who have yet to see it. :)

Being a writer, I truly appreciate the effort being put on well-written scripts. It is a LOT of hard work and I love it how the writer can express himself in a way that the people can relate to it immediately. You need that attention getting remark! This movie is like that. The writer/director wrote it to be very appealing and you'll get hooked. The actors in the movie, Dell (Justin Long) and Kimberly (Emmy Rossum), gave their best performances to date. I never thought I'd say it but they delivered the story that as if it it is their own love/hate story to tell.

Too early to blog.

I haven't slept well in the past months.. A lot of things are going on in my life now that somehow my brain can't seem to process all of those things at once. It must be the stress talking or the meds I'm taking but as much as I want to, I really can't sleep.

I don't have a bad case of insomnia or I probably have been thinking a lot. What I usually do, I read my Kindle (thanks to my best friend who loaded her library of great books to mine) or I browse online looking for items to buy (which in reality I don't actually buy, I just browse, browse and browse then I wonder when can I buy such things). Then after a few hours, I usually get sleepy. 

Now, it is past five in the morning (still up although I have slept for about two hours prior) and I'm writing just about nothing. Keeping my brain busy which I should just be still sleeping. Or better yet, I could just jet off someplace and use this "can't sleep" dilemma to good use. Where to go now?

Last night my husband and I were talking about what is happening to the world nowadays. Terrorist attacks are everywhere, bombing and senseless killings are almost always in the news around the world. As a mother, I really worry that my son is in this chaotic world. I worry about everything that could cause him harm. 

Then as I arrived in Manila today after our family holiday, my brother told me yet another shocking and heart-wrenching news about an attack in Paris. He told me that four (4) famed cartoonist from Charlie Hebdo were killed because they used the power of the pen (expressing their thoughts through any form of media, in their case, they drew cartoons that depicted Mohammed in various images.), which drew a bad attention from some of our Muslim brothers.  

It really breaks my heart that these terrorists use Islam as an excuse to hurt and kill people who they think has caused them harm. I have good friends who are Muslims and have distant relatives who are Muslims as well but they use their faith into good use. Like most Muslims, they don't agree to such terrorist attacks. 

tRAINing Day

On L:
Shirt: Disney (Mickey Mouse)
Pants: Baby GAP
Shoes: VANS (Star Wars Limited Edition)

On ME:
Top: J. Crew
Pants: Uniqlo
Shoes: Nike Trainers

It has been raining hard for the past couple of days and now that it is a Monday, we "immortals" (the workforce people) need to be up and about and be ready for work despite the bad weather. Hahaha

So for today's WE Style, I opted to wear a dark blue sweater and paired it with my staple black skinny jeans, this is to make it work appropriate. Also, wearing dark colored clothes hides any water marks that is caused by the rain. I wore my favorite Nike trainers too to avoid any injuries from slipping or getting my feet wet by water puddles. I can't help but splash into the water puddles while carrying the little man. It is fun!! He gives the best giggles after.. Hahaha

Who HUE?

I have loved wearing hues [white/black/gray] (the definition of a hue refers to a pure color—one without tint or shade(added white or black pigment, respectively.) waaaay before everyone in Manila noticed that it looks good on anyone and everything. It has been a staple uniform of mine, it even got me a lot of evil eyes before for repeating the same color of shirt over and over but now.. Oh my! Every corner in the country you can see flocks of men and women appreciating the simple things like a white/black/gray plain shirt. Hahaha

Happy 2nd Birthday Little Man!

There is a saying that goes, "Time flies when you're having fun", I can say that I had the grandest time of my life when I became a "Nanay" to our little man Liam Garrett last September 8, 2012. It was at 6:33 in the morning that beautiful Saturday, when I first heard the little man's first cry that gave me goosebumps and tears to my eyes. It was priceless!!!

It is the best feeling in the world to be able to love someone so much that you just want to give all the best in the world to him. I guess most parents would agree with me, that you really become selfless when your child/children are involved. You open your heart so big to them that you just want to protect them, take good care of them and give them the best that life has to offer or even more. 

Afternoon thoughts...

During the not so busy times at work, we opt to eat our usual snacks or merienda or surf the net and check our social networking sites because we are those kind of people who are a FOMO (have a Fear Of Missing Out on the latest news about everything and anything under the sun) or it has just been a habit of ours.

WQ: Latest Beauty Discovery (3 of 3)

For the last part of this latest beauty discovery series, I saved the best for last because this post will benefit those who are looking for an organic alternative to your reliable deodorant and to all those ladies and gents who are looking for an excellent waterproof brow gel that you can actually swim wearing it and still have your gorgeous eyebrows after soaking in the water. 

1. Zenutrients Cooling Tea Tree Deodorant Spray Lotion

Don't panic it is organic! That is what I love about this product because it is all natural and you won't be afraid that chemicals are penetrating your sweat glands in your underarms. This unique product is great in keeping you smelling fresh all day and it also avoids sweaty underarms too.

Horsing around…(work & play)

I have been bringing the little man to work because we don't have a yaya or helper (we don't plan to get one either at the moment…hard to trust somebody you don't know with your kids life) and since L is still breastfeeding it is more convenient appropriate that he tags along with me. It is a dreamy situation and it may look not that challenging to some, but it is really a lot of work since there are a lot of factors to consider.  

Besides the usual office work and the deadlines to meet, bringing a child to work is most often than not rewarding because you get to hug and kiss the bundle of joy when you are stressed out but also it can be a little daunting when the little man has tantrums or the occasional cry fest. Talk about making a scene. Haaay. 

Ogalala: System in PLAY

Ogalala: System in Play

Several bloggers including yours truly were invited to the Ogalala Event which was held at the Richwell Building in Quezon City.

Parents and some kids listening intently during the presentation

We arrived at 10am and there were a good number of early birds like us too. They arranged the place like it was a play school and the kids had a great time. While the kids were playing, the parents on the other hand-- learned a lot about Ogalala and how it could make teaching your child progressively at home through play.
