mean girls

i saw this movie during my christmas vacation. the first time i saw it, that is. haha it really was a laugh trip! it has a lot of powerful messages for the viewers. it was just so odd with the, i dunno but it seemed exaggerated? well thats america for you. funny funny stuff. the actors/ess were really good. they played their parts perfectly. it takes a lot of discipline to pull of their gags with a straight face. really great stuff!

the themes of teenage sexuality were pretty good. that mother was pretty freaky. walks into daughter boinking "if you need anything like snacks or a condom, just let me know." WHAT THE HE#$?!?!?! and also the other sister learning to dance and flash her breasts on tv. unregulated media consumption. brilliant. just like this movie. oops. :D

the concept of a burn book is very interesting. makes you wonder what other people think of you. its a strange way of looking for testimonials right? :D

all in all, it was a great and funny movie. i'd like to see it again. and laugh at it all over again. the clique thing just gets so done to deth that its funny.

in retrospection

all right, realistically speaking, i'll trim down my list and see what i got for xmas.
6. house upgrades : scanner, dsl, oven, etc
5. iPOD video/psp/ps3
4. mac/or IBM laptop
3. a meaningful time with friends and family
1. a certain "you"

6. will come. but only dsl i guess, by january.
5. screw it i don't really want these...well the Ipod... hm... well WII XBOX... erm never mind. not really necessities.
4. this will come soon. i seriously want my own...
3. family CHECK! friends... half-check
1. no overnight success. but seriously dude, define the time.


i had a blast in cebu.

i've been eating like a king for 5 days now (despite my on and off stomach problem.) and i'm probably a bit heavier than i remember. weighing myself now. OMG. i'm still underweight. this has to change. my new year's resolution will be personal but here's one that's public. GAIN WEIGHT!!!

anyway, being with family has been a great big breath of fresh air for me. i really enjoyed my stay. seeing my family makes things so wonderful (i haven't seen them for more than 5 years i think). pictures to be posted eventually.

it was beautiful. i could really see that meals shared together bring families together. our banter and bonding came mostly from the dinner tables. i got to eat guama's hong ba again. hehe or lo ba, turns out it wasn't the one but still! the meat melts in your mouth... sigh... then auntie ingred's mango pandan and uncle newton's porkchops (which i didn't get to sample sniff...) the next time i'll be visiting, i'll have a special dish as well! seeing people eat with so much delight is amazing! remember the movie chocolat? when there was a chocolate themed dinner and the film showed you the characters partaking in their meal with heavenly smiles. yeah, we were like that. it was amazing. i wish i had gotten everyone on video!

this christmas would be the most memorable one i've ever had. this time, i really felt like i had a family outside of mom dad and atchi. it's just great to see and connect with my relatives. this christmas was fun, great fun!

there's a lot else i'd like to say about what i did and where i went, but i guess i'll keep my memories for myself. :D pictures to be uploaded in multiply soon!

random things about cebu :
1. it is so clean... (i'm not sure if this is about the failed asean summit but damn! check it out!)
2. it is relatively small (everyone knows everyone apparently, and ...small...)
3. koreans are taking over it. seriously, there's a korean everywhere! haha
4. the gay people aren't parlor gays. that or i haven't been around very much
5. it is very very beautiful. the people, the environment. the pace is a bit slower than that of manila's

nothing says "welcome home" like disappointment.

and that is to put a damper on my otherwise beautiful break. it sucks to be reminded of hassles and past misfortunes. i guess i had a real vacation this time, albeit for a short time only. i want a longer vacation. i'd like to forget all the bad, shitty times. i'd like to forget about my deals that have gone wrong, i'd like to forget about a lot of people.

sigh... to leave. to live. not very different. i want to leave.

i'm just seriously pissed off at missing to nstp insertions one after the other. missing a 20 point sa quiz because i was late and also not getting to pick my groupmates for the same subject.

tangina ano ba yan! ayusin mo nga buhay mo!

there's little left of the days to be spent on campus, i've 2 long tests and 2 papers and 1 report. i have to make the most of it.

Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...
