My Birthday

Hey guys, last year, I decided to do something meaningful each year for my birthday.  Last year, with the help of many friends, I was able to raise funds for Charity: Water.  The money has already been sent to Ethiopia and is being used for their water projects there.

This year, I’m raising funds for the Cancer Warriors Foundation. I would like to humbly request for donations from my friends and family. Please help me help them.

 

Info from Cancer Warriors:

Every 3 hours, ONE Filipino child dies of cancer.

They die not because they are too weak to fight the disease…

NOT because their parents were negligent…

NOT even because the doctors were incompetent…

They die because they are POOR.

They die because they cannot afford the high cost of medicines and treatment.

In developed countries, survival rates for childhood cancer can be as high as 80%. In the Philippines, survival rate is at 30%.

 

Kids should not fight cancer alone.

I want to help them fight the fight of their lives. Please join me!

You can send your donations to  in person.  I’ll arrange something.  Or if you have a Paypal account, just click here:

 

I will also post the details of direct donations to CWF soon.

Thank you!

The TV Shows I Follow

I watch A LOT of shows. But I’ve never really counted them, and I was inspired to count when a friend mentioned that he follows 30 shows.  So, let’s do this…

My Jujucleanse Experience

Level 2 Jujucleanse

I found out about Juju Cleanse because of a tweet, and I immediately checked out their website.  I researched a bit, and decided that I would try a 1 day cleanse during a long weekend.  I wanted a do it on a long weekend so that I will have a couple of days to recover, if necessary.  I wasn’t sure how the cleanse will affect.  And so the Holy Week was the perfect time for it.

The Hunger Games

As a fan of the series, especially the first book which for me is the best of the three, I was absolutely happy with the movie. It was (almost) perfect. I am absolutely amazed that they were able to come up with a QUALITY movie, one that you can really be proud of. It feels like this will easily be a classic.

Wrath of the Titans

First of all, if you get dizzy easily, do NOT watch this on IMAX 3D. I had to close my eyes in many scenes because it was too much!

Mirror, Mirror

The movie was surprisingly ENTERTAINING! I did not expect that at all. It’s a comedy, and the whole theater laughed loudly at several scenes. It’s campy and exaggerated and if you accept that, you will enjoy! It’s funny! And then there were a couple of touching scenes, I actually teared up (yeah I’m a sucker and a crybaby).

Safe House

Mixed feelings about the movie.

On one hand, it’s a pretty good action movie, which went up a few notches with Denzel’s acting. He’s just so damn good! Such a brilliant actor, still going at it even if it’s “only” an action movie. A serious Ryan Reynolds is also great to watch, especially for fans. Of course they made sure they had a couple of topless shots – typical – but it didn’t hurt because the scenes did not look forced at all. The setting, South Africa, was a good choice because of the color and the grit, which probably explained the chosen approach of the director.

Hugo

I thought that the movie was a bit dragging during some parts but I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was, so for me, it was forgiveable. I love the setting – it showed how Hugo, though still a child, kept everything going in his own way. It reinforced that he was a good clockmaker, who keeps things going, and fixes broken things. And boy, did he “fix” George Melies, a broken man, who wanted to leave his past behind.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ is an extremely HEAVY movie. Seriously. I haven’t watched a hardcore drama movie like that in a long time. It’s something that I think we all need, once in a while. We need to take a break from all the romantic comedies, comedies, fantasies, and action movies.

Back!

Back with a new blog design!  I chose this theme because I am used to shorter posts now, because of social media.  Let’s see if this will inspire me to blog more.  Maybe it’s time to join Writers Block Philippines for a session too!
