Upon its first scene, I thought it’s a historical romance/drama but upon seeing the white horse and it’s transparent and illuminating and invisible wings I have changed my point of view. I thought it would be as magical as some Disney fairy tale flicks have presented all these years…but I couldn’t quite get it. The story was loose, so loose that you would try to find the logic of everything so hard and lose all your logic. I got surprised twice or thrice maybe, first one was the flying horse, Russel Crowe’s monstrous transformation which reminded me of Grimm, and Will Smith’s uncredited appearance as Lucifer, scary! But I don’t like to be negative all the way, visually Winter’s Tale was stunning. The cinematography was breath-taking. The winter was wonderful to see especially from a person who doesn’t experience it. But what left me after watching the film were questions of how Peter Lake, played by Colin Farrel, became immortal. Maybe I didn’t quite hear the explanation, but nonetheless, it was quizzical.
One of the best books I have read because it created in me a new world that’s so disturbing and deceiving. And one of the books that kept me saying “I am that character!”. Had a good time and got only a short time to finish everything. Can’t wait for the movie next year!
One of the most awaited movies of the year, and yes it was worth the wait. Why? It’s like my every piece of imagination was made concrete. Though the movie was more cliffhanger than the book, I don’t know why? But it was satisfying. Jennifer Lawrence was just perfect for the role and yes 2 more Hunger Games with her will just be fine!
Some scenery in Eden Nature Park in Davao City
These and many more are some restrictions in Davao and the pet thing in Eden Nature Park, but I was totally wondering why that snake is included there. Also, smoking incurs P5,000-P10,000 fine.
It was such an enjoyable time to be with good journalists! I met these 3 celebrities at the 1st ComArts Media Awards. Leo Lastimosa never gave a dull moment during his talk on editorial writing, Jeff Canoy, a TV Patrol broadcaster, also gave good insights on TV broadcasting and of course Rico Lucena, one of the organizers of the program. Aside from meeting these people, exhilaration even revved up to the highest as unexpectedly Philippine Christian Gospel School’s paper Phos Alethia won Best Edited Magazine/Newsletter! And after hearing the school’s name announced we lost our consciousness for a second and our jaws dropped. But all these are for God’s glory!
This is taken in Gingoog, Misamis Oriental. It is a 2-way road, but unfortunately only 1 way was taken because there was a road construction. What they did was that all the vehicles have to wait and stop until all the vehicles on the other side pass, so really it’s like a STOP for 15-30 minutes so that every vehicle has a fair chance to use the road safely and properly.
Finally, after a year I have just finished reading the book. Of the 3 books, this third part lacks the curiosity of the first and the excitement of the second, yet it is the most dramatic. There are many scenes in which a paint of melancholy and death is very colorful. Tragic, but worthwhile as it begins a new chapter of the lives of Katniss, Peeta, and Gale and the rest of the survivors.
