TCP Entry: Edward Scissorhands

Photo not mine thanks to IMDb
This week's theme for TCP is On Ice; the first movie that came into my mind was Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder's movie which is Edward Scissorhands. It was a movie about an Uncommon gentleman who fell in love with a teenage girl. The movie plot is simple yet very touching. It depicted that love goes beyond the physical appearance of the person. Although they did not have the chance to be together; in the latter part of the movie we can see Edward still doing ice sculpture of  Kim.

And Kim's unforgettable lines "You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it"

If you have not seen this movie yet, I suggest that you watch. More TCP entries, just click the badge.

TCP Entry: Dreamworks Movie

Thanks Wikipedia for the photo
There are so many Dreamworks movies to choose from; I love all of their animated films and I can't decide which one to choose. Honestly, I am not aware that "The Tuxedo" is a film by Dreamworks. Me and hubby are fanatics of Jackie Chan. We have seen this movie a couple of times but never grew tired of watching it.

The plot is simple, Jackie Chan (Jim) is a taxi driver known for his notorious speed driving was hired to become a personal driver of a wealthy man. He became a spy by accident when he wore the special spy tuxedo of his boss and was paired with a genius named Delilah played by Jennifer Love Hewitt. And the adventure begins.

It is a very light action film in which Jackie Chan is very famous. It gave us a good laugh especially when he was doing his dance moves.

Manic Monday

Ever since I started doing online work; I consider this day as probably the second most draining day (the first one happened last Wednesday..deadlines! argh!). I woke up a bit late because I slept late last night because I had to finish blog hopping and commenting. Although I am used to having a hectic schedule, this day is quite different. I feel like a drained battery (but here I am still doing my blog post). Being a VA no longer stand for Virtual Assistant- but Very Addict; I have tons of work from my other boss but I can't resist accepting other job assignments too. I could not easily say No to my boss (right Fedhz?); she tells me to give my other tasks to other people but I can't simply do that. I need to work. I want to work and I love to work. My braincells were not in use for a long time; and I can say that this time around, I have found what I love to do. I love to write and I will continue to write.

Saturday Sightings: Bugs Life

For this week entry, I didn't have to go outside the house to capture the best sightings. I was looking at my youngest son's (Jeon) drawing book; and to my surprise this is what I saw:

Bugs Life by Jeon Pangilinan
I have seen how my son's drawing skills developed from simple doodles into stick figures. But I was really surprised when I saw this drawing. "Bugs Life" is his recent favorite movie; he saw this movie the nth time but never grew tired of watching it. He was even able to memorize some of the movie lines.

TCP Entry: Notting Hill

photo not mine thanks to Google.

For my TCP entry for this week is about this movie "Notting Hill". Can the famous film star in the world fall for just an ordinary guy?, Yes, because when it comes to love whatever your status in life when you fall in love, you would do anything and fight for it whatever it takes.

In this movie Hugh Grant is just a ordinary guy he's a owner of a bookstore while Julia Roberts is a film star. They met accidentally in the bookstore and eventually developed their friendship into a romantic relationship. This movie is romantic comedy and it showed how it is to fall in love.

It does not matter whatever people say about your relationship when you really love the person you will risk everything like Julia did; even it will change your life just to be with him or her. Love is like a cigarette it harms you with warning and before you know it, you cannot just simply remove it from your system.
Love is a sacrifice and it could be a big sacrifice for some people.

Simple Anniversary Celebration

Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last 5th of November. Nothing fancy prepared, a simple anniversary dinner with the kids is what he had. It's fun to see the kids enjoy their favorite meal. Afterwards, we went to coffee shop (again with the kids) to relax. I had my favorite black forest frappe and the kids that their choco frappe too.

Choco Acad Frappe (no coffee added)

Hubby ordered a slice of "Sinful Cake" for him (of course he shared it with me!)

Indeed very Sinful!
 It was a simple yet meaningful celebration, and both of us are looking forward for more anniversaries to celebrate.

TCP Entry: Schindler's List

photo courtesy of Wikipedia

For my TCP entry for this week's theme which is Steven Spielberg movies, I chose Schindler's List. It  is one of my all-time favorite film. The movie is about Oskar Schindler, a business man during the time of Holocaust and was able to save thousands of lives. The genius behind this controversial movie is no other than Steven Spielberg. What I like about this movie are the symbolism of things. The movie was done in black-and-white; except for the little girl wearing the red coat. According to Spielberg, the little girl in red coat represents those powerful countries during that time (America, Russia and England) who knew about the Holocaust yet chose not to do anything about it.

Watching this film made me realize how lucky I am to be living in this era; wherein freedom is given to every individual. Soon I would encourage my kids to see this film, to give them a glimpse or idea of how difficult it was to live during those times.

If you are a Steven Spielberg fanatic, you may want to check out other TCP entries for this week.

Changes In My Life

The most important change in my life took place almost 6 years ago; that was January 1st. It was a tough decision to make because that was the time I decided to end my marriage with my ex-husband. I have to choose between staying with him and give my two sons a "complete" family ; or dump him like a hot potato but my sons would have to deal with the society's stigma of broken home. I chose the latter, and I am definitely glad to do it.

I think my kids would live a more normal life if they do not see violence at home. I had to admit that there were instances wherein discussions with my ex would turn out violently. Too bad my kids were witnesses to that situation. I cannot blame my sons for hating their father. My kids are smart, I don't need to brainwash them (because I was accused of doing it). For the past 6 years no financial support was given to my children. I know they have the rights to get financial support from their father; but I would rather not do it because I can work to death just to provide for my children.

I believe that God saw my suffering, and He gave me a partner. We have been together for 5 years now, and blessed with a child (another boy). Our son is four years old, and as far as my entire family could see my current partner treat my kids from previous marriage the same way he treats our own son. He works hard for them and dream about giving them a bright future.

I am so glad that God gave me another chance to be happy. Sometimes we really need to experience deep pain in our lives in order to appreciate the simple joys that we have.

Flowers On Saturday #01

This is my first time to join the Flowers on Saturday. This photo was taken by my youngest son Jeon, who was only 3 years old when he took this shot. It was during our visit at my MIL's place in Subic, Zambales.

Jeon shot this photo

It was kinda amazing to see a three-year old child be able to shoot such wonderful photo, and Jeon was only using our camera phone. I have more of his photos in the coming Saturdays.

Happy Together

This video was done a year ago, i am still proud to say that we are still "Happy Together"

My hubby and I have been living together for almost six years; but we only decided to take our vows of commitment two years ago. Today is our second wedding anniversary, nothing fancy prepared for the day. We believe that it does not need a special occasion to go out on a date. Although we have plans of going out for dinner later tonight (of course, it's with the kids).

For those people who really knew us, they can say that our relationship has been through a lot of trials and challenges (most especially for my part). Since the foundation of this relationship is God, I don't think there is anything that we cannot conquer. Many marriages failed nowadays (I should know, I've been through it before), but if you truly love your partner then there is no reason why marriage won't work.

It's hard to maintain good marriage, but if you know how to communicate with each other then it would be easier for both of you. Lately I have developed that skill of telling hubby what bothers me; and it feels good. Things are easily resolved if you open the communication line with your partner. When the other person speak, learn how to listen on what is the real message. Women would often need assurance and security; but take note that men needs it too they are not just vocal about it.

Of course, intimacy is important to keep the flame from burning. In our culture, women are submissive when it comes to this matter. But I think that is definitely wrong, sex is another way of communicating with your partner. It would be okay to tell your husband what you want and what you don't want. Then learn to compromise.

I am no expert when it comes to marriage, I had a failed marriage before this but I am glad to have found the one who understands my crazy whims, mood swings and lame reasoning. I thank God for giving me the right person, it's been two years now and we are still counting.

TCP Entry: Paranormal Activity

This is my third TCP Entry (#1 Robbin Williams movie; #2 Food theme movies) and I am glad to share with you my favorite horror flick. I am not really a fan of scary movies, but I was curious about this film that's why I watched this film over the internet. The story is about a couple who experienced paranormal activities at home. I am not really sure whether these are really raw footages of what transpired in their lives. It was scary because each day of their lives the climax of the event builds up; until they came to a point wherein death happen to one of the couple (I think it was the guy). Such tragic story for a happy couple who are trying to live normal lives. The girl ended in an asylum after the guy was killed.

Now, the movie Paranormal Activity 2 is being shown in theaters. I would like to watch it too; in order to see which one is better. For more TCP entries, click here.
