CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS (movie)

I just watched this awesome movie and it makes me feel so much mixed emotions. Firstly I feel inspired with Flint’s passion to make a change to the world. I mean I have that kind of dream too, and watching him being laughed by other people, almost invisible and failed so many times makes me feel there’s hope for me. I feel like I can do it too. Plus how the Father portrays love to him makes me feel like crying but I just tried to so hard not to. There was a scene where Flint gets mad to his Father because he feels like he can please everybody else except his Father who feels like a disaster will come out of his latest invention. Although in the end, when everything was fine, his Father told Flint how much he’s proud of being a Father for such an extraordinary person. I just wished my parents will be proud of me too for being extraordinary, I just have one problem though, I have to be extraordinary. The love story between Sam and Flint is just so sweet with such comedy that will let you remember your first kiss that sometimes results to a disaster. Oh the memories… 

Anyway guys, try to watch the movie if you haven’t watched it yet. It’s just a must watch! The movie is actually based on a book written by Judi Barrett and drawn by Ron Barrett, it’s a shame that I just discovered this now. I should have saw it a long time ago. I’m just crazy about the story with all the humor, love, and wit in it.

Have received another package! I’m really loving snail mail now. Thank you Cee for my birthday gift, it’s not too late though. It would never be. The wait is so worth it. And again, it really made my day. I knew this snail mail hobby will have a long way to go. Will write back by tomorrow. Will have to do something creative in return. >_< 

I have been snail mailing for two months now and I have realized that although the communication is very slow, I believe that there’s this connection already between two people who are so far away from each other. And this is the old fashioned way, so there’s the thrill and all that. :)

I love this day!

Let me talk about our Vacation. (This is going to be a long post)

I should say BLAST!

Actually before we start the trip, Mac and I have some small fights over and over again and it’s kinda exhausting, so I told myself this trip will either break us or make us. 

1st day: waking up early, taking the bus to the airport since train was not yet available, upon arrival at the airport we found out that our ticket does not include luggage so we have to pay additional amount. Everything went smoothly after that. We ate breakfast inside the airport, as usual like our trip to Cebu, we ate ramen!

On the plane, I was just asleep cause I only have short hours of sleep due to rush packing the night before. Upon arrival in Manila, we ate at Manhattan meat lovers at yellow cab.

And then on the plane from Manila to Iloilo I fell asleep once again. When I woke up, we were arguing again due to some reason that I can’t remember. When we went out, we meet his Aunt who is really a warm person, although she keeps on entertaining us by telling us lots and lots of stories, just imagine 2- 3 hrs drive to Capiz with all her stories. I just felt like I’m on the right place. But that is just the start. We passed by Gaizano Mall and we ate at Mang Inasal, see? It’s a constant food trip! Haha! 

We arrived at their house (which is located in the fields) around 6 pm. It’s kinda scary for me though, since I am used to the city life, lights are not that bright, it’s kinda dimmed, it’s also so quiet compared to what my life in the city used to be. I keep on telling myself to relax, that nothing wrong will happen, that I’m safe here. What actually scares me is that according to rumors, Capiz is a province where Aswang (monsters) live. I knew I’m old enough for that folklore but I can’t help it! I can hear every little sound, it’s just ugh, weird. We went to bed at 8:30 pm but I fell asleep at 12 am. Then just when I thought I would wake up in the morning, damn it, it was still 2 pm when I woke up. It was like WTH for me, I don’t know how I managed to go to sleep again but when I did, I woke up at 4 something am. Then I cried again, and begged to Mac to watch me sleep which he agreed, lucky me. The next thing I knew it’s morning, thank God. 

I suggested that we better stay in a hotel in the city nearby but he told me that it will just make things worse, first it will be embarrassing to his Aunt and secondly we will take the bus to Boracay the next day and staying in a hotel in the city will just delay us. 

2nd day: We meet his sister, Liezl at the Gaizano Mall in Roxas City and then we went to the bay where there are a lot of restaurant serving sea foods and you will have to eat beside the beach which was very refreshing. Best thing is we ate in our bare hands that made our food taste better.

We walked along the bay afterwards where we have some picture taking. Upon going home, we passed by a big statue like the one in Brazil. The view is just breathtaking. A lot of greens made me feel better after that sleepless night.

We also passed by Gugma (love in bisaya) beach since it’s just 20 minutes away from their house. It seemed like it’s going to rain so we just spent less than 20 minutes, we just took pictures and savor the beach, I don’t think that beach is ideal for swimming for me though. We also found this! A small crab.

That night there was a black out, so we have to fan ourselves, Mac offered to fan me just for me to sleep. In thirty minutes electricity resumed and we managed to sleep, finally. This time I just woke up one time, and then I didn’t cry anymore! Oh yeah! Way to go Cindy!

To be continued…

Watch out for part 2 for our Boracay stay! :D

Some people doesn’t need to have amnesia to forget all the love that they had. Sometimes, people just do forget because they chose to. Maybe they got tired of the same old routine, thinking that the grass is greener on the other side.

There’s the person who fall out of love and the person who love you all these years. The person who stayed and the person who left.

GIVE AWAY!!!

I have decided to compile some of the quotations/ sayings/ essays/ diaries from my blog and then I put them here. And since next month is my birthday month, I decided to give away five of these. Well of course if you’re the kind of girl who likes cute stuffs and likes to read, please send your tumblr link to my email address: cindy_198922@yahoo.com.ph with your full name, address and a reason why you should have this. This is hand made by me, and it’s a very limited edition. You don’t have to be a follower. Deadline will be October 1. 

There’s a coming music festival here in Hong Kong and tickets are free!!! You just have to register online and poof, in just a couple of minutes, you’re printing your ticket which you have to bring at the event. Big thanks for my friend Jessie for the information. Have brought Mac tickets as well, so I hope this will be a date for both of us. It will be on 10/ 11 Dec from 12- 10 pm.

Good morning everyone. It’s already morning here in hong kong but I’m still wide awake. I’ve been practicing editing pictures here in my galaxy note which I have brought last saturday. I guess this is now my christmas gift for my self. I really feel proud this is the first time that I have brought a phone for myself that is this expensive and special. I know this is going to be very useful for my daily life.

Let me tell you what happened today. I feel very productive. Aside from work I have been busy with Mac when i get home and then my parents come to my house for some delicious dinner which i have cook. I was also busy with cleaning, haha! I have never been so inspired with cleaning all my life. I just cleaned some part of the kitchen. And i also have made a collage with my family’s picture. I will post the pic later on, i have also tried editing like the one in the commercials of galaxy note. It just fascinates me so much.

This afternoon also i have dropped some special mails/ packages for my penpals. I hope they will receive it on or before christmas. :)

Just brought new DVDs. Since I’m a huge fan of Audrey Tatou and I’m actually collecting her movies, I brought my 3rd DVD entitled Ensemble, c’est tout (Hunting and gathering). We’re going to watch this movie for our movie night (mainly composed of my office mates: Jessie, Mercy and Ate Carla). We’ve watched horror before, although Insidious is a great movie, I found myself hard to sleep that night. At least this movie for sure will make me think something about life again, that’s what I like about watching her movies, you’ll realize lessons you’ve never heard before, new perception in things etc. 

The second DVD is for my healthy living thingy. It’s difficult for me to exert an effort to exercise but I when I heard the songs played in the background earlier at HMV, I knew then that this is it. This should be my background song for my exercise. Weeee! I fell asleep though so I never got the chance. :P Maybe tomorrow…

Loneliness is eating me up alive again.

And then I fell asleep. I was awaken by an earthquake sound, I was wondering if where is it coming from, I can also feel my heart beating so loud that it started to confuse me where the sound’s really coming from. I sat up, and looked at the wide window surrounding fifty percent of my bedroom. The window in my left shows traffic with bright combination of red and white lights. I stared for like a minute then decided to try the other window where it shows a couple of buildings where in the midst of those high and dark structures are the dancing fireworks. 

Today Hong Kong is celebrating National Day, so while other people are enjoying the views of fireworks, eating delicious delicacies, and laughing with their friends and families, here I am, expressionless, numb and hungry. While other people are having fun going to malls, enjoying the scenery, here I am scrubbing the floor, cleaning my house and cooking dinner I cannot eat afterwards. 

Doing all those things is a remedy for my loneliness, and while I was typing this, I remembered how I cried hours ago, because no matter how I reach out, there’s nobody out there. I realized, that no matter what happen, only you can save yourself, nobody else can. Doing that is a grand proof that you’re a strong person and no one will absolutely can bring you down.
