The Help ( United States, 2011)


Racism is still an issue despite our modern days. With the liberty that all of us experience nowadays, It’s a wonder why a lot of people is still fighting for it. The movie The help was enable to educate my ignorant mind when it comes to the hardships that “coloured” people face during the earlier years.

The help is about the black maids who are working for white people and the discrimination they encounter. A white struggling writer known as Ms. Skeeter (Emma Stone) decided to hear the stories of different helps in order to write a novel about it. The decision was risky but with the helps encouragement she manage to pull off.

The movie is quite long because the story is adapted from a book. The story is intriguing and informative. I just hope that they find another way to execute the scenes or atleast make it shorter. If you want a film that stimulate the mind, go for this. The actors and actress are very good. I actually like Emma Stone in the film. She exemplify a modern day woman who chooses to achieve things on her own. Not needing relationship to complete her. Her curly hair here is attractive as well. The locations and costumes are not that believable but it is definitely forgivable. The script and lines here is legend! Very well-written. I just hope that they were able to find another way to showcase the scenes, or make it more entertaining. But it is a well-written film. Very nice and provocative. Just make sure to have ample time watching this.

January 2014 Goal: Be Fit!

For the nth time, I am actually trying to cut the bulge in my waist and be boney. You see, I was never thin throughout my puberty up until now. My body is a constant yo-yo that easily returns to its big self when I let my undisciplined and food lover self takes control.

The constant banter regarding my weight gain for the past year is bothering, but what really makes me say “Hey, I need to exercise again” is the upcoming high school reunion that we will be having this month!

Gotta give them something to talk about besides my not so stellar corporate life, huh? So there, I just want to jot down the things that I gotta do to be able to attain my goal for the first month of the year. This is actually my new year’s resolution that I need to work on, pronto!

Dzoantheexplorer’s Fitness Plan:

1. Exercise Regularly: 

Morning: Stretching, 5 minute work out

Evening: Stretching, 20 minutes jogging/ weekdays or 30 minutes /weekend

2. Drink Tea and Milk everyday

3. Eat a fruit at least a day.

4. Less sugar (ice cream, soft drinks and fastfood)

5. Eat heavy breakfast and sleep early to avoid supper. lol

Hope this thing will bring the 24-inch waistline that I’ve been dreaming about since forever.

Day 31:

EARLY BIRD AND CHECKING

I woke up around 5 in the morning, but fail to catch the 6:05 train so i tried my tested route. But instead of riding lrt, I rode a jeepney. It is cheaper for only 4 pesos. The trip is also fast. It can even compete to the fastness of lrt, but well the latter is my most tried and tested.  I was the 3rd one to arrive with the surprise of my classmates in the testing area. My classmates came one by one. Even before the clock strikes 8 (which is the official start of our ojt). We were asked to do checking already. We were pressured to finish the checking before lunchbreak. We’ve done our share of checking and were finish after an hour. 

PHOTOSHOOT & INA’S SALON

During our lunch break my semi-retarded co interns thoughts of ridiculous things to do. Picture taking and stuff. It almost turn out to be scandalous. I dont want to elaborate on that matter heheh. I was the assigned photographer but because of laughing, I wasn’t able to do the last shot. HAHAH.

Before break, we watch different videos like autopsy of alien and a girl, and curling your hair using tissue and socks. We’ve decided to do the latter, one of our classmates is the victim. While one of my classmate is curling her hair, one chose to cut her hair and have a bangs. Are we really in ojt? hahah

Of course while doing our craziness we still manage to do some real ojt works. Like rechecking and stuffs.

EATING IS MY FAVORITE HOBBY

We ate a lot today. From the buko pie at the morning, ice cream before lunch. Clover for merienda and Watta Tops for late snack. I still feel hungry. want to eat more. Thank God it was not long before we dismiss. It’s my father’s birthday today so I was hoping for loads of food in the house. ahahah.

“Just enjoy.”
