Do you know what I did last summer?

Summer for me officially began after school ended last April 5, 2019. The next two weeks was grueling hard work of preparing evidences that I actually did do my job. Don’t ask me why the government doesn’t trust us because I have been doing this for 5 years already.

The 3rd week of April marked my intense visa application for the United States. After finally setting up an appointment for May, I packed my bags (as well as my daughter’s) and we flew to Manila.

As planned, we decided to stay there until 3rd week of May.

Our first outing as a family was watching Avengers: Endgame. I went in the movie house with extremely high expectations. You can’t really blame me because I thoroughly enjoyed the Infinity Wars. So you can just imagine my extreme disappointment over the movie.

It was horrible. In my humble opinion, they really botched up the movie. Seriously.

With so many awesome characters in the Avengers, they decided Iron Man should be the one to make it all right? Plus they killed Natasha. Then they made the Hulk a wimp. Don’t get me started on Thor. Come on, he’s a god. They really couldn’t make him look as hot as he should in a snap?

I actually don’t want to write about this but seeing the furor over how spectacular the movie has died down, I am now brave enough to admit that I didn’t like the movie all that much.

However, my time with my siblings and my daughter was simply great. We had Dairy Queen afterwards to soothe our feelings of sorrow.

The following days also saw me jump into the pool more than once. Since I was the only adult on vacation, I was tasked to entertain and watch over the kids. I had a grand time with them. I also tried to work on my tan but it was hopeless.

Another thing that made our vacation memorable was when I met up with my close friend Philip and his family. We reintroduced Heaven and Corvin to each other and of course, also my young brother Liam became friends with Corvin.

We ate at this place called Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. The kids had a blast while Philip, his wife Jane and I also bonded. It was a fun-filled night and it was followed with a play date over the weekend. The kids reunited and once more had a superb time with each other.

I also got to visit my cousin Kats and her son Koen. We went to Nail Tropics for a foot spa and later on, to Starbucks for some coffee. It was a short visit but it was better than nothing. The kids could not stop talking about Roblux and Fortnite.

This is but the first leg of what I did last summer. Until my next post. Ciao!

Your Name…

I finally watched this movie yesterday. It was so good.

I thought that the movie plot was similar to a manga where a group of teens switched bodies but I was mistaken. This movie had time travel and switching bodies but with the feels.

I liked how the story was believable and realistic. I fell in love with Taki and Mitsuha. They were great characters with a healthy outlook in life. I liked how each of them took advantage of the phenomena happening to them. It was so realistic.

The ending was perfect. It connotes of disbelief and hope.

I highly recommend this movie. It has enough fantasy and realism that is capable of keeping you in your seat.

Strange magic, indeed.

My kazin Carlo told me that there’s this movie called Strange Magic and that i should watch it because it’s uber nice.

Love is strange. :p

Love is strange. :p

After watching the movie, I had to agree.

I totally loved the first song featured in it because it’s THE song I want for my wedding. “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley. Super loved Evan Rachel Wood’s version, too.

Liked most of the songs in the soundtrack as well. It was well thought of.

Watching it, made me reflect on how I still have not yet met the right man for me. Still, the movie mad me hopeful.

Speaking of hope, Heaven and I watched “Home” and it was quite unforgettable because it was the first movie she cried to.

Oh!

Oh!

When we all thought that Oh died, she cried and cried. It was a heart-wrenching moment for me. I can’t believe that she’s growing up so fast! She now gets scared and now, she can actually cry when watching a movie!

Anyway, I’m now recharged. Got to blog and am ready for tomorrow’s first day of school. Get this, I’m a Grade 7 Class Adviser!!! So yeah, I’m psyched.

Welcome, June!!!!

Reruns: Honey I shrunk the Kids and Honey I blew up the Baby

Revisited these two movies because Rick Moranis is a totally lovable goof and of course, I introduced the idea of how sizes can change to Heaven through the use of a plasma laser beam thingy because we are all made up of matter that can be manipulated by electromagnetic energy. Whatever. 

I just really liked all the adventures the kids were having and Heaven loved it too!
