Morning Rush 37 (Funny Reasons Why Ateneo or La Salle Is Better?)

Why is La Salle and Ateneo bitter enemies?It was just a thought cause i've been researching why is La Salle and Ateneo bitter enemies... As from what I've known so far, it started in the NCAA basketball tournament back in i don't know what year.... sa inyo, bakit nga ba? Just a thought... Hindi ako nagtapos ng pag-aaral sa alinman sa La Salle Greenhills o sa Ateneo de Manila, ang topic lang na ito ang pumasok sa isipan ko kaya ko ito ginawan ng post. Isang pagtataka o tanong sa aking sarili bakit nga ba? parang GMA at ABS, Anti at Pro PGMA, Toyota vs Crispa, aso't pusa, bus drivers at MMDA sa EDSA. This topic is close to the heart of Atenista & LaSalista. Kahit na sa Bulacan State University ako nanggaling, hinding-hindi ko mababalitaan ang rivalry ng dalawang school na ito. Isa akong Ateneo Blue Eagle Fan and as a regular blogger engineer, I have to suspend all bias and try to judge this post as objectively as possible, to ensure I don’t favor Ateneo, even unwittingly. Pero mahirap magtagumpay sa layunin kong ito, but I do appreciate a good laugh:


Top Funny Reasons Why Ateneo or La Salle Is Better?
01. Ateneo, kasi religious. Kasapi ako sa iglesia ni Chris Tiu.
02. La Salle, because Ateneans make good employees, while Lasallians make good employers.
03. Ateneo, kasi mas magaling sila magluto…ng basketball game!
04. Ateneo, kasi kung sino man ang kalaban ng La Salle, doon ako!
05. Ateneo, kasi sabi nila, TIUmamba lang daw ang Ateneo. Hindi no! NaTIUgi lang talaga ang La Salle!
06. As the saying goes: Party with the La Sallites, but marry the Ateneans.
07. La Salle, because Erap was an Atenean.
08. Both are mayabang, pero at least ang Ateneo, may ipagyayabang.

09. During cheering competitions, La Salle’s crowd is better because they don’t shoo away people from other schools in their seating area, the way Ateneo does.
10. La Salle is better because they live happier lives. Di ba ignorance is bliss?
11. Ateneo is better because they know how to spell their name in cheerdance competitions.
12. Ateneo, because they’ve never been suspended from the UAAP, and they still attend the awarding ceremonies even when they lose.
13. Ateneo is better because of Chris Tiu. La Salle is better because of TY Tang. But both came from Xavier. Do the math.
14. La Salle is better kasi they’re better in geography. Ateneo de Manila pero nasa Quezon City naman sila.
15. Ateneo is better kasi mas malapit sa U.P.
16. Ateneo is better because their celebration was bigger.


17. Someone said that she dated boys from both schools. Pag Atenean, top. Pag La Salle, bottom.
18. Someone said that Ateneo is better because his Dad is a diehard Lasallian, but he sent him to study in Ateneo.

19. DLSU stands for: Di Lumusot Sa Upcat.
20. Both are good; they supply quality education to those who failed to pass in U.P.
21. The only reason Ateneo won was because the referee fell in love with Chris Tiu.
22. Ateneo is better because more grade school Ateneans pass the Pisay entrance exams than grade school Lasallians.
23. Ateneo may have won the championship only twice in the past 8 years, but what makes the difference, is that in both championships, they beat La Salle.

Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire


Warning : This post contain spoilers
(Kung hindi nyo pa napapanood better not read and then later hate me)

When was the last time you love at awed & touched by a movie?
Jamal Malik is one question away from winning 20million rupees.How did he do it?a. he cheated
b. he’s lucky
c. he’s a genius
d. it is written
Dahil taun-taon ako nanonood ng Oscar at kinu-collect ko ang lahat ng movie na nominated sa Best Picture Category, talagang inantay kong ilabas sa dvd ang mga movies na iyon. Isa na rito syempre ang nanalong best picture ang “slumdog millionaire”, na nananalo din ng best picture sa golden globes! Na-curious talaga ako sa movie na ito, wala man akong hilig sa indian 0 bollywood films, talagang na-excite akong panoorin ito kaagad matapos ko itong mabili. Kahapon ng hapon sinimulan kong panoorin itong mag-isa dahil wala akong ginawa maghapon kundi mag-twitter lang. Umpisa pa lang maganda na yung scene, pati yung sounds bombay na bumbay. Hehe! Galing gumanap ng mga artista lalo na yung batang Jamal Malik, nakaktuwa silang magkapatid habang hinahabol sila ng pulis, ang isa sa hindi ko makakalimutang eksena na ginawa nung bata ay yung kinulong sya ng kuya nya sa isang pang-squatter na public toilet, wala syang ibang ginawa kundi tumalon sa butas kung saan...hindi ko na babanggitin at baka nasa kalagitnaan kayo ng pagkain.

Totoong maganda at very deserving na maging best picture ang slumdog millionaire. The indian actors performed at their best. This movie showed us the slum part of india, but at the same time pinakita din nito na kahit ang isang taong lumaki sa slums at nabuhay sa pagiging con, will turn out to be someone who, when asked a question, answers them "Truthfully". Too truthful sabi nga ng pulis na interogator nya. The movie tells us about Jamal Malik, and his journey in life that lead him to the Indian version ng "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". Pinakita ng pelikulang ito kung paano ang isang uneducated at isang slumdog person na makasagot sa tanong patungong 20-million-rupees-question. Jamal, in the movie, reminded me that the answers to life’s random questions are not always found and learned in the confines of a classroom or within the university walls. Sabi nga ng ilan, at sinasang-ayunan ko, experience is the best teacher, may mga bagay nga na hindi natin natututunan sa loob ng eskwelahan. In the end Jamal would surprise me that all along he joined the show for a different reason most of us would.
One who is not used to watching foreign movies, like me, espeacially a Bollywood/Indian Films would probably be bothered with an all this indian cast. I wasn’t and I liked it. Ito lang siguro yung indian film na nagustuhan ko at humanga ako sa gawa nila, talagang original at kakaiba ang takbo ng istorya. And when the film ended, i can only applaud and remember how this movie touched me and how the actors, especially the kids are very convincing in this film. Dahil nga sa napakaganda ng istorya, inulit ko itong panoorin kasama ang aswa ko, nung una nagtataka sya bakit ko binili yung dvd na ito at mukhang nakakatamad daw panoorin, hindi porke't nanalo na ng Oscar eh maganda ng panoorin, sabi nga nya sa akin, "sige pagbibigyan kitang panoorin ko yung movie pero kung after 30 minutes hindi ko nagustuhan, matutulog na ako", natapos na yung movie hindi pa tumatayo si Niña sa lap ko at mukhang nagustuhan nya rin, napatayo lang sya nung bandang climax na, yung scene na ginagamit na ni Jamal yung last lifeline na, Call-A-Friend'. Naexcite din si Niña sa movie at hanggang sa pagtulog namin ay iyon ang pinagkukwentuhan namin.
Memorable Movie Quotes/Dialogue
Sergeant : professors, doctors, lawyers, genarals never get beyond sixty thousand rupees. he’s at ten million. what the hell can a slumdog possibly know?
Policer Officer : the answers?
Jamal Malik : i knew… the answers.

This film not only won a Golden Globe but also won the 2008 best picture award, best director, best screenplay and best original song among the 8 awards na nakuha nya sa nakaraang Oscar.
How did he do it?a. he cheated
b. he’s lucky
c. he’s a genius

Marley and Me

Marley and Me
Awww!!! That's all I can say. This movie really made me cry. "A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his."

-Josh Grogan
Isang ka-blog ko ang nagpost at nagbigay ng review sa movie na ito, hindi daw sya umiiyak sa mga pelikula pero humikbik sya, that's my blogger friend Gilbert, dahil sa kwento nya na-curious ako sa movie at binili ko ito nang magpunta ako ng Malolos kahapon at binalak kong antayin si Niña na makauwi ng bahay upang sabay kaming panoorin ito.

I like how the story unfolds with their lovable pet, Marley and the family. Actually the story is pretty simple but it shows the true emotions and reality of people and their pets. Pinanood namin to kagabi ng asawa ko ko, we related to the movie so much kasi we are a dog lovers and we also have our own version of Marley, si Wuwu, hindi man sya Labrador. Ordinary dog lang sya, pandak at saksakan din ng kulit.

I love the scene where in si Jen na ngagarag sa pag aalaga ng two sons nya then nandun si Marley nagwawala, then di na nya makayanan kakulitan ni Marley kaya pinapunta muna nila yung aso sa friend ni John. So far di pa naman nangyari sa akin yun, mahaba ang patience ko with animals pero that scene really stuck in my head.

Tapos yung ending nya, sobrang iyak ng wife ko, ako maluha-luha sa eksena. Damn it! Sa movies na bida ang tao di mo ko mapapaiyak pero syet harapan mo ko ng pusa o aso na umiiyak on cue, ngangawa ako. After nung movie, I saw my wife still crying and I was laughing at her, pero nagmadali syang tumayo at naghahanap ng panyo. Hanggang sa matutulog na lang kami kitang-kita ko ang pamamaga ng mata ni Niña.

Habang pinapanood ko yung mga deleted scenes at gag reels sa bonus feature ng dvd, hinanap ni Niña yung aso namin na si Wuwu upang sabihin "Wuwu wag ka muna mamatay ha! Yoko umiyak!" 4 years na naming aso si wuwu at alam kong matagal pa kaming magkakasama! Marley & Me is a hankie movie, so bring lots of tissues. It's the true story of journalist Grogan (Wilson), following his life from his wedding day to fellow journalist Jenny (Aniston). Along the way, they move from Michigan to South Florida, where he gets a job at the Sun-Sentinel and she gets a job at the Palm Beach Post. He dreams of becoming a big-time investigative reporter like his buddy Sebastian (Dane), but he gets assigned a column by his editor, played by Alan Arkin. In order to postpone Jenny's baby fever, he gets her a dog.
Marley & Me is cute and sweet and sappy. It does have echoes of It's a Wonderful Life, in that John Grogan is a man who, for much of the movie, seems incapable of appreciating what he has, always looking at what he doesn't have. Some people will find that annoying. Other will find themselves identifying with him. Marley & Me will make you cry. You can't avoid it. That inevitable moment will come and you'll feel the tears welling up. Fighting them will be futile. Just surrender to it, have a good cry, and go home and hug you dog or cat or bunny, hamster, bird, iguana or fish tank extra tight. It will make you feel better.

Earth Day 2009

How does one make the world a better place to live in? Have you ever thought of that question? As for me, I’ve been asking this question from time to time in my life, especially in moments when I am alone and pondering on my family’s future. How do I help make the world better?

Upon thinking on the things that I can do, I came up with the following criteria. It has to:
•be easy for me to do
•be something that my family can participate in
•have a visible impact in my community
•be viral
•be either cheap or free to do

Based on the above criteria, I came up with the following ideas:
•Clean up our front yard and our neighbor’s front yard
•Give food to the poor people nearby
•Tell people about global warming
•Conserve water and electricity
•Recycle household junk and either re-use them, sell them or give them to friends

These are the top 5 items on my list which I think I can do to make the world better. What about you? What’s in your “How to Make the World Better” list?

We can save the planet starting at this very moment if we really want to and I believe that saving planet Earth is not a steep task for us human beings. A little self-discipline and a little vigilance is probably all we need to get started.

I’m sure you have ideas on what we should do. As for me, I do my own little thing by not polluting my own neighborhood. I also take the extra mile by sharing my ideas to others on how to save the planet. If they too have thoughts in saving Earth then they too share their their ideas to me. This way, our awareness grows even better which in turn encourages us to do the right thing.

What about you? What are your ideas? What’s your share in this global effort to save the planet?

You Change My Life


Jologs na kung Jologs! Hindi ako mahilig sa tagalog movies at lalong hindi ako filipino movie fanatic, shame on me pero yan ang totoo... jologs daw ang taong nanonood ng tagalog movie sa sinehan. Paano naman kung maganda talaga yung movie at gustong-gusto kong panoorin? nandyan ang dvd right? Antay na lang namin niña ang dvd version ng mga tagalog movies, depende sa gusto namin. That’s true… usually. Noong napanood namin sa dvd ang “A Very Special Love”, nagandahan kami sa movie at hindi ko ni-regeret ang pagbili bng dvd nito kahit nagastusan pa kami ng 60 pesos lang naman, oo 60 pesos lang ang dvd dito sa bulacan (pirated kasi pero dvd copy na sya). Kahapon, nagpunta kami sa Malolos City ni Niña upang maghanap ng dvd at ilang us tv series tulad ng CSI:Las Vegas season 8, Numb3rs season 2, Ironman, Wall-E at kung anu-ano pa na wala pa sa dvd rack ko o list ng collection ko. Gulat ako ng biglang may kinuhang dvd si Niña at pinakita sa akin sabay pina-test kung maganda na yung kopya, "You Change My Life" ang sequel ng movie nila Sarah and John Lloyd, I never hesitated to buy it deahil alam kong mganda yung movie, mas maganda pa raw sa part 1.

After we ate our dinner, Niña invited my sister Anne to watch that movie, I never regret watching the “You Change My Life” movie of Sarah and John Lloyd because I can certainly say it is “sulit”. Niña was so absorbed by the movie and still have the smile on her and my face because we really love to watch it again. Hinding-hindi ako kinilig sa movie pero yung dalawang babae na kasama ko sobrang kinikilig, babae nga naman. “You Change My Life” really changed my impressions on Filipino Movies and I really giggled on those cute scenes when the two lovers (Miggy and Layda) try to make sweet moments together and the “Bebe ko” ring tone still keeps on ringing in my ear even till this writing.

So, I am hoping to watch more best tagalog movies in the near future, can't wait to buy the dvd version of "Sundo" and "T2" and hopefully the Philippine movie industry can create and produce more excellent movies this year.
Congratulations to Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz for a good movie and also to ABS-CBN Star Cinema for producing such movie.

Bolt


ang saya!!! kakatapos ko lang panoorin yung bolt! ang ganda pala! nakaka-iyak yung ending! artista pala kasi yung aso. nung una akala ko totoo na kaya niyang gawin yun. akala din niya meron talaga siyang super powers at akala niya totoong kinidnap si penny kaya tumakas siya at hinanap yung green-eyed man. naka-abot siya ng new york kasi nailagay siya sa isang box na ishiship sa new york. sa hollywood siya galing. tapos may nakilala siyang friends. pusa at hamster. yung pusa yung nagsabi sa kanya na wala talaga siyang super powers. yung hamster naman, fan niya. sinasabi naman ng hamster na sasama siya para mahanap yung green-eyed man. ililigtas din daw niya si penny. chorba!!! napapanood kasi nung hamster si bolt sa tv! tapos yung naging ending, nakabalik si bolt sa hollywood tapos nasunog yung set ng show tapos naiwan sa loob si penny. siya yung nag-save sa kanya!!! ang galing! ginamit niya yung super bark niya. sa movie kasi yung super bark kayang magpaguho ng mga chorba. syempre hindi naman yun kaya sa reality. ginamit niya yung bark niya para tawagin yung mga bumbero at sabihin na may naiwan pa sa loob ng nasusunog na building. kaya ayun... na-save silang dalawa!!! ang galing!!!
yun lang... maglalaro na ako ulit! hehe!


"Bolt!!!"

That would often be the line of Penny (voiced by Miley Cyrus) when she needs the dog's help in dire situations like getting attacked my motorbike-riding villains and helicopters with long-range missiles. Of course, those dire situations would happen not in their "real life," but rather on the television show both Penny and Bolt (voiced by John Travolta) star in. The rub is that Bolt has no idea that they're in a television show.

Bolt is a nice 3D animated film that has humor and action for the whole family. The light-hearted story is essentially a cross-country adventure of Bolt, Mittens the Cat (voiced by Susie Essman) and Rhino the Hamster (voiced by Mark Walton). Each of them have their own distinct characterizations and the movie took advantage of this tight three-creature ensemble to get funny moments in their journey from New York to Hollywood.

I found the funniest moments in the film not from Bolt's Don Quixote-like delusions about his capabilities, but from the movie's potshots at Hollywood and television industry, from the annoying agents, to aspiring to aspiring writers. The mix of heart-warming and funny scenes would appeal to both kids and adults, similar to the way Shrek did. My only nitpick with the film is the predictable story and the incessant switching between the real-life and the television scenes.

Bolt is a great family movie and makes for a good weekend romp with no worries.


Rating: 3.5/5

Music In My Head (Endless Love)


"Ang musika ay parte ng araw-araw na pamumuhay natin. May iba sa atin na ginaganahan mag-aral kapag may music, ginaganahan kumain pag may music, etcetera etcetera... at kadalasan pag sobra nating pinapakinggan ang isang kanta, nagsa-stuck ito sa utak natin at yun na ang song for the day natin, minsan pa nga tumatagal ng ilang araw, isang linggo. At kahit yung pinaka-ayaw nating kanta ay nagsa-stuck din! Sa ngayon eto ang LSS Ko!"


Happy 43rd monthsary babba!!!







My love,There's only you in my life
The only thing that's bright
My first love,You're every breath that I take
You're every step I make

And I want to share All my love with you
No one else will do...

And your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love

Two hearts,Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun
Forever I'll hold you close in my arms
I can't resist your charms

And love, Oh, love
I'll be a fool for you, I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh, you know I don't mind

'Cause you, you mean the world to me
Oh! I know, I know
I've found in you my endless love

Oooh-woow Boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, booom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

Oooh, and love! Oh, love
I'll be that fool for you,
I'm sure that you know I don't mind
Oh you know- I don't mind

And, yes! You'll be the only one
'Cause no one no one can deny
This love I have inside
And I'll give it all to you
My love, My love, My love
My endless love

The Dark Night

The Dark Knight
One of the most anticipated movies of 2008!Ang tagal kong inantay ang araw na makabili ng dvd nito. Wala kasi akong hilig manood ng sine, at enjoy ako sa bahay lang watching a dvd, tuwing wala akong ginagawa. Kung gusto kong kumain, o magpunta ng cr, maligo, may bisitang dumating, may istorbong magnanakaw sa likuran, wala akong gagawin kundi i-pause ang pinapanood ko at muling balikan ang huling scene kung saan ako nahinto. Ayon sa internet at sa mga naririnig kong usap-usapan noong pinapalabas pa ito sa mga sinehan, it was the great comic adaptation movie ng 2008. When I watch it, everything I've heard about "The Dark Knight" is absolutely, 100% true. This is an outstanding movie from beginning to end. Right from the opening scene where The Joker orchestrates a brutal bank robbery to the ending scenes where we see him gleefully hanging out the window of a police car, the world of movies does not get much better than this.

"The Dark Knight" was directed by Christopher Nolan for his follow-up to 2005's "Batman Begins". This movie is one for the ages. Once na magustuhan ang isang movie tulad nito, na ako lang mag-isa ang nanood sa bahay, hihikayatin ko si Nina na panoorin ito kasama ako, may tiwala sya sa akin regarding sa pagpili ko ng dvd, alam nyang pag nagandahan ako sigurado at maeengganyo talaga syang panoorin. It is that good? According to the net: Most discussions about "The Dark Knight" will begin and end with Heath Ledger. There is only one word I can think of to describe his performance - mesmerizing. You will hang at every word he says. Your eyes will be glued to the screen every time he appears. You will try to dissect and analyze him - but you will fail. This is not a normal portrayal that you will see. In fact, if we did not know it was Heath Ledger playing The Joker, we may not even realize it was him. Ledger became The Joker in this movie and his Joker was out of this world. It is without a doubt the best villain depiction we have seen since Anthony Hopkins became Hannibal Lecter in 1991. Even Nicholson's Joker cannot hold a light to Ledger. At the time, Nicholson's performance was considered groundbreaking, but Ledger puts the 1989 version to shame. This Joker did not dance around the screen to Prince songs and give pretty girls flowers. He is a ruthless killer and a crazy yet brilliant villain. There is not a moment in this movie where he isn't two steps ahead of anyone else, including Batman. It was simply superb but at the same time sad - sad that we will never see a follow up performance from this splendid actor. Sad that the world lost him at such a young age...

Besides Ledger, TDK is blessed with a glorious cast. Whether it be Christain Bale's Bruce Wayne and his powerful, yet disturbed, Batman, Aaron Eckhart's Harvey Dent and his terrifying Two-Face, Gary Oldman's "Ned Flander-ish" Commissioner Gordon or Michael Caine's Alfred Pennyworth, there is not a single actor or actress that does not carry his or her weight in this movie. Make no mistake, however - this is Heath Ledger's movie. I have to say one thing, however, I noticed Anthony Michael Hall's name in the credits. It's rumoured he is going to eventually, somewhere down the road, show up as The Riddler - but I did not notice him at all in the movie. I'm hoping to notice him during my second viewing.

The action in The Dark Knight is thrilling - whether it be Batman's nose dive from the skylines of Hong Kong or the tractor trailer flipping end-over-end on the streets of Gotham. There are many shocking moments, even a few that might make you jump in your seat. It's funny at times and frightening at others. "The Dark Knight" is the complete package.

I'm really not sure what else to say. Whether I speak highly of "The Dark Knight" or not, most of the movie-loving world will be seeing it within the next 2-5 days - at least once. Expect TDK to break records. Then when it comes out on DVD/Blu-ray, expect it to break more. It will all be well-deserved. "The Dark Knight" will end up front and centre of most movie collections in the world soon enough. But for now, enjoy your weekend watching the best movie, so far, of 2008 and one of the best individual performances that you may see in your lifetime.
