She's Dating the Gangster

I admit I have not read the book.

It was our usual Sunday activity to relax and unwind.  When we had a chance this afternoon to watch a movie I suggested immediately to pick "She's Dating the Gangster" played by the famous teen stars in our country Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.  Well, of course, I expected that this is a simple tickle movie with a light drama.  I just wanted to feel like a teen and be in love.  I never expected that I will shed many tears while watching the movie.  Yes, I was ticked by it, but I cried a lot.  I mean a lot that hubby was so worried because I kept on coughing too.  I am not still okay, but I never expected that it will become worse.  I do not want to go the comfort room because I do not want to miss some lines.  In short, I love the story so much.  The love portrayed in the story is so magical and I am so that that there is someone will give a testimony on how LOVE bring them together again like in the movie. 

Hubby loves the movie even if it is not a foreign film.  I'm sure he will change his mind that Tagalog movies are not totally garbage.  It is worth of our money.

Lyca for the Win


It is almost finals of the "The Voice Kids Philippines".  After the performance yesterday, I already fixed my mind that I will choose Darren and Lyca.  The kids are from Team Sarah and from them I got goose bumps.

Today's performance is with their coaches and other singers.  To be honest, I am like Lyca's mom.  I am tense as well especially she was singing an English song. She admitted that she is having a hard time and her pronunciation is not that good, but I can feel how she loves what she is doing and she really tried her best for it.  This is not sympathy.  She is really a good singer.  I am so happy that she was included in the finals.

Go, go, go LYCA!

Typhoon Glenda

With the beautiful weather today in Davao I have no problem in going to the office today. But, seeing the news this morning made me feel sad because some of my fellow Filipinos up north are experiencing typhoon Glenda or internationally known as "Rammasun". My prayers are with you. Just keep safe.

My Kind of Clouds

Cirrocumulus Clouds on 365 Project

Just this morning, I saw this kind of clouds that I always love to see. They add beauty to my morning. According from Mr. Wiki, this kind of formation is a "Cirrocumulus clouds". Actually seeing it reminds of the beach water and sand.

Eggplant Salad

It's been awhile that I haven't shared my food preparations these days. So for today, I prepared an "Eggplant Salad" for lunch. I thought that this will be a perfect combination for my boiled egg.

Preparing this is so easy. I just boiled the eggplant for three to five minutes. Shred it by using fork and set aside. Slice ginger, onions, fresh tomatoes and spring onions according to your preferred cut and mix to our cooked eggplant. Put a very small amount of spicy vinegar, lemon and salt to taste. Aside from boiled egg, this is also a good combination for fried fish and pork. Try it and enjoy.

This vegetable is low in calorie so no need to worry if I prepare this all the time.

Beach Day

I'm in the beach this very morning.  Hubby and our mutual friends planned this just this week to de-stress.

It is not new to us that sun, sea water and sand give us helpful benefits in our body. I learned that:

The natural way of getting Vitamin D is to expose our bare skin to sun.  According to studies, it only takes a while to expose it.  Half an hour will be enough.  The more skin we exposed, the more we get Vitamin D.  Just don't forget to bring our sunscreen if we wanted to bask after 10 in the morning.  Vitamin D helps our immune system, muscles and heart work.  It also helps reduce from having cancer.  Moreover, it helps us looks great and happier as it will spare us from depression.

On the other hand, sea water has this miracle treatment to clean our skin and take away excess oil of our hair.  The good reason also is that it helps cure and cuts.  Of course, part of de-stressing is to go swimming. It helps us become fit as it allows our whole body to work because of this kind of exercise.

Walking on the sand barefoot helps our soles become soft because sand is considered a natural exfoliant.

Lastly, staying in the beach gives me a nice feeling.  It is a nice place to read books under the palm shade.  So relaxing.  Now you know why I love going to the beach.

Have a nice Sunday everyone.
