Pee Mak (Movie Review)

Pee Mak is a Thai comedy-horror film in Thailand that stared Davika Hoorne and one of the hottest Asian Superstar Mario Maurer. It’s the 2nd Thai movie I’ve watched with my cousins last night and can you believe that I’m still gushing about it? It only means that I really enjoyed the movie. Well I believe a lot of Asians enjoyed it too, making it the highest grossing film of all time in Thailand and in Asia.

The story revolves between Mae Nak and Pee Mak and the love they have for each other. It shows how powerful love that even death can’t put an end to it. Pee Mak’s friends played a big part and support in the movie that made it extremely funny. Their punchlines and facial expressions were remarkable I almost cried laughing. There were also scenes that was very touching and heartfelt you would really appreciate and realize that their love is extraordinary and unique. It’s a must see movie and I super love Mario Maurer. Imma watch it again!

Watch the trailer below.

Wasted TIME, Wasted ME.

TIME IS GOLD. A motto that I have to instill on my mind. A motto that I have to practice during my 2 days rest from work.

Seriously, I don’t know what’s gotten into me. I feel so unproductive, I don’t have the energy that I used to have and I can’t even take good care of myself. Whew!

This past few days during my rest days, all I gotta do was to just stay at home, lock myself in the room and watch movies and TV Series. I don’t feel like going out, not in the mood to socialize, I’m not even eating regularly, or brush my teeth,  take a bath and do the laundry and pay my bills. Gosh, I know I’m already a Lazy Ass but it’s getting worst!

During my rest days for the past 2 weeks I’ve watched a lot of movies. Movies I have already watched over and over again. A lot of WASTED TIME.

Burlesque – (Cher and Christina Aguilera), Moulin Rouge – (Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor), Legally Blonde – (Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson) Sinister, Ruby Sparks, The Avengers (Chris Evans, Samuel Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana, Jeremy Rener and Robert Dawney Jr.), Harry Potter from Part 1 to Part 8 (Danielle Radcliffe and Emma Watson), So Close, Mulan and Looper (Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Joseph Gordon-Levitt). I still have movies I’ve watched that I can no longer remember. Can you imagine the hours I’ve spent watching these?? Unbelievable right???

Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha Jones were also there wasting my precious time by watching Sex and The City Season 1, all 12 episodes. Luckily, I can’t remember where I put my Gossip Girls DVD’s.

Right this moment of time, I haven’t taken a bath for 2 days and my hair is awful. Well, at least I got the nerve to brush my teeth and wash my face. I’m also addicted to this Creamy Latte from Nescafe which gives me satisfaction and comfort even if I don’t eat the entire day. I can also feel that one of these days, my dear lap top will no longer function because it’s ON most of the time. The keyboard is no longer working properly and it is full of dust. I can’t even do my own laundry, I had to call the laundry shop and I had to buy new socks and undies, coz I don’t want to wash them. I know my behavior isn’t right anymore!

 

My best friend is really dusty.

I badly need some serious shaving!

Wasted MeDSC_2091[1]

I’m pretty occupied and don’t know exactly the reason why I’m acting like this. Depression, Sadness??? I’m not on my best this past few days an currently on state of weakness. Whatever is happening to me, I strongly believe I’ll get over it. I guess I need a CHANGE and it should start from me ASAP.

 

 I still have to Smile after all, Life is beautiful… Even if my hair isn’t 🙂

Step-Up Revolution 4

I knew how to dance when I was younger, I just don’t know what happened now. Maybe because I grew taller (anong koneksiyon???) and I don’t have time to practice unlike before that I used to dance like every hour of the day. I can still remember joining to all the dance competition when I was in high school. Modern Dance, Ballroom Dance and even Folk Dance. I was also very fond of dancing to all the songs of Sexbomb Girls, from Spaghetti to Halukay Ube, Di ko na mapipigilan etc. (I Know Right! Baduy!), Jeniffer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. I feel like I wanna learn how to dance again after watching Step-Up Revolution last weekend with friends. I was so amazed  with how the movie was created especially the choreography. Though the story was pretty predictable, it’s  kinda amazing and interesting.

It was a Saturday when Medz and I met at Mall of Asia, we were both bored and had nothing to do. We met at Greenwich at 3pm. I ordered their super heavy platter meal and ate it all by myself. (FYI, up until this moment, I’m still not gaining weight). After the Pig Out at Greenwich, we went to David’s Salon for Rever to treat our not so lovely foot, which I didn’t enjoy! Though the staff of David’s were accommodating and kind, I must say their service (Foot Spa + Pedicure) is not good enough for a 600 Pesos. I should have gone to cheaper salons along Espana Boulevard like Angles or Fresh Salon; 200 Pesos is fair enough!  Anyway, we did a little shopping because  MOA (Mall of Asia) was on SALE! I bought a fabulous watch with extra 5 colorful straps and a cute box for shades in Aldo. After a tiring shopping we ate at Chef D’ Angelo and met Apple.

Starving to Death! Loads of Carbo at Greenwich. (Rice, Chicken, Spaghetti, Pizza and 3pcs of Garlic Breads)

I was so full!!!

Medz took this photo while our foot were soaked in a hot small tub.

It was his idea to have our picture taken with these shoes at the background. So Gay!

I want those Colorful Neon Pumps Shoes at the background!!!

Bought 2 good finds in Aldo and a shirt at Bench.

Guy we met at Forever 21. It was Medz who wanted us to have a picture together. Infairness, this guy is a cutie in person!

Another Pig Out Moment at Chef D’ Angelo we both ordered Chicken with Rice Pasta and a Pizza.

“Still waiting for oder # 78” 🙂

I didn’t want to have a picture coz I was busy eating, but Medz was insisting! I even have a pasta inside my mouth when this photo was taken. Smile lang para di halata!

Yosi Break! (Picture taken by Apple)

With Apple who followed us to enjoy the night!

On our way to Sun Cellular Center to buy a broadband.

We watched the last full show of Step-Up Revolution around 11pm. At first we were thinking of what to watch, either Expendables 2 or the Ring 3.  I love horror but The Ring was no longer showing that time (pagod na siguro si Sadako). I’d love to watch Expendables 2 because I heard a lot of good reviews and the trailer was intense. The All star cast and A-lister Hollywood Actors is one of the good reason to watch this movie and I also have a huge crush on Bruce Willis, but it was SRO already 😦

We ended up watching Step-Up Revolution. The movie was simply amazing and very entertaining because there were rapid booty shaking and ofcourse a hot half naked guy (Ryan Guzman), which really impresses me. The music and choreography will make you stand up and dance inside the movie house, I was like dancing on my seat and the choreography and dance design are simply flawless in this movie.  Aside from the amazing plot of the story, there’s a lot of scene that you’re going to look forward to. The “Opening Scene” where they dances on the top of cars while it’s moving up and down. “The Art Gallery Exhibit Scene” which was really extravagant because it was colorful, the scene where “The Mob (name of the dance group), were all wearing suits while dancing  at the lobby of a certain property, “The Initiation to The Mob Scene”, the first time Emily (Kathryn McCormick) will join the gang in terms of dancing at a restaurant to promote their group and lastly, the “We are The Mob Scene” , wherein they showed to the world they really are and this is the scene where special characters from the previous Step-Up Movies appeared like, the Asian girl played by Maari Koda, Vladd played by Chad Smith and Moose one of  the most popular character from Step-Up 3D played by Adam Sevani. One thing I dont like is the acting skills of Ryan Guzman, its kinda lame. It’s a good thing that his gorgeous face and hot body turned me on. If you’re a dancer at heart, you’ll be inspired with this movie and It’s not just about entertainment! You’ll learn something from this movie like fighting for what you truly believed in and fighting for your loved ones; following your dreams and following your hearts desires, but most importantly never giving up and always aiming high.

After enjoying the Movie we went to Icebergs to have some lovely desserts before going home.

All Smiles because of the desserts?!

 Here’s what we order

  • Kahlua Sundae Ice Cream – 158.oo PHP / Mine
  • Caramel Flan with Mango – 128.oo PHP / Apple
  • Super Halo-Halo – 108.00 PHP / Medz

We accidentally met a friend who were currently staying at  Microtel Inn and Suites with her family.

I felt like I joined a Revolution because I was so tired that day, I immediately fell asleep when we arrived at Medz Apartment. We parted ways at 2am with exhaustion but with a little smile on our faces. I enjoyed that day.

Thanks Medz for letting me spent the night in your apartment and I apologize If I took your bed that night and you needed to sleep to another bed. hehehe.

Thanks Apple for joining us, you’ve been very consistent! Till our next escapades.

The Dark Knight Rises

I didn’t find Batman that amazing or interesting as a Superhero when I was kid. I can still remember my childhood friends conversation one time, they were saying that “Batman is the weakest and the most stupid superhero of all time”.  I just really didn’t care coz Darna and Storm of X-Men was my favorite superhero when I was a child. But after watching The Dark Knight especially The Dark Knight Rises, I proved them wrong.

I think it was last the weekend of July when we watched The Dark Knight Rises. A friend invited me to go to Spa with him and go to church afterwards, but then we just decided to watch movie and eat a lot. Meeting place was at Piandre coz I badly needed a haircut, unfortunately it was close so last option would be Tony and Jackey in Burgundy. I thought they were always great but I didn’t like my hair, it’s always a disaster with these Korean Hairstylist (walang kadala dala). Anyway, after a not so  wonderful trip in their salon we went to Greenbelt and Glorietta and ate a lot in Greenwich before watching the movie. I don’t like the movie house in Glorietta. For me it’s kinda small and I prefer those upper seats (on the middle please) far from the screen. We didn’t have any options because The Dark Knight Rises in Greenbelt 3 was sold out.

Before heading to the movie theater.

The Dark Knight

I wasn’t able to watch The Dark Knight in cinemas and it was a good thing that I watched it on DVD at home before watching the last  installment of Christopher Nolan‘s hit movie. The Dark Knight is an amazing, heart pounding movie not only because of Batman played by Christian Bale (who is amazingly hot), but because of The Joker played by the late Heath Ledger. Ledger’s acting was stellar and very convincing. Ledger outshines Bale when it comes to acting and I must say that Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker is one of the best performance of all time! May he rest in peace.


 

The Dark Knight Rises

Christoper Nolan didn’t fail to amuse all Batman fans around the world. He’s the reason why I now LOVE Batman. This masterpiece is better than Dark Knight and for me, this is one of the best movie of the year. Though it a huge worldwide hit, I wonder why it didn’t surpass The Dark Knight when it comes to the box office. The Dark Knight Rises is the 22nd-highest-grossing film of all time and is the 2nd for 2012.

Reasons why I love the movie:

  • Christian Bale is so HOT that he shouldn’t be aging so he can play the role of Batman for life. Let’s not give chance to others. LOL. Well, aside from his gorgeous face and body I guess his acting is better here compare to Dark Knight. I felt the pain when he was weak and when he couldn’t fight and save Gotham City because he was locked in some fucking place.
  • Anne Hathaway character as Catwoman. This girl is one of the Gorgeous creature on earth. She is so good athat she put Halle Berry on shame. A naughty and fierce cat who fell inlove with Batman! Do you agree that Bruce Wayne and Selina looks good together??? Another movie in the future??? Let’s hope so.
  • Tom Hardy as Bane. Though Bane can’t speak, Tom Hardy made me feel the fear of death and how powerful he is. He is tougher than Batman and is very brutal.
  • The Vehicles. As we all know Batman is such a Fabulous Superhero. The money, the girls, the mansion especially The modern Bat Bike, the Bat Mobiles and Batman’s flying vehicle are really amazing, I was in awe with all of these vehicle during the chasing scene.
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A charmer and a cutie. He is the smart police officer who found out the true identity of Bruce Wayne. A hero in his own way.
  • Alfred and Lucius Fox – I admire their loyalty to Batman. They’re the reason behind Batman’s success as a superhero
  • The Action Scene; which was really intense and somewhat brutal. Especially the fight scene between Batman and Bane and the ofcourse the chasing scene.
  • The Twist of the story. – That’s for you to find out…. 😉

The Cast

 My Superhero “Batman”

I love everything about Batman. Gorgeous, Hot, Wealthy and Tough.

Christian Bale

This 38 year old award winning actor is such a hottie. He is the best ever actor who portrayed Batman. Ooopps George Clooney!

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Anne Hathaway who is such a gorgeous and talented actress, gave justice to her character as Catwoman.

They looked good together noh?

Batman VS Bane

Bane played by Tom Hardy

Bane character as one of the villain in this movie is really effective. I got scared of him and he is tougher than Batman.

Jordan Gordon-Levitt as Robin John Blake (The new Robin in the future?)

He plays the smart police officer/detective and is one of the good guys.“My New Crush”

After the movie, we decided to walk around, took pictures, little shopping and a little boy hunting ;). We also went to Mall of Asia for dinner but we were having a hard time to look for a restaurant to eat, coz there’s a lot to choose  from. We ended up eating in Classic Savory; the food was average but affordable. After eating we decided to go home and had to cancel our massage. We were stranded for like 30 minutes because of the freaking weather. The wind blew really strong and we were soaking wet but even if it was a tiring day, what important is we had fun and I got to know Batman really well 🙂

My first time to dine at Classic Savory

Yes I bought dumbbells to help me to gain weight, which was not even planned. #SpontaneousMe

I wanted to buy the Pink one but I think it was just 3-5 pounds so its useless. I thought the Purple (9 pounds) one was Fab.

Medz you can do it.

I’m really serious to gain weight. (2 cups of rice please!)

After watching The Dark Knight Rises I am now addicted to Batman. I’m even planning to have a tattoo of the Batman Logo on my nape. I’ll surely blog about it once I have it. 🙂

Even if it’s the last movie adaptation of Batman for Christoper Nolan, I’m still looking forward to the next chapter of this hit movie. I know it will never end coz we need Batman, and for sure fans will protest to Mendiola (hihi). I also believe that Robin will be part of the next Batman Movie and I hope it’s Jordan Gordon-Levitt who will play Batman’s sidekick. Do you think think Mr. Levitt can give justice to the role???  Who will play the new Batman??? Any suggestions???

An APPLE a day keeps the doctor away

Whenever I feel sick, I don’t take a rest or medications. I don’t know why but I will still try to push myself to the limits. I had a flu like 2 weeks ago but I still reported for work with enthusiasm and energy and I still managed to go out and have fun despite the headache and body pain.  Anyway, me and my friend went to Spada Spa and Massage Center, I felt relaxed and relieved but the next day I felt sick again. I wanted to go somewhere and ignore what I was feeling, I texted different people in my phone-book to just go out. I got the first response from someone I just met at the Massage parlor so I decided to go out with him. We met and ate at Kenny Rogers but he was boring me out or maybe I was not really feeling well. Luckily, Apple texted me and wanted to meet up.

 

I even tweeted and asked a friend to eat at our favorite restaurant in Binondo.

I left the guy and met Apple at Robinson Place in Ermita, Manila. It was the first time we went out together. We talked about anything under the sun and had so much fun!

We first went to Chocolate Spoon by Icebergs to have dessert. The last time I’ve been here was like a year ago so I totally forgot the location and had a hard time finding it, even the guards we asked doesn’t have any idea. It was like heaven when we finally found it.

I ordered Chocolate Banana Split Php 238 – didn’t like it!

Apple ordered M&M Rainbow Ice Cream Php 178- this one tastes better!

Afterwards, we went on “Window Shopping”. Saw a lot of great items at a very affordable prices, coz Robinson Manila was on Sale up to 70% off. A lot of fashionable items in Mango and Aldo, thankfully I managed not to buy anything.

Dinner Time

We decided to eat at Soi Thai Restaurant. You know how I love Spicy food especially Thai cuisine. The food there are super delicious and tasty! I loved the ambiance and most especially their staff were friendly and accommodating. The only negative thing that I can say was, during that time it was really hot and I think their AC was broken or something.

Love the Ceiling Lamp

Appetizer

Whenever I go to Thai Restaurant I always order Bagoong Rice – Php 188.

Fried Spring Rolls Php 148

Tom Kha Kai Php 280

Here comes the survey. Sige na nga! Everything was Excellent. 🙂

Meet Apple!!!

We then watched the last full show of Bourne Legacy Starring Jeremy Rener and Rachel Weisz (which I will Blog in the near fututre). We went home at around past 1AM.

So I guess it’s true that an Apple a day keeps the doctor away! Goodbye Headache and Body Pain, I felt bette! Till our next escapade Apple! I had fun!

XOXO

Dark Shadows (Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Eva Green)

I’ve been very busy (as always) this past few days but I think its not too late to update my entry and give my views and opinions about Johnny Depp’s latest movie Dark Shadows.  Anyway, it is still showing in the Philippines.

Dark Shadow is a horror-comedy film directed by Tim Burton. The casting is star-studded with A-Listers like Johnny Depp. Michelle Pfeiffer and the gorgeous Eva Green. Oh, I almost forgot, part of the castings are Helena Bonham CarterJackie Earle HaleyJonny Lee MillerChloë Grace Moretz and Bella Heathcote. Here’s the Dark Shadows official poster.

Dark Shadows Official Poster 2012

So Cliff wanted to watch a movie and we were kinda having a hard time on what movie to watch. Our only option was Dark Shadows by  Johnny Depp (HOT!) vs The Lucky One by Zac Efron (HOTTER!). Obviously, we decided Dark Shadows a film by Tim Burton. Cliff treated me the movie (Thanks Buddy!), then we just bought a Sumo Red Ice Tea from Tokyo Tokyo. Upper Seats were full and few people seating on the lower box. I guess the movie bombed on the Box Office here in the Philippines. Here’s my fair reviews about the film.

Dark Shadows – with it’s title I’m sure most of you will think that, it’s a scary, horror movie, goosebumps with all the screaming and stuff. Unfortunately, I didn’t experience any of that. It’s a movie that should be put behind the SHADOWS. I would not say I hate it, it is a fine (yawn) movie. The movie didn’t scare me at all and the comedy is just broad and ordinary, though there were few people who were laughing at the cinema.  Johnny Depp as  Barnabas Collins was a vampire who was cursed by a witch name  Angelique Bouchard played by Eva Green. Johnny Depp was simply amazing. He is such a versatile actor, he can be a Pirate a Killer a Vampire, he can be whoever he wants, any roles he plays he will give justice to it. Good thing it’s Johnny Depp or the movie would really be suck!

Barnabas Collins

Hypnotizing; one of Mr Depp’s power in the movie.

Why so serious? Don’t like the room and the carpet?

Depp as the Funniest and the Coolest Vampire ever?!

I also Love Eva Green. Not only she is powerful in this movie, but she is Gorgeous and she played her role really well.

I didn’t know that a Witch and a Vampire can make love.

The Hottest Witch

Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed her role well. She looks so classy and elegant in this movie.

Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard

Wonder what happened after  Johnny Depp and Eva Green made love?

A very powerful and sensual love scene.

The Collins Family

Are they really cursed? What a beautiful family!

The manor is really amusing.

Bonggels

Party Time!!!

My Manor

Overall, I dont like the movie. The story, the comedy and the action scenes are pretty normal. It could’ve been a better movie, if they put more actions and thrill to it. It’s a good thing that Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer especially Eva Green did really well, or else this is a waste behind the Shadows! Just save your money and just download it online. Good thing a friend paid for my movie ticket.

So, what do you think of the movie? Leave a comment.

XOXO
