Apl de Ap Mission and Vision for Clark Field Pampangga

Once upon a time, decades ago, when people were downright backward and racist as I put it. I was often teased and experienced “bullying” (when I don’t know the word yet) because I experienced name-calling to its meanest sense, when they call me Negra, Baluga and what nots because I was dark-skinned (morena) and being tan when colonial mentality was in, is out and ugly.  So, excuse me, and this very personal note I will say about a photograph of me and some indigenous people of Capas in  Pampangga the Aetas and Ambelling.  “Ngayon lang ako naging pinakamaputi sa pichur!”

Some of you may give a remark that I am so mean and racist to say that about this picture. You may say that because you are not me and you have not experienced the humiliation I felt when I was being teased as ugly coz I’m dark.  This is just the same as veing teased as fat or short or whatever label you got as a child. Take a look at this pic, I am free from all your biases and personal preferences because we are all gorgeous.

Yes, that is Apl de Ap and the photo was taken at Matam-Ih Restaurant in Clark.  Apl was there to forge an agreement with the Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) Clark with his Apl Tree Foundation and investors from Singapore.

Apl wants to help develop and promote his visionary project with Clark to become the Queen City of the North.  Together with BCDA and his business investors they will make Claek  the tech hub of Southeast Asia as well as the center of education, technology, and entertainment.

It is great to know that someone who is already as successful and popular as Apl de Ap would want to come back to his roots and help.  I wish him the best and I support his advocacy because part if developing Clark he promises to take care of the indigenous folks and give them an equal opportunity. Kudos to you!

Apl said he also plans to bring a Lalapalooza like event gere in the Philippines and it will happen in Clark!  So watch out!  I can imagine with his influence the type of talents and entertainment people he can bring!

Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Gown

Angelina Jolie Wedding gown

I haven’t blogged about any wedding or wedding gowns in awhile. I seem to have lost interest for some reason. But when I saw Angelina Jolie’s weddding gown I have to post about it! Angelina Jolie Wedding gown I’m grabb a photo from the cover of People’s Magazine and Hello Magazine who got exclusive rights to take photos during the weddjng and use photos from the official wedding photographer. Here’s the gown Angelina Jolie's wedding gownAngelina Jolie's wedding gownAngelina Jolie and Vrad Pitt surprise wedding happened last month! Not too much noise abouy it until the photo release! Damn! 2014-09-02 18.01.56

The best part about the wedding gown , a custom-made ivory silk Atelier Versace wedding gown, was the trail and veil, it has embroidery of Brangelina kids doodles and artworks!  Super nice! While some critics say that the embroidery was not appropriate for a wedding gown, I think the critics will have to accept the fact that it is not their wedding and wedding dress to criticize.  Weddings are a persona and family affair and people directly involved in the wedding can do whatever they want to make it special for them and not to please spectators! How about you, what do you think of Angelina’s bridal gown?

When You’re Sad Talk About It, Farewell Robin Williams

Robin Williams

He’s been working for four decades, making people laugh, making people cry, entertaining and making us all feel good inside ultimately. But little did we know Robin Williams is battling sadness to the extreme. Just a month after he checked himself back in the rehab to treat his depression that’s creeping in again. Unfortunately, his sadness was way too deep that it was not treated that he have to take his own life.

Robin Williams
He must have felt the same as he said in one of his movies World’s Greates Dad,he felt so alone that he felt he has noting to live for anymore. “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.”

There’s one big lesson to learn about his death though, that the world should talk about, about suicide and depression and being selfish and self-contained.

When someone decides to take his own life , it takes a lot of courage and cowardliness behind it. Courage because you would rather take the pain of a slow death, feeling your own life leaving you. Coward because you gave up on life and having the chance to live it to the fullest and winning and dying in a less dreadful manner.

While the family of Robin Williams wishes to not discuss much on how he died, I think it is important that it is discussed so there will be no losses like him anymore. That people should always make time for every people in the world and not be a stranger. When someone feels sad, immediately talk to him/her and ask. He may just need someone to talk to to release and get it out of his system. He just need one person to listen, to assure him that he is important,that he is loved.

When you are sad, talk about it, don’t avoid it.  Find someone to talk about what makes you sad.  Or shout it out on the internet!  You may get silly responses but I’m sure one will come out to be really sincere to hear you out and chat it out.

I will miss Robin Williams and the missing will get worst as apparently there are four movies to be released starring him The Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (3rd installment of the Night at the Museum movies) is supposed to be released December 19! 20th Century Fox had also been developing a sequel to Williams’ 1993 hit “Mrs. Doubtfire,” though the actor had yet to read a script. Then there’s Merry Friggin Christmas to be shown this Holidays and Boulevard.

Farewell Robin Williams! I pray your soul to be happy now wherever you are. May you rest in peace.

Btw, What is your favorite Robin Williams movie? Mine is BiCentennial Man and Patch Adams.

My ‘The Canyons’ Movie Review

The Canyons movie Review

When I went to the cinema tonight to watch The Canyons advanced screening at SM Mall of Asia, I have no idea what the movie was all about. All I know is that it stars Lindsay Lohan and James Deen and that it won the Best Screenplay at the Melbourne Movie Festival, so I thought it must be good to win an award.

IMG_20140811_223502
Well, I was shocked by the movie, a lot! There were a lot of breast exposures and hmmm very adult sex scenes that I did not expect. I guess because the Lindsay Lohan I was expecting to see was totally different from what I just saw. I have never seen her like this ever, but I do know she has lived a scandalous and messed up life since maybe after Mean Girls and she did drugs and was in and out of the rehab.

Lindsay Lohan was the Co-Producer of yhe movie but I think she was still under the influence when she seen preview of this or the final edit was given to her. It was amateurly made kinda like a B movie, low-budget film. Although I can’t help but notice the beautiful mountainside house they used and the nice cars and brand exposures like Nokia and Facebook!

It is Rated R16 but MTRCB but I think it shoukd be R18.

It is not a movie you watch with the family or a movie you wanna see on a first date as well.

I will give the movie a 2 out of 5 for screwing with my mind because if the controversial ending, the nice house, Nokia and trying to be up with the times with the presence of Facebook, hacking, camcording, dating apps, and that text TV.

Thanks SM Lifestyle for the invite. The Canyons is showing on Thursday on select SM Cinemas.

My Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review and Reflections

Guardians of the Galaxy movie review

The Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most fun Marvel movies to date.  The humor and the delivery of punch lines are impeccable.  The action scenes are engaging and exciting.  I think this is one of the Best Sci-Fi comedy movie since maybe Fantastic 4 and The Avengers.

My favorite part was the biggest fight scenes that happen up in the air!  It was awesome!  Stunts was great CGI’s was well made. Makeup and prosthetic was flawless.  Costume was so-so.  But I think the story line in the film and the characters personality stayed true to the comic version although with a little cinematic adjustment that is fit for a movie.  All I can say is “I AM GROOT!”

Well, unless you have seen the movie, you won’t get what the last three words I just said from my second paragraph. So I say watch it.   It is fun , not boring, editing fitted my expectations it was fast phased not much wasted scenes and everything was needed to build up the entire plot of the story. It did not bring a plateau of emotions but instead built the feeling up to the end.  Even with the dancing groot (oops!)

If you look deep into the movie without making full reference to the comic version.  The story plot was mainly about the main characters re-purposing their life or finding deeper meaning to their life and meeting true friends or people who will stand by them no matter what

Guardians of the Galaxy movie review

Groot is to love,  Rocket is so adorable, not really that impressed with Star-Lord but hey he is the main guy in the movie who brings humanity in the movie. Gamora is the hot fierce leading lady in the movie. and Drax is the funny thesaurus.  Together they make great team.  I love how their characters synced so well it was fun to see them in one screen interacting. The actors and and actresses commissioned for the big roles did very well.

Watch it you won’t get disappointed. And yeah don’t expect too much on the easter egg.  But there is one right after the credits rolled out.

SO my rating being 5 the highest I give it a 4.5 . There are rooms for improvement like the costumes it was not so futuristic as it should be. But it is very Marvevl I like it. I hope the Part 2 will be way much better. I pity The Collector btw haha. I feel for him.
