movie watching

i have been watching movies lately.. trying to get inspiration.

Prestige.. great movie! wow! the complex story amazed me.. the editing and direction amazed me even more! past, present, plots then whoa.. that's the story.
the story spoke to me regarding obsession and the blind spot it creates. i checked my heart if i am obssesed and i found that i was'nt i am just bored.. the movie inspired me! excellent!

Happy feet.. sad movie! great songs and singing! cool arrangement supprising! but i was expecting to be entertained.. i was not, it was heavy! i felt green peace and PETA made this movie. i even cried and felt guilty... i wonder if kids felt the same? maybe if the trailer showed the serious part and not only the singing and dancing i wouldn't feel i have been had! after the movie i felt i was fooled.. all in all the movie was long and delayed to get to the point. there was even religous overtones, excumunication, etc. i still wonder what the impact to kids will be? i remember a sad movie i watched when i was a kid.. lost in the sahara dessert.. i felt sad and i enjoyed it because it was up front from begining to end..

did i get my inspiration? yeah.. be upfront and dont put up a front!

Back from the US Tour


been back a few weeks now from our US tour and i finally adjusted to waking up early and sleeping early.. being up in the morning at 6:30 am is a joy and sleeping at 10pm is an extra joy... God gives sleep to His people.. feels good to be able to do a lot of things in the morning.

our tour was so much fun! kitchie and the band were great to be with. they are excellent musicians and so humble.. there is not a tinge of star complex when we were out..

i appreciate the people involved and the producer who took care of us..

i have learned that filipinos are the same everywhere.. truly we are a hospitable race and love feeding our guest!

picture from melot samonte a long time friend! it was such a great show of love for her to drive 6 hours from detroit to meet us. melot thank you!


i am going to india this christmas season until january 8, 2007. Corinne Ching of i love you store, Kitchie Nadal and Andrea Go will be with us. We will be visiting agora, goa, mumbai and new delhi.. what an exciting journey!!

one of my dreams is to be able to see new cultures and experience facets of life. this is not a business trip (a first) but a soul searching trip.. i dont know what i will find but i know i will find a new self and be a fuller person.. a time to re-align myself to what God's purpose is for the coming 2007!
