As we were waving our lightsticks (FYI, their shoes were glowing too!) - thanks to our friends who brought their 'green lightsticks' --- Finally, THEY suddenly noticed it and threw a big WAVE. AJ, Nick, Howie and Brian, gave a 'remarkable' sign of appreciation to us until the 'ushers' caught our attention and told us that LIGHTSTICKS WERE NOT ALLOWED.
We were amazed and confused. This is the first time that 'props' weren't allowed. Oh well, le…

Miss You Like Crazy, a tear-jerker and a thought-provoking romantic drama
Rachelle Siazon, ABS-CBN.com

Is there really such a thing as right time when it comes to falling in love? This is what Star Cinema’s latest offering Miss You Like Crazy is all about. It asks about life’s mysteries that would only be answered if you’ve given it a try. It dares you to be brave enough to fight for your love and wait until destiny itself conspires to make things right no matter how long it takes. It teaches you that before you commit to a person, it’s because he/she is the one your heart desires and not because you’re just settling to what’s available and convenient. But ultimately, it tells you that a happy ending is possible only if two people in love work hard to stay that way. Otherwise, both parties may be subjected to a lifetime of sorrow and regret.

Without giving away the specific plot of the story, you’d find that there lies the beauty of watching Miss You Like Crazy because it keeps you guess…

MEDITATION : THE INNER SMILE

Smile, going back to a moment when you felt truly happy and content. Bring that feeling up into your whole body and then use this same smile to smile at yourself. You can choose an area that is giving you trouble: is it your digestion, your back or your shoulder? It could be used step by step for your entire body from your fingers to your toes, or directed to a specific problem area. Every time your shoulde…

LOVE HAPPENS

JENNIFER ANISTON FINDS THE RIGHT LOVE AT THE WRONG TIME
IN “LOVE HAPPENS”

Who doesn’t want to fall in love? Probably people who have been jaded by it. Or it could be those whose relationships were the best thing that ever happened to them only to have their beloved taken away. Love Happens, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart, is about having a chance to love again, but past hurts cause the hearts to hesitate.

Dr. Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart) is a successful self-help author who gives advice on how to deal with the loss of a loved one. While holding a seminar, he meets Eloise Chandler (Jennifer Aniston), and they become attracted to each other. However, Burke secretly hasn’t moved on from the death of his wife, and Eloise has sworn off men. As each struggles with the hurt of love and loss, they realize that they need to let go of the past to have a future together.

Love Happens is the directorial debut of Brandon Camp (Dragonfly, TV series John Doe), who has also dealt with loss …

Miscommunication or NO Communication?

I am not sure of this but since I've read that my brother, Azrael was misinformed about the Presscon, I might also share the same views since I also saw on his INBOX about the details of the event. And turn an exciting event into a nightmare.

We've been debating since we are also attending other activities (Oh well, it's pretty obvious - Arts N Music festival in Megamall since we've been supporting this event for years).

It's really frustrating and I understand the feeling -- Although am not really interested to cover the Presscon since I know the venue is too far. I was surprised when I opened my inbox and saw this plurk message as well as the blog link. Upon reading the blog, entitled - 4 MINUTE FAIL

Was this a MISCOMMUNICATION OR NO COMMUNICATION?

hahaha. I would rather stay at Megatrade for the Arts and Music Festival and Support OUR OWN FILIPINO ARTISTS....

That's all.
