Who is Kid Kulafu?

I rarely watch Filipino flick because sometimes the storyline is too cheap and weak. I'm tired of watching Rom-Com unless it is a Piolo or John Lloyd flick :) LOL

With less than seven days, we are looking forward for the battle of the Century - the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight on May 2.

Buboy Villar as the young Manny or better known as "Kid Kulafu" is a biopic focuses the life of Manny, 15 years ago.

A flick by Paul Soriano, Kid Kulafu was Pacquiao's nickname when he started fighting in the ring. The name actually sounds familiar as this is a famous label of wine and where He worked to collect bottles in exchange for money.

Alessandra de Rossi is the young Dionisia, a strict God-fearing mother who did not approve Manny to learn boxing and Cesar Montano, a very supportive Uncle and gave Manny a chance to…

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”
-Abraham Lincoln

If you watched the historical epic flick, Lincoln wherein Daniel Day-Lewis starred as United States President Abraham Lincoln so this blog post is dedicated to you.

It was in 2012 when the movie was shown in theaters. We were rewarded to watched this epic drama after our office and though it was not the usual type of storyline which was more of a conversation type movie - you'll get bored.

But not me - his life becomes an inspiration to everybody. All of his words were meaningful. Ika nga, "hugot" quotes.

Where did you celebrate Easter Sunday? while kids were very busy searching for Easter eggs, some families were celebrating in their homes orwent out to dine like us.



I have been craving for "Chicken Inasal," good timing - we went to Bacolod Chicken Haus located in N Lincoln ave in Chicago.

Chicken Inasal is one a of the most popular dish in the Philippines (in Bacolod specifically). I remembered during my lunch break I usually go to Mang Inasal because the food is very affordable and unli rice :)



Bacolod Chicken Haus in Chicago is very comfy. Feels like home. Maskaras were displayed that adds color to the venue. People were patiently waiting for their turn because the venue is fullybooked on that time.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday - My first experience to practice the tradition of visiting seven churches in USA. It was explain to us that "seven churches" were meant to be the seven stations that were made by Jesus on his way to Calvary:

1st visit Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 22: 39-46)
2nd Visit: Jesus bound and taken before Annas (John 18: 19-22)
3rd Visit: Jesus taken before the High Priest, Caiaphas (Matthew 26: 63-65)
4th Visit: Jesus taken before Pilate (John 18,35-37)
5th Visit: Jesus taken before Herod (Luke 23: 8-9; 11)
6th Visit: Jesus taken before Pilate again (Matthew 27: 22-26)
7th Visit: Jesus given the crown of thorns and led to his crucifixion (Matthew 27: 27-31)
