Movie Date Vol. 27: Despicable Me 3

June 15, 2017

As usual, it was always fun watching this movie. However, for me, it was like other series where it will be hard to surpass the first one’s outcome. I still preferred the first one. But this one, was a story of family and of brotherhood. I liked it that they’ve gotten quite emotional here. Watch it, you may get involved in a dance fight, soon.

Something Happened Vol. 7: The 119th Declaration Of Philippine Independence

When: June 12, 2017

Where: Philippines

What: The 119th Declaration of the Philippine Indepence from Spain since 1898

Philippine President: Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte

There were too many things that have happened and I  wasn’t able to log. But, this time, I wouldn’t let this pass as to where the declaration and the first time the Philippine flag was ever flown, is very close to my heart. It was in Cavite and I’m proud to be a CaviteΓ±a. Ahaha. 

To all the Filipinos, Happy Independence Day!!!!

The Philippine Declaration of Independence Day on June 12, 1898 took place in Cavite El Viejo which we knew now as Kawit, Cavite. But prior, to that date, on May 28, 1898, the Philippine flag was first flown in Alapan, Imus, Cavite. I want to share here what the city government is doing to constantly remind us of this historical event. Hopefully, this can be maintained and will be considered during future developments. 

In this place, the Battle of Alapan took place. It was here that the first Philippine flag was flown. The area that this statue was built is still a vast agricultural land, still far from the city’s on-going developments. Hence, my wish to make this place stay longer if not forever.

The Philippine flags circling the area of the 90-foot flag pole. In this site, happened one of the series of battles in the Philippine Revolution.

The towering height of the 90-foot flag pole stands proud.

A closer look.

Movie Date Vol. 26: Pirates Of The Caribbean Salazar’s Revenge

May 29, 2017

Also known as the Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. I liked this sequel particularly the part where it had tackled a father – daughter story. I had interpreted the acts of Captain Hector Barbossa as that no matter how hard one’s heart is, there will always be a soft spot inside him just like when Captain Barbossa sacrificed himself just to save lives especially the life of his daughter, Carina Smyth.

Movie Date Vol. 25: The Boss Baby

May 09, 2017

I didn’t like the movie that much but still it had some lines that I thought worth noting:

“The road to success is not always a straight line.”

“When you’re used to success it’s always downhill.”

“Either you run the day or the day runs you.”

“Aim away from failure and you’ll always succeed.”

“Tame a ship.”

“There’s plenty of love for everyone.”

Coldplay In A Head Full Of Dreams Tour In Manila

Nov 18, 2016.
It was the start of what we thought could only happen in our dreams. That was the day when Globe, who was one of the main sponsors of the concert, had given a chance its subscribers to get 2 tickets each of our chosen ticket type. You just had to be one of the lucky texters to get first through the line. And, I was. I got 2-guaranteed silver tickets for the Coldplay concert in MOA on April 04, 2017.

April 04, 2017.
We went at the venue at 1130AM, even if the concert is still scheduled at 8PM. We’re not so excited. Hehe. We wouldn’t mind to wait for hours. We knew we were almost there. What was hours compared to years of waiting. We had to mind that this seemed far from reality before. It was just hopes and expectations. A check in my husband’s bucket list to watch Coldplay live had no chance of a probability. But there, it was happening. 

The concert venue was not in our side. It wasn’t the best location for a much anticipated event like this. Leveled grounds, all standing viewers only and a mile away from the stage, as Chris Martin had sung it, it was really such challenging hours. Yet, we were so thrilled. A simple sound check routine, had definitely caused a roar. As we neared to its start, fans started coming and they had quickly grew in numbers. We were suddenly left with only a little space to where we stand. I dared to go out to take a leak but was not successful. I ended up going back to my place and control it until the concert will be over. We were so close, all the viewers, literally. Though, we didn’t know each other, when someone was taking a picture, surely the people in the sides were very friendly to smile and pose for the groupie. It was tiring, actually. Did we have complaints? Yes, of course. But, still, we had to wait. The magical hour will be starting in minutes, as I thought.

What happened next was unexplainable. To be honest, I was there because of my husband. I maybe one of the thousands who didn’t know their songs well, but being there was different. It was rewarding. It felt so surreal. Imagine what a real fan had felt. That maybe was indescribable. I may have fainted, if ever.

Colorful lights, fireworks, great songs, best artists, what more could we asked for. An enchanting night, indeed. An earthquake actually happened that same night. But, maybe only a few felt it. I, personally , thought it was just the rocking concert. That’s how intense the concert was. Intense and beautiful. Definitely, a bucket list item fulfilled.
