Movie Date Vol. 34: Fifty Shades Freed

Feb 09, 2018

To complete the series, we went out to see the third and final chapter of the movie based on the novel written by E.L. James. I remembered, when I was reading the book I loved its last installment but it didn’t feel the same way in this movie. For me, it was good but it’s missing a piece.


Movie Date Vol. 33: Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle

Jan 21, 2018

I was scared.

I’m not sure why this is my memory of the previous Jumanji movie. I traced back when it was first released. It was on 1995. Back then, I was already in my teen years. But, still, I was scared. I know. It is silly!

Then, there was this 2017 Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie. I went out to see this with the kids. I had no idea how this new movie will run but I was thinking, it could probably be the same way as before. So, it started. How come, I wasn’t scared. How come the kids were laughing about it. How come I was enjoying it. It was no longer a memory of anxiety but it is now replaced with cheerfulness. The previous one could have bolder and greater adventures but what they showcased now was already enough for me.

Haha. I am one scaredy human! Special thanks to our sister in church community for sharing us the tickets.

My Current Relief Aid

I tend to like these pain relief rubs nowadays. Do they really define my age? A big HAHA. I used to ignore these types. But now, I found myself interested. Essential oils, scented balms, air diffuser, something that could bring peace and calmness. These are one of my things now. Am I alone with this feeling? I hope not. Raise your hand if you’re also having new tastes or recently changing your choices. We’re, literally, aging. Maturing, I mean. That’s why I got to love these rubs.

This is, by far, the preferred scent at home. This smelled like bubblegum.

If you like something strong and love it more than the sweet scent, this mint flavor could be best for you.

This one is for calmness and a good night sleep.

I think, this come in between the sweet ‘Energy’ and the minty ‘Oliva Organica’.

Work In Progress No. 8: Super Blue Blood Moon

A continuous effort to improve my skill…on my way to 10,000 hours of photography, to success and to great photography.


It was a rare event that happened in our lifetime, to have witnessed a super blue blood moon.

To remind myself:

Blue Moon, a second full moon in a calendar month

Super Moon, when the moon is unusually close to Earth, making it bigger and brighter

Blood moon, a moment during an eclipse when the moon appears red

I never wasted this opportunity. I put out my gears and tried to capture my best shots.

It was past 8PM, Philippine time, I started. I didn’t catch the super blue moon that much. While I was getting my best shot, slowly I can see that the moon was turning red. But, I wasn’t successful. I didn’t like my shots. Maybe, I took around or more than hundred shots. It wasn’t easy. It was trial and error. But, luckily I took a few that I can say that I got it.


This was taken a day after the happening of Super Blue Blood Moon. It was too bright that I couldn’t help but capture it, as well.

In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 25: Ramen 


Ikkuryo Fukuoka Spicy Tonbanjan Tonkotsu. This was a set meal. It’s good for it’s price, actually. For Php299, you’ll be able to get enough  serving of ramen, chicken karaage and coleslaw in the sides. This got to have a thumbs up!
