“In my experience, Emily, when anything concerns a man, you have to make things very clear. Women love figuring a man out, and we’re very good at it. But men have no interest in figuring us out, isn’t that right, ladies?”—Alexandra Potter’s Me and Mr Darcy
My mom has this habit of making me food slave whenever I stay home. Which is practically everyday. Haha. The pictures will tell you how!:))
Ate dinner at my parents’ room coz I needed to watch Glee’s after-season-break episode (which was such a tear-jerk-er huhu). Can’t watch downstairs; they’re busy with their Munting Heredera-Legacy-Survivor marathon.
“It’s not easy to break out of your comfort zone. People will tear you down; tell you you shouldn’t have bothered in the first place. But let me tell you something: there’s not much of a difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you - both are just making a lot of noise. How you take it, is up to you. Convince yourself they’re cheering for you - you do that, and someday, they will.”—Preggers, Glee S1EP4
“Because you will meet somebody more exceptional than anyone you have yet known. Who will love you as warmly as possible. And who will so completely attract you that you will feel you never really loved before.”—Alexandra Potter’s Me and Mr Darcy
I was so excited to finally watch the movie that after putting the book down, I immediately faced my laptop and watched the almost two-hour film adaptation. And, I must say, it wasn’t at all bad, especially because Anne Hathaway’s in it! Add the gorgeous-yummy (hahaha) Jim Sturgess and their British accents (Anne was really good btw!), and everything was almost perfect.
I say almost because I felt like the story line and the turn of events were quite rushed, which is understandable because, really, it’s hard to fit in a 400+-page book in a two-hour film. What’s good about it was that nothing in the story had been changed, except for tiny details (like the character of Mady not being on the movie, Dex and Sylvie and Callum being friends right away like nothing happened in the movie, but in the book the reconciliation happened in the latter part, and Dex’s daughter saying that her mom is her best friend in the movie, contrary to what she said on the book). The portrayal of the climax was good too - it was exactly what I pictured in my brain. I think it helped that the author of the book, David Nicholls, also did the screenplay.
Today’s the Varsitarian’s birthday, so we had a mass, celebrated by Father Ed, and dinner, c/o Ate Eva’s as usual. :)
Ate Eva’s lechon kawali (or is that liempo??=D) and dila are really superb!
Although I already told my mom not to wait for me anymore, she can’t help but save some food for me. I really love this family, thank You God! ;)
Shakey’s chicken and mojos, plus kiat kiat hihi<3
P.S. Happy 84th birthday, V! Thank you for the pool of opportunities you’ve given me, plus the new friends and contacts I’ve made. May you continue giving wonderful life lessons to wanna-be writers like me. I will always love you and look back at the memories - happy and sad, good and bad - we’ve shared.<3
Contrary to popular belief, we still need to go to school on Thursday even if it’s supposed to be our “free day.” :)) As what my friend Kay said, Never nating na-enjoy ‘yung two days (coz Friday is also our free day) na walang pasok. And sometimes, we need to do stuff on Sundays so it’s like seven days a week of academics and extra-curricular activities (we have whole day Saturday classes), beybe!
Plus, prelims week is ahead so I made sure I have some game plan.
Anyway, Kay and I met up to revise our articles and think of a thesis topic. Yes, we’re still thinking of a topic. Up to now. I’m so proud of us. Hahaha. So, while thinking, we decided to eat at Cow-wow!:P
I had nuggets and Kay ordered spaghetti and I forgot the name of the hotdog. :)))
Then we went at Lover’s Lane to ask help from the patron saint of thesis topics. It worked!!!
When I arrived home at 8 p.m., Ate Lyn, an old family friend back when we were still living in Mandaluyong (I missssssss), and her mom were there so we had dinner together.
Of nilaga and barbeque ribs!
I thank God for my parents who are such natural chefs. I’m so proud of them. And am so ashamed of myself that I don’t even know how to cook rice. Or even operate (if that’s the term) the gas range. Hahaha. But, in time!!=))
