GT: A Movie To Watch With Enemy

A movie that's scary, that's what came into my mind after reading the theme today at Girls Talk! It should be a movie that would scare my enemy (as if I am not scared with scary movies). I think of The Craft since I am  a little witch myself possessing few vampiric powers.
Sarah Bailey, a sixteen year old troubled teenager with a painful past and a history of suicidal tendencies and hallucinations, moves to L.A. with her father and stepmother to start a new life - and is enrolled into a Catholic school. It is at school that she comes into contact with three unlikely friends, Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle, all who are socially outcast with various problems in their lives that they wish they could fix. Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle dabble in occult practices, and when they notice Sarah has the powers of a natural witch, they talk her into joining their coven. When Sarah joins, they soon realize that with a fourth witch in the coven they can begin to cast spells they couldn't before, and begin to amend all the things wrong in their lives - but like everything else in life - things come with a price. Source.

If that enemy of mine won't still be scared with this movie, then it's my time to show my supernatural power - a power combination of a witch and a vampire. I can easily scare my enemy if ever. All I need to do is take my 4 false front teeth off and give my enemy the grin that my enemy will always remember in his/her sleep. No one forgets my long sharp fangs.Haha!

Pink Fashion Umbrellas

It's been raining here in the Philippines and it simply means getting your laundry dry in a day is very impossible but it's nice because it cools the temperature down and it makes me sleep good. Also, bringing an umbrella with you wherever you go is a must, whether you have a car or not because you still have to walk from the car park to the market area, to the school gate or to the department store. Mentioning about bringing umbrella, I found pink fashionable umbrellas you would love to have at umbrellas.net.
This one is a classic style umbrella with a real bamboo hook handle, auto opening mechanism, and silver tips and finial. It has shades of bright red and hot pink that is just so lovely. It contrasts the gloomy and dark skies. It has  35" coverage and 30" length. This cost $36.00. 
Let the rain be a part of your canopy. If you want to see the rain drops while walking on the wet roads, this adult bubble umbrella of clear dome and pink trim would be great. I haven't had an umbrella like this but I don't mind owning one. This umbrella features easy slide opening and closing mechanism with a 34" coverage and 37" length. This costs $40.00

Maria Venus Raj In The Magic 5

I watched the ABS-CBN airing of Miss Universe 2010 yesterday to show my support for Venus Raj who presented the Philippine Republic on that major event. Hearing the people's applauds seemed like Venus won almost all the audience hearts inside Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas where the pageant was held. With the graceful sway and shake of her arms and hips, to add up that beautiful smile of hers, she deserved the applauds.


I had a feeling she could win the crown for she really carried herself gracefully, not to mention being the crowd's favorite. When her name was called in the magic ten down to the magic five, I was joyed. and thought she could possibly win the the crown. My eyes were all hooked up when question and answer portion came. I was anticipating for Venus' turn to face her picked judge. I felt nervous for her as if I was the one on stage waiting for the question. So the question was asked but it was sad to say her answer was kind of ironic. At the end of the pageant, she was announced 4th runner up. Although she didn't win that glittery crown, she still brings honor to our country and of course, an accomplishment to herself for going that far.I am so proud of her!

Unforgettable Celebrity: Donna Cruz

Where is she? My sisters and I wonder where our Idol is at right now? She must be quitting the showbiz life and embrace the mother's life for good. I am always a fan of her acting and singing. I even have a cassette tape of all her songs back when I was in high school when CD was not that popular yet. My sisters and I love singing her songs entitled I can, Wish, and I will be here to stay. I've watched her movies too including Kadenang Bulaklak, Isang Tanong Isang Sagot with Jason Everly, Do Re Mi, Love Notes, and  a lot more. 


Here are some info about her:
Donna Cruz Yrastorza-Larrazabal (born February 14, 1977) better known by her stage name Donna Cruz, is a Filipina pop singer and actress. She comes from the Cruz clan which include celebrities Sheryl Cruz, Geneva Cruz and Sunshine Cruz, her cousins.

Donna began her recording career at age 13. She released her first self-titled album containing the hits "Kapag Tumibok Ang Puso", "Rain" and "Boy (I Love You)," in which she won Best New Artist in the 1992 Awit Awards. Prior to signing a recording contract with Viva Records, she joined the singing contest Bulilit Bagong Kampeon where she emerged as the grand champion in 1988. She also became the grand prix champion along with Timothy Villegas of Ryan Cayabyab's 14K in the Mermaid International Children's Song Festival in Hiroshima, Japan. She was also a grand finalist in the Little Miss Philippines on Eat Bulaga.

After the successful release of her debut album, Cruz embarked on her first movie, playing the girlfriend of Smokey Mountain member Tony Lambino, in the remake of Darna. It was in this movie that she was officially launched as an actress.

A year after launching her debut album, she released another LP entitled Kurot Sa Puso. Though it proved to be less successful than her debut, it enabled her to launch herself as one of the most sought-after icons of 1990s. Two years later, she released her third solo album, Langit Na Naman which received a gold award. Source.

GT: The 3 Chies' Favorite Movie

There is only one movie that we, the three Chies, love watching over and over and over again. It is the most of the most favorite movie we have. It is the movie that brought us to a flood of tears the first time we watched it together. Thanks to the person who let us borrow the VHS tape.  We will never get tired watching this movie although it is kind of old since I was only 7 year old when this movie first came out on 1993. How we wish we were able to see this movie in the big screen. Ok, I guess I have to say what movie it is. Well, it is Kadenang Bulaklak.
Do you still remember Jasmin, Baby, Violy and Daisy in this movie? For sure most of you have seen this movie already and I am sure you've cried a lot as well. To those who haven't seen this movie yet, just check  PBO or Cinema 1 from time to time, it will surely be on there, I just don't know when though. Or borrow a VHS tape of this movie from your friends if you don't have. Make sure you will gather all your sisters together in front the TV and don't forget to grab a roll of paper towel or better yet a couple of handkerchiefs. If you have no paper towel and handkerchief, your tshirt works. 

Kadenang Bulaklak by the way is a story of the 4 sisters who were separated at their young age after their parents died on a bus accident. When they grew up, they were united by a song that their mother taught them.

I read recently that ABSCBN will do a remake of the movie, Kadenang Bulaklak to be aired on prime time bida to be starred by Judy Ann Santos as Jasmin, Angelica Panganiban as Baby who also played the role of a young Baby in Kadenang Bulaklak, Sarah Geronimo as Violy and Erich Gonzales as Daisy or Tricia.

Wardrobe Wednesday #6

I have wanted to post this picture of my younger sister Chem in a blog post but couldn’t find time. Well, since it is Wardrobe Wednesday, today is a perfect day to show her here. She is just so lovely in this picture having a perfect make up and hairdo by my gay friend. I can always rely on that friend. He even was the one who did my hair and make up on my wedding day.

Back to Chem in this picture, this was taken on their induction party held at Top Plaza Hotel in Dipolog City when she was still in school taking up BS Accountancy. She was wearing a long halter gown that we rented for only 250 php. Isn’t it cheap? But look at her? It looks like her over-all look cost a fortune.

Rihanna Turns Red?

I received an email with a headline "Rihanna Turns Red". I was like, knitted my brows and asked myself "what was that about?". Did Rihanna really turned red as in apple red? So, I then click on the link provided at the email sent to me and oh, it is her hair that turned red, awfully red! What was she thinking when she colored her hair red and with this length? Oh well, I never really like her hairstyles and it is not her fault if I don't like it. It just her style and me and the rest of the people who do not like her style have nothing to do but just watch her and listen to hair her songs. Just rock on Rihanna!

GT: A Movie To Watch With Your Hubby

It is still reel time in Girls Talk! This time though, we will be talking  about  a best movie to watch with our husband or boyfriend if not married. The very first movie that hubby and I watched back in 2006 ,when we were still in a stage of getting to know each other, was a nerve shocking action movie entitled Crank starred by Jason Statham. Obviously not an ideal movie for lovers to watch so it is not what I am going to refer to you. 


So what is it Chie? Hmmn, I am thinking about My Sassy Girl. No, not the Korean and original version of My Sassy Girl because we haven't seen it yet. I am referring to the American remake starring Elisha Cuthbert and Jesse Bradford. That's right! The movie may not be that intense. I mean the stars lacked in emotion in the movie. I don't know but it's what I've seen and felt but don't get me wrong, it is a cute movie. To those who haven't seen this movie yet, this is great to watch for young lovers or those who are newly dating because of its romantic, dramatic and comedy scenes. You'll surely won't be bored in front your television.

The reason why I picked this movie though is that this is the very first cute chick flick movie that hubby and I watched together. As in we were locked. Imagine the two of us cuddled in front the TV. You can never see my husband setting in front the TV when a chick flick movie is on, never!  But this movie for some reason, he stayed seated under me, or maybe because he couldn't get up for I was sitting on his lap?. Hmn? And oh, would you believe if I tell you that this is the very first chick flick movie ever, as in ever that made my husband cry? Well, of course I cried too but it's funny seeing your husband sniffling especially towards the end of the movie. What made it more funny was his alibi, he said there was a mosquito in his eyes. As if a mosquito can give him colds.

Unforgettable Celebrity: Antoinette Taus

I came up with this idea of posting or featuring an actress, a celebrity, a TV personality or whatever you call  it every Sunday that is unforgettable for me. This idea came up after watching Antoinette Taus on one of her movies on Cinema 1. Being in my top list as the most graceful actress, I would like to start with Antoinette Taus since I missed her a lot on TV. 

Antoinette Taus
Born to an American father and a Filipino mother, she burst into the Philippine music/movie/ television industry at the tender age of 4. She starred in her own movies, TV shows, stage plays, musicals and released a number of albums of which her debut received a Gold Record Award. After dominating Philippine show business for almost 15 years, she has ventured into the land of dreams to conquer Hollywood. As an actress, at the age of 13,she was the youngest to ever be nominated for best supporting actress by the Film Academy of the Philippines. She continued on to star in top rated soap operas, sitcoms and films. Her music has continued to progress through the years with varying vocal styles ranging from broad way to Pop and R&B. Tiny as she may be, her voice and stage presence are larger than life. Source
I’ve been her fan since I started watching her on TV  in TGIS (Thank God It's Sabado) with Dingdong Dantes. Then there came their movie that heated up their love team. I watched all their movies together and some of Antonette Taus’s old movies before their love team. I can still remember how I giggled everytime I watched the two of them in romantic scenes. Their love team was like a storm that hit every young hearts including mine. Not only that I love Antoinette Taus acting, I also love her lovely voice. I used to sing along with her every time any of her songs is played on our FM radio back then.

Anyway, while searching on some recent info about Antoinette Taus, I came across Antoinette Taus twitter. Of course I followed her. I do hope it is really her behind that account though. I also came across a site that claims to be Antoinette Taus original fan site. From there you can read few personal information about her. I do miss her acting a lot! I hope she'll come back rocking on Cinema and TV screens again.

GT: A Movie To Watch with Friends

It is reel time in Girls Talk this month so it means we will be talking about movies. This week, the Girls Talkers are going to talk, actually recommend a great movie to watch with a friend or friends. Each of us has our own tastes and findings when it comes to not only movies, but to everything. So for my share, I recommend a movie to watch with your friends entitled "The Hot Chick". That is if you haven't seen it yet. 
Not only this movie is humorous, giggling and thrilling but also challenging to the friendship when the lead actress of the movie convinced her friends that it was her when she turned into a hottest man-chick ever lived in the person of Rob Schneider. The movie shows that true friends know you deep within not through what they see physically. This is surely an enjoyable movie to watch with friends no matter where your gender fall. With Rob in the movie? Oh yes!
