Today is one of the best Saturdays of the year. Why? Because I finally saw Heneral Luna (FOR FREE!) and unexpectedly saw a certain male celebrity for the 3rd time! What are the odds huh?

Even if my newer smartphone was “dead” in my bag, at least I was able to take decent pics using my old phone!

Cinema ’76

Thanks to Cinema ’76 (in San Juan) for the free screening of Heneral Luna today. Best Philippine holiday event lang for me. haha~ Kahit na i hated seeing the English subs in a Filipino movie (wtf lang tlga mga ganun), pagbigyan na libre naman eh.

Comfy pillow and sofa seats.

Anyway, the movie did not disappoint. Kudos pa rin sa lahat ng gumawa ng sine na yun. It reinforced my hatred for what Aguinaldo did and fellow Pinoys who sold out our own country.

*Rant starts here*

Nakakagalit talaga yung sarili mong kababayan magbebenta sa sariling bayan para lang madali ang buhay nila. Mas gusto pa paalipin kesa paghirapan ayusin ang sariling buhay at ekonomiya? Ano yun di ba? Mga taong walang tunay na pagmamahal sa sariling bayan!

Yung maiisip mo, sakaling totoo ang takbo ng kwento ng sine, bakit ang tanga at duwag ni Aguinaldo, di pa tinanggap yung resignation ni Luna. Di naman pala niya kayang suportahan ang pinakamagaling niyang Heneral pero gusto niyang siya ang mamuno at lumaban para sa bayan. Mga tanga.

Tapos ngayon isipin mo, may mga tao gusto Federalismo daw. Aba bakit di na lang monarkiya ang gawin sa Pilipinas kung gustong magkaron ng disiplina at pagmamahal sa bayan ang mga tao? Gusto niyong maging regionalistic? Gusto niyong humiwalay sa Pilipinas? Asan ang pagka-Pilipino niyo?  Punyeta nakakagalit lang eh. E yung gusto niyong ibenta kayo sa China ng walang kamalay-malay? Tingnan naten ano mangyari pag gusto niyo ng martial law ulet o ng anak ng diktador.

Ang problema kase yung mga hindi masa at edukado hindi bumoboto (o hindi makakaboto) tapos pagrereklamo at paninisi lang din alam. Ganda di ba?

Jusko iligtas niyo kami sa masama Lord!!! Utang na loob baket ang eleksyon ngayon parang matindi at mainit?!?

*Rant ends here*

In other news, nakita ko na naman si Mr. Epy Quizon di ko alam andun pala sha. Baket di ba? Akala ko si Mr. John Arcilla lang andun e panel pala sila. 3rd time na talaga ‘to.

Does this mean anything? Am I missing something here? 1st unexpected sighting was in 2013 (theater forum), 2nd in 2015 (extra sa TV episode ng Imbestigador) and 3rd is today (free movie screening). O di ba? Sosyal. Hahaha~

There must be some opportunity I am not taking here but I don’t know exactly what it is/was. Earlier, I could have talked to Mr. E.A. Rocha (movie producer) or Epy or even Mr. Leo Martinez after the panel Q&A (after the movie screening). An autograph signing and photo op session happened next kaso umuwi na ako.

Madali lang sila siguro makausap because it’s a small venue and close quarters lang. Why not talk to anyone of them right? Easy peasy yun as in. Kaso after the movie, I didn’t want to have their autograph or get a photo op… (Already have an unglamorous pic w/ Epy haller tenkyuberimats).

I guess I didn’t have something ready to talk to them about? Ni hindi nga ako nagtanong sa Q&A even though I felt like I should have asked something political but my tired and sleepy brain couldn’t come up with a good question. Boom panes lang. Tsaka ano na, yung travel TV show plan ko mangyayari pa ba? (Hahaha ewan ko lang, saya lang ng buhay ko eh. Whatever.)

Galing kase ako sa night shift work then I went to the venue after I ate “breakfast”. All I could do was react to anything that happened in the cinema and nothing else. I actually wanted to go home immediately after the movie but stayed on for the Q&A because nobody was leaving! 😛

Ok lang naman, forum session was fun. Also at least nakita kong the movie really serves its purpose of awakening blind and sleeping Filipinos (if not all). Thank God for the movie talaga.

So how about you? How are you spending your Saturday holiday? 🙂

Wow, this is what conversations with my mom over the phone did today – I just realized I’ve been living mostly on my own since college and I don’t regret it one bit. She on the other hand had planned to “wean me off her” when there was actually no need for it back then. Why? Because I was happy to finally be on my own, doing my own thing and all that jazz, living in a secured dorm and doing that bedspace thing. (Thanks grandma!)

Would have been happier if I didn’t have to commute from Taft, Manila to Proj 2-3, QC for 3 years to live/stay with relatives every weekend until I graduated. Psh. Probably would have had a livelier and wilder life eh? Or maybe not.

Oh and I remember the dorm curfew, mygads… hahaha~ I actually feel sorry for waking up the manong guards all those nights but hey I was such a diligent student. XD Staying up late for projects in computer shops? Playing online games, creating artworks and/or doing reports and such until ungodly hours? Uhmhm… that’s me. I actually loved every second of it except for the homework deadlines and all the stress during baby thesis and thesis proper.

Woooh~ baby thesis feels reminds me of the new KDrama I just started watching last night – Cheese in the Trap. Always the leader who almost wants to do everything by herself to get the best grades. Hwaw. But of course I did delegate and yet in the back of my young mind, I judged.

Yes I know exactly how the female protagonist felt when you do your very best, being the perfectionist much back then, only to fail the entire group. Boom panes and uber sakit moment yun, as in, pramis. 😛 Oh well, I’ve learned a lot since then.

Anyway after college I did live with my bros and a “sis-in-law” for 2 yrs, I think, before being TOTALLY on my own (THANK GOD). 2009 – 2013 was the best years of my life as far as I can remember. Too bad I had to stop living on my own after mid-2013 due to mom’s hospital adventure. 😀

This year though I plan on living independently again. Utang na loob pls lang Lord. I will be moving out soon and totally do as I please, thank you very much. Bwahahaha. This should be fun. I can’t wait to be on my own again. Woohooo!

In other news, I’m into temporary tattoos now. Back to my art roots, hurrah! Finally came up with a new product to produce and sell! I’ll be releasing my wearable skin art designs for summer 2016 in a few. Oh yeah! Coming real soon! Abangan! 😀

New FB page in the works too, or not if I change my mind. But do check out and follow my Instagram art page for updates: http://www.instagram.com/art.stephanie.rue. Yay! So exciting!

 

It’s funny how something profound suddenly pops up in our heads when you least expect it. Mine happened a few hours ago.

I’ve always been geeky as far as I can remember. Maybe a bit too intellectual (or feeling scientific minded? XD) but still fascinated by all things in nature that I  find life so fascinating I can’t help but think too much.

And so it happened I was watching (episode 5 of) that 1981 BBC TV series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on YouTube when suddenly a thought came to mind. One that is so simple it’s astonishing I wondered why I haven’t thought of it before.

Part of Douglas Adams’ story deals with a super computer, Deep Thought, created to answer the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything to which it is stated the answer is the number 42. Now what kind of an answer is that, right?

As a follow up, that computer said you have to have the right questions to have the right answer, to which the right question can only be found on Earth which have been destroyed before that question could have been extracted (or something) by the mice.

And then somehow I had to take a pee break and guess what, the answer to the purpose of life came to me: It is to make life better for each other, or for that matter everyone.

Now that doesn’t sound so bad does it? Actually it sounds quite easy…

Uhm, so let’s just leave it at that shall we. I should be preparing to go to mass now. 🙂 Happy Sunday!
