One Day

•January 16, 2012 • Leave a Comment

So I just watched the movie One Day starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. It’s a bit late and I should already be sleeping but I just have to blog about it before I hit the bed.

Anyway, I love the movie. It made me cry at one point but made me smile at the end. It’s about 2 strangers who spent the night together after their graduation. Nothing happened. They just literally slept together but that night led to a wonderful friendship.

The movie is based on a novel by David Nicholls. It showed the events of their lives every July 15th of each year after they met on the same date in 1988. They both run their own lives but they’ve kept in touch for years. When one is in sorrow, he/she turns to the other for support. They obviously have feelings for each other but they just remained friends until the year 2003.

Dexter (Jim) went to visit Emma (Anne) after he had a divorce and that’s when they finally got together as a couple. FINALLY! They were perfect together from then on and as they say, love based on friendship usually results to a good relationship.

However, after 3 years of being together and while they were trying to have kids, Emma died as she got hit by a truck while she was riding her bike to meet Dex. Emma’s death destroyed Dex. It was his father who had opened his eyes and made him realize that he should continue to live his life as if Emma was still alive.

Basically, the movie depicts true love. It shows the typical saying that if you’re meant for each other, then fate will eventually bring you together at some point. However, it also shows that nothing lasts forever. Life is too short to waste opportunities and blessings.

If you like tear-jerking movies, then I highly recommend One Day. I like it not because I enjoy crying over movies but maybe because I’m just a hopeless romantic. ;)

Anyway, I just started reading the novel and I’m excited about it! :)

About A Girl

•August 16, 2011 • 4 Comments

my new craze

Since all my favorite TV series are still on break, I tried to look for another comedy show that I can watch when I get bored and I discovered a relatively new show called About A Girl.

As per the title itself, it’s about a girl in college who ran out of a room/house to live in so she ended in a house with 4 guys as roommates.  It’s funny and entertaining. I like how the 4 guys protect and take care of the girl and how the girl adjusts to the guys.

It only has 13 episodes though and as I was writing this blog, I just discovered that it’s actually a Canadian show and it already ended..too bad.. :(

Gelato @ G.G. Gelati

•July 21, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Last night, my cousin thought of having gelato. So right after dinner, we all went to Croydon in the southern part of Winnipeg to get gelato from G.G. Gelati!

lots of people came in to get gelato

We get to have 2 flavors so I got snickers and caramel!

it was really good!

After getting our gelatos, we just walked on the sidewalk eating. And as we were on our way home, we passed by Tim Hortons! It might not ring a bell, I know, but they say it’s like the national coffee shop of Canada. Everybody goes to Tim Hortons for coffee! They have Starbucks too but apparently, it’s not as famous here compared in Manila. So I will have to try Tim Hortons one day!

New Life…New Challenges

Wow..it’s been awhile since the last time I posted and so many things have happened the last few months. But the major change in my life is…I’m now in CANADA!

Yes, I have already migrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba..landed last July 7, 2011. I had a straight flight from Manila to Vancouver, which took 12 hours then a connecting flight with Air Canada from Vancouver to Winnipeg for another 2 1/2 hours. I hate looonnggg flights! I barely slept and had cramps on my legs the whole time.

Anyway, I am now living in my aunt’s place and they are all so nice to me. They always make me feel at home. I have been to some place since I got here like The Forks.

Fish Festival


Then I watched Transformers 3 for the second time at Silver City.

Free popcorn and drinks every tuesday!!!

I’ve been hanging out with my cousin and her friends too. She’s been bringing me with her when she goes out with her friends but I’m just quiet most of the time. haha. They are all nice but I’m still adjusting and trying to cope up with their topics.

Most of the time I’m just stuck at home, glued to my laptop looking for jobs online. I’ve been applying eversince I got here but haven’t heard anything yet. I’m such a bum!

However, next week I will be attending an Entry Program under the Manitoba Start. It’s basically an orientation program for new immigrants. It will be every morning for a week. After which, I’m scheduled for another seminar, which is the Employment Solutions for Immigrant Youth and it will last for 2 weeks. Hopefully, these seminars can help me get a job.

About the weather, I’m not having a hard time adjusting as of the moment because it’s still summer and it is also hot. It’s just more humid in the Philippines that’s why I tend to sweat more there than here.

What amazes me most is the sunset. The sun sets at almost 10pm. Yes, 8pm 9pm..Mr. Sun is still up!

this is what 8pm looks like

Well, that’s about it I guess. I’ll try to post short updates once in awhile. So see you! :)

On Mozilla Firefox 4…

•April 17, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been a Mozilla Firefox user for years but I never tried to explore its features and add-ons before.  I just use it as a regular browser like as long as I can open the sites, I’m good.

But when the Firefox 4 came out, I took time to explore what it can offer and how it would make my browsing experience easier.  It does have a lot of add-ons and features but of course, it would depend on the user’s needs.

My favorites are Persona, App Tabs, Apture Highlights, and the one where you can do a screenshot and annotate it at the same time (i forgot the name).

PERSONA is basically dressing up your browser.  There are a lot of themes to choose from.  It can be your favorite singer, color, or favorite tv show!  My mood practically lit up every time I open my firefox browser because of my chosen theme (too bad I can’t apply it at work).



APP TABS is giving a permanent home to websites that you always open like a permanent tab.  But aside from it, there are more great features on Tabs worth checking out.

APTURE HIGHLIGHTS  is when you highlight a phrase to get instant information from Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, and more without opening a new page.


The above screenshot was created with the use of the other add-on I like (forgot the name..sorry).  Once you have the shot, you can annotate it right away.  See the red circle and arrow on the above picture?  So cool!

To make the story short, I am enjoying Firefox 4!  Download/Upgrade now!
