She's The One Movie Quotes

She's the girl you never saw. She's the girl you never heard. She's the girl you never wanted... Until someone else did. Will it take losing her for you to realize that she's the one?

She's The One is the latest movie released by Star Cinema on October 16, 2013 starring Bea Alonzo, Dingdong Dantes and Enrique Gil. Just like all other films produced by Star Cinema, this new project was a huge success. As I always say, "They did it again!"

The movie is all about a story that combines the excitement of an unexpected romance with the epiphany that comes with finding the one person you can’t live without. The film is woven around the idea of an “epiphany”, or that one moment in life when we finally find the answer that will change everything. But we may find ourselves asking, how far are we willing to go when we do?

The Earthquake that Destroyed the Heritage Churches

We were all devastated when we learned that the some of the oldest Churches in the Philippines were destroyed by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Cebu and Bohol. These churches in the Visayas region were part of our rich history. For the past few years, many of us had the chance to visit these churches and admire its magnificence. Just last summer, my parents and I went to the beautiful island of Bohol. Baclayon Church (The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception) was one of my most favorite places there and seeing its photos after the catastrophe made me feel bad. The Loboc (Church of San Pedro), Loay and Dauis (Church of Our Lady of Assumption) churches were also reported as heavily damaged.

Enjoying the Benefits of Foodie Culture

The last couple decades in America have involved the increasing popularity of foodie culture. From the proliferation of cooking TV shows to entire websites dedicated to food photography to the popularity of food blogging, this focus on food continues to grow. Despite gripes about "hipster" restaurants, there are many benefits brought on by the foodie culture.

Most notably, the increasingly sophisticated tastes of the general population have driven the food production sector to produce a wide selection of high-quality products with diverse flavors and uses. Additionally, store shelves are filled with numerous choices for those with particular diets such as gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan. More people are learning how to cook and create culinary masterpieces in their own kitchens. If the foodie culture has captivated you, here are some fun ways to enjoy it in your own life.

It Will Always Be Blair and Serena

If you check my blog archives, you will see that some of my posts are all about my favorite TV series - Gossip Girl. It is the first show that made me stay up all night in my old dormitory room. When I was still hooked with GG, I prefer to have a marathon on Saturday nights instead of going out with my college buddies. I can also remember going home early after my classes because I want to catch up with the episodes. There are just so many reasons to love Gossip Girl!

Two of my favorite characters are Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen who played as best friends since high school. They shared several happy, sad, embarrassing and winning moments. They also have so many things in common. One of those is being fashionable. They have the ability to catch everyone's attention by their dresses, shoes, bags and signature looks.

"The Goal is to Become a Lawyer..."

Law school may be a jealous mistress but at the end of the day, I find myself happy with her. 

There are days when I just want to give up and run away. Sometimes, I wish I could just drop everything and pursue another dream like traveling to different places or writing my own book. No matter what I do, I always find myself coming back to law school. It amazes me how I wake up every single day feeling excited with school and everything related to it. Even if I haven't read the assigned cases or provisions, I still look forward to attending my classes. Is it because of my supportive classmates, sweet org mates or super-strict-yet-highly-inspiring professors? Or simply because I want to become a lawyer? Well, whatever the reason is I'm glad that I'm still here.

What It Means to Share: Dinner for a Cause

"You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you."

The best feeling in this world is being able to share what we have to those who are in need. These people do not need to beg or ask something from us before we offer them the help that they deserve. As members of a community, we have to know the importance of giving back. It is our duty to share our blessings. We must learn the values of "sharing" and "selflessness."

For this, I am inviting all of you to support the Dinner for a Cause organized by one of my good friends in Davao Bloggers Society. Naprey Almario, the man behind the rolling chair, has been doing charity works for the past few years. Yes, he never stops giving back and that is the reason why I truly consider him as an inspiration.

I feel blessed. Things are exactly happening the way I want them to be. I am glad that I know how to be contented with what I have in my life and that more blessings are coming my way. I am happy and it's all that matters. So, why am I excited for the new month?

The Cute and Stylish Smartphone Called Gionee

As everyone knows, I’m not really your expert go-to-chic as far as gadgets and latest devices are concerned. But when I saw this incredibly cute and classy new smartphone brand a friend of mine was using, I suddenly had this excited urge to do a brief review on its features, beyond my usual gadget case reviews, with of course my reliable cappuccino on the side.
