SM Cinema Family Movie Day is back!

This month, SM Cinemas will feature this action-packed movie based from the sentai series – Ultraman Ginga S!

I’ve been a fan of the series since the day it was aired in the 90′s. The Tagalog dubbed series is something that I look forward to. Its action scenes and its storyline is not to be missed, and also the series of Ultraman warriors featured in every series.

The Ginga S movie is actually a sequel to the 2014 TV series that also features past warriors from the Ultraman series. Hikaru and Shou, the men behind Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Victory, join forces to stop the evil forces of Etelgar, an evil space warrior who is using the alien princess Alegar to trap every Ultraman hero in the galaxy.

This is indeed a must-see movie for every Ultraman fan, and for the family too! The english-dubbed movie will be definitely enjoyed by the whole family.

What to expect from One Piece Film: Gold

I’m back!

Hello guys, I’m back from blogging! and I have sooooo much to tell from you guys, from the reason why I’m on hiatus (im only active on twitter and on instagram, follow me!) and on the new discoveries that I’ll be sharing this coming days. :)

But for now, let me share this amazing anime movie that will be showing here soon, One Piece’ 13th movie installment: One Piece Film: Gold.

One Piece Film: Gold – official poster

If you follow the anime series (I only follow them on manga lol!) then this is a must see movie for all fans of the straw hat gang!

On this 13th movie installment, The future king of the pirates Monkey D Luffy, along with Nami, Roronoa Zoro, Sanji, Usopp, Nico Robin, Franky and Tony Tony Chopper went on to another adventure to remember in the fictitious Gran Tesoro-an independent country recognized by the world government that its known for its greatest entertainment.

There, they meet the casino king/devil fruit user Gild Tesoro, who also happens to own and control the island because of the Gol Gol fruit. Tagging along with his crew are named Carina, Dice, Bacarrat and Mr. Tanaka. From there, they enjoy the lavish lifestyle (and their awesome luck) that the fabulous island has to offer, and they will soon discover something underneath that will definitely shocked them all.

Crazy fun, laughter, action and adventure awaits on their the 13th movie, and additional characters and extras are yet to be seen. So expect the unexpected from our ever-gullible Luffy and the straw hat gang!

The anime movie is directed by Hiroaki Miyamoto and illustrated by Eichiro Oda.

One Piece: Gold will be shown in Philippine theaters on August 31. So watch out for it! :D

Thank you, RoRo and TSM

Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo

It’s been the most stressful elections that I’ve ever witnessed. It is also the elections where I am most involved with, joining the volunteers group and keeping up with the feud that is happening with the presidentiables and its supporters.

I’ve never been this affected. This is the first for me. Mar Roxas losing the elections makes me question so many things. But apart from that, I am thankful that I’ve learned so much in many ways – on how the elections made me realize my choices, on the people around me and on how my choices inspire me to better.

I learned how to be more analytical – through reliable facts and figures, on finding credible sources, on where I should look for and for looking at the right balance. There’s too much black propaganda going on and even celebrities are leaning on to the false information, thanks to the trending sites sprawling online. Good thing my job has been helpful for looking at the rightmost side of things, and not on the irrelevant chismis that doesn’t make any sense/ruins one’s reputation. this lesson is closely related to what I’m currently doing on a daily basis, that’s why it’s the most important to me.

They say that “you are who you vote for” – I have already stated my reasons before on why I chose my candidate and I’m sticking to it. I also realize that respect and decency is something that needs to be mutual in everyone, that letting go of some people is the best thing ever (with blessings and support from colleagues of course!) and unfollowing people from my fb timeline gives me an utmost peace of mind.

It has made me feel better – for myself and for others as well. As stated by Bear grills, volunteering is an investment - because of the willingness to reach out to people and to use my talents in these situations. (read the article, I’ve been watching his shows and this makes perfect sense.)

I will still consider them as the top contender for this elections. I really hope that Leni Robredo will be officially proclaimed as the winner and today,  I am happy that Leni officially won the Vice presidential elections (YAY!). Mar Roxas may lost this elections, but his integrity and public service will surely continue, for his outstanding record, skillset and heart is undeniably better than the one who won the highest seat of the land. And I think that this stint will not be his last. I can sense that he’ll be back again soon. I’ll just have to wait for now.

rorololDespite having Du30 as our president-elect, I’m very sure that VP Leni will be a great vice president.  I can imagine different crazy/happy scenarios in the next 6 years, referring to the doodle above of course! :)

I also wanna thank The Silent Majority (TSM) and to the people that I’ve met for the good vibes and for helping me as well during the elections. <3

I’m still hoping for the better things to come. <3
