Now I know were better than ever. That when we look back, we’ll just laugh about every disagreement that we fought about. I never thought that a total stranger would mean this much to me. And I’m so glad he did. Every heartache was worth it because it finally led me to him.
I’m so glad I’ve found someone who treats me like a princess every day. Someone consistent of how he really feels for me. The only guy who knows my worth and even thinks I amount more than that. And someone whom I can see my future with, good or bad.
Happy Fourth Month my Baby Jeff! Thanks for the four wonderful months and more. I super love you much!

As the Americans tried to intimidate and put down Chinese Boxing, one of the greatest leaders in martial arts, Hung Jan Nam (Sammo Hung Kam-Bo) challenged Twister, a British boxer to fight with him to honor their tradition. But since they are of a different practice, Hung Jan Nam died in vain while fighting for their art.
Master IP, a true advocate of the Chinese culture, meanwhile challenged Twister and the Americans that he will have to fight him to earn the respect that the martial arts have been trying to empower for centuries, and to take vengeance the loss of one of the great leaders of the martial arts.
Will IP Man triumph over the arrogant Americans? Or will he also be crushed like dirt by the foreigners who came to their land? IP Man 2 previews tomorrow, August 18.
The story of the IP Man was very inspiring for me. I have always been a fan of the Chinese culture and their traditions. The way that they portrayed the old Hong Kong was very remarkable. People have been humble yet they would fight for their art at the same time.
The fight scenes were amazing. The part where Master IP challenged the best leaders of the different forms of martial arts was overwhelming. Imagine fighting on top of the table while achieving balance and talent. Donnie Yen moves graciously during his scenes while looking modest in his dramatic angles.
Four stars for this movie because I believe it needs more emotions from its actors. But of course, it’s a foreign film and they don’t usually have the same hyped up acting as the other countries like us would have. And I think a part three will be shown sometime in the future. Well, I hope so.
Thanks to www.clickthecity .com for scoring premiere night tickets to this movie. Oh and a Wing Chun school presented their martial art before the screening. Should you like to train the martial art, visit http://www.goldenharvest.com/ to inquire about their training center that will open October this year.
Mench and I started our novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help two weeks ago. My novena when I was in college, helped me overcome the stress that was happening in school, to lessen my grandmother’s suffering (due to cancer), and find a nice career after I graduate. But this time, I guess there’s only one thing I’m wishing for. That our dilemma will finally be over. That the one thing, which is my sign of assurance, will finally be given to me. And well, that after it, we’d live happily ever after.
Well it also goes with saying that the people around me would finally accept my decision. That what were fighting for isn’t as easy as it seems. In time, I know everything will be fine. I know that these shall all pass.
But just my luck, I’m starting to win in contests again. Last week, I found out that I won an Inception goodie bag so I went to the Clickthecity.com Makati office with boyfie. Yesterday, the same team emailed me that I won Premiere Tickets to IP Man 2 Movie. It was so nice. And I’m happy that he enjoyed it as well. Seems like I found my lucky charm :D
18 days before my birthday! Quarter-life, I will face you finally! I know you will rock.

Their Tiramisu tastes just like coffee
After munching on their pasta, I ordered their Tiramisu, which suprise, suprise, only costs P55.00. It was a bit bitter but it gets yummier afterwards. I don't know, but its best for coffee lovers like myself.
Oozing with chocolates and caramel
They have an ongoing promo, where you can avail of unlimited servings of Pizza for only P199.00 during 10AM-2PM. We wanted to try it but we were so full already. Guess we really have to try that next time we go there. I also wanted to try their Spicy Chicken.
Yep, were definitely coming back. :)

But I got the most exciting news of them all…
I can't believe its their 31st year already!
The 31st Manila International Book Fair sails at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia on September 15-19, 2010. They usually fall after my birthday and I’m so ecstatic to attend this one. Last year, I only bought two or three books. So I hope they have an interesting selection this time. And at least now, I’m not going there alone.
For details regarding the Manila International Book Fair, visit their website at http://www.manilabookfair.com/. See you all there! :)
Books complete my life. I think the first book I read was the one they were selling during my Elementary days where the illustrations and wordings were as big as a child’s fist. And then I met the fairy tales and the princesses when I could read big words already. At Grade 4, I began the Sweet Valley Kids, Twins and the Unicorn Club. I was never a fan of Nancy Drew though, I prefer Archie Comics afterwards.
But now, I am definitely a novel enthusiast. Foreign books may sometimes be hard to understand but knowing their culture makes you feel that you’re also there, residing at their place and just a stone throw away. They are your friends who you know you could count on for a very long time.
So what other books can you recommend me to read that could fill up my library that I will construct in a couple of years? Keep reading everyone.

Gave five stars to this movie because it kept me thinking, threw debates with my boyfriend if the scenes are still real or a dream. And next to Titanic, this is the second Leonardo di Caprio's movie that I enjoyed and loved.
