I have a 7-year old boy, and just like the rest of womankind, I want a baby girl of my own, but life is keeping from it, hahaha, mahirap ang buhay, parang kapag nag-anak ako ng di pa ko sure sa future ng panganay ko, I'm putting him in jeopardy and I don't want that, I'm too devoted a mother to do that. Baka mamatay ako sa ngitngit ng konsensya, ngayon pa lang kasi na may mga bagay ako naiisip na di ko nagagawa as a mom, naloloka na ko eh, what more kung total failure na ko to give him a good future.
Pero seryoso, after seeing this, I'm really, really tempted, gusto ko ng ganito *sigh*.

Pardon the blurry pics, I don't know where to get better-quality ones, if you're interested, just type ipanema giselle bundchen on your search box and I'm sure it'll pop out. It's too pretty not to be popular, I'm telling you *grins*
This is part of the butterfly collection in Giselle Bundchen's line of Ipanema flipflops that were release the summer of 2011 (not on my part of the world, it's raining cats and dogs here since last month), I took the liberty of posting the two photos below because they captured my heart, it was love at first sight, hahaha.
Now, I'm wishing I have a money tree or a not-so-hidden treasure buried in my background so I can buy it in an instant *grins*
New mantra - Money come to me *tongue out*.

My favorite of all the songs in The Greatest Love/Best Love OST, one of the best K-drama of the season, it's 16-episodes run ended a two weeks ago, it would have been nice if it was extended but I'm okay with the way it ended, the leads made it through and they proved that love, at least theirs, can really conquer all :)
I can't find the English translation of the song, I think, no kind soul has been on it yet, but I found the Hangul lyrics and its romanization, in case you wanna learn the song, you can find it here. The title's literal English translation is Because You Are My Person but for it to sound more eloquent, it is translated as Because You Are Mine.
Have a good day everyone and please enjoy the music.

*Sigh* been super busy with school stuff, not mine, but my son, had no time to write my June recommendations of Korean, Japanese or Taiwanese dramas. Kaya eto pahabol for the month of June, pasensya na talaga, I'll work harder this month :)
Oh yeah, can we do movies for this month's update, I'm kinda itching to share some of my well-loved ones? Okay then...
A Thai movie that was released on August 2010, it placed second on the blockbuster list of all Thai movies during that year. It stars Mario Maurer and Pimchanok Lerwisetpibol (Fern), it is a teeny bopper, feel-good movie, I'm sure anyone with a sense of humor, how little it might be, will love it, I even fell in love with it *grins*.
The plot - The ordinary 14 year old girl Nam is unattractive or in simple terms...ugly. But she's always been secretly in love with an older guy in grade 10 called Chon, the most popular student in high-school. He's hot, perfect and generous, and that's what makes girls go crazy about him, including Nam too. But she doesn't give up easily. She tries to do everything to make her get noticed by the boy she loves, in the hope of him turning around to look at her just one more time.
A Japanese movie, a drama of the same title and same story exist, you can opt to watch that, there are certain differences in the storyline but both are the same as a whole, different actors too; the movie have Miura Haruma and Aragaki Yui. The original story of Koizora, by the author Mika, was popularized on the cell phone novel site, Mahou no Land, and since then has been turned into a novel, a movie, and a drama. It made millions of people cry so a heads up, be prepare to cry buckets, I swear.
The plot - which follows the life of a normal high school girl who experiences many unbelievably sad events, but through it all proving that love conquers all, and this true love story remains unchanged from the movie. Not only does it simply portray the first love of the high schoolers, it shows the warmth from the family, the importance of life, the bonds with friends, and the common happenings of teens, and through it all Mika and Hiro's love story gets unwound.
Another Japanese movie, another tear-jerker, but it's worth the tears, I promise you. The movie was released on October 2009 and it stars Inoue Mao and Okada Masaki.
The plot - Takuma, a boy who is told he will die before he’s 20, and Mayu, a girl who is in love with him… The story begins when they are little kids. Mayu, whose father is a doctor, meets Takuma, who is hospitalized in her father’s workplace. They develop feelings for each other, but Mayu learns of Takuma’s grave illness and that he will die before he turns 20. The distraught children make one promise for an uncertain future. Time passes, and the girl becomes a young woman, and the boy, a young man. Mayu continues to support and love Takuma. On the other hand, Takuma, who knows his days are numbered, pushes away his feelings for Mayu and distances himself from her. He cannot stand to see her cry or hurt her more than he already has. Then Mayu meets another man who has feelings for her, and Takuma meets a woman who has the same illness, and their feelings for each other begin to waver. Misunderstandings, unsaid thoughts, the frustrations and chagrin of youth… What will become of their love while the clock keeps ticking away in Takuma’s life?
A Korean movie shown way back in 2004, but the story is so nice, it never gets old. The actress who played the lead in this movie is now a full-pledged star, Moon Geun Young and of course, the ever dashing Kim Rae Won acted as the male lead. If you've seen it already, go and watch it again, if you haven't then you should, it's a must see!
The plot - Young love is in the air in My Little Bride! Popular heartthrob Kim Rae Won (Rooftop Room Cat) is right at home in this hit romantic comedy about a curious arranged marriage. Kim is Sang Min, a handsome college student who aspires to be a legendary playboy. However, his swinging single ways are about to end thanks to the arrival of 16-year-old Bo Eun (Moon Geun Young, A Tale of Two Sisters). Bo Eun's grandfather was best friends with Sang Min's grandfather, whose dying wish was to see Sang Min and Bo Eun married! Neither of the youngsters have any interest in getting hitched; Sang Min won't be able to attract college girls with a ring on his finger, and Bo Eun is in love with a local high school hunk. But Bo Eun's grandfather is determined to get the two together, even if he has to resort to some wily deception! His tricky ways get the two to the altar, but how will they adjust to a married life neither wants? A romantic comedy full of sweet, fun-loving innocence, My Little Bride promises to charm and entertain anyone with a heart!
I wish to post more recommendations but I'm sort of running late, I need to prepare my son's things, have a warm bath and go to sleep, it's Monday tomorrow, a school day, so I bid you adieux, let's continue some other day :)
Our president, Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino III, had celebrated his first year anniversary as the main figure in Philippine government last week with an address done in some sports complex somewhere in the city (sorry, I forgot the place) and because of that, another not-so-good innuendo is added to the long list of negative remarks on him and his administration *sigh*.
Okay, first of, I am not politically-inclined, aside from my rebellious stint during my college days, I had nothing on my wing that will fall under the term politics, unless, being an officer on class organizations and school clubs counts *grins*. Anyway, I only hear news when I want to and when I'm able but I can say that I knew at least what is necessary to make a post like this.
On Pnoy being the president and the number of demands people are asking from him and the number of preposterous claims and talks about his non-activity and his failure as a president. Here's my two cents - sad as it may sound, most of us Filipinos voted him because he is an Aquino, the only son of Ninoy and Cory, add to the fact that Madam Cory died a few months before the campaign and election, making it easier for him to capture the hearts of melodramatic PNoy. I voted for Noynoy. first because I think of all the candidates at that time, he is the most capable and trustworthy, second, I also vie on the fact that he is the son of two key political figures, I was hoping that he wouldn't tarnish the reputation and honor that his parents have and protected. And he didn't fail me, one year has gone by but I never heard of any graft and corruption that involves him, or any abuse of power. Oh yeah, don't give me the Porsche bull, it's his money, he is rich even before he became the president so I am sure he is more than capable of paying for that.
About people's remarks that he wasn't able to do anything, oh come on, what do you think of him, a superhero, you think he can clean up all the messes that was left on his shoulders by the past administrations, give the man a break, he's loosing precious hairs for God sake. I mean, him being in position, him doing his best, him picking up the crumbs and pieces of what was left of the political institution that the past administration trampled and ruined, him giving hope to the then hopeless Pinoys, isn't that an achievement enough. I know it's not much, I know we want more, but he is just human, just like we are, yes he is the president but he doesn't have any supernatural or magical powers that a snap of a finger or a wave of a wand will do wonders. Patience my friends, I think, no, I believe, he is doing his best.
