Of Korean Food, Kenshin, and My Sister

August 31, 2014, Sunday

My sister is in town! She’s on a two-week educational tour with her co-Civil Engineering 5th year batchmates (OMG she’s graduating next year!) Dayoff daw nila kasi Sunday.

Meanwhile, I was accidentally bumped by a bike while on my way to fetching her in the morning along General Luna St. in Paco, Manila, just near my sister’s hotel. Gosh! Kuya was not paying attention! Well there, I got pasa in my left arm and a dirt on my pants too. Nasangga ko siya ng left arm ko kaya ayon, buti hindi ako natumba sa kalsada.

Well anyway, I got my sister. I brought her to Sacred Heart and we went to church for Sunday mass. And then…the highlight! We ate in a Korean resto near Tomas Morato. She was so busog that I ate all the samgyeopsal in the end, bawal magtira eat-all-you-can kasi. Haha.

Korean it is.

Korean it is.Pigging out.Pigging out.

Samgyeopsal is best partnered with kimchi and soy paste plus sesame oil wrapped in lettuce.

After we ate, we went to my apartment to change clothes and to rest for a while. Medyo nangamoy samgyeopsal kami. Hehe.

Bonding with 라락 여동생. :)

We watched Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno. Oh my God! I love the lips of Battosai Himura! Doon talaga ako nakatingin all the time. Haha! The movie was great of its kind, obviously hindi pa siya tapos. May love story pa at marami pang fight scenes. 🙂

"I will be a wanderer."

“I will be a wanderer.”

At the end of the day, nakakangalay sumakay sa LRT at MRT. Nakatayo kami all the time…hay. But still, it was an unforgettable bonding moment with my sister. 🙂 Fulfilling kahit na butas bulsa ko after. Lol!

Ordinary Human

Aug. 28, 2014

I haven’t watched movies for the past two months for some reasons, until today.

I was just actually first caught by the song, Ordinary Human by OneRepublic, and I found out that it’s the OST of the movie, The Giver. So, I immediately watched it after knowing so.

Today I felt a switch in my vein

Today I made them all afraid

Used to be a shadow

Now a shadow scream my name

And in the daylight I could swear

We’re the same

But I’m just an ordinary human

The movie is actually a social science fiction (wiki) or a sci-fi one, which is my interest. However, it talks about the past, the present, the future, and LOVE.

It’s about Jonas who lives in a futuristic black and white, rather colorless, emotion-less, at peace, no pain and no suffering world, where he happens to become the memory receiver or simply, The Receiver. He then meets The Giver, who will turn over all the memories of the past to him. Then, Jonas receives it all. He knows now that there is color, music, ‘the hippo which is actually an elephant’, music, dance, emotion, dream, LOVE, and WAR. He then wants to get back all of those memories even it has to mean breaking all the rules he has lived by, and to become an ORDINARY HUMAN again.

There are just some lines that I can remember.

From suffering there is pain.” – Chief Elder, Meryl Streep

“Memories are not just about the past. It determines our future.” – The Giver, Jeff Bridges

“A dream is a combination of reality, fantasy, emotion, and what you had for dinner.” – The Giver, Jeff Bridges

If you don’t feel, what’s the point?” – The Receiver, Brenton Thwaites.

Moreover, here is a fan-made lyric video I found in Youtube. I think the song is actually made for Jonas’ character. 🙂

This song hits me.

Lyrics below and those in italics are my favorite. 🙂

“Invisible”

Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels
Or anyone who just dares to be different
And you’ve been trying for so long
To find out where your place is
But in their narrow minds
There’s no room for anyone who dares to do something different
Oh, but listen for a minute

Trust the one
Who’s been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Those words cut deep but they don’t mean you’re all alone
And you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
Someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
Oh, invisible

So your confidence is quiet
To them quiet looks like weakness
But you don’t have to fight it
‘Cause you’re strong enough to win without a war
Every heart has a rhythm
Let yours beat out so loudly
That everyone can hear it
Yeah, I promise you don’t need to hide it anymore
Oh, and never be afraid of doing something different
Dare to be something more

Trust the one
Who’s been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Yeah, the words cut deep but they don’t mean you’re all alone
And you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more of this life than what you’re feeling now
And someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible

These labels that they give you
just ’cause they don’t understand
If you look past this moment
You’ll see you’ve got a friend
Waving a flag for who you are
And all you’re gonna do
Yeah, so here’s to you
And here’s to anyone who’s ever felt invisible

Yeah, and you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
And someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
It’ll be invisible
