Of love,Lito Lapid, and Justin Bieber

Lorenzo's Time (July 23-27)

by Nikki Cea

- Lorenzo's Tita Mildred  can be both naughty and nice.Most of the time,she's mean and knows how to play it well. "My good for nothing brother." Despite the harsh comment, I gotta say that it is one of the most unforgettable lines.LOVE
-Lorenzo wears suspenders while walking with Charie.Is it me or is  he just the cutest boy/man ever?The suspenders alone screams 80's.LOVE
- Jonas+Charie+Enzo eat hotdogs on the park.Can I please join this since I'm still very childlike? LIKE
-Enzo bringing up his absolute admiration for Lito Lapid while Charie seems to be unaware of he is.
 "Parang si Justin Beiber?" Bringing up Justin Beiber to measure Lito Lapid's popularity during his time!LOVE LOVE
-The ever-reliable driver,Jabar gives his no-nonsense advice. "Malungkot ka pala eh, di huwag mo gawin." LOVE
- Enzo, Jabar, and Dr.Carlo tries to do their own take of Leon Guerrero.Watching movies of Lito Lapid would have been a nice cure for Enzo's heartbreak but staging their own little role play was epic.LOVE
-"Senador na si Leon Guerrero." I think this scene was really striking because it signifies change.Whenever we come across people we haven't seen for a while, we would be surprised to know news about them.Truly, nobody knows where life is going to take you. LOVE
-Enzo+Jabar+Dr.Carlo comes to the senate to make Enzo's dream of meeting his idol come true.LIKE
-With that, the trio comes donning suits and shades ala men in black.LOVE
-"Asan kaya dito ang opisina ni Lito Lapid?" Feeling siguro ni Enzo nasa mall lang siya. LOVE
-Jinggoy Estrada is the new love guru.The love talk with Enzo in his office :) LOVE

-Dr.Carlo goes to the Dep. Store where Kat-kat works to buy shoes.Ehem,shoes ba talaga gusto mo? I was thinking of something more interesting than Dr. Carlo's arrival at the work place of the girl he likes.DISLIKE
-Kat-kat's co-workers get kilig with Dr.Carlo's arrival.Does nothing for me.DISLIKE
-Dr.Carlo says, "Nabaliw ako sa kagandahan mo," in a hush tone.Baka naman Dr.Pick-up ka na,dok? LOVE
-Enzo and Charie fooling Jonas into believing that Kat-Kat wants to talk to him. Of course, Jonas doubts this at first. "Weh, di nga?!" Few days ago, my professor was discussing why she does not like this book because the characters seems to converse unnaturally.By that, she means that there are just times wherein lines seems to be so perfect or so rehearsed.And that's probably the reason why I love this scene because it just goes to show the genuine or the natural way of conversing with other people.LOVE

-Jonas gives money to Kat-kat for Charie's tuition fee.Goes to show that Jonas is really trying to be a good father by showing some responsibility. LIKE
-The farmer played by Emilio Garcia reject the money to bribe him for silence.With that, he says what I call the "dignidad speech." Let me say that although I would love to see people actually rejecting any forms of bribery, I think I have seen a gazillion of movies, and series featuring an underdog and having him/her say that line.DISLIKE.
-Jonas peeks through the window and sees Kat-Kat and Dr.Carlo exhanging a quick hug.Awwww yaa poor thing, come to me na lang.LIKE

-Jonas throws off a mini celebration in Kat-kat's home since he's doing a great job in his work.Thing is, the whole gang waits for Kat-kat to arrive and when she does, she comes with Dr.Carlo.Gaaaahhhhh jealousy is in the air.Love triangle intensity is increasing rapidly.LIKE
-Dr.Carlo asks for Enzo's permission so that he can court Kat-kat.This scene is adorable because Dr.Carlo makes it a point to pursue the girl he likes without ruining his friendship with his friend.LOVE
-When Enzo agrees to let Dr.Carlo pursue Kat-Kat.He says that it would be hard to be in a position wherein you would have to be told who you should and should not love.Wise words from a gentleman! :) LOVE LOVE
-Enzo and Dr.Carlo's handshake to signify their truce. LOVE

I apologize for not being able to watch this episode! Teehee

Princess and I Recap

(July 16-21)


by Vochelle Sia

Before anything else, let me tell you about one quotation that I believe in:

“It is our perception of a thing that determines our reaction to it, not the thing itself.”

I’m not really sure who said that. I actually just read that from Paul Wesley’s tweet. So, yes, if Paul Wesley didn’t just quote someone else for that, I have to accept the fact that I’m quoting an actor from a vampire franchise. Haha. Anyway, I wanted to share that quote because whatever I say here are just my opinions. The way I perceive things is different from the way everyone else perceive things, so let’s all just be respectful. J (And just a disclaimer, I prefer Gino for Mikay. But I’ll try not to be too biased! Haha)

·       Jao asks Mikay about living in Yangdon. Agad-agad? PBB Teens? Minus 2.
·       Ashi’s pink+green+brown+blue gown. Anything that’s funny-looking is Plus 2.
·       Another Plus 2 for Ashi fixing Mikay’s bangs as she gives her instructions about the jewelry.
·       Gino gives Mikay a pack of chocnut. When a guy’s short on money, he gives the girl chocnut. Of course. How original, Gino. But still, Plus 2 for effort.
·       “Sinong magpriprito habang nagbebenta ako? Sinong magbebenta habang nagpriprito ako?” Gino says. Plus 1.
·       Gino talking to an imaginary Mikay. THAT ENTIRE SCENE! PLUS 10.
·       Gino and Mikay aren’t friends in Facebook yet? Minus 1.
·       But maybe it’s because Mikay doesn’t have an account. She’s probably too focused on her studies and her dreams, there’s no time for distractions. Aww, admirable! So, Plus 1.
·       Kiko: “Best friend ako, hindi slum book!” Plus 0.5. Gino still can’t get Kiko’s name right. Haha, Plus 1.

·       Mikay’s father overhears Gino talking about going to NSO, and reprimands him. But… but… it is Dindy’s idea! Minus 1.
·       How do you expect to scheme successfully against the King if you can’t even scheme properly against a teenage girl, Ashi? Tsk Tsk. Minus 3.
·       Wait, I’m still really confused about the language thing. Isn’t it that when the Yangdon people speak in fluent Filipino, they’re actually speaking in Yangdon language but the actors are speaking Filipino for the viewers? So why did Mikay responded to Ashi’s “Dahil inagaw ka niya sa akin.”? I want to give this a Minus 5, but I’m not really sure how it works, so never mind.
·       That screaming scene of Jao and Mikay, Ugh. I’m sorry but I really hate it when people on TV shows and movies do that. Minus 10! But I shouldn’t really base things purely on my preferences, so Minus 5 only.

·       “Ginagawa lang naman niya iyon dahil mahal ka niya,” Mikay tells Jao at the park. That was the same thing that he told him at the coffee shop! Minus 3.
·       And then Mikay talks about how obedient of a daughter she is. Minus 5.
·       Jao is with Mikay. Kiko is with Dindy. Gino’s alone and helplessly in love with Mikay. I want to give this Minus 2 for the sake of my little sister who’s a huge Gino-Mikay fan and is very hurt right now.
·       Dindy likes Kiko, but Kiko likes Mikay. And Dindy still manages to not have ill feelings towards her sister? Awww, Plus 2.
·       It rains. They get stranded. OF COURSE. Minus 10, not because of my shipping preferences, but because of how cliché it is. I can’t even! (But in all fairness, we are experiencing a typhoon at of this moment in real life.)
·       Ate Vicki to her mother: “Nay, wag nga kayong mapraning.” Ha! Isn’t she already?? No minus, though. Let’s be considerate.

·       Kiko talks on the phone with Dindy. Gino talks on the phone with Bianca. Are they foreshadowing a Bianca-Gino endgame? Nooooooo! Minus 3.
·       Nagbibilang ng bangs para makatulog? All “bangs” jokes deserve high points. Plus 5.
·       Gino tried counting goats instead of sheep. Plus 0.5
·       I can’t comment on anything else about this episode. I got too bored with the kulambo/lamok scene, so I wasn’t able to focus on the rest of the episode anymore. Haha!

I don’t have anything to say about Friday’s episode because I got too annoyed. But, again, I didn’t get annoyed because of who I prefer for Mikay! I got annoyed because I felt that the scenes were too contived. Jao rushes to save someone, Mikay reacts overdramatically, Jao gets injured, Mikay gets shocked at the thunder and hugs Jao… blah blah blah. Even Gino’s charm didn’t work for me this episode! 

Things you do for love

Because of the weather, my plan of going to school to take advantage of the internet connection and make a comprehensive review and a funny segment backfired.But I promised to myself that I need to post something in this blog for a starter of what I was going to do.
