The Lady in the water

reaction: i think the movies is good, not like all the people say that its horribly third world. i was surprised to see the director in their and i like the way it was filmed, not much of special effects but certainly a good movie. the director is very intriguing having made several blockbusters, that was why i was destined to view this movie in the warmth of our home sofa.

Written by Maya society

My reaction:

the first time i saw the movie in our university library. i was filled with horror to see all the blood, i mean its bloody as hell! but it was good, no regrets at all, the director (Gibson) really put to end all stereotyping when he showed in his film the reality of life, the blood, body liquids and all real anatomy! i should say, another great film. a must see blockbuster, for the bloodthirsty there!.
The movie has a nice plot and story. so touching and brutal, whatever words i describe it. Jaguar paw, the protagonists, is so good, he's athletic build really made the film extraordinary., ive never seen anything like it.

The Picnic

The Picnic

We had our family picnic last day
In the wellness of our backyard gardens
With my husband and children their we lay
We ate happily then something happened
Like a nimbus that stormed our nipa hut
Armed they were and burnt our home to ashes
We tried to escape and crawl along but
We were caught and undertook the lashes
Our gathering that day was well and fine
Headless he was my husband on the ground
My children's eyes were gleaming with sunshine
The splashing of the well meant that they've drowned
Dreaming i was when i saw them with glee
As i watched my body hanged in a tree

An Elven Sonnet

An Elven Sonnet

Digested by Tolkien's Elf perception
I found myself a way to mimicry
a deed worthy of public objection
to me an art that needs validity
i long to be the wisest among all
to be the purest of heart in this dark
world that has given all its beings fall
to resist all his ungodly remark
gentleness more than that of chivalry
a tongue that speaks the language of heaven
an arrow that flies towards enemy
dwells deep in the forests of elven
fantasizing is what it meant to me
judge me not, its all i managed to be

My Christmas bells

my christmas bells

my Christmas when i was half my age
it was merry and full of surprises
i keep an eye on my sock like a sage
forseeing a man would out some candies
covered by a blanket of light; our home
listening to some Jose Mari Chan's
carol of the bells from the children roams
my parents bonus; the christmas tree danced
each day i woke up with glee as it nears
a day to have all my awaited gifts
the midnight feast that is filled with cheers
their love given to me; my soul lifts
and now this christmas is coming again
seeking the luster of that old belen

MEG: primal waters

geek reaction:
i came up with this book one day in the library in our school, i have no time to make a full reading on it, it was all bit by bit every night averaging about 50 pages per night while i was studying.
The author was Steve Alten, and i think he really made a great job with this book, he got my interest, fiction was my preferred genre,when i first held it in my hands and started to read it, i was caught by its unorthodox topic,
some Prehistoric shark a big as a double deck bus is breaking hell lose on earth, with the semi dysfunctional family of the lead character Jonas Taylor,and it is up to him to save to solve this hellish problem. i was never disappointed, all the twists and turn, what a ride! i give it a 10 star for quality reading. and in the end, i was face with sadness, for i was to return it to the library. i wish there is another steve alten meg series novel.

Meg: Primal Waters is a 2004 science fiction novel by author Steve Alten. The book continues the adventure of Jonas Taylor, a paleontologist studying the Megalodon. This takes place about 18 years after the events of the second novel (possible in 2019). Jonas has joined the crew of a new survival series called Daredevils on board a Spanish Galleon. Meanwhile Angel the Megalodon has returned to surface waters from the trench and is being pursued by another male. Also someone behind the scenes of Daredevils has a grudge on Jonas and is planning to use his pet Meg named Scarface as his tool. At books end Jonas lures Scarface into killing his master and Angel is recaptured after being impregnated by and then killing the first male. It is also hinted that something far larger than a Megalodon lives in the deep.

Im bored of stereotype achievements!

just this Sunday i saw the clash between mayweather and hatton, it was an event i shouldnt miss, for in me lies a boxing fanatic, not only for once in my life i dreamt of becoming one, but it runs through my blood, in the home where i grew up, and this fight here held in Las Vegas disappointed me so, i was hoping hatton would make an end to the domination. sterotypes like mayweather is a sore to my eye, i am hungry for new faces., i am hungry for more, im sick seeing the filthy rich pretty boy, though he is really good, there is still that one man who can put him down hard on the canvas.

The Lunatic

The Lunatic

He who knows greatly the code of knowledge
the genius in him that lacks sanity
He who speaks his mind and talks with courage
forever consumed by insanity
He who discriminates other people
Like an Aryan who maintains a standard
the depth of his words he always mumbles
many perceive him a genius bastard
if he writes to impress or to express
it makes no sense the idiots ignore it
He who is always deprived and depressed
pride is present; trying to fight this shit!
but to live is Christ and to die is gain
a bitter lunacy; to live in pain


Rizal woke up

Rizal woke up

It was not like this a long time ago
when the people are happy and progressed
the pearl of the orient shines with a glow
truth and justice reigns over the oppressed
like the rapids we can't undo our time
or the Papaya that decomposes
nows stands this land, ruled by insolent swines
peopled by beggars and mocked by Moses
the land was swallowed by darkness and stench
a plateau where money weighs more than love
life of poverty is a gripping wrench
miserable blackening of the dove
for i do not know our future maybe
lets start a revolution you and me
