Game of Thrones at 2016 Comic Con

Filed under: Television — Tags: — rvchua @ 4:08 am

I hate to say this but Iwan Rheon is growing on me. I have watched him in several interviews and can’t help liking him. He is very different from Ramsay Bolton who I want to die in every scene. I concur with his thoughts on who should sit in the Iron throne though Kristian Nairn’s opinion is surprising also.

I hope to see Iwan in other tv shows or in a movie. Another baddie perhaps?

Wonder Woman

Filed under: Film — Tags: — rvchua @ 11:14 am

I can’t wait for the Wonder Woman movie to come out next year. She was amazing in Batman vs Superman and more than able to confront Doomsday directly. Henry Cavill’s Superman is the most unlikable Superman I have ever come across and I am just bored with Batman, too many films, tv shows and comics of him. When Wonder Woman came out in her costume, her shield, her arm bands, her lasso, I was so happy to see her especially that she could do more than Superman!

I don’t want to raise my expectations too much about the movie but I hope they put considerable scenes with the Amazons especially with Hippolyta and Antiope. The image below shows so much promise.

My Dream Job

Filed under: Environment — Tags: , — rvchua @ 1:51 pm

I am almost embarrassed to say but my dream job is to do some sort of work that helps the environment. I am not talking about joining Greenpeace but maybe become the expert in the waste segregation facility? Open a composting center? Does Environment Secretary have any plans to make it every person’s responsibility to help the environment? We need stricter waste segregation, banning plastic bags, composting, more trees in urban areas, more recycling/upcycling centers, minimizing packaging material, reduction of food wastes, etc. Looking forward to what the Duterte administration will do!

Give Us The Lowdown

Does Samuel L. Jackson really watch Game of Thrones? If yes, who is his favorite character? His favorite dragon? Who does he think will sit in the Iron Throne? Why didn’t he talk about season 6? Shame! Shame! Shame!

2016 Wishlist#2

Filed under: Shopping — rvchua @ 12:08 pm

I know I will never shell out the money for a real Birkenstocks so I will have to make do with the Payless version. I tried it at the store this morning, I was tempted especially that all my shoes are wet from the constant rains and flood. However, I managed to whisk myself before I weakened. So I was very surprised that instead of P995 it is P298.50 online! How do I get the cheaper version?



Classic Book Find

Filed under: Books, Shopping — Tags: — rvchua @ 11:57 am

443017At Book Sale Parkmall, I saw a couple of P.D. James (The Lighthouse and Death in Holy Orders), Jacqueline Winspear’s Pardonable Lies, an M.C. Beaton, Gail Carriger’s Changeless, Henning Mankell’s The Man Who Smiled and Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey. I was excited to see the Mankell book but I picked up Pocket Penguin Classics edition of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South. I have plans to reread it again but not in ebook form. I bought the copy for P121!

I wish I also found a copy of Wives and Daughters which is in my future classics TBR!

2016 Wishlist#1

My Nike backpack, which I bought in Japan two years ago for around P800, has a broken zipper. I would suddenly find the main compartment completely open. I don’t know how long I can keep using it. I can’t see the possibility of having it repaired unless I go to those fake Habagat sellers in the hope that someone can fix my bag.

When the time comes, I am leaning towards the JanSport Austin backpack. At 26L, it is big enough for a weekend getaway and it has an internal laptop sleeve. It is P2,890 in Zalora but I won’t be buying it online.

More Pilates

Filed under: Pilates — Tags: — rvchua @ 1:20 pm

I would love to do these yoga moves on the reformer however my instructor hasn’t made me do these except for the lunge with only one leg on the reformer. If I do that handstand prep, will I finally be able to do the elusive handstand? How strong have I become?
