Iron Man 2

I watched Iron Man 2 today with my girl friends and I had a great time.  I wasn't able to watch the first one so I got a little bit confused at first.  I finally got the hang of it because the movie was so great.

After six months of admitting that the man behind the Iron Man suit is the CEO of Stark Industires, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), the US Government is still not convinced that he will and can maintain peace.  He was asked by Sen. Stern to hand over the suit because he believes that its technology might be copied and be used for terrorism.  Of course, Stark did not handed down the suit and proved that the senator's claims are actually to benefit his company's rival--Hammer. 

Little did Stark know that his father wasn't the only one who had knowledge of the technology he's been using.  In the cold and icy part of Russia, Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), the son of his father's co-scientist knows the technology and is just waiting for the right time to claim what he believe was denied of them.

Believing that his time will end soon because the palladium that is keeping him alive is also slowly poisoning his body, he appointed Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) as the new CEO of Stark Industries.  Vanko's time for revenge came during the F1 race in Monaco where Stark was about to race.  Stark was dumbfounded that somebody else knew the technology.  Vanko was jailed but Hammer's CEO, Justin Hammer freed him and used his knowledge to finally put an end to Stark's technology.  Hammer didn't know that Vanko was just using him and his resources to fulfill his revenge.

In the verge of giving up in finding a cure to Stark's condition, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) of S. H. I. E. L. D. came and gave him an idea that would change the course of his life.  Nick Fury's "eye", Natalie Rushman (Scarlett Johansson) updates him of Stark's activities.  His friend, Lt. Col. James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) became skeptical when Stark lost control of himself but came back to be his ally when he found out Hammer's and Vanko's plans.

I will not mention the ending because I recommend that you watch it.

I will give Iron Man 2 nine out of 10 stars.  By the way, Scarlett looked great in a cat suit.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Oyster Forest Life Resort

I have discovered another place where you can relax and enjoy the long weekend this October... Oyster Forest Life Resort along Sta. Rosa Road, Brgy. Langka, Silang, Cavite. If you are travelling from Tagaytay City, turn left when you see Tagaytay Econo Hotel. It is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the intersection. The resort is actually owned by Oyster Plaza Hotel in Paranaque.
The resort's theme is very Filipino. Bamboo cottages surround the pool area so you feel like you are just lounging in your own backyard without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and stressful workload. They have a restaurant so you don't have to worry where to buy food when you get hungry. They also have a free WiFi connection so that you can update your Facebook or Twitter accounts for your friends to see how good of a time you are having.

Movie Review: Kita Kita (I See You)

They say "Love is blind", while others say "the lovers are". Whichever you believe in, one thing is for sure, love comes in the most unexpected way. Kita Kita (I See You) is not the typical romantic comedy film you see regularly in theaters. Lea (Alessandra de Rossi) and Tonyo (Empoy Marquez) are the main characters of the movie--they are the most unconventional pair but I was surprised by their chemistry. Their acting was so unbelievable that they made me believe everything is real. 
I laughed and cried. It made me think. It made me see what the eyes can't.
