Where would I be on 2154?

I see you.

We have seen him work in Terminator 2.

We saw how magnificent his eyes are in Titanic.

Now, brace yourselves for another masterpiece from the master, James Cameron.


When I heard of the film, it was nothing for me at first. It seems to be just another sci-fi movie that would pass by.

And then the trailer came, I said, "This I have to watch,"

I am not a movie critic, as I always say. But I love how James Cameron illustrated the world he created with his own mind.

I love every detail of the film - from the 3D technology to the music to the actors to even the creatures in the film.

I love how he told the story to every eye that will watch the film. I love how he brought me to another world, a world where everyone would want to be in.

Though the cast wasn't that strong, except for how Zoe Saldana do that growl and Sam Worthington's oh-so-hotness physique, the effects and story balanced it.

Would James Cameron still create such film?

That I'll leave up to him.

But I have only this to say, amazing is an understatement. Avatar is one divine masterpiece you surely don't want to miss.

So call your friends and take them to a one hell of an Ikran ride.

I love you, I do

Tranquility sparks
Illuminating the night
Thoughts of you ignite.

Thy breath is fresh air
Giving life to weary days
You're my oxygen.

Your warm, sweet embrace
Blankets me when I feel cold
Alone without you.

The touch of your lips
Shivers throughout my body
I crave everyday.

The look of your eyes
Melts my stonecold, empty heart
It drives me crazy.

All these I dare keep
Without you, where would I be?
I love you, I do.

Here's a haiku for my partner after challenging me to write one.
To you, I hope you like it.

The country's gift this Christmas

Today's the start of Philippine's traditional Misa de Gallo.

You can now surely smell the cold breeze of the air as the holiday seasons come near.

But looking back, are we really having a merry Christmas despite the latest happenings in the country?

The latest on is the Ampatuan-Maguindanao Massacre where more than 50 people were murdered heinously.

Is this the country's gift for Christmas?

Nobody thought that would happen. Who would right? Only maybe those people who did it.

But on the brighter side, I still believe we're having a merry Christmas.

This would really be up to us now.

What we need to do now is to pray as one for the justice of the victims.

It wouldn't happen that fast, but we still need to believe that it will come, in time.

The country's gift might be gruel and tragic.

But giving it back with prayers and faith is one gift no one can ever take from us.

Merry Christmas everybody.

Start of dreams coming true

Where does everything start?

And I wonder how?

I always go back to Miley Cyrus' song, The Climb.

As the song goes:

"Ain't about how fast I get there,
ain't about what's waiting on the other side,
It's the climb,"

Starting out, I have always been a huge fan of advertising - it's creativity amazes me. And yes, I dreamt of being a copywriter.

I wish to someday win my Tambuli, Araw Award, Kidlat, and if opportunity allows me, that Cannes Grand Prix.

Too much of a dream?

I say, it's wishful thinking.

Going back to the question, where do you start?

You start dreaming, wishing that what you have in mind comes to reality.

Then comes, looking for the way on how you get there, the good and best way of course.

And when you get there, you stay and try to be the best.

Where does it end?

You are the one to tell it.

One key is to be happy and cherish every moment of it.
