The Movie that Broke my NTMS

I loved watching the old cheesy tagalog movies of the 80s and the 90s.  Super Inday and the Golden Bibe had me in a laughing frenzy.  Roderick Paulate as Petrang Kabayo was a supreme classic.  And who could forget the guys of Bagets (which I watched for a number of times even though I could not understand the workings of the complex teenage mind yet - I was but only in Grade 1 when I first caught it on TV)?


However, there was a period in my short existence here on earth that I did not watch a single Filipino movie.  From the year 1995 to early 2000, I chose not to catch a single local film.  Heck, no!  I am not biased against locally-made films.  It's just that I felt there were no other quality pelikulas showing that time.  I do remember a lot of bomba and ST movies, though.  Hehehe!  I used to call this my No-Tagalog-Movie Streak.  NTMS for short. 

But that all changed when this movie came.  No, it was not a drama, nor was it a thought-provoking documentary.  My NTMS was broken by....Pedro Penduko, the Return of the Comeback!

Pedro Penduko

Ok, ok.  Lame, yes.  But definitely entertaining!  Being a fan of the first Pedro Penduko Janno Gibbs-starrer in 1994, I waited with bated breath to catch this flick.  And although it still had cheesy lines and below par visual effects, my enthusiasm for the first film carried on and I was able to watch the entire film without batting an eye.

And now you know my secret.  And still after 11 years since the Return of the Comeback was shown, I still wonder when Pedro Penduko 3 will be made.  =D

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
