Wonderful Birthday: Gastronomic Adventure Served by Ticxs

Finally, got a chance to try this awesome Plate Culture place! I’ve learn this one from watching Poptalk, and I’m so awed after I’ve got a taste of their own food.

I’ve been waiting for this day to happen. The first time I inquired for my father’s birthday celebration last April, they told me they weren’t available on my prefer date; I was left heartbroken. I do forget about Gastronomic as months passed by; suddenly, Plate Culture popped up on my screen, and I knew from that day on that it would be a great one.
I’ve inquired once again in Gastronomic, and fortunately, they’re available on my mother’s birthdate. Yahoo!

I already reserved the slot for my prefer date earlier September. Fast forward, the day I’ve been waiting for had arrived.

We rode an Uber going to the said place, and had a “tough” time finding their house since the driver entered the wrong street, good thing Mr. Chino saw us and help us to find their house.

Well, I’m not very good in detailed stories so I’ll just post photos for your understanding.

Thank you.

Biyaheng Pilipinas: Sakay na sa Tatak Pinoy (Gerry’s Jeepney)

Last October, a friend of our employer treated us since one of our officemates did a favor for her.

They decided to dine at Gerry’s Jeepney which is a new attraction within the perimeters of Kapitolyo.

Jampacked Friday especially during lunch time, so we were flattered to be sat inside a Jeepney themed function room.

They (our boss&her friend) ordered our food named “Pasig” which includes the following: rice, inihaw na pusit, alimasag&tahong, hipon, inihaw na isda, nilagang okra+talong and talbos na kamote, and 6 iced tea and soup. This one cost Php 1680 and is good for 4-6persons that why they ordered another one. For the rice you can choose whether plain, bagoong, or garlic; for the hipon (shrimp in English) you can choose crispy or halabos; and for the isda(fish in English) you can choose bangus, hito, or tilapia.

Well, it was such a wondrous experience. We came in hungry, and we left the said place full and happy.

Welcome to the Magical World of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children through the Loop

Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Running Time: 127 minutes
Movie Stars: Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, Ella Purnell, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.
Based on the novel of Ransom Riggs

Friend: Did you hear that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will be made into a movie?
Me: o_o (No idea at all).
Friend: Well, prepare your pocket for this one because your celebrity crush (Asa Butterfield) will frontline this movie.
Me: (screaming silently) Okay, okay.

Weak Points: (THIS IS REALLY a SPOILER if you haven’t read the book)

The lead actor (Asa Butterfield) portrays Jake and not Jacob which is quite disappointing because his original name based on the book is Jacob.

Emma’s (Ella Purnell) ability is associated with flying when in fact she’s a fire element.

Olive is the one who has the ability to make fire (She’s lighter than air – power of flying).

Miss P was set free (the reason why there’s a second and third book is because she was held captive and was never freed).

Strong Points:

The entire movie was creatively transformed into a lighter emotions; friendly language; and child appropriate film. (The book felt quite heavy, also, a bit of mystery and thriller can be felt when you read the entire book).

About the Movie:

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children started quite creepy, and dark; then there goes the lighter part – Jake’s first appearance, his family’s introduction, and his travel going to the island.

As the story goes on, Jake entered the looped, and met the entire children under the care of Miss Peregrine.

Then, the attacked of Hollowgast came where Miss P was held captive.

Jake and the rest of Miss P’s children came to rescue her, and so she was set free.

YAY or NAY?

It was a Yay since it was created for all ages, but it was also a Nay for those who had read the book (including me) since there were some scenes that should have been deleted, and some scenes from the book that should have been included.

Recommendation:

Yes for all who are curious, and want some lighter stories.

No for those who had read the book.

Overall, watch on your own risk.

Movie Review: The Depressing Emotions of The Girl On The Train

Title: The Girl On The Train
Running Time: 112minutes
Movie Stars: Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Γ‰dgar RamΓ­rez and Lisa Kudrow
Based on the novel of Paula Hawkins

When can you say that a book was perfectly made into a movie?
For me, the only way you can say that it was perfectly made into a movie: when you felt the same emotions you had when you read it, or when you felt connected to the actors/actresses of the said movie.

Guess what, I felt depressed when I’ve watched The Girl On The Train, which means it was made almost perfectly into a movie.

Introduction:

Last October 16, my sister and I got to spend a quality time by watching movies. Well, I rarely watch movies since tickets are too expensive, and I’m not really into those movies. The only time I do watch a movie: if it was a book turned into big screens. πŸ™‚

The Girl on The Train (TGoTT), is such an amazingly written masterpiece for me since I really felt connected while reading it. Upon hearing the news that it will be turned into a movie, I got excited since I can’t wait to see the characters being portrayed by acclaimed artists.

About the movie:

TGoTT, was quite a dragging one as it started. (Same with the book)

Rachel’s viewpoint/story was introduced first. For me, it was almost the same as the book.

Then, Megan’s viewpoint/story. The character who gave life to Megan looks like Jennifer Lawrence. I swear. And gosh, such an awesome actress for me. She portrayed Megan just the way I imagined. Thumbs-up πŸ™‚

Lastly, Ana. An angelic face for me (pertaining to the actress). Such a stunning one, though she lacked emotions in some parts, and she only appeared a few times from the start, which is quite disturbing for me since I couldn’t remember all her scenes in the book. πŸ™‚

Three stunning ladies who is connected because of one man. (And yes, if you haven’t watch the movie or haven’t read the book, this part is somehow a SPOILER ONE. So please, excuse yourself immediately). One man who destroyed all of them, but the worst victim is Rachel since she was alive but dying inside, unlike Megan who is six feet below the ground; she can’t feel the miseries.

Yey or Nay?

For me, it was a Yey since I felt all the emotions the movie had to offer. I felt depressed; felt sorry for Megan and Rachel; felt betrayed for Ana and Rachel; and most especially, I felt lost – lost in their world.

What is the movie all about? (For those who haven’t read the book)

TGoTT is all about a woman (Rachel) who always rides a train going to her work place. Everyday, she sit on the same place and watches a couple who she calls Jess and Jessie. For her, this couple is a perfect example of what a relationship should be. Until one day, Jessie, was missing and before it happened, Rachel, from the windows of the train, saw a man who is not Jess, hanging around with Jessie.

In order to help, Rachel told what she saw to Jess – from that day, everything will turn upside down for Rachel, Jess (as what Rachel calls him), Ana, and the rest of the characters.

TGoTT is all about the unsolved case of Megan (the real name of Jessie); what’s really happening to Rachel; and the pretentiously happy life of Ana.

Recommendation:

Now, I will jot down two options here: One for Yes, and another one for No.

Yes – if you want films full of dialogues and less actions. Also, if you’re a fan of depression.

No – if you want your stamina to be excited and if you want your mind to be at peace. Why? Because TGoTT lacks actions, therefore can’t offer your stamina a thrilling movement; and you won’t be at peace since you will be depressed.

There you have it, hope I offered some help to all of you lovely readers.
