Captain America The Winter Soldier

Captain America The Winter Soldier is probably one of the most anticipated movies for 2014. Its a direct continuation from the first movie, and I did not expect it expect it to be this good. Yes, the second installment of the Captain America franchise is better than the first.

Lets be honest the first movie, was good, but not great. It was a little bit boring at the first part, but it picked up in the middle until the end. But this movie is different. Its different in a lot of ways.

The Capt had some character backup in the person of Nick Fury and Black Widow, and two more, which makes the movie even more awesome. I guess those 4 new additional characters were a needed backup from what happened on the first movie.

The movie revolved around in stopping the three huge hover crafts (the one they used in The Avengers, the one that looked like an aircraft carrier that really flies and has the capability to be invisible). Along the course of the movie, one character will be coming back (spoiler alert!!!) but of course I will not be spoiling who will it be.

This movie has more essence and substance than the first one. I dont know but I liked this movie more than the first. And its longer too... 2 hours and 1/2 but its really worth it. Its one of those movies that I dont mind watching even if its for three hours.

I wont go into the details of the movie because I want you to watch it for yourself. Just take my word for it, its a really great movie. Not recommended for 3D though, just go for 2D.

Rating: 9/10

The Paradise that is Coron

First Day

Alright for my first post of this year, I will take you back on my first trip down south. Yes you heard it right, my first time adventure in Palawan is in the island paradise of Coron.

Its been a long time dream of mine to go and explore Palawan. I have heard so many beautiful things about this place and I cannot contain my excitement when it finally happened.
Planning of this trip happened as early as March of 2013. I booked a flight with PAL around 800++ one way. I stayed in Coron for three days. (October 18-20). I preferred to travel during this season because I know that there will be less people, compared going there around summer time. And I was right. People is lesser during this time, that means more time to explore and savor the beauty of this place. I did not get a flight back until August, because I was still waiting for a seat sale. And luckily I got one from Cebu Pacific

my boarding pass for coron

Time to choose a place that we could stay in. My friends and I agreed, that since we seldom get a vacation leave together, we would try to get a hotel with a reasonable price. Not to cheap and not to pricey either. Just to reward ourselves and besides this is a vacation that happens not quite often. We booked our stay with Coron Westown Resort, a resort in Busuanga, 10 minutes away from the town of Coron. The resort is relatively new and is situated outside the town...more peace and quiet for us.

need for me to say more? beautiful right. That's the resort we stayed for three days. I dont even want to leave.

This limestone will be the one greeting you once you reach the resort.

Amazement is the right term for the resort. We got our moneys worth for this one. And hindi kami nagsisi that we booked it here. The room has all the amenities that we need. The the comfort room is really big and spacious, as in malaki talga, pwedeng lagyan ng isa pang single bed. hehehehehe. The only catch is it is outside of Coron. So we have to ride a tricycle to reach town (70 pesos per way) not bad. And their tricycles are very spacious. Not like the ones here in Q.C. Very big ung sa knila.

And I am back!!! clap clap clap!!!

Its been a year since I have last created a post, and like the days that completes a year...many things have happened, I have eaten, sat, and watched movies. (very appropriate for this blog...hahahaha)

So what to expect? I will be updating this blog as often as I can, especially summer is fast approaching and that means more time to spare and create posts. What gets me excited is watching movies. There will be some blockbuster movies coming soon on the big screen e.g Captain American: The Winter Soldier, Malificent (this one im particularly excited), Noah just to name a few. Not to miss any of the old movies that I have watched, I will be posting some of the movies that made a mark on me last 2013. I will also cover up the activities that made up my 2013...spent the holy week in Vigan, went island hopping in Coron, and went back to Singapore for the third time.

Okay everything is set, so just relax as I take you to the wonderful world of movies and the sumptuous foods in the metro.

Lets Eat.Seat.Watch!
