Prince of Persia

Sorry I have stopped blogging on the movies I've watched because I've been very busy lately with work and household duties. Some of the fabulous and not-so-fabulous movies we've seen on the big screen include 2010 (I like), Avatar (didn't like it), Sherlock Holmes (nice), The Book of Eli (also nice), Iron Man 2 (mas gusto ko yung 1; I couldn't understand Mickey Rourke when he speaks). So, anyway, today I am writing about the movie Keith and I watched this afternoon - Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time.

Well, at first, I didn't really want to watch it because I thought hindi bagay kay Jake Gyllenhaal ang long hair, c'mon. When I first saw the movie poster, I thought this was a spoof or comedy film and he reminded me so much of Adam Sandler in Bedtime Stories, mwahaha! But Keith said maganda toh, 10 out of 10 (daw accdg to Clickthecity, lol). So, I agreed and met him at Galleria, cinema 4.

The verdict: Okay, pwede na, hehehe. It was entertaining and had many twists. But I couldn't stop thinking that Orlando Bloom could be a better Prince Dastan, hehe. Pwede din si Tobey Maguire, Marc Wahlberg, or si Sasha Vujacic of the LA Lakers.. Augh! Kahit na sino wag lang si Jake Gyllenhaal! Pasensha na, hehehe

There are some movies you can watch on DVD like Shutter Island (nice), but Prince of Persia is recommended to be seen on the big screen. Enjoy! :)

Twins' favorite pastime

Swimming is the twins' favorite pastime. With today's hot hot weather, I can perfectly understand why! We don't even put warm water anymore...

They love to play in this inflatable pool, where they can be themselves, splashing all the way and throwing water at anyone who passes them.

Unfortunately, they do not like public pools and Vito does not like the beach. So, for their 3rd birthday, I am planning to host a swimming party for them. Oh my, that's just 33 days away! Perhaps, it will be a good idea to bring the inflatable pool, in case they decide not to swim in the swimming pool. :P

This kiddie pool has 3 rings which Keith likes to inflate by himself. He's the only one in the family who could inflate it using his own breath, amazing. Haha!

Hunn's Birthday 2010

Keith finally took home the car after 2 weeks. He had sound system installed on it that costs - only God knows how much! Happy Birthday Hunny :)

When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said, "I just want to hear mass". He is not the type who attends mass every Sunday so I welcomed the idea. I called the chapel in Megamall and asked how we could do the Offering. They informed me that there's no need to be scheduled. Anybody can just bring their offering, and line up during Offertory.

This is my first time to do Offering and I didnt know what to prepare. I thought fruits would be safe. Priests love papaya diba, hehe. So I prepared 2 baskets of fruits - one for me and one for Keith. I wrapped them with yellow cellophane - this is what I see during TV healing mass. Oh I forgot to take a pic!

Anyway, we decided to attend the 5PM mass so that we could have dinner after that. We reached Megamall at 5:15PM. The chapel was jam-packed! Vito didn't want to go inside, he got scared - we think he is claustrophobic (but why?). Poor Vito and his yaya just stayed outside, walking up and down the escalators. Later, Carlos got bored and wanted to go outside as well. After the homily, Carlos went to me and pulled me out and he kept saying "monkey! monkey!". I couldnt understand so I turned to his yaya who told me that Carlos was bugging her to play at Kidz Republic. Ah yun lang ba?? Okay! Hehe. I called Vito's yaya and asked them to follow. I said, "30 minutes lang ha kasi matatapos na yun mass" .

When I went back to the chapel, I didnt see Keith. Oh no, the Offertory has started. Waaaah! So anupaba, I waited for him na lang. :)

After the mass, Keith and I waited for the bugoys outside Kidz Republic. They still had 11 minutes to play. When they went out, they were jumping and super happy but you can tell they were exhausted when they asked for water. We changed their sweaty shirts and gave them water/milk. They super enjoyed it! They love the slide, the ball pool, tubes, trampoline. I love that everything is covered in foam, and the place is really child-proof.

I told Keith I made reservations at Gotti's. We've never eaten here, but I heard very good feedback from my PIC Mau. Plus, when I checked Munchpunch for the rates, they are affordable.

Keith is a big Mafia fan, so this is the perfect place for his birthday dinner. We ordered The Godfather and Bugsy's Garlic Cheese pizzas.

Happy Birthday Hunny! May you have many, many more birthdays to come! Mwah mwah! :)

Elbow Room Lounge in Metrowalk

Today, we had our teambuilding at Elbow Room Lounge in Metrowalk. We booked VIP 3 for the event. We feasted on pizza, chili chicken, nachos, calamares and sauteed beef with garlic.

After dinner, we didnt waste much time and started right away with the games. We had nice prizes up for grabs so everyone was excited and in high spirits. I had 2 games and 3 FGDs lined-up for the night. We played Bring Me and Charades. As for the FGDs, they were focused on Trust and Teamwork - Trust Walk, Build A House and Count The Beans.

We also awarded the top performers for Q1. After the programme, some played billiards...

and others went for the karaoke...

Others went home and called it a night. We stayed for a while to watch the live band.

It was truly a fun night! Too bad, I didnt win any prize - I was the host. So, until next time! :)

Mother's Day 2010

Keith surprised me by taking me to this spa in Wilson, Greenhills. The name is Ahavia Lounge Spa. For the longest time, I've been complaining of shoulder muscle pains - you know, the one that hurts when you're in so much stress? hehehe

Upon entering the spa, you are immediately greeted by the cool breeze of the aircon and the relaxing scent of peppermint oils. What a refreshing relief from the super hot Manila weather!

We tried the Western Blend. My massuese, Rochelle, was petite, but her hands were surprisingly strong. This is the first time I had someone crack my upper back. I was shocked at first, thinking that it was my spine! But, I felt really relaxed immediately after that...

Keith and I shared a couples room. Soft music with nature sounds filled the area, and it completed the whole experience. The massage lasted for an hour. I was also able to try their iced tea and chicken sandwich. Mejo matabang ung sandwich for me, but Keith was quick to say - this is a health-conscious spa, so low sodium. Ahem, ok. Hehe.

Thank you Hunny for this wonderful mother's day treat! :)

Ahavia Lounge Spa is located at 173 Wilson Street cor Barcelona St. Greenhills San Juan, Metro Manila. Call to reserve - 7440343.

Brazil Brazil in Metrowalk

Today, Inah, Mau and I went to have dinner at Brazil Brazil in Metrowalk. Been wanting to eat here for the longest time to try their buffet.

For starters, I had macaroni salad. The pasta was good because it was al dente and chewy. I also love the salad with lettuce and different kinds of dressing. I think I went back to the salad bar for like five times, lol. I also order strawberry daquiri to quench my thirst, lav et. As for the roasted beef, I only tried square-inches of the different parts. For dessert, I think I had a gallon of Big Scoop avocado ice cream. OMG, this is the best!

We were the only people in the resto. Can you tell? Hehehe.
