I was a victim of a pickpocket four years ago. And I learned my lesson the hard way. I promise myself to be more careful. And avoid bags or wallets that may attract those thieves. I found a mighty and smart wallet, and until now, I am still using it.
Let your heart be your compass.
I love this line very much. Perhaps it truly hits home. And it is the reminder that kept a little princess named Sara and his wealthy, and renowned adventurer-father Captain Crewe survive those months of being away from each other. After some heartbreaks, the two reunite. Their deep love for one another is what keeps them hopeful. The same love I have for stage plays that pushes me to watch despite the distance and time.
REP stages grand musical A Little Princess
Repertory Philippines (REP) winds down its 49th year with the charming, touching, and entertaining A Little Princess. The costumes, props, setting and backdrops, choreography, and acting are exceptional. My Big Bunso joins me that night, and he is in awe most of the time. He particularly admires the powerful voice and perfect acting of the charming Felicity Kyle Napuli. Napuli plays the petite scullery maid Becky.
* Posted last August 13, 2014 at Mga Pahina ni Msbolin, this blog entry can now be read at Momi Berlin. Momi Berlin loves to watch movies and does review. And the flick “Lucy” was not spared.
We both like Scarlett Johansson. Thus, we watched “Lucy” last night. After an hour and a half of sitting inside a nearly jam-packed movie house, we ended up disgusted.

We were supposed to watch “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” but the flick was pulled out last week from SM Novaliches cinema. We settled for “Planes: Fire and Rescue” instead.
A Cars spin-off
At first, I found the movie boring, almost comparing it to “Cars,” the computer-animated comedy adventure sports film. Well, “Planes” was “Cars'” spin-off thus explain the resemblance.
I saw John Carney’s Begin Again. And I liked it. Sometimes too poignant and at other times a little heartwarming, nonetheless, the flick was pretty impressive. The storytelling was told in an unconventional way that kept me wanting the two leads to end up together.
Though some scenes were unsurprising and some dialogues tedious, the abundance of music made the film likable. At least to me.
The characters drove me insane for one hour and 40 minutes. The flick had the most unusual engaging pair. They were pretty much appealing. At first, I hated Mark Ruffalo’s messy, bushy, and fat appearance, but I have learned to accept him the way I first admired him at “13 going on 30.” And Keira; her cheeks looked sunken, but I enjoyed watching her sing, pause, stare, and smile.
The movie started with two lost souls joined to create beautiful music. And because “Begin Again” is an unusual film, even I did not see the ending coming. Very subtle. The ending was pretty much the same as the songs of Gretta —
And yes the songs. Bet the soundtrack will be a hit, perhaps more will come back for the music.
Second son had a fever. His temperature –
Aside from the high temperature, he was in pain. He got hot flashes and cold chills. He might have an infection. To remedy asap while waiting for his pedia’s kind advice, we opted to use cool packs on his forehead.
The first time I had Sushi Roll, I felt nauseous. Then I rushed to the ladies room and told myself “that kind of food is bad enough to make me throw up.” I never had sushi again.
Not until recently.
I met a friend in a ramen house. Vance, my blogger pal, taught me about keywords or how to make it possible for people to find your site via search engine. She also introduced to me Google + and the beauty of YouTube. She is that generous. As generous as the Japanese diner where we spent almost half our day.
Since it is a ramen house, Vance ordered for a cold ramen. Though she was not that impressed with the dish, she immediately found comfort in the Tokyo Coffee Jelly. I, on the other hand, ordered for California Maki. And just to make sure my stomach would not complain should I made the wrong order, I got a rice meal as well.
The best age for kids to learn is up to 4 years, which is also considered the age for early childhood development or ECD. This age as per research is well known for the time when the brain starts to take shape and form its own thoughts and learn new tricks that can make a wonderful base for future learning of kids. As kids learn alphabets and numbers and speak up fluently, it is interesting to teach them how to write their names too. If you are a new parent or your child has just entered kindergarten or preschool, you may try the following fun tricks to help them learn their names and spell them with confidence.
Two Saturdays ago, this momi and his second son attended a Halloween party called “Kids in the City.” It was at The Grove by Rockwell. The afternoon was filled with various booths all featuring engineering and robotics-related activities that everyone was able to enjoy. It was, for this reason, I brought along my second son. Among my boys, he is most inclined to engineering. His school club, moreover, is engineering.
Momi Berlin got a text message from Firstborn. He needs a white shirt, three packs of Joboss and a bundle of rubber band. I got home and my guess was right. He needed to tie-dye a shirt.
Tie-die made a big hit in the 1960s and resurfaced in the 1990s. Since then, it has moved in and out of fashion. But I still do not appreciate its look, more so find it creative or attractive.
So I left Firstborn to make his project by himself.
