Bumming Around

Leaving my last job makes me quite the official bum, if I do say so myself, but so far, the only downside to being one is the lack of money to spend. I can wake up everyday at 1pm, and nobody gives me a memo. Even boredom's welcome to me; after what I went through at my last place of employment, I'd much rather be bored than be slave driven to the point of near death, thank you very much.

Besides being a lazy couch potato, I've also managed to do some constructive things - I'll be getting my driver's license sometime soon. I'm also going to be able to get my college clearance and diploma, things I didn't have the time to get before. And I've been helping my mom with the household chores from time to time.

This is definitely much, much better than my last job.

From Slumdog to Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire has been getting a lot of hype lately, and I, for one, think it deserves it.

Set in the slums of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire is, simply, a rags-to-riches story of a boy who went from the shit-diving fanboy (watch the movie and you'll understand) to the 20 million-Rupee winner of the local version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - and gets the girl of his dreams in the process. And to make it truly Bollywood-grade (it's a British film, BTW), there's a dance scene at the end.

While some may say that the story is something we've all seen before countless times over and over again (yes, the premise is THAT overused), that's entirely beside the point. No idea is new, they say, the key lies in the way something is presented, which makes Slumdog Millionaire stand out from all the rest. The cinematography for one, is great, and for a movie that reminded me so much of the slums of our own Payatas, of the congestion of this sprawling metropolis we call Met…

One last thing before I hit the sack.

I realize I haven't been posting as much as I want to (ha, Captain Obvious), settling for the occasional photo.

Still, I just want to give out a big thank You to the Guy Upstairs, for blessings and what I pray to be good things to come.
