Random Thoughts From the MRT and LRT

1. The MRT and LRT are extensions of hell - the people push and shove at each other, to hell with that poor pregnant woman; screw that old lady - as long as they get inside. You'd think we were being besieged by aliens or something.

2. The bra in no longer considered underwear. Yes, stick 'em out, sister!

3. The beeping sound means that if you do not get into the train this very moment, you will die.

4. I know I'm supposed to listen to that garbled thing I'm hearing over the PA system, but I don't speak... uhh... that thingy... uhh...

5. That thing you're smelling now? You don't want to know.

6. "Von Dutch" is now the leading imitation fashion label. It doesn't matter that the name sounds more like a very bad milk brand than a clothing label.

7. I didn't know some people considered falling down into a fellow unknown passenger a lot of fun. That's why there are handrails, idiot.

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.
