Happy New Year?

The date changes, and everyone goes back to the stone age.
About 9PM last night, I was in a tricycle on my way home when some infantile moron decided that it would be great fun to throw a very powerful firecracker in our path. Really, if murder wasn't a crime, I'd like to throw one of them super lolos at whoever's face that was. Now that would be really fun.
I absolutely abhore New Year - all that damned noise. What people get out of playing with firecrackers, I haven't the faintest idea.
Nevertheless, I wish everyone - except that infantile moron - a Prosperous and Happy New Year.

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.
