"NO Other Woman" Review

I was supposed to write about this a week ago but have no idea why I put it off for days. I was busy with inane things. I was one of the viewers who went to the cinema when it was on its first week. I watched it with my younger sister, cousin and the yaya of my nephew and we watched it at the last full show of the day. It was Friday and it was free seating at that time. When we were in line we we're told that it was a standing room already 'coz the house is full but we went in nevertheless. We are there already so we just opted to sit at the stairs. It was a first for me :)

Why did we watched it? Well, I love Anne Curtis! I think she is such a nice person and so would want to support her and the plot made me curious. Anne Curtis, played the role of the other woman on this film.

The film is a tale of a man's journey towards building a career and a family that he can competently provide for, but along the way, his ambition and reputation are tarnished by a single adulterous act. So, it mainly focus Derek's role in this film as the man who sinned and why he did it.

As of this posting, No Other Woman, breaks record and breached the P210 million mark in two weeks and still raking in at the box-office to be the number one. And I think it was worth it watching it. ^___^

I think everyone can relate to the story. In every marriage, one would really be tempted to taste a bit of a sin. Why? We are human after all. We are weak and we are all a sinners. The Husband, the wife and the other woman role fits perfectly and I think all of them made the film a success with the way they act their role!

I don't want to be a spoiler so I would not say anything on what happened or the plot of the story. I highly recommend that you should watch it. Kudos to the director! The movie was quite good. :)

Nars Life

When you see a nurse what do you think of them? An angel that God made to make your relatives life comfortable and someone that would take care of them? Or just another human that are paid to take care of you or your relative? A slave? Or just someone doing their task/job?

They would appear to you in a white uniform or scrub..our uniform pertains that we are there to do our job with honor. But you see, all of that is a sham. Life in a hospital is crap. Yes, it's a thankless job and we may be fulfilled that at the end of the day we help someones lives or save a life. But imagine, we are there amidst with all the sufferings and it takes a toll in our hearts  and souls. It sucks the happiness out of our system.

Yes, we are there to do our Job and as we pledge in our profession that we would save lives but we ALL are not that prepared that life in a hospital is pure chaos. :)

Before you yell at your nurse because they did not bring your medicine on time or you need to go to the bathroom or need your medications you should think first that you are not the only patient in this world. He/she may have a lot of patients on her shift. He/she is doing all he/she can do and do his/her task and some of them are not paid at all or his/her salary is not that enough. So, before you talk think first.


In months time there would be another new batches of nurses and yes they would be unemployed..ahhh another batches of beguiled human beings. We should have read a nurses guide after PASSING the BOARD.

Choices to be filled: Call center agent, caregiver, nursing assistant, bank teller, trainee, volunteer!!!

Reality bites big time and yes, I'm one of them. Another gullible soul. I tried to be a volunteer but it really was not made for me. I'm not tailored for it. Imagine having 30 patients per day and deaths. Found out I can't handle deaths. Had a patients that I just looked at him, a three month old infant and he died. :( and to top it off was working with no pay! I realized I can never ever be a martyr!

And I talked back. My Mom was mad at me after telling her that I told someone that if she can't wait then go to a private hospital if she preferred a VIP treatment. Well, I was at the OPD at that time and there was this elegantly dressed lady and asked if they would be first in line because her helper's child vomited a live worm day before and was injected with a medicine yesterday at the ER and was told to go to the OPD and have a doctor see the child. The child was not with them but would just want the doctor to give them a medicine. I told them that the child needs to be seen so that the doctor can further asses what proper medicine would be best for the child. She the told me off to STOP speaking in tagalog because I'm in the province and just say it in the local dialect. Well, it made me MAD, I instead speak in English because she was talking to me in English when telling me to talk to her in our dialect. It was a proper thing to do after all, right? (I was brought up that if someone speaks in English the respond in English) Told her that I was used talking in Tagalog and said that she would have to wait for her number to be called. Her Doctor friend is not there and I don't know what medicine would be given since the child needs to be seen and if she needs to be treated like a VIP then she needs to go to a private hospital since we are in a government hospital so ALL would be treated equally.

Well, it was hilarious now remembering that but it just made the bitch in me to go out. If she were nicer I could have put her first in line because patients have no idea what is their number ;)

So, Please peepz, be nice to your health care provider! :)

Pnoy decide no state burial for Marcos

President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III has spoken: there will be no state honors for former president Ferdinand Marcos despite recommendations from Vice President Jejomar Binay.
Speaking before foreign correspondents, Aquino stressed rendering honors for Marcos would be "the height of injustice" for human rights victims during the martial law era.

"It would be really, I think, the height of injustice to render any honors to the person who was the direct mastermind of all their suffering," Aquino said Wednesday.
Aquino said he has yet to communicate this decision to Binay who earlier recommended military honors in lieu of a Libingan ng mga Bayani burial for Marcos.

"With regards to the Marcos burial, you know, in all honesty—and I think I will have to communicate this to the Vice President, I apologize, he’s been doing the study on my behalf; he had a recommendation--and it was recently called to my attention again, we have so many victims of the Martial Law years, who have not gotten even a recognition formally from this government, from our government and they were victims," Aquino said.
Meanwhile, Binay said he is respecting the President's decision.

"It is the prerogative of the President and we must all accept, respect and support his decision," said Binay in a separate statement.


Me Thinks...

President Aquino should have just agreed with what Vice President Binay's recommendation. Yes, Former President Marcos did a lot of things that are against our Laws and Norms so I totally agreed that he should not be buried in "Libingan ng mga Bayani" (National Heroes Cemetery). A lot of the citizen would rally about that and some of the victims during his regime would not find it right. I think he would rest in peace if he is buried in Ilocos Norte wherein his people still believes in him and loves him there. That would be alright.

But he should at least be given military honors since he is a Former President. He should be given honors and respect as a former President of our country. He may have appear as a monster to some Filipino but we should also look at the facts that during his reign he made the Philippines known throughout the world. His projects are brilliant and until now some of the bridges, building and roads are still being in use because all the materials are quite good and "hindi minadali at tinipid!"

Remember Former Defense Secretary Angelo Reyes burial issues? He was buried in Libingan ng mga Bayani and was buried with military honors. He committed suicide because of the controversy he was buried up into his neck of the rampant corruption in the AFP. He should not have been buried in that cemetery because he died with questionable honor if he is guilty or not. It just made all that act hilarious and made all our national heroes be buried with a corrupt official.

I know that with power there would be a lot of temptations and one might be corrupted and Former President Marcos succumb to that and so made a lot of things that made him so hateful. Such a pity! All that brilliance gone to waste!

I know I don't have a lot of say on this matter since I'm just a lowly citizen and all decisions on that matter rest to our President but he should have just say so at the beginning that this is his decision on Marcos burial. He only made Binay make those recommendations so that he won't be accused as biased. But then again all of this are all pure politics! But with all of this matter it also made it so showbiz!

Politicians should just have been direct to the point! State some facts! "yun wala nang paligoy ligoy pa!" Be firm on their decisions and live with it.

Just adding my two cents on this issue ^_______^
