Tessanne Chin is The Voice!!!

December 18, 2013

Tessanne Chin

Tessanne Chin

The 5th season the The Voice culminated today.

I am so happy that one of my favorites for this season, Tessanne Chin, from Adam Levine’s team, won the whole thing.

I’ve been rooting for her since the first time I heard her during her blind auditions, singing Pink’s rock number, Try. Every other performance she did on the show was just great and miles apart from the rest of the other artists.

While I had other favorites that I also would have loved to see win, it is without a doubt that Tessanne is the one most deserving of the win.

I look forward to seeing and hearing more of her music from here on. She is just a talented singer, and the music industry needs someone like her.

No Other Woman – Not a Review at All

October 16, 2011

I was with my mom when I watched this movie. I have to admit, I watched it because Anne Curtis is my mom’s favorite. She watches Showtime everyday (I swear). Watching this movie was not even a question.

I have read so many reviews and comments about No Other Woman. Most of them had biases (no matter how objective they say they are). Some of them just wanted to write or blog about it, not really caring if the content had anything GREAT for the readers. So what am I doing writing about the movie when almost everybody has already done that? Well, to be different, I want to write about the things I realized because of that movie.

First off, INFIDELITY is obviously the biggest issue in the story. There’s this hot married man who, since he got married to his beautiful wife, has not LOOKED AT any other woman anymore. He has be FAITHFUL to her despite his colorful past with women. Then, there’s this sweet, beautiful wife who hails from a nouveau riche family and has dedicated her life to taking care of her husband, supporting him, and making him happy. And, or course, there’s this hugely interesting, one-of-a-kind woman who is an heiress to a great fortune and looks at the world and relationships in a different way. Putting the three characters together would be explosive (which is exactly what the movie was both as a story and as a money making product).

With that said, CHEATING is not the only thing we can pick up from the story. Of course, you will need to dig deeper for you to appreciate what the entire movie meant to you. It takes patience, but with a couple of minutes of thinking through, you will actually find that the issue of be UNFAITHFUL was not really what struck you the most in the movie. For me, it that’s exactly what happened.

Most people would think that Kara (Anne’s character) was the one who started off the entire conflict by being the temptress that she was and by luring Ram (Derek Ramsay) into an illicit affair. That’s because all this time, Ram has been LOYAL to Charmaine (Cristine Reyes), and it was only when Kara came into the picture that he went astray. I LOOK AT IT DIFFERENTLY. Sometimes, when women are in a relationship, they fear that some vamp will come and steal their men. Because of he movie, I realized that being loyal is a constant work. You always need to work on it. Being FAITHFUL does not mean that you have never looked at anyone else other than your partner. Being LOYAL does not mean that you have stopped being attracted to other people. In fact, it is the complete opposite. FIDELITY means that you look at others, you SEE other people, you become ATTRACTED to them, you might even go further and FALL IN LOVE with someone else. The difference lies on what you do with those feelings. Being FAITHFUL means that you still have these stirrings for other people, but you know well enough how to say no, turn, and walk away. That’s what RAM should have done. He SHOULD HAVE been FAITHFUL at that moment when his entire being wanted to jump into KARA’s hell fire.

As for the wife’s part, I realized that when a man cheats, it is not always the man’s fault, or the mistress’, or even the wife’s. Sometimes, it is nobody’s fault at all. Sometimes, these ugly things happen, and we cannot really blame anybody for it. We cannot say that it was the man’s fault because he was weak when it came to temptation. We cannot say that it is the fault of the mistress because she wanted a portion of a land that was not hers to claim. We also cannot say it was the wife’s fault because she let herself go, lost her individuality, and just became plain and boring. Sometimes, things happen just because they did. No one wanted them to, but they did. All we can do is fight for what’s ours, fight for what’s right, and forgive every other person who got caught.

For the part of Kara, I can’t say I have any conclusions. I guess, I can say that mistresses or other women fall in love too. It is not always about SEX and the THRILL. Sometimes, it’s about FEELINGS. Maybe if RAM had not been too nice to her, she would not have fallen very deep in love. Sometimes, they, too, are victims.

Nobody really wins when INFIDELITY is added into the equation. We all lose something. We may move on, but we will never really get back whatever was lost. I can only hope that I will never have to be in the same situation as Charmaine, Ram, and Kara were. To everyone, LOVE is BEAUTIFUL and PAINFUL at the same time. It is not always CHEATING and THIRD PARTIES that destroy a relationship. Sometimes, WE do that job pretty well. However, that is not the point. The point is that when we love, we love without question without boundary, without inhibitions. Hearts, promises, and relationships may be broken, but the DESIRE to LOVE and BE LOVED is far greater than these three.

Saturday Games

April 3, 2010

I had a movie date with my mom earlier today. It should not come as a surprise if we watched the movie offered by Anne Curtis and Sam Milby. My mom loves Anne Curtis, with or without the wardrobe malfunction. I think she loves the fact that Anne Curtis is really trying to help a lot of people. Of course, the fact that Anne is probably one of the most beautiful faces in Philippines show business is more than enough for anyone to easily become her fan.

The movie was good. It had more then a couple of dramatic moments. The conflict was mostly internal. The characters needed improvement, but at least there were no cliche lines. The chemistry looked sincere and convincing. Of course, when you’re doing a movie with your ex-boyfriend, everything gets pretty much sincere. Anyway, I had fun hanging out with my mother today.

I am also playing another game in Facebook. My previous schoolmate sent me an invitation to this game call Treasure Isle. It’s created by Zynga. I like the concept of the game. Lately, the Facebook games have been dominated by games where you have to establish and build your own island resort, or hotel, or restaurant. Treasure Isle is not like any of that. It’s like Mafia Wars because it eats up energy for you to perform tasks. However, instead of being the most powerful mafia, your tasks are to dig up certain islands to find hidden treasures. It’s quite fun, actually.

If you have Facebook, you can add me up, so we can be friends. We can probably be neighbors too in whatever game you’re into… *wink*

Numerology

February 11, 2010

I had my name and my birthday analyzed earlier today. I’m not saying that I a totally into numerology. I was just curious, and I was excited to read that the results were quite accurate. Anyway, I want to share it here. I hope I don;t offend anyone who does not believe in numerology or metaphysics. 🙂

Your Inner or Soul’s Urge: This is spiritual and emotional expression more than physical. It is your heart-felt desires, your incentive, how you look at life. Here are your areas of personal satisfaction.       Number: 1
Usually not very emotional, you are in this life to take action.

You want to lead and direct.

You are independent at heart and desire to reach your goals by your own efforts and intelligence. You have a strong creative force with many original and interesting ideas. There is much inner strength available to you. Rarely do you shirk responsibilities.

You are proud of your abilities and seek opportunities to display your strength and usefulness.

Others will respect and help you, like a true leader deserves, so long as you acknowledge and validate the interests and desires of others as well as your own. Be kind and generous, and you can be a recognized leader.

You can display conceit and intolerance of people who are considered inferior — boastful, egotistical, critical, impatient of trifles — especially when you feel impeded. When you are headstrong, impulsive, or highly willful, you may appear contrary, bossy, dominating, or egotistical. You tend to be impatient with those who are resistant to change.

You can be reticent, and can lack self-confidence. Sometimes you won’t take a stand for fear of hurting others. Yet, something continually keeps urging you forward.

You want your home, spouse, and family to be a credit to you.

Overall, you are loyal in friendship, fair in business, a safe leader, and work diligently. You are capable of great accomplishment.

 

Your Personality: This is physical expression more than spiritual or emotional; your outer self, the way you express when meeting others. It may or may not be the real you.       Number: 11
Neat and clean; that’s your usual appearance. With a pleasing personality and gentle manner. You appear cooperative, diplomatic, and tactful. And you appear to adapt easily to varied circumstances and people from diverse backgrounds.

When you don’t get your way, you can become cunning and scheming, which may give a contrived or hypocritical appearance.

You attract people who want to be of assistance. You can be subtle and work behind the scenes to accomplish desired ives, being successful more through diplomacy than by coercion.

Try to wear soft, flowing, and neat clothing rather than loud and showy or plain and colorless.

 
 
Your Quiescent Self: Stripping away all outside influences, aspirations, ambitions, “shoulds”, and “shouldn’ts” — this is you when you are alone; just you and your dreams..       Number: 11
You are a Spiritual Leader, able to guide many along the road of your Truth. Your words are inspired. Your eyes glow with the unshakable divinity of your spirituality. You sense there can be glory in martyrdom, provided it inspires others to The Way.

Your thoughts and pleasure are you as an effective leader to the glory of goodness and all people you meet are or become part of your spiritual family.

 
 
Your Destiny or Ultimate Goal: This is your desired lifetime accomplishment. It is a key to a useful and happy life, and to feeling fulfillment during your latter days.       Number: 3
Your destiny lies in areas of creativity and its use to help people find inspiration and joy in living. As you express your artistic talents, your beauty, and an optimum mix of sincerity and joy, you come closer and closer to fulfilling your destiny — which also includes popularity, personal happiness, romantic love, and money.

You have integrity and are kind, patient, cheerful, artistic, creative, and a constant source of pleasure. And use your inspiration and imagination to spread your happiness by direct people contact and by writing, speaking, music, painting, decorating, or acting.

You are a social person and enjoy entertaining and being entertained — talkative and usually well dressed.

 
 
Your Life’s Path: Here are clues to what fate has in store for you. It indicates the type of encounters, events, and opportunities you are likely to experience along your physical life path.       Number: 4
Your life is filled with things practical, or making them so with patience, care, and accuracy. You have a strong sense of what is right and are naturally honest, conscientious, and sincere.

You are a worker and can be decidedly dedicated to your goals. In your work, you can be loyal, intense, and dedicated to the job at hand.

This Year’s Path: Here is what you are likely to encounter this year — your feelings, your predominant perspective, and the type of situations, circumstances, and opportunities you tend to attract during the calendar year.       Number: 3
This is the year to express your inspiration, your imagination, your creative thought, and your deep emotional feelings. You desire to do more entertaining this year and accept more invitations. Take time off to enjoy yourself.

You can give color and warmth to all levels of living. Be artistic. Express yourself joyfully. Now is the time to follow those inspirational and imaginative ideas you are so excited about. Follow your desire for self-improvement; the year is rich with opportunities for inner growth.

Allow your abundance of cheer and optimism to guide you.

 
 
Next Year’s Path.       Number: 4
This is a practical year; no long leisurely periods for dreaming, personal indulgence, or careless living. It is a time to build the firm and secure foundation upon which your future depends, using practical values and steady application. It is also the time to work out the details of that project you’ve been thinking about. Read the fine print of all transactions.

This is the year to find where you stand in life, and to be practical about it — to pay attention to details.

This year demands a lot of work, not only to improve the present but also to build practical foundations for the future. Your diligence brings commensurate rewards. With good sense, you can meet all requirements and experience satisfactory gain.

Your gatherings, meetings, parties, and trips are mostly related to work or business.

As part of the practical focus of this year, attend to health matters.

 
 
Last Year’s Path.       Number: 2
Harmonious associations are very important for you this year. The year’s success and good results will be obtained through diplomacy, cooperation, tactfulness, and good relationships. It is a year for receiving and sharing rather than aggressively pursuing your own way.

Your intuition and emotions are enhanced this year.

It is a busy year, with endless demands on your time. It is easier to work with others rather than doing things by yourself.

Your plans and developments may experience periods of delay. No need to worry about that. Things move slower this year.

The year can revitalize your peace of mind. It is a good time to strengthen your friendships.
