Movie review: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

I want to watch it again! Me and my friends were all laughing all the time while watching the movie because its very hilarious. Its like the main genre of the movie is comedy. All of the characters throws witty lines to each other especially baby Groot (even though he’s just saying I am Groot with his baby voice) and Rocket.

Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 is a sequel about the Guardians of the Galaxy who, after vol.1, has been saving the galaxy from various villains. The first villain they’ve encountered, even though she’s not supposed to be a villain because of Rocket stealing the special batteries, is Ayesha. But the main villain is Ego, Star Lord’s father. Due to his selfish intents, he starts impregnating different life forms from every planet he has been to in search of finding the second Celestial. He invited Star Lord along with Gamora and Drax to his planet and educated Star Lord of his powers. He was about to be successful when he spilled out that he planted a tumor to Star Lord’s mother which led to her death. The guardians along with Yondu, Mantis and Nebula helped Star Lord reach the planet’s core which is Ego’s heart. However, only a small creature can fit and travel right to the core of the planet and this began one of my favorite scene in the movie. Rocket instructs baby Groot to bring the bomb to the core and push the button which will give them minutes to get out of the planet but since baby Groot doesn’t follow instructions well yet, he keeps on pointing on the button which will blow instantly. A very funny scene indeed because they Rocket even asked Star Lord for a tape. I mean who in the world can have a tape in a battle scenario? πŸ™‚ LOL Eventually they were successful but Yondu sacrificed himself in order for Star Lord to live. In the end, a funeral was held and the Ravager community honor Yondu for the last time.

There are 5 end credit scenes in the movie and I think one of them is the most important for the upcoming Marvel movies and this is Ayesha’s creation of Adam Warlock. All of the infinity stones have been identified in the past Marvel movies and only of them is missing which is the soul gem. In the comics, Adam Warlock holds the soul gem and is one of the main characters in the Infinity War. I hope the next Marvel movie will show more details about him.

All in all Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2 is a movie that is full of laughs. Its like every character has lighten up from their kind of dark personality from vol. 1 even Nebula. They have this familial vibe which makes them able to throw hilarious comments to each other.Β  And I really love baby Groot! He’s really a baby there that’s why he’s not that involve in the fighting scenes. He’s just dancing his way around during the fighting scenes. It’s a really cool movie that you won’t be bored watching. πŸ™‚



Blogging challenge day 10: What is your most unrealistic life goal?

I’ve been fond of reality tv shows whether its American or Korean. There’s this show that I saw as a commercial while I was watching The Kardashians. I forgot the series name but its a reality show about rich kids living their very glamorous life. Its my unrealistic life goal to live luxuriously life where money is not a problem with my family, friends and my special someone. Sounds like a perfect life isn’it? Who knows, one day it can all come true for me and I’ll be flying my way from one bucket list place to another. 😊

Blogging challenge day 9: Who can you be nicer to? Your parents? Your best friends? Your Starbucks baristas? Yourself? Jot down a quick list.

I am always nice to anyone even if that person is not nice to me or its a person I don’t like.Β  And if there’s someone I don’t like, I try my best to not deal with that person by avoiding them at any cost. Its called maturity and besides, it will just be stressfulΒ  plus sinful to be rude to people.

New habits

I can’t believe that after 40 days of not eating pork and beef and not indulging into social media except Youtube, I’ve come to develop new habits.

Today, even though my mom cooked me bacon for breakfast and roasted pork for lunch, I didn’t eat that much of it. I ate my usual viand which is fish and made myself full with fruits. I’m not craving for pork that much but I don’t know about beef. Maybe its a different thing when a juicy steak is right in front of me. I love steak!

I’ve also fasted on social media like Facebook, Buzzfeed, Instagram and Twitter. Out of all the four applications, Twitter is the one I’ve missed most and I think I posted about 4 tweets today. But with Facebook and Instagram, I’m fine even if I’m not using them. Plus with Facebook, I don’t post that much because there are non-sense comments at times and non-sense posts on my feed.

It really takes a huge amount of discipline to develop new and good habits. I’m so proud of me! πŸ™‚

Blogging challenge day 8: Write down 10 things you love about yourself.

This is really a narcissistic idea but who else can love myself but me. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m a very positive person. As my first love told me 17 years ago, as long as there’s life, there is hope.
  2. I’m an explorer. A wanderlust you might say. Whenever we travel, I want to try the foods, indulge in the culture and go sight seeing.
  3. I love taking risks because I know I can learn a thing or two about the experience
  4. I’m flexible and open-minded. I know not everything can go well with one’s plan
  5. I feel I have an old soul because I still love the old norms and old anything.
  6. I’m a dreamer. I want to reach one goal after another
  7. I’m a friendly person as what everybody’s first impression is to me.
  8. Though I’m a friendly person, I’m a proud keeper of the best people in the world that are my so-called everlasting friends.
  9. I can put up and stay with people, even if they’re being hard on me, as long as I feel that I’m needed and I’m valued
  10. I know what or who I want. I don’t have to answer to anyone but myself.

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

Because of this Koreanovela, I really know now what I want in a man. Its really because of Park Hyungsik that’s why I watched this one. *So dreamy*

It’s about Do Bong Soon (Park Bo-young) who was born with super human strength which was pass on through generations of women in their family. If they use their powers by hurting innocent people or abusing them, they will forever lost it. That’s why Do Bong Soon only uses it to help and save people who needs helping. One day, while she was helping a school bus driver who was being bullied by gangsters, she was seen by Ahn Min-hyuk (Park Hyungsik) while she was performing her super strength. She was then hired by Min-hyuk who was the CEO of a big company as his body guard. That’s how their lovestory started even though Bong Soon has her eyes on her first love Gook Do (Jisoo).

Its a mix of romance, comedy and crime because of the gangsters who where after Hyungsik and the annoying kidnapper who where after skinny and pretty women in the place where Bong Soon lives in. No wonder it has high ratings because the story is fast phase and very good. I really love the personality of Hyungsik in the story because of his love for Bo-young’s character. Even though Bo-young doesn’t like him at first but since he was very persistent with his feelings, Bo-young fell for her. And he’s always there for her even at the midst of danger. They’re both willing to sacrifice each other’s lives for each other. To add up to the story are the humorous characters like the gangsters, Bo-young’s family and Min-hyuk’s assistant. Another must watch Koreanovela!


Blogging challenge day 3: Four important things money can’t buy

The four important things money can’t ever buy are family, friends, memories and skills. 

Those four things are the most important things to me that I know money can never buy. We are gifted since we were born with our own family and I’m so lucky to have my bunch as my family forever because no matter how bad a day can be or how much pain I go through, they’re there for me always backing me up. I can endure everything because I have them. 

My friends are also a gift I proudly earned through the years. Some are far away, some I don’t talk to often but they’re always there when I need them. I’m so thankful for them even though there was a time when I don’t talk to them often, but when the time came that I needed them most, they were there. They help me get through one of the most lowest point in my life.

Memories are created through experiences and are surely can’t be bought by money. And skills are developed individually through trainings and experiences as well. 

There are a lot of things money can’t buy thats why there’s a saying that money can’t buy happiness.

Scary day

Just this week, a 5.5 magnitude earthquake happened in one of the provinces here in the Philippines. And it happened again today but it has a 7 magnitude and its in the same province. The only difference from the other day and today was that it was felt on a lot of places in Luzon, Philippines. I thought I was just dizzy because I’ve just woken up from my afternoon nap and then I felt my bed shaking. However it was the earthquake happening already.

Earthquake are really scary because you’ll never know when and where it will struck. Buildings and infrastructures here in the Philippines are mostly frail and are not of good construction that’s why it will be a big mess if a huge earthquake happen, especially in Manila itself. All we can do is really prepare ahead and be alert at all times.

Blogging challenge day 2: First morning thought

I want more sleep – that’s my first thought in the morning because I haven’t slept much last night. Maybe I’m not really used to sleeping with someone beside me that’s why whenever we have sleepovers I find it hard to really sleep. I realize that I have so many conditions or standards on so many things that I’m thinking if someone can really put up with me. Well someone did before but eventually he gave up. It doesn’t really bother me that much everyday, maybe because its not my priority right now. I hope when the time comes that all is well in my career and financials, he’ll come through. 

Follow up question on the first morning thought, if its negative is that how to change it to positive. I found a lot of outlets for negative thoughts like talking to friends, listening to music, playing mobile games, watching korean series, working or going out for a walk. Though the negative thought didn’t bother me in the morning but lack of sleep did. I was dizzy all afternoon that I was afraid that I’m going to faint. I badly need some snooze right now.

Blogging challenge day 1 – What made you happy today?

I know its a shallow thing but believe me, when your a programmer and your program works the way it should do, it can really make your day. So thats what happen to me today, the pr0gram that I’ve been agonizing for so many days now has finally worked. Another thing was that my long time crush is still single πŸ™‚ Earlier today my friend told me that she and my crush are going somewhere and my crush is bringing along someone. At first I was stopping myself from asking who it is but eventually I asked in a way that its not obvious that I’m jealous. Our friends are not that 100% in favor of my affection for my crush thats why I just keep silent about it. Good thing that the friend his bringing along is a guy πŸ™‚ Lastly, meeting up with friends and catching up can really change someone’s day and it did for me.
