Farewell, Brittany Murphy...

Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy died on December 20, 2009. She apparently collapsed in her bathroom but firefighters still tried to revive her. She was then transported to Cedars Sinai Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival due to cardiac arrest. This is really sad to hear especially that Brittany's only 32 years old. She was best remembered for her role in Clueless, 8 mile, Girl, Interrupted and she also lent her voice as Gloria the penguin in Happy Feet. May you rest in peace, Brittany...

We Have A Visitor

We will be having a visitor this afternoon, my brother just informed me. Our visitor is actually my brother's ex-girlfriend and she happened to be very close to our family. His ex-gf is now based in Illinois and she worked as a nurse. She's a doctor in her homeland, too. We thought they would end up together, despite witnessing their petty quarrels and bickerings but they finally parted ways after 4-5years of being together. However, her friendship to our family remains and I even got her as a godmother for my daughter. She married later but she and my brother remained friends.

My brother also married few years later. In all fairness, his wife is nice and very down to earth. My family is actually blessed to have in-laws who are supportive and caring especially to our mom.

Things may turned out differently for my brother and his ex-flame but it's great to know that the friendship remains. My brother is happily married (& with kid) and his ex is successful in her field of endeavor.

My TV Options

A lot of people are using Direct TV because it brings the very best satellite dish system for their home and gives them total control over how they receive and watch great satellite TV programming.

Directv also offers more value than cable television because it offers the best packages and features, too. And you don't even have to worry if you are planning to move to another state because there's Direct TV everywhere.

If you are from New York and will transfer to California, you can have your local channels in your area available thru Direct TV in California. Make sure to include your zip code also and everything's ready right before you.


I love this movie very much! I've watched Chicago for over three times and I'm planning to watch it again. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere were superb in the characters they performed and I've to include Lucy Liu, too, even though she had a small appearance in the film.

Chicago is a story about two girls who were put behind bars because of the murder they committed. But these two warring ladies were trying to get media attention and trying to outdo each other. They were both vying for the miss popular title.

Anyway, Chicago is a musical-comedy story plus check out Richard Gere's great tap dance moves!

Platform Beds

We are about to move out and we are quite busy packing our things. But since our place is currently bare right now, my family and I are temporarily staying at my mom's place. My mom is generous enough to accommodate us in her room however, we could hardly to fit in her bed. It's a nice bed actually but since there are three of us sleeping in her double size bed, it was a bit crowded. Back in our place, we have two beds because the other one is not so sturdy. We were thinking of acquiring platform beds that we found while searching the net.

This bed features cutting-edge contemporary European designs, elegant modern bed frames, upholstered headboards, clean lines and simple construction. They also have exclusive collection of Italian and European designer. It's also guaranteed that their authentic platform bed collection is manufactured in Europe by original designers.

However, at present, this is just our one of our plans. We still have to prioritize things and when everything's settled, then we will think about that again.

But in case you are interested to know more about platform beds, feel free to visit their site, too, and I assure you that you can chose a lot of great beds just right for your bedroom!

Amanda Knox Verdict

I've read this news on the net awhile ago and I can't believe what this young lady had done. Amanda Knox, an American College student, and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty for stabbing to death her roomate, Meredith Kercher, a 21-year-old student from England.

Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison and Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years. The two also were found guilty of sexual assault to Meredith Kercher.

I don't know exactly how I would react to this story. It's really hard to judge but after reading this article, I guess all I can say is that how these young kids wasted their lives. If they were indeed influenced by drugs, I hope other people will learn something out from this. They should see the effect on drugs and I guess it's also necessary that parents should see that their kids are at the right company.

To know more about this story, please refer to CNN Justice. You can read how the trial went and how the verdict was read to the accused.

Torrents Search Engine

Watching TV for me these days is a luxury. I hardly had time to watch television because I need to attend to my household chores first before anything else. I would love to watch some shows but I just can't keep up. In the morning, I need to prepare breakfast for my family, drive my kid to school, clean the house, wash or iron clothes then prepare lunch and in the evening, prepare dinner, take care of the things needed for my family and review my child's lessons. At some other time, I need to go to bank then pay our water, telephone and electric bills. I think I barely had time for myself.

Going back to my favorite shows, I guess I've missed a lot of episodes like Smallville and Grey's Anatomy. There were some great movies that I was not able to watch, too, but I'm glad my husband found one site that is very helpful. At torrents download, he was able to get from them some shows or movies that I missed. And I am so thankful because I was able to watch it at my own convenience.

If you experienced the same kind of dilemma, I suggest that you go to their site and you'll have everything you'll need!

Harry Potter

I've read Harry Potter books volumes 1-5 few years ago but I've finished reading volumes 6-7 just recently. Out of these 7 books, I only owned 5 (volumes 1, 2, 4, 6 and 7). Much to my regret because I can hardly find these books in any bookstore. I wish somebody out there would lend me their copy of 3 & 5 as I want to read them again. Don't worry, I'll return it intact and dust-free :D

J.K. Rowling is really a good story-teller. Her book, Harry Potter, entertained me so much that I read my old HP books again. I hope to pass these books to my daughter when she's old enough to read and understand the story.

I've watched the movie version of Harry Potter, too. So far, the 1st 5 films were great but I was a bit disappointed with the 6th installment. They've changed a lot of plot and they focused more on the love story of the teen-age wizards. I hope that there won't be too many changes in the 2-part finale of HP7 especially since it's the most anticipated movie in year 2010/2011.

Raising A Father Book

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Raising a Father. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my favorite pastimes is reading a book. If you've noticed, I love featuring some of the books that I've read and I tried to share my opinion or views, too. Lately, I browsed the net and found another interesting book to read. The title of the book is Raising a Father, authored by Arjun Sen, and I really hope to own a copy of this.

After reading the summary of this book, I got carried away. It talked about a father's journey to understand and learn about his daughter. It also took him 37 years to realize that he did not know his daughter. So, he quit his job and began his journey as a real dad. The father was really busy from his corporate job and his young daughter used her charm, patience, love, and her caring nature to train her dad to become a better father and a better person.

Personally, I have good relationship with my deceased father. And for those whose father is still alive or whose father is estranged to them, I recommend that you try to read this book. I believe that you will learn something out from it. Most especially to the busy fathers out there, I highly suggest that you grab a copy of this, too. The presence of a father really matters to the kids and I will never forget the line said in one of the movies that I've watched that "a child without a father is like a house without a roof".

Here's Raising A Father Book trailer by Arjun Sen. Enjoy the video!

Just An Update

I was quite busy lately that I was not able to post entries in my blog. I wish I could write about the Grammy Nominees for year 2010 but I guess some of you already heard about it. Even the scandal that surrounds Tiger Woods or news about the 3rd installment of Stephenie Meyer's 3rd book installment, Eclipse, is already a passé.

Anyhoo, I hope to post few entries today and hope to bloghop and visit my friends' great blogs as soon as I'm not so tied with my current day to day activities anymore.

And oh, I just can't believe it's already December! And I haven't thought any preparation for the holidays yet. Oh well, I guess I still have 2 more weeks to worry so might as well focus my activity for the day.
