Goals for 2012

5 Jan

I don’t believe in making New Year resolutions for the simple reason that I always fail to follow them.

But I have really simple goals for 2012 and I think they’re all doable.

1. Get an oven

This is the most complicated of all my goals since it involves finally fixing everything in our new (old na) home and moving into it.  When we’ve done that, that’s the only time I can get an oven.

2. Learn how to bake French Macaroons

Oops! I think this is even more complicated than the first since perfecting the French Macaroon takes a lot of practice.

3. Learn how to drive

This is probably the easiest to accomplish since I can do this by a) getting a student driver’s license, and b) enrolling in a basic driving course.

But now, while writing this, I realized that this isn’t the easiest but the hardest to achieve of all.

Because I don’t want to just drive —  I want to look like Angelina Jolie while driving.

Have a goal-filled 2012 y’all!

‘It’s all for L.O.V.E.’

1 Nov

Blah…Spent the whole of October 31 in bed due to chills and high fever.  I’d been planning to take Maru and the kids to MOA for the Halloween trick or treat but since there’s Santi and the fever, I opted to stay home and curl up in bed.

But Mike dragged me out of bed to watch Michael Jackson’s This Is It. Kating kati na siyang manood so we caught the last full show at SM San Lazaro.

What can I say?  It was a beautiful documentary and it showed how meticulous Michael was when it came to his craft.  He wanted everything to be done perfectly.  And he had a way of talking to people.  He’d tell them, “It’s all for love. — L.O.V.E.” right after giving them orders.  Pine-pep talk sila ni Michael, haha!

The Michael I saw in this documentary wasn’t the sluggish, propofol-induced Michael I had pictured.  Of course his body movements were slower than when he first debuted the moonwalk in the early 80’s.  But This Is It painted a really healthy, happy, and passionate Michael Jackson.

I felt sad after watching though.  He could have delivered a really great show in London, I’m so sure of that.

May kulang lang sa documentary — it didn’t show him doing the moonwalk! Que horror, that’s what I’d been wanting to see pa naman.  Buti na lang, watching This Is It was also like watching a fashion show.  I love the jackets, especially the interesting shoulder pads.

Anyway, I had a good 30 minutes of “Human Nature” and “Wanna Be Starting Someting” LSS before I decided to put on the DVD of the Katherine Heigl-starrer Knocked Up. It was a cute, predictable film. I think I slept halfway through and when I woke up it felt like I didn’t miss a thing.

Afterwards, was suddenly reminded of my favorite twins next to Charlene and Aga’s — the Jolie-Pitt twins!

So here I am in front of the computer at this ungodly hour, Googling the latest photos of the fabulous Jolie-Pitt twins, Knox and Vivienne.  And — voila! — finally found a recent photo taken in Amman, Jordan.

WTF were they doing in Jordan?

This photo was said to have been uploaded by a fan on Twitter/Twitpic and was taken last October 2 at the Licky Licious ice cream shop in Amman.  My gad! I would have fainted if I were that lucky fan.  And look at the kiddos — so adorable!

And that’s it pancit.  Off to bed I go.
