Why Watching Comedy Sitcoms Has Become My Most Unproductive Task

I’m a slacker. While I rejoice in having to post more than ten blog posts in the past month, I have not earned a single penny out of it. It has become a hobby, but I’m hoping that I could at least garner more traffic and follows in the future. What makes it worse is that I have been into comedy sitcoms again (since September). … Continue reading Why Watching Comedy Sitcoms Has Become My Most Unproductive Task

‘Mindanao’ Film Review 2, from Another Point of View

What’s great about art and consuming it is the gift of interpretation, reflection, and (more) research. Whether the art form is profound or not, there’s always something we can learn from it. Now, those learnings and interpretation are still based on how we were brought up, the things that shaped us, and most importantly, the things which we are most exposed to–our family, peers, the … Continue reading ‘Mindanao’ Film Review 2, from Another Point of View

CNA’s ‘Beyond the Viral Video’ Discusses the Effects of Social Media

Only a few of us would admit that we’re addicted to social media. It’s rarely discussed in the cute cat videos, senseless (and witty) memes, rubbish viral videos, and other trending content we mindlessly scroll through on our favorite social media platforms. The reality is that since many of us are on social media more than 4 hours a day, it already affects us significantly. … Continue reading CNA’s ‘Beyond the Viral Video’ Discusses the Effects of Social Media

CNA’s ‘The Longest Day’ Showcases How Climate Change Affects Asia

Climate Change is so real. Yes, most of us probably believe it. We even condescendingly hit US President Donald Trump for saying that he doesn’t. And yes, again, let me tell him and people like him that it is indeed REAL. I’ve noticed it from five years back–how the light coming from the sun seems orangey. I don’t remember days being colored like it–how the … Continue reading CNA’s ‘The Longest Day’ Showcases How Climate Change Affects Asia

Park Seo-Joon Kissed Me in a Dream

So, here’s what I remembered in my dream last night: I was on the way to the theatre with Park Seo-Joon, IU, and a couple of my real friends. In that dream, I knew that I have a real-life boyfriend, so I wasn’t flirting with Seo-Joon. But he kept following me. In fact, I intentionally slept in the dream because I was irritated by him. … Continue reading Park Seo-Joon Kissed Me in a Dream

‘Funny Girl’ Film Review

The 1968 musical rom-com was technically an ode to Fanny Brice, one of the most popular singer-comedienne during the 1930s just before World War 1 broke out. Albeit successful in reiterating Brice’s career and marriage, Funny Girl was highly sanitized. Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice was funny, heartwarming, and witty, but was nonetheless contrived. The real Fanny Brice was more audacious and anarchic. Her marriage … Continue reading ‘Funny Girl’ Film Review

Movie Fathers that Taught us Valuable Life Lessons

Mothers and fathers have different roles in society. Yes, we could always bend those “rules,” but in general, all humans have succumbed to what society has catechized in us, or what we should become. While a few parents might have bits of eccentricities, many fathers pride themselves as teachers, giving valuable lessons and advice. Some of them do so unconsciously, but all these lessons are … Continue reading Movie Fathers that Taught us Valuable Life Lessons

‘The World of the Married’ Korean Drama’s Remaining Episodes will be Rated 19+

On of the most (if not the most) controversial Korean drama to date is JTBC’s The World of the Married. I’ve seen several social media statuses posted about this drama, and it is more than surprising; the common words used are shocking, depressing, sick, and f*cked up. The drama is about a seemingly perfect marriage between Ji Sun Woo (Kim Hee Ae) and Lee Tae … Continue reading ‘The World of the Married’ Korean Drama’s Remaining Episodes will be Rated 19+
