The Notebook

7:15 pm PHT

I expected the movie to be cheesy and mushy. It is.

I expected that I won’t cry like I did with A Walk to Remember. I failed.

The Bourne Supremacy

12:53 pm PHT

My most favorite scene in the movie would probably be the car chase in Moscow.

11:06 pm PHT

UP Fight!

7:15 am PHT

If the UP Fighting Maroons get into the Final Four, I promise to watch their game live—something I have never done before. (That is, of course, if the game is on a Saturday and there are tickets left to buy!)

Who Wants Paintball Tickets?

6:19 am PHT

One of my favorite FM stations, Jam 88.3, regularly runs trivia contests where they ask listeners for the answer to trivia questions. Winning answers that come via their textline are awarded goodies like paintball tickets, gift certificates to DermStress, and movie passes to Ayala Cinemas.
