Blade Runner

Harrison Ford

Its too bad she won't live; but then again, who does? - Gaff

After months of not having been able to watch this video lent by my boss, I was finally able to - and I liked it. Although there were much to be desired in terms of effects, I love the sets, the story,  the dialogue, the acting, the dark atmosphere of the film, and of course, Harrison Ford. The movie looked like something straight out of the web pages of Web Urbanist, an art/design website which I frequent.

Books, nails and Conan at home

I always tell my friends to go to bookstores that are away from academic and financial areas. People in the know haven’t gone to these bookstores, and one is bound to find a good buy in these hard-to-reach places. I happen to be close to such a bookstore, a branch of National Bookstore right behind our neighbourhood. They have a bargain rack, and I got a pretty neat stack of sale books! Lately I’ve been particularly interested in craft books with colourful pictures, (a relaxing change from all the words I got exposed to in law school), and these are the books that I got:

From the top: Wedding Flowers (50 pesos), Holistic Herbs (50 pesos), Decorative Frames (30 pesos), Painting Ceramics (30 pesos), Painting Glass (30 pesos)

Cheap, aren’t they? I had to come back to the bookstore because they charged me 127.50 for a 50-peso book. At least they corrected themselves.

Frisbee Afternoon and Morning Jog

Spent my Saturday afternoon playing ultimate frisbee with my high school friends! I've tried this sport before, with my office mates, but never really took interest in it. This time, with my friends, I got to know it better! Although I went home with my right arm bruised from catching frisbees all afternoon, I had a great time! I wanna learn this sport a lot better.
