Man VS Fish

leave a comment »

We found ourselves a new hobby.

Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve been fascinated with the art of fishing. I grew up near a river where a lot of locals’ favorite past time is fishing. Early in the morning, people gather by the riverside with their rods and baits and spend the whole day fishing. Whoever catches the biggest fish goes home with a bragging right and a delicious dinner. There even came a time when fishing was so big, they had to organize a tournament that was held in Tabangao, Batangas City.┬áComplete with a committee, boats and coast guards, the tournament pushed through. The contest was sponsored by San Miguel Beer and people around the country joined.

Then, we moved to a new house. I’ve forgotten everything about it. My memories were triggered by a friend of mine a few days ago when he asked me to join him on a fishing trip near Philippine Ports Authority. Our first fishing trip and both of us caught a fish. After that, a lot of our buddies became interested with it and wanted to join the next fishing trip. I even asked my brother from Canada to bring our father’s fishing rod when he goes home for his vacation this coming July.

These pictures were taken in during our fishing trips in Pinamucan, Batangas and near PPA.

Back to reality. Last weekend was a blast. My energy was maxed out because I did a lot of stuff, but it was fun though. We went to my good friend Aeibie’s place in Mabini, Batangas and enjoyed the bonfire by the beach while we were eating, drinking, listening to some good music and swapping stories.

awesome flicks (vol.2)

leave a comment »

Let’s get down to business, shall we? Today I’m here to scrutinize Thor. NOT! Who am I kidding, the movie is friggin’ awesome! I wasn’t expecting to watch it in 3D because I don’t welcome the thought of it being less cooler in a normal cinema, but when we arrived at the movie house, they’re only showing it in 3D so might as well go with the flow. The first few moments in Asgard was amazing. I knew it to be very promising. But what’s awesome is when he’s on earth, trying to be mortal and all. I didn’t expect to get a few laughs from the God of thunder himself. Natalie Portman is as charming as always.

I’ve bee noticing that a lot of film adaptations from comic books and graphic novels are have been bombarding the big screen lately. And I heard there’s more to come. The Dark Knight rises, Green Lantern, Captain America, X-Men: First Class, Avengers and a whole lot more. To start off with Thor, I think we’ll have a great year ahead of us comic book geeks!

awesome flicks (vol.1)

haven’t been excited for a movie in a while. Today, the crew and I are planning to hit the cinemas and watch Thor. I’ve been hearing a lot of feedbacks about it and I guess it’s about time to see for myself. The last time I went to a movie house was back when The Dark Knight was still on the big screen. That was I guess a couple of years ago. I prefer watching movies at home.

Speaking of movies, I’ve been busy downloading a lot of torrent flicks lately. Last night, I watched 13 Assassins. It was amazing. 13 Assassins is a Japaneses movie and considered as one of the best action flicks of 2010 though it was underrated. The movie is about 13 samurai and their mission to eliminate a power tripping lord. What’s great about the movie is that they did not use a lot of special effects. They barely rely on the story itself and the traditional fight scenes where a lot of katana slashing took place. I’ll stop blabbering to save myself from spoiling the movie for you guys.

Hey, I got an idea. Starting today, I’ll try to post and review movies as much as I can. So expect to see a lot of film reviews from now on.

***I’m no film critic so don’t go hating. Everything will be based on my own opinion so if you don’t like what you’re reading, go F yourself. Hahaha. Just kidding. ***
