Sidney Sheldon: My First Love

Before I knew many authors (or before I knew any better) Sidney Sheldon was my first love.  I love all his books way back in college after I had a chance to read Master of the Game.  Actuallu, Master of the Game is one of my all-time favorite books. So last week, I discovered that my apad has an ebook reader and that it works well with books in .txt format.  Aside from my Sidney Sheldon book collection, I also have them in ebooks so I converted them all and they have been my companion for the past week.  I bring my apad with me to the doctor, to the LTO office and wherever I might need to while away the time reading.  And I have fallen in love with Sidney Sheldon all over again.  I guess first love really never dies.  Anyway, here is a list of his books and I hope you enjoy them too:

The Naked Face
The Other Side of Midnight
A Stranger in the Mirror
Bloodline
Rage of Angels
Master of the Game
If Tomorrow Comes
Windmills of the Gods
The Sands of Time
Memories of Midnight
The Doomsday Conspiracy
The Stars Shine Down
Nothing Lasts Forever
Morning, Noon and Night
The Best Laid Plans
Tell Me Your Dreams
The Sky Is Falling
Are You Afraid of the Dark

A Child's Imagination at Play!

I just want to share with you some of the things that my kid's imagination created! This was a game, where you fight by drawing your character. And I just find them so creative and cool!
 This is Manny Pacquaio, in case you haven't guessed and his punch is #1!
 And these are various characters they can choose from as their fighter.
 This was an actual fight scene.
 And this one too!
Oh, to be a child and be content with a make-believe world!

Do You Have A Book In You?

I was reading a friend's blog earlier and I saw one of the questions on the meme was "Do you, or have you ever thought, you have a book in you?" It got me thinking really hard about it and I have to say that this exact moment, I know I would love to write someday, but I don't have yet what it takes to write a good one.  Writing a book, or at least getting published is in my bucket list. But what to write and what it is going to be about, I have no idea yet.  There is no book idea brewing in my head, waiting to be written.  Is it because I can already write what I want to say here in my blogs?  I want to share a story, but what story, and what lesson, I don't know yet.  I really hope I have it somewhere in me to write a book. Hmm, one can always dream.

Bared To You: No 50 Shades

Okay, so I was taking precious time from work and some studying to read Bared To You, touted as good as 50 Shades.  Let me tell you this, if you have read 50 Shades, there is no reason why you should read this book: Its a Waste of Time. Nothing new in the plot. Enough.

Currently Reading: Bared To You

So I took off some time from reading financial books to give my brain cells time to recuperate and had to find something that requires nothing from me when I read it. And this is currently what I am reading-Bared to You, in the tradition of 50 shades.  I will try to write something about it later.

We Need A Tutor!

My kids are aged 15, 9 and 8 and they are studying in one school.  So when exam times are near, we are always on panic mode on the amount of reviews that needs to be done.  My sister does most of the reviewing with the younger kids as she is at home before me after her own classes.  She is now in 3rd year college and will now have her on-the-job training this coming semester.  This means she wont have time to help with tutoring the kids! That is why I badly need a tutor. My friend told me about online tutors like the eduboard and I am checking it out right now.  My kids have schedules when using the computers at home and if this is for something as great as online tutors, then its like hitting two birds with one stone.  They wont be just playing games online, but will also be learning at the same time.  This is actually a great idea and I am raring to show it to them when I get home. They will surely be excited and eager to try online tutoring. And my sister will be thrilled too, I am sure!

Brushing Up On My Math Skills!


Currently on my reading list because I need to brush up on my Math skills!  Since my boss showed his belief in my skills (even while I am full of self-doubt) and since I do not want to be a charity case, I decided that I need to help myself and remove the cobwebs from my brain. So no matter how boring the book is and no matter if I sometimes have to read the sentences twice and concentrate twice as hard, I will finish this book! I am now done with the first chapter, some 26 pages on a 792 page book so please keep me in your prayers, ha ha ha!

My Books are Safe and Dry!

Yes, we were flooded again by this nasty weather brought about by the unforgiving Habagat, but I am happy to announce that my books are all safe and dry! Since the water was rising slowly, I had time to pack my beloved books.  I was also afraid that the bookshelf would breakdown as the lower part was submerged in water so even if the water do not rise as high, then the books would get wet.  This time, I was not apprehensive about keeping my books dry as I already have them packed unlike before when I forgot all about them!  So yesterday, when it was time to put the books back, since the bookshelf is not as safe I think, all the books on the top shelf were replaced with stuffed toys and other lighter stuff. But the bottom shelf was still filled to overflowing with books to help support the whole book case.  Anyway, I told my sister we need to have a book sale, and she agreed, only to say that we will have more money to buy new books!

Unidentified Woman: A book review

(Guest Post) 
Unidentified Woman—a literary mystery novel about rape, revenge, and redemption—follows a young Mexican girl, Maria Sanchez, who is kidnapped on her way to school one morning. She is enslaved and repeatedly, brutally raped by paying costumers, mostly Americans. But she survives and grows up to become an independent young woman living in Los Angeles. She tracks down all those men who wronged her, exerting a deadly, unusual punishment. On her footsteps, following the police failure to capture her, is Gideon Gold: a reluctant, amateur private investigator, and a former commander of an elite Israeli paratroops unit and a Mossad secret agent. His frantic pursuit of the her takes unexpected twists and turns, culminating in a dramatic, compelling game of cat-and-mouse that will change both of their lives forever. 

 About the Author: Hillel F. Damron was born in Israel to parents who survived the Holocaust. He was an officer at an elite paratroops unit and was wounded in battle. He studied films at the London Film School and became a film director of TV documentaries, a feature film, and numerous video shorts. He is the award-winning author of a Sci-fi novel, short stories and film reviews. His novel Very Narrow Bridge, a first in the series of Gideon Gold’s Investigation, was published last year. This year in February he was awarded Moment Magazine’s prize for winning its memoir contest with his entry: The Sweet Life. And in the summer, August 15th, his second novel in the series of Gideon Gold’s Investigation will be published throughout the E-reader Universe. Be the first to read an excerpt, and have an initial clue on the road to solving the mystery: who is she, the Unidentified Woman, and what’s her story? 

 Here’s a short excerpt: I feel lucky today, Adela. I breathe the crisp spring air. I listen to the singing of the birds. I smell wild flowers. I shake my hair loose and let it fly. The promise of quiet is suddenly all around me, and I can hear myself thinking for the first time since I was kidnapped. Maybe there is a future for me after all, like Big Mamá said. I’m working alone, the way Mario told me to. Not with the other workers I saw on the way before we entered this narrow valley. The work is easy, much better than the hard work at the factory. I water the coca plants with a hose. That’s all I do. It’s a young field and the shrubs are about my size, no more than one meter and twenty tall. They don’t seem thirsty to me, the plants, but still, I fill this shallow circle that surrounds them with water. I just look at the water streaming so nicely. Then when it’s full, I move the hose to the next plant. I feel a gentle breeze coming down from the hills. I hear only birds and the whisper of the wind. I see the water swirling and I see the butterflies fly around me. My wish at this moment is to be a butterfly. But suddenly—don’t know how, don’t know why—I see a shadow in the water circling the plant. I hear footsteps, too. And when I raise my head to look, the man is too close for me to run away. He is tall and old and Gringo. He is wearing boots and a cowboy hat. Like in a movie we saw together once, Adela, in our village. Remember? I let the hose drop down from my hand and take a step back. That’s when he takes his hat off and throws it on the ground. His head is bald like a melon, and so ugly. He looks me up and down. He smiles. Evil smile. “You’re mine, Little Maria,” he says in Spanish with an American accent. How does he know my name? I hate that name. One day I’m going to change it. I turn around and begin to run. He chases after me and grabs me from behind. I scream but nobody hears me. Where is Mario? Where is Big Mamá? Where are the other workers I saw when we drove in here? Where is everybody?

Re-reading the Hunger Games


I just finished reading The Hunger Games book yesterday and I am now on Catching Fire. And I just found put that it was exactly a year ago when I read the first book. I re-read my books, especially the ones I love. I already lost count of how many times I have read my Harry Potter books and I never get tired of it. While I already know how the book will end, it does not stop me from still feeling excited, apprehensive, scared and sad all over again! Its not that I dont have new books to read, as I still have the Nicholas Flamel books by Michael Scott to read because my sister has been raving about it. But I am not in the mood for it, and I am in the mood for Hunger Games. Okay, back to my books now :)

Big John:The Inspiring Life of Mr. John


"Tycoon John Gokongwei Jr. is Forbes Asia’s fourth richest man in the Philippines. With a net worth of $3.2 billion, he has indeed amassed great wealth and power over the years. While he may be the rich man that we know today, it wasn’t the case many years ago. This July, Dream Big Books, an imprint of Summit Books, shares the life story of the man behind famous brands Chippy, C2, Robinsons Malls, and Cebu Pacific to name a few, through a children’s book called Big John. 

What was originally meant to be a personal birthday gift for John Gokongwei Jr.’s 85th birthday by his children turned into a book which the Gokongwei family has generously shared with the public. 

Written by Yvette Fernandez, and illustrated by Abi Goy, Big John tells the riches-to-rags-to-riches story of John Gokongwei Jr. who was once little John with no money at all.

Having lost his father at an early age and being the eldest child in the family, little John had to assume responsibility and be the man of the house. At a tender age of fifteen, he decided to become an entrepreneur where he bought and sold grocery items.

With heart, determination, and vision, little John was able to triumph over life’s difficulties and build the many businesses that his family owns today. Big John also gives insights on the path to entrepreneurship and lays down questions you should be able to answer with yes before you go into business. 

A heart-warming story about dreaming big, working hard and never giving up, Big John sets to inspire and teach the value of family more than anything.

A portion of the proceeds of Big John will be donated to the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation. Established in 1992 to support Philippine education, it has donated facilities, granted scholarships, and supported school programs in the country.

Dream Big Books is a collection of inspiring stories written for children that will kindle within them a desire to help change the world we live for the better.

Big John is available in newsstands, bookstores and supermarkets nationwide for only P125. For more details, visit www.summitmedia.com.ph/books or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/summitbooks."

Good To Great?

"#1 Bestseller, Two Millions Copies Sold" read the front cover, but this book has been on my table for more than a month now.  Is Good To Great really good? This is a management book and I cant seem to start reading it.  Hmm, is it a sign that I am in a wrong career? Oh well, I will let you know once I have started reading and finished reading my first management book.

Favorite Movie Quotes, err Book Quotes

Last night while I was tweeting away, one of the trending topics was about #favoritemoviequotes and of course, I had a few lines to add to it, but instead of movies, I would quote from my favorite books instead: 

'You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.' -To Kill A Mockingbird 

 'I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.'- To Kill A Mockingbird 

'I swear in that moment, we were infinite.'-Perks of Being A Wallflower. 'It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.'-Harry Potter

'The man with the briefcase can steal more money than the man with the gun.-The Godfather 

'I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.'-LOTR 

 These are just a very few of the quotes that I love and I realized that I havent been reading any classics lately and I should! 

 Kthnxbye, ha ha!

Who Can Be Christian Grey?

The girls at my office are having a debate as to who can better play Christian Grey on the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey and the choices are down to Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder.
 Both have that smoldering and haunted look and they can dominate all they want!  I am sure any girl would want to be their submissive!
Well, at least I personally know of two girls who would, ha ha!  What about you? Who do you think will make a better Christian Grey?

Zzzzzzzz and The Huntsman

Thanks to Nuffnang, I was able to get free tickets to advanced screening of Snow White and The Huntsman at Shangri-La cinema last Friday.  Good thing it was free because I would have really felt bad!

We all know the story of Snow White: skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, hair as black as night, la la la la. Anyway, so her mother died and her lonely father fell in love with Ravenna who was a witch.  And who prey on beautiful women so she stays the fairest of them all, until Snow White come of age. And then she escaped. And then the Huntsman who was supposed to hunt her became her protector. And there was also a young man who likes her but nothing happened. And then they met the dwarfs and they went somewhere where there are fairies and then there was a reindeer (?!) who blessed Snow White. Then one of the dwarfs died and then they were on their way to the castle of somebody. And then Snow White died because Ravenna turned into the young man who was into her and gave her an apple to bite.  The young man kissed her and nothing happened and then they brought her to the other castle. The Huntsman (aka Thor) kissed her and she woke up and made a speech and they somehow believed her.  They charged to the castle and after a short while and a disappointing fight, Kristen Stewart (aka Snow White, aka Bella) surprisingly beat Charlize Theron!    And then she was crowned Queen and she was breathing hard (aka as intense acting: think Bella Swan) and then she saw the Huntsman and it was over.

There are only two good things I can say about this movie: the eye candy that is the Huntsman (aka Thor) and the beauteous Charlize Theron.  But if I had to pay for the movie tickets, I would have felt robbed.  But since it was free, it was okay.

If you got confused with my review, my only defense is that I was there and I was confused too.  Like one of the tweets I read, I gave it a rating of 5, out of 50!

Fifty Shades of Grey

I am reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy and I want to put a sign on my door that says, "DO NOT DISTURB."  Ha ha, wow this is literary porn and it is quite enjoyable, no pun intended!  And I am amazed at some scenes(such energy!) and can't help noticing that Bella could be Ana and Christian could very well be Edward.  Oh well, I am on to the 3rd installment and while I find some fault and would skip some of the I love you, I need you, I love you more (ugh!) some parts have great potential.  So back to reading :-)

The World Is A Book!

That is what I feel when I read: that I am transported to wherever the story is happening.  And I guess only people who does read can relate.  But when you read, you escape to that place and you see things the way the characters see them.  I travel back in time or I go to the future, or even out of this world.  I wish other people can experience this!

My Reading List

I have not been near a book for some time now and I think its because several things are happening right now that needs my attention.  I have this tendency to be where my book is so I really cant concentrate on reading right now.  I tried reading two books already but they remained unfinished.  So I will try and start reading these books now: Ive Got You Number and David Baldacci's Absolute Power.  Wish me luck in finishing these books soon so I can make a proper review.

The Book You Read Depends on Your Mood!

Okay, so maybe its just me. But last week when I was fighting with my husband, I can go through a Judith McNaught book easily. But now that we are in the process of making up, it takes effort not to snort at one of her books that I am currently reading. I am in the mood for some Sidney Sheldon or some John Grisham books.  Or even some Harry Potter, my comfort books. Hmm, I wonder what mood should I be in before I can open my finance books, ha ha. I should be suicidal or really in a bad mood!

Cockroach!!!



Camera Critters

There is a cockroach in my bag! Can you imagine the confusion that would have ensued had it been a real cockroach?  Yep, its plastic and a plaything! But it still gives me the creeps!
 And here is my nephew posing with the cockroach on his forehead!  I wonder if he would be as cool if it was the real thing, ha ha! He is a such an adorable kid!

The Avengers: Must Watch Movie!

 Thanks to Nuffnang and PLDY myDSL, I won free tickets and my son and I were able to watch the special screening of The Avengers at Shang Cineplex last night.  I am not a big fan of the comics series and I am not that familiar with the story, but I loved it!
 Tony Spark as Iron Man was still as good as in his own series and when asked what he was without the armor, and he replied genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, that brought the house down.
 Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk did it for me.  I love Mark Ruffalo and his scruffy edgy portrayal of the man with the other man thing.  He was my ex after all, ha ha.
Another scene that I super loved was when The Hulk picked up a ranting Loki and threw him around like a rag doll.  The laughter in the cinema was deafening.  The movie was great nd I guess we all know that by now and if its the only movie you will watch this summer that you are set.
Special thanks again to Nuffnang and PLDT myDSL for the wonderful chance to watch a great movie and for the photo booth, ha ha!

What are you reading?!?

These coming months, I would have to bid my usual reads goodbye and start seriously looking at finance and accounting books. I was  recently promoted and in the immortal words of the uncle of Spiderman, great power comes with great responsibility (not that I gained greatest powers, ha ha).  So it will be my way of being more responsible.  I will study so that words that usually just rings a bell, will now make sense to me. I am also seriously thinking of going back to school.  This will mean taking this reading thing to a whole new level! So when you go back this blog and read about my reviews on finance and accounting books, yes, its still me reading those books!

I Can Read from My APAD!

Remember that APAD that my husband gave me for my birthday last year? Well, I recently discovered that it has a built-in IReader that can function as a kindle as long as the book is in .txt format! Yes, I have been re-reading the Hunger Games trilogy, and now the Artemis Fowl books using it. The only problem is, the battery gets drained after 2 hours. Although its irritating, its actually good for my eyes to take a little rest every now and then while I charge the APAD, he he. So, while I am waiting for my Kindle to arrive, my APAD works just fine!

Battleship Movie Review

Last night, we were given free premiere tickets to the advanced screening of the movie, Battleship. Though it was past 6pm when I got the invitation from my officemate, my husband immediately agreed to go to Glorietta 4. We also invited our friends Ehms and Paul, and they traveled by motorcycle from Malinta, Valenzuela to Makati in less than 45 minutes just to see this movie! And wow, it was worth it!
The plot is simple: we sent a signal to outer space to a planet called G, which resembled Earth in its distance from the distance and could have some forms of life. And as a response, they sent back 5 ships, 4 of which landed in the Pacific Ocean where the US Navy was having its war games exercises. One ship crash landed in Hong Kong where more than a thousand people were killed and that ship turned out to be their communications ship. Then one of the US Army ships went and checked the ships that landed on the sea, a wall of force field separated the three ships from the rest. All of these ships were destroyed in the process. The battleship, the USS Missouri landed the final blow to the enemy and when the force field collapsed, the fighter jets finished them off and the satellite which the aliens were trying to use to communicate back home.
We thoroughly enjoyed the movie because there were lots of references, whether intentional or not to other movies. Sam Shane looked like Megan Fox from Transformers. The ships that can transform into something else were from the Transformers. The aliens were like Bioman and Iron Man! The army man Mick, with his artificial legs looks like Mike Tyson and he did punch the alien on the face! The maneuver they did with the USS Missouri was like a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean and Tokyo drifting. There were lots of light moments with Alex Hopper and the Nagato and their reference to the Art of War. I specially liked the chicken burrito scene when Alex met Shane. My other favorite scene was when Alex and Nagato fought and when caught, they said he slipped and I slipped and their heads just kept banging. So funny! Ordy also looked a lot like Matt Damon, but way funnier, and there was Rihanna also. She was so tiny yet she reminded me of a tough Michelle Rodriguez. All in all, the movie was fun and action packed. I was with great friends who enjoyed themselves because they liked the movie and we had fun. I gave this movie a 4 out of 5.

Special thanks to my friend Blanda and her husband Bobot and to Solar Entertainment, JACK TV, United International Pictures and the sponsors Oishi and Jamaican Patties for the free food samples!

Who's Getting a Kindle?

Me! Me! Me! I am getting a Kindle and its coming in two weeks! I am so excited, and I just can't hide it! Wohooooo!
