TCP: Inkheart




I'm back for Tuesday Couch Potatoes! Before I will feature my choice of movie for this week's theme, let me say something about Novel-based stories... (I didn't mean to spoil anything, no pun intended :)
 Sometimes, novel-inspired movies doesn't convey every detail that we have read from the book.. Well, of course, considering the scene that only a pen can mightily do, it's actually understandable. Most of the movies that I were able to watch left me hanging, not because the movie wasn't good enough but the story is a little bit different...Well, CREATIVITY comes in. Let's consider the "choreography" thing....
Anyway, I've seen a lot of novel-inspired movies, I have there The Notebook (which I already featured on the previous edition), Lord of the Rings (wasn't able to follow completely), Twilight Saga (my students has a lot of comments about this-they love the novel more than the movie), Harry Potter (wasn't able to complete this as well) and a whole lot more!
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (Hardcover)But, this week, I'm gonna feature ♥INKHEART ♥ with Brendan Fraser on the lead role... I wasn't able to watch this movie yet but I have a book written by Cornelia Funke (soft bound,quite thick)... this is more on more on fantasy adventure movie. But mind you, it's a very interesting story, somehow scared me a bit... I just do hope, the movie speaks well for the novel. Here's the synopsis:
Inkheart (+ BD-Live) [Blu-ray]Author Cornelia Funke's best-selling children's novel comes to vivid life on the big screen with this family-friendly tale about a bookbinder whose storytelling skills possess the curious power to transport the characters he speaks about into the real world. When a nefarious villain from a bedtime story that the father is currently reading to his daughter emerges to kidnap the stunned storyteller, it's up to the young girl and her adventurous friends -- both real and imaginary -- to bring dad back home and close the book on the dreaded fiend once and for all.
My merely watching its trailer, I guess this is promising....


See for yourself and explore your imagination.... Consider this on your list!
God bless....
Parental Guidance is highly encouraged ☺

MYM: Dare to be empowered...

MellowYellowMondayBadge

It's been awhile that I haven't posted anything for my Yellow Mellow Monday entry... And so, for this week, I opt to have this pic (I painted this one during our Family Camp '09). The  theme of our last year's family camp was more on empowerment thus the word "kagahum" was conceptualized for the deco ...

Dear (Pastor) John...

People come and go into our lives... Other chose to stay but there are some who will really stick closer to us. Their life becomes our inspiration. We can rarely find this kind of persons...
I am grateful to God that in my journey as an individual, He lead me to His people who may not really be that perfect but their existence made a difference in my life... I may sometimes felt alone  and empty  on the course of my journey, but God gave me people who filled it up and whom I can consider as my extended family... You are among them Pastor John...
The day I had my first Sunday service, I cannot forget that very warm smile welcoming me wholeheartedly... that was you, and right then I can feel like I really belong. I do admire you as a very loving  father to IJ and Dale as well as a romantic husband to Ate Grace... What an ideal couple I have in you!

I always remember most, if not all, of your nuggets of wisdom, your prank jokes, your loving advices, your words of discipline, your words of encouragement...

Ate Grace said we shared a lot in common when it comes to art, but for me, you are far better than me (considering the AGE...oops.... and the experience)... it runs in the blood, Bro? Seriously, how blessed I am to have known you Pas: my adviser, counselor, a real brother, a minister. Indeed, I can see a "real" person in you.

Thank you so much for everything, I may tend to forget uttering this words right into your face, but God knows that I really do.

May God continually bless you.

Happy Birthday!

Thank you Lord for using me!

Living a healthy lifestyle requires discipline. Most people right now became so health conscious. And why not? sickness of different kinds nowadays is causing paranoia to most of us. One dreadful example is the CANCER.  What we often seen on TV or witnessed among some of our acquaintances leads us to a conclusion that  CANCER diseases seems kind of normal occurrence in our generation. A couple of decades ago, we seldom hear that kind of problem happening to an individuals.   Indeed, this kind of diseases which can be shown up in many forms is causing an alarm to all ages right now. It pays to read  Health and Fitness Articles which will give us ideas on how to prevent in having this kind of problem. CANCER can cause many complications to our health especially if it is already on higher stages. However, CANCER is just a word and it is curable, not with chemo therapy but with Alternative Medicine! I have a friend whom I admired the most but was not spared by this kind of illness, but by the grace of God, recovery is on the way with the aid of Alternative medicine!
We should not wait for this kind of illness to break us apart, prevention is what we have to do. By reading Health and Fitness Articles we can start to live a healthy lifestyle by religiously following what is right  and disciplining ourselves from the possible causes of illnesses.
Act now, read and have a healthy lifestyle!

WFW: Trusting God Again and Again....

God is too wise to be mistaken....
God is too good to be unkind...
When we can't trace His hand...
Let us trust His heart.


Yes indeed! Why should I worry about my future... I should remain still, knowing that God is there.
Thank you, Lord.

Dare to Bet?

How do we defined sport bets?. Sports betting is the process of predicting the result of a game, event or match by wagering on the outcome of the contest.This is very much common in the United States. I remember my US citizen brother in law one time who can't get enough with his favorite  football game that when he arrived here in the Philippines, he spend most of the time on the internet watching the games. When I asked my sister, she explained to me that her husband were just monitoring the outcome of the game because he is placing his bet on his favorite team! How was it done is the question that triggers my mind because I do not have any knowledge about betting on game via online. I haven't really heard much of it here in the Philippines. I learned that there are sport bet websites, or sport books, as they called it, wherein one can place his bets for his choice of game.In sportsbettingspot.com, they have there the list of the Top Ten Best Sports Books with corresponding reviews for guidance. They also have tips and tricks about football betting, baseball betting, basketball betting, hockey betting, soccer betting, boxing betting and more.
Here's a screenshot of their Top Ten Sports Books:
If you are a novice about sportsbetting like me, visit their website now and place your bet out from the comfort of your home.

TCP: Notting Hill



I am back at TCP for this week's episode about Julia Robert's movies... I really don't find her too attractive but wow she got a very wonderful acting skills that made her to the top! And for this week, I am going to feature her Notting Hill movie with Hugh Grant! In this movie, they proved that Love can happen to anyone, anytime. No barriers, no discrimination or whatsoever....
Here's a review from one of the viewer...  (for sure most of us were able to watch this 1999 Blockbuster movie) just a sort of reminiscing' the story...
Every man's dream comes true for William Thacker, an unsuccessful Notting Hill bookstore owner, when Anna Scott, the world's most beautiful woman and best-liked actress, enters his shop. A little later, he still can't believe it himself, William runs into her again - this time spilling orange juice over her. Anna accepts his offer to change in his nearby apartment, and thanks him with a kiss, which seems to surprise her even more than him. Eventually, Anna and William get to know each other better over the months, but being together with the world's most wanted woman is not easy - neither around your closest friends, nor in front of the all-devouring press.
AND THE TRAILER:

 If you missed this movie then get it now, right here! For sure you do missed her.

Me. myself & I

Photobucket

God Brought Me Here for a Reason! So true... i do firmly believe that God allow me to exist on Earth for a very significant purpose! In fact, I do believe as well that God brought my BC Blogger family for a very distinct reason... Nothing is arbitrary, nothing is caused by accident! Wow...and that inspired me to have my blog entitled that way.

Hello my co- BC Bloggers, this is me... Jackie or let's make it unique by reading backward, I am EIKCAJ! I am 100% human who is sensitive in so many ways..(oops!) I mean, emotionally, i am overly sensitive (trying to overcome it though...)I am currently working as a staff in the office of the Bids and Awards Committee Secretariat in our school (Mindanao University of Science and Technology-main campus) and at the same time teaching Basic CAD subject (too preoccupied, right?).

I view life as unpredictable... God has His own way in dealing each one of us. I cannot define my life or view  it as really perfect, but i am coping up amidst my shortcomings...

I love to do so many things but sometimes can't find time to do all of it....
I love to write...draw... sing... listen to music... watch sunset.... and just be myself...

I am partly introvert and partly extrovert (depending upon the situation/circumstances...) Some people may misunderstood me but this is just the real me....

I love those people who will love me and I just ignore those who don't.

After all, I am not good in pleasing everyone (no one does)...

One thing is for sure... as long as God is with me, I don't really care if some will disagree with me...It's not about them, it's about Him... like what i said, i am not perfect, I am just an ordinary girl, whom God loved so much! :) I am not really hard to deal with...
