Heneral Luna

heneral luna facebook page

We watch the historical epic film Heneral Luna last night and I would certainly love to watch it for a few more times. Thanks to the writers, actors and all those behind the movie for their brilliance, courage and motivation to interpret an important piece of the Philippine history. Aside from learning about the life of General Luna as a person, lover, and patriot, there were a lot of scenes and dialogs that are relatable to the present day situations.

I love the flashback scene where Luna was talking with her mother. She made him remember his childhood in their old house in Binondo especially that scene in the dining area with cherry veneer wood furnitures where the family is about to eat dinner. It shows the warm moments with his family as a young boy.

After Heneral Luna’s success, I think the movie producer will do another historical film via Heneral Gregorio Del Pillar biopic. We’ll surely watch this one.

The photog, the pilot and I

Traveling was one of the most memorable parts of my job that I cherish until now. I would always travel with a photographer and a pilot (our term for the company driver). We work as a team. I was assigned a different photographer in every assignment. But somehow I develop friendship with each of them because they don’t only care for their output, but they also show concern especially when we were assigned to go to a not-so safe place for a woman like me.

My favorite photographer in People’s Tonight.

Our driver partner was also an efficient worker. He drives carefully no matter how far or how long the travel would take us to our place of destination. None of us (the photographer and me) entertain the thought of needing the assistance of a Texas truck accident lawyer because we felt so at ease with our pilot’s driving ability whatever the weather is. I really miss working with my team.

Well-deserved treat

Our nephew G, a nurse in a government hospital in Dubai, is earning enough to support his parents and younger siblings. I heard from relatives that G was able to help his father pay their accumulated debt through his monthly remittance. My BIL is lucky to have G as their son.

Since G is earning his own money now, he can also buy stuff for himself. I read from his Facebook status that he is looking for a violin and hardly decide which brand to choose so he is asking his FB friends to help him select. violin cost may not be a problem since he is earning enough to buy one. By this time, I’m sure he already bought a violin.

G is doing a good job in Dubai, I hope that his employer will renew his contract.
