I had the chance to watch some of the Oscar-nominated films mentioned above. And I could say that they were good, at least to my own standard. Well, I don't claim to be a film critic, but I believe that everyone who spend his money to watch a movie has every right to provide his view of how the film goes. Here's my take on the following films:

Life of Pi


Overall, Life of Pi is a good film. The flow of story plain without much surprise but it's not confusing either. It's just right to complement the entire film. The story is not similar to what I have watched before. With that, Life of Pi brings something new to my plate.

Here's a summary of what I like and not in Life of Pi.

What I like:
- the story is unique
- the special effects are great

What I don't like:
- it does not have the "moving" effect. It didn't leave me thinking about it.
- the story, though unique, is not appealing to me



Les Miserables


Les Miserables is a great film for everyone who thinks about life. It shows the realities of life such as: there are things that, no matter how simple they were, cannot be achieved in this world.
Also, the way the lead actors did their roles were amazing also. During the course of the movie, I almost forgot that Fantine is Anne Hathaway and Jean is Hugh Jackman.

Here's a summary of what I like and not in Les Miserables.

What I like:
- the story was epic
- Anne's portrayal of Fantine is fantastic
- The films cinematography

What I don't like:
- Les Miserables as a musical
- Russel Crowe singing


Lincoln


At the start of the movie, I thought that it would be boring. But I was wrong. It was a thrilling movie even without action-packed scenes. Also, Lincoln has its own unique flavor of humor. And the fact that the story of the film actually happened (although it may not be so accurate) triggers my interest.

So, here are the things that I like and not about the Lincoln:

What I like:
- Abraham Lincoln's story has always been interesting to me
- the actor that portrayed Abraham Lincoln - Daniel Day- Lewis - did a great job
- the thrill
- the moral lessons especially about equality of humans
- the film made me reflect about my personal stand about racial discrimination

What I don't like:
- I don't understand all the conversations, especially some of the humorous parts

I plan to watch other Oscar-nominated films such as Brave, Argo, Django Unchained, and Skyfall.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
