WANNA CHANGE COZ OF JUANA CHANGE

Saw Juana C. The Movie on its last showing date (giving way to the new Superman movie…which was sad) last night.

It was an interesting movie which tackled many socio-political aspects of everday Filipino life. I was disappointed though.

Disappointed that not a lot of Pinoys were able to watch it. (I guess most would rather watch foreign films, and it only ran for a week in the cinemas)

It’s pretty interesting how it showed the raw and ugly side of political corruption in the country in a funny parody. But while I was watching it I can’t laugh at scenes that were supposed to be funny. I couldn’t laugh because at the back of my mind there’s a voice telling me “Crap, this is how it really is…”

It is difficult to condense so many ideas in a short movie, but Juana C was able to do it. It wasn’t flawless, but the entirety of the message was there. I specially liked the Super Supreme Connections Manager. She was a natural for that role. Sophisticated bitch. Loved her to bits.

Kudos to Juana Change (Mae Paner) and Director Jade Castro for a great job on this movie. A great way to push for social awareness. Now if there’s one superhero flick you should have watched this year, it was this one.

With music, it's possible to rewind time.X marks the spot...not really.

 

An ocean starts with a single drop.Just a random doodle on a random day...

Probably the worst photo for the whole month...talk about uninspired.Tiles from the kitchen, reminds me of Game of Thrones' Sunspear...

 

Too fast too soon can be too bad.Time, please hold still.

 

Bum badum bum bum badum bum super bass. It's ok to go against the flow sometimes.

Finding a reason to smile is easier said than done.Isn't it wonderful how with every shower we feel renewed?

 

My labrador, Greta. If she's not a friend, I don't know who is.The things we grasp either hurt us or help us. Or both.

 

The inspiration our accomplishments bring are all fleeting.A robot who yearns for a heart. Now that's unusual.

 

Sometimes I wish we can park in life. Or go in reverse. Or make things faster.I miss the old me.

 

In a tropical country, a fan is always a welcome sight.Sometimes we have to look sideways to see a fuller picture.
