Vendo Machine

Kanina, sa pantry ng 9th floor sa aming opisina. may ate gurl na nakatitig sa vendo machine ng mga chichirya.

Friday na. Onti na lang ang laman ng vendo. Mga junk food na hindi gawa ng jack en jill pero mas mahal ng onti, dahil feeling ng mga vendo machine companies e ginto ang suweldo ng mga nasa call center.

Matagal na nakatitig si ate gurl. After ang ilang segundo pa ng pagkakatitig niya, ipinasok na niya ang kanyang sampumpisong barya.

Bago siya makapindot ng kanyang pipiliin, nagkaroon ako ng chance na matanong siya, “mahirap bang pumili”.

Hindi ko na siya tinignan sa mata. Sapat na sa akin ang makabitaw ng isang hugot sa isang araw. Napangiti ko naman siya. Solb na ako.

Pero hindi lang ngiti ang ibinalik niya sa akin, sinagot niya ang tanong ko na may kasamang ngiti sa labi, pero lungkot sa mga mata.

“Onti na nga lang ang pagpipilian mo, yung mga ayaw mo pa.”

Ganyan ang nangyayari sa atin na pinapatagal pa ang panahon bago umamin sa taong mahal natin. Nauubusan tayo ng chances. Baka antay tayo ng antay, hindi naman pala marerefill ang vendo machine.

Baka mag-resign na lang tayo sa trabaho, hindi pa rin marefill ang vendo machine.

At wag ka mag-antay ng Jack en Jill Chiz Curlz dyan. Hindi yan kasama sa vendo namin sa 9th floor.

Excited na ako! Every year na umaattend ako ng summer siren, nagkakaroon ako ng mga bagong kaibigan. Shout out ke Sofia F, kung nasan ka man ngayon, make sure na makapag-beach tayo this summer.

Looking Good Kahit Audience Ka Lang.

Isa sa mga objectives and goals ko kapag nanonood ako ng dlsu  game sa Araneta or sa MOA e para mahagip ng  camera. Yung mapakita sa tv kahit sandali lang. Para naman masabi ko na kahit sandali lang e sikat ako.

Dapat,  mas  gwapo ako at mas mukha akong mabango kesa ke Ryan Arana at Japeth Aguilar. Hindi man ako kasinggaling nila magbasketball, mas gwapo  naman ako dahil sa aking  grooming at stylish appearaance.

Kaya naman, dapat, tiwala ako sa barberya ko. Dapat sunod sa trend. Dapat experienced, marunong, at creative. Risky na rin kung minsan.

Kung Ok Ang Lahat, May Dapat Pa Ba Ayusin?

Na-experience ko na yung steady, yun bang everything is going alright. Planado ang buhay, may direksyon ang bawat galaw, walang problema, at paaulit-ulit ang bawat araw.

Masaya yung  ganitong sitwasyon. Sigurado na kasi ako sa mangyayari sa akin. Pag sinunod ko ang plano, makukuha ko ang goals ko. Sure yun.

Kaso, hindi ba nakakabagot? Boring? Wala nang thrill. Hindi na ako mahihirapan.

Hinahanap-hanap ng katawan ko ang adrenaline rush. Parang gusto ko mag-try ng new things. Gusto ko, iba naman ang gagawin ko.

When was the last thing you did something for the first time?

To break my cycle, ginulo ko ng onti ang buhay ko. Ito mga ginawa ko since yesterday:

  • Bumili ng bagong parts ng PC. My new rig’s name is CUPID, dahil binuo ko siya ng Valentines 2017.
  • Gumawa ako ng FB event na kalokohan lang. Good luck!
  • Bumili ako ng TV para sa bahay. Regalo ko  na yun ke mommy. Taun-taon na lang kasing bouquet of flowers ang regalo ko sa kanya e.

I am happy with these changes, kahit magastos. I know they are not very adventurous, pero kailangan mong ayusin ang maayos na di ba? Lalo pa’t nararamdaman mo na stagnant na.

Improve improve din guys pag may time.

TERRIFYING CINEMATIC SPA EXPERIENCE IN “A CURE FOR WELLNESS”

A superb storyteller and a master of pacing, director Gore Verbinski, along with an impressive cast that includes Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth and Jason Isaacs creates an unsettling, ominous atmosphere throughout “A Cure for Wellness”, immersing the audience in the world of the spa, where nothing is clear or straightforward.

When Lockhart (DeHaan) arrives at Volmer’s (Isaacs) sanitarium, he assumes that his mission will be simple: he will talk to Pembroke, his boss, and persuade him to come back to New York. But Pembroke doesn’t want to leave. Nobody leaves. As the plot unfolds, we experience Lockhart’s mounting anxiety. In danger of losing his sanity, whom can he trust? Lockhart agrees to undergo a course of treatment administered by the doctor and his team after his accident going back without Pembroke. Lockhart becomes friendly with Hannah (Goth) and together they set about uncovering the menacing secrets of the institute and its history. Far younger than the other patients, Hannah has spent her whole life at the Volmer Institute. Dr. Volmer takes care of her and she has minimal knowledge of the outside world.

“When we’re first introduced to Hannah, she comes across as this extremely naive and sheltered young woman,” says Goth about her character. “She’s never been encouraged or felt the need to question what it is that Volmer or the sanitarium represents. And I think that’s because she has this remarkable ability to see the good and the beauty in all things. On one level, it really is a father and daughter relationship between Hannah and Volmer, and there is a lot of deep love and respect there. She has come to love and depend on her jailer,” says Goth, elaborating on the complex relationship between Hannah and Volmer.

Dr. Volmer’s lifesaving ‘cure’ involves supposedly ‘healing water’ at the spa, which he utilizes for his highly unconventional approach to medicine. There are fascinating allusions to European mineral spas with their emphasis on cleansing, rejuvenation and revitalization. As the audience will soon discover, Dr. Volmer’s bizarre experimental therapies have a very different focus from the healing baths at the European spas. The audience is right there with Lockhart as he endures the treatments that will allegedly heal him of his condition.

What exactly are those treatments? “Without giving too much away, there are a lot of eels involved! There is a sensory deprivation chamber; there is some pretty intense dental work! I truly get tortured throughout the movie,” laughs DeHaan who had several sessions in an isolation tank. “First I was in the tank, and then I was in the dentist chair. I call it my week of torture. That’s a week I’ll never forget. It’s supposed to be scary and it was scary!”

According to Verbinski, it’s not just the patients who are experiencing Dr. Volmer’s cure. The film is so immersive that audience members almost feel as though they are enduring the treatment along with the protagonist. “What’s nice is that we’re perpetrating crimes upon the audience,” says Verbinski. “There’s a treatment that is happening to Lockhart and you are observing what is happening to him with the treatment, with the experiments at the sanitarium. But the question is: who is the patient? Is the patient Lockhart or is it the audience? That’s what fascinates me about this genre; we’re taking people into a darkened room and performing a psychological experiment on them. I’ve set out to analyze the moviegoer; I wanted to ‘diagnose’ the audience and then offer a cure. And we’re giving them a good story to keep them involved.”
