Inception = Awesome

I just want you to know that this is a pretty old draft, but I decided to post it anyway. I was not able to post it because I’m having trouble with my internet connection. So here it is.. Tobi and I watched Inception last July 18. It was amazing. It's one of the best movies of 2010. The story revolves around Leonardo DiCaprio's character named Cobb. Basically, he and his team makes a living by stealing ideas from people's minds. It's kinda hard to explain because I barely understood it. Of course I'm kidding. But it really is complicated so you gotta see it for yourself.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of my many crushes, is awesome in this movie. He plays Arthur, the Point Man, who is actually my favorite character. I’m just not sure if I like the character or the actor, or maybe both?.. The photo above is from my favorite scene of him when he was fighting the bad guys in a place where there is no gravity. And I’m not gonna tell you about it.

Ellen Page’s performance, as always, is great. Tom Hardy is funny. Marion Cotillard is hot. Ken Watanabe is brilliant. Cillian Murphy is hot too. I’m too lazy to make a full review. lol. Just watch it!

Sibling Rivalry… a good way. FIFA World Cup and Wimbledon just ended and we are caught in some kind of a sports bug. For the record, I’m not sporty so this is really unusual for me. I watched almost every match in Wimbledon and some in FIFA. And I’m not going to deny that one of the main reasons I watched them is the hot men. Haha!.. It felt so great when my bets won. Needless to say, I like Rafa Nadal and La Furia Roja. They’re so awesome, and did I mention hot? My favorite in the Spanish team is Gerard Pique. He’s a good defender and he’s got the most beautiful blue eyes.

Okay. I kinda went off topic there. It’s so typical of me. Let me get back to the topic. As I was saying, my sisters and I have been in a sporty mood recently. So we’ve been playing badminton these past few days, a sport which I find easy to play but I actually suck at it. As I said, I’m not a sporty gal. I prefer nonphysical activities like reading, taking photos of stuff, surfing the net and whatnot. Let me show you some photos of our “small badminton tournament” which is just outside our house.

I’m not gonna post my very unflattering photos this time. I wouldn’t want you to see my sweaty face. lol.. As much as I hate to admit it, I really enjoyed playing badminton. I think we’ll be playing it for a while.

How about you? Do you like sports?

eBook Reader Wanted

You may not know this, but I love reading so much. It’s one of my favorite past times. And I’ve been wanting to buy an eBook reader for quite some time now. The problem is, there are only a few stores selling them in the Philippines. One of them is Infomax. I visited their branch in Trinoma yesterday and I was not disappointed. It’s actually my first time to see an eBook reader with my own eyes. Yeah I know, I’m pathetic and I should be ashamed of myself. Well what was I supposed to do? It’s not like I have the moolah to travel abroad. Anyway, back to the topic. Infomax is selling Kindle, Nook, and BeBook. I checked their prices and I was flabbergasted. All of them are being sold for more than PhP22,000. I don’t know about you, but that’s too much for me. If I’m not mistaken, Barnes and Noble is currently selling Nook for only $149. As of today, 1 US Dollar is equivalent to 47 Philippine Pesos. I’ll let you do the math.

I love reading so much. In fact, I have more than 600 eBooks in my hard drive today. And I’m using iBooks to read them. Reading from my iPod is fun, but it gets tiring after a while because of the backlight. And aside from that, the battery drains so fast when reading. Let’s face it, the iPod is not really built for this. Before you get the wrong idea, I want you to know that I still prefer reading an actual book. I’m really just a sucker for technology. And besides, it can’t hurt that an eBook reader can hold hundreds of books, can it? How about you? Do you have an eBook reader? If your answer is no, are you planning to get one?.. I actually got my eye on this online store. If you click the link, you’ll see that they’re selling the Sony Pocket Reader for PhP 11,000. I think the price is reasonable enough. I’m thinking of buying one from them. For now, I gotta save up. I’ll just leave you a photo of Sony Pocket Reader.
