For some obvious reasons, there is still no much trace that Christmas is approaching here. I miss the overflowing fancy decors in Philippine malls, the seemingly competing themed decors in and out of the buildings in Makati, and a lot more. I’ve been frequenting Ikea lately because it is the best place to run in if you want temporary holiday shivers. The sight of the colorful pillowcases, bedsheets, standard pine trees and other stuff may comfort you for a while.
Oh, great. After the long wait and speculation, my favorite cinema in UAE announced that Twilight would be shown on 4th of December. It would be released in the US this friday and in the Philippines on the 26th. I.am.jealous. Meaning I need more patienceeeee (!) in the coming days. I promise myself not to peek on any reviews and other form of spoilers until I see this for myself. Huhuhu. What a test of EQ. Sige na nga, okay lang. At least, it’s still a better playdate. Sourgraping. Haha.
If you’re following my posts, you probably have an idea how I transformed from a non-fictional reader to a teenage series addict. I’ve managed to have kept a reasonable period to have this blog free from Twilight talk. But now, I really, really want to talk about it again. What’s the trigger?
It has been reported that President Obama is reading Twilight with his daughter.
President-Elect Barack Obama truly has a full plate. Revitilize a sinking economy. Energize a nation. Rehabilitate America’s fragile standing in the world. Oh, and get through four “Twilight” books with his youngest daughter.
Yes, according to the latest issue of US Weekly, Stephenie Meyer has a couple fans who will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in a couple months. The magazine reports that the President-Elect and his ten-year-old daughter Malia often bond over addictive book series, “They read all the Harry Potter books together and have moved on to the Twilight series.”
If that’s true, I like him for reading the book. And again, only if that’s true, I don’t like him for allowing his youngest daughter to read Twilight. Too young to read it.
No updates from me lately not just because I became expectedly busy, but primarily I was not feeling well. It rained last Sunday morning. Yes, real rain showers in Abu Dhabi (Being rain deprived, they hold an artificial rain show in Marina Mall at 4:30 P.M. everyday). As the raindrops abruptly came at 7:30 AM, instead of running to the hallway, I opted to feel the tiny raindrops until these turned onto showers. I even took a video and recorded the sound of the thunder. I didn’t pay much attention to these when I was still in the Philippines. But because it’s a once in a blue moon event here, consider yourself lucky to see and feel the drops.
