Turn the lights on!

So, today marks 5Y2M and we had a perfect excuse to finally watch Thor: The Dark World ! We booked our seats online but I just realized upon claiming the tickets that there was no need to reserve them. It was senior citizen day and we were queueing next to excited elderlies who were either watching Thor with us, or a Filipino horror movie. I just felt bad for the unnecessary Php 40 admin fees we paid.

Before the movie played, I was not too crazy over the new Captain America trailer. It was too ‘boys night out’ and not enough fantasy for my liking. As for the movie itself, I was so happy that Kat Dennings got too have more screentime than the first installment. I have always loved her in Two Broke Girls and I also recently watched the ‘Hot Child in the City‘ episode of SATC, where she was this filthy-mouthed adoloscent schooling Samantha. I have always loved Natalie Portman but Kat Dennings stole the show with her comedic timing and sarcasm. There was also the usual gratuitous scene of Thor for the girls and the girls-at-heart, and lots of smashing of extraterrestials. Anyway, it was an awesome movie, thanks in large part to the right humorous parts inserted here and there. I knew I would be laughing while watching this movie because the first movie pretty much made me expect it. I can’t comment on the length because it was almost the same as the other MARVEL movies, but several of the people who watched with us clearly dozed off. Bless them.

Christmas officially started in our house!

It has been weeks already since we brought out our Christmas tree, but we only had the time this weekend to finally put ornaments on it (and some more)! My nephew and niece were, of course, very eager to help. After all, Christmas is more fun when you have kids screaming and running around the house.

However, I had been sneezing for hours already because the ornaments and decorations were kept in their boxes for months and all the dust and what-nots irritated my nose. Not to mention, I had been helping Mama to hang all of the lights and those little, paratrooper Santas around the house. By the end of the day, I was already sweaty and grimy that I had scrubbed my body hard to remove the dirt when I took a bath.
