Things I learned while watching Pinoy drama series

1. Eyebrows can make or break your look.
2. When you’re the kontrabida, kelangan marunong kang mandilat. Gone are the days of “pataasan ng kilay.”
3. Like in the movies, the title must be mentioned by the main character in his/her dialogue.
4. When the plot goes boring, they tweak the storyline to something mystical. Kesehodang patapos na yung series.
5. Lahat ng kontrabida may kakayahang kumitil ng buhay ng walang konsensya.
6. Pag hindi namamatay ang kontrabida, nababaliw lang siya sa huli.
7. Directors insert nonsense footages or shoot unnecessary scenes just to prolong the series.
8. You can reserve a flight to your honeymoon while wearing your wedding attire — in the airport, no less — and no one would look at you funny.

There are probably a lot more, but I guess I still need to watch more local TV.

Wow, am I bored or what?


Hmm, seems Zee will actually come out to this world on the expected due date. I’m getting nervous and excited at the same time.

I’m also switching hospitals from Medical City to Medical Center Manila. The latter is more cost-effective (not cheap ha, just costs significantly less) and my OB is more comfortable with the staff there. In her own words, “mas gusto ko doon, mas friendly ang mga tao.” Or so she claims. Plus that was the hospital where my sis, my bro, and I were born. Mom says it’s a good hospital, too.

Scheduled for another check-up this Wednesday. Let’s see if I get labor pains while watching Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen on its first day of showing.

    Wah! Masyado pang bata si Zee for Transformers!!! Then again, she might grow up to be as hot as Megan Fox, hehehehe. I’m excited na, hahahaha (for Zee’s arrival ha? Hindi yung Transformers).

    • moonchild117 June 25, 2009 at 1:40 pm

      for some reason, di ko gustong magsalita si megan fox. though i agree na hot siya (at nagpa-botox ata ng lips).

      OB says baka umabot pa ng july si Zee. hays, she’s enjoying her time inside my tummy. LOL! will update you guys agad paglabas niya.

      musta dyan? shet, feeling ko di na ako marunong magsulat… 😛
