“Since I’ve met you and moved to Sydney, I haven’t listened to one ABBA song. That’s because now my life’s as good as an ABBA song. It’s as good as Dancing Queen.” 😭😭😭

And that joyous Waterloo number. ❤️❤️❤️

Lester will probably haunt my dreams for the next few weeks.

I hate how this movie triggered my paranoia and made me reach out for my inhaler several times while watching.

Julianne Moore reminded me yet again why I vowed to name my daughter after her. Truly phenomenal.

I really adore these Haynes-Moore collabs. Now I need to find a copy of my fave Far From Heaven.

MOVIE REVIEW: ALONG WITH THE GODS: THE TWO WORLDS (Kim Yong-hwa, 2017)

Grabe ngayon lang ako naiyak nang dahil sa rice cooker.

Such a fascinating take on the afterlife and reincarnation! Instead of San Pedro (and his manok) checking the guest list at the Pearly Gates, the souls face 7 trials before 7 gods in 49 days. Ganda ng concept (and the visuals, too).

Pinaiyak na naman ako nung guy sa My Sassy Girl. Tapos yung nanay pa niya eh yung isa sa mga lola na nilapa ng zombies sa Train to Busan kaya ang lakas ng hagulgol ko sana hindi ako ni-report ng mga kapitbahay.

Go watch!!
