hey!

Been a bit busy. Two weeks ago I had a two-day retreat which was awesome, then had a stomach virus that sidelined me for a couple days since all I did was live in the bathroom, then trying to get ready for an exam.

Key word is trying because I keep meaning to study but I never do. :( And it didn't help that Roland Garros is underway, so I spend most of my time in front of the TV and the laptop, because the local cable channel coverage seem to think the only good matches are in Chatrier (Lenglen has way better matches!).

And I've missed a ton of movies! I haven't seen the stuff I've meant to see -- Clash of the Titans, Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and now we've got Prince of Persia and I can't go see it because of the exam. Maybe next week. And speaking of which, where is that interview where Jake Gyllenhaal said he kind of based/was inspired by Rafael Nadal when it came to bulking up his body?

Exam later today. It's just an international English exam, but I need a really good/high score and I've always had problems with writing and the speaking part usually depends on who you're talking to (Filipinos usually grade low, for some reason).

Ooh, also -- does anyone have a recommendation for a good point-and-shoot camera? Nothing terribly expensive, and I don't need the DSLRs; just something that's easy to carry around in your bag.

Good luck with the exams!

What is Roland Garros?

Thank you! :)

It's a tennis tournament, one of the four Grand Slams. I think it's more popularly known as the French Open.

Okay, about the movies...

I heard Clash of the Titans sucked. My friends who watched it on iMax were very disappointed.

Iron Man 2 was awesome. I haven't watched it yet but I've heard a lot of good reviews. The only negative comment was that they prefer the black guy in the first movie.

Robin Hood...Well, it's a Russell Crowe movie so expect drama. Lol. One of my geek friends was like: "Okay, wtf, he's Robin Hood and he hardly used an arrow." There were some action scenes that made him go facepalm too. It's a spoiler so I wouldn't tell you but trust me, it's a big wtf scene.

I'll probably be watching Prince of Persia tomorrow. If I do, I'll tell you if it's worth watching. ;)
