Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2012)

Drama. Oskar (Thomas Horn) is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can't be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father's closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him. -- (C) Warner Bros.

I definitely wanna watch this movie... :) 


The Notebook quotes

So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.

You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.

I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it

I don't know that love changes. People change. Circumstances change

My daddy said, that the first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you try, that feeling just never goes away.

You are, and always have been, my dream

Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Apple’s newest product, the iPhone 4S, introduces several new features and a whole lot of upgrades from the iPhone 4. Even though the new model looks almost exactly the same as the previous one, the iPhone 4S features some great performance improvements that make it the most advanced smartphone on the market.
First of all, the iPhone 4S boasts Apple’s newest, super-fast dual-core processor and GPU. So what does that mean for you? Apple claims this new A5 processor (the same one used in the brand new iPad 2) will make the iPhone 4S twice as fast as the iPhone 4, and graphic performance up to seven times as fast. The A5 chip makes the new iPhone 4S ideal for games and other graphics-intensive apps. Even web-browsing and multi-tasking will reach new levels with this kind of speed and power.
And even with all that processing power, the iPhone 4S will offer a much longer battery life – up to 8 hours of talking on a 3G network, 9hours of watching videos or 40 hours of listening to music. Apple also claims the smartphone delivers a standby time of up to 200 hours.
The iPhone 4S also features a camera upgrade that will leave you (and your friends) asking “That picture was taken with a phone?” While the iPhone 4 had a very nice 5 megapixel camera, the iPhone 4S brings smartphone photography to new heights with an 8 megapixel, f/2.4 aperture camera with built-in autofocus, LED flash and geotagging capability. Even in low light, the new camera delivers stunning photographs, and the color accuracy and white balance are spot on. You can even edit your photos right on your iPhone 4S with included apps and film HD video at 1080p.The brand new mobile operating system, iOS 5, offers an entire package of more than 200 new features and upgrades to your iPhone 4S. Some favorites include a streamlined notification center, convenient messaging between all your Apple devices (and your friends Apple devices, too!), as well as iCloud and AirPlay integration, subscription management and much more.
The iPhone 4S comes with a whole suite of built-in apps, including the advanced voice control feature known as Siri. With an innovative, intuitive, almost sentient design, Siri allows you to speak to your smartphone as if you were speaking to your own personal assistant. Whether you’re looking for the nearest parking garage or asking Siri to look up your mother-in-law’s phone number, this intelligent app listens to what you say and then chooses the right app to complete your request.The new Apple iPhone 4S is also giving Mac users some extra options that have never been available before. AT&T and Verizon provide different iPhone services for a long time, but right now Sprint also offers amazing plans.  The iPhone 4S will also be available in a 64GB model for the first time ever.For more information about the iPhone 4S, visit your local Apple retail store or your local service provider.

Can't wait for Iphone5 though..

 Having a place to go - is a home.  Having someone to love - is a family.  Having both - is a blessing.  ~Donna Hedges

Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.  ~Anthony Brandt
Add cap
In my 27 years of existence, I've been through a lot. To start off, my mom died when I was 9 years old, then our house got burnt down, I was left with my dad and two younger siblings at that time, age 6 & 3. At a young age, I never felt so confused & betrayed. Why?  just plain and simple I lose someone I loved at a young age, starting all over again.. it's just too much for me. I can still recall whenever there's special occasion's or like fiesta's(this is usual in provinces) and I am being asked to join santacruzan,  i would feel like no one is there for me, i have one of my aunt to help me but having a family of her own that she need to attend to, makes it very hard for her to. At that time, I was lucky that even if my dad doesn't work(due to his legs got 2nd & 3rd degree burn's) I got my grandfather to help us, me and my siblings finish our studies, not that easy though, I had this experience wherein I don't have allowance to go to school and that sometime's my dad need to lend money from our neighbors, sometimes I feel like even my own relatives don't care for us. But despite all of it, I was able to graduate college , May 2004. First thing that came into my mind is to work, I got a job through my aunt but kept it for only 6 mos due to fact it's not really what I like to do. Then I joined the call center business , wasn't that lucky the first few tries, but eventually got my 1st call center experience or technically 2nd ,the 1st one I only stayed for one week, but with the second one, I manage to keep it for 2 1/2 years. This is when I had my family taken for granted, I didn't keep in touch for almost 5 years. I guess,. I am broken, lost and my brother got into a fight and didn't talk for more than 2 years(I think) I want to show them that I can make it despite of everything I've been through, but I didn't do it the right way. .Got a job in one of the top financial services firm in the U.S in 2008 which I still worked with then I got in touch with my family mid 2009.. it was like a mini reunion.. just the words how are you?is what I can hear from them, I didn't hear any other words "where the hell have you been??"  nothing.. just like what my brother said to me, It's just the four of us left, our family is not perfect, whatever happens, we should learn to accept each other, love each other, beside, mom will not be happy seeing us four separated , one thing is I gained a lot of weight and my brother only told me, as long as you are happy, that is ok,, Isn't that sweet? hehe.. I was like a balikbayan, only difference is I don't have "pasalubong" the first time me and my family see each other after almost 5 years, one day is not enough for our exchange of stories, make up for the time that had passed. But one lesson I've learned is no matter what, where or who you are with , never ever take your family for granted, because at times that no one else is there for you, your family will and always be there for you. Every achievement is not worth it without your family.  I love you papa, and to my siblings- marc and andrei.. and to my mama(wherever you are..)
