Mary Kubica's THE GOOD GIRL (A book sort of review, but not really)

Image
Definitely a page turner.  No hype at all!
Good thing I know it's not good to envy because for a newbie, Mary Kubica was able to conjure one of the best books of its genre of all time. 
The USELESS info that you may skip if you wish:

My first friend when we transferred here, the one responsible for introducing me to all my first playmates(her bus mates), is visiting her family(she'll fly back to the States tomorrow).   She now resides in Fresno, California, and has a family of her own(I was a witness/ninang for their civil wedding and a commentator/singer during her Church wedding...I am also a godmother to her twins).  Ever since we were little we were bookworms.  Honestly, we were both in single digit age(we're just months apart)when we first read all those romance books(they weren't trashy books---just too much for our young minds, but Lizelle was very bright---apart from the elders of my family and my teachers, some of the first big words I learned were from her---so…

What did I feel about the ending of MEANT TO BE? (GMA 7)---plus some thoughts about Encatadia and DTBY

Barbie and Her "Kens" (A Dollywood Title)
#TeamYuan #KenBie

My bubble was burst when the last scene after the credits was shown.  JEYA (Jai, Ethan, Yuan and Andoy) just woke up from a heavy night and they were wondering what happened then in big bold letters this was shown on the TV screen:  Ano nga ba? SOON!

Ngarks.

I was already very happy that BARBIE (Forteza as Billie Bendiola) and KEN (Chan as Yuan Lee or Lee Yuan) ended up together.  I even shouted it via FB(viewed by Friends of Friends) then as I was enjoying the after credits scenes, the very last one was that messy pool scene.

Everything was just a dream!

Come on!

I know it's fiction, but to play with our emotions like that?  That such BS. If I only knew that they'd do that, I would've finished Father Rio's send off party.  :-p  It's different when people wake up from a nightmare, but my goolai.  Why did they have to make it a dream?  If they want Barbie(at least her character) to end up with all four…

The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

Release date: 21 June 2017 (Philippines) Director: Michael Bay Based on: Transformers; by Hasbro Budget: 260 million USD Music composed by: Steve Jablonsky Bonifacio High Street Central Square Cinemas
This long-awaited movie is worth it.  Yes, it's still very long even if Michael Bay shortened it(a little more than 2 1/2 hours), but the scenes were pretty exciting, so I didn't notice the time. For a non-expert or ordinary viewer I could say I love the special effects.
As for the story?  It needs work.  Earth=Unicorn...I mean, Unicron.  :-p  For a mi…

STRONG PARENTAL GUIDANCE should have been the rating of this movie, but they did not want to scare the parents away because this indeed a family bound by love film, so it's simply PG here in the Republic of the Philippines(In the Philippines, PG is for 13 and under---unlike elsewhere, PG is 7 and under, so they have to specify PG-13---here, if it's violent or whatever else, they make it R-13---meaning, even with parents, 13 and under are banned from entering).

It's always a joy to watch Gru, the mini…
