Spider-Man Homecoming (PG) 2017 #onebeatforpao2.0 (NOT really a review)


Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine -- distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighborhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear.- WWW

With or without the fundraiser/fundraising activity, this movie is worth watching. Needless to say, there are lessons learned.  There is no dead air.  The movie is acted well by EVERYONE.  

If there's one complaint, it's about the chopsticks at the Thai Restaurant, but then again, Peter wasn't exactly sticking his chopsticks on rice all the time and maybe they were thinking the rules are not the same in a Thai restaurant.  

The scenes are pretty exciting.  The "special" effects look real.

You would love Ned, Michelle(yes, you would), Liz, Aunt May(who is just May here because they made her younger) and even The Vulture(yes, you would).

Oh, and Wonder Woman's jet is in this movie...j/k.  It's Tony Stark's.  :-p

We love the movie.  It's worth the wait.  It also taught us patience(the trailers in the cinema were shown 2 to 3 times each...oh, and there's just one after credits thing...two if you count____).

We were going to watch Spider-Man Homecoming anyway(we were psyched since the first trailer was shown), so when we found out adding a few more pesos per ticket is going to help a friend in need, then we gladly purchased those tickets.

X-linked dystonia-parkinsonism

As I always say, we're not as ultra rich as Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne(who claims his super power is being rich), so we could not help everyone in dire need(unfortunately, some steal from us making us shocked for days trying to make sense out of things), but those we could, we really go out of their way for them.

Paolo Isberto, besides being a brother-in-Christ whom I met when I was still young enough to be in the Young Adults Ministry(YAM's maximum age is 39 and you have to be single), is loved unconditionally by one of my little sisters in the Vicariate of San Antonio de Padua, Roselle De Leon(big sister of my goddaughter, Reena).  Most of the couples with the guy having this disease break up because of two reasons(or more): First, because the guy lets the girl go and second, because the girl couldn't take care of the guy because of the said illness.

Roselle, praise God, did not leave Paolo, instead, is doing everything while trusting in God and seeking the help of family, friends, neighbours and the whole network connected to them.

One Beat for Pao

Paolo Antonio E. Isberto or Pao as he is fondly called by people close to him, is a talented drummer, a son, a brother, a good friend, an artist and a financial advisor. Among all that, he is often remembered as a drummer who made each song as lively as it should. Once he hears a song, he can play it and can immediately follow the beat. Being a drummer - involves the correct timing and proper coordination of both hands and feet to get the beat right. He used to be part of Band JAO, the 90s matinee idol Jao Mapa’s Band. After his short stint in Show Business, he continued his passion for drums in serving the church as part of the Young Adults Ministry in 2003.

Years passed and he noticed that his hands and feet could no longer coordinate, “As if my foot had a mind of its own,” he recalls. It was later on accompanied by slowness of his movement and slurred speech. He had consulted several specialists until he was diagnosed of x-linked Dystonia Parkinsonism or known as “Lubag” in Filipino, last 2015. This is a rare disease which affects men who have a maternal ancestry in Panay Group of Islands. The disease is progressive and degenerative*. This explained the changes he was feeling especially in his movements. He was devastated when he learned about this. “Hindi naman ako mayaman pero bakit ako binigyan ng sakit na pangmayaman,” he said. After coming to terms with this, he accepted his fate even if it’s not easy. He said, “Hindi pa naman ako mamatay. I am sure that God has plans kaya Niya binigay sa akin.” He continues to serve in the community and is still active in his job as a financial consultant but on a limited capacity.

News came in several months ago, when his neurologist told him that there is a way to delay the progression of the disease and to manage the symptoms through Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure used to treat a variety of disabling neurological symptoms—most commonly the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), such as tremor, rigidity, stiffness, slowed movement, and walking problems.**

The good thing is that the procedure is readily available here in the Philippines; however the cost would be around PhP 2,000,000.00.

We are knocking and hoping for your generosity in helping him get his beat back. He drummed his way into the hearts of his family and friends and we are passing the beat to you hoping that you could support him in his journey.

If you want to anonymously help Pao, you may send money here(just inform the teller it's an anonymous donation or they would think it's a glitch) or you may inform the bank it's a donation(I won't get a single centavo from this)or a blessing for him:
