I was able to watch a movie last Wednesday. This movie is one of the novels written and put into widescreen. I haven't finished reading the book but I was tempted to watch it's movie. Well, I was planning to finish first the book and then watch the movie, LOL!

If you will ask me I like reading the book than watching it because I was watching the movie seriously and then suddenly.... It went to the climax of the movie and ended. I thought the movie just ran for an hour. But overall the movie is great and fun especially for the kids and kids at heart *wink

The movie is not a spooky one not like what it's poster is suggesting. The movie is about a young girl's father has the power to bring characters from books to life by reading those books aloud. When a power-hungry villain from a rare children's fable kidnaps the man, his daughter bands with a group of friends both real and imagined to set things right. The cast includes the actor from the Mummy series Brendan Frase, Paul Bettany, Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren. It is fantasy action adventure all rolled into one.

Here is the trailer of the movie.

I'll still finish reading the book and then get to read the other two books for this is a trilogy.

What if it was you who won the Super Lotto?

I was at work last night and doing my nightly routine and just doing my own business when suddenly one of my co-worker just arrived and about to start his shift and screamed "two people won the lottery!!".

Everyone has it's own say on that news. Some said "Who are those two lucky people?", others said "I wonder what are the lucky numbers?", and the others said "Well, I did not bet on the lottery tonight hehehe". There was a commotion at the work place. As for me, I too was wondering who are those people and I just hope they deserve to win.

I don't usually blog or talk about who won on the lottery but this one is the biggest winning jackpot prize that I heard since lottery begun here in the Philippines. Ahmm, yes I do think so that this is the biggest jackpot prize I heard you can correct me if I'm wrong.

The Superlotto 6/49 jackpot prize is a whooping 347,836,903.20 Php! Each of the winners will get a lump sum of 173, 918, 451.60 Php. That is still a lot of money and they are instant multi millionaire. The draw of the lottery was held last night Sunday February 22, 2009 at 9pm via Channel 4. The winning lottery numbers are 06-34-20-26-12-33 as posted at the website of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) at

As I write this blog, nobody still can tell who are the lucky winners of the jackpot prize or where are they from. I bet this whole day news will be popping out as to who won the prize. I just hope that they will use their winnings wisely not like the one who won 2 Million pesos a couple of years ago that just spent the money to anywhere and now they are penniless again. I just hope those who won this jackpot prize last night will wisely spend the money. Well, if you ask me, what if I won, I don't know what to do with the winnings but it will definitely help my family.

How about you, what would you do if you are the one who won that whooping jackpot prize of 347 Million pesos?

As I ended my shift last night and went out of the building, I talked to one of our service drivers. I told him that somebody won the lottery last night and then he said "do you think they would give out that large amount of money? It could be that someone in PCSO just made this up and told us that there are two people who won well in fact no one really won so they can use the money to themselves". Hmmm.. that made me think. What if it is true? I just hope that this won't happen.

Nasopharyngeal Allergy

Here I go again... Sick again... Geezzz! I'm perfectly in good health, however, above my throat is not doing very well, I think it's my Nasal area. First week of February I had a flu and Pharyngitis. Pharyngitis is an inflammation of the throat or pharynx. In most cases it is painful, and thus is often referred to as a sore throat. Inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis) and/or layrnx (laryngitis) may occur simultaneously, which can make eating difficult or painful. But I still managed to eat after taking 3 days of antibiotics to a week. So I was well again and ready to do what I planned doing for the first week of February but never did due to I got sick. Then after a week of finishing my antibiotics, here it is again. I can eat but I feel that there is a lump near the left part of my throat and feeling a bit rough. It's hard for me to swallow at times and sometimes I lose my voice.

Yesterday I went to my doctor and have my throat checked. My tonsils are normal and no inflammation. As I tell my doctor what I feel, she finally told me that I have an allergy and this allergy is what they call Nasopharyngeal Allergy. Never heard of it and never had one before. I had nasal allergies and tonsilitis before but nothing like this one. I was trying to search the internet what it is all about but it only gives me Pharyngitis and Nasopharynx. The nasopharynx (nasal part of the pharynx) is the uppermost part of the pharynx. It extends from the base of the skull to upper surface of the soft palate. Here are some photos for you to see it,

Now I am taking anti-allergy meds. I hope after a week of taking these new sets of meds everything would be fine. Let's wait and see.

P.S. to my friends here in blogosphere, I'm sorry I cannot visit your blogs for the time being. But I'll try to visit okay. I hope you are all well.

Here is a story of "I think" is True Love. That in times of sorrow and grief, the one that you love is still there even he or she is gone... forever...

A young married couple, Holly and Gerry, have a joke between the
m; If anything ever happened to him, he'd have to write her a list or else she'd never be able to cope without him. "The List" grew to encompass advice for any eventuality, a joke all their friends shared. When Gerry's severe headache is diagnosed as brain cancer and Holly tragically loses him in a few short months, she is devastated and unmoored. She hasn't just lost her husband, she's lost her very identity. And then it arrives; a package marked "The List". Gerry has kept his promise, and inside this package are ten envelopes to be opened over a period of ten months. Each letter offers specific instructions to guide Holly through grief, and ultimately grant her permission to return to life. Of course each letter ends with PS, I Love You.

The Novel includes a cast of raucously funny and memorable characters, including Holly's best friends and four siblings who range in personality from the pink-haired world traveler Ciara to stick-in-the-mud Richard. Set in Ireland, the book has a wonderful Irish atmosphere reminiscent of Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes. PS, I LOVE YOU is a warm, witty, heartfelt and romantic story about the blessings of friendship, family and the eternal nature of true love.

And these are for my BFF!

Yeah I know... that's your reaction, my BFF :-p

Happy Hearts Day to you BFF...

Twilight + Harry Potter = ??

I was sick this monday with that I was not able to get to work. I hate it when I absent myself from work. My joints and muscles where aching. See I told you, I will get sick before or after my birthday. Talkin' bout birthday again huh. LOLz! Now my throat is aching, I need to see my doctor later. Hopefully I can get back to work tomorrow night. Oh well, you might be wondering how I've arrived with that equation. I love to read books especially novels. I thought I won't find time to read, but out of my busy schedule, I found a novel series that interest me. Well, it all started when I was searching for a book online. I was searching about a book how to overcome grief and how to comfort a person who is in grief. Some of you might be familiar with online books or what they call eBooks. Where in you can read your favorite books online for free instead of buying the book itself. For those who always go online they have the luxury of reading their books online through these eBooks. This is how I read all 4 books of the Twilight Series without buying the hard copies. As I was browsing and looking for the book I wanted, I saw a novel online. At first I hesitate to check it out because the title itself sounds spooky and boring. But I started to read it and got hooked to it just like on the Twilight Series books. For those Harry Potter and Twilight fans, let me share to you this book.

I found the book online House of Night just like Harry Potter and Twilight it comes in series too. By author's
P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
came the book series of the House of Night. Let me give you an overview of the book.

The book is all about vampire-themed young-adult. In the books, the bloodsuckers, known as “vampyres,” have assimilated into society, and when their special traits begin to appear during the onset of puberty, they’re sent to the titular school for training to become adult vampyres. The ongoing story follows young Zoey Redbird as she discovers her true identity and tries to adapt to her new “lifestyle.” “P.C. and Kristin Cast created a thrilling world that juxtaposes teen drama with supernatural suspense, using the transition from human to vampire as a metaphor for the transition from adolescence to adulthood,” While I was reading the first chapter of the book series it came to me that I was like reading the continuation of the book 4 Breaking Dawn of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. It's like the daughter of Edward and Bella have grown rapidly and now a teenager about to become a full pledged vampire.

The House of Night currently have 4 books published. You can click on the titles of each of the books below for you to read the whole novel for free.

Book 1: MARKED

The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 17-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampyre, that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are Chosen make the Change. It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep
within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.


Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She’s come to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her, and is getting a handle on being the new Leader of the Dark Daughters. Best of all, Zoey finally feels like she belongs--like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend...or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey’s old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night, and Zoey must find the courage to face a betrayal that could break her heart, her soul, and jeopardize the very fabric of her world.

Book 3: CHOSEN

Dark forces are at work at the House of Night, and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends.
Mix a little blood lust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social, and eventually emotional disaster for Zoey and cut her off from life at the House of Night to... Hellish Life! Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid stepfather in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. Not to mention, Zoey is having a bit of boy trouble. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth...


Zoey has lost all of her boyfriends, when Erik Night caught her cheating on him, Loren Blake was killed and her imprint with Heath Luck was broken, and has also lost her friends' trust for lying to them. Neferet is up to no good, as proven when Aphrodite receives a vision about Zoey's grandmother writing a poem which was originally a song about dangerous creatures which have the form of ravens. Zoey grows closer to Aphrodite, but also regains her friends' trust when she explains why she could not be truthful to them. A new character, James Stark, is introduced as well. Stark has an instant connection with Zoey. He tells her of his unique gift of never missing his target making him dangerous with a bow and arrow. He dies in her arms when his body rejects the change. Zoey confides in him as he is about to pass away that he may not be permanently dead, and that he may return as a new kind of fledgling. In the end, this proves to be true as Stark returns as an undead creature and follows Neferet's command to injure Stevie Rae and causes her to bleed onto the ground, making it appear as if the earth is bleeding, thus rendering a line in the poem true. This returns the spirit that the poem spoke of back to the surface. Zoey leads her friends, including her former boyfriend Erik Night, away from the House of Night and plans to defeat Neferet and save the House of Night.

To be released in March 10, 2009 is Book 5 HUNTED but I found it's plot:

What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you? At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face?

On the run and holed up in Tulsa’s Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well – they’ve even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home – but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Erik, but she can’t stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet’s sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

Book 6 has been announced on the official website of the House of Night titled TEMPTED. But no plot or release date about this book yet.

I have done some researching and found out that they are planning to do a movie on the House of Night. Better read first the books before the film comes out. But I found a sneak peek trailer of the movie project. Check it out.
