The 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival

100_8439

A blog about Manila is not complete without posting the fabulous Metro Manila Film Festival which is on it’s 37th year now. 

A few years back a good friend neighbor used to drag us to Roxas Boulevard to watch the Parade of Stars.  I’m not much of a showbiz person but I support anything that promote the Filipino talents, and I have always been amazed on how the floats of each participating movie is exhibited.  It is a great experience seeing how the float designs improved each year both in artistry and technology. This year I am lucky to catch some floats being set-up just before they are lined-up for the Parade of the Stars.

Happy 1st... of September! (Re-post: 95 Days Before Christmas)

Happy 1st of September everyone! Today I started downloading my favorite collection of Christmas songs and add them back on my playlist.  I am playing the Ray Conniff selection while editing this post. Please don't be confused with the content/title of this post.  Today, 1st of September is technically 113 days more before Christmas . The following content is a re-post from my former blog "The Lucky Blog" originally titled as "95 Days Before Christmas"... ~ It kind of surprised me big time when I heard from today’s morning news that it is just 95 more days before Christmas!  I can’t help but utter the over used but oh so true phrase “time flies so fast”!  And it flies more faster when you are so caught up with the daily rushes of life that you missed to savor the moment when the most anticipated season of the year is fast approaching.
