FS Picks of the Week, Sep 14-20



I'm frustrated (a little more than usual) because there's a chance I won't be able to go on that much-looked-forward to trip to the US next month -- it's a long story. Not all hope is lost, though... maybe.


I've also just learned last night that a cousin of mine was stabbed to death a couple of months ago and nobody's bothered to tell me. He was a dead-beat (pardon the pun), but nobody in the family would have wanted that to happen to him, so it's very sad. It's also creepy because my sisters and I have just seen him just a few days before he went missing (and we rarely go home to the province). His last words to us:

"Where's my money?"




I've digressed.



Anyway, new movies out this week -- not sure how good they are. I've put In My Life on my list because my mum's a big Vilma Santos fan. Hehe!

In My Life

I don't understand why some people have the balls to kill, let alone in such a heartless manner. I hope you're okay, though. I know, that's silly. Who would be okay after knowing your cousin was stabbed to death. I apologize.

thanks, mel. yeah, i thought things like that only happen to other people. of course that's dumb, but you never really know it's possible until it happens to one of your own.

Oh one more thing. In my life looks interesting. Usually, I just wait for Filipino movies to come out on DVDS, but this one, I might actually go see it in the cinema. Haha
