As we were talking over dinner about the scariest movies of all time, my husband was able to set the mood for Saturday Horror Night. He immediately searched online on movies (old and new) that are considered to be on top of the list. We chose The Shining (Jack Nicholson). Based on a novel by Stephen King. It wasn't scary. It was sick!
A dad (Jack Nicholson), a family man who wanted a good life for his family. Finally nailed a job in an old Hotel, famous for its scenic beauty for ski lovers. He didn't know that the old place had a history, that every man set for the job turned it down. Being a person with deep thoughts and who wants change, he agreed to get the job. Guarding the Hotel for 5 months, the whole Winter. The only transportation that can access the place during this complicated season is a snow mobile.
With the history where an old caretaker went berserk and killed his family, some believed that his spirit still lives in the hotel.
Jack's family stayed with him. It went well at first, but as they stayed longer, things began to change. Jack was getting irritable, his son (who was gifted to have The Shining or ESP) sees things and started getting bad encounters. And the only person who remained intact was the mom played by Shelley Duvall.
"Though not initially successful, the film has had status as a cult film for years. It has since gone on to broad mainstream success, now being frequently ranked as one of the best horror films in history and its iconic imagery deeply embedded throughout popular culture, although there was a long interval between its release and its achievement of iconic status." -wiki-
The movie was really good. For a 1980's flick, they did a pretty good job. The actors portrayed their roles well. Especially Jack Nicholson. His transistion from being a good Father to an evil psycho. That was just creepy. Anyway, I give it 5 stars. It is the #1 scary movie of all time. You wanna know why? look for it and watch.
Little that you know, aside from bummin' around the house the whole weekend, my husband and I went for a quick flick of Angels and Demons sunday evening.
To start, it was too good that I couldn't think of any words on how to make a review. Yey! Tom Hanks! I missed this guy. He is one of my favorite actors. Actually I really don't want to comment about the movie. Basing it on my personal point of view, I might create conflict with people who has a different look about the whole story behind not the movie itself. I mean, thats how good it is. Plus, I want to travel and study Ancient Rome :D
To end the weekend, I declare The RING as the next scariest movie of all time. Well, we can't actually compare Western from Eastern movies. Their both different. The Ring was just off-beat, you don't know when you'll get scared. We watched it again before going to bed sunday night.
"After "normal" Sadako was murdered, the other Sadako merges with her. This merger involves no physical contact, as the child Sadako is locked in a room when it occurs (and vanishes afterwards), and two characters watching over the nearby corpse of older Sadako witnesses only the reanimation of her corpse.
The "restored" Sadako is mostly based on the older one, although when provoked her powers surface and her appearance change to resemble her younger form (her face obscured by her hair, moving mostly through shadows).-wiki-
My weekend was spent at home. I decided to free myself from certain chores and habits I do daily, like blogging. I cooked a good meal from breakfast, lunch, dinner and some midnight snacks. The only thing that I did away from the usual was a quick stop at the Gateway Mall to buy donuts for my son. We immediately went home and enjoyed our purchase for the day.
Introducing, Krispy Kreme's Greenapple Cheesecake Donut.
I was never fond of eating assorted donuts. I'm all for chocolate. If not, just the plain ones. But this, I must admit, I made exceptions. We also bought their New York Cheesecake. Both are really good. Not too sweet, not too heavy and it is very delicious.
I got too relaxed, I totally forgot about my WS entry. So immediately I took a picture of my precious donut.

Aside from being blessed with my son graduating from summer school today. On our way home, he (my son) pointed me this wonder up in the sky.
It was magnificent. My first time to see an unusual cloud formation. These things are real. You know those movies when kids sometimes see a rabbit or a tree in the sky.
We were drawn in aweness today by a heart. After taking the picture, we made a turn, then it vanished.

Coloring by age? it is definitely for everybody. It's different. Everytime I color, it makes me reminisce on my childhood. Those art classes I attended in elementary, my mom teaching me coloring techniques.
It brought a lovely feeling and some sweet thoughts. Felt I was 20 years younger.

Then, my brother (Nano) asked me to take his picture. He loves motor bikes. He actually own one. As a hobby, he pimped his own bike, he loves watching motor bike races on TV and collects pictures from various readings. This is also my very first photo of him. Nothing great, nothing unusual. Just a mere photo. I will invite him soon to make his own portfolio. So far, I only have pictures of my sisters. None from my brothers. I love to have a collection of them too.

This one was at my Aunt's house in Laguna. It poured over our parade. And what do you know, we got umbrellas in case we get wet.
Spongebob what?! can you see the spoon he's holding. After taking a bath, it's eating time. And he can't wait.

I had a really bad Migraine Friday, the plan to go out of town was moved.
A separate post for my Mother's Celebration will be up soon. For now, here are the things my family gave me on Mother's Day.

Now as I celebrate my 5th as a Mother. I thank my Mommy for being there for me all the time. For the nurturing and nourishment, for the extra love she always give. For being patient with me, for teaching me the simplicity of life. The guidance and giving inspiration in choosing my husband to be, and for being a sweet grandmother to my son...
With this, I would also like to greet my Mother-in-law a very special Mother's Day with warm hugs! Thank you for accepting me as your daughter, for the guidance, love and appreciation. Your son is in good hands. He is well taken cared of...
Who wouldn't want to smile and laugh? Especially with our little ones. I am very happy to share some of my exclusive Happy Mommy Moments with my son. I am a happy mom. My son loves to hang out, particularly outdoors--- a lot. As much as possible, we take him out. It makes him happy to run around, and it makes us more happy just seeing him smile.

Now, I'm so occupied playing Burger Rush, Diner Dash, and Burger Shop. All these games are just so fun to play with. It will also make you drool. While my son's taking a nap, instead of blogging and making my usual drops ,I play.
These games are available from Yahoo Games. There's a trial for 1hr. and you can purchase the full version for $7. They look cute and easy. But I tell you, they are very challenging, especially when meeting the game's goals- objectives.
Another thing that kept me was my other site in Multiply. I just recently upgraded it. Since that's where I post my albums and personal stuff, and I survived a year with it. It was my gift for the site, turning it to Multiply Premium.
With that, I also made changes with the look and updated its content. That site of mine are exclusively for friends, online buddies and family only. I try to protect some images and stories. Multiply is a different world from Blogger. If you happen to have an account, let me know so can I visit you there too.
