I watched & heard New Moon


New Moon (the movie) is 100% better than Twilight (the first sequel).. though New Moon is my least favorite book from the saga.. Umm, coz Edward gone. And Bella is so pathetic in that book (dba ysiad?)

Tuesdays with Morrie

I just finished watching Tuesdays with Morrie based on the book by Mitch Albom..

After watching the film, I told myself that I'll read this book again.. I love love love Tuesdays with Morrie.. it's really inspiring.. it made me realize a lot of things.. Helped me when I read it in 2006..

"when you're in bed you're dead." - maybe not literally dead.. but the quote from the book help me realize that: "hey! i'm alive! i shouldn't be stuck in bed."




Help Baby Janine

I stumbled upon this from my Facebook wall:


My name is Johanna Tejada-Medalla and I am a mother of two young boys and daughter named Jorge Rafael, Julian Hanns and Janine Marie Victoria. We are living in my parent’s house at 40 Kennedy Drive Tandang Sora Quezon City 1116, Philippines.

This is the truth

My dad asked me to make a poster of 'The Truth Video' so that he could have it printed, framed & display it..


and I used Edward Cullen's 'Be Safe' font from the book Twilight.. :P

Why are you depress?

I got this from Armin's wall in Facebook.. I just want to share it with my readers.. :)

DEALING WITH DEPRESSION

Everyone of us goes through times when life seems extremely difficult – we are left alone, we can’t pay the bills, we have lost our job, we have lost our love one. At these times we wonder how we will possibly make it through the next week. Somehow we usually do!

Fieldtrip



we went to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban yesterday.. thanks to my mom's friend Tita Melba..

I slept early on Friday night because, tita Melba will pick us up at 5:30am.. i slept around, 10pm.. that's early for me.. Haha!

I had a (fantasy?) dream.. I was sword fighting with villain in the story (this sentence is c/o Maro).. I stabbed him.. then he exploded.. I woke up because I heard the loud explosion. When I opened my eyes, I thought there was an explosion outside.. Then the electricity went off. Brownout. I asked my mom what was that LOUD explosion..

I don't look in the mirror often..

"I noticed you have no mirrors," I said.
"They serve no purpose," he told me.
"Because they're mostly for vanity?" I questioned.
"More than that," he answered. "Those who've marred their appearance in any way by their actions in life aren't forced to witness that marring. If they were, they'd become self-conscious and be unable to concentrate on improving themselves."

-from the book What dreams may come

There's hope in silence & darkness

Holly Alonzo has an NF2 and is raising funds for her ABI (Auditory Brainstem Implant).. I don't really know her.. Her NF2 made her DEAF and BLIND, but she never gave up & lose hope.. You can purchase her ebook for 7$ (through paypal) at http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/never-giving-up-hope/7293409

Holly is almost totally deaf. She needs the ABI urgently because she can’t see either.

She needs USD20,000.00 for her implant.. All proceeds will go to her ABI fund..

Let's help Holly & be inspired.

NF-NF-F

I got a NEW FOUND-NEUROFIBROMATOSIS-FRIEND :)


She is Cheska Alterman, 13 years old. She was diagnosed with NF1 5 months ago.. We me her and her mom, Tita Barbara at POC (Phil Orthopedic Center) last Monday. She is on a wheelchair right now because she recently had a nuerofibroma (tumor) operation underneath her thigh and she's having her rehab (PT) at POC..

I cried 3 drops of tears..

This is how my computer screen looks like every 10:30-11pm for 4 (?) weeks.. 1 Liter of Tears is being aired on GMA.. It's tagalog dubbed but I can't hear it so I still need subtitles..

I watched it 3 (or 4) times already, and I always cry 3 drops of tears.. Haha.

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

SHE DID

Just finished watching the movie version of 1 Litre of Tears.


Because it's a movie, the pacing is fast.. And there aren’t as much tear-jerking scenes as the drama series.. But it's still a tear-jerker.. I prefer the series pa rin.. Ayun, I watch it over and over.. Hehe.


*another blog entry about 1 litre of tears? na-adik na.. ;P

I don't want a time machine

This episode of 1 Liter of Tears was aired today on GMA.. I was really waiting for this episode when she wanted to make a time machine, because I want to blog something related to it.. ^__^

1 Litre of Tears
http://www.mysoju.com/1-litre-of-tears/
This beautifully moving drama is based on the real-life struggles of a 15-year-old girl named Aya who suffered from an incurable disease, but lived life to the fullest until her death at 25. The script is based on the diary Aya kept writing until she could no longer hold a pen. The book that later followed entitled “One Litre of Tears"

Kathrina & Katrina are both an artist

Katrina is now hearing and speaking a few words.. And she needs our help..

Let's give them HOPE

"Sometimes we take pens and pencils for granted. But for some unfortunate but beautiful children, these are very special things. These can make life in school a little better, a little easier."
-Pens of Hope
A few years ago, I visited a school in my home province and noticed that some kiddos go to school without any writing instruments. In one classroom, I noticed a child writing with a pencil about 2.5-inch in length. Imagine how difficult it is to write with a writing instrument of that length!

This is definitely a good news..

Stem Cells Could Cure Deafness
Stem cell researchers have made a breakthrough they believe could someday cure deafness, the Times of London reports. The British team, working with stem cells from the inner ear, have successfully grown early versions of the cells that enable hearing and now aim to create functional cells that can be transplanted into the inner ear to reverse hearing loss. Researchers say a cure for total hearing loss is still at least a decade away, but believe their work can be used immediately to test new drugs and probe the causes of deafness. "This research is incredibly promising and opens up exciting possibilities by bringing us closer to restoring hearing in the future,” said a research director at the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.

My Hand Surgery

I'm home.. Of course, my surgery this morning was a minor surgery & I was an out-patient.. The operation was about less than an hour.. Around 8minutes for the preparation before the procedure itself.. Then it only took around 20minutes for my doctor to cut & remove the huge tumor.. Then about 10minutes to stitch my hand.. Haha! I kinda took a mental note of the time because there's a clock on the wall.. My head & eyes keep on switching glances from the wall clock, to the ceiling & to my hand.. Yes, I got to see it.. I saw my open-bloody hand being operated.. When Dr. Lopez told us that my right hand needs to be operated, my question is: "can I look?"

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

My Hand Operation

Because I have a Defomed Right Hand

I'll have my most awaited operation on Thursday, March 26, 6:30am at Medical City.. I really want it to be done soon so that I could get back to my therapies & I could enjoy the summer.. Hehe.

It's just minor & it's benign.. Though it'll be biopsied to be sure.. So please pray for me.. It'll me my 11th operation-scar.. Haha! :P

Have you prayed already?

One of our (me & my mom) NFF (new found friend) through my hEAR Campaign, Ms. Mitch Delgado texted me this afternoon:
"Hi kcat, Hi tita madge, my dad is at the hospital right now. Please pray for his fast recovery. There's a cyst on his head, causing him to forget things & reduces oxygen to his body. Thanks. God bless!"


Let's include his dad, Manuel Delgado (65 years old) in our prayers..

Because PRAYERS MOVE MOUNTAINS..

I CAN -song

I want to do another AVP about me (for something), just a short slideshow of me & my so-called 'moving on'.. I already conceptualized everything I want to put in it.. The only problem is, I don't know what music I should put.. It's the hardest part for me.. Yeah, deciding on what music to put.. So i just set aside the idea and just continued playing Pet Society.. Haha! Maybe I'll just use my 'I Am Kcat video' for the something I'm preparing for.. ;P Then when i checked my mail this morning (or was it already afternoon?), i saw Armin's email with the subject: Song

Hi Ms. Yarza,

I ask myself kung if I CAN write you a song, and I CAN.....Na inspire kasi ako sayo kaya I made you a song, actually ginagawa ko na ito since november pa pero ngayon ko lang natapos... busy kasi yung kaibigan kong guitarista.. ang I know you will here this soon... very clearly.... most of the lyrics came from you... life must go on... di ba and I CAN...he he he
