Tony and Jackey Salon

Hey guys! How are you all? As for me, I feel so great. Because I just had my hair cut done. My last haircut was like ages ago. Haha. It was last December 2009. So I said to myself, it’s about time. I had my haircut done at Tony and Jackey Salon. It was so amazing. I love the result.

Tony and Jackey is a Korean salon. My hairdresser is Ria, she’s korean. She’s so great, very friendly and accommodating. She’s a real expert. She knows what I want. The haircut at Tony and Jackey is 500Php. Expensive compared to other salons but it’s so worth it. After she did my haircut another Korean girl ironed my hair and its free!! You can straighten or curl your hair after your haircut. Very nice.

I will definitely go back to Tony and Jackey. Here’s a picture of me, Ria and the other Korean girls. Hehe!
This has been Abby saying I heart you and Tony and Jackey!

Much love,

MUST SEE MOVIE: Red Riding Hood

Hey guys! Good evening. I just got home; I went out with my friends. We went to Greenbelt 3 and watched Red Riding Hood. This is a blog review for the movie.

Obviously, from it’s title, this movie was inspired by the very famous fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Fairy tale inspired movies are really “in” right now, there’s another movie Beauty and the Beast starring Vanessa Hudgens, that’s coming out real soon. I don’t know lately it’s fairy tale all over again. From vampires to fairy tales. Nice!  This movie was produced by Leonardo de Caprio. This movie is from the director of Twilight.

Okay so Amanda Seyfried is the star on this film, she did a pretty good job in this movie. It only gets to show that she’s really a good actress. She also starred in the movies, Jennifer’s Body, Dear John and Letters to Juliet, which she also did a very good job. Her name on this film is Valerie. The setting is, she’s living with her family in a village and she’s in love with this wood cutter named Peter. They were childhood friends. She was engaged to another man, which she didn’t love. Of course this movie will not work if we don’t have the infamous “Werewolf”. There’s a lot of twists in this movie. The werewolf is also living in the village. Valerie can talk with the werewolf.  It was very shocking when the real werewolf was revealed.

The Cast:

Amanda Seyfried as Valerie
Virginia Madsen as Suzette
Billy Burke as Cesaire
Julie Christie as Grandmother
Gary Oldman as Father Solomon
Max Irons as Henry Lazar
Michael Shanks as Adrien Lazar
Christine Willes as Madame Lazar
Michael Hogan as The Reeve
Lukas Haas as Father August

Amanda’s acting here is outstanding, I will not say it’s the best, but it’s something new especially for her as a new actress. It gave her career a different take. She portrayed the role very well. She looks innocent and powerful at the same time on the film. But the ending was sad. That’s all I can say, because I don’t want to spoil it for you. So you better watch it! It’s a good movie. So that’s my take on this fairy tale movie. I’ll talk to you guys on my next blog. Bye!

This has been Abby saying I heart you. Go home and beware of the werewolf!

Much love,

Disaster in Japan

Hey guys.. sorry I haven’t been blogging for quite sometime now. I’m kinda busy. Okay I feel inspired in blogging today because of what happened to Japan yesterday. It was so scary, devastating and unexpected. What happened to Japan I think was very extreme compared on the previous earthquakes that hit the said country. Japan is immune with tsunamis but the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country yesterday was sick!!! It was a 23 foot tsunami.  

Most countries nowadays experience minimal earthquakes. Yesterday, according to CNN, Japan was attacked by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by an enormous tsunami. News shows the actual video where you can see how the earthquake happened and how the tsunami swept the entire city.

It was really scary, yesterday when I watched the news; it looks like it came from a movie, but no. This is happening for real.
You can read this news post by Malcolm Foster so you can get a better picture of what happened yesterday.

The entire city was damaged, all cell cites were broken, cars, houses, trees were everywhere. Hundreds of people died. All means of living were destroyed, rice fields and farms. In just a matter of two minutes, most of the lives were shattered. It was really scary at the same time sad. Most part of the world are experiencing terrorism, in Libya, Egypt, Iraq etc.. and now tsunamis and earthquakes? My mother is in Japan too, I don’t know if she’s fine but I hope she is. We lost contact to her years ago. But may God be with her always.

This should serve as a wake up call to everyone, if you’re affected or not. Let’s think of ways to protect our country. We can never tell what will happen next. We maybe safe for now but we cannot hold the future.

My thoughts and prayers go out for those who were affected by this calamity. Hope all of you are safe and warm. Wherever you are, may God be with you always.

This has been Abby saying I heart you.

much love,
