2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 750 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 13 trips to carry that many people.

The Fault In Our Stars

I love the book and I love the movie.  That’s the first thing I said after I read and watched the movie.

The book:

I’ve been searching for the English version of the book for the past months. Most of the time when I go to a bookshop, they only offer a copy of this book in Dutch language. I’m still one of those people who actually prefer real books than e-readers. I was super happy to have finally found the book.  I actually did not know what to expect about this book. I haven’t read anything about it but I was curious enough to give it a try since almost everybody is going gaga about it.

Honestly, I can’t put the book down. It took me several days to actually finish the story. I also brought my copy at work and find time to read it when im not that busy.  I love the story, it’s not the ordinary ones as I may say. It’s light on some parts and heavy most of the time. Tears come flowing, I am moved.

The movie:

When I knew that there would be a movie of The Fault In Our Stars, I said to myself that I have to go watch it. I have to watch it as soon as the movie arrives here in the Netherlands. I’m kinda proud that they shot a part of the film in Amsterdam in which where I used to go everyday.

After watching the movie, it made me think about the one I read.  They actually filled my imagination. I already expected that they will look the same. They gave justice to the book and I’m happy about it. I can’t stop sobbing at the cinema. I like the way on how they portray the characters in the book. Free flowing and it seems like it’s natural which I kinda like and not thinking that they are actors in a movie.

In real life, I kinda know how it is like to deal with people with cancer. I have handled patients with cancer and know people who are fighting and still fighting cancer. I hate how cancer is being a bitch to people, how it actually change people’s lives. I salute and respect the ones who are dealing with it. They are strong,  they are really strong people.

The Philippines: Antipolo (Holy Week)

It was Holy week at this time when we were in Antipolo. We like going there because we can see the skyline of Manila plus it is a bit cooler there than in the big city. We also visited one of our favorite church (like we always do) and this time it was special because we were there during holy week.

Since it is holy week, the church is really busy and there is a procession. Oh, the only thing we did not like is that we waited more than an hour in the car because we were stuck in the traffic.  We did not realize that the procession will be big and it will take a long time. We waited almost an hour before our car can move again.

The Philippines: Calamba Private Pool

Living in luxury.

Well,  another way to celebrate the birthday of my fiance is to bring him to a private hot springs pool. I’m glad that we did this, that we actually thought of renting a whole private house where we can celebrate his birthday. This idea is much better than sharing the pool with other people. I love how we can just do our own thing and nobody will care with the things we do and of course enjoy the night swim.

It is much better to swim and relax there since we own the whole place.  It is possible in the Philippines to do that kind of thing and it will not cost you a fortune to rent it. The house we rented is fully furnished where you can sleep, cook, grill and even chill on the sofa. You can also sing with their karaoke machine and of course enjoy your day swimming in a hot spring pool and relax at the jacuzzi. I love how the owners don’t put chlorine on the pool or even in the jacuzzi. The water is pure and really hot since it came naturally from the volcano. I can’t wait for the next visit again.

Philippines: Sky Ranch Tagaytay

This time we finally have the time to visit the famous Sky Ranch Tagaytay.

First impression of the place: It looks fun!

There are lots of things to do in Sky Ranch Tagaytay like ride their attractions, go zipline, eat at the stalls and restaurants and enjoy the view of the Taal Volcano and Lake.

I like the idea that they did there.  People can just stay and have a good time with a nice view. It is no wonder why it is always full.
