Payphone (Jayesslee Cover)

When I was browsing my newsfeed, someone posted this on her wall. When I opened my twitter, a friend of mine tweeted this.

And because I really really reeeallyyyy love Maroon 5’s Payphone (and Maroon 5 of course!), I got interested with their cover.

Tadaaa! Here I am, blogging it 😉

Their voices are sooo sweet and I really love it! Plus, the twin factor 😉 Ohhhh, I wish I had a twin sister 😦

Check out their cover! You’ll love it for sure 😉

Movie: Front of the Class (2008)

A man with Tourette Syndrome (TS) proves that he can achieve his dreams despite his disability.

Based on a true story, Brad Cohen (Jimmy Wolk) was suffering with tics, unusual noises since he was six years old. He was bullied in school, and oftentimes caught his teacher’s attention during class which caused him to be summoned in the principal’s office. Sadly, his father thought that Brad only wanted attention (Brad’s parents were divorced). His mother noticed that his son can’t really control his movement so because of her determination, she did her own research and found out that he might have a tourette syndrome, which was confirmed soon after.

When Brad reached middle school, he thought that things would be different because of the new environment, but he was wrong – he was still bullied. Until one day, the principal forced him to attend the music rehearsal. After the rehearsal, he was asked to explain about his condition and asked them that he wanted to be treated like everybody else.

Brad wanted to become a teacher. His father doubted, but his mother and younger supported him. Because of his urge to reach his dreams, he was able to find a school that’s for him (when he transferred in Atlanta).

He was able to get along with his young students and proved that he can be a teacher just like other normal educator. Brad Cohen was awarded Georgia’s First Class Teacher of the Year.

———-

I can truly say that this is an inspirational movie. People with disabilities tend to lose hope and get rid of their dreams because they believe that they can’t achieve it. Which is wrong. They just need to be supported by the people around them, or the people they would be dealing with, and of course, motivation from themselves that they can do it. Just like the comparison Brad Cohen had said:

“Children look at life differently than most adults. They see the world and say, I will. Not, I can’t” (Cohen)

As for the lead actor, Jimmy Wolk:

He did a great job (also considering his look :”>). He’s the second person (excluding the young Brad) I was able to watch portraying a character with TS. And he’s better than the first actor I saw.

The young Brad, Dominic Scott Kay:

He also did well. It came naturally and I really admired it. Plus his looks :”>

Reblog: Mr. Kimbob Korean food for Filipinos on budget by iemkei

Mr. Kimbob Korean food for Filipinos on budget

By iemkei on May 17, 2012

Korean food! Hello Mr. Kimbob! Oooh. The long title. :) )))

Image

Mr. Kimbob: Korean Health Food offers very affordable Korean dishes.

Here is my favorite from Mr. Kimbob!

Bibimbap/Bibimbob

Image

For only P99 you can enjoy Bibimbap with a spicy sauce (optional) and a free soup!

They have Chicken, beef and Pork Bibimbap, choose from the three. And as you know with Korean dishes, vegetables are always present. With a very affordable price, you’ll get the proper nourishment you need! Mr Kimbob’s Bibimbop has been sprout, carrots, spinach and the ever known Kimchi. Another plus for the egg on top! My Korean friend told me that it’s better to mix all the ingredients before eating it. If you want it to be a little spicy, put some sauce on it, which you can get for free. If you don’t like to mix it, you can still eat it separately. Your choice!

By the way, the free soup is kinda spicy but very tasty! Like it much. :>

My another favorite: Tukboki

Image

Mr. Kimbob’s Tukboki is so cheap yet very yummy! Other Korean restos sell it for more than P100 but Mr. Kimbob really knows the sceneries in Filipinos’ pockets. ;) You can have Tukboki with P69 only! Good deal, I can say! Tukboki is a street food in Korea, but as for me, you can consider it as a main dish.

Tukboki is rice cake with a spicy sauce. It might look few but it is enough to make your tummy so full! It’s a little sweet but the spiciness still dominates. Much love for this! :D

Don’t forget to buy your drinks if you’ll be trying some spicy dishes! Here is their menu:

  • Bibimbob Combo – 125
  • Mr. Chicken Combo Meal – 199 (NEW)
  • Chicken Family Pack – 599 (NEW)
  • Mr. Chicken w/o drinks – 99

“You’re in the beginning. Nobody’s good in the beginning.”

This was the line of Simon Camden to little Ruby Camden when she was about to enter school for the first time. These two characters were from “the longest-running show that has ever aired on The WB”, the 7th Heaven (will be doing a review of the TV series in the future ;D).

Just like other pre-schoolers, Ruby (Mackenzie Rosman) was afraid to go to school for the first time. And there’s her big brother Simon (David Gallagher) who tried to explain to her how great school is, and ended up telling her the quote above.

Thinking about it, it’s the truth. There are times that people tend to get nervous and afraid at start because they still don’t know what might happen to them – mistakes, failures, or might be unaccepted by others. Just look at the brighter side: each and every one of us never knew how to walk when we were still toddlers. We failed a lot of times, and look where we are right now – a human being who knows how to walk, run, jog, and hop. The beginning may be kind or cruel but this will help us grow and learn a lot 🙂
