I seem to be talking a lot at home whenever my middle brother is at home, which is not very often. As for the talking, it’s because I don’t have anyone else to talk to when he’s not around but myself. And because I share the same interests with him in most things, I can talk to him about these.

The ‘kwentuhan’ (chatting or dicussing) started with the movie “About Time” then it went to how pale and how ginger Domhnall Gleeson (Tim in the movie) is; to what “something rectangular” means from one of Tim’s dialogues; then it was The Legal Wife as I had my TV tuned to the program; up to Giordano’s Korean superstar endorsers So Ji-sub and Shin Min-ah and Jang Dong-gun as well as former Giordano model; Wes Anderson’s movies; Divergent’s Shailene Woodley; and how The Fault in Our Stars is a bit too predictable and teenybopper; Meteor Garden, Princess Hours, Lovers in Paris; how Dakota Fanning now have more competition in the presence of Saoirse Ronan, Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld; the new horror Oculus; to the two Pinay runner ups’ at Asia’s Next Top Model; to Paulo Avelino; Kathryn Bernardo; Pangako Sa’yo; and the now married Keira Knightley, Carrie Mulligan and Sienna Miller who happen to be friends; Jude Law; James McAvoy; Tilda Swinton; Eddie Redmayne; Rinko Kikuchi; Felicity Jones, Robert Pattinson; the upcoming movie Crimson Peak, Snowpiercer; Mia Wasikowska; Daniel Radcliffe; Jessica Chastain; the upcoming Cinderella movie; Ethan Hawke; Alfonso Cuaron; and Juno Temple – the curly and bad cousin from Atonement who looks so different now.
