KATOLIKO AKO

Pa-isa lang po this Good Friday.

Narinig ko lang: "KATOLIKO AKO pero gaya ni President di ako naniniwala sa mga kumpisal-kumpisal at simba-simba na yan."

Hindi ka KATOLIKO ungas, niloloko mo lang sarili mo!

Yun ibang tao ginagawang parang ulam ang religion. Halimbawa, paborito ko ang sinigang pero ayaw ko ng may gabi at okra.

I don't criticize people for their beliefs but I do despise hypocrisy.

Meanwhile sa kalsada sa Manila kanina...

Lalaki (20s): Kuya, kuya baka pwede po makahingi tulong pamasahe pauwi po ko sa Paranaque.

Me: Naku kuya nilakad ko na yan dati, kayang-kaya mo yan sundan mo lang LRT.

*QC nga nilalakad ko lang

SENIOR CITIZEN LANES

Medyo mahaba pila sa MERALCO today. Tapos may eksena pa.

Well medyo mahaba pila talaga both sa REGULAR lane at sa SENIOR lane. Pero mas mabilis ang process sa regular lane kasi 4 ang tellers. Habang sa senior lane 1 dedicated teller lang. Marami sa mga seniors na nakapila ay nakatayo na. So naturally may nakapansin na senior at nagreklamo at nagsusuggest na madagdagan ang teller kaso syempre senior na matagal na nakapila so medyo galit ang pagkakasabi n'ya.

THE SAD PART IS: Yun teller ng senior imbes na i address ang issue ay tumayo at nag rason na isa lang talaga ang linya para sa senior at mag antay na lang na tawagin - so parang walang choice talaga. Ganun din yun guards nirarason nya na pareho naman mahaba.

THE SADDER PART IS: I can hear people sa regular lanes murmuring na kung gusto daw ni tatang na mabilis e sa regular lane sya pumila or pumunta sya ng maaga kung ayaw nya ng mahabang pila. Tapos pinagtatawanan pa sya.

#1: Hindi po pinapatupad ang SENIOR AND PWD LANES para pang DISCRIMINATE. It's primary purpose is to provide convenience to the elderly and PWDs. If di sya nagbibigay ng convenience then it's useless!

#2: MERALCO should train their personnels to be more compassionate or at least have the brains (or heart) to address situations accordingly. Wala na po bang ibang paraan talaga?

So I politely suggested to one of the tellers na why not assigning 1 more lane to the seniors muna hanggang maging manageable lang ang pila, yun lahat sila nakakaupo na. Bale magiging 3:2 ang ratio muna. Tapos balik ulit sa regular pag ok na. Not sure kung nakinig. Kasi mukhang lahat ata sila ayaw ma assign sa SENIOR LANE.

Nakakalungkot.

Sa isip-isip ko, TATANDA RIN KAYO LAHAT.

AVENGERS END GAME THOUGHTS

I just realized that I have not actually made a review of the Captain Marvel movie so here it is:
Like I said in my article, it's not MCUs finest and it's not because Infinity War have set the bar high like everyone wants to believe but rather because James Wan's Aquaman is just so much fun to watch that we'd expect that the hyped-up Captain Marvel movie would live up to expectation to rival DC's most successful film. Which it did not.

Instead what many saw was a marketing tool for a feminist agenda that really took away all the fun in the film. She's a comic book character, not a mascot!

So we turn to Goose as the film's saving grace!

Storytelling was okay, action scenes feels so uninspired and although song selections were good, some tracks are disconnected from the scenes. Brie was really struggling to make the character believable.

Generally it was still a very entertaining movie to watch - and you wouldn't want to miss it because it has a lot puzzle pieces that will help complete MCU's Avengers Saga.

*****

It's a big win. But why do I feel like it's a lost. It is indeed an epic conclusion. A most depressing one.

Kala ko ba action-adventure film? E umpisa pa lang ng movie umiiyak na ko. Kahit labanan na naiyak pa din ako. Kahit may nag joke nakakaiyak pa din. Hanggang sa end credits may luha pa din mata ko. Di ako prepared. Mas matindi pa to sa peborit n'yong telenobela. Imagine mo 3 hours and 10 mins kayo nagpipigil ng luha. Ang sakit sa damdamin. Yun lang po masasabi ko. Nakatulong ba?
