Lunch at Krung Thai

Krung Thai has been for years one of my favorite restos here in the metropolis. Tucked away beside the public market in Sta. Elena, Marikina (corner of W. Paz and and M. Cruz Streets), this small resto is one of the best in terms of value for money. Went there last November 17 with a good friend and we had a hearty lunch to top our catching up with one another.

I have 500 reasons to love this film

This review from Rolling Stone magazine: "Boy meets girl, boy loses girl. It's been done to emo death. That's why the sublimely smart-sexy-joyful-sad (500) Days of Summer hits you like a blast of pure romantic oxygen."

You know what they say about pics telling a story...

I was a fan of PULP when it first came out. It was a music magazine that was larger than life. I bought it every month, read them, and bagged them. But after a bit, I thought that the photography overtook the writing. I didn't want to compare but I eventually did. The feature stories well, didn't resonate well with me. So I stopped. I would pick up the odd issue when something struck my fancy. So when I heard of this book -- a book of the best photos of the first 10 years of the magazine, I had to pick it up. Honestly, I love it. Sadly though, for a music mag, I remember them more for the pics than any of the writing.
