Hachi

Posted on: August 13, 2009

This just broke my heart.

Hachi is an Akita owned by a Japanese Professor. Every morning, he would watch his master leave for work from the front door, then wait for him at the train station when he comes home. One night, the professor was not on the train–he had suffered a stroke and never made it home.

For 10 years, Hachi continued to wait for him, every night at the train station, until his own death.

This dog’s loyalty amazes me. I’m watching this movie, even if it means I’ll be crying my eyes out in the moviehouse. Trailer pa lang, naiiyak na ko, hehehe.

You can watch the English trailer here.

I LOVE Photobooths, but this one’s the best of them all. 😀

I tried Wordle on my blog. Here’s what came out.

Ever since we saw the flying house tied to balloons almost a year ago, the boyfriend and I have anticipated Disney-Pixar’s movie, Up. We even planned to push our trip to Alaminos by a few hours so we can watch the first screening on May 29. Much to our dismay, the movie was released all over the world, but not here. WTF.

Carl Fredricksen tied hundreds of balloons to his house to make it fly to South America.

When we came back from the province, we were both dying to watch the movie. Especially because some friends have raved about seeing it online already. Thanks to pirated DVDs, we got to watch it. Hee. Malabo, pero pwede na. That’s how addicted we are to the movie.

The verdict? The movie was excellent. Our long wait was worth it.

We left for Alaminos last Friday and came back this Tuesday. I brought home some Alaminos longganisa, plenty of photos and these thoughts.

10. When everyone is speaking in Pangalatok around you, and you can’t understand a single word, you can’t help but feel a bit out of place. And out of sorts. The boyfriend cheered me up and told me not to feel bad. Anyway if things work out, I might end up speaking (or, at least, understanding) the language. LOL.

If things work out, I'll understand everything they talk about. Hee.

So, hello rainy season. 🙂

I’ve been looking for this sort-of manifesto for years. One of my college professors sent it through e-mail, and I accidentally deleted it. I found it again at this site. Well, I edited it a bit.

  • Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that’s not meant to be. Be who you are, know what you want.
  • Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy. Will he do the same?
  • If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t “be friends.”
  • A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend. Don’t settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
  • Don’t stay because you think “it will get better.” You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
  • The only person you can control in a relationship is you. Submit only when you get married.
  • Avoid men who’ve got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant why would he treat you any differently?
