Last week, I gave myself a big pat on the back for having reached my Goodreads challenge 2012 to read 20 books. And it’s only October! hence, I’m pushing for ten more. Oh, the thrill of reading! I’m just amused with the selection I’ve read so far this year because I truly think that they …

Broadway: JERSEY BOYS

This has been long overdue for me and my friends, but just last week we finally saw the Tony award winning musical, Jersey Boys. I was with a smile the entire show, it really was very entertaining. Even if you’re not familiar with their music, just the beat and the happy vibe of the musical …

Obsessed: The Newsroom

Suddenly it’s Christmas! Not only is Breaking Bad back on its final season, but  another awesome series is keeping me glued to the telly on sunday nights. From the brilliant mind of Aaron Sorkin, The Newsroom is just as intense as it is freaking compelling! Obviously thought provoking, it tackles on mostly political issues that shaped current …

ONCE

One of the very best things to do in New York City is to watch a Broadway show. NYC’s theatre district is the mecca of everything and anything Broadway. And once you find someone who loves Broadway as much as you do, hold on to that someone. Because not everyone will love it. 2 hours …

TO ROME WITH LOVE

Woody Allen, in my opinion, is dysfunctional and creepy. Yet, I like his movies. Apart from his revolting personal relationship, he’s undeniably a gifted writer and director. Having seen Annie Hall, 3 times and  Midnight in Paris, approximately 10 times, it’s clear that I’m a fan of his work. It’s been noted that he makes …

UNBROKEN

You know you’ve read a damn great book, if after a week, you’re still thinking about it. Such is the case with Unbroken. How do I start? Louie Zamperini is the heart and soul of this compelling non fiction. His story is heartbreaking yet outstandingly inspiring. It’s a beautiful story of hope, resilience and redemption. …

Broadway: SPIDER-MAN

A month ago, my friends and I went to see Spiderman: Turn off the dark, the musical. It wasn’t really our first choice, my friends wanted to see The Lionking, and I wanted to see Once, but since I saw the former already, we decided on Spiderman. If you recall, it garnered a ton of …

Movie Review: The Hunger Games

I have given this review enough time for everyone to calm down, for the moment to pass when everybody was fresh from the theaters with varying opinions and the movie was trending in just about everywhere. So here’s my two cents worth: I enjoyed the movie. I think it fairly stayed faithful to the book. …

Book Review: The Hunger Games

I really wish that I didn’t wait this long to read the trilogy. I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t have plans at all to read the series because of my judgmental and silly assumptions that it was just another twilight series and that it was too YA for my taste. I now cringed in …

CAVALIA

I’m blogging about Cavalia because I seriously enjoyed this show. It was amazing and absolutely breathtaking! The show is only in Washington for a couple of weeks, so we were very fortunate to have scored tickets on their second to the last performance, as they are always sold out. Cavalia is an extremely enticing  and …
