Aki Updates and a Movie

Today is a non-working Holiday in the Philippines, so my hoomans and I were able to spend an extra day together.

First off, a little segway.

My hoomans got to watch the new vampire-human love story movie, Twilight last Friday.

It was a full movie house and they had really bad seats (i.e. 3rd row). But nevertheless, they liked the movie a lot, mainly because they had nary a background nor the slightest idea what to expect and who the actors were. It also helped that the crowd was quite cheery and swooned.. hahaha... I bet, seeing me would make them swoon even more!

Manang browsed over a few reviews after watching it and learned that it was a book adaptation- duh! wasn't that the premise of the movie?

"we'll sue me, Aki! I haven't been to the movie theatre for months."

Whatever, human.

Oh yeah, and there's supposed to be a 2nd part. We'll I guess, they'll be watching out for that and maybe, just maybe and for curiousity's sake, try to scavange for that book on account of the numerous good reviews we've heard about it (i.e. the book series).

Just a little caveat to those who intend to watch it though: It is a love story, okay? so don't you expect gory, bloody scenes in there.

Okay, for more important announcements.

Related to their mall visit last Friday, manang passed by the shopping center and brought some gifts for our friends. They also managed to finish our cards (teaser picture below) and we will hopefully be mailing them tomorrow. *whew!!*

I sure do hope they'll arrive at our friend's mail boxes before Christmas or someone will surely get the evil eye from me. .. BOL..

And finally....

Today, is officially the start of the Christmas season!

24 more days to go and it will soon be Christmas!!!!


Have you puppies checked if you are in Santa Paws, good puppy list?

Ooh...Mom caught that movie too last weekend! She said it's quite good, but didn't really like the slow pace in the beginning. She said she liked the main actor though (the guy who played Edward Cullen)...*smirks* Did you know he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie?

That's great that you have finished your cards, Aki! We've also only recently sent our cards,so hopefully it'll reach everybody soon! *crosses paws*

Hope you had a great weekend!

You are one of the cutest labs I've ever seen and almost all the dogs in my USA neighborhood are labs. You have such earnest eyes.

Oh Aki I have been a good puppy... wait a minute... is that even possible? BOL!!!

If by good puppy you mean I destroyed everything in my path until all my little puppy teeth fell out, then YES I was a good puppy! BOL!!!

My mom needs to see that movie. EVERYONE has been raving about it!
