They don't make kids movies like they used to...

I've been watching a lot of the HD channels on Sky lately. They've been showing The Mighty Ducks on FOX Family Movies the past couple of days and it got me thinking that kids these days don't get these types of movies anymore.

The Mighty Ducks was a movie that shaped a lot of childhoods. It was a hockey movie about these kids who were underdogs/misfits and ended up winning. Emilio Estevez was Coach Gordon Bombay and Joshua Jackson (Pacey from Dawson's Creek and Peter Bishop from Fringe) was the awesome Charlie Conway! Everyone my age knows who Charlie Conway is! Rollerblading became a hit because of The Mighty Ducks! (No hockey except in the old Megamall ice skating rink)

I guess what I'm trying to say is that there aren't any kids movies that show values of friendship, teamwork, fair play, and rising above the challenge. What do kids get these days? You have Ice Age 4 and Madagascar 3 coming up... Seriously? Disney, I believe needs to bring back all these kids movies/ pre-teen movies.

Remember the 3 Ninjas? The Little Giants? Stand by me? I feel bad for the kids these days... Those were the movies that made you want to play outside the house. Maybe I'm getting too old... What do you think?

I'm a HUGE fan of chicken! Chicken, Chicken, Chicken any day! My favorite part are the wings and I just love buffalo wings. But there's this chicken that caught my attention. My brother was telling me about this chicken that was the #1 chicken in America. Chicken BON CHON.

So us bros had to try it! PANALO! Whenever it's just the 2 of us at home. When our parents are busy or out of town, 100% Chicken BON CHON ang food sa bahay! I'll just get a text from him, "Kuya, Mom and Dad have to attend a dinner, Bon Chon!" and I reply "It's ON!"

It's salty-sweet and the crispiness is just awesome! The mix of flavors in the mouth is fantastic! I just loooooove the chicken from Bon Chon! YOU HAVE TO GET THE WINGS! Soy Garlic FOR THE WIN! I tried the spicy, can't handle it... Sorry!

Haven't tried it yet? GO GO GO!!!

There are loads of stores! Libis, Robinsons Galleria, Megamall, Alabang Town Center, Greenbelt 1, Greenhills Promenade, Katipunan, Shangri-La, etc.

Check out their site at

You won't regret it!

Decisions Decisions

It's that time of the year again. It's graduation season. I remember that feeling of uncertainty after school. What would happen next? What's life after school? Do you rest or do you hit the ground running?

I'll tell you what happened 5 years ago. I was both happy and sad finishing school. Happy that I didn't have any more tests or projects but I was sad leaving the school I was in for 16 years. I was sad about not being able to see most of the people on a daily basis. I would miss my friends plus that feeling of no pressure. I was about to enter the real world. 

My Lola was still alive back then and believe it or not, apart from my parents, she really pushed me to go find work right away. There was no time to wait or rest. You need to stay ahead of the pack. I was pressured. I graduated March and I was at work by May. I only had a couple of weeks rest but looking back, I'm very thankful for my Lola and parents pressuring me. I'm happily still working with the company I started in almost 5 years ago. 

To those who are about to graduate, take it from me. Hit the ground running. Stay ahead of the pack. Laziness is not an option. Work is a lot different from school but you actually still learn and become a better person. Congratulations and welcome to the real world. Keep on running...
