Movie: Bad Genius (2017)

[ random movie time ] Bad Genius is an unexpected treat. I highly recommend it. This is the first Thai movie I’ve ever watched, and the quality is way beyond what we usually produce here in the PH. It makes me want to get on the Thai movie/drama train.

Why I love deconstruction

Tired of reading about cardiology, or the world, or life in general? Here’s a post on deconstruction as it applies to fanfiction, gender debates, politics and even medicine.

“Really, I like deconstruction because it basically goes wild with everything and anything. Because we define by différance, constructions and their manifestations can be as endless, limitless and as justifiable as you want it to be.”  

Movie: Thor Ragnarok (2017)

[ random movie time ] I’m on a roll with this review thing! I will fight anyone who says Thor is a flat character, including my past self from three hours ago (before I watched the movie, how things change). I absolutely love Thor, both the movie and the character! Some people might say it was…

I understand why it’s a grade A movie. Even though the three hours away from…

these rare weekends

In the fast-paced life of a grad student –or indeed, of any adult– weekends are the holy grail, coveted and kind of magical.

Thinking about nothing particular awhile ago, then I remembered how mad I am at the Star Trek Reboot (AOS) for failing to live up to its potential as a series. Don’t get me wrong –I love AOS, but it could have done a lot more as a successor to TOS, and /to boldly go where…

A continuation of my ktrash life 😭 Now with more Bangtan Boys.

manila adventures pt 2

manila adventures pt 2 is the spiritual sequel to my post Four Hours in Manila, which featured me walking around Luneta Park, the National Library, and more. I also had a blog post on my tour of the Museum of the Filipino People with my sister (though to be honest I think I’ve been to…
