Maryland
by Vonda Shepard



       This is an old song by Vonda Shepard, a sound track from Ally Mcbeal the TV series that aired from  September 1997 to May 2002.

         Yeah I remember those days when I have time to watch television.

       Anyway, this is one of my favorites by Vonda because I kinda relate to it. In the song you will find the words:

       This is a song that reminds me that I shouldn't let the pursuit of my dreams suck the life out of me hehe. I really tend to overwork and  overthink  how to achieve things in the soonest time possible.

       So to my readers who have been working too hard, I invite you to sit back and relax and listen to this beautiful song.

The Bohemian Diet:
Breakfast Buffet at Somethin' Fishy


     If you are feeling hungry and happen to be around Eastwood sometime between midnight and 10 AM, then Somethin' Fishy is the place to go. My friends and I drove about 30 kms to try this out hehe.

     Your Php 178 can give you all that your tummy can  handle (beverages are ordered separately). Cheap huh? But the food does NOT taste cheap at all.  The variety of dishes is enough to satisfy your eclectic appetite. You want Pinoy breakfast? Chinese or American? Well they got it  right here. 

      Delicious, healthy and affordable - that's the bohemian diet. So I'm giving my two thumbs up for Somethin' Fishy breakfast buffet. ^_^

      Thanks to Thryke and Chogie for the pics!

         I saw Man of Steel last night with friends. Real awesome if you ask me. I like the costume, the actor who played Superman ( Henry Cavill ); the special effects, his fights against opponents of equal strength; and most especially those scenes on planet Krypton, giving us a glimpse of its environment,  and the culture and technology of the Kryptonians.

      It really is a must-see movie even if you are not a big fan of Superman or any DC or Marvel character like  I am. I never get to develop an interest in reading superhero comics when I was a kid. But I did watch those stiff cartoons back in the 80's hehe.

      Superman the character was created by two American high school students in 1933 and they sold it to DC Comics 6 years after. And there had been 7 Superman movies already so we pretty much know about the story of this flying red-caped man with an S on his chest. ( It's not an S )

      So, what's so special about this 8th film? Well in my opinion, never has there been a movie where he looked so convincingly real - as a struggling human and an invulnerable alien. Yeah...

        But I still think Christopher Reeve has the perfect face and build for Superman. ^_^

Fully Booked Opens
at Alabang Town Center


        Finally, Fully Booked opens at Alabang Town Center with it's own 4-storey building. That's good news for you book lovers here in the South of the Metro. 

          It's rare that I buy reading material hehe. Nonetheless I have a new cozy place to browse through unsealed books and store ideas in my memory bank. That's the bohemian way hehe. You'll usually find me in the art and design sections of course. ^_^

     At home I was clearing the terrace of junk and I found  this old Betamax player. 

      The metal parts have gone rusty and it looks quite interesting so I took a photo of it. I did't throw it away. Maybe I can use the parts for assemblage art.

    Betamax video players was first released in Japan by Sony in 1975 (the year I was born). The last of its kind was produced in 2002 - just a little trivia. ^_^

      Cool huh? These Rasta tank tops are made of jersey type fabric which my friend provided for this printing project. He's gonna sell them in his reggae apparel store in Starmall, Mandaluyong City. 

     I agreed to print my Zion 1930 design on some of them. Looks good. I wish I also have printed tank tops for sale. But I'd like mine to be single colored cotton-polyerster. Well who knows? Maybe someday I would find a supplier.
