Dairy Dash

I just enjoy Dash games. Not all are easy to finish though. Still not thru with Diner Dash 1 but anyway, here's another enjoyable dash game to play - Dairy Dash.

Full Description:
Ah, life on the farm - what could be more relaxing? Just about anything, according to the Smith family! Help these city slickers get a grip on the family farm as the entertaining hustle of the Diner Dash series goes pastoral. Care for cows, goats, chickens, and sheep while growing tomatoes, corn and pumpkins. You'll even enjoy the occasional glass of lemonade and fill an order or two for Flo! It's all in a day's work in Dairy Dash!

Game Features:
2 modes: Story and Endless Game.
52 levels of game play.
4 farm locations.
4 animal and 3 plant types.

Yahoo Users rate the game 4 out of 5 stars. I rate it 5 out of 5. It's got good graphics, it's not a very easy game to finish so it's pretty challenging plus it's got a lot of levels. I just finished it actually. Yay!

My Must Read Book List

I love Sophie Kinsella books. I immensedly enjoyed reading the Shopaholic series, Remember Me and Can You Keep A Secret so I can't wait to read this new book of hers. Although Paulo Coelho and Haruki Murakami books are great reads too, I think it's always nice to take a break from the heaviness and deepness of those two and writer Sophie Kinsella can give you that because her books are light to read and funny too.

I love love love mystery and conspiracy books so it's no surprise that The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown lands on my list of books I want to read. I've read all four books and I have to say that my fave one was Angels & Demons more than Da Vinci Code. This book hasn't been released yet but from what I've seen, you can already pre-order. I'm not planning to do so though. I'm just gonna wait until it hits the stores.

Okay this one is a must read recommendation from my boss who likes to read books as well... maybe even more than me. She says it's a good book, a delight to read. And with a movie version coming out in theaters which would star America's sweetheart, I'm even more curious to read it.

These are really just a couple of books I want to buy and read. I actually want to try to read a Haruki Murakami novel. "A" seems to like it. Plus I heard Ryan say it's good too. I saw these books at Powerbooks GB3 a couple of weeks ago actually. I almost bought it too. But I was able to resist. I still have a couple more books back home that I haven't read like Eclipse and Breaking Dawn - books that I went all out to look for and buy last year but I haven't even started on these, then there's this book given by my friend, Jem which title I forgot and Freakonomics, the one I borrowed from my boss. I've been so busy with school, with work, sometimes gimiks with friends, or watching DVD that I haven't gotten around to reading. Plus I've been too busy as well with my A - fixation that reading has taken a back seat... However, that's over and done with now. Time to focus on me, myself and I.

Breaking Free

After a hellish emotional week, I'm finally starting to feel good again. While at a friend's house somewhere in Tomas Morato, QC where I was pulling a supposed all nighter to finish a school requirement, I got to reflect on the recent events that have taken place in my life as I stayed up all night until the breaking dawn. I've come to realize that I had hit a road block and I haven't been making any way to find a new route, a detour, that will lead me back to my plan.

Yesterday, it has finally, finally, finally dawned on me that what I need to do. I need to break free from all the negativity. When something or someone is not helping you grow to be the best person you can be, then it's not worth keeping. So this is me, letting it all go - throwing all that pain, rejection, frustration, disappointment and anger out the window and letting the wind blow it all away.

I'm also throwing out the fear of the unknown, of stepping into unfamiliar territory without someone to hold my hand. It's about time to grow up and so I went and enrolled in subjects that I want to take up despite the fact that my new found friends might not be there. I will not return to the comfort zone no matter how nice it looks. I am breaking free, hence the song of my life right now is "Breaking Free".

Timezone and A Movie Review

Last night I was feeling sad again and had to seek out the comfort of friends to shake away the blues so I met up with Ryan and Jordan at G4. We grabbed a bite to eat first at Food Choices where I ordered the Slammers Burger Meal 2. Slammers are small burgers - delicious and cheap - and it reminded us of Harold and Kumar: White Castle movie. In case you didn't know, White Castle is a brand of burgers.

Afterwards, we headed to Timezone. Ryan's crush, Timezone guy was there too so imagine just how thrilled he was about it. He treated us - well I shelled out fifty bucks - on the games: Bishi Bashi which is like an old game there already considering we've been playing that since high school, Motorcycle - a race I never seem to win, Stackers - Ryan played this one, reminded me of Alex actually 'cos it used to be his favorite game there, and Trivia Quiz Game which I also lost to Ryan. We wanted to play Tekken but the place was filled, understandably because yesterday was the last day of school for the week - for most schools - since today is a holiday. But it was fun, fun, fun. If you've got the money to spend for it, go play at Timezone. It's perfect for destressing or shaking the blues away for almost all ages.

When I got home, I didn't turn in until about 3am. I watched Sex and the City rerun on Velvet channel first and then a bit of Shutter on Star Movies, Sweeney Todd on HBO and I Know Who Killed Me.

I Know Who Killed Me is a Lindsay Lohan movie - supposed to be a suspense of sort kind of movie. It got bad critic reviews and it flopped in the box office. It's probably the lowest selling movie of Lindsay Lohan. I don't think it was shown here in the theatres so when I saw that it was gonna play last night, I stayed up late to watch it. So what can I say? The critics were right. It was a very bad movie. Even Lilo's charm couldn't salvage that movie! No wonder it tanked. It was a dragging movie. It should have gone straight to DVD like her other movie, Labor Pains. Lindsay needs a new movie pronto - one that has a good story plot, a cute leading man (if it's a romcom) and a movie that will allow Lilo to show her acting skills.

Remembering John Hughes

I was only a baby when teen movies of the 80's equalled to one name: John Hughes. But I've read and heard about his famous movies and decided to give it a try. Turns out I'd love them! Well I haven't seen all his movies but those that I have seen, I immensely loved. Thanks to John Hughes', Molly Ringwald became the teen icon of the 80s.

So here are the two movies of John Hughes I've seen that stars Molly Ringwald and I definitely would recommend this as a must-have, must-watch chick flick.

Sixteen Candles:
Starring: Anthony Michael Hall as the geek, Molly Ringwald as Samantha Baker and Michael Schoeffling as Jake Ryan. So as the story goes, Sam has just turned 16 and her family has forgotten about it because her older sis was getting married! To top it off, she has a huge crush on senior hottie, Jake Ryan who was already hands off as he has a girlfriend who's also a senior and is equally hot as he was.

It's definitely kakakilig - I'm sure a lot of girls can relate to what Sam was going through - I mean imagine, that your crush whom you thought doesn't even know you exist actually has been noticing you and he likes you too! And then you get to spend your 16th birthday with him. Sweet!!

My favorite scene in the movie

Pretty in Pink.

Starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. In this story, the plot is that young Andie is one of the not-so-popular girls in high school. She usually hangs out with her friends Iona or Duckie. Duckie has always had a crush on her, but now she has met a new guy from school, Blane. He's one of the rich and popular guys but can the two worlds meet?

A little trivia: Jon Cryer's role was originally offered to Anthony Michael Hall (the geek from 16 candles) but he turned it down because he didn't want to play another geek role.
Another trivia: Before the release of this movie in public, the original plot was that Andie was gonna end up with Duckie.

I also thought this was kakakilig movie. And no, I don't say that for every romance movie. Duckie was absolutely adorable for a best friend that is. (",)

There are other John Hughes movies I haven't seen but I so want to... Thing is, it's not so easy to find. I would love to see St. Elmo's Fire and The Breakfast Club. Well.. I'll just have to wait until I finally find an available copy.

R.I.P John Hughes 1950-2009. Here's an article I found on about John Hughes and his movies. It's interesting.

Hannah Montana the movie

I just saw Hannah Montana the movie on DVD last night. I loved it overall. Don't like her leading man, they don't have chemistry at all. But I loved Miley's and Hannah's outfits - so chic. Oh and I loved the songs specially The Climb.

It's a good watch if you ask me. :-)

The Climb

The Start of Something New

Yes, the girl in green, aka Liz is back in the blogging world. Never truly disappeared, I just became more fond of microblogging - Twitter, and a bit of Tumblr. But blogging has called out to me again. It's my therapy - my cheaper form of therapy compared to shopping. Haha.

Since I've been gone for a while, here's a summary of what had gone on with my life since then:

Employment History: 3 jobs since I graduated from College. I love the current work I have though. Luckily, I've got two wonderful and intelligent superiors. Third time's the charm I guess.

Significant Changes I've Undertaken in my Life Lately:
1. Learned how to enjoy the company of one - namely myself. (Yes, this is a big step for me 'cos I've always loved having company)

2. Went back to school - graduate school that is.

Current Status: Single. Looking for love? Maybe.

Am back in the blogging world - a bit older than before.Welcome to my life. :-)
