Hi guys!How's life? I've been busy for the past few weeks...but I really missed being here!So how's your blog life?
Anyways, vacation is over and we have to get back to reality again...What happened to your vacation?As for us, we (my family) just stayed home and enjoyed each others company...

Last April 8, we celebrated Miszha's 11th month, as usual we went to mall to buy some stuffs but unfortunately, we do not have any cake for her...It's because Red Ribbon and Goldilocks did not bake much cake for that day because the malls (Robinsons Novaliches and SM Fairview) will be closed for two days for the Lenten Season...But of course, we still manage to celebrate it even without cake...

A movie to watch....
Last last night, my cousin and I watched movie entitled "Monalisa's Smile", I thought the movie sucks but I was wrong...The movie was great!

Mona Lisa Smile tells the story of Katherine Ann Watson(Ms. Julia Roberts), a feminist teacher who studied at UCLA graduate school and left as a first-year teacher from "Oakland State" University (thought to be a fictionalized University of California, Berkeley), leaves her boyfriend behind in Los Angeles, California in 1953, to teach at Wellesley College, a conservative women's private liberal arts college in Massachusetts, United States.

Watson tries to open her students' minds to their freedom to do whatever they want with their
lives. She encourages her students to believe in themselves, to study to become career professionals, and to improve their economic futures. She uses her art teachings as a vehicle to put across her opinion to the young women that her students need not conform to stereotypes of women made by society, or the roles made for them by society, as women born to become housewives and mothers. She feels that women could do more things in life than solely adopt the roles of wives and mothers. In one scene of the movie, she shows her students four newspaper ads, and asks them to question what the future will think of the idea that women are born into the roles of wives and mothers.

Watson's ideas and ways of teaching are contrary to methods deemed acceptable by the school's directors, conservative women who believe firmly that Watson should not use her class to express her points of views or befriend students, and should stick only to teaching art. Watson is warned that she could lose her job if she continues to interact with students as she has been doing.

Undaunted, Watson becomes stronger in her speeches about feminism and the future of women. She is a firm believer that the outlook of women in society needed to be changed if women were to achieve better futures, and that she needs to instill a spirit of change among her students.
Watson chooses to leave after the one year, but, as she is leaving the campus for the last time, her students run after her car, to show their affection and to thank her for her lessons.

I really love Julia Roberts that I bought a dvd collection of her movie!

That's all for now folks..hope you got a nice vacation!love you guys!blog hope soon!
