The Walking Dead Season 2 Finale

Yesterday’s The Walking Dead Season 2 finale became the talk of the town, err… world! It has been reported that season 2 finale shattered its own record TV ratings. This TV series has caught my attention as soon as I was able to see its first edition via online streaming. I became addicted ever since. I have to set aside the other TV series I have been watching to give way and catch up with The Walking Dead.

Season 2’s episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner” made me cry and I will really miss Dale. That episode made me wish for Shane (Jon Bernthal) to exit as well. His character became so annoying and unpredictable.


I felt like my wish was granted on the episode “Better Angels” where Shane has pushed Rick (Andrew Lincoln) to his limits. Best friends no more, Rick had to fight back in defense of his family and the rest of the group. Shane used their search for Randall (Michael Zegen) as a ploy to kill Rick but karma was digital (LOL! I am not expecting to use this here) – Shane’s plan backfired at him. Carl (Chandler Riggs) had to put Shane down as soon as the latter became a zombie and tried attacking Rick. That bullet has put an end to Shane’s character but caught the attention of zombies …tons of them, in fact.

These are screen captures I made from The Walking Dead Season 2 streaming I watched just for this post. In the next photo, you’ll see Rick talking to his son, Carl while a herd of zombies are far behind approaching them.

The Walking Dead season 2’s finale was bloody as almost everyone has expected. Zombies were everywhere…this has been the episode with real zombie action. Hershel’s barn was burned down to distract the walkers and for the group to be able to escape. Hershel (Scott Wilson) bravely faced the zombies and was rescued by Rick. Jimmy (James McCune) and Patricia (Jane McNeill) were killed by the zombies as they tried to escape with the group. Andrea (Laurie Holden) rescued Carol (Melissa McBride) which unfortunately also caused for her to be separated from the group.

It was also in this episode where everyone learned about what Dr. Jenner (Noah Emmerich) whispered to Rick at the CDC – that everyone is infected, that no matter how you die, you will eventually turn into a zombie. Rick’s statements and actions became a surprise to everyone, as they weren’t expecting a Rick to be a tough dictator. The appearance of the hooded character (Michonne in the comic series) as it saved Andrea from a zombie attack in the woods was one of the highlights of the season finale too. The mysterious character came out of nowhere armed with a sword and has two armless walkers chained to waist. Michonne (Danai Gurira) is said to play a big role in the upcoming Season 3 of this TV series. She’s even said to be a favorite character in comic series.

In this finale, a lot of questions arise.

Are you gonna miss Shane?

What do you think of Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) as she’s reacted negatively after Rick admitted to have killed his best friend, apparently her boyfriend (ex, since Shane’s dead already =P).

What will happen to Andrea and Michonne? Will the two build an alliance?

I think the most appropriate question is, what lies ahead of the group?

 

These questions will find its answers by fall as we welcome season 3. Without a doubt, season 2 is a winner.

 

Barney Space Adventures in Manila

What more exciting for kids than to see Barney in a show, live!

My elder daughter grew up loving Barney and it goes the same with the younger one. Their adoration of Barney can easily be seen with all the VCDs and DVDs we have at home. It is from Barney they both learned the magic words, “Please” and “Thank You”. It was Barney and Mommy here of course who taught them the song “I Love You, You Love Me”. We have seen recorded Barney show in DVD format but not a live one yet. My elder daughter got to experience Disney On Ice show few years back and so as got the chance to see Dora The Explorer’s show at the Aliw Theater too. Now that there’s two of them, and both saw the ad for Barney Space Adventure show here in Manila, they both wanted to go! Having seen shows like this before, I already have an idea on how much a ticket would cost. I will definitely have to save up for me to get a ticket … I mean, tickets for the 3 of us. Minus the husband – knowing him, he’s not going to join us for sure. I have searched the net for the ticket cost and the details of the show itself as well. Here’s what I have got:

The show will be held at the ALIW Theater at the CCP Complex in Pasay City. The show will run from April 26 to April 29. If I will have to get 3 tickets for the “Price Zone 3”, I should prepare almost 5K. I still have enough time though and if this show will make my kids so happy, I will give it to them. I am sure that for these little kids, this is a once in a lifetime experience.

SKIN: Keep It Young

I haven”t faced a full body mirror for sometime now but when I passed by a boutique with a wall mirror, I somehow felt dismayed. When I got home, I decided to really take a good look at myself in front of the mirror.  I was in disbelief that my skin looks older than they are. I look older than I am. To add, I bumped into a co-parent one time and after few minutes of talking to her, she exclaimed that she thought we are of the same age. But hey! I am in fact 7 years younger than her.

I have realized that stress and irresponsibility has a big cause in losing that “beauty”…that “glow”. As it has been said, age is just a number but if its seen in your skin, then it”s a problem! My skin has aged and even if I have a jar of anti-aging cream if I am not responsible enough to use it religiously, then nothing will really happen. Aside from the wrinkles and crow”s feet, there were tiny scars and pimples present. Not to mention the Black & White heads that anyone would want to squeeze out. I have browsed  for skin care products and tips on how to take care of it too and I came across TANDA and saw this:

www.tanda.com
We Filipinos all know the word “tanda”…that it means age or ageing. This is really an enlightenment for me. I have a really oily skin ever since and would always wash my face to get rid of the dirt and oil..see in that above image? It says there that there are 400 millions of bacteria in an oily skin! In my face! Innovations like these is really of great help, especially to moms like me. As we age, we really can”t help but feel and see it through the eyes or the skin. Products as such will help us not just take care of our skin but also improve our self confidence if not completely bring it back. And, now that it”s summer here, it is also best to drink plenty of water and apply skin care products that will protect us from the harmful effects of UV rays. Age is something unavoidable, the best way to deal with it is to live it – clean, tone, moisturize, exfoliate, exercise – keep it young & healthy!
