Mario Maurer

The Mario Maurer Encounter

It’s really nice to write a blog entry every now and then. It’s a good way to de-stress after a long week. Let me share one of the priceless event of my life. Okay, that might sound overrated, but yeah, really, one of those priceless times.

Thank you Mario Maurer for making my December happy just by seeing you live at the airport. And I would also like to thank you as well for saying Hi from afar. From your beloved die hard fan, Pau. That’s me!

See you again in the Philippines, soon! 🙂

Oh, Mario Maurer!

There’s a new addition on my celebrity winners. By the term winners, I mean that I love them. Ok fine, they’re my “some-sort of celebrity crush” (I wished to refuse the usage of the word crush because it’s too juvenile and cheesy. But obviously I failed on my objective). Maybe some of you would say: “Why the hell will I care about your crushes?” I say: “Hello? You need to know this to check if I will be your greatest nemesis on your idol or not.” – Fine, I just want to share this. Double fail.

So I tried searching for other movies featuring that good-looking boy in “The Love of Siam” (a Thai gay-themed movie). I didn’t know his name at first but then Google is there to help me. Finally I got his name: Mario Maurer. Search it if you like, but please make sure you have your tissues to help you on your “drooling time”.

After getting his name, I was able to find another movie which features him also as a lead actor. It’s a rom-com movie this time. The flick is titled “A Little Thing Called Love” (First Love). After watching the film the second time, I officially announce that Mario Maurer is included on my celebrity winners‘ list. Still wondering how good-looking he is? Here (all photos grabbed from Google images).

Alright, that’s it. I am off! I know some of you will be searching for his movies now. I won’t keep you reading this blog entry. Go and search Mario Maurer.

Love of Siam

One film down from my Thai movies wish list! Yey!

I enjoyed watching The Love of Siam – Enjoyed in the sense that it never got me bored even for a single scene. Sounds very ordinary? Not until you find out that this movie runs for almost 3 hours. Yes, 3 hours.

Most comments I encountered while researching the plot of the film is about homosexuality. Actually, even the trailer got me that notion on what to expect with the film. And then, all changed after watching the movie. It’s not really all about homosexuality. The film is about love, different forms of it, the hope it provides, and how it affects one’s life.

Yes, it might sound so cheesy, but let’s just say I am ready to go on a bet to prove everyone that this movie can really touch your heart. If you would think about it, the situations shown on the film are quite normal – nothing special in other words. However, how these normal situations and stories of each character are sewn together translates to something phenomenal. Phenomenal in the sense that it will let you feel for the characters, and left you reflecting on your life.

As I am watching the film, I feel very helpless in stopping my tears to fall down (Yuck, I know). I just can’t help myself feeling the emotions, frustrations and the love given and lost by the characters. It was one of the best movies I have ever seen. Proof? Well, I don’t really enjoy films that has subtitles, plus a film that is very long. I even have this philosophy that long movies don’t necessarily translate to a good film; it is how the story is executed. And, here I am, found myself glued to my laptop watching The Love of Siam.

Alright. For the record, I obviously loved the movie – I am even making it one of the best I have ever watched. It is definitely something worth the 3-hours of watching. But please don’t watch this film if you are looking for a feel-good movie, because plainly it is not. This movie is best to watch if you want to have an emo moment, or you just want to watch a good heart-warming film.
