In Books, January 2013 by Sasha & The Silverfish on Jan 30, 2013I seem to be behaving, thus far, this 2013, when it comes to amassing books.

The Bourne Legacy: Movie Review by Reel Advice on Aug 9, 2012It's finally here - the movie every Filipino has been waiting for the past half year. No thanks to a very "wise" decision by Tony Gilroy to shoot it here on-site in Manila and El Nido. But success cannot be defined by publicity alone especially on a...
