MRT - Misty Railway Transit

There is something new in the MRT North Avenue station (not sure, however, if all the stations have it.) Misty blowers that, at first, I thought was something like in the movies when a pipe gets a hole and releases poisonous gas. But, when I took a closer glance, they were really built-in tiny sprayers to emit mists.

I still am not sure if they are mists to keep the station cool, but it seems like it. Wasn't able to check the news last night, so maybe tonight it will be one of the headlines. 

In all fairness, at first, I was worried, then I looked around they were everywhere, then I thought... "Cool..." Albeit, I didn't feel it, anyway, I hope it helps.

Look! This is the Metro PH

Finally, I reached this part of the metro where I can see where I was. I can now say, "almost there." I wish someday one of the top management or govt officials will experience this and when I see him/her I'mma say hi and ask: "So, how's it goin'?" 

Look! This is the Metro PH. And I still hope...

A Date with Scarlett Johansson

Finally got a chance to date THE beautiful Scarlett Johansson! The first time I saw its trailer, I got so excited and interested. Let me just give a little review about it. Don't worry, I am not a spoiler, so I will be very careful here. ;)

The storyline is so intriguing. The story is intense and I think whoever thought and created this film is a genius. Although I am not a believer of the evolution and the big bang theory (since they were somewhat introduced in the movie) I really admire the conceptualization and ingenuity of the story. 

I love science, and I guess that's one of the main reasons why I got so into it. The acting of Ms. Scarlett Johansson is just superb! I have to admit that I'm seeing some Agent Romanoff's scene when she was being interrogated by the Russian Mafia in The Avengers movie. But her acting prowess in this movie is very impressive - specially her scene when the drugs finally take its effect in her body. 

That said, I just want to point out that some of the scenes in the movie towards the end kind of disappointed me, in which it was very obvious that they were indeed just shot in a big green screen, specially during a scene when everything turned white. Well, I was hoping that they should have done better in editing or filming it so it won't appear as noticeable. 

But to cap it off, the movie is fantastic. If, at this point, you're still thinking of watching it or not, I suggest you go buy those tickets and head to the big screen. You won't regret spending some bucks and time for it. If you're not as technical as I was, you won't even get to notice what I just said about the CG. (no copyright infringement intended)

I always take notes when watching a movie, but I was not able to write down as exactly how it was said in the movie but there was a quote that goes like this: People desire power and authority that result to chaos and destruction... Same as ignorance.
