Stop writing, stop writing, I left my head on the dance floor…

Goodnight my darling!

My friends call me ‘masa’ – masandal tulog! I can go on and on without sleep but when I do, you will have a hard time waking me up!

But I also have my own share of sleepless nights. My solution to that is soft music. Those songs from the 60s and 70s really can make me calm and restful and eventually asleep.

Of all the ‘lullaby’ songs I love, this one that was used by a Baygon commercial in the 80s is my most favorite.

Allow me to share this with you and hopefully we do not get to fall asleep on our office desks!

Have I shared before how much I just love the rain? For some, rain gives them the gloom, for me, it gives me the pure happiness as the cold wind touches my skin, as the raindrops fall on the roof, as the water refreshes the earth…

A night after Basyang left trees uprooted in Manila and me sleepless, I just couldn’t find the urge to go to bed yet. With James happily asleep beside me, I turned on the TV and watched Shanghai on DVD.

Shanghai is a movie starring big stars like John Cussack, Ken Watanabe, Chow Yun-Fat and Gong Li. It was set in the 1940s Shanghai, shortly before the Japanese declared war on the United States by bombing the Pearl Harbor.

John played the role of a spy and worked as a pro-German journalist in Shanghai. His main goal is to find out who killed his bestfriend whose role was played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. During his stay and investigation, his life intertwined with those of Mr. and Mrs. Lanting, a Chinese Mafia couple well-played by Chow Yun-Fat and Gong Li, respectively, and with Japanese Captain Tanaka, played by Ken Watanabe. Each character hid a secret that will keep you guessing until the end.

The story was about espionage, betrayal, murder, but most of all, love. Yes, that is the surprise. Love at one of its most trying circumstances – love during the war. While watching the film, it was moving to have felt the emotions shown by the characters – by the patriotism of Mrs. Lanting, by the unconditional love of Mr. Lanting, by the devotion of John and the hidden persona of Ken.

I do not think the movie was shown in cinemas here in the Philippines but if it did, it would surely earn a respectable share of movie income. The movie boasts of a fabulous cast and it was able to deliver. It would surely be a movie worth seeing and remembering.

At the end of the movie, one question can be asked : how far would you go to protect the one you love?

My answer : far enough to ensure his safety…and happiness.
