Shutter Island Movie and more

Last night, I was not able to make a blog post and to upload the Poll for the Wonderful Contest as well.  The reason?  We watch “Shutter Island” on DVD, yes, I know the screening of the movie will be on April 14 and “Yes” we had watch it in the comfort of our own living room.

I have been a huge fan of Leonardo DiCaprio on my early teen years.  Who would not fall in love with this unforgettable hunk although some of my friends will still insists that he looks like a (gay) *hmp. LOL.  I even had a huge poster of him on my room (of course – beside my  Keanu Reeves poster wearing levis jeans on his early modelling career).

I do remember winning that poster on a contest I have joined on my high school days – it includes a poster, a notebook, stationary and a ballpen ) yes all with Leonardo DiCaprio’s picture on it.  (So sad, I could not remember where it was now,  when I moved out from our house, that was one of my things that I forgot to bring) . (But hubby can attest on that poster, i even bring the poster of Keanu Reeves on my boarding house)LOL and of course, he made me put it away when he saw it. (LOL)

I have watch many of Leo’s movies, among them are “This boy’s Life “, Romeo and Juliet, Marvin’s Room,  Titanic, The Man in the Iron Mask, The Beach, Catch me if you can, The Aviator, Blood Diamond, The Departed, “The 11th Hour, Body of Lies, his recent movies including  Revolutionary Road and now Shutter Island.  (well, it  just happen that I also like his acting).

Leo even produced some movies:

2004 The Assassination of Richard Nixon Executive producer
The Aviator Executive producer
2007 The 11th Hour Producer
Gardener of Eden Producer
2008 Greensburg Producer
2009 Atari Producer

Shutter Island was really a great movie and Martin Scorsese was one of the greatest director this world can have and Dennis Lehane, the author of the book with the same name was really unbelievable.  I would really recommend that you watch this movie but just a precaution, have a handy water beside you because you will be losing some breath along the way. LOL

So, here’s my story:

It’s really been a dream for me and Mel to go to Palawan. We were so lucky that our plan was able to push through last May, 2009. It has many first for Peachy and a very unforgettable experience for our family considering that I will be reunited with my long lost biological mother.  Our arrival on Puerto Princesa’s airport was greeted by an unexpected heavy rain which was really very unusual considering that there are no announcements of any typhoon or rains. Luckily the sky was clear on the following day.

On Mother’s Day we celebrate the day with a City Tour, visiting the crocodile farm, butterfly garden and drop by at  Baker’s hill where we ate the famous and delicious Hopia.  They had a variety of delicious breads and cakes to choose from at a very affordable price. It was already getting dark, that’s why we were not able to go to Mitra Ranch. The following day was all excitement, we went island hopping and had the best experience in our life. We stay at Snake Island and it’s my first time to experience snorkeling. We also saw various corals and many different fishes that you cannot see just elsewhere.

Puerto Princesa is a city with many things to offer. There are many places to visit and the time was not enough for us to visit all of them. We decided not to go to the Underground River for two reasons. Although we already had our permit to go, we learned that there is an ongoing hike for life and the place were crowded with many hikers coming from different places, another thing is that we were a bit worried about the safety of Peachy, because we could not bring her inside the cave and we will just leave her on the sea shore. I really have big doubts over the idea of leaving her. Puerto Princesa is a place which offers fresh and great tasting foods, inexpensive sea foods and dining out is really great in this place of town. We are so thankful that God gave us sunny days to enjoy our vacation.

Palawan is a great place with its beautiful scenic and serene views and friendly person. Surely, you will have a very memorable experience just like our family had and you can’t wait for your next visit. Discover the beautiful island of Palawan and see for yourself the amazing wonders.
