My 100

Chai and I watched 100 (Chris Martinez, 2008 ) at Galleria last weekend. In 100 Mylene Dizon played Joyce, a young woman living it up and then finding herself having to let go of everything because she is dying. Giving Joyce her unwavering love and support is her best friend Ruby (Eugene Domingo). Together Joyce and Ruby and later in the film, Joyce’s mom (Tessie Tomas) and nephew, made a list of things to do, places to be, and people to find/spend time with.

I missed 100 in Cinemalaya, and I have to thank Jegs for giving me the heads up on its cinema run. I am glad that I saw the film with Chai. After watching it, we made a pact to push on with our plans which include starting our own business and going on a tour. I know that we still have a lot of saving to do, and since we are not running against time (only weakening limbs), we can actually list down more than a hundred. Here is a partial list of my 100, and just maybe, I get to write an individual post about each of these:

  1. Wow, great idea! Makes me want to make my own 100 list. 🙂 I do have a list — 50 things to do before I turn 50. You can list down all of the things you want to do before your 50th birthday, and you can even go beyond 50 things. Then you get to mark your milestones as well.:)

    1. I saw your list and wow, you have completed quite a number already. Sugoi! You gave me ideas for the remaining 27 🙂 It was fun making a list, and another great thing about making it public is that people actually help to achieve them.

    1. I know Mylene won best actress in Cinemalaya; I am not sure about PIFF though. What I am sure of is that the film won Audience Award and $25,000 for director Chris Martinez at PIFF.
