It was the premier night of the movie Tanging Pamilya at SM megamall Cinema 10, starring Toni Gonzaga, Sam Milby, Erap Estrada and Ai Ai delas Alas, with the special participation of Mommy Dionesia (Pacquiao’s famous mom). It was my first time to attend a premier night. It was standing room only , fans, security people, big muscle men, movie and TV reporters . But I failed to see movie stars.

Well anyway, I enjoyed the movie for it was fun and it kept me laughing, The antics and pun might be recycled stuff but it still kept me glued to watch it till the end. It was a love comedy story and a dash of action with the fight scenes of Erap. As in his old movies are like that, as I watched him when I was a kid. His Chuck Taylor rubber shoes, even in Barong Tagalog, wrist band, but where was his hand towel, which is always on his neck?

Toni was her usual self, I liked the way she acted, so natural and cool. Ai Ai was at her best as a natural comedianne, she did not fail in being the martyr wife of Erap, and a cool mom to her kids. Sam Milby delivered comedy and drama lines, his Tagalog needs more practice. Mommy Dionesia was also in the movie in the latter part. The Ai Ai and Mommy Dionesia Dance Showdown was  the best part of the movie.

Some of the dialogues were taken from different tele-serye program.It might not be an award-winning movie, but I did enjoy it. I want more movies to entertain me, make feel light after and not those movies that I have to think about after watching.

I am looking forward to the December 2009 Metro Manila Film festival. I am a fan !

I grew up in a family who loves to cook, my lola a certified cusinera and my Dad a Kapangpangan who can dish out anything. I use to attend “handaan” wherein my lola was the cook. I never got tired of watching her prepare morcon , and pastel both prepared with cheese.Everything then was prepared the natural way, all ingredients have to be fresh and of the first class quality. My dad was the one who introduced to me the use of cookbooks and how to experiment on some ingredients. I might not have the time to cook but I can do any common dish.
