Sa The Lake House, a particulare correspondence between the characters played by Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves begins with: “We’ve never talked about our favorite things.”

People don’t really talk about their favorite things. Usually they crop up during mundane situations while we’re experiencing a favorite thing. And we usually state like it’s not really important. “Favorite ko talaga iced tea ng Don Hen.” But these are our favorite things.

Tama nga siguro ang kaibigan kong si Cheryl na kelangan nating i-develop ang Attitude of Gratitude (read her friendster blog). And we can start with a list of our favorite things. That ought to make us realize how life is actually a lot better than how we usually perceive it to be. Just making the list in my head from the day I saw the movie two days ago filled me with glee.


1. Getting on the platform just as the train arrives. No waiting!
2. Kapag hindi siksikan sa MRT tapos meron kang good book to read na hindi mo namamalayan ang biyahe
3. Kung ‘yung pila mo ‘yung pinakamabilis umusad
