I really love this film also the novel wrote by Amanda Brown. This is a story of a girl who was dumped by her boyfriend at the time she taught that he is going to proposed to marry him. her boyfriend was a son of a senator and he told her that maybe she is not the right girl for him. And if he is going to be senator someday he would prefer to marry a rich, influential and bright. And it was not her because she was taking up fashion merchandising. That was Elle Wood a blonde sorority queen played the character by Reese Witherspoon, she decided to follow him to law school to get him back but it is very hard to go to the Harvard. With the help of her friends she make it. Upon arriving, her classmates disapprove of her because of her looks and naive behavior, and she discovers that Warner (Matthew Davis) her ex-boyfriend is engaged to another student, Vivian Kensington (Selma Blair). The only friend Elle makes is Paulette, a divorced manicurist at a local salon. Elle later helps Paulette gain custody of her dog back from her ex-husband as well as help her seduce the delivery man on whom she has a crush. And because Harvard has a high standards at her first class the professor shouted at her and ask her to leave the room because she didn’t do advance reading. While she was sitting and crying at bench, the young attorney Emmett Richmond (Matthew Davis) comforted her and gave some tips on how to handle her instructors. After Vivian tricks Elle into attending a party in a Playboy Bunny costume, Elle had a discussion with Warner and finally realizes he will never respect her. Then she decided to study hard also once there, learns she has more legal savvy than she ever imagined.
It made me realize that everything is happen for a reason, sometimes we lose something but we receive much better. And because of the pain, it makes us a better person and we just need an inspiration to do things better. Like what Elle did, her boyfriend thinks that she’s just an ordinary girl no talent and not that smart. But she proves it wrong all the anticipation her boyfriend thinks about her, because after two year she graduated with honors. I wanted to be a lawyer like Elle but things don’t agree like the way I want it to be.
Last November 30, 2012 I visited my hometown in Bicol. I travel by night because it’s comfortable and less traffic than day traveling. I arrived at 5a.m. in Gallego tricycle terminal. Most people there are staring at me, I’ve recognized some faces I but forgot their names. It is really hard for me to remember names. They know me but I don’t know them because it’s been a year since my last visit there. While travelling I was enjoying the cool and clean morning breeze. My arms are freezing even I am wearing jacket. In every barangay that we’ve passed by people are staring like I am a convicted criminal. Then I realized that I have fair skin and it makes me look like a balikbayan. My hometown really changed a lot, the roads were cemented already unlike my last visit it was really rough road. I arrived home at 7a.m. I saw our dogs waiving their tails and they came running then jump at me, they also licked my feet that makes me laugh and I chase them back to the house. They still recognized me even I’m not there for almost a year. At dinner I requested that we grilled the eggplant I saw in the backyard and I put fresh coconut milk, salt and crushed pepper on it. It tasted really good I missed those kind of food that I used to eat when I was a teenager. Like a typical provincial life we slept at 8p.m. and woke up at 4a.m. because my father is working in the farm, he is walking almost 1 hour to what we called linang or the farm. So he needs to wake up early. While I was cleaning at the kitchen and my sisters are watching TV, the chickens are making unusual noise. I was wondering what it is because I feed them already so I go outside the house and looked at trees where they were staring at something. I can’t see it clearly, so I called my younger sister to bring me my eyeglasses. And when I saw it was a hawk owl, I called my mother to come outside. I asked her why there is an endangered species of bird there. She told me that the forests are now depriving because of kaingin and cutting trees to make coal. And last October some people in the mountain catch 3 wild boars at bating (it is use to catch wild pig and dear). She told me also that our neighbor catch wild cat or what we call musang it looks like a little fox. My father catches at the farm a wild chicken our folks call it labuyo with chicks while he was pasturing our cows and carabaoes, and he is taking care of it he said that if he let it go some people might cook it. It is a tiny chicken like Chinese chicken. I don’t have camera when I visited the farm so I am not able to take picture of it.
The natural habitats of wild animals are now disturbed so it makes the animals to panic. I feel pity for those animals it is sad to say that the future generation won’t experience to see the beautiful forest that I love to hike. Before, during my high school days I love to climb in the mountain, and I get a lot of different wild fruits like guava, kurumbot, balig-ang (wild duhat), malawmaw (tiny wild grapes) and the leaves of it used for inasiman a typical Bicol dish, I also get wild orchids like waling-waling, pasdak. And now because our forest is destroyed I will not experience it again but it is all in my memories. And I am glad that my mother was taking care of my orchids and pasdak that now in our antique jar. My mother told me that they are now also experiencing flash flood. And the river where I used to swim when I was a girl is now dying and they are getting their drinking water at Maniknik. It is a mountain where they can only get the fresh and clean spring water. Because the population in Mansalaya is getting big, I am afraid that when I come back to visit there again it will be polluted place like here in Manila. And I can’t swim on a clean river again. People are now careless and don’t care about the environment that gives them what they need. Also our government is not taking any actions to solve that problem. So I promise to myself that if I graduated and get much money I will make a reforestation project on our timber land.
Our quilbay river spill way, it is called quilbay or killbay because every year tourist people are drowned here.

I am Jenelyn Rombaon 23 yrs.old, a working student taking up Mass communication Technology and working as Process Specialist at Lloyd’s Financing Corporation. I love to travel,listening to music, reading books and magazine, and i also like to watch movies.
I do like Science fiction series and movies like Doctor Who a time travelling alien using a police box common sight in Britain in 1963, when the series first aired as his travelling machine. He was known as the Doctor. It is longest TV series in Britain because the writers are very creative and good when it comes to SciFi.
Traveling was one of my hobby and my recent travel was in Club Balai Isabel at Talisay Batangas. I have seen the beautiful and famous Taal Lake.
Its really cold and it has different kind of fish and lots of weeds under water.
I love listening to music specially love songs, but I don’t like rock music it makes my head ache.
