Monster High: Haunted part 1

Some nights, I watch this Monster High movie called Haunted. It’s about a ghost called Spectra who wants to find a great story. She heard from Toralei about something. When Spectra posted it on the ghostly gossip. It says “All werewolves of Monster High have fallen through an outbreak of Were-Fleas” Everyone ran away from their werewolf friends. Frankie Stein, Draculaura, Clawdeen and Cleo de Nile were doing a perfect pyramid when Cleo heard that Clawdeen is a werewolf and even got Were-Fleas but there is no such thing as that. They were suddenly shaking until they fell into the water, Clawdeen needed to talk to Spectra about that post. Draculaura was drying her pom-poms when Johnny Spirit gave her a bouquet of flowers. He asked her if she can join Scarah, Operetta and him to float around the mall, but she can’t. Suddenly a little ball flew to Draculaura. She thought it was something but actually she’s being haunted. The next day, the haunting came back and styled her hair. Rochelle asked “How did you get it to do that?”. Draculaura said “You’ll have to ask my ghost friend”. Sirena von boo didn’t remember doing that. She tried to help but that didn’t work. Clawdeen tried to suggest Spectra about the Were-Fleas, then she heard another student said “I heard that Slow-Moe can’t come today because he has Geist-Lice.” She was doing bad gossip again. Rochelle came to her “Draculaura is being haunted!” She won’t let it happen again. She went to the attic and her friends followed, it was actually a transporter to go to the ghost world. They don’t know where they are but a crow and another ghost came out. She said in a reaper voice “You’re not supposed to be here” They were all scared. The ghost introduced herself “I’m River. River Styxx”. Spectra needs to keep the ghost world for a secret to the monster world. Rochelle told River that Draculaura is being haunted. She said “There hasn’t been a haunting since the Red Lady.” It’s a story that every ghost learned when they’re very young. It’s lucky that she’s been captured and locked away. It will take her centuries to pay her debut to society. Suddenly they heard bombs that was coming from Vandala’s ship. She wanted River to sign up for pirating class. She was scared when she see River’s friends. The ship that River has is taking them to Spectra’s old school: Haunted High. Clawdeen was amazed that a whole other school is sitting next to Monster High. They were close to the school, so they need disguises so they don’t attract too much attention. They thought they can go through the door but not they were solids, so Spectra opened it for them. Rochelle was curious about the chains that the students are wearing. They were actually detention chains courtesy of Principal Revenant. There are all different chains but they all work the same way as long you’re in detention you can’t leave Haunted High. Sometimes with extra homework, sometimes you get chores. Vandala said “I have to swab the floors for months to work off my last detention” Spectra needs to still know who is haunting Draculaura. “I say we go to the creepateria and ask around” Sirena asked “Are you sure this is the creepateria?” Clawdeen said “It’s the creepateria all right” Twyla asked “Wow! Who’s the popular ghoul?” Spectra recognized that face that it was her old friend Kiyomi. Spectra introduced her friends. Kiyomi looked at Draculaura awfully. “You seem familiar to me. Have we met before?” Draculaura told Spectra “You’re friend is so colorful.” Spectra said “That’s how Kiyomi expresses her feelings.” Spectra asked a student if there’s a haunting in the monster world. But then she heard another student “Hey check it.” It was Porter Vondergeist painting a picture. But the Hall Moanitors: Present, Past and Future are Principal Revenant’s eyes and ears around the school. Present the leader of someone breaking the rules. Past she keeps on track on every ghost at Haunted High. Future has a predicting of what you are going to do before you do it. Present said “Principal Revenant we have a 1424 in the creepateria.’’ Revenant screamed “It’s that paintergeist again, isn’t it.” Porter complained “Ah come on, it’s ghost paint, it’s not permanent. Hah, you got to have to catch me first.” Spectra felt that she has her first story. Porter was chased all around until he crashed into her.

My Little Christmas Lesson

Sa opinion ng iba, ang Pasko ay para lamang sa mga bata. I detest the idea. Kasi hindi ko na pwedeng i-categorize ng sarili ko as “bata” e (at sure akong may hahampas sa mukha ko left, right and center kung ipipilit kong bata pa ako – gumising ka sa katotohanan!) Pero siempre gusto ko rin mag-celebrate no..at walang pwedeng magasabi na hindi ko ito deserve. Pero ano nga ba ang ibig nilang sabihin?

Ok, kung meron kayong mga bata sa bahay I’m sure alam ninyo ito.

Patutulugin mo sila ng maaga at sasabihin mong merong Santa Claus na magdadala sa kanila ng regalo pag natulog sila, para lamang gisingin muli bago pumatak ang alas dose, so we can tell them ”Merry Christmas.. eto na ang gift mo”. Pipilitin mo silang bumangon para kumain ng niluto mong pang Noche Buena kahit umiiyak sila dahil sa antok. Tapos pag gising na gising na sila at ayaw ng matulog dahil sa kalalaro ng bigay ni santa na laruan…magagalit ka, kasi ikaw naman ang inaantok na sa pagod at alas dos na ng umaga! Yan ang aming scenario.

Naiintindihan nga ba nila kung bakit sila gumigisng ng madaling araw? At kakain ng crepe at 12:30am! Anong meron at may regalo galing ke santa? At sino nga ba itong santa na tinatawag nila..lolo ko ba yan para bigyan ako ng cheap na plastic na bowling set, ka-share ko pa si kulot????

Para sa mga batang 22 months old at 5 years old..ano nga ba ito? (Oh I know…ganti gantihan lang kasi ganyan din ang ginagawa ng mga magulang namin noon! Pasusulatin pa nila kami – charing! ke santa kung anong gusto namin, pero ending hindi rin naman iyon ang natatanggap mo kasi either mahal o kakailanganin talaga ng matinding divine intervention ang mga hinihingi mo.)

So, ang ibig ba nilang sabihin… ang Pasko ay para sa mga batang hindi nakakaintindi kung ano ang ”Pasko”?? E paano naman ang sa mga katulad nating bumibili ng regalo, nagpapakapagod sa pagluluto at nagpupumilit na magcelebrate dahil akala natin naiintindihan natin kung ano ito?

Ang sagot sa tanong ko.. pinakita ng mga anak ko. Hindi man nila alam, pero binigyan nila ako ng isang napaka importanteng leksyon. Na OO dapat nga pala paminsan minsan bumalik tayo sa pagkabata, sa pagka inosente. To those times when we still don’t know how to judge people, we don’t expect much (and get frustrated), to those times we are contented with the basic things we need and that there is such a thing as “nice and cheap”. For an innocent child, it doesn’t matter if its 28 March or 16 September…basta may makakain…Pasko!

Sa mata ng mga anak ko pinakamasarap ang crepe na ginawa ko kahit alanganing hilaw alanganing sunog. Yummy ang meatloaf, ang ilang pirasong ham at tsokolate Eh. Pinaglaruan nila ng husto ang murang murang bowling set – na habang si ate e nagco-concentrate sa paghihilera ng mga pins, si kulot naman e nageenjoy sa pagtutumba nito..hanggang umiyak tuloy si ate..wawa.

At sa gitna ng maingay nilang tawanan at iyakan, tinuturuan naman nila si mommy ng leksyon….not to judge, not to complain. Life is fine, take it easy. Kahit mahirap ang buhay, if we know how to be simple innocent children, we will enjoy it.
