Bogart the Explorer interviews Hugh Jackman!

March 15, 2015
By

I am a huge fan of Bogart — he is spontaneous and his jokes are original. He was in an air freshener commercial before — I remember that I wasn’t really paying attention; I was so surprised when I saw that the guy talking was not Australian but Filipino!! In this video, he interviews Hugh…

Language learning update – March 8

Ta-daaa! Look who made it through week 2. And only one black item. Whew. I am getting used to a routine and it’s not so bad. In general, I tend to keep Japanese in the morning and Hungarian in the afternoon. In the evening, I try to brush up on items by “watering” things on…

Filipino Nathan Hermida on The Voice

March 10, 2015
By

Seventeen year old Nathan Hermida joins the likes of JR Aquino and Chesa to pass the Blind Auditions of The Voice. He sounded so smooth and mature, and he got Adam and Christina to turn around. 

Check out Blake’s face at the 1:29 mark. :) I also loved how Pharrell requested that he play again. I really wish he will go far in the competition. I am for Team Pharrell again, but I am rooting for Nathan!

Here is a commercial for ING, featuring the awesome Ewan Mcgregor — who decided to change his name to “Ewann” Of course, I didn’t understand what he said in Hungarian — but he made the language even sexier than it already is :)  Here is the link, see his awesomeness for yourself: http://index.hu/mindekozben/poszt/2015/03/03/ekes_magyar_nyelven_segit_eligazodni_ewan_mcgregor_a_biztosito_nevvaltasaban/

Language learning update – Week ending 1 March 2015

As I said previously, I have re-evaluated my language goals and have put together a daily plan to ensure that I am on track with these goals. My reaction to this first week? Whew! I survived!! It wasn’t easy, especially at the end of the weekday, when for some unknown reason, work started to pour in.…

Circle of Five

A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with? Inspiration from Daily Post I didn’t even have to think hard about this.  Balázs – my favourite reason to lose sleep you…

Super Language Overhaul

I have a confession: I don’t think I would succeed in my very first italki challenge. It was going well and I had this plan of taking 5 sessions of French first, then Hungarian second. I finished all my sessions for basic French almost midway into the challenge. Then after that, I booked another package…

But probably not N1… ============================== The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) finally goes twice a year in the Philippines (Manila, Cebu and…

It’s very early in the morning and the January air is cool, your bed warm and comforting. Your phone alarm goes off. You sleepily reach for it and you hit the snooze button the first time. Your brain is nagging you to wake up. Time to get up, sleepyhead. Get off your ass now or…

I don’t usually like consecutive music posts on my blog but this has been my earworm for the past several days. Yes, it’s your fault, Prince Turo Rudi I’ve listened to this song countless of times before but I didn’t know what its title was. Anyway, I found a Japanese translation of the song. The…

As I said before, I do not usually listen to rap music. But hey, rap it in Hungarian and I will be your fan. I am liking this song the more I listen to it. I like it more now that I can understand bits of it. Little by little. Baby steps. See, music is…

Whew! It was a whirlwind in 2014! I didn’t realise how much has happened until I narrated my entire year to my surfing sister, Desiree. Last year was big, fast and fun. I feel that 2015 will even be bigger, faster and more awesome! To start the year right, I signed up for the italki…

I am really trying to reduce the number of items on my Christmas wish list, and that means I won’t wish for the Harry Potter set with redesigned covers. But the below are the bare essentials of gift giving to me. So when you pay homage, you know what to bring 1. a Mahina mermaid…
