My Must List – week of July 26

It’s been more than a month since I last posted a Must List, so here goes

1. Summer TV shows

I don’t get attached too much with summer TV shows since they almost always become cannon fodder (meaning, canceled before they even had a chance). There are some interesting shows this year, notably Happy Town (think Twin Peaks), Persons Unknown (trying to be the next Lost), The Gates (vampires, werewolves, witches – all in one subdivision!), Haven (a more serious Eureka), Memphis Beat (a detective who moonlights as an Elvis-like singer), Scoundrels (a family of criminals trying to go straight) and my personal favorite, Covert Affairs, which has the potential to be the new, funnier Alias

2. ESPERANZA SPALDING!!!

And yes, I deliberately used all caps. It’s so stupid that I’ve only recently listened to her after several overly enthusiastic recommendations from different friends. But better late than never! Her voice lulls me to sleep every night. And I can’t stop watching videos of her live performances.

3. Good News About Injustice

I’ve always been a big fan of International Justice Mission, and because of my new job, I’ve had the chance to read the first few 10th anniversary edition of this amazing book, written by a former Senior Trial Attorney for the US turned Department of Justice turned CEO of IJM. I firmly believe that Christians should be at the forefront of the fight against injustice, and this book tells story after story of heartbreak, unwavering faith, grace and love.

4. Study all the football league 101s

Even though the World Cup is over, football still has a stronghold on my heart, and I have to familiarize myself with Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, heck, even MLS! The only problem now is where to watch the games, since sports cable channels only show Premier League games.

5. Learn to cook sinigang, niliga, tinola

It’s about time that I personally cook my 3 favorite Tagalog dishes. Let’s just hope I don’t torture my housemates with my “experiments”. Or I don’t burn our apartment down. Or I actually push through with this and not just continue buying fastfood or carinderia food

My Must List – week of June 7, 2010

1. Finish going through almost 15 years worth of old magazines – I don’t want to become a hoarder so I have to get rid of baggage that occupies space. And it’s fun to see old items and pictures that used to be cool, but now looks so dated and amusing

2. Carry on with scrapbooking – Have I mentioned how therapeutic it is? I have absolutely no talent in sketching or drawing so I’m relying on stickers and magazine cutouts to make my memories even more memorable

3. Watch the French Film Festival at Shangri La Mall – and the best thing about it? Il est libre! Click here for the schedule

4. Stay in a coffee shop for half a day and finish reading Joe Hill’s Heart Shaped Box – because I dare not read it in the confines of my room. I can’t remember the last time I got really scared over a book named after my favorite Nirvana song

5. Attend the “Music Moves Hearts” benefit concert

6. Immerse my ears in Broken Social Scene’s new album – Forgiveness Rock Record is as musically satisfying as their previous 3 albums. I might not be able to see them in concert in SG this July, but I can listen to their indie baroque pop to my heart’s content

7. Figure out what I should do next, career-wise – oh right, it will take more than this week to figure this one out
