Nurses and Normalcy
I ended up being happy to find out that it's not an official word, invented by an ex-US president and recently popularized by Bush. Say "We are all hoping that Iraq will be back on its normalcy."
Daniel was also pissed of Americans using the word, he told Jay Leno, it's normality. Watch the funny interview by clicking here. Who could best be talking about normality but the richest teenager in Britain. lol.
Speaking of normality, here are the normal bags of LV S/08 (unlike the SpongeBob ones).
And here's a picture of the show's opening:
Naomi Campbell barely on stage? Poor girl. Anyway isn't it timely to see the show open with women in nursing outfits? The Desperate Housewives Slur-(daw), the record-breaking NCLEX examinees, the record-breaking POEA nursing outbounds..
..and the new Indie film Nars. lol. My friend txted me to say that I have 5 complimentary premiere night tickets on October 24th. I haven't watched a Filipino Indie film for the past 3-4 years, and these free tickets are a good way to watch one.
I have a good feeling that this movie will be good, cause my friend will be playing one of the lead roles, haha.
Should I stay or should I go? This is the question facing most Filipino nurses nowadays. This will also be the question that the upcoming movie Nars will attempt to answer.
Jennylyn Mercado, Jodi Sta. Maria, Agot Isidro, Coco Martin, and Jon Avila portray five graduating nursing students who are at a crossroads in their lives and their careers. Their different stories are a cross-section of society's nurses. Each character reflects the Pinoy's aspirations, motives, realities, ambivalence, and fears in becoming a nurse.
During the story conference for Nars held last September 20 at the Thompson Square on Tomas Morato Ave, Q.C., the actors and producers of the movie talked about the country's perennial brain drain.
The film's executive producer Carl Balita explained, "Ito pong film na ito ang magbibigay ng mukha sa iba't ibang tao na nangangarap na maging nurse. Sila ang magbibigay sagot sa maraming tanong kung bakit tila lahat ng pamilyang Pilipino gustong magkaroon ng isang nurse.
"We'd like to create a more positive image of nurses. I'd like to tell you that Filipino nurses are the best nurses in the world. They also constitute the biggest nursing force in the world. ‘Yan po ang yaman ng Pilipinas. "Gusto ring ipakita ng film ang realities and socio-economic situation of the Philippines. Maraming issues ang tutugunan ng film, including domestic violence, gender discrimination in the Philippines, at iba pa."
I have one question though. Why would Jon Mullally (sounds sexy, rare, European) change his name to Jon Avila (sounds starlet-like)? Hahaha sorry I just have to ask other people beside myself!
