The Sini-Gang are pinoys depicting a slice of Filipino-American life in Virginia Beach, VA via a weekly, light-hearted Podcast. We discuss anything and everything, and we call 'em as we see 'em through our Filipino-American eyes. Don't take us too seriously though, we don't.

Filipino Word of the Day : kawawa - pitiful

a few corrections before the flood of emails comes to tell us how wrong we are:
-Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves remade a korean movie called Il Mare (to be known in the US as The Lake House)
-The new Superman movie is called Superman Returns.
-Christopher Reeve acted in the made for tv remake of Rear Window after his accident
-We are wrong about Lent ending on Palm Sunday, it ends on easter but you don't count sundays when counting the 40 days.
-We've probably never used the word of the day in its context correctly, so why should we start now.

Here\'s a question maybe you can answer for me on the next show. I got drunk, and was thinking of things to give up for lent and before I had a chance to really think it over, I ended up giving up p0rn. I know, I know... WHAT WAS I THINKING??!!! At least I didn\'t choose to abstain from sex. Determined to keep from failing, I wanted consult the Sini-Gang, since you guys are experts when it comes to the finer aspects of p0rn, (no offense to Candy). What defines p0rn? Does this mean phone-sex is out? What about erotic reading, and of course Victoria Secret catalogs? I\'m posting anon, but my circumstance is legit. Help a bro out and help me keep on the staight and narrow till Easter.

Jess,

I\'m not taking the role of the Sini-Gang\'s porn expert, (We\'ve never actually figured out who should have that title.) but I\'ll try to help you out. Putting aside the obvious examples of porn, determining what should be included in your Lenten sacrifice really depends on how far you\'re willing to take it. If you\'re going \"hardcore\" Lent, then that mean\'s everything that you mentioned is out. I would then define \"porn\" as any material that would elicit sexual arousal. But your message seems to indicate that you\'re not willing to go that far. So my suggestion to you is take some time and think about what you\'d be comfortable giving up and then give up a little more so that you\'re out of your comfort zone. Whatever you give up should feel like a sacrifice. But don\'t set yourself up for failure. If you need to, actually write down the rules. (But watch out for friends who take pleasure in nitpicking the guidelines you set up or in offering hypotheticals that will send you into a quandary. see Episode 39)

Me and the BF liked Il Mare. The lead actress is the same one in My Sassy Girl (Jeon Ji Hyun). Boogy, you should check out http://youtube.com for videos there. I typed in Jeon Ji Hyun and a bunch of her CMs and MVs came up. Some are just too funny. We also liked Ditto but I think The Classic (same director of My Sassy Girl) was better. Another romantic comedy I liked is the Chinese movie, Turn Left Turn Right. There\'s a lot of korean romantic comedy movies out there. I think Please Teach Me English is good. The actor is from Volcano High. Anyhoo...

I wonder if the The Lake House is going to be good. I like Sandra and Keanu.. I liked Speed.. so I wonder...

You should watch Jailhouse 41 Female Convict Scorpion. The lead actress only has 1 line in the whole move. It\'s a WIP film.
