It embraces the eclectic. Think of Guardians as the awkward, geeky cousin of The Avengers. A talking raccoon, a tree-like humanoid, a green-skinned assassin, a revenge-driven Destroyer, and a thief who insists on being called "Star-Lord" make up this band of misfits who have "part of a plan" to save the galaxy.

It's hilarious. Superhero movies have loosened up and become funnier over the years, but this one puts humor front and center. “Why would you want to save the galaxy?!" "Because I'm one of the idiots who lives in it!"

It stars a bunch of familiar faces: Chris Pratt from The Lego Movie and Parks and Recreation, Zoe Saldana from Star Trek and Avatar, Vin Diesel from the Fast and the Furious series, Bradley Cooper from Silver Linings Playbook and The Hangover, Lee Pace from The Hobbit series and Pushing Daisies, Michael Rooker from The Walking Dead (Merle!), pro wrestler Dave Bautista, and finally, homegirl Karen Gillan from Doctor Who (who shaved her head for the movie!). Basically a dream come true for pop culture fans.

It doesn't matter if you know nothing about the comic books. In this age of book-based movies, isn't it refreshing to watch something you haven't read before, no expectations whatsoever, even if the book source does exist? Director James Gunn embraced the relative anonymity of the comic book: "There aren't as many rabid fans of Guardians as there are of, say, The Avengers, or as many Guardians comic books, so I have been able to recreate it more for the screen without worrying that the audience will have a different expectation of the characters." So you can expect less "the book was better than the movie" posts on your timeline.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
