  7. The First Phone Call from Heaven, Mitch Albom

    7

    ALL of Mitch Albom's books should be made into movies, don't you think? The First Phone Call from Heaven, his latest work, is a handsome novel about a miracle, faith, and redemption. People were getting quick phone calls from their loved ones in Heaven and that is a definite tearjerker in any flick.

  8. The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstein

    8

    Like a dream or a dark fairy tale, The Night Circus is a competition driven novel with a twist of romance set in a circus called Le Cirque des Reves (the Circus of Dreams) in London. Celia and Marco, both magicians, compete in a game where only one can win.  Little did they know that they’d fall completely in love with each other.  With the right special effects, this masterpiece would be a stunning film.

    Witch & Wizard is a dystopian novel of Whisty and Whit Allgood, siblings who are imprisoned, accused of being a witch and a wizard, and sentenced to death. With their magical powers, Whisty and Whit plan their mission to end the horrible regime.

  10. Thirteen Reasons Why,  Jay Asher

    10

    Recorded on 13 cassette tapes, Hannah Baker gives thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life.  Clay Jensen finds out why he made the list and discovers pain and truth that changes his life.  This would make a suspense-filled movie, for sure!

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.
