2017 has been a blessed year for Amiciness. Forgive me for using “blessed” (my vocabulary is very limited HAHA) but yeah, many good things happened this year. Viewership is continually growing strong even in our Youtube account. Thanks to followers of our regular and new content. We are also proud to have won a number of contests that helped us make a small mark in the internet world.
Amiciness has been up for three years now and it’s what makes me sane amidst the ups and downs of my life. Ito na lang ang pinanghahawakan ko, guys! In this post, I’m recapping the highlights of our very colorful 2017. I thought I wouldn’t survive the year but I did. #grateful 🙌
Dear readers, this is Amiciness’ 2017 year in review…
Last night, due to heavy traffic, I randomly watched Diary ng Panget without any expectations at all. I just knew that this was an adaptation of a published online novel with the same title. (I was not really a big fan of the book but I blame my demographic.)
Nadine Lustre shines as Eya a.k.a. Panget, a scholar in the posh Willford University. She works part-time at her aunt’s carinderia, where she meets Chad (Andre Paras), “the ideal guy” who is desperately in love with Lorraine (Yassi Pressman). Lorraine is a nice young British-Filipino girl (with a bad British accent, kidding!) that eventually becomes Eya’s bestfriend. Lory is in love with Cross (James Reid), ”the monster heartthrob”, a typical rebel with unresolved childhood issues. He hides his vulnerability by being mean and just generally destructive.
To cope with her financial needs, Eya finds another job. Unknowingly, she applies and is hired as Cross’ personal maid. Immediately, she experiences first hand how monstrous Cross is. The challenge does not stop there. People start to notice that they know each other and they seem “close”. Girls crushing on Cross start to wonder if they are an item (an odd one for that matter) or not. Cross takes this to his advantage to further mess with Eya, by telling everyone that he and Eya are indeed in a relationship.
How will Lory feel about this?
If Chad loves Lory and Lory loves Cross. Who does Cross love? Find out if there’s a happy ending for our resident Panget, Eya.
Diary ng Panget is still showing. Give the movie a chance and watch it. Trust me. You will not regret it.
