How I Finally Found The OPPO F3 Sarah Geronimo Limited Edition Smartphone

 

 Life’s lesson that Finally Found Someone showed us, if it’s meant to be yours, then it’s meant to be. A few days ago I was a part of an event raffle and the set-up was to draw up stub from a bowl with corresponding prizes on it. With only three stubs left, I picked up a stub that says “I won P1000 gift certificate from  a clothing brand.” Not bad. But you know what? The remaining two stubs had the major prizes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Is The Best Friendly Neighborhood Movie Ever

 

 Okay. Tobey Maguire’s webslinger paid attention closest to the costume of the Amazing Spider-Man but what we can say more to Tom Holland’s version is the childhood feel that resonates with the look of Queens’ friendly neighborhood superhero in this film franchise from what it is in the cartoon and comic book.

Even celebrity host and entrepreneur RJ Ledesma noticed interesting similarities to Spider-Man: Homecoming from its cartoon and comic book counterpart. “There were two […]
