In Scandinavian countries each town elects its own St. Lucia. The festival begins with a procession led by the St. Lucia designee, who is followed by young girls dressed in white and wearing lighted wreaths on their heads singing traditional songs. The festival marks the beginning of the Christmas season…

3 Peas In A Pod***SIN made movie filmed in Australia is a rather unusual film that will make viewers re-examine their views on romance and love. 3 university students studying in Australia (Penny from SIN, Perry from Taiwan and Peter from Korea) are good friends whose lives are intertwined with one another’s. Just before they graduate, the 3 friends decide to go on a road trip. Little do they know, this farewell holiday is a trip that would change their lives forever.

Diana***about the last two years of the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. The biopic focuses on her relationships with heart surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan and Dodi Fayed. How sad for anyone who is so beautiful and seem to have everything but peace of mind and happiness!

Don Jon***Jon Martello objectified everything in his life, his apartment, his car, his family, his church, and, of course, women.  Yet even the finest flings don’t compare to the transcendent bliss he achieves alone in front of the computer watching porn. Dissatisfied, he embarks on a journey to find a more gratifying sex life, but ends up learning larger lessons of life and love thru’ relationships with two very different women.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light – Aristotle  Onassis

  1. There they were joined by many other women of Assisi. For those who could not leave their homes, he later formed the Third Order of Brothers and Sisters of Penance. This was a fraternity composed of either laity or clergy whose members neither withdrew from the world nor took religious vows . Instead, they carried out the principles of Franciscan life in their daily lives.
