‘Kimmy Dora’ faces new challenges

IN 2010, Joyce Bernal and Chris Martinez’s “Kimmy Dora” reconfigured the star system when it became a big hit. It also turned Eugene Domingo, who played the twins, Kimmy and Dora, into a star.

Director Bernal thought one movie was enough, but people kept asking for a sequel. She shares, “Sa sequel, hindi puwedeng pareho lang or less than the original. It should offer something new.”

Promise

In “Kimmy Dora & the Temple of Kyeme,” the twins join their father (Ariel Ureta) on a trip to Korea, his homeland, where one of them has to marry a member of a Sang clan to fulfil a promise made by Ureta. The sisters refuse since they’re in love with their respective beaus—portrayed by Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo!

The biggest challenge in filming the “Kimmy Dora” sequel was surviving the bitter cold in the mountains of Korea. Eugene relates, “We shot there at the peak of winter. It wasn’t easy because I had to do the scenes twice since I play twins in it. Gusto kong maiyak sa hirap at pagod!”

The horror element has been incorporated into the story, and a lot of celebrities will be playing cameo roles.

Nothing Else Matters

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know (yeah!)

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
No nothing else matters

Happy New Year!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

Charles Schulz Philosophy

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip. You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” (Charles Schulz)
