SHERLOCK HOLMES: MURDERS IN THE NORTH REVIEW

Nanood. Napahanga. Napakagaling.


The Philippine setting of Sherlock Holmes is a definite one kind of mystery with a humorous lines and gestures as well as the virtuous performance from the female version of Sherlock Holmes, who delivers more British way of acting to the way Dr. John Watson is so smooth in speaking his lines and his versatile action. The two are going to solve the problem or case about the mysterious deaths in the North village, leading them into the truth about the real interests of a wealthy businessman and mayor. Whatever the production team creates different lightning angles and one-shot performances of some students in the limelight, even the whole plot is interesting yet so complex, this play deserves to praise creatively and critically.

For creativity, this play has a complete and nice scene and design despite of its small location, with different scenes that soothes the mystery-thriller more conducive to ask "What will happens next?" and its original idea makes me happy and more natural.

For critically, this play has a combination of humor, drama, and mystery that is so extrusive. The performers not only act well but they gave their chance to present their talents. The choice of songs and background itself are more thrilling, going "kilig" too much, and also "matched" expectations in creating the scene more memorable and explainable. The choice of writing is similar and original, making the lines spoken is smooth and rough, nothing more nothing else. The production is quick and prepared well, making the time pace relaxed.

Overall, without the flaws, Sherlock Holmes: Murders in the North goes with a quick setting of mystery-thriller that thrills our seat unthinkable and satisfied. Can't get over to the scene that is so kilig and compete with the real protagonists. Making the quality better, solid performances are stronger than ever. But it reminds me of Gray: The Musical that dominates the strong acting and performance skills of each students.

It is one of the fresh plays in La Salle offered and performed by the DLSU-D Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in English 3rd Year students. I hope that there will be a re-runs in the future.

Yes, I would love to see this play ASAP. Make it more adventurous and thrill-seeking. #SherlockHolmes #Mystery

P.S. I am a fan of the Sherlock Holmes mystery stories, even if I didn't watched the modern one (TV).

THE SILENT HELPERS: AN OPEN LETTER

"Action speaks louder than words."


That's the time Almers give us a real impact for the millennial people. Whenever they have dirt inside and outside the rooms, they are here to serve and clean the surroundings, without any hesitations. I really never doubt about them: their normal competency and their good and simple attitude. Everywhere, I always saw them watering the soil, cleaning the floors, spending time with other people to get along with them, helping the students in any situations, and humbly making an honest reception to the students with a bit of good deed and honorable reputation. They doing their job as a human because these workers have families to carry and they are always rely on these workers who have determination to work hard and serve hard for the University as well as the manpower agency that they were work for. 
For more than 18 years, despite of some irregularities in the last 4 years, they are now leaving the university. And literally, that's sa…

FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL

I was once became isolated in the world
Until everyone notices me with some gifts
And it becomes a precious blessing to the class
For once and for all, the history's invented.

Beyond expectations, became a real person
In the eyes of God, a clear view wanders around
The greatest gift no one saw and already know
For once and for all, everything's so bright to see.

I was once became communicative with them
Until the day that became can't understand
The words that I have to reach out the fellow friends
For once and for all, the prey became the shame beast.

The memory cannot analyze the real facts
On the things that are mess to look like an night owl
Standing about experience that is so rabid
For once and for all, things go dis-illuminate.

I was once became disillusioned by events
And it strikes like a lightning bolt above the hill
Because of conspiracies spreads like a red bull
For once and for all, division requires strange things.

And behold the eye of the real, feisty tiger
