Perceiving the unseen world of angels, ghosts or elements from a different plane and dimension is not my sixth sense. It is because what I consider as my sixth sense is my sense of humor.
And this has recently been sharpened and utilized when I recently laughed so hard inside a cinema. It is because of the Tagalog/Filipino movie Beauty In A Bottle that stars Angelica Panganiban, Assunta De Rossi and Angeline Quinto which I, Nengkoy and thirteen other members of my family watched.
Beauty In A Bottle is the type of movie that you would not mind in the end if it was good or bad. But what matters most was the spending of considerable amount of time having a good laughing spell.
The movie flutters basically about the old principles of ‘inner beauty’ and ‘self-esteem’ hilariously being paralleled to having smooth skin, young age, desirable diction and attractive body. I don’t remember when was the last time I laughed this hard on a Tagalog/Filipino movie. It was a riot! It was so funny I was having pits of persistent laughter even by simply seeing the movie’s video loop ads when we were already out of the movie theater.
But if I deeply assess what the movie waves about, maybe the reason why my sixth sense had a good workout is because I can relate. The very same hardships that the main characters in the movie are having trouble about – the rekindling of “the young and beautiful you” – are the very same troubles that I have been irrationally minding about. The theme is so close to my being! I was like laughing at my own reflection!
Laugh at yourself! Hone your sixth sense! See Beauty In A Bottle!
