On theaters!

So I've been going to the cinema a lot lately.
Here you have the movies that I watched, rated and with my opinion about them. 
{Even though I'm a film student, my opinion is not universal, and does not use to coincide with general opinions..}

The Family

I think this is the first movie that I saw on theaters since I got in Santa Fe. Stars Robert de Niro, and it's a story about a mafia family from NY that moves to France to start a "new life"

It was a fun movie, but I expected more from De Niro, so I guess I will rate it with a 6.5.

Runner, Runner

Justin Timberlake is a poker player who sees imself involves in shady deal.
Do not loose your time watching it, it doesn't worth it {even to see Justin Timberlake...}
4.0, and I am really generous.

The Counselor

Even with so many stars in its cast {Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender or Cameron Diaz}, it is not good enough. It seems like they had a great story that was not good reflected.

Last Vegas

Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline. Not more to say. A group of old friends meet in Vegas to celebrate the wedding of one of them.
It's a good movie that you shouldn't see if you are not prepared to let your tears go down.
For me it as a 7.5-8.

Don Jon

My favorite one of this year, there's no doubt. Watch the trailer, it says everything about it.
For me it's a 9.

Thanks for your comments!!

It's never too late! Happy Halloween!!!

I have various reasons to the title of this entry: first of all, it's never too late to be back, so I am back!! After months without taking care of the blog, here I am again!!
It's never too late to be back in the places that you love, and this is why I am in Santa Fe again. The place that I love with people that I love.
And also, it is never too late to celebrate Halloween!! Here you have y two costumes for this year:

I was Amy Winehouse in the first Halloween party.

{here I am with Johnny Bavo}

And I came from the Amazonas for the second party!!
As you can see, every costume was amazing, I have really creative friends!!
My life has changed a lot lately, there has been a lot of new things, new amazing friends, people who are not anymore... so I can say, kind of, that I am a "refreshed person" {never a new one!!}
So thank you all for reading me!! I'll be back soon!!

    mexican kitchen is back

    As I told several times before, I'm a huge huge huge lover of mexican food. If I had to choose one fav country when it's about food, I couldn't choose between China and Mexico.
    And as I also told you, I miss a lot Santa Fe. I miss a lot of things, but one of the things that I miss most, is the food.
    That mix between american and mexican food is unique! And I really really miss some days on the cafeteria of the university when the menud was baked cheese with pasta or tamales.
    So today, we're going with tamales!!! A really delicious mexican dash, spicy, of course, but REALLY yummy!!

    Actually, there are a lot of different kinds of tamales: pork, chicken... but my favorite is the green chile and cheese tamales!
    Actually, I think this is a more difficult recipe than others that I posted on the blog, so I tried to find the most simple recipe on the Internet, and I found this one on this blog



    2 cups instant masa
    2-3 cobs of corn (or 1 can)
    2 cups water
    2 vegetable bullion cubes
    1 cup vegetable shortening (optional)
    1 cup diced roasted green chilis
    20-25 large corn husk wrappers
    1 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco (farmers's cheese)
    1 cup chopped cilantro


    • soak corn husks in water
    • steam corn on the cob for 20-30 min 
    • warm water to dissolve bullion cubes (or use 2 cups veggie broth)
    • mix together masa, broth, corn and shortening so that the consistency is thick like mashed potatoes
    • take 3-4 husks and rip into long strips that are about 1/4 in.
    • place about 3-4 Tbsp masa into the center of the corn husk
    • top with desired amount of green chilies, cheese, and cilantro (avoid overstuffing)
    • fold over the two lateral sides of the husk
    • fold over the top and then the bottom flap
    • make sure the bottom overlaps the top 
    • tie husk string so that it is taught but not too tight
    • repeat until ingredients are gone
    • place in steamer for 45 min to 1 hr (or until tamales puffed up)
    • serve hot with red and/or green sauce


    mexican food, just makes me drool!
