My name is Stela Maris, (Latin: Star of the Sea). I'm 21 years old and I live in the Philippines.
I started blogging since high school and it was in Tabulas where I got my first blog. I blog about life itself - living and dealing with it. I got lots of things in mind - how I wish I could do all of them. :)
You should know by now that I love anything about cupcakes and ribbons. :) I always watch cooking shows like Top Chef and what inspired me a lot are the kids in Junior Masterchef. I hate what's boring. I love what's interesting.

In the mid-1970’s, a homely, friendless Australian girl of 8 picks a name out of a Manhattan phone book and writes to him; she includes a chocolate bar. She’s Mary Dinkle, the only child of an alcoholic mother and a distracted father. He’s Max Horowitz, living alone in New York, overweight, subject to anxiety attacks. He writes back, with chocolate. Thus begins a 20-year correspondence, interrupted by a stay in an asylum and a few misunderstandings. Mary falls in love with a neighbor, saves money to have a birthmark removed and deals with loss. Max has a friendship with a neighbor, tries to control his weight, and finally gets the dream job. Will the two ever meet face to face?
I was really attached to this movie. A kind of story you won’t read everyday. It’s Mary Daisy Dinkle, an 8 y/o and Max Jerry Horovitz, on his mid 40’s. Mary was teased everyday at school because of her birthmark on her forehead and she only desires to have a friend. Max was suffering from obesity and psychological disorder; he manages his anxiety attack the only way he know and that is to eat lots of chocolate burger. Mary’s parents died, went to college and she studied psychological disorders, hoping to find a cure for her friend. She even made it as her thesis and finally a book which leads to Max’s extreme anger. Mary suffered and felt sorry. She sent Max a can of sweetened condensed milk with a note saying “I’m Sorry”. Time passed they stopped communicating. On the other hand, Mary was left by her husband, who was her childhood neighbor and went to New Zealand. After Max was settled and balance again, he wrote Mary and sent her his collection of The Noblets, which was a sign that he forgive Mary. Max even invented his sweetened condensed milk for Mary. When Mary arrive at New York to see Max, she saw Max on his apartment looking happy as he made his last sweetened condensed milk. Mary personally saw Max. He didn’t.
