#SalimbalSketches: Best Picture

#SalimbalSketches returns! It's been a while since the Oscars -- guess you can tell we've all been kind of buried in work -- but for those of you planning a movie marathon over the next few days (the tail end of Holy Week is a public holiday in the Philippines) here are some tributes by Salimbal members to their favorite films of 2014… and a picture of a girl and a dog form Cristina, because when she saw "Best Picture" as our theme, she immediately thought that it simply must be an image of a cute dog with a cute girl. Never change Tina ;)

After Lambana

Lambana, the realm of the Diwata, has fallen, the Magic Prohibition Act has been signed into law, and there is something wrong with Conrad’s heart. Only magic can delay his inevitable death, and so he meets with Ignacio, a friend who promises to hook him up with Diwata and magic-derived treatments, illegal though this may be.

But during the course of the night, Conrad may just discover Lambana’s secrets – and a cure to save his life.
