Movie Review: Twilight


Twilight is Hollywood’s interpretation of the book authored by Stephenie Meyer. It is a highly romantic love story between a vampire and a human. The story revolves around the two lovers, Bella and Edward. Their tale starts off with a boring beginning, girl moves in and meets boy. As the story unfolds, the conflicts that develop make the story evolve into a romantic one with an added spice of suspense and thriller.

Twilight is ideal for teenagers for they can relate with the protagonist’s budding love story. With a lot of romantic pick up lines, you’re sure to get a shiver down your spine. It teaches some lessons about love. It tells the audience to love beyond differences, to deny one’s instincts, and to ultimately protect the other half. The love that the movie presents is an obsessive one.

The movie has awesome visual effects. The vampires’ features and powers are shown in great detail. But ultimately, the highlights of the effects were shown in the climax of the movie.

The sounds were superior. In suspense scenes, the sounds could thump your heart. On the negative, the movie’s romantic scenes have sounds and songs that lacked chemistry.

The actors of Twilight portrayed their roles well. What Robert Pattinson (who played Edward Cullen) lacks in looks, he makes up for his superb and persuasive vampire acting. Through him, you could easily know Edward’s character. However, Kristen Stewart (who played Bella Swan) still falls short in internalizing her character. But nevertheless, her performance was good. Other actors that played supporting roles were also convincing. The other vampires had a stir in their eyes and brought out an aura of fear.

Finally, the movie’s ending is nice. It sure will make the audience watch out for Hollywood’s next installation of Meyer’s Twilight saga.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
