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.

[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!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
