Welcome to Your District!: The Hunger Games Blu-Ray, DVD, & VCD Launch

Happy Hunger Games! Recently, I have become a Hunger Games fan. It all started with the movie. It so good! The plot. The special effects. The actors and actress. Everything! You can read my The Hunger Games Movie Review by clicking here

My fascination with Katniss, Peeta, and the country of Panem grew when I read the books. Honestly, you will read in  my movie review that I wasn't impressed at first. But after watching the movie and having known the plot, I have decided to give the books a chance. It was a blessing in disguise as we had no internet connection at home due our epic fail ISP. It gave me time to read. The Hunger Games book presented a good story with a plot that entails socio-political aspects. At last! A popular book with substance! Watch out for my book review of the trilogy soon! 

So back to the topic... The Hunger Games home video is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray. The launching was held on August 25, 2012 at SM Megamall Event Center. Lots of Hunger Games fans came to this much awaited event!


The ticket for the event. :)
Of course, Blu-Rays, DVDs, and VCDs were available for sale. I like the special edition Blu-Ray or DVD which included a functional box with the officially licensed mockingjay pendant (though I wished it were a pin instead). 
Blu-Ray and DVD on sale with a preview on the right side. :)

More stuff for sale. :) 
And my favorite part! The entrance to the event! It was so totally Hunger Games as it was written: Welcome to your District! 
The grand entrance! 
The Stage!

Previews from the Home Video were played at the stage. Other than that activities from different booths provided the Hunger Games fever as we know it!

Feel like Katniss in the Archery Booth!

Madamme takes her turn on being the archer.
The Capitol Look A-Like is my favorite as I got the chance to don on costumes! I like cosplay and I just couldn't resist! The girls at the booth were very accommodating as they helped me with my hair, makeup, and clothes. 
Look at all those props!

My version of the Capitol look! Is it near the Effie Trinket look?
 Lastly, there was the District ID booth. The first 150 buyers of the Hunger Games home video got a customized District 12 ID. Sorry fellow Tributes, I don't have a photo of it or of the booth as it was the busiest one.

On stage, the programs consisted of Scavenger Hunt, Best Character Dress Up, and raffles! Yay! 
Contestants of the Scavenger Hunt battle it out.
Here are my photos of a few Katniss Everdeen cosplayers, lead by the event Katniss Ms. Tza Gomez of Cloud Nine cosplay group.

My day was made complete as I won a T-Shirt from Pioneer Blu-Ray and DVD players. I went home right away to enjoy my Hunger Games loot: 


I won this keychain at the Archery Booth.

I just love this mockingjay pendant!

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!

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
