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 bought the Special Edition DVD box worth PhP1595

I just love this mockingjay pendant!

And hey! There is an archery coupon inside!

It's my first ever Hunger Games event! I hope to be part of more! Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

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
